I am re-reading Azumanga Daioh for the dozenth (or so) time.
It still cracks me up everytime, it's so darn cute & funny.

Finished Azumanga Daioh today (read it a bit slower than usual).
Though it's still sad at the end, I was not as choked up about it as I once was.
Sometimes when I even thought about the ending to the anime or manga I got really really sad, and started to cry.

Maybe it's cause I never wanted such a fun show/manga to end.

Not sure how I will react to the ending to Yotsuba, whenever that happens.

BTW any word on when the next volume of Yotsuba comes out in the US?

I'm currently reading Omamori Himari on volume 4. Do like how so far Yuuto has willing kissed Himari. In harems you normally see the guy try to stay away from any romantic encounter.

Finished up to the latest release of Omamori Himari Volume 6. The action has picked up quite a bit in the later chapters and the fan service has really gone up with volume 6 even showing some nudity.

Though a line from Himari at the end of Vol. 6 has me kind of wondering how it will end.

Click to reveal..
Himari mentions that she hopes Yuuto, can become a Demon Slayer before she uses up her magic and dies.


Am interested if that is just to get the reader to want Yuuto to keep advancing or if it is a foreshadowing of what will happen in the final volume.

Read through Highschool Of The Dead Volume 6 today. What an ending, I would say that is the best ending since Act 1. And I think does a much better job of showing the trouble they are facing with this "Them" take over that they have kind of lost since leaving the school.

Really looking forward to Volume 7 this summer and hopefully HOTD starts back up on the Japan front as they have stopped since Volume 7 released there last year.

Right there with you Kiku. Though I doubt we will see that anytime soon as the manga isn't that far ahead of where the anime stopped in season 1 as it ended with volume 4. That only gives them volumes 5-7 to work with.

It's called an OVA. You're not going to see anymore High School of the Dead anime. They do this for a reason, to get people to buy the manga. Yeah, it's not to screw people over on a plot. Anime is made to help sell manga, that was the purpose of it.

Are you sure the anime stopped at volume 4? I have the color edition of the manga, which contains the first four volumes and volume 4 ended where episode 10 was at in the anime.

I assumed that the anime covered a part or all of volume 5.

Just pulled out HOTD Volume 4 and 5.

Volume 4 ends with Act 17 The Sword And The Dead
Which tells of when Seako tells Takeshi she was a "monster" before They appeared. Which the anime places out of place. I can go into more about this if you would like, but it is spoilers to both the Anime and Manga. I would like to stay away from that.

Volume 5 starts with Act 18 Legend Of The Dead
Which is them meeting the people in the Mall, which the anime ends with them reaching it.

Edit: I will discuss a spoiler in it.
Click to reveal..
Volume 5 covers all their mall time and ends with them getting ready to leave, so no way is it in the anime. Volume 6 covers them leaving and deals with some side characters mainly that they meet at the mall.

I see! The anime rearranges scenes and adds some addition content (fluff) for the end.

Anime doesn't add anything. It just changes when Seako and Takeshi go on their own. The OVA is not in the mange though, in less it is a bonus in Volume 7. I wished the anime would have used Rei's cosplay bonus.

I'm not ready to count HOTD out yet for another season, considering how wildy popular it was; and for good reason. I'm still using all my willpower to stave off getting that naughty naughty graphic novel omnibus 1-4.

Now reading Yotsuba, just cause it's even more funny & cute than Azumanga Daioh was (IMO).

Still kinda irritated that Mr. Azuma won't let anybody even try to do a Yotsuba anime. Apparently he said nobody would "get it" due to the rather long parts of just staring at the sky, or other non-activities.

I mean just look at Lucky Star, the whole first episode is pretty much nothing but them talking about how to eat a chocolate coronet.
That show was popular, and it has very liitle action.

Finished Yotsuba, now I guess I will just wait like the rest of us for volume 11. Which comes out in September (so almost a year apart from the last volume).

Seriously this is why so many people do the whole illegal viewing thing.

I just got done reading an excellent 2-volume manga by Jiro Taniguchi called A Distant Neighborhood. It's about a 48-year-old business man on a business trip who, after getting drunk one night, gets on the wrong train the next day and ends up going to the town he grew up in. With some time to kill before the train back he goes to look at the place he grew up, then goes to his mother's grave. Suddenly he is transported back in time to his 14-year-old self, several months before his father abandoned his family and disappeared. Although now a 14-year-old student, he retains his memories and tries to find out why his father left and whether there is a way to prevent it.

Taniguchi is one of my favorite artists and here he shows he is also a very good writer. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something more mature and thought-provoking in manga.

Sounds like an interesting read. Since RightStuf is having a YenPress sale. I would highly recommend using it to pick up Until Death Do Us Part.

