I recently read an interesting Loveless fanfic, which made me wonder…How is the manga doing now? Anyone still reading it? Is it good? I lost interest at one point, but if it's good I wouldn't mind taking it up again. Same with Nabari no Ou or D.Grayman. Are they good? Have they ended? If they did, did they end well?

I also realized I had accidentally bought a random volume of 07-Ghost at some point…The art is pretty! It makes no sense (I bought volume 5 or something like that)! I think it was an anime? So…anyone read it and recommend it?

ETA: Another one I gotta ask about...Uragiri wa boku no namae wo shitteiru? I got to about volume 5...

I recently bought vol.1 of Loveless, the collected edition being published by Viz. I'm waiting for Viz to issue more so I can read it in one go and catch up.

As for Nabari no Ou, I think it had the same problem as Hikaru no Go. When a pivotal character dies, the story loses its focus.

Hm, now I'm curious who the pivotal character that dies is...I hadn't read that far.

Nabari no Ou ended pretty soon after the anime ended. I liked the ending; worth a quick read.

Recent Loveless chapters have been too short...not sure what the mangaka is doing.

Good questions...I have a ton of manga interests that seem to hang in limbo after the anime had gotten them to peak in popularity.

I guess I'll pick up the rest of Nabari no Ou at some point since it's ended and didn't suck. Sounds like Loveless is meandering, so I'll avoid it for now.

Can't comment on Loveless and Nabari no Ou because I also lost interest in those at some point... ^^;

D.Gray-man is highly recommended though ♥ Both anime and manga. ♥ I still watch the anime from time to time. Especially my favorite arc (Miranda's). The manga, the art has changed quite a lot in the recent chapters. But I can bear with that because the story telling is still as good as ever ^_^

07-Ghost I like the manga. I lost interest in it at one point, because like D.Gray it also took foreverrrrr to update (still does, I believe). And neither of the two have ended yet, since I last checked anyway. But the story still keeps getting more and more interesting, so it's woth the wait. As for the anime... hmmm, it was okay, but could be better. ^^; I liked it enough to watch to the end, but can't say I will be inclined to watch it again.

Uragiri................. Watched it for Shusei XD The other characters didn't make me care for them, sorry to say.

I have a hard time sticking with shonen manga when they go on for too long...But maybe I'll try picking D.Gray-man up again at some point. Sounds like I should try checking out the 07-Ghost manga, not so much the anime.
