Not sure if this counts but the Shogun Assassin comic series. I stumbled across the first one when I was a kid. Unfortunately at the time they were hard to come by since no one really knew much about them. When I got older, I was able to find them online and ordered the whole collection. In fact, I actually ordered two sets. One that I could preserve and another that I could actually open and read without worrying about damaging them.

Kinetsu no Yaiba

 

I decided yo try reading a volume of this one to know what is the hype about. Ended up Binge-reading it. I actually enjoyed reading it It has some good moments but it felt that it was a bit short(?), sure 205 and 4 years of publication is noy short but for a Shounen manga like this, it felt it just finished quickly. Like, overall Zenitsu only had 3 major fights and the 2 fights was soo early in the series then when third happened, he become like an over-leveled character.

 

Anyway, I am still looking forward to the adaptation of the Train Arc...

Akame ga Kill! (Finished)

9781975300449.JPG?auto=format&w=300&dpr=

Enjoyment level 10

The ruthless Minister Honest exploits the ignorance of a new young Emperor and deviously rules the country from the shadows with twisted morals and no regard for human life. As a result of this, an epidemic of crime and corruption has spread throughout the country's capital city, and a state of society ensues where the privileged have absolute domination over the lesser.

However, there exists an organization to combat this rife abuse of power: Night Raid, a secret division of the oppositionary Revolutionary Army. It is composed of a small team of ruthless assassins who murder all those who partake in or turn a blind eye to the Empire's outrageous wrongdoings.

Tatsumi is a naïve, sword-wielding young man on a journey to save his impoverished village. Soon, he witnesses the bloody horrors and cruelty of the capital firsthand. Overcome with hatred, Tatsumi is swayed by Night Raid's profound cause and decides to join them, embarking on a painful and dangerous mission to exact revenge on Minister Honest. Tatsumi gains many invaluable experiences as he unravels the ethics of conflicting ideologies, life and death, all while working toward the restoration of a humane world.

 

Finally went and read the last 5 volumes. I liked those short crossover stories at the end of each volume (of course the last volume don't have one).

Only time I was able to more or less Urami Koi, Koi, Urami Koi. in a physical manga translated to english well until one of those publishers publish it, until then I read the fan-translated elsewhere like I do with most manga not translated to english and/or has physical volume/s.

 

Still reading the manga I downloaded from Manga Rock before it shut down, still I'm slow with manga and even slower with light novels then I'm with anime and games 9AHhkZb.gif

Also need to update my manga list soon but with some of the manga I read not being on myanimelist made me being unmotivated to update it.

Bocchan to Maid (Fin./Update in Limbo)

 

It's more of a manhwa (Korean manga). A slice of life/"romance" manga that emphasises the daily lives of the maid Katie and the tsundere Johann, as the former herself attempts to get along with the latter. It's still in Limbo, which is Chapter 43, as I'm uncertain when they'll translate the new chapter. Must-read, if you are into the slice of life genre, which I loved.

Strange Journey another report. Pretty good manga for a SMT adaptation but don't expect too much from the story.

Due to the S2 situation... I started reading The Promised Neverland manga. I don't know what the hell else could have been changed, so I'm playing it safe and reading it from the beginning.

I'm rereading Bleach. I know it's a bit normie but I haven't read it in years. Post-Aizen it's a disaster but prior to the Fullbringer arc it was a great series

Oh I didn't know this is a thread!

Anyway, I have been recently reading Record of Ragnarok or Valkyrie of the End. Basically a huge Tournament Arc with mythological gods vs history's most famous human combatants.

While nonsensical, it's oddly well written. Recommended if you wish to see Zeus getting whomped in the face, and not by Kratos xD

Chainsaw Man vol. 1-4 (chapters 1-35)

 

Finished volume 4 and just started reading 5. It's been really good so far. All killer no filler, feels like not a single page is wasted. Will need to buy vol. 7-8 soon.

 

I like the worldbuilding, I like the characters (I even drew a fan art of Power, and I want to draw more). The art style is pretty cool too, even though it's not the most detailed or flawless. Each chapter has some great looking panels. The panel work is good. The comedy bits are funny. I also like that Tatsuki Fijimoto doesn't shy away from incuding a lot of bloody and violent scenes as well as horror elements. 

 

The main character Denji is a bit different from a usual shonen hero. He doesn't have a strong moral compass because he's been around shitty people all his life. He doesn't have a big goal in life because he's been only thinking about how to survive since childhood. Once he gets demonic abilities and fixes his problems, he has trouble figuring out what to do next in life. I'm interested to see where his story goes.

 

I also want to mention how well Fujimoto tackles serious themes in his story. There is a subtle commentary on gun culture. It's portrayed in a unique way. What if you could compile years worth of firearm tragedies into a single event? What if the horrors of gun violence were represented as a single character? He puts these thoughts in your head without lecturing about anything. There's also commentary on the idea of "necessary evil", and the more broad and familiar themes like "what it means to be human".

 

Some spoilers for people who haven't read past the first volume:

 

Spoiler

I've been semi-spoiled about Makima. I saw some pages from late in the manga. I don't know if it made me pay attention to what she says and does more, but I noticed a lot of hints even from early on. 

 

Before you even know how this fictional world works, you learn that Makima has an ability to sense "devils". Then she implies she wouldn't hesitate to kill Denji if he escapes the bureau. Then she manipulates both Denji and Aki by saying stuff like "I like guys like you" and "I trust you more than anyone". Then she doesn't get drunk from tons of beer. And then during the attack on the hunters you get some big reveals. There's still a mystery behind her ultimate goal and the extent of her abilities. I like how Fujimoto reveals more stuff about her gradually to feed your curiosity.
