I almost want to read it on a tablet or something so I can hold it close to myself instead of hunching over at my desk. I've never had the problem before, so maybe they're just shitty scans.

There have been numerous arguments for this. Previously I might have contested that it would be full of WSJ crap and would do very little to help the problem, but honestly I don't think that's the biggest issue.

My new understanding would be that it would divide /a/, and if the last week has given any kind of insight, it was that /a/ is surprisingly resolute. The unfortunate offshoot known as /jp/ gives me question to wonder what the long term effects of such a divide would give and no doubt moot knew this too.
>>
>>120358968
I don't like it. A board split worked out for /vg/ because general threads made up for a huge bulk of /v/. I don't think manga readers number anywhere near the rest of the population on /a/ proportionally, killing a lot of discussion.
>>
>>120359143
I don't see how it could divide /a/. It's not like people on the whole come to /a/ for the manga threads. Instead of the 2-3 unique manga threads on /a/ at most, including one seldom seen general type thread like this one, we could have a board where you don't worry about the threads getting pruned. Persistent threads would make discussion of less popular works happen more often. I think /lit/ is the best example of what we would expect, except since it's not "real" literature you wouldn't have the psuedo intellectual shitposters.

There could be a us vs them mentality but really, people already get butthurt over anime on faggots and anime only fans don't care for still pornography drawings anyway, nothing new there.
>>
>>120359177
>I don't think manga readers number anywhere near the rest of the population on /a/ proportionally
If any unrepresentative and misleading polls are to mean anything, nearly half of /a/ reads some manga or only read manga. Sure the other half reads basically nothing, but the number of mangafags isn't small.
>>
>>120359240
Lots of mangafags come to /a/ entirely for manga threads. I do. Because there isn't anywhere to go. It's even worse than it is for anime. I stopped watching anime years ago, like lots of people I've talked to here.
>>
>>120359304
So surely it would be better to have a board dedicated to it? You post a thread about a particular lesser known manga, you MIGHT post at a time when a handful of people have read it, you might get a couple of replies before it dies out. That's it.

You post it on a manga board and the thread doesn't get pruned for days, peoplle use the catalog on smaller boards so you wind up with a thread that won't necessarily be quick replies, but still is a persistent discussion. It's not like you are then banned from /a/ either, all splitting the boards would do is stop manga threads from being swamped.

I actually emailed moot about this a few weeks back and no response, I figure maybe this was considered in the past and decided against and has never been brought up again.
>>
>>120359250
>>120359304
Just look at the catalog. The vast majority of threads concern anime. Manga just isn't as popular around here as anime is, which is disappointing to me because outstanding manga are far more common than outstanding anime.

>>
>>120359381
It's been brought up lots of times and not only did moot disagree, so did most of /a/.

Sure, the prospect is nice, to find people who are interested in the same series, but that's not why I like to post on /a/. I'd rather have one live conversation with one person than a snail-pace conversation with a dozen - because you may as well trade it with a forum.

>>120359390
Of which, lots of them are also manga. If you actually went and counted, it's not that bad - even the actual threads specifically for manga, but the series that are focused on are usually widely popular series.
>>
>>120359448
In this scenario, the manga board would be the offshoot. Is /vr/ flourishing or floundering?

A decent number of threads may be tangentially related to manga, but still, the great majority of discussion that happens on this board is about anime.

Having a thread about an anime series that has a manga adaptation does not a manga discussion make.

I was going to say I went through my first re-read of Angel Sanctuary since it's initial release in my country. Still fine for a shoujo, even if the end is a complete clusterfuck, and it can't stop from going into full-shoujo retarded mode sometimes.
But still, nice read, even if you aren't into shoujo/bishonen shit.

>Ripping out manga is literally ripping out the heart of lots of series
And that is what happens a lot of the time. Anime is simply the more popular medium here. Even if a series begins with a manga that is adapted into an anime, it's quite often that the adaptation is discussed more often than the original. It's sad that a lot of people miss out. The simple truth is that we're in the minority - I think a split would only slow any existing manga discussion that there is even further.

Pic related. Mizuki is a bloody genius.

Also read Ginga Patrol Jaco by Toriyama. Very nice read. Very good light comedy, some of the jokes were perfect. I really liked how it wasn't too dependent on action or jokes but mostly on telling the short story. The only thing I could say against this is that the connection to Dragon Ball story is a bit unnecessary and a bit forceful at times. The story could flow flawlessly even without it.

if that person was on /a/ and /ma/ you are still going to have that one on one discussion same as if it had been in a manga thread on /a/, that doesn't change. the snail pace is just going to be because the thread lives so much longer and people browsing at diferent times can chip in. if you made a thread on /a/ about it instead all you get is the lucky discussion with a handful of people for a short time and that's the end of it.

I would be most worried that these people would be told to go to their respective boards. Look at how many people get pissed off at 'spoilers' because they didn't read the manga a decade ago. I think you underestimate how many people would simply not visit /a/ anymore if there was a split.

People who don't go out of their way to seek manga discussion get exposed to it on /a/. They take part out of curiosity or some other interest, and they may latch on.

Splitting manga off removes that entirely. /a/ is one of the biggest boards on this site. Have you ever ventured to a smaller board, where posts happen once an hour later at night? It's just not fun.

What ever happened to Kurokami (Black God)? It is available around up to chapter 109 or something, but that's it. A few sites reference it going on for another 50 or so chapters and concluding. Did it just get dropped by translators or something? I can find so little info on it people seem to just forget it existed.

Same goes for pic related which incidentally is my favourite lewd manga of all time, holy shit. It's gets up to ch 18 or something and that's it, whereas I've found references to it continuing but no actual material.
>>
>>120360048
Last release is ch 111 like 3 weeks ago.
>>
>>120360048
I think scanlators forgot about it. There's probably a reason for people forgetting, most people I've seen just wanted to see the end of it more than actually wanting to read more.
>>
>>120359860
Well, the characters are usually fine and pretty well detailed, but most of time we get Kubo-level of backgrounds, and everything is arranged in a huge mess on the page. Double page spreads are gorgeous though.
The manga is actually pretty ancient now, I'm sure it has aged quite a bit
>>
>>120360025
That's a good point, but I think that's overstating the few manga threads on /a/ recruiting new fans. A manga board wouldn't suddenly mean people are banned for discussing manga. It would be fine to run it exactly like it is - the majority of threads on /a/ are about anime that people are watching, often scattered throughout the threads are discussions on the source manga. The discussions would still be fine there just discussing a book a movie is based on in a /tv/ thread. The difference is there is a dedicated home for that stuff if you wanted to have a more indepth discussion.

Are you moot btw

I feel like you are moot, pls make a manga board before you leave forever. also email me back asshole.

I actually was in Japan and bought a shit ton of manga. This one was at the top of my list. I don't know where the scanlations are now, but let me tell you that in it's entirety, volume 2 completely melted my heart. I didn't think it'd be able to, and feared that it might just be more of volume 1 (which would still be great, just a tad repetitive) but holy shit does volume 2 deliver.

Other than that I bought like over 100 volumes of manga in total. Can't wait till work slows down and I can read it. Only thing I couldn't find that I wanted was the entire Getter Robo saga.

She's definitely grown more honest/accepting of romantic things over time - you can see the progression happening chapter to chapter. I eat that shit up.

This last chapter upped the ante on sexual tension, which was near nonexistent before. Surprising but I hope it keeps going this way.

WHY IS NOBODY READING OVERLORD

I think it's going to be a massive hit, or it crashes hard. The Light Novel is really promising, and it's a different take that I've never seen before.

I'm also reading Kingdom (who doesn't), The Arm's Peddler, and whatever new manga that just got scanned and I decided to start reading.

But the those above are my top three. I really want to see more overlord.

Let's put it this way. The MC of overlord is a lich king. Not a human, but a full on spooki skeleton that can raise dead and specializes in magic.

