Slice of life set in cafe or bakery?
(4 posts, 157 views) Posted: 0d 7h, 39m 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, 410 views) Posted: 5d 6h, 46m 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, 1156 views) Posted: 5d 6h, 53m 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
(47 posts, 1903 views) Posted: 5d 7h, 56m 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, 925 views) Posted: 7d 6h, 33m 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, 925 views) Posted: 8d 10h, 59m 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, 537 views) Posted: 10d 8h, 14m 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, 230 views) Posted: 10d 20h, 36m 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, 230 views) Posted: 11d 6h, 36m 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, 224 views) Posted: 16d 7h, 54m 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, 270 views) Posted: 17d 10h, 43m 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, 269 views) Posted: 17d 12h, 39m 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, 1459 views) Posted: 17d 14h, 21m 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, 348 views) Posted: 18d 8h, 57m 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, 269 views) Posted: 18d 9h, 27m 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, 641 views) Posted: 20d 11h, 11m 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, 385 views) Posted: 20d 11h, 21m 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, 492 views) Posted: 22d 8h, 41m 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 ...

Thanks for all the recs!! I'll be sure to check these out! smile ...
Proud/arrogant character gets broken/humbled...
(8 posts, 641 views) Posted: 25d 6h, 42m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Hi, all! I don't know why, but I've been really into this lately -- that is, proud and/or arrogant characters getting humbled (or outright broken) in a big way. This may serve to give them character development, cause them an abundance of angst, or just sh ...
New Poll - Drawing a Demographic
(15 posts, 560 views) Posted: 29d 15h, 13m ago by crazyboutcute in News
Well, as a writer in general, I aim for the young adult demographic but with a strong periphery demographic (that's what I hope for, at least ><). So it's hard to say which manga demographic I'd write for, especially since they're gen ...
Shounen/Seinen Romance About the Relationship
(10 posts, 726 views) Posted: 29d 18h, 55m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Crush on You has both a playboy and playgirl falling in love with the same person. I won't say who ends up with who, but they both do end up in monogamous relationships. ...
Two males with rivalry or love/hate relationship
(5 posts, 416 views) Posted: 31d 7h, 19m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Game x Rush sounds right up your alley. The main character is a bodyguard, and his rival is a hitman, so they're always at odds, but, iirc, they have some Go-Karting with Bowser moments and are generally pretty friendly to each other. laugh

Also, it's been ...
Tragedy or just super sad
(9 posts, 526 views) Posted: 32d 5h, 16m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Vampire Juujikai. That brought me to tears. cry
Pandora Hearts is absolutely full of tragic characters, male and female, and especially the male MC once you get deeper into the story. This series is beautifully done in general -- I can't recommend it e ...
New Poll - Self-Control
(31 posts, 847 views) Posted: 42d 13h, 36m ago by crazyboutcute in News
Okay, "when it starts getting boring" is totally irrelevant and shouldn't be an option here because the question isn't, "When do you drop a manga?" The question is, "When do you stop reading?", i.e. before going to b ...
