Are there any original manga series in the magical girl genre that aren't adaptations or spin-offs/adaptations from other media (i.e. anime, games, VN, etc). I know the MS genre was basically born on TV but I'm wondering if there was or is any franchise or series that only remained in manga form.

Do you normally buy manga? Or What makes you buy a manga? (29)

1 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2012-03-11 01:31 ID:ZsvYDh1C

I'm poor and broke as you can get so piracy is generally my only default option. But if I find a manga that is of superb quality, then if I can, I buy it.
Provided of course that it ever even gets printed in the states/english.

20 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2015-07-14 08:02 ID:N04hMuOA

I like to Manga buy for the more cliche reason in that I enjoy holding something physical and it feels more personal than pixels on a screen.

22 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2015-09-06 17:44 ID:WKlQIU1V

I don't like buying manga generally, it feels like a huge waste of space and getting a digital copy to read on a tablet is just more convenient, but having physical copies of volumes I like or complete series (if short) is nice. Only other reason I bother with buying manga is to support localization of something I really care about and wish for it to be successful (JoJo hard cover release and LotGH novel for example). Otherwise I get it in Japanese or buy artbooks from the series instead.

Yes. The same reason why people prefer reading books instead of e-books. But I won't ever spend much money on this, I only buy ~1 manga per month.

28 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2015-11-28 19:57 ID:gZTBsuY4

I rarely buy manga, this is mainly because of the poor quality and format of the printing.
I buy a lot of comics in the trade paperback format but manga is usually printed in a smaller format with lower quality paper, and lacks things like gutters.
The few mangas I've bought have been outliers in quality, these are mangas released from drawn and quarterly and a few reprintings from fantagraphics.

29 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2020-01-10 06:44 ID:Bk17U3Sr

I usually buy manga that I've read from Book Off, they have a good sized selection for pretty low prices. Reading online is convenient, but holding a book in my hands feels much better in comparison.

Yotsuba&! (21)

1 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2009-03-16 15:29 ID:rUX2O5Y6

I am surprised a thread was not made before, but anyway here you can talk about Yostuba&! and all its wonderfullness.
My favorite characters are Koiwai and Fuuka, and they double as a good couple even though that would make Koiwai a pedo. Yotsuba herself is adorable and can really make you happy and stuff.

Who be your favorite characters?

I bought the first six volumes yesterday. I'm really enjoying the series so far!

My heart is filled with joy becasue through the help of Dr.Ozama i have been able to play football for the club of my choice. There are so many agents out there promising people that they will help you and they will always fail to help you, But in this case Dr.Ozama is not an agent but a spell caster that will cast a spell for you and within 21 days the club of your choice will be begging you to play for them. All just have to is contact Dr.Ozama through these details via email: or via phone number on +2348056934252 and within 21 days your request will be granted

14 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2014-04-18 00:42 ID:1mcAVmJY

I love this manga. It's a great introduction to reading Japanese.

15 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2014-09-03 15:53 ID:s7ZS4ZK1

Yanda is good.

16 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2015-02-11 12:24 ID:updRzaqr

Yanda is my favorite male character in the series.

The tricks he plays on Yotsuba are always funny.

17 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2015-03-27 08:24 ID:L9Xf5sOy

The art style is really nice. I like how there's all the really pretty and detailed backgrounds which contrast nicely with the more simple (not bland or boring, just simple) character designs. The language is simple and easy to understand for kids, and the format almost seems to be made to teach kids a new word every chapter. But, there's also humor and cuteness to keep adults entertained too. Azuma-sensei really is a genius.

I bought the first 12 volumes in Japanese so that had some light material to practice reading with, and I'm glad I did. It feels really good to understand a section and be able to laugh about a gag that I understood without having to look up any words.

Worked as a translator for a few months for a scanlation group. Was fun. Would probably do it again.

Trying to remember the name of a manga about a cute girl called Tassu, she's japanese but did a foreign exchange course to Denmark to study there. It's an otome manga from the late 1980s, anybody know the name?

Post your manga plot ideas... (525)

1 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2006-11-11 23:11 ID:OoTDdlRR

I'll start.

I've had quite a few ideas for comics/manga in my time, but I've always been too lazy to do anything about them. These are free to use if you want to, and if you want I'll supply more plot/plans for any of them. For most of these I had fleshed them out more than just the summary.

I guess a few of these would also make good web comics.

