manga i recommend

I’ve seen a few people complaining that Yurio acted “selfishly” when he made the decision to include Otabek in his routine in order to make his routine more shocking than Yuuri’s and Victor’s pair skate. After reading the whole manga [which I highly recommend you read, if you haven’t yet], I decided I wanted to give my opinion on Yurio’s choice:

Do I think Yurio made those changes for the sole purpose of spiting Victuuri? No, not at all. Yurio worked hard on a routine that would shock people and make them realize who he really is so they would stop enforcing the idea that he’s an “innocent fairy” when he never wanted to be seen as that. He was worried that, if he stuck to doing routines that he didn’t enjoy and were the opposite of who he really is, his career would be unfulfilling and possibly even end badly. So he was understandably worried that, after the effort he’d put in, the most important routine for him could possibly be pushed aside or at least appreciated less because of Victor and Yuuri’s undeniably flawless pair skate. Don’t get me wrong, I adore them and their pair skate, but I don’t think Yurio was selfish at all for being upset about it. The manga clearly showed how desperate he was to blow everyone away and make his debut on the ice as the REAL Yuri Plisetsky - badass, edgy and not existing for the sole purpose of pleasing others. It was a huge night for him, and anyone would be determined to be the best in a situation like that, so he made an impulse decision to go all-out and leave his reputation as a “prima ballerina” behind him.

Side note: I also want to add that, regardless of whether they’re friends or not, Yurio and Yuuri are COMPETITORS. In what world is a professional athlete “selfish” for wanting to be better than their competition? That’s how competitive sports works, whether the competitors are friends or not.

(p.s. please try to avoid causing arguments in the replies section. I simply wanted to state my opinion and if you disagree with it then you’re more than welcome to ignore this post and keep scrolling)

Froggy’s Sports Manga Recc List!!!

as a quick excuse EXPLANATION: I generally don’t like sports manga.  And despite the domination of series such as Haikyuu, Kuroko and Daiya in the current anime/manga fan landscape, I like to imagine that there are others that are like me….  others who find sports manga tedious for a variety of reasons.

And thus, this list was born out of me doing backflips around the definition of what counts as a “sport.”  Basically, it came down to this: if the manga takes on a structure that is standard of a sports manga, or people are competing for something, I decided it was a sport!!!

Additionally, I tried to find manga that subverted a major thing that I don’t like about sports manga, and that is a complete lack of female characters.  You can expect most of these titles to have a strong presence of female characters in the plot (purely fueled by my bitterness at how much of a misogynist furudate is) !!!!

Anyways, titles and basic explanations under the cut!

vgviktuuri  asked:

So ah, you have a rec list or something? :D

There are a lot of BL mangas I like and would recommend. I kind of put the mangas and mangaka into these categories:

Adorable, fluffy and more or less drama-free love stories:

Some or lots of angst/drama/tragedy:

Non-con or abuse (mostly not b/w the main pairing):

Lots of really hot sex:

This list is def incomplete so I will probably expand it whenever I remember or find someone new. I hope you read and enjoy at least some of these artists’ works ;)

anonymous asked:

i hope this isn't a weird question, but i feel like it's appropriate to ask you - what BL series can you recommend, manga or otherwise? they don't have to have xxx scenes, and relationships can even just be implied... thanks, either way!

Ohoohohoh I have a lot of BL stuff I could tell you about!! Here’s a list:  

That’s all I can think off but hopefully you’ll read some of these cute stories!! Thank you for asking me!!!

❝ Even if you go to Tokyo… can I still be your girlfriend ? ❞

I love your new au! It actually reminds me of a really good yaoi manga I read, though I can't remember the name 😅

Imma answer this bc ppl have been wondering in the tags and such but it IS based on the BL manga Hana to Usagi:

which i recommend bc itS HELLA CUTE AND PURE BUT ALSO GETS NSFW in the later chapters so just a heads up!! (I didnt want to link it on the original post bc i didnt want to just rec some possibly nsfw stuff to others - v-”)

iamemeraldfox  asked:

I saw all that red in the picture and it reminded me... did you ever watch Claymore anime? Or manga? It might be your thing. Thanks for unknowingly reminding me of it, I might rewatch it. Also I'll check Blame! out, looks interesting. :)

I read the manga through once years ago but I didn’t really bother to follow it afterwards, can’t remember much of the plot now.

Blame! the movie is nice bit of cyperpunk adventure - Blame! the manga is “exploration of silence in vast open spaces” (according to a comment I read, which put it pretty aptly). Neither really stops to explain the incredibly built world to you, which I weirdly loved more than anything else in the two, and there was lot in both I loved.
