To be honest, with Suwon,
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Also.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I also got the missing volume of Daiya (Act II 27) that I somehow overlooked the other day.

I should be reading the new chapters but I'm scared to.

I still have a couple of volumes of Mashiro no Oto lying around here that I need to read as well.

I was planning on reading 32 this week but then I realized that 33 will be out in the US soon, so I think I'll just read them together.  Then we can talk about both of them. :D

I have read 32 and half of 33 so far. Skimmed the others but will read them properly. I've got 37 on preorder too. Amazon thinks it's going to deliver to me on the 23-25th December. I suspect that won't be the case :P Maybe the 23rd. Probably NOT the 25th xD.

Yona

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


I picked up Yona 33 today along with Takane and Hana 18 (the last volume in that series) and Haikyuu 1 and 2.  :) I'm only buying the first 2 volumes of Haikyuu for now until I watch the anime or read 1 and 2 to see if I want to continue the series.

I sneak peeked at the latest chapter of Daiya today. This game is going to go on a while. It's still only the 4th inning.

@Ponyfan I've read up to a point in Yona 33. The rest is on my to do list. When you read them you'll realise what that point is and why I stopped there.

I really dislike the first episode of Haikyuu. I actually gave up on watching it a couple of times because of that, but there are a lot of Haikyuu fans in the Daiya fanbase and they said it gets better as it goes on. I liked it from ep 2. So yeah, I don't know if manga vol 1 is much better than ep 1, but even if you're not sure, don't let the start put you off. It's a lot less heart destroying than Daiya but it's a good sports series with some decent characters imo.

That said I still need to finish the anime as far as it currently is.

Chihayafuru is another one you might want to check out, albeit it might eat your soul. Again, I've watched and not read, but there's a scene in Daiya where Eijun is reading Chihayafuru xD. And a drama where Jun has it in his bag as well :)

Daiya:

Wow. I thought the game would be over by now.  That explains why one of the fanfic writers that I follow hasn't posted in a while. Their last update basically said "see you after the final."


Yona:

I won't ask you for details but now I'm a little nervous to read 33.

Even if I don't like the Haikyuu manga I'll probably still give the anime a try.  I see the characters from that come up a lot in Daiya fanfictions. 

I bought A Silent Voice 6 and 7, A Man and His Cat 4 and Komi Can't Communicate 16 today.  I'm hoping to have some time soon to sit down and read manga. 

I looked for Chihayafuru at the bookstore today but didn't see it.

I'll put you at your ease a little on Yona 33, I stopped because it's the start of a flashback and I want to read it all together. :) Although I got distracted by Christmas, my audiobook and some other stuff so haven't yet.

I think one reason Haikyuu characters flit into Daiya is because of the name Sawamura. The Karasuno team Captain is Sawamura Daichi, and of course people like to write him as related to Eijun...or something like that?

That makes me feel better about 33. :)  I was worried that you might have stopped reading there because something terrible happened to the characters. 

I've seen a lot of fanfics where Eijun and Daichi are cousins.  Although there is one that I'm currently reading where the two of them meet but aren't related and everyone on Daichi's team keeps asking "Are you sure you two aren't cousins or something?"  :lol:

No, the flashback just runs into 34.

...The end of 36 I am more concerned about but that's another matter. I don't have 37 yet...it's out at the start of next week.


Honestly, given that Haikyuu is younger than Daiya, I feel like the Sawamura name is a nod of respect from one manga writer to another.

I like the Haikyuu characters and such, but after Daiya it's very gentle as a rule :)

I'm not really into crossovers, though I know they're very popular. I guess it makes sense with sports stuff. I've seen some artists I know draw crossovers, eg Miyuki in volleyball gear, which is kind of interesting. But otherwise, yeah. Still, at least these two are in the same ballpark in terms of genre. Unlike the Daiya Harry Potter crossovers which...I am still scratching my head over, honestly. I don't think Eijun needs to learn to be a wizard, but that's just me...

(Massively now off topic).

Chihayafuru is also very strong on character, plot twist, etc. It's a bit different in the sense it focuses on a card game made from ancient Japanese poems, called Karuta. But it's pretty well written. Also occasionally emotionally destructive, but that's by the by.

I finally read Yona 32. I have a lot to say about the events in it.  I'm hoping to get a chance to read 33 soon too.
