|New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 547 views) Posted: 3d 7h, 23m ago by Suxinn in News
I didn't vote in the last poll because I found the issue to be more complex (and essay-worthy) than the simple yes/no answer options given.
But, I really like this current poll! I've actually just been cleaning out my internal hard drive this past week and mov ...
|Fluffy Yuri/Shoujo-ai Recs?
(0 posts, 46 views) Posted: 3d 7h, 35m ago by Suxinn in Yaoi/Yuri
Hey, all, so I want to make an effort to read more yuri/shoujo-ai, and I would love some recs.
I prefer fluffy romance series with minimal drama, but if the drama is done really well (read: the misunderstandings aren't mind-bogglingly ridiculous), I'm fine ...

I definitely second A Night of a Thousand Dreams. It's great.

|Manga similar to Akatsuki no Yona
(5 posts, 450 views) Posted: 36d 0h, 29m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
If you haven't watched or read Saiunkoku Monogatari, I would definitely recommend it. (The manga covers only the first arc, while the anime goes much further but doesn't adapt the entire light novel series either.) Also apparently The Twelve Kingdom ...

|Manga that you rated higher than 9
(13 posts, 1235 views) Posted: 150d 4h, 38m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
I tend to rate series only if they're at least enjoyable (7+) or if they're so terrible I want to remind myself never to touch them again (4-). I tend to rate things in decimals because I read so much there's no way I can keep track of which one' ...
|Manga about a convenience store
(2 posts, 370 views) Posted: 150d 5h, 24m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
My friend has been rattling her brain over this for the past few hours and after scouring the Convenience Store/s tag and the Wish/es tag and finding nothing, I figured it was time for me to make a post.
All she remembers for sure: A wish-granter (she has no idea ...
|World transport series that are actually good
(8 posts, 1732 views) Posted: 164d 9h, 11m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Oh, I remember the series that got me into this trope was Sono Mukou no Mukougawa, which is still my personal favorite of this subgenre.
Also, I read +a no Tachiichi lately and enjoyed it, but I've also heard that the ending was, uh, pretty frustrating.

|Ghost and human relationship

There's a Human-Nonhuman Relationship tag you could check out if you haven't already.
As for recs...

It seems that most of what you enjoy has some body horror and a change from good to morally ambiguous... Not sure if my recs would fit in, but here's some with similar atmospheres.

|Female MC, no romance
(72 posts, 9797 views) Posted: 483d 1h, 22m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
Are you particular about genres? There are a lot of slice-of-life female protagonists without love interests.
Aqua / Aria
Dainana Joshikai Houkou
Himitsu no Kaidan

|Could the adaptation be better?
(9 posts, 948 views) Posted: 593d 2h, 5m ago by Suxinn in Chatter Box
I wouldn't say these are better than the original, but they're on par with them, at least.
The Law of Ueki
Rozen Maiden (2013) (the one based on Rozen Maiden II)
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
Also I would argue tha ...
|Couple at the beginning of manga?
(2 posts, 3501 views) Posted: 597d 0h, 18m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
I think trying romance + slice-of-life will usually get you something along these lines. You could also try the Couple Growth tag.
14-sai no Koi
Aishiteru (Fujitani Youko)

Maybe you should make your lists public, so it would easier to recommend stuff you haven't read.
