completed Himizu - thanks for that explanation on the concept of deconstruction

Could you send me a link as to where to read it please?
Alakorad2 Feb 12, 6:28 AM
is the manga all completed?

I see that you've read the manga Claudine, I was wondering if you could tell me where you've read it?
UknwWhu Nov 20, 2017 12:02 AM
Ok Cool. Nice explanation. I will apply it to my reading of Himizu later.

Cheers

Hi read your Himizu review. I have a problem. Mind explaining deconstruction to me. In isolation and in relation to the manga?

Oh, I see you're planning to read Lovely Complex.

Did you watch anime? It sticks closely to the manga, so either one is okay to read/watch, but I think anime is better, because it has more stuff, like a fitting soundtrack, and also the Japanese seiyuu (voice actors) are AMAZING! At least I felt all the emotions of the main characters clearly expressed in their voices.

Yup, that was my favorite part of the manga as well. See all the supporting characters mature later on in the story was very interesting too. Hopefully sales will pick back up and well get an ova adaptation or something in the future. Its one of my favorites so far and probably will be for the rest of my existence.

Oh yea I didn't recognize him. That's when he became older and was sold into slavery. What a great character he is. It's a brilliant manga.

Is that Thorfinn in your profile picture?

I just read your review of "Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan", and I have to say - I wasn't happy, so forgive me for the rude comment I am going to make: I think that maybe your heart is made of something hard and cold, because when I was reading it, I spend 90% crying throughout the story. And I mean, it was horrible, because it's hard to read a manga, when tears are blocking my vision - but all the tears were worth it, because I felt so great after I was done reading it.

As for the strongest point of the manga, I think it was the unexpected development, but although unexpected it was very well-balanced, so nothing felt out of place, and I think that's the reason why it was so emotional - it reminded me a lot of the real life - the life that we humans live in, which is also a balance of bad things and good things, sadness and happiness, beginnings and endings, and so on.

Redemption is nice, but it is called Thomas no Shinzou (metaphorical redemption) or Zankoku na Kami ga Shihai suru (more concrete).

In fact, I was expecting something similar to Zankoku, and I tended to compare the two during my reading.

The first main difference is the time alloted to the "oppression phase" at the start, far superior in Zankoku. And in both manga, it is my favorite part.
The second main difference is that during the oppression phase, you follow the oppressed person, not the oppressor.
Then you have the second phase, the redemption one, and here again, Zankoku focus first on the oppressed character, but then switch to the oppressor… well, his successor more exactly.
But in the end, the two characters find themselves in a closed space, separated from the world, and somehow we're able to follow the two characters at the same time.


A great character development, not much digression to secondary characters to increase the chapters count. You're able to see the POV of the two main protagonists, everything is dealt with seriousness, and no silly things like the movie stuffs.
Plus heavy symbolism and good dramatization, with that you're able to feel the emotions and sentiment far better.

Can't help but to think that KoK looks like a trashy dime-store story by comparison.

Well, I'm somehow in the opposite situation that you : I don't really know what to read. へへ’
I read J no Subete out of randomness, it was in my PTR list since a long time, someone recommended it to me without real explanation. In fact, if I knew it was about a trans', I would have read it sooner, but since I though it was a yaoi with a cross-dresser, I somehow procrastinated it.

And Yup, I read Koe no Katachi. The one-shot was rather enjoyable, but not the series.

Dunno, it wasn't what I expected, I guess. Everything is so easy, so simple, so smooth, no frustration, no real development either : at the end of the manga, I didn't feel any sense of completion at all.
Sure there were some few interesting passages here and there, especially the beginning that followed the one-shot. But most of it was boring or tiresome to me. I was particularly sick when I saw that movie thing, I was "oh no, not that thing again!", those group projects out of nowhere just to fill the blank and give excuse to put all characters together… I dunno why I was especially sick of it in that specific manga.

Hey!

If you're still bored and still interested by the portrayal of trans' in manga, I have two new ones that I enjoyed quite a lot:
Yuureitsou. Most of it is a mystery manga with some horror elements. The secondary MC is a FtM trans', there is also a MtF that appears near the end. If the gender bender elements are introduced quite early, they really matters in the 3 last volumes or something like that. Before them, most of the content is focused on the plot, with only few GB hints here and there.
J no Subete. At first I though it was a yaoi since that's mainly how it is presented, but in fact the MC is a MtF. A little warning : there is graphical sex scenes in it.

Yup, we seem to have some interests in common, even if we don't necessarily evaluate them in the same way. And even then I don't really understand why MAL consider that we have a compatibility at -42%. I have a friend for which I also don't understand why we have a very bad compatibility. >.>


P.S. I did notice an omission from your list that I thought surprising. If you haven't already, I think you should give 'Himegoto: Juukyuusai no Seifuku' a try. It involves quite a bit of LGBT themes, including transgender, and I thought it was a pretty good manga.


Wow.
Just wow.
I don't know how I never heard of that manga. oO
Because yes, it seems quite interesting!

Though, I'll wait before starting to read it. I really don't like reading on going manga, and I already have too much of them in my tastes. >.>
But I have to try it yes, either when the scanlation will be complete, or when I finished most of my current "on going" manga.

Thank you for that one. Really. へへ
