Make no difference, so I don't care
All works past, present, and future has been tainted
Anything new they work on is tainted

Manga with art like Donten ni Warau
(0 posts, 663 views) Posted: 1132d 7h, 4m ago by Keilis in I'm Looking For...
Looking for series with character art that features more egg-shaped faces, rounded chins as opposed to pointed, and narrow eyes (wider for the girls is OK). I prefer josei but I know there's very little manga for that demographic, so I'll take anything ...
Would you feel happier if the main heroine end up with the second guy?
(68 posts, 16159 views) Posted: 1317d 11h, 24m ago by Keilis in Shoujo/Josei
Yeah, just because it makes the story pretty interesting and less predictable.

And sorry to hijack the thread, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for manga that does have the second guy ending up with the girl. Looking for one right now, and I can' ...
Does "Moe" era ruin anime artwork/animation wise?
(14 posts, 1475 views) Posted: 1318d 21h, 54m ago by Keilis in Manga General
The problem with shows that feature moe characters, i.e. girls (and the occasional guy in the background) with large eyes, round faces, and short and skinny stature is that the artstyle is so strictly defined, leaving the animators to feature only very young characte ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 13555 views) Posted: 1830d 11h, 10m ago by Keilis in News
Hate them with a passion. Why release half-assed work? Where's your spell-check? If you're translating it into English, you should have a firm grasp of the language. We don't want to read nonsensical gibberish. Those who claim that they can ...

comedy manga with light romance in it
(11 posts, 3386 views) Posted: 2079d 8h, 49m ago by Keilis in I'm Looking For...
Oresama Teacher's a shoujo manga, but focuses much more on the comedy aspect, and the romance in it's very light; nothing really develops (as of the eleventh volume so far), and instead you're treated to the hilarious antics of the huge ca ...
Shoujo with clean art.
(3 posts, 749 views) Posted: 2244d 7h, 17m ago by Keilis in I'm Looking For...
Or even shounen with cute art. Just needs the following:

- simple, clean lines
- detailed backgrounds
- no chibi
- toning, please; I hate white pages
- fantasy setting highly preferred... or something non-school life

Examples:

Akagami no Shirayuki
+Anima
Magi ...

Have you ever played a Visual Novel and why not?
(51 posts, 7264 views) Posted: 2351d 17h, 33m ago by Keilis in Games
Do 999: 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors and the Ace Attorney series count? If so, then yes. I loved both to death, but I think I prefer reading an actual novel over playing visual novels in general (I just really enjoyed them because they were made outstandingly). The prob ...
Strong female character, but kinda nitpicky about it.
(15 posts, 5789 views) Posted: 2355d 10h, 14m ago by Keilis in I'm Looking For...
So, I've searched the forums and saw a lot of people trying to find strong female leads. I did look through the posts, but it wasn't really what I was looking for. I'd like a female lead that's emotionally strong (i.e. doesn't break down a ...

Don't believe we need them. Pretty much all of them are easily translated into English through manners alone, and it definitely would translate better if they used English terms as replacements (such as Lord/Lady, Mr./Mrs., etc.). For ones like -chan and -kun, ...

What's wrong with Shoujo Cliches?
(64 posts, 14504 views) Posted: 2556d 16h, 37m ago by Keilis in Shoujo/Josei
Predictability --> boredom. It's basically "been there, done that" and it's also reflective of how much effort and time the mangaka puts into creating the story/characters/setting/whatever. If the mangaka injects 0% of creativity into it, I ...
Do you judge a manga by its cover?
(188 posts, 22560 views) Posted: 2657d 9h, 36m ago by Keilis in Manga General
All the time. If you can't appeal a potential reader with a full-blown coloured cover, how does the mangaka expect to do so in the story? Unlike novels, manga is told by its visuals, so covers matter much more. ...
Females Truly Rule Anime & Manga
(61 posts, 8307 views) Posted: 2659d 12h, 49m ago by Keilis in Manga General
Yeah, I hate how majority of media (not just manga/anime in general) can't portray a strong female character -- strong being well-crafted, not physically strong. Otae from Gintama, for example, annoyed the living hell out of me whenever she came on-scr ...
Bakuman, the anime!
(31 posts, 5455 views) Posted: 2672d 15h, 49m ago by Keilis in Baku-man
The thing with J.C. Staff is that the base material they've chosen to produce is already solid, like Nodame Cantabile. The way they've adapted it, though, just feels subpar to the original material. I'd disagree about their animation being decent; look ...

Are you embaressed to let your friends know you read manga?
(226 posts, 27323 views) Posted: 2695d 5h, 34m ago by Keilis in Chatter Box
Depends on what kind of manga, but usually, yes, I'm embarrassed. I don't read it in front of them. One of my friends is an artist like me, and I know she can draw better than 80% of the mangakas whose works I read. The material available to me in libr ...
Mangatoshokan all but shut down

Quote from alicerose
Listen, I agree partly with Diokhan .They are worried about the loss of sales and such but what I think is it's the wrong way to go about it.

They should go digital.Like other people said it costs virtually nothing to produce and if they perhaps ...
Scanlation group looking for seinen/josei to scanlate...

Hey guys! Thanks so much for all the suggestions! Some of these manga look really intriguing, and definitely stuff that we'd look into to scanlate. If we can get some more suggestions before we make a decision, that'd be great! Thanks again. biggrin

Was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for Japanese seinen/josei manga that has yet to be scanlated, and is currently unlicensed, though we will accept more mature shounen/shoujo. We'd prefer something with a fantasy or horror genre -- just s ...
