Hopefully mangaka's next work will be about redhead's expy

Hell yeah, updates!

Thanks Jaimini's~box~! 

The update on batoto came fairly late. It was up in their website on 28th April. Sadly Mononofu isn't part of their main series. It's not even on their status page

Hell yeah, updates!

Thanks Jaimini's~box~! 

Complete with 43 chapters, 5 Volumes..

 

I still liked the way it ended but if it had 2-3 more volumes it would have been better with more added to shinobu growth and possibly the other house mates.

 

I never wanted it to be long manga so its fine with me.

Damn, just saw this ended in this weeks Jump. I figured with Bleach and, more than likely, Nisekoi ending soon that they would be hesitant to ax anything. Guess I was wrong.

Governments push similar things together all the time to make their job easier. Instead of creating a new kind of visa that would extend the same privileges as the Sports visa, the US government just decided to give them sports visas. Hell, Sweden taxes computers as TVs.

Sweden doesn't tax computers as TVs anymore. The Supreme Administrative court ruled that owning an computer, pad or mobile doesn't mean that you have to pay a tv licens in june 2014.

I like the ship ShinobuXMinato but i don't get why she has a (possibly)crush on him, we have barely seen any interaction between the two so it feels odd to me and it makes me think she knew him from before.

The only real difference between a sport and something like chess is its mental exertion and skill instead of physical exertion and skill. Because the English language does not have a more specific word for games like chess or shogi we have chosen to adopt the existing word sport.

 

The english language is ever changing. Literally doesn't even only mean literally anymore according to the site linked with the definition of sport. Calling them Mind games comes with bad connotations based on other meanings so Mind Sport is better but its to long and sounds awkward.

 

I guess you could say games like chess and shogi are literally sports.

Not yet but will be, some countries already considered certain eSports titles as Sport mmm...
For example, LoL already considered a Sport in america and the players can get P visa (which is professional athlete visa) mmm...

Shogi and Chess aren't e-sports; therefore, you may not conclude that they aren't sports because e-sports aren't sports.

Of course they aren't. My point about esports was in response to the quote from the mind sports article.

I can still conclude they aren't sports with the actual definition of "sport":

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/sport
 

An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment

The bromance of this series is too high, LOL

Not high enough, needs to go higher. Just wait till they are all in the Shoureikai.

Even eSports are not sports. (see here, it is defined as a video game: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/e-sport) It merely has sport in the name due to the similarities it shares with sports.

So... if chess, poker and even speed reading can be considered as Sport, Mind Sport, Shogi must be sport too mmm...

Rindou is totally the love interest.

Okay, now to go reread Hikaru no Go, and maybe learn some shoji and play some Go. (Learning curve for Go was so much easier though...)

Thanks for the batch of chapters.

Cover 03!!

I hope viz picks this up someday the visual quality of the scans is less than ideal.

 

Anyway this still feels like some sporty BL manga this whole chapter Shinobu and Rindou
