Once upon a time, OtomeGamer started a thread dedicated to reading really ghastly shoujo manga. Beautiful things were born from the horrors we witnessed, derails were had, and within it, a mention of a yaoi manga whose title escapes me. When I tried looking it up on Manga Storm, I instead found a manga called The Sultan's Heir. Having read the summary of this josei manga, I shared my discovery and was prompted by Umazes, MulMizu and Hikikomori to start the hypothetical Let's Read of it. However, I then decided I might as well make this a thread about bad josei manga in general because a good number of them are basically Harlequin novels in comic form. They can be terrible, pathetic, stupid, and mostly about sex between two people who really shouldn't get together. In other words, A+ Harlequin material! There's no way you can go wrong. So go pour yourself your favourite alcoholic drink, sit back, and enjoy as I read bad Josei manga for your entertainment. I promise you, you are in for a treat. Triggers will be mentioned when appropriate, though, so don't worry, you won't be taken by surprise in that regard. INDEX [Title; Appropriate trigger warnings.] Let it also be known that I'll censure accordingly. The Sultan's Heir; If it's the story I think it is, it's an adaptation of a bodice ripper. Additional trigger warnings and confirmation of my suspicions will be mentioned as they crop up.
