Late night manga thread.

What'cha reading?
What'cha waiting on?
What are you hoping gets scanlated?

>hidden gems
>artists that need more attention

Pictured is Takahashi Yousuke. Hox is working on some oneshots by him, so he might get more of a readership in the English community.
>>
More Takahashi.
>>
Caught up with the latest Apocalypse no Toride chapter. Was going to start reading some Black Knight Story, which Hox did a little while back.

Waiting for more Mob I suppose.

Hoping for some more Jiro Taniguchi. I wonder if my local library is going to have the last volume of Summit of the Gods anytime soon. My Father's Almanac needs someone working on it as well. I'd love to see some more Susumu Katsumata in English. He has some other stuff published in French I think, but no scanlations certainly.

Otomen_v01_p039.png
3 MB, 2819x4400
Picked up Otomen since I'm trying to read more shoujo. I'm somewhere between a third and halfway through.

It's not bad, but it stretches itself too thin. Instead of developing existing characters, the mangaka just keeps introducing new otomen and while the concept wasn't bad in the beginning, now it feels stale and redundant.

There's no romance, since the main couple is a couple in name only, and the single potential secondary couple that showed up only got a single appearance so far. I hoped that with the multitude male characters it would have a lot of background romance, which is something I'm really fond of, but instead it's just a sausagefest.

Also, to be honest, it feels rather hypocritical - it's okay if you're an otomen, and have girly hobbies or whatever - but ONLY if you're ALSO strong and tall and manly at the same time. The only otomen who didn't have those qualities is not only pretty much a joke character, he ends up getting NTRed, too. I guess it's realistic, but still, bitches and whores, man. I hope it doesn't continue in that vein.
>>
>>113084621
I'm 10-15 chapters behind too. Decided to wait for the end and then reread the whole series.
One of the best ongoings.
>>
>>113082428
That was slightly more horrific than I'd imagined.
>>
>>113084904
>sausagefest
>bitches and whores
You're not really making a good case for me. I was actually considering reading it recently. Oh well.
>>
>>113086202
Well, the bitches and whores bit was more in jest and about the mangaka rather than the girls in this. Well, other than the protagonist's mother, that one is a manipulative bitch of the highest caliber.

But yeah, if you're reading it for the girls you'll be disappointed - the main girl has some great moments, but even she doesn't appear much, and the other ones are completely forgettable side characters that barely show up.

Maybe it will change in the second part, we'll see.

That said, for shoujo it's not exactly bad - I can't bring myself to even read bad shoujo pas a volume or two, while this was reasonably entertaining.
>>
>>113084621
>end
What's up with everything ending all at once recently? And it's all series I never got around to picking up.

Guess I'll have a lot of marathoning to do soon.
>>
>>113088701
I think it's just you. I don't think I've had many series at all end on me. Except maybe Nickelodeon thanks to that Ikki magazine shutting down.
>>
>>113089212
Wait. Nickelodeon is over? The last chapter was the space one?
>>
>>113089212
Naruto, Kuroko no Basket, Koe no Katachi, Dorohedoro, Claymore...

I mean mostly longer running/popular series like those.
>>
>>113089449
Two more I think.

That's rather saddening. I liked it. Does this mean we'll get more Oddman 11 though?

I picked up a couple long shounen series to tide me over during the Fukumoto drought. I'm really liking all of them so far. Also, volume 4 of What Did You Eat Yesterday just arrived in the mail, so I'm looking forward to some more cute gay shit.
I really want to see more scans of Jin. It sucks since EGScans is a very consistent group, but they're too busy working on webtoons to release chapters more than about once a month.
>>
>>113084621

Dorohedoro is still ongoing (got moved to another magazine), so you might be waiting a while if you're want it to finish first.
>>
I don't think I've ever seen Little Forest mentioned on /a/.

Maybe for the best, because it might trick hapless anons into moving out to the countryside and becoming farmers.

Great stuff.
>>
You should check the archives first. Igarashi Daisuke is fairly well known. I didn't realize that was finished, though, so I'll read it.

