Welcome to Mangaf. We're here to discuss manga-related things. Please read the rules regarding spoilers below.

July 2017 Recommendation: Eternal Sabbath

Sci Fi drama thriller | 8 volumes, Completed work, Licensed in English
Ryousuke Akiba calls himself ES, a code name taken from a mysterious scientific experiment. Ryousuke will live to be at least two centuries old and possesses strange mental powers: He can enter people’s minds, discover their darkest secrets, even rearrange their memories so that complete strangers will treat him like family. Ryousuke acts not out of malice but for survival–wandering Tokyo for reasons known only to him. No one recognizes him for what he is...until Dr. Mine Kujyou, a determined researcher, meets someone who challenges everything she knows about science–ES, possessor of the Eternal Sabbath gene. But is he the only one? (source)
Numb: The very start was the strong point and the ending really gets you unaware.

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:

Hunter X Hunter 505

It rules and I don't know why!

2. Regarding manga scanlations.

Originally Posted by duckroll

This is the last time I am ever going to say this. I believe I have mentioned this before. Do not ever, ever direct link to illegal piracy shit. This includes manga releases, manga scanlations, sites and apps which provide such access, etc. STOP DOING IT. 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.

So to repeat, DO NOT link to any manga scanlations websites or ask where to read manga.

If you post a panel or page, there should be no logo of any site on it.
3. Regarding spoilers in this thread.
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.

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:

Prison School 666 SUPER SPOILERS

I don't know what I could possibly spoil.

Exercise good judgement about spoilers.

Again, no spoiler tags for text needed, that is the benefit of coming here.

Caveats:
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."
4. I don't know what manga to read. Can you guys help?
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.

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.
5. Reading manga on tablets.
If you are looking for manga-reading tech on tablets, Jintor suggests Mango and suko_32 has more details on his tablet setup.

WARNING: There may be spoilers in some of these recs (rec), reviews (rev), impressions (imp). If you want to avoid that, just post a general question about the manga. Most recent at top. Links to previous recommendations at bottom.

