New Poll - Sexism
(158 posts, 5522 views) Posted: 6d 1h, 13m ago by Baniita in News
Woooooorrd.
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 ...
New Poll - Sexism
(158 posts, 5522 views) Posted: 10d 22h, 14m ago by Baniita in News
"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 ...
New Poll - Paid Manga

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, 337 views) Posted: 55d 21h, 41m 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.

Does a site like this exist yet?
(1 posts, 292 views) Posted: 56d 17h, 26m 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 ...

New Poll - Most Read Demographic

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 ...

(93 posts, 3653 views) Posted: 165d 15h, 5m ago by Baniita in News
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, 18639 views) Posted: 352d 0h, 41m 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, 2270 views) Posted: 352d 0h, 58m 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 ...
Post a genre that you hate, and let others try to change your mind
(195 posts, 18236 views) Posted: 354d 0h, 52m ago by Baniita in Manga General
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 ...

NYCC 2013 Manga License Round-Up

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, 1130 views) Posted: 354d 1h, 38m 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 ...

You do know that Hoshino has wrist problems, right? > _>
Her doctor advised her to take it easy, basically. More recently, she designed characters for Valvrave the Liberator.
I really hope she's making enough money to survive on. OTL
