|Manga cover image on search (and other suggestions)
(2 posts, 41 views) Posted: 0d 1h, 54m ago by Suxinn in Suggestions & Bugs
For #2, in case you don't know where to find it, advanced search is located in genres. Just click "Genres" on the sidebar, and you'll see an "Advanced Search by Genre" link.
I think cover art would be difficult to implement in the ...

Have you read Hitoribocchi no Chikyuu Shinryaku? It doesn't have the "adventure" aspect of either Double Arts or Samurai Deeper Kyo, but it does have a lot of action. Everything else seems to fit with what you want too (and the chemistry betw ...
|Extremely GORE manga
(3 posts, 87 views) Posted: 0d 16h, 44m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Franken Fran, Kiseijuu, and Yuureitou.
And I also agree that I don't know precisely how "extreme" you want, so my recs are just those with a decent amount of gore, some regardless of how good/bad the overall story is.
|New Poll - Religion
(40 posts, 1084 views) Posted: 3d 23h, 29m ago by Suxinn in News
I'm atheist, for the simple reason that I honestly don't believe in a higher mystical/spiritual power. As frustrated as I am with calculations (I'm definitely a humanities/social science person), I honestly do think Science is Cool™, and the creation o ...
|Mythological or historical horror (or mystery)
(4 posts, 212 views) Posted: 8d 18h, 26m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
6000 (very much a pure horror)
Byakuya Zaushi (shoujo)
Genjuu no Seiza
Hakoniwa (shoujo, more mystery than horror)
Outer Zone (shounen)
Wonderland (honestly, a stretch--a gory horror with some Alice in Wonderland elements)
Not horro ...
|Bad summary, good plot?
(5 posts, 350 views) Posted: 12d 16h, 42m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Personally, I think this can apply to most manga, depending on how you summarize it. (Ex: Naruto? A ninja wants to be the very best there ever was. Bleach? An orange-haired dude becomes a god of death. One Piece? Pirates looking for treasure. Attack on Titan ...
|New Poll - Manga Medium
(17 posts, 530 views) Posted: 15d 16h, 33m ago by Suxinn in News
While I read a lot of manga online, I vastly prefer owning physical copies. (Which is the main reason why I'm always happy when a series I get is licensed.)
I think part of this is a throwback to the old days when my internet connection was terrible and constantl ...

These don't exactly fit the specifications of kaiju, but they all do have giant monsters:
Hitoribocchi no Chikyuu Shinryaku (kind of a stretch)
Q (Shihira Tatsuya)
And I guess Attack on Titan kind of fits? I mean, there are gian ...
|ridiculously heartwarming romance
(12 posts, 899 views) Posted: 23d 13h, 55m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Thirding Their Story and Golden Days (though GD is tragic, it's also excellent), and seconding Story of Someone We Know and Mainichi Seiten!
Can't believe no one has rec'd Asagao to Kase-san. yet. Probably one of the most tooth-achingly sw ...
|Mangas with Serious Topics
(9 posts, 513 views) Posted: 23d 14h, 30m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
For serious topics, you can't really go wrong with autobiographies!
Hanayome wa Motodanshi. An autobiographical manga by a trans woman about her transition and eventual marriage.

|Romance Manga where the male is NOT a dickhead
(4 posts, 583 views) Posted: 36d 19h, 19m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Unless you're particularly invested in the whole "will they, won't they"/getting together bits common in shoujo romance set in high schools, I would recommend searching for slice-of-life romances (any demographic) instead. Those tend to ...

It would be helpful if you had public lists! So apologies ahead of time if you've read these before:
Chang Ge Xing
Seirei no Moribito
Shin Angyo Onshi
Shoukoku no Altair
The Ravages of Time (though I am honestly really behind on this, so ...
|An unsung heroes or a dark knight premise
(5 posts, 555 views) Posted: 38d 19h, 16m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Sentou Jousai Masurawo
Shuumatsu no Laughter
There's actually quite a bit of this Misunderstood Protagonist bit in romance/slice-of-life series, but I'm assuming you want something with action. ...
|Something like Break Blade without the mecha?
(2 posts, 200 views) Posted: 48d 9h, 50m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Kind of obvious, but To Aru Majutsu no Index fits perfectly.
And maybe Kimi Shi ni Tamou Koto Nakare.

There was a topic exactly like this made just recently.
I have nothing more to add to what I (and others) have already posted there.
edit: Just realized you made that original topic. Maybe you could give us what you liked/disliked about those previous suggestions (if you read them) to better help us find what you' ...

|New Poll - American Comics as Manga
(19 posts, 1012 views) Posted: 50d 14h, 24m ago by Suxinn in News
Yup, I would.
There are two main reasons I don't tend to read American superhero comics:
(1) I dislike the paneling. There are so many words to each panel--it never seems to quite flow like manga/manhwa/manhua does, making it difficult for me to read. If ...
|Formerly evil protagonist
(5 posts, 720 views) Posted: 50d 15h, 1m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Gangsta.: Cursed, though this one is a spinoff of Gangsta., which you should probably read first to get full understanding of the plot.
Noragami, though good/evil isn't very black and white in this one.
Sengoku Youko, an enemy in the first half of this manga beco ...
|Villain/ess makes a move on Hero/ine
(9 posts, 1406 views) Posted: 51d 10h, 18m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Watashi no Ookami-san and its sequel Dear, though both are shounens and read like shoujo.
There's a side-pairing in Hekikai no AiON like this, but it's unrequited. And, again, the manga is shounen. ...
|Manga where the protagonist is strong and smart and the villain of the story
(6 posts, 866 views) Posted: 55d 11h, 48m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Ajin, maybe. Though Kei is more apathetic antihero than true villain.
ib - instant bullet, kind of. More at the end than the beginning.
Kami no Kodomo's protagonist has the dubious honor of being the most abhorrent I've ever read.
Wolfsmund, at least for the ...

I'm pretty sure it's original art. I know that it's drawn by the artist moorina, at least. (Though I think it's been reposted so often that she's taken the original work down.) ...
