New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 4264 views) Posted: 651d 15h, 40m ago by AndyProk in News
I'm not sure What exactly I consider 'terrible art', but I would never have counted Gokusen, Skip Beat! and Tokyo Crazy Paradise as being part of that category.
Maybe One-Punch-Man could fit that category, looking at the original japanese web ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 4264 views) Posted: 651d 16h, 14m ago by AndyProk in News
At first, I was going to go for option 1. But then I thought, "Wait a minute, if the artwort is truly 'terrible', I don't think I would read enough to even have a clue how good or bad the plot is. I'd probably look at the first few pages and disca ...
New Poll - Your Occupation
(35 posts, 4496 views) Posted: 660d 19h, 56m ago by AndyProk in News
For me "Student, also working though, but looking for more work" would have been a correct choice. Also technically "work multiple jobs", though they're all small things and probably soon "Student, no other job, but looking ...
New Poll - Old vs. New Group
(19 posts, 4585 views) Posted: 965d 22h, 33m ago by AndyProk in News
The current question is kinda unanswerable. Partly because it is not specified how much slower the old group is, partly because it is not specified how big the difference in quality is (or simply how bad the quality of the new group is).
If the quality of the new group is ab ...

Found a complete Russian version of it on the net, which turns out to actually be easier to read than the raws, because its easier to decypher due to less and bigger characters and because it's closer to English, so google translate produces quite good tra ...

(3 posts, 1402 views) Posted: 1058d 22h, 59m ago by AndyProk in So I Married an Anti-Fan
Actually I have/had one, but it's out of date and the replacement never arrived.
Possibly the bank thought my income wasn't high enough anymore, being a student and all. ...

No credit card -> no reading on netcomics
Tried to read the korean version instead and put the korean text into google translate, but the characters are too small to recognise whether a syllable is 물,풀,몰,폴,몯,묻 ...
New Poll - Otaku
(16 posts, 2193 views) Posted: 1060d 15h, 36m ago by AndyProk in News
I don't know. I mean, I read a lot in general, so my manga consumption would need to be put in perspective.

On one hand, I have currently over 800 manga on my "completed" list here. But that's over a period of 6 years and some of those a ...
New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 5378 views) Posted: 1201d 3h, 59m 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 ...
New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 4474 views) Posted: 1215d 3h, 9m 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.
There's ...
New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 8455 views) Posted: 1739d 0h, 26m 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
(0 posts, 371 views) Posted: 1896d 21h, 22m ago by AndyProk in Hanayomesama wa 16-sai - 2nd season
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 ...
To know or not to know? Does Tooru know she's his sister?
(4 posts, 3411 views) Posted: 1898d 2h, 28m ago by AndyProk in Liar x Liar
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

where he cries when she tells him that her dad is being transferred to Ecuador and she has to g ...
Order by Last Updated/Released?
(0 posts, 475 views) Posted: 1901d 5h, 12m 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, 7039 views) Posted: 1909d 18h, 47m 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, 1948 views) Posted: 2028d 8h, 40m 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, 3041 views) Posted: 2140d 19h, 56m 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 - For an Essay

New Poll - Scanlation vs. Official
(7 posts, 999 views) Posted: 2364d 18h, 0m 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 ...
New Poll - After Ch 1
(7 posts, 511 views) Posted: 2369d 21h, 7m ago by AndyProk in News
If I really hate the art (rare), I drop it after the first chapter
Anything else: Maybe it'll get better. ...
Know when a new release of your favorite manga is available at MangaUpdates right into your mail
(16 posts, 7739 views) Posted: 2413d 20h, 57m ago by AndyProk in Suggestions & Bugs
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 ...
