is it just me or does anyone like the fact that the reason toriko trusts sorawo is to point out how she basically said sarawo's not a snitch

The US military naming a vehicle after Dungeons & Dragons would honestly not surprise me in the least.

Same.

At first I thought it was a floating severed head.

Welp, someone call the SCP Foundation. Although it would be impossible to contain the "otherworld". This thing about another dimension always makes me think of Silent Hill...

So I read the manga before the anime and I just saw the first episode, didn’t expect the monster to look like that idk. However it was still good, I think I like the manga better. Haven’t read the LN as yet. Anyways love MY GIRLS toriko and sorawo they’re adorable

the LN is better for both yuri quantity and creepyness

Holy f********* at pg14, it's currently 2AM and I was preparing to go to sleep with the lights off but I have to flip the page even with Sorawo's reaction in pg13. smh

The easiest way would be to buy the English novel volumes; the manga is also licensed, but the first volume won't be out before August if the Square Enix website is to be believed.

You can buy the novels digitally on Amazon, iTunes, Nook, Kobo and BookWalker (four volumes are out), or the paperback omnibus edition (volume 1 is out).

If you really want the manga, you can buy the digital Japanese volumes on BookWalker by pasting 裏世界ピクニック into the search bar, adding to cart and changing the language to English for easier checkout.

It appears the chapter 3, and only chapter 3, is tagged as "horror." Not sure whether that tag should be applied to the entire manga, but it's not uniquely applicable to chapter three.

Thanks! I think I’ll wait till the manga’s out then.

Started reading because the title reminded me of Roadside Picnic and... this is just an awkward knock-off.

There are certainly some fairly obvious similarities to Roadside Picnic (which I recommend reading, by the way) - and one story point (the bolt tossing) that's lifted so directly I'm going to assume it's a deliberate homage - but overall I think this manga is going in quite a different direction, given all the emphasis on Japanese ghost stories and urban myths, and the questions about the protagonists' differing perceptions of reality.

On which topic, here's an interesting tidbit: When our heroines are in between worlds, the writing on the signs goes all weird. That may look like Japanese to the uninitiated, but in fact all of those characters are just... wrong. A translation note to that effect wouldn't go amiss, actually.

Or maybe something like this:

Though that's not an exact equivalent, just a quick-n-dirty attempt at creating a similar effect (for English speakers) by mixing a bunch of pre-existing symbols from various alphabets. Doing it properly would be quite a task. And now that I think about it, you'd have to change all the real Japanese signs into English too, for consistency. Oh, well, it seemed like a good idea when I stayed up late last night to make it...

^ Good job on changing that sign! That does give an idea of how it'd look for English speakers.

Honestly, to me it kinda looks like Russian (as a person who doesn't know Russian). I can read Hiragana and Katakana and the elevator buttons were just some of the characters mixed with other characters so good job at replicating the author's vibe in English

Renko and Maribel exploring the STALKER's Zone while fighting SCPs is now my favorite manga

I just realised something. The sign at Kisaragi Station is perfectly legible, which means... what? If it looks like Japanese to us, is it really something... else?