A 21 year old man has a nightmare of him losing his life due to fatigue in a desert. He quickly wakes up afterwards, happy that it was just a dream. He gets on his laptop to write a story about his dream, and spaces out,

While spacing out, he looks out his window. The sky is clouded with a dust like substance. He opens his door to be rushed by an arid breeze. He looks out, shocked at the scene... guessed it person with common sense #18718273878

He was in a desert.

A berserker packin' man-and-a-half tries to punch a cyberdemon to death, but his berserk runs out and he goes on a quest for MORE GUNS. After many battles, trials of his courage, and environmental epiphanies, he finds his holy grail, the BIG FUCKING GUN, and vaporizes the cyberdemon and his minions into atoms. The end.

in the worst prison where the most heinous criminals are , around 1000 of them, the owner of the prison is also the president or some high authority who has the right to do whatever they want, gets bored and wants to see some blood so he decides that if a prisoner kills 10 others , he'll be freed and will never get back in prison no matter what , the catch is if one of the many cameras see anyone's face killing another , they be killed immediatly and there are cameras everywhere , certain cameras work at day and others at night , so the prisoners have to kill intelligently , ofc some of them dont bother listening to the rest of the speech so they try to kill immediatly someone once they hear the info , but if that happens , a highly advanced mechanism triggers and kills the dude immediatly.there is a 1 month deadline where all survivors also get freed if they survive living through the whole ordeal without taking a single life, if you have killed 6 others b4 then , youd be put in a cell where you wont be basically either kill 10 people or survive the month without killing and without getting killed by the other prisoners..there are a bunch of different type of prisoners, the ones that are highly intelligent , the others that are strong and some of the mix.the prison is supplied by many types of killing tools every 4 days but the hallway after you quit the room has no cameras in it so its risky. the prison is huge and has many mechanism to it and many secret rooms and passages. .basically , its a survival game where the smartest wins , you need to kill without getting getting caught , and it should be some point , info that the whole "be freed forever" thing is false and that they will kill whoever is left so the rest of the prisoners (which should be a low number) decide to team up to escape without anyone finding out. i wanna point out that there shouldnt be a "main" characters , its basically point of view from the final 5 charcters. the end should be a single one sacrificing his "friends" to leave. essentially , its everyones adventure to escape , there should also be point of views from some characters that end up dying and remembering their whole life or whatever.

So, i need GREAT book ideas, i am an experienced writer and i've been bummed out, i'll give you credit in the book. Preferably a manga style but i do not really care. Also keep it it the range of not too adult-ish but like... tokyo ghoul or just... what some 16 year old reads.

How about a parody of K-on about an all girl band (one dresses like mio, and another dresses like ibuki from dnaganronpa), but the only song they know how to play is "March of the SOD" by Stormtroopers of Death. despite this they are number one band in the world surpassing even DethKlok. To have your song covered by the band is considered greatest honor (they still play March of the SOD, but actually sing the lyrics of the your song the way you meant for it to be sung)! When they not on tour or performing they travel through out time and space in a blue police box solving mysteries (Doctor Who and Scooby Doo Parody). Also rest of time they wear Asian school girl uniform. all the girls are college age.

Recommend me a new manga! (11)

1 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2017-05-15 11:32 ID:wjDl1ff8

Please recommend me a new manga to read. I'm very bored, and I need a new one to read. I loved Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the shell, and Serial Experiments Lain. Thanks in advance!

2 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2017-06-09 02:51 ID:cHGf8l9H

lol you could've picked a better forum
have you read Blame!? I don't think there's even decent scanlations on the net, so I don't know how you'll read it, but from what I've heard it's pretty good

3 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2017-07-01 12:05 ID:xscmqqDT

Blame's good, but I'd rate Abara above it. Biomega is very long, and sort of boring, so I'd place it behind Blame.

If you want something that's less sci-fi, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Kurosawa: Legend of the Strongest Man and its sequel. They're both very good.

4 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2017-08-23 12:06 ID:yhFvrnu9

Thirding Blame!. Very good.
Berserk reminded me a lot of Texhnolyze (since, you mentioned you liked Lain). Not cyberpunk at all though. My other personal favs include Oyasumi Punpun and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei but idk if you'd be interested in them.

go to baka updates to get the latest update on almost evry manga the world could offer.
its the latest till some1 forgot to update any of the series there.

about your mangas, just stack them anyway you want as long as you and your mom are happy about it.

5 Name: shu : 2007-05-01 23:55 ID:OnCQ1Xsg

how about that??

As long as you keep organizing it, at least never makes some random floders like "new" or "just download" and put them directly in their folder, I think you'll not mess them up ...
