Lol, those books were ridiculously popular in Poland in mid to late 90s. I read them in high school a while ago until volume 30 or something, when the plot became a bit too absurd for me. It's kind of a comfy read tho, if you're in the mood to waste some time.

was it just Poland? I had no idea, thought they're just popular in general. I remember signing on the waiting list in my library bc they were constantly rented out. Such an entertaining series, even with all the absurdity.

Precious Heart Romance is a company that publish these kind of books, sadly i have never read one but wanted to name drop them. they used to have a tv show here, iirc usually airs weekly either on a sunday or saturday afternoon with each episode on a different story. although, their popularity died down since wattpad (even before wattpad become mainstream, i think) took over in popularity and demand with live actions movies or series.

there also known for photoshopping celebrities into their covers from american actors to kpop singers.

I'm too lazy for anything intellectually stimulating, so I read a ton of genre romances from my library's overdrive. My favorite premises involve the heroine and hero initially disliking or distrusting each other.

Some regency favorites:
>Then Came You, Lisa Kleypas
>School for Brides, Cheryl Ann Smith
>Never Deceive a Viscount, Renee Ann Miller
>Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, Julia Quinn

Other recs:
>The Escape Diaries, Juliet Rosetti
>Vamps and the City, Kerrelyn Sparks
Sparks' Love at Stake series is pretty fun for vampire romances.

I’m guessing Anita Blake counts but I didn’t get that far into the series to where it gets really dirty. Really enjoy the setting and its lore though.

I was going around Twitter looking at some people's interpretation of the female gaze and was curious as to what farmers think about the concept. The popular method over on Twitter seems to be to compare one film still to another that has overt male gaze influenced framing.

Obviously, we all know shirtless dudes != female gaze bc those dudes are primarily for men to self insert as fantasies and not actually for women. There is also the possibility that the female gaze can never fully develop because the language of cinema was created largely by men. Women in cinema, as we do in all fields, had to adapt and assimilate to exist in the space which took away any potential to assert our gaze onto the theory.

However, with enough time and careful thought perhaps it is still possible to develop cinematic language that is female to a greater extent. As you can tell, I don't view a male or female gaze as inherently wrong or derogatory. It's only an issue for male gaze to be so prevalent because it leaves little space for women to have something cater to them artistically.

I'm primarily talking about film and possibly video games. Porn for a female audience has some more evident female gaze present but porn is a low hanging fruit and primarily interacts with ~~the gaze~~ in a sexual way which I don't think fully describes the effect.

Chip in with opinions, farmers! Apologies if this ends up being OT for this board. I made the thread here because it's not really bathroom talk.

I always liked Josei better than Shoujo since Shoujo tends more to be sugary romance and finding love while Josei is more about the reality of being in a relationship and how you deal with a person and their family and all the positive and negatives that come with it. Josei also tends to deal with abusive shit and calls it abusive moreso than shoujo would. Also women are allowed to be imperfect in Josei manga and anime. I guess it's because of that stuff that Josei isn't as popular as Shoujo.

Princess Jellyfish is probably the most popular example and one of my favorites.

Not Josei (and I don't even know what category it would fit in) but Michiko to Hatchin is probably the closest you get to a full action oriented Anime with a female gaze. It was written by a man but it's directed by Sayo Yamamoto (who directed The Woman Called Fujiko Mine and Yuri on Ice) and she had full creative freedom in the design and what each scene was going to focus on and could do her own changes.

I guess I would really go for comics that are self contained or made to be a complete stand alone story or anthologies instead of going for trades that are collections of an existing run.

The other thing is probably go to the beginning of an author's run since they don't really reference much out of their own stuff.