Taniguchi got a lot of releases in Italy. No wonder since he took great inspiration from Vittorio Giardino.
We got Chichi no Koyomi too but I still have to read it. I wish I wasn't a poor neet.
>>
>>113098353

I haven't seen any on Share, etc. so you're probably right. Someone should scan it.

>>113099571

Does anyone know if Bastard!! has resumed publication?
>>
>>113081086
>>113099571
All this Taniguchi talk made me check what else he has published in my country(I already own Fuyu no Doubutsuen) and apparently Kodoku no Gourmet is coming out in a couple months. Definitely going to buy that, since I wanted to read it for a long time.
>>
>>113101934

I doubt it, the artist gets tired easily. He may very well be working on the next chapter, but I don't think it's been published. Who knows.
>>
>>113102818
Isn't he redrawing the old volumes?
Who gives a shit anyway, I prefer the old art an after volume 7 or 8 it goes to shit.
>>
>>113103100
>redrawing the old volumes?

I was unaware of this. Is that why there are like 3 editions lately?
>>
Started Ateya no Tsubaki again since it got picked up by a new group. Really funny that it got from Batoto on the grounds of being "borderline hentai", yet you don't see any genitals and the sex scenes aren't the focus, the psychosexual violence that follows them and the subsequent investigation by the MCs is. Shit, even I'm not that prudish, this is ridiculous.

The series itself is interesting mainly both due to the atypical MC who is a semi-misogynistic and borderline asexual shunga artist, aand the historical Edo period setting. The female MC is also nice, she's not archetypical and has an existence that doesn't depend on the MC. While the subject matter is bleak, lighter moments also exist so it balances out.

Only complaint I have is the character design for the females. Every single one of them has big tits and asses but we all know that this isn't the case in any country, let alone old Japan. The character interactions and the atmosphere feel natural but those designs sot of degrade that.

Hopefully new chapters won't take long.
>>
New Ika Musume chapter when? I'm guessing the /a/ team needs staff (or just lazy).
>>
>>113103141
Are you Italian too, by chance? We have the normal edition, the "collector" edition (or whatever it is called and then the Kanzenban, for wich I'm pretty sure Hagiwara is redrawing the old volumes.
>>
>>113103942
Just do the same I did and only read it every 50 chapters or so.

Makes all the manga with short chapters and slow releases more bearable.
>>
>>113104101

Nah, just an interested 'Murrican reader. I was browsing Amazon JP to see if there's any indication of it picking up again.

Any comparison shots of the Kanzenban edition?
>>
>>113103942
Is the project still directed by that Vert fag? I've heard he's unsufferable from an anon that left the project.
>>113104155
I remember seeing something but I don't have them.
>>
>>113104277

Vert doesn't do anything, he just hangs out in IRC. It just so happens that members of his little group are working on Ika.
>>
Reread YKK, shit's depressing. 10/10

waiting on natsu no zenjitsu & sakurasaku syndrome
>>
>>113104331
That anon said he directs the whole thing and acts like the boss.
>>
>>113105092

Well, that's just from my personal experience. He hardly even posts in the IRC, and Ika scanlations are mostly autonomous (TL is posted whenever it's done, editors get to work whenever they feel like it, and the chapters are posted).

I caught up to Berserk last night. I'm also trying to push myself through SZS but I'm having a really hard time getting interested in it. I don't want to spoil myself on the ending though. I've managed to avoid them since the manga ended.

Other than that I picked the series that are getting anime next season.

>>113106320
SZS kinda requires you to at least care about Japanese culture, if not necessarily be knowledgeable about it - basically, you have to be THIS weeaboo to get on this ride. Unless you're just in it for the girls.

Watch the rest of the anime, it's all good and I think easier to get into than the manga - you can then skip the manga chapters covered by the anime and read the rest if you still care.

I'm pulling a bunch of Takahashi Yousuke from Share. Surprised that his older anthologies are available in decent resolutions (1600px and so).

