|Ajin Manga Creator Wants to Return to Draw Ero-Manga
(1 posts, 248 views) Posted: 4d 1h, 36m ago by calstine in Ajin
Well, as long as he doesn't let his apparent hankering to draw H interfere with the plot, characterisation or art style in Ajin, and as long as he finishes Ajin satisfactorily, I don't care much what he does after that/on the side.
Thanks for the info! ...

"Casually hanging out together" immediately reminded me of Husky and Medley and Tamen De Gushi for GL and Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike! and 19 Days for BL.
Unfortunately, I can't think of a single romance series with this kind of pairing ...

You know, it's odd that you've mentioned Ghost Hunt, but thought that the big brother-type character was Naru's brother. If you ask me, the one who fits that description is the monk.
As for recs:

Most of the good ones have been rec'ced already, but I can add a few:
Conductor - Shoujo written by a male novelist and adapted to manga; a very nice murder mystery.
I'd also recommend Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, by the same novelist, but in this cas ...

I can't help you with the title you're looking for, I'm afraid, but I can rec a few manga with the "convenience store" theme:

Wow... That's a pretty amazing list! I briefly considered bumping this for some new recs and then decided not to, but I guess it wasn't necessary after all~ Thank you.

Quote from Dyoll
That link leads to a hentai manga, you know. I'm pretty sure the series you meant to suggest is what I've rec'ced above: Kanyou Shoujo (KAWAHARA Yumiko), also known as Plant Doll.
|New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 952 views) Posted: 37d 18h, 48m ago by calstine in News
Lots of things factor into this one, for me, so I can't really vote on the poll.
1. Which is the original medium? I prefer the original.
2. The primary genre(s). If it's action/adventure, sports, supernatural/fantasy, horror, sci-fi, or mystery, I opt for the anime. If ...

Since you mentioned Hako no Naka, there'll be some BL novels among my recs. If you by any chance dislike BL or are not looking for it in this instance, feel free to ignore them.

|New Poll - Evil Laughter
(20 posts, 976 views) Posted: 44d 3h, 28m ago by calstine in News
A true villain instils fear with a mere smirk, obviously.
Though if I were to pick an actual sound, it'd have to be "Fufufufu," which is what I consider the trademark evil laugh in mangaland. Or "Kukukuku," which I just noticed is missing from ...

Baccano! (Novel) -- Though I wouldn't call it a "romantic comedy," it has both comedy and romance. Ditto for Durarara!! (Novel), by the same author. They both have good anime adaptations out, if light novels aren't to your taste.

The Get Backers anime -- not the manga, which is ecchi (though there's no romance for the MC's). The anime doesn't have any ecchi or romance; it has a good plot and probably the best friendship I've ever seen, between the 2 protago ...
|New Poll - Blood Boil

Nothing bothers me in manga. All of these things bother me very much indeed in real life. I don't know why, but I can never take manga seriously, no matter how much I love it. Which is weird because most of my all-time favourite fictional characters are from ...

God Child and The Count of Monte Cristo (the novel of the latter since I haven't got around to watching the anime yet) are two of my favourite bittersweet stories.

Since your examples had 1 each of romance, shounen-ai and shoujo-ai, I'm going to rec from all three of those genres. Hope that's okay.
BL and GL:

(4 posts, 445 views) Posted: 63d 21h, 10m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
I feel the same way. Why are most of the beautiful guys (and girls) only in romance stories? So unfair!
Of course, who's hot and who's not is pretty subjective, but here are my picks. Note that in some of them there are two male leads, so one might fit ...

An interesting request, but sadly I don't have much to contribute:
Munakata Kyouju Denkikou and associated series might have some of what you're looking for; I think mostly Egyptian and Greek/Roman.
Saint Seiya and associated series -- Greek (Sain ...

(28 posts, 1082 views) Posted: 65d 18h, 42m ago by calstine in News
Personality, I guess. Intellectual capacity and gender changes are also pretty annoying, unless good reasons are given. But personality alteration is the ultimate mood-killer for me: whether a given character is a favourite of mine or not depends primarily on their pe ...
