Read some Rating
Afterschool Charisma (manga) Very good
Volume 7; 22 December 2012-

Chapter 92;
+: Clean and appealing art, generally historically actuate, parodies/homages classics or historical events (like Jack the Ripper, the Titanic, Sherlock Holmes, etc.), unpredictable but well thought out plot twists, deliciously dark, great anti-heroes
-: Similar and too many feminine character designs, awkward tone changes at times

Drifters (manga)
Volume 2;
+: It's actually has a plot! lots of historical figures that make the history nerd in me happy, art fits the story type
-: Really needs translation notes, some of the art uses too much black and it's occasionally hard to see what's going on

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.
Fairy Tail (manga) Not really good
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.
(The) Twelve Hour Ruler (manga) Read 8 Jmanga chapters. I didn't like it enough to continue reading after Jmanga7 closed.
xxxHOLiC (manga)
