Scarlet Begonias by Sublime.
Pretty much been listening to 40 Oz. to Freedom since the weekend. :x ...

Seconding Subarashii Sekai. It's pretty good. ...
|Best manga you've read recently

Seconding Udon no Onna. Exactly what OP's looking for. ...

Udon no Hito was just recently released and it's probably the best short work I've read in a while. You should try it if you haven't done so yet.
Heh, totally missed the "long manga" part. Anyway, I'd recommend Naoki Ura ...
|Sexy, a bit mature, and quirky romance
(7 posts, 1551 views) Posted: 792d 16h, 15m ago by yui-kun in I'm Looking For...
It's not very similar to the manga that you mentioned, but Sukimasuki is an enjoyable romance with really quirky characters. ...
|Realistically Drawn Manga

Doctor Du Ming has a very well-rendered realistic art style, and an excellent story, to boot. ...

Seconding the Naoki Urasawa recommendation. 20th Century Boys and Monster kept me glued, and it's no joke as each of them go beyond 15 volumes.
For shoujo series, I think Oboreru Knife pretty much smashes many cliches of school-girl love stories. ...
|J or K Drama recommendations?
(8 posts, 894 views) Posted: 794d 2h, 2m ago by yui-kun in Chatter Box
Quote from ponbiki
anything with Nakama Yukie would be a safe bet. Try to watch Trick 1-3 (and the specials and movies) if you haven't already. Anything with Kimura Takuya is bound to get high ratings and be extremely good as well. Yamashita Tomohisa ...

I recommend Toyoda Tetsuya's Under Current. Or Aono Shunju's Ore wa Mada Honki Dashitenai Dake, published in English as I'll Give It My All... Tomorrow. You might want to sample an extra chapter off that, Ikiru, which has been scanlated b ...
|has the list layout changed?

Quote from uTP226
The additional information can be useful. However, the extra spacing between titles seems wasteful to me. So just a wider column for User Rating would suffice, I presume?
Seconding this. ...
|Long-running high school shoujo romance

Seconding Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. You might also want to check out Parfait Tic even if it hasn't been completely scanlated. The first 11 volumes are good and but it goes downhill from there. Heh. ...
|Have you ever been fired? How did you recover?
(14 posts, 1040 views) Posted: 802d 7h, 7m ago by yui-kun in Chatter Box
I've never been fired from a job (more than seven years of work experience spent in four different companies), but I once did come close to offering my resignation because of a very serious situation. If you have another tub of ice cream, consider sharin ...
|M-U, restore my faith in shojo manga
(17 posts, 2951 views) Posted: 818d 0h, 42m ago by yui-kun in I'm Looking For...
Here are some shoujo titles that are somewhat a break from the mold:
- Coelacanth - A psychological mystery with very subtle romance.
- Aozora Yell - About a girl who joins a brass band to fulfill her dream of cheering for the baseball team when they reach th ...
|Need great crude comedy
(9 posts, 863 views) Posted: 818d 6h, 22m ago by yui-kun in I'm Looking For...
Crude humor (or at least these aren't the definition of 'good, clean fun'):
The Family Zoo - A one-shot that has elicited some interesting comments from people who dared read it. xD
Boku to Issho - Someone reviewed this as an "off the wa ...
|I'd like to join a group
(2 posts, 359 views) Posted: 820d 4h, 11m ago by yui-kun in Recruitment
I'm sure there are a lot of groups that are willing to put newbies under their wing, even if it's only for the summer (hopefully longer). What kind of manga do you enjoy reading most? My advice is to check out the recruitment pages of the groups that sc ...
|Somebody.. recruit me..
(4 posts, 418 views) Posted: 820d 13h, 10m ago by yui-kun in Recruitment
I think it'd help if you also specified what kind of manga you'd be interested in working on. A project I typeset for has some hard redraws, but I don't know if it falls under your interest (it's shounen, btw). Anyways, will send you a PM. ...
(7 posts, 1900 views) Posted: 821d 23h, 42m ago by yui-kun in Adult (18+)
How about H? I'm not sure if it's up to par with the kind of art you are looking for, but it's a good story, just a bit angsty and slow in progress. I'd like to recommend more but they're single-volume works/one-shots. ...

Hana Yori Dango by Yoko Kamio. Good times. ...

These are pretty good oneshots/single-volume shoujo romance, imo:
Hotarubi no Mori E
Kimi no Kachi
|New Poll - Known Languages

I'm currently learning Spanish (which would be my third language if I ever will be proficient at it) and I find it a bit difficult. I guess being in my late 20's also makes it more challenging (heh). On the upside, I'm more serious than when I was younger ...
|Looking through raws even if you can't read?
(17 posts, 1241 views) Posted: 859d 2h, 36m ago by yui-kun in Manga General
I've done this with a couple of manga. One was Slam Dunk; I bought the Chinese raws and proceeded to look at the pictures because I wanted to know what events would happen after the anime. It wasn't so bad, as the drawings pretty much gave me ...
|Download or read online?
(85 posts, 6912 views) Posted: 860d 4h, 49m ago by yui-kun in Manga General
I prefer downloading the manga that I read, and it's usually IRC or direct downloads. I'm a bit old-fashioned and this has been the way I've leeched for almost a decade, years before I even owned a PC. xD I like saving the files so I can read it ag ...
