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.

Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
