Hooray, now you can join the Flying Witch book club :grin:

(I actually seriously recommend that one for beginners - it’s one of the easiest “non-baby” manga I’ve encountered)

Mine arrived today, also much earlier than I expected! It contained these manga, which I have never heard of, but look forward to finding out more about :grin: The backs of the Dreamin’ Sun ones look super cute!

Anyone else keep reading the topic title as “Box o’ Manga”?

Silver spoon is from the same author as full metal alchemist, and I love both despite how different the settings are.

There’s also an anime for silver spoon that was good but only got 2 seasons unfortunately

I just finished reading the final volume of Silver Spoon the other week, albeit in English. Loved the series the whole way through, but I’m a little bit saddened about how the speed of time passing accelerates towards the end. Like, I was enjoying seeing Hachiken’s life in detail, and suddenly we’re leaving bits of it behind.

I haven’t gotten to reading through the whole thing right now so I can’t comment about the end just yet. I like reading though it as I get the physical volumes but college means a slow build due to translated stuff being $$$.

Good to know the whole thing is finished though! Maybe I’ll put it higher up on my priority list again.

Was it officially translated though to the end? or did fan translations get ahead and official volumes lag behind.

Officially translated to the end. The publishers are getting much better at keeping up, especially now that TokyoPop and Del Rey aren’t snapping up all the licences and then just sitting on them. (Yeah, I’m still annoyed at them for Aria, even if they’ve finally gotten around to finishing the series.) :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s only fifteen volumes, anyway.

That’s cool, I’ll probably start grabbing them again now that I know it’s finished

Only fifteen volumes but also 50% more expensive than your average JUMP volume

Manga is weird like that. Can you imagine buying 15 iterations of an average book and saying it’s on the shorter end?

Granted, a book can hold a lot more information in a page than than manga/comic, but you’re paying a similar price.

The website allows you to just pause your subscription, so that’s what I did, just want one box to check it out.
