So the DDDDD thread made me realize that kissu doesn't really have any threads dedicated to manga that I could find. The focus seems to be too much on seasonal anime. I realize that this is because manga is much harder to find/follow than seasonal stuff as there are no clear guidelines for it and Westerners don't read comics nearly as much as the Japanese do.

Anyway, what manga have you been reading recently? I just read the latest chapter of Shimeji Simulation a few days ago. As with anything made by Tsukumizu so far it is great. Definitely recommend it to everyone here and I do hope it eventually gets an anime adaption as well like SSR.


Not me, I tell myself I should but I never get around to it. It's weird, because it can be very addicting and hard to put down, but it's very hard to start.
Heck, I get into VNs easier.
I think the secret is to get something to read it in bed where it's far more comfortable to read, which I don't have (yet).


File:1648426350400.jpg (60.21 KB,585x464)

please respond


Shimeji Simulation is great, probably my favourite ongoing manga (although I'm only following maybe half a dozen, so that doesn't mean much).

Mainly reading Saigo no Seifuku (part-way through the third and final volume) at the moment. I want to like it, but I can't even remember who half the characters are most of the time and it feels more like a collection of intertwined one-shots than a true series given how little continuity there is between most of the chapters. And, no clue if it is intentional, but something about the atmosphere (even as far as the title) feels weirdly sombre to me for what is in substance a reasonably cheerful CGDCT Kirara manga. Other than that, I'm also reading Makka na Stroke, a single-volume shoujo tennis manga that is stupid enough to be decently entertaining even if it isn't really my genre, and Mikazuki no Karte, a short yuri romance series that is passable but rather dull, in that its premise sets up a lot of potential conflict yet consistently just sidesteps all that whenever it comes up.


File:Chainsaw Man 080 (2020) (D….jpg (168.04 KB,745x699)

Don't really read much manga since it's easier to schedule my time around anime and whenever I pick up a manga I spend a few days reading the entire thing because I can't help myself. Although, I did recently read the entirety of Chainsaw man and it really is great. I have high hopes for the adaptation of it coming out... sometime.


I rarely read manga because most of them rarely get updated, or have long intervals of wait between each new chapter and I can't stand it.


File:Screenshot 2022-04-02 at 0….png (198.41 KB,1698x1556)

You don't like waiting?



I wanted to respond but I don't read anything special lately. The last thing I was exited about was magilumiere but I dropped it when they added some half baked social commentary because I just wanted a cgdct.


File:47d3f136a74140af5c734d574a….jpg (658.45 KB,988x1400)

I keep up with Made in Abyss and Ane Naru Mono. It's a long wait between volumes. Occasionally read other completed works, last one I finished was Ageku Hate no Kanon.


File:Mai_chans_Daily_Life_059.jpg (621.4 KB,1087x1600)

Reread Mai-chan's Daily Life and was surprised at how well it held up.


It's just really hard to talk about manga on smaller boards because there's far more titles to talk about compared to anime but far fewer people who read manga and a far lower chance that at least one of them is going to be reading/have read the thing you're reading.

Earlier this year I read this series called Ijimeru Yabai Yatsu, I had stopped reading at volume 12 because of the lack of scans, but last week I saw that the most recent volumes have finally been uploaded. From the title you might expect some edgy psychological manga about bullying, and that's more or less what it is... for the first few chapters. Then the premise is turned on its head. And then, at some point it goes completely off the rails and turns into a bizarre battle comedy manga with transformations, power levels, and mind games. I'm not even sure if I'd call it "good", but it sure is an entertaining read.

I've also been reading Tokyo Babylon. Even though CCS has been one of my favorite anime for a long time, I'm not familiar with any other CLAMP works besides Rayearth and Chobits, so I figured I should give some of their other manga a try and this seemed like a good one to start with. Oh yeah, and I also read some Kochikame every now and then. Last year I tried tracking down the "lost chapter" that was cut from post-90s pressings because it made fun of the emperor and WW2, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere on the internet.

