Ah yes I can understand if that was barca I would be so frustrated and I wouldve been like "Life's so unfairrrrrrrrrrrr" but yeah it obviously hurts
What do you say abt signing darwin nunez?he is a good young player but his initial performances dont look that good,I guess that 100M prize tag is affecting him?also how strong are city gonna be?T_T they even signed haland oof

As a barca fan I am happy these days we signed lewy yayyyyyyyyyyyy still I believe we need to sign a defender if we do that i guess we would be able to compete for la liga,theres also a barca vs city in august so I am looking forward to that tho a bit scared that city would humiliate us oof><

Congratulations!! Keep working hard :DDD

I'm glad you're doing fine, I've also been well.

Indeed, while Fruits Basket is amazing already from a writing perspective, it was the technical aspects like the soundtrack and directing that pushed it one step further and made me add it to my top 5 anime of all time.

I'm also waiting for Akatsuki no Yona to finish, as I watched the anime a long time ago when it aired and I really liked what I saw, so I have high expectations for the manga.

Bloom Into You was an amazing manga; I already liked the anime quite a lot, but it never reached the best moments of the manga sadly, due to being cut short and never finished. I'm also a fan of Yuri manga, and I've found that it's a genre that, when not used just for fetishization, tends to have a lot of great works in it. I am currently waiting for Doughnuts Under a Crescent Moon to finish as well, as it seems to be a well-received Yuri manga with an adult cast

I'll definitely read Holyland at some point, since the premise seems interesting as well, thank you for the recommendation. I think I'm going to read Chihayafuru next, as the manga is ending in August so it's the perfect time to start binging it. After that, I think I'll be focusing on Something About Us, Full-Time Wife Escapist, Tsurezure Children and House of the Sun.

Hey there Abhi, it's been a while. Hope everything is going well with you.

I've recently finished "Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty", and man what a manga that was, easily top material. I'll keep my short thoughts on it under a spoiler, to avoid spoling anyone that happens upon this comment.



Overall, it was another work that cemented my love for the Shoujo demographic. Thanks for the recommendation!
AnikiDesu Jul 3, 2:19 AM

Hyeyya been so long bhaiya,How have u been?
Dashiawia Feb 5, 8:59 PM
Cool. I shall respond in due time.
Dashiawia Feb 5, 2:19 PM
Fair enough. I'll give a brief mention to Demon Slayer S2 airing because it's been a visual masterpiece in the action department. Ufotable never disappoints with their fluid, eyegasmic animation!

Let me know what you make of it when you do pick it up. Similar to Odd Taxi, I hadn't originally planned to pick this up because of the cartoonish art style, but after reading a couple of preliminary reviews I was convinced that it's going to be a fun ride.

No worries. It took me a few months to finish both as I was busy, but if given the opportunity, I'd recommend binge reading them. The chapters are fairly short for each, especially Chainsaw Man which has less text on average.
Dashiawia Feb 4, 5:11 PM
Yep. For me there's usually more than a couple of them every season, if we're including sequels.

That's great. Bubbly gyaru types are certainly appealing. This season isn't the strongest when it comes to non-sequel anime, but if I were to recommend a single show it'd be Ousama Ranking. What looks to be a show geared towards kids turned out to be a true hidden gem so far.

I finished Jigokuraku recently, btw. Found it to be a solid, consistent story from start to finish. While it doesn't break new grounds, it handles its characters very well and gives us reasons to care about them. To me, it's superior to Chainsaw Man despite not being as highly rated by the majority.
Diogo_Brando Feb 4, 7:14 AM
I'll definitely get to both of them when I have a bit more experience with the medium, since I feel I will be able to better appreciate them by then. I'll definitely prioritize Sleeping Beauty, Wife Escapist and Something About Us. Once I read one of them, I'll let you know my thoughts. Thanks for the suggestions again!
Diogo_Brando Feb 3, 11:54 PM
I've had Basara in my plan-to-read list for a while, I believe it was Kaushik who recommended it to me a while ago when he read it. I've also added 7 Seeds since it does look quite promising as well. And yes, I'm open to recommendations for webtoons and manhwas as well, even if they're not on MAL, since my primary way of keeping track about the things I watch and read is through my Excel spreadsheet. I mostly just use MAL as a secondary way to update my lists. Something About Us is one I've heard about before as well.

Yeah I get what you mean, Complex Age is one of those manga series where you can't help but smile when you talk about it, considering both the ending and the lessons that it teaches about being into unorthodox hobbies. Definitely a fiction work that will remain in my memory for many years to come, and one I'll happily re-read often.
Diogo_Brando Feb 3, 10:52 PM
I actually tried submitting an image for Nagisa's character, but like you said before, it apparently was not approved. I think a good start for making this manga a bit more popular on MAL would be to add all the main characters, as well as images and biographies for all of them, but it seems like the mods won't approve for some reason. Given the chance, I'd love to spend an afternoon on it, but I don't know how to contact the mods to ask for permission to do that. It's a bit frustrating, but it seems the only way is to spread the manga as much as we can to our acquaintances. Especially the ones who would be able to relate to the themes being explored.

