It's time for Yuno-chan's Manga Stand!
This week's recommendation for you to read is Hana ni Arashi by Kobachi Rukahttps://yuri-project.net/hana-ni-arashi-ch01/
It is a very cute and well drawn yuri manga about two high school girls, Chidori and Nanoha who are hiding their relationship from everyone they know. It's nothing sexy or suggestive, but it is still very cute and has two attractive characters! Give it a shot, I'm sure if you enjoy yuri manga and you don't already know about this, you will like it.

Goodbye Isekai Tensai is one of the few Isekai (along with Bokura no Kiseki) I'd actually call good and original.
That's a no, then.
I mean, I'm pretty sure the actual kanji in manga basically just means "comics", so anything in that format probably counts?>>28138

Reading Ruin Explorer Fam & Irhlie.
I finished the OVA, but for some reason didn't even consider it was based off of a manga. I guess I thought the OVA was just based off a PS1 game or something.
I think the writing and sequences of events are much better thought out in the manga. The anime's animation was beautiful, but it contradicted itself sometimes and didn't make a lot of sense. Also they added in Muttley from Wacky Races as an anime only character for some reason, wheezy laugh and all.
Well this is great news

I started Succubus ni Tensei shita node Milk wo Shiborimasu.
I usually dislike isekai, but this is the kind of shameless self inserting I can get behind.
And the overpowered gift is actually original and funny. An invulnerable cow that can eat anything.
I found out about this manga not two days ago actually. How is it? I heard it's basically just about the MC being a slut but?
File: s21.jpg (442.54 KB, 1008x1434) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
I'm on chapter 8, and MC isn't much of a slut. He's just super oblivious to the fact he's a giganto titted girl, I think his purity is what causes misunderstandings.
It's fun so far, as mentioned it's a shameless self insert I actually enjoy, and finally there's a gender bender manga with some yuri and no secret keeping bullshit, and an isekai MC who tells the first people he finds, "Yeah I'm reincarnated, I'm from Japan, that's why I'm clueless about this stuff".
Also the mangaka finds really interesting ways to get around censorship. There was one panel where you saw the MC's pussy reflected in the pupils of someone who saw it, and you got the upper right panel on this where it's clearly a vagina but it's "just a field, censor. Just a fucking field, bro."
I remember TLR:D doing the pupil bullshit at least, it was hilarious.
I wonder why moral police do this sort of thing really. What's even the point of censoring this stuff?
It's some weird old Meiji era law that no one has the motivation to change. I imagine that anyone who would put forward a proposal to change would be ridiculed and lambasted for doing so. Or perhaps anyone who wishes to put forward a proposal to change it is afraid that they will be ridiculed and lambasted for doing so.
I think it was also TLR that got around the censor through a reflection in a faucet.

I'm gonna post cute images of the cute MC!!
That doesn't really sound right though because old porn, like from the 90s and stuff, wasn't censored. It feels like a more recent addition, or maybe people just didn't realize the law applied and someone decided to make it apply because he had a stick up their ass.
But it is. Here's the Criminal Code:>Article 175. (Distribution of Obscene Objects)>A person who distributes, sells or displays in public an obscene document, drawing or other objects shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not more than 2 years, a fine of not more than 2,500,000 yen or a petty fine. The same shall apply to a person who possesses the same for the purpose of sale.
This has been on the books since 1907. The current interpretation is to be lenient about it while not changing the law itself. This is why it's okay to just put a mosaic or a few black bard over the penis or vagina and it doesn't count under Article 175. Technically and in the spirit of the law, the current methods of censorship should be illegal. And yes, old porn from the 90s was censored. You would need to provide a source on what you have because as far as I know, all porn made in Japan has to be censored.

This is a good thread. I feel like I've been missing out because I never really read manga unless it was after a show aired or I found something cool being posted around. I've got tons of material to work with now.
I found a really nice manga but it doesn't seem to be being actively translated into English.
I could translate these from the Chinese if you guys want but I can't typeset or clean worth shit. Have a read and tell me what you think?
This is funny because I too recently picked up that manga and was considering making an offer/request like yours, only in my case it'd be from Japanese.
I'd do Japanese but I'm obviously more confident in my Chinese even if I'm theoretically fluent in nip, and also because I have an easier source of CN raws.z
I wonder if there's any interest though.
I've also picked up "Witch's Workplace Experience" is how it was translated, haven't looked for it in English yet.

