What Manga/Graphic Novels/Comics....

Post by Black Ridge » Mon Jan 16, 2012 9:56 am

......are you currently reading?

Neon Gensis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project - Really enjoying this. Just about to finish Volume.1. Its basically a story of the 3 main characters (Shinji, Asuka & Rei) and how their life would have been had they met under slightly different circumstances.

Naruto - This has been an ongoing thing for about 7years now. I have up to Volume.52 and will be buying 53 & 54 soon. Was one of the first mangas i got into when i was 16. Much better than the anime IMO.

Street Fighter ALPHA & Street Fighter III Ryu Final - Both nice little short reads (2 volumes each). Would recommend to SF fans.

The World God Only Knows. I'm not really a manga person, but there's so many twists, turns, references, and moments of just plain hilarity that I find it impossible to break away from.

Also Nichijou, because it's crazy.

I have Initial D up to vol.20 but I read them alongside watching the anime and I only have up to Battle 11 at the minute.

Really need to get searching for the next couple of DVD's.

Is this the one where the guy becomes contracted by the devil who makes weird food and he has to go and talk to girls to save the world?
If it is, then you're in for a wild ride (I watched the anime).

The only manga I have with me is Chobits. I should finish it.

I know, I've watched the anime and read all released chapters so far. The anime doesn't even get into the main story, the manga is ten times as good (and that's hard to imagine with TWGOK).

There's a main story? Need to get a hold of that.

I got some comics yesterday and there was a monkey king manga type book in with them, I don't remember ordering it but then I don't remember ordering half of the stuff I get.

I have some Blade of the Immortal and an older Gon book but that's it nowadays. I use to have loads, including the full Akira set, but sold it years ago. Wouldn't mind getting back into it sometime soon.

Hayate The Combat Butler - Up to Vol. 12 on this, it's good fun although some of the characters grate. One of the better comedy manga I've read.

Recently finished Castlevania: Curse of Darkness manga. Its only 2 volumes long since the series apparently got axed.
Its nothing too special.

Hideshi Hino's Lullabies From Hell and The Red Snake.

Not the best translation-wise, but the stories are great, like babies that eat people and old women that turn into chickens, and a girl who pleasures herself by pouring insects all over herself - that sort of thing.

I've always been a fan of Akira but have never read the Manga so finally bought then late last year and yesterday sat down intending to read a few chapters of the 1st collection but instead read the entire thing in one sitting. Tis very good indeed!
