    My picks from this bunch are: Ohikkoshi, Pokemon Adventure / Pokemon Special (they're the same thing), Pluto and Ping Pong Club. Pokemon Adventure in particular is deceptively awesome.

    There's also a couple of Taiyo Matsumoto mangas there if any of you (fags) are into indie comics.
    Is there a reason that they're listed here as two separate manga? As embarassing as it is, I'm a Pokemon fan and intend to read the manga. Should I just dl one of them and ignore the other?

    Pokemon Adventures is the Viz title, Pokemon Special is the Japanese title. I suppose Kevin Shiel was unaware of that. In anycase I'd recommend reading it somewhere other than this website since there are scans of up to volume 26 on the internet whereas this site only has to around volume 7 by the looks of it (I'm rusty on the old chapter numbers).

    There are some other pokemon mangas orth downloading though. Dengeki Pikachu aka Tales of Electric Pikachu is fun. Surprisingly ecchi as well.

    Cool, thanks for the info.

    I'll check out Dengeki Pikachu too, although the thought of ecchi Pokemon adventures is a little disturbing.

    Whee, here's a good one. Straight up confession: I don't like baseball. I read Adachi's baseball manga because it's Adachi, in spite of it being about baseball.

    Ookiku Furikabutte sucked me in anyway. Asa Higuchi is no Adachi, but she still had me freebasing her stuff all weekend. I mean, the first tournament game of the series, first round prefectural tournament mind you, takes four freaking volumes to complete, and I still snorted it down and was reaching for more, hands trembling. Dude. Award-winning for a reason. Highly recommended.

    (BTW, was Higuchi an assistant to Hitochi Iwaaki? I can't find any mention of it, but she draws VERY similar faces at times.)

    Was Iwaaki's the guy who did Parasyte, right? I have to say I didn't notice any resemblance.

    Quick question about Ookiku: Does the main character ever stop being such a sniveling wuss? I tried reading it before and found him unbearable.

    Cool, thanks for the info.

    And yes, Ohikkoshi is great. I saw the cover in one of the two comic shops I visit and bought it on impulse. I'm so glad my first experience of it was with a real book rather than through a computer screen.

    No Bra. As amazing as the title is, it wasn't what i expected. (Yes dirty me, sue me.)

    It's about a guy that starts living with his transexual friend. The art is subpar and the only interesting character was said transexual, being a bit funny. That, and the fact that the other guy is trying to control himself from liking his "cute" friend and turning homosexual. His friend is a real trap.

    I have read about 2-3 chapters, no more really. It IS an interesting read in some aspects, so i might check some more later.
    Greetings earthlings.

    Parasyte, yeah, though that's from earlier in his career. Some of the team look they stepped right out of the pages of Historie.

    The pitcher, he, ah, makes progress in the bare two months covered so far. A little progress. He's not so much a wuss as suffering from massive self-image problems, despite his drive to pitch well.

    Three to take note of:

    Partner is a shoujo suspense thriller by Miho Obana, author of such younger fare as Hime-chan no Ribon. Unfortunately, it's one of those dropped by Shoujo Magic in their slow disintegration, with no one picking it up -- just as the story's getting particularly interesting. Check it out and lobby your favorite group to pick it up.

    Penguin Prince is a collection of shoujo one-shots, mostly of school romances. The quality is varying and the art's not that great, but the two best stories stuck with me for a while. Worth a passing glance.

    Peter Pan Syndrome is a younger shoujo fantasy about a girl who can fly when the sun is down or obscured by clouds, who is searching for her mother in the city where she disappeared. Contains psionics, mysterious persons from a secret laboratory, and a talking cat that turns out to be integral to the plot, wonder of wonders. A sweet story complete at two volumes.

    BTW, for those of you wondering which of the five series listed by MangaUpdates called Only You the recently added one is, it's this one by Yuki Suetsugo. We tell you these things because we care.

    It turns out to be a decent, though not brilliant, shoujo psychological drama with psy powers. Though, really, it's only the handling of a specific incident at the end of the first volume that has me depreciating it -- until then, I was digging it. After that, it swerves into deeper melodrama.
