I was a kid and was very bored back then so I read any manga that I find interesting.
    That is unfortunate, I hope you would pick up more shoujo/josei series later! Not that I think I read that many seinen series, but there are also several old and new lovely titles you can try. I need to read several titles more as well. ^^;

Yachi's P-Natsu ga Ippai was the first one I really read out of my own volition, and I suppose it changed me in the sense that I kind of blindly shrugged off shoujo and josei manga before it. I think the old school art really helps a lot, though. Both Yachi and Ikuemi have been around since the 80's, and it shows.
    By old school art, do you mean it is about the old graphic style, with big and sparkling eyes or something like that? XD I met some people who kind of push shoujo/josei because of that kind of art, though they actually have great plot. XD

    No, kind of the opposite, the kind you're thinking of is even older, whereas the 80's to 90's shoujo and josei I'm thinking of is more like Ai Yazawa stuff.

    Oh, I remember seeing those sparkly eyes! It is prejudicial, but I am somehow very particular with the style of drawing and if I don't like the same, I don't read it regardless of it having a good plot. I found it hard to read FMA at first, obviously in relation to what I have said, because I didn't quite like how it's drawn (despite my love for steampunk). I think I would like to read a few. What can you suggest?
