Manga thread. The theme of this thread is "short works."
What are you reading? What have you finished recently? What have you dropped? What do you wish that you had dropped?
I recently read "Journey to the End of the World", since it was dumped in an earlier thread. Great story.
It's a surreal 1-volume manga about a man who has a life crisis while experiencing the monotony of his everyday life, and takes a different path to work, travelling through various lands. He experiences unbelievable and terrible things (and becomes a pirate captain). By NIishioka Kyoudai, the same pair that did "God's Child."
What short work do you wish was translated?
What are short works? Anything under 1 volume and was intended to be?
How much of Garo/AX has been scanned? I'm wondering if those are treasure troves of manga that haven't been scanned, or if they're stuff that's already in other anthologies, etc.
I'm currently at a halt, sort of undecided.
I'm finally at Punk Hazard in One Piece, but I don't know If I should continue or start on reading Magi.
I would assume 1-3 volumes.
There has to be like 2 chapters left, it's so depressing.
They're mostly not found in anything else. Ax has a single english licensed volume (which hasn't been scanned either). Akairo Elegy, Pushman and Palepoli are some examples of manga in Garo. But there's a lot more out there.
And this is all the Garo you can pretty much find raw online. Although they're pretty poor scans.
Recently finished Mother Sarah. Read a bunch of josei oneshots for no real reason. One by Unita Yumi, of Usagi Drop fame.
I figured. I'll work on buying back issues of Garo and scanning them. Hopefully the earlier ones aren't mundo expensive.
The blog dude said that the ones before the date he got were quite a bit more expensive I think. How much, I don't know.
All of them. Simple as that.
AX is the one that's still ongoing, right?
Yeah. Garo died roughly at the end of the 90s, early 00s.
Recently read Le théâtre de A. Good stuff. I liked "I am a piano."
Currently reading Becchin and Mandara, and it's enjoyable. This is also my first Matusmoto Jiro, so there's that. Are his other works just as good?
Also, I'm kind of interested in COM. It gets even less exposure than Ax and Garo. But I guess that's to be expected since it didn't last very long
Nakamura Asumiko is a pretty interesting author. I think I've read bits and pieces of the collection, but never the entire thing.
Generally, yeah. I think I like Citron the least, and Freesia a bit less than the others, but yeah, I enjoy his other works equally.
The one that Tezuka started? I've been wondering about that as well.
They're pretty good. All but one of his series are translated (Joshi Kouhei, his current series, isn't being translated), so you have plenty to read.
Yeah it is. And I imagine no one's touched it even more. I wonder if anyone even has copies of it.
Getting into Dowman Sayman, since Nickelodeon and Voynich are off of hiatus. I was surprised to read that Voynich is going to end at 3 volumes. How's the plot going to wrap up in the next 10 chapters?
>lasted 5 years and then died
Jesus Tezuka you can't compete with a giant that has a foothold already.
Daily reminder that Latin still need translation.
I see sporadic issues on Amazon JP, and an anthology up until 1970 of selected works.
>「ガロ」「COM」漫画名作選1 1964-1970 [コミック]
Only the waifu chapters were translated, huh?
Picked up Citrus recently. It has inspired me to go on a yuri binge, so tomorrow or the day after I'm going to read a shitload of yuri.
Can't be worse than some of the failings he had with anime.
I think Seven Seas picked that up as well.
>COM (コム Komu?) was a manga magazine started in January 1967
I'm slightly confused. Ah, it's a Garo, Com collection.
Be sure to look up his oneshots. He has many of them. So, so many. Most of which aren't translated.
I'm trying to get into oneshots, but there are so many, and Batoto doesn't have a oneshot filter. MangaUpdates does, so I'm going through that. I was going through BakaBT's oneshots until it went 404. I'm also going through AB's oneshots.
Reading Semi-Eternal Happy End.
yeah,i didn't really found anyone willing to tranlsate from chinese yet,so any help would be good.
Did someone dump that recently or am I getting names mixed up?
Be sure to read what's in the wiki, first of all.
Also the archives, I remember a guy asked for One Shots in another manga thread.
>tfw no Boku wa Mari no Naka
>tfw no Spirit Circle
When will someone rip CrunchyRoll manga?
I recently finished reading Slam Dunk and I would have to satisfy have to say it was one of the most satisfying endings in any sports manga.
>Journey to the End of the World
What did the leather bag mean?
Is the rest of Spirit Circle even on CR?
Read sexy voice & robo recently.
I heard so.
I recently picked up All you need is kill, its alright so far. Same mangaka as death note and bakuman, anyone picked that up?
Isn't it being made in a movie?
I have no idea.
Yes it is. Also, the reason they dropped Space Brothers is because they picked up Spirit Circle.
That's a manga? Thought it was just an LN.
I found the LN to be very mediocre.
>pick up a series
>drop it soon after
Great appearances there, Crunchy.
The LN isn't that great, but the manga could develop to become somewhat better, couldn't it?
I mean, Obata is drawing it, and that's already a plus.
Maybe they'll change something and make the story better.
>read Family Zoo
>what the fuck
Someone needs to pick up Ika Musume, damn it.
Bonnouji, thanks to the recent manga dump.
With its three volumes, I guess this counts as a short work.
I really love the flow of the story and Oyamada is such a suave guy.
How's Abandon the Old in Tokyo?
I was searching for an easy to read manga, where the pages just flow and you don't have any difficulties to follow the story, or anything of the sort.
Anyone knows some good titles?
Try Gon. Absolutely no dialogue at all and quite charming.
I have preference for medical manga like Jin/Iyruu or groundhog day scenerios... Can anyone help me with that?
Didn't that resume recently? And yet, I can't find any scans that have the new chapters in them.
It ended... it was a fun ride.
Going through my Shintaro Kago backlog, on Brains right now.
whats his best work in your opinion?
what the fuck it ended?
God damn was awesome ride. Cute manga and none of those retarded plot devices like sudden conflict and love triangle shit
If only KnM was like that..
I'm fond of Brains and Paranoia Street.
I need to read the most recently translated chapter of 7seeds
The art is off putting though...
I was excited to catch up so I wrote the comment earlier then I went through the manga without realizing I didn't post the reply.
I had the empty hole feeling after I went through it like I get when I finish a series I am fond of. Hate that feeling
It is a bit yea but its pretty good manga.
Does anyone here have an artstyle that makes it so that you can't read a manga because you can't stand its art?
It doesn't have to be necessarily bad art, just something that you can't stand.
I, for one, can't stand the generic shoujo art.
It could be a 10/10 story, but if it's shoujo fuck that.
I guess generic Yaoi also counts.
Alright I'll give it a shot.
See >>101390789 and >>101390854
Anything that is shoujo related, I really can't stand it.
Ok, you got me hooked on to it.
Last short thing I read was Wicked Eyes Fly to the Full Moon by Fujita. It was pretty awesome. I love Fujita's art. He does insane faces almost too well.
The same as >>101391038 and >>101391047. Generic shoujo turns me off. It's just terrible.
Why should I care?
Not being an ass, but I've never heard of it. Why does it need a daily reminder?
