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, 552 views) Posted: 11d 1h, 24m 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 ...

Quote from caozhi
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 ...

@mikako17 : That's interesting. I've read maybe two or three webcomics, so I had no idea I might have had an easier time finding what I'm looking for there ^_^ I'll be sure to give those a shot. Thanks!

@residentgrigo : Ah, Neuro. A lot of ...

Quote from Baalzebup
Seirei no Moribito and Juuni Kokki (12 Kingdoms) are among the best anime I've ever seen. They are easily worth watching.

Thanks for the info!

@Sphear : I've read Helter Skelter; it was excellent. The Friendly Winter seems goo ...

@Sorcha : Most of those look really good. Thanks a lot!

@OrchardPetalLullaby : That's a really promising list. Thanks very much! Shame about Seirei and 12 Kingdoms, though; being novels, there's a good chance they'll never be completely tra ...

@residentgrigo : Thanks very much for your replies and the descriptions that go along with them. Makes it easier for me to decide whether to pick them up or not. That been said, I don't think Appleseed or Mardock really fit. I read mostly subtle romance title ...

Quote from Bafflement
GitS is a manga first and foremost. There's no real romance in the manga; it has one quite explicit scene of the Major having casual sex with friends, and one arc where she's briefly dating a boyfriend but he's not aroun ...

@linnil : I tried Arachnid a while back but soon got tired of it. Thanks for the reply!

@residentgrigo : Thanks a lot for the all the recs! Some of them look very promising; I especially like the look of Hito Hitori Futari, Sprite, Golondrina, Kakukaku, Kami-sama, Subaru, and ...

I've found this to be an extreme rarity, not just in manga, but in fiction as a whole. Granted, having no romance is pretty unusual regardless of the sex/gender of the protagonist, but if there's ever a story without romance you can bet the MC's g ...
Yaoi and religion/homophobic religious people
(4 posts, 490 views) Posted: 52d 22h, 54m ago by calstine in Yaoi/Yuri
MW, though it's really a lot more complicated than that, being seinen and written by Osamu Tezuka. Also, it's not yaoi in the sense that it's porn, because it's not, but it does feature a male/male sexual relationship involving a very religious ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 9944 views) Posted: 108d 22h, 46m ago by calstine in News
I despise loli/shota (and I don't get how people think underage porn is actually comparable with porn depicting adults, but w/e), but I voted 'don't care,' because this kind of thing just isn't feasible. If someone wants to find child porno ...
New Poll - Sexism

Quote from train93
While there surely are more serious options, like the sexual assault portrayed as a joke one, I voted for objectification.
Why? Because the other ones may be serious but I don't see them THAT often, while the objectification is basically ev ...
