Looking for a manga that has a lot of themes about real things. Also must be a romance targeted at females.

Example: Real Clothes which talks about the MC's struggle to find meaning in her work and exercising her talent, having ambition, and where ...
Mangas with Calm Strategist Protagonisst
(5 posts, 2327 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by Limerent in I'm Looking For...
Chang ge Xing is incredible. A somewhat realistic historical drama about the main character who escapes the downfall of an empire and uses her intelligence (war tactics, general genius) to carry out her plans for revenge etc.

Art is gorgeous and I ...

Thanks for these! I've read Ashi-girl since I loved Gokusen. Those definitely fall under this category. Will check out the others too <:
Quirky/dopey female lead romance
(3 posts, 612 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by Limerent in I'm Looking For...
Hello, as per the title, looking for some romance manga with a female lead that's kind of quirky and out there. Examples:

Nodame Cantabile - Nodame's a messy person, her piano-playing is (charmingly) wild and free, she loves this children's anime, ...
What's the best art and/or story you've ever seen and/or read?
(11 posts, 1304 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by Limerent in Manga General
Good art:

Chang ge Xing - Absolutely gorgeous Chinese artist. Gorgeous is the best way I can put it.

Tomodachi no Hanashi - Breezy, thin lines and a very pretty style.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu - Simple, clean art. This manga isn't BL but the man...
Good IOS apps for reading downloaded manga?

Hi,

I currently use Manga Rock on my phone. You can download manga to your device if you have the paid version. In addition, I think they have some kind of premium currency called "Rocks" that you can use to download a limited amount of manga. The ...
Why do you scanlate?

I'm such a picky reader so I spend so much time looking for and testing out manga. When I find one I really do like and it's not been updated for so long, I get so heartbroken! So I'm not exactly a scanlator yet... but my friend and I have started...

Looking for atypical original manga, intelligent manga, and realistic romance

Thought of some manga I love that fit under my categories!

Original, atypical: [m]...Seishunchuu!![/m], [m]Change Ge Xing[/m], [m]Annarasumanarap[/m] (Korean)
Intelligent, pretentious: none that fit quite right
Romance: like people have suggested I a...

I'm looking for a few things!

A lot of manga I read do a lot of pandering to tropes like the same old storylines, love-at-first-site, lame relatable protagonist, etc.

First of all, any manga out there that really breaks the mold of typical shoujo/sh...
Historical Manga
(7 posts, 2690 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Limerent in I'm Looking For...
Kaze Hikaru was very historical. It's set mainly around fighting for the shogunate and has a lot of historical facts. It's a shoujo about a girl joining a samurai group, falling in love and hiding her identity. It's pretty funny and was a fun read...
Kingdom Setting?
(9 posts, 2637 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Limerent in I'm Looking For...
I'm looking for manga with a setting in a kingdom, with kings, commoners, castles war, horses, and all that jazz. Romance is strongly preferred, especially if it is a female lead who isn't a princess or some nobility. I would do a category search ...
Why I really hate vampire knight
(19 posts, 8564 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Limerent in Vampire Knight
I just hate how it went from your usual shoujo to a dark and more intricate story line.

To be honest, if the manga just went one way or another, I would have been okay with it.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If it went down the shoujo story line, Yuuki...
Female lead that is realistic.

I'm looking for a manga with a female lead that is realistic. Not to say that she doesn't have dreams or is super-cynical, but that she takes situations for what they are. A big plus if she is smart/strong intellectually and emotionally.

Romance wo...

Gokusen is a shoujo, but it's got some funny parts. One of the best strong female lead shoujo there is ^^

Problem with forum signatures.
(0 posts, 1171 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Limerent in Suggestions & Bugs
Making forum signs, has a problem with the (manga) tags.

The text with included manga tags is under 512 characters (87 exactly) but it gets the error of being over. It may have something to do with manga tags becoming series' page url?

How can Liar Game considered to be a universally good manga when it seems drawn by a 5 year old child? confused
I can pretty much bash about half of the manga here mentioned, but I'm gonna refrain from that. I don't think something l...

Quote from Lorska
I think "any" is a bit too much... there are the shounen-ecchi-action fanboys as there are the shoujo-cliched-drama fangirls and as well romance manga crazed people like myself.
You seriously should search the forums, there are a b...

After reading a lot of manga for my demographic (shoujo), I'm interested in just generally good manga that any fan of manga would enjoy. That is not to say that the manga isn't focused on a specific topic, but something that anybody could relate t...
Mangas with simple but beautiful art
(10 posts, 2169 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Limerent in I'm Looking For...
Definitely Tomodachi no Hanashi, just beautiful art. Most manhwas have great digital art too. I second Annarasumanara! It has original and "out-there" art at times.
Romance where they get to know each other first.

I just finished Bijo ga Yajuu, I really liked the main character but the romance/ending was kinda unsatisfactory, any others like it?

Perhaps something more realistic as well? o:

A lot of romance in manga starts with attraction and then getting to know one another. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for manga where the couple doesn't start off immediately in love, but rather get to know each other and love each ...
