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:
-Koharu no Hibi
-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).

Oh yeah, it is a shounen but I accidentally put it under seinen because I grouped Inoue's works together.

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.
>> No. 577 [Edit]
So, I just caught up on this series after dropping it a little after the first few chapters were put out.

That fucking girl.

That about sums it up. That fucking girl.

I was starting to like her, too. Fuck.

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.

>Only Naoki Urasawa could make a global conspiracy thriller about a cartoon bat.

Murakami wrote a global conspiracy thriller about a sheep (A Wild Sheep Chase). Apparently chasing a sheep with a power to revolutionize the world all over Hokkaido is business as usual, though.

So a few days ago I was looking through some Hidamari Sketch merchandise (to be more precise I was downloading the 'new' character albums) and I found a visual fan book. There were some colored 4 koma at the back and I think my world has been turned upside down (ok, that was a lie, sorry).

I love monochromatic art. Fotos, drawings etc. - I prefer them to be black and white and every now and then I 'drain' the color from drawings I like. Colored manga is blasphemy, right?!
I obviously saw some fan colored manga and needless to say there are lots of bad attempts and a few not-bad ones. But even the latter didn't appeal to me as much as traditional, black and white manga. Back when I read some manga serialized in WSJ I always disliked the color pages and I thought they just plain looked bad.

But this <- doesn't look bad. And I can't say it looks good either, 'cause that would be a lie - it looks fantastic! After seeing quite a few failed attempts I was 100% positive that colored pages just can't surprass monochromatic beauty but I was just proven wrong.


So, what do you think about colored manga in general? For example, would you rather have your favorite series in full color (obviously we're talking about good coloring, not WSJ-level one)? And if it would take longer to release colored chapters of your favorite publishing series would you be willing to wait longer?
Or maybe it's just me? Does this page look good to you?

Many mangafags only do so because of adaptation decay.

Also, encouraging people to read more manga is hardly what I'd call "overzealous" but I'm sure you're referring more to elitist mangafans that go "all anime is shit, you newfags."

I generally prefer manga because it's easier to read just a little bit at a time.

How many times have you obsessively read chapter after chapter of something that you considered genius only to have it destroyed by a lazy adaptation.

I have heard the Gantz anime was terrible so I avoided it, but the first live-action movie they released was surprisingly good. It changed a few things and was not entirely necessary but it was by no means a bad movie.
