"Kyō wa Kaisha Yasumimasu." sounds really interesting, I'll keep my eyes open for that one.

Is pochamani any good?
I need some good shoujo manga. Anyone have recommendation? Currently reading tonari kaibutsu kun, kamisama hajimemshita, ao haru ride, Horimiya

I recommend Last Game XD! That manga is epic XD! Orange (by Takano Ichigo) and Hibi Chouchour are pretty good too :D. But if you want to read some josei with a fantastic and deep plot then you should read Honey and Clover ^^
riringo 5th-Feb-2013 05:15 pm (UTC)
ahaa.. looks like we have the same taste of manga ^^
je_annne 6th-Feb-2013 01:07 am (UTC)
Really :D? The if you're interested, I'm also reading Ah! Itoshi no Banchousama and Stand Up!!! (by Kumagai Kyoko):). You should definitely read them X)!

hha yes I've read it some time ago, I don't really remember the story though
because they are not in the list of my favorites :p
arashic5 9th-Feb-2013 02:31 am (UTC)
I read the opening chapter of last game, just wondering, will it continue like that? the girl always be oblivious? if so, I think I'll pas :(
je_annne 9th-Feb-2013 12:51 pm (UTC)
well that's just how her personality is so to answer your question yes. BUT as you read along you'll see that she'll change as the story progress ^^. Also, her personality (and of course Yanagi's personality asa wel ;)) is what makes this manga interesting :D. This is a must read manga so I suggest you read it :D! I assure you that it will be worth the time :)
arashic5 9th-Feb-2013 03:23 pm (UTC)
I'll give it another go

Thanks :)

I think Pochamani is kinda unique..
the story is about a popular boy who likes soft and squishy things and someone who likes chubby people (A LOT).
Ofcourse the heroine girl has a chubby body, but she has a positive attitude and liked by many people
so far it's a good story, but there are only three chapters availabe (in english) so I haven't been able to judge further

I have so many recommendation about shoujo manga ^^ but I don't know if it suite your taste or not..
my recent favorite (other than those you mentioned : kaibutsu, aoharu and horimiya) hibi chouchou, orange (takano ichigo), last game, akatsuki no yona, gakuen baby sitters, love so life, koi dano ai dano, kanojo wa uso wo aishisugiteru
sawakonotsadako 6th-Feb-2013 02:55 am (UTC)
since you mentioned gakuen babysitters..has there been any progress in terms of romance. i stopped around chapter 10.
arashic5 9th-Feb-2013 02:42 am (UTC)
hibi chouchou is so cute, but its progressing so slow
orange is a masterpiece, seriously. I need new chapters
love so life is about the girl becoming some kind of a baby sitter right? havent got the time to read it
anyway thanks!

NANA, even though it's paused right now
arashic5 9th-Feb-2013 02:43 am (UTC)
Already read it, and frustrated that its not coming back any time soon :(((
nozo_rin 5th-Feb-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
I think it's really cute and funny. It's ongoing so only 3 chapters are out atm
riringo 5th-Feb-2013 05:28 pm (UTC)
some of them are in my reading list

Ore Monogatari!! : unusual lead male role for shoujo manga xDD
MIX : made by my favourite mangaka Adachi-san ^^
Shiki no Zenjitsu : compilation of slice of life oneshots
Pochamani : (copy from my comment above) the story is about a popular boy who likes soft and squishy things and someone who likes chubby people (A LOT).

will add Kyō wa Kaisha Yasumimasu to my wish list

Kami-sama no Iutōri is AWESOME.
kinari_pamyu 5th-Feb-2013 07:32 pm (UTC)
I really hope Haikyuu gets an anime. I'm working my way through the manga now and it's pretty cute/fun.
age_of_green 5th-Feb-2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
Kyō wa Kaisha Yasumimasu and Shiki no Zenjitsu look good. I'll look out for English translations.
riringo 6th-Feb-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
I think no one has released a scanlation of Kyo wa Kaisha Yasumimasu
royu_kiyo 5th-Feb-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
Dang, I haven't heard of any of these. You anyone recommend these to me? I usually read Shonen Jump titles and some weird stuff like Seikon no Qwaser and Mysterious Girlfriend X.
kathleeness 6th-Feb-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
Assassination Classroom(#1) and Haikyu!(#4) are from shounen jump. :)
royu_kiyo 6th-Feb-2013 01:40 am (UTC)
Sweet, will check to see if scanlations have been made for these.

Edit: just read the first chapter of Assassination Classroom, adding it to my readlist. Thanks.