Yes, unfortunately I'm still forced to use 4/a/ to have in-depth discussions about manga and to find new stuff to read as well. It's a garbage board that I hate nowadays (has been garbage since N/a/ruto but keeps getting worse), but it's still useful for that purpose.


File:1524817284954.png (3.26 MB,1042x1483)

I'm really bad at finishing manga. I enjoy them, but I always get distracted and end up putting them on indefinite hold. I haven't read Shimeji since that one dream chapter that looked like something out of Yume Nikki.

That being said, Hakumei to Mikochi is super comfy. You'll definitely like it if you prefer the cozier side of Gensokyo.


>Last year I tried tracking down the "lost chapter" that was cut from post-90s pressings because it made fun of the emperor and WW2, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere on the internet.
If you're talking about 「派出所自慢の巻」 included in volume 4, some raw scans of it were uploaded within the past year. They should be easy to find.


Huh. Seems it was uploaded shortly after I gave up, I even remember checking the Share search engine and confirming that there were no hits. Nice.

Also, another poster here who reads that? Small world...

4/a/ isn't really that good for manga either to be honest, aside from very popular (albeit non-shonen, mostly) ongoings there's not much talk of manga there either.


Do any of you post in the manga thread on smug/a/? I check it out every now and then.


File:shimeji.JPG (10.59 KB,230x133)

The only things I read are romcom, Tkmiz's mangas and Yotsuba. And for the majority of the time, I don't really care about what I read So I tend to drop the majority of the things I start to read (except tkmiz because that's the only mangaka i really love).


I lurk it.


File:nice page.jpg (181.96 KB,484x760)

i'm glad to know i'm not the only one who has a difficult time catching up to and following manga
i have not yet read anything from him but he seems to be popular with depressed people

right now i only read manga that don't have more than 15-20 or so volumes, which made me enjoy reading a lot more. with how the manga industry is, long-running series often just stop being fun and then maybe even get a bad ending, so i mostly stopped bothering with them.

← is mikkakan no koufuku. finished that one a few days ago. it's nice. i liked it.


would you sell the rest of your lifespan for 3 days with a shab?

File:1552077718932.png (348.77 KB,1027x272)

The fairy manga series is a pretty good SoL. And I just recently finished volume 3 of Zetsubou Sensei.

I have a few dozen manga in my backlog such as Area 51, and A private story on third street, which I will definitely start reading one day.

I've been reading a few series. YKK has been my favorite, recently.

File:adwsadwadw.png (912.38 KB,1414x2048)

An artist I follow that does funny Touhou stuff (I've posted his stuff here like furry Patchy) did a drawing for this Puniru wa Kawaii Slime manga so I read the first chapter. But, it's only available as an edited machine translation so I didn't want to give it much attention. It seems like it has potential, but yeah, machine translation.
"Puniru wa Kawaii Slime". It's about a slime that grew up with a boy and they reached that special age and blah blah romantic comedy?
I just posted a pout from it in the pout thread, too.


File:1650046293461.png (869.81 KB,1251x900)

This week's manga recommendation: Mieruko-chan. It was the most voted show of last year's Fall and I have my doubts about it getting a second season, so get to reading right away.


like this one
anime left me wondering


I read manga when I got flu and bed rest.
i read shimeji, it needs imagination to read and enjoy and currently, my ability to imagine is getting worse.
the last manga that I read are takopi, kunoichi ksubaki, and summer time render.


File:5-o.jpg (649.35 KB,1132x1600)

What does /qa/ think of the new Bagzerk?


File:10-o.jpg (327.55 KB,1500x1064)


Oh, that was fast. Is this a new artist or did he leave some stuff drawn? If it's a new artist, wow that's impressive.


File:16-o.jpg (582.9 KB,1500x1057)

It's Mori (the Holyland artist) + Miura's assistants I think. I like that Griffith doesn't look like a blowup doll anymore, but Guts looks a bit weird in this panel.


That's still really incredible. If you told me it was Miura I'd believe you.
It's been about 4 years since I last read any of this, not a big fan of reading things sloooooooowly so I might catch up to this later.


