I heard the boys were looking for manga to read and review. I want to make some suggestions but I couldn't find a thread for it; I guess than means I have to start one.
And it has to be current and not that many volumes because they have problems with books with too many pages.
The volume things is a pain in the butt because of how few manga worth reading don't go a bunch of volumes.
The first thing comes to mind is Disappearance Diary by Hideo Azuma. The author was a successful artist; had a bit of an emotional break down and decided to become a homeless person. Great story with art that does not match the story.
I'd argue that some manga like Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service has very self contained stories, so it doesn't really matter whether it's been running for a while or not. You can read one volume and get everything you want out of it.
I'll also put a vote in for Planetes. I haven't read the manga yet, but I absolutely loved the anime and cannot wait for the omnibuses that Dark Horse is going to put out.
Finally, I also haven't read this but everybody loves One Punch Man, so read it and tell me whether I should check it out.
How could I have forgotten my favorite manga?!?! Peepo Choo is absolutely bonkers and hilarious. There's only 3 volumes so it's easy to get into, and it's from the writer of ghost riders (was that the name of it). If you like crazy things you should do yourself a favor and definitely check it out. Although it's a couple of years old, so it may not be timely enough.
For a timely book you can check out Gyo. It's a hella creepy book that was recently collected into one volume so it would be totally timely.