I find it sort of surreal how Hitler and Putin show up so often in manga. I wonder why. I mean I guess they don't from an objective point of view, but they show up more than you'd expect them to ever be relevant. It's also weird how they're not always presented as either good or evil, and sometimes they're caricatures and sometimes they're real people that you can even feel for.
The source is Billy Bat Ch. 100 in case anyone didn't know.
Billy Bat disappointed me a little, perhaps I expected too much from it having liked Naoki Urasawa's other works. It is by no means bad but it started very strongly and sort of teetered as it progressed.

It's about a girl who's good at acting taking on different 'roles' for her senpai. Nice and cute. No plot progression so far, though it's only 24 chapters and it's a twitter manga.

It's about a girl with a FAT ass (as you can see) being spooked by weird abominations.
It's only eight chapters so far but the girl is really cute and the abominations look, uh, actually sort of terrifying really. More uniquely, there doesn't seem to be any shonen-style saviour coming for her and so far there's no indications she'll ever be used to it.
Give it a whirl when you guys have time.
As an interesting side note, the "mangaka" (webmangaka? twitterka?)'s wife also writes these little web manga. Hers is about childcare, I think.

I've been following this, and wasn't the kitten chapter just that?
She used her power to give the kittens a proper loving home, and found out one of the abominations is a protector of kittens.
Also, there are 8 chapters? I've only read 5, and thought it stopped getting updates 5 months ago.
She's learned to harness her powers but I don't think that's the same as getting used to it. I mean from what I've seen she's only edging closer and closer to cracking completely.>stopped getting updates
I think the eighth chapter came out like a couple of days ago.

I read on Mangadex and only chapters 1 - 5.1 are up on there.
Not him but it seems to be updated on mangadex now. https://mangadex.org/title/31792/mieruko-chan
You might have been looking at the pre-serialization.
I find mangadex to be slow sometimes, if you’re really following a series religiously i’d RSS the BU page or the translators blog
Well yeah, it doesn't help that mangadex has a weirdly strict anti-sniping policy for scan groups and doesn't upload 'official' chapters. But for the most part it's a reasonably fast site.

I thought they said it was impossible to kill them entirely?
It looked like Knives took out the hive mind, but then the creepy dude with the bug in his throat brought the coin to Vash. That'd make me think either the hive mind survived or Zazie was still at least a few bugs.
Zazie was easily the Gung Ho Gun I found most interesting, but also the only character to really be left open ended in the ending. We get closure on everyone except them.
I watched the anime last year with Samachan, it was pretty cool to finally have some context for the random episodes I saw as a kid. Does the manga cover anything the anime doesn't? My memory is really awful…

Last time I went shooting was the first time I fired a .45
I'm a kinda short guy with small hands, so I figured a compact would be a better fit for my hands than a full size, and a USP was a cool gun so why not.
I didn't consider .45 from a compact, polymer pistol would equal fuckhuge recoil.
I didn't exactly have a good time after 50 rounds of that.

Yeah, I might buy another one once I have the money honestly. It's probably just because I was used to it but it's a lot more comfortable in my hand than other handguns I've shot>Last time I went shooting was the first time I fired a .45
I've never fired anything more than a 9mm out of a handgun, I found that to be fairly controllable. The CZ75 is full sized and has a metal frame though which helps. I'd like to try shooting a revolver in .357 or .44 some time.

Post it on Samachan if you do.
Use Gunsmith Cats as an excuse to do so.
The one in the pic was yours?
9mm generally is more controllable than .45ACP, yeah. Although some people say that even if the recoil is more mild, it's "snappier" whereas while .45's is a big kick it's a rather smooth kick at that.
Next time I shoot I definitely wont be getting another compact polymer gun. I'll have to deal with big boy grips.
I was like pic related by round 40 through the USP .45c. I'm fucking pathetic.
Also, back on the subject of manga, just finished Vol 1 of Gunsmith Cats.
I find it weird that Sonoda keeps feeling the need to show the goons alive after shootings and bombings, when in the very first gunfight of the manga Rally outright kills a henchman for getting in the way of her bounty by shooting him smack dab in the chest.
The rest of Vol 1 she's only killed two really sadistic big bads who were shown killing innocent people for sport.
Makes me feel really bad for that Chapter 1 first firefight henchman.

