And now for something completely different. A digital-only title from Kodansha Comics, Wave, Listen to Me!, from the creator of Blade of the Immortal. Enjoy, especially if you wish to see something not superhero related or fantasy-based. Just something human.

The first chapter is available to read for free, thus the amount of pages below. Feel free to check them out on the site here though.

We cut to the next day in our lead's apartment, waking up from her long night and thinking:
I have no recollection from that point on. This always happen.

Fascinating. The premise reminds me of the opening of The Simpsons episode, How I Spent My Strummer Vacation, in which Homer's drunken ranting about his family, in a taxi on the way home from Moe's, is recorded on a hidden camera and broadcast on the reality TV series Taxicab Confessions. Of course, that was played for laughs. Here, not so much.

Hey, a food thing from my country! "Cheese inside" is not a good description; it's more like the batter itself includes powdered cheese, making the whole thing… … cheesy?

Samura's a great mangaka, and I liked this story; but the translation seems unusually clunky, with unnatural dialogue that doesn't flow.

Thank you, this seems like a really neat idea. I'll have to check this one out.

How is the digital only manga market doing anyway? Is the production cost of manga a relevant cost for them anyway compared to the writing/drawing of it, so putting something out digital only is a saving on the side of the publisher (the only other saving would be transport costs, since marketing is a cost for either way to put a book out).

PS: Where do you like to buy your digital goods? Comixology to have it all in one place?

Having a comic be this dialogue driven is kinda bold...

The storytelling is actually pretty interesting. Switches from angle to angle to angle per panel so it feels like an hyperactive film editor changing cuts every five seconds. Gives the comic a maniac feeling. Which suits it considering the hero is impulsive and prone to mood swings. And Samura generally gives you enough of a sense of place so it isn't completely disorienting.

The Ghost gag is pretty great.

Honestly I want to keep reading this just because I like the Minare alot.

Yea, radio tends not to dominate manga... then again, there's voice actor manga too ^^

Samura's a total pro at visuals.
