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?

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.

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!')

>>2365
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.

Anyone else reading Prison School? Its like the mangaka decided to write something completely ridiculous just to spite people for getting his previous work and magnum opus cancelled, only to inadvertently make something hilariousky successful. Some of the scenes in the manga is almost hentai.

Heh, funny sotry. Went to mangatraders to download the first vol and upon trying to save it I found out that I already have it. Went to check my manga list and sure enough, it's there in the 'plan to read' category. I guess I found it while looking up some tags on mangaupdates (lots of them ring a bell but I bet it was either All Girls School Becomes Integrated or Borderline H because I've read quite a lot of those), downloaded it, never read it and completely forgot about it.

I wouldn't want to be 'that guy' but I can't say I share all the enthusiasm towards this series. But I have only read the first vol so far, maybe it gets better later.

It's understandable. Don't worry about it since everybody has different tastes and likes. Sorry for hyping it up a bit. I guess that I made it seem like something better than it really was with how much praise I've been giving it since it I ended up really enjoying it.
>> No. 1393 [Edit]
>>1383

Well, it's not bad, it's just that it's not very interesting to me, either. I just flipped through it, there were some 'heh, that's funny' moments here and there but that's about it. Read the first 4 vols and I think that's enough for me.

Nisekoi is horrible. It's so cliche and trope-filled that it makes you want to puke. Yet, yet it's so good. Not the story, but the girls. This may not be /an/, but holy mother the anime does it well.

So I just marathoned a good chunk of Cromartie High's anime and manga, and I must say the anime is much more interesting. The manga just loses steam after Mechazawa and Kamiyama begin fighting crime for a while, whilst preparing for the baseball league. Is this the case of too much of a good thing, or were the jokes really that flat as the manga progressed from there? Also don't misunderstand me, I never read Cromartie for the plot, just the silly gags and jokes, which have been so flat after the Baseball League and Hero Kamiyama arcs.

Anyone here read Ryuushika? It's a lot like Yotsuba in many ways, it's pretty good.

Anyway, no one has been scanlating it for about a year now, but Roselia Scans picked it up.

>> No. 2143 [Edit]
I read it. I think that I was going to recommend it with the ton of weird manga that I've been reading for a while, but I'm not sure if I ended up doing so.

I still remember the one chapter involving Ryuushika and the mirror where it got her to question her 'self'.

"Gokigenyou."

"Gokigenyou."

The clear morning greeting travels through the serene, blue sky.

Today, once again, the maidens that gather in the Virgin Mary's garden smile purely to one another as they pass under the tall gateway.

Wrapping their innocent bodies and souls is a deep-coloured school uniform.

Walking slowly so as to not disturb the pleats in their skirts, so as to not toss their white sailor scarves into disarray... such is the standard of modesty here. Running here because one is in danger of missing class, for instance, is too undignified a sight for students to wish upon themselves.

The point is referential humor. Anime like that try to get a rise out of people by referencing or commenting on other anime the viewer may be familiar with. It's kind of like a parody but without anything clever to it.

Do you have any characters you associate with certain voice and can't stop reading his/her lines in said voice no matter how hard you try?

Pic related, it's Sei from Love So Life and as far as I'm concerned his voice sounds exactly like Hamada Kenji's.

Started reading Asmov's lines in Utsumi Kenji's voice without realizing it myself and now I can't really stop.
>> No. 2040 [Edit]
Funnily enough, no. I read it all entirely in my own voice. However I do associate certain manga with certain songs. It jsut seems to be the song thats stuck in my head at the time.

E.g with Berserk its Marisa from touhou's theme 'Casket of star'. With Terraformars its 'imma be' by the black eyed peas.
