|Option to exclude certain mangas
(6 posts, 575 views) Posted: 1d 11h, 10m ago by Pebble_ in Suggestions & Bugs
I agree with train93, it would be very useful to be able to exclude only specific lists.
For example if you're looking for a series that you think is on one of your lists, but not the 'complete series' ones : currently you can't choose which lists to ...

I think Franken Fran is more "funny & creepy" as the OP doesn't want.
You could try Alive. It's not really scary (well it depends on the reader) but it has great focus on psychological issues.
Doubt and Judge might also be what you' ...
|Must-Read Yaoi for a Presentation
(18 posts, 1056 views) Posted: 170d 5h, 9m ago by Pebble_ in Yaoi/Yuri
If you're still looking, I'd suggest Sakura Gari if you'd like to talk about "darker" yaoi, with such themes as, well, rape, stockholm syndrom, etc. but still very well written, so it could be considered a "must-read" (imo).

|would you rather be really hot or really cold
(67 posts, 3551 views) Posted: 199d 8h, 25m ago by Pebble_ in Chatter Box
I think I heard that the human body is better suited to adapt to (and survive) extreme cold temperatures than extreme hot temperatures.
Anyway, I'd go with cold if I had to choose. I don't like being cold but I like being too hot even less. ...

In most cases, I loathe it. Especially when you can tell its sole purpose is to appeal to a not-in-this-for-the-plot! audience, and it has nothing to do with the story. It breaks flow, it's bad for the atmosphere and it objectifies characters it's used on... ...

|are all yaoi and yuri porn?
(15 posts, 1433 views) Posted: 305d 8h, 27m ago by Pebble_ in Yaoi/Yuri
sex does not equal porn!
Not all yaoi and yuri are porn. As to how to differentiate, I don't have any special criteria, but you can usually tell if you're reading/watching porn of something else.->When there is a story, when the sex isn't meaning ...