  1. [Imp] Trojita | Mashira: It's kind of refreshing to see a MC for once immediately notice there is a problem and put his game face on right away.
  2. [Imp] MetroidPrimeRib | Junji Ito's Fragments of Horror: Small collection of horror short stories of varying degrees of quality and themes by Junji Ito, but all of them are at least entertaining.
  3. [Short rev] MetroidPrimeRib | Alice in Borderland: An ending to a storyline like this would be hard to nail, but through all its twists and turns it still comes out satisfying.
  4. [Imp] JulianImp | It's my life: The premise is pretty nice, it has lots of heartwarming moments, and the comedy's also decent as well.
  5. [Rev] Semblance | Sekai Oni: So, basically, this is kind of a mess and I probably wouldn't recommend it - but it was also creative and weird enough that it kept me mostly entertained. It's one of those kind of reads.
  6. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Mei no Maiden: Still, the game + ruses in this (lengthy) opening chapter were entertaining enough that I'll keep a lazy eye on it.
  7. [Short imp] Taruranto | Sugiru Juunana no Haru: This was adequate I guess for a short horror story.
  8. [Long imp] ArclightBorealis | Devilman vs Hades: Devilman vs Hades remains exciting to read and doubles as probably my favorite Go Nagai cross over series.
  9. [Imp] Zweizer | Danberu nan kiro moteru?: Sadly, this has a negative effect on her weight, thus she decides to work off the excess calories at the newly opened Silverman gym near her school.
  10. [Imp] Lain | Fire Punch and Honey: Well now, this was a nice starting volume.
  11. Zweizer: NSFW batch ahoy!
  12. [Imp] Zweizer | Watashi no Yuri wa Oshigoto Desu! Schwestern in Liebe!: It was all an act. Her dream is to marry a billionaire and live the rest of her life in opulence.
  13. [Imp] Taruranto | Made in Abyss: This was a pretty good read, I thought it was going to be pretty slow, but it's surprisingly good paced.
  14. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Touhou - Datenshi (SFW doujin): Zounose has really grown on me as an author, though I'm sure that's partially due to all the attention he's been getting recently.
  15. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Black Lily and White Lily: But there was foot licking and hand-holding, so followed to the ends of the earth etc.
  16. [Short imp] Chase17 | Chio-chan: This series is hilarious.
  17. [Long Imp] Dedication Through Light | Gift: I was initially in it since it was a boxing manga and those seemed kind of rare and it was BL, but eventually I came to love it more and more (also younger seme is always a tag I love).
  18. [Imp] Numb | Komi-san wa Komyushou Desu: Like that soft shit will work on my heart colder than the deepest ocean wate-
  19. [Rev] Soma | Shin Chimoguri Ringo to Kingyobachi Otoko: At least it ended with the same twisted, weird but strangely heartwarming spirit that got me hooked on the series in the first place and the artwork was consistently fantastic throughout the whole thing.
  20. Zweizer reading some fluffy one-shots.
  21. [Imp] phaze | Houseki no Kuni: But I guess the mystery of the moon people and Pho's investigation of it was always pretty captivating...
  22. [Rev] Boogiepop | Boku Girl: All that said, there was still a lot to like about the series, and I enjoyed it overall quite a bit. Just... definitely some caveats due to the above stuff.
  23. [Long rev] Lain | My Capricorn Friend: A story about bullying, suicides, revenge and consequences with a sprinkle of supernatural, I found My Capricorn Friend mostly as an enjoyable read with obvious flaws.
  24. [Rev] Lain | Blue is the Warmest Color: I'm glad I got to read this, even if what I wanted out of it wasn't what was delivered.
  25. [Imp] Ascheroth | Raisekamika: With fucking gorgeous art.
  26. Taruranto with some stuff on Terra E, Nemureru Mori no Binan and its sequel Tomoi, and Marginal.
  27. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | The Witch's House - The Diary of Ellen: HOLY SHIT. I had no idea this was a thing, and now I'm shaking like I'm on a caffeine drip.
  28. [Rev] dani_dc | Billy Bat: The series was overall a mess, a fun mess at times, but an aimless mess that kept going through the same story beats until it reaches it's low key conclusion.
  29. [Imp] bigkrev | Shudan: I really like the 3 main characters, and the Perifery characters (ESPECIALLY the captain) all seem fine as well.
  30. [Short rev] Usobuko | Pipa Rat (one shot): Always dig autobiographical story especially when the setting is in rural villages.
  31. [Short rev] Zweizer | La Bian - Beautiful Magic Story (NSFW one shot): A series of three shrot stories, featuring some common story themes with a yuri twist.
  32. [Imp + rev] Lain | Born to be on air!: This one starts with a bang and only keeps improving as the story goes along. | Detonation Island: As a look in the bosozoku's way of life, this was a great read. As a growing up story, not so much.
  33. [Short rev] Taruranto | Terra E: Terra E was one of the first anime I genuinely liked, so it feels weird to revisit the manga like 7 years after. It actually brought back a lot of buried emotions and memories, eh.
  34. [Imp] Taruranto | A, A, prime.: Anyway, I'm surprised how much I enjoyed this.
  35. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Talentless Nana: It's about a regular girl who transfers to a school full of kids with superpowers, and has to systematically kill them without being detected, before they become one of the 'Enemies of Humanity' that they believe they're being trained to fight.
  36. [Imp] Zweizer | Ashita, Kimi ni Aetara (If we can meet tomorrow): Now 29 years old, how will she able to deal with a familair yet unknown home, amongst strangers that consider her family, as an adult that has no memories of the past 15 years?
