It's fine if you don't finish, in fact there have been times when I've just not read completely and no one cares. And yes I was. Seriously.

Okay, thanks. Well, I'm still reading it anyway. I'm almost finished with chapter two. The first chapter was kind of nauseating to me. :p But, at least it seems to be mellowing out a bit for now.

To be honest, I'm still sad that I didn't get to finish Fairy Tale. I only got to read two chapters, then just kept having problems with loading pages. I was getting into it, too. T_T I'll still try to read more, of course, but I'm bummed that I didn't get to finish in time for the club. Yes, I just used the word "bummed" in a sentence. Deal with it. XD

Forty years to finish a series... Not meaning to be morbid, or put priorities out of order, but a person can't even guarantee they'll even be alive in forty years. @_@ I can't imagine taking that long on a project, and especially still being relevant to all my fans who now have kids/ grandkids and got tired of waiting for me.

I like it so far, but I hate having to read long manga series, which is part of the reason I'm so averse to popular shonen (and shojo too, but those are usually much shorter) stuff (the only really well known  shonen manga I really got anywhere in was Fullmetal Alchemist, which I haven't even finished). So I'm kind of a hipster in hat way in that I purposefully avoid popular series. So the TL;DR of that was I probably won't finish Glass Mask even though I'm enjoying it.

Okay, karate kick to the face of the dogs scene made me quit. >.<;


Yeah, I don't like when they continue for so long like that. I really got into Inu Yasha and was disappointed to find 30+ volumes of it and more coming (at the time). 

It seems like the shorter ones (say, around four to six volumes or so) deliver the most impact. Angelic Layer, Magic Knight Rayearth, and Wish, (all from CLAMP), Othello, Pretty Face, Pretear... I know I've read some others. Sailor Moon was  longer than all of those, and still way under 30 volumes, and it was good, too, of course. But the longer they get, the harder it is to keep up with them (and the more expensive it is to finish the series).

Nothing I'm ever going to write is going to stretch out that far. I don't need to spend thirty years of my life on the same manga series. @_@

Or maybe my attention span's just bad. Razz

(If you want a good short shounen series, read Pretty Face. Six volumes.)

I mean, I guess some series need to be long but I just get lost and intimidated by the length. And I'll look up Pretty Face and check it out. I think the other reason why I don't like long series is because the dirt manga I read was Sailor Moon and that's pretty short.

I mean, even "intimidation" is a reasonable motivation to not read a long series. It demands a lot from you-- your time,  your money, your interest-- and there are so many other things you could be reading that will satisfy you in shorter time.

If some kind of circumstance dictated that over a period of time, I'm only allowed to read 30 volumes of manga, how would I choose the spread? Do I want 30 of the same story, or six of one, eight of another, and so on? I'm going to choose all the shorter series, because ultimately I'll get more out of those. I'm the type of person who takes reading seriously-- it isn't just something to pass the time away. To me, reading is not an escape from reality, it's a way to ground me more firmly in reality. I want an education. I want a learning experience. I want my life changed, even in a small way. I want my heart and soul to be touched. I want my mind to process the information for hours, days, or even weeks after I put it down. I want to look at the world differently. The best way for me to do that is by getting different perspectives from different voices, characters which are placed in diverse settings and circumstances, different risks, different solutions, etc. It's just not as likely to happen using all the same characters in the same universe and in the same general conflict.

Sidenote:

How dare you call Sailor Moon dirt, and then come and join a Sailor Moon-oriented fan site. What's wrong with you!?


XD

You meant first, right? XD

Lollll. XD How did I know cell phones would come into this?

I'm officially making "dirt" my new slang term.

"Wow, this TV show is so dirt! It's amazing! You should watch it!"

"You ride a motorcycle? That's so dirt. I wish I could have a motorcycle."

"You won three Olympic gold medals AND found a cure for cancer? WOW you're so dirt! Please marry me!"

"Glass Mask is no fun to read. It's not dirt at all. It's the opposite of dirt. This is so soap. What a soap manga."

Thanks, Addelyn. I might do that.

I am thinking of giving the anime a whirl, though. If I can get out to the library to see it.

That's for Skype, right? Well... I can *try* to be in on it then, but we'll have to see. Our current phone apparently doesn't have a hotspot/ tether option, so I can't get online with my computer. And I can Skype on the phone, just the phone sucks... Razz

Nope not for skype! We aren't doing any livechat discussions for the Manga Club. Just general discussions in the thread.

August's Choices


With The Light: Raising an Autistic Child

Quote :
Born during the sunrise - an auspicious beginning - the Azumas' newborn son is named Hikaru, which means "light". But during one play date, his mother notices that her son is slightly different from the other children. In the alternately heartwarming and bittersweet tale, a young mother tries to cope with both the overwhelming discovery of her child's autism and the trials of raising him while keeping her family together. This is a story that resonates not only for those whose families have been affected by autism, but also for all past, present, and future parents.



King of Thorn

Quote :
Two twins, separated by fatal illness and a selective cure. Kasumi and her sister, Shizuku, were infected with the Medusa virus, which slowly turns the victim to stone. There is no cure, but of the two only Kasumi is selected to go into a sort of cryogenically frozen state along with 159 others until a cure is found. At some point in the undetermined future, Kasumi awakens to find herself and others who were in suspended animation in an unfamiliar world with violent monsters. Resolving to unlock the mysteries of her current situation and the fate of her twin sister, Kasumi struggles to survive in a treacherous world.



One Punch Man

Quote :
Onepunch-Man follows the life of an average hero who manages to win all of his battles with only one punch! This ends up being the cause of a lot of frustration as he no longer feels the thrill and adrenaline of fighting a tough battle.

Maybe all of his rigorous training to become strong wasn't worth it. After all what's so good about having an overwhelming power?



Poll will be up for one week! It ends on 8/8/16!!

Oh man, this was hard. I was torn between the really well known one I hear a lot of people talking about, and a really interesting one. I went with the latter.

Thank you! It was also pretty hard, do I go with one my friend really enjoys or one I find more interesting? I went with the more interesting one. Very excited!

So we have a small problem with "With the Light". There are no online versions available to read that I have been able to find, not even a digital version I could buy and then share with those who do not own it. It was never scanlated before Yen Press published it in the US. :/

If you own this and would like to read and discuss and its a majority of members that do, we can still do it but several us will be unable to do so as we don't have access to the book currently and I don't expect everyone to go out and buy the first volume.

If there is no majority, we will just read "King of Thorn" as its the runner up.

Yeah, With The Light has zero scanlations, but it's easy to find or order on places like Amazon, or you can request them at your local library or buy them if your bookstores have them. I own every volume, so I'm good there, but...yeah, it doesn't have much of an online presence.

I realize that as I had to search for it on google today for it. Razz However we don't want to have to make people buy a manga every month as many of us don't have a lot of money for that. It is $15 on Amazon. I searched my library system and they didn't have it and i'm sure a request would take too long and august will be long past so unless the others that wanted to read it actually own the book or can check it out at their library, I'm gunna have to go with the runner up series.

I unfortunately do not own it or would be willing to buy it, and I'm pretty sure my library wouldn't have it. I'm sure it's good though.

I just tried looking for the series on my normal site. Couldn't find it there either.
Does anyone know the Japanese title so I could try searching that?