It has a nice story about a little girl who can predict things. Who finds herself in some sticky places because of that and the main male character becomes like her bodyguard.

I just finished book one of House of Five Leaves and I thought it was pretty good. Does anybody have any suggestions on a manga I should read? As of right now I'm reading Black Bird, Black Butler, High School of the Dead, Rosario Vampire and Ouran High School Host Club. I'm open to pretty much anything so drop me a line and give me some ideas. Thanks

Just got done reading Highschool Of The Dead Volume 7.

We get some nice reactions to the end of Volume 6, which I like a lot. As the ending of Volume 6 to me really set what was happening to them not seen since Volume 1 when everything started. We get some nice progress to the story and from the looks of it I can easily see this series ending with Volume 8 when/if it finally comes out in Japan.

Also very excited about something that happens, but it is a big spoiler so I will talk about it below

Click to reveal..
In Act 29 Dead In The Rain. We get to meet Rei's mother and for a second I thought Rei's mother would meet the same fate as Alice's father. But thankfully Rei shows up and everything ends well with her mom joining the group to go meet Rei's father and Takeshi's mother at a school.

I just finished the first chapter of Omamori Himari volume 1. I love it! The art style is fantastic. It should be noted that the artist (Milan Matra?) has a flair for keeping the art crisp and clean, without oversimplifying it. I mean to say that in any given panel; the art is emotionally charged, yet at the same time it's relatively easy to distinguish things like: what is going on, who's who, and who's saying what. This appears to be a tall order in manga, but Milan Matra pulls it off with aplomb. The best part is, Milan Matra appears to have an affinity for pantsu that rivals even mine. Here's an interesting little tidbit of information regarding Milan Matra that I pulled from ANN:

His pen name came from the portable anti-tank missile MILAN (French: Missile d´infanterie léger antichar) and its manufacturer Matra (now part of MBDA).

@ joelgundam01 and Cheap One - Thanks again guys for guiding me to this most glorious of manga. It was your rave reviews and advice that were the impetus of my discovery of this little gem.

@ joelgundam01 and Cheap One(again) - Shame on you for pushing me down this rabbit hole called manga! Will I ever find my way back out?

Some people think the Azumanga Daioh manga is better than the show.
Like Lucky Star it's a 4 panel type comic.
Some of the comic timing is a bit better in the manga than the show.

However the dub voices just put it slightly over the manga.

Though like I stated both of them have kinda sad endings (cause it's so fun you never want it to end).

I personally have the rather out of print ADV Manga version of it.
The more recent Yen Press version is an omnibus (all 4 volumes in one huge book). I heard Azuma cleaned up or redid some of the art for this version.
I personally have not looked at it to see the differences.

The omnibus is kinda expensive at about $26.
So I have not really been in a rush to get it.
I don't think the library carries it either.

Figured you would enjoy this manga. It only gets better as the number of girls go up in Yuuto's life.

Yen Press also does a good job of translating what all the spirits and such are. As it deals heavily with ones that aren't big in the West/US.

I noticed a lot of informative footnotes and even translation of the the "sounds". From what little experience I have, I think that Omamori Himari is manga excellence. I'm about halfway through volume 1 and have yet to be confused by a single panel.

hmmm its been awhile since I last saw it, that's why I'm ordering the dvd (s). But if my memory serves me right, it was pretty good. For me, after the first episode I didn't want to stop. If you're unsure about it you can stream it on crunchy roll.

Sorry if that wasn't the kind of answer you were looking for. I was never good at recommending or giving a little feed back. A good thing I'm not a salesperson right? The company would've went under. lol

Started up Omamori Himari Vol. 9.

Oh my the start of Menageri 49 is crazy. If I didn't know better I would think I was starting up a Hentai manga. So far Vol. 9 is off to a good start, love the image of Himari they used for the TOC page, she looks great in that uniform.

I have since finished Himari. Looks like Vol. 10 will start up with a bang. All the girls got some nice fan service time as well.

Yea, TOC is that. Don't know if it is called that in manga, if not the page that tells you where the chapters/menagerie starts.

There is a scene between Shizuku and Himari in Menageri 54 that I think was made for you. When you reach it, you must let me know what you think of it. Trust me you will know what I am talking about once you get there.

Just wrapped up Omamori Himari volume three. There were some nice little treats at the end. Not to mention that it was quite a cliffhanger, but there were a couple of comedy shorts to boot. There was also a great chibi shot of Himari and a fanservice shot of her too.

That series just gets more into the fanservice and randyness as you go. After the last volume I read (the hot spring story of course) I had to go find my wife...and see what she was..er..doing. wink

Great to read you are enjoying Omamori Himari, Kiku.

So who is your favorite girl so far? Based on your other posts about it I would guess little miss water demon Shizuku.

I've started reading Triage X made by Shouji Sato. He is of course best known for drawing Highschool Of The Dead.

