Bird Cafe is a 4-koma manga about some birds who run a cafe. It is kind of cute but i only laughed a few times and there were only two chapters. I recommend it if you specifically want to see a few pages containing moe birds.

Sound of the Star is a one shot manga about a girl who skips out on trumpet practice to talk with a fairy. It gave me goosebumps but that might have just been because it kind of synced up with the music i was listening to it was nice but didn't really leave an impact on me.

⑨’s is a touhou dj about tenshi and some girl with green hair. I didn't really understand what was happening but the drawings were nice.

The Twilight Trio is a strike witches one-shot in which eila thinks about her relationship with sanya and miyafuji. It is based around the events in my favourite strike witches episode: strike witches season 2: episode 6: higher than the sky. The manga was okay but nothing really happened.

The Dream of an Elephant is a one-shot about the elephant man's friendship with jack the ripper. It has a pretty nice aesthetic and a pretty simple story. I liked it.

Suicide Parabellum is a manga by the same guy that did the last one i read. There's just the first chapter out but it is a nice hook. I guess the girl needs to find the other girl over and over again on a time limit. The style really interests me though I am going to look up more stuff by this guy, i actually read a 4-koma thingy by him before that was really neat

Ayame and Amane is a manga by Dowman Sayman who did the last two things too. This one was 22 chapters but each chapter was only two pages. huh. It is a comedy manga about a girl who makes inappropriate advances on her friend. It is kind of gross but was pretty funny overall. The aesthetic that I was hoping to found in this manga wasn't really there though.

Oddman 11 is the last Sayman manga i will read for now. It is ongoing and is about a girl who wants to go out with this guy but she needs to beat all his ex girlfriends first. Also all his ex girlfriends are beings called oddmen who are like regular people with special features or something. There's one who is a squid and another who can't wear clothes. The manga is NSFW and pretty sexual and sort of depraved so I would recommend staying away from it if that is not your cup of tea. It was pretty funny overall and I was interested in seeing how it developed but it is ongoing so oh well.

Doki Doki Summer Beach is an ecchi one-shot that wasn't that great. The character's personalities were kind of cute and there was a really good drawing of a whale shark which you can see above

Please tell me it's literally a Rule 63 shot for shot remake of Scott Pilgrim.

Also, i recommend Sandland, Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, Battle Royale, the Phoenix Wright mangas, Monster.

@door (dooooooooooor): the reason why manga' are printed backwards, at least in the way we read things, is because Japanese writting is read from right to left instead of left to right. So naturally books read better for them in the opposite direction.

Also may have to check out some of these...

Personally enjoyed the Getbackers myself, would like to see what you think of it, Lilan. (Though sad the series likely will never be completely released here...)

it is nothing like scott pilgrim despite apparently being based on it.

battle royale was excellent in a terrible sort of way. The part where the character duct-tapes his innards back into his body and says "gotta stay frosty" is one of the best scenes in any story.

i am reading get backers

august monster, which i like to call monster of summer, is a bittersweet one-shot about a girl's first experience with love. idk why but it somehow felt really human to me and it made me feel a lot of feelings. I've read it a dozen times over the months since i first found it

Mm.
Consider trying Hakobune no Yukue if you can find it in English.

i read an erotic adventure time doujin the other day idk if there are any manga adaptations of steven universe

i tried finding Hakobune no Yukue but it seemed nobody has translated it. I recognized the art though, the mangaka also wrote something called Dare nimo Ienai i guess which was pretty groovy and felt really human as well. i wonder if i can find my favourite page from it

If you liked that, you might like Naive and Honeymoon Salad, as well.

...Once again, if you can find them in English.
