    I cried when the last episode of the live action of Yamada and the Seven Witches drama finished airing because it meant no more live action Yamada x Miyamura scenes, the actors are so good and that was like the only reason I watched the live action.

    The people on 2ch who hang out at spoiler threads are aware of the existence of Mangapanda.

    It is interesting! I really think English speaking fandoms are so conservative compared to the Japanese fandoms. If you like a crack pairing, among English-speaking circles it would be really difficult to find someone else who ships it. In a Japanese group, they may have a whole doujinshi full of stories based on it. I wonder what sets the precedents for these kind of things.
    I never knew that! I would have thought it would be the other way around where Japanese fans would be more conservative. Maybe it's because crack pairings are interpreted as something not to be taken seriously whereas Japanese fans embrace it like any other more "legitimate" ship.

I feel really guilty about how much advantage I have over Japanese readers.
    I'm quoting myself here to expand on this comment a little further: I know where Luffy is during the ONE PIECE newspaper event because of the WSJ thread over in Otaku Shoten; however, Japanese fans won't know until their evening which is still six hours away.

    Not only do I read manga chapters ahead of them, I even know news earlier too. It's a weird feeling. If I ever decide to live in Japan one day, I'll try to avoid reading scanlations before the real release date is out.

    I confess I haven't read the arc about Sabo, Ace and Luffy in One Piece. I began to read OP when the manga was in that arc, and I caught up right after the arc and when the strawhats were about to reunited again; and I was that impressed with Ace's dead, that I decided to jump over the long flashback and try to find the moment they were together again... Now that Sabo is back, I'll read it. I guess that the reason why Sabo says Luffy he can't have the flame fruit can be understood if you know their story.

    Why would anyone ever go over a OP flashback though, those are nearly the best parts of the arcs.

    Some people really don't like flashbacks. You frequently post in the OP forum, I don't need to tell you how many fans complain during flashback arcs. Not just here, the same thing happens at every forum. I don't get it either, flashbacks are critical. They are always such important plot movers. Some of the best stories have been flashbacks. Luffy, Ace, and Sabo was an especially good one. Robin's flashback, and Franky's, were also particularly good. Zoro flashbacks are one of my most anticipated arcs.

    Re: The Manga-Anime-Asian Drama Confessional Thread

    Man, I follow Kaitani Shinobu on twitter, and I still can't figure out when Liar Game is coming back from hiatus. Seeing the bunko editions for volumes 1 & 2 made me realize how much I miss that series. I mean, I know he's working on his other detective series, but at least give some kind of update!

    And speaking of Liar Game, even after all this time it still bugs me how new readers will hate on the female lead. Nao being so naive is one of the reasons why the manga has such a strong hook. The whole premise hinges on whether or not Nao will be able to adapt to the rules of the game. I think some readers mistake the author for favoring her attitude in earlier chapters, like as if being that innocent and honest is a good thing. Its not, she is completely dependent on Akiyama at the beginning and she learns to become self-reliant after that.

    What's even more annoying is when said Nao haters feel the need to criticize her, but not question whether or not the premise is sexist by association. Especially since Nao is pretty much the only reoccuring female character for the first 50 or so chapters. Maybe its just me but I can't hate a character without at least trying to understand what the author meant to convey with them.

    Re: The Manga-Anime-Asian Drama Confessional Thread

    I enjoyed reading the Fushigi Yuugi light novels more than the manga itself. The biggest reason is because of the lack of Miaka -sorry, not sorry- while the other reasons include more world building and character development. I just read Amiboshi and Suboshi's backstory and knowing what happens to them afterwards is heartbreaking.

    It really grinds my gear when people assume that life in Japan is exactly what it seems in manga/anime...

    If someone wants to know how Japanese people live day to day, they would either have to go to Japan or interact with someone whose actually from there. This is applicable for other places as well; generalization and assumptions are not good.

    Watching dramas, or at least the Yamada and the Seven Witches Drama at least showed me how 3d JPN looks, oddly definitely not how I imagined it based on what I saw in animes and mangas. Though it made me want to check out more dramas which Im trying to find time to do.

    Yeah, manga/anime!Japan is very different from RL!Japan mainly because they can bend reality in a way that wouldn't necessarily work with J-dramas. As with any form of entertainment, the audience has to be aware that there are quite a number of things that are exaggerated or simplified.

    Re: The Manga-Anime-Asian Drama Confessional Thread

    I confess that after months of not watching anime...I think it’s around 10 months since I last watched an anime series, I have started watching anime again. In fact, I have started watching Kuroko no Basket and I’m enjoying watching it a lot!
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    Re: The Manga-Anime-Asian Drama Confessional Thread

    I started reading ONE's Onepunch-Man webcomic and I don't know why people badmouth the drawings so much. He wasn't a published mangaka, just a creative guy doing it out of his own free time. There are a LOT of webcomics that start out very simple and get expanded on as they gain popularity. Also, I think ONE's drawings make some of the jokes funnier than in the Murata remake (not that the remake isn't good on its own).

    Its hard for me to get into dramas because of 3D

    Though Ive been eyeing Liar game and some medical drama coming to CR to try to see if either can be as gripping and get me into them like Yamada 7 did.
