Even though Zero may sometimes feel like kid-version of Akagi/Kaiji, it's still awesome because the usual Fukumoto snail-like pacing is surprisingly not there. I would assume the credit for that would go to the editors of Kodansha Weekly Shonen for trying to keep things fast-paced enough for younger readers to like it. I just hope to god Fukumoto listens to their advice and keeps making things just as fast-paced as the first part. Otherwise, it might end up going down the same path that the Kaiji manga is unfortunately on...

>Kaiji manga sucks compared to the anime

Well... Firstly, the anime is better I admit, but it's still pretty damn good if judged on its own merits. Secondly, One Outs is not a Fukumoto manga. But to answer your question, I suggest reading Legend of the Strongest Man Kurosawa, Buraiden Gai, Confession, and Seizon. The latter two are done in a non-fukumoto artstyle because it was drawn by Kawaguchi Kaiji, whom you may have heard from Zipang. If you like mahjong, go check out Ten, which is where Akagi made his first appearance (Akagi is a spinoff prequel to Ten). The ones I've mentioned so far are all completely scanlated so you don't have to worry about hiatus or scanlators going missing.

Now, as for currently ongoing manga, I think the only ones that are getting translated presently is Kaiji and Gambling Emperor Zero. Obviously, Kaiji part 3 would be a logical choice once you finish watching s2, but be aware that this part has a single game (a variant of mahjong) for all 13 volumes (it's also less interesting than parts 1 and 2 in my opinion). Gambling Emperor Zero, on the other hand, does a lot of stuff that Kaiji part 3 does not do. By that, I mean having numerous varied insane gambles/games and fast-pacing (though the first volume is setting up stuff so it is a tad slow). However, Zero, being a shonen manga obviously aimed for younger audiences, lacks any sort of more adult drama or philosophical statements on life (ex. Tonegawa's speech on the value of life) that tends to characterize pretty much every other Fukumoto manga. But as a whole, it still manages to be a fun action-shonen manga and I do suggest you give it a try.

The manga I've talked about are pretty much the only ones available to the English fandom but even if you do speak Japanese, I wouldn't really recommend any as there's not much more notable works, with the exception of Gin to Kin. Well, I hope that helps and here, have a link to where you can download Kurosawa:

I second Kurosawa. It made me break down, cry, and blush repeatedly. If you are in doubt of your humanity I suggest you watch it.

And the manga version of Kaiji wasn't that bad...

Hi guys. I'm the retard who started the Mirai Nikki OVA thread in /an/ and there's something I wanted to ask you about.

Do people honestly believe Mirai Nikki is good? Because I decided to browse some anime forums (which I never do, mind you, as most of them are shit) just to laugh at people's reaction to the trolltastic OVA (when they said they're gonna release an OVA I was actually expecting an OVA, not a PV). Most people were complaining about how 'a series as good as Mirai Nikki deserves better' and how 'it's going to be a huge hit when it get's turned into anime'.

I always sort of assumed we're reading this because of Yuno and because it's one of those 'so bad it's good' series. I enjoy it because it's one of the biggest trainwrecks I've seen in a long while and I can never tell whether the author takes the whole thing seriously or whether he was aiming at such an effect from the beggining. I've been following it for a long ass time so obviously I can't recall all cases of hilariously bad writing or plain QUALITY (how does he manage to constantly missdraw something the way he does is beyond me) but some were so bad that I remeber them even today. I'll try to post some ITT, beginning with this gem of a page. 'Something is wrong with the weight of these tomatoes' (they were poisoned. Brilliant.

>You mean people don't like this series? I enjoyed it... But then again, I kind of like the gimmicky seinen series.

>I like Mirai Nikki. I enjoy it for what it is (well, maybe not so much anymore, the ending is a bit of a let down). As I mentioned in the very beginning it's so bad it's good. It's a ridiculous train wreck and I enjoy it as such (just like I enjoyed, say, Code Geass).

Again, I liked it. The same way Plan 9 from Outer Space is one of my favorite movies on all time and the same way I'd love every second of Mushashi Gundoh if it would ever get completely subbed.


