Shoujo/Josei Manga with Shounen Art?
(10 posts, 474 views) Posted: 55d 13h, 51m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
I second Meteor Methuselah like burning. Especially after the first couple of volumes, when the artist really comes into her own style. The story reads a little like a shounen, what with the interesting and complex plot, but the romance is great. Very, very much worth ...
Do Japanese bathrooms have no locks?
(3 posts, 306 views) Posted: 61d 8h, 54m ago by Alaena Night in Manga General
I'm living in Japan right now, but not in a traditional house: just an apartment. However, none of the doors have locks (except for the front door). This probably has a lot do do with the fact that many of them are sliding doors. Not sure about real houses, though ...
Best manga to learn Japanese with?
(9 posts, 656 views) Posted: 149d 15h, 35m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
I've never worried about making decks in Anki before, either. I found downloadable JLPT vocab decks on this site. If you want to focus solely on learning vocab, Anki is okay. MemRise is a lot simpler, and it can be fun. It drills you on meaning, kanji recognitio ...
Best manga to learn Japanese with?
(9 posts, 656 views) Posted: 149d 17h, 2m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
A really good one, or so I've heard, is Yotsubato! The language is very simple and also largely everyday vocabulary.

That aside, though, so long as you have a grasp of hiragana and katakana, I'd suggest getting something you really love (preferably ...
What song are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Ever heard of the show Supernatural? =D
(51 posts, 2989 views) Posted: 211d 4h, 23m ago by Alaena Night in Chatter Box
I watched the pilot episode several months back at the recommendation of I-no-longer-remember-who, and was thoroughly unimpressed. It all felt horribly contrived and not-funny. Cue long months of me forgetting it existed.

Then, alone and far, far from home on Ch ...
What do you want to eat right NOW?

Right now, I am living and working in Japan.

It's great, but I would trade my right arm for REAL MEXICAN FOOD. ...
specific storyline/s
(11 posts, 590 views) Posted: 307d 6h, 20m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
Red River is a classic example of the "special" heroine being pursued by people with nefarious purposes. Don't let the fact that it's a little on the older side keep you from reading. It's definitely worth the read. It is a shining star of the ...
any manga with only hiragana?
(4 posts, 947 views) Posted: 467d 21h, 17m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
@ Madmanfreak: Good luck with your learning! Like all the other responders so far, I would suggest reading something with furigana. Because the furigana (which are almost always written in hiragana but in some rare cases can be in katakana or even other kan ...

Right now?

Ramen noodles.

No, not the awesome kind. The ridiculously salty, bad-for-you WalMart kind. I don't know why. ...
Manga for learning Japanese
(8 posts, 883 views) Posted: 529d 12h, 10m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
There probably aren't raws for many/any kodomo manga available, though someone will undoubtedly prove me wrong. As a learner, though, it's a good idea to pick up a series you love. When I started teaching myself Japanese, I just picked up a se ...
What's your bedtime?
(55 posts, 2882 views) Posted: 534d 13h, 6m ago by Alaena Night in Chatter Box
Weird but true: before college, I did not have a bedtime. I regularly stayed up all night until 8 in the morning or later, and I slept the day away. Unfortunately, that doesn't work well when my days are filled with classes and work. Now, I usually go to bed sometime ...

Sorry, I just have to say that this thread makes me quite happy.

I am a huge fan of suffering bishies. (I like all sorts of suffering biggrin ) /SHOT DEAD If you have any recommendations of any genre, I'd love to hear them. I'm afraid there aren't very ...
Which manga does this pic belong to?
(3 posts, 619 views) Posted: 570d 9h, 37m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
The first page says it's Utau! Heiankyou by Mashiba Shin. It looks interesting, but it doesn't seem as if it's been scanlated. The scanlations for the page you have seem to be in Chinese. Thank goodness they left the mangaka's name in Jap ...

New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 7865 views) Posted: 617d 10h, 13m ago by Alaena Night in News
I picked "Definitely annoyed!" for reasons I can't quite understand—probably because many, many moons ago, I used to get terribly disappointed at the use of bad grammar because grammar is wonderful and lovely to me. (Yes, I am an inco ...
Why is it a tragedy?
(3 posts, 932 views) Posted: 687d 12h, 52m ago by Alaena Night in Immortal Rain
Some characters die, but not necessarily enough to categorize this as a tragedy. Certain events are rather tragic (especially the backstory of some of the characters) but I don't think that any of that should keep you from reading. This series actually has a ...
Do you cuss?
(521 posts, 43623 views) Posted: 748d 12h, 48m ago by Alaena Night in Chatter Box
Not much. For the most part, I think like a sailor and speak like a saint. I subscribe to the idea that cursing is a standby when you can't think of a better insult. Most of the harsh cursing is directed at myself—quick and effective. When I insult other people (me ...
Name of sad manga with robot girlfriend.
(2 posts, 468 views) Posted: 756d 12h, 33m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
I haven't actually read this one, but it's on my to-read list and the premise rings a bell. Is it Saikano? ...
looking for a new, refreshing read
(7 posts, 738 views) Posted: 760d 15h, 56m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
Well... this might be a little random, but you might enjoy Eternal Sabbath. At the very least, it might prove to be a little something different. ...
Do light novels have better stories than manga?
(18 posts, 3857 views) Posted: 764d 17h, 59m ago by Alaena Night in Manga General
Quote from Pionfou
Judging story quality of two entire mediums based on a sample random selection of anime adaptations is ridiculous. I can list plenty of good manga based anime adaptations: Ghost in the Shell, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, Haibane Renmei, Honey ...
Do light novels have better stories than manga?
(18 posts, 3857 views) Posted: 764d 19h, 40m ago by Alaena Night in Manga General
@ Blique: I think you have excellent points and I also believe you've come to the right conclusion, but I don't think it's merely a matter of the place from which they draw their inspiration.

Instead, I think it's a matter of development. Although ...
Realistically Drawn Manga
(11 posts, 910 views) Posted: 784d 10h, 34m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
Brain-dead right now, but Kokou no Hito is a good one with a much more realistic style, especially as you go on. It's unbelievable, and the manga is top-notch. It's excellent to begin with, but once the introduction is done and the story starts getting psycho ...
What is your height and weight?
(421 posts, 36769 views) Posted: 815d 15h, 21m ago by Alaena Night in Chatter Box
Female
5'7 (170cm)
123 lbs (55.8 kg)

I'm afraid I'm one of those awful Americans in addition to being wretched at everything mathematical. I hereby own up to the fact that I used a conversion calculator for these. I hope they're accurate. ^ ...
Any thing similiar?
(11 posts, 851 views) Posted: 840d 10h, 0m ago by Alaena Night in I'm Looking For...
These might work. I strongly recommend Nabari, especially, if you haven't already read it. (It starts out "good"... but it quickly becomes absolutely excellent.)
