thanks, I'm obsessed with lists obviously so it just kind of made sense to share what I'm reading with everyone :) I keep an offline list also that has everything that I've read for the past year :P

@pikahyper:
You should publish it onto comicvine!

@Hawkeye446: nah it is too long, the lists on the Vine get pretty out of control once you pass 200 list items and they are much harder to edit, my list is a lot longer and if I split it up I would have an insane amount of lists lol

@pikahyper:
Fair point, didn't really think about that...

I used to have Vol. 2 of Love Hina...found it on the floor back in junior high and felt like I'd just found every perverted little kid's dream...but when I tried to read it, the whole backwards, right to left crap totally confused and I never did figure out what the story was about

@aztek the lost: I've read a lot of manga but never got around to this series until now and I've been trying to read a lot more cause they are fun.

Pretty basic story really and very formulaic when it comes to harem type manga, bad student keeps failing to get in to a university that he has wanted to go to since he made a promise to a girl when he was young. Boy takes over his grandmothers lodge for young girls and hijinks ensue.

I've gotten interested in MPD-Psycho, just wondering is it in the traditional manga format(right to left)? Coming from Dark Horse I hope not. Kinda weary that you say it's slow up till vol.3.
 In relation to Wednesday Comics I completely agree, Art was gorgeous but writing left you wanting.
Nice list overall gave me a couple things to check out.

@DoomDoomDoom: MPD-Psycho is traditional right to left, I can't think of any of their manga that is left to right except maybe some of the early Oh My Goddess trades. MPD-Psycho did start to improve at the end of volume 2 but volume 1 was just bizarre, the fist volumes not being very good is pretty common Dark Horse manga though I've noticed. I still don't get what is so extreme about the series though, I find it to be extremely tame.
 
If I never read Wednesday Comics again I don't think I will be upset, just holding that massive hardcover did a number on my wrists.

Hrmmm bizarre that's a descriptor I like, I'll have to give it a shot.
Best part of Wednesday comics IMO was Metamorpho and Adam Strange only for the art though. I bought the newsstand versions and though they weren't heavy I didn't care for the newspaper format.
Thanks for the info!

@DoomDoomDoom: MPD-Psycho is super short and a quick read, it takes two volumes to equal the page count of a regular manga so even if you just read the first two and don't like it you won't have wasted much time. 
 
Adam Strange had some fantastic art but it was obvious the writer had no clue who Adam Strange was, Kamandi was my fav though.

A very good list. I've read and enjoyed a lot of the items on your list. I may be inspired to make one myself. Keep it up and remember to have fun while reading!
