What's Hot in Manga
« on: May 06, 2017, 03:40:52 PM »
You know when a movie does something cool, other movies  (studios) try to do the same to leach off of the success. Does the manga business do the same, as far as you have seen? I only read a few Manga now and barely watch a handful of anime.

So any common tropes that have appeared in 2017?
What was hot in 2016?

If you are a manga analyst, this is your place to shine and give insight for the future.

This one is old, probably 2010 and beyond.

I'll call this the Mikasa Character because that is where I first saw it. (Attack on Titan)

Totally in love with the MC and is physically and probably emotionally superior in every way than the MC. But love is not reciprocated or it takes a while.

I think this is a play on Hinata's character if she was bad ass and assertive.

I've seen this in attack on titan, future diary (2006), death tube (2014).

You can call it a tsundere or yandere but I think it goes a little beyond that.

Opinions do not always mean that the destination is always different.

Moe  will never go away.

But, let's talk about recurring character designs. I'm seeing the Grey colored Strong Busty, "bitchy" well endowed female character. I caught on when I decided to use it for one of my stories.
