I'm catching up with the classics ^^ Just finished Baldur's Gate (EE) a few days ago and now I'm starting BG2 (also EE). Shame on me for calling myself a RPG fan and only playing this two titles now They are great, though. ...
|How do you name your characters?
(58 posts, 7143 views) Posted: 579d 13h, 30m ago by Shourii in Games
Different name for every game.
I'm leaving default when the character is created for you (already has an identity) and you're just seing the story through his/her eyes e.g Zelda's Link will always remain "Link", same with Final Fant ...

This chapter was suffering
And I'm in the 50/50 camp - knowing FT, he will be back... but Mashima can write painful stuff if he wants to as he already proved in Rave Master

The story of Shinsengumi (Edo/Meiji) is shown in a cool way in Hakuouki, though I would suggest reading the visual novel (there's also anime). This vn is pretty much a history lesson with romance and supernatural elements ...

You're pretty much asking for Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji. I only saw the anime, but it was enough for me to hate this guy wholeheartedly.
Also Yuki wa Jigoku ni Ochiru no ka comes to mind. ...

(24 posts, 3649 views) Posted: 679d 16h, 16m ago by Shourii in Shoujo/Josei
I'm also in my 20s and I'm reading/watching stuff from really serious to completely silly - you're never "too old" for anything, as long as you're having fun doing it ^^
But I must say, it's a litte bit more complicated with sh ...

Pretty much most of the sport series fit:
Kuroko no Basket
Prince of Tennis

Definitely Otome Youkai Zakuro. It's tagged as seinen, but it's pretty much an action shoujo with lots of romance Same case with Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.
Fruits Basket and Special A are also from this category, but you probably know them already ...

That's not much... Can you remember what sport he plays? Then you can search by tags.
Anyway I tried to do some genre search - here's the list of the comedy-sports-shoujo series (and I excluded the genres I think doesn't fit your title). Maybe ...

Quote from 7godeohs
I've been looking for the same thing recently (and basically constantly) so I'll watch this thread with interest.
Like you, I've been looking for new series to read for quite some time so thank you for the suggestions - I will defin ...

Ok, I've read most of the classics/the best of the genre/the most popular, so what I'm looking for now is an ongoing shoujo, that's fairly new. Let's say, something that started within the last 3 years or so. A gem that's not that wel ...

It's a fanart by the artist called Sumi Keiichi. The description says "Kaleido Star" though I don't know how it's related to that series.
Here's the link to the gallery:

Yes, you will find something like that in both: Hakkenden and Karneval
Makai Ouji - Devils and Realist is a given.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn! is pretty much full of it.
Check out Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (Kurogane and Fai) if you have a lot of free time.
Also, I didn' ...

Sounds cool, but no thanks
I like my native language, that is Polish, and some poeple even say it is one of the most difficult languages in the world - e.g. we have 17 different ways to say "two" and some awesome pronounciation ("w Szczebrzeszyn ...

Akagami no Shirayukihime
Noragami (if you're alright with shounens)

Sennen no Yuki - vampire and a real cutie
Noragami - Yato is a God of Calamity but is a sweet dork
Maybe some "classics"? Full Moon wo Sagashite (he is a shinigami) or Fruits Basket (he's kind of got a "demon" sealed in him - but ...

I wanted to be a hairstylist! But that was when I was really young.
Then it was an archeologist and an astronomer, but there are no jobs for people in this line of work in my country, so I gave up on it in the end.
Now I'm studying to be a translator and it's ...
