New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 2926 views) Posted: 496d 9h, 46m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I hate superheroes. Hate them. Like, wouldn't get near them with a ten-foot pole kind of hate. And I don't understand why everyone seems to worship them. I can't take anything about them seriously, from their foolish costumes to the cringewor ...
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(26 posts, 4037 views) Posted: 675d 12h, 44m ago by crazyboutcute in Manga General
Agreed with NightSwan here. It's the Internet, so it's pretty much anything goes -- with scanlations, videos, literature, etc. It's the parents' responsibility to monitor what their kids are accessing online.

As for scanlators drawing their own or ...
A unique psychological manga
(5 posts, 923 views) Posted: 680d 7h, 4m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Bastard (Hwang Youngchan) by one half of the team behind Melo Holic should be right up your alley. It is ongoing, but it updates weekly. Carnby's other ongoing series, City of Dead Sorcerer, might also be worth checking out, though while it started as a crim ...
New Poll - Web Comics
(19 posts, 2314 views) Posted: 691d 18h, 50m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I read a lot of them. Especially Korean webtoons. I also like the long-strip format and the fact that most of them are full-color. The art style also tends toward the more anime-ish, which is an aesthetic I particularly enjoy (not that I don't love traditional manhwa ...
New Poll - Web Novels
(35 posts, 3860 views) Posted: 697d 5h, 12m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I don't mean to sound like an elitist snob, but I'm going to now proceed to sound like an elitist snob. dead (Warning! Writerly snobbery ahead!)

On this site, anything with "Novel" in the title or "Adapted from Novel" in the tags makes me ...
LF: Focus on Male Body, Sexuality
(1 posts, 628 views) Posted: 703d 16h, 29m ago by crazyboutcute in Adult (18+)
I've always preferred yaoi over hentai, despite enjoying reading about straight relationships as well, and recently, I realized why: I have absolutely no interest in seeing the female body or female sexuality. I'm interested in men, not women, so what I' ...
New Poll - J-Pop
(19 posts, 2152 views) Posted: 706d 4h, 35m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I used to listen to it ALL THE TIME but have since moved on from it. When I was younger, I was really into the eurodance and bubblegum pop-type stuff, and a lot of j-pop fell right into that. I also played a lot of DDR, which didn't help my obsession, and watched ...
can soeone tell me what this webtoon bgm is?
(1 posts, 389 views) Posted: 706d 4h, 59m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
The artists' names are Park Hyung Seok (박형석) and Pyeon Deokhwa (편덕화), which I'm not sure I romanized correctly because I don't actually speak or read Korean. ^^; The former, at least, app ...
Something more unorthodox
(9 posts, 1140 views) Posted: 708d 4h, 33m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Pandora Hearts takes a lot of traditional shounen and fantasy tropes and turns them on their heads. AND it has major (and well-supported) plot twists. I see that it's on your wishlist. Please move it to your reading list. biggrin

Ana Satsujin is stupid as anything with its pr ...
New Poll - Best Josei
(20 posts, 3062 views) Posted: 714d 5h, 49m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I'm a little surprised that I've never actually read any of these series (barring 07-Ghost, which I dropped several chapters in because of how stale and generic it felt). Too bad Karneval didn't make the cut; that might just be my top josei at the mo ...
Smut and the Female Gaze
(12 posts, 2896 views) Posted: 719d 13h, 50m ago by crazyboutcute in Shoujo/Josei
I'm going to be the totally contrary opinion here: I freaking LOVE beautiful, androgynous men. <3 For what it's worth, I'm a heteroromantic ace with strong, detached sexual fantasies involving one or more men, or men in (generally) light fem ...
Long engaging manga

