Quote from LilyNanami
Try Goong if you don't like manhwas smile wink grin


If people don't like manhwa, I sincerely doubt that Goong will make them change their mind. I normally don't have anything against manhwa, but I hate Goong with passion (sorry if this offends anyone); male leads like that just need to be killed. So, unless you love seeing the main girl being treated like crap, my guess is you won't enjoy it.

For a good manhwa (not including webcomics) I would recommend Song of the Doll.

I recommend Elfen Lied and maybe Detective Conan? I guess it's more gore, but it might introduce you to that kind of manga before you try Berserk.

Thanks, I'm sorry but I already know these, and I don't like any of them.

It pains me when people say that they dislike shounen-ai Here, try Seven Days. I enjoyed it a lot.

I'll look into it. Don't look so pained bigrazz *pat pat*

Neotare...!!!! I hate NTR so much!! It doesn't even have to be Hentai, just having a hint of it in anything is enough to make me flinch on reading a series!!

Completely agree with you there, the first time I read NTR I couldn't go to sleep until 3 am.

It's easier to name dislikes than to come up with a thoughtful answer, so I'll take the challenge. Everyone seems to be avoiding the smex category, so that's an extra challenge, especially since this thread is on the all-ages forum.

First, several posters mentioned that reading ecchi made them uncomfortable. Someone trying to get you to do something with which you are uncomfortable is the very height of creepiness. So I'm not going to try discussing hentai, lolicon, incest, etc - eeek, most of the titles in those categories creep me out too. Even for ecchi, I certainly don't want to convince anyone to read something you are uncomfortable with. But here's a couple great manga in ecchi/mature categories that you might overlook if you always exclude those categories from your searches.

B Gata H Kei is a very cute funny romance where the main character's self-image as a s6 goddess doesn't match reality. Everyone knows a person who thinks they are the world's biggest authority on a topic, but only has information from reading. This manga almost reads like a shoujo romance, except that the main characters' obstacle is a funny reminder of those awkward years when it was hard to even sit next to someone of the opposite gender.

sundome is an excellent hilarious manga, but most definitely ecchi. Each character has (at least) one s6ual hangup that confirms they belong in the outcast group. This is not for the faint-of-heart, for example one character is obsessed with btts6. The story of how a relationship built on a spur-of-the-moment kinky whim forms the foundation of the main character's growth into an adult and a leader is one that stays long after many high school romance plots all mix together in uniformity.

Although neither is hentai, both of these manga have mature themes built into the plots and the character development. In some ways, that's what makes them stand out from the standard ecchi one-adult-act-per-chapter routine. If you read them, you can't avoid those themes or the very frank discussion of topics that might be disturbing to you. But, for me, these examples illustrate how some ecchi manga is much more than an excuse to string together smex scenes.

probably yaoi? I'm straight guy and I just can't bear seeing a guy with another guy... except for those gender-bender ones where the other guy looks like a girl, it makes it tolerable...

until after an hour or so where I feel completely disgusted again.

dunno, normal male reply??

I agree with many others on the NTR. Why would anyone enjoy a series that encourage them to rage, lol.

Other genres I don't really care for (I don't hate them, just don't enjoy them) are:

Shoujo - I know they are geared toward female readers, but I enjoy romance series. I really do. However, I never understand the art styles of soujo series. No offense, but to me, they are just too much for me to bear. Though I was interested by "Bride of the Watergod" for awhile...

Shoujo-ai/Yuri and Shounen-ai/Yaoi - Not homophobic... just me, being a heterosexual male, prefer no sausages and sausages interaction in a romantic manner. Same deal for female on female, but I can't think of something to metaphorically reference that to, lol. laugh

The funny thing about this thread is that some of these genres people post they know will never read; so there's no point... you can never get me to read yaoi.

even I, female, couldn't stand yaoi or shonen ai genre... My friend love it so much and she recommend me to watch/read okane ga nai, loveless and kuroshitsuji, I know the series is great, it just feels... Wrong to me... Romance between cool handsome guy and weak boy (sorry, no offense for the fans), not only that but also the other series I've already read (mostly one-shot)
Instead, I'm okay with yuri, since there are such a good series like, mariasama ga miteru, kanazuki no miiko and strawberry panic.
Maybe I just don't find yaoi series that's make me hook up until now..
Any idea?

Yeah, well I'm not into BL either, but if you watch something like that, those are major leagues as I know. As someone said here, almost every yaoi is like Shinjo Mayu's works. And that's the greatest problem, the way BL is depicted is completely wrong: not every couple in this world is a super-strong seme and the other one a delicate-wimp uke; there's no development at all; and, in most of the cases, there's coercion. I haven't read them, but from comments here and around the web, that's what I think.

Shounen-ai is supposed to be mild, but if you don't like it, there's no turning back. Out of curiosity, once I read The Visitor, and it wasn't that bad. It was mostly because there was a Shinigami (with no gender) and the story had sense, even I felt bad for the guys in it, their stories T.T. I won't spoil, so if you wanna get further into BL, maybe you wanna pick that one.

I'm a straight guy, and there are some shonen-ai manga that I think are genuinely great such as Hagio Moto's works. Of course, there's little in the way of physical contact, except for A Cruel God Reigns which is great but is hard to stomach due to all the abuse and emotional trauma.

I also love some shojo that have a lot of BL subtext but aren't really BL such as Banana Fish and Moon Child.

-I will never get into Shotacon and Lolicon genres. I find both genres rather repulsive.
-I avoid Sports, Slice of Life, and Historical genres because I usually find them to be boring.
-I'm straight and prefer to read about straight chracters, so I tend to avoid Yaoi, Yuri, Shoujo Ai, and Shounen Ai.
-I also avoid Shoujo and Josei because the genres are more geared towards women and they tend to bore me.
