    eManga is releasing most of DMP's Tezuka licenses digitally. :coma: Greatly appreciated, considering how expensive paperback copies of Barbara are these days! And they're offering 10% off your next order for anyone who buys one of said titles - too good an offer for me to miss out on, so I bought Yuusha Dan.

    I recently started collecting My little monster and Deadman Wonderland after discovering they had been completed.

    I've also been eyeing up The Flowers of Evil, and last night I've discovered Sankarea which I've been thinking about for a while is complete. I've decided to try and focus more on completed manga for now- I'm also mulling over Soul Eater as I liked the anime way back when.

    I'm really enjoying The Flowers of Evil. Just waiting for volume 11 in October so I can see how it concludes!

    I'm trying to focus more on completed manga as well. I don't think I can handle starting another never-ending shounen series...

    :ditto: The Flowers of Evil, I hope the ending lives up to the rest of the series!

    You'd have thought I'd have learned my lesson about ongoing manga series (either unfinished in Japan, or simply not fully published here yet), seeing how so many of those I've collected over the years have ended up dropped, or victims of publishers going bust... I haven't, though. Fifteen of the twenty series I'm following aren't fully available in English, and the waits between releases for some of them are quite painful. :sadnod:

    I've yet to be affected by a publisher going bust/dropping a title but I'm always wary. It's always a relief to hold the final volume in your hands. I'm pretty sure Eyeshield 21 wasn't doing well for Viz so I was glad they reached the final volume. The waits can be annoying too. I don't think there's been a new volume of Yotsuba&! for about a year and the next one isn't even out in Japan yet so that's a long way off. Luckily it's fairly episodic so nothing to really remember in terms of plot.

    Yotsuba&! Is one of the series I'm collecting, and yes, not having to remember the plot makes it a little easier. It's also been over a year since the last release of the Spice & Wolf manga, but having read the light novels and watched the anime adaptations, I should be fine with that too. Loveless, I'm more worried about...

    The longest breaks I've had to put up with in the past were for Shoulder a Coffin Kuro (four year wait between vol 2 and 3, and two more years for vol 4 due to intermittent releases in Japan), and Gunslinger Girl (four year wait between ADV's last release and Seven Seas taking over publication). Oh, and Elemental Gelade, but that was due to my own stubborn refusal to give DMG's digital-only releases a chance until years after they rescued it from Tokyopop.

    Can't complain too much though - at least they got resumed (unlike Maria+Holic :bawling:)

    Carrying on from the above subject, Claymore is ending! :zomg: That's an ongoing series I've been considering starting for a while, especially now that I can read it on Kindle so don't have to find space for 26+ volumes. :p: Might have to move it up my priorities list now!

    Every time a manga or anime series ends, another will quickly replace it in its magazine/TV slot. :p:

    Well there's that too I've gotten back into anime and manga a lot over the last few weeks. Really love some series. Happy knowing there's more out there that I haven't discovered and also more to be made

    I love it so much . I'm team Killua.

    I saw the 1999 version but instead of watching the OVAs and then jumping to the 2011 version like someone suggested, I just watched the 2011 version from the top .
    I read some of the manga after but it sucks imo. I hope this hiatus isn't permanent like bleach -_-. It's so awesome.

    Not sure what to watch now tbh. Hopefully something dubbed. I want to be able to utilize my 2nd screen and watch stuff while doing work .

    I've been following it since the first episode aired (the 2011 series, that is), and it remains one of my favourite ongoing series... not sure how I'll fill the void when it ends in a few weeks. :no:

    And it's not that I don't like mainstream series, I just don't give them priority over anything else simply because they're mainstream. If something sounds good, I'll watch it regardless of how popular it is. :yes:

    Oh? I didn't realise it's ending. Are they not going to go into the exploration arc?
    Well that's a shame. I thought it was going to be very much like DB, given the premise and the tournament but I'm glad it took things its own way .

    Oh right, I see what you mean! I'm at a loss for what to watch now but I'll look around. I might try that sight that gives you suggestions based on what you like the most .

    Edit: site, sorry.

    I've watched it all haha :laugh: I was happy when the 2011 came out as it's now further on in line with the manga :teeth: Big fan of shounen and HxH is right up there as my favourites. I'm a Gon fan myself

    When I said it sucks, I was referring to the art style. The other things are alright. It was just annoying to read/look at.

    Maybe? Checking out the wiki now .

    Ah I see. I know what you mean then

    Pretty sure I watched Golden Boy dubbed. It's a bit old but rather funny series dubbed and not too long

    Anything shounen really. Fighting. Special powers. Romance. Slice of Life.

    Magic series :beard:

    Outside of the current Mahouka Koukou no Rettousai...hmm...Negima? I dunno if there's a dubbed version. If this a dubbed+magic request.

    Although...if you were looking for a manga...I can say Mx0 is a good one.

    I dunno :ahee:

    Fair enough. I do love me some shounen even though I'm gay.

    Is Mahouka dubbed? I need to check it out. Looks awesome .

    I've already read Negima. Big fan . I'm even reading the sequel "UQ holder". The creator was featured on that awful video that insinuated that anime=child porn.

    Gracias.
