Like your sig said, I came here to ask you anything, Teeba, but I'll keep it Beelzebub related for now
So, how'd you first get into Beelzebub?
I have a question, How did you get interested in manga at the first place?
First of all, I'd like to thank Zatono and Doraku for posting in the Beelzebub forum and adding to its activity.
I heard about Beelzebub when it first came out thinking it was hella original, but I didn't get into it because it was too new. Then, I think one of my friends at DGraydivinity Forums (now defunct) re-introduced it to me about a year later. At first I didn't follow it regularly, but when En was introduced it made the manga a whole lot gutsier for me.
I got interested in manga when I began to lose interest in its anime counterpart. I really liked Inuyasha, and when my Chinese bootleg DVD set were too scratched up for me to finish the series, I discovered it was actually based off of a manga.
When I found scanlations for it I didn't even read it from the beginning, and I missed a good 200 chapters in the middle because it was difficult to locate where all the chapters were.
From there, I just grew to love it. I loved the ensemble cast of Inuyasha, I love bishonen, and I loved Japanese folklore, so I began to search and buy manga that were similar to it.

I read (some of) Inuyasha too, it was popular back then when I was in Junior High School, but recently big 3 manga are more popular here and suddenly I never hear about Inuyasha again ( up until you mentioned it now) . It's interesting that you said you like Japanese folklores. I think I knew Japanese folklore before I got introduced with Manga, but I had no idea it was from Japan. My mother used to read those stories before I sleep ( stories like Urashimataro, Momotaro, etc.)
When is your sister's marriage?

This is a hot topic in our house right now, sorry for the blunt answer.
Understood. You just can't decide on a whim. So many things to consider.
Haha, of course. One has to consider many aspects like availability of wedding hall / arena, relatives, any other occasions in the family etc.
Exactly. Actually, a bigger problem is whether or not we should do the Nikah separately, for the same reasons your sister did, or do it together with the Shaadi and then wait afterwards for the paperwork to be completed. Family members is also an issue, considering Kuwait currently doesn't issue visas to Pakistanis. >_<
It's been so long, but if I think about it Inuyasha and the Big 3 did have a kind of fandom rivalry going on. I remember my sister rage-quit Inuyasha and began watching Bleach because of the love triangle...I'm sure a lot of people in your middle school did the same! Love triangles and ship wars are srs bznz!
Are you a folklore/mythology fan? What are some favorites? I am really only well versed in European folk tales, and not necessarily well versed in that.Quote:
Inuyasha ended almost four years ago, I'm not sure that fans new to manga are as aware of it. While it was ongoing Inuyasha certainly felt like one of the more popular series.Quote:
I rage quit Inuyasha too. Shortly after Sesshoumaru got the sword and arm that were in him all along.
Noblesse's art is beautiful, though rigid. I've heard great things about Kenichi but the premise didn't really hook me when I read it.

That's for me to know and for you to find out. :cookiemonster
...but now if I think about it, I don't think I know the names to most of the tales I know. I really like Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and I also like Rikki Tikki Tavi even though its not really a folktale. Oh, and Ramayana, from India. That's a classic, and I'm sure if you read it (or an abbreviated version) you'd like it. It's an epic save-the-damsel kind of story, with a twist ending full of douchebaggery.
Then there's Devi Mahatmya, which is about the most badass goddess ever, Durga. Just look at her:
