Thread: What manga are you reading and how do you like it? What do you plan to read?

    I had read Wandering Emanon vol 1. But it was dropped by the scanlator. Recently a different group take it and I'm starting again with the vol 2. The art is just amazing, but the pace is not the best. I would call it intimist.

    I'm kind of up for reading a sports manga any recommendations?
    I prefer ones with great characters, if the manga is too focused on the sports aspect it's hard for me to get invested.

    For example Ippo is that way where an insane amount of chapters is spend on the matches(although Ippo at least did a decent job of building it's opponents).
    I kind of liked reading Baby Steps for a while(read until the second trip to the US) but yeah the matches are starting to drag on in this one and sadly none of the opponents are interesting enough to read through them.

    I'm almost sure that Eyeshield 21 is my favorite sports series despite the awkward racial commentary. Chihayafuru, Teppuu and Hikaru no Go are other titles I enjoyed quite a bit. I can't seem to get into Kuroko nor Haikyuu, is there anything else good out there? Is Area no Kishi any good?

    Why don't you try Real ? It is really focused on the characters rather than the matches (especially in the last volumes). So if you can bear a serie with only 1 volume a year it should be perfect.
    Also there is no Adachi in your list.
    And there is Ping Pong which has an anime adaptation at the moment but it's quite short

    Sports are not my cup of tea manga, but maybe this could help. I haven't read it, but I guess Kokuo no Hito is a manga that falls in the kind of manga you are asking for: more focused in the character than in the games. I'm reading Innocent by the same author, and it's simple amazing; if you like the realistic art his art is just spectacular. He is great storyteller, with a deep development of the psychology of his characters (tho that could vary from one series to another).

    Also I'd support kdom suggestion about trying one of Adashi. I'm reading Itsumo Misura by Adashi, and it's nice reading; his humour is nice and amusing.

    ?

    Are you talking about the "Black guys have superior muscles" and "Japanese are inferior to americans" thing in Eyeshield 21.
    The first one is kind of a scientific fact (not in the way i described it), the second one is kind of a common cliché for sports Manga. Since Japan is not really outstanding at any sport, the main char is always treated like an underdog because of his nationality.
    At least HnIppo and Captain Tsubasa have the same kind of speech.

    Yes that among other things, and it's not the fact that this is raised as a story point but how it's treated within the story which makes it awkward. I don't read Tsubasa but I read Ippo until right before them preparing for the world stage and that manga isn't as awkward regarding the issue.

    I´ve read it 4 years ago, so you may be right about that and i just don´t remember.
    And i guess in Ippo and Tsubasa they don´t downgrade the Japanese, they simply talk wonders about the opponents (damn Mexicans in Ippo).

    Finished Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer and Genkaku Picasso, and caught up with Sengoku Youko. The first was an above average read, not a typical shonen and its greatest strength was the character development but something about it kept me from really liking it. Having read the ending of Genkaku Picasso, it was so emotional that I wanted to cry. I'd recommend this manga, especially to people like me who tire of the mainstream battle shonen mangas. Sengoku Youko started off slow, but I really got into it once part one was over and they changed up the main cast. The shogun was an amazing character and it has been sometime since I took such a liking to a character.

    I plan to get into Durarara by reading the manga but I think its original source material was light novel/anime? I want to check out Vinland Saga but I'm having doubts to whether or not I'll become interested in it.

    Try Ashita no Joe .

    Edit : I second Real . It's a damn great manga though sports is like a sub-genre and there are no long matches or anything . It's more focused on Three characters and their development . It's also made by the Author of Slam Dunk and Vagabond.

    Spoiler:
    I was so glad he lived on as Senya's sword

    I read the first two volumes of Genkaku Picasso in a bookstore and downloaded the last volume from a link an AP member gave me in a PM. Would you like me to send you the link?

    You comment made me read the summary, and I found it interesting. But unfortunately there is no scanalation beyond chapter 4 or 5 and where I live there's no way to get printed volumes.

    If you want, you can download it from this link (it has all three volumes) and read it from your computer. I don't know how legal this is but scanlations are a gray area too so... (Just click on "G" under the "Mega" heading if you want to download from the link)

    Is someone reading Is Rieroukan Still Alive? ? The art is really nice, and, how could I say it, the author enjoys drawing woman body a lot... Still the mix of seinen, comedy, slice of life and some magical element has great potential. I hope it won't go too much on the fanservice. The last chapter was
    Spoiler:


    Still waiting for the story to grow.

    Me too. I heard the story is top notch but the art style just throws me off. Normally, that wouldn't affect me but maybe it's because it's too "retro"

    Oyasumi Punpun is probably the best manga I ever read.
