If you could magically change your primary language to Japanese right now, would you do it?
For sure!
Maybe...
Sounds cool, but no thanks
No way, not even if you paid me
My primary language is already Japanese, but I'd prefer changing to something else
My primary language is already Japanese, and I wouldn't switch

New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 740 views) Posted: 6d 8h, 11m ago by Caiman in News
I took it as having a comparable skill level if you switched. If you're literate in your first language, you'll be literate in Japanese. If you're terrible at spelling, your ability to write kanji might not be good, like many Japanese people, but your reading ...
Manga set in ancient Rome/Greece?
(3 posts, 227 views) Posted: 8d 4h, 7m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
HBO's Rome is the tits. Personally, when I want fiction about antiquity, I go for the western published stuff. It tends to be better researched, the political intrigue is better fleshed out and conveyed, and it doesn't dwell on explanations that Japanese people ...
Manga About Japanese Visual Arts?
(0 posts, 113 views) Posted: 23d 7h, 49m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
There are plenty of manga about traditional performance art and literature out there, but does anyone know if there's manga about traditional visual arts? I'll define it to include crafts because there might not be much. I'd like anything from famo ...
White chocolate: Love it or hate it?
(15 posts, 629 views) Posted: 32d 3h, 10m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
White chocolate contains no cocoa powder. It's just milk, sugar, and fat. It has no chocolate flavor, which isn't quite my thing as far as chocolate is concerned. I don't really like less than 65% cacao, though. ...
Josei Older woman younger guy

I highly recommend Natsuyuki Rendezvous and Otoyomegatari. They're two of my favorite manga overall. ...
Male Yandere
(12 posts, 676 views) Posted: 34d 19h, 44m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Oops, didn't see that was already on your list. Unless you just edited it in, in which case, never mind.

I'm pretty sure there's a "male yandere" category, so you can always search that. ...
Male Yandere
(12 posts, 676 views) Posted: 34d 20h, 55m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Risou no Kareshitachi is about the shortest, fastest developing male yandere manga I know. There's suspense, but I wouldn't call it horror, per se.

Also, high-school age guy(s), no BL, and no smut. The art style depicts guys cute, but I feel that way abou ...
Age Difference Romances..why are some taboo? [Rant]
(10 posts, 888 views) Posted: 54d 20h, 16m ago by Caiman in Manga General
Quote from evilcleo
it's legal for 13 year olds to have sexual relations in Japan

This is a commonly misconstrued law. By national law, 13 is the age of sexual consent, but all prefectures have it set at 18. There are certain exemptions with parental approval, bu ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2056 posts, 498769 views) Posted: 60d 8h, 9m 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
(47 posts, 2166 views) Posted: 69d 9h, 15m 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)
(9 posts, 637 views) Posted: 80d 23h, 7m 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, 446 views) Posted: 81d 18h, 22m 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, 1067 views) Posted: 84d 21h, 18m 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, 341 views) Posted: 92d 18h, 11m 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, 226 views) Posted: 99d 17h, 42m 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, 2978 views) Posted: 108d 2h, 21m 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, 725 views) Posted: 136d 21h, 3m 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, 180 views) Posted: 138d 17h, 48m 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, 489 views) Posted: 151d 0h, 9m 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, 489 views) Posted: 151d 19h, 43m 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 ...

I believe you're looking for Hana ni Nare!. ...

I think that might be it. I'll ask. Thank you. ...
Specific Shoujo Manga
(4 posts, 269 views) Posted: 196d 1h, 41m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
"... 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!

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, 1472 views) Posted: 268d 4h, 6m 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. ...
