This thread is for discussion of the KSKM manga.
For those unaware, KSKM is a martial arts manga spanning 50 vols and a spin-off sequel called KS Monogatari. The art is superb with special attention being given to muscles and anatomy throughout the series while keep everything as realistic as possible (for the most part). There's some comedy, particularly in the early chapters, although it often relies on stock characters. But the real allure of this manga lies in how it does not rely on winning matches for story progression and character development. I consider that to be the greatest fault of most martial arts manga. In KSKM both the story and the characters grow without the "defeat X guy, now Y guy appears, defeat Y guy" storylines so often seen in these types of manga. That's not to say the manga is without flaws, the ending felt like the author was forced to drop the series and secondary characters are completely forgotten only for us to be "remembered" of their existence many arcs later, and not getting as much screen-time page-time as the others, this is very noticeable as the chapters progress and more characters get added. Also some of these secondary characters are actually more interesting than the MC.
The fights are good. The initial fights are nothing out of the ordinary, just formulaic, but it gets better.
The first chapters are about Kohinata learning Karate and meeting the other characters, they serve as an introductory arc altogether. These focus on comedy and have the most "cliché" linear "defeat X" out of all the arcs. I can recommend this manga to anybody who is looking for a martial marts manga.
The sequel tried to tie some loose ends, and to some extent it did so, but its about two almost unrelated guys, and not as interesting overall.

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?

>What do you do about manga preservation?
Nothing, other than not throwing them away.
>In what way do you store your manga?
On my bookshelf.
>Do you use these manga sleeves/bags? If so, where do you buy them?
No, but I do have a few historically important German books from before 1945 that I store in plastic bags that I bought from the local drug store, they cost me something like $1 for a pack of 20.
>If your manga have started yellowing have you tried those chemical yellow stain removal techniques?
No, I think the yellow color adds charm. I don't smoke, so it doesn't get too bad.

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.

Explain to me, how there's such a thing as "price distortion," if somebody, somewhere, is willing to pay that price?
>> No. 4139 [Edit]
NTA, but demand can be manufactured and supply artificially limited. Most people would rather be manipulated than live without what's considered a necessity or highly desirable.
>> No. 4140 [Edit]
If they're willing to be manipulated, have they not, intrinsically, accepted the price?
>> No. 4141 [Edit]
It's like accepting the price of mafia protection. You could say no, but then they'd break your legs. It's coercive.

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.

Berserk thread since the last one stayed afloat for almost 7 years. This is also a thread for the continuation project by Studio Gaga with story assistance from Kouji Mori after Miura's unexpected passing in 2021. Fantasia Elf Island Chapter ended recently and a new arc will begin in December.

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.
>> No. 4074 [Edit]
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.
