    I've just finished Living Game, as well. I agree it was good, though there were several parts (expecially near the final few volumes) that were pretty darn uncomfortable. Thank goodness nothing came of it. I thought my heart was going to stop. I'm glad it wasn't a repeat of what happened in REC.

    Still, it was good, with a fairly satisfying ending. Now then, on to the next series~

    well for animes. from the top of my head and not mentioned:

    Midori no Hibi: The anime is a compressed version of the manga were they just took the most important plots. Its about a delinquent who was desperate to have a girlfriend and waking up one morning to find that his right hand was missing and there was a girl there instead. full of laughs and nice romance. kinda weird though

    Hanaukyou Maid La Verite: Normal guy who was orphaned and has become the heir for his multi-billionaire grandfather. It's a maid anime, full of fanservice but for me I like the story. too bad they only animated up to volume 4 of the manga. I couldn't find volume 5 and up for this.

    Kimagure Orange Road: Its a classic and its very old. It's about a family of espers who just moved into town. The eldest son met a very pretty girl when he first went out to look around town but later he found out that she's his classmate and not only that but she's famous delinquent. It focuses more on the romance than the espers.

    Shakugan no Shana: plenty of action, romance and some comedy. Second season hasn't finished yet so I'm not sure if its gonna be a happy ending.

    Kamichu: A Middle school girl woke up and found out that she is a god(dess). Its a simple story of how a girl deals with her problems in school, love life and being a god.

    Karekano (also known as His & Her's circumstances): Boy meets girl. Girl wants to win against boy. Enter Yukino miyazawa. a girl who is perfect in grades, sport and personality... well thats what you think. she's only pretending to be one so that people will admire her but when she met Arima. who is better at her in all 3 categories. she has to do something to win against him.

    Vision of Escaflowne: Fantasy Romance Action with a very nice story. It's not a comedy though. so I guess you can scratch this one out.

    I think thats enough for today

    Oh, not at all. I'm certain it's a great series. And I liked what I've read up until that point. It's just.. one of the three "taboos" I have is this:

    If a guy and a girl are together and in love, but, due to one circumstance or another ( a moment of weakness, being drunk, frusterated after having a fight, raped, or whatever) the girl ends up having sex with another guy, thus completely betraying their love to the other person.

    Even if they're forgiven, or the other person never finds out, I just don't like that. At all. It completely and utterly destroys my spirit and my interest in the series. It makes me feel horrible, emotionally. I end up not being able to get it off my mind for days, and I'm just depressed and.. emotionally hollow or something during that time.

    I've read many series (or seen anime) where that happens, which is why I'm always wary about it. Yet I love romance and romantic comedies, so I pretty much have to take that risk.

    Anyway, that happened in the end of volume three of REC.

    I agree completely... I hate those kind of events as well (which is why I shuddered my way through Dance til Tomorrow and Absolute Boyfriend). Interestingly enough, I find that I have double standards... I have much fewer problems with the guy sleeping around, provided he is properly guilty/apologetic afterwards about it. Does this apply to you too? (I also wonder if this explains the vast disparity between the number of harem manga and reverse-harem manga available...)

    You know, oddly enough, I'm the same. It doesn't have the same impact on me if it's the guy who cheats on the girl. I still don't like it, of course, (in fact, I hate it) but I can continue reading without feeling absolutely horrible emotionally.

    I have no problem whatsoever with sex or lovemaking in anime and manga. It's the whole cheating and betraying aspect which I don't like. I suppose my standards are unrealistic, but I feel that if two people are together and in love, they should be loyal to one another without exception.

    I feel there's just no excuse at all for betraying the one you love in such a manner. A kiss or something, I can deal with. But actually having sex with someone else, well.. it just hits me really hard. I don't like it at all

    Hmm. I find it more or less equally repellent, for either sex. Though whether I'm repelled depends on how well the writer handles the emotional and relationship consequences of the infidelity, and the impetus for it.

    Course, my relative amorality here may be a reflection of writing romance and erotica.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    I see... Now I've got a much better picture. As for myself I have the same phobic reaction to main characters who get pregnant. That's probably why I stopped reading (Spoiler:Nana) even though I really liked it.
