|New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 1825 views) Posted: 85d 9h, 26m ago by AndyProk in News
Dang, missed the lasst poll. Ah well.
Does paying for the library card count?
Generally though, once I discovered scanlations, I pretty much abandoned official translations for two reasons:
- No or nearly no honorifics and other "cultural adaptations" made ...

(39 posts, 1932 views) Posted: 99d 8h, 35m ago by AndyProk in News
I suppose oneshots don't count. What about anthologies?
I.e. One-volume-"series" with mostly oneshots in them, though there might be connections between them or two might be chapters of the same story but the others unrelated.
|New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 4949 views) Posted: 623d 5h, 52m ago by AndyProk in News
It would really depend on the size of said library. It would have to be quite huge to be worth it in the long run, considering that only a fraction would be interesting enough to read and time for reading manga is limited. ...
|Changed to completely scanlated

Simply based on the information that Hanayomesama wa 16-sai - 2nd season is merely volumes 2 and 3 of Hanayomesama wa 16-sai, as said in the descriptions of both entries, and that all 3 volumes are scanlated (as seen in the entry for Hanayomesama wa 16-s ...

If he does know, he's a good actor. Or he can convince himself that what Mina is saying is the truth.
Saying that based on chapter 11

|Order by Last Updated/Released?
(0 posts, 318 views) Posted: 785d 10h, 39m ago by AndyProk in Suggestions & Bugs
Is there a way to order search results by the last time they had a release? Since it's already possible within lists, would that be easy enough to do?
I mostly search for completely scanlated manga exclusively. There comes a point where most search results ...
|New Poll - Unwanted Pairing
(38 posts, 4617 views) Posted: 794d 0h, 14m ago by AndyProk in News
I have no clue whatsoever. While there is the occasional case of a pairing not going as I might have preferred it, so far there hasn't been any such case where I knew of it beforehand. I guess it would depend on the case in question.
Well, when I suspect the e ...
|New Poll - Time Skips
(14 posts, 1453 views) Posted: 912d 14h, 6m ago by AndyProk in News
In general, nearly all mangas I read have at least a romantic aspect to them. Most timeskips that appear in those cover times of separation. In manga that don't skip those times, most of the time one or several annoying rivals turn up, like in I"s, and in m ...
|New Poll - Effect of Bad Ending
(31 posts, 1852 views) Posted: 1025d 1h, 22m ago by AndyProk in News
I did vote "Yes", but mainly because I very rarely look at the author's name. Meaning I wouldn't notice it was by the same author and thus still read it. I guess if I would notice I might not read it.
The author's name usually only interests m ...

|New Poll - Scanlation vs. Official
(7 posts, 396 views) Posted: 1248d 23h, 26m ago by AndyProk in News
I do really miss the honorifics in official translations, especially considering that my preferred genre is romance.
Furthermore, where I live there are no directly translated manga. All manga one can buy in stores here (which is a comparatively small amount in the f ...

Seeing how one can block releases from certain groups / certain genres on the Releases page, would it be possible to somehow adapt your pipe to convert that "personalized" releases page into RSS?
I just figured out the genre-blocking exists and a ...
