|Teacher is related to the student
(9 posts, 496 views) Posted: 173d 0h, 15m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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?
Any manga where the teac ...

How long does it typically take for you to re-read a series after you've finished it?
-Days to weeks
-I never/rarely read the same manga more than once
Which do you spend more time on, anime or manga?

|Slightly different school romance
(2 posts, 354 views) Posted: 240d 2h, 41m 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 ...

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).
Optional: It could also dea ...

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
(8 posts, 510 views) Posted: 587d 4h, 59m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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 ...

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 ...

Welp, don't I look stupid, there's an actual tag with the same wording.
Thank you kind contributor, I think I'll be okay with what you've given me.

Can I get some romance series with any of the following pairings:
Employee x Boss
Co-workers (employee x employee)
Employee x Customer/Client
Any profession is fine, but I would prefer "normal" professions (customer service, manual labor, offic ...

I would like recommendations for manga where the story starts off with a main character, but later gets retired and replaced by a different character.
I use the term "retired" very loosely here, as I'm perfectly okay with the "old" pro ...

Very hilarious manga that isn't currently being translated (254 out of 335 chapters already translated; still more than enough left to keep you guys busy).

Alright, this time, I'm looking for manga where the author makes a mistake in his/her work. Nothing art-related, I'm looking for something more along the lines of character, setting, plot, etc. The bigger the mistake, the better. Even better if the author h ...

Cromartie High School: It was officially licensed at one point, but they stopped at volume 12 (chapters 1-252), then the company went kaput. Beyond that, only chapters 253 and 254 have been scanlated. There is a total of 335 chapters.

|Unimportant character gains significance

It's a long shot, but why the heck not?
So how about a manga with a character who plays an insignificant role (or was supposed to), but over time, he/she gains a great deal of development and eventually becomes part of the main cast? The less important th ...

Basically, I want humor where the punchline is very different/unrelated to the set-up of the joke and beyond a typical audience's expectations. Needless to say, most of what I'm looking for would more than likely fall under "comedy".

I'm looking for manga where something false (such as a lie, a rumor, an exaggeration, etc.) eventually becomes true.

|Large gaps between adaptations
(5 posts, 463 views) Posted: 911d 6h, 21m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
When a manga is adapted to anime (or any other medium, for that matter), it takes a few years, usually 2, maybe 4. I'm looking for some manga that have been adapted to anime much later than typical.

In a lot of manga, especially action/shounen manga, the protagonist is a hero who fights evil.
I would like a different twist to that.
I want something where the protagonist is blatantly evil, and the "bad guys" are the real heroes.
