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.

I'm loving this. It's so cute. I would help, OP, but I don't know any moonrunes. What I can offer is support and say that your grammar is fine and it reads smoothly.

So MangaStream dropped this too, how can a freaking Urasawa manga have so much trouble finding a translator? He just introduced the totally moe girl protagonist too.

>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?

It's a short story by the same mangaka that made Letter Bee. It's only natural it would look similar.

Do you actually read manga? Or do you usually prefer anime?

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."

Im annoyed that anime gets discussed more.
>> No. 441 [Edit]
I'd rather not see blatantly stupid people's comments on something I hold dear like what we have with anime, but I guess the problem is there's not much decent discussion either.
>> No. 442 [Edit]
I generally prefer manga because it's easier to read just a little bit at a time.

So we're almost finished vol 1 of A channel over at J-Yutanpo and are looking for a new project to work on. We've put up a poll of some titles we're interested in, so please check them out and let us know what you'd like to see.

I didn't mean to complain about their release speed. What I meant is that obth you and Musashi picked up A channel/Nichijou just a few weeks before anime adaptations have been announced.

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.

Okay, I just finished chapter 4 till 11 in one sitting.

I have to say that this was probably the most touching Manga I've ever read. I cried even a little on the last chapter. THAT never happened before while reading a Manga or Book.

Thank you everyone who translated this truly piece of art. Thank you!

Yeah, that ending... Kurosawa is pretty much the comedic version of Akira Kurosawa's film "Ikiru" in my opinion. In any case, I'm just glad to hear that you enjoyed it as much as I did since this is definitely my favourite Fukumoto manga. So many classic moments.

I remember I was actually a little upset to see people going "wtf is this shit" when only the 1st volume was scanlated in which Kurosawa just fucked around with his coworkers' lunchboxes. But it quickly picked up after that and most of the complainers seemed to shut up.

You know, I really like this so far.

It doesn't compare to the first part, but it's much better than I was expecting.