Now when looking at the art of Triage X you can tell it is done by the same guy. It has a very HOTD feel to it and many of the characters so far in Triage X do look like missing HOTD characters.

Yen Press starts off by explaining what Triage means and the origin of the word. This pretty much sets up what the story is going to be about. Which is "to select" mainly dealing with patients in a medical center. Where the characters are pretty much assassins and they have to kill "the selected" person that was chosen to die, so that someone else can live.

It seems like a pretty good story and Sato doesn't shy away from bringing on the fanservice that you see in HOTD. So far I would say this has more then what you see in HOTD. It is more on par with the amount you see in the HOTD anime.

I "flipped through" 'bout a hundred pages of Triage X on an online site that lets you view manga for free. The interface sucks donkey b???s, but Triage X looks kinda cool.

Who's my favorite Omamori Himari character. Am I that transparent? What's not to like about a dripping wet kawaii loli tsundere with six a foot tongue in a school swimsuit? And yes, I'm enjoying Omamori Himari very much. I'm about halfway through volume 4. I've toyed around with manga and graphic novels in the past, not to mention comic books; but as far as I'm concerned Omamori Himari sets the bar.

You don't like the interface? Well watch out for HOTD cause Sato does the same thing in it. Triage X is set up very much like HOTD in both art and interface.

No no. I'm sorry. What I meant by interface, was the website itself that I was at. It was far from legit. "Flipping cyber pages" is a b???? with a crummy interface. I really liked the art that I saw in Triage X. I was actually at another site (I forgot where) that shows that we can exect at least five volumes of Triage X. I believe that's how many have been released across the pond.

I'm also kinda thinkin' 'bout checkin' out HOTD when the next omnibus makes the scene, if they're both still available.

Go after the Color Omnibus now, which contains vols 1-4. It's well worth the price in my opinion. It's rare to see a manga in a large hard cover book. The second Omnibus will release out some time next year and will cover vols. 5-7.

Don't know! Yen Press is pretty unpredictable when it comes to print runs.

You should be fine, but I don't take any chances when it comes to unique items like this.

That's probably the best strategy. A Yen Press sale usually occurs every four months, so you won't be waiting too long.

I wouldn't wait until the second omnibus releases, since it's just slated for sometime in 2013 at the moment. It could be in Spring or it could be in the late Fall. Who knows!

I have now finished Triage X Vol. 1.

I like the way the story is set up so far. The main characters are part of this underground justice team. I would say very much in the style of Batman, expect they don't have all the fancy gadgetry as old Bruce.

I think I will continue following this, though I would like to see a return of HOTD cause so far it is the better manga.

Just finished March Story vol 4. Just started reading Black Lagoon vol 9 (love it!)
I just purchased Dogs 0-7 so that is next.
Does anyone has any favorites or darker manga suggestions?? I was looking at Biomega as a potential.
I have been watching anime for years and have quite the collection. Just started reading manga a few months ago and just want to find some gems that are out there. I am open to anything except that hentai bs.
I live in Montana and there is not many fans up here.
I do read Bleach on a weekly basis.
Anything would help!!!!

I mainly read ecchi stuff and I am just going to guess you won't like them with the hentai comment.

I'm personally excited for a new manga coming over titled "BTOOOM!" it is about a group of people dropped off on an island and they have to kill each other with BIMs which are bombs with different types of setups. Some explode on impact some have a timer some are smoke bombs and so on.

Once you kill 6 people you can get off the island and most of the people there played the video game "BTOOOM" which is where the BIM set up came from.

Ecchi doesn't bother me. I read Kenichi and some other titles that have plenty of fan service. Just don't care for crazy over the top. I will have to check out that series you mentioned. I like the premise.. i also like super violent stuff like Elfen Lied.
Thanks for the suggestion!

I just recently watched the Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple anime. I am fairly new to manga as well. I recently read both volumes of Qwaser Of Stigmata. It was pretty good, and violent; although it might not be to your liking due to the ecchi level being quite high. I am currently reading Omamori Himari volume 6. I just can't get enough! I can't praise Omamori Himari and Milan Matra enough. It's packed with action and ecchi and great art. Also of note is the cleanliness of the art style and layout. It's not sparse by any means. I simply mean to say that it's very easy to follow; and to know who's saying what, and what's going on in any given panel and/or page. I recently received volume 9 and am anxiously awaiting news regarding the preorder release of volume 10.

Wow you already on Vol 6 of Himari? The wait will be long for you waiting on Vol 10 with being so used to just starting the next volume when you finish the last one. One thing I kind of hate about following a manga while it is still coming out.

Renji, yea "BTOOOM!" is pretty good. I haven't read the manga yet just been watching the anime on Crunchyroll but I hear it follows the manga pretty close so far. Also found out recently we should be getting the anime as well as Sentai has the license.

