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: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.
Jul 2, 2020 2:15:07 GMT
Dream: Done with TTM. See if I can get a review for it up sometime tonight.

almatorran: Good day everyone!

Taka: Happy 4th of July to those who live in the states!

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.
Jul 8, 2020 14:20:06 GMT
Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
Jul 9, 2020 3:27:17 GMT
Dream: Believe GXP was pulled from Funi's streaming site last year because their digital rights to the series expired. But you should still be able to stream War on Geminar on their site.
Jul 9, 2020 13:36:38 GMT
Taka: Darn, for some reason I thought it was still there. I finished Geminar. Well, I guess I proceed and watch the rest of those OVAs on CR.
Jul 10, 2020 1:37:08 GMT
Taka: I think I can write a review on Geminar. I wished I made a discussion thread and kept notes on it. I tend to forget small details and make mistakes when interpreting character actions.
