Developed Side Cast
(6 posts, 245 views) Posted: 1d 18h, 41m ago by Calamansi in I'm Looking For...
I second 7 Seeds. Among all the manga I've read, it has the best-developed side cast. Basara, another work by the same author, also has great character development, though not to the same extent as 7 Seeds. However, since it's completed, I can c ...
New Poll - In a Fantasy World
(30 posts, 450 views) Posted: 3d 21h, 5m ago by Calamansi in News
Learn magic. Every fantasy world is sure to have its fair share of overpowered jerks, right? Rather than live my life cowering in fear, I'd want to learn how to defend myself.

Too bad, "Find a hot humanoid lover" isn't an option. laugh I'm ...
Best Shounen

Ooh, I'm glad this thread was revived.

Best of all time: Hunter x Hunter. I considered putting this into "currently running" but... yeah. Honestly it's my favorite even among those I've completed, so it doesn't matter. For me, shoune ...

Seeing as MU polls barely push 20,000 votes, I think you have a very narrow view on demographics.


And I think you're confused - I was still referring to manga demographics in the quoted text. I don't see why you brought up the whole 20,000 vote ...

So are you or are you not a mind reader?


Clarification: I cannot translate non-committal grunts. However, like you, I am capable of making assumptions. If I was false in doing so, feel free to tell me.

So are you making overarching statements or not?

You believe citing a Western poll is meaningless? Even though the poll I'm citing is the one we're currently discussing? It's only natural to reference it, since it's the topic. I don't see ...

Yes, it was a "fair statement" because it was broad, vague statement. What do you consider "Western"? By some standards, Japan is a "Western" country yet Japan is the same country where there are women-only tra ...

Interesting request. The person you've described reminds me of a couple of Miyazaki heroines. I believe Nausicaa has a manga, so you can go check that out. There's a page for it on the site called Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä.

Because theres no point in comparing Western gender expectations in something that was originally designed for Japanese audiences. All it does is reveal the fact that you're an ignorant fool. For all you know, MU might have had a massive influx of m ...
New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 1057 views) Posted: 10d 12h, 42m ago by Calamansi in News
I went for rapture/ hell on earth. In times of need, at least people can look forward to the afterlife as being a blissful nothingness or something "better". Suffering while knowing that suffering may as well last an eternity is just depressing to think about.

Yeah, my previous two posts were in reference to the original question. I'm typically against neutral options as long as the question is worded in a flexible enough manner.

To respond to the actual poll, nowadays I read shoujo the least, though back when I fir ...

Assuming people don't lie/rig the polls in huge numbers, Mangaupdates has a 50/50 male/female demographic.

If anything, it probably has to do with the fact that shounen and seinen stories are (generally speaking) "gender-ne ...

Ugh, terrible poll. As several have said before, "hate" is a loaded word. If I were to list my top 10 favorite manga, it would have representation from all four of the choices listed. Glad to know many of the users here aren't totally biased against a ...
Top 5 Mangaka

5.Ozaki Kaori - She's improved a lot as both an artist and a writer. Immortal Rain was one of the first manga to make me cry. I really wish more of her work was translated.
4.Asano Inio Very creative. A lot of his characters just feel "real". His ...

Real and Berserk immediately come to mind. Neither of them, especially the former, follow the template you described. I've become disenchanted with Berserk over the years but Real is still one of my favorites. Plus, Inoue's art is amazing.

Most memorable moment of the series?

When Naruto found out about Jiraiya's death.
Couldn't hold in the tears when the popsicle scene was referenced. ;_; I really started to feel for him as a main character then (before it was mainly the side characters and villains that kept me interested). ...
Ore Monogatari gets anime!

Funny, I was thinking about various shoujos that could get an anime the other day and this one came to mind. But then I was like "Nahh, they only want to showcase the manic depressive pretty boys."

Glad to see I was wrong! The hype is real. ...

Cats or Dogs?

Definitely prefer cats. I've never come across one I haven't liked. They all have such interesting personalities, and can be pretty hilarious, especially when it comes to their pride. Also, they're super soft and cuddly! I love chilling with mine after a ...

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 ...
