Kami no Toride
By Osamu Tezuka


Autobiographical work by Tezuka of the post-war years, would love to get a look at it!

Fumiko Takano is a big deal -- a real artist's artist. Yet I've read next to nothing by her, and I'm looking to remedy that. I'll take any of her books that you can find scans of, but for starters I'll request this particular one.

Winny Club / Kamui-den vol.01-15 complete / Dainibu vol.01-20 complete
« on: October 05, 2014, 06:35:42 AM »

"The story of a young boy Kamui growing up to become a ninja. His life of training ends when he realizes that he doesn't want to be a ninja and decides to become a nukenin (outlaw ninja), someone who is not affiliated with an organization and is hunted for leaving the clan..."

Looking for the original Kamui-den series, as opposed to Kamui Gaiden (although I'll want to read that eventually as well, so if someone wants to upload that as well, that'd be very cool!)

Stopper Busujima
By Harold Sakuishi

Man, remember this manga? It's still great. I'll take this over The Seven Shakespeares any day.

Quote from: Mangascreener
A professional baseball manga by Harold Sakuishi, the author of Beck.

Taiko Busujima is a powerful young pitcher looking to make it into the Japanese big leagues, but what he didn't count on was being signed to the Keihin Athletics, the cheapest and worst team in the league. Can he help turn the Athletics around and (gasp) win the pennant?

A gripping, edge-of-your-seat story loaded with Sakuishi's brand of wacky humor.

Bataashi Kingyo ("Flutter-kick Goldfish")
By Minetarou Mochizuki

Before Dragon Head, Mochizuki had already made a name for himself in the 80s with this comedy about a high-school student who joins the swimming club in order to impress a girl. The art's much cruder than it is in his later work, but it definitely has its own appeal. This manga has aged very nicely -- I think it's probably best compared to Minoru Furuya's work (post Inachuu Ping Pong Club, natch) rather than Dragon Head or Shark-skin Man and Peach-butt Girl, so if you're into Green Hill and Ciguatera and all that jazz, you'll probably dig this, too.

24 no Hitomi
By Kei Kurashima

An episodic comedy manga about a junior high school teacher who loves to stir up trouble through her pathological lying. It's a solid (if basic) manzai comedy, recommended for fans of Zetsubou-sensei in particular (it must be admitted that it can't actually top Zetsubou-sensei, though; Kouji Kumeta is inimitable).

Office Hokkyokusei ("Office North Star")
By Shinji Makari (story) and Masaaki Nakayama (art)

A NYC-based legal drama featuring Goushi Tokita, a canny long-time resident who decides to start up a risk management agency in order to help naive Japanese companies and entrepreneurs (among others) navigate the rough-and-tumble world of American litigation.

The guy in charge of the story is the guy who did Yugo, while the artist is the guy who did Fuan no Tane.

Torokeru Tekkoujo
By Munehiro Nomura

Somehow this doesn't appear to have been uploaded here yet, despite having become something of an unexpected hit since the first two volumes came out a couple of years ago. Before getting into the manga biz, the artist behind this manga used to work at an iron factory, and he decided to wring that experience dry in order to produce this break-out hit about an iron factory in Hiroshima. Chapters are very short (4 pages) and extremely dense with trivia about what goes on in the factory workers' lives (both in and out of the factory), and the art is quite stylized and pretty much adorable.

Henshuu Ou
By Seiki Tsuchida

Back in the 90s, when Bakuman was still a twinkle in Tsugumi Ohba's eye, Seiki Tsuchida made something of a splash with Henshuu Ou, a manga that revealed the horrors plaguing the manga industry before it was cool to for manga to do so. It turns out that it's still totally great, I dare say a must-read for manga dorks everywhere (who among us here isn't interested in learning more about how manga actually gets made?). Here's the synopsis from Bakaupdates:

Quote
A former boxer from a rural town, Kanpachi Momoi becomes an editor at a Shounen Jump-like magazine (Weekly Young Shout) and brings along his own way of viewing things to his new job.

Samehada Otoko to Momojiri Onna
By Minetarou Mochizuki

Some people will already be familiar with this one, I think, from the movie that was based on it. It's a one-volume deal, with a simple story: a badass mafioso decides to betray his organization, taking a big ol' briefcase full of its money and running off with it. The betrayed yakuza group naturally proceeds to hunt him down, get the money back and kill him. Along the way, he bumps into a girl who is living a rather miserable life out in the woods, working at a hotel under her lecherous uncle, and she gets mixed up into the whole thing. Naturally, the girl is smoking hot once you take off her glasses and let down her hair. This book was clearly drawn as a tribute to a certain kind of movie, although I don't really get to see enough movies to be able to give any examples. Reminds me a lot of Denis Johnson's recent novel (novella?) Nobody Move.

A fun ride.