>>
>>120362083
I'm mentioning it because it is already slated to receive an anime, on top of the manga. There might not be much out there, but I want people to know about it, add it to their reading list, you know? I've got over 100 titles but I'll add on more if I think it's promising. Hell I'll read it if it as long as it's seinen. Romance +seinen is a good combo, or sci-fi+seinen (or all three and you get Planetes). Fantasy - seinen is good too. I usually stay away from comedy since I am actually trying to look for a good plot.

They really liked the Light Novel, for a good reason. Yes, I wish other manga got an anime adaptation but this one managed to get it. It's seinen (supposed to be non-harem, only two girls like him) and it's a story that I haven't seen before, similar to the arm's peddler.

I wonder if one day we could read scanlations of Jump manga not done on topazed to death raws. No one's even bothering to wait for tank to come out and do it properly. Anyone else not reading any Jump manga and/or weekly series because scans end up looking like complete shit without any screentone?
>>
>>120362472
I have read the LN. If you have ever played an mmorpg for a while, you would know this feeling, otherwise it might miss you.

Imagine you have been at the helm of a clan you formed years ago in a game called yssangrdil. You racked up feats, you conquered clans, and you raided more dungeons than any other clan could say. Even when 5 of the top 20 guilds came to destroy your home, they could not get past your guardians.

But alas, that is no longer true. your clanmates, your brothers in arms are now long gone. It is rare that you see one online in any given week, and many have been AWOL for months and years with jobs in the real world, if not given up the game for good.

Now, it is the last day of yssangdril, and you wish to watch the clock at the bottom of your labryinth where your clan calls home. Even though it is widely know across the world that the game is ending, only two people logged on. Even worse, one person left an hour before since he 'didn't feel like watching the end'. It is truly you, alone, in a hall of past relics; a hall of former glory. And as you watch the clock tick down you wonder if it was worth it.

However, the clock keeps going, past midnight. And this is where the story starts. The MC starts to travel the world in search to see if he can find ex guildmates or ex players in a world that knows nothing about him. He also is very strong. His companions are people that used to be programmed NPCs, but now act real.

I went way too deep into that, but I loved the idea. I formed a CW guild with a couple of other people back in 2005. We slowly turned into a massive guild that would win almost all battles, but after the wildy updates many of them left. I haven't seen a single one of them. I am now the third rank on a clan in RS3 with over 300 people but I mostly solo dg since doing anything else reminds me of what used to have been.

On /a/ if there is a new chapter of something i'm reading or in these rare manga threads.

The whole deal with the "Please give us a manga board even if we know it probably wouldn't work very well" is because there is literally not a single decent place to discuss manga (and anime, actually) out of here.

I tried to take a look at /r/Manga, and while I have to admit it's much better than the anime counterpart (not like that's much of an accomplishment), it's still lightyears worse than here - when there is some manga discussion i mean.
The only thing it have over /a/ is that it's a separate thing only for manga.

Otherwise you might try your luck with "national" websites, but that doesn't really count.
>>
>>120363502
and this is a great example as to why I left /a/
you people sometimes take things way too seriously. It used to be that no one really gave a fuck other than that we'd hate on the big three, but now you people just call everyone out.
>>120363434

I finally finished it.
That was the most insidiously depressing manga I've ever read. Nobody was ever entirely right, nobody was ever entirely wrong, and nobody got a happy ending. Nothing good ever happened. Just full-out fucking misery all the way through.
>>
>>120363261
>Do you wait for the (kind of rare) threads on /a/?

yes saddly, believe it or not but the a great part of manga readers are actually underage reddit/tumblr-tier posters, you can see that when you read the posts in mangaupdates or mangafox and they are either SJWs, edgelords or fedoras of the highest levels.

For some reason neckbeards do read the obscure stuff but still consume more anime than manga.

I've become so fed up with shitty no-personality spineless male MCs that I've stopped picking up most romance themed stories. The premise might be great, the girls might be super cute, but as soon as I see the 'average every-day guy' with his generic MC haircut, vacant nice-guy smile, white shirt and black pants I just have to drop it. I don't even give them a chance anymore.

