Actor/actress who should play Skip Beat!
(6 posts, 4206 views) Posted: 1764d 15h, 31m ago by shojojunkie in Skip Beat
Skip beat is already out in live action! I am surprised to actually like the first episode, which was more or less faithful to the first part of the manga when kyoko and sho were living together, and of course, kyoko's breakdown when she realized Sho's tr ...
Is the end near?
(18 posts, 7121 views) Posted: 1987d 0h, 57m ago by shojojunkie in Skip Beat
I'm still hoping for a Sho x Kyoko reunion in any form, whether in their professional lives or as potential lovers/special friends.

I don't complain that Sho doesn't appear as often, because when he does, he really shakes Kyoko up.

Ren has had a ...

I think the current line up Ivy Chen, Lee Donghae (Super Junior) and Siwon (Super Junior) looks promising. ...

How was the ending?
(21 posts, 6760 views) Posted: 2216d 19h, 51m ago by shojojunkie in Ouran Koukou Host Club
It's a great ending! On the level of Ouran, of course.

What put a damper on things was...

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Hani confronting kyouya about his feelings toward haruhi, and kyouya's condescending yet happy response.

Thoughts on Sakura Gari Ending
(20 posts, 7079 views) Posted: 2230d 3h, 52m ago by shojojunkie in Sakura Gari
In my mind the ending was far off... like they're very old, wealthy men who are well regarded in society.

They are "secretly gay" hence they play golf often for 40 years so they'd have the excuse to go off in the woods together. Souma, in ...

Scanlations also help the fan base spread. I doubt they would sell anything if it were not for these scanlators (which are still around just hard to find). They are going to see a deep drop in their profit and hopefully it will make them realize the benefit of free sca ...
Worst yaoi cliche
(131 posts, 36564 views) Posted: 2284d 3h, 33m ago by shojojunkie in Yaoi/Yuri
1. seme being indifferent during sex.
2. stranger-zoom-to-lover with confessions of love right after meeting each other.
3. "I'm totally straight, I'm just gay for you, I don't think of sex with other men (except you)." ...
Rivals fall in LOVE [BL]

For #1, I recommend Mukizu ja Irarenee. Both rivals are involved (or have been involved) with one guy but end up having a covert relationship. ...

Violent, Gritty, Crime-Based Yaoi/Shounen-Ai

I really liked UGH. I think this is a good fit as far as violence and crime goes. I cannot vouch for the realism, though. I haven't been in a prison before. :-D ...
Manga that Scarred you for Life

I hate to admit it but all Vampire manga scare me. It's a strange fascination. As for a specific manga, maybe Vampire Knight, shojo but it really made me think "what if" yeek ...

Quote from mu2020
i got to correct something here.. the character of Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai aka TWGOK, keima, does not have a poor social skill. if he does, then he wouldn't be able to finished all his "job"... he have the greatest social skill... w ...
Best Josei

A Delicious Relationship has now become my ultimate favorite josei. It drags in the beginning then it heats up like a delicious beef consomme.
Guys that read shoujo
(163 posts, 26288 views) Posted: 2323d 0h, 28m ago by shojojunkie in Shoujo/Josei
My hubby pointed out a good shojo manga to me and i got hooked. He reads shojo because the girls always seem to be a lot more realistic looking (less overemphasized tits, I know). It also gives him an idea what 'romantic sex' really means, how it s ...

Quote from Whatever
They aren't all like that. It's just that ppl keep translating the ones by Hwang Mi Ri and Han Yu-rang.

Agreed! BHOH was my first and last Hwang Mi Ri series. But the thing with the HMR author is that they come up with the most inte ...
Genius With Poor Social Skills
(20 posts, 3364 views) Posted: 2324d 1h, 22m ago by shojojunkie in I'm Looking For...
TWOGK popped up when I read the title of this thread. The guy's a genius and a misfit with poor social skills in the real world. Although someone like me, who likes weird guys, would probably call him "normal".

Demon romance

I second Hanatsuki Hime. Best demon romance manga ever.

I am d.e.v.a.s.t.a.t.e.d. with the recent development!


Particularly because I can relate to the way haruto was in complete DENIAL about the possibility of Eba having a boyfriend. She was completely lovey-dovey with him and she did spend 24/7 with him in their hom ...
Do you believe in falling in love online?
(41 posts, 4240 views) Posted: 2356d 8h, 7m ago by shojojunkie in Chatter Box
Yes, I believe in falling in love online. The internet is just another venue to find someone special. Like what happens in the real world, being made a fool of or finding real compatibility can still happen.

It's like a long distance relationship in reverse (you meet the ...

A very rare heroine. I can't wait to see how she would react to certain situations. Can this type of uncliched heroine survive in a cliched shojo world? :-D ...

If you're bursting with opinions like me, blogging is a great option.

I set up blogs on different topics, but I have never used a blogging platform like livejournal etc. I would rather buy my own domain and set up my own server. Why bother? So that I can keep my ...
Art in Shoujo Manga
(26 posts, 5458 views) Posted: 2363d 3h, 14m ago by shojojunkie in Shoujo/Josei
Definition of good art for me means showing the emotion of "crying/lonely but trying to smile anyway" in the most perfect way possible.

With this criterion in mind, I have to say these mangaka take the cake....

Sakisaka Io (Strobe Edge)
Shiina Karuho (Kim ...
