I've never heard of weeaboo and I live in Japan! Is it Japanese?:lol:

As far as I know, "Otaku" refers to sad men who live with their parents, have never had a girlfriend, don't know how to communicate with the opposite sex, wear anoraks, are into gaming and manga, who go to maid cafes in Akihabara and leer at scantily clad cutey girls to get their kicks. I wouldn't say the word "otaku" was complimentary in the slightest. :P

Maybe outside of Japan it has another meaning. :?

bikkit,

I was telling you. Death Note or Liar Game are both awesome Manga and are amazing. Check it out.

I've just read the latest chapter bikkit! It's getting very exciting!

D. Gray Man and Billy Bat are good, I think

the speech bubbles are UGLEH. They're huge and sometimes they cover the characters face and hve to be made transparent. And that is just the bottom complaint on my long list. The top being: EEEEW TWILIGT! ARRRGH! SPARKLY VAMIRES ! EEEW

:shock: They actually have them! I was just joking. :wink:
Mind you, apart from your hate of glitter mascara vampires, it sounds like they just picked a crappy artist. :wink:

Well, can you think of a worthwhile artist who would do a twilight manga?
