So I started reading a manga called Slow Motion wo Mou Ichido.

It's basically, japanese 80's nostalgia - the manga.

The story centers around a popular guy in high school who has a secret love for old 80's songs and idols, and a girl who he discovers shares the same hobby.

It's a pretty comfy and sweet romance so far, though I'm still on chapter 14, and it's tagged as drama so I'm expecting something major to happen soon.

The main thing I want to note is that, it sorta introduced me to a lot of old japanese songs.

I haven't started that manga just yet but I plan to. I did check out those videos though. My favorite was the first one; that whole thing was fire, from the bass line to the totally 80's hair (reminded me of Masakazu Katsura's heroines).

That cello rock video was crazy too.

Speaking of playing things, I finished Starless. >_> Got 8/10 of the endings on my own and used a flow chart to get the last two. The very last ending I got was the only good ending and even then, it's not really a super happy ending. It's messed up like Euphoria though, just a little warning. I kinda feel like they wanted to do more with it, but didn't for whatever reason. I was hoping for more Marisa stuff.

I mean, yeah, sure it's great to finally have some closure on what happened in Negima.

But I'm still salty about the fact that it wasn't there in the first place. Like, seriously, one of the most disappointing endings I've ever read.

Also, there's the fact that it doesn't really matter since it technically happened in an alternate timeline from the one in UQ holder. And I remember reading something that the author considers the UQ holder timeline, the canon timeline, so yeah... it's basically one giant fanservice/fanfiction thing.

I'm usually salty about how mangas and anime end cause they hardly ever end in a good way. I don't remember not liking the Negima ending though. But I don't recall it being good.

Wouldn't the ending being and alternate timeline since then things can work out better than what the ending was?

I can understand how that could be upsetting, but I love UQ Holder and Negima too much to let that upset me XD

To be fair, the mangaka did take the time to make short end panels for each character in the epilogue, so there were some loose ends tied up at elast.

But it really was just a rushjob of an ending. The manga had been building up for this climactic fight between Nagi and Negi for literally years, and then it suddenly cuts it off and shows everything all fine and normal, without so much as an acknowledgement of what happened.

Bah, it's useless to get into this now anyways. What matters now is that Negima fans finally got the ending they always wanted.

...

Speaking of endings though, Jitsu wa Watashi wa is ending in 2 chapters!

And really, it so refreshing and rare to see a manga end on its own terms. No axe, or rushed ending, no sudden asspull or plot twist (I love Emilia anyone?), just a very satisfying victory lap showcasing the wonderful moments the readers have had with the series, and highlighting all the ways the characters have grown over the years.

It really is a different experience when reading a good manga you know is going to end. You want to see the payoff for all the time and emotions you've invested in the characters and their world; yet at the same time, you just want the manga to last for just a few more chapters, because you have invested so much of yourself in the story that it's hard to let go.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to argue or anything. I'm actually mostly just happy that someone else has read Negima so I know at least someone can Negima out with me XD

One day I'll get around to reading more manga, hopefully.
