How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring
Perfectly fine about it
Don't care

Worst Love Interest
(48 posts, 8307 views) Posted: 1199d 1h, 32m ago by shinkeikaku in Shoujo/Josei
To me, love interests in poorly written manga don't even register as it's just a pile of crap overall. It's when a love interest is such a bad character/acts so poorly that it drags down an otherwise great manga and heroine that I tend to get upse ...

I don't see how you can hate josei and then list a bunch of mainstream shoujo titles as examples. Branch out.. there's a lot of good stuff to discover. These titles were written for adult women after all and there's plenty of us around.

I'd lik ...

Zankoku na Kami ga Shihai Suru. I don't think any manga does this better. So keep reading it, it only gets better. ...
yaoi without m/m rape theme
(2 posts, 3395 views) Posted: 1380d 13h, 16m ago by shinkeikaku in Yaoi/Yuri
Considering there's countless manga with consensual sex that are popular, I think it would be just fine. There's a few high profile stories containing non-con that have anime adaptations which makes it seem more ubiquitous I suppose.

The whole non- ...
Most favorite shoujo cliche?
(86 posts, 11436 views) Posted: 1388d 2h, 42m ago by shinkeikaku in Shoujo/Josei
I admittedly love a number of manga that use the 'ol "whisk a girl away to another world where she manages to shack up with a hot guy that is protecting her for whatever reason" plot. Fushigi Yuugi, Kanata Kara, Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotor ...

Have you ever played a Visual Novel and why not?
(51 posts, 6059 views) Posted: 1465d 22h, 22m ago by shinkeikaku in Games
I play otome and BL games. I've done some dating sims as well. Most recently I've been working my way through Akaya Akashiya Ayakashino.

I imagine the "why not" to this question falls under two things: lack of interest or language b ...

There was a big stink about this one a while back: http://www.japanesegayart.com/?p=1688

I'm hesitant to link it as most people misunderstood that he was just passing along information and is quite an informed, connected, and talented blogger in his own r ...

I used to not be very into it, but I'm excited about all the great josei I've stumbled across this past year or so.

Why is it on hiatus?
(4 posts, 1711 views) Posted: 1538d 5h, 7m ago by shinkeikaku in Hakkenden
That's my blog and there's been updated information on Hakkenden. From what I understand, this past issue contained the old chapters 1-3 and the next issue will contain 4-6. After that, the chapters will be newly serialized material. I'm just exc ...
Stolen manga summaries - seeing who edited entries last
(5 posts, 1062 views) Posted: 2374d 0h, 22m ago by shinkeikaku in Suggestions & Bugs
Actually, the funny thing is that I posted it a mere 30 minutes to MAL (it's still unapproved so it's technically hard to find) and always have the tag line (Source: shinkeikaku) in my entries. So they removed it knowingly.

Lots of other descriptions are cred ...
Stolen manga summaries - seeing who edited entries last
(5 posts, 1062 views) Posted: 2374d 1h, 19m ago by shinkeikaku in Suggestions & Bugs
I apologize that this isn't much of a suggestion, but perhaps more of a question. Can you see who has edited a manga entry last? I'm a user over at MyAnimeList and write original summaries for some manga. These summaries often find their way ...
