Mary Sue is not the same as bitch. If you know OreImo the attitude of the imouto towards her brother, at least up till late in the series, is what GodlyKyon means for "bitch" I think.

All the discussion makes me wonder how much Mahouka GoldyKyon knows and how much OreImo Superfaraway knows.

Imma gonna start digging, don't sorry about it, didn't have time t look Mahouka before...

If you have seen OreImo season 1 then you already know what he meant by "bitch". Remember how Kirino treated his brother? In S1 you did not get to see her brocon side most of the time, right? Her rough and insufferable attitude towards her brother is what GodlyKyon meant by "bitch" I would say.


then i should wait for GodlyKyon clarification.
if that's the meaning of " bitch" i should say he is Wrong.

Symbv was right, being perfect doesn't necessarily mean a bitch to the bro. Though Mary Sues may be irritating in circumstances, they could be goddesses(very nice people) as well

Mod Edit: Please do not double post.

What fhe phuck? Mahouka has the same character premise as Oreimo, not this shit again.


Siscon & Incest ?

Not only that, But a sister that is an overachiever, with a loser brother and a bad relationship... She ia obviously the main heroine as per rule of first heroine


actually sister is MARY SUE and her brother is a GARY STU. i assume you don't like marysue and garystu stuff. am i right ?

That depends on how they're portrayed... Is the mouto a bitch also?


you don't know the story or what ?

the brother is one of the Strongest person in the Novel.

most people don't like GARY STU , so i understand you.

what do you mean ? i assume you mean MARY SUE ? yes she is also mary sue.

I've seen series like worst and crows consistently make the top japanese sales lists, but nobody outside of Japan seems to know it even exists.


because the manga scanlation is slow and not complete
Those people translating and typesetting for free aren't working hard enough... sheesh.


don't blame them for not knowing this series outside japan. and don't blame the translator too.
luckily in my country, Crows already release till volume 24
I am not blaming the free translators. I wish they would release these things properly outside of Japan so people could read it and the translators could get paid...

Shingeki may have been on fire, but I guess not even it can overtake the King, huh? Well, who am I kidding, One Piece is never gonna be overtaken.

I'm also so happy to see Shokugeki no Souma doing so well. I've started reading the manga only recently and I practically devoured it.
For the more recent manga in Shounen Jump, it is practically a race between Souma and Ansatsu on which one gets anime adaptation first ;-)


Shokugeki is more likely to get one earlier. As an ecchi, it stands a chance above Ansatsu for the first spot. I'm thinking maybe an year, an year and half in to it's serialisation will be enough material for a one cour season. Ansatsu could also do similar, though studios might wanna milk it a bit more by waiting a bit longer since it sells so much more than Shokugeki.

A few do. Like me :P
Crows is really good. I read it when there was around 80 chaps out and put it on hold. Now I'm waiting until it ends.

What's sad is that months before I read Crows, I read Worst. I stopped reading for whatever reason and later started reading Crows without realizing they were connected. Then I was like... this all sounds familiar! :O And yea... connected the dots. :P
It's a good series, I just gots to be in the right mood to read it. I also want to read the other sequel... :D

If you like those, try Rookies. It has the same style and is also really great. I wish more of these types of mangas got translated. :(
