(4 posts, 509 views) Posted: 12d 7h, 5m ago by scarletrhodelia in Shoujo/Josei
My favorite, favorite manga are josei, closely followed by BL (technically shoujo/josei), then shoujo with of course a lot of overlap. Oishii Kankei, Nodame Cantabile, Kimi wa Pet, Yoshihara Yuki, 7 Seeds, Sakamichi no Apollon, Fruits Basket, Red River, God Child, ...

Although I read reviews all the time, I've only written a few. If I like a series, what I think about it has usually already been adequately conveyed in other reviews. If I don't like it, I don't want to steer anyone anyone away from a series, because it ...

|Yaoi about chef
(15 posts, 1165 views) Posted: 146d 5h, 22m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
The protagonist has a crush on a girl who is now a widow. Where does the yaoi come into this story? Not knowing makes it harder to figure this one out.
Tenshi no Tamagoryouri - this is the only title I can think that is at all similar. The protagonist had a male lover, b ...

This is an interesting poll. I agree with meredithbecca.

How about within the last month! I did a presentation on HAGIO Moto recently, so I read or re-read most of her works, at least the ones I could find in English. A, A', the anthology A Drunken Dream, Marginal, and finally finished A Cruel God Reigns.

Calstine beat me to it so I'll just second a few:
Tantei Aoneko - there is not another manga like it. You will either love it or go "wtf?"

Not only would I read a manga adaptation, I have one.

I've been on this site for a long time now, but there's something I've not quite figured out. There's a forum for "Most Discussed Series". I'm assuming that whatever manga gets the most recent chatter floats to the top ...
|Looking for BL story with a plot that isn't about the romance.
(5 posts, 620 views) Posted: 279d 20h, 40m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
Let me start you off with Fake. It's more plot-heavy than most BL, and even has a het side couple.
Some longer titles that are frequently recommended:
Koori no Mamono no Monogatari
Yami no Matsuei
Eroica yori Ai o Komete

I'd have picked Ranger for practicality, but I'm assuming that there will be other players and I won't have to entirely fend for myself.
So I picked Bard -- they can do a little of everything and are so much fun to play.

We played "F Marry Kill" at a yaoi panel I did. First I showed the name of the fandom, then 2 or 3 people volunteered to play before seeing the choices, then I revealed the choices, and they had to say what they'd do and why. I tried to pick equiva ...

My answer was "None of the above" as my choice wasn't there.
I spend way too much time planning, researching, and putting together panel presentations for local anime conventions. Most of my reading now is for the next panel.

|New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 3087 views) Posted: 446d 4h, 0m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
If it's shoujo, I read the manga first, then decide if I need / want to watch the anime.
If it's shounen, I might sample the manga, but usually just end up watching the anime.
In my opinion, shoujo often loses something in the translation to anime; shounen gain ...
