I don't really care about the son comment. He is not Ichigo's father. Why would he bring up Ichigo's mother, if she was just a normal human?
I'm thinking that Ichigo's reitsu was unstable after breaking out of that prison, so his swo ...

Quote from jrdragon2003
I agree, she manipulates time without penalty, so she can reverse the state of death too. I think she did actually too, that Arrancar girl gaurding her was killed by Grimmjaw, but Orihime revived her.
As for the Quincy thing, how come we' ...

Ha...when I read the title, I was thinking multiple girls who all turn into the same person.
Other than Ashita Dorobou, I can't think of anything outside of a ninjutsu in some fighting manga. Nothing where the story actually revolves around that fact. Sounds intere ...

Wow! I'm actually surprised that so many people share my opinions on the matter...there is not good choice. If I could vote for anyone other than these two, I would. Why can't we just vote Clinton back in office and get something done?

I guess Tite could take some time for a flashback. Maybe we will find out why the German guy has a sword instead of a bow. From what I remember from Uruyu, Quincies do ...

Ok, so now I'm confused. That's why he wants to bring about the end of the world?! A girl! I guess it's a better reason than his puppy running away, but come on man...it's not like somebody lost your Rush mix tape or something. You' ...

As for everyone else who seem to think that this turn of events was extremely predictable, etc. It was not at all extremely predictable. If it weren't for all those speculation topics years ago, most of us, me included, might never h ...
|New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 3050 views) Posted: 770d 4h, 11m ago by orpheus17 in News
I've read a lot of manga out there, and I can only think of a handful of them that actually ended well. They were usually one or two volumes long. Anything longer than that seems to be axed by the publishers or given some completely ambiguous ending.

I really want to help you, but it's really tough to come up with an idea without knowing what type of girl she is. How does she dress? Preppy or a hipster etc? That would really determine what kind of bracelet or accessories I would pick out.

Feng Shen Ji seems to fit.
The only problem is that the scans have just started coming in. Chapter 12 was just translated, but with the sequel, it has 96 chapters. So, if you want something that is finished or close to it, then this is not the story for you. ...

Doesn't really seem like a fair fight to me...a handful of super heroes against every shounen jump action hero.
Anyway, since they are all shounen characters, just show them a naked woman and they will all pass out from nose bleeds. Then, do whatever y ...

Do you want us to make up a story or use our actual real life for a story?
If we are making them up, then I would go with a harem (the only logical choice). Just a random story about me going to work and women throwing themselves at me. ...

Not much of a chapter...the quincy army can control people and whatever Ichigo is trapped in seems to mentally torture its captives.
Anyways, on to the last page. I guess it could be Ichigo in his new Vizard/fullbring/soul reaper/quincy set up. That would explain th ...

after looking at your lists, the only manga that I can think of that hasn't been recommended already are:

|New Poll - Author Pet Peeve

Quote from punkie
My worst pet peeve is, in fact, that the authoor almost NEVER take the time to write a good ending for a series. Almost all the times, the ending feels rushed, not really thought of, as if the author was just bored and said "let's just finis ...

I looked through the manga that are published in that magazine and I believe it's this one: Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut - Hakanakikoku no Rion. Never read it though, so I'm not sure.
Actually, now that I've looked at the picture again, this ...
|What would you label yourself [besides otaku]?
(230 posts, 19539 views) Posted: 861d 15h, 53m ago by orpheus17 in Chatter Box
The obvious answer would be genius. Then, I can add in musician, chef, painter, craftsman and narcissist. Basically, the ideal.
And, I'm not an otaku. Quit trying to force your labels on everybody. ...

I already posted that I don't really do this all that often. Just for one or two manga. But, just a minute ago, I noticed that I check the webtoons every day. I can't remember if I'm allowed to use the name of another site, but I go on there to read th ...

Well, I will be honest. I am a straight male possibly otaku, so I do enjoy ecchi scenes. But, I have read several stories that just had ecchi to have it...I couldn't get more than a couple of chapters into the story. I'm talking about the "Oh, why does it ...

I only do it for fighting or sport themed manga where there isn't much dialogue. I don't need to know the special names for each move that some guy uses and if there is some kind of flashback to discuss why two people are fighting, there are always ...

I've read several stories (latest was a manhwa, but seems like I've read it in some manga as well), that have somebody who is an amazing cook, and they say something about their parents being "food researchers" to explain their skills. ...

(57 posts, 4651 views) Posted: 916d 18h, 55m ago by orpheus17 in News
My problem is that most of the manga I read are only in Japanese. I can't read Japanese, so it is pointless for me to buy them. I do read Blood Alone, and I buy it WHEN they get around to translating and publishing it. I'm almost glad that I don't re ...

Sorry, but I just thought of the most annoying superpower of all time (it shows up in most shounen manga).
The super ability to make friends with anyone. "I'm going to kill you and destroy your entire town. Ah, I lost. I guess we should just be friends no ...
