This ugh I’d make another thread for our manga and comic
book chats. Atm I’m finally reading Berserk after hearing
so much about it, and the more I’m reading the more
engrossed I am. The art just keeps getting better as well.
I’m buying the books so this I going to end up costing a
fortune. Just finished vol 7.

Reading an interview with Miura I learnt he loves a
particular shojo manga called March Comes in Like a Lion, so
I’m checking that out. I feel the translation might
be lacking but I’m loving the art which is extremely manga
in a great (and cosy) way.

I’m also starting to read Dead Dead De De De Destruction
by the guy who did Pun Pun. Again I reckon the transaltion
may be a bit off at times but hopefully it’ll give me an
idea as to wether I’ll actually want to buy the books.
Link. The art is wonderful (I love the old school
manga at the start) but I’m finding it hard to get into,
hence wondering about the quality of the translation. Maybe
I just wasn’t in the right mood though!

Whatcha been reading?

I just started de de de destruction too, like last night so
am only 15 pages in. I haven't read anything particularly
stellar recently I think. I've read:

Judge - crap
Watanabe - good and sweet
Montage - crap
It's not my fault that i'm not popular - crap
museum - alright
mother sarah - really good
sanctuary - great!

I've got a lot of travelling coming up so i need to find a
couple of epics to entertain me. Berserk might be a good
shout, it's been on my list for ages but always seems to
daunting an undertaking.

Berserk takes a few volumes to settle in but after that
it’s hard to put down. Also so far quality in general
seems to increase with every tankobon or whatever you call
the individual books.

Sanctuary is pretty good yeah, dunno the others you
mentioned.

I came across an oddity called Happy Idiots which was pretty
good.

Happy Idiots hasn’t been translated into English it seems.
I only have volume 1 of theee and it seems the others are
expensive now. LAZY_TITLE I recommend it if you can find
scans (I’d be interested as well) it’s a good (and
different) read.

mother sarah is written by otomo so i recommend that.

I'll have a look around for happy idiots but google brings
up no results for me. That amazon link won't work because of
phobias fucking viglink bollocks, just times out for me.

Sweet. I have a lot of his short stories.

LAZY_TITLE for “happy idiots”

Have you read Dorohedoro? I’m checking it out on that
manga rock site and it’s ace fun!

Didn’t realise the author was a woman. Need to rid myself
of sexist cliches! I have a feeling you might have told me
about this manga before...

Woah dorohedoro looks great! I have the manga rock app so
that's next.

Wish my French wasn't so degeulasse so I could read happy
idiots, looks right up my street

It’s less practical maybe but I prefer using manga rock
online. The app is buggy and I can’t access all the titles
like I can online. Not too sure about this one to be honest.

Yeah are you on iOS? They seem far stricter with what's
allowed on the iOS app but as I have no internet in my
bedroom the app downloads are great for reading in bed/while
travelling on my ipad

Yeah iOS, i couldn’t even get dorohedoro with the app.
Seems more appealing on Android, especially if you don’t
have WiFi in your bedroom (and for travel).

miura is very obviously a rape fetishist but i still kind of
really love berserk

Gosh you know I was thinking the other day that the guy must
have quite a few fetishes (most I’m fine with, some not).
He’s just finished a one shot were a small girl pees on
this huge dude warrior guy to heals his wounds, and often.
She also pees in his mouth and he drinks it to regenerate.
It’s been funny to see a lot of his fans have a meltdown
over that but not his rape fetish.

If you scroll down a bit you can see an example off someone
being extremely offended, and more drawings of this
“healing process”. Here. The art is good.

Just read Baby. It was ok, pretty pointless. Will start
Dorohedoro now I think.

Just a short, alright comic about robot things taking over
the world. The main character has a robot globule thing in
her arm that allows her to fuse with machinery. It's obvious
that it was cancelled and they gave the author two issues to
finish it up.
