Just started reading this and I am already feeling bad for the protag.
The other ghouls being dicks doesn't help either, and I'm really disliking them now aside from the old guy

One Piece:

Oh God, that was just too awesome. Law+Luffy are the greatest team ever. And that fucking smug look on Law's face right before he chops up Trebol = Priceless. Also, I really feel awful for Bellemy, he gets his ass stomped left and right and now Doflamingo makes him his bitch... dude just can't catch a break.



Haitus X Haitus:


Forgive my rant in advance, but seriously? What's the point of even coming back off hiatus if you're only going to write a handful of chapters and go right back into hiatus again. I know the official explanation is "sickness", but there's not that much sickness in the world. People like Oda have been writing constantly for damn near 20 years with only very minor breaks but Togashi can't even keep a schedule of a few months without getting the sniffles and being unable to work. I truly know the life of a mangaka is crushingly hard, but when you've been on hiatus for nearly 2 years, and then have had multiple breaks when you JUST came back, you've had more than enough break time.

I highly suspect dude is completely burned out and just doesn't want to write the series anymore. If that's the case, I wish he would have just ended the series with Chimera Ant arc, which was the PERFECT time to do so, since Gon finally met his dad and it could have ended semi-satisfying. That would have been preferable to him starting new storyline and charaters which peak interest again, only to hop out again and leave his fans dangling for god knows how long this time.

I usually don't bitch like this, but this has really REALLY been annoying me with Togashi for years now and this just aggravates me even more. Dude creates one of my favorite manga's ever but just doesn't seem to really want to write it anymore, so it burns/bums me out quite a bit with the ridiculous amount of breaks/hiatuses. Guess I'll go back to reading my old volumes again to get my HxH fix.

This thread. Gambling is wrong folks.

Love Live vol 1

Man, reading this feels weird after watching the anime. The differences in the developments aside, some of the personalities are way off from their animated counterparts, particularly Eli. It's inferior but still pretty enjoyable, despite Nozomi being basically non-existent in this volume.

Sengoku Youko 1-63

Very nice read. I didn't know at first, but the familiar art style clearly showed that this work is of the Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer mangaka. Very interesting story, I love time skips like the one that happened and the shift of main characters. Apropos characters, all of them are very enjoyable. I was surprisingly not annoyed by anyone.


Monster Musume 1-26.5

At first I had my doubts, after Centaur's Worries this seemed a bit plumb and I didn't like Snake and Centaur went annoying fast. But drama fetish mermaid saved the day and Rachnee is the very best, be it personalty or appearance. Suu is also very sweet, although I dislike her ... habbit of taking the wet from other girls.


Need more monster girl stories! :(

Keep on reading, the series becomes so good. Also what chapter are you on?

Fate/kaleid liner

Ilya not being ax-crazy is weird. Now I feel bad for how shitty her life is in F/SN and F/Z.

Also, Shirou is barely in this and his sex god status is reaching Yu Narukami levels.

Is Nishio's insults about Kankei being a girl or woman some kinda japanese sexist thing or is Nishio just sexist?

If this isn't the last game of the match, I don't think I'll be able to take it.

3D Kanojo 13

Cute, funny, but not very eventful chapter. I hope the translations speed up again after this chapter.

I would be somewhat disappointed if off all prayers I did in my life, this was the one God choose to listen to.
Still, wouldn't it ending this shortly mean that it's much less severe punishment compared to HxH going on hiatus in 70 chapters? Just means that we don't have to wear nisekoi avatars for that long. :p

Actuallyyyyyyy, the punishment is how many chapters you are off equals to how many days you have to become part of Nisekoi|OT|.

I think.

The average bet was 40 chapters, so this is basically the same as if it went up to 70 chapters long!

Just now we get to have another betting pool sooner.

I also notice that the lowest bet won the pool!

Well considering they live in a ghoul society and everything's difficult his insults aren't a sexist thing. Also
Nishio
is like that to everybody considering his difficult life. So it really isn't sexist.

This is depressing. Ishida's really
dead
?
His road to redemption is done, I guess? Either way, this is depressing but I want to know more.

Naruto

Almost at the end. I guess last chapter will be 700.

One Piece

So next is the part where the villain gets hurt again then unleashes his super moves, right?

Nisekoi vol 4

Man, it's fun to go back and read this stuff. Remember when they found the childhood photo and it looked like we would find out who the promised girl was?

That was like, 100 chapters ago.

Ugh.

Why Togashi just don't do some rushed end and call it.

He probably has enough money to play all DQ from now on until year 2300.

I can't imagine he's bound to some contract or something....


everybody lost

everybody gets nisekoi

nisekoi is love

nisekoi is life
The only winners are those who didn't play.

So this wasn't half bad.

It has your standard apocalyptic, monster terrorizing the populace setting sure.

But combined with a nice art style, a likable MC (Who wears an awesome hat), his comedic interactions with everyone, and a monster spewing big bad that I personally like to call "Sauron", and it turned out to be a pretty decent read.

Plus there's a donut loving loli.

And as far as I know.

That can only mean good things.

You poor soul.

No amount of money or betting in this world would be enough for someone to actually force me to change my avatar into that abomination of a character.
He could choose from other characters.

So there's some degree of autonomy in it.
