I was rather disappointed by Number Girl. The concept has potential, the character designs are cute, but while it does have some good jokes here and there, it mostly relies on very generic humor using the typical overused anime tropes ('LOL SHE IS INSECURE ABOUT HER SMALL BREASTS XDDD SO FUNNEH!')

I agree, that's part of why the anime is actually more fun than the manga. That scene where she tears apart her panties on the toilet for example - pretty hard to figure out what is evening happening in the manga.

I plan to one day, if I can ever get off my sorry ass and try to learn Japanese again. I don't want to deal with all the English localization business. I'm a bit anal about things like how Tetsuwan Atom is still called Astro Boy in the West and Jungle Emperor is called Kimba the White Lion, for example. It may not be that big of a deal, but obvious forms of localization like that really bother me because I feel like I'm not get the "pure" or "authentic" experience from the manga that Tezuka intended, you know? Plus, they localize character's names and jokes, which make it seem less Japanese. I mean, I'm sure it's good enough, but I want to wait until I can really appreciate his works in the language it was intended for.

Plus, I would love to be able to read The Complete Osamu Tezuka Works, but not everything he's done has been translated, so it only makes more sense (for me, anyway) that I should just wait until I gain some fluency.

Does anyone know somewhere that I could buy used manga in bulk? Like a place maybe where people auction off their personal collections?

You just described ebay

If you live in the USA, why not use sites like Craiglist? I doubt there is a dedicated site for what you're looking for?
>> No. 3113 [Edit]
What the above users said, and Yahoo auctions Japan if you're looking for stuff in Japanese. Although there will be the associated fees for using a proxy, etc.

You can get manga dirt cheap on ebay.

Sort of...

Appleseed is his best. It starts real well but ends super mediocre. I wish he'd write a manga that isn't so episodic, makes them feel real un-focused and a chore to get through with all the dialogue.

Does anyone here read Made In Abyss? I spent the past day or two reading through and getting caught up, and I've seriously been enjoying it.
>> No. 3091 [Edit]
I started reading it after I finished the anime and been wanting to post the releases here but since it's a little racy (grey area regarding the loli rule) I thought maybe it was better for the board if I didn't link to the translations. We can still discuss it though.

If you watched the anime, what did you think of the changes?
>> No. 3092 [Edit]
I actually read the manga first. I'm planning on going through the anime during my free time for the next week or two. What am I in for? A friend of mine said they actually handled it surprisingly well, even the rougher scenes that unfold as they reach the deeper levels, but I'm always a little skeptical of anime adaptations.
>> No. 3093 [Edit]
There are some changes here and there that you might unnecessary if you read the manga first, but I loved it. I think the anime is in most ways better than the manga:

Yeah, I read it two weeks ago when it was released. I was going to post about it, but I forgot.

Things are really getting pretty strange in that manga.
>> No. 1943 [Edit]
Just caught up to this, I seriously hope the manga actually has answers for the mysteries it's setting up. Really going to hate it if it's half-assed like Dragon Head. Anyhow, I believe the Kurusus are some sort of zombie mindhive leaders, due to the whole "Zombie Emperor" blurbs and the fact that they're for the most part ignored by normal zombiefags. You know it'd be really interesting if this movie ends up with an ending like the Okay book/shitty movie I am Legend. For those of you who haven't read it or seen the REAL intended ending and want to be spoiled the monsters are real human beans, we the last humans are the demons. Hell it would make a lot sense to due to how similar I am Hero sounds to I am Legend.
>> No. 3073 [Edit]
Haha, the ending was very similar to "I am Legend", but not in the way you were hoping.

So I was disappointed, like most of you I guess, given our own life choice (even at my age)...

But all said and done, I simply cannot get mad at him for giving up to Sue; I cannot feel anything negative in regard of Sue. Unrealistic? of course, to Hell and back; but it was the point all along, right? to find in fiction the kind of fulfilling outcome we positevily know that we'll never ever have...

So I thought: be it; let the manga man have his manga ending.

A fun experience all along, at any rate.

See you guys around.

I can't get angry at him either. The vast majority of us just give up and become normalfags.

I should have just stuck with my fond memories of the anime, the manga just drags so much near the end.

Tell me about your favorite manga, /tc/. It would be nice if you would explain why it's your favorite in a few sentences.

You can include multiple categories if you want to, for example 'favorite seinen', 'favorite ongoing series', 'favorite one shot compilation' but I'd like you to refrain from including favorites based on just one aspect of a series if possible ('favorite female lead', 'best art style', 'favorite plot twist').

In the dark side of manga Homunculus always have a place in my heart, its awesome. Followed by Nijigahara Holograph or Oyasumi Punpun, those are insane.
More recently I´m a hero i think is the best i read i years.

In the colorful side... FMA, Welcome to the nhk, Lupin III, Golgo 13, Saki

The characters and execution are just really good, even if it is just a battle shonen. Specifically this guy and his personality, he's a major part of what makes it so good to read. It's not the deepest or most flawless manga, but it probably has the most heart. You can feel that the writer and artist enjoyed making this story.
>> No. 3045 [Edit]
I had a very abusive non-father, that can pretty much sum up why I like a manga all about a great one so much.
I cried like an infant for three hours solid when I finished reading it.
Oyaji's real cool in that his actions speak for him. He's a near completely silent protagonist, yet he has so much influence and charisma in spite of it. The manga's plot unfolds in only 24 hours, and in this short time, Oyaji managed to have such a great deal of impact on his family in a very believable way.
There were these really heart wrenching panels where Oyaji would close his eyes and envision how his now young adult children looked when they were toddlers...
I'm going to read it again right now and have another good cry.
>> No. 3060 [Edit]
I really like Oshimi Shuzuo. He's definitely one of my favorite manga artists. I've read basically everything available in English.

Punpun started out fine but then it got really edgy and the protagonist became unlikeable. That's the point though I guess. I'm of the opinion that everything Asano Inio did is better than Punpun, though Punpun is still okay.