The last manga I read was Yuri Danshi since anon was kind enough to translate a couple of chapters.

I ended up on the dynasty reader as a result and I'm going through All Hail Empress, although it's a manhua. The main girl is great.

>>120363261
If I translate it, I dump it on /a/ and discuss it here. Manga reader sites are fucking toxic, and I've never touched any community outside of /a/ for discussing my weeb shit. If I know someone who's read it, I'll talk to them. If I don't know anyone who's read it, or who might enjoy reading it and it never gets threads on /a/, then I just never discuss it.

>>120363710
You'd think they'd like manga more because it had a variety of lgbt titles from the past couple decades, not to mention mountains of fujoshit doujinshi but I guess they're more interested in Avengers porn and lesbian multiracial poc fetish comics

It's probably better this way.

>>120363261
Only these threads or one page threads. It used to be a little better when people were able to have storytime threads but the timer that was added to prevent spam/general threads killed a lot of interest in making them, since it takes hours just to post one volume.

Actually it's by the people doing it more than anything. If you have a Japanese native speaker translating something into English and their English isn't great, you get really literal sounding "awkward" translations. If they're an English native who's moon isn't great, it'll usually read well but isn't always accurate. I imagine French is the same way.

Reading Re:Marina

and though I like other series other "cute bride" series like Oku-san and Sachiare the MC of this series is pissing me off every chapter. The wife tries to do everything for him and he treats her like dirt. This latest chapter is sort of understandable because he's equating his eventual death with his father but the fact he lashes out on her despite confirming her own loss is a dick-move.

No. I'm saying that, other than Shonen Jump manga (most of which is shit), there's very few ones that reach 350 chapters. So even if the manga IS known to be good, like Berserk and Vagabond, just thinking of starting it feels like a chore.

But I'll get to it eventually.

More like thousands and thousands since the '90s, and currently reading at least 20 ongoing ones religiously every month. But nice projection.

I was interested in broadening my horizon and read more kinds of comics(american comics, fumetti, BD, etc). Is /manga/ interested in these other mediums? What are you favourites?

I read manhwas and one (Feng Shen Ji of course) manhua. /a/ hates manhwas, and after reading more of them i actually do agree that most of them (as in webcomics) are actually pretty mediocre, but others are fairly cool. But I think nowadays reading them is not that uncommon.

It's completely translated, a mix of scanlations and official scans.
>>
>>120372925
You start wherever looks interesting, there's no real wrong way to do it. I started with capes and expanded to other stuff as I got acquainted with the medium.

I really liked Kubera for setting, Magician as a fantasy the breaker and Distant Sky.

well, disregarding those who just had some drama at one point.

>kanpeki no kanojo

the first chapters deceive you somewhat because its filled with unnecessary cliché misunderstandings but not only for comic relief moments but actual drama and it get worse as soon as the dyke is introduced who not only allways cockblock the MC but also has some pretty angsty moments. So overall little healing and more rage.

>Ran to Haiiro no Sekai

this one has an shoujo tier asshole character who is even an violent cunt but it was ok because he didn´t have much screentime anyway but the manga starts to concentrate too much on him, to the point where he gets mixed up with the phantasy stuff and is kinda like the final boss of the last arc, the arc by itself was great but overall he has been nothing but an annoying cunt and when he is finally gone, the manga ends a few chapters later, it was great before his arc though.

>bocchi na bokura no renai jijou

it would´ve been great if only the MC wasn´t such an idiot and the other male characters weren´t such a arrogant cunts, the female lead falling in love with the MC came really out of nowhere.

Isn't Barakamon (among others) scanlation dead because "We got a US release so who give a fuck anymore"?

Because that's the point, how the localization is doing is marginal, it being up to 2 volumes rather than 1 is irrilevant.

I need to get the tankoubon one of these days. I don't even remember how it ended.

