With the return of the anime this october, it's a good idea to always have the whole work somewhat fresh in your mind going into the ending arc, and to that end I will storytime the manga (alonside some extras) until the end of fullbring, and then point out things in the adaption as it is happening, to form a better informed view of the manga, for me and (You).

Daily Criminale! Chapter
Cover 2
What was your reaction when reading through a manga and suddenly came to an abrupt end? Consumed by rage? Filled with confusion? Drown in disbelief and denial? Perhaps, plagued with uncontrollable laughter at the absurdity.

Nevertheless, come. Relive, share with others, or experience for yourself the first time some of these short lived (maybe justifiably so) creations.
Make valuable lessons be learnt. And never forget, the true ending was the friends we read questionably sourced Japanese cartoon drawings on a handicraft forum with along the way.

Rehabilitation by enabling. Can one man fix his fellow inmates, er... I mean classmates?

>Ichimura Tamito is a criminal magnet. Ever since he could remember he had attracted criminals from kidnappers kidnapping him when he was just a newborn, to robbers stealing his toys. He is determined to start a new life and make new friends after moving into a new city but at the start of the day he was bombarded by all sorts of crime. After encountering a knife wielding killer in broad daylight he saves a young girl that coincidentally belongs to the same class as he does. But something seems off about this girl and his new class too. It seems like our protagonist's magnetic pull on crime and criminals is getting stronger as he find out that he belongs to a class of criminals and suspects.

Destroy All Humankind. They Can’t Be Regenerated. storytime
Continuing the storytime from >>241189919
From the same writer and artist duo that brought you Onani Master Kurosawa. The artist is also simultaneously putting out The Story Between a Dumb Prefect and a High School Girl with an Inappropriate Skirt Length.

Since the last storytime, FAscans has released chapter 39. So I guess I got bamboozled in to thinking they were dead. I don't know what this means for any of the other series they were working on though.

I'm a big MTG nerd so I'll answer any questions you have about the game, though I don't believe you need to understand the game to still enjoy this manga.

Best Ghibli Movie?
Porch Rosso is the best ghibli and it's not even close. Clearly not meant for children, it has one of the most interesting romantic relationships Miyazaki has placed on screen, wirh Porco and Gina. The relationship between Porco and Fio also deserves praise both for its seriousness as for its historical accuracy.

On the themes of history, the movie pays a homage to the beginnings of aviation wonderfully, with great scenes over the Adriatic. Rosso's background and relationship to the fascist government also grounds the movie despite its fantastical elements. We are made painfully aware that even in the magical world of ghibli, serious and relatable issues from the adult world exist.

The soundtrack, although not the best for the action scenes, capture the magic of those early days of flight, when adults allowed themselves the naivety of believing anything was possible. It balances out the more serious undertones of this piece, together with the playful relationship between Porco, his plane, and Fio.

Fate/Stay Night Bitching
I have to admit I do not find Rin sexy nor an interesting love interest to Shirou. I found her route and interactions in the Fate route to not be engaging. They both acted like standard Shonen characters crossed with Harry Potter. I did however love her relationship with Sakura and find it tragically engaging. I also liked it when Shirou and Rin were just friends and devoted to protect and save someone close to them without having to get their underwear off.

Daily Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Chapter
Daily Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Chapter volume 20 cover, named so as to be a backup for when the thread title is forgotten
Nozomu Itoshiki is depressed. Very depressed. He’s certifiably suicidal, but he’s also the beloved schoolteacher of a class of unique students, each charming in her own way: The stalker. The shut-in. The obsessive-compulsive. The girl who comes to class every day with strange bruises. And Kafuka, the most optimistic girl in the world, who knows that every cloud has a silver lining. For all of them, it’s a special time, when the right teacher can have a lasting positive effect on their lives. But is that teacher Itoshiki, a.k.a. Zetsubou-sensei, who just wants to find the perfect place to die?

Scanalation Thread
The series I'm scanalating is supposed to be pretty funny, but some readers have said that it feels more upsetting than anything, and I'm sure it's because of my translation. I try to be pretty loyal to the original, so often it sounds stiff, but I realize changing the wording there or adding something here would improve the result. How much do you change to make sure the meaning is conveyed? I probably just need a good proofreader, don't I.

It's always the same response. One Punch Man is still good because it's a gag manga, One Piece is still good because it's a gag manga. Fuck off, they aren't only that, drama, and complex developments have been depicted in both stories. Dr. Slump is an actual gag manga, and a good one for that matter, unlike these two shit manga.

Lets rate the My Hero Academia Openings!
I was super fucking bored so I just wanted to make a post where I rated all of the MHA openings out of 10. I'd like if we all could talk about them together and discuss it.

TLDR: Overall, I really do think MHA hit the mark hard with openings 1, 2, 3, and 7. All of the others don’t really shine as much as I wish they could have. I think MHA needs WAY more creativity and style in the last few openings they are going to do. Like if you check out Naruto Shippuden’s first few openings, even up to 9 you will be blown away by how unique and well directed they are. All I want is for MHA to achieve that same level of quality.

Criteria is as followed:

I won't be judging them off how much I like the song because everyone's opinions differ when it comes to music.

I will be judging them off how much the song actually fits with the openings in terms of its timing and things of that nature.

I will be judging the openings based on their visuals, creativity, and direction.

I will also be judging it based on the events going on in the story and if they utilized those events enough in the opening itself.

You do NOT have to follow my criteria though

# Opening 1 | The Day


Score: 9/10

Wow, really what a great start to the series that is MHA. The opening starts off with Deku reaching out to the insurmountable light that is All Might just to symbolize what this series is all about. The opening does an amazing job of portraying Deku's early struggles of being quirkless and even tells the events of Season 1 in a pretty linear fashion. There's a particular part where Deku's hero notebooks go black/negative then it switches to him and Bakugo to illustrate that's where the frustration in his life lies. The only thing drawing this opening back is some uninspired stills of the cast, but it's the first opening so it's fine. This opening is just overall good stuff, great timing with the song, good visuals.
