Hmmm not so sure, after a while I guess most ppl can stomach only so much stupid action/romance genre.

Ever since I read YKK, my taste changed. I knew what I like. YKK is one of the best, but I think there're better ones out there.

Here's a manga that has no sappy romance, no ridiculous fights, no bloody violence or ecchi fanservice, yet it still remains highly entertaining. Now that's unique. It's no easy feat to create an absorbing, entertaining story without all of the typical story elements.

Hey, just look at topic with ages of readers. Here are older people at most, with sense of life and understanding that all is futile and transient.
If you read YKK and like it, it means you becoming mature and wise, thats all =)

They're right before discovering YKK I was (and still am) a huge Rumiko Takahashi fan. I liked the mix of comedy, romance, and action she puts into her major series. I guess discovering Kare Kano sort of helped push me more towards a slice of life style mangas. I still like Takahashi mangas, the Kare Kano, and my favorite mystery series Kindaichi Case Files but now I find myself checking out things like Aria. I like series that can't be put into one category or another and move at a nice slow pace showing the day to day lives of the characters within the pages of the mangas. Hopefully more and more companies like ADV and Dell Rey will bring over more YKK style series for all to enjoy.

YKK just kind of grew on me. When I first read it, I just couldn't get over how creepy Ojisan's face looks (It still scares me!) and the fact that nothing really happened just seemed strange to me, but I couldn't stop reading it, anyway. I thought that maybe more would happen, but rather than that being the case, I just ended up really liking it because of the relaxed nature. Well, that, and I fell in love with the characters. ;) I don't even have anything against Ojisan; it's just his face that scares me. ;p

Uh...wow. Babbling. Top of cool!
