|Anime Awards Panel surveys
(0 posts, 58 views) Posted: 15d 10h, 18m ago by scarletrhodelia in Adult (18+)
My friend and I are doing a panel at an anime convention soon, and we need your input!
We call it "Lucky Cat Anime Awards". Some of you may remember we asked for similar input for a panel we ran last spring. Lucky Cat Awards don't have ...
|New Poll - Goals

Pirates baseball manager Clint Hurdle texts daily inspirational quotes. I have a newspaper clipping on my refrigerator about one he sent by John Lennon:
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I w ...
|New Poll - Manga Filler
(13 posts, 1300 views) Posted: 168d 13h, 48m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
I don't think that manga chapters can be considered filler. To me, "filler" only occurs in anime when it gets ahead of the manga. Manga chapters may stray from the main plot, be uninteresting, feature side characters at the expense of the main ...
|New Poll - Doujinshi
(10 posts, 976 views) Posted: 194d 9h, 12m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
Depends on the series. Most series I don't look for doujinshi. I don't need it for shoujo, josei, or BL. But I am a trash yaoi shipper who cannot be shamed. If a pairing in a shounen manga or anime strikes me, I'll look for the doujinshi, sometimes ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga Club
(16 posts, 1654 views) Posted: 256d 15h, 42m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
When I was in school, it was so long ago that anime wasn't a thing yet. I didn't become an anime fan until about 9 years ago, as an adult. Ironically, I'm in an anime club now! There's one at the local library. All the members are young en ...
|Dear shoujo/josei reader, do you have favourite shounen/seinen that you like as much as your favourite shoujo/josei?
(4 posts, 1123 views) Posted: 274d 16h, 14m 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, ...

|New Poll - Reviews
(12 posts, 1214 views) Posted: 274d 17h, 25m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
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
(16 posts, 1418 views) Posted: 408d 14h, 32m 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.

I feel like I've read good or entertaining stories with all of these kinds of protagonists. None of these would be actual deal breakers for me, because I think that all of them could ...

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?"
Yuuutsu na Asa - beautiful historical with a twisty complex plot
Takaguchi Satosumi knows what she's doing ...
|New Poll - American Comics as Manga
(19 posts, 2415 views) Posted: 488d 6h, 43m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
Not only would I read a manga adaptation, I have one.
X-Men: Misfits is a re-imaging of Professor X's school as a setting for a shoujo romance. Kitty Pryde is the first female student at the recently all-boys' school. She meets Angel, the prince of the s ...

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, 815 views) Posted: 542d 5h, 49m 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
|New Poll - RPG Class
(24 posts, 2376 views) Posted: 556d 9h, 31m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
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.
FYI my username is from Baldu ...
|Shag, Marry & Kill

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 ...

SAKURAI Shushushu has several recent shoujo, though I don't know whether she has stopped writing yaoi. (I doubt it and I hope not.)
HIDAKA Shoko has a recent josei, but she's still writing yaoi. ...
