(This was taken from my tumblr)
My thoughts on three really crappy manga. Thought Twilight/Fifty Shades of Grey was bad? Think again. Enjoy (?).
Number Three: Hot Gimmick
Synopsis: Hatsumi is a doormat. She is caught between childhood friend Azusa and childhood jerk Ryouki. Azusa tried to gangrape her with his friends. He wants her to suffer. She still loves him. Ryouki is abusive. He pushed her down the stairs once, causing her to be hospitalised and he continually belittles her and hits her. She eventually falls in love with him. Her sister Akane is a "slut". She is in junior high and has 'done it' with many, many guys and tries to belittle her older sister for still being a virgin. She tries to seduce Ryouki who rejects her, and so she 'reports' Hatsumi to Ryouki's crazy control freak of a mum. This is so that her sister's relationships will never work, not that they should anyway. Oh and she eventually marries Ryouki, unless you read the alternate ending. The end.
Me: I want to know why the hell this severely problematic manga has been listed as one of the top ten manga, twice.
Number Two: Fushigi Yuugi
Synopsis: Miaka is a clumsy, dumb doormat. Her friend Yui is the opposite, but still a doormat. One day they both enter a book world. They both become priestesses. Miaka is a 'good priestess' and Yui becomes a 'bad priestess'. This is because Yui thought she was raped when she got into the book. She hates Miaka due to this and has a crush on Miaka's love interest, Tamahome. Also the majority of the male cast fall in love with Miaka. And most of them die, too. Except Tamahome. They have a happy ending. The end.
Me: I'm pretty sure I'm more interesting than a doormat yet I've never attracted the guy I like. :(
Number One: Love Celeb
Synopsis: Kirara is another clumsy doormat. She is an aspiring starlet too. Her manager, who has a crush on her, says that in order for her to succeed, she should sleep with the producers so they'll offer her contracts. She doesn't want this to happen but he forces her anyway. He also likes to grope her from time to time. Anyway, she is pushed into a room full of them and when one guy makes a move on her, she cries about her virginity. This attracts Gin, who is of course the main love interest. He tells everyone to stop, and gives her his number and (though he just met her and it's crazy) he wants her to call him maybe. He is really interested in her virginity. He likes virgins. He says it's because he doesn't like the idea of doing it with women who have done it with others but we all know that he's insecure about his sexual performance. He keeps pushing Kirara to do it with him but she doesn't want to. Of course they do eventually. He also abuses her by calling her names that are offensive to her intellect. They marry too. Another guy tries to blackmail Gin and also does it many times with Kirara. Eventually he reconciles. The end.
Me: Um, hey. I'm a virgin. Any guy like Gin is retarded, by the way...
Me on all of them: I didn't know doormats were so popular these days. Also, what's the deal with having rape as a plot point (purely to titillate the readers btw). What am I talking about, I'm in that generation who read and watched Twilight.