I skipped "Commence Operation" and moved on to the volume six of Omamori Himari. I figure I'll wait and see if volume ten has a bonus story in it as well, plus I'm monogamous when it comes to anime & manga. One story at a time. I left a bookmark in volume five where "Commence Operation" starts so I can come back to it when I've finished Omamori Himari.

It's actually Milan's first work. The one-shot (one chapter manga) that got his name known.

Is it just me, or is there more to Shizuku than just her catchphrase: "You know?"? She seems to relate to her life as a "show" on a few occasions. I'm just starting to pick up on it. Then again it could all be in my head. Either way, I love Omamori Himari and rue the day that I run out of volumes to read.

No I think you have a sort of self contained struggle with all five of the "main" characters. Yuto, Rinko, Himari, Shizuku and Kuesu.

At least I view those five as the main characters of the manga.

Yea, I think she says that when they go to Yuto's grandparents place or when Himari turns into a loli. I think the "show" part is just a joke to break the forth wall.

In a later chapter you see Rinko really grow into a character, with a story from her past. I really think they should of had that happen earlier in the manga as she kind of gets left behind with Himari and Shizuku and even more so when Kuesu and Liz join the gang.

I like how she's come think of herself as a vital tether to normalcy in Yuuto's life. You're right, there's character development in Omamori Himari. It's not shoved in your face though, it's subtle. I think that Omamori Himari would come off as just another Harem to a lot of people, but it's much better than that. And there's pantsu.

Shizuku's all dressed up like she's in When They Cry or something, not to mention her face is contorted with pent up rage. This is a side of her I didn't expect to see, you know? I think she's goona kill that girl.

You're getting close to being all caught up on OH. Volume 8 is a ton of fun and the extra little side chapter at the end has a ton of 4th wall breaking jokes. Which I do enjoy in my harem comedies like Omamori Himari.

Yep, it'll be a long wait until 10. When I finish 9, I'll go back and read Commence Operation! to tide me over. So I can expect more "Shizuku commenting on the show" awesomeness in volume 8?

Yea, to me Volume 8 is really when the manga starts to show off it isn't just an ecchi/harem title. All the main characters are set up and the fight against the Nine Tails is starting to shape up.

Shizuku is her normal self, if you are asking about the extra chapter. She does throw in a good line.

I've been holding back on volume 0 too, so I've got that to fall back on until 10; phew. I wonder if volume 10 will have more "Commence Operation" in it like 5 did?

No as Joel pointed out it was a one shot thing he made before Omamori Himari.

Volume 10 just has Chapters 56-62 of Omamori Himari.

Nope! Like I said it was a "one shot". In other words, only 1 chapter was ever made.

I just aboput fell out of my chair laughing when I started volume 9 of Omamori Himari. The scene depicts a sleeping Yuuto "sleep molesting" a very awake Himari. When Yuuto awakens; Shizuku, intending to tell them that it's time for breakfast, walks in on them. Yuuto is subsequently doused and toungue strangled by a jealous and enraged
Shizuku. I was in stitiches!

Oh my the start of Menageri 49 is crazy. If I didn't know better I would think I was starting up a Hentai manga. So far Vol. 9 is off to a good start, love the image of Himari they used for the TOC page, she looks great in that uniform.


And it just gets better from there.

Just finished volume 9 of Omamori Himari. Talk about setting up for the final showdown. I can't wait. Thankfully I've got volume 0 to read while I chomp at the bit for 10.

Just finished Alice in the Country of Hearts and it was rather disappointing. My mind was blown majority of the way through (I never understood the original Alice in wonderland lol) and it was very fun.

*SPOILERS*
...That is until I realized that Alice/Hatter was canon. mad Blegh! Julius was my favorite and even creepy rabbit Peter grew on me. I also ended up predicting that the Hatter and the Queen were related, so it wasn't that much of a surprise. Ace, this dude through me for a loop the entire 3 omnibuses, I wasn't sure whether to feel sorry for him or hate him b/c the man is seriously a psycho.

Considering there are so many spin- offs from Alice in the Country of Hearts I don't think there really is a set cannon pairing. Kinda the shoujo equivalent of the Gakuen Heaven series. But I could be wrong so don't quote me on that.

Finished Omamori Himari 0. It's a great guideline for keeping the world of Omamori Himari straight, plus it's filled with fanservice.

I read Naruto 614 and Bleach 521 this weekend smile I also read the Berserk manga but it takes a really long time for each volume from that manga to be released and its never at a steady schedule.

Yeah Dark Horse is like that with all its manga properties. The only exception I can think of to the delayed release rule would probably be the Gantz series which pretty much comes out regularly every other month. If you wanna talk about huge lengths of time between volume release though try reading MPD Psycho or Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. There's at least a 2 year gap between each volume release.

