January 2017 Recommendation: Hanada Shounen-shi
Supernatural dramedy | 4 volumes, Completed work, Licensed but not in English
A little bumpkin kid by the name of Hanada Ichiro gets into all kinds of mischief until things take a turn for the nasty. Trying to escape the wrath of his enraged mother, he gets in an accident, resulting in nine stitches on the back of his head, and one little side-effect: a knack for the supernatural. Young Ichiro is now able to communicate with ghosts, who just can't get off his back with all kinds of requests.striferser: i've read this to completetion around 1999, one of the best manga i've ever read.
Simple rules to follow so we can discuss our favorite manga easily:
1. Sort of guide to how you should post.
In bold, put the name of the series as the first line in your post. Then you can go ahead and discuss whatever is on your mind without tags, okay? Make sure there is a space between the bolded name of the series and your text. Here's an example:2. Regarding manga scanlations.
Hunter X Hunter 505
It rules and I don't know why!
3. Regarding spoilers in this thread.So to repeat, DO NOT link to any manga scanlations websites or ask where to read manga.

This thread is for the discussion of manga, not for the exchange and distribution of illegal material. Don't ask, don't tell. Future offenses will result in normal moderation consequences. Do not reply to this message, just move along. If you have a question, PM me.
If you post a panel or page, there should be no logo of any site on it.
We will discuss all the manga in one topic with no tags. If you don't want to be spoiled by the chapter as soon as the translation is out, do not come in here. Also, since we are not talking about the anime, you can mention new episodes without tags either since they are always behind or are filler. You should know well enough not to come in here not wanting to be spoiled. Please bold the header of your post as shown in rule 1 to help other posters avoid spoilers.4. I don't know what manga to read. Can you guys help?
If you understand the content of the chapter you wish to discuss has significant spoilers for the series and wish to discuss without spoiler tags, and the chapter is a fresh (within 1 day) release, please add some additional detail to the bolded chapter title to indicate as such. Example:
Exercise good judgement about spoilers.
Prison School 666 SUPER SPOILERS
I don't know what I could possibly spoil.
Again, no spoiler tags for text needed, that is the benefit of coming here.
Leaks do not count as translation or scans. If a translation has not been released yet, spoiler tag any leaks and discussion of the chapter. Leaks should be sourced (a name/location at least, if a link is not possible).
Regarding image spoilers: "Please do not embed major spoiler images, ever."
Obviously the best way is to ask in the thread so we can give you recommendations that fit your taste better, but if you don't want to do then there are two excellent threads to check out for a list of good manga. Some good advice: don't ask for recommendations late Tuesday and Wednesday.5. Reading manga on tablets.
If you are a shounenhead and want your manga filled with hot blooded action then read cosmicblizzard's nifty thread of awesome battle manga.
If you prefer seinen manga or non-mainstream manga then read flawfuls thread of awesome lesser known manga.
If you want fluffy romance manga, NeoSoma has a chart of sweet and/or fluffy romance manga from /a/.
Other possibilities collected from this thread and link to a list of recommendations/impressions will be found in the second post below.
If you are looking for manga-reading tech on tablets, Jintor suggests Mango and suko_32 has more details on his tablet setup.
