Your thoughts on LGBT after reading BL/GL
(15 posts, 1462 views) Posted: 247d 1h, 19m ago by Baniita in Yaoi/Yuri

In that the Japanese have very problematic terms like "okama", which can translate to either "gay" OR "transvestite", which I find extremely off-putting.

In that many of the BL/GL mangaka/authors have a poor understandi ...

Queer as Folk is just damn wonderful. Goddamn shame about the cancellation.

Ai no Kusabi is pretty meh. Though it's only an OVA, I like Tight Rope best (as well as the manga).
I couldn't get into Banana Fish at all. For more realistic BL, Kyuugou' ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 6535 views) Posted: 630d 8h, 30m ago by Baniita in News
I personally don't read BL for the smut at all. Since I'm a girl without a D, I can't find cis gay male smut relateable, and thus can't get off of it. I'd take the 24 volume epic fantasy gay romance over smut, every time.

Lol, rape/abuse in ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 6535 views) Posted: 630d 8h, 55m ago by Baniita in News
The correct term is Boys' Love. The term "shounen ai" is outdated and refers to an old genre of sad melodramatic shoujo manga where the boys are girly looking and asexual, and it usually ends in tragedy. In Japan, "shounen ai" ju ...

Pansexual (I don't care about gender) female; my world revolves around slash and BL. o/
Not even exaggerating, tho.

Lol, I suppose us fujoshi are more ubiquitous than I thought. I like yuri and all, but good yuri is damn near imposible to find; I myself only know 3 ...

Strong Female Lead, No Shoujo

...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
(18 posts, 11264 views) Posted: 719d 19h, 1m 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 ...

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 ...

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, 530 views) Posted: 812d 12h, 27m 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 ...