Black Haze (hilarious)
Noragami (also hilarious, with romance)
Karneval (funny and exciting)

are what I've been reading lately. eyes ...
Any aromantic yaoi suggestion?
(11 posts, 954 views) Posted: 721d 7h, 5m ago by crazyboutcute in Yaoi/Yuri
Yeah, I really don't think you're going to find any aromantic yaoi (though the concept is an interesting one). Most yaoi that I've read, if not out-and-out romances, have some ridiculous attempt at a love story forced into them to try and justify the ...
New Poll - Best Seinen
(30 posts, 4011 views) Posted: 726d 10h, 8m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I don't really feel qualified to vote, as I've read only one of the listed series, so I'll refrain this round. Seinen is the demo I'm most deficient in, so I guess it's to be expected. My current favorite is Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi, though, whic ...
Gentle looking but actually OP protagonist
(9 posts, 1533 views) Posted: 732d 4h, 45m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Hey, OP, you miiiight want to spoiler tag that.

Anyway, Black Haze has the adorable, squishy Rood! |D (On the right in my signature pic, actually.) You might also try perusing the "Deceptively Weak-Looking Protagonist" category. wink ...
Cute romance with adorable adult couple
(13 posts, 2086 views) Posted: 733d 2h, 40m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
I don't read a lot of romances, but lately, I've been drooling over unTouchable (Massstar). If you're looking for an aDORKable adult couple, you'll find one here. I mean, there really isn't another name for it when someone calls her ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 5625 views) Posted: 733d 2h, 53m ago by crazyboutcute in News
My vote goes to Natsume. It's just so sweet and serene, and like someone else said, it stirs up all kinds of emotions in the reader apart from what one might be inclined to call the "typical shoujo fare" (namely romantic ones).

Akagami no Shirayu ...
Expiration Dating
(2 posts, 435 views) Posted: 738d 7h, 6m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Not sure if this is entirely what you're looking for, but the BL Seven Days had one of the main pair date the first person who asked him out on Monday morning and always ended up breaking up with her by that Sunday because she wasn't "the on ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 5230 views) Posted: 739d 10h, 15m ago by crazyboutcute in News
Pfft, Pandora Hearts, hands down, period. I consider it a literary classic of the 21st century. (Now I just need someone to canonize it. laugh ) But seriously, I haven't read a piece of literature maybe ever that's touched me quite like this series has. An abso ...
New Poll - Manga Ads
(29 posts, 2644 views) Posted: 747d 8h, 58m ago by crazyboutcute in News
If the free releases depended on a click per chapter, I would. But otherwise, I wouldn't, though I would turn my adblock off for that site if requested to do so. I DO love supporting series I like, but I find advertising to be generally sleazy, and I'm very rarely ...
Twisty, non main stream title
(13 posts, 1306 views) Posted: 751d 6h, 46m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Yeah, I tend to not really enjoy a lot of mainstream titles. Maybe it's because they're over-hyped, or maybe they're just too simplistic for me and rely on the same popular (and overdone) tropes, but I just can't seem to ever get into them ...
Male MC Physical/Emotional Abuse
(3 posts, 910 views) Posted: 754d 6h, 44m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Yeah, basically, I'm looking for a good ol'-fashioned whumping of a (preferably cute) male MC (or even a prominent supporting character). Physical and/or mental/emotional abuse are all fine. I'd prefer it if he grows stronger as a result, thoug ...
Hated protagonist
(5 posts, 2192 views) Posted: 754d 7h, 4m ago by crazyboutcute in I'm Looking For...
Vampire Juujikai fits the bill quite well. There's also the more human drama-heavy Natsume Yuujinchou where the protagonist is hated because he can see youkai while most other people can't (and therefore, they think he's creepy and/or a l ...
New Poll - Maid Cafes
(18 posts, 2832 views) Posted: 754d 7h, 22m ago by crazyboutcute in News
I'd go just to check it out. From what I understand, they run the gamut from sleazy to family-friendly, a la Hooters (which incidentally is not my thing, but that's beside the point). Of course, I'd prefer period/conservative, mildly stylized maid outfits, n ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 2568 views) Posted: 759d 4h, 40m ago by crazyboutcute in News
Don't mean to take the moral high ground here, but as a librarian, I feel have to say something. And that something is this: Please, please, please, please, please don't steal from libraries! Especially ones that are publicly funded! We generally don' ...
