Beastars is surprisingly entertaining. Been reading it for the past few months.

Dungeon Meshi really needs an anime...this is just a matter of time now.

@koto where did you find the information? I cannot find the Japanese source with the reading, so I just go with ohima because the kanji 暇 reads hima.

@koto is right. The title of the manga is Nagi no Oitoma. I have it in my ptr for a while. The English title is Nagi's Long Vacation.



Look up お暇 instead. You'll get Oitoma.

TPN is too low in that list, but good thing Beastars won.

YES!!!!!! I've been reading Beastars for a while now, and I'm so happy and proud that it won the famous Manga Taisho. This manga definitely is great. AMazing, actually. I'm also happy to see
Runway de Waratte, and Yakusoku no Neverland. Those two dramas are chillingly good.
But Beastars made me bounce up in down with excitement when I read.... Chapter 38, I think? The part where Haru denied to lose her life in humility, and stood up for herself. Just remembering that happen, I feel so good for her....
Fumetsu no Anata e is one of my favourites, too.
I'm rooting for all these manga!
