I'm reading the classic manga Buddha since I want to read more anyway. It is honestly so bizarre seeing stuff that supposedly happened with such a cartoonish artstyle, and I know it's already going to be heavily fictionalized just due to the nature of religion and historical figures but still.

I just finished the original devilman manga and it was a pretty wild ride. I didn't think it was as special as some make it out to be, but it wasn't bad either, very cheesy.
The art was probably the highlight for me, Go Nagai is very recognizable in his style and the faces he draws are very expressive. The paneling was also pretty damn good too, especially for a manga of its era.
I know why it is the way it is but my main problem with the story is the ending: I knew Ryo was Satan (and knew Satan was the main character through the sheer popularity of the manga) when he came back after seemingly dying but the sudden end was weird. He was in love with Akira? What? Then why fight him at the end and kill him? I could've swallowed that fine if the ending was them happy together in the post-Apocalypse.

Parasite Eve. I only bought it because I liked Parasite Eve 2 (PS1 game) when I was a kid, but I loved so much about this manga. The character designs, the mtDNA parasite concept that serves as the premise, the way it deals with the topic of organ donation, and how all the sub-plots fit together in the end.
It also got me to do some further reading about biology. I started out reading some articles related to mitochondria on Wikipedia, then i listened to the audiobook of Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene which is referenced several times in PE, and now I'm on to JF Gariepy's recently released The Revolutionary Phenotype.

Reading the Konjiki no Gash manga. After watching the anime adaptation in 2018 I got interested in the manga since the anime stops at some point and adds its own ending leaving a lot of the story unadapted. The anime seems to have followed it to a T so far (up to nearly chapter 100) with a few minor things left out or added. Probably a few pages at most and one encounter with an enemy that happened toward the beginning of the anime didn't happen in the manga, not really sure what I'm remembering there. Also some fight sequences are longer in the manga than they were adapted to be, but not all the time. It's very good and as before I appreciate even more what it has to offer, and also that the anime adaptation did a pretty good job.
>> No. 3822 [Edit]
Just starting reading this, it's definitely a product of it's time with all the tidbits about autism they put in there. Also why does everyone who write an autistic character have them like trains? Is it that common or something else?
Though I do like how the mother makes it a point that she WANTS Hikaru to socialize with normal children, here where I live it's very much the opposite.
It's nice to know even the author wishes the same for children with developmental issues.

A manga about Rakugo set in the Taisho era. Surprisingly the mangaka for this is Tansuke who was known for the character Takagi.
A couple of short animation based on the series was made and brought significant attention to the series. Only 2 poorly translated chapters so far however. I do hope this would get a proper release and perhaps an anime adaptation in the future. Loved Joshiraku and always had a fascination with the Taisho era so this was a pleasant surprise.

Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya

It's a canonical story that follows C.C. and her protegè during the Edo period.
The art style is good and the dialogue is memorable in some places.
But I'm like 3 volumes in and it feels like almost nothing has happened yet in the plot other than fighting against two JoJo-like villains, and the fight scenes are not drawn particularly well.

But if you're into it, it does have a lot of bathing scenes featuring the female cast, as well as C.C. frequently being covered in her own blood as she is impaled by sharp and pointy objects.

I have a habit of reading shonen weekly in boredom hours for a couple of years now and this is the first time I feel like talking about a new series. Last issue they had this bizarre title called Koukousei Family. It's a gag manga about a whole family attending highschool together. It's so different from the rest of the magazine it almost looks like an accident it being there. The art style feels like the author pitched his idea without ever even opening a shonen magazine before... and they liked it, next thing you know it's on the very cover. I really hope this one gets high ratings and keep going for a while, I know it makes no sense complaining how samey all shonen weeky titles are but damn, this one really stands out.
Just did some research and the author have in fact published a previous title before called Isobe Monogatari, I'll have to check that one out too, the premisse is quite amusing.

I've been reading Evil Dragon Friend. Mumu is really cute and funny and I like her a lot. I would like if it updated more frequently though, it makes me really happy to read.
I know the feeling. I avoided ntr when it was popular like the plague and I was mostly good at it but then I had a friend who kept talking to me about it even though I've always made it clear I can't stand that shit. Ever since I've been a more cynical and unhappy person as a result. It didn't help that I've steadily gotten more and more blackpilled over my life, I didn't need more.

>it changes you
This right here is why I try to keep my porn consumption to a minimum, be it 2D or 3D. I've never been into NTR, but it still became pretty clear to me that sexual stimulation is possibly the most powerful key to changing your psyche, and by reading/watching porn you hand over that key to the porn producers. When media outlets like CNN started promoting cuckoldry as "the thinking man's fetish" and so on, that was what convinced me to delete all my porn folders.

My goal was just to get away from porn, not to completely stop masturbating.
I made it a rule for myself that I'll only fap to my own fantasies and memories, not to porn videos.

As I said, deleting your porn collection is a good start. Next, I blocked all porn sites I know in my router and resolved to stay away from porn boards on the chans I visit.

Staying away completely is of course hard because it's so ubiquitous, but I've definitely managed to reduce my porn consumption a great deal.

And just to stay on topic, picrelated is from what I'm currently reading: Asper Girlfriend, which is about a guy who draws porn doujinshi for a living.

the art is good.

I like the protagonist, as she is a quite agreeable woman.

The story's theme of forced pregnancy would probably resonate more deeply with a female reader than with me.

It's a nice horror story, albeit quite formulaic, and so far (I'm at the 2nd volume) it has been fairly predictable.
It is set in your usual quaint isolated Japanese village. As always in these stories, the locals are friendly but have some strange customs that seem harmless at first but turn out to be quite horrifying.

The calm but spooky atmosphere reminds me of the Fatal Frame games. Come to think of it, listening to the Fatal Frame soundtrack might go well with this manga. So far I've been listening to this while reading:

I just finished Blue Mother.
I enjoyed reading it, even though the finale is a giant clusterfuck that leaves many things unresolved.

I looked up the author because the art style as well as the treatment of weird sexual fetishes seemed familiar, and sure enough, it's from the same author as Pupa.

It's relatable to some NEETs. Some people are able to laugh at themselves, and the overall tone of the manga is more sympathetic than mean-spirited, even though it's ultimately disapproving of the NEET lifestyle.

What a great one-shot this is. Came out on Yuri Hime 4 of this year. It's basically a failed isekai architect that goes around meeting people that are about to kill themselves to try and make them sign a contract to be reincarnated in one of his shitty worlds. I feel there's potential here for a great series. I hope they pick it up.
