|shoujo with a sweet 'prince type' guy (like Ouran)
(9 posts, 2448 views) Posted: 953d 15h, 44m ago by tsuyutonamida in I'm Looking For...
While the first part does tie into what a princely male lead typically is. I think the second part of the user's post is what she is looking for.
I want some shoujo manga in which there is a guy of this type who's also sweet--and wins the roma ...

|New Poll - Unwanted Pairing
(38 posts, 5361 views) Posted: 1038d 7h, 42m ago by tsuyutonamida in News
I think it really depends on the genre. For instance, if there was a romantic pairing in a manga like Hikaru no Go (haven't finished the series yet, so I don't know if there is) I wouldn't really care because romance is not the main focus. In a series ...

I know that there are a lot of stories about detectives out there, but I was wondering if there are any ones that have other cases besides homicides. I'd like it to focus on other units (missing person, abuse, etc.) to see how the manga-ka would choose to hand ...

(124 posts, 14685 views) Posted: 1106d 7h, 15m ago by tsuyutonamida in Shoujo/Josei
Androgynous characters or normal ones.
Female: intelligent, sympathetic, but not a doormat. Strong, comfortable in her own skin, isn't a crybaby, and able to handle situations without always needing the guy's help. Her whole life doesn't revolve ...

The normal girl and normal boy
The married couple
Friends become lovers (Not big on the childhood friends becoming loves, though)
The live-in lover is nice, too, but I don't really like the step siblings become lovers. It's less complicated if the person wh ...
|Manhwa or Manga?
(65 posts, 7823 views) Posted: 1106d 7h, 56m ago by tsuyutonamida in Shoujo/Josei
Manga. The leads in manhwa always seem too loud mouthed and self-centered and none too bright. But I'm a little biased since my exposure to manhwa is relatively limited. ...

|In shojos with love triangle, do you like the nice guy who loses more?
(3 posts, 682 views) Posted: 1106d 8h, 22m ago by tsuyutonamida in Shoujo/Josei
In the love triangles where it's the bad boy against the nice guy, I tend to root for the nice guy. The only problem is that the writers do all they can to give the bad boy a leg up, so the nice guy usually ends up as an underdeveloped character with little to no bac ...
|Why do you not read Shoujo Manga
(72 posts, 10147 views) Posted: 1106d 8h, 30m ago by tsuyutonamida in Shoujo/Josei
I do primarily read shoujo manga, but I have to spend a lot of time finding one that is worth reading. The reasons are: too many cliches and stock characters, the main character is usually an incredibly whiny, self-absorbed person, the love interest is perfect in ever ...
