My Ratings FYI are utter crap - I started this account almost 3 years ago, and I've definitely matured as a watcher, so many of the things i enjoyed then - i doubt i would even half as enjoy if i saw them anew currently. CBA to change them so will have to deal i guess?
I got into anime and manga only a few years ago, when I got hooked on anime from watching 1 episode bleach and must have finished the entire series in about a week :D Then I got into manga later on when there wasn't enough reverse harem for me lol.
Well feel free to leave a comment or recommendation. I'm generally don't care about genres, but I do tend to steer away from anything horror related - two reasons: really dislike horror in real life and horror in anime is tbh not great :/ Plz not hate. Either way : Peace out!
Oh and I really enjoy webtoons-my favourites include:
Cheese in the Trap (ongoing)
Diamond Dust and
I really recommend Cheese in the Trap (less so the kdrama) and Diamond dust to those who want a serious read, Diamond Dust is a lot more serious and has a more sombre tone, but both are brilliant reads
Because of restrictions etc, I cannot express my full love for all the manga and anime i find awesome so here are a few more if anyone visits and does by some chance read this these are the manga I will recommend regardless of your taste-if I haven't mentioned many big names in these genres it's because it's either probably already been watched/read by you or speaks enough by itself:
100% Perfect Girl (so intense and unexpected (you wouldn't expect from the blurb given) but it has it's sweet moments and her drawings are awesome they're really pretty like they came out of an artist's sketchbook, she really conveys the delicateness of Jay's personality)
Beauty Pop (straight up hilarious I <3 Kiri Koshiba's reactions, or rather lack of reaction)
Akatsuki no Yona (beautiful but fierce heroine that totally deserves her own anime_CORRECTION: is getting her own anime comedy levels are high and character relations are awesome)
Skipbeat (interesting story: and originally watched as an anime; wonderful character development)
Cheese in the trap (a realistic and moving webtoon that keeps me on my toes ;P )
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (ok second manga i read: just to mix it up i'll throw in this gender bender it's your stereotypical gender bender shoujo BUT it's done in such good quality that it doesn't seem cheesy and will keep you reading to the very end) [here's another gender thats good: Power!!!]
Yamada kun to 7 nin no Majo & Yankee Kun-to Megane Kun (the lather was the first manga I evr read after I was heartbroken when i realized they hadn't done an anime of it yet ending's a bit anti-climatic (im not gonna lie) but still I've reread my favourite parts a million times) the other manga is just as good and has kept me coming back for me each time the translators release a new chapter)
Hirunaka no Ryuuse(she's a fresh type of heroine, i.e. one that seems to realize what she wants.... it's slow paced but will still keep you reading this manga relies more on it's character profiles than the story, and in turn the characters enhance the plot line)
Tonari no Kaibutsu Kun: (LOVE THE ANIME LOVE THE MANGA-AMAAAAZZZZING CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT have this manga permanently saved to my laptop so whenever im bored i can read it whenever it'll move you and it'll set the bar for most other romantic manga you read)
Totally Captivated: (awesome plot line and hate-love relationship between a ganster (although he calls himself a businessman) and a college student-artwork is cute and long enough to keep you reeled in-also plenty of extras)
Kouun no Rihatsusushi (opposite of the Totally captivated a manga wholey based on the sweet sweet relationship these two guys have)
Doushitemo Furetakunai (I really enjoyed this manga, it's heart moving has an ACTUAL plot and will ease you in slowly by the end you'll realize how perfect this phrase is for it: short but sweet)
Junketsu Drop (it has no one shots in this, it only has one couple and they are sooooooo CUTE you'll love this if you want a break from all the smut dominated yaoi this manga really nabs all the shoujo sterotypes read it and you'll understand )
Kikoenai Koe(incredibly cute, it's shounen-ai and the character development is good-love the back story of it being a baseball club-it's incredibly adorable-fluffy feelings)
Rakka Sokoudo: (this manga defies all the normal stereotypes of how a seme and a uke would be like in my opinion it's a good one-less passion than most but when reading it, it's like a boat floating along)
Nichijousahan Bi-Beautiful life-again (only a few chapters long but it's good for a little relief and the relationship is so casual and homely that you'll feel like this manga has had a proper ending)
Koi To Wa Yobenai(I'm always looking out for longer series so I can learn more about the couple and this manga was ideal for that, this couple was sweet-and the length of the manga was brilliant it gave enough time to realistically allow the couple to grow closer whilst giving I the reader enough time to savour each chapter HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
Bukiyou na silent (cute, oh soooo very cute: but maybe lacking depth none the less reasonably lengthy and still publishing and the artwork is rather adorable as well)
Ansatsu KyoushitsuHilarious, the MAL profile does a fine job of describing the plot line but until you read it you won't comprehend the level of ludcricy and comedy within it
Itsuwaribito Utsuho oh liar liar pants on fire!!!!! Hollla or whatever, one of the first manga i read outside of the realms of romance, it kept me reeled in to the last chapter translated. it's a read for a intermediate manga reader who can single out the qualities that make it an amazin' shounen manga-funny-heart breaking it'll take you to lofy highs and bring you down to reasonably low lows it's witty and fast paced give it a try...
