    Sorry for my tardiness in replying :

Fanservice (as in panty shots, accidental groping, and the likes) in my eyes is often a means for authors to cover up evident weaknesses in their story.
    Cheesy and over-the-top romances are no good for me either. I appreciate it when authors wanna tackle this major theme (i.e. love) which stands just about at the core of human life and our coexistence but please don't forget the realism in the process... Modern Japanese middle schoolers just ain't no knights in shining armor from the Middle Ages, dammit!
    Other than that, I've grown a bit tired of manga that feel like they were drawn by the book, i.e. feel stereotypical from beginning to end. (I mean these series that give you this feeling like you have read them or something closely similar dozens of times before, which feature characters without any memorable traits or designs and just generally have a stereotypical setup...)
    Ah, I think both of us have the same perspective on Manga, although lately I'm kinda loosening my standard and openly accept common stereotypes, except with panty shoots and boobies groping. In your opinion, what's the best romance manga ever created?

    and as an apology.. I give you:

    Uff... just like last time, once you forget to reply things start to pile up.

    True, we have lot's of info thanks to him. I can't beat native speakers unfortunatly. But to my credit he doesn't get much out of the Otaku Shoten, does he ? I contribute absolutely EVERYWHERE :-) (well except in naruto forum)

    Oh and it was funny at lunch, because we somehow discussed with colleagues about the old cartoons that were displayed on French TV (Cobra, Ken...) and they didn't believe me when I said it was published in the same magazine than Naruto. I immediatly thought to the recent discussion you had in the previous pages...
    Oh that would be lovely. I don't know too much about German chanson though. (Even though I once had to create a teaching project for German as a foreign language which revolved around German chanson and folk song! [I'm a minor for Intercultural German Studies at university.])
    I really like some old French music. Do you happen to know Christian Delagrange? My grandma loves his music and I still remember listening to some of his songs when I visited her when I was younger...

    Again, bravo et mes félicitations~
    Everything went well in the end and you managed to take that award home. - And so did I.

    Yeah, it's crazy... and wow, COBRA.
    I'd love to see that show again some time. I thought it was so cool how Terasawa modeled his title hero after the great Monsieur Belmondo~...

    Oh no need to apologize!
    As you can see I'm also quite prone to forgetting these kinda things, i.e. replying timely.

    Ohhhh~~~, great list. Nice variety, reasonable picks, nice ratio of modern titles and classics. Prince approves!
    One series that I would definitely have to add to my Top 10 is Morita-sensei's ROOKIES. I love, love, LOOOVE this manga so friggin much. It even challenges SLAM DUNK for the position of my Alltime Favorite Sport Series!

    Favorite Romance series, let me think about this for a minute... well, it's a little difficult when going for a full-fledged Romance manga. I'll just name three series that popped into my mind: Nodame Cantabile, Watashi-tachi no shiawase na jikan and Cross Game.
    Since they're all catering different demographics (i.e. Josei, Seinen, Shounen; although I really don't give anything to these kind of classifications) it's fair to name more than one. Especially since they are approaching the topic in so wonderfully different ways. -- How about you?

    And thanks for the Zou Bisou Bisou... I'll have to counter with my favorite silver-haired devil:

    Oh, you definitely should do that! Yeah, yeah, it's the same but with even stronger emphasis. (And minus the prominent element of comedy. I mean Sakuragi was a laughing stock and headbutted people in comic relief scenes...) The whole main cast is just a bunch of thugs who... well... f*ck around with their lives. They have nothing going for them and are stuck in a cage of the ever same daily routine. - This is some real amazing character development Morita pulls! I hardly know any other Shounen manga that can take it up with ROOKIES in that particular department.

    What I also just love about ROOKIES is the general tone and atmosphere. All of the main characters are heavy smokers (which is prohibited by law and school rules of course), curse a whole friggin lot and do lots of other shit (shoplifting, beating the crap out of others and even each other, relying on weapons in their little thug brawls, etc.). Heck, one of the early chapters even featured a quasi sex scene with one of the main characters who was fooling around with a chick in the club house.
    This is soooo~ unthinkable in these times where your usual JUMP series is just tuned down to the max...


    LOL, Dorakkun shows his mad German skillz!

    I didn't mean it that way.
    Lovely reaction, though.

    How was it meant, elaborate...

    And sure, I love cursing in German just as much as in English. Plus I don't have to fear to get a warning for doing so!

    And thanks, man. It's not really about arrogance though (admittedly, I can get a bit haughty at times...), but rather about taking pride in what you're good at. It's one of the things I consider a talent of mine so I don't really want others to talk bad about it, I guess. :/

    not a big deal as you aren't insulting someone else

    Was just joking Prince, I believe you are bodenständig ;P (nearly everyone is haughty at times XD). And I think I already told you that I like your texts~