I really feel like Samura writes short stories way better than long ones. Mugenin just got really draggy and kinda boring halfway through, but all his shorts have been great.

It really sucks his stuff doesn't get more attention from scanlators. I disagree with you, anon, about BotI dragging; I loved it throughout and though it built and built on itself.

I´d say chocotto sister, koe de oshigoto, Subete ni Iya Girl and strawberry shake sweet deserve to be on the list the most. Koi Neko could be as well, it is more or less as interesting as Kashiwagi-san. Kahe Tantei Bu is from the guy who did Nagasarete Airantou, its mostly girls SoL but has some romance. Peshi is a really comfy comedy-manga.

Can you guys recommend me manga where the characters start out as a weak little shit and gets stronger over time.
Seinen manga preferred over shounen.
Also, I like the idea of things not being left over to "luck" too much. That everything has an explanation and that the characters don't get stronger of powerup's out of fucking nowhere.
Other then that, depressing mangas are also okay. Like Eden: It's an endless world or bokurano

Does it have to be a battle manga?
Suicide Island protagonist starts out as one of many suicidal weakling, but becomes the only hunter on the island adept with a bow and survival techniques.

The title is Suicide Island but the theme is more of survival and finding reasons to live on. Also quite a bit of Lord of the Fly element with society forming and inevitable human conflicts.

I've caught up with Berserk anon, I know this pain you speak of, not to mention it's extremely addictive, never thought a manga about acting would be this great.

>>120382100

Berserk is still just 26 years old, and while slow, the author is still in good shape.

Glass mask is 40 years and on going. The likelihood of the author dying before the manga finish is infinitely higher.

Yeah, the alternatives are either cancerous or dead slow. There's IRC but it requires a different level of engagement.

There are other slow boards on 4chan, so I don't see why an /ma/ would be a bad thing.

People would post about manga when relevant in anime threads on /a/ and viceversa on /ma/.

People giving too much of a shit over EVERYTHING MUST BE CATEGORIZED CORRECTLY is what ruined 4chan

It killed OC, it encourages general proliferation, and it only enables autistic spergs who have nothing better to do all day than SORTING THE INTERNET

I'm glad this thread exists! I wanted to talk about this but I don't think a thread would survive.

4koma avoiding drawing backgrounds is slowly driving me crazy. It's like, emotions are expressed so refinely in how the blankness is sued. Dots, action lines, but NEVER any background. I'm going insane. It's talking heads! It's like the School Days visual novel where it's just talking heads. There's no body shots cuz there's no room for it! Ohh man it's crazy. I can't stand 4komas.
>>
>>120402512
>cuz
You may want to cut the exclamation marks if you don't want to look like an idiot.

Not drawing backgrounds is generally an indicator of quality. Most 4koma are lazy, but a number of them aren't.
>>
>>120402659
I type as a stream of consciousness, forgive me for being raised in the south. Are you saying not drawing a background is indicative of low quality? I wouldn't be surprised. Though I wonder how a high quality 4koma would be drawn...
>>
>>120402768
It's for future reference.

Yes, generally. I mean look at Seitokai Yakuindomo for instance. They at least make an effort most of the time. There are also half 4koma, half normal series like Kyoukai Senjou no Rinbo or Sekai Maou. While it's not always true, lack of backgrounds is a common precursor for normal manga at least. Some of the B-list titles, or worse, that no one really bothers to translate have like one tone backgrounds or none at all.
>>
>>120403043
Seitokai is a high quality 4koma? Color me surprised, the anime didn't give that vibe off at all. I'll give those titles a shot to see what I'm missing, anything to get away from talking heads.
>>
>>120403223
>anything to get away from talking heads
Why not just read things other than 4koma?
>>
>>120403223
I wouldn't say high quality, but it's not something you really notice.
>>
>>120403277
I like having each page have roughly the same number of panels and dialogue. It's easier to gauge my progress. Normal manga often have pages like >>120400830 and >>120394610 that don't have nearly as much dialogue so it's harder to track how much I've read.