That's only half of the problem. Other half is 60 second posting cooldown. Fuck, I still remember when 4chan X suddenly broke in the middle of my story time thread when faggot implemented this shit. That's the main reason why they started to die off.
Once anon was dumping all 3 volumes of Oyaji for straight 7 or so hours with short breaks. That was really awesome, but we won't see this anyore unless OP has a jewpass.

Only for shit-tier amounts mostly. Raw distro had a bot with some amount of raw manga.

Storytime threads pretty much require a jewpass. No one wants to babysit a thread and type captchas for 5 hours.

That's sad. Around 95% of links around the web are fucked off by DMCA already.
I decided to archive some complete magazine scans yesterday, but it was nothing but pain and suffering to obtain them. And in the end, it didn't even worth is since everything I got was speedscans without any bonus pages and even the cover.
>>
>>113118719

There are plenty of raw sites with working links. Raw-zip and rawcs are my go-to. Otherwise I just scrape Share (I'd use PD but it doesn't have trigger downloads).
>>
>>113118717
I'd be more interested at failing miserably at writing a captcha solver than buying a pass.
>>
>>113118766
I was mostly referring to complete magazine scans. Raw-zip and rawcs are updating their links once new volume is out.
Both PD and Share don't want to work on my ISP, unfortunately.
>>
>>113118832

Well, that one anon has been doing storytime like every other day for the past year, i'd say he got his $10 worth (pass has been on sale a few times)

Unfortunately if you want guaranteed complete scans for a magazine you might have to buy it yourself or ask someone else to scan it

The file's already given me more than enough info. It looks practically the same as the online reader, except they've applied one extra step on top I think. It's more a matter of breaking apart the android app to see how it applies the encryption.

Finally got round to the latest chapter of I Am a Hero; what the fuck is going on with all these strange zombie variants?

I finished SZS last night, took my time with it and somehow avoided spoilers as much as I could. The OPs make so much fucking sense now. There was a lot of fluff in the 30 volumes but it was an overall nice read.

Catching up on Voynich Hotel right now

anyone got something they generally recommend to read? Troll rec or not Most of the things in my backlog are looking every unappealing as of now.

This is probably a good thread to ask:

I am thinking about finishing The World is Mine. The plan is to buy the French volumes, translate them and use jap raws for the scanlation. So far I've obtained raws for all volumes and I am planning on ordering the untranslated in English volumes from Amazon.fr. I am looking for a skilled typesetter who is willing to do all 4 volumes by himself. I am going to do all editing and whatnot, so it's really just placing text in bubbles.

Once you start doing this shit you get to realize that it's not that simple.

It's piss easy for anyone skilled, especially with the help of tools like Typesetter and Photoshop actions. I'd do it myself but it's tedious and time-consuming, and I just can't be arsed. In the end, I will just take my time and release all four volumes for Christmas.

How are you ripping them?

Kindle images in English are pretty reasonable. Although they're a bit variable. Sometimes they have like 99% jpeg, other times like 80 or worse. Older volumes at worst are like this size. They have 1400px wide sometimes. Kobo is about the same. Sometimes slightly better, but very bizarre leveling sometimes, although easily fixed.

It's SoL but it's also way more eventful than Aria and the likes. It is relaxing at times but also has its plenty share of drama and romance even. Gisele is a really likeable MC.

Honestly, just do whatever convenient. Since Mangatraders went down, there's not really a general purpose low-barrier site anymore. Which also managed to repackage a whole lot of manga into volumes over the years.

BakaBT is generally reasonable for completed series, but yeah, ongoing ones just won't be there mostly. I always find that catching up is always better when it's downloaded cause of page lag and unreliable servers.

There's FMD and other online reader rippers, I haven't used any of them in ages and last time I checked FMD was broken for a lot of people.

I'm trying to read Mahou Tsukai no Yome but something about it bugs me.

The premise and characters are interesting, but it's just not enjoyable to read at all. The translation is rather bad, so it's a bit hard to tell, but the way mangaka goes about telling the story isn't working for me at all. The dialogue seems stiff - and it goes beyond just bad translation, since the very flow of conversation seems broken and mechanical - and the pacing leaves a lot to be desired.

Well, at least Chise is extremely cute.

