Have you tried Basara? No supernatural powers involved, just the effective use of allies and some daring tactics. Strategy isn't really a focus of the manga, but a large component of it is about gathering enough allies to overthrow the corrupt royalty of wha ...

When it comes to background art in manga, you prefer...
-Lots of detail! Feels as if you're immersed in the world
-Just enough so you know where the characters are at/ what's going on
-Little to no detail (easier to focus on current actions)

I chose other animal, that animal being a phoenix.
They've always been one of my favorite mystical beasts. <3
I almost chose "walk" because that sounds so... nonchalant and badass. XD
Too bad that doesn't really fit my image. ...

When you say "it will be made for you", does it mean you will die, or one of the other two people will die?
Lose-lose situation either way, but the first scenario would make the choice more difficult (since refusing to make a decision would be practically su ...

Never got around to viewing the results, but I read through some of the arguments.

Wow, even after learning about game theory in economics, I can't believe "yes" is in the majority.
You people... suck.
I'd be a bit less incredulous if the amount was 100k or so, but... it's only 10 grand.

|Shoujo with "shounenish" feel

I thought it was a shounen until I read the genres. xD
I also recommend Ore Monogatari!! if you're into romance. It follows the perspective of the guy, who is rather... lackluster in appearance, compared to the sparkly anomalies who tend to p ...

Is it just me or did Naruto look especially adorable in this chapter?
Anyways, I loved the development! Hinata spoke up to Naruto while staying in character, props to Kishimoto for that. I have to admit that I almost face-palmed when she commented on Naruto' ...
|What makes you want to read and continue a manga?
(2 posts, 314 views) Posted: 468d 20h, 1m ago by Calamansi in Manga General
Well, first the manga has to be good. I can't stand annoying protagonists and cliche plots. If there's some big mystery or final destination that shows hope of being resolved later in a manga, I'll continue reading it because that kind of stuff keeps ...

I've always pronounced anime, as you say, the "American" way. It's always sounded best, because it's like a shortened form of "animation", and even people who aren't into anime know what I'm talking a ...

|What shoujo manga should be made into an anime?
(278 posts, 36088 views) Posted: 519d 23h, 27m ago by Calamansi in Shoujo/Josei
Something with action like Immortal Rain, Replica, or Masca (which I know is a manwha but I can dream, right?).
The style they're drawn in is already pretty fluid, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything when I read them. And I can't w ...
|Have you ever cried at an anime/manga..?
(717 posts, 76091 views) Posted: 523d 0h, 1m ago by Calamansi in Chatter Box
Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari made me cry for over five minutes until I calmed down. The noisy kind of sobbing too, not a silent watering of the eyes like normal. D:
Naruto made me cry twice...

(3 posts, 696 views) Posted: 525d 18h, 24m ago by Calamansi in Immortal Rain
I agree with Alaena, it's definitely worth the read in spite of the iffy tag. I think the companion series Touhou Shinigami is more deserving of being labeled as a tragedy, but it's still really sweet. ...

|Shoujo or Josei?
(107 posts, 9954 views) Posted: 536d 18h, 46m ago by Calamansi in Shoujo/Josei
Honestly it depends on the author. Basara and 7 Seeds, shoujo and josei respectively, are two of my favorite manga and are written by the same author. I've loved and hated titles from both genres. Most of the hate is geared towards cliches like "plain ...