Chin-fujin no Ryourinin ("Lady Shen's Chef")
By Rinko Fukami

An episodic series that takes place in Ming Dynasty China, featuring an aristocrat named Lady Shen and her extremely submissive chef, Lee San. She likes to foist unreasonable demands on him, just because she gets a rise out of watching him squirm as he desperately tries to please her. It's never openly sexual, but there's definitely an S&M undercurrent going on here, which is part of the reason this is worth checking out -- the other part being that Chinese food is utter win.

Kangaeru Samurai / Yaa!
By Yoshihiro Yamada

Before he achieved popularity with Decathlon, Yoshihiro Yamada drew a bunch of shorter manga. This book contains two of those manga, plus a bonus one-shot. This is probably one of those books that only I and a handful of Yamada fans will ever love, but I'll post it here anyway.

The first story in here is called "Kangaeru Samurai", or in English, "The Thinking Samurai". In a lot of ways, he's a typical enough samurai, doing all the cliche samurai stuff, with a twist: He tends to look at the world through a philosophical lens. He references Socrates while cutting a man in two. He banters with a would-be assassin about the French revolution. He's totally badass.

The second story is called "Yaa!", and it tells the story of an office full of rather colorful employees. One acts according to some sort of office bushido, repeatedly offering to commit ritual suicide in order to atone for some small mistake; another is deeply depressed, incapable of laughter, and considering suicide. And then there's the man who they both, in a way, fall in love with...

About a clumsy goddess who accidentally drops her magical ladle in the human world. A precocious and somewhat mean-spirited boy stumbles across it and refuses to return it to the goddess, instead deciding to use the ladle's magic powers for mischief.

Gunmania
By Kouta Hirano

You may recall that the artist behind Hellsing recently started a new series called Assassine, featuring a character named Eiji Bandou, a delightfully psychopathic gun-for-hire. Well, it turns out he had already run a few one-shot stories about Bandou ten years ago, under the title Gunmania. These chapters are to Assassine as Crossfire was to Hellsing, I guess.

Decathlon
By Yoshihiro Yamada



From the man who brought you Hyougemono: A goofy country yokel shows up to the Japanese Decathlon Championship. He is absolutely clueless about the finer points of the sport... and yet, he keeps beating everybody else. Great characters, great art (in my opinion), and a lot of gaping mouths ensue.

The premise behind this sounds pretty plain, I realize, but I swear this manga is great. That's why I had to share it.

By Shimoku Kio



Something of a side-project by Shimoku Kio, combining his two big interests: otaku and babies. Chapters are short, infrequent, and delicious.

Assassine
by Kohta Hirano

A new manga by the dude who brought us Hellsing and Drifters -- if you like those two series, this should be a no-brainer for you. Basically, it's about a bunch of organized crime bosses pitting assassins against each other and betting on who kills who first. It's just getting started, so I can't say much beyond that. It's clearly more of a side project for Hirano compared to Drifters, but it's still guaranteed to be a fun ride for however long it lasts. Now's the time to hop on the bandwagon, folks.



Let's do this thang.

Winny Club / Koukou Kyuuji Zawa-san, v09+
« on: August 08, 2009, 07:07:05 AM »
Koukou Kyuuji Zawa-san ('Zawa-san the High School Baseball Player')
By Eriko Mishima



A new series by a new author. It follows a girl ('Zawa', short for her surname, Miyakozawa) in a high school baseball team who's sort of in a position similar to Aoba in Cross Game -- she's talented, but being a girl, she doesn't get to participate in any official matches, and yet she trains just as hard as the rest of the team anyway, just for her own personal satisfaction. However, whereas Adachi tends to tackle Aoba's plight with low-key drama, Zawa-san is instead aimed as a low-key, slice-of-life comedy. Chapters are very short -- I think the longest one in the first volume is 11 pages -- and are frequently done from the perspective of some passer-by/s interacting with or even just watching and contemplating to themselves about Zawa and/or the rest of the baseball team. With any luck, scans of the second volume, which is already out in Japan, will surface in due time -- I know I for one am looking forward to it after this first volume, anyway.

Koi no Mon ("The Gates of Love")
By Jun Hanyunyu



Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

A story about a penniless, super avant-garde, would-be manga artist and a cosplaying, doujinshi-drawing, hardcore otaku who fall in love. Hideki Arai described its characters as "delicious".

It's been a year since I've read it, but I remember quite liking it. Full disclosure, though: a lot of people are going to find the artwork hideous to the point of making the manga unfit for consumption. I should also mention that it inspired a live action movie, but I wouldn't recommend that, myself.

By Haruko Kashiwagi



Stars a female college student with a pretty intense sex drive who has an "H mode" not unlike Rena from Otogi no Machi no Rena, though with a great twist: she's only able to enjoy the sex when she has no romantic feelings for the partner. She used to use her sister's pet dog as her sexual outlet, but the dog has recently died, and being a penniless college student, she can't really afford to buy a new one for herself... which is where the gutless, dorky guy who has a crush on her comes in. He's looking for a girlfriend, but she only seems him as a replacement for the dog; hijinks and sexy times ensue, etc. etc.
