wish death note was a mini series or something instead of the one shot, but was entertaining for what it is

I read the new Jump series. What I got out of it, first and foremost, is how fucking derivative they are. You can literally just lists the manga they borrowed from in real time. Originality wise, it was shit.

Muscle vs Magic #1 was bad. Really bad. I can grant it that it's the first issue and that it didn't have time to deploy its world. But then again, I'm left with very little desire to see the little I saw of it expanded upon. Nazi magical realm. Please Japan, GET A GRIP !

Guardian of the Witch #1 was all in all farrr better. But the setting is so derivative. A lot of Attack on Titans here, some Kimetsu no Yaiba there, etc. Well, I guess at the end of the day it still has a better potential.

TIL that Flash Forward is by Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth.
Not sure how to process this information.

Oh, Apoz Volume 4 is out? I better pick it up soon.




I picked up a new series, "Okashiratsuki".




It's a seinen series about a young couple dealing with non-conformity and the modern society expectations out of family, love and other things. The story is heartwarming, but also can be soul-crushing in a way that is very relatable, especially if any of you have dealt with (or in the receiving end of) persecution or discrimination in real life.

Fair warning though, please exercise moderation when reading if you're currently experiencing emotional distress. The subject matter in this book can be rather heavy, at times.

EDIT: Before anyone asks, no, it's not an age-gap relationship.

Kvik But what it is then ? I’m super not ready to tackle the subject matter if it’s as you describe it, but I’m curious AF now.
Please spoiler it :grimacing-face:

Yep, came out in October here actually, but I only bought it now. Though it looks like the english one only came out like 2 weeks ago, huh.
Volume 5 coming in May here, and english one in June. Interesting.

Please spoiler it :grimacing-face:
Utsuki, the man of said couple was born with a vestigial tail and faced prejudice from people who are afraid of it and wants nothing to do with it. While obviously in this day and age vestigial tail is trivial to surgically removed, it is meant to be an allegory of the unwillingness of society to accept non-conformity, such as different skin colour, interracial marriages in a certain part of the world, prejudice towards disabled people, and so on.

In the manga, Utsuki tried to hide his "condition" lest he is bullied, and when his secret was exposed, the school forced him to quit and he had to separate from his girl, Nachi. She's the only person who is willing to accept him as a person but due to how Utsuki has been treated poorly all his life (despite of his loving family), he is unwilling to accept himself, and not until Nachi had an accident he finally turned around.

I just passed 5 minutes with my mind blown. Never heard about that condition. Still trying to find some legit webpage that can confirm or deny.
Man, was I not expecting that.

But yeah, it doesn't sound like a very happy read :anguished-face:


Edit - Found a legit page, not saying more because of spoilers.

This reminds me that I'm still missing volume 5 & 6 from Sidonia :02dead:
I started collecting them when the series was already close to ending and those 2 in particular were not available anymore, but I figured I just gotta wait for a reprint.
Well, a reprint kind of happened but it's the Master Edition, which is way different. I guess I'll need to try my luck at some flea markets or something dammit.

That said I kinda do want the Master Edtitions, but they're really expensive - ~30€ a piece (which is 2 regular volumes though).
And they are pretty awesome, I have the ones for Blame. 😅

Just finished reading Quintuplets (I read like half of it a while ago and waited until it ended to binge the rest).

It was actually really good for a good chunk but the ending was extremely underwhelming. Eh. A shame.
The art was fantastic throughout though.
