A Kiss to the Prince

Hmm... very very nice art. The plot has a lot of twists but often jumps to conclusions, in order to carry them out. And then... the characters aren't very consistent either.

And a bunch of other titles.

I'm someone who reaaally avoids dropping manga but I just had to do it for Chocolate Cosmos. It started out promising and seemed like it won't be too sickly sweet but damn, that impression only lasted for one chapter! mad I really feel like I wasted my time still trying to read it... so I dropped it haha bigrazz

Belmondo le VisiteuR

I really liked the first few chapters for the European ambience, the light touches of comedy that sometimes dived a little into black comedy and the cast which seemed somewhat likeable. And all of it seemed to be a really carefully laid tale about a young man with unusual abilities which would serve as part of the humor and the interactions between the cast that would provide variety to the overall plot. And possibly, the tale would cover how he would venture into the outside world with the the old cast.

But then, it went onto some conspiracy tale by using a twist that screwed over much of the characterization and all the efforts in the first few chapters. -_-;;

That said, I will not be reading this further 'cos it reeks of "publisher/editor forcing mangaka to change direction of the plot"(in an attempt to create some Naruto clone) or if not, poor construction of the plot. It could have been much more but even if it hadn't been cut short, much of the new plot direction would've been really predictable and terrible.

A prime example of how it sucks to write for the wrong magazine, I guess. smile

Clover (OTSU Hiyori)

Nothing terrible, just another set of stories set in school or with school uniforms about "2 humans who just happened to share the same gender falling in love". It's just that it lacks the kinda punch that'd keep me reading.

Cafe Relish ni Oide

I've read wayyy too much great, unforgettable manga to put up with this crap. When the main character is overdramatic and angst for no real reason, I drop out.

But maybe I was just in a bad mood that day, haha. biggrin

Oh, and the first time I read Pita Ten I got a headache. no
Actually, I almost get a headache just thinking about it.

Naruto/Bleach/One Piece - Like most others who've done this, they drag on a little too much for my taste.
Full Moon wo Sagashite - I had this phase where I thought "gee, Skip Beat (at around chapter 40) isn't that bad, so let's try another shoujo". And the story just....didn't do it for me. It was cute and all, but there's many more seinen manga that I can go to for "cute".
Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu - At first I was like, "OMG! MELANCHOLY SPIN-OFF" 5 chapters later, it just seemed to be stuck in the mud.
D. Gray Man - The author got sick, combine that with my dropping interest led me to drop this for the moment.
Black Lagoon - As much as I loved this series, the "El Baile De Muerte" arc went on for over 50 chapters, and took roughly a year. Now that the arc ended, I'm thinking of reading it again.
Rosario to Vampire II - It just seems to be going nowhere.
I wish I'd done the smart thing and just dropped To-LOVE-Ru when I had. The abrupt, thoughtless ending was something that had me raging for the next week after.
Also, If I can count anime, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009) made me ragequit after seeing the same episode 6 times. I hear that there were actual episodes after ep 8, though I was too busy ignoring Haruhi so much I've never checked.

You know it's released monthly right? They can't be fast in their releases if it's only once a month. And to be fair to them, they do release R+V monthly.

>_< Didn't think about that. I withdraw the release speed statement.

I don't think I've really dropped a manga. there are some that I stop reading after 3-4 chapters but I don't really think that counts.

Absolute Boyfriend.

I'd been putting it off for a while after being curious about it... read the first four chapters. It was cute. Nice art. Made me laugh somewhat. I thought I'd wiki it and spoiler it for myself cos I like to do that sometimes, then I read the last two chapters. And I'd never noticed the tragedy tag. Which isn't to say I avoid tragedy tagged manga however...

Spoiler (highlight to view)
He fucking dies at the end? Are you kidding me? He learns human emotions, she falls utterly utterly in love with him, she rejects her childhood friend (Who ends up leaving the country) for him, they're practically married and he "DIES" shortly after? REALLY? And he wrote a letter to the childhood friend to tell him to come back and take care of her? Just HOW is that supposed to make anyone feel better? "Sup, I'm the dude you rejected and I'll always be second best but here I am cos he loves you just that much and doesn't want you to be alone... Feels good?" It's so... flippant? Ridiculous? I can't even begin to comprehend such a ridiculous half assed ending. And so what if he DOES wake up when she's an old woman. Love is love, right? They would have had to deal with it even if he hadn't "died." Something like the ending of Kindan no Koi de Ikou would have been less irritating or maybe if she had died.


But yeah. Just the sheer rage makes me never ever want to read it through.

My exact feelings about the ending. This was pretty much the reason I've never picked up a work by Yuu Watase since.

As for series I've recently dropped, probably Sousoukyoku Nightmare. I read the first chapter and it was just bad. Maybe it's because I read this series first but I feel that Yumekui Kenbun did it much better. I'm also considering dropping Absorb; Ability. Maybe it was just the translation, but the dialogue felt very stiff and awkward and the plot made no sense what so ever. But it's only two chapters so I feel like I should just stick with it.

I recently dropped HunterxHunter.

There were parts that I really liked but there were also other that I didn't because I felt they were dragging. I don't feel like skimming to find an arc that I'd enjoy.

Just dropped two series: Arakure and Cantarella. The former wasn't very funny and with the later I just couldn't get into it. The characters really turned me away from the series.

I started this manga because I had heard good things about it. It started out pretty good and I liked the drama. I especially like Shinogu and all his problems. But Ryoki was just annoying. All he ever saoid was 'slave this' or slave that'. And hatsumi just takes crap all the time and never ever grows stronger.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she doesn't even end up with a semi decent guy. I mean really, she has to choose the a**hole!?!?!


i kept reading until v08 to see if it turned any better but eventually I gave up. anyways, it turned into a really terrible soap opera. Waste of my time.

This pretty much echoes my thoughts on this title.

Idol Shopping. The main character was a female and she suppose to be really strong. Instead she a weak woman that kept getting kidnapped and almost raped. She was just as annoying as any other female in a shounen manga mad
