I don't think I can answer this question with the answers provided. I'm male and I tend to make whatever kind of character seems to round out the party or fit the scenario better. I think I'm about 50/50 on this one. I've played more male c ...

Age Difference Romances..why are some taboo? [Rant]

In the USA it's illegal for a person above age 18 to have a sexual relationship with a person under something defined as the 'age of consent' which varies depending on just where you are in the country, but averages age 16. A few places stil ...

A great start! I have some favorites in there. I'll add to the list:

The Rise of Novels
(27 posts, 2681 views) Posted: 192d 9h, 26m ago by senile_seinen in Manga General
Like a lot of people, I got into light novels during the Haruhi thing. The anime came out and people started scanlating the manga, but at the same time a batch of translators and editors founded Baka-Tsuki and started working on the novels.

They pretty much single-h ...
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, 1052 views) Posted: 263d 10h, 48m 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

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 ...

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

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, 1242 views) Posted: 381d 7h, 57m 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, 7016 views) Posted: 667d 8h, 52m 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 ...
New Poll - Fonts (v2)
(70 posts, 10980 views) Posted: 952d 8h, 4m ago by senile_seinen in News
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 ...

Seinen, totally unique, and only available because somebody translated the Korean translation:


a Manga that makes fun of cliches

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:

But also:
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' ...

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, 2369 views) Posted: 1197d 9h, 36m 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' ...
