Would you prefer a long ass manga (like maybe about 30-40 chapters) or a shortish manga (say around 10 to 15 chapters).
Both. But I usually read the long ones, lol. ^^

Would you prefer a story that's more serious or light (ie. lots of comedy)?
Depends.

Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss).
Two people. I don't really like Reverse harem.

Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
It depends too.

Most importantly, do you prefer romance with another genre (like romance-action or romance-fantasy, romance-comedy etc. Basically stories like Vampire Knight, La Corda D'oro, and School Rumble) or a story that focuses MAINLY on romance with a bit of extra sub-plot that you don't really care about (Special A).
No. I don't really like Shoujo, I mainly read Shounen & Seinen.

Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary.
No, though I woudn't mind if there's a few bit of ecchi. As long as the story is great, I will read it regradless ecchi or not.

Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?

It depends too.

Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
None of the above. A main character should be unique and stands out.

I want it to be long.. XD it's more exciting that way.. XD plus.. it will be detailed.. XD

I like light stories better... but i like deep stories tooo.. XD like.. fruits basket... I was kinda surprised with Gakuen Alice.. I thought it was a light story.. but.. it had a deeper plot into it.. XD so.. yeah.. XD

Reverse Harem... not sure why.. XD

Sometimes i would go for a tragic ending... XD coz.. some cliche stories are quite boring... but if i really really like a manga.. I'd go for the best possible positive ending.. XD

MMM.. as for the protagonist.. well... i want her to be smart and kind.. XD strong-willed and... cheerfu.. XD

I prefer both....

Light

Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss)?
romance between two people... but sometimes I prefer reverse harem too...

Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
At the middle... I always want to see how the characters manage to keep their relationship strong..

Most importantly, do you prefer romance with another genre (like romance-action or romance-fantasy, romance-comedy etc. Basically stories like Vampire Knight, La Corda D'oro, and School Rumble) or a story that focuses MAINLY on romance with a bit of extra sub-plot that you don't really care about (Special A)?
romance-action/fantasy/comedy etc... there is no excitement if its all romance....

Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary?
I don't think its necessary... there are some good mangas with ecchi but i think it can survive w/out ecchi...

Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?
Good idea.

Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
strong, smart, and handsome. Plain and cute.

Long

Light, but it really depends on my mood.

Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss).
Reverse Harem

Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
In the beginning of the manga.

Romance with another genre mixed to it can give a title it's edge but there are times when you just want a good old regular romantic story.

Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary.
Completely unnecessary.

Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?
I'm into angst so it's a great idea for me.

Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
Smart and/or strong. It doesn't matter if the main character is beautiful or not, the attitude and the character of the lead carries the entire title.

I like never ending ones, the type I am planing on writing.

Would you prefer a story that's more serious or light (ie. lots of comedy)?
hmm, i would love to find a very serious one that never does and real comedy, just one or two moments and a little irony from one charachter. Maybe through in a joke or two as part of a charachters personality.

Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss).
I like one or two main ones and afew in the backround that take the stage once or twice, like at their first kiss or when they ask eachother out, or first date etc...

Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
There should be one kiss from the main romance at/near the end and one or two scatered around from minor couples.

Most importantly, do you prefer romance with another genre (like romance-action or romance-fantasy, romance-comedy etc. Basically stories like Vampire Knight, La Corda D'oro, and School Rumble) or a story that focuses MAINLY on romance with a bit of extra sub-plot that you don't really care about (Special A).
Ones with a little romance and alot of plot are my fave.I love adventure, magic and action. I like things like +Anima, only with a side romance ((Btw, do you know anywhere that does that anime? manga fox stoped at a good bit...))

Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary.
I don't know what that is.... and by the way some people respoded to it, i don't think I want to....

Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?
If it is romantic yes, if not, no. I don't like the whole 'good deed' thing, that has to come neer the start. I'm writing a book, and to make up for the lack of deaths in the end, the main girl dies in the second chapter to make way for the main charachter who takes her place in the group.

Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
Hmmmmmmmm, I like a variaty, but I would like there to be a rather gothic but cute character that was smart and used a martial art to make herself strong. a scar or two would add to her image and an inabilitly to relise her own beauty would be briliant. I have a tektek a bit like what I'm thinking of, just not the whip or fire.:

((one other point, don't give her blond or pink hair, everyone does. brown is boring two, too many people make the main girl 'ordinary'. make her have green, blue, red or ginger hair. If she is a deep person, purple is ok too, like artistic or good book loving. romance is no fun with a romantic person that likes to admit it, it is fun when it is the quirky charchter. same goes for the boy, but for him, brown and black are ok, but navy, olive/teal or blood red are the best))

