|New Poll - Importance of the Story
(9 posts, 36 views) Posted: 3 hours ago by calstine in News
My answer for this is pretty much the opposite of my answer for the inverse version from a couple of weeks back: I'll keep trying in the hope that the story improves, because, for me, finding characters I love is much rarer than finding a plot I like.
Probably an ...

|New Poll - Importance of the Main Character
(16 posts, 141 views) Posted: 14 days ago by calstine in News
I almost never like the protagonist, my favourite usually ends up being the second or third lead (who is not a love interest), and I'm a very plot-focused reader, so this was a fairly straightforward choice of: Yes, the other stuff is more important to me ...
|Looking for yaoi manga with financially/ socially superior uke

Kayashimashi no Yuuga na Seikatsu
Tenshi no Uta (NISHIDA Higashi)
Edit: I just realised that while both of these uke are rich and stuck-up and the seme poorer than them, neither seme is shy or insecure. Sorry!
There's also the Rich Uke tag, but the number o ...

It's funny, but while Jinjuu Houretsuden, G-Defend, Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru, Silver Diamond and Koori no Mamono no Monogatari fulfil all/most of your bulleted criteria above, I'd never describe them as having a "shounen flair," ...
|New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 185 views) Posted: 21 days ago by calstine in News
Quote from SinsI
This one is very hard, and every case is special - so solutions also need to be different.
Why was the non-standard dialect used in the first place?
If it is to show that the character is of somewhat different culture (i.e. uses Kansai-ben) - when making t ...

Oh, this is a favourite theme (or lack of a theme?) of mine, too! My lists are public, so you can look through them at any time -- it's easier that way, since I have my completed series sorted by genre. And I don't read harem, so you'll find none of ...

(20 posts, 413 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by calstine in News
I'm fine with either option 1 or 3, though I ended up voting for 1. I'm generally an advocate for preserving the native feel of the story, anyway. And this doesn't apply only to Eastern fiction, but to Western as well. Like if I were reading a translation ...

Second option for me, not because I read a lot of manga there (I don't read online at all if I can help it), but because there were several anonymous groups based on Batoto who were scanlating series I read, and I have no idea where they'll go now. ...

As a fan of bespectacled characters myself, I always find it frustrating how very stereotyped they tend to be. Anyway, here go my recs (I can't be sure that you'll agree with them, though, since the idea of 'stereotypical' tends to vary fr ...
