Anyone know what chapter exactly there is the hasshaku sama scene? When kii chan dresses as hasshakusama and scares tomoko, when they are on summer break or something. I want it for reference to draw.

I'm reading the classic manga Buddha since I want to read more anyway. It is honestly so bizarre seeing stuff that supposedly happened with such a cartoonish artstyle, and I know it's already going to be heavily fictionalized just due to the nature of religion and historical figures but still.

Finished reading what English translations were available for Yougen no Chi.
It's got that early scanlation scene scuff, so it was a bit difficult to understand at some points. Especially when different groups decided to change the name of some terminology or how a name is written.
It doesn't help the manga itself straight up just redacted a plot point because the mangaka didn't like it as per author notes, so it's just ignored entirely later on. Unless that's just translation scuff again. Very hard to tell.
The translation group that was currently working on it never finished the rest of the fourth volume, and the series went on hiatus after the release of it anyway. It's mildly infuriating...
I'm going to track down the raws to read the rest myself, even if my own Japanese skills aren't the best.
At the very least, the art is great. I love the rough style of late 90s-very early 2000s manga, and the colored pages like pic rel give it a dreamy feeling.
It reminds me of those AI programs that color in pictures for you, funnily enough.

I don't know why it took me so long to get into Rozen Maiden despite seeing it everywhere for years. I had very different interpretations of characters because of it, so it was interesting finally seeing how they actually act.
Right now I'm still reading II, on volume 2. The ending for the first series was the most blatantly obvious "publisher cutting a series early" incident that I've ever witnessed.

What do you do about manga preservation? In what way do you store your manga? Do you use these manga sleeves/bags? If so, where do you buy them? If your manga have started yellowing have you tried those chemical yellow stain removal techniques?

I am reading this manga called "Itai Oneesan wa Suki desu ka?" about an office lady that's a social outcast. It's a comedy where she has very bad social skills and awkward, I like it. What are other good manga about social outcasts?

Thanks for recommending this one, what a beautiful title, it resonates with me a lot. For example this page right here. The feeling of satisfaction and lassitude after cleaning your living space. The author is very good at capturing little moments like this, quite something.

Its good. I also like that the mc is someone who is like that because they actively fucked things up. A lot of the non Fukumoto title's about reject are people who never stood a chance.

It also interesting that she isn't outright rejected by her old family and friends. Her ex-husband and daughter still engage with her in a positive way while implicitly acknowledging things can never go back to the way they were.

Finally read Jobless Siblings and outside of a few side characters which are a bit too one note it really is excellent. I enjoy the contrast between the brother and sister where the brother is almost NEET as a life choice whereas the sister seems to legitimately have severe social anxiety.

I've recently read Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai, and while Yugami is not the typical kind of person you see in these types of manga, I feel like it still qualifies. It's about a female transfer student who sits next to the titular no-friend-haver in class and starts to see why upon interacting with him for more than a few sentences. The manga is hilarious and refreshing, almost entirely due to Yugami being a conscious egoist and causing funny situations with his refusal to consider anything other than self-satisfaction, I really like it and highly recommend it.

Reading your post it seems they never fixed anything that was wrong with the manga. It's terrible how the main protagonist is barely used or explored. It's funny, I picked up this title because of the gorgeous fanart there's out there of the main character. I thought I would be seeing Enma visiting all sorts of oddities in hell and whatnot but it really wasn't the case at all. It's been a while since I read it but I distinctly remember having quite enough by vol4 but insisted anyway just because. I like the idea for Enma and I like her character design but the rest barely makes it worth it.

Ichigo Mashimaro follows the daily lives of Itou sisters Nobue and Chika and their friends, Miu, Matsuri and Ana. The stories are mostly self-contained and have a SOL bent to them, but with a rather chaotic twist in the shape of 12 years old Miu. She must be the most explosive comedy release character I've ever seen in a Slice of Life, feel good manga like this. You know the type from many other titles, the very active child that pushes the other characters to do things or force them into situations they would never get by themselves. Well, Miu is that element but she is… special. Judging by the things I've read about this work, she's a polarizing character, too. Half the readers seem to love her, the other half hates her. The reason for this, I'm assuming, is because she doesn't allow Ichigo Mashimaro to be a cozy, feel good manga all the way through. She's always scheming something and even when it's a small thing, it turns out to be bigger than expected.