To be perfectly honest after thinking about it a little I concluded that it's a somewhat fitting ending considering the level of writing throughout the whole series. Also - like >>201 said, Wakusei/Hoshi no Samidare.


>It's actually a shonen, since it ran in Shonen Ace magazine

As another guy who's translated Mirai Nikki...

Yeah, OP, you got it pretty much spot on. Yes, Mirai Nikki has plot holes large enough to drive an eighteen-wheeler through. Yes, it should've ended about a dozen chapters before it did. Yes, Esuno has consistently shown he doesn't really know the first thing about putting together a coherent story. It's still entertaining, though I have to admit I stopped reading around when Minene's boyfriend died.

I assumed everyone read it for Yuno. Oh, and Minene. Can't forget tsundere terrorist Misato.

And Yukki growing a pair after god knows how many chapters, of course.

I enjoyed it for the first half or so. When [spoiler]cross world teleporting breaking down, fourth out of nowhere, stupid fucking last chapters[/spoilers] I stopped liking it.

I don't like your reasons for disliking (panels) it though, they seem pretty inane.

Is anyone else following this?

Sometimes it depresses me seeing just how much fun the characters are having, while I don't have any friends myself. Sometimes I think I'd like to have friends and hang out with them too, but I know that people aren't as kind and it won't turn out the same way as it does in the manga.

The first seciton of chapters with only Shinagawa and Adachi were really funny, and people say the enjoyment factor dropped after introducing the rest of the gang. It might've done so, but I still enjoy reading it immensely. Maybe me having some sort of delinquent complex/fetish contributes to this..

Got into the manga after picking it up in a seedy western comic store, enjoyed it, then couldn't find volume 2. Couldn't be bothered with looking up scans since I was already following five other scans at the time, and didn't pick up the anime. I really should again if I don't have anything to do again soon.

Yanderes are my fetish. Can you guys recommend me some manga with yanderes in them?

Some I can list off the top of my head:

-Oniichan control
-Mirai nikki
-Medaka box

I don't mind if the yandere is a significant character or just a pebble on the sidewalk character.

What do you consider entry-level manga?
3 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 519 [Edit]
Depends on what you understand by 'entry-level' I guess.

Seconding >>513. Also:

- shounen: FMA and all other non-Jump fighting manga (Pandora Hearts, Soul Eater etc.)
- shoujo: Ouran, anything CLAMP, Kimi ni Todoke, Skip Beat, Dengeki Daisy
- seinen: Vinland Saga (a must), Lone Wolf and Cub, maybe BLAME
- josei: Hachimitsu to Clover, Usagi Drop, 3gatsu no Lion, maaaybe Shigeshoushi

Not sure how to classify Claymore but it definitely counts, too.

... That is, if you ask what actually is entry-level for most people. If you are curious about what you should begin with the list might be different (although it's okay as it is).

Yeah, I hear you man. I hate reading incomplete series. I always try to wait until its all finished before I start reading it. Avoids late releases and drama and shit.
>> No. 569 [Edit]

Same here. The only series that I'm following is episodic stuff, like Yotsuba, various yonkoma and such. I have ruined some potentially great reads by reading them before they were completely scanlated in the past and I sort of learned from my mistakes. Nowadays, whenever I look for something to read I search for finished series only. It kind of sucks to see how everybody says only positive stuff about some series (well, I try not to follow them before I get the urge to read them; the only one I could name of top of my head is Otoyomegatari) and not being able to read them but in the end I know I'll be glad I didn't give in to the temptation.

Same goes for anime by the way. Until it's done and subbed I don't bother, because waiting a whole week for an episode sucks (and again, this doesn't apply to episodic series). I just wait a little more and watch it at my pace. Wish I learned to do so sooner, there were so many good series that I followed as they aired...

It got canned. The author basically admitted that it was the same thing as Nozoki Ana but in a highschool setting. Didn't become nearly as popular as he thought it would.

So I just finished my translation of Hiromi Takashima's Poncho, chapter 1. It's a cute slice of life 4koma about a guy named Hiroshi that just wants to spend quality time with his girlfriend. Unfortunately, she's always busy at work, and so when he arrives at her house he instead spends his time babysitting her 8 year old sister.

Fun times ensue. Here's Poncho chapter 1.
