|New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise
(12 posts, 411 views) Posted: 29d 11h, 59m 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, 1184 views) Posted: 51d 15h, 35m 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, 2273 views) Posted: 232d 16h, 38m 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, 2648 views) Posted: 373d 12h, 19m 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

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 ...

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, 2341 views) Posted: 450d 10h, 58m 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, 2850 views) Posted: 492d 15h, 1m 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 ...

(55 posts, 5400 views) Posted: 527d 14h, 45m 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

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, 7213 views) Posted: 779d 15h, 59m 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 ...

(5 posts, 787 views) Posted: 783d 6h, 5m 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 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 ...

(87 posts, 14060 views) Posted: 935d 9h, 31m 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 ...
