Female MC, no romance
(64 posts, 4762 views) Posted: 1d 6h, 5m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
@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, 574 views) Posted: 8d 2h, 53m 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
(3 posts, 225 views) Posted: 9d 5h, 20m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
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, 1455 views) Posted: 14d 23h, 45m 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, 1455 views) Posted: 15d 0h, 29m 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 ...
The Supreme Bromance/Sisterhood

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, 1455 views) Posted: 16d 7h, 14m 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.

Quote from residentgrigo
My takeaway is that one can draws a girl being penetrated by tentacles or scat or ... and it will be called porn but input social commentary (is this it?) and then you can open gallery and paint crazy shit on naked women. Should i apply for a m ...
Two males with rivalry or love/hate relationship

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, 800 views) Posted: 37d 7h, 5m 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 ...

@residentgrigo : And now you've got me interested in GG smile I'll be sure to give it a go, then. I'm not bothered by its lolicon origins as long as there's no explicit or glorified lolicon in the story proper. (The problem isn't loli/shota. O ...

Sure, I don't mind if you explain Gunslinger girl to me. I've always wondered what the deal was with the girls and the guys who seem to be making sure they complete their assignments(?), but large age-gap romances/crushes were never my thing, es ...
