Riddle me this: why doesn't Teen Ink have a category for manga/anime reviews? They've tacked on video games, but not this industry that has been growing and expanding in the US for the last two decades? WTH?! Thousands and thousands of American teenagers are fans of manga and anime, so why doesn't Teen Ink take reviews for it? Would anyone else like to see manga and anime reviews sometime soon?



(And because I've tiring of all the Twilight chit-chat in this forum, what's y'all's favorite manga and anime? I'm a big Fullmetal Alchemist fan, but CLAMP owns my soul.)

They should have a manga section! I totally agree!



Oh and I love Chobits! Still looking for more manga, I'm going to the library tomorrow. (;

Chobits is actually one of my least favorite CLAMP series, along with Wish. My top five CLAMPs are:



1. "xxxHolic"

2. "Tokyo Babylon"

3. "Cardcaptor Sakura"

4. "Tsubasa: RC"

5. tie between "X" and "Legal Drug"



Good luck with your manga hunt!

You must understand that putting up a new category on a site as structured at this will take time, but perhaps it will appear as if by magic some sunny day and cause us all to brighten up a bit. That's about fifteen articles right there for me...





Honestly, I've never heard of CLAMP. Forgive me for my ignorance... I've just gotten over an obsession with Yu Yu Hakusho, and I think I'm moving on to Bleach and Trinity Blood. Yes, Trinity Blood...but I'm also a Narutard and Trigunner...and I know a thing or two about FMA and Her Majesty's Dog. And my cousins will eventually tie me down long enough to watch copious amounts of Vampire Knight and Shugo Chara.

I know that it would take forever to put a new category up, but I was really hoping that they were going to add it on when they unveiled the brand-spanking new site... only to be totally disappointed, LOL.



Never heard of CLAMP?! Seriously? They've been around for 20 years and are super prolific- they written in pretty much every genre there is. I'm willing to bet that you've seen or at least heard of something of theirs and didn't realize it.



Ah, but Yu Yu Hakusho is fun! I'm not big on vampire manga, and I've never been able to get myself into Bleach or Naruto, (tried both, got aggravated with the snail-speed of the plot and general this-is-never-going-to-end-ness). I'm going to have to encourage you to read/watch more FMA, especially the new series. FMA is easily the all-time favorite...

I like Death Note too, though I do prefer the anime over the manga, which is strange for me. Ever read Bakuman? It's by DN's creators, but is totally different.



Right now, I'm reading Kuroshitshuji (gothic and goofy alternate universe Victorian England), Nabari no Ou (modern-day ninja manga, but with shoujo themes, not like Naruto at all...), and thinking about trying Pandora Hearts.

TT_TT Aw, man. Let me guess, you all live in metropolitan areas, or at least have malls (or fast internet access) near you? Now I wish that I lived with the major populations... But I'm going to one soon and shall research what I can of the aforementioned series! *thumbs up* Ah, the lamentations of a backwoods Shonen Jump addict...
