Sexual assault/rape portrayed as a joke
This bothers me A LOT! Especially in Harem genre.

Its really sick when you see a certain character touches women's breast/s or butt by "accident".

I just don't get why some Mangaka includes th ...

New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 13197 views) Posted: 767d 5h, 0m ago by Lanz16 in News
This is quite hard for me to choose 1 for this poll.
I have lots of issues regarding to the scanslators like for example on the choices:

When you start a series and then find out: Last Release (1000d ago). Completely Scanlated: No

The good example for this is Itazura N ...

New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 4089 views) Posted: 1188d 23h, 20m ago by Lanz16 in News
Here are my choices: (Too bad I can only choose one on the poll sad )

- Can't relate to the series
(There are few series that I consider that "I can relate to this". Most of the Shounen manga has that problem, until now)

- Uninspiring / lame main charac ...

Arts Club (For sure, I'll be in this club)
Music club (I just love playing instruments like Xylophone in Lyre frame and learn to play Violin)

So far, I can't decide! ...
What makes a good shoujo?
(36 posts, 5642 views) Posted: 1531d 6h, 43m ago by Lanz16 in Shoujo/Josei
No weak female lead (OF COURSE!)
Good sense of story telling
No cliches (A MUST!)
Realistic approach to the character
Meaningful love story (no rushing needed!)
Good character art (No big puppy eyes!)
The story plot shouldn't be OBVIOUSLY predictable ...

what manga should be made into an anime?
(196 posts, 31236 views) Posted: 1878d 1h, 1m ago by Lanz16 in Manga General
Otomen and Kimi to Boku.
Live action on Otomen isn't enough to please me.
Kimi to Boku would be nice if it turned into anime and it will be more funnier than in Manga. ...
What turns you off... about a manga.

- Harem (I didn't find it entertaining or funny) no

- Very weak shoujo characters (Its really unrealistic and unworthy to read the kind of manga with this)

- Too much blah-blah-blahs

- very obvious cliches especially on Shounen mangas

- weak or uninteresting or con ...

what keeps you reading a new series
(6 posts, 629 views) Posted: 1890d 2h, 8m ago by Lanz16 in Manga General
For me, it depends on the flow of the story with sense of substance.

If the story is good, then I'll go continue to read.
If the story is crap and/or no sense of direction, then I'll drop the series im reading.

Bakuman is the only series that I seriously dropped b ...

I've read the latest chapter and I found it really bizarre at one point: Urahara popped out of nowhere!
Its just one of the cliches on shounen.

As weirdchick0917 said, I was wondering where are these characters right now?
By the way, I like Ichigo in black hair. ...

(39 posts, 1454 views) Posted: 1894d 3h, 55m ago by Lanz16 in News
This is really interesting to see the independent Mangaka's manga in the internet.
Still, they should publish their works on a publisher just to earn bucks and even gain even more fans. smile ...
