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 ...

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 ...

Here are my choices: (Too bad I can only choose one on the poll )
- 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 ...

So far, I can't decide! ...
|What makes a good shoujo?
(36 posts, 6124 views) Posted: 1982d 17h, 21m 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, 33888 views) Posted: 2329d 11h, 39m 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. ...

- Harem (I didn't find it entertaining or funny)
- 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

|what keeps you reading a new series
(6 posts, 672 views) Posted: 2341d 12h, 46m 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. ...

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. ...
