Can You Guess Which Word is Missing From Each Manga Title?

Literature

Let me preface this post by saying that I like reading manga, and it’s a format that includes a wide variety of genres, tones, art styles, and more. I also recognize that translation is a delicate art, and sometimes humor or connotations get understandably lost in translation. That being said: there are some truly weird manga, light novel, and anime titles out there.

The conventions for these titles seem to be very different from American comics. While it’s common to find American graphic novels with very short, broadly applicable titles (see: Saga), many manga or light novel series are a whole sentence to themselves, and some of them are quite surprising.

So I decided to make a little game out of them! I’ve taken a random selection of manga and light novel covers that have some unconventional titles and blacked a word. Can you guess what’s missing?