But why would so many people like this to be a pure feel good SOL manga? To get why, you have to look at the art. Ichigo is just gorgeous to look at. Barasui has a very soothing, "round and cute" style. He's able to draw very delicate lines that capture a lot with very little. His sense of fashion is varied and fun to look out for and he is pretty much one of the best artists I've seen when it comes to capturing character's facial expressions and body language, especially from children. He's able to add a lot of subtlety to the way his characters exist, particularly with the way he draws hands and feet, and I have to mention again, he loves to draw clothing and that adds a lot to his panels. So when you have a very strong and chaotic comedic element that disrupts things, yeah, some people might have a problem with that.

It seems even Barasui himself sees the work as an odd mix of over the top comedy and Slice of Life. There are many stories where he compares the friendship between Miu and Chika (chaotic, comedic) and Matsuri and Ana (endearing, soothing). In fact he seems to love that sort of contrast and applies them a lot in several ways during all sorts of situations. Before we go into those however, it's better if I introduce all the characters first.

Miu is 12 and I'm not sure if she�

There's a fair amount of manga about cats out there and in 2020 an artist going by the handle Kyuryu Z on Twitter began publishing his own observations and interactions with his pet cat named Kyuruga (a pun on the fact his sister's mobile phone tried to read the cat like a QR Code). Yoru wa Neko to Issho have since amassed over 700k followers on Twitter. Kadokawa picked it up for publication (the third volume came out in April 2022) and an anime adaptation was announced as well for the season of Summer 2022.

Unlike something like Ojisama to Neko that focus on the emotional attachment between pet and owner or Chi's Sweet Home that uses anthropomorphic cats for comedy, this title is centered around careful observation of cat behavior. If you ever owned a cat, most pages here will depict things very familiar to you. The fascination cats have for boxes, how they love to get in the way when you're staring at your screen monitor, pushing things off tables and so on. The author is very careful in his observations and the interest and comedy contained here flow in a very natural, peaceful, non-scripted manner. The author is obviously not forcing the jokes to happen and any funny moment comes from pure cat observation. It's pretty much a diary relating funny and amusing things cats do and how it can brighten someone's day. Kyuruga the cat is the main and only star here, at least for now. The other two characters, Fuuta and his sister are just there to observe and play with the pet and the rest of their lives are not explored in any capacity. It's all about the pet cat.

It's a SOL for sure and the art is rather unique. Doesn't seem like Kyuryu Z had any pretentions with his manga, it just grew organically and the art shows his concern to depict cat behavior and movement in an accurate manner but also as fast as possible. I'm really curious how the anime adaptation is going to look like.

I highly recommend you check it out if you enjoy cats (it will be an endless source of 'my cat does that too!' moments) and also because you can actually read all this interesting stuff for free! The author keeps a blog with all the stories archived. I spent a lazy afternoon going through every story and it was an afternoon decently spent.

Azuma Hideo passed away on 13 October 2019, at 69. The family kept the news from fans until today, when they released a note on Azuma's official Twitter account I don't know what else to do to pay respects to my favorite manga artist other than posting a thread here so people remember him/look him up, at least for a little while. I never felt so close to someone through an work of art as did with Mr. Azuma's manga. He was an imaginative, funny and talented artist and his stuff always managed to make me cry, laugh and be weirded out in the best way possible. I'll miss him. For the past few years I had been following him on Twitter and it was a joy to go to that website and find out he had uploaded a sketch, drawing or anything else he wanted to talk/post about. I was cogitating on breaking the rules and posting a 3D picture of him (giving the importance of Mr. Azuma, I'm sure the admin would understand) however I realized the artist would prefer to see himself in his manga form, doing what he loved to do. Pushing melancholy away by imagining funny things and cute girls, while enjoying a cigarette. Uploaded is a page from うつうつひでお日記.

A short and sweet story about a droid who finds an abandoned child and takes him in to be his mother. It's a very easygoing manga, there is very little in the way of consistent significant danger or conflict and what is there is mostly to bring out certain parts of their personality. Otherwise the rest is occasionally silly parent-child antics between the two.
There is little to say, and thankfully, little to spoil. I liked this one a lot. It was a shame it was so short but at this point, if I have to choose just one, I prefer to see a series end early instead of continue on too long only to lose it's focus. It was nice to read a manga that focuses on a mother taking care of her kid. I find a lot more manga about fatherhood than I do about motherhood so it was nice to find something I had been looking for for a while now.
