PostSubject: Shōnen Manga Club    25th January 2015, 3:09 pm


Welcome to the brand new Shōnen Manga Club, run by Addelyn and Miss Moon Rose! The purpose of this club is to read and discuss various shonen manga! 

What is shōnen, you may ask? Well, here's a handy little definition!

Shōnen wrote:
A genre of Japanese comics and animated films aimed primarily at a young male audience, typically characterized by action-filled plots.


F.A.Q.

How is the club going to operate? 
The club is going to operate on a monthly schedule. The first two weeks of the month you will be reading the first volume of the manga, and the last two weeks of the month will be the discussion period. Over the last few days of the month, we will have voting and suggestions for the next month's manga.

How can I join? Can I join at any point? 
All you need to do in order to join is just make a quick post saying you would like to join us! Also, when you join, feel free to give us a suggestion to add to the suggestion bank! Only one suggestion per member, please. Once you join, you get this nifty little bumper to put in your signature! You may join at any point, and leave whenever you feel you cannot keep up.



Are there any rules? 
I'm so glad you asked! Yes, there are rules. Not only will be in compliance with the Forum Rules, but we also have a few additional ones for the club outlined below!


  1. Keep all discussions PG-13
  2. Be respectful of others' opinions
  3. Spoiler tags are to be used when you are making a comment about the manga when it is not the official discussion period. This being said, there is a 3 strike system with the spoilers. You reach your third strike and you will be removed from the club. 
  4. Please don't complain about the manga of the month. We realize that not every single book is going to be to everyone's liking, but the purpose of the club is to offer a wide variety of books to expose people to the genre. 



How are manga picked? 
At the end of every month, we will take some suggestions that you, the lovely club members, have given us and we will put up a poll. Then you guys get to vote and decide what we read next month!

How much of the manga will we be reading? 
Generally about 1 volume of the manga a month. If the volume is small, we may decide to read two volumes in order to have enough material to have a good discussion. Don't worry, we'll always let you know how much to read, although you are always welcome to read more, just keep in mind that any of that information would be considered a spoiler and needs to be put under a spoiler tag, even during the discussion period. 

I really, really like the manga we're reading, can we please continue? 
If there is enough interest in continuing, we would consider hosting the manga for another month. If not, we will be moving on and then it's up to you to read it on your own time!

May's Manga:


Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack on Titan) by Isayama Hajime wrote:

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the city walls is damaged by a 60 meter giant causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as Eren's mother is eaten alive.Unable to save her , Eren vows that he will wipe out every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Where to read Attack on Titan:
Manga Reader

You have until Sunday, May 31st to finish reading! Discussion will open on June 1st!

Hey since its the 15th I'm gunna say a few things. I really enjoy this manga a lot. It reminds me of Dragonball so much, its just a fun read. It doesn't take itself too seriously and has a great amount of action as the story progresses. Luffy is a hoot and makes me laugh. I'm glad we started off with this series because its just a great shonen series with just an sense of adventure and fun. Now I gotta finish reading it (last time i read it, i got to up to nearly the 500th chapter and just stopped. D: ).

I wish I could say more about Rorona and Nami but since they were just introduced at the end of the first volume I don't wanna say much (plus its been a few years and I don't remember that much about them xD).

I went ahead and reread the first volume for this discussion! (I actually own all of One Piece because of course I do.)

It's interesting to see how amateur yet incredible One Piece was in its first volume. The first chapter is absolutely phenomenal in its storytelling. It's baffling to see how almost anti-shonen it is, what with strength being demonstrated through will rather than brawling outright. It's not hard too see why so many people like Shanks, even though he's only really prominently figured in this chapter. The character is fantastic and very likeable, almost to the point where I was sad to see him go at the end.

As for the rest of the volume it's... well, it's OK. One Piece never really gets to the epic that it is until some volumes after this. The most interesting bit I found was that Coby referred to Luffy eating from the "Gum-Gum Tree." Originally, Luffy's fruit was supposed to be a one of a kind thing. It didn't turn into a Devil Fruit until Buggy came along.

Well, the series is pretty much, from book one anyways, a typical person can see ghosts but nobody else can until they meet someone else trope. Kind of reminds me of a series called yurara and bleach put together, only with a bit more of tokyo Babylon evil spirit type action.  
Anyways, onto the characters.
The "kiss scene" was the dumbest thing I have ever seen. He gets hit by a motorbike, and he just "happens" to fly by her face and their lips touch? That is grasping at straws man. Also, he was able to get up and run after being smashed into a vending machine? What are his bones, steel? Insert a bunch of panty shots here, sexual tension during battles that are out of place there, and we have some quick and random battles that seem to be started or worsened by some demon three eyed kimono lady named yomi. I wasn't too impressed with this one. It was too face paced, and the main male character Kensuke is so unoriginal and flat I can't stand it.  
All I can say is Kagura's spiritual familiar is badass and reminds me of haku from spirited away.
