Worst Shoujo Cliche!
(520 posts, 106399 views) Posted: 14d 3h, 34m 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, 1113 views) Posted: 23d 23h, 53m 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, 21242 views) Posted: 69d 21h, 38m 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

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

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, 10209 views) Posted: 361d 2h, 20m 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?
(166 posts, 8004 views) Posted: 362d 0h, 58m 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, 2849 views) Posted: 370d 2h, 40m 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?
(1376 posts, 95788 views) Posted: 380d 21h, 36m 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, 5032 views) Posted: 397d 1h, 32m 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 ...
Popular shojos you just don't like?
(508 posts, 65387 views) Posted: 405d 3h, 35m ago by Caiman in Shoujo/Josei
It seems like almost no one likes Special A, and I can't say I disagree. I tried to plow through it, but it didn't even hold my interest enough for me to skip to the end.

I also just could not read Kaichou wa Maid-Sama. I can't even remember why, but ...
Your opinion about the End of the World!
(45 posts, 2520 views) Posted: 638d 13h, 52m ago by Caiman in Chatter Box
Ha ha. I just find it really worrisome that some people are taking it really seriously. It makes me lose faith in the rationality of humans. I was almost convinced that it was a myth when someone I knew confessed a belief in the Illuminati. I don't want to suffer th ...
Worst Shoujo Cliche!
(520 posts, 106399 views) Posted: 661d 19h, 37m ago by Caiman in Shoujo/Josei
The worst for me is usually the fact that almost all heroines are really submissive but for some reason get all these guys for some aspect of her character that hasn't even been developed (or because they're nice. *Shudders*) The key in there is " ...
What are you playing now?
(1855 posts, 161570 views) Posted: 1039d 21h, 7m ago by Caiman in Games
I dug up my old Fable: Lost Chapters, which is a lot harder than I remember (compared to the new Fables.) ...
Harem with a unique female lead
(7 posts, 1275 views) Posted: 1039d 21h, 22m ago by Caiman in I'm Looking For...
Zettai Jousei is pretty good (albeit short). The female protagonist is the rich girl type, but without bows. ...
