What manga magazine would you read?
Suppose you read Japanese fluently.
Suppose further -- possibly as a reward for all that hard work -- someone gives you a gift subscription for any one manga magazine published in Japan. Note that because of the cost of postage to wherever in the world you live, this is only one magazine.
Which do you pick?
Me, I'd pick Afternoon.
Yes, Ikki runs a lot of really great series, but they have an even higher density of, um, relentlessly indie comics -- which usually grate on me the way certain relentlessly modern poetry does, and just about all performance art. Running in second ahead of that would be either Flowers or Young You, I'm not sure which. But looking at Afternoon, I already know there's a lot I read or am interested in.
Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.
Angel Heart, Chobits, ARIA/Aqua, Oh My Goddess
The only magazine that I really know about is Jump, and I don't care much for those type of series.
