I decided to buy Trinity Seven & Blade Dance of the Elementalers manga and add it to my small list of manga titles.

Re: What manga have you read or/are currently reading?

I am really enjoying Trinity Seven Manga, I can't believe their was only three volumes of Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows I didn't notice until I was done reading the third volume.

As much as I like some animes that are based on mangas I think they might be hard to keep me interested in reading them like High School DXD, Dragonar Academy, The Sacred Blacksmith, Freezing and a few others.

Manga Titles I bought:

A Certain Magical Index
A Certain Scientific Accelerator
A Certain Scientific Railgun
Angel Beats
Blade Dance of the Elementalers
Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace
Rosario+Vampire Season I and II boxset
Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows
Trinity Seven

Does anyone else buy the print mangas? I'm not even going bother reading digital versions of mangas.

You should check out Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches. I think you'd probably like it. The USA manga release is up to Volume 8, and new volumes come out about every 2 months. They're up to Volume 23 in Japan.

If you want to give it a shot before buying, it's available on Crunchyroll Manga.

Re: What manga have you read or/are currently reading?

Lately I've been reading Boku no Hero Academia. It's a fun manga. And I'm glad to see the anime is getting a 2nd season.

I'm sad that Nisekoi is coming to an end. Even though they're taking their time and dragging it out, it's definitely ending. All the open plotholes are being tied up one by one. Everyone's getting their final moments. I still don't know who'll be the last girl standing. I'm on Team Chitoge. Onodera is sweet, but she can always fall back on her side job as a magical girl.

They seem to be reaching the end game on Nisekoi but they still have like a year left in high school, which seems odd to me. Maybe it'll be like Bleach and just drag out the last arc forever. I kinda doubt it'll be Onodera though, just because they're hammering you over the head with her at this point.

Just marathoned "I am a hero" until I caught up. Such an odd start, though it really works, and it's just brutal.

Just two more weeks of Nisekoi. It'll end in the Shonen Jump 36/37 double feature.

When he got a new editor, people thought it was going to go on for another arc, but obviously he's made his choice already, which I won't spoil here. With this, Toriko fast forwarding to an end in a race against cancellation, and Gintama also ending soon, they need to find something new for Shonen Jump soon. Oh yeah Bleach is ending but it's been "ending" for over four years now and is nigh incomprehensible.

Caught up on Gunslinger Girls manga. I know it's bit late, but somehow I didn't follow up after original volume 6 (not Ominibus Collection). So, I bought few Ominibus collections and just finished Ominibus Collection #6 (volume 13-14) and it was damn brutal story (especially volume 14).

Since Rightstuf doesn't have Gunslinger Girl's finale manga (volume 15), I had to hunt it down and found it - not cheap :-/ and it's on the way.

Wow, first back to back post.

I have been reading Fairy Tail on Crunchyroll and I noticed that it's getting almost to the end. Anyone who is reading in Japanese side, how many issue left? (503 is most recently in Crunchyroll).

Crunchyroll is up to date (at most a week behind because some scans get released early).

I dunno, maybe this is the last arc for Fairy Tail, maybe not but they still have a lot of stuff to wrap up: the current conflict still has the two main generals plus the leader, and then there's Acnologia after.

? Crunchyroll translates it as the Japanese version comes out. Unless I'm misunderstanding you somehow.

According to Fairy Tail wiki - it's now issue 505. So, you may be right, they translate it as soon as new issue come out.

The reason I asked - some English version of manga are way behind (I know Japanese-language Baby Step is couple issues ahead of English translated). I was wondering about how far apart between Japanese language and English Language.

Ah gotcha. Online stuff like Shonen Jump and the Crunchyroll stuff are pretty much in line with Japanese releases, similar to Crunchyroll anime simulcasts, because otherwise they couldn't even pretend to compete with scanlations. The collections are usually a bit behind still.

Re: What manga have you read or/are currently reading?

I've been reading the manga and web novel for Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear. It's a light and breezy OP MC Isekai. I think the manga has been licensed for the US. The anime was just announced last week. Should come out later this year.
