Man, I like reading manga, but I fuckimg hate reading it at pace. I don't read a lot of it, but One Punch Man is taking forever. I'm tempted to wait for it to finish and read it in one go.

I want to know more about gooseberry fool like Blast and gooseberry fool.

I stopped reading the webcomic after ONE just straight up stopped updating it. Lost interest in the manga adaptation not long after.
Any idea if its started up again?

Death Note I have never read either so will give that a go, I’ll read a few chapters of your other suggestions and see what takes my fancy.


I've subbed to the service for a while now and HxH has never been on it :cry:


Is their a reason why? Is it to do with rights or anything or they just haven’t bothered adding it on?

Strange, hopefully one day they will add the series if they see the demand for it.

I notice they don’t have stuff like Shaman King or Yu Yu Hakusho so does seem to be gaps in the collections they have

If Yu Yu Hakusho isn't on there either, it could be something to do with the Togashi not allowing it.

If he even has that kind of sway, I dunno if Shueisha would own the rights or whatever.

Hunter X Hunter was available to read weekly on MangaPlus and the first/last 3 chapters are there now, but as there is no premium option atm I don't know if it will be available if or when that launches.

The webcomic started back up again a while after Mob Psycho 100 and the Reigen spinoff ended. Not been many chapters though and still quite infrequent.

I did the same as you but yet to bother getting back into it, the padding in the Murata version has really burned me out.

I dunno if any of you folks watched Love Live at all, but ProZD recently released a video ranking all the main characters.

I've never seen it so I've got no skin in the game, but my missus is about as angry as I've ever seen her, and it's hilarious. :lol:

I absolutely adored this weeks chapter of Witch Watch. Such a goofy feel good chapter and if this is what the series is going to be like going forward I'm all in. :oops:

There's a new JoJo on Netflix. It's called Thus Spoke Kishbe Rohan. I've still not finished Diamond Is Unbreakable, so I won't be starting on it just yet.

Funimation will be giving away 90-day trials toward the end of March. (March 25th, I think.)

Started watching Highrise Invasion on Netflix and despite my initial misgivings during the first episode which almost made me switch it off main protaganist being a schoolgirl in a short skirt who within the first 10 minutes almost gets raped by a policeman but saved before anything truly nasty happens its a fairly interesting take on the Battle Royale formula.

Only seen three episodes atm but so far there's been nothing overly problematic.

Didn't realise they were even making an anime of that. I tried reading it a few years ago but lost my place when I had to wipe my data and didn't back things up. :fp:

And done.

Only 12 episodes in S1 (assuming there'll be more) so fairly easy to binge the lot (and you will).

Really good series, like the whole concept and setting.

Anyone else here with a paid sub to Shonen Jump Online having trouble accessing paid for content? I'm paid up but all of a sudden it's not allowing me to access older chapters (of anything) and is instead showing me the yellow join to read button :fp: I've tried logging out and back in.

I just opened the app and tried to read a few random Yu-Gi-Oh chapters and it let me into all of them. I just get the green "Read" button with the open padlock icon.

What series in particular are you trying and seeing issues with?

Ta for checking.

Did it actually let you read the manga? I ask because I'm seeing the green padlock on the long chapter list, but once I click on an issue I get the yellow locked padlock. I was reading One Piece 265 when it happened. Except for the freebies, it won't let me read anything else.

My membership is showing as active, and I've got more than enough chapters remaining before I hit the daily limit.
