|(The) Twelve Hour Ruler (manga)||Read 8 Jmanga chapters. I didn't like it enough to continue reading after Jmanga7 closed.|
|Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei (manga)||Volumes 1-13 (except volume 3); Started about 21 June 2012. Gave up 4 March 2013.
It started out funny, but it became very stale and boring to read.
|Fairy Tail (manga)||Not really good|
|Crimson Hero (manga)||Decent||Volume 5; 23 February 2013- 21 October 2013
I mainly dropped it because Viz won't be completing it in English. I probably would have finished it if they had, but I really don't care about the series enough to read scans. I don't even care that much that I have to drop it.

Justin answers two questions about really long series: is longevity something the creators prefer? And why do they get licensed less? Plus, prospects for some re-releases, and why so much hentai got licensed back in the day. ― What happened? The questions dried up again! Once again this week, I was really desperate for questions. Is it because everybody is on spring break? Anyway, I need your help! ...
Your Lie in April paints adolescent love and musical performance in exuberant colors, and almost gets away with it, too. ― Your Lie in April is a beautiful show. That should be stated first, both because it's true, and because that's where the show itself begins. The first episode opens with a gorgeous, nearly wordless sequence of a girl chasing a cat through blooming spring flowers. Light piano sets...
Fans of the Log Horizon anime might find story questions answered more quickly in the first volume of this manga adaptation of the light novel. ― Log Horizon, like many a recent franchise, began its life as a series of light novels, in this case by Mamare Touno, before being adapted into both anime and manga. As might reasonably be expected, the difference in the adaptive mediums make each version a ...

This week: an interview with Danganronpa writer Kazutaka Kodaka! Plus Breath of Fire, valkyries, rumors, and the link between Metal Gear and penguins. ― When was the last time a major game creator departed a big company? Keiji Inafune leaving Capcom? Koji Igarashi leaving Konami? Ken Levine leaving Irrational Games? Whatever it was, we're probably due for another one. That's why people are in a flut...
Theron marathons the second half of a Bleach filler arc, but maybe it isn't all that bad. ― Volume 24 covers episodes 330-342, which constitutes the second half of the series' final filler arc: the Nozomi/Kageroza/Reigai story. It also marks Ichigo's last gasp as a Soul Reaper before being completely depowered; in fact, the arc actually resolves in episode 341, allowing for the entirety of 342 to be ...
Bamboo spends her last couple days in Tokyo experiencing the fish market, a Love Live raffle, serene gardens, an enormous clock designed by Hayao Miyazaki, and more. ― My actual fifth day in Tokyo was spent at Anime Japan (you can see Part 1 and 2 for 600+ pictures from the event), but to be less confusing, I'm calling this post days five and six.