  37. [Imp] Bright Side of Life | Fuku wo Kiru Nara Konna Fuu ni (If You're Gonna Dress up, Do It Like This): The story is written well while explaining simply how to accessorize, think about your silhouette, differences between clothing, etc.
  38. Bright Side of Life's Foodie Manga Recommendations
  39. [Short imp] Semblance | Tea Training Ceremony (one shot): Short (as in nine pages total short) story with [Kaoru] Mori's pretty art. It's cute.
  40. [Imp] GoldCrusader | Kimetsu no Yaiba: Wow I just read through this at lighting speed. It's way too good.
  41. PaulExcellent impressions for Gal Gohan, Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To: The Geniuses' War of Love and Brains, and Depression with Succubus.
  42. [Rev] A Huge Battleship | Madoka Magica - Sachikano (SFW doujin): Yet despite her creativity, she never commits my cardinal bugbear of departing far enough from the source material that it simply feels incidental.
  43. [Short imp] striferser | Kine-san no 1-ri de Cinema: This is hilarious and as a fan of zombie movie, the author really manage to capture the facts that so many zombie movie are absolutely shit.
  44. [Short imp] A Huge Battleship | Isekai Goumon Hime: I'm usually the first to vomit at isekai manga, particularly if they're light novel adaptations, but this heroine is pressing all my buttons, ticking all my boxes and ironing all my maidens.
  45. Zweizer: Yuri, ho!
  46. [Short rev] GoldCrusader | Golem Heart (one shot): I got interested by this because it was written by one of Horikoshi's assistant and man was this good.
  47. [Short imp] Sciel | Kono Oto Tomare: Its so good! Its like a cross between Chihayafuru and Your Lie in April (while omitting most of the melodrama).
  48. [Short imp] A Huge Battleship | The Spider Web (NSFW doujin): You were going to end up in a body bag anyway, and at least this way you have an interesting anecdote to tell the folks in the afterlife.
  49. [Short imp] Mediking | AIKI: The man has perfected comedy, action, and fanservice all into one.
  50. [Short rev] JulianImp | Aizawa-san Multiplies: Read it all on a whim, and while it was decent-ish...
  51. [Imp] Ascheroth | Carthasis: I'd classify it as a creepy supernatural mystery thriller with some legit great unsettling paneling and art at times.
  52. [Long imp] Lain | Death Hall: The gist of it is that after dying, people find themselves in a hall with various Officials which will help them write down papers to get accepted into paradise. The dead can decide to not write the papers and embark on a long walk into the void, where they'll disappear.
  53. [Short imp] Usobuko | Ninyo Ouji by Ozaki Kaori: From Kami-sama ga Uso o Tsuku author comes a compilation of sometimes quirky, sometimes sombre short stories. That's her trademark I guess.
  54. [Short rec] dumbyugi | Dragon Half: The art is nice enough, though it's nothing special. If you're in the mood for a light read then I would happily recommend this.
  55. [Short imp] NeoForte | Aharen-san wa Hakarenai: Has anyone else been following this? It's made me laugh out loud but it's also really damn adorable too. I'm loving it but sucks that it's bi weekly :/
  56. [Rev] mdubs | Beck: I'm a sucker for these types of coming of age stories like this and Bakuman where they spent years trying to achieve their dreams.
  57. [Imp] Black Bishop | Six Half: It doesn't really do anything new or outstanding but it does hit all those notes well, keeping its stride. All the characters feel like they have decent/realistic motives.
  58. [Long imp] Chase17 | Kimetsu no Yaiba: I like this a lot. The world is built up pretty well, and the training/time skip at the start was well done.
  59. [Imp] Zweizer | Yamada to Kase-san: It's pretty neat and I hope they'll continue to have nice moments together (as well as their friends).
  60. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Innocent Devil: It's fairly unhinged and I love it.
  61. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | Satan's Secretary: I'm getting strong Maou-jou de Oyasumi vibes from basically every element of this, which is high praise by itself, and combined with the promising humour and entertaining female lead it's a no-brainer to follow.
  62. [Imp] barber | Karakuri Circus: Well that was a fun ride, from a really strong first arc with a kinda traditional story to later on throwing a curveball...
  63. [Rev] A Huge Battleship | Madoka Magica - Anta Nanka Daikirai (SFW doujin): this was basically aimless (pre-Akuma) comedy throughout and it was still glorious, so idk
  64. [Imp] Black Bishop | The Strange Tales of Oscar Zhan: I have no idea what this webcomic is about. But, I'm hooked - honestly it had me at the talking skeleton in a suit.
  65. [Rev] moustascheman | Claymore: This was a pretty enjoyable read. It was a lot more original and unique than I thought it would be considering a lot of people I knew had told me that it was very similar to Berserk.
  66. [Imp] Black Bishop | Palace Meidi: Love the art, and I'm a sucker for star-crossed lover plot-lines, so I'll be keeping my eye on this. Hopefully, it can help fill the insatiable hunger for Shoujo I have.
  67. [Imp] A Huge Battleship | The World or Her: A manga about easy decisions: Do you romance your childhood waifu and inadvertently make her destroy the world, or do you protect it by dating the mysterious cuter/lewder girl who warns you about your waifu's destructive capabilities?
  68. [Imp] Chase17 | Welcome to Ballroom: Enjoying this a lot so far. I always tend to like when a protagonist initially struggles to find what they like before going full force into the topic.
  69. [Imp] Black Bishop | Knights & Magic: If you like mechs and other Isekai rubbish give it a quick read.
  70. [Long imp] Zweizer | Beastars: What stands out immediately is the strength of the character design, and by extension, how well thought-out the setting is.

