Most Recent Manga You Have Read
« on: January 15, 2009, 01:52:40 PM »
Well, as there is a thread of this type for anime, music and video games I thought it was about time for one to be placed here in the Manga section. Currently I am reading:

One Piece: 510-524
Naruto Shippuden: 420-429
Bleach: 332-337
Yu-Yu Hakusho: 1-15
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi: 315-320

So what is everyone else reading?

Rereading Kekkaishi.  Also following many manga through scanslation and trying to name some off the top of my head.

Mahou Sensei Negima
Kaichou wa Maid-sama
Penguin Revolution
Dear
Gakuen Alice
Sugar Family
Faster than a Kiss
Seifuku ni Onegai
World Embryo
Yankee-kun to Megane-chan

Oh geez, they're all stereotypical shoujo.  Well, mostly.

Angel Sanctuary: 1-10
Love Hina: 43-60
Elfen Lied: 1-15

By the way, is Gakuen Alice or Mahou Sensei Negima fairly good?

Well, if you've ever read Kodocha, Gakuen Alice's atmosphere is a lot like Kodocha's.  Has child main characters, lots of random humor but gets more serious later on.  I know I enjoy it.

As for Mahou Sensei Negima, you are reading Love Hina right now...  There's probably the same amount of fanservice in the two.  It does have an interesting plot and action, though.  The arcs are so long though so be prepared to read a while.  Wouldn't say there's any big flaws to deter reading it, though.

Negima's first arc is 18 volumes long. Its called "The First Semseter". The next arc just started as far as the american releases go. They're up to vol 20.

Negima in general is a great story like all of Akamatsu's works (A.I. Love You and Love Hina), but you can definitely see the reoccuring theme playout through all 3 series.

The only difference between the 3 is how many main/supporting characters there are. In A.I. Love You (english title), there was only 4 to 5 main/reoccuring characters that help moved the story. Love Hina had about 8 to 10 main/reoccuring characters. Negima has about 30+ because it deals with an entire class of female students. Considering Negima takes place in an all-girls academy, you'll run into the same antics and ecchi content like Love Hina. Though as the story progresses from volume 1, you'll see that the ecchi side actually dies down alot when the story really gets going. Imagine the Soul Society Arc in Bleach. Thats how long Negima's "First Semster" Arc takes.

More info then you probably needed but oh well. I thoroughly enjoy Akamatsu's works, regardless if its the same general theme, I just like the hilarity of it all plus good story as well.

Never read Gakuen Alice. So I have no info.

Anyhow back on topic:

Naruto Shippuuden: Chapters 430-431
GirlxGirlxBoy (One Shot): Chapters 1-7 [Complete] (Interesting one shot)
