Sexism in manga

The WIR blog wasn´t about what was done to random love interests and more importantly A-List characters (in all ages books!) it was about very specific cases and Gail has spoken out herself against being randomly angry that f ...

As I said earlier, the Women in Refrigerators phenomenon is a symptom of most primary Superhero protagonists being male leaving females as the side characters, most Superhero comics running for several decades under dozens of writers, and the constant ...

Lol, american comics are the same, there are many good ones with progressive female characters but an equal if not more number of awful representations.

Ever heard of "women in refrigerators"?

But they are active and they win at life instead of being dragged through their own story by other characters.

Quote from Illegal Goddess
I'll take assertive girls in shoujo even if they aren't experienced at all. Sadly, there is a shortage of them.
I mean, sure a girl doesn't have to behave like she's been with a thousand lovers if she a high school stu ...

I think I said it somewhere above, but these kinds of threads pop up constantly, and it's all about how some tired old cliches and writing tropes are dumb. On the Shonen board there's a "Worst Shonen Cliche" and "Worst Shojo Cliche ...

Quote from Whatever
I'm very much aware of that actually. However that doesn't make it not sexist. Women can be sexist to women and men to men. It doesn't require the opposite gender employing it to be sexist. I see that a lot. "But a w ...

IDK maybe not everyone will see them as sexist but I personally do get offended and put off when I see stuff like that. I am sensitive though I will not deny that.


The points that you're missing is that Shoujo and Yaoi are basically written ex ...

thank you!

The whole point of me posting this was that I felt like it was time to open the doors to discussion about this on a forum i frequent reguarly. From the sounds of it, there are a lot of people who have issues with gender representation in m ...

My biggest problem with sexism and objectification in manga is how it's marketed. To young boys, especially (ick). Like, I don't care if you have a fetish for women being objectified. I have a fetish for men being objectified, s ...

Seems silly to be talking about sexism in manga and anime when there is an industry built around selling to girls and women.

And as popular as the loser-male lead surrounded by sexualized females theme is in shounen, the exact opposite is true for shoujo (maybe e ...

Who exactly is the demographic i wonder ?

Well, they've aged up the art style. And considering it's a sequel series for something that was 10 years ago, I wouldn't be surprised if it was aimed at the people who grew u ...

My budget is anything between Rs.60,000- Rs.70,000 (1$=Rs.60). Laptop's minimum price here in India is around Rs.30,000. Maybe price is different in different countries even if we ignore the currency conversion factor.

As dumb as a lot of Naruto is, I'm willing to give the mangaka some benefit of the doubt. Mainly because Sasuke has been consistently been portrayed as a massive douche and a murderous sociopath. Him being written into a corner was purely intentional, ...
Crafting-based game?

Could always look through here bigrazz http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItemCrafting

Can't really recommend anything, personally. Most MMO's with a big crafting system also involve endless grind mechanics, which I hate. I know Lineage 2 has ...
Crafting-based game?
(7 posts, 566 views) Posted: 210d 9h, 18m ago by wolfinthesheep in Games
A lot of the Minecraft-esque games (including Minecraft) are heavy on the crafting. Terraria is a solid choice.

Summon Night: Swordcraft Story series for something much more casual and plot driven.

Don't think I've seen a single crafting system in a ...

Not true.

Most of poor people in the third world country are reluctant vegans. Since meats are expensive, and they prefer to sell the meats they somehow acquire to the market for the cash, while eating rice and vegetables in their daily life.

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 ...

What is a Good Villain?
(2 posts, 279 views) Posted: 354d 8h, 39m 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 ...
