|Seductive Male Lead / Male Protagonist
(2 posts, 152 views) Posted: 0d 14h, 56m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Light from Death Note immediately sprang to mind, but everybody knows that one, I guess.
Michio from MW.
Cain from Count Cain and GodChild.
One of the two leads from Sanctuary, though I forget which one. ...
|New Poll - European Comics
(16 posts, 281 views) Posted: 1d 13h, 13m ago by calstine in News
Just a little. I have the complete series of Tintin and Asterix and what few Jo, Zette and Jocko books there are, but that's about it. Even though the number of different American comic series I've read is higher, I don't particularly like any of them ...

|Mythological or historical horror (or mystery)
(4 posts, 211 views) Posted: 7d 15h, 21m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Remembered some more:
Takahashi Yousuke's works in general have the theme of historical horror or horror twists on fairytales and folktales. Though some of them are just weird and random.
Land, maybe. It's ongoing, so difficult to s ...

Number 1. I am Theravada Buddhist (which, I like to always specify since I doubt most people know/care, is very different from the Buddhism you see in manga/anime or popular media -- that's either Mahayana Buddhism or some weird pop culture buddhism ...
|Mythological or historical horror (or mystery)
(4 posts, 211 views) Posted: 8d 17h, 58m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Pet Shop of Horrors + its sequel and prequel -- Lots of mythological beasts, though the setting is modern (1990's).
Dokebi Bride -- This was axed, but imo it's still worth a read, as it was episodic for the most part.
Alice in Underground, Akazukin to Yasash ...
|Manga ID: incredibly vague description
(5 posts, 324 views) Posted: 13d 6h, 53m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Perhaps Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction?
If that's not it, you could try a search for "mushroom" in the series description (via manga search, selecting 'description' instead of 'title' from the drop-down ...

(17 posts, 523 views) Posted: 15d 10h, 4m ago by calstine in News
I prefer to read on the desktop (though in my case the 'desktop' is actually a laptop with a 15-inch screen sitting on a desk and never carried around), mostly for practical reasons. I can pretend to be working while I'm actually reading manga (o ...

I think you might be referring to Uwasaya. ...
|workplace romance >_<
(3 posts, 296 views) Posted: 24d 7h, 6m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
All of the below titles fulfil the "workplace romance" part of your request. The married/cohabiting one, however, varies, so I've added notes on that.
Arashi no Ato. They don't live together in the main story, but they do in the sequel onesho ...
|ridiculously heartwarming romance
(12 posts, 894 views) Posted: 24d 8h, 25m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Tamen De Gushi and Golden Days. Still, GD ends happily for the straight couple and in (somehow very beautiful) tragedy for the BL one, so be warned.
Sakamichi no Apollon -- I haven't got around to reading it yet, but the comments are very favour ...
|Mangas with Serious Topics
(9 posts, 511 views) Posted: 25d 21h, 24m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
I checked to see whether these were on your complete list, but may have missed some. Most are completely scanlated/published in English, but there are some incomplete titles mixed in here as well.
Abusive relationships --
Zankoku na Kami ga Shihaisuru, Kaze to ...
|New Poll - Classic Manga
(41 posts, 1467 views) Posted: 29d 9h, 39m ago by calstine in News
I think the last one I read was Ayako, and that was 1 1/2 years ago, so I went with the first option even though it isn't strictly accurate.
I have plenty more such titles on my lists and really must get around to reading them sometime. There are several Tezuka s ...
|Manga - Bad Guy Is After/Obsessed With Main Character
(3 posts, 385 views) Posted: 29d 10h, 56m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru
Makai Ouji - Devils and Realist kind of fits, but in this case it's a whole group of people who're after the MC (though individual obsessions exist too).
Stanley Hawk no Jikenbo - Kamen -- This is y ...
|Extremely shy/awkward lead male
(7 posts, 3431 views) Posted: 33d 8h, 50m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Well, the main character from Ookiku Furikabutte blushes all the time and is incredibly awkward (though I wouldn't call him "shy": it's more like he has low self esteem), but I dunno whether the mood of the series will fit your tastes. It's ...

New York New York
Border (KODAKA Kazuma)
Combination -- This is shounen-ai, though.
Gyakushigan -- Sadly, not scanlated.
Ai no Binzoko. ...
|New Poll - Character Bio
(11 posts, 565 views) Posted: 36d 13h, 19m ago by calstine in News
I went with "No opinion," because, while I don't usually care about character bios, some mangaka do a really good job relating them to the story in interesting ways, or just making them amusing to flip through at the end of a volume. Particularly in ...

|climbing the ranks of a criminal organization
(5 posts, 385 views) Posted: 50d 4h, 8m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Heat, maybe. But I wouldn't say he starts at the bottom. More like, he starts with a small group that doesn't have much influence, and then develops that group through cunning ploys until it can rival the big shots.
Ouroboros -- Though I've stopped f ...
|New Poll - American Comics as Manga
(19 posts, 1012 views) Posted: 50d 8h, 11m ago by calstine in News
I picked "Probably not," though I have read Snikt! once, several years back. I'm not keen to repeat the experience. Come to think of it, maybe I should have gone with "No way"... ...

|Interesting and Unique Powers
(9 posts, 701 views) Posted: 54d 13h, 44m ago by calstine in I'm Looking For...
Chimoguri Ringo to Kingyobachi Otoko and its sequel. Blood diving!
Grainerie, Reincarnation no Kaben -- The uniqueness lies mostly in the source of their powers, though the powers themselves are pretty interesting.
Muhyo to Rouji no Mahouritsu Soudan Jimusho -- ...

Afuresou na Pool
Koi ga Bokura wo Yurusu Hani
Dog Style, maybe? I haven't read it, though.
Boku wa Konomama Kaeranai
J no Subete + its associated series.
Zetsuai + Bronze
A lot of Takaguchi Satosumi's works.
