Not very fond of hyper violence. So I will logically read Dorohedoro asap. What’s a few more traumas ? :anguished-face:

More seriously I also love weird fiction and the mangaka had me hook and sinker at the ‘what did the guy inside said ?’ part.

I should also finish reading Dorohedoro now that it's complete.
Undecided if I should reread it from the beginning or trust my memory enough to jump back in where I left - if I manage to find where that was, lol.

Funny to read you now, I was thinking earlier today that it was a long time since you were here and wondered if you had read anything good recently.

It's pretty cool isn't it. I'm about 5 chapters behind again (I prefer batch-reading nowadays :D), need to catch up again.
I admit that I didn't read the synopsis and jump straight into chapter 1 thinking it's going to be a whodunit/straight crime drama. I'm not ready for whatever cosmic horror from the n-th dimension they actually got in store.

Just read a couple One Piece and Death Note chapters.
About the later, I was impressed at first, and there are indeed great things about it, but I can't say I'm very interested right now. Feels like each issue is here for the sole purpose of adding rules upon rules to this madness. But hey I'm not even at chapter 10.

I feel that once one reaches the mid point of death note they should stop there.
The later half goes into a bizarre 'howtooutwitthem' for a very long while :p

Yeah, I kinda heard that the second half let people down big time.
The anime only covers the first half right ?

It covers both halves. There is a funny swimming gif made from one of the scenes in the 2nd half though but all in all you can just watch halfway or read, then nove onto something else :p

Started Fairy Tail, because I need more behemoth to read to go with One Piece, Berserk etc.
I... like it. Entertaining. And if nothing else I'm thankful for it to not shove the protag dream in my face as soon as it starts :so-good-blob:
Like One Piece. This on the other hand is the shonen of shonen. Everybody has a dream, everybody wants something. I would not be surprised to read next that objects have dream too.

Velleity. The manga.

Fairy Tail anime has a wonderful soundtrack. Series is generic as all hell and the fanserviceness becomes offputting, at least for me.
I have a soft spot for it but otherwise, nah, I got over generic shonen a long ass time ago, that it needs to do more to keep my attention :p

I've picked up Heart Gear over the weekend and I enjoyed it a whole lot.





It's a bi-weekly shonen sci-fi series, reminisce of Tsutomu Nihei's BLAME! It's checking all the right boxes for a decent shonen series.

  • Post-apocalyptic.
  • Lots of mechas.
  • The nature of man and machine.
  • Introspective chapters.
  • Memeable reaction faces.
  • Cutesexyrobutts.
  • Tournament arc.
  • Ridiculous outfits.
  • Maid robots.
  • Did I mention more robots?

It's a fun read, next chapter should be up tomorrow (There are 15 chapters out so far on Manga+).

I've been reading Banana Fish, MHA, Spy x Family, Chainsaw Man, and Mitama Security: Spirit Busters.
How's Mitama Security recently been? I stopped after chapter 2 or 3 since it didn't seem to be my thing. Anything interesting happen?

In terms of Jump right now I'm reading

Kimetsu no Yaiba
My Hero Academia
One Piece
Jujutsu Kaisen
Mission: Yozakura Family
Dr. Stone
Black Clover
The Promised Neverland
We Never Learn
World Trigger

though the only ones I'm up-to-date right now are Yaiba, Chainsaw Man and Yozakura Family. I prefer to read things in batches of a few weeks/months worth of chapters at a time nowadays.

Planning on reading Act-Age eventually since it seems to be fucking amazing, Haikyuu I'm waaaay behind (haven't really read much beyond what the latest anime season covered, since I thought I might just wait a while), but maybe I should catch up, since it seems to also have been stellar.
Yui Kamio Lets Loose is eeeehhh, but I'm still kinda interested where it's going now since he switched it from a supernatural comedy rom-com to a horror flavored action shonen.

I've picked up Heart Gear over the weekend and I enjoyed it a whole lot.
Heart Gear has been on my radar for a while now. I really enjoyed his previous work, Black Torch. I kinda want to let some more chapters pile up though, haha.

On a whim, I picked out Rusty Brown (by Chris Ware) from the library.

Some of the early stories are from other Ware collections that I've read, so I'm a bit surprised to find that this book and most of the stories are new as of a couple of months ago. Now I have to read it. But damn, its another big, dense, heavy in all senses of the word graphic novel. After reading My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, this megachonk will leave me burnt out on this sub genre for the rest of the calendar year for sure.

I've started reading Im - Great Priest Imhotep.



It's a fairly typical contemporary battle shonen - there are some supernatural things and there is a group fighting them, the main character has a special connection to the good and the bad and it starts with him saving a regular person from one of those things and drawing them into the supernatural world.
The art is good and it's well executed though, and it draws on egyptian mythology for its enemies and powers and I think that's pretty rare.
I'm about halfway through it by now and it's already completed, so that is nice.

I finished up the Walking Dead as i read all them through collections. I think the ending was fine if almost a bit too happy

The way Rick got done was sort of lame but I can understand why that was the way it had to happen

Just finished reading the Imhitep manga and that was some good stuff.
Really brought the hype in the second half and the good kind of shonen friendship stuffs.
