    Have you read Saturn Apartments? It's a slice-of-life about a window cleaner in space. It starts off pretty episodic but gets more of an overarching story as it goes on. It's 7 volumes long & I checked and it is available on Kindle. I really enjoyed it.

    Also, would you recommend The Drifting Classroom?
    That's already on my want to read list, and definitely a contender. :yes: Thanks for the recommendation!

    I'd strongly recommend The Drifting Classroom, I can see why Kazuo Umezu is considered such a master of horror manga, as it's quite shocking stuff, especially considering the ages of the characters. Fantastic art too. Definitely the best thing I'm reading at the moment.

    That's pretty cool, did you buy manga online or are there places near you that sell them? Thanks for the list i'll take a look!

    Yeah it's almost twice as long :laugh: it's pretty good though, very much psychological and all. Love the main guy as well :flutter:
    I bought the vast majority online - Amazon, ebay, The Book Depository, occasionally Abebooks for rarer volumes. :yes:

    There's nowhere around here for miles that sells manga (that I know of...), but I managed to pick up a lot of volumes on my travels. I bought my first ever manga (vol.1 of Chobits) in Waterstones in Reading while visiting my grandparents, and usually buy a couple of volumes there each year. Forbidden Planet in Wolverhampton turned out to be quite the treasure trove of rare volumes, and I only ended up in the city because of a delay in my train journey. :p: Then there's the Telford Expo, which (while expensive) usually has a great range.

    Does every Forbidden Planet do 3 for 2 on manga? They have that offer at my local one & that was a big part in me building up my manga collection. Think I'm probably going to hit 500 volumes this summer.

    I'm not sure, I've not been near one for over a year.

    Confusingly, there are two completely unrelated companies called Forbidden Planet that sell anime anime and manga in the UK - both had 3 for 2 offers in their stores when I was last there, but I always preferred FP International, as the two I've visited (Birmingham and Wolverhampton) had a huge range of older/rarer manga included in said deal, whereas plain old Forbidden Planet (or its stores in Birmingham and Bristol, at least) focus on newer releases, mostly published by Viz.

    Well that didn't take long at all. I've caught up to date on Haikyuu!! Pretty glad I picked up the series as it's totally my thing. This series has by far had the most funniest reactions from the 300 odd series I've seen :rofl:

    Looking for another recent series that is decent? Preferably not a sport one this time? :teeth: Any decent shounens or maybe even a school anime with romance in it?

    Completed:
    Sidonia no Kishi
    Kill la Kill
    Chuunibyou
    Noragami
    Hitsugi no Chaika

    Ongoing:
    Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
    Zankyou no Terror
    Hunter x Hunter (strongly recommended, if you don't mind playing catchup for ~140 eps :p:)

    I've actually just watched the latest episode of HxH. I've watched the original series and the OVA too :cool: It's pretty much sums up why I love shounen

    I've picked up the odd series that are popular like Attack on Titans but I have much to catch up on :mmm: This 2 year back log of anime :afraid:

    Where to begin :hmmmm: Are these all completed series? I think I might put ongoing stuff on hold until I've caught up

    Also updating A-P profile :afraid:

    At least this way you will only watch decent shows - I've been watching way too much crap given my obsession with watching everything every season!

    All the one's I've mentioned are complete and are from the last few seasons

    I've somehow managed to keep my A-P & MAL accounts up-to-date while I was travelling - my anime OCD wouldn't let me forget about them! :giggle:

    Decided to go with Saturn Apartments for my next manga series, can't go wrong with space. :p: Thanks again TroyAndAbed.

    Ah yes, now I remember you mentioning it before. Still, better safe than sorry when it comes to a series like that, wouldn't want anyone who likes shounen to miss out on it. :p:
