>>113670815
It's very slice-o-life, very iyashikei if you're into that sort of thing.

It's also not just about one character or set of characters. After about a volume or so, the story follows someone else, then jumps to some other people too, circling back to the original pair again from time to time. It was weird at first, but I kind of like it -- different for manga to do this kind of thing.
>>
>>113670900
Yeah, Yen Press is doing the whole manga in hardcovers. It's awesome, even if it ups the price a little. I think Kaoru Mori's work deserves it.

I have a confession guys. I've had an urge to read Bleach lately. Not sure if I should act on it or not.

Currently reading Jojo part 6 and enjoying it quite a bit. Part 4 is still my favorite so far.

Then what is up with Kangoku Gakuen? For a while there there were crappy scans that were further in the series than the nice ones by Utopia. Why did the crappy scans just stop?

>>113678493
It's the only option for Otoyomegatari and they're just ~$1.5 more expensive than soft cover of similar sized volume - like Emma in the pic. To me, it's definitely worth the price. Kaoru Mori's masterpiece deserves the best possible edition.

My manga I picked up this month. I always wanted to buy the Rosario+Vampire manga, and I feel like now's the time since the series ended recently. Also, I have never read it before so I'll be going in this series fresh. I plan to buy the rest of R+V very soon. cant wait for that, and for the last volume to be released. I also heard great things about "Seven Deadly Sins" and "Seraph of the End" so I decided to get those as well.

I really don't understand. Author is the one who created the character, not some toy company. Buy the manga.

I don't think buying a manga that was licensed would help more than buying figures.
And if I wanted to support them I'd just import the manga directly from nipland.

But you are supporting the people that paid the one-off license cost, not the mangaka.

Depends, if the manga is out of print the price can grow. I had to pay a bigger price for certain Tenjou Tenge and Gantz volumes.
But 80 euros for 13 oop volumes seems about right. Too bad I'm poor.

>>113680180
Japanese products usually have more of the price going to the publisher while US products have a lot of the price going to retailers. It's just the way distribution works in Japan and the US.
But Japanese publishers are famous for embezzling and treating their employees worse than garbage so you probably aren't actually supporting mangaka no matter which version you buy.

I recently bought my first mango aswell. I used to read it on my tablet, but I just felt like buying something for once.
Now reading something on my tablet just doesn't feel right anymore. People might argue it's better because the tablet offers light, but it's not the same for me. Maybe I'm just being pretentious, but I don't really care.

>>113681052
I know that they have some questionable translations in Monster Musume. They changed Polt's name to Port and in D-Frag they translate "senpai" as "sempai". So pasically from what I've seen the worst they have done is take a stance on the age old R vs L and Sen vs Sem in Japanese translation

That and I don't actually know what being Tokyopop-tier means. They were long defunct when I started buying manga

The senpai/sempai thing bothers me, but it's not wrong, just against popular view. What really irritates me is their Dance in the Vampire Bund releases, where they leave stuff like Hime-sama or Kaichou untranslated with a tl note for no reason.

Viz is rereleasing the F/SN manga digitally. They're already up to volume 8, so you'll need to get it from them for anything after Tokyopop went under. Not sure if it's a new translation or not, though.

>>113684358
They have a lot of spotty or half-assed translations. Matt Thorn explained it on his blog a bit, it was something like them using a lot of desperate college students with moderate understanding of Japanese and paying them half of what a real translator would receive for their work. Some series like Battle Royale have deliberate changes that just screw with the storytelling and mood.
>>

You should check out Animal Land by Makoto Raiku. It's a wonderful series for kids to read.

and also no longer than 15 volumes, but Kodansha USA is taking forever to bring them over.

Not that guy but no one gives a fuck, really. Saying you occasionally visit le reddit does not automatically make you a le meme spouting faggot in real life. You may say for example you don't like /r/anime because they're spoonfeeding much more and have "shit taste", but I bet their taste does not even differ that much from /a/s taste in general, hell look at all those SAO or KLK threads.

Yeah I don't like the voting system neither and the community often seems to be younger or less mature because people are more welcoming there. However, if you have a good picture of someone, this should not be influenced because he shares different interests.

Most likely no one even cares that I write this and you shouldn't because it just doesn't matter. Just don't spout this muh secret club crap. Don't reply to this, it's not worth it.

Not that anon, but here in Indonesia the manga volumes are really that thin. Same amount of content, just thinner (and worse) paper, I think.