Pic related, this guy.
The rest of the manga she just shoots the thumbs off goons and kills psychopathic lunatics out to kill her, but this guy wasn't even trying to kill her.
I know I shouldn't get hung up on it but it doesn't make sense to me.
Ahh Rally's such a cutie
I ought to read the manga sometime>The one in the pic was yours?
Yeah I got fancy wood grips.>>29572
From what I remember of the OVA she kills plenty of random goons in that, there's a scene where some guys break into her house and I'm pretty sure she just kills them all. I could be misremembering though.
She's definitely cute.
The manga's worth a read, art is very good.>fancy wood grips
Very nice. Shame you didn't hold onto it but don't beat yourself up over it either.
>there's a scene where some guys break into her house and I'm pretty sure she just kills them all
There's a chapter in Vol 1 where three people broke into her house in the manga, too, and all of them survived.
She made a point to shoot one in both shoulders and a knee, and the others got hit with a grenade by May while driving away but were shown alive in a car wreck afterwards covered in smoke like some sort of Loony Toons cartoon.
If it didn't have moments like that, Rally offing that one henchman at the start would be less jarring.
I guess it's sorta like how Batman started off murdering fools but DC re-worked him to never kill. I hate bringing up Western comics on Samachan but it's what comes to mind.

Also I miss character designs like this, it'd be nice to see big hair and big 90s eyes come back.
Good to know.
I definitely agree, I LOVE 90s hair and eyes.
Also cute armpit!! I don't recall the manga getting any pit service yet, it's mostly Rally losing her pants or top and May blowing a bunch of dudes (not with explosives) and masturbating.

Whoa, gun talk on samadono. Gunsmith Cats is one of my old favorites for sure. The Black Horse translation isn't perfect but it's a very American manga so I mind the liberties less. I was way more bothered by the censorship and the flipped format but the collected volumes Black Horse put out a few years later fixed that for the most part so I won't hold that stuff against them too much. It was the 90s after all. Sonoda's genius carries the whole thing irregardless. I'm excited for the new Riding Bean OVA.>>29574
She kills plenty of people, goons and mooks mostly. I don't remember that well but I think the later volumes get more violent. I distinctly remember several headshots. There's plenty more fanservice too though.>>29514>>29571
It's a bit of a cliche to say it now after the CZ fad ran its course but genuinely believe the CZ75 is the pinnacle of handgun ergonomics. Even the subcompact 2075 feels more natural in the hand than my own cock, though it's also pretty much about as big and heavy as a regular compact but shorter on both axes.
Are you sure your posture and grip were adequate? I'm mostly into steel framed service pistols and revolvers but I'm also not very big and have pretty small hands and I don't have much trouble with big bore stuff. Standard .45 ACP loads shouldn't really be too much worse than 9mm Luger if you can shoot that comfortably, even from a lighter and smaller gun.

I've been reading (and posting) the collected volumes of Black Horse. They're all downloadable off archive.
That's fine if she kills plenty of people later, but as said I've just finished reading Volume 1, and so far she's only killed a psychotic bitch out to mutilate her who killed a pedestrian asking if she was okay, a piece of shit rapist also out to kill her who shot his hostage after he said he'd let her go, a revolver specialist who Rally was actually sad to kill, and that one random goon I posted who wasn't even trying to kill Rally. So the goon just felt off.
If she kills more goons later then that's fine. It just felt uneven to me where I'm at.
If I'm being honest, my posture was shit. Because I grew and still live in a State with gun laws worse than Canada I never grew up shooting so I've been mostly self taught as an adult by driving out of State and renting at ranges.
On top of that I'm near sighted in my shooting eye due to an accident I had as a kid. Since I'm only near sighted in one eye and rarely shoot, I never needed to get glasses or contacts or anything like that, but obviously when I'm shooting it fucks me hard, and I ended up bending the elbow and wrist of my shooting arm and holding the USP a bit too close to my face so I could actually make out the sights.
In hindsight I should have just closed my good eye with bad vision and tilted my head a bit, using the other eye, but I didn't know how that worked at the time. I'll definitely do that next time I go shooting, since I still haven't gotten glasses.

