For anyone out of the loop about the seed counting. It's a very very old tale that vampires would count seeds if they stumbled upon them, for instance the Chinese jiangshi would count rice so leaving a sack of rice would give you time to get away.
It basically fell out of common knowledge when the modern vampire lore was being made up.
Just like the Count in Sesame Street. ;)
1,231 is an awful lot of maniacal laughter and lightning.
Gotta say, those are the least threatening monsters I've seen in manga in a long time.
Not fast moving, vulnerable to physical attack, their only real defense is that they produce a creepy sound. So someone standing back with a sniper rifle could take them out no problem, or even regular troops with noise-cancelling headphones. It's honestly a surprise they haven't all been wiped out already.
Sorry, I thought there were more than 20 chapters. But yes, it was Kimi Koi Limit. Thank you both.
Actually there is another manga I can‘t find anymore. It‘s about a superficial girl who wants to become an idol or compete in a beauty pageant or win some kind of popularity contest or something like that (can‘t remember). She gets saved from a pervert by some delinquent chick on a train and at the end they become a couple and the superficial girl stops giving a shit about beauty pageants etc. I remember the delinquent girl wearing a face mask most of the time.
It‘s a vague description, but does somebody know it?
Looking for one where a girl has feelings for her friend who she presumes is straight, they basically end up having casual sex and afterwords, the sentiment isn't really that the girl loves her back, but something along the lines of her never considering the option before but was considering it now.
Not sure about this, but the friend may have either been seeing someone else very casually at the same time or was just someone who slept around a bit.
Though I write a lot myself, I unfortunately don't have the commitment or energy to finish a lot of the stories I get ideas for.
One idea I've been toying with for many years, but never actually put to paper, is a light fantasy story of a young woman being shipwrecked somewhere on a southern continent, where she is found by the young head priestess of a nearby village. The story would focus on their feelings for each other deepening as they slowly learn to communicate with each other. (Idea originally inspired by Nation - Terry Pratchett)
I'd honestly be happy if the whole one-word character description thing died off anyway, given how much it encourages stereotyping characters and not looking deeper into them. Even just expanding it to "shy and defensive" helps a little, because then you're not just going "okay, I know what a tsundere is" and looking a bit more into why they're so shy and what they're defensive about.
She's a classic tsundere, no hitting, no abusing at all
How is that a classic tsundere?
The idea is actually not that bad, it could have potential.
Well, the classic before they make the "hitting and abusing" tsundere classic. Gosh I miss them
Joking aside, I understand what you mean completely. Tsundere originally was supposed to be hostile towards mc and only after warming up to them and falling for them, they would show them their genuine loving side. It of course still could happen rarely and take a lot effort and embarrassment from tsundere, but at this point she would visibly become nicer to mc. Sadly somewhere along the line the version where she constantly flips between loving and hating become popular and we are stuck with it as default.
I always assumed that one of the classic tsundere models was the female lead from Love Hina, and oh BOY was she all about the hitting and abusing. Was there a classic model prior to that?
Not that I'm a big fan of the abusive tsundere model or anything, and it sucks that a generation of lazy writers have used tsundere as an entire character description rather than a trait. But still, I think at least slapstick violence has been pretty common in the idea all along.
Looking for one where a girl finds her classmate out in the rain lying on the ground but the classmate says she's part rain woman or something. The classmate is in love with a teacher if i remember right
Okay that's pressuring (not what I intended) but it's not that fucking rude, stop being a prude ass. It's reasonable for reader to wonder what happen with translation especially series this good and the raw is gotten so far. Again I am not trying to get disrespectful to the translator. I'm just casual reader wondering what happens with translation.
And that's fucking rude enough to earn you a temp ban. Keep it up when you come back and I'll make it permanent for you.
Badgering scanlators for the next release is NOT welcome here, and neither is acting like an asshole to other members.
Enough, already. Morgan, I deleted your post and will continue to delete any post from anyone that keeps dragging up the tag issue in this discussion.
This is not the place for it. You're already discussing it over in the other thread, there's absolutely no excuse to bring it back here again, especially when you've already been clearly told to knock it off.
Morgan, leave it be. Site policy and the ability to hide tags has already been confirmed, and unless there's some change there's little point in beating that horse. dpf has already confirmed that things like rape and the more blatant triggers are already tagged as a matter of course.
If you cannot trust the site or the author, you are absolutely free to not read either. Although the option of reading the discussion before you read the story is open to you as well, which will usually point out things that are not tagged.
In any case, there is zero point in continuing this discussion after everyone has said their piece multiple times and policy has been confirmed by the person who administers it, again multiple times. So can we all refocus the discussion on the actual story at hand, please?
That said, I don't understand why some yuri fans are so strongly anti het. Really, should the most important aspect of a relationship be that there's genuine chemistry to the romance- regardless of the genders?
Maybe because of the older Class S stuff where lesbian girl always get cucked by a male love interest / arranged marriage / suicide / sharknado in the end...? Thankfully we don't see that so often anymore.
And it's always a sharknado made of male sharks, you ever notice that?
