I could think of no entries for X and I don't have any for Z, either: as with the letter J, I know of titles beginning with those letters, but I haven't read any of them myself. Hence, this will be my final post.

My thanks to everyone who have stucked with me through this! If you have any thoughts about this entry or earlier ones, I'd be delighted to hear them. ♥

So there we are then - from 20th Century Boys to Yotsuba& (not a shabby pair of book-ends if I may say so), this is my manga alphabet at the moment. What about yours?

Now I realise that for both my V entries I again only have two titles where I've ordered and read the French translations as none exist in English and my attention span for scanlations suck. At least in this case I do know that scanlations exist for both of them. Though when it comes to Vinland Saga at least, I'm honestly baffled there's no English translation for it.

Still, now I kinda wish I'd read the oft-praised Vagabond so I could offer one rec that's actually out in English in a real print version.

As always, please share your V recs if you have any, and feel like it!

What starts with a U in your manga/anime alphabet?

First, a note on two titles that could have been here but wasn't: Saint Young Men/Saint Oniichan will instead be covered under V for its French translation, Vacances de Jésus et Bouddha.

I thought about including the josei manga Suppli by Mari Okazaki, but I've only read the 5 volumes translated into English, after which it seems to have gone into permanent hiatus. The French translation continues beyond that, but I haven't read any of it yet. And while I saw much to like in the first five volumes, it feels like the kind of romance story where I would like to read it until the end before I rec it. EDIT as of June 2013: I've now finished the story: my rec post for it is here./edit

These are all the recs I can think of for now! What starts with an R in your manga (and anime) alphabet?

OK, OK, I know I'm cheating badly with this one. While I did first read this manga under its French title Quartier Lointain, it has since been translated to English as A Distant Neighbourhood, so I should really have covered it under D. (Especially as that's the version I actually own.) But there were plenty of other D titles, and no Q titles at all; besides, I figured that if you can't cheat when it comes to Q, when can you cheat? Also, Quartier Lointain just has a nice ring to it. (If anyone's curious, the original Japanese title is Harukana Machi E.)

Do you have any manga (or anime) recs for N?

I have a feeling that if I'd read more than just Volume 1 of Love Roma, it would have ended up here, quirky and fun as I found it. Sadly I decided to read that volume about four years too late, and so far I haven't been able to find more from anyplace that would ship them easily.

Okay, so J turns out to be the first letter I'll have to concede defeat on. I know there are translated manga out there for it (like JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, Jormungand, Joan...), but try as I might, I can't recall even having read any of them, let alone knowing I'd recommend them.

Not only that, but the same goes for anime... and creators.

Do you guys know of any good manga or anime that start with J which you would recommend..?

(As for me, I guess I'll just have to move on to K right away!)
printfogey: (Hana yes)
Here we go with H! Art school students, ghostly go players, and a samurai with a social phobia - great letter! Do you have any more recs beginning with an H?

At first I intended to include Yoshiharu Tsune's L'homme sans talents (French translation) here, but on second thought I'll abstain from that. I really like Tsune's quiet, poetic storytelling, and the art wroks well for me too. But it's all so unrelentingly bleak I don't think I can recommend it as a manga I enjoyed.

I've only got one manga entry for G... does anyone want to add more? (I've heard some good things about Glass Mask for instance, but I haven't read a thing of it myself.)

Whew, the anime entries are supposed to be quite brief, but I guess they ballooned a bit this time!
