Post Reply Do you feel comfortable reading manga together with someone?
Posted 6/1/12
My sister and I sometimes watch anime together but we never read manga together as she's a slow reader. The one time we did read together, it was one of the latest chapters of Skip beat and we only had 1 working computer in the house. I had to read a page 3 times before my sister finished that 1 page.

I have never read a manga with anyone before. I wouldn't read the same book with a person due to different reading speeds. Sometimes I fly through a manga, but other times I like to savor the artwork. I would watch Anime with other people though (AFTER I'd seen it by myself first).

Hmm... I don't really do that often, but sometimes I read 'Yotsuba&!' with my little sister because all you need is a just a little briefing for that one... it's fun to laugh at the jokes with her, but it would be hard to get sucked into the book and think about it if you did it all the time, especially with more serious mangas.

I read a lot of smutty manga, so yeah I would feel uncomfortable ahah. But even so, I like generally like to be along when reading or watching stuff

I like to read manga by myself. I don't think there's anyone that I know that actually reads manga, so I'm lucky enough to not have anyone to read it with!

I read it by myself, even though I have friends with the same interests, I don't necessarily want to read manga with them because they would probably distract me.

ive read comedies with a friend a few times but it was ok
not the best experience i wasnt a fan of being hovered while reading something while they expect me to laugh at things
i dont wanna be pressured to laugh i just want it to happen when it happens
plus we hav some series in common but i gez im into darker and in general more crazy things so there is only so much i can read with them

No i read alone. But thats the same with all my books.
I dont want to come across an unexpected page where it gets really crazy, like say some ecchi stuff and i'm not comfortable with someone reading the same thing next to me thinking weird things about me. ( I know this sentence could have come out worded much better than what i just typed...)

And i especially hate hovering people, especially around when i'm reading something on the computer. You never know when something awkward pops up and the person behind you gets the wrong impression.

I think it's fun! But only if they have their own copy or something. I'm really OCD about my books and when the binding is broken >__< lol but if they read it online with me then I'm a-ok! xD

I once read Nana To Karou with a female friend of mine. Her idea and it would've been awkward if we didn't know pretty much every embarrasing thing about one another. Never read it prior to that.

I don't like to breath in front of people either.

It is just a book, I don't give a crap what other people think. I enjoy the manga.
