Manga of the Week: Can’t See, Can’t Hear But Love

So I know that this isn’t manga. It’s a manhwa which means instead of being made in Japan, it was made in Korea. Nevertheless, I feel prompted to share this one with the rest of you. Usually, I’m not into manhwas or webtoons. The structure of the pages never really appealed to me, nor (from what I’m see) the content of most manhwas. However, this one is different. This one’s special. This is called Can’t See, Can’t Hear But Love.

Manga of the Week: Denpa Kyoushi

So I thought this would make a nice new weekly segment for the blog site, seeing as I haven’t posted anything in awhile. From this week on, I’ll be posting Anime or Manga of the Week, to suggest some show or reading material people might be interested in. I know Ven and King were interested in doing something like this but seeing as they post once a century, I’ll be taking on this segment myself.  Also, I hope I can shed some spotlight on shows or manga that I personally don’t think get as much attention as they should. These weekly posts would likely come at any day within the week, as I’ve yet to establish a proper schedule for this segment. Without further adieu, I shall start this weekly segment off with one of the newcomer mangas, Denpa Kyoushi.

What it’s about: A genius otaku, Kagami Junichirou, obsesses more on anime and idols than physics, despite his incredibly high IQ. He takes up a job teaching at a high school, but his teaching tactics are quite odd. All the while he “teaches”, he assists his students with their own personal issues.

What it sounds like: Think if Great Teacher Onizuka and The World God Only Knows had a baby. This is that baby.

Why you should read it: Denpa Kyoushi boasts great characters and quirky dialogue that livens the scene as Kagami often acts as one of the oddest teachers you’ll see in a manga. One of his assignments involves the whole class playing an online game as a means of self introduction. Nevertheless, Kagami proves he’s a nice guy time and time again as he’s constantly pulling through for his students to help them with their needs.

How the hell this guy is in a teaching position, I will never know, but dammit I wish I was his student. At 15 chapters translated so far, it’d be quite quick to catch up to where it’s at now. If you like a new pace of comedy, I recommend giving Denpa at least a try.

This manga also tends to update rather quickly compared to most (once every two weeks, I suppose?), so you’ll never feel barren for weeks just waiting for the next chapter to come out. This is also Takeshi Azuma’s second serialization in a shounen magazine. His first being Super Dreadnought Girl 4946. I hope to see many more great things from this mangaka as I’m finding Denpa Kyoushi wildly entertaining.

Anime/Manga Question of the Week #3

That’s right everyone, this shit still exists. It has been one incredibly busy semester and I have put some things on the back burner for the time being, just like that my AMF show that kinda sorta still exists, somewhat. But fear not, for I am here to give you another Question of the Week. This week’s question won’t be as creative as the last two (actually none of them have been creative) because I kind of just thought this up at the last minute just so I could get this back up and running and actually make a post on the site for once. So this week’s question is:

Anime/Manga Question of the Week: Week #2

Sorry for the delay on week 2 of this post. Last week was incredibly hectic and busy what with school and me having to work a 40 hour week at work. But fear not, for I come with a new question to rattle your brains….ponder within your subconscious….tickle your fancy? Ah fuck it, I had a hard time thinking of some new and clever question so you guys are just gonna have to deal with this for the week until I think of something more thoughtful and interesting. So your Anime/Manga Question of the Week for this week is:

Sankarea: Greenlit for an Anime

Well this is somewhat unexpected. One of the mangas I’ve been following for quite awhile, Sankarea, is getting an anime adaptation. For those who don’t know, Sankarea tells the story of a zombie-obsessed teen who attempts to revive his dead cat. However, as he manages to (somewhat) successfully do so, he also brings back the corpse of a popular idol from an all-girl’s school. He then struggles to preserve her body before it can rot away. There’s no word yet which studio it will be done by or when it will even be released (Hopefully before 2012 is over). But this is good news! For me, at least. Sankarea has a nice mix of romance, comedy, and drama, that work quite well for an adaptation. Unfortunately, scantalators can be extremely slow with pushing out more chapters of Sankarea, and I mean, one chapter every 4 to 5 months. Holy hell is it a wait for just one chapter. I do recommend people go pick this up and give it a quick read, as it only has some 20ish chapters translated at the moment. Meanwhile, I’ll be marking down calendar dates till the day that adaptation comes out.


Anime/Manga Question of the Week: Week #1

Hello huge picture that is huge because Lerxst can’t resize

I really couldn’t figure out a better title than this in the entire week that I had since my last post about this, or even a better picture to go along with it for that matter. If this weekly post picks up maybe I’ll think of something more clever or catchy and a picture that better suits this post. But anyways, I think I will start off Week 1 with this question for discussion:
