Even if I did read a mediocre piece of work, I'll probably be unable to tell if a certain thing is cliche or if it is just THAT specific manga, and therefore would establish the need to go through more comics before I get the grasp of the general repetition. Since I can't sit and read all the bad mangas and categorize the similarities, I thought it would be nice to ask the people who've read them to maybe give me a few examples, that is all.
WHY I want to do this? I don't know, I think I just have bad tastes and a masochistic sense of humor. Haha.
Let's think hard and a little objectively right now, and I mean this constructively-
Do you think you'll be able to formulate a good comedy criticizing or otherwise "using" cliches if you haven't watched, read or really digested any of the media? If that sounds a bit weeaboo, here's a better analogy, do you think a comedian will be able to tell good jokes about situations or subjects they've never experienced? How about an artist learning about anatomy but instead of going to the source material for reference (life drawing) they ask other people to draw realistic people for them to emulate?
You're welcome to still try it anyway since you say you're a masochist but it feels like you're needlessly breaking the rule of "writing what you know" and you've already admitted you don't want to look into it yourself. Again, you're free to try but I feel like I should still point this out to you- anyway, best of luck 8V
EDIT: As for others trying to tackle an intentionally "cliche" comic to deconstruct it or criticize or parody/satirize it, I still recommend the same advice, research it, find the cliches yourself, learn what they are and potentially why they are so that you can get an understanding of the subject and better employ it for yourself.
