Here I go onto recommending manga again! Gosh, it is a little bit hard to come up with a theme for rec. because I mostly (‘mostly’ here possibly corresponds to 95%) read yaoi manga, then josei/shojo follows. The manga I’ll be mentioning right now will not be new to everyone, but I love these manga so I’ll go with “Who cares!” kind of attitude tonight. (；一_一)
Okay, tonight’s theme (or common ground? whichever you like) is 4-coma mangas. Formation of the titles are the same as my first rec. post : [Sensei, Magazine] Manga name.
[Midori Endo, Gangan Joker] Gugure! Kokkuri-san
This cute little manga is brought to us by Midori Endo. Still ongoing since 2011 and it is in its 9th volume. There are so few chapters scanlated in English sadly, but still the comedy is so good and characters are cute and psychotic in their own ways. Kohina is a doll living by herself and one night while she playes the Kokkuri-san game (the same as witch board, only you get to talk to the fox spirit Kokkuri-san) the spirit actually comes and after seeing Kohina’s conditions, Kokkuri-san decides to haunt her. Along the way, Kohina is haunted by different spirits and we get to see them living in ‘harmony’. If you are a fan of absurd comedy like me, you will surely enjoy the series.
[Author : Matsu Koma / Artist : Hashimoto, Comic Gene] Nietzsche-sensei – Konbini ni, Satori Sedai no Shinjin ga Maiorita
This series is strange yet very sweet. Matsukoma works at a convenience store during night shifts and now he has a new co-worker: Niitomo Haru. Niitomo being a little extraordinary, there is always action in the shop. I like characters like Niitomo, you can never tell whether he is genius or just mentally damaged （￣ー￣）.
[Yanagida Fumita, Tsui 4] Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko!
This is a series I just took up, started serialising this year. As you will see below, Tomo-chan has a crush on is childhood friend but is in the depths of the hell called ‘friendzone’. Tomo is not happy about this issue, but she cannot help it since her upbringing was like a boy’s. This series is a fun way to pass time, though maybe not too much to my taste.
This is all for this post. The visual in the header belongs to another 4-coma manga that just recently adapted into anime, Himouto Umaru-chan! and while little Umaru-chan is official art, edit done by me. I’ll leave you with my precious doll Kohina, taken from Midori Endo’s Twitter account.
