DMT: Err... I just saw some raws for chapter 17 of Kagerou Days.
...
how?
I don't see this being a really long series if the manga is already going to cover Outer Science!

Almost tempted to look up light-novel spoilers, but of course I won't.
This is either the series turning super interesting all of a sudden, or it is a serious pacing issue.
Hibiya and Konoha haven't even been introduced yet.
And of course its a cliffhanger so that we probably won't get to know the answer before November/december.
Could be an interesting way to introduce us to Mary no Kakuu Sekai if what I think is going to happen happens.

DAT: Well, OP chapter today was awesome, but at least I know how I'd react to meeting Oda.

Damn, I so need to catch up with OP, but then again the more chapters I let pile up the more consecutive fangasms I'll get *ahem* the more awesome at once.

There's actually a ton going on right now in OP, well I mean even more than usual. I'd probably wait until things die down a little bit before a readgasm and getting back to the agony of waiting week to week.

Heh, yeah, though that may take a while at this rate.
I hesitate to call it the best arc so far, but this is easily one of the most fun arcs in the series.

Edit:
Oh my fucking Haruhi, Horimiya is so goddamn GOOD!
Honestly, it doesn't do anything flashy, doesn't have any highly dramatic storyline, no over the top characters, token tropes or any of that shit!
There's something subtle about it, but it somehow makes it stand apart from pretty much all other series of similar settings.
This latest chapter was particularly awesome.
The A-P rating is well deserved.

Bleh. It's a plotless rom-com with generic artwork that does the same thing 100 of his predecessors did, but just a bit better... I wouldn't put it in top 200. 10th place is a joke.

It does it quite a lot better, especially the characterization, but if romcoms aren't your thing in general then obviously it won't necessarily look so great.
It's a shounen to boot.

I'm a fan of anything if it's good, rom-coms included. This one didn't really do anything out of the ordinary for a rom-com, but rather made it way too ordinary. I won't say anything about characterization and development because it's still incomplete... I kind of like it for what it is, but that's not much. And I still can't remember anyone's name... well, that does tell a bit about characterization. And yeah, I'm not a fan of Shounen tropes. They are not complementing this is any way.

The shounen part was my point. It's not recognizable as one.
I barely spotted any shounen-specific tropes at all. I thought it was a seinen the entire time.
And while the setting may be similar to many things, these characters simply aren't in many other series at all.
They're three-dimensional without any hamfisting narrative or spectacular displays.
