Current Manga/Webtoon Reading List

 

 

The reason I’m making this list is to remember manga/webtoon I’ve read so far; in case I want a quick review later on. I’ve finished reading so many manga, there were great ones and not so memorial ones. If I have time, I do want to reread, but I just don’t remember their names right away. Hence, this is the reason of this post.

On top of my head, the only manga that I always remember to reread is Red River, aka Anatolia River. I read this together with my sister and cousins back in Vietnam. I remember we would wait every week for the manga to be released, then rode my cousin’s bike to borrow the manga. Renting manga was the trend back then (hah); we would only buy complete sets if we were really into them. The renting bookstore was actually functioned like a library but with a payment subscription. And with my cousin broken bike, she would take either my sister or me or herself alone to go to the closest renting bookstore. I was really young back then, and Red River had scenes that were not appropriate for, let’s say, pre-teens (hah). Because I read what my sister and cousins read and I was really was young then, I didn’t think much about it (too innocent hah). Ah memories are coming back~
I can go on and on about our memories of reading manga in the old days, but I will save it for another day. It’s not the purpose of this post anyway.

Before I go on, I need to mention my preferences, the genres that I usually read.
Definitely-read genres: shoujo, romance, fantasy, school life, drama, slice of life, mystery
Need-to-consider genres: adventure, action, comedy, historical, isekai, shounen, game, psychological
Though I must say, nowadays I’m really into isekai for some odd reasons (hah). The idea of reincarnation to another world really tickles my fancy. (I’m a dreamer after all.)
My must-read manga are those that involve solving crimes like detective Conan or Kindaichi. Yes, I was raised reading these manga even before shoujo kinds. (Same for dramas, if I can watch only 1 between detective and romcom, guess what I will pick?!)

This is my current reading list, obviously for ongoing manga/webtoon. (I might make another list for the completed ones.)

– Chang Ge Xing (writer has copyrighted problem; really want to read further~)
– The Sound of Your Heart (still on my list but I haven’t read for a long time)

After making this list, I think I should make a list of “ancient” manga. To me, ancient is one of those I’ve read and/or finished a long long time ago back in Vietnam. For example, Doraemon, Detective Connan and Red River would definitely be on this list. I do have some other manga in mind, but I can’t remember their Vietnamese titles. I need to do a thorough search before I even make a post about them.

So what is on your list? Are we reading the same manga? Let me know in the comment below~