Despite all the action, it felt very random, for a lack of better word. But it's only a single chapter, not much to really measure it by yet. I'm afraid I also read it while wondering how much of that stuff was from Miura's notes, and how much was added, which certainly doesn't help.


finally, another translated ponko chapter.....
they're coming out so slow, it's going to be literal years before I get to see the end at this rate.....


File:7-o.jpg (856.88 KB,1117x1600)

Yeah, it was just two short chapters with not much to write about. We'll probably get chapters more often from now on though, since Miura used to get yelled at by his assistants for expending too much time on overdetailing stuff.


File:0016-028.png (Spoiler Image,670.66 KB,2109x1600)

I just stumbled upon it, but Shounen Y seems pretty interesting. At this pace it will take them another 4 years to finish translating it though.


What program does kissu use to read their manga? I feel like I always end up just reading online since I've hated every single offline reader I've tried.


Program? You mean image viewer or what? I use honeyview which is the best image viewer of course, otherwise I don't think other types of programs are necessary since manga comes in a .cbz file most of the time nowadays which is very handy for reading entire volumes at once. Reading online is fine too though (as long it's not shitscans of low quality or with ugly watermarks). I alternate between manganato/mangadex/batoto when I read it online.




File:1479572264638.png (456 KB,562x946)

I use MComix on PC and Tachiyomi on tablet.


tachiyomi is so much ahead of the other options that it's not even funny. It's worth putting 100 bucks in a shitty tablet just for this if you read loads of manga


pretty often to switch between mobile to pc, so i use neko


File:023.jpg (1.01 MB,1128x1646)

I read that PSP Persona 2 EP got a fan translation (which turns out to me kind of disappointing? I need to read into that more) but it reminded me that I downloaded the Persona manga a while ago.
It's alright. I'm mostly reading it out of nostalgia because I played through this story like 22 years ago. Damn.


Oh wow, you just reminded me that there used to be a manga and comic book reader program on the PSP. I wonder if there's any lost media out there that was only distributed there. I was looking a while ago but I was having trouble finding anything still preserved.


File:Jin - c013-018 (v03) [Patr….jpg (1.36 MB,1433x2048)

This isn't something I recently read, but seeing as some people really enjoyed the premise of Isekai Yakkyou, I'd reccomend they try out Jin. It's probably even more to the liking of /qa/ than Yakkyou would be given that it's more a warp to the past instead of an isekai into a fantasy world. As well, instead of solving problems with magic the protagonist has only modern medical knowledge in his arsenal and must contend with the limitations of technology at the time. However one possible difference is with the times comes more themes of war and it's a bit more romanntic/dramatic than a typical modern isekai story.


Studying modern visual culture with my friends.


what's that like?


yeah, how's it feel having friends?

Kissu dot moe have you read Bibliomania?


File:shocked dumpire.png (123.67 KB,400x478)

If you are enjoying Yofukashi no Uta I recommend reading Jitsu wa Watashi wa, another manga about a dorky dumpire but with some other monster girls as an added bonus. And DON'T make the mistake of watching the anime, it's Tsukihime tier, may as well pretend it doesn't exist.

Yes. It's a short read. I hope the author/artist does more stuff like it. They are completely mysterious and I can't find information about them anywhere.


I think I must have read this awhile ago, but I don't remember anything about it. I'm going to keep reading anyways


On volume 6 of this so far, it's kinda rough here and there but I'm overall enjoying it.

I've been picking up Jahy-sama after a few years of not reading it and it's still cute and funny.

Read Medalist.


File:Filenames are for skinnyfa….jpg (233.42 KB,892x1280)

I read the entirety of Sentai Daishikkaku in a day then found out they're actually having a delay. It's crazy intense and has a lot of cool visual references to Berserk, BNHA, Battleship Yamato and probably a few I missed. The creator is the same guy who did Quintessential Quintuplets so it's a pretty radical genre shift but youd think he's done something like this before, maybe he has but it wasn't translated.


