Er... admittedly, it's been a while since I read the volumes that pertain to this , but I'm actually pretty sure that's not the case...Mr. Hat'n'Clogs (post: 1530228) wrote:...main characters are illegitimate children...

It may be hard to remember since we're kind of used to referring to each other by first name, so we can assume Hohenheim is his first name (even though it is Van), I know I used to have that problem with Dumbledore. Anyways, yeah, I can go look it up later but I am like 99% sure I am right on this.

It could be that for once, this sort of thing isn't my cup of tea, or, I wondered if it might have something to do with the version. Apparently ADV or something was the first publisher, and their translation was better done than Yen Press's? As in it carried over better? 'Cause all three volumes I have are the newer ones published by Yen Press...
I like Ouran though. That's fun stuff. And I'm okay re-reading it.
Uh, yes they did. ADV put out the first five volumes of Yotsuba&! before their manga division collapsed.You can even pick up some of their old releases on RightstufAtria35 (post: 1531398) wrote:ADV never published Yotsuba. It's probably just not your cup of tea.
Atria35 (post: 1531403) wrote:Well, I still don't think that a different translation will make a difference as to whether Excelon likes it- a story about a little girl doing cute stuff is a story about a little girl who does cute stuff. I think the Yen Press version is simply hilarious and have never had an issue with it.
BTW- Excelon, nothing else on our lists appealed to you? Sorry to hear that. Had you already asked for recommendations for manga like Ouran?

Atria35 (post: 1531508) wrote:Actually, now that you've made that parallel, you're right! That is exactly the type of fantasy it is.
And it's okay to be picky, I am when it comes to certain things. It will severely limit what you end up reading, though... But I do recommend taking a chance on some even if the art doesn't appeal or the synopsis doesn't (because goodness knows I'm really bad at describing things and making them appealing!), at least for a few chapters, to see if you can't find something else that could interest you, story-wise.
Atria35 (post: 1531527) wrote:Well, can't help you with that! xD Glad you thought it was interesting, though!
I'm out of ideas, though. I feel.... Maybe you'd be willing to give Twin Spica a shot? Nothing really scary in it, it's about a girl who's attempting to be an astronaut.
