>>101799828
buy those comic wallets and store your comics in them, they need to be proper wallets since acidic plastic will damage your collection over time.

Regulate the humidity and amount of UV light in your room too.
>>
>>101799828
You use bags and change the bags every 3 years because by then they won't protect your manga from acid corrosion anymore.
I never changed the bags.

I'm currently reading Akumetsu, I'm on volume 6.

Granted that I have only read around 80 manga series, all of which I more or less enjoyed. This is by far the worst manga I have ever read, and I've read Wolf Guy by the same author. Although Wolf Guy was a trainwreck, it was entertaining to read.

Akumetsu doesn't even offer me shallow entertainment. 80% of the manga is about some stupid kid who preaches on about some conspiracy theorist bullshit about politics with huge fallicies backing him, he is just stupid and naive, and his solution to fixing Japan's economy is by killing any one that is rich and "evil". He has bullshit shounen superpowers that basically don't allow him to die, or to stop existing, so to say. The characters are all one dimensional and I don't care about anyone. The comedy falls flat.

5/10 manga. I only read it for the art, which isn't too great.

I am. I have never dropped a manga before unless it was terrifucking bad and I was sure of it. This is because I always hope to see that a manga will improve later on in the series. If it does and I drop it then I'll have missed out on something good and I can't judge it for what it really is.

I read Kokou no Hito in December and almost dropped it after the first volume, but decided to push on anyway, and I enjoyed it immensely after around volume 3.

Just finished reading this.

I recommend this manga if you like scifi mixed with wacky jokes. And the MC is a 40 years old homeless bum, a nice change if you're bored with all those highschool MCs. Oh, and the MC had a pseudo-incest relationship with his stepdaughter.
TONS of references, though. Most of the jokes will probably go over your head.

Too bad this manga is so short. I really wanted to see the characters and their relationships developed more.

Going on a Fukumoto binge now. Just finished some of his short series, and started on Ten. It's pretty good even though I still don't know much about mahjong. The early chapters had some very Kurosawa-esque moments, so I hope there's more later.
Speaking of which, I bought some Fukumoto raws, including the first volume of Shin Kurosawa. The fact that nobody's even scanned any of it yet after all these months is insane. I know Hox is focusing on Joe right now, but maybe FKMTKrazy has some spare time to work on it.

I think that it's because a majority of the people on /a/ only watch and discuss whatever's new and popular. It's a lot harder to do this for manga, because a lot less content is released per chapter compared to an episode of anime, and there aren't too many scan groups that translate things right when they come out. Also I can't help but wonder if there are people who don't read manga because they think that all good manga get anime adaptations. I've seen a lot of stupider opinions on this site before.

Also, Ressentiment was pretty good. It's too bad that it got canned, because it had a strong start. The author did a surprisingly good job of wrapping it up though, given the circumstances.

It's actually doing surprisingly well. It's had it's low ranks, but it's only breached the bottom 5 once. It's gotten a few color pages, and it even beat Shokugeki no Souma for an issue. Too bad that it's still a prime candidate for the axe since those four new series are coming all at once.

Yeah, I just recently got out of exclusively watching anime and started getting into manga. I'm currently reading DMC and Rosario + Vampire, but I'm tempted to get the whole set for Bakuman since the first four volumes were so good. It's a good thing I didn't watch too much of the anime and spoil the manga for myself. The artwork is just so good.

Is the person you're giving to a guy or girl? Dark Horse has a couple good CLAMP omnibuses and they're a pretty good intro group. I think Solanin would be okay too, there's also a couple great Hagio Moto books but I don't know how a guy would feel about those.

A girl. She's only read a bit of Vampire Knight years ago. I'll look into Hagio Moto and maybe CLAMP, though I don't care much for CLAMP's work myself. Thanks for the reply.