Yeah I've had most of those problems too. I'm also entirely self-taught. Everybody gets better with practice and research. I've worn glasses most of my life so I can't really say anything about the nearsighted thing though. I was told it gets worse faster if you don't wear corrective lenses but I don't know if that applies to nearsightedness from injuries or just congenital conditions like mine.
I wish I had my own land so I could just screw around on it and do whatever I want without having to go out of my way and pay other people for the privilege. Going to ranges is a pain in the ass.
Also I think several of my clothing fetishes might have been Sonoda's fault. I finished off Burst a few years ago but it's been a long time since I've read the whole series. Might be time to revisit it.

Glad to hear I'm not alone.
I recall my eye doctor actually recommending I not get glasses or contacts since it would be a waste of money, given I can see fine with my other eye.>I wish I had my own land so I could just screw around on it and do whatever I want without having to go out of my way and pay other people for the privilege.
That, and I wish my State would make it legal to buy an sell literally any semi-auto rifles in .223 that aren't the Mini-14 or Tavor.
I'm not joking, this place is Orwellian. I went into a state of depression when our gun grabbing criminal attorney general won reelection last year.
Even Canada has ARs and AKs.
He definitely puts a lot of attention into clothing.
Did Gunsmith Cats help get you into firearms, or is it something you checked out due to interest in them?
I'm the latter, but a different manga DID help get me into firearms, although it's significantly less cool and well written.
I usually get confused responses when I say Elfen Lied got me into firearms, but the Desert Eagle and Bandou were just so fucking cool to me when I was a teenager that it definitely gave me a push.

I've always been into both weapons and manga. Aircraft, ships, whatever. When you're a kid your interests just kind of all meld together and you can't really remember which exactly led to what. Manga with military and other weapons-related themes just scratched more than one itch at a time. GSC was definitely what first got me interested in CZ stuff and got me more enthusiastic about cars and guns though. Sonoda's tastes just always resonated with mine.
Sounds like you live in MD or MA or something? I guess I'm lucky enough to have lived in places with better laws. State AWBs and licensing schemes on top of the expense and maintenance work inherent to the hobby probably would've made me give up on it a long time ago.
Interesting, weapons was something I grew into as a young teenager rather than liking as a kid. Really the only hobbies I still have today that I've enjoyed since I can remember without having to get into first are animals and anime/manga.
I still haven't found an interest in cars, don't think I will by this point.
You're on the mark, I don't feel too comfortable giving out my State even as anon due to some negative experiences in the past, but it's one of those two.
It's really suffering to try and enjoy the hobby. Only weapon I actually own is a Parker crossbow with a 160lb draw weight, which is pretty fun but no gun. It's actually kind of annoying since the scope broke on my third time shooting just from recoil, and sighting in a scope on something that takes 15 seconds and a little exercise to load is a massive pain.
Whenever I shoot guns, I head out of State to shoot.
I got a hard time at the range I shot the USP at because criminals from my State sometimes go there, buy ammo and rent a gun, don't shoot all the rounds and smuggle them out, bring them back to home and use them for drug related shootings, which usually gets it tracked back to the range and causes them problems. It was obvious they were suspicious of me since I hadn't shown up before and was shooting by myself, they took a good 5 minutes to agree to let me in even after I gave them all my required info.
Bit of a left field question, but have you fired Hi-Point pistols before?
I keep hearing mixed opinions. Some people say they're as durable and reliable as AKs and are actually really good for the price, and others say they're complete junk and wont touch them.
If I ever move to a free State I'd be interested in picking one up simply due to the cost is all.
>>29585>it's mostly Rally losing her pants or top and May blowing a bunch of dudes (not with explosives) and masturbating.
May really is a big perv in the manga huh
They gloss over that aspect of her in the OVA I think>>29588>I'm excited for the new Riding Bean OVA.
The what now?! I didn't hear about that at all, how exciting.>>29589
Shoulder holsters are the coolest>>29591>I never grew up shooting so I've been mostly self taught as an adult
Same here, my family never owned guns so it was something I got into as an adult on my own because I had the interest from military and action anime and manga.>>29595
I've actually never shot at a range, I've been lucky to always have access to land to shoot on. Honestly I'd be a bit nervous going to a range I think.>Also I think several of my clothing fetishes might have been Sonoda's fault.
Rally is a very well dressed lady for sure>>29600
My first gun purchase was my CZ75 and my interest in CZ guns was definitely started from GSC. I'd like to find a decent condition K98 sometime too to go with all my Sora no Woto stuff. I've always liked military themed anime and manga but I only really know anything about guns, I'm certainly not a car person and I don't know much about tanks or boats or anything.>>29603
Sorry to hear about the state situation anonymous, I know the pain. Hopefully you find yourself somewhere better for the hobby sometime.>animals and anime/manga.
Ah I love animals too! Dogs are my favorite but I like pets in general. >have you fired Hi-Point pistols before?
I have not but from talking to people that have I hear that they "just work" and are actually pretty durable, even if they aren't great objectively. I think they get joked about a lot because they're so cheap and they are especially ugly and probably not too comfortable to use.