If it was just a bad manga, I wouldn't really care, but it has a lot of potential, that's so far sadly left unrealized.

Same with the other series Ciel Scans translated with 3 chapters out, Hayachine - it's also good, but since the group doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to keeping a steady pace of releases, I didn't want to bring it up until more chapters are out.

Not even remotely the case.
>>
>>113183275
Yes it is. #1 on Mangaupdates in popularity (for a 6 month time span), The Gamer. Before that, it was Tower of God.

#1 on Mangafox currently, Noblesse. Previously, ToG and probably The Gamer.

Do you think I wasn't talking about the internet? Do you think I'm retarded enough to claim it anywhere else?

Also Girls of the Wild has been around number 1 before.

>>113183640
It's even less relevant than mangaupdates, so it doesn't warrant mentioning.

Their english version of Annarasumanara has some of the most retarded localizations and shitty shoops.

Yeah, I should eventually get around to that, but I'd probably need to pair up with a good dedicated group for that since it needs a fair amount of redraws for decent-looking scans.

I don't think webtoons have enough of a presence yet in the West to market physical copies. If they were smart about making readily available free scans of their most popular series, then I could see it happening within 2-3 years, but I doubt it with their poor showing so far.

>>113184053
Some of the ones which just do light-hearted 4koma-esque comedies are pretty funny. I don't think any of them get translated though.

If you hate weebtoons so much why do you love ONE so much?

>>113184374
The key difference is the format. It's still paneled like a normal manga. ONE is just trolltastic in the first place and his paneling and gags are pretty good.

Comic artists with an actual background? How does that compare to westerners anyways?

Itou being a dentist. Taiyou Matsumoto being a pro athlete or something just as absurd. Furuya being an actual artist. Tezuka being a doctor. It's interesting.
>>
>>113184532
It was high school art teacher. That's right.

>>113184484
kebab pls I wish there were more stuff in the popular media about Turkish history.

>>113184532
Yasu Hirasawa (Kingdom) used to be a systems engineer before switching career.
>>
>>113184626
We should blame Tezuka for given everyone the dream of being a mangaka.
>>
>>113184532
One thing is having a background, another is specializing in Turkish history and then drawing fiction inspired to Turkish history like that.
Can you find any parallel? Normally you would expect the art to be amateurish, simplified, stylized etc. Take the other artists you cited.

It is pretty crazy. But then again, that's what happens. Fucking Shigeru Mizuki did it with the wrong hand. As brutal as the profession is, kids still want to be mangaka.

I read I'll give it my all tomorrow recently. That was just way too depressing. It's a odd mentality.

I'm reading through Slam Dunk because I just realized that I've only ever watched the anime, and never read the manga. Also Usagi Drop, I'm curious why it drives everyone into a rage. I know the gist of what happens already, but that doesn't really matter, I feel things regardless of whether or not I know what will happen.

And I'm still clinging onto a faint belief that Spaghetti Western Berserk will be finished someday. It's painful, but better than just giving up and accepting that the story's dead.
>>
>>113193048
>Slam Dunk
I have never watched or read it, now that I think about it. I really should, shouldn't I?
I don't even know how I missed it so many years.
>>
>>113193244
You really should, it's just as incredible as the first time I watched it. I found the pacing good too, I honestly wasn't expecting Kainan at chapter 100. Manga today would probably have fluffed the tournament up and covered this kind of match at like chapter 150 or so.
>>
>>113192543
Yes. Weird German forums and such. DC++, AvaxHome I think. I don't really know much honestly. Kaskus? I think that's scanlation though.

Also reading Slam Dunk atm, just began really. It always bothered me how fucking slow and dragged the anime was but so far for the first 30 chapters it has been a 2 chapter per episode thing so I'm worried the manga is what actually drags and not the anime.

Either way, it's fucking goood.

No such thing. I'm too autistic to drop manga.

>>113195566
He was asking specifially about italian-only scans, though, not secondary translations.

Personally I think 9" and up is where it's at. Do a resize in paint or go to a store and get an idea of how comfy the sizes are.
