Which Magazine to Subscribe?

Hi All,

It has been awhile since I last blogged. I have been really busy with work. So very, very busy that I have little time to do others... There are a few things that I need to catch up on once I am less bogged down with work. ^^ Of course reading and summarising certain manga series rank high in my priority.

I'm thinking of summarising Dakara Koi to Yobanaide/穿越时光的歌声. In the past, I posted 2 chapters of this series with no translation. I wasn't too interested then. Now, after reading the latest chapter, I'm kind of interested to pick this up again. Will give a brief summary of Chapter 1-11 and give a more detailed summary of Chapter 12 (the latest chapter serialised in Cheese!). Look out for it!

Also, I'm owing summaries of Junai Labyrinth/Pure Love Labyrinth. I mentioned in my earlier entry that I will be providing regular summary of this series. I'm still interested in doing so just need to find time. So sorry for those who have been waiting. Will try to get the latest chapter up soon too.

Finally, to all fans of series from Betsuma. I'll not be posting further summaries of any series from Betsuma. This is because I have stopped subscribing Betsuma. Currently, I'm subscribing Cheese! and Lala. To add to these, I'm thinking of subscribing Margaret or Betsufure.





Betsufure on the other hand has Kinkyori Renai and L-DK, etc.

What do you think? Which magazine will you be interested to read summaries from? Let me know your thoughts.

Which magazine should I subscribe to? Margaret or Betsufure?

  7. oooohhhh... I love L-DK. I have in my collection 3 other works by the same mangaka, Watanabe Ayu. Thank you Anonymous for telling us that Bebexiu is summarizing L-DK. Thus, please go to Bebexiu's blog to read L-DK's summaries. Sorry littlememe.

    However, I'm still very tempted to subscribe to Betsufure cos there are other series that pique my interest and Shiro no Eden is one of them. I read a few chapters of it on line and quite like it. ^^

    Hmmm.... I can't decide...

    LDK's being summarized at our website, at Bebexiushoujo, so dunno... don't really see the need. Only if you want to read any other series there.
    I personally am also following the series Kare wa Diablo! by Shimotsuki Kayoko, since she's one of my most favourite mangaka.

    I'd say... go for Margaret? It has Bokura wa Itsumo, Switch Girl, Obaka-chan - to name a few. Anyway, I think it's a lot better than Betsufure.

    And I'm sooo looking forward to your summaries of Dakara Koi to Yobanaide, I just love this mangaka's works!!

    Ohhhhh, y'know what would be great! If you wrote summaries for Natsume Yuujichou T_T I'm such a huge fan of it xD

  14. I like more betsufure for kinkyori renai

  15. Kat@Tatsukida summarized most of her stuff that are from Margaret like Akuma Love Song, Chitos, Koibana, Mei-chan no Shitsuji, and I think Bebexiu does the other half that are listed there.

    The only thing I like from Betsufure is LDK and since Bebexiu's translator already working on that as well, but I like them both.

  16. I'm looking forward to your summaries of betsufure magazine!!

  17. If you're looking for stories to summarize..betsufure
    If you want good stuff..for me hands down Margaret.

  18. Thank you Kanade and Mimi for letting me know which are the series covered by Bebexiu and Kat. I went in and have a look and contrary to what Mimi had described, I don't think Bebexiu is covering the rest of Margaret.

    I believe nobody is summarising Shiro no Eden, Switch Girl, Kinkyori Renai, and many others serialised in these 2 magazines. I love to subscribe both magazines cos I'm interested in the series in both magazines and too lazy to wait for release in tankubon. My only concern is the lack of space. Sigh... these magazines are so bulky!!!

    Switch Girl is not summarized (though I have the first 8 volumes of it), simply because it'salready at its 80-something chapter. I love the series, but I just don't want to summarize endless series, because I'm very limited in time unfortunately. Besides, I'm going to start a scanlation project with one of Asuka scans providers - we're gonna scanlate the Conducter.

    Btw, what about Asuka or Zero-Sum or Hana to Yume?^^
    In my opinion, they're a lot better in terms of quality series than Margaret and Betsufure^^ (but lol, it's just my opinion!^^).
    But anyway, I'm slowlt saving money, so I'm planning on subscribing for all 3 some time in the future T_T

  20. shiro no eden is really a good choice! midnight scan released v01! i really want to read more but seems v02 still doesn't out yet, hope you can think about it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Shiro no Eden Chapter 1 to 4 english scans are already available for download on Anime-tion Scanlation. I think it's only time it will be up on online viewing sites.

  22. Kanade: Thanks for the recommendations. Gomen neh...I'm not interested in Asuka and Zero-sum. Not shoujoish enough. ^^ I'm already subscribing the Taiwan version of Hana to Yume (The One is serialized in it). Conducter must be very new cos I have not heard of it. Looking forward to read it online.

    Agree that Switch Girl is LONG. I've 12 volumes of the Tankubon @_@. But I love the humour and art. Hilarious!!

    Littlememe: Yeah. Shiro no eden is nice! ^^

  23. I checked up kare wa diablo and it's made by the same author as mayonaka no ariadone, and the art is lovely! same goes for the story. So I'd say betsufure this time around!

  24. OMG, seriously what's wrong with me I haven't visited your blog for a while. It's all Strobe Edge's fault. You dropped Betsuma, i see lol Well can't blame you, STROBE EDGE is gone forever T__T yes i'm still mourning over it XD Thanks for everything well for providing us buahahaha. I wonder if people stopped buying Betsuma because of Strobe Edge, uhmmm.
