How long did it take you to learn Japanese?
(11 posts, 558 views) Posted: 26d 20h, 52m 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, 108 views) Posted: 28d 17h, 37m 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, 422 views) Posted: 40d 23h, 57m 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, 422 views) Posted: 41d 19h, 31m 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 think that might be it. I'll ask. Thank you. ...
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!

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, 1388 views) Posted: 158d 3h, 55m 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, 24245 views) Posted: 204d 1h, 40m 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, 869 views) Posted: 448d 3h, 2m 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, 10414 views) Posted: 479d 1h, 24m 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, 16365 views) Posted: 495d 6h, 22m 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, 10391 views) Posted: 496d 5h, 0m 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, 3065 views) Posted: 504d 6h, 42m 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?
(1421 posts, 105220 views) Posted: 515d 1h, 38m 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, 5836 views) Posted: 531d 5h, 34m 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?
(513 posts, 69545 views) Posted: 539d 7h, 37m 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, 2708 views) Posted: 772d 17h, 54m 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!
(523 posts, 113169 views) Posted: 795d 23h, 39m 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?

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

Zettai Jousei is pretty good (albeit short). The female protagonist is the rich girl type, but without bows. ...