Grand Blue 25 + 25.5

I think the "friends" chapters are my least favorite of this manga; not to say they don't make me laugh, but for a manga that generally does a good job avoiding tropes or having unique set-ups into resolutions, it plays the "all his friends are shit" straight like every other manga that does it and it's never actually funny because it always gets in the way of progress or better jokes, meaning it's at best frustrating and at worst insufferable.

I hate the fucking friends and find Iori's interactions with literally every other character in the manga much more redeeming. I do like them building Kouhei and the Seiyuu's stuff soon and I'm still eternally miffed that Iori's like "Yo Imma go flirt with these girls" in front of Azusa when he should really just go for her with serious intent instead of the random hook-up he was almost provided. Much as I love Chiori and much as that's totally the canon pairing, his relationship with Azusa is so great (also cause Azusa is far and away the best character).

Also, the little sister chapter was awesome. That's gonna come back to haunt him.

Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki 27

Nothing happened. Like, seriously. Introduce two elves and still most of the chapter was just the MMO guys saying a bunch of cryptic nonsense. Boring.

Yakumo-san wa Edzuke ga Shitai. 13

Dude's starting to recognize that he's constantly spending alone time with a hot widow. At least since he always thinks about baseball it'll help him later in this story's development.

Demi-chan wa Kataritai 26

Her wanting to become a scientist is a really good development. I really like how she figured that out.

Gantz: G 16

Why do I read this?

You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead 7

Man, this manga really is like reading Drifting Classroom or some old 70s horror manga. I love the style and the "there is no resolution, shit happens" style of storytelling that's reminiscent of Junji Ito's storytelling. The twist was really nice and I love the tone of this series. It's really good. I might do a bigger write-up for this and draw the comparisons out with it's influences. It's just nice to see a horror manga that isn't the current style cause I'm not a huge fan of most horror manga nowadays.

Fudatsuki no Kyoko-chan 18

Enjoyed the differing usage of the title between the different characters and I really am liking Iwahara more than I did before mainly because she doesn't react like a normal character in a romcom; she didn't blink at Kenji saying people thought they were dating and she immediately goes to Hibino and tells her straight out to clear up the misunderstanding. More people in manga need to act like that.

...even if it did cause more misunderstandings. At least they cleared it up in a couple pages. Ughh is right, Kyoko-chan.

