Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2028 posts, 488141 views) Posted: 4d 7h, 31m ago by Caiman in Manga General
I'm not sure if this has been done before (it probably has), or previous polls focused on just preference of online reading vs. physical copies.

How available are manga published in your language and country?
-In most major book stores
-Only in specialty store ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(46 posts, 1386 views) Posted: 13d 8h, 37m ago by Caiman in News
I agree with the people who say there should be a "both/all" option. If not, instead of phrasing it as "like reading x," it ought to be "tend to read more x." People are perfectly capable of having more than one like and dislike.

There ...
who else hates soowon? (May be spoilers)
(7 posts, 356 views) Posted: 24d 22h, 29m ago by Caiman in Akatsuki no Yona
My main beef with Soowon is that he's a traitor and a kinslayer. How can you trust your country with someone who could so easily kill his own family? He also has some weird thing where he feels that he has to hide the fact that he isn't a total dumbas ...
Looking for lost stories
(7 posts, 398 views) Posted: 25d 17h, 44m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Not sure of the others, but I'm certain the first is the extra story "I Won't Let You Become a Star" in Absolute Boyfriend by Watase Yuu. ...
Guilty pleasures?
(9 posts, 932 views) Posted: 28d 20h, 40m ago by Caiman in Shoujo/Josei
Aw, I unabashedly love Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji and Hatta Ayuko's work in general.

The one shoujo that I can't stop reading, even though it's an ABSOLUTE train wreck, is Cosplay Deka. It's just so horrible in every way. Its portraya ...
name passing/inheriting
(5 posts, 314 views) Posted: 36d 17h, 33m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
I'm not sure what you want specifically in terms of subject matter, but there is name inheritance in kabuki, so that should hold true for manga about it. I don't read any myself, but I know they're out there. ...
What manga is this? 3 delinquents 1 girl
(1 posts, 203 views) Posted: 43d 17h, 4m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
It doesn't fit your description exactly, but you might be thinking of Ah! Itoshi no Banchousama. I'm not certain, so I'll try looking for one that has the details you're mentioning. ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2382 views) Posted: 52d 1h, 43m ago by Caiman in News
There are so many things that affect a person's preferences in reading. People's reasoning for liking certain genres differs vastly, far beyond their gender. ...
How long did it take you to learn Japanese?
(11 posts, 638 views) Posted: 80d 20h, 25m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
I plan to take the JLPT N3 soon (they recently added a fifth level) and am a Japanese major in university. I've studied it for 6 years, but the first four were in high school and paced very slowly. It was in a classroom setting, so my experiences are probably dif ...
How long should a scanlation group wait before picking up a series?
(2 posts, 154 views) Posted: 82d 17h, 10m ago by Caiman in Manga General
The rule many groups respect is to wait 6 months of no releases of that series before you can ask the group if they would be willing to give the project to you. This is if the group is active. Don't just take the project if the group is still active without asking! If a ...
Islamic Historical Setting
(6 posts, 459 views) Posted: 94d 23h, 31m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Thanks for the suggestions. Of the ones I haven't read, I'll try them out! Shokoku no Altair seems to deal with Ottoman Turkey (just going by the description), but it seems interesting.

I guess the Ottomans are really where it's at in terms of adapta ...
Islamic Historical Setting
(6 posts, 459 views) Posted: 95d 19h, 5m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for manga set in an Islamic historical setting. Anything from 622 is good; I like the early empires, Ilkhanids, and Mamluks, but preferably not 20th century or later. If anything is set in Muslim Spain or under the Abbasid Dynasty, that would be ideal! Milita ...

Specific Shoujo Manga

"... It's a shoujo about a really shy girl who is tall and has big, cute ears. The guy notices her in class and befriends her... The art is really clean and simple, kind of like Meguro Amu's.. There are so many shoujo manga out there!! All I can remem ...
Worst Shoujo Cliche!
(523 posts, 115290 views) Posted: 202d 7h, 10m ago by Caiman in Shoujo/Josei
Quote from ms_nobody
"Don't forget you're also a girl."

THIS. I hate this so much! Japan is a different society in which it's more acceptable to treat females as inferior, okay, but how could anyone romanticize that? It seems to happ ...
Agonizing love story
(15 posts, 1445 views) Posted: 212d 3h, 28m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
I highly recommend Tonari no Atashi. It's a great manga, and fits what you're looking for, especially if you like feeling agonized over the rival's situation. ...
older man, younger girl relationship
(20 posts, 25434 views) Posted: 258d 1h, 14m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Kore wa Koi no Hanashi is a good guardian x dependent story. The girl is in elementary in the beginning, but there isn't romance until a little later (within your specified age preferences).

Youko x Boku SS is also good (there's also an anime: Inu x Boku ...
Cures for when you're sick
(17 posts, 907 views) Posted: 502d 2h, 35m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
In the US, there's cold medicine called "Zicam" that is just a big dose of zinc, and it's usually pretty effective if you take it early on. Another good thing for sore throats and stomach aches is ginger, like ginger tea. I always drink a lot of he ...
yandere guy
(42 posts, 11098 views) Posted: 533d 0h, 58m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
If you don't mind bad ends, there's Toshi Densetsu, although it does kind of have one foot in the horror genre. Hadashi de Bara wo Fume a bit, but not much comes of it, and certainly Watashi no Megane-kun has yandere elements. You won't fi ...
Student and teacher relationship?
(10 posts, 18282 views) Posted: 549d 5h, 55m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
I'm assuming you like the newer series, because of Hirunaka no Ryuusei. Sensei Kunshu is still new, so it doesn't have many releases, but you might like that.

You can also do a search of completely scanlated shoujo manga with the tag "studen ...
What's Your Native Language?
(200 posts, 11081 views) Posted: 550d 4h, 33m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
My native language is American English (boring). I'm still just realizing that a lot of Arabic words my mom likes to use in everyday conversation aren't actually English vernacular, though (she is from Syria). ...
Your number one manga recommendation
(48 posts, 3199 views) Posted: 558d 6h, 15m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Something that really doesn't get enough attention is Otoyomegatari. The art style is refreshing, and the mangaka very obviously put a lot of work into it. A lot of people like to say that manga is an unlimited genre, but very few companies take risks in publish ...
Latest movie(s) you've seen?
(1434 posts, 109697 views) Posted: 569d 1h, 11m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
The Conjuring. I like horror rpgs and stuff, but I feel like the movies are never scary enough. That and there was a WHOLE ROW of middle/high school girls behind me. They ruined it. I should have waited for it to come out so I could watch it by myself in the basem ...
New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 6051 views) Posted: 585d 5h, 7m ago by Caiman in News
I suppose I'm one of those unusual straight girls who likes yuri, and not yaoi. There are a lot more yuri series (or maybe because the genre is less frequently translated, it's easier to find) that have more realism and a more gender-balanced cast.

Wha ...
