More than more variety, I would like to see more of a realistic approach to finding/keeping a job and using money.
It seems that everyone in manga has a decent paying job, or else it's really easy for them to get a job. It's almost like characters just w ...

Wow, I'll probably forget some, but anyway, the ones I go back to reread often(since I have the books at hand) or that I'm always recommending in forums:

I haven't read Naruto in over 150 chapters, so I don't really know what's going on, but I am disappointed in reading that nothing panned out between Hinata and Naruto. I mean, I hate it when stories have a pretty solid reason for liking someone, a ...

Ooh, loaded question, indeed!
I would say let others work on the same series I'm working on, but at the same time,I'm like "I spend so much time working on this chapter already and it's already out".
Granted, it is frustrating to wait, and ...

Kiss and Never Cry
This one is a seinen (Granted,I don't read much seinen/josei, so I can't say if it reads like one), but it was really good:
This one is a shojo, but I think it's not as mindless as a lot of shojo's out there:

Whenever I hear myself speak in video and or recordings, I always think "Is that really my voice?" i don't like how it sounds, but I guess it might just be me being overly critical of it. ...
|Do you feel that fans hate the protagonist, but love the love interest too much?
(7 posts, 389 views) Posted: 38d 9h, 29m ago by catandmouse in Shoujo/Josei
As someone that's not to fond of shojo heroines, I don't think that fans are too harsh. I think it's more of the fact that people are tired of the same weak willed protagonist and then add the fact that the love interest is actually an interesting chara ...

I'm super picky about my shojo romances, and this is one series that I kept ignoring because the preview just didn't appeal to me, it sounded like such a typical shojo, but then I had the chance to read the first chapter and have watched about 13 episod ...

|'Typical' Shoujo Manga, a survey
(12 posts, 520 views) Posted: 79d 6h, 52m ago by catandmouse in I'm Looking For...
Ok, I just want to ask for a clarification: when you say shojo are you just asking about content or serialization?
The reason I ask this is because a lot of manga might seem shojo, or shonen, or seinen, etc, etc, but the magazine they are being serialized is not what it ...
