New Poll - Sexism

That's the thing. Heteronormativity and traditional gender roles are so deeply ingrained into Japanese culture that it's depressing. < _> Well, if they manage to breed at all, what with their lifestyles and men living at the office and com ...

Lol it was obvious people were going to whine about the SJW. :I People, it's not social justice itself that's the annoying problem. Annoying people just happen to be prevalent everywhere, and often in neo-social justice. Sure, there are a lot of shitheads ...

"Falling in love with their rapist"--welp. I can't say much about this, because it happens way too much in yaoi manga, and I can't say I haven't seen it done well, because I think Koisuru Boukun and Sakura Gari and a few others are gr ...

Last time I counted, I believe I owned about 260+ volumes of English-translated manga, and 28 Japanese tankoubon. ...Ironically, the doujinshi I have probably add up to cost more. Lots and lots.

I've reached around 3000 volumes read though (about 2200 of tho ...

Just AKB49 for me, really... Koe no Katachi should've just stayed a one-shot. It got boring. Nanatsu no Taizai has gotten really downhill; the plot's a mess and the writing is no good. UQ Holder seemed good from the first few chapters and then it got rea ...

7th Garden looks amazing...
(4 posts, 371 views) Posted: 76d 11h, 1m ago by Baniita in 7th Garden
I was in a convenience store yesterday and SQ had the first chapter (I think?) of 7th Garden. The art was gorgeous. O _O Is any group picking it up?

I can't read much Japanese yet (still studying). If anyone else read it, was it good? What was it about? ...

They do explain it in the second season. Just watch.

Just as Sebas was about to consume Ciel's soul, Claude took it. I forget the details. It didn't start over.

Does a site like this exist yet?
(1 posts, 316 views) Posted: 77d 6h, 45m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Unless there's a site like this already, but I'm wondering why this doesn't exist (to my knowledge):

A manga release aggregation site like Manga Updates, but since this place isn't allowed to host scanlation group site links anymore (to my ...

The problem is the lack of good authors for GL. Girl Friends remains really the only GL I actually really like. Morinaga Milk is a goddess (god? idk). Though I have been noticing more GL with actual subtance though; yay! Collectors and Octave!
And girl-girl relationshi ...

I wanted to vote "BL", but it wasn't an option. :T (And no, yaoi and BL are NOT synonymous. So I went with shounen-ai, even though that term is incorrect and outdated.
Hahaha wow--the numbers for yaoi are impressive, though.

I read every demog ...

How to find more manga (guide)
(43 posts, 18778 views) Posted: 372d 14h, 1m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Ehe, I guess this is something you can only do if you're in Japan or have access to a Japanese bookstore overseas, but I like to take a pencil and paper to Book-Off, K-Books, or manga cafes. I write down the titles that catch my interest, and look it up to read ...
How much work do redrawers/cleaners do?
(13 posts, 2368 views) Posted: 372d 14h, 18m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Aaah, I see. So this "Topaz" plug-ins explains a lot. I'll have to look into it.

The kanzenban sound like they'd take even longer to release than the tankoubon, and those are only for the very popular series, anyway, right? The SJ in N. America ...

Sports manga (for guys), pointless and shallow ecchi manga (I read het hentai just fine though, for some reason--maybe because I know it's supposed to be shallow?), and retro manga.

Seriously, Slam Dunk was cheesy as hell. I never actually picked up GTO ...

Wow, UQ Holder is only in single-digit chapters, isn't it? Already.

Well, Negima was really good... UQ Holder's protagonist is totally lame, though. :T

Yaaay! Nanatsu got serialized! Of course it did. That shit is great.

Ah, I really like the mangaka of Kuro Bar ...
Manga Reborn: The future of manga scanlation?
(10 posts, 1145 views) Posted: 374d 14h, 58m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Ooh, sounds like a great concept. But just that, and doesn't sound feasible. The good stuff are all owned by grubby, stingy companies. Sharing culture in Japan is different.

Also, I'm not interested in retro manga at all. :C I tried Jojo several times, and I ju ...

So I live in Japan now, and I went into a convenience store to take a look at last week's Jump, and the printing quality is absolutely horrible--no wonder it's only 250 yen. The blacks are grey, and aren't solids at all, the printing paper are hideous sh ...
good untranslated manga

Ah, I second Bambino Secondo.

Kami no Shizuku is very good (it's an A+ seinen sommelier manga), but Vertical dropped it after the 5th bundle volume. The art is fantastic, it's informational, and interesting.

Life was licensed by Tokyopop, but since they c ...

Quote from cl123
I am really curious about the relationship between gender and "shipping"/rooting for your characters to be together. From my understanding, the stereotype is that females predominantly do so, so I am interested to see if that's ...
