New Poll - Looking Your Age
(32 posts, 2897 views) Posted: 768d 8h, 48m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
I'm on the fence, it's ok if it's just a few characters, sometimes people just don't look their age, but if all the high schoolers look like they're in preschool then yeah, it's a problem. I myself look a lot younger then I actually am ...
New Poll - Life Role
(45 posts, 3489 views) Posted: 824d 4h, 21m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
I'd want to be a minor character, I mean, have you ever seen a main character this isn't busy? How can I spend all day reading manga and watching TV if I'm being hunted down by demons, saving the world, being harassed by a harem of wom ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 140 - Scanlation vs. Official
(26 posts, 2987 views) Posted: 1152d 22h, 29m ago by Tenshinchigi in Chatter Box
I don't go out of my way to compare, but sometimes the official translation uses really crappy phrases, Like "Turn into a freak" vs "Turn into a monster" ...
New Poll - Original vs. Adaptation
(22 posts, 880 views) Posted: 1215d 21h, 2m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
I agree completely. It should be loyal like Dragon Ball (but without the fillers) or completely different like the Escaflone series.

Black Cat is a good example of doing it wrong. ...

New Poll - Local Comics

You just haven't been looking in the right places You should check out imprints instead of the Parent company, or an independent company. I suggest looking up comics done by Dark Horse or Vertigo for story based comic books. Slave Labor Graphics h ...

They aren't, you can find pretty much anything in american comics. Like JtHM (Johnny the Homicidal Maniac) Comics in general refers to All types of Graphic Novels, from comic strips in the Sunday paper all the way to comic books witch are full of superh ...

New Poll - Local Comics
(24 posts, 798 views) Posted: 1300d 0h, 55m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
I agree with you for the most part, but I think the problem has less to do with the lack of and ending and more to do with a never ending climax. There are some long running comics I read that aren't as bad as Spier-man or the X-Men and that's mostly ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 113 - Paying for Online Manga
(45 posts, 3705 views) Posted: 1412d 1h, 54m ago by Tenshinchigi in Chatter Box
While I'd rather have a physical copy, that's just not happening cost wise. I've got hundreds of series I read, and buying physical copies of all of those series would not only bankrupt me, but I'd have absolutely nowhere to put them. I have ...

ever notice how funny things taste when your nose is stuffy? That's because taste is dependent on smell. So actually a bunch of people chose to lose 2 senses not just one. But hey, no one's expected to think that far ahead. ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 81 - Manga..is Anime?
(32 posts, 3165 views) Posted: 1719d 0h, 29m ago by Tenshinchigi in Chatter Box
It happens all the time, like "What's that anime you're reading?"

you WATCH anime and READ manga, it's like the difference between Comics and Cartoons!

Though I've even gotten "What's the anime your wa ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 75 - Anime Adaptations
(22 posts, 2362 views) Posted: 1768d 18h, 35m ago by Tenshinchigi in Chatter Box
I think a series can be treated 2 different ways. The story can be followed religiously or it can be completely different. Anything else ruins it. Like the Black Cat anime. It was to close to the manga to avoid comparisons, but not close enough that people who read ...

20 Years in Prison for Buying Manga
(138 posts, 6301 views) Posted: 2077d 7h, 4m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
Are you sure? I know that originally Drawn Kiddy porn was illegal, and then some judge declared it unconstitutional, but the President of the USA added that law again just recently, can a supreme judge really over turn it that easily?

As for the obscenity charge, is ...
20 Years in Prison for Buying Manga
(138 posts, 6301 views) Posted: 2077d 15h, 42m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
Yeah, well the point of the law is to prevent pedo's from escalating.

If they look like kids pedo's are gonna jack off to them, it doesn't matter what age they are in context. I mean sure I might be legal at 21, but I look around 12, meaning that any ...

From what I understand the series that got him thrown into jail were Shotacon series, ie. Kiddy porn, which is illegal not only in America, but virtually every contrey in the world.

And yes, that includes drawn pictures too. It was only recently added to Americas laws, a ...
Ever been addicted?/Flow of Emotions
(53 posts, 5680 views) Posted: 2078d 16h, 1m ago by Tenshinchigi in Manga General
I have to admit the same has happened to me, but not really with a particular series.

I'm addicted to reading. I could die of anticipation just waiting for another chapter of anything to come out. I've read every series I've ever read multiple times, ...

Are you looking specifically for space operas? If not I suggest Pumpkin Scissors. It's hard to explain but if i had to categorize it I'd call it WWII, Military, sci-fi/steam punk ...

New Poll - Usefulness of Beta Recommendation System
(15 posts, 416 views) Posted: 2160d 19h, 44m ago by Tenshinchigi in News
Despite being in the majority of the last poll I do spend lots of money on manga. I have over $2000 worth in my room at this moment. It's filling my bookcases and lining the walls. I also have somewhere around 80GB of manga saved to my HD. I might be a b ...
