|Shoujo/Josei that you unexpectedly like?
(5 posts, 176 views) Posted: 0d 2h, 50m ago by scarletrhodelia in Shoujo/Josei
Fruits Basket - I was sure it would be too cute for my tastes, so I avoided watching. But I kept hearing how good it was and decided to watch it for myself, and I loved it. This is actually the show that got me into manga, because I wanted to see "what happens n ...

I think it's Jinsei wa Barairo Da. ...
|New Poll - Sexism
(72 posts, 1153 views) Posted: 0d 10h, 44m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
My most disliked trope isn't here, and that is the shounen harem - the idea that an average guy can have tons of women competing for his attention. I find that more offensive and unrealistic than the other choices, as there are few legitimate plot reasons to ...

Since this question was first asked in 2011, and the first chapter of Horimiya wasn't scanlated until 2012, I'd take a wild guess that it wasn't Horimiya. ...

Oishii Kankei - a young woman who was raised to follow a traditional path decides to become a chef. One of my favorites.
Gokusen - this is fun, a yakuza princess becomes a teacher
Saiyuki Gaiden - all the Saiyuki series but the first are josei, and I think much as I lo ...

Living Game fits most of your criteria.
I also like Oishii Kankei very much.

Watashi no Ookami-san; their story is continued in dear
If you are ok with yaoi:
Choroize! Jigoku, oneshot in Teirui Makura

Honenuki ni Saretai has a doggedly devoted seme and an arrogant uke, though not childish.
PansyWansyLinsy, none of your links work. Are you using the BBCode?

|New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 860 views) Posted: 16d 10h, 47m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
I buy what I've already read and loved at the local comics store and online. I buy things to try at Half-Price books. It's discouraging to collect manga, however, when even a short series that you can read in a day can set you back $40-50. A 20-volume ...
|Our Miracle! Hopefully, the josei tag can return....

Quote from lambchopsil
You have permission to change the demographic to josei
How was this resolved? If Our Miracle was allowed to be changed to josei because Comic Zero-Sum and Zero-Sum War are josei magazines, then shouldn't all their titles be ...
|Any manga where the guy dies but the girl is pregnant with his child?

This is a spoiler of course.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Part 1: Phantom Blood
Also possibly Part 5: Vento Aureo, though I haven't read it so I don't know if the father died before or after the son was born. ...

My favorites are Chiyou yo Hana Yo, Haa Haa, and the short Sheherazade.

Hi Spudthulhu, welcome to the forums!
The original request for this topic was made over three years ago. The original poster is unlikely to still be checking for replies. It's considered 'necroposting' to revive an old topic, and is frowned upon her ...
|in need of lighthearted comedy / sweet romance
(9 posts, 743 views) Posted: 26d 8h, 8m ago by scarletrhodelia in I'm Looking For...
Life-changing is a pretty tall order!
Here's a couple I like without too much drama. Most long series either have drama come into it, or if they don't the series just remains silly without going anywhere.
Beauty is the Beast
Adarushan no Hanayome
|Shoujo/Josei that you can't bring yourself to finish
(19 posts, 1173 views) Posted: 27d 10h, 32m ago by scarletrhodelia in Shoujo/Josei
In a Bad Way
Perfect Girl Evolution
Kaze to Ki no Uta
It's not that I dislike them, and I do want to finish them, but The Wallflower just got so repetitive and the plot was going nowhere. I'm trying to like Kare Kano, I'm only in the 2nd volume ...
|Manga artist similar to Enjouji Maki
(3 posts, 317 views) Posted: 29d 10h, 24m ago by scarletrhodelia in I'm Looking For...
ENJOUJI Maki draws the best-looking men. In addition to OHMI Tomu, I'd recommend YOSHIHARA Yuki for really fun smut with handsome men. Also try SHIMAKI Ako and NAGAE Tomomi. ...

C-Blossom - Case 729

I think these would fit, though you may have read them.

|New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1268 views) Posted: 32d 13h, 7m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
This poll sets the bars far too high. Once you pass the 100 mark, you aren't a casual fan anymore. Probably well before that, maybe at two dozen. The labels for this poll (amateur, professional) are weird and meaningless in this context. The categories are ...
|Why the weak heroines?
(12 posts, 445 views) Posted: 32d 16h, 2m ago by scarletrhodelia in Shoujo/Josei
Quote from Manga2013
Don't know if there's already a post about this, but the more that I have read shoujo manga, the more I have come across extremely weak and crybaby female protagonists.
Wonder if others have thought of this too
|Relationship like Konoe & Kotoha from Ze

I Can't Even Breathe Without You for a helpless uke
The only ones I can think of in which the one partner was raised by the other, it turns out that the older man is the uke.
Uke mistreated in the past:
