Not as far as I know. A favorite blonde thread would be fun, if you want to start a thread. Even if there were a thread no one should ever worry about starting a duplicate thread. I'd rather members start threads and (worst case) have to merge them than not start threads at all. Currently it seems that no one starts threads, which makes me sad. In all honesty a thread would have to be obviously identical for me to feel inclined to merge. As long as it is just different enough to sustain a separate conversation I would not even bother merging, no matter how similar.
Hm it seems like there could be a thread called something like: Characters Hair Styles which would be a general discussion, there was one I believe, but since this is your FAVORITE it might be a different conversation, but blonds and dark haired characters deserve to get some attention.
Maybe favorite Hair color thread, but that limits the discussion, a wider discussion would involve if the threads were apart. I just feel weird starting for both blonds and dark haired ones separately, yet combining them and leaving red-haired ones out is also weird.
Don't feel weird! Members are always encouraged to create threads, and as Kaiten has said, threads will only be merged if it's identical to another. If there was a second red-hair thread, we'll merge the two but the blonde and dark-hair threads can be left separately.
I'm currently reading -Hitogatana-. Was this manga shouted out before? if not,then its definitely worth it.
I featured it a while back, I can't exactly remember when. Last winter maybe. Good manga, a very enjoyable action series.
Yeah, actually the shoutout was what made me read Hitogana. was epic.
It's been a while since a new chapter has come out, sadly. But it is one of the better off the radar shounen action I have read.
Yeah, need more series lol I'm like running out.
Thanks Kait, it's hard to find good stuff these days
Anyone familiar with a scanlator who might be interested in completing a couple of mangas from kaju hajime...luck stealer and mind assassin? These two deserve to have complete scanlations imo.
Hm ... did I get this right?
"Shounen", "Shoujo", "Seinen", "Yosei" - these aren't actually "real" genres but more like a description of a target market (both age and gender specific), and each story of these "group names" can cover one or more of the "classic genres" (comedy, tragedy, action, erotic)
(Which is probably why I'm enjoying RRR and Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru while reading Ryuushika Ryuushika at the same time?)
That is correct. Shounen, seinen, shoujo, and josei refer to the age and gender of the target audience of a magazine, rather than genre of the series. All that matters is what magazine a series is from, not the content. Thus Claymore is shounen in spite of the graphic violence, while Chi's Sweet Home is seinen despite the fluffy kitty. This is because Claymore is in the shounen magazine Jump SQ while Chi's Sweet Home is in the seinen magazine Morning. Shounen, seinen, shoujo, and josei actually indicate where on the shelf a store displays a magazine and what is advertised between the manga.
In short, demographic. Then from each demographic you get different genres.