So I was looking around to see if anybody had rescued Strawberry Marshmallow yet.
No luck, but I did find someplace to read up to the latest volume online.
Apparently it's up to volume 8 & still going.

We only got up to volume 5 before it either was cancelled or Tokyo Pop went splat.

I read a chapter just to see if whomever translated it did a good job.
It was pretty funny (just like the real manga/anime) though I kinda wish they toned down the honorifics (Miu never calls her "older sister" Oni-San in the official translations).
In fact all of them call her Nobue.

Fan translations normally keep a lot of the Japanese stuff in tack like honorifics. Just something you have to deal with when reading them.

If they are calling her "Onii-san", then they are not doing a good job translating it.

Onii-san = Big Brother
Onee-san = Big Sister

Go after the Color Omnibus now, which contains vols 1-4. It's well worth the price in my opinion. It's rare to see a manga in a large hard cover book. The second Omnibus will release out some time next year and will cover vols. 5-7.

Well this is no longer true. As the Japanese have pushed back the color editions of Vol 5 and 6 as seen here(the official Japanese manga site so be weary of heavy ecchi shots)

Also Yen Press' twitter revealed they are putting in the "Lighting Pop" art book in their release as well. Which had fan service images of HOTD and Triage X.

I noticed on Jbox that they have both color versions (volume 5 and 6) untranslated in their listings. They weren't preorder either so I think they were released either earlier this month or late last month.

Yea, they came out in early Feb. I haven't seen anything on Vol 7's color release. Though Yen Press still has Fall 2013. So it should come out sometime before that as no way we see Vol 7 colored first.

More on topic: The last manga I finished reading was Mardock Scramble volume 6. It definitely wasn't the best volume out of the series. It didn't really have any action and seemed like filler more than anything.

Mayo Chiki vol. 1 - I really like this title. The art work is really clean and I really like the comedy.

Angel Para Bellum vols 1+2 - Wow! I like this title a lot. I received the first 2 volumes on Monday and read both of them in one sitting. The art is by Nozomu Tamaki (Dance in the Vampire Bund), while the story is written by someone else (Kent Minami). The title is very action packed, while the story is much more shallow compared to DITVB. However, I really like the concept. Two fallen angels (Azrael and Gabriel) are sent to the human world to protect the main character (MC) from the demons who want his power. The MC is a Nephilim (half angel, half human) who has the power to either save or destroy the world.

Click to reveal.. (Not really a spoiler, but could be NSFW)
What I really like about this title is that it goes into detail on why all angels look female and they have a lot fun with it. The truth is that they are hermaphrodites (have both male and female reproductive organs) and since the boobs are usually present. It's easier to just dress as a woman than a guy.

That's why I went after the manga.

I'm kind of wondering if Angel Para Bellum has been cancelled. Volume 3 was originally listed as coming out in April, but it's no longer listed on Rightstuf or Amazon. Or maybe Seven Seas is having problems in general because the new Witch Hunter was supposed to be out today but now it's not coming out til the end of the month at the earliest.

The volume was delayed in Japan and most likely Seven Seas just pulled it for now, until they can re-solicit it.

Well, that's good to know. I don't want the company to go down now that I'm actually reading some of their titles. Though I'm still not happy that they made the decision to revive Blood Alone knowing that after volume 6 the series would be under a different company and need to be licensed differently :P

If it ever does get a dub, I'd recommend checking it out. It's loads of fun. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Just finished the first volume of Btoom!!. So far, it's definitely in my keeper pile. It's reminding me a lot of series like Battle Royale, Gantz, Attack on Titan, Bloody Monday, and Cage of Eden in that it isn't sugar coating the violence. The protagonist has his flaws, but for me that only highlights the difference between his true character and how he came to perceive himself in the gaming world. It's not my favorite of the ultraviolent genre, but it does gain major pointage in my book for not resorting to using guns. So far- B

Have you read Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project? It's an alternate world version of NGE with an insanely high level of fan-service. The series was even parodied by the author of Queens Blade Struggle in the Neon Genesis Evangelion Tribute Comic.

Just finished reading The Neon Genesis Evangelion Tribute Comic. I initially bought it mainly because Yun Kouga contributed but the whole thing was just amazing. Especially the story Misato's Shinji Ikari Raising Project Report. It was one of the funniest things I've read in a while.

kiku's hoping that all the Omamori Himari manga interest here at Anime Today will instigate the release of the anime.

Oh yeah, and kiku's anxiously awaiting volume 10.

Well OH Vol 10 came in today and I just got done reading it. And I am sad that it is over. Hopefully Yen Press announces Vol 11 soon, as I must know what happens next.

The volume delivers on all the things you come to expect from OH. We get lots of action with some nice fan service to lighten the mood, plus some fun harem moments.

