I'll definitely buy it... when it comes it France. The 1st volume and the databook (that was a surprise, it's a good thing my order for the japanese version was canceled due to lack of stock a few months ago). I'm really looking forward to reading them both, Yabuki's comments in the tankoubon are sometimes pretty amusing, he once reported a hilarious story about Jump's censorship (which he seemed to hate, so he must be really delighted by the leeway SQ gives him).

I think his question was "How is it so high?", and not "why is it so low?"; but I might be wrong.

So, whilst TLR: D has definitely got much more perverted content than TLR, it can hardly be called porn.

In addition, something that has already been mentioned and which TLR: D deserves praise for is that it's managed to have some interesting plot and stick to it, without making the manga get too serious, but developing the story enough to keep things interesting. In addition, whilst some things get revealed, several things are still on the shadows and new questions arise as well, in order to keep you hooked. And that's the story alone. The character development that has been had has been really good.

In terms of guilty please, for me, TLR: D is the same as TLR. However, in terms of enjoyment and interest, I think TLR: D is far superior. Whilst I cannot say it feels as if I'm reading a new manga, I can say TLR: D has addressed almost every single complaint I had while reading TLR, and worked on it.

I'd advise you to give it a chance. But, if the perversion is indeed too much that it puts you off, well, I guess you'll have to drop it.
I couldn't agree more. If you can look past the powered-up fanservice, you'll notice that Darkness has a lot more to offer than the original manga. Yami's character development has been excellent, and I find Mea's storyline quite interesting. The harem ending which the manga appears to be working toward to also appeals to me, but I guess it might actually be a turn-off for some people.

Anyway, I'm enjoying Darkness to the fullest, I like both the fanservice and plot (there is one!).

Hmm, my mistake^^;;. I mistook the question as a negative tone, like, this series is awesome why isn't it in the top 10?

In my opinion, the latter part of chapter 8 disagrees with you. I felt that way when I first saw it raw, and seeing it translated has not mitigated that feeling much. If you think what Momo was doing to Riko wasn't blatantly heading towards sex, I must ask what chapter you were reading. That was simply the final point, in my mind: the part that drove home the feeling I'd already been getting that the ecchi was getting out of hand in this new series.

I believe this is my problem, in a nutshell.

That's the thing. It heads toward that direction, but it never reaches it. That's why I said that whilst Yabuki is pushing the limits of just perverted-comedy, he's not doing porn. Hell, he's not even anywhere near Go Nagai's levels. Then, you have some other mangas like Kiss x Sis (even more so the OVAs), Qwaser (mainly the anime) and Nozoki Ana, which also try to push things to their limits and they're not porn.

I don't know, in the end, everyone has their limits when it comes down to how much perversion you can handle. So, as I've said before, if you can not cope with the current levels of perversion, then I guess you'll simply have to drop this manga.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I think the point of TLRD is to teach Rito things that would lead him into accepting a true harem end while being able to be good enough to control it. So you know, Momo doesn't get left out. It's naturally going to be a lot raunchier precisely because it's trying to reach an end as designed by Momo herself.

A new coloring of Nana has appeared at danbooru and gelbooru. It's the bonus drawing featured at the end of the volume 2. Pretty good coloring. Hopefully, one from Lala and Mea follow.

Spoiler for NSFW:

Translation for the newest chapter is out!

Definitely enjoyed the snippets of everyone's personalities, and it was nice to have a Run-centric chapter for once. Yami stole the show for me, though.

Horray for Ren and Run! (Love Yami's red rice line) Seriously I'd feel sorry for Ren if it didn't happen.

Also I just can't express enough, that despite my tolerance for cultural difference, the whole idols (dunno if it counts males too) can have no love life is just messed up from any angle (sorry but somebody needs to tell those fans to STFU and get a life)

Nice chapter, probably the first time I felt Run coming into her own as a character instead of just being part of a matching set she shares with Ren.

Although the whole gender dilemma was solved a bit too conveniently for my taste, at least that's now out of the way & something much more basic is finally addressed. The fact that, despite being one of the more straightforward girls in the series, Run's feeling were never really taken all that seriously by Rito until now.

And oh boy, Yami... Either she has some tremendous foresight to bring that particular book on that day or the entire time of the freshmen girls' spying was something akin to a social studies field trip for her.

Yami's expressions are great. The day she gets intimate with Rito is the day I die happy.

Probably because she's wary of Run's relationship with Rito so that she decided to know her enemy well before going in for the strike~

Honestly, I could care less about Ren. He was annoying in TLR1 and I'm sure he will continue being in TLR: Darkness. Run on the other hand was annoying in TLR1, but in this chapter she was actually quite cute and much, much more likeable.
She was the second girl to confess to Rito, wasn't she? I vaguely remember Lala confessing in TLR1, but I'm not really sure.

I'm still unsure what to think of Yami and Mikan as harem candidates. Somehow it feels wrong maybe because I have wished that those two would stay out of it since the beginning. Although the early chapter with Yami's full smile was awesome!

I'm pretty sure she was the first actually. It depends on if you take Lala's declaration that she might come to like Rito in the first 6 chaps or so as a confession.

That's what I've always sort of considered them as. Even more so now.