((eyes must be intresting two, but bright colours are best for a girl and dark are best for a boy, hair-eye contrast works well and blue/red/pink/gold eyes are used too much, try green, purple combination. eyes realy change a charachter, make sure they work, it can be one of the bigest disasters if they look rong, trust me. and you have to draw hair that goes in front of the eyes infront of the eyes!! it is the most stupid and iritating and even infuriating thing that hapens when the eyes are drawn infrong of the hair, trust me, I stoped watching an anime because of it and if it happened in a manga, I would probably do the same))

I would have to say long manga because short ones it takes at least a couple chapters for most to get into it and if its short you would get into but then it would be almost over.
Would you prefer a story that's more serious or light (ie. lots of comedy)?
I would have to say in the middle, it has enough comedy for a good laugh but serious so you wont get tired of it. Such as To Aru Majutsu No Index, it has a spark but then it also has that on earth type feeling that makes you feel as if it could happen.
Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss).
A manga with one to two couples, not to many to confuse you and not to focused on one thing that makes you bored.
Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
Some manga go medium. Its a slow start on the romace witha couple distractions then they start getting closer and by 4-5th chapter they are together and then have everyday problems such as jealousy, love rivals, etc.
Most importantly, do you prefer romance with another genre (like romance-action or romance-fantasy, romance-comedy etc. Basically stories like Vampire Knight, La Corda D'oro, and School Rumble) or a story that focuses MAINLY on romance with a bit of extra sub-plot that you don't really care about (Special A).
Romance-fantasy, Romance-supernatural, Romance-martial arts, or Romance-music.
Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary.
A little ecchi. Not too much that shows any *cough*body parts*cough*.
Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?
No tragic, like Code Geass.
Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
Plain but beautiful, such as Ouran High School Host Club's Haruhi (with glasses and ragged clothes and tossled hair-ugly, but nice clothes and contacts and fixed hair-pretty). Then, smart and cute, also in some animes make her cute and strong and smart.

I agree. And maybe even streaks of another color that complement the hair, such as red with blonde, or even tips.

Also, the hair-styles. Most anime keeps the same hair-style throughout the entire series. It gets boring. Also, when the hair-style does not match the character.

And the eyes, are boring most of the time. Shade the eyes differently or when they hit the light a certain way make them shine or grow lighter or darker when it is dark. Try amethyst eyes (light purple).

- 30-40 chapters sound fine, but unless it's mahou shoujo, it's best to keep it short imo..
-Serious at times at the intimate moments and light at just the normal days out
-Haha reverse harems can always make things really funny, but I do like it when it's still clear which guy's the most important for the main character, like in Fruits Basket..
-Well you have to build up the heat imo, so right at the end I guess..
-Romance with another genre, just only romance can get a bit boring if it's longer than a one shot..
-not necessary, but fun to add if you want comedy in it
-I hate tragic endings D=
-Strong, smart and plain.


Btw don't most main characters have brown hair because a lot of japanese girls have brown dyed hair?
Ohwell I have naturally brown hair myself so I like it when the main character also has brown hair .. But yeah if you wanna be original you shouldn't pick it as a haircolor I agree..

And lol about the eyes over the hair part, lol I never totally got that part, but my theory up till now is that they do it to show the eye's expression. I can't think of another reason for it, but if that's the case it's atually a good drawing technique eventhough it's not realistic..

They're both okay. (^________^) It all depends on the story, I guess. But I hate plotlines that drag on forever.


Would you prefer a story that's more serious or light (ie. lots of comedy)?
Again, they're both okay. But nothing senseless, please.

Which one's better, reverse harem (like Fushigi etc) or just romance between mainly two people (like Itazura na Kiss).
Err. This is hard... romance between two happy people, I guess. I don't read romance that much and most of the romance manga I read are yaoi/shounen-ai.

Should the romance be fast (like early on in the manga) or right at the end?
Well. Just as long as it's not senseless/stupid. Plus, I don't like it when the girl/uke easily gives in. :b

Most importantly, do you prefer romance with another genre (like romance-action or romance-fantasy, romance-comedy etc. Basically stories like Vampire Knight, La Corda D'oro, and School Rumble) or a story that focuses MAINLY on romance with a bit of extra sub-plot that you don't really care about (Special A).
Romance-Comedy, definitely. That way it won't be too boring..!

Then I also wanna know if ecchi is necessary.
Ew. No Ecchi for me, especially if it's girls. Boys are a different story, though. LOLKIDDING. xD

Tragic ending: really bad idea, bad idea but tolerable, okay idea, good idea, great?
It depends if it really fits the story; but I seriously loved the ending of Romeo x Juliet and Code Geass R2.

Should the main character be cute and moe or strong and smart? Plain or pretty or beautiful?
It's what inside that counts. :DODGES TOMATOES:
