I find it fairly amusing that on Halloween I’m writing about the best manga villain for my 30 day manga challenge. Because I read a lot of shojo manga and there aren’t really any characters you could define as ‘villains’, my picks for today were pretty hard to come up with. I think I’ve made the right choices in the end though.
Today I have yet another tough question to answer for my manga challenge (and yes I do find myself saying this everyday!). For my eighth challenge I have to pick my favourite manga couple which is definitely a challenging question.
A part of me has been really looking forward to today’s challenge and a part of me hasn’t been at all. It’s a fun challenge but I’ll likely never live it down among my closest friends. Nevertheless here’s my answers for my manga crush!
Day four of the 30 day manga challenge and I finally have a reasonably easy question to answer. Favourite female character is a lot easier for me than favourite male character as I don’t have as many female characters I regard all that highly.
Third day of the 30 day manga challenge and I’ve been left with a fairly tricky question. The challenge for today is to decide on my favourite male manga character ever. Why do I have to have so many tricky questions so many days in a row?!
So, here we are at the start of the 30 day manga challenge. For the first day I’ve got a fairly simple question – very first manga I read. It’s not a tough question and I remember my first series fondly. In light of keeping this interesting I figured I’d list a few of my first manga rather than just one.
A friend of mine, Mocorochi, is taking part in the 30 day anime challenge over at his blog. In light of this I figured I’d take the same challenge only in light of needing a few more manga articles up on here I figured I’d do a 30 day manga challenge and follow it up with a 30 day anime challenge afterwards!
Fuuka acts as a sequel to Koji Sei’s Suzuka work with ran from March 2004 until September 2007. The story tells of Yuu Haruna who has just moved into a new town and while out buying dinner runs into a mysterious girl in the form of Fukka Akitsuki. With this encounter Yuu’s life is about to change in big ways forever, but perhaps that’s getting ahead of ourselves…
Say I Love You is a long running Shojo manga by Kanae Hazuki that I’ve loved for quite some time. Last year an anime adaption of the manga was streamed by Crunchyroll in the US and UK and since then Kodansha Comics picked the manga up for an English release. Now we’re four volumes into the English release and yet again I find myself thoroughly enjoying this Shojo story.
Anyone up to date with the Naruto manga will have been expecting this news for quite some time, but nevertheless today it has now been confirmed that Naruto will run for five more chapters and come to an end in the 50th Shonen Jump issue for the year which will be released on the 10th of November.
The series has been published in Jump weekly since 1999 and once it finishes will have gotten to a grand total of 700 chapters. Viz Media publishes the series outside of Japan and includes the series in Weekly Shonen Jump. So far 67 volumes of the series have been published outside of Japan.
