(48 posts, 4886 views) Posted: 775d 22h, 52m ago by Jeli in News
My two trips to Japan for two weeks have been great experiences. I have answered yes to the poll, but maybe I'll change it to no, more of a visit. It's a long way from now as to whether I would make that big decision of living there. I really like Japanes ...

New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 9749 views) Posted: 895d 3h, 40m ago by Jeli in News
Although the suffixes wouldn't alter the story entirely if omitted, it shows the level of how familiar characters are between each other, and sometimes even a progression. Like going from a -san suffix to -kun, -chan, or even no suffix at all. That shows that the ...

Suggestion: oneshot turned into a series later
(0 posts, 398 views) Posted: 957d 2h, 36m ago by Jeli in Suggestions & Bugs
I think that if there is a oneshot that of course was a stand alone story, and then is later turned into a series there should be two separate entries for them. For example: Nisekoi and Half & Half (SEO Kouji). The series usually starts with the same premise as th ...

Komi Naoshi...
(7 posts, 1355 views) Posted: 1777d 4h, 4m ago by Jeli in Shounen/Seinen
I'm wondering what happened too. I liked all of his works after I had read Double Arts, being discontinued, was a nice manga with a pretty good ending if you take into account that Komi Naoshi was suddenly told his manga was being discontinued because of ...

Popular shojos you just don't like?
(518 posts, 73351 views) Posted: 2177d 21h, 24m ago by Jeli in Shoujo/Josei
Vampire Knight. I don't understand what the hype is about vampires. The plot isn't exactly original. Yuki is annoying. Kaname seems like a creeper for his little sister, and Zero is really emo. (but Zero actually has reasons to.)

I'm just reading it jus ...
Worst SHOUNEN Cliche
(592 posts, 122821 views) Posted: 2212d 22h, 9m ago by Jeli in Shounen/Seinen
The one thing that really doesn't make sense to me, is the fact that the character screams out their attack name, and then explain what the hell it does to the enemy. Like someone else said before, shouldn't they want to surprise the enemy? If it' ...