Yeah, I've heard similar.
If I get out of this State I'll probably look into getting one.
Oh, how very lewd.
I'm gonna be on a plane ride soon so I'm gonna make sure to download the manga to read on it.>I guess I should say that I'm the ferret anon from the other thread.

If you want to, you should. You are a good poster.
>>29603>but have you fired Hi-Point pistols before?
The singular design principle of the Hi-Point pistol is to create the cheapest possible reasonably reliable weapon. It is indeed reasonably reliable, but this is at the expense of everything else one would ask of a handgun. As a simple blowback-operated pistol for rounds up to and more powerful than 9mm Luger, the slide has to be essentially a brick of zinc alloy and steel, which will make itself felt. The safety works but is rudimentary. Ergonomics are nonexistent and operation of the weapon is liable to cause your hands at least as much pain as is felt by your target. You'd have an easier time concealing 428 Cobra Jet engine in your anus than a Hi-Point C9 in an IWB holster. QC is barely passable. It is +P rated, but certain brands of ammunition and certain magazines will not work. The ammunition and magazines that work may vary with each individual specimen. There are no features except the price tag.
So yeah, it's actually a pretty good piece (of junk). The carbines can be fun too.

Surprisingly she killed three goons total. Maybe she kills more in Burst.
Also I was ecstatic to see a Grendel P10 used by Rally more than once! Cute little stripper clip fed pistol!>>29607
May in the manga is the lewdest. I honestly can't imagine her character without being a little horny sex addict. Pic related.

Thanks for all the info. I don't mine some heft from the slide but it's a shame about ergonomics.
That said, poor people (and cheapskates) can't be choosers.
The carbines definitely seem fun, I saw they released a version in 10mm last year!! That actually looked really cool.

