New chapter 2015!
(1 posts, 163 views) Posted: 12d 23h, 9m ago by calstine in Wild Adapter
Wow, that's good to hear. I hope there'll be more in future issues; with any luck it'll get a proper serialisation again now.

Thanks for the info! ...
shoujo/josei with an abused male?

Rainbow is pretty much exactly what you're looking for, even though it's seinen.
Banana Fish
Count Cain and its sequel, GodChild
Loveless

@mar3sep : I'll give Knight Run a read. Thanks for the suggestion! Kino is, imo, the most awesome female protagonist ever. And such lovely psychological musings and unique cultures, too. Wish the translations would come out faster and that the anime was ...

Oh, you read my comment on Ayako? >_< Yeah, as revenge/karmic punishment fantasies go, I much prefer Kisshou Tennyo; despite being female-oriented, I find it a lot less far-fetched than Ayako, especially when it comes to character interaction. Kirihito ...
Does the ending conclude the story?
(1 posts, 590 views) Posted: 27d 17h, 3m ago by calstine in Gamerz Heaven
Just in case anyone still wants to know the answer to this question:

No, the ending is completely inconclusive. It's like the managaka fully expected to be given a 5th volume, and was only told that wouldn't the case after she finished the 20th chapter. The ...
Gothic Horror Manga

I had no idea you could count Monster among those titles! But that's probably 'cos whenever I think "goth horror" I always think josei and shoujo, and not so much seinen.

Now on to the recs:

Yumekui Kenbun - Has an ambience very similar ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 1739 views) Posted: 34d 13h, 56m ago by calstine in News
@zarlan : I don't think ancient Greece or Japan ever accepted homosexuality in the sense that it's used today. I'm pretty sure that even then, permanent romantic/sexual relationships between two adults of the same sex were regarded with th ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 1739 views) Posted: 34d 14h, 40m ago by calstine in News
@zarlan : I knew about the fluid sexuality theory, but hadn't heard about the study on forceful sex before. I guess it makes sense, though, since from an evolutionary standpoint it's better if the female of any species that's internally fertilised can e ...

I have no idea whether the OP even reads this thread any more, but for the sake of those people (few and far between though they may be) who love close platonic relationships, I'm going to list as many as I can remember (which is a lot).

New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 1739 views) Posted: 35d 21h, 24m ago by calstine in News
I didn't vote in the previous poll because I think a good story should balance as many of those elements/moods as possible; those are the true masterpieces, imo. A single mood predominating always gets tiresome after a while, be it tragedy or comedy.

You really must read Petshop of Horrors -- it's excellent. Shin Pet Shop of Horrors fits too, between the protagonist of the main story and his new supporting lead, but it hasn't been completely scanlated or published in English.

diece -- Sort of. They used ...

@yamaken-dono : I love the twisted humour and social commentary in Fran, actually. I've had Bokurano on my list for ages, I really must read it. Kuro and Teppu both look promising, as does Carat. Scorebook, Domino and Watamote will go on my 'ma ...

New Poll - Living a Demographic
(25 posts, 878 views) Posted: 56d 21h, 15m ago by calstine in News
Adult female college student with zero interest in romance and a very drama-free lifestyle, so... Josei + slice-of-life + school-life. (Does that kind of combination exist, though? I've never seen a school-life/slice-of-life josei without drama and romance...) ...

@aliceeeee : Limit looks promising, though unfortunately licensed; I'm happy for the mangaka and all, but I simply do not have the funds to buy manga. And I thought Life had a pretty strong romance theme? The series description and the comments definitely ...

Suikoden III looks good; such a shame it isn't fully scanlated. There's no way anyone could get their hands on the Tokyopop releases now, and I'm not at all into gaming, so... none ...

Quote from cecropiamoth
Try "Birdy the Mighty II" .
I love it, and if you can enjoy fighting manga, with interesting characters, a believable sci-fi background, and lots of funny byplay between the fighting heroine and her sidekick, I bet you will too. No roman ...

Venus versus virus - I was baited

Thought it was GL, huh? embarrassed Despite the cover art, I knew immediately that that wouldn't be the case: it had a plot, and as far as I know most textual GL (and BL) don't have plots, and even if they do they d ...

@Suxinn : Thanks very much for the long list! I'm not particular about genres, exactly, in that apart from the genres I indicated in my first post I won't flat-out avoid anything else, but when it comes to things like comedy (especially slapstick humour and b ...

@hahhah42 : Thanks for the recs! I'd have loved to read Twin Spica, romance or no, but unfortunately it's licensed and I can't afford it. Oh, well. Maybe some day.
Waters was lovely (the mangaka wrote Mushishi, after all). Nausicaa has been on ...
