|New Poll - Hidden Hobby?
(15 posts, 882 views) Posted: 85d 20h, 22m ago by tactics in News
I don't go out of my way to tell people about it but if it comes up in a conversation then yeah I'll say I like it. I admit to being a massive nerd and I don't really care what people think about it. It's a big part of who I am so if someone has an iss ...
|New Poll - Good, bad, and the Ugly
(40 posts, 2351 views) Posted: 106d 21h, 21m ago by tactics in News
I went for bad, okay, great in the end.
It's so disappointing to read a manga with a great beginning for it to slowly fall from grace. I decided on a bad beginning because usually these days I don't read stories that have freshly started, so if I know it gets be ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise 2
(15 posts, 953 views) Posted: 113d 12h, 30m ago by tactics in News
Defo not enough space.
I don't really care what others think. I'm at that age where I have my group of friends who all know what I like and know I'm a massive nerd. Why should I not make my room reflect my interests if it makes me happy? It' ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise
(12 posts, 925 views) Posted: 147d 16h, 48m ago by tactics in News
It's mostly figurines that I get these days, but I did go through a keychain/poster phase at one point.
Bought a few more DVD/blu-ray's recently when the sales were too good to ignore as well.
I have a few plushies but they're mostly from the Po ...
|New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2033 views) Posted: 169d 20h, 25m ago by tactics in News
I mean, sure I watched the pokemons and the digimons and the yugiohs on TV but they're not the reason I got into anime/manga. I wasn't even aware "anime" existed as a kid. It wasn't until one day I stumbled across a manga online ...

|New Poll - Piece of Crap
(27 posts, 2550 views) Posted: 350d 21h, 27m 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, 2844 views) Posted: 491d 17h, 9m 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, 2931 views) Posted: 504d 22h, 14m 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 ...

(21 posts, 2415 views) Posted: 519d 16h, 23m 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, 2536 views) Posted: 568d 15h, 48m 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, 3090 views) Posted: 610d 19h, 50m 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, 5736 views) Posted: 645d 19h, 35m 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. ...

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, 3700 views) Posted: 785d 9h, 13m 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, 7296 views) Posted: 897d 20h, 48m 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 ...

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 ...

This first thing that popped into my mind was Fuuka lol.

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 ...
