Piano no Mori Manga to End in Its 26th Volume

...the title is a bit of a poor choice in wording. sad I know what you mean, though. There's a bit of stigma associated with "strong female characters" in that many people think that should only mean "masculine, strong women that go around sa ...
D.Gray Man Returning after a 2 year hiatus
(16 posts, 3030 views) Posted: 85d 19h, 7m ago by Baniita in D-Grayman
NO ONE said that she was returning any time soon.

PLEASE stop spreading false rumours and false hope.

From what it looks like, it looks like she has been working on these chapters for a while. Do you have any idea how long it'd take to get to the point of g ...
New Poll - Pleasure Reading

I tried reading The Fault in Our Stars. Really, I tried. I couldn't do it. Not even the audio book.
I just can't get into it. Not without thinking "gee, I could be spending this time doing so many better things."

The only words-only things I read are light no ...

New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 8671 views) Posted: 127d 20h, 20m ago by Baniita in News
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 ...
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 ...
Magazine Big 3

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 ...

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? ...

Does a site like this exist yet?
(1 posts, 355 views) Posted: 178d 12h, 32m 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, 19533 views) Posted: 473d 19h, 48m 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, 3159 views) Posted: 473d 20h, 5m 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

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, 1223 views) Posted: 475d 20h, 45m 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 ...
