Everything by Yuki Kaori, probably anything by Mihara Mitsukazu (I've read DOLL, Embalmer, and Dokuhime, all are dark/gothic). Also recommend Petshop of Horrors. ...
|New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 7820 views) Posted: 66d 12h, 24m ago by yarn in News
My least favorite is the scenario where a girl tries to thank a guy for helping her by offering to have sex with him. It happens all the time in manga. I've never heard of a real girl considering sex to be a thank-you gift.
Also, since you guys like talking about " ...

I probably buy an average of 2-3 new manga volumes per month, and used manga whenever I see something I like that's a good deal. I probably have about 300 volumes by now. I don't buy a whole lot digitally because I have yet to see an official elec ...

1) Do you have life insurance and why?
No - I'm self-employed and am not getting enough income yet to justify the cost.
2) What would make you want to get life insurance?
If I had a dependent, or some great cause that I thought would benefit from the payou ...

Guys, guys, guys, you're coming at this all wrong.
The common English pronunciation is moot, since it isn't an English word in the first place.
"Magus" (the singular Latin form) is a word meaning "magician" or "sorcerer." ...

I guess it just depends. Translation-wise, I hear the most complaints regarding josei. I suppose seinen would be equally hard in that regard. But here, I hear a lot of complaints about shoujo, and I can imagine that's true, with all the vague screentones and spa ...

I usually find them REALLY annoying, especially if they're supposed to be cute. Don't get me wrong, I love real-life cute animals. But these guys grate on my nerves.
I vote for #4, since they're tolerable if they actually do something. But if they ...

I would vote for Takuto and Sugata from Star Driver (anime; I think only one chapter of the manga version was ever translated)
And Hakkenden seems pretty steeped in it (at least the anime was; I'm waaaay behind on the manga). ...

I second Eitoku on Pupa. It's got a brother and sister who are abused by their dad.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And then the sister regularly eats him; though it's "consensual."
Another maybe is a oneshot that was printed with Flower in a ...

Print dj's have a goal of being printed, which gives the creators incentive to do a really good job - because if you don't, then they won't sell and you can't recoup your printing costs.

According to the results so far... there are about 3x more open-minded girls than boys.
I voted for "girl who reads both." Not that I particularly seek out GL series, but neither am I avoidant of it, and will read the occasional shoujo-ai. ...