I will discuss the spoiler, below.
Click to reveal..
Okay, the big blockbuster moment is Kuesu's death.
WOW, is all I can say about it. I never thought we would see anyone die in this, let alone one of the girls in Yuuto's harem. Even more shocking is she is on the cover of Vol 11. So I am totally unsure about what that means.


Great job on another entertaining volume Milan Matra and I can't wait for volume 11's release. It will be very hard to hold out and not read the fan scans.

You haven't read it yet?

You are going to be in shock about how it happens. S*** goes down is all i'll say. Vol 11 should be very interesting.

Nope, not yet. I'm in the middle of another book, and I'm a pretty slow reader.

I warned you guys, that there was a shocking scene in volume 10.

Click to reveal.. (major spoiler from volume 11)
Kuesu gets resurrected by her mother. I'm not sure though, if this was her first time dying or if she has actually died before in the past. After all, there was a scene earlier on where Kuesu's mother was preforming some sort of ritual on her.

I'm not expecting to see volume 11 come out until early next year.

Omamori Himari 10

The art inside the front (back?) cover is just, well... I love Milan Matra. He's got a real knack for... detail.

I finished Omamori Himari 10. Wow... just wow. Talk about action, but wait; before I get started. I leisurely read the first few chapters, but when I approached the halfway point; it was one solid read until I was done. Milan played with the frames a lot in this one. One important scene even took up the top half or better of two pages for impact. This volume was tumultuos! Lots of different speech bubbles goin' on, and action; did I mention action. Milan himself even noted the high content of battle in this one. He also noted that he was so focused this time that there was little room left for fanservice, but boy oh boy; when it was there... it was there. Ah, so much happened this time!

Fair warning: spoilers ahead!
Click to reveal..
Shizuku apparently takes something of a backseat this time, yet... her (borderline maternal) house of water only PROTECTED ALL OF JAPAN FROM THE MOST POWERFUL DEMONS, DEMON SLAYERS, AND AYAKASHI IN THE WORLD!!! Oh and that ninja girl, Kaya; is it just me or is she totally into Himari? Tama-san's out of control, which provides us with a rare pantsu shot. Why can't she just eat crepes? Himari is well... awesome, to say the least. Having all of her weapons at hand at the drop of a hat (or stomach contents) doesn't hurt either. Good job Aya. It's awesome to see her in top form. Yuuto's really startin' to throw the smack down too...

...although, I've got a sneaking suspicion that we haven't seen every top demon yet.
More, MORE, MOAR!

Thought you would love this volume, and I am of course also excited for Volume 11. I was just so sad when Volume 10 finished.

Thought you would enjoy Kaya's role in this one. I do agree with you about her, as that is heavily hinted at in her first appearance when the gang goes to Yuuto's grandparents house.

Kill off one of the main characters.
I don't know if I can wait about 6 months or longer to get volume 11.


I also read up to volume 4 of Is This A Zombie and so far it's pretty much just like the anime. I still enjoyed reading it.

I really enjoyed the manga, but it's not that much different from the anime. It does have slight differences, but it's not totally different. If you've seen the anime and liked it, I would say check the manga out.

Great to read you enjoyed OH Vol. 10. I was shocked by that spoiler as well as I put in my reaction comment.

Yen Press' site already has up to December in its new releases section, but hopefully they can add in OH Vol 11 somewhere in there. As I would hate to have to wait till early 2014 for it.

I can see it being released sometime between October - December, if it won't be until a few months into next year, I might have to break down and read a scan online.

Where did you get this date? Yen Press' site has it for January 2014 and they normally release on the last Tuesday of the month. The last Tuesday is January 28, 2014.

I got it from Wikipedia, whose source for it came from Amazon's listing that says "This title will be released on January 21, 2014."

Yea, rather it is the 3rd or 4th Tuesday doesn't really matter. I do hope the Amazon date is correct, but I do expect they just randomly picked a Tuesday as I don't see any reason for Yen Press to change their current schedule.

I will be glad when I get an email that OH Vol 11 is on the way. So I can find out what happens with Yuuto and the gang.

Well that's typical. Volume 11 of OH just came out in Japan and it's being released in January. Meanwhile Blood Lad is up to 9 volumes in Japan and the next volume isn't coming out here until February even though we're 3 volumes behind TT^TT

Well, they were massively behind and they had to do something to prevent people from reading the scanlation instead. It's still gonna be a year before we've caught up even at the pace they're releasing them now.

Just finished reading the main story line for Sailor Moon. I have the two short story volumes on order. They must have put in a LOT of filler to stretch the story line to 200 anime episodes.

I finished Blue Exorcist Vol. 2 last night. I wasn't sure if I was going to regret blind-buying the two TRSI Bundles that were up a few weeks ago, but I'm glad I did. It's so good! And the artwork is fantastic and really intricate.

