    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    I thought about reading the manga but honestly the first episode of the anime didn't exactly fill me with confidence. The MC was a bit to childish (for a lack of better word) and naive for my tastes so I wondered if he "matures" in the manga.

    Dunno how far the first episode got, but manga's first arc had his childish and naive views shown as the proper way of dealing with war and politics (which is why I dropped it hard).

    Pocket Monsters - Festival of Champions: "Tells the story of Red in the Indigo league, a league in where the champions, gym leaders and the best trainers in all regions compete."

    It's a doujinshi, so it's not an officially published manga.

    It's awesome, but regrettably awfully short, at only 8 chapters and 3 sidestories right now.

    Is this a combination of a few pages or are page layouts really that messy?

    Looks pretty normal to me. The other double pages do have a bit more clear layout though.

    Shinobu's Pure Heart:
    A great sitcom about a girl that is 100% not a ninja. It's also complete at 30 chapters.

    Houzuki no Gekokujou: Another "reincarnated in another world" story, but this one doesn't suck. Main character is a librarian who is born in a world pre-printing press, so low literacy rates and what books do exist are in the hands of nobles. She sets out to change that just so she can read again.
