This may help.
I've also read a paper about thsi based on relationship between characters in certain manga. Unfortunately I forgot the title. All I know is that it's pretty old, not translated, about robots and I think the primary relationship is between parents ...

is this really bl?
(4 posts, 567 views) Posted: 374d 4h, 11m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Vassalord
By that definition many non BL works would drop into BL genre as well.

Yes Vassalrod is BL, but it depends what you label as BL or what are you searching for in BL (ie. why are you asking).

If it's for the confession, yes they confess, but not with the actual " ...
20+ Volumes; Underated/Unknown manga you'd recommend?
(15 posts, 1741 views) Posted: 397d 6h, 13m ago by Chibi-Chibi in I'm Looking For...
Ii Hito, Bakuon Rettou, Sidooh and Jiraishin.

And since I recommended 3 from Takahashi (Tsutomu) already, I might as well recommend his Skyhigh and all it's spin offs, I think they make a good amount of volumes. It's an episodic thing (something just a ...
The terms shoujo ai and shounen ai
(18 posts, 1413 views) Posted: 398d 22h, 14m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Well you're right in a way but just to clear few things.
1. Bara tag exist, but it's just a tag as it's a sub genre in the wider genre of BL; and btw generally it's used "gei comi" or "gachi muchi" (or at least when I asked ...

Which doesn't mean he can't became so good in using GIMP he wouldn't need any QC.

And it's not really true you can't make a clean with magazine raws. There's Nuvola Tools that does from this this (though you do need ...

All hail for gimp~~
But unfortunately I can't help you D: ... I work on BL, and any potential shounen title seems a bit far away for me atm (my project list is to long and I'm the only one translating xD).

Finding a group that's ok with GIMP might be a bit ...

Yup... I'm all for this as well. Just the other day a friend of mine said it would be great if MU had this option as well. ...
The reliance on "one-click" host for scanlation groups
(43 posts, 2809 views) Posted: 413d 10h, 1m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
Quote from lolnameless
Quote from FeyPhantom
Consider this - a relatively unknown story 2 years later, what's the likeliness of it still having seeds? But as long as a "one click" site hasn't deleted the file, or the original uploader, then the fi ...
a manga whit more than 200 chapters

Kuroko no Basket and Beelzebub are just a bit over 200 chapters atm.
Both have comedy in it as for the story... I was OK with both but Kuroko kinda sucks at the beginning, and Beelzebub sucks later on... but that's my opinion. ...

Well Matsumoto Katsuji was pretty important in the genre and for manga generally... and I had a list of well known mangaka's from the early times (many of them male) since I've research a bit of shojo manga history but unfortunately I don't kn ...
Male shoujo mangaka?
(7 posts, 888 views) Posted: 420d 11h, 0m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Shoujo/Josei
Wada Shinji was one such case, unfortunately did few years ago.

EDIT: Actually back in the old days in general many shounen/sainen artist started off as shojo artist (and even outnumbered female mangaka) but that was like a stepping stone for them (though it' ...

Whats does an English licensing company (for manga) actually do?
(10 posts, 747 views) Posted: 452d 20h, 45m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
Oh gosh.... licensing company does so much more than what google can tell you and so much more than what only scanlaitors do.

I recommend reading this article and also everything else tagged under publishing manga.

It should give you a good grasp of what a c ...
why are so many yaoi titles not in english?
(6 posts, 623 views) Posted: 459d 5h, 50m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Yaoi/Yuri
Actually is find it more confusing when there is an English name used. Out of the four Xanity listed I only knew for Embracing Love what's the story without looking, I couldn't even remember for others but I did immediately after I saw Japanese title.

How do i explain to mom that i read something with incest?
(11 posts, 1431 views) Posted: 470d 9h, 16m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
And just to add my 2 cents (I've seen to movie only though). If I understood the story correctly it portrays the alternative version of Japanese history, mainly what would happen if women would take charge. And frankly what I saw in the movie was quite reali ...
Trying something new....
(13 posts, 677 views) Posted: 475d 8h, 11m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Yaoi/Yuri
I always though that Sono Yubi Dake ga Shitte Iru was a good introduction. It's not all about bed action and has many typical BL troops. But it may be a bit hard to get it now (i wouldn't know, it's long since I've read it).

But aside from that I tot ...
Scanlation etiquette.
(5 posts, 731 views) Posted: 482d 5h, 15m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
I think this is mainly your personal problem and not the scanlaitors etiquette. It's something you'll need to decided but be fully aware what you risk.

I can't say i have experiences with anthers in same regards but I was in similar situations with other ...

Authors that have given permission for fans to translate their work
(9 posts, 1143 views) Posted: 488d 23h, 3m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
Nakama got permission from OKADAYA Tetuzoh for some of her works (quite some time ago so I don't know how valid that is now).
And i think something similar happened between Liquid Passion and Miyamoto Kano but i can't confirm that as i' ...