Since it's the last volume, it'll most likely come out much sooner than that. Black God's final volume (19) came out not so long ago and there was only a 3 month wait from vol. 18's release. Usually the volumes came out every 6 months for that title.

Don't be sad... it's a happy day. Maybe after all the support that's been shown for the manga, somebody will license the anime. And fret not, I'm sure Milan Matra will keep busy.

Reading this really weird late 80s/early 90s shojo manga called Moon Child by Reiko Shizimu. I'm only four volumes in, and it already has space mermaids, New York life, the late 20th century dance scene, an impending nuclear apocolypse, and tons of homoerotic underovertones for the fangirls (It's done with a pretty sly sense of humor though, so I'm okay with it). Definitely looking forward to reading more.

I just picked back up Berserk and I'm on volume 19. I had previously stopped around volume 13. Right around the time the golden age arc ended. I couldn't find a copy of volume 32 anywhere for a decent price, so I didn't want to keep going. But, now that I have a copy of 32, I started it up again. So far, it has got to be one of if not my favorite manga series.

Currently devouring Tsutomu Nihei's Blame! from my library. I really wanted to read Biomega and Knights of Sidonia, but I figured since all of his works supposedly take place in the same universe I'd be better off just reading them all.

It certainly is a weird experience. Dialogue is really sparse and most chapters follow the formula of 1. Protagonist tries to help someone 2. That someone dies 3. LOTS OF STUFF COMES CRASHING DOWN! But I'm still enjoying it regardless. It reminds me of Texhnolyze, and that's one of my favorite shows so I'm looking forward to the rest of it.

I love Tsutomu Nihei's manga and I'm hoping we'll be getting the Knights of Sidonia anime someday. By the way, since you're into Nihei you should probably be into Q Hayashida's Dorohedoro as well (that is if you're not reading it already grin )

Decided to read Monster Musume last night to see what the hullabaloo was all about. Fairly cute, the plot was a little thin but not as non-existent as I was afraid it was going to be. And read Love In Hell tonight. Comparing the 2, Love In Hell was way more ecchi than Monster Musume. Both had varying states of female nudity, but LIH had male nudity. And the part where the MC pulls on Koyori's horns (1st chapter) was more suggestive than the popsicle scene in MM. Either way I'll probably continue to get both series.

Recently finished...
-Sexy Voice And Robo. It was really awesome in an imaginative and weird way, but like so much cool stuff it was cut short so it didn't have an ending
-Assorted works of Yoshihiro Tatsumi (A Drifting Life, Push-Man, Abandon In The Old Tokyo, Goodbye, Fallen Words). Most of his work is stuff from the 70s that are really dark and unlike most manga out there, his newer stuff is likewise.
-Appleseed. The artwork was fantastic, but the story felt unnecessarily complicated and at times really boring. It was only four volumes long, but went with standalone stories instead of one large arc (I'm pretty sure it was cancelled/cut short so I guess that's not entirely the author's fault). The vast cyberpunk cityscapes and erotic muscular women were cool to look at, but it became quite a slog finishing it. I've seen the traditionally animated OVA from the 90s and enjoyed it more even though it barely followed the manga's story. I'm curious if the CG adaptations stick to the manga or go their own way also.

I've been chugging through Banana Fish, pretty much the most seineny shoujo title I've ever read (thankfully my library even has the insanely OOP volumes). I also read volume 11 of Dawn Of The Arcana, a series I'm not really sure why I'm still reading. It had gotten to the point where I was basically speedreading volumes because 1. I was hoping I would absorb less of it and not be able to register that I was not enjoying what I was reading and 2. The dialogue/art is very simple. I was actually genuinely surprised by and enjoyed the direction that the story took in volume 11 for the first time since probably volume 3 or 4. Of course, volume 12 doesn't come out UNTIL APRIL so so much for things finally becoming interesting.

I loved Banana Fish, but the ending was just so heart breaking. I don't think any manga has ever made me cry as much as that one did. I think the closest I've gotten was the ending to Pita-Ten and that only lasted for a few seconds. Still get a little choked up about it [Banana Fish cry ]

Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows

Alright I really enjoyed this first volume. Before this I had only ever seen the anime. If you have seen the anime it does have some stuff in common, but the anime does stray from the manga's version. We get a beach visit, so good to see that being covered so early.

Volume 1 ends on a cliffhanger and has me looking forward to the next release.

In case anyone is wondering my personal favorites are;
Good Ninja: Asuka
Evil Ninja: Yomi

You know… there's an Asuka Damage Version figure up for preorder in the adult section?

The past month or so I've read:

Attack on Titan Volumes 1-3, not much is different from the anime, I can't wait to get up to new material.

Sankarea Volume 3, stuff is starting to get interesting with the arrival of a new character.

Is This a Zombie Volume 6, I love that this is different from the anime version. Since they announced that the manga was ending, I can't wait to see how it all ends.

No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular Volume 1, it's just as funny as the anime. You just have to feel so sorry for her, but at the same time you find it funny.

I'm now up to volume 23 of Berserk, this is still my favorite manga series. I love it. I'm taking my time with it, because I don't want to catch up to fast and then have to wait a very longs time for any new chapters.

I'm in the early volumes of Eden: It's An Endless World! The artwork is Akira/Appleseed levels of detail and the story is pretty good so far. The author's comments at the end of volume 1 made it sound like is was closely inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion, so I'm interested to see where it will go. And I finished Banana Fish about a week ago; my reaction was... similar to Sevi's frown.

I keep forgetting to write a review for this, but I finished reading Black Bard a while ago. Very cute overall. It started off episodic but smoothed into the plot over time. There were a few spelling/ grammar issues possibly because it's a small publisher. I would recommend it to fans of cutesy but slightly dark fantasy like Jing: King of Bandits, March Story, Shoulder a Coffin Kuro, or the works of Kaori Yuki.

Finished Hellsing yesterday and it was better than I could've anticipated. Despite the sudden ending, the artwork was so brilliant and bizarre, featuring tons of violence and super sexy people on both ends of the gender spectrum. Can't wait for all the OVAs to be released over here.

Parasyte shot up to the top of my to read list after it was announced that it was getting an anime adaptation (my dream came true!). So far, it's a great gory manga with cool and realistic art that has some classic 90s manga vibes to it.

Eden: It's An Endless World has also surpassed my expectations. Seven volumes in, it seems like the author is writing/drawing a series of intense and moving character studies that happens to have a post apocalyptic setting featuring mechas and ultra-gore, which can be really fascinating. And it's not like the author is skipping out on the art because he's focusing on the characters; it is top notch. I'm really hoping Dark Horse reprints some of the super OOP volumes so I can begin collecting the series instead of getting it through my library. I really recommend it.

I wonder why I hadn't heard about this. Parasyte is an awesome series.
Oh and looking at the list you linked to, there isn't an anime for MPD Psycho but there is a live action mini-series that was directed by Takahashi Miike.

Ooh, I knew there was a live action series of it, but I did not know insane Miike was behind it. I definitely have to check that out.

I'm up to volume 7 of Attack on titan and I can say that the anime is adapted very well. I can't wait for Monday because volume 9 will ship out and that whole new material that didn't make it into the anime as of now.

I also read A Centaur's Life volume 1.

I finished up Spice and Wolf volume 8.

It was good but very confusing with how it went. At first it was about material season 1 of the anime left out and then when that arc was finished up it started on important content that i know from reading the novels comes after season 2 of the anime. So i figured the author of the manga just wasn't going to adapt season 2 of the anime in the manga. But then out of no where just as that content arc came to an end, it then started up on the content that is season 2 of the anime!

Confused about all i just said?

Yeah, i am too. Haha crazy

Finished Parasyte. It was cool how the story transformed. It started off as like a school comedy, then it became a fighting show, and finally had some crazy, 1v1 showdown that was like the final battle in Arnold Schwarzenegger's Predator (I think I've lost track of how many times I've seen that film), which earned some major respect in my book. Unique art throughout, and the story never got old. Pretty great.

Just caught up with the Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches manga on Crunchyroll. It's surprisingly really good and funny! And has a lot of twists. It looks like it could be ending soon (could probably end in a chapter or two), but hopefully that's not the case. I'd really like to see more. There was a promotional video made for it a few months back, but no anime was actually announced. Hopefully there will be, I'd love to see that!

I might try Fort of Apocalypse next.

Finished reading the last volume (2 of 2) of Sickness Unto Death last night. It's the story of a college psychology major who moves in with and falls in love with a girl with a mysterious psychological illness. The author threw in some major plot twists in the second volume and also ramped up the number of sex scenes (which were tastefully done). If you're into Psychology/ Philosophy and/or the Soren Kierkegaard book of the same name I'd highly recommend this series.

Also read Wolfsmund volume 1. The story is set in the country which will become Switzerland during the period when it was under the rule of the Austrian Hapsburg empire.
Most of the plot is centered around various groups of rebels who are trying to flee the 3 cantons though a guard point in the Alps called Wolfsmund or Wolfs Maw by the natives.
At this point there are only 3 main characters: the Hapsburg Duke who controls the area, the woman who runs an inn beside Wolfsmund, and Wolfram the man who guards Wolfsmund and is rumored to be the devil's child born of a woman and a wolf. It's incredibly violent and has the potential of becoming somewhat formulaic but so far is fairly interesting.
