|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 773 views) Posted: 18d 12h, 37m ago by catandmouse in News
Comic books are hard to come by and kinda expensive, hence why I don't read as much as I would like. Also, comics have a harder story narrative to follow, whereas manga it's a central storyline and there might be spin-offs, sequels, but the stories ...
|American Comics For Manga Fans

I would add Fables to the list.
It's about fairy tales (called fables) who were banished from their home and now live in our world.
There's Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, the big bad wolf, little red riding hood, et all.
I forgot to add American Vampire ...

Beauty Pop it may be about beauticians but Kiri is not much of a girly-type.
Bring it on! some drama, but it's 5 volumes long so it gets resolved pretty fast.
I gotta warn you though, both these series romances are slow and very subtle, but at least for me they ar ...

(0 posts, 116 views) Posted: 45d 12h, 46m ago by catandmouse in Yaoi/Yuri
Ok, so I randomly remembered this story I read a while back and I've been wanting to re-visit it.
What I remember:
This guy walks in on his nephew with the girl. Older guy tells his nephew to get dressed so he can go to school.
'Later on in the story, the ...

To each their own, I guess.
I still enjoy reading it, and even on my review of the series, I noted that it was difficult to explain why I liked it, I just do.
For example, there are a few series that I hardly see any complains about, yet I can't bring myself to like them. ...

(531 posts, 130448 views) Posted: 61d 12h, 11m ago by catandmouse in Shoujo/Josei
Seriously why can't more shojo protagonists be not stupider than dirt?
Even protagonists I like, like Tohru from Fruits Basket is really stupid. At least she's not also annoyingly cloying and boy-crazy and boy-stupid ...

I'm pretty sure I've answered something here before, but it's always fun to revisit old threads, then again ,there are always new series popping up that you may like or hate.
Anyway, someone above me mentioned Hana yori Dango and even th ...
|im looking for a shoujo manga without insta love

I really like Beauty Pop
Some people might say the romance is practically non-existent, but it's there, it's just not really the main focus.
I wonder if Kimi ni Todoke might count?
|Too old for shoujo manga?
(11 posts, 621 views) Posted: 77d 20h, 5m ago by catandmouse in Manga General
I'm about to leave my 20's behind, and I don't think I read too much shojo, but my age doesn't mean ill stop reading something if it catches my attention.
Besides, this is a loaded question because "shojo" is more than just high s ...

|Why is old manga unpopular?
(32 posts, 2992 views) Posted: 126d 19h, 41m ago by catandmouse in Manga General
I want to say it is mainly the art styles and the lack of feasible reading for older titles (i'd say 20 years is not too "old" since a lot of manga that recently ended or are still ongoing are about that "old". Ex. One Piece, Fruits Basket, Kare ...

(29 posts, 2186 views) Posted: 133d 20h, 13m ago by catandmouse in Chatter Box
I think I'm going to go Marvel on this. My favorite super hero is Spider-man and I have really enjoyed some of the MCU's movies like the winter soldier and guardians of the galaxy.
Even though I've seen most of the batman movies since childhoo ...

Megumi! That's who I thought he was! I forgot about him.
And yeah, I think the reason I think Mutsuki might be Momiji's kid besides the fact that he kinda looks like him, is his mannerisms.
We'll just have to wait and see I suppose? ...

So I just started reading this, and even though the chapters are really short, I am truly enjoying the story.
For the little we've been shown of the main character, Sawa, I am liking her.
As for the other characters, I'm assuming Hajime is Kyo's kid ...

Don't worry. I like revenge stories where the person seeking rev eve never backs down from said revenge. I'd have to add to your request,
Are there any revenge stories with a female character who does not waver?

I've never read the notes of lady kanoko, so I can't say for sure I'll be on the mark with my suggestions:
Kiri from beauty pop is pretty blasé about everything and she's not worried about guys or typical shojo heroine stuff.

Not sure this fits exactly what you want, mainly because most leads are kinda sense in this whole love thing, but it's short and sweet. The guys falls and realizes and confesses first.
