|New Poll - Anime/Manga Club
(16 posts, 709 views) Posted: 30d 3h, 54m 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, 617 views) Posted: 48d 4h, 26m 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, 540 views) Posted: 48d 5h, 36m 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, 1238 views) Posted: 182d 2h, 43m 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.
Quote from 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.
Just yeste ...

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

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, 654 views) Posted: 315d 18h, 1m 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, 2050 views) Posted: 329d 21h, 43m 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
(5 posts, 1689 views) Posted: 342d 14h, 40m ago by scarletrhodelia in Hunter x Hunter
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. ...

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, 3144 views) Posted: 482d 1h, 21m 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 ...

I'm looking for a title to recommend to adults who have never read or possibly even heard of manga. These people would for the most part already be book readers, just of books without pictures.
My preferences are that it should be:
