Hi Readers and Typers,

The online servers that dish up our favorite manga
are now full of Chinese and Korean comics as well.

Now if you are interested in manga to the exclusion of manhua
and manhwa here are some clues.

The manhua usually have titles that make sense in English
though the translation in the comics may be just as bad as in the
worst translations from the Japanese.

The manhwa is usually a web comic and some of the them
are pretty good and the title might make a little sense. The
published ones of which I have read a couple are often much
better.

Manga don't seem to bother much with title translations
but usually the quality of the internal translation has greatly improved.

While I love many manga very few manhwa are of interest
as the action moves too slowly for me. These may be of
interest to others.

So far I have seen only one manhua which comes up to
manga standards and it has been quiet for some time with no
new chapters out. It is about a dojinshi circle and a
bookstore.

So I try to avoid most manhua which seems to be flooding
the online servers.

Dave you might regret that request. ;^)
Some of these I have not gotten that far with due to
the slowness of releases

Well Dave I am reading Mochi Au Lait's Short One-Shots Collection which
is all light yuri.

Useless Ponko which is a about a housekeeping robot on its final
assignment before it is recycled into 500 yen coins, humorous largely
but with moments of tension. She is serving as companion to an elderly
widower who accepts her more fully after he learns that his wife wrote
the contract.

Onnanoko Gare! which is about a young JK being helped to be more
feminine by a person who is rather ambivalent in deportment.

Joshi Daisei ga Goukon de Onee-san ni Mochikaerareru which seem to be
about a lesbian (sexual)wolf.

Her Elder Sister Has a Crush on Her, But She Doesn't Mind about an
older sister who is apparently interested in HS girls.

The Fallen TS Girl which seems to be an unwilling person moved to a
female body.

Ryunen! Todome Senpai about a sempai-san held back a grade in HS
and her way of getting help from a kouhai she knows.

Dodoma about a supernatural being of ambiguious gender in a European
mythic background seems to be helping people. I don't much
like this one but it might be a more interesting story than I find it.

Hibari ga Naitara Tsukamaete about the reunion in college, one is a
student, the other a dropout, of HS pals. Shounen ai overtones.

Chitchai Kanojo Senpai ga Kawai Sugiru. which might be about a
relatively normal boy/girl relationship.

Today, We Continue Our Lives Together Under the Same Roof which is
about a happy pair of Lesbians much in love.

Yotsuya Kaidan! about a boy who is in love with a girl who disappeared
seems to be a ghost is only hanging around with the boy
who loves her because he can tell her great passion that she is
in love with him. The boy she is crazy about is one of those who gets
hives when he talks to other boys.

Fukakai na Boku no Subete o Well a girlish boy was always alone
and was offered a job at at maid cafe where nearly everyone is transgender.

Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun the ghost haunting the toilet is a boy! Still
he will help lovers.

The Two of Them Are Pretty Much Like This another tale of girls
who love girls.

Oshikake Twin Tail is about a hikkomori who happens to be a trader
working from home online. He lives by himself until the
JK in the title and her mother move in with him. She of the twintails
is an omni-competent housekeeper and cook.

Comic Girls possibly future mangka in a dormitory working to
learn their craft.

Hoshiakari Graphics seems to be about problems of college girls in
shoujo ai relationship.

Ore ga Watashi ni Naru made (Pre-serialization) about a boy whose body
changes sex and his difficulties in adjusting.

Ohayou Toka Oyasumi Toka salary man selfishly, living independently,
who through family complications acquires a family of 4 girls the one
named above who is omni-competent at home, her older
sister and two young twins who are really selfish and centered on
their own relationship. He begins to gain some maturity in caring
for the children.

Dioti Manual ~Kamisamatachi no Ren'ai Daikou~ two supernatural
forces embody themselves and try to learn about humanity.

Momoiro Ome-chen a gender swap and the girl in the Boy's body is
rather agressive and her body does not remember the skills she gained
as a girl. The boy in the Girl's body is rather worried about this.

Trap Heroine which may be complete in 13 chapters but I hope not as it
was rather interesting. Reminders of Hourou Mousoko

Kyou mo Onnanoko wo Kouryaku shita. shoujo ai comedy

Orient a perversion of the tale of Musashi. I call it that
because it totally negates the true story which is far more interesting
than this far-fetched story. I will drop this as soon as I make though
the first chapter,

Fudanshi Kazoku - is a story about a family of men, two or three
boys and a father who are all boys love fans and one is a author/artist
who publishes online.

Dosanko Gyaru Is Mega Cutei is about a Southerner who moves to Hokkaido
and encounters a gyaru (mega cutie) who is very helpful.

Onii-chan wa Oshimai One morning, an older brother wakes up to find
that he has turned into a girl from his genius younger sister’s drugs.
Then Onii-chan has to adjust to her new situation.

MOMO: The Blood Taker a vampire versus detective story.
Seems solid but we will see,

Gal and Otaku can't understand each other Saotome secretly loves Moe
idols even though she is a Gal (Japanese term for popular girls).
Otonashi is what you would consider Otaku (nerd), though she also has a
secret.

After Reincarnation, My Party Was Full Of Traps, But I'm Not A
Shotacon! It’s a reincarnation (temporary) Shota Harem manga.

MAO -The story is set in a “land where two worlds intersect,“ and it
centers on “a strange romance between a boy and girl who meet by fate.“
by Rumiko Takahashi which is why I took a look. Haven't had time
to get far yet.

Asper Kanojo about two misfits living in the same apartment.

Akebi-chan no Sailor Fuku about a girl who was raised to believe that
she should go to an exclusive school in her mothers old uniform. The
school has since modernized their uniform so she will be standing
out.

Kyougaku Koukou no Genjitsu A comedic take on the daily lives of
students in a co-ed high school.

Vampeerz, My Peer Vampires a girl is bitten and now must live by
the rules of the vampire group. She finds it overly restrictive.

Chocolate Vampire This school is funded by Kagari Ritsuki family. Yuki
is the youngest child of Kagari Ritsuki brothers, and and idol in the
school. On the other hand, Kashiwagi Chiyo hates Yuki… The truth is Yuki
is a vampire, and he always drink Chiyo’s blood. Why does she give her
blood to someone that she hates? Is there any secret between those two?

Kanojo ni Naritai Kimi to Boku another tale of gender and emotional
confusion between childhood friends.

Territory M no Juunin - Because of her parents divorce, Ema moved to
her mother hometown, ginnezu town. this is the meeting of her with
weirdos who stay in the same building...

Fusoroi no Renri - two women in love sharing and the problems
with the demands of the salariwoman lifestyle.

Jibun ga Twintail no Kawaii Onnanoko da to Omoikonde,
Kyou no Dekigoto wo 4koma ni Suru manga A 4koma of what
Roots(author) does with his life, but portraying him as a
girl with twintails. Not as funny as they think it is.

The Undead Lord of the Palace of Darkness
Author: Tsukikage Genres: Action Fantasy
Striking the infected with incessant pain that runs throughout the body,
a strange, debilitating, and deadly illness. The life of the boy who had
suffered several years with this affliction had come to end with little
time for him to despair as he died without an attendant by his side.
When he awoke again, he had been made into the lowest ranked undead by
anevil necromancer. Though the boy rejoiced at having obtained a body
that could not feel pain, he immediately realized that he was still at
the mercy of others. There was no large difference between his present
situation and being confined in bed. However, because the boy wished
for peace, he couldn’t leave the world as it was. This could be a
great story,

Sukeban Arashi Ongoing 3.25
Author: KURUMADA Masami Genres: Shounen School Life
What can I say? the rough but kindly student carries
Nunchuks under her garter and is always ready to cut
loose on someone 3 times her size. She is, as so often
persecuted by a noble lady of her own age with too
much money and an evil servant in the guise of
chauffeur. They try to turn her boyfriend against
her but she saves the day eventually.
I have seen this plot with a heavier girl depicted
as the heroine. I looked this up and it marked the
take off of a mangka's career it seems.

Pursuit: Blind Man Blues Ongoing 0.0
Author: Gyimah Opare Genres: Martial Arts Horror Psychological
Seinen Doujinshi
PURSUIT the graphic novel series by Gyimah Opare
a.k.a Abeeku Vassall is about 23-year old blind musician
Gutaale (Ethiopian for “Leader of Armies“)traveling
the apocalyptic world of the the unknown future. In many
societies there are processes by which people find their
place. This is known as “Rites of Passage“. After finishing
his, Gutaale travels to the outside world in which he is
met with a peculiar situation, having to solve a series of
murders. Conspiracies, dramatic turns, and tragedy.
These are three things that are present within the
mysterious outside wasteland. What will he encounter?
How will he solve these acts of cruelty and bring
peace to the spirits of the dead This is uncertain....
Another very good possibility.

Today's Shou-Joke Manhwa Ongoing 0.0
Author: Son Hagi Genres: Comedy, Reverse Harem, Romance, School Life,
Shoujo Webtoons very good humorous stuff.

Transfer Student Ga Ya appears to Grand Master High School’s
three super elites! Who will be the one to steal Ga Ya’s heart? She
outwits most of them.

Tatsubon - shoujo ai romance by JKs excellent stuff.

And to be complete but leave out the web comics I also follow.

Stand Still Stay Silent a Nordic post-apocalytic tale after a disease
kills most of the world and gives rise to trolls and giants as well as
monstrous beasts.

The short notes are about stuff I have loaded on the Cyberfox
but the long notes are from the stuff i recently looked at and the notes
I wrote in my manga log. Manga log started in January 2019 after I
decided the previous anime/manga/history and culture books was unwieldy.
Manga log at 397.5 kb/10,345 lines but I skip some line for readability.

But I forgot to add to the list of what I am following Hyougemono but a
new chapter is online right now so that reminded me
effectively. I know you know about this since it was anime. But
the manga goes on where the anime stops.
