A strange little slice of life manga based on rpgs


Hi, I came here today to share a little manga I just finished reading called Quick Start!! a cute little 4 koma about high school girls playing rpgs. If you don't know what manga is, it's a "style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children" according to Oxford Languages. Pretty much it's japan's main version of comics. Now if you don't know what a 4 koma is (which I didn't until I read Quick Start!!) a type of manga style with four panels of equal size from top to bottom, example in attachments. Think the little comics you can find in newspapers and magazines like garfield but, from top to bottom. The manga itself is filled with references and in-jokes about popular rpgs in japan providing a interesting insight in what games are popular over there and what there like. However, this isn't the only appeal of the manga as there's plenty of jokes and scenarios that are "universal" to playing rpgs providing tons of enjoyment even for those that don't know a lot about the japanese rpg scene. Overall it's a pretty cute manga and it can be quite fascinating at times if your interested in japanese rpgs. However, there hasn't been a official english translation released so you'll have to read a unofficial fan translation if you want to read it in english. You can find all the translated chapters at if you search for it there. Thanks for reading!

I guess it's just fate  ;)

It looks a bit like K-ON! only with gamers instead of musicians. I liked K-ON!, so I will have to check it out.

Thank you for posting this!
