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.
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.
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.
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.

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...
Do any of you post in the manga thread on smug/a/? I check it out every now and then.
would you sell the rest of your lifespan for 3 days with a shab?
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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
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.
Studying modern visual culture with my friends.
yeah, how's it feel having friends?

Kissu dot moe have you read Bibliomania?
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.>>94182
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.
Where are her shoulder boulders
it will literally be faster to learn how to read japanese than wait for the fuckups at cyan steam to translate it at this rate
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.
I liked the early chapters but I ended up dropping Punpun at some point.
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'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
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...........
>>97216>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.
it's a mark of consistency
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.
but why spanish....
