|Science/Logic in an illogical setting
(2 posts, 206 views) Posted: 51d 0h, 39m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for manga with a setting that has unrealistic occurrences, but science and logic is still used as if they were normal.

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.
I'm also looking f ...

I'm looking for manga that have characters who have to leave their loved ones for some reason, but come back to them with a disguise and a new identity.

|Villain/Antagonist/Bad guy is forced to become a hero
(14 posts, 1491 views) Posted: 166d 1h, 59m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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
(4 posts, 563 views) Posted: 183d 18h, 53m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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 ...

If you were a manga translator and you realize you've mistranslated the kanji of a major character's name, how would you correct it?
-Re-do all the chapters with that name in it
-Add a correction notice on the next chapter and start using the correct ...
|Bad Ending for undeserving characters
(13 posts, 1238 views) Posted: 237d 0h, 21m 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
(4 posts, 362 views) Posted: 249d 2h, 41m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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/ ...

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
(5 posts, 429 views) Posted: 427d 19h, 58m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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
(9 posts, 796 views) Posted: 645d 19h, 47m 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, 492 views) Posted: 712d 22h, 13m 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 ...
|An extended "epilogue"
(4 posts, 529 views) Posted: 905d 0h, 44m ago by 8-3 in I'm Looking For...
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, 680 views) Posted: 1060d 0h, 32m 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 ...
|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 ...

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.

Co-workers (employee x employee)

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 ...
