|Is it just me, or are shoujo mangas getting even more predictable?
(49 posts, 8932 views) Posted: 7d 4h, 53m ago by catandmouse in Shoujo/Josei
I think subconsciously I read more shojo than I think I do, mainly because I try to avoid the ones that don't sound appealing to me ( like the ones with the overly stupid female lead and the very handsome perfect guy falling for her because reasons), or the und ...

I don't speak/ read understand Japanese, so I can't say much about the accuracy or lack thereof of google translate. What I can say as a bilingual person though is that in order to translate you need to have a very good understanding of both langua ...

|What type of heroine do you go for?
(9 posts, 1010 views) Posted: 81d 4h, 11m ago by catandmouse in Shoujo/Josei
I tend to be extremely harsh with female characters, but sometimes I even surprise myself at some I the heroines I like.
My ultimate favorite shojo heroine has to be Kiri from Beauty Pop. I don't care if the story is not that deep or whatnot, I have not encounte ...

That's very broad in the sense that shojo is more than just "romance". Personally I avoid them as much as possible, but I've read some so here it goes.

Not really. Before I knew that "manga" meant more than just the Spanish word for "sleeve" I liked spider-man.
Around my area there was only one comic book store and comics are expensive! I never had an "official" allowan ...

Koimonogatari (TAGURA Tohru) I just read all that is available, and there's is virtually no smut (yet), but it is heavy on plot, though.

Sounds very interesting in theory. Execution is difficult, but honestly I think it all comes down to luck. At least that's what I think. I've read things that I've considered "bad" that have been extremely profitable/ popular, but other things th ...

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 ...

I would add Fables to the list.

There's Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, the big bad wolf, little red riding hood, et all.

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. ...
