What do you think of Gantz?

Do you like it or not?

Do you enjoy the fucked up moments or do you find it boring?

Hell yeah I am. I'm a few chapters in. It's not long but I want to spread it out a bit.
It doesn't really seem to have much of a plot and it's kind of just a slice of life mango, but it's still pretty nice. I'm curious if the events are cannon. You would think if there was a human village/town on the island, the friends might have told Kaban about it.

The manga's version of Tsuchinoko is like a 180* on personality.

I started during the anime and finished a couple weeks ago. It's a pretty nice little manga. I feel like it's a bit underwhelming, but I think that's because unlike the anime it starts pretty good and stays there, whereas the anime starts out as a weird dumpster fire and becomes awesome.

As far as I know, the manga is a canon prequel to the anime.

I really liked Koala (CUTE!), but after I googled koala pap, it was always with some trepidation.

I love Lee Hyeon-sook's work. I wish I could read thr ending of 'Nobody Knows' sometime.

I'm also reading Park Eun Ah's 'Nocturne', but it's been silent for a while.

And then, out of the blue, the ending is finally available...

It's ambiguous but, if I understood it correctly, it was great.

Definitely one of my favorite works ever, just for the character of Eun-Joo.

Glad I lived up to see it.

This is manhua, and really good if you like wuxia and non-realistic martial arts. There's no gathering energy or turning super saiyan but it's not the same kind of martial arts as, say, sports manga where things are depicted, usually, as within the realms of what's actually humanly possible.

I remember following Ruler of the Land for a bit. It was your classic martial arts beat-em-up but it was pretty fun. It just got a bit repetitive by the time I dropped it. I especially liked the subversion of the trope of earning an enemy clan's respect where the only one whose respect was earned was the clan leader, while the rest either followed him because he was head, or rebelled. It formed the basis of a cool arc but the whole thing was getting stale by that point and it didn't really keep up the momentum.

Also a few years back I read that webcomic, Fairytale for the Demon Lord or something like that. It was weird as fuck but the ending was great, a great twist to tie all the loose ends together. There was a sequel but it took the nicely tied up original and tries to move the story forward so I dropped it. If someone has read it and thinks its worthwhile, I'd not be opposed to picking it up again.

From China I've not read a whole lot. I've been keeping an eye on Mr. Train though, it's only got a few chapters presently but a chapter of it when it updates makes a nice way to spend 5-10 minutes. I like the art direction, and the setting/story is fun, if a bit nonsensical, and by a bit I mean close to totally nonsensical.

I'm making this thread specifically to recommend a WN turned LN called 'Shinigami wo Tabeta Shoujo', but since making a thread dedicated to one series that consists of two volumes feels a bit excessive and I've been reading a bunch of them lately let's just have a catch-all thread.

Can't say I do, I'm not well versed in them. I have read Evil God Average after making the thread and though it seems to be well liked I found it rather boring.

Use this site to look up what's fully translated, maybe you'll find something for yourself:

For the time being I've had my fill of WNs and I'm back to reading 'normal' books (I'm midway through 'Starfish').

I was actually interested in reading this but hadn't yet invested the effort to find a download. Thanks for saving me the trouble.
>> No. 3031 [Edit]
Finding it wasn't particularly easy - and neither was even determining what's the status of the translation - so it's good to hear the download will be of use to someone.

Apparently the original translator was upset about something so he deleted the majority of the last chapter without leaving any note of that anywhere in the translation, making it look like the series ended differently than it did. The translations that are rehosted on numerous sites on the web are the same. Like I've mentioned before the download has the full chapter 34.

It's a pretty nice series, hope you'll enjoy it.

the majority of scangroups were active a decade or so ago.

these guys usually hosted their manga with XDCC bots over IRC, sometimes ddl on their sites. but this was all a long long time ago.

Today many of these sites and IRC channels have disappeared or people moved on. A lot of the scan work is being lost.

The modern way people read manga, I guess, is to read on web2.0 sites in browser. I'm just sad to see the traditional ways dying out, and content lost..

What do you think?

I'm currently reading their version of Kisses, Sighs, & Cherry Blossom Pink, and it has no memes, Americanisation, or similar bullshit. It even keeps the honorifics. Maybe their other translations are different, but this one has given me nothing to complain about.

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.

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.
