I recently started reading Ancient Magus' Bride because I started the Anime not too long ago. I really like reading and watching a series to see what differences that are.

Jim Butcher Dogmen. It had some editing errors but I enjoyed seeing more of White Council member Listens-To-Winds. The illustrations were good but the storyline was uneven and problematic in places.

The last one I read was The Tommy Gun Dolls: Vol. 1 the Big Knockover by Daniel J Cooney. The artwork was amazing and I absolutely love stories with strong women. Tommy Gun Dolls reminded me in a way of The Kitchen with the strong females and the crime aspect but they are different stories. Other than those two titles, I also spent a lot of time lately reading all the catwoman comics I could lol.

I don't often read manga because once you get sucked into a story, then you have to keep buying successive volumes until the series is finally finished (assuming you're not willing to pirate it). However, I made an exception for Naoki Urasawa's Monster, which is a great mystery/thriller series about a surgeon who is trying to track down a former patient turned serial killer.

The last one I read was The Complete Persepolis. I really liked it! I liked the first half better than the second half though.

I have read and re-read a lot of manga over the years. The newest one that I have started reading is The Ancient Magus' Bride, since I am also watching the Anime. A lot of times I watch and read a series because there are little differences that makes a series enjoyable.

The mangas I am currently following now are My Hero Academia, Haikyuu and Attack on Titan. I follow the new chapters every week (monthly for AoT).
