Sorry for my tardiness in replying :
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?Originally Posted by Mr.Prince
and as an apology.. I give you:
Uff... just like last time, once you forget to reply things start to pile up.
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~...
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:
What do you want here?

Just for you.
Ich bin verfickter Teilzeit-Journalist, Germanistikstudent und habe schon Schreibwettbewerbe gewonnen! Ich wehre mich vehement gegen etwaige Vorwürfe, ich sei ein Meister der Flachwitze.
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!

Busted by one of the few German speaking staffers... xD
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. :/
