I don't read manga as often. Due to major news of Crunchyroll removing completed Kodansha titles from their library by Feb. 1 and older chapters of ongoing Kodansha titles by March 1, 2018 and only new chapters will be added.
I have to read heavily.
Feb. 24, 2018 A Silent Voice Ch. 1 - 1.5 = Rating: 7 Ajin Ch. 1-30 = Rating: 7 The Legend of Arslan Ch. 53 = Rating: 7 Yamada and the Seven Witches Ch. 231-235 = Rating: 7
Trinity Wonder was okay... looks like it got cancelled or became inactive. 5/10 Gosu - I like it so far, 6.5/10
Planning to read: Tower of God (I started reading it awhile ago but dropped it, need to pick it back up) Death March Kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku Flame of Recca Defense Devil Blood Lad (last on my list)
"No matter what happens...I shall gift this world and the world beyond with apocalypse..."
Bloody Monday - How I came to read this, it was through a recommendation on a J-drama site. The 2006 live action Death Note movie had the Bloody Monday live action drama as a recommendation, so as per my unusual OCD habit, I decided to read the manga while watching the TV adaptation.
So far, it's okay. Has a few shounen manga tropes you'd recognize, like the comic relief, the tsundere girl who knows karate, that kind of stuff. The manga seems to focus more on the main characters' friends than the drama - which makes sense, since the demographics are different, the manga being shounen audiences.
Not too sure whether I'll keep reading. When I first learned what the story is really about - hacking and political espionage - I felt like this isn't the kind of story I'd be interested in. Detective stories like Death Note and Detective Conan are okay because they are at least mysteries I could understand and comprehend the logic of. Whereas with hacking and computer jargon... meh. That's why I didn't bother watching Mr. Robot.
The J-drama, on the other hand, does intrigue me more though, since it's more intense and dramatic, the pacing much tighter than the manga too. But I still have to wait and see, for both the manga and the drama.
Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE - This one's more interesting because of the different worlds the characters would travel to. Definitely writing a review for this one if I ever finish it.
Mar 28 Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE - ch. 43-49, the closing of the Oto arc. Rating = 8/10 A true cliffhanger for once that disrupts the formula of the plot.
Bloody Monday - ch. 29-30, dropped. I've been meaning to drop this manga for a while because it's so boring in spite of its attempt at mind games. Stories about hacking just don't work for me, it seems. Definitely nothing like the much more fun Death Note, where we get to see the creative and amusing ways Light escapes L's suspicions.

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.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
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.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
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.
