Manga |OT|: No matter how I look at it, it's discord's fault we're not popular

So I'm guessing the relative silence about my Made in Abyss comment means it actually is as bad as it sounds.

Wotakoi v1-2
It might be because I've just gotten into a relationship again but I'm melting at this, it is so cute
Wotakoi is so good. I read it on CMX but I might have to spring for the physical releases.

Volume 3 is even cuter. Well, it's actually volumes 5&6. The volumes are bundled for the US release.
it's funny because in terms of spending time together and just generally existing in the same space and knowing one another they are far advanced but also they haven't kissed yet, because japan (and shoujo tropes i guess)

also 2 vols is perfect sizing, 3 vols was way too big for comfort to hold (like physically)

I agree. It could be better, but having read bits and pieces of the manga, the anime does at least attempt to tone the creepiness down somewhat. There's no actual detailed nudity in the anime for example *gags*.
I know exactly what scene you're talking about and I couldn't believe someone actually drew that and thought ot was okay and I've read Narutaru.

What do u guys think of Watamote? IMO I would've liked it more if it didn't take literally 80 chapters to go anywhere

i want to read it because i hear it's basically turned into a yuri manga, but also, there's so much fucking awks to get through i dunno if i can handle that
There's a ton of yuri teasing rn tbh, which is not what I read Watamote for in the first place :(

I read Watamote to see Tomoko grow as a person (and hopefully apply it to myself)

i dont know if i would look to watamote for life lessons necessarily since my feeling was always it kinda just revelled in her being awks as fuck

Just began reading Goodnight Punpun and man, I didn't expect this to have some horror elements. The adults in this series are really something...

Going to have to read the rest tomorrow but so far I love it.

I think that the central characters of the school festival arc will be Yotsuba and Itsuki - the former is having difficulty in hiding her real feelings, while the latter got a D in the predictor test and could fail the admission to university, so she must be helped by Fuutarou to achieve her goal. I think it will be the moment where she will fell in love for him.

If you had to recommend a manga purely on impactful visuals, what would you recommend?

My mind automatically goes to something that has that, you know, turn a page and it's a massive, beautifully composed, detailed spread. I can't think of specifics though - maybe Solanin? Ran and the Grey World? It's weird when you think about manga as this very visual medium but I can't pull up a name off the top of my head (probably because I largely read 4komas I guess)

Like I was thinking about Yuru Camp but to be frank I don't think the art in the Yuru Camp manga is all that. It's the beginnings of all that but the anime art is a lot stronger (obviously because they have specialised background artists doing the art)

latest Samurai 8 chapter was quite good. Some pretty good paneling and placement for the flashback. Kishimoto still has it when he wants to.

Luffy's spider senses are tingling from the force of that. He will find a way to dumbass his way into this one and try to make it a three way fight

World Trigger 182-183:
STRATEGY TALK. In any case it's a shame that it looks like Kitora isn't going to be on commentary. Konami is an acceptable replacement though.

Weak that Torimaru went full Ninomaru and is actually wearing that suit like that lol.


Owari no Serafu! 81

Everything got so intense wow and all these betrayals.

Mika's YuuSense, Yoichi guiding Kimizuki away, the other Guren. Sepetember hurry.

BLue Exorcist

Yukio going all out, didnt expect the arc to go in this direction with him pulling out his FINAL MOVE like that.

So I wanted to get into Made in Abyss but I was told it has some gross sexualization of children in it. Does the Western release of the manga or the anime adaptation fix that at all?
Good timing to start posting, lol. AFAIK, the US manga version (Seven Seas) is unaltered. And if that is, every other version should be unaltered as well (aside the translation, of course). The anime version is just visually toned down. Those scenes also more come off as pure comedy, but hard to say if that was intended or not.
