Fuuka now, wow...

So he killed her off? Well, I thought he was just recycling Suzuka and KNIM, so this is an improvement. I'd dropped it about 20 chapters ago anyway.

Maybe he's going to rip off Kirara and have her be a ghost guiding her boyfriend in the past? ...
Has anyone played any galge games in English and what were your thought on it?
(7 posts, 420 views) Posted: 50d 8h, 1m ago by senile_seinen in Games
What, no love for Katawa Shoujo? It's basically a doujin galge written by all native English speakers on one of the common game engines. Good music, not bad plots, and does a good job of not having the usual total doormat main character.

Under Rated Manga with Awesome Plot, Twist and Art
(19 posts, 1733 views) Posted: 60d 5h, 4m ago by senile_seinen in I'm Looking For...
I'll second Amagoi, which is a happy recent discovery, and add a bonus of Houseki no Kuni, which is another happy recent discovery.

Forgot to mention Chimoguri Ringo to Kingyobachi Otoko, which definitely isn't following 'the rules.'

If yo ...
Under Rated Manga with Awesome Plot, Twist and Art

I don't know exactly which genre you're looking for, but seinen/josei are going to generally be where you find the weirder (and thus more interesting) plots.

There actually have been quite a few manga lately that I looked at as being unusual treatments ...

I pretty much only read manga on my 10" Android tablet. I used to read it on a laptop, but then the laptop died and all the replacement options had 16x9 screens which were great for viewing manga...if you turned the laptop sideways. The old high-res 4x3 scre ...
A Silent Voice - Koe no Katachi Manga to End on November 12
(2 posts, 1210 views) Posted: 101d 6h, 55m ago by senile_seinen in Koe no Katachi
I saw some commentary to this effect on 4chan back in August quoting an interview as its source. Not surprised. The plot really can go only so many places. They're frankly smart not to go over 9000 with it... ...
Why the weak heroines?
(12 posts, 796 views) Posted: 168d 5h, 10m ago by senile_seinen in Shoujo/Josei
Shoujo heroines usually have to be doormats because a) that's the societal role message Japanese shoujos get every day, and the shoujo manga published tend to deliberately reinforce it, and b) because the shoujo version of a bildungsroman has to inclu ...
New Poll - Bust
(96 posts, 5915 views) Posted: 454d 6h, 5m ago by senile_seinen in News
In manga, I like them to 'make sense' for the character. If the girl is, say, a serious athlete, it's generally rare to see a lot of fat anywhere on her, including her chest. Anything involving a first year highschooler or younger should probably be p ...

This is the day of machine lettering in comics and manga both. From what I have seen, the people typing the text into the bubbles are at the very bottom of the manga production food chain. I doubt there's either the time or the artistic force from the letterers ...

My typesetting on the first couple of chapters of HnFM is a little embarrassing because I was still learning the mechanics, but I went back and looked at the font choices and found little to complain about. That said, Hara's not the most creative mangaka wher ...

I am a super font snob. In my own scanlation work, on Hoshi no Furu Machi, WA!, and Mangaka-san there was always consideration of authorial intent.the original Japanese fonts used and application of a particular font (SFX, shouts, whispers, printed/displayed vs s ...

a Manga that makes fun of cliches
(21 posts, 2617 views) Posted: 805d 3h, 11m ago by senile_seinen in I'm Looking For...
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha practically is all making fun of sword and sorcery game cliches. The characters don't even have names - they're known entirely by their character class.

Ouran Koukou Host Bu also qualifies. But I have to say that the anime do ...
Shonen/Seinen with "feminine" art

Soothing seinen has quite a bit of what you seek, although the plots might be a little relaxed if you like shounen.

As already mentioned:
Aqua
Aria

But also:
Sketchbook
Hidamari Sketch
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
Kabu no Isaki

And all of you suggesting CLAMP works like ...

Quote from Damnedman
I'm surprised no one mentioned Aria and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. They're among the best slice of life I've read so far. Genshiken also kinda fits I guess.


Seconding both Aria and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. You' ...

Any manga suggestion?

Romances with strong female leads and some comedic element...

Shoujo:
kare kano
fruits basket

Shounen:
suzuka
karin
video girl ai
midori no hibi (yes, Midori seems rather damp to start with, but she turns out to have quite a spine)


Seinen:
ai-ren rather short on comedy ...

cool headed female lead

You're heading toward tsundere territory with this. There are a lot of tsundere comedy romance mangas out there. But you're not asking for that, so I'll try to keep the tsundere down to a dull roar.

Off the top of my head:

A NORMAL Romance
(20 posts, 2142 views) Posted: 984d 6h, 49m ago by senile_seinen in I'm Looking For...
I'm old. And a guy. As you might guess, teenage infatuation shoujo romances don't hold a lot of fun for me. That said, I am something of a romantic in my crusty, cynical way.

If I had to choose exactly one romance it would probably be Ai-Ren. It' ...

Hiyoko no GAO Recruiting TL for Hoshi no Furu Machi
(1 posts, 413 views) Posted: 1310d 13h, 1m ago by senile_seinen in Recruitment
Our translator on the Hoshi no Furu Machi project is unable to work on Volume 2. The vocabulary is fairly easy, but there are two surprises to HnFM that make it a little unusual to translate:

1. There are no hiragana over the kanji to help with translation.

2. Most of the ...

Saddest character in a manga...? (T_T)
(44 posts, 5452 views) Posted: 2830d 14h, 3m ago by senile_seinen in Manga General
bully_jesus makes a legitimate point - are we talking about someone who is sad, or someone who makes the reader sad?

Is sad:

1. Probably Sayoko from Mahoraba. Not too many manga feature a suicidal character.

2. Rin from Fruits Basket (she 0wns Tooru on e ...
