Long series that's worth it
(11 posts, 690 views) Posted: 3d 22h, 9m ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Jiraishin: 18 vols (more if you follow the sequel) - This is a dark, hard boiled, action, detective Seinen. There is a strong element of romance in 2-3 of the story arcs, including the one with the main character. However, this is a dark/tragic type of manga so the roma ...
Is this Cool?: Sword Balancing on Shoulder
(12 posts, 377 views) Posted: 54d 22h, 14m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
The whole picture of a person holding a blade on his shoulder shows a certain degree of over confidence, ready to fight and some what provoking. The person is giving off a message that he's confident in using the sword with an unorthodox battle pose and ...
Getting manga raws from ebooks
(22 posts, 561 views) Posted: 83d 21h, 34m ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
I assume ebook are actual ebook file you can download and not something you have to connect to the internet to read.

I don't know what kind of ebook manga are in but if it's epub like other books then you can unzip it as it is just another form of zip file ...
Antisocial behaviour
(14 posts, 664 views) Posted: 169d 7h, 10m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
Most of the time having family trying to talk to someone when they are emo will not work. There are 2 ways dealing with certain disorder: discipline or religion.

Strong discipline is usually the most practical way of doing it. This is because it will most likely going to wor ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 3918 views) Posted: 175d 10h, 9m ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
Sorry, it's a typo that got stuck in my head for a long time. Veritas and The Breaker are both wushu in a sense where as Ares or Shin Angyo Onshi are not but they are more focused on actions rather than martial arts. ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 3918 views) Posted: 176d 20h, 55m ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
No, I'm certain that a fair number of martial arts mangwa made by korean artists are loosely based on wushu world settings. They have a modern take on it, similar to urban fantasy vs fantasy but they are based very similar. In contrast, historical fantasy, fa ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 3918 views) Posted: 177d 20h, 46m ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
A lot of mangwa martial arts don't translate well. The stories are based loosely on wushu novels. They are a very different world compare to current manga and anime. It's like the tolkienian world of the east. Only a few of the elements get passed in ...

What if we couldn't lie?
(33 posts, 1568 views) Posted: 230d 8h, 31m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
There is a huge difference between lying and deceptions. You can tell the truth and nothing but the truth but you can certainly deceive people with the truth. The simplest way would be the tone of your voice and the pauses in your sentences when you say something ...
Will world peace ever be achieved?
(32 posts, 1293 views) Posted: 269d 17h, 50m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
War arise from conflict and human love war because it's born with them. You can't have a conflict-free world because the world would never change and never get better with that. It's like a perfect world. It seems nice but it's not the w ...

Yeah, the scheming plotter type always make the story interesting. Too many fake 'smart' characters, we need real smart, clever, stoic and prudent type. ...
Novel Recommendations
(53 posts, 3025 views) Posted: 327d 3h, 12m ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Give Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher a try. Wizards, magic, supernatural in a hard boiled detective style story. It's more action/detective/film noir with mind games rather than crime/thriller. It's about a wizard trying to make ends meets as a priv ...

What's that saying goes? "if you have enough money, even demons will be your slaves.".

Pale Skin vs. Tanned
(19 posts, 1782 views) Posted: 390d 5h, 19m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
I think it depends. Some people look nice with sun tanned skin; slightly brownish or bronze/caramel coloured skin in general. Some other people look nice with a pale skin. Not porcelain white pale or vampire-grade pale but more like peach colour pale.

I have sun tann ...
How do i explain to mom that i read something with incest?
(11 posts, 1377 views) Posted: 410d 15h, 22m ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
There are a lot of fiction novels involving a lot of killings. There are a lot of movies and TV shows with blood, deaths, violence, malice and all sort of things that would be outlawed in the real world. It's fiction, it can be anything. You just tell her that you're ...
romance but not high-school...
(19 posts, 1695 views) Posted: 435d 9h, 17m ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Give Oishii Kankei a try. It's about cooking but 40% of it is romance/drama. There is this mature kind of love growing between the characters. Not the sweet and happy type romance though. More like 'you are together or you are not'. ...
romance but not high-school...
(19 posts, 1695 views) Posted: 436d 3h, 24m ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Little House with the Orange Roof would be light heart romance without highschool setting. No harem and little to no drama but it's closer to a middle age bracket rather than young/student setting. Live happily ever after kind of story.

Hmm... can't think ...

Disabled Children - Abortion?
(63 posts, 4075 views) Posted: 474d 14h, 41m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
Quote from lynira
No, thinking someone's life will be horrible is not a good enough reason to kill that person. Even if you're most likely correct that they will suffer a lot, you can't guarantee that they won't find any happiness or joy in living, ...
Disabled Children - Abortion?
(63 posts, 4075 views) Posted: 474d 21h, 45m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
There is a real case for you people to chew. I don't really remember the specifics but it's about a father killing his 9-year-old daughter (maybe 10, i can't remember). The child was suffering from a disease that caused her some of her bones n ...
Mental Illness
(13 posts, 1175 views) Posted: 577d 10h, 43m ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
IMO, when you act or start thinking without solid reason in your mind then you probably have some sort of mental illness. For example, most people tend to be hoarders, which is a mental illness with a grading I think; almost all of us tend to keep stuff that we 'm ...
National Alcohol

In Vietnam they have what people called as "De" liquor; read as 'Dee' I think. It used to be a moonshine as it was illegal to make liquor at home. People brew it in their house away. When the liquor inspectors came check if they were making ...
New Poll - Platonic vs. Romantic
(17 posts, 3958 views) Posted: 582d 7h, 48m ago by Oddwaffle in News
Platonic relationships in stories and such are like snacks. It's fun to have and you should always snack to enjoy it. Romance is like the main course in the relationship. You can survive with snacks alone but you will probably drool for the main course. Having m ...
PC Gaming

MSI is pretty good on their gaming laptop line. I have a GX660R from MSI and I have been playing a fair bit of games on it. I think the new line is called GT70 or something. One thing to watch out for is the screen size. A 17 inches laptop tends to remove the 'm ...
