why is it always the same guy?
(6 posts, 433 views) Posted: 15d 15h, 35m ago by train93 in Shoujo/Josei
Harem is the problem here. You will hardly find any attempt at characters' depth in a harem manga. They're here only to fit their type. And as LettuceGarden said, the tsundere type is the most popular, hence your winner in both shounen and shoujo m ...
New Poll - Dropping a Series
(25 posts, 1068 views) Posted: 18d 6h, 20m ago by train93 in News
I picked "Too many unlikable characters", but the truth is that I probably won't drop a series because of that. The only reason that would make me drop a series for real is bad translation (as in a lot of grammar mistakes and confusing sentences ...
French or Italian to English translator.

Are you still looking for an Italian to English translator? If the answer is yes then I could help, but I'd like to know which projects we're talking about before deciding. ...
Forgotten one-shot
(2 posts, 330 views) Posted: 47d 15h, 18m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
That's the one, thank you! I would have never found it, since it has three chapters and it's not a simple one-shot. ...
Forgotten one-shot
(2 posts, 330 views) Posted: 48d 2h, 7m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
I'm searching for a one-shot I read a couple of years ago. It was about this girl looking for an apartment; she finds one, but the boy she has to live with imposes a weird condition: she'll have to pay less, but in exchange she must occasionally pose nude ...
Little sister without romantic delusions
(12 posts, 839 views) Posted: 52d 11h, 47m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
I see your reasoning and I agree, but still why use this kind of character at all, then. Why just not add another unrelated female character for the fanservice and the romcom? And I'm sure there would be a lot of comedy opportunities between normal sibling ...

Little sister without romantic delusions
(12 posts, 839 views) Posted: 56d 13h, 51m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
I honestly don't get what's the deal with manga and anime's obsession with little sisters. Anyway, whenever the "imouto" character appears in a story, you can be sure she'll be lusting after her older brother (and sometimes ...
Sexism in manga
(60 posts, 4500 views) Posted: 64d 2h, 20m ago by train93 in Manga General
The manga that you mentioned are all clearly directed at males, so I think it's actually more a sort of fetish than real double standards ...
Guy in a harem-like environment but not actually have a harem
(12 posts, 817 views) Posted: 64d 3h, 55m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
I'm not sure I understood your request, since your example is tagged as harem.
Are you searching for the typical harem setting (one guy and many girls around him), without a harem actually taking place (meaning the girls are not romantically interested in t ...
Sexism in manga
(60 posts, 4500 views) Posted: 64d 13h, 49m ago by train93 in Manga General
As many people have already said, the main problem lies in the fact that Japan holds different values in respect of those of the western countries. Which means that while we can disagree on their point of view on sexism and other things, there's not much w ...
Please renew my faith in manga

Yep, FMA sets way too high standards XD
Here are some manga that I liked:

Ongoing:
Pandora Hearts A shounen with a bit of shoujo art about a fantasy world and a boy who has formed a deadly contract with a rabbit-girl monster: this synopsis sounds stupid and g ...
New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 1051 views) Posted: 69d 11h, 1m ago by train93 in News
The "bits and pieces from anime / manga" option is popular, because it is picked either by people who don't feel confident enough in their Japanese to choose the "I know the basics" option, and by people who know just a couple of w ...
Request about how updates are listed
(7 posts, 433 views) Posted: 72d 10h, 1m ago by train93 in Suggestions & Bugs
Yeah, I'm sure he already does that. This is not the problem he's talking about. It's not you being sleepy, it's me struggling with the English language when details become important in order to explain clearly a matter. Please bear with me ...
Request about how updates are listed
(7 posts, 433 views) Posted: 74d 14h, 16m ago by train93 in Suggestions & Bugs
No. He's saying that he keeps track of many manga that he's not reading yet (for example he might use another list for it), but he isn't able to update every single one to the last chapter released because of sheer numbers. So it happens that so ...

New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 2253 views) Posted: 76d 8h, 2m ago by train93 in News
You can like both, but the poll asks you to choose the one you prefer. So ask yourself, if you were to choose a romance manga to bring on a desert island, would it be of the same sex or boy/girl type? XD ...
