Sexism in manga
(47 posts, 1903 views) Posted: 5d 14h, 42m 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
(10 posts, 439 views) Posted: 5d 16h, 18m 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
(47 posts, 1903 views) Posted: 6d 2h, 11m 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
(22 posts, 1156 views) Posted: 7d 2h, 19m ago by train93 in I'm Looking For...
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, 632 views) Posted: 10d 23h, 24m 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, 327 views) Posted: 13d 22h, 24m 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, 327 views) Posted: 16d 2h, 39m 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 ...
When was the last time you sat down and read a book?

The thriller my sister wrote! It was really interesting and unpredictable, I hope it will get published someday, it deserves it. ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 1459 views) Posted: 17d 20h, 25m 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 ...

Hi! I'm looking for manga which have some of the traits I liked in Butter!!!, especially:

-Character-driven plot
-Not excessive drama
-Well balanced cast of male and females characters
-A manga that wouldn't be out of place either in shounen/seinen mag ...

Deadman Wonderland isn't that youth friendly, but it's still a shounen. ...
Characters that get along

Female lead:

Ojojojo: While the MC (female) is a tsundere type, there is never any actual conflict and she always gets along perfectly with her love interest

Yandere Kanojo is the same, with a yankee tsundere as protagonist who gets along with the male lead

New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2401 views) Posted: 57d 21h, 10m ago by train93 in News
It's written in the first post that this poll has already been done in a negative form (as in which one you don't like); in my opinion the sexual orientation has a lot to do with it, because as you have written most of these manga have an erotic focus, which e ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2401 views) Posted: 59d 17h, 30m ago by train93 in News
I'm male and I prefer neither. That's because being heterosexual, I like heterosexual romance because I subconsciously project my own wish fulfilment upon the fictional couple; it's the same reason (and at the same time it isn't, but it wou ...

Quote from tgirl
The OP blew me away. I didn't know what Nadia's JP OP sounded like at that time, but the Italian version was soooooooo catchy/beautiful. I wished there was a full version of this song even to this very day. ;__;

The Crystal and Platina arcs in Pokémon Special qualify.
Remnant too, if I'm not wrong.

They do it commonly in Italy.

Not an easy task, let's see...

Quote from Lorska
afaik on this site:
1) all demographics are treated as mutually exclusive
2) it takes the latest available demographic




Not entirely true, an example being 1/2 Prince, which is tagged both as Shoujo and Shounen, so I don't know if this rule is set ...
