I've already read almost all of recommended titles and tried to read others...

adventure manga. completely scanlated
(8 posts, 1301 views) Posted: 2003d 20h, 40m ago by Iahel in I'm Looking For...
so, I'm looking for an adventure manga which is COMPLETELY scanlated.
I already know lots of titles worth reading but almost all of them are ongoings.

and it should be
- not shoujo (though romance is ok),
- without any schools (cause in mangas all schoo ...
Manga that takes place not in Japan?
(23 posts, 3819 views) Posted: 2015d 19h, 28m ago by Iahel in I'm Looking For...
dozens of fantasy and sci-fi mangas are sent in so strange realities, they cannot be descrided as Japan. though as I can see, you want some real countries.
a half of Nodame Cantabile is set in Europe.
Gunslinger Girl also Europe, mostly Italy.

Are u a fast manga reader??
(261 posts, 29827 views) Posted: 2023d 1h, 21m ago by Iahel in Manga General
it was while reading Monster when I first noticed, that some manga are really ought to be read. it takes much more time to finish a volume of Monster or any other word-packed seinen stuff, comparing to any shounen. most of them are only pictures with short refe ...
Last manga you dropped
(384 posts, 45262 views) Posted: 2037d 17h, 42m ago by Iahel in Manga General
Plus the characters weren't always that consistent.

they were utterly unrealistic. especially the main heroine.

and a one more recent drop шы Nononono.
I expected to read a manga about ski jumping, but got an Elfen Lied 2.0. the last stra ...
Last manga you dropped
(384 posts, 45262 views) Posted: 2043d 0h, 45m ago by Iahel in Manga General
I think it was 1/2 Prince. too shoujo for me. first few volumes was much more game oriented, and as ex-MMO-fag I was trying to figure out game mechanics. but then it just gets too predictable. one girl, two guys... gimme a break none ...
Tokyo Akazukin

Akazukin is on my wish list for a whole eternity, I guess here comes the right time to finally find and read it.
as for disturbing manga... actually almost all my top manga is considered to be disturbing, like Homunculus, Dorohedoro, MPD Psycho, Manhole, Smuggler, Ichi ...
Successor to Bleach/Naruto/One Piece
(179 posts, 32827 views) Posted: 2326d 4h, 27m ago by Iahel in Shounen/Seinen
it would be definitely nostalgic to live without NaruBleaPiece chapters every week... Naruto and Bleach are not so good any more, but seeing chapters coming out for few years already it's like a sign that there's at least something unchangeable in thi ...
Prefer Ongoing or Completed Series?
(94 posts, 7612 views) Posted: 2327d 9h, 47m ago by Iahel in Manga General
recently I prefer my manga completed, cause I already have lots of ongoings to read and sometimes can't keep up with releases cause of IRL stuff, but I think I'll end up reading few ongoings from my wish list... ...

wow, you've just described my ways of lurking new mangas.
but I considered it a "goes without saying" thing for everyone who wants to read some good manga.

btw I have a one more way, but it's difficult to describe it... let's see, th ...
I can't be a manga-ka!
(29 posts, 4420 views) Posted: 2387d 19h, 13m ago by Iahel in Manga General
manga is just a tool to express your great (or not so great) ideas. it doesn't mean that if you suddenly try to draw comic you'll suck. just feel the difference.
you can draw a descent story that will attract even Japanese and make them translate your c ...

Harem Manga is Teh Awesome.
(101 posts, 14741 views) Posted: 2401d 19h, 9m ago by Iahel in Shounen/Seinen
I can't really recall a good one that I've read.
The problem is, the guy always seems that he can't appreciate the great situation he's in, and the girls really have no reason to want to be with such a clueless guy... it just seems so unr ...
Genres/Tags you don't like

shounen-ai, yaoi, yuri, shoujo-ai etc.
hentai (but I don't really consider hentai a manga...)
lolicon, shotacon

will avoid to read it, but maybe give it a try:

Brains, Not Brawn!
(32 posts, 5539 views) Posted: 2405d 20h, 0m ago by Iahel in Shounen/Seinen
Mustang from Full Metal Alchemist
Ida from Jiraishin

I think those guys are more brains + brawn type, cause they rely not only on brains but also on brawns (guns).
and we should consider the fact that some manga's characters are all brain-users (soun ...
Talent vs Potential
(29 posts, 3221 views) Posted: 2405d 20h, 16m ago by Iahel in Shounen/Seinen
Without a heart, talent and potential will waste. So i think main character must have heart first

yep, heart is a big deal, even hero won't be able to live without it xD
the way they see this precious "heart" in most mangas it's an ability to s ...
Why manga?
(73 posts, 6273 views) Posted: 2438d 6h, 3m ago by Iahel in Manga General
I haven't read lots of comics, just some random stuff in childhood and some others from time to time. superhero issue is one of the disturbing ones, but there are also great pieces, like Watchman, but to call it comics... honestly. sometimes it's like a littl ...

I can't call it a mistake, but when I speak some foreign language for a long time i can't freely switch it to another foreign language. it do look like my brain has a special switch or something for each language.

(139 posts, 25619 views) Posted: 2492d 6h, 11m ago by Iahel in Shounen/Seinen
just try to compare some recent chapters made by Oda and some made by Kishi and Kubo. even though basics are similar, the way they develop them is completely different.
Oda's imagination is something outstanding. he uses as prototypes whole world c ...
