What manga series are you reading as of now?

Storm the Lycanroc

Oshawott Squad
Finally received the shipment of Beastars Volumes 1-6 I've been waiting on. In order to enjoy the experience I've decided to limit myself to only reading one chapter a day. That way I'll be able to enjoy it through the whole summer!

Funny thing is this is the first anime/manga that I'm genuinely interested in. I haven't owned a manga since I was young kid.

Vinland Saga and AoT, except that I'm waiting for new chapters. Apart from that, I also intend to continue from where Bungo Stray Dogs' anime left off.

Read Sweet Home.

It's strange. Have you ever seen a selfish cowardly character that you absolutely hated and then at the very last second, your actually starting to warm up to this character as she is given some great character development. This coward wants to stop being the coward, she wants to actually help and protect people after witnessing other people's heroism and just when that character finally wants to turn a new leaf after realizing how unhappy she was with her decisions and her life, she dies an unexpectedly tragic death. It's weird how one person perfectly described this moment, a satisfying and yet sad death because people still loathed her for what she did but at the same time, they'd feel she could've been redeemed if given a second chance.

I binge read Parasyte, and wow it was so good!
I don't like horror series generally but I give Parasyte a pass because of Reiko.

I'm currently reading Edens Zero and Jujutsu Kaisen, so far I'm enjoying these series and can't wait to see the anime adaptation of it.
Have you read Rave/Fairy Tail, and if so, how do you think Edens Zero compares? I need to add some more weekly series, because all I've got currently is One Piece, and even though I got sick of Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima is still 2/2 in long-running series that hold a weird amount of appeal for me. Though I'm also thinking about some other Jump series that I've heard are good, like Chainsaw Man and Spy x Family, if anyone reads those or anything else good.

I'm also going through The World God Only Knows. I didn't hate the anime adaption, but nearing the midway point of the manga, it clearly didn't do the manga justice. While several of Keima's captures that they skipped over to adapt the Goddesses arc aren't really "waifu" material I guess, they're pretty thematically interesting. There's also a lot of gradual characterization that I feel the anime cut out, or I don't remember it for some reason.

I haven't read or watch Rave Masters and Fairy Tail so I can't really compare them.

I've read 6 chapter of Chainsaws Man and I find the series interesting so far, the art is really good and I like the characters haven't read Spy x Family but I do heard it's good so I definitely think you should check it out if you want to read other weekly series.

Read the latest chapter of Gosu. Man, what a twist. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it since Aizen deceived Soul Society in Bleach.

Okay MASSIVE SPOILERS, but you know the evil Dark Lord trope, how stories build up the big evil bad? So apparently there is this big evil villain named Okcheonbi who is hyped up as the ultimate villain of the Gosuverse, utilizing demonic powers, since the first installment I think, never read Yongbi so I wouldn't know all the details but judging by what readers are saying, he was this OP villain pulling the strings. By the time our heroes meet this big bad villain, he's already on the verge of death. No epic fight, no epic conversation of wits, we only see this legendary villain already on his death bed, expressing how he wanted to be a great king of a powerful nation, not a infamous god of ruin. This legendary villain from another time expresses how he got outsmarted by the story's true mastermind, a sorcerer that played his allies like a fiddle and goddamn, this is so intriguing. I'm loving this sorcerer villain because we never see this guy fight once but from what we have seen from him is how he defeats his foes with his wits, how he is pulling the strings, how when his villainous "allies" realized he played them like a fiddle it is too late.

I think I may have found my next Aizen. Actually I suppose the difference between Aizen and this Sorcerer who I will not name is that his plans are actually not convoluted.

I'm reading Dungeon Meshi aka Delicious in Dungeon. At first it seems like it's gonna be a cooking manga with a quirky "fantasy dungeon-crawling" backdrop, but it turns out to have approximately the best world-building I've found in a manga series in a very long time. Turns out it's a top-tier fantasy adventure that starts you off with low expectations and a very classic setting. It's also wonderfully paced, has lovely characters, and the art is fantastic.

I also started reading a gag manga called Me & Roboco which is only a few chapters in. It's about a young boy and his portly robo-maid in the near future. Each chapter is a comical misadventure focusing on some aspect of the character's lives, whether it's camping, school crushes, or Twitter. It also ruthlessly parodies and references popular ongoing manga like Jujutsu Kaisen and The Promised Neverland, along with Shounen Jump as a whole. It's a lot of fun.

Agreed, Delicious in Dungeon is great. Oh, you think it's just gonna be a fantasy manga with a cooking gimmick? Guess what, you're learning how ecological systems work now.

Let's see if I can remember everything:

Demon Slayer, Promised Neverland, My Hero Academia (both main series and the vigilantes spin-off), Pokémon Adventures (finished R/S arc but there's signs pointing to it being cancelled), One Punch Man, Sakura Card Captor Clear Card Arc, Sakura Wars, Hokuto no Ken, Saint Seiya Kanzenban Edition and Persona 5. With the exception of Persona 5, all of them are from the publishers in my country.

Before I say what I'm actually reading/following for now, I would like to mention a manga(? actually not really, it's a Korean webcomic...but Tower of God has been mentioned here so I think it still counts!) called Love Actually: Hades x Persephone. It's actually a spin-off of the author's comic Love Actually, hence the Hades x Persephone part, and I absolutely love it. I had found it because I jokingly searched "hades persephone anime/manga" and eventually that was a result.

As the name suggests, it's a story about Hades and Persephone from Greek mythology, specifically a reimagining of how they ended up together. It may be different from the myth, but I think it worked well foe the story. The art looked great to me, I just loved the designs for all the gods and goddesses (especially Thanatos. One of the most original designs I've seen of him) and it was great seeing the interactions between Hades and Persephone, aka I got my dose of Hades and Persephone fluff. In short, if you love Greek mythology, especially those two specifically, you'l probably REALLY like this. I know I do.

Now what I'm actually reading is two things, Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest and Tonikaku Kawaii.

Yeah yeah, "Fairy Tail is bad", "Fairy Tail has too much power of friendship", "-insert FT arc here- was terrible", but I had finished watching Fairy Tail a while ago and I have never loved an anime as much as FT, so of course I read the sequel manga and, honestly, I'm loving it so far and what they've done in it especially the shipping moments. And I don't mind the bi-weekly schedule since that means I can focus on other things while waiting. So yeah, even if it's not the most amazing thing in the world compared to other works, I love it.

Just like Tonikaku Kawaii and oh my gosh do I love it. Like with FT, I watched the anime first and that was such an absolute blast that I decided to read the manga and it didn't disappoint. Even without the numerous references to pop culture (including Western media) and the jokes about it (like the MC, Nasa, was hit by Truck-kun in the beginning but didn't get isekai'd thanks to his future-wife, Tsukasa, saving him), it's a pretty heartwarming and hilarious story of a married couple navigating married life and being, well, couple-y around each other. And also an occasional wacky adventure and the cast commenting about said adventure (like them joking about bath episodes and common tropes in anime and stuff, likd death flags). I would definitely reccomend reading it if you want some heartwarming stuff.

Oh and I also finished reading The Promised Neverland a long while ago (binged on it actually). I thought it was good, if not great. And I was fine with how it ended. Yes even with what happened with Emma. I thought it compromised weel between being a fitting consequence for what happened and getting the happy ending that I at least wanted, though I had a feeling some wouldn't see it that way (from what I remember of some people's thoughts on the ending anyway).

Started reading Golden Kamuy shortly before New Years and haven't been able to stop since. A carefully-researched, wonderfully-drawn historical adventure with unforgettable characters. The clean style and character designs remind of FMA in their down-to-earth simplicity, yet the author keeps finding new and exciting situations to throw at the cast. Everyone should read this.

Reading The Boxer, a new manhwa that's been getting real popular recently for it's unorthodox storytelling. What makes this so appealing is that you see much of the story told through the POV of every challenger, every antagonist, and every adversary our protagonist faces.

No matter how cruel or despicable some may appear, the story will often remind you that they are human beings with hopes, dreams, flaws, interesting and often tragic backstories, friends and family that are rooting for them. And for a brief moment, you realize each of them have the potential to be the shonen protagonist of their very own manga, the underdog hero of their own story only to later realize... they aren't the main character. The one crushing their dreams is.
