I go to about 3-4 a year. It's a great opportunity to meet up and hang out with my friends for the day while being the bunch of nerds we are. ...
|New Poll - Piece of Crap
(27 posts, 2038 views) Posted: 170d 7h, 29m ago by tactics in News
Sometimes what people deem as "crappy anime" actually turns out to be rather entertaining. Sure, the narrative needs work, the character's are a bit flat etc but sometimes I don't feel like watching an anime with in-depth characterisation ...
|New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 2490 views) Posted: 311d 3h, 11m ago by tactics in News
It did a 180. Used to read/watch so many harems or settings where the male protagonist gets some sort of power or something in his life changes etc.
Now if the protagonist is an "ordinary high school boy" I am automatically no longer interested.
I wan ...
|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 2428 views) Posted: 324d 8h, 16m ago by tactics in News
I read and own a fair few, from Marvel & DC to independent comics. I don't follow any though apart from a series called Saga. I prefer to read contained graphic novels as well. Comics aren't as easily accessible as manga online, so I have to b ...
|Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 2062 views) Posted: 339d 2h, 25m ago by tactics in Manga General
I started because I wanted to give back to the community, but I continue because 1. I like the people I work with (and I've made some great friends along the way) and 2. I've learnt so many new things in Photoshop that I've been able to apply outs ...
|New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 2237 views) Posted: 388d 1h, 50m ago by tactics in News
So-so for sure. It's gotten to the point now where I'm only reading a few series that are still going. Certainly not looking to start reading anything new. I know I haven't been keeping up with all the releases for the series on my reading list as well h ...
|New Poll - Two Page Spreads in Scanlations
(18 posts, 2738 views) Posted: 430d 5h, 52m ago by tactics in News
C'mon don't be lazy. I've redrawn every spread that's come my way, and I've had some real problematic ones before, but I always felt it was worth it. It looks so much nicer.
I get it if it's a speed release or th ...

|New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 5138 views) Posted: 465d 5h, 36m ago by tactics in News
I'm gonna have to say no, it's not better than no release at all. Shoddy editing can be endured to an extent, but shitty translations that are in broken english can't. ...
|New Poll - Sickness

I still go about my day as usual, but instead of drinking tea/coffee, I swap it out for a hot honey and lemon drink, which helps me to get rid of a cold completely within 3 days usually. ...
|New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 3263 views) Posted: 604d 19h, 15m ago by tactics in News
Eh I'm kind of 50/50 on this one. Sometimes I feel like playing as a female, sometimes I'll choose a male character. I guess I lean towards female generally when I think about it tho.
Something that helps make the decision quicker is whether romancing ...
|New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(29 posts, 7147 views) Posted: 717d 6h, 50m ago by tactics in News
I usually skip both most of the time. Sometimes I'll watch the OP once and then skip it, sometimes I don't bother to watch it at all. I never bother with the ED's. I don't know why, but I don't. I think there was only one series I used to watc ...
|Furious 7 (spoilers)
(5 posts, 760 views) Posted: 720d 20h, 56m ago by tactics in Chatter Box
Yeah I agree that the ending was good. 'Twas super sad because you know he wasn't just talking in terms of the relationship between the characters. I thought it was pretty clever, the way they made it into a tribute and fitted it into the plot really well a ...

I don't read as much manga as I used to, the days of binging are over. So if I want to stop reading something, I will just stop. I like to finish the chapter I'm reading though. ...

This first thing that popped into my mind was Fuuka lol.
Most of the time I continue reading, but I'm getting really bad at following things recently so I'll stop reading it for a while then continue later when I remember. ...

I usually keep going, even if it's going through a bad patch. They're always going to have a few bad patches aren't they.
As for re-reading Naruto, haha yeah I'm doing that but slowly. I pick the next volume from the shelf and read it when ...

Huh well. Not many there that I'll watch. Probably a good thing because I am slacking so bad when it comes to watch anime. So behind on so many series. I think I'll end up watching maybe 2-3 series this season. I'll see. ...

Only a few for me. I stream most of the anime I watch (if I remember to watch them. I'm so behind on currently airing anime) but there are some that I do download because I know I'm gonna want to watch them again. I like getting the blu-ray rips when ...

Yeah I was thinking that the movie would cover it too. I would be ok with this. I would like to know how it happened. Everything feels shallow. I need to see some relationship building. ...
|So, Naruto Came To ? The End ? !!
(87 posts, 13748 views) Posted: 873d 0h, 23m ago by tactics in Naruto
If we ignore the pairings, the ending was ok. Yeah a bit anti-climatic but eh. I'm satisfied. It was always going to be difficult to end so good after such a long time.
The pairings though, I mean, some of them just came out of nowhere. I know Kishi's said th ...

(41 posts, 11108 views) Posted: 882d 16h, 58m ago by tactics in Fuuka
Yeah maybe. I dunno I just get the feeling that this is all a prologue and the main story is about to begin. Probs go deeper into Yuu's character now, how he's dealing with this and how it releases his untapped potential with music or something. This is wh ...

I have no idea about the rankings but I have a feeling Seo had this planned from the start. I don't think this was an abrupt decision. I think he knows exactly what he's doing. He always knows how to piss off his readers, yet keep them coming back for m ...
