It was pretty damn good. What's going on feels realistic and the character drama is not overdone at all. It hits many right spots and it delivers a heartfelt message I enjoyed. It could have been even better with more pages to go with for more insight, but as is I can see why this would be an award winning one-shot work.

Gave it 4 stars, looking forward to grabbing the actual series. I guess I probably should wait for it to end, right? Or would you guys recommend otherwise for this kind of story?



P.S. I'm going to rec this for Onani Master Kurosawa.


EDIT: Done! It's late so the way it's written is probably sloppy though. Might want to check it back in the morning.
If someone want's to remind me tonight, I'll grab an image for it and add it to the entry.

Naruto being back puzzles me. Was the hiatus cancelled?

Surprised that they decided to allow the hiatus of both at once. I mean, like Bleach alone is going to keep people buying this, hehe...
Assassination Classroom and Shokugeki no Soma keep people buying it, which is probably why the latter is suddenly being pimped out so much right now.
It's like they're doing everything they can to celebrate the first anniversary just short of announcing an anime.
(which it will probably be at least half a year until we hear any word of)
Actually, pretty much every series in WSJ is selling pretty darn well right now, which is kind of a problem.
New series don't stand a chance unless they're something totally rad.
Some series may end up needing to transfer to make space.

*sigh*
I wish someone would start scanlating The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki again. Haven't seen any new chapters translated in like half a year now, and seeing it do so well in the ratings really makes me crave more.
I seriously didn't expect it to survive for long, but doesn't appear to be anywhere near danger at all. It regularly outranks other humor series like Gintama.
Over half a year's worth of chapters... if someone were to scanlate...
*drool*

Haha, I actually read it because you rec'd it Onani Master Kurosawa. It was indeed a very nice bittersweet story. Well done with a surprising amount of development in just sixty pages. It could have easily been so cheesy and sentimental, but the author kept it nice and grounded which makes the moral at end feel that much more genuine.

DMT: The writer of Kangoku Gakuen wrote Me and the Devil Blues, the latter so dreadfully under-appreciated. That just blew my mind.

I'm trying to read the new Horimiya chapter, but wherever I try to read it, there's something fucked about it.
The colors and picture quality is completely ruined, if not just black pages. What the hell?
I thought something was wrong with my computer at first, but everything appears to be in order.
Edit: It seems like it is some sort of sabotage by the scanlators against manga streaming sites that are not batoto.

Yeah i saw that too, Batoto is the best place to read anyway, so it's no biggie. Chapter was good though, especially that ending.

DMT:
Well that was absurdly awesome, Murasakiiro no Qualia's a very interesting mix of sci-fi and fantasy. The concept feels intriguing and this is getting disturbingly more depressing.
The premise is crazy enough to work for me and it has a neat philosophical angle to it, pretty excited about where they'll go with this.
