General Manga Discussion

Post by Homura » Sun Nov 23, 2014 1:13 am

You are welcome to talk about anything related to manga! For example, your current reading, your recommendation, your review, your expectation, etc.
I guess we need a thread for our manga people :P

Wow. I was just wondering (about a week ago) why there wasn't a thread for this. I felt a need to rant about how shitty the last chapter for Koe no Katachi was, but don't feel like it any more :lol:

I think I will put up an obligatory review of Iris Zero sometime this weekend.

I'm currently trying to get through completed manga series.
Sankarea: set up for a really good ending, and it's destroyed.
Claymore: really good ending, and there's even room for a good series to follow.
Kekkishi: haven't completed, but I'm only working on getting to the end.
Mysterious Girlfriend X: was nice, but rather disappointing ending.
Asu no Yoichi: good set-up, nice characterization chapters, but it just kinda died out before the series was axed.
That kinda does it for manga that have an incomplete anime adaption, I think there's others, just haven't gotten to them yet. The anime ended on a good note, MGX has some nice scenes that need to be adapted now. Mostly staying away from manga that are still being adapted right now.

Will probably add more from my list of following when I have more time.

It seems, uniformly, manga has much better character expressions than anime. Some of them are only a panel long, but the impact is huge. And usually great for us visual folk.

Bastion, I suggest you catch up some TV anime. List two reasons.
1. There are indeed some good ones to watch.
2. You can better vote in 2015.

And I strongly recommend you the manga Pandora Hearts. It has a relatively slow pace in the first half, but later it turns to an extraordinary one to read. It's a beautiful manga in several ways.

If you read other threads, you'd know why I haven't watched anime recently (hopefully to be rectified soon).
Pandora Hearts I never really got into the anime, too many other interesting manga to read (got an entire page of them right now), the only reason I read some of them is that they've come to an end (Claymore and Mysterious Girlfriend in particular). I think Naruto is going to get a bounce since it's ended (?).
Read Kaminomi because it finished, the final 'season' was more to finish off the story, it was headed downhill after the second (anime) season.