Koe no Katachi I'm a little unsure as to whether this manga belongs in my shojou seciton or here, but i decided on it being in here as it deals with a few heavy issues such as intensive guilt and suicide etc. a interesting read that will have you begging for the character to resolve his issues as he comes to term with his past and present actions
Tonari no Seki-kunjust funny, just so random and funny and the chapters are short so they can be enjoyed very quickly. Read the MAL profile, and if confused make sure to read. ;P
And here are some anime that I recommend:
Durarara!! (highly intelligent anime that stimulates the brain where the character developemnt is exquisite-there are characters with questionable morals and it is narrated from a neutral point that allows you to see both points of the argument-an anime that will leave you thinking about what is really right and what's wrong)
D-GrayMan(a bigger Shounen anime than most others, but not nearly hitting the peaks of Naruto and Bleach but do not DENY yourself this little beauty-it's got an interesting concept of how they fight and will leave you asking why is this anime not as big as others)
Chihayafuru (this anime is a sports anime-ok? It may not look as flashy as say Prince of Tennis but it'll have you moved and rocks all the stereotypes of any decent sports anime and this anime is more than decent-the sports is deeply traditional Japanese but it makes for a nice change in gears)
Eyeshield 21(this anime too is a sports anime, and features a typical underdog with a unique skill of some sort that allows him to stand out-ive yet to read the manga thus it's continuation but i'll say this i didn't simply rewatch it for the heck of it-its a good anime with a great plot)
Yugioh (ORIGINAL)(I heavily emphasis-watch the original before any other simply because its the best of the series I think you will find very few who can deny that truth-if your opinions differ feel free to drop a comment but I recommend any manga or anime fan to watch this anime regardless of your taste to understand how far anime has come and how anime back then was and how amazing it's origin and transformation has been)
Danganropa(I've been watching anime long enough to have broadened my horizons although they're still far too narrow in my opinion it'll be a while before i stop, anyway this genre of anime is more along the lines of horror-it's got a simple plot honestly, but it's twists and the twisted humor behind it is enough to have kept me watching all 12 episodes and on top of that the way that each episode ends is creative enough to keep me entertained it's not gory at all but it will shock you and keep you relatively tense that you feel slightly queasy imagining yourself in their position)
Itazura na Kiss(This anime is cute and although you may doubt it from the initial few episodes and how the main couple acts it will make you feel incredibly satisfied and happy by the end of it-the anime's story spans a few years so it'll leave you feeling like it has had a proper end)
Kimi ni Todoke(It's sweet and the main character is your stereotypical shy girl who actually falls for a NICE guy as opposed to a badass which is traditional because who doesn't love it when the girl falls for a bad guy-although this anime & manga has a focus on romance it also delves into issues like friendship and belief in oneself-like i said Good Anime)
Ouran School High School Host Club (This anime is for YET another change in genre is Reverse harem- it's probably one of the more better done reverse harems where not every guy has to get it on with the main character such as Diabolic lover AVOID The main characters a slightly boyish type and whose reactions will keep you entertained. Another manga that falls into the same genre is...........)
Yamato Nadashiko Shichihenge(this anime is based on a slightly gloomy girl who is entertaining in her own way but when rationalized (as in if she were real) she would probably be considered annoying which is a big risk of all shojou protagonists but I feel that this anime has done her justice and quite frankly so has the manga .
