Manga Notes

I haven't been watching much anime the last couple of months, after a several-month binge where I pretty much caught up on things.

Just recently, though, I have started reading some manga online, and when I say some, I mean a metric poot-load.  The problem with it being online is that it's all there and you can always just read one more chapter and there's about a million chapters.

I've probably forgotten some but my recent post sub-heads have been breadcrumbs so I should be able to get most of them.

Anyway, read and recommended:

Komi Can't Communicate - this started it, because I kept seeing Komi memes and didn't know who she was
So I'm a Spider, So What? - not sure how I tripped over it except that its very popular right now
Skeleton Soldier Couldn't Protect the Dungeon - just found this one while browsing and it's, well, read a couple of chapters and see what you think
Melt Away Mizore-chan - just found this one while browsing and laughed my butt off
Dungeon Nursery - apparently this one was abruptly cancelled, but the author pulled off a near-perfect ending anyway
Sword Dad a.k.a Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita - the adventures of a piece of cutlery and his catgirl daughter

Read and pretty decent:

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - bears within bears
A Returner's Magic Should be Special - isekais within isekais
Her Summon - the story isn't amazing, but the art is beautiful and the world-building is interesting

Read and meh:

The one with the dimension-hopping teenage girl con artist
Farming Life in Another World
Potion loli - no it's not actually called that
I can't believe my wife is a hot redhead queen in a fantasy world and I had a month to prepare before getting isekai'd
S-rank Drop Hero
Magical word magician guy


The one where the kid's mother twin-strikes everything
The one where the hero comes back to Earth after defeating the demon king with all his powers intact

1 I even re-read Sword Dad, especially where .
Kumoko is of course crushes everything, and it even has a story, apparently (it's based on LN that is quite a bit ahead of the manga).

Not sure what your problem is with Nonbiri Nouka, it's super funny, especially how he forms a 100-women harem despite only wanting to farm. It's like that meme where Pepe hangs a liberal and says "why did you make me do this, I only wanted to play videogames". I re-read that one too.
I think isekai is not at all mined well for the anime. They have kickass mangas both in conventional iseakai and in chick isekai. And for some reason the studios and directors managed to butcher recent adaptations quite badly. The Deathmarch, How Not to Summon, Sumafo were all underwhelming when compared with the manga.

2 I don't dislike Nonbiri Nouka, just sort of underwhelmed with it.  I might enjoy it more as an anime.

3 Though given the state of recent anime adaptations - I'm with you there, they're not picking the best sources and often not doing a good job with what they do pick - I might not.

4 I suspect that because there is so much Isekai material available, nobody's willing to commit the resources to do one of them well.
