Site Poll - Chat Box 160 - Manga in E-Book Format
(26 posts, 3290 views) Posted: 2203d 17h, 25m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
I can say that I did buy a manga for my kindle from Amazon once, but I couldn't see the small print on the panels so I got a refund. I do however use Netcomics, even though the whole rental thing annoys me. ...
Sterotypical/Racist images in Manga

Hajime no Ippo has a boxing match against an American soldier where they actually do diagrams explaining how Black people are naturally superior at boxing. I found it kind of offensive, but I probably was overeacting. There is also a graphic prison yaoi manga c ...

The guide to studying and getting an A on all your classes!
(116 posts, 9234 views) Posted: 2647d 5h, 46m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
Most colleges want your average on a 4.0 scale but their are different scales used by different school districts. I've heard of 5.0 scales and others. My district weighted Advanced Placement classes; this meant that AP courses were on 5.0 scales and all o ...
First Shoujo Manga
(453 posts, 54736 views) Posted: 2712d 12h, 51m ago by alusandrea in Shoujo/Josei
Marmalade Boy. Bought it without knowing it was a manga and ended up buying the entire series to know what happened. ...
Avatar: The Last Airbender live action movie
(115 posts, 10543 views) Posted: 2726d 20h, 5m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
I liked the show and everything, but I decided to boycott the movie (which sucks because I know it's probably going to be awesome). My reasoning can be explained by the link below. And yes, I fully admit to being oversensitive as an African American passi ...
Why do people hate Sasuke?
(477 posts, 80038 views) Posted: 2738d 10h, 6m ago by alusandrea in Naruto
I hate Sasuke because he's an idiot (the fact that I think he may be gay doesn't contribute to it). His brother sacrifices his life so that he can have a chance to be happy and he throws it away because the series arch villain gives him a fake story.
I fee ...
Fantasy Shoujo where Bad Guy gets Good Girl

Basara. The main character is a female freedom fighter while her love interest, who she eventually ends up, with is the evil Red King, one of the rulers of the evil empire she fights against. ...
Shounen Losers
(19 posts, 5378 views) Posted: 2905d 11h, 49m ago by alusandrea in Shounen/Seinen
I just wanted to start a topic about the constant losers of shounen manga. I would like to start with the great classic loser of DBZ: Krilin. Short and weak, he dies or is almost killed frequently from beginning to end. Usopp from One Piece can count too, even though ...

Feminine Hero
(10 posts, 3355 views) Posted: 3039d 1h, 18m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
Thanks for the suggestions biggrin
I've already been reading a lot of those like Otomen and Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero (a personal favorite with the adorably evil Akira) and Vanilla Ice and really enjoyed them besides owning all the English volumes of Charm ...
Feminine Hero
(10 posts, 3355 views) Posted: 3044d 22h, 46m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for a romance series with a feminine hero (either in looks or personality) like Pump Up, Pheromomania Syndrome, Kimi wa Girlfriend. Genderbender is good too like Tenshi ja nai, Penguin Revolution, or W-Juliet.
I have no idea why, but I love those ...
Read any good books lately
(96 posts, 9505 views) Posted: 3044d 22h, 52m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner.
Jane Austin's novels are definitely satirical although their romance. Orson Scott Card writes good and though-provoking sci-fi. I love the Honor Harrington series by David Weber (military sci-fi) because the main character is ...
Anyone into Spanish Music?
(26 posts, 2147 views) Posted: 3303d 3h, 48m ago by alusandrea in Music
I love the Colombian Latin Rock singer Juanes. I actually bought a couple of his CDs (a very rare and unusual act for someone as cheap as I am). My Spanish teacher made us listen to one of his songs (Camisa Negra); it wouldn't leave my head so I downlo ...
Appropriate Age for Pregnancy
(94 posts, 8544 views) Posted: 3324d 2h, 26m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
I don't know, but I think that I read somewhere that if you give birth after age 30 there is greater chance of having a child with Down Syndrome (this is not a fact I have any real evidence on, I just think I've seen it). ...
Election Day
(101 posts, 5567 views) Posted: 3327d 1h, 40m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
Whaaaat!! Obama won, first Black president. Yaaaaaaaaaa. At school tomorrow it is so going down. I go to a predominately Black school and I know its going to be interesting to see what happens tomorrow.

But moving on to the topic. I agree with most of Obam ...
Best citrus fruit?
(84 posts, 4839 views) Posted: 3454d 8h, 52m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
That's a hard decision. I like oranges, but tangerines are softer, easier to peal and often sweeter so I picked them. Grapefruits need sugar (I just had one last night) and lemons only are good in lemonade or with strawberries to me. ...
Strong Hero and Heroine
(14 posts, 6891 views) Posted: 3507d 22h, 40m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
I'm kind of tired of manga where either the guy is strong and the girl is weak or vice versa. I feel like reading a manga where the girl and guy are both bad***es (and don't die at the end). One of them can hide their strength, but they both have to be st ...

Favorite Type of Main Character
(9 posts, 1397 views) Posted: 3567d 4h, 49m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
The first type of manga I want is with a confident, always cool (even while being thrashed) hero/heroine who actually has a right to be confident, especially the ones that can say lines like, "I'm about to kill him," with a straight face.
The second typ ...
Manga with developing story/romance
(7 posts, 1672 views) Posted: 3567d 5h, 3m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
Katekyo Hitman Reborn. The first volumes it seems like a fun and games gag manga, but eventually the dark side of the Mafia world is revealed (it takes a while thought). I wouldn't call anything in this series real romance. ...
Shoujo Final!!! (Manga Tournament)
(63 posts, 7650 views) Posted: 3573d 7h, 11m ago by alusandrea in Shoujo/Josei
Actually, I've also read Skip Beat. The reason why I voted for Furuba is because it's actually finished. It may be overated, but I loved the series. Skip Beat is my favorite manga, but I had to vote for Furuba because the completeness left me fulfilled. ...
Certain Type of Shoujo Romance
(11 posts, 2066 views) Posted: 3597d 8h, 26m ago by alusandrea in I'm Looking For...
Can anyone recommend a shoujo where the heroine actually chooses and stays with the nice guy and not the hot, sexy, unstable one? I mean really, bad boys are good, but every once and a while I want to read a sweet romance where the girl chooses some ...
Are u considered smart?
(188 posts, 17031 views) Posted: 3599d 5h, 52m ago by alusandrea in Chatter Box
People consider me smart. I also took geometry in eighth grade (the highest class offered) and was a year ahead in every other core class. Right now I have the highest average at my school in my grade (to be honest though, my school is one of the worst in ...
How Do You Want Inuyasha To End? *contains spoilers*
(34 posts, 6281 views) Posted: 3614d 2h, 19m ago by alusandrea in Inu Yasha
I always thought Inuyasha would die and be reincarnated in Kagome's time (bowiing out with some sappy line like, "we'll always be together" or "I'll always be with you"), Kikyo would die and her soul would go back to Ka ...
