MY TASTES IN ANIMANGA/MANHWA:

Currently I’m mostly into the shoujo genre of manga, but my tastes tend to fluctuate pretty often, so this is subject to change. Also have a deep weakness for mecha anime, so there may be posts on that genre here. Shounen series will be featured very minimally in my blog at this time because, to be honest, I’m throughly saturated on shounen right now and can’t look at a single shounen troupe without mocking it. Sorry, shounen fans. I was once one too, but right now me and shounen need a break . An extremely long break that won’t end for a while. =/

Stuff I like in my animanga~

  • GirlxGirl friendship bonding stories!! =D (why should only the guys always have their friendship story fun?)
  • Family dysfunctional stories. preference for sibling interactions. =D
  • strong/smart female leads
  • LOTS AND LOTS OF CHARACTER INTERACTIONS AND DIALOGUE
  • comedy!!
  • sf/f elements, including the supernatural. alternate universe and time travel is cool too. and mythology!! <333
  • *~forbidden love~* particularly those star-crossed types, on two different sides of the war, etc, and love/hate relationships
  • Simple ~*pure love*~ type romance one-shot manga. (yes, they’re cheesy, but they’re CUTE!)
  • Pretty Art. Art must be pretty, or I won’t read it. for srly.
  • Giant robots of death piloted by mentally imbalanced teenagers with orders to save the world/participate in war/fight aliens, etc. With dramatic background music and melodrama. WHAT CAN I SAY, IT AMUSES ME TO NO END.
  • … Sports manga. With preference for strong female leads as athletes, but manga world seems to think of this request like I’m trying to shoot to to moon or something…

Stuff I don’t like/cannot stand in my animanga:

  • LOVE TRIANGLES. HOMG HOW I HATE LOVE TRIANGLES. Especially the two guys fighting over the girl type, with skeevy power imbalance thrown in. ><“””””””
  • NO HAREM. NOT EVEN REVERSE HAREM. HAREM = SUCK
  • Same with ecchi/hentai. THE SUCK
  • girls playing for cutesy, aka what seems to be generally accepted as ‘moe’. It annoys me.
  • ABUSIVE MALE LEADS. aka Hot Gimmick type. IT’S JUST WRONG, SO WRONG.
  • Spineless girls. Or, as I like to call them, doormats. Seriously, I’d just like a girl with A WILL OF HER OWN, kthxbye.
  • No sports/cooking series. I just… Can’t get hyped over whether or not they win a cooking competition, okay? it reminds me too much of stereotypical MUSTBENUMBERONE!!! shounen troupes.
  • No incest. it just squicks me in all the wrong places. Or, really large power/age imbalance in romantic relationships. They make me squirm.
  • Makeover stories. The sublime messages usually found in those types of stories MAKE ME ANGRY.
  • Episodic series. I like long arcs. =/
  • Ugly Art. This deserves a bullet of its own.

Of course, all these points come with exceptions, but this is the gist of it, lulz. =D

Also, my top 3 favourite mangakas (in no particular order): kaori yuki, midorikawa yuki, matsomoto tomo
