Age Difference Romances..why are some taboo? [Rant]
(10 posts, 1828 views) Posted: 598d 16h, 54m ago by evilcleo in Manga General
It largely depends on the character and their maturity. Personally, I'm okay with age differences of up to 10 years, but after that it enters the "they're old enough to be your dad/mom" or "what do you really have in common?" ...
Something That Made You Frown Today...

Realizing I'll spend the entire week volunteering. I need to be a professional with an income, not a professional volunteer. ...
Seriously brutal,violent, no morals manga
(12 posts, 3476 views) Posted: 693d 6h, 58m ago by evilcleo in I'm Looking For...
You didn't really say what genre so I'm gonna suggest Love prism (tohjoh asami). I'm sure the mangaka wanted to romantize the characters and what they do but it didn't work, short of a third character acting all preachy. It's jus ...
New Poll - Dystopia vs. Utopia
(36 posts, 3781 views) Posted: 698d 6h, 22m ago by evilcleo in News
Utopia. Sure, I know it won't be a true "utopia" but seeing the betrayal, getting to see what the truth really is, and all that plot development can make a great series. Besides, dystopia systems usually somehow end up with women becoming an enda ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 22299 views) Posted: 707d 17h, 9m ago by evilcleo in News
The argument is down to a fictional vs real life argument whether it is rape or shota/loli. It's common on yaoi series all the time. All these anonymous posts like "rape is horrible. Why do we tolerate it in a story?" No yaoi readers actually think rap ...
New Poll - Manga App
(38 posts, 3609 views) Posted: 716d 7h, 16m ago by evilcleo in News
I use my tablet or computer. I have enough trouble keeping my battery available as it is. To add an app that will just drain it so much faster...I'd rather just wait until I get home and get on my tablet. The screen is too small anyway. ...
Naruto to be ending in 5 chapters
(39 posts, 6425 views) Posted: 719d 7h, 32m ago by evilcleo in Naruto
Naruto is obviously the main character. And Sakura's feelings were consistent. Sakura never saw him, or anyone else, romantically except Sasuke. She did indicate that in a chapter but she was obviously exaggerating just to get Naruto to come back. She ...
Shoujo/Josei that you can't bring yourself to finish
(24 posts, 4345 views) Posted: 719d 7h, 47m ago by evilcleo in Shoujo/Josei
I'm having issues finishing W Juliet. It wouldn't have lagged and gotten so repetitive in the middle if the main character didn't find out the cross dressing secret half way into the first chapter. It's good I never planned on reading the sequel. T ...
big & small
(2 posts, 444 views) Posted: 719d 8h, 3m ago by evilcleo in Yaoi/Yuri
Ikegami and Kishitani from G-defend. They aren't the main couple but the size difference (not just in height) are pretty obvious. ...
Naruto to be ending in 5 chapters
(39 posts, 6425 views) Posted: 719d 8h, 39m ago by evilcleo in Naruto
Naruto is one of those mangas that romance has no place in but because the fanbase pushed the mangaka, magazine, and editors with heavy expectations, they kind of had to add it in. And goodness knows the crap he'd get if he put in an open ending of wh ...
Female gamers..
(284 posts, 27213 views) Posted: 849d 5h, 56m ago by evilcleo in Games
I don't play games but there's no reason to suspect that I'd be bad at it because I am a girl either. It's just hard for me to play with the keys and commands, while watching the screen. Although, goodness knows I like watching people play ...
Can men and women truly be friends?
(31 posts, 2697 views) Posted: 849d 6h, 13m ago by evilcleo in Adult (18+)
I don't see why not. I mean, I'm in a male dominated field and when I was in school there was always 2-3 females and 8 males every year. I mean, one or two couples formed but for the most part, both sides couldn't see the others as "fem ...
Does anyone else here dislike Bleach and Naruto like I do?
(181 posts, 28403 views) Posted: 849d 6h, 46m ago by evilcleo in Shounen/Seinen
I have to admit, naruto was interesting in the beginning, and when I was younger. Now that Naruto is ending, the fans have gone crazy. I've read so many "uh, get to the point already" comments. The mangaka has been doing that for the last 650+ ...
