But ya, I do consider romancing a childhood friend to be cute. I wonder how often it happens in real life...
The problem isn't a real life, the problem is it's almost never work in manga\anime. No matter how childhood friend character tries to get M ...
|Manga becomming Childish?
(24 posts, 4003 views) Posted: 523d 13h, 16m ago by Madzai in Manga General
Another issue is the constant battle with deadlines. Coming up with a mature story and cranking out a chapter every week or so is challenging. You have to do research, you have to maintain a certain level in your art, you have to come up with ideas that wo ...

You should add another vote, "English isn't my native language, so it's hard to find bad grammer\spelling"
I think where are a lot of ppl around the world who prefer to read english translantions\scanlations. In countires where anime\manga ...
|What makes a good shounen storyline?
(23 posts, 4706 views) Posted: 762d 1h, 13m ago by Madzai in Shounen/Seinen
A solid backstoty and world lore. In case of "school" shounen a lot of well-writen side-characters. In short, mangakas need a space for maneuver if their manga became popular. Just exploiting one good idea may lead to disaster and lack of any dece ...
|New Poll - Disliking Stereotypes

Stange poll. Some "stereotypes" aren't stereotypes at all.
The perfect character. I hate them guts, but TRULY perfect characters are 99% shojo only thing. In shounen perfect characters are ether really f**cked up in the end (only "lookin ...
|Antipiracy going overboard?

A bit of OT but,
C'mon ppl open your eyes already! Just application of more harsh law never works. Living in Russia i saw rise of legal contence with my own eyes. In 90th and in 2000-2005 99% of all contents were pirated (games, software, music and even b ...

Fist of all i want to say what i am not a saint or some moral fag. I really like to read hentai incest stories and ecchi stuff like KissxSis, Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janaindakara ne!!, Aki no Sora etc. But all this stories are fictional from beginning. No one in s ...

Eureka from Eureka 7.
And Honoka from Negima. Why it's so wrong to like shy and quite types?
And Hinagiku from Hayate is good one, even if she's a bit of tsun. ...

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge hilarious manga, like an extreme version of Ouran Host Club. But romance is really slow. ...

(3 posts, 557 views) Posted: 1259d 2h, 21m ago by Madzai in I'm Looking For...
Kaze no Stigma - Kouen no Miko fits. But manga is short and unfinished. Also, there is an anime.
Soul Eater somewhat fits since Soul always tease Maka. ...

|Good Long Manga

If you're ok with Shounen/Seinen and unfinished manga there is topic Successor to Bleach/Naruto/One Piece. Almost all manga mentioned there is long and awesome, just find one that suit your taste more.
|Shoud i read or watch?
(8 posts, 692 views) Posted: 1268d 0h, 55m ago by Madzai in Manga General
Code Geass anime is just epic. Manga is anime based and big part of it is spinoff and side stories.
Ghost in the shell have awesome drawing, CG and atmosphere, but manga is much more mature - blood, gore, sex scenes etc., but drawing is well.. from 90th...

Quote from CantoneseAnime
Kaze no Stigma is an good one.
But Kaze no Stigma novel author passed away so no more manga or anime.
So i'm looking for that kind of character too, but someone reasonable not just ruthless avenger, someone who kick h ...

Quote from Madzai
I don't think Toradora is a shounen, it's like romance comedy turned into a bit of drama.
Toradora! is a shounen, it's not up to you to decide that, lol. And I second it, it's the best recent romance shoune ...

I don't think Toradora is a shounen, it's like romance comedy turned into a bit of drama. And Tsubasa fits perfectly at first glance but it's just strange like all Clamp works.
After a long time watching anime and reading manga i started to wonder ...
|WTF is with these shounen romantic comedies?

Quote from ForteAtrox
The only exception maybe Hayate no Gotoku, but only anime. And the ridiculousness really annoyed me, so i never got to read the manga properly. The reason i watch it because i want to see Hayate's development as a character.

Ai yori Aoshi Oblivious choice. Very good romantic manga. Sweet good ending included.
Aa Megami-sama The male lead is little bit passive, but overall manga is great.
Both mangas have some ecchi moments, but not between main couples.

(11 posts, 1685 views) Posted: 1281d 6h, 38m ago by Madzai in I'm Looking For...
So that's more important? Romance or Seinen part?
About resolved romance - Ai yori Aoshi.
And Aa Megami-sama have resolved romance, but it's a ongoing and male character is a little bit weak.
Both are pretty long. ...
|Older readers become more closed minded.

Older readers become more closed minded.
It's obvious. I think for a younger auditory all manga is a new experience positive or not. But for a older ppl( i'm 24 now, and a start watching anime around 20 and reading manga at 22) you usually tend to w ...

I get very depressed and my mind go blank for a couple of days. And, the problem is, that where is no real difference between good and bad(for any reason) ending.
If ending was good i fell very sad coz I'll never see my favorite characters again, even if st ...