File:index.png (309.83 KB,836x1200)

Please read the dumbpire manga, it's very good.

File:Dekoboko-Majo-no-Oyako-Jij….jpg (67.25 KB,400x600)

I stated rereading Dekoboko Majo no Oyako Jijou, it's a gag manga about a witch and her adoptive daughter. I remember chuckling while reading this, but I couldn't remember the title when mangadex closed so I had stopped following until I saw it in my feed earlier today. The phoenix is still as funny as I remembered.

File:Parallel Paradise - c001-0….png (985.03 KB,1036x980)

Found out that the author of Elfen Lied wrote another masterpiece that's currently ongoing. It's an isekai into a world where men don't exist and all the women go into heat at the mere touch of a male. It's very philosophically stimulating.


This would be a good series if the guy knew how to draw. He's been drawing for what? Two decades? And he barely has improved.


It's charming in a way that it's sort of a preservation of that early 2000's style.


Elfen Lied's manga was somehow made more erotic by the low quality of the art


Yeah, but it doesn't work when the focus of the series is sex. Especially when the artist draws pussy juice as shampoo. It's gross.


creamy pussies


sandpapery dickies


File:Parallel Paradise ch. 42 B….png (Spoiler Image,2.82 MB,1440x2048)

If I were reading it for the art alone, it'd probably be a pretty meh eromanga. However, I don't know what happened in between Elfen Lied and this but Okamoto Lynn learned how to be an amazing writer (at least for ero). His set pieces and ero situations hit exactly the kind of sexual content I love and enjoy so much so that the art doesn't even really matter aside from being a nice supplement.


File:Goodnight Punpun Omnibus v….jpg (1.33 MB,2130x3056)

Been reading Oyasumi Punpun for the first time. Despite knowing how praised it is around imageboards I wasn't expecting it to be so human. Also I was saving a bunch of notable pages, but after a while I realized I was just saving nearly every page...

Great read so far.


I liked the early chapters but I ended up dropping Punpun at some point.


File:Goodnight Punpun Omnibus v….jpg (1.81 MB,2130x3056)

It takes "Slice of Life" to the extreme, where it really is a slice of someone's life with all the ugliness and suffering included. To that extent I think that it could very well turn off people that are more into entertainment for escapism, or those who may be turned off by Punpun as a person. However, I still think there's value even if you can't relate to Punpun entirely in seeing his struggle through life and the way the author forces you to attempt to see the world from his perspective and understand him.


Also I posted that image, but forgot to comment on how I liked that it's confronting somewhat the more /r9k/ outlook on life in a way we've had discussions on a bunch in /qa/ before.


I like her


I've been meaning to try, too, especially since it's made by the same guy that did the DDDD manga I dumped on /qa/ a while back. If it's anything like DDDD, then yes he does do 'human' very well. There's something about the characters that are so believable and it's truly a talent


File:C-1670987538715.png (5.48 MB,2130x3056)

Me too.


File:2023-03-12_00-39-07.png (170.05 KB,662x217)

Ponko scanlations are finally back (and apparently have been for 3 months now, but I didn't notice since I was only checking dynasty-scans for updates, whoops), but they're being done in ESLglish......
Why must this suffering continue...........


>This would be a good series if the guy knew how to draw. He's been drawing for what? Two decades? And he barely has improved.
For me the erotic power of the Elfen Lied manga was for some reason improved by the artist's lack of skill


I just realised that I already said that in this thread a few months ago.

File:Love-Hina-Omnibus-v01-(201….jpg (2.63 MB,2250x3375)

I use a cheap and kuso tablet too and it works fine for lower resolution scans, but trying to read something like this is on an 800x1280 display is hopeless.
Having a tablet with a better screen would be nice, but it's hard to justify spending several hundreds on something that will only be used as a manga reading device.


File:Goodnight Punpun Omnibus v….jpg (Spoiler Image,7.01 MB,4260x3056)

It's hard to put into words what I thought of Punpun while tired and a bit drunk. But anything that helps me to better evaluate myself is probably a great work.
