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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
