Wow, I've been meaning to read this thread for a while, just now got through it. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do.


And a few good recommendations to do, it think, but I'll do it later since phone posting those is a pain.

Okay, before I pass out, here's what I hope is a short list:

Kotonoba Drive
From the guy who brought you the most relaxingingly depressing, yet optimistic take on a post-climate change world and "I really like planes". I only saw this mentioned like, two years ago so I figured I'd bring it up again.

It's a manga about a(nother) girl who works in a cafe and drives a scooter, Suu-chan, but the hook this time is that she ... gets lost in the moment. Sometimes literally. The art is as beautiful as we have come expect from Ashinano, and easily creates the sense of listlessness Suu feels in those moments. This is another great manga to lazily read on a summer afternoon. (Also, if you're here and you haven't read Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou yet ... what are you doing reading this post. Go read YKK instead.)


Neko Ane (Cat Sister)
Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but it's pretty good. A young man goes to be raised by his grandmother after he loses his parents. His grandmother asked her lovey old cat to be his older sister, and ... she obliged. It also has the fluffiest strays.

WARNING: can be slightly NSFW, as it does have some inducing 'cat changes into human form, OH NO WHERE'S THE CLOTHES' panels.


Anko-San the Deep Sea Fish
I know this was mentioned in the last thread, but linking again because I find it very cute. Riding the monstergirl wave, it's a manga where mermaids live up on land with humans - It follows Anko-san, a Lanternfish and her friends. It's got a wonderful supporting cast of different mermaids (Shark girl is my personal fave), and it's generally pretty great.

It has some obligatory bath scenes, but it's mainly just cute instead of .
Also, can confirm: the volume covers are great. It's super shiny and textured, a better quality cover than any other soft tank I have.


Custom Maid
I see it was mentioned in the anime chat thread last month, and though it's probably one of the least surreal ones here there's some surrealism in that the gist of the plot is: this maid can learn anything by pulling an all-nighter. Literally anything. And it's pretty strange. The rest of the manga is mainly just 'cute', so feel free to disregard this if you feel like it.




I saw Cool Kyoushinsha was mentioned earlier in the thread. I'm getting really tired, but I'll link to a couple of his(?) other manga(s?) that are on my reading list.

Furumapura
The 4-koma story of two high school friends, one an extroverted country girl, and one who only communicates through score cards (1-10, but they can be combined!). It's fun seeing the way they interact and how they communicate when one girl only uses her scorecards.


Mononoke Sharing NSFW
A very poor girl needs a room on the cheap, and finds one! it's just...

It's a fun read for the silly antics, but isn't really anything too serious. It's also (I think) where Kyoushinsha works out the urge to draw boobs. So be prepared for some boobs (especially chapter 10, even though the chapter gave me a new thing to try while swimming[SFW]).


Man, looking back on it I have to caveat a more of those than I thought as "Man, the cat loses its clothes but hey! What're ya gonna do! It's manga~~" and I don't know how that makes me feel.

Ooh, one last quick addition even though i'm not positive it belongs here: I've only seen it mentioned once on the threads, I think, but Wizard's Soul: ~Holy War of Love~ is kinda surreal in that Magic: The Gathering is The One True Past-time in the entire world. And it's freaking GREAT and more people should read it. No caveats, full stop.

This is quite a nice list here! "Mononoke Sharing" is a little (a lot) on the side since it's all apparently about the boobs fanservice, but I am so glad you mentioned Wizard's Soul. Translations for that one really need to come out more often, because I'm just dying to see the next ridiculous, terrible combo that Manaka will bring out next.

A new Torikissa (Bird Cafe) came out after a few months' delay.

To this I can only think of:



(from the first AD&D Manual)

And also quite possibly one of the most heartwarming chapters of Takeo-chan. Had me misty-eyed at that one final family scene!

If you haven't done so yet, it's worthwhile to check out the Takeo-chan author's previous work, Love Roma. It looks like it was brought over at one point, but since has long gone out of print. It's a romantic comedy drawn in that guy's unique, quirky style.

