Korean Manga.

I was wondering if anybody is fan of a particular series. I haven't read very many  (Peppermint, Snow Drop, et al) I found all them to be laughably bad. Horrible style, pointless lame plots,  just not good. But I thought,  maybe I just haven't found a good one yet. Any recommendations?

If you like Gothic Lolita style, Under the Glass Moon is amazing! The story is take it or leave it. Unfortunately, it was taken out of print before they made Volume 3.

Still, they're out there if you look hard enough. :)

Try The Antique Gift Shop, it is one of my very fav's!

There's also Bird Kiss and Cynical Orange, but maybe I just like Manhwa....

If you are into yaoi, the Not So Bad books (2 vols) were pretty good for the genre.  I've written reviews for them both so you could check those out if you wanted more info.  - Sianeka

Ah I loved that series, it made me happy in my heart, though you really have to ignore the cover art....that style just wasn't meant for color....
