    Huh. I feel pretty much exactly the same.

    Tried it out for about 25 chapters. It was kind of fun but it just didn't go anywhere or really do anything with the setting.

    Beelzebub 150 is out!


    Oga basically achieved the nirvana of cluelessnes. He's so egotic that's it's chura.


    And Creepichi finds out that he became basically redundant.

    Besides, I'm sure most of us have some favourite that we consider better then any of the Top Three. (Me with Negima, for example.) I still read Naruto and Bleach, though, because they are still pretty okay and I'm invested in them.

    It's a mistake to assume the most popular manga must be the ones of the highest quality. Rather, they are the ones that appeal fairly well with the broadest demographic.

    Does that mean the balance of the universe is at risk again? Or is that only when we both like the same thing?

    I do believe that the universe can deal with us not liking a manga together now that we've found a few that we both like.

    If you start liking Zatch Bell though. Then we're in troube.

    Yeah, but what are the odds of that happening?

    Okay, I managed to get some free time on my hands and just went through about 60 chapters of Mysterious Girlfriend X. This series is awesome and I'm anxiously awaiting the anime. Up next, Magi!

    Medaka Box 140.

    Well, that chapter was odd.

    Oh, hey, Kumagawa managed to look cool without making himself look ridiculous for once. Probably because he only showed up for one panel.

    I'm liking Aiba more and more with each chapter. He's refreshingly normal and sane. A great contrast to Oga.

    It was kind of a fight between meta and non-meta.

    Hopefully Aijimu won't neutered by this. She was the thing that made me interested in this manga again.

    Is it me, or could you easily make the ending of the manga be Ajimu in a straightjacket, with the doctors around her sadly saying that she's retreated further into her fantasy world?

    Nah. That trick only works if the story was told from her perspective. Not only is her first appearance a fair bit into the plot, but most of her scenes are from interacting with the Medaka or Zenkichi. In literary terms, the story is told in third person omniscient perspective (since it shifts between following different characters depending on scene) so if it's all her fantasy, it doesn't make sense for her to also be a character in that fantasy.*

    Heck, that's how we know she really is delusional about thinking she is a manga character from the story's perspective, even though we also know she really is a manga character from our perspective, which is is what makes it so damn meta!

    *Well, okay, there are ways around that. She could be doing the Bartimaeus Trilogy thing, where she is the first person narrator in any scene where she is present and the third person narrator for the rest of the story. But that only makes sense if the story is told in past tense - as in, she'd actually have to be telling this story to someone or writing it down after it happened. If she's in a mental hospitial living through this story in her head, that implies present tense.

    World God Only Knows:

    A marriage proposal out of nowhere!!!

    Wait, meet the parents already?

    "Hello, nice to meet you I took your daughter's first time."!!!

    What?

    How the hell did he get a wedding dress?

    The climax draws near!

    Seriously, you all should read this.

    Freezing:

    So you are going to make a couple of girls undergo horribly lethal experiments and you're surprised when the rebel?

    Really?

    Mangaka-san to Assistant-san:



    Heh, silly Aito. You never tell your love interests they are part of your harem, even if they kind of are.

    Cardfight!! Vanguard finale.

    That was actually really good.

    Points to Aichi for admitting that spoilers:
    his self that desired power and enjoyed humiliating others came from him and not Psyqualia.
    end of spoilers

    It's the things like that, that make this anime fun to watch.

    It was a satisfying season finale. Now onward to the Season Season.
