    Re: The Finestela Thread

    What are your thoughts on yaoi and yuri? In general, women accept both genres. Men seem to be allergic to yaoi and indifferent towards yuri (flying in the face of sexual stereotypes about men).

    Personally, I'm fine with both, and even enjoys many work from these two genres

    Whether it's soft-Yuri/Bara like MariMite and Hetalia, or really heavy (or even x-rated) works such as Shoujo Sect or the countless BL doujinshi... I've read them all

    There are people who call me a fujoushi... but in reality, I pretty much reads anything and everything (save a few) I can get my hands on (including... you know what... ).

    Re: The Finestela Thread

    Thanks so much for the RAWs and translations. Are you interested about translate other mangas? I translate Ayu Mayu into spanish but the project is stopped because there arent any translation since chapter 24. In other hand, there are several interesting mangas waiting be translated. Azumanga "10 years" must be great, I'm surely reading soon. Thanks again and keep it up your good work!

    PS: Sorry for my english. I'm native spanish speaker

    Sorry about that :/

    Re: The Finestela Thread

    I like shoujo: Favs are Fushigi Yugi, anything of Yuu Watase (AK is shounen, doesn't count), Good Morning Call... there has to bee something I forget

    Speaking about yuri (men are indiferent towards yuri? Which world is that in?), why is that there is a yaoi/shonen ai thread, but there isn't/I can't find a yuri thread, huh? Yes, I'm a sucker for it, and in search of the "perfect" yuri story.

    Actually, haven't seen/read much, of anything because I can't stand too much on a row. There are days when I lose the interest...

    Ok, so much already, this is your topic.

    ¿What do you want for birthday? :3 random saving question duh

    Re: The Finestela Thread

    I like Watase-sensei's earlier works, but later ones a bit... erm...
    No matter how much people tries to convince me otherwise, I just can't seem to like Zettai Kareshi. Genbu Kaiden... It felt like Watase is trying too hard to make it different from the original series, and the exceedingly heavy atmosphere in the book turned me off a little.

    Fushigi Yuugi and Ayashi no Ceres are both great reads, and the other shorter series like Alice 19th and Imadoki! are light and fun as well^^

    You can start a Yuri thread, or request the mods to start one... I'm fairly sure they wouldn't mind

    I dread the coming of my birthdays to be honest with you

    Re: The Finestela Thread

    I liked Zettai Kareshi, it's actually the first Watase thing (apart from oneshots) that I have ended reading.

    Also liked Genbu Kaiden, though for some reasons dropped it. Will come back to it soon.

    I forgot something

    Orz I guess after being too used to Watase's fantasy style series, I'm just not that used to the real world... (rofl)

    Genbu Kaiden is just so depressing to read

    My ID name is actually an invention of a friend. Back when I was playing OLG, I usually use names that are either more masculine or neutral... but when I tried to come up with a more feminine... I couldn't think of anything at all (lol)

    My best friend came up with this name (she's insanely into MMO's when she was in Middle School and High School), and she gave me this name to use. So after a while, it sort of grew on me

    Fin, thanks for uploading Kenichi this week. You made my day

    Rgr yuri and all that... I definitely wouldn't like at all that TLR ended with Rito dating Saruyama, and LaLa dating Yui. No way. This kind of defines my position, doesn't it?

    Re: The Finestela Thread

    I like manga that focus on relationships a lot.

    my current favourite is Saruyama! (Monkey High! in NA) by Akira Shouko next to that is Girl Friends by Morinaga Miruku (thanks for the raw btw)

    I do not read any other Yuri manga except those by Morinaga-sensei and actually have no wish to do so. For me she sets the relationship between Mari and Akko so well that I just love to see them together as a couple the fact that they are two girls seems almost secondary, I don't know if that sounds strange or not.

    Nope, that's not strange at all

    Most of the soft-yuri such as these spends a large part of the series depicting the interactions and relationships between the two girls. When you enjoy the series, it's likely that the depiction of such is what you find the most appealing. (The same apply to soft-bara).

    If you have time and are interested, you should check out the series Kashimashi: Girl meets Girl. It's also a very fun to read series

    lol, well, as much as I enjoy BL/GL, I wouldn't want that either

    Thanks, I feel relieved knowing that ToraDora is safe. I'm trying get used to Perfect Dark, but I'm pretty much having a hard time with it. Very confusing. Btw, what happened to DeroDero? I haven't seen a scanlation out from Xiphias from a long time.

    You'll have to talk to Xip about it
    But my translations had been a bit slow the past two weeks because... a tree fell on my roof, and smashed the master bedroom pretty good

    I've been struggling with the insurance claim (or, rather, getting satisfying estimates for the insurance adjuster from the contractors)
