How do you pronounce the title?
(47 posts, 3180 views) Posted: 292d 7h, 28m ago by Lev_Lavi in Magi
Magi is one of the most difficult series to talk about in English. And unfortunately, one of the only series I get the opportunity to have a two sided conversation about in real life. The pronunciation is so difficult because Mah-gee sounds awkward in English even thoug ...
What's Your Native Language?

English is my native language. However, my Japanese is good! ♥ ...

I like this manga. ...
Manga vs. Manwha/Manhua
(56 posts, 4910 views) Posted: 1583d 1h, 49m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
I don't read manhua or manwha. In fact, I will specifically avoid them.
I've tried reading them before and I did not like it at all. I think the drawings generally look pointy and ugly. I can't understand Korean or Chinese anyway, much less even know ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 91 - When Do You Start?
(38 posts, 2872 views) Posted: 1585d 16h, 4m ago by Lev_Lavi in Chatter Box
It doesn't matter to me. As long as a series isn't on indefinite hiatus or left unfinished. I'll start whenever I find something I want to start reading that sounds interesting.

Usually something is around for a few chapters before I start it though. Bec ...
Chapter 78
(8 posts, 869 views) Posted: 1587d 6h, 40m ago by Lev_Lavi in Baku-man
They probably won't leave Jump. I mean, Bakuman itself is published in Jump so it'd be kind of ridiculous and put off a bad impression.

It'd probably either be Eiji cancels it, the editors let them quit after all and say they were just testing them to see ...
Why did you start reading this?
(44 posts, 3598 views) Posted: 1587d 11h, 0m ago by Lev_Lavi in Baku-man
I started reading it around chapter 40 or so because a bunch of people were saying it's good and the plot sounded interesting because I like to write and draw and create things all the time so I could kind of relate. It wouldn't be near as interesting to m ...
Dumbest mistake you've made in a game?
(223 posts, 18989 views) Posted: 1593d 21h, 25m ago by Lev_Lavi in Games
Oh gah, I was playing Kingdom Hearts and I was really bad frustrated because everything was so dark. Especially on the beach at night at the very beginning and Wonderland. I couldn't see where I was going and I got really enraged over the fact that anyo ...
speak Japanese?
(100 posts, 7588 views) Posted: 1595d 10h, 55m ago by Lev_Lavi in Chatter Box
I can understand it way better than I can speak it. I can read it too, but I don't know all the kanji.
^_^; I'm on my way. ...
last series you finished?
(1223 posts, 103406 views) Posted: 1600d 0h, 24m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

The first half was really good and I enjoyed it a lot.
But then right in the middle it turned to crap. Seriously, it became so confusingly complicated that I'm sure CLAMP was doing it on purpose to troll. And the tone of it complete ...
First Shoujo Manga
(423 posts, 36093 views) Posted: 1600d 15h, 26m ago by Lev_Lavi in Shoujo/Josei
Zettai Kareshi

I really liked it when I read it. But concerning almost every other shoujo manga I've come across since then it's a case of 'once you've read it once, you've read it a thousand times'. Because most shoujo is ...
Are u a fast manga reader??
(261 posts, 25398 views) Posted: 1601d 7h, 54m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
It depends. If I'm reading it in Japanese it takes a lot longer than if I'm reading it in English/reading it in English at the same time.

In Japanese I can usually read 1 chapter before I get tired out and have to do something else for a while. It took me 3 or 4 ...
Genres/Tags you don't like
(313 posts, 31007 views) Posted: 1611d 6h, 30m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
There are exceptions, but I usually avoid:

Tragedy - Reading is an escape. If a story ends in horrible sorrow I feel depressed.
Hentai - I think it's gross.
Lolicon - Just no. Do not want.
Shoujo - I dislike the art style most shoujo has. Not to mention the horrible p ...
last series you finished?

Aladdin to Mahou no Kyuusu

It was thoroughly average. A popcorn read. Good for something light to read in the morning, but it wasn't amazing. It could have been so much better. ...
Using Japanese words in english sentences.
(276 posts, 29587 views) Posted: 1613d 6h, 16m ago by Lev_Lavi in Chatter Box
It annoys me, especially when it's mispronounced. I know a pretty good amount of Japanese, so it annoys me even more because I can really tell when they're using the words wrong!
Especially in real life it makes people sound immature and it' ...
The "word on the tip of my tongue" situation
(24 posts, 1271 views) Posted: 1613d 6h, 41m ago by Lev_Lavi in Chatter Box
Thanks to seeing this I just remembered the name of a river I was trying to remember for a couple weeks and tried harder to figure out what it was.

And I did! biggrin

Anime Year 2009 (Warning: Lots of images to load)
(35 posts, 7946 views) Posted: 1613d 7h, 4m ago by Lev_Lavi in Chatter Box
I picked Sengoku Basara because I figured it needs more love.
I have a hard time deciding things when there's so many choices.

I did also seriously enjoy Eden of the East and Bakemonogatari, but now that new episodes aren't coming out I've ...
Last manga you dropped
(384 posts, 39216 views) Posted: 1615d 9h, 37m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
Love Celeb

It started off pretty cool, but then it quickly devolved into that whole infinite love triangles bull that I can't stand. The main girl was the same as every other generic shoujo main girl. The main guy was interesting at first, but then his personality did a ...
Manga craves
(15 posts, 1584 views) Posted: 1616d 8h, 8m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
I have done that before. In very specific ways too. Like that one day I had a huge craving for a manga where one of the characters can change into an animal.
I don't think I'd ever crave something that would spoil the story for me, but sometimes I ju ...
When is something subtext-y?
(11 posts, 1423 views) Posted: 1616d 8h, 25m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
I like finding subtext and pairing characters together in my mind and stuff. I think it adds to the series in a way and makes me enjoy it more. Like it's a whole other level to explore.
Doesn't mean I just go crazy doing that or anything though. If it doesn' ...
Important Parts in a Manga?
(22 posts, 1481 views) Posted: 1618d 7h, 57m ago by Lev_Lavi in Manga General
If I had to pick like that it'd be Middle and End.

Because there's nothing I hate more than being hooked at the beginning of something and then it turning to crap somewhere in the middle/at the end. It just makes me feel like I wasted a whole lot of time. A ...
Can non-main character BL be considered Shonen ai?
(4 posts, 486 views) Posted: 1627d 14h, 29m ago by Lev_Lavi in Yaoi/Yuri
Well, I wouldn't consider it shounen-ai unless it was a main part of the plot.
I would just say that it was a shoujo (or whatever type) manga with shounen-ai parts. ...

Do you hate Shounen?
(164 posts, 18888 views) Posted: 1646d 4h, 8m ago by Lev_Lavi in Shounen/Seinen
I love shounen. Well, most of it. There are some I think are horrible (Mainly Naruto and Bleach).
Not to say that shounen is my favorite genre though. Stories are so different even in the same genre that I couldn't really have a favorite genre.

But other than th ...
Do you hate Shoujo?
(236 posts, 26936 views) Posted: 1646d 4h, 25m ago by Lev_Lavi in Shoujo/Josei
I generally hate it, but I'll read anything if the story sounds good. There are some shoujo that I have enjoyed.

So, if it's shoujo and there's not an amazing plot to back it up I won't touch it. And if it starts all that love triangle/mean girl drama ...
