|What type of heroine do you go for?
(8 posts, 762 views) Posted: 6d 14h, 14m 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.

Everyone is pissed at the ending, myself included but for a completely different reason.

|Has manga changed your opinion of American Comics?
(25 posts, 1179 views) Posted: 55d 11h, 29m ago by catandmouse in Chatter Box
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.
Sakura Gari from what I remember, this one is really smutty and plot centric. ...

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 ...

|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 1852 views) Posted: 142d 9h, 43m 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 ...

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.

I gotta warn you though, both these series romances are slow and very subtle, but at least for me they ar ...

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. ...

Seriously why can't more shojo protagonists be not stupider than dirt?
