Unless the summary is especially interesting to me, I always go by the rating actually. In my experience, if there's already more than a chapter or three scanlated and the rating is hovering around 9.0, it usually isn't shit. Exceptions withstanding of cour ...
|Rurouni Kenshin ...anime or manga?
(8 posts, 1419 views) Posted: 2468d 9h, 38m ago by Amagasa in Rurouni Kenshin
Manga is the way to go. Like someone already said, the last 30-40 episodes are entirely filler, so unless you really liked the manga and want to see it animated, I'd give a skip to the anime.
Now with that said... after you're done with the manga, you absol ...

I don't believe I'm reading any shotacon/lolicon titles, but completely removing all information of titles in those genres is something I wouldn't want. I could live with just removing the download links though, I suppose. ...

Well, according to John Lennon...
Love is real, real is love, ...
Love is feeling, feeling love,
Love is wanting to be loved.
Love is touch, touch is love,
Love is reaching, reaching love,
Love is asking to be loved.
Love is you,
You and me.
Love is knowing
We can be.
Love is free, free is love,
Love is living, living love,
Love is needing to be loved.

Recently, someone who I really adored watching on youtube died suddenly. I never would've thought that I'd cry or be depressed about something like this for someone I've never even met or talked to much at all, I was still d ...

Only very rarely, and only the really good, still on-going ones where I need to refresh my memory to fully enjoy reading on. So far I've only re-read Beck and Berserk, and I suppose I'll end up re-reading Vagabond at some point down the line. Other tha ...

Asano Inio's works come to mind. Though it it's labeled as seinen, Solanin would be a good bet. It'll surely appeal to you if you'd normally like a serious josei, too. ...

Like a few others, I'd recommend the Genki books. Using it myself right now, as well. Another book I've heard being called the best, aside from Genki, is Minna no Nihongo. Haven't looked at it myself so I can't really comment on it further ...

I'm still in the middle of reading these so I've no idea how prominent the love triangles in them are going to be, but the romance is definitely there. Both are just excellent to me, so far at least. Great high school silliness for tim ...

Agnostic atheist here.
That's impossible. They don't go together.
Agnostic = belief that the existence and nature of God is not known and cannot be known.
Atheist = belief that God flatly does not exist.
