|New Poll - Conventions
(16 posts, 304 views) Posted: 5d 17h, 7m ago by Suxinn in News
While I was in college, I went to anime/manga conventions pretty often. (About two or three times a year.) Now, I go about once every two years.
I enjoy small anime conventions a lot, but AX is always... a bit much. I enjoy Artist Alley, but trying to get into panels is s ...

|New Poll - Chinese Names in Japanese Manga
(20 posts, 652 views) Posted: 18d 14h, 56m ago by Suxinn in News
I'm Chinese, so I'm biased, and I personally prefer the proper Chinese pronunciations regardless of the situation (as long as the character in question is ethnically Chinese, of course).
Though, honestly, most a lot of Chinese names made up by Japane ...

With U.S. publishers, I always try to get later prints because there's occasionally mistakes in the first printing that gets fixed in the later ones. (One of my Spiral volumes, for instance, had an enormous translation error in the first printing on the last page, which ...

(15 posts, 548 views) Posted: 25d 16h, 12m ago by Suxinn in News
Oh, I didn't know that. My Japanese-American friends have always celebrated it, so I just assumed it was also a thing back in Japan. Guess not. No wonder their Gregorian calendar New Years always seems so extravagant compared to China or Taiwan' ...

A lot of other countries (Korea, Japan, Malaysia, etc.) also celebrate the Lunar New Year, so nah.

Quote from strawhat1987

Fairly often, when I'm doing some reading or whatnot that I need some white noise for.

The second half of Vinland Saga fits.
Shut Hell also has some of this in the second half.
Bloody Cross has this too, though the character's motivations are not revealed until near the end.
