Gradual aging
(6 posts, 300 views) Posted: 8d 3h, 14m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for manga where the characters age gradually, but subtly.

There are a lot of manga where the characters don't age at all. Sometimes the manga could be publishing for years, and the characters are still the same age they were when the ...

Science/Logic in an illogical setting

I'm looking for manga with a setting that has unrealistic occurrences, but science and logic is still used as if they were normal.

Examples:

Detective Conan: It's a crime/murder mystery series with cases that are solved with real scientific knowledge a ...
Partner swapping

I'm currently in search of manga series that deals with, or at the very least briefly contains some form of partner swapping. In other words, two or more couples that break up, and later end up seeing each other's exes.

A prime example of this would ...
Tragedy & Comedy

I'm looking for manga that is mostly sad/depressing or horrifying, but has a few comedic moments.

Example: The Higurashi/Umineko series. They're supposed to be Horror/Murder Mystery, but they have their funny moments.

Are there any manga out there where an evil character is forced to fight for justice out of necessity?

Not for moral or ethical reasons, but just pure necessity? Perhaps there's someone more evil than him that he needs to get rid of? ...
Time travel involving family

I'm in the mood for some manga that involves people traveling to different time periods and interacting with their family in some way.

For example, a person travels back in time to get his/her parents together (on that note, I would like to keep this one to a min ...

Bad Ending for undeserving characters
(13 posts, 1513 views) Posted: 929d 3h, 29m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
I find that most manga are feel-good stories where good triumphs over evil, or a poor, disadvantaged protagonist overcomes his fears and hardships. If I may be so bold, I would approximate that over 99% of stories, not just manga, end this way.

Are there any man ...
Romance with reconciliation as the premise

I see romance manga with couples breaking up & getting back together all the time, but are there any where the character already starts out broken up, and the whole story is about him/her reconciling with his/her ex?

Maybe the protagonist was a cheater/ ...
Customer service

Simple request; manga that primarily takes place in some kind of customer service setting. Retail, convenience stores, restaurants, fast food, etc.

I would strongly prefer comedy and/or SoL.

I quite liked Working!! and Hataraku Maou-sama! ...
Time Travel romance

Looking for manga that deals with two characters from different time periods falling in love, or something very similar.

I guess InuYasha would qualify as an example, and we can rule that one out already, since everyone saw/read it, and I don't even really lik ...
Teacher is related to the student

The whole "accidentally calling your teacher 'mom' during class" (happens a lot in both reality and fiction, apparently) thing has got me thinking. What if the teacher actually was one of the students' mom?

Slightly different school romance
(2 posts, 593 views) Posted: 1405d 1h, 21m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
Just testing the waters here. A lot of school romance is about the students. Sometimes the teachers.

But what about the principal? Or anybody else indirectly involved with the school (non-teaching staff, parents of students, etc.)?

I would prefer something fully transla ...
Cross-school romance

I'm looking for something that deals with romance between characters that attend different schools. Main criteria being that they are in different schools (or they started in the same school, but one of them moved to another school).

Okay, so in light of the recently released "Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!" anime, I'm beginning to get interested in manga that may deal with similar premises.

Anything to do with a character trying to hide an embarrassing or shameful part of the ...

Suppose that there's a manga. It could be about anything. It had its big heyday, it brought upon a lot of laughter & tears, drama & suspense, anything to keep going, and it finally reached a conclusion. If it's a romance series, maybe the protag ...

Basically, I'm looking for manga where the author reuses material from his/her previous works. The story should be different, though.

Right now, the best example I can think of is Kimi no Iru Machi. The setting is the same as Suzuka, and

Equal opportunity harem

Is that even possible? I've read too many harem/romantic comedies in my lifetime, but what they all have in common is that they're always heavily biased towards one love interest.

Is it possible for every contender to have a fair chance? Even if the m ...
Older female/younger male romance (specific)

I already know that there's a tag for that, but I want to narrow it down even further.

-I don't want the difference to be too small (for example, a kouhai/senpai relationship with only a 1-year difference)

-But it also can't be too big (for example, a no ...
