haha, thats every manga for you. I agree it's reallysad the way woman are portrayed~ I'm in the music business so I know how what it's like for females to try to make it in a music industry that's still fully owned and operated by men whose ideas about career development frequently push you to conform to male stereotypes of how female performers should act and sound: I mean look at how many female instrumentalists there are...and I imagine it's only worse in acting and such.
You either have to be an angel/baby or a bitch/ho.
I still remember a couple years ago a men's center in my town said that sometimes woman can push men to violence and it was met with barely a sound of protest haha.
I did like Battle Royale actually, gave that a read.
Although I'm very cool with nudity in manga (love it actually!) I felt that the girls were shown from a really misogynistic point of view in Battle Royale though, all of them were either sexual misfits or defenseless crybabies.
you might want to check out Zetman if you like Gantz (can find it at onemanga). Also Battle Royale was very awesome however I dl'd it from Stoptazmo... dunno where to find it online.
heh, i see what you mean.
oh god I dunno about this. Shoulda took the opportunity to learn D+D when I had the chance lol.
