1 Manga: Favourite and currently reading! on Sun Apr 17, 2016 7:58 pm

Well, it looks like we don't have a thread specifically for manga, so I thought I would start one!


My top manga are probably Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, Akatsuki no Yona, 7 Seeds, and Gekken Shoujo Nozaki-kun.

Nausicaa and Nozaki I would recommend to everyone. Nozaki is some of the funniest stuff I have ever read it just kills me bless that book, and I think that Nausicaa is one of the greatest stories ever told, it is spectacular on basically every level, and comes with a few content warnings (death, war, violence, slavery), but nothing is gratuitous or used trivially. If you could watch Princess Mononoke, then I would say that Nausicaa is okay for you.

Akatsuki no Yona is super fun and adventurous and sad and (sadly non-canonically) gay. I am currently reading new chapters of it and too excited to speak about it coherently. I'll try later.

7 Seeds is post-apocalyptic survival and that is so my jam it hurts. It has a great character focus, but also doesn't shy away from exciting adventure or horror. Also: How does it make me ship straight couples? What is this magic? How? Why? Where? When? Sorry. Anyway. I am seriously considering liveblogging a rereading of this because the wait for new chapters is burning away me soul and it hurts. It does come with a ton of content warnings, though (violence, death, sexual assault, abuse, child abuse) although it usually treats these things well, it does misstep on occasion.


Worst thing I've read is possibly Gantz. I had a friend who wanted me to read it for her so I could give her chapter by chapter content warnings and it was just like no, please every chapter, this is bad bad bad. Don't read Gantz.

Oh I love, love, love Akatsuki no Yona. The current chapters with Hak hugging people is so adorable, and I love how Yona is growing up. I really want to see a chapter where Yona, Soo-won, and Hak sit down and talk. Who do you ship Yona with? Doesn't Zeno need more hugs?

Skip Beat is in my favorites right now. I love how Kyoko is slowly getting over her hate of love and her growing relationship with Ren. The number one thing I want to happen through, is for Kyoko and Shotaro become friends again. Yeah, he is an stupid teenage boy that has a real ego, but I'm a sap for childhood friends staying close.

I haven't read 7 Seeds yet, but I love Basara that is from the same author.

Gintama, Detective Conan, and Boku no Hero Academia are some of my favorite mangas. I could talk about them for days. I also like Ratman, and would think that would be a great show.