Nostalgia and trend setting
>>
>>101823625
It's mostly nostalgia. The begining is crap, the first few serious battle arcs are mediocre, the DT arc is great, the CB arc is good but suffers a lot because Togashi was experimenting too much and at the end it jumped the shark with the demon world. At least the last arc didn't go full retarded in the end and it had a nice conclusion.

I see all those collections and as impressive as they are I'd rather take a few years to learn Japanese and buy that in original language, feels like a waste to spend so much of stuff that is not in original format.

Well Yu Yu Hakusho aired when I was young and I didn't like it and watched only some episodes so it's not nostalgia for me.
I've almost finished it now, have a volume to read, and I must say that I love how Togashi decided to experiment with the art and with the story.
It's in a completly different league than most other shonen.

7 seeds, it's a post apocalyptic manga where 5 groups of 8 wake up in the future after a meteor crashed and blocked out the sun for several decades. The story is mostly about each of the groups exploring the new land, running into each other and trying to survive. The point where it stands out the most is the characters themselves, each and everyone of them has some sort of background and a couple character flaws. It's one of the few manga series I've honestly been willing to buy, but it's not out in america

That series is one of the top posted threads on /a/ when it gets a new chapter.

If you like it then why wouldn't you recommend it? That statement gives off the air that you read it just to read it, to suffer through to series to see if it gets better, like fairy tail fans. Ergo that you don't like it

Also I really liked Oyasumi Pun Pun, but not a lot of people don't.

>a manga isn't good, but I like it
So, acknowledge that a series is not good, yet you continue to like it? That's completely contradictory, that's like knowing a particular food tastes terrible, yet continuing to eat it, just because.

No, it's not.

>8 years for 20 chapters
why?

Good and bad isn't so fucking black and white, he likes some parts and not others, he reads hoping for more of the good. How much of a douche can you be

>>101830917
Entertainment isn't like food. Some things are so bad they're good or only good in certain aspects.

Besides what the others who replied to you have said, I must say liking something and thinking it's bad are not entirely contradictory.

Finished:
- Lolicon Phoenix: I love Hentai Kamen, and it was basically an even more stupid Hentai Kamen, so I loved it
- Kamiyadori: only read it for the delicious little brown girl. It's typical Kei Sanbe grimdark nonsensical plot.
- Renai Shimasen ka?: short and cute romance manga. I don't usualy like stories with otaku characters, but it didn't lose itself with nerd jokes and the backstory was nice (with the fake confession).
Reading:
- Gamble Fish: stupid and hilarious. There's an arc where the hero battles a rich American girl in a capture-the-flag survival game. His team is made-up of a magician girl (the only thing she actually does is card tricks and getting naked), a yankee who "studied" in America to become the better delinquant (he's got FUCK written on his belt), a teenage prostitute (and a genius at maths, obviously), an ojousama, a fat middle-aged pool hustler, and the useless bubbly comic-relief girl. The other team is made-up of US Green Berets with live ammo. They eventualy all end-up fighting a tengu (?). And of course the whole thing is orchestrated by the big bad who looks like Nosferatu wearing tight leather and using a pimp cane.
- Kyuusen no Shima: nice asses. Don't really care about the plot, and I don't think the author did either.
- Jisatsutou: so good. I wish they had killed Sawada (and Kai) when they had the occasion. This is not going to end well.

You can like eating fast food despite knowing it's absolute crap and it's killing you.

Scan it for justice.

There's a whole load already translated. Certain lots of interesting stuff from the 70s and 80s, that you can buy physically (or rather have to buy physically). You need stuff like Tezuka, Tatsumi, Tsuge, Susumu Katsumata. Nishioka Kyoudai, Usamaru Furuya, Toyoda Tetsuya, Igarashi Daisuke, Taiyou Matsumoto.

You're retarded.

Catching up on Buyuden. It ended recently, so only 12 more chapters to go.

I need to finish this. Too bad about the cancellation, I think everyone hoped the manga would follow the main character to his thirties.

I actually really enjoyed reading it. It really is a shame. I suppose I should eventually get to reading Major.
