I was wondering what to make, but I have been hesistant in making new threads because I remember seeing an issue in Screened when Acura Max and I were making discussion threads for Screened. Since there were not much activity on discussion threads, folks ask us to stop making discussion threads for Screened because it reminded them how empty it was.
Manga discussion forum is active but only in a few threads. It's not dead. However, obscure shows and monthly franchises are not as active compared to the battle, weekly shonen series' discussion threads.
I'm not an avid manga reader. I'm a heavy anime watcher.
Thanks for the advice. I will ask you to try to capitalize your titles and fix the format a bit in your threads. You should prioritize active manga series rather than the inactive ones due to them getting more comments generally.
New manga series - I don't think we have a name for this.
Ah My Buddha's Toshinori Sogabe Launches New Scrapped Princess Manga
Kadokawa's Comic Clear website launched a new manga based on the Scrapped Princess novels by Ichiro Sakaki (Chaika the Coffin Princess, Outbreak Company) on October 14. Toshinori Sogabe (Ah My Buddha, Amaenaideyo!!) is illustrating the series based on Yukinobu Asami's original character designs.
The series' first chapter is available for free on the Comic Clear website. The next chapter will debut on November 11.
Tokyopop previously published all three volumes of Go Yabuki's 2002 manga adaptation in English. Tokyopop also published part of Sakaki's original novel series, and described the story of the first novel:
Fourteen years ago, a dark and devastating prophecy was revealed: a girl will bring about destruction and death and the world will lie in ruins. A decree was handed down to destroy this baby girl and all evidence of her prophecy to come but despite all efforts, the myth lives on...and so does the Lost Princess. Fourteen years later, the prophesized destroyer of the world is alive and well! Will she doom all and destroy the world or will she defy the gods and prove them wrong?
Sakaki published the original 13-novel series and the 5-volume Scrapped Princess Supplement series from 1999-2005. The novels inspired an anime adaptation in 2003 from Studio BONES. Bandai Entertainment released the series in North America, but its license expired in 2011.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.

Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
