Anyone here into classic shoujo, like Year 24 group stuff?
Personally it's an obsession.

Onii-sama e is one of my favourite mangas. Definitely the best "short story" I know.
>> No. 2985 [Edit]
I've read the manga a while ago to see how it compares to the anime because I heard there were a bunch of differences between the two versions but unfortunately the manga didn't do it for me. There are a bunch of other Dezaki shows I really enjoy so it might've been his influence I guess.

As for old shoujo my experience with Onii-sama e pretty much sums up my entire experience Year 24 and old shoujo - I wanted to like it more than I actually do, and the part I enjoy the most is the artstyle.

Can we have a Berserk thread? I just started reading it despite hearing about it so much. I have to say, this is the only manga that made me speed through it because it was so damn interesting. I first thought it would resemble HnK because of some faint similarities but it turned into something I never expected. I feel so damn bad for Casca.

Well considering I'm literally obsessed with Griffith and Guts's relationship I wanted to initiate a discussion for it. I'm pretty sure Guts is straight, but I can't get over the feelings for Guts Griffith was implied to have. Anyway, I don't really trust my own judgement as I read homoerotic subtext into everything. So I was wondering what people generally interpret their relationship as.
>> No. 2976 [Edit]
Guts thought they were comrades.
Griffith thought they were kindred spirits.

Digital Manga Publishing and their new ecchi imprint, Pecchi's Kickstarter to fund a release of Kodomo No Jikan has announced that it has worked with original manga-ka, Kaworu Watashiya, to offer 3 more exclusive shikishis —one of Rin, of Mimi, and of Kuro.

The ‘From Watashiya’ tier level includes all the print volumes of Kodomo no Jikan, a 11” x 17” poster, a double-sided clear file, a tote bag, a set of three 2” rubber straps featuring the characters of Kodomo no Jikan, and an exclusive hand-drawn colored illustration from Kaworu Watashiya herself. There are three variations of the tier levels dedicated to each character. The tier level is priced at $1750.

A really good manga from the author of Blame!. I really enjoy the arms race between the humans vs gauna. The combat is great. But what I like even more than the action is the slice of life bits. its funny, it takes a sci-fi action manga to create good SoL

>I own the first 10 volumes of the manga. I love Nihei.

I think nihei is my favourite manga artist. Ive got the first 9 volumes of Sidonia, which is fantastic, all of Biomega which I think is better, and i recently got NOiSE of Amazon. I'll read NOiSE after I finish the scans of Blame!

All the architecture is breath taking in its size and scope. The world crafted by Nihei is so comforting to escape into, in a /cyb/ fetish way. I also love the way he blurs the line between organic and machine matter, if he demonstrates any line at all.

What do you guys think of the Sidonia anime? Its nice to watch but I don't appreciate the changes made, its not as weird.

To celebrate complete scanlation of Kaiji pt III let's have a KFMT general. Akagi, Zero, Kaiji, Kurosawa - everything FKMT goes here. Please remember to use spoilers when needed, even if you refer to something you might believe to be common knowledge (like Ten's ending etc.).

Hox finished scanlating Zero pt II, I read it yesterday. It was terrible.

It's actually impressively bad. It's so distinctlively ridiculous that at some point I started to wonder whether it's not a stealth parody. It's either that or dementia is really getting to FKMT and he doesn't even realize how ridiculous his manga are getting by now. He's been pushing it bit by bit for a longer while now hence my theory. Maybe he's simply trying to see how far he can go before someone will genuinely call him out on it.

But in all honesty I really don't think that's the case, it's just that I did toy with that thought for a couple of minutes towards the end. It's weird, really, he spent a couple of years drawing that and it's so bad, it's kinda mysetrious in it's own way. He should really give up on his detective stories and focus on gambling. Then again his editor should've simply told him 'no, stop, this is stupid' at some point. Oh well.

I can't stand translations like these. Somehow it manages to follow proper English structure but barely makes sense, and I imagine it must be an artifact from a literal translation from Japanese to English. I think one important factor in translation is to strike a balance between being literal and making the sentance intelligible in English.

Taken out of context it seems like Smith is bashing the "neo-otaku" for liking "prettified transliteration", and I was going to criticize him it. In short: It's easy to fear that you don't get the "right" translation and that you would therefore rather sacrifice smoothness for closeness in the dialogue. Thus he can't assume that people will like his translations, especially not the otaku (they shouldn't bitch about it though), also, people should have the right to choose.
It was not until I read the article and saw that it was about publishing that he made sense:
>The hard-core otaku have been, to an extent, hoist by their own petard. The manga market has expanded explosively. This has meant that many new readers have entered the market, readers who aren’t otaku, just…readers. They aren’t fanatics, they don’t haunt the forums and message boards, and they are now the bulk of the market.
The two most important things for at translation is considering the reader and staying true to the original text. If the reader is one, translate it one way, if the reader is another, translate it another way as long as the translation stays true. If you want to translate manga or anime for the general public, it should be done with them in mind.

The translations done by ShoujoSense reade like a garden path sentence. It almost makes sense. It has all the right words and components arranged in a logical order. But it says nothing of any actual meaning. It's like a very smart teenager with no real experience of English syntax wrote something based on a bunch of google searches.

Fuck having no batch downloads. I don't want to download ten dozen individual chapters.

Also, fuck people who rail on others for using online readers. Not everyone cares about quality. Its much more convenient than downloading ten dozen individual chapters. Besides, I can't tell the difference on my small CRT monitor anyway,

is there a good place to find batch torrents/downloads?

I'm sure you wont believe this but I have been reading manga for many years but I've never downloaded scans before. I've been trying to read Billy Bat and some chapters were hard to find but I eventually found it all on this site called Manga Traders.

Koe no Katachi ended recently, and I wanted to know if any of you guys read it or liked it, and what you guys thought about the ending. It's was quite a nice manga in my opinion, so I recommend it in case you haven't read it yet and have been looking to read something.

>Cat Street
You read that too? Aww man I love it enough to write "aww". I still feel sad that I'll never get to experience hardships with good friends. If I could just go to that school, I've been having that wish for a long time now. Cat Street and Love Hina sparked my first interest in living together with people who could just take it easy together. But I guess it wouldn't be possible.

I didn't want to post because I don't really want to talk about it that much. It tried to make a happy end, but it felt unnatural as if everyone had to somehow "win". The guy judging the movie was way too harsh (again unnatural) and kind of antagonistic even though there had been no build up for it. If you're going to make him a dick at least give him some personal reason for it or something so you don't create a tool just to force a point.

The video arc as a whole was a mess, and the characters borderline crazy. That's how I recall it.
>> No. 2324 [Edit]

>I didn't want to post because I don't really want to talk about it that much.

In a way I understand what you mean since I didn't really have much to comment on either. I just wanted to say I enjoyed it.

>It tried to make a happy end, but it felt unnatural as if everyone had to somehow "win".

Yeah, that was a bit forced. And rushed, there were still so many things to resolve. Absolutely nothing regarding Ueno reached anything that resembled a conclusion for example. The same goes for most characters really.

>The guy judging the movie was way too harsh (again unnatural) and kind of antagonistic even though there had been no build up for it. If you're going to make him a dick at least give him some personal reason for it or something so you don't create a tool just to force a point.

I think that was done for comedy effect. It felt like a parody and I wouldn't even be surprised if the critic was based on a real person.

I forgot to check up on it in a while so I finished it now. Overall I enjoyed the depressed and melodramatic teen-drama it had going for it and the characters were reasonably interesting. I agree with what others are saying about the ending, it doesn't live up to the rest of the series and while I understand the desire for a happy ending, it wasn't particularly satisfying.

I heard that it's getting an animated film. I'll probably watch it depending on what it covers.
>> No. 2402 [Edit]
I read it and I thought it was really good up until the end. The ending was to inconclusive for me. otherwise its really good.

How suitable do you think Yotsuba&! is for normal people? (I intentionally didn't say 'normalfags' as I feel it's an entirely different breed.) For example, if you showed it to her, what do you think your mother's reaction would be?

I kinda want to buy the first two volumes as a present for someone and that's why I'm asking this question. I always thought that - provided the person in question is somewhat open minded and wouldn't dismiss it only because it's a 'stupid comic' - it would be a good read for just about everyone. But after rereading it I'm not so sure anymore and it's hard to put a finger on the reason. Would a normal person understand and appreciate it's charm?

On a sidenote I managed to forget how great this series is. After not having read it for a while I began to think that while it's the best cute series in the slice of life genre it's not as good as some other series with more serious approach. Well, I've been wrong. I feel like this is the best manga out there again.

why does having social or political commentary make something better?
>> No. 435 [Edit]
This is exactly the sort of confusion I wanted to avoid and even wrote:

>in terms of subject matter, NOT quality in case anyone gets offended

But I apologize, as I should've been even more specific. I meant that having social and political commentary makes the subject matter more mature (god, I feel like such a "i only play mature games for mature gamers such as myself"-fag as I type this).

I am making no judgment on how "good" something is. Both are perfectly fine and it's all a matter of tastes.

I think Azuma works are great gateways into moe.

That said, I have actually lent out copies of Yotsuba&! and Chi's Sweet Home to my parents, and they enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved at the same time that I wouldn't be judged again but I was wrong.
