Forums - General Discussion - The Official Manga Discussion Thread

So, I've been reading a ton of manga since I've been on vacation (reading on my phone). In the past week or so, I've finished Unbalance x Unbalance (really liked), Mx0 (great but bad ending), Love Hina (also good), Mahoutsukai to Deshi no Futekisetsu (started out fantastic, but kinda slipped in the end), and a few oneshots.

I'm also keeping up with my weeklys. Kimi no Iru Machi, Good Ending, It's not my Fault I'm not Popular!!, and Uchuu Kyoudai.

Most recently I started Medaka Box and Yumeiro Choice (I stopped this one due to the fact that I can't really read it around family and stuff).

There is the high possibility that Bleach will simply stop airing once the current arc is over. Spooky

Haven't read the spoiler chapters yet (Weekly Jump doesn't hit until Mondays here. I don't catch the stuff stolen on the internet), but as for last week...

One Piece: Oda consistently manages to top himself in weirdness. Freezeflame island (though Mario Galaxy did that first :P), with giant toddlers and a deconstructible samurai...
Naruto: I'm curious to see if Karin is still genuinely loyal to Sasuke. She'll become as stupid as Sakura and Naruto if she is, because he fucking tried to kill her.
Bleach: Why do all of Kubo's villains end up looking the same?



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Bleach will be finished airing in just a bit. There are articles all over the net by now.

I am aware, although i brought up the counterargument in the anime thread, bringing up the likelihood that it is merely on hiatus and not done permanently, simply to avoid having to go into fillers again while they wait for the last arc to get done on the manga side.

Also that episode 367 has been listed for an April 3rd airing on TV Osaka (owned by the same company as TV Tokyo), though that could be a fluke of some sort.

The only definitive matter is that the timeslot is getting shuffled around.

I'm sorta scared for Hunter X Hunter since the art the last two chapters have been very weak and I know that Togashi has been sick for a bit. I really hope he doesn't go on hiatus again and if he does hopefully it's a short one unlike all his others...



Former something....

Oh, just because it's done airing doesn't mean it'll be off-air permantently.



Dead Sasakibe is dead

Not quite sure what to make of it. Perhaps Kubo is testing the waters by cavalierly killing a character who was easily the least developed of all the Captains + Lieutenants and seeing what the response is to see if other killings might be acceptable

I've noticed that page-images on Mangareader seem to have been blocked in Japan. A friend of mine here notified me that he's having trouble getting the pages to display on Mangareader over here, and then i tried it and found the same problem, but then i used a US Proxy Server and they popped right up.

Try using batoto or mangafox. Those are my preferences.

Not really a problem for me, being in Japan i can simply buy them, and trying to read them helps my Japanese, while chapter summaries fill in any gaps i may have.

When my friend informed me, i was momentarily afraid that the site was on the verge of a takedown, and so pondered the possibility of region-blocking on their part, because it's not the first time i've had anime fansites suddenly seem oddly broken on me over here.
