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 https://twitter.com/azuma_hideo/status/1186149786287632385. 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.

吾妻ひでお先生、本当にありがとうございました。

A story about a teenager and grandmother's house cat who turns into a nekomata. She then takes on the role as his older sister and their daily life continues with this new change.
The art starts out too detailed and looks quite ugly but improves later on, I think. There isn't much in terms of story until it approaches the end. For this reason I consider it more of a slice of life.
Something annoying about it is that Anzu and Gin barely get closer to each other at all because Gin keeps his guard up so much and has so little patience for her. Only until the ending does he finally let her in but it makes everything in between feel like it failed to be anything more than amusing slice of life banter instead of gradually working towards the goal of them becoming closer.
Despite it's flaws, I will likely treasure it as being a manga with a significant focus on a caring older sister, one of the few things that can heal my soul anymore but also something I feel there is a near criminal shortage of in Japanese media that I'm desperate for, and the slice of life that is likely to happen with a well-meaning but uneducated elder sister.

The art isn't that ugly, it feels more like a throwback than anything. Almost like someone imitating Azuma.
I have this half-read, but from what you're saying and the fact that there is an old lady character it will probably be quite the tearjerker near the end.
>Despite it's flaws, I will likely treasure it as being a manga with a significant focus on a caring older sister
There is nothing wrong with treasuring a flawed piece of art! If it has themes or something you can love about it then great. The more things you can enjoy and treasure the better.

Useless Ponko
This is about an outdated maid robot model living in a seaside town out in the country with a grumpy and stubborn old man and all the antics they get themselves into.
While it more or less has the usual trope of a strictly practical and traditional old man and an idealistic but naive young girl, I would say it's a little different. Ponko tends to get dragged around into situations a lot and is capable of a lot of different functions which make her popular in due time among the town. Yoshioka however, the old man, finds himself relying on her but never seeing her as much more than a friend, especially not since his granddaughter, Yuuna, stays over. Ponko seems to have more of a noticeable influence on many others instead.
It's an easygoing manga with a lot of different scenarios for it's chapters and I like it a lot. The length isn't too long or short for each chapter, the art is good, the jokes land (for me, at least) and I don't feel like it lets itself get distracted as much from the core concept as some other mangas do because most of the time, Yoshioka is involved in some way but there isn't much other than the small starting cast at the beginning to imply that it should only be about these two. But even when he isn't, the manga doesn't just change genre in favor of dramatic worldbuilding or drama in what feels like an attempt to keep the manga going, or the artist getting distracted by the appeal of doing other things with those same characters, or simple distraction on the part of the artist. While worldbuilding is present, I never feel like it breaks the atmosphere or goes against what I originally read the story for, especially since the concept of outdated robot models is presented early on to be expanded on later.
Though apparently there's some kind of concert arc which I haven't gotten to yet so I could be wrong on some things I said.
>> No. 3921 [Edit]
I'm following this series too, I would class this as an iyashikei. There are more plot development in the newer chapters which I don't see as a bad thing. Another thing that's interesting for me is that this is set in the near future so Yoshioka might be in his 40s/50s(?) in our time. The mangaka's representation of the future is also subtle which I find charming but this might be more salient because the manga is set in the countryside. The concept of being in a relatively remote and idyllic countryside plays a central theme in the manga.

Gakkou Gurashi recently ended. It was an nice ride. I normally don't like zombie stories, but this one captured something interesting about the scenario not focused on a lot by others, what makes life valuable enough to continue struggling to survive. You can sit in a room with nothing but a cd player to keep you occupied, and you'd be able to live for a while, but would it be worth it?

If you're living in this kind of world, you'd do everything to keep having fun like before. What's going around you wouldn't be what you want to focus on. Parts of it were messy or underwhelming, and the ending was a tad anti-climactic, but it was decent.

Ms. Corporate Slave Wants to be Healed by a Loli Spirit
Since it's October now how about a spookier manga? Loli Spirit is about an overworked wagie that doesn't look at all like Kobayashi who is told to leave her workplace by a ghost child and all of the cute antics that ensue from a ghost child trying to be scary to be helpful. Unfortunately, the ghost child does not succeed often but she still does her best to scare the wagie away for her own good!

The fluffy series you've all heard of. If you watched the anime, you know what it's about though the anime deviates in order a little bit as well as the ending. The manga, however, is still going and updates with some frequency (I think that's frequent, I'm not sure). It still features the things that people who started reading early read the manga for but has deviated over time deciding to explore the strange black mist that plagues Nakano or introducing other characters to keep things going. With that said, s2 is probably a never ever but you can always read this. and cry yourself to sleep knowing you'll never come home to a fluffy tail wife

This seems to be a common reaction to these sorts of things. Healing seems to upset certain personalities.
It kind of reminds me of how people can't read things like Aria or Lucky Star because the nostalgia makes them sad.

Touch the fluffy tail.
I have been enjoying this after giving it a chance, like all healing it is something to be savored instead of binged.
I really wish they would do first person pov chapters because seeing another man is throwing off my healing receptors.

I will never pay such ridiculous sums for a manga, I would preffer to get it in japanese and hope I will be able to read it someday. I still don't get why this it's happening now because it didn't happen in the past and it doesn't happen in most countries. Maybe there's a particularly high demand in the US and they didn't have too many copies to start with or something like that.

I understand wanting to collect manga, but books are a really awful thing to collect just because of how much space they take up. A lot of people I know just buy the Jap releases for the shelves and read the digital ones, if you really are into full bookshelves.
>Everyone is nostalgic for better times and the market is going to reflect that. It's only going to get worse since the Y2K aesthetic is starting to trend online
I think that's bizarre. I understand wanting to go back to the 2000s, but aside from certain artists the Y2K aesthetic is really a transitional period from the 90s into the 2010s. It's not like anime, either where 2000s anime are typically warm and colorful due to the transitional period going on in that medium as well. Key faces, man.

The resale market is currently in a very strange position. Japanese language manga is usually inexpensive and easy to find, but anthologies, artbooks, and doujinshi are much harder to track down. Last week, a number of older doujins from a relatively obscure circle were listed on a reseller website including two that I had wanted in my collection for years. Before I had a chance to put the second one in the cart after I bought the first one, it was already out of stock. I'm not sure if it was a scalper, but it struck me as odd that someone else was also interested in it.

I've noticed an uptick in people referencing 2000s culture as a whole online within the past year in the same vein that 1990s culture was being perceived as back in 2010-11. It's because people who were raised during that era are now in their twenties and thirties. In my case as a 21 year old, my interest in otaku culture began in 2006. Most of what I seek out to buy and download is mid-Heisei era because it's nostalgic to me despite having been a transitional period.

I Was Summoned By The Demon Lord, But I Can't Understand Her Language
This is a simple and easygoing fantasy romance about a guy and the demon lord who summoned him with not much of a story so far. There are not many chapters translated but what is there is really cute. It's a manga that helped me realize that loli truly is superior.

It's a case by case basis, JK is a happy medium but loli are by far the most vanilla choice.