New Poll - Checking Releases
(27 posts, 2734 views) Posted: 849d 7h, 54m ago by evilcleo in News
Well, that's just as much a problem for me. Most titles don't mean anything, I need to see the pictures to jog my memory. I read a lot of mangas that go across a variety of genres. It has to be a really great or really bad manga for it to stick. ...
New Poll - Checking Releases
(27 posts, 2734 views) Posted: 849d 8h, 22m ago by evilcleo in News
I don't really get why mangaupdates is rated so high, in terms of new release indications anyway. I mean, I read so many short ongoing mangas, I can remember a couple titles but generally to remember ALL their titles and search for every single ...
Are manga below a certain score ever good?
(18 posts, 1478 views) Posted: 868d 5h, 53m ago by evilcleo in Manga General
I still give it a benefit of the doubt. People can be really petty. I've read many comments on manga where the person says "I gave up after page 3." And people can be really harsh on things like love triangles. There are so many people who says ...
Girls, what do you think about female characters with XXL boobs?
(81 posts, 13719 views) Posted: 868d 6h, 41m ago by evilcleo in Manga General
Honestly, if I come across these characters, I just move on because it'll become extremely ecchi or become a joke that isn't funny the 10th time. I mean, maybe girls shouldn't be flat but if they're bigger than her head, it's just unne ...
(162 posts, 21033 views) Posted: 868d 7h, 5m ago by evilcleo in Chatter Box
That's the problem I'm finding, at least where I live. I mean, it's a hard case to go against the muslim religion in the Middle East where women are considered to be more like property than individuals but here, it shouldn't be a big deal. Most ...
New Poll - Physical Manga
(27 posts, 2342 views) Posted: 868d 7h, 44m ago by evilcleo in News
Well, I'm by no means a collector but I do have a lot. I haven't counted but maybe 75-100? Most of my collection contains 5 volume manga or so and I'm picky on ones I deem "buy worthy" so it's not as huge as it could be. And ...
What "flickered" your "BL/GL light"? :D
(31 posts, 3159 views) Posted: 880d 11h, 28m ago by evilcleo in Yaoi/Yuri
That was a pretty bad yaoi to start with. I read that a year or so after reading yaoi so it didn't bother me too much but it really did take yaoi cliches and push them to the extreme. The S&M definitely bordered on torture in those last couple chapters. That ...
Manga that stays with you FOREVER
(27 posts, 2731 views) Posted: 885d 17h, 52m ago by evilcleo in I'm Looking For...
I think a person's first manga will stay with you forever. My first was rave master and now that I've been reading manga for 10 years, it probably has a lot of flaws but in my mind it'll always be perfect. ...
New Poll - Anime Diverges
(20 posts, 1870 views) Posted: 885d 18h, 20m ago by evilcleo in News
I don't mind as long as the story is still good. I mean, elemental gelade diverged quite a bit from the manga but the animation was good, there was nice character and story development, and the battle scenes were entertaining. I can't say the same for ...
New Poll - Sailor Moon
(37 posts, 3134 views) Posted: 888d 14h, 6m ago by evilcleo in News
Sometimes that makes a difference. Cardcaptor Sakura was definitely better when I tried the Japanese version. Well, I still can't take the main characters' love story seriously because they're too young but the true relationship between Yukito ...
(162 posts, 21033 views) Posted: 888d 14h, 23m ago by evilcleo in Chatter Box
Well, I'm against polygamy for sure. I don't necessarily think it should be between two people but I do have an issue with the unfairness of it. I mean, if it is acceptable for guys to have multiple wives, women should have the same right. And the whole " ...
New Poll - Sailor Moon
(37 posts, 3134 views) Posted: 891d 10h, 48m ago by evilcleo in News
I dunno about that. You may still like it but I've known many people who go back and watch it, ending up saying "what did I like about that show?" I'm one of them. I always liked Sailor Mercury though. At least one of them has a good head on ...
