I got a PM from someone requesting the creation of a thread to identify manga (I guess as the sister thread to the one in the Anime forum) so here it is.

Any of you who are familiar with these forums should know how it goes. Now, I'm not much of a manga person at the moment, so I don't know if there're a lot of questions for ID'ing manga, but I suppose there might be.

Also post your opinions if you think this is a good idea in the first place. Thanks.

When asking for manga, this is already known but remember there is a 75% chance that there are two names to a manga (as with anime). It also helps if you know which magazine it ran in (example: Shonen Jump), a reminder that as far as Japanese versions are concerned, there are about 40+ different magazines running over there.

I think this is a good idea. Many forums that I have been to contain threads about IDing manga/anime/videogames. So it will help to have a thread about it.

Ok, here's one. I know absolutely nothing about it, I just think it looks good. The picture is too big, but i'll link to it.

This has nothing to do with the identification of the manga, but holy ass that kick has got to hurt. (Plus that stupid guy hit a girl, he should die Wink )

Thanks.

Here's another one: I saw this Shojo Beat manga advertised in Shonen Jump a few months after SB first came out. It was about this girl who finds a camera who shows who each person likes. I thought that title might be good if they do it the right way, so i thought of checking it out. But I don't remember the name.Sad

Ultra Maniac. The part you're talking about is just a subplot and not the central focus of the story, so don’t expect the whole manga to be entirely like the preview you read.

Years ago I read a manga in the Shonen Magazine, it was about this guy who first, was working for school cafeteria and his specialty was ramen. Then some big headed jochan comes onto the scene and decides to take over the cafeteria with all her factory made food which brings all the students over to her side for a while. So they battle it out for the cafeteria. He eventually wins with his ramen technique. Second, I don't remember how, but he decides to compete in the Ramen Golden Grand Prix. All these happen in all these stages, and the last round is judged by three idols. In the end, he does win the tournament, and that's the end of the story. Shonen Magazine, about four to five years ago it ran.

Uhm.. recently someone asked me if I knew what the name of a manga was, and after some extensive searching, I was able to find one picture on ebay, and that it was in a japanese magazine called "Dengeki Moeoh".

There's the picture.. It's going to frustrate me until I find out the name >.<

You're sure the name isn't the text in the background?

You probably should mention the picture has some suggestive content... linking to Renchan isn't a good idea here.

Does anybody know the Japanese name of Because I'm the Goddess? I've been trying to look in the encyclopedia, and I also went to Tokyopop but they didn't seem to have it.
