    Default oneshots

    Since this section is apparently supposed to deal with anything without it's own series, I was wondering whether anyone knows any good oneshots that they're read lately.

    Two that I've read so far are Emerald, and Hotel.


    short review:
    Emerald may have been a bit predictable, and it moved a bit too fast near the end, but it was still quite enjoyable. Hotel even managed to be pretty funny despite the post-apocalyptic theme (I'm still wondering why "manager" looks like a little black kid in his hallucination/dream).

    Good ones are Goth and Digimortal, both at omanga.net, if you like Seinen.

    I'm looking for a long time for "Ashen Victor" and "Love Story, killed", but still couldn't find them, even on #lurk. Somebody has them in his collection ?

    ^ I've read both, though for Goth it's the (incomplete) novel and not the manga, their attitudes are way too unrealistic for it to be too appealing though. As for Digimortal, Tsutomu Nihei does better work when he works on a series in my opinion.

    ^ Read that a while ago on anime-source, it's pretty good, better than Raiden 18, not quite as good as FMA.

    Most of the stories in Adachi's Bōken Shōnen aka Adventure Boys are pretty good. Two in particular have stuck with me over the months, but they're all worth the read.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    I found them all to be excellent, including Platform.