>Weirdly has to include a rape or rape attempt in every story

This is my main issue with Alan moore as a writer. Why does there always have to be rape or sexual assault? I legit had to pause Watchmen because of it. And it was hard to finish killing joke. Even worse when Jokerfags glorified it. My issues are that so many comics are pretty good, but women are constantly there as props. It's how i even learned the term "women in refrigerators" or being 'fridged.'

needed some way to vent about this, and i always love reading about other people's raging hate boners for (insert x title here). this isn't limited to books alone - it can be a show, comic, webcomic, etc. as long as it has your blood boiling almost every time you see it and you can't begin to imagine how anyone could get into it.

i'll start us off: "a matter of life and death" (https://tapas.io/series/A-Matter-of-Life-and-Death) is kind of the brainless beauty of western BL. now, it didn't start off that way, but between the author deciding to start acting like a spoiled brat instead of taking responsibility for her growing fanbase during the past year, and the story itself taking an olympic nosedive into overwrought, melodramatic, needlessly vindictive (while somehow still failing to deliver all the emotional punches during actually appropriate scenes), everything-that-makes-BL-shit territory.

now, as a disclaimer, i will admit that i'm not a fan of BL in general. i've seen way too many works that portray stuff like rape, abuse, etc. way too voyeuristically for my comfort, and even in more lighthearted series it usually feels like the authors don't know how guys interact with other people, let alone how gay guys do it. it's just not for me. but for fuck's sake, even i can recognize that BL fans deserve better than this.

>mature body

Are you referring to her hips, anon? Her hips do seem exaggerated for a teen girl but that's because it's a cartoon.

She also looks to be bottom heavy when with her wide legs, so it makes sense for her hips to drawn wider to fit with her overall silhouette.

All the characters are drawn with exaggerated body types in >>81147. Most likely to be diverse in body types and make each character easily recognisable with their silhouette.

We need a RLM thread, the subreddit is a shit show and I'd like to talk more lore, personal lives, and new video discussions.

"The Main Trio"

Mike "not a racist" Stoklasa - Cynical hack fraud ring leader. Born 1978. Obsessed with Star Trek but only really TNG. Started RLM over a decade ago to make shitty "come on don't take it serious it's SUPPOSED to look bad duh" movies with his FAS riddled friend Rich and also do wedding/promotional shoots. Broke into the big time when his Mr. Plinkett reviews/diatribe against the Star Wars prequels went viral on early youtube. Laid the ground work for every whiny movie reviewer youtuber to come. Grew up in Oak Forrest Illinois and went to the same high school as Rich Evans where they met. Graduated in 1996. Went to film school in Chicago that he found stupid and pretentious. Acts like a poor shlub but lives in a brand new 300k house in Oak Creek Wisconsin. Dat Patreon money at work folks!

Rich "dick the birthday boy" Evans - Designated funny fat friend. Born 1977. Parents were burnouts and he grew up raised by grandma. Met Mike in high school, who knew a rube when he saw one and recruited Rich to be beaten up on and fall down in his crappy movies. Followed Mike to Milwaukee because he has no other friends or life outside of Mike. Engaged to an unfortunate looking woman named Karin Franklin since 2013, may never actually marry.

Jerry "Jay" Bauman - Born 1980. Met Mike and Rich on the forums of rewindvideo.com where they found they both had the same "haha look at everyone taking themselves seriously, not us though!" cynical attitude towards movie making. Was in Milwaukee for school and all 3 men decided to settle there for absolutely no reason. Was beta orbiting a woman named Lauren who didn't like him back (the source of the I'm Dying Lauren memes). Also had the hots for a girl named Lisa that appears in old videos, but apparently Mike fucked her and they stopped being friends over it for a while. No known girlfriend or boyfriend.

"The Rest"

Jack "aidsmoby" Packard - Low status director in Milwaukee who shot band videos and Funny or Die content. Was once in a band called Kings Horses. Met the guys somehow and started collaborating in the early 2000s. Can be seen in Best of the Worst videos and the defunct PreviouslyRecorded video gaming streams. Married with 2 kids. The only one of the group who isn't a weirdo about his personal life.

Any idea of what they usually do for income? I imagine that some of them have/had(?) interactions with other people through their work, hence Rich not being around for their last HitB, and the show currently being placed on an indefinite hiatus… But in honesty don't know…

I wouldn't be sure if Rich had some kind of set-building or carpentry job. He's really good at it.

No. 95017

I believe Jack is an editor and Josh is an audio technician/producer. Rich works for RLM full time from what I understand. Their patreon, youtube, and merchandise earnings are something like $70,000-$100,000 a month so I think Jay and Mike and their employee Rich might just live off of that.