Well, I talked about it a little in /z/ but I thought I may as well expand on it.
So basically, historical and/or pseudohistorical (i.e. medieval fantasy) manga can be divided into two types. There's the type that whitewashes history - making the values of 'then' overly similar to those of 'now', and there's the type that does that less.
Now just to be clear I don't mean specifically the protagonist - a protagonist who's 'ahead of their time' makes sense in a lot of ways. Chiefly, the protagonist is often the point of view character, or at least the character we're meant to cheer on and sympathize with. It's extremely useful to have this character also be archaic in values but it's also super risky. It's useful because it becomes difficult to dismiss these values as marginal in their society, or as wrong, something to be replaced, when the protagonist holds these values. It immediately blasts you full force with the idea that yes, this is a different time, a different place, and these people never grew up in the culture you did. But that's also the risk because obviously if you can't relate to the protagonist in any way it becomes hard to really care about him, beyond as a channel for your more base emotions. You can have fun watching him kill and rape but it's hard to really sympathize with him because he arrives at a different conclusion starting from different assumptions.
Now with that out of the way, I mean specifically stuff like early Kingdom. In early (that is to say, everything before roughly this panel, 400+ chapters in) Kingdom, the main character Shin (an expy of the historical general Li Xin) is an extremely generic shounen protagonist. He demonstrates critical thinking and an actual aura of leadership, weighing choices and such, but most of the time it's pretty easy to substitute Naruto or Luffy in for him. He's anachronistically righteous. Not as much as you might think - there weren't 'laws' of war, but there wre conventions and Bai Qi (Hakuki), for example, never really lived down his massacres. It's the amount of support from the rank and file and leadership that's abnormal, he's seen as a paragon of virtue instead of strangely concerned with the fate of tiny villages in enemy territory.
File: x25.jpg (113.6 KB, 728x1057) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
For a contrast to this, look at Vinland Saga. Vinland Saga starts us off with a gutpunch MC - he honestly does not care about the atrocities going on. The author straddles the line - he isn't personally interested in cruelty, and at one point feels sorry for what he does, but he never really regrets it until the start of the infamous Farmland Saga arc. Thorfinn - the MC - is a 'moralistic' character done well, I think. He has his values, but not without reason, and we can actually watch his development from mad warrior to peaceful atoner. What makes this interesting is that while it's painted as a good thing, some otherwise heroic characters in the story itself think he's outright retarded for thinking as he does, while others think he's finally seen the light. We get a nice sense of contrast, and in seeing the contrast we get the sense that here is a world where the things we take for granted are actually under heavy debate. The Vinlandsaga takes place, as historically, around the turn of the millennium, and this is the time when Christianity is finally getting a hold on the Norse world. The main character's moral transition is merely an extreme version of the one the world he lives in is undergoing, and I think that helps with the suspension of disbelief. Even if you didn't know too much about the time period, you can appreciate what's happening because it just fits, it makes sense, and that's the strength of historical fiction above all else, the imagination that 'yeah, this might be really how it happened'.
Now, of course, Vinlandsaga is a much grittier story. Good people don't always get their due, some who deserve to live die anyway while others get away scot-free. There's almost no correlation between being a nice person and having a nice life, and that I think is another thing - it lends itself easier to historical fiction. Historical fiction is bounded by history - if you're writing historical fiction about the Third Crusade, even if you fuck with the details Richard and Philippe have to be driven back, the big picture is what it is. And that means that if you do try to make the story heroic, then with a few exceptions you'll have to butcher the character and take cheap roads out. That lessens the quality of the fiction because anyone reading can tell what just happened.
So basically what I'm saying is that overcorrecting for moral dissonance does a story a disservice. Historical fiction draws its strength from the rich history that surrounds it. The weight of age is what gives the stories their appeal, there's a majesty to such an old story. If you change the values in it so drastically, you sap a lot of the power from the narrative, or at least that's what I think. Even stories that aren't 'really' historical fiction, like Fateshit, could find strengths from the sort of moral differences that you only find between an ancient demigod Irish serial rapist, a jilted bride from Colchis circa Mycenaean Greece, and a butthurt Japanese kid who never really grew up even if he grew brown.
And just to be clear, this problem isn't restricted to manga, Japan, or even the modern world. It's probably human nature, but it's also detracting from the appeal of a historical fiction. Writing a historical fiction means you're drawing from historical happenings, so let the history happen, and from the history find your story.
I read your posts with great interest and I see in you an alternate me, a me who enjoys being engrossed in deep stories with rich, multifaceted characters, and who was about to come into existence when cute anime girls got in the way. I really want to pick up Vinland Saga now, but I know what'll happen if I do: I'll force myself to read it for two weeks and go no further than half a volume before dropping it for lack of cute girls.
Cherish what you have, anon, and keep sharing your passion with us - it shows some of us a glint of a hope long lost.

It's hard for me to understand what it is about 5toubun that makes it popular. The haremshit fad died down quite a bit compared to its peak, and certainly, it's got nothing unique about it. I guess the same goes for Bokuben but that had a decently unique character subplot at the beginning.
Does it really just come down to the art quality? The characterization of 5toubun and Bokuben are laughable and the 'main' girls are 100% not wife material. I might have shit taste but it really is weird how some harems explode onto the front page of magazines while others are dead on day one.
I guess the art is a pretty big factor yeah. I'm not too sure though, its just fun to read, the concept of quintuplets can lead to some interesting situations too.
Miku is also too cute to not read more of this.
>>30308>The characterization of 5toubun and Bokuben are laughable and the 'main' girls are 100% not wife material.
This is an opinion and a shit one at that. What does that even mean? "Wife material" is such a dumb concept because what each person values in a woman is completely different.
>I might have shit taste but it really is weird how some harems explode onto the front page of magazines while others are dead on day one.

I always find it interesting to go through a new manga and see exactly where the author decides to begin setting up his work for long-term serialization and introducing his first long-term plot.
This is really cute.
