5 Manga You Will Be Dying To Know What Happens Next — 19 Comments

    • They are all really fun. Though my favorite is 僕だけがいない街。The only problem with this one is that it is new, so you have to wait, painstakingly, for the next chapters.

      • I just got done reading the first volume of it and the suspense is killing me! Now I regret only ordering the first three volumes… Gonna have to wait another two weeks to get the rest.

  1. I just told myself I would stop going to BookOff for a while since I’ve already bought so many manga. And now you’ve just tempted me with a few of these. Not good!

    • BOOK OFF is AMAZING!!! when I was in Japan I had to ship my things back home because I bought to much manga lol is kinda sad.

      • I ended up buying the first volume of 僕だけがいない街 and enjoyed it so I have purchased the 2nd volume and will be reading that soon. It strangely took me a while to get into the 1st volume as something was throwing me off and I couldn’t figure it out. The Japanese wasn’t particularly difficult but I couldn’t settle in. Then I started reading it out loud and realized it was the pacing of the main character’s internal monologue. Once I realized that, it changed everything and I was able to continue on at a rapid pace.

        • Glad the pace picked up for you! One thing to be careful for is try not to leave too much time in between volumes, as it becomes a somewhat involved story and it can become easy to forget the details.

          This was my issue since I had to wait a few months for every new volume to come out!

          • Okay, I have now bought (and already read) the first volume of アイアムアヒーロー and I can’t wait to read more. The art is fantastic and I love the non-clean, this-is-real-life dialogue. But seriously, this manga buying needs to stop. I now have way too many series!

            アイアムアヒーロー (on volume 2/16)
            僕だけがいない街 (on volume 3/5)
            進撃の巨人 (on volume 5/16)
            ホイッスル (on volume 12/24)
            暗殺教室 (on volume 4/13)
            自殺島 (on volume 2/12)
            美少女戦士セーラームーン (on volume 3/12)

            And that’s not counting the three series I had to leave behind in the US unfinished.
            俺たちのフィールド (on volume 15/33)
            魔法先生ネギま!(on volume 16/38)
            エンジェルハート (on volume 4/33)

            And it’s not like I’m not furiously trying to read through them! (And it is quite quite enjoyable. Almost like it’s not a problem at all. *ahem* No, it’s a problem!)

  2. Manga like 僕だけがいない街 are the reason I refuse to begin any series that hasn’t reached its conclusion.

  3. I started reading Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi but dropped it after a first few pages because I thought the art was crappy, and it was a bit boring.

    I just finished the first episode….HOLY CAT! The last 15 seconds just blew my mind.

    • There are only 3 episodes released??? I highly regret watching this show. The suspense is killing me. I don’t wanna read the manga…I guess I’ll have to wait for a few days, or read ネタバレ.

      • Im with you on this one; I watch a lot of currently airing anime so I’m used to the wait, but god damn this one is just killing me, the anime is SO well made, it’s crazy! Because of that though I refuse to read the manga, since even the manga isnt totally finished yet (although it will finish at the same time as the anime).

    • I seem to be missing something with this series. As in, everyone on the internet seems to be all “wow that was amazing I didn’t see that coming this is the best series ever!!!!” and I’m just “meh, that ‘cliffhanger’ sounds about right”. I just am not feeling the excitement on this one.

      • I actually think it’s less about ‘oh my god, what will happen next’ and more about the excellent characterization and the absolutely gorgeous art and animation. At least, that’s why I’m so in love with it.

        • For the manga, the art is the only think keeping me going because I really like it. That and the fact that the series is still on the short side. I don’t think I’d continue if it had 30 volumes still to read. I’ve never seen the anime as I don’t watch anime.
