Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/6/14 - 10/12/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Hm, I have downloaded Antique Bakery but still need to watch it
Updated the rules and changed/added prefixes for the threads:
This should allow us to keep the yaoi talk out of the other sections ^^;Quote:
since im an extremely nice person, despite my laziness, i'm here eni-san!
and just so you know, im not going to read all those bold prefixe things......
btw, do any of you guys know when JR volume 12 is coming out???
Yay, there she is \o/
Junjou Romantica? Uhm... Volume 11 was just released at the beginning of December so I assume there won't be a new one till late spring :/
uggg, i cant wait that longg :[
I haven't read past volume... uhm... 3, I think. Personally I find the series a little boring and the art style isn't appealing much to me especially when I see that it's a fairly modern series. I'm much more tolerant with art style that strikes me as outdated like Fake, Kizuna or the early Gravitation.
Maybe I should read up a little again, also catch up with the anime... hmm... so much to do, so little time.

hmm, kizuna is good. and the story of JR is so cute and the art isnt that bad at all.
have you read this thing called Darling? i read the first volume and it was really good
yahh, that's it. have you read it?
of course i read it ^^ but imo it wasnt so great , it was worth reading but nothing more
and what about love mode or pretty long one Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishik this is what yaoi is about <3<3 mrr

Oh, and thank you for reminding me on Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishik. Still need to continue it <3
Though, I have to admit I needed to struggle through the first two volumes too. You can clearly see that the mangaka wasn't sure about the story in the beginning and the old art style doesn't help either. It becomes really good when it moves from short situations to the long story arc, around volume four, I think. And the art style improves a lot as well, it makes a huge jump to the better over the year (see her recent series: Border).
The character interaction is wonderful and deep in the later volumes, I really feel with every single person and the mangaka creates a lot of incredible sweet situations with wonderfuuul panels. If I would need to compare it to other longer series, it's definitive better than Viewfinder and Haru wo Daite Ita. None of these two make me care for the characters much. They focus mainly on creating situations for sex while Kizuna goes more into the romantic, carrying direction like Fake although it has a steady and sexual active main couple from the start and therefor provides the 'fanservice' that Fake was missing in the middle ^^
More series like this, I say! More!

well i have to read kizuna ( i only watched some ova if i remember clearly) and it looked somehow weird so i didnt touch the manga .. but propably in weekend i'll try to read it
well the Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishik few first volumes looked weird too (its a shame on me that i kept it for so long without reading)
another good oine is Koi no Tsumeato ( even thought the uke is most annoying one i've seen so far)
They're always out of context, weird and overall worse than the original. Especially boys love OVAs since they're just extended DramCDs (extended = video added >.>). Plus they're way to short to get known to the characters. It's much more enjoyable to watch them after you familiarized with them already
in Koi no Tsumeato the only one i liked was Ao <3 even thought he wasnt so pure and all but you just couldnt dislike him ...
and another one i dont like in is the ending

yeah, definitely, do NOT watch the OVAs first. that's what i did and i was like, "okay, im not going to read the manga." but because of eni-chan and kaylee-chan, i just got to read it and it was awesome!!!
