Sexism in manga
(43 posts, 1653 views) Posted: 2d 23h, 50m ago by Whatever in Manga General
I'm actually not even sure what you are arguing tbh. If they wrote it and created it then regardless of why they still created something with sexist themes. It doesn't matter who is to blame. Women can enjoy it but that doesn't mean the themes a ...
Sexism in manga
(43 posts, 1653 views) Posted: 3d 0h, 49m ago by Whatever in Manga General
I'm very much aware of that actually. However that doesn't make it not sexist. Women can be sexist to women and men to men. It doesn't require the opposite gender employing it to be sexist. I see that a lot. "But a woman wrote it so it ca ...
Sexism in manga

^No need for that. There are plenty of manga that dont have cheesy benevolent sexist lines like "but you're a girl you cant.." Your avatar for example. Yandere Kanojo. ...
Sexism in manga
(43 posts, 1653 views) Posted: 3d 3h, 4m ago by Whatever in Manga General
I see it in shoujo and yaoi pretty often and used in a casual or "romantic" manner. Things like:

"But you're a girl you know." (So?)

or

"At least act like a girl." (Basically dont be yourself. Be feminine even if you have to force ...
A sweet innocent romance.

If 4koma are okay:
Otonari-San Game
Sensei Lock-On!
Yandere Kanojo

I second 14-sai no Koi. :] ...
Good ending standards
(14 posts, 756 views) Posted: 22d 11h, 40m ago by Whatever in Manga General
For me the journey is more important than the ending so if 90% of the series is the main character being useless, dense, indecisive, etc and in the end they are decisive and strong its too little too late for me. 50+ chapters of fail is gonna stick with me more than 5 c ...
Shounen/Seinen Romance About the Relationship
(10 posts, 725 views) Posted: 29d 6h, 50m ago by Whatever in I'm Looking For...
Karin
Boku to Watashi no Henai Jijou
Yandere Kanojo
Fujiyama-san wa Shishunki
Horimiya
Otonari-San Game looks like it can turn out that way if the guy stops being dense or if the girl is more honest. It's hard to judge with just 7 chapters.

*Some of these the ...
Guilty pleasures?
(9 posts, 943 views) Posted: 30d 1h, 50m ago by Whatever in Shoujo/Josei
Watashi ni xx Shinasai!
Everything I hate about shoujo all rolled up in a single manga. Love triangles? Check. Heroine becomes totally helpless for the sake of drama + fanservice scenes with a guy she doesn't love? Check. Despicable character painted in ...
Uke stubbornly courts seme but Seme keeps on rejecting him

^So do I. smile

You probably already read Junjou Romantica right? The terrorist couple is like that. The art looks kind of wonky at times though. ...
Uke stubbornly courts seme but Seme keeps on rejecting him
(6 posts, 324 views) Posted: 32d 5h, 23m ago by Whatever in Yaoi/Yuri
If you dont mind comedy Yume Musubi Koi Musubi was pretty cute and the uke is very persistent. It's not really that angsty though except for a few short lived moments here and there.

Himitsu no Akuma-chan & Prunus Girl are fun but I'm graspin ...

Bravely Default: Classic old school rpg goodness

SMT IV: Its a SMT game. What else is there to say? bigrazz

Devil Survivor Overclocked: Same as above. Okay fine a spinoff. Close enough.

Rune Factory 4: Theres lots to do and its really cute. It's an arpg, life/family ...
Popular shojos you just don't like?

Ao Haru Ride: I just cant find it in me to like Kou even knowing his circumstances. I find him boring and depressing.

Hirunaka No Ryuusei: Having read the full story I just feel like it was poorly executed. There are a lot of ideas I like here but I just dont like the way it w ...

Ex: Asagao to Kase-san.

No tragedy or excessive drama please.

Thx in advance. smile

Oh & this is just a minor thing but I would prefer if both characters are shy or at least not pushy. I just find it cuter. ...
Anti-moe heroines (comedy, action, fantasy)
(5 posts, 1134 views) Posted: 900d 6h, 18m ago by Whatever in I'm Looking For...
The best example of this would be Panty and Stocking from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. If you watched the show you probably know what I mean. They are sort of like anti-heroines. I mean more like Panty than Stocking though. Whatever the intent behind ...
Female lead ends up with "secondary" guy

This isn't really my thing but Obaka-chan, Koigatariki and Uwasa no Midori-kun!! had unexpected endings. They didnt end up with who I thought they would. ...
Visual Novels / Eroge - the ultimate porn?
(3 posts, 1193 views) Posted: 904d 12h, 8m ago by Whatever in Adult (18+)
I really liked Katawa Shoujo. I would get more into them if they didnt go out of their way to give me a full view of the characters genitals. I also really do not like rape stuff. I heard it was removed in Aselia the Eternal which was what helped push me to get it. I had wa ...

New Poll - Asian Characters
(46 posts, 5718 views) Posted: 906d 1h, 7m ago by Whatever in News
Yes because its obvious that is the intention regardless of how they look. The world of manga and anime doesnt have to make sense. Just look at Sailor moon. She is blonde with blue eyes, gets with a black haired blue eyed guy, and has a child with pink hair and re ...
NTR Vs. Vanilla

Quote from switchgear
what is its name?

Inuzuma Its very graphic just so you know. I found it funny in a dark way but then again I laughed during some parts of the Saw series so.. shy ...
NTR Vs. Vanilla
(33 posts, 6529 views) Posted: 918d 6h, 45m ago by Whatever in Adult (18+)
I only like one NTR and thats because the husband who got cheated on gets revenge and basically wins in the end. He had to become a monster to do it and basically turned his wife into a dog. It ends with him taking her out for a walk and she howls in front of the gu ...
New Poll - Unwanted Pairing

If its a long series I drop it. I dropped Nana as soon as I realized she would get stuck with
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the long haired cheater. Nana O, Nobu, both, or even Hachi remaining single would have been better.
I really loved this series at one point but I hate ...
Am I the only one who hates Tsundere?
(63 posts, 6304 views) Posted: 920d 16h, 59m ago by Whatever in Manga General
I like some of them but I cant stand the constantly bitchy and bossy ones who get away with everything. The types like Kirino from Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai are just awful and she just gets away with everything. It's more tolerable in so ...
Quality vs. Speed (mangapirate case)
(301 posts, 39940 views) Posted: 925d 0h, 59m ago by Whatever in Manga General
I prefer speed if the quality is decent-good and I can still understand everything. Theres this manga I'm reading that has multiple translators. One group put out excellent quality work but the updates were very slow. Out of nowhere this other group pops out an ...
BL versions of shojo mangas
(7 posts, 1400 views) Posted: 926d 17h, 20m ago by Whatever in Shoujo/Josei
I'd read a BL version of Kimi Ni Todoke and Dengeki Daisy. I've seen Loveless compared to DD but its much darker, twisted, and has magic.

Love Neco sort of reminded me of a bl version of Absolute Boyfriend but without the crappy ending.

Aitsu no ...
