Aww. Was he needed back on his homeworld?

Today is a good day for SDL manga.

Dagashi Kashi has no Hotaru today, however it's worth it for the sudden obsession with that ball-and-cup game.
Takkeo-Chan brings in a new character, a yokai hunter who kind of reminds me of Seiichiro Kitano from Legend of an Angel, mixed with a good helping of the dumb-yet-honest fellow from Love Roma (a good manga, you guys should read it!)
And finally another chapter of that maid-dragon manga someone linked once -- I think it was Captain Invictus?

I'm missing Seki-Kun, though. I hope someone picks it up, or the group gets back to scanlating it!

His Cat manga is hilariously surreal, if only for the fact of completely ordinary life things being depicted 100% Junji Ito style.

I've been lax! I haven't posted all the neat stuff that've been uploaded since Christmas! Does anyone even follow Saiki Kusuo besides me??

Saiki Kusuo is released every week in WSJ, right? Which means translators are really far behind? (edit: Jesus it apparently has 15 volumes out in Japan, so it's super far behind in translations)

If so, it's a shame because that comic is hilarious and I also really like it.

It's really a drat shame, even if every week it basically repeats the same theme kind of joke, it does it really well. Saiki vs. the World.

I think that scanlators ignore it because it doesn't have mo girls flashing their panties.

Saiki got three movies, but he removed them from your mind because he was animated by Gonzo.

Due to some poor life decisions on my part (all of it) I haven't actually been able to read much manga lately. I'm trying to make up for it by occasionally drowning the chat thread in Sayman drawings, but it's just not the same.
On the bright side, I did just find this so I figured I'd share the good stuff:

Yeah, and aside from what I posted, I don't think there's been much output since Hana & Alice finished, so that's not changing anytime soon. I'm pretty much just saving character sketches from his twitter these past few months. That said, maybe he's just been really busy with planning his fun trip abroad!

Since I've run out of Flying Witch, I started on Dead Dead Demon's DeDeDeDeDestruction. I suppose it counts as surreal daily life? In any case, it's really fantastic so far.

I really love that crazy drooling girl with the pigtails. She's off in her own world, but I get the feeling she'll save them all. Incidentally I really need to read Asano's other things. I've heard Punpun was good, but that it was also kind of sad or depressing, and I'm not in a mood for that. How's Solanin?

a kitten
Aug 5, 2006



Fallen Rib

Solanin is great, however it does deal with loss and grief so it might not be what you're looking for right now. And, unlike a lot of his other stuff, it doesn't have any odd or otherworldly twists to it. Nijigahara Holograph is also fantastic, and definitely has some Weird poo poo going on, but is very emotionally heavy . Both are easily purchasable. I haven't read Goodnight, Punpun yet, I might grab volume one now that it's out (or coming out soon, I forget)

Dude doesn't really do "happy" though.

If you feel it's surreal and daily life, post it! Quirky comedies like ULTIMATE CUTIE TROLL MASTER Takagi-San also fit. If it has stuff like a character who's actually a robot, Freddy Mercury, and a gorilla, and people just roll with it like it's no big deal -- it fits! If it's about a ventriloquist with a human-sized puppet of a girl that everyone seems to accept as a high schooler -- it fits!! If it's a heartwarming tale of a girl and her cat and an invasion of Lovecraftian horrors from beyond our dimension, it surely fits!

Basically, I exclude Generic Moe 4 Girls Manga #14092. Everything else, if it has actual surreal elements, or is just a strange and quirky daily life comedy, is fair game!

EDIT: Speaking of Takagi-San, I just checked out the other manga that the author did, about the guy whose little sister is a jiang-shi. Oh my god. It's so bad. Why does it exist? Why do the freaking scanlators translate that instead of Takagi-san?? Just why??

Not only is it licensed, but the group that was scanslating it dropped it anyway. We're probably going to have to wait many, many months to read more of this. (Which makes the fact that it's objectively better than Monster Musume in every way hurt so much more.)
