My resolution this year was to stop reading twitter on my lunch break and get back into Manga.
I used to read it was a teen online and now it’s easy to get and read on my phone. Easy to dip into in a half hour break, unlike a novel. I want something to relax with.
A comic page can also convey a lot of information on a page quickly. Chapters are short and the app remembers my page.
Here’s what I have been reading:
A list in genres
- Chi’s Sweet Home
- Junji Ito’s Cat Diary
- Gokushufudo: Way of the House Husband
- Saint Young Men
- That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime
- Skull-face Book Seller Honda-san
- Haven’t You Heard I’m Sakamoto
- Romance - Smut is not a relaxing lunch companion
- The Ancient Magus’ bride
- Renai Idenshi XX
- Horrifying true account of Hiroshima
- I Saw it
- Barefoot Gen
Are the comics good?
That is not a complete list of my reading. There has been more stuff I tried and didn’t enjoy and one-shots that would take too long to list.
I’ve got a post about the comedy manga I have enjoyed.
Is it an improved lunch?
Yes! No getting angry/upset at the news as I’m having a chill time reading about dating a skull-faced wizard or getting a little wound up with retail work memories - I haven’t worked true retail but have been understaffed and overworked - a skeleton book seller.
