Actor/actress who should play Skip Beat!
(6 posts, 3782 views) Posted: 1386d 23h, 15m 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, 6545 views) Posted: 1609d 8h, 41m 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, 6026 views) Posted: 1839d 3h, 34m 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...

Hani confronting kyouya about his feelings toward haruhi, and kyouya's condescending yet happy response.

Thoughts on Sakura Gari Ending
(20 posts, 6079 views) Posted: 1852d 11h, 36m 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, 31752 views) Posted: 1906d 11h, 17m 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)." ...

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 ...

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, 24423 views) Posted: 1945d 8h, 11m 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, 3142 views) Posted: 1946d 9h, 6m 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".

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, 3943 views) Posted: 1978d 15h, 51m 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 ...

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, 4995 views) Posted: 1985d 10h, 58m 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 ...
