Character Growth? I don´t know, none of these say much about the narrative and none are a red flag either. Tsundere should be the least appealing, i guess.

Don´t "aspire". Just start publishing (on the web) if you have been doing it for more than a year or so. No successful author ever needed permission from anyone and Rebel Without a Crew by Robert Rodriguez may be about film making but it s ...

The 2nd Prince song from Batman ´89 and his tie-in album didn´t work at all but

My opinion can be found all over this ANN thread and i spoke up in ANN´s earlier discussions too. Stalk away! To summarize:

A solid B+ chapter and i like that it just moved along and didn´t need to reestablish anything or renumber. That´s the main strength of delayed Japanese publications for you.

Any ending is the only one for me. An author with a vision should just go for it and not chicken out or pander. The abrupt options seems to be the only bad one among the selected and Parasyte has my favorite ending of any comic to date. More than half of the opti ...

Sanctuary and Yamikin Ushijima-kun should be the current standard for Yakuza manga. Neither are perfect but both went for a bleak world view and an R-rating. As such stories should.
