|Manga where the protagonist betrays everyone?
(5 posts, 498 views) Posted: 5d 1h, 7m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
From what I remember Cavalier of the Abyss has this. You have to read the prequel first to understand what's going on though and even then, it's confusing for the first several chapters. ...
|Character Taken Captive After Loss
(14 posts, 744 views) Posted: 77d 20h, 59m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
Akame ga Kill! has elements of this. The protagonist is captured by the enemy faction in one mini-arc but the circumstances of the capture aren't necessarily tragic. In fact it was almost comedic although certainly dangerous for the hero. He does have a tr ...
|Online Multiplayer PC Games to Play With Friends
(10 posts, 955 views) Posted: 514d 11h, 23m ago by shade449 in Games
Guys the OP is looking for games that don't require any installation, ie browser games.
My friends went through a phase several years ago where we would play Crazy Arcade everyday. It's basically a flash Korean Bomberman. I don't remem ...
|long ,good and big story completely scanlated manga
(5 posts, 631 views) Posted: 650d 22h, 7m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
I'll second Hoshi no Samidare, it's a great one.
Akira: Not sure if this is all available online but it should be easy enough to find at any bookstore that sells manga
Ping Pong: Obviously not epic in scope as the three mentioned in the OP but still amazing
|Magic the Gathering
(13 posts, 950 views) Posted: 703d 8h, 4m ago by shade449 in Games
I'm a long time (10+ years) on and off Magic player. It's definitely a fun game and every time I quit the game I seem to come back after a few years.
I highly recommend drafting, it's a great way to play games while obtaining cards. Much better ...
|Reading the rhythm of the opponent
(9 posts, 696 views) Posted: 809d 19h, 13m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
Knight Run has this. It doesn't seem like it in the beginning but in the latest couple of chapters you learn more about the fighting style of the heroine and how she reads her opponents' tune. ...

Droid X. Using it to type this actually. ...
|Boa Hancock as the new crew member?
(36 posts, 9744 views) Posted: 1459d 23h, 32m ago by shade449 in One Piece
I think she could join. A lot of you guys are over thinking this.
If Oda wanted to make Boa a crew member he could do it easily. Something as simple as the government destroying Amazon Island to get revenge on Boa for helping Luffy would supply the motivation fo ...
|a manga with characters growing up...
(9 posts, 2803 views) Posted: 1598d 19h, 44m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
I highly recommend D-ASH
It's exactly what you're looking for (start out as kids, grow up, romance). It's bittersweet to a degree and seinen, not shounen, but it's very, very good. ...

|Most Un-cliche mangas ever
(30 posts, 4961 views) Posted: 1665d 16h, 43m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
No one's mentioned Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer yet?
Try it, it's great. One of the only manga that's completely surprised me. Most manga that have surprised me, I at least expected to be surprised given the nature of the story. This one thou ...
|Shoujo Romance Where the Girl is Smarter, Calmer, Stronger, Better-Looking or Cooler than the Guy

Quote from amaranthine
But you have to notice the different goals between shoujo and shounen protagonists. You're right that while they both generally start out as average or below average in looks or strength or intelligence or whatnot, only the shounen ...

It would help if you made your lists public, otherwise we have no idea what you have and haven't read. The series you've listed seem to be action-oriented shounen with varying degrees of humor but then you say not like Naruto/Bleach/One Piece all ...
|Characters that "fake smile"
(22 posts, 3227 views) Posted: 1683d 0h, 1m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
The main character of Kure-nai has been told he has a fake smile a few times. ...

Oddly enough, the first instance of cultural shock I've had was in the US and I've lived here all my life.
It was in sixth grade on a week long field trip - for the first time in my life I had to use a fork and knife. I had used forks before (rarely) and knives as w ...
|"Otaku" Girl on American Idol >>;
(44 posts, 4945 views) Posted: 1684d 23h, 9m ago by shade449 in Chatter Box
This definitely made me cringe.
Then again, 95% of what I've seen on American Idol (admittedly, not alot) makes me cringe, so nothing new.
Nothing to be ashamed about though, she's just like all the other anime geeks in thousands of high schools eve ...
|protagonist has to adjust to high school
(9 posts, 1290 views) Posted: 1690d 20h, 28m ago by shade449 in I'm Looking For...
Devil Devil kinda fits. About a powerful devil that ends up stuck in the body of a weak teenager for some reason (forgot why, finished the manga a loooong time ago). The devil has to adjust to life as a high (middle?) school-er while fighting off other devils and angels ...

Depends on how much money. ...
(24 posts, 5139 views) Posted: 1692d 5h, 6m ago by shade449 in Hikaru no Go
I disliked the ending at first but the more I thought about it, the more I grew to appreciate it. I really liked Sai and his final death still remains one of the saddest things I've seen in manga. After re-reading the manga later though, it became obvious that he had tau ...

Well, I just updated my Opera to 10.01 and I have to say, Im liking the new Opera Turbo option. I haven't been able to see if it's anymore stable but if it is, I might not switch to Chrome afterall. ...
|Which browser do you like best???
(273 posts, 19037 views) Posted: 1743d 23h, 45m ago by shade449 in Chatter Box
Opera at home, Chrome at work. When Google comes out with Chrome for Macs, I'll probably switch. I've used Opera for years but the mouse gestures are fairly useless to me since I don't use a mouse much anymore and the long startup tim ...

Thanks for the quick replies guys. The answer is indeed Vocaloid, although I could've sworn I've seen a guy just like that in a manga. Oh well, I'm sure if I have, I'll remember it eventually. ...

Hey guys, I've been catching up on Onidere lately and Sexyboi Scan's credit page has been driving me nuts. The characters seem so familiar but I can't quite figure out what their from. Here's the picture:

Firstly, about Greece and Rome. Neither had a strict moral code in the sense of Christianity and Islam. However, every city had a set of principles that was heavily defined by the god they chose to worship. For example, Athens worshiped Athena heavily a ...