I have the new Takeo-chan open on my laptop to read when I get home

Expect another Torikissa soon, the script is done. I think we just need to typeset and qc it, which will hopefully be done later this week (though I don't know Kennit's schedule). We've been kinda floundering since the leader of the group has been focusing on her thesis (which she just successfully defended!), and without her we just kinda ... laze about.
Also apparently this next chapter is SUPER

I was a bit leery about posting Mononoke Sharing because it is all about the boobs, but people here seem to like Cool Kyoushina (like I do), so more CK is better! But that new sign-girl one is ... so cute.

Which would probably make for a decent spinoff for CK.
E: to the people who think it's a one-trick pony, yeah, I feel ya. But I think it's less about the actual scoring and more about the actual communication gap between this really weird girl and the cool girl. Which I touched upon in the two latest chaps more than it is in the beginning.

I took ages to get around to reading this, and I'm sorry I did - this is possibly my favourite series recommended by this thread. It really captures the feeling of, like… going somewhere that no-one else will probably visit for months. Going five minutes out of your way off a road you know like the back of your hand and finding something you never expected to see. It’s very calming and easy-going, and it has sort of a magical realism thread going throughout. The art is beautiful, too.

I'm glad you like it! It's pretty great

DrSunshine posted:

I was a little let-down by the fact that the background art wasn't as detailed as Yokohama Shopping Trip's in the chapters I perused, but maybe I ought to give it a second look-see.

The art is definitely not as detailed as YKK, but I do dearly love its sketchy feel.
The feel of each chapter seems to be something like "a fleeting glimpse at something different." If you don't slow down, you'll miss it

It ... sort of makes you really appreciate the sketchiness of it.

One question I have that may just be my terrible memory - wasn't the ghostie's whole schtick "can't talk, uses signcards, is cute"? Looks like she talked ... what, 3 times this chapter?

In a contest between cute vampires, who wins -- Youko from "Actually, I'm a..." or Hikari from "Demi-chan"?

I think the real MVP of this episode is the teacher, who's again so very that he's utterly unflappable and never misses a beat, even when talking about difficult subjects. It's all science to him, so he doesn't even give it a second thought.

I think Hikari gives Youko a run for her money for the title of "Bestpire".


As for a final verdict, I'll leave that up to each person individually.

And it's another chance to plug YKK, aka the best SoL ever, so it might be worth it. I'll probably plug half a dozen or so initially, and edit suggestions in. Only caveat is I'm gonna have spotty Internet for like a month and a half starting in june, which could make managing it difficult.

Wonderful! Ah, so T-Rex is a webcomic. That's pretty neat, don't they publish a new strip each day or something? At least that's the way it is with Tomo-chan.

Speaking of which, if SOMEONERODENTHARRRR would make the [regular] Daily Life thread, Tomo-chan's a Girl! would probably be one of the thread's darlings. Although, actually, given how often scans come out ... and how gosh darn cute and funny it is, maybe it warrants its own thread!

I was thinking about it, but realized I actually don't know all that many off the top of my head!! Ones that I like are Mitsuboshi Colors () and Tomo-chan is a Girl! and Yotsuba& too, but I haven't seen a new chapter in months.

Mmk, I'm gonna sleep off this cold and then work on it over the weekend. I know Yotsuba& and its newer Korean counterpart, All Day Jo Ayoung, are covered in Everything Burrito's You're Already Dad! thread (which is great, read it if you don't already). I'm sure I can rustle up something for a normal Slice of Life thread (Which I may insert a YKK recommendation into because I can't help myself.)

I got the sense after reading the first few chapters that it was always a kind of weird sex thing with that one. My conclusions seem to have borne out.

Okay I'll maybe give you the one about the overweight delinquent with huge boobs.

Ojojojo is the one I can think of where it isn't, but I kinda remember stopping reading komori because of how it was always a weird thing with her baps. I may be misremembering though.
