dark manga
(1 posts, 179 views) Posted: 0d 15h, 9m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
I'm more of a Gothic horror/dark fantasy/psychological thriller type as opposed to outright horror/anything on Junji Ito's level, but here are some dark-ambient recommendations if you're interested:

Ana Satsujin (one of the weirdest romance ...

Competent Girl, Geeky Guy
(4 posts, 321 views) Posted: 3d 9h, 24m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
S Senjou no Tena has a strong female lead and a male lead who's a music otaku. Not sure if that's exactly what you meant by "geek," but there you go. ^.^ ...
Female>Male Power Dynamic

Thanks for the recommendations, everyone!! biggrin Currently already reading a few of these, but many I hadn't come across before, so I'll be sure to check them out! smile ...
Female>Male Power Dynamic
(5 posts, 356 views) Posted: 5d 9h, 9m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for manga that have female-male dynamics where the female character is either in a position of power over the male character or is in some way the more dominant or proactive of the pair. I'm not necessarily looking for femdom or ro ...
Animal-like Main?
(7 posts, 324 views) Posted: 5d 10h, 3m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Wild @ Heart, which is shoujo and tagged as romance. I've got the omnibus and haven't actually finished it yet, so I don't know how "intense" the romance actually gets (though in a ...
Exclusively Anime
(7 posts, 445 views) Posted: 18d 10h, 11m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Original Anime:
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (all around great anime)
Angel Beats (fun and sad)
Darker Than Black (great concept but lost potential, and the second season is kinda bleh)
Ano Hana (haven't watched it yet, but it's supposed to be really go ...
Slice of life set in cafe or bakery?
(4 posts, 273 views) Posted: 27d 10h, 15m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Antique Bakery is the classic BL one, isn't it? I haven't read it yet, though. >.< (But I saw the movie!)

There's also Kinou Nani Tabeta? by the same author, which isn't set in a cafe, but it has BL and food prep, so I thought I'd men ...
manga with female protagonist and implied threesome
(2 posts, 554 views) Posted: 32d 9h, 23m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is The Gentlemen's Alliance, where at the end,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the twins seem intent on sharing the protagonist at her own wedding.
And I'm not even sure that was the author's inte ...
Please renew my faith in manga
(22 posts, 1437 views) Posted: 32d 9h, 30m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Out of curiosity, may I ask why you hated Vampire Juujikai? I'm a feminist as well and recall rather liking it (though it was pretty heavy on the "tragedy porn"), and its portrayal of female characters was acceptable to me a few years ago (when ...
Sexism in manga
(60 posts, 4020 views) Posted: 32d 10h, 32m ago by crazyboutcute in Manga General
My biggest problem with sexism and objectification in manga is how it's marketed. To young boys, especially (ick). Like, I don't care if you have a fetish for women being objectified. I have a fetish for men being objectified, so I get it, enjoy your fantasy ...
Please Defend This Torture Porn
(7 posts, 1030 views) Posted: 34d 9h, 10m ago by crazyboutcute in Dead Tubu
Oh, feel free to enjoy whatever you like -- I don't judge since I shamelessly read and enjoy quite a bit of garbage myself. And if you are genuinely interested in the story and think it's good, by all means, please do assert that! I'm not claiming my ...
Please Defend This Torture Porn
(7 posts, 1030 views) Posted: 35d 13h, 36m ago by crazyboutcute in Dead Tubu
I haven't read it (for exactly the reasons you've named -- plotless gorn and sexual exploitation intended to titillate), but I can tell you why certain people like it:

1. It's exciting. Personally, I'm bored to tears by fiction lacking substance, especia ...
MC looks like child but must hide mature mentality
(5 posts, 611 views) Posted: 37d 10h, 51m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
The protagonist of Boku dake ga Inai Machi is an adult with a strange power that occasionally skips him back in time against his will in order to stop a death that occurred somewhere near him. Eventually, he ends up getting sent all the way back to his childhood to tr ...
Gothic Horror Manga
(3 posts, 287 views) Posted: 37d 23h, 13m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Ohh wow, that's a whole lot of recs!! Thank you so much!! biggrin And yup, Monster definitely counts as a more modern variant -- it is based on Frankenstein, after all! wink And you're right -- shoujo and josei are definitely going to have a lot of it because of the ...
Gothic Horror Manga
(3 posts, 287 views) Posted: 38d 9h, 13m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Hi, all! I'm planning a Gothic Horror in Anime/Manga panel for a con next year, and I'd like to get a head start by collecting recs! For those of you unfamiliar with its origins and MO, Gothic horror is a subgenre of the Romantic movement of the 18th ce ...
normal Heroin/Hero
(2 posts, 260 views) Posted: 43d 10h, 31m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Well, normal heroin is the kind that you ingest by -cough- Oh, you meant heroine? laugh

Teasing aside, try:

Pandora Hearts
Torikago Gakkyuu
Dolls Code
Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist
Kyokou no Ou
Mahou Tsukai no Neko
Saihate no Ao

All of them have protagonists who a ...
Can Anyone help?
(3 posts, 298 views) Posted: 44d 13h, 19m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Do you happen to remember any other details? A demographic would be helpful. I'm assuming it's not hentai/shouta/loli/yaoi/yuri, so I ruled those out. I did some searching around, and the only two "kimono maid" series I could find were:

C ...
Manhwa
(7 posts, 300 views) Posted: 44d 15h, 15m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Angel Diary, I remember that one being quite fun. ^^ Kara have a lovely art style. (On the other hand, Demon Diary was quite... eh.)

Anyway, as for webtoons, I'd recommend Crepuscule (Yamchi) and Black Haze for nice, slower-paced fantasies. C ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 1873 views) Posted: 44d 16h, 57m ago by crazyboutcute in News
Another acey-ace here (het-rom female), and I'm pretty open to any kind of romance. ^.^ I voted same-sex, though to be honest, I haven't read any GL (got some on my wishlist, though). Mostly, I read BL -- shounen-ai for the romance and yaoi for the ...
mc is exiled and hated but saves people
(3 posts, 435 views) Posted: 45d 11h, 34m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
If I'm not mistaken, Akai Sato no Tengu is a oneshot with a similar theme to that (but it's been awhile since I read it ^^; ).

Monster and Child is another oneshot that isn't exactly what you're looking for but that has a character who shows une ...
Manhwa
(7 posts, 300 views) Posted: 45d 12h, 3m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Han Yu Rang isn't actually a real person but rather many different artists who publish what basically amounts to "pulp manhwa" (or Harlequin romances, for a modern equivalent ;S) under one name (same with Hwang Mi Ri). Personally, I find " ...
Proud/arrogant character gets broken/humbled...
(8 posts, 675 views) Posted: 47d 13h, 48m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
I'll definitely make sure to check out Real! And Onani Master Kurosawa is one of the manga I'm embarrassed to have on my wishlist, but I've been hearing good things about it, so I'll check it out! laugh

Komomo Confiserie also sounds good (c ...
Manga that has Totalitarian Setting
(4 posts, 424 views) Posted: 47d 13h, 58m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Can't think of any overtly totalitarian manga off the top of my head, but if you're interested in dystopias in general, there's:

Mother Keeper -- has rebel armies of impoverished outsiders trying to bring down the walled paradise inhabited by the go ...
Obsessive Loyalty
(4 posts, 533 views) Posted: 49d 11h, 18m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Pandora Hearts has quite a bit of obsession, loyalty, and obsessive loyalty. laugh It falls all over the spectrum, but there are at least a few male/male examples (Gil/Oz, Elliot/Leo, Vincent/Gil <--- not sure how, err... "consensual" that one is, but it is very obs ...
