TAGRO New Comedy Manga Series Ikigami sama Release on November

ikigami sama manga

New comedy manga series author by TAGRO, Ikigami sama will release on November 11 and can you get from Ohta Publishing's online magazine Pocopoco. As we know, TAGRO is the author of Hentai Seiri Seminar manga and Abnormal Physiology Seminar manga (Hen Semi), the manga with genre comedy.
Ikigami sama manga will tell story about a girl who meets a god in the form of a seemingly homeless old guy. The manga follows the slightly odd everyday life of the mortal girl and the not-so-mortal guy.
As quoted from ANN, TAGRO created a one-shot manga story by the same Ikigami-sama title in Kodansha's story story collection, Don't trust over 30. While the manga series version of Ikigami-sama will have the same premise and setting as the one-shot manga version, its story will start over from the beginning.

Another comedy manga from TAGRO, and this manga will be animated just like Abnormal Physiology Seminar manga (Hen Semi)?

Hunter X Hunter Remake First Impressions

Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011) episode 1 has been released about 2 weeks ago, when I watch there is something different from the old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999). On the remake, seemed to give feel of a cheerful, this is different with old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999). On the old anime many sad scenes such as when aunt Mito crying and when Kitsume Guma killed by Kaito.
But my focus review is the Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011) do not showing Kaito on the episode 1. If you ever watch the old anime, Gon know his father is a Hunter is from Kaito, but in the remake anime there is no Kaito so it would make the story is not clear or even slightly deviate from the original story (manga). Because how Gon know if his father is a hunter? Maybe the scene Kaito tell about Gon father will be told in some episode.
How Gon meet with Leorio and Kurapika in the anime remake  it is very same with how their meeting scene in the manga but different from the old anime, so at this point the old anime is different with the manga.
The conclusion is the Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011), old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999) and the manga has difference in storytelling.
