New Poll - Fonts (v2)
(70 posts, 8964 views) Posted: 700d 17h, 24m ago by SaneJenn in News
How is it possible that there is practically every single font in existence (yes, I'm exaggerating) but no Wild Words, the most commonly used font for scanlation...? And why are there so many fonts on the list? And where is the "I care, but don't kn ...
Am I the only one who hates Tsundere?
(63 posts, 5674 views) Posted: 817d 21h, 51m ago by SaneJenn in Manga General
I dislike heavily done Tsunderes. You can be a strong woman without having to act like a bitch, you know? But if it's just lightly done that's fine, although some people wouldn't really consider it tsundere at that point. Extreme tsundere behavior jus ...
What makes a good shounen storyline?
(23 posts, 5107 views) Posted: 817d 21h, 57m ago by SaneJenn in Shounen/Seinen
Originality. Doesn't have to be original in EVERY single way, it only needs to have originality in one factor. It can have a concept that's never done before, interesting characters that aren't all prototypes, new techniques or abilities, incredible plo ...
Kishimoto announces Naruto's ending
(62 posts, 16040 views) Posted: 817d 22h, 10m ago by SaneJenn in Naruto
I kind of hope Naruto doesn't die. That just seems like a colossal cop out, given the story of the manga. It's pretty much been an ongoing theme that him "living" how he has been is an inspiration to multiple characters, and with him "ta ...
Worst Shoujo Cliche!
(523 posts, 110900 views) Posted: 817d 22h, 34m ago by SaneJenn in Shoujo/Josei
When there's a misunderstood scene of the boy/girl and the other person walks in on it and flees IMMEDIATELY from the scene or passive aggressively hides behind a wall and becomes depressed. Especially if the character conveniently only hears a sn ...
Is this becoming a shoujo cliche?
(9 posts, 2388 views) Posted: 817d 22h, 41m ago by SaneJenn in Shoujo/Josei
I see this really often, actually. I don't think it's become a cliche necessarily, but the effectiveness does depend on how it's used. Sometimes it's done really poorly, as if the mangaka is screaming "MY MANGA, IT'S NOT STE ...
Just a small observation - shoujo manga descriptions
(3 posts, 552 views) Posted: 817d 22h, 44m ago by SaneJenn in Shoujo/Josei
Does the description matter much to you when deciding to read the manga, or do you mostly really determine it from the cover art? I used to go with both, but now (considering I read too many series already) I just try to give everything a go unless the art is REAL ...
Series you started long ago that you are surprised to see still going on and/or popular
(23 posts, 2368 views) Posted: 1306d 21h, 36m ago by SaneJenn in Manga General
Er... I think some people are misunderstanding my thread --just because you are surprised to see a manga series still continuing does not mean that you have to dislike it. For example, I liked Death Note, 07 Ghost, and Kimi ni Todoke, but it still doesn't stop me ...
Series you started long ago that you are surprised to see still going on and/or popular
(23 posts, 2368 views) Posted: 1309d 8h, 38m ago by SaneJenn in Manga General
Sorry, the topic was a little confusing. Basically, are there any series you're surprised are popular and still going on that you started to read the first few chapters of and then dropped? I haven't read manga steadily for a year or two now and I'm ...
Any shounen/seinen manga similar to these series, and some info on a couple series?
(11 posts, 2334 views) Posted: 1309d 9h, 46m ago by SaneJenn in Shounen/Seinen
Thanks for your suggestions, they all look pretty interesting. I'll try to push further through Beelzebub and Reborn then smile

I remember hearing about Tower of God before; for some reason I couldn't get used to the style in the beginning but I'll try ag ...
Shoujo manga with "normal" characters or an interesting plotline?
(4 posts, 2941 views) Posted: 1309d 9h, 53m ago by SaneJenn in I'm Looking For...
I've read Akaku Saku Koe and Kingyou Sou before and I've definitely liked them; I've also read Dengeki Daisy but it got a little dull. And yep, I've tried Strobe Edge but after pushing through the first few chapters Ninako was really getting o ...
Any shounen/seinen manga similar to these series, and some info on a couple series?
(11 posts, 2334 views) Posted: 1310d 6h, 6m ago by SaneJenn in Shounen/Seinen
This is a little broad, but I'm looking for more shounen/seinen to read. I'm honestly not very picky with shounen manga at all --most things get me going as long as it has a good hook.

I really like the Liar Game/Doubt/Judge/Eden no Ori/Enigme/20th C ...
Shoujo manga with "normal" characters or an interesting plotline?
(4 posts, 2941 views) Posted: 1310d 6h, 30m ago by SaneJenn in I'm Looking For...
Hello all, I'm looking for a couple different types of shoujo manga because I'm looking to get back into shoujo again. I haven't been able to find a good manga mostly because there are just so many out there so I thought I'd give a shot a ...
Tokyopop Closing
(29 posts, 1029 views) Posted: 1345d 3h, 29m ago by SaneJenn in News
I agree with this. Most likely people aren't buying so they're losing profit.

Illogical posters are illogical. ...
Are you a picky reader?
(71 posts, 6057 views) Posted: 2310d 5h, 39m ago by SaneJenn in Manga General
I'm picky, in terms of what I like. I generally give a lot of things a try, usually reading the first chapter and discarding it if I don't like it at all. Nowadays, I'm getting very picky about the artwork. I used to just read anything as long as the story was go ...
Just curious to know the percentage of people who dislike suzaku....
(93 posts, 8423 views) Posted: 2310d 5h, 54m ago by SaneJenn in Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
No, I do not like Suzaku. Maybe he is a "well-developed character," I don't know.
Most people dislike him because he is a self-righteous hypocrite. That's not exactly why I don't like him. I feel like all of his scenes seem very familiar an ...
Do you read fanfiction?
(204 posts, 26670 views) Posted: 2672d 22h, 50m ago by SaneJenn in Chatter Box
I read a few when I'm really into the manga, which doesn't happen often. Sometimes I do it, like asessilly, if I'm not satisfied with the ending, but fanfiction never appealed to me because it's not "the real thing," or whatever, and ...
