|How do you pronounce the title?
(47 posts, 7685 views) Posted: 1021d 18h, 52m 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 ...

|Manga vs. Manwha/Manhua
(56 posts, 6299 views) Posted: 2312d 13h, 12m 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, 3440 views) Posted: 2315d 3h, 28m 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 ...

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, 4262 views) Posted: 2316d 22h, 24m 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, 31478 views) Posted: 2330d 19h, 17m 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, 39429 views) Posted: 2340d 17h, 53m 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 ...

(276 posts, 36236 views) Posted: 2342d 17h, 40m 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' ...

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 ...

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 ...
(15 posts, 1852 views) Posted: 2345d 19h, 31m 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 ...

(11 posts, 1729 views) Posted: 2345d 19h, 49m 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' ...

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 ...

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. ...

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.

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 ...
