|New Poll - Manga Filler
(10 posts, 157 views) Posted: 1d 4h, 7m 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, 390 views) Posted: 26d 23h, 31m 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, 1094 views) Posted: 89d 6h, 2m 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, 792 views) Posted: 107d 6h, 34m 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, 824 views) Posted: 107d 7h, 45m 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, 1304 views) Posted: 241d 4h, 52m 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

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 ...
|"Most Discussed Series" forum

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, 692 views) Posted: 374d 20h, 9m 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.
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 ...

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.