Kako and the False Detective 1a

This series is pretty good! I enjoyed Princess Resurrection even with it's problems so it's nice to see a series by the same dude. We'll never have a girl as good as Riza again but Kako is a nice replacement. I do enjoy that he's actually not super smart or anything, he just has a huge cheat guide which gave him his boy detective name.

Helk 88 This was a pretty slow chapter but HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT STINGER!

Sesuji wo Pin! 78 As this continues, I actually think Sakamoto might be my favorite manga antagonist of all time. He just oozes such damn charisma and he's so god damn good at what he does but not in an obnoxious way. And all the time he's throwing everyone off with his antics because that's just the kind of dude he is.

I like Ballroom e Youkoso a lot but if I'm honest, I really do like Sesuji wo Pin more. Sakamoto makes for such a great antagonist because this is a manga about ballroom dancing; he's not a jerk or some evil, "NO FUN IN DANCING" idiot, he's just REALLY good and wants everyone to love ballroom dancing and do the best they can do. So he constantly draws people into his own pace, gets them to do better...and then beats them completely because he's just that good. That's what makes him so great.

Well that would at least make an interesting situation but I can't trust any Japanese mangaka to tackle the subject in a thoughtful fashion. Also, brown paper bags as masks are always funny.

I say that but there's got to be at least a couple Arabic novels/movies where the MC is infatuated with a girl like this.


Also, as always, thanks dramatis for the huge recs/imps posts.

Seems a lot of my predictions are coming true for the end of the tourney arc. The MA is trying to turn powerful but corruptible humans into even more powerful and fucked up monsters. Saitama is just fucking around with Shoiryu who is indeed pretty powerful all things considered but nothing against a hip check from Saitama. Now I'm guessing Saitama stands off to the side while all the remaining martial artists take on the Crow monsters and the Dragon Class who just showed up. Maybe they even win and impress Saitama with their martial arts.

Hmm, I suppose the one thing I don't get is...Saitama could have kept his wig on and won the prize...just by beating down on Shiryu...I know in ONE's version he takes a lot of attacks from Tatsumaki and doesnn't respond But usually if a guy is coming at him, he will just smack him upside the head. Especially after Shiryu going at him as much as he did. Still I am fine with how it played out, and Shiryu got what was coming to him, even if what came to him was the prize money and all the plaudits...haha

Saitama doesn't really seem to hurt human's even when they deserve it in many cases. Even when he beat the Tank Top Brothers up it seemed like he thought he pushed it a bit far since he thought they'd be a lot stronger.

All Out: Caught the beginning of the anime and decided to pick up the manga as a scanlation site had picked it up. While the art style is not for everyone it does have a certain charm. Love the action and motion of the Rugby games as well as how well it manages to convey the rules and tactics behind the game. It often reminds me of a grittier, more realistic, rugby version of Eyeshield 21. Not saying that it's as good as that but if you enjoyed Eyeshield 21 you may enjoy this.

Ippo: I'm liking the fact we seem to be getting some actual progress back into this manga. Not much mind you.. but it's there. Though I feel the first new fight Ippo has could be over in a single panel.

Red Raven: "When the Raven starts to sing, people die." In an unstable world, a weak government, uses contracted 'lawful' killers in order to reduce unpunished crimes committed by the mafia. It's a nice little title with interesting characters and weapons, similar to Trigun in that respect. We also have super powered weapons made by the mad 'Scaggs' clan who have delved into human experimentation more than once to spice it up. It's an action shounen so don't expect it to be too deep but nevertheless it's a fun read.

Ubel Blatt: I guess this will tide me over till Berserk resumes (whenever that is...)

I recall him mentioning that it was Athena from Hayate the Combat Butler.

Honestly I SHOULD love this manga. Lifting weights? Delicous brown girl? Slight chub?

Problem is its just not that funny. And its filled with so much fitness and nutrition pseudoscience. Most egregiously an intermittent fasting type diet (which has been proven to increase many health factors and is a great way to lose weight) is called "the kind of diet sumo wrestlers use to gain weight"

No? EDIT: Apparently this is actually true?