Ah those two manga series you linked look pretty good. I actually have been meaning to read Sleeping Beauty for a while since it's been quite praised among manga readers. I'm adding Wife Escapist to the list too. I've noticed that I tend to favor Shoujo and Josei when it comes to manga series (from my very limited experience with the medium, and also since a lot of my favorite anime come from Shoujo and Josei mangas like Chihayafuru and Shouwa Rakugo), so I've no doubt I'll enjoy both of them when I get around to reading them. In fact, I recently read the seminal work for the Shoujo genre (Rose of Versailles) and enjoyed it quite a lot. The Historian in me also enjoyed reading about the effect it had on the manga industry at large.

And yes, if you come across any more hidden gems that are unfairly rated, I'd love it if you let me know, since while I tend to slack a lot on manga as a medium, I'm always open to suggestions, and I've been wanting to get into the manga medium more as of late. Thanks for the recommendations!
Dashiawia Jan 30, 1:04 PM
Yeah, same. With the sheer variety this medium offers, I just can't see myself ever getting bored with anime.

That's nice to know. The art style also looks appealing on first glance. I'm good for now on SOL shows this season with Takagi-san S3, Dress-Up Darling, and Akebi-chan, but I'll pick up that one when I'm out of good SOL shows to watch.

Yes, she has a great personality and her charisma really grows on you the more you get to know her. But even more than that, it's very wholesome to see her interactions with Gojou. The two have polar opposite personalities, and yet they complement each other fantastically. I'd be disappointed if this doesn't get a sequel one day. I think it will, though, considering how well-received it has been so far.
Diogo_Brando Jan 30, 6:30 AM
I agree with everything you wrote in your reaction. It really is a wonder of a manga that provided a relatable experience unlike anything I've seen or read before. I've watched a lot of anime that attempt to be relatable but never felt like those shows "understood me", if that makes any sense. But when reading Complex Age, I felt understood, as if the work itself was talking to me. It's one of those manga that work best when you read it in your adult years and start noticing changes around you (and in yourself). At first I just thought it would be a manga about coping with having a socially awkward hobby, but it turned out to have a much larger overarching theme about the different ways we relate to our hobbies and what they can mean to us.

Besides the amazing thematic value that the manga had for me, the friendship that Nagisa and Kimiko had was another great highlight of the manga that I really enjoyed. Especially with how they were able to stay friends even when Kimiko gave up cosplay after all those years. It showed that their friendship had more to it than just a common interest. And I found it interesting that she found a new passion (photography) through her cosplay hobby.

It's interesting how it showed the many different dimensions of what a hobby can do to people. It's meant to be fun and that's the main reason why we persist with it, but it always comes with its sad moments and it can become incredibly destructive if it goes out of control (like it happened with Riu, the girl that tried to get Nagisa all for herself). Nagisa's answer to the problem in the end was just one possibility, one that makes a lot of sense considering her character, but you could see a lot of different answers by looking at the rest of the cast, and it's very likely that the reader will have a different answer as well. It's what makes the ending so good: it felt like a proper, realistic answer to the problem being presented, something I rarely see when such a complex theme is being studied.

It really is a very sad thing that the manga is so unpopular. It's very strange too because I'd think this sort of theme would resonate with a lot of people who are into anime and manga, at least the ones who persist with these hobbies into their late 20s. Maybe it's a lack of exposure? I'd really like to get people to notice this manga and give it a chance in the future though, because I feel it can be incredibly useful for many people struggling with the same dilemma that Nagisa is facing.

Hey there Abhi, hope you're doing well.

So earlier today Kaushik told me he had read Complex Age and recommended it to me. He also mentioned you were a big fan of it. I decided to read the first volume on a whim and found myself so immersed in it that I ended up reading the entire manga all in one sitting. It's honestly been a long time since I was so engaged with a fictional work, mostly because I could relate to the characters so much, as my hobbies were always regarded as being strange by those around me, so a lot of the things that the characters went through actually resonated with me. But more than anything, it made me reflect on what my hobbies mean to me, why I keep watching anime after all these years despite having seen the uglier sides of the industry and the hobby itself for example. It really made me think about how many different answers there are to this question and how they're all correct in the end, because hobbies mean different things to all of us and that's fine. It truly was an outstanding work of fiction in every regard, it's been a long time since I enjoyed reading something so much, especially considering I don't read a lot of manga. A real wonder how it can be rated so low. Just thought I'd share my thoughts about it with you.
