Too hard to sift through the garbage to find decent ones.

You've basically got the people who just take their favourite song and slap it on their favourite series and think that's cool.

And then you've got the ones that try and make it a quality crea ...

Teppu - It's a women's MMA manga (and fairly realistic for the sport). If you don't mind that, then the protagonist is basically exactly what you're looking for. She's basically a sociopath, just without crossing the line into criminal. ...

What is a Good Villain?
(2 posts, 204 views) Posted: 106d 6h, 48m ago by wolfinthesheep in Manga General
I find that there is no set archetype that makes a villain effective. More important is how the rest of the setting plays off the character, and how the presence of the villain effects the protagonists. But the most important thing, above all else, is that the villain has to be ...

Translations to English
(14 posts, 439 views) Posted: 142d 6h, 13m ago by wolfinthesheep in Manga General
Basically...

- Completely literal translations don't read very well.
- Words can have multiple meanings and interpretations.
- Phrasing needs to be twisted if you want to evoke secondary meanings (like puns or double entendre).

And, some unfortunate truths...

Romance between Two Main Chars, (Not the Leads)
(8 posts, 432 views) Posted: 214d 2h, 42m ago by wolfinthesheep in Manga General
I like series where non-lead characters aren't just superfluous props. Having some kind of romance among side characters is part of being an actual character.

It annoys me even more when everything always has to revolve around the lead. ...

Well, Earth Girls is prehistoric...but it's also yuri, and fairly smutty, and not very serious. ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?

No- The series you listed were all made, produced, and animated in america;
They were only translated and dubbed in korea- like what companies such as funimation do with japanese anime in america.

simply translating and overdubbing an extremely popular series is a lot different that creating an entirely new unknown one from scratch


Um...

Quote from stasindigo
Maybe because it's difficult for Korea to make animations. So far ROK produced just a small number of animated series(and most of them are not base on Manhwas). Assumed that Koreans have limited animation productivity, in othe ...

Can't remember the names of two mangas that I'd read.

First was a Shoujo that was a collection of oneshots. A recurring character is a ghost girl who's missing her lower body.

Second was a Seinen, main character was a spirit medium who ...

Quote from KaoriNite
I apologize if I was wrong, but I was under the impression that religion wasn't very important to most Japanese people. I know that there is Buddhism and Shinto, but I didn't know that it was of major importance to their lives.

Question about Gay for the japanese
(13 posts, 1030 views) Posted: 272d 7h, 22m ago by wolfinthesheep in Chatter Box
Why is it surprising? Asian culture is absolutely notorious about sculpting everyone to fit into the norm.

The issue isn't "religious" in the same way that Western culture swing the bible as a cudgel. In places like Korea, China, and Japan it's e ...
can u bear to read long shonen with no girls?
(144 posts, 14226 views) Posted: 290d 6h, 58m ago by wolfinthesheep in Shounen/Seinen
Yes and no. My issue generally isn't a problem with "no girls", it's the randomly enforced lack of opposite gender. Plus an all male lineup just forces a yaoi fanbase, which is irritating.

I have much the same problem with manga with absolu ...

I'm done with this. I didn't talk about last scenes or lack of closure per se. I've said all I have to say for it unless someone actually wants to debate it. I'm not going to repeat myself over and over.
