(14 posts, 1113 views) Posted: 130d 20h, 2m ago by energizerbunny in News
As others have mentioned, I think it would really depend on how hooked the manga got me! If I'm reallyyy curious, I think I might very well just take a peek and jump ahead. Especially with more obscure manga in which case the timeliness of scanlations can' ...

Quote from Lost Rabbit
As the chips in cookies it's good, but eating it as raw white chocolate...
Agreed. White choco is good in moderation.
The taste isn't that of actual choco, since it's not even legit chocolate, technically... so it's rather m ...

Ohhhh, I thought the poll was asking "if a guy/girl tried to pretend to be the other gender, which would be harder." Lolll. Was totally thinking that a girl would have to bind her chest and stuff but a guy just needs to cover up more, probably. Haha. ...

If problems persist, try clearing out the cookies on your computer and then try logging back in again.

Just encountered a problem today and was wondering if anyone had any help or suggestions.
I can't seem to add any manga titles to any of my lists, nor can I update chapters on my list anymore.
Does anyone have any idea what's go ...

How exciting! I've been following everything I could get by Ikeyamada Go for years. The art! The cuteness! Bahaha.
Honestly, it's a bit hard to imagine Suki desu Suzuki-kun ending so soon, though. o.o

Innocence is absolutely fine, great, and awesome, if the mangaka can pull it off- making it natural without going overboard.

Define "light" breakfast, I suppose? Today I had a mocha bun (from an asian market... 'twas pretty yummy) and a cup of milk. I usually eat some sort of bread-bun thing + milk... or yogurt with fruit? I'm actually never forgetting to eat breakfa ...

Hello~ I was lurking about and realized that the super-dense characters in shoujo manga can really annoy at times. Hence the request/question! Does anyone know of manga (not necessarily shoujo), where the main (or one of the major side) character(s) is/are ...

Hopefully "typical shoujo" isn't too all-encompassing a description... Uwasa no Midori-kun!!, maybe? Scanlations aren't complete yet, but perhaps give it a shot! I was going to recommend Hana Kimi, but I see that you've already read ...

LOL. Fun topic. I wonder if any adults exist who are afraid of 'bed monsters'? ... It just seems to me like one of the things all people eventually outgrow in life. Probably for the better, too... can you imagine living in fear of a bed monster for most of your ...

If you encountered a bishoujo/bishounen in real life, what would you do?

b) ignore them (on purpose)
c) go up to them directly and introduce yourself
