|New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 8525 views) Posted: 314d 11h, 54m ago by greydrak in News
Agreed, I was looking through the options and this was the only one that fit, they all piss me off, and they all tie for most annoying parts of scanlations. ...
|New Poll - Optimal Story Length
(33 posts, 2733 views) Posted: 583d 10h, 12m ago by greydrak in News
This poll is kinda confusing for me...
It sort of makes me think more in terms of weekly(18~20 pages) vs monthly manga (~30 pages) instead of story arcs.
Chapter length isn't really a good comparison parameter, since it's more restricted by the publica ...
|I need some buying advice
(8 posts, 582 views) Posted: 626d 7h, 54m ago by greydrak in Games
Might make it easier if you list out some options you're considering too, since there's quite a lot of devices out there for gaming...
And from the looks of it, if you do decide on another handheld, the 3DS XL is a good one.
Much smoother buttons and way ...
|New Poll - Manga Price

Quote from switchgear
I'd say bordering average to expensive at about 10-12 CAD a book. A book that takes less than an hour to read and is mostly pictures (albeit fricking awesome pictures) should never cost as much as a paperback novel that can be t ...
|What Do You Think Of It?
(7 posts, 606 views) Posted: 665d 10h, 30m ago by greydrak in Sherlock
This seems alrite, but then again I've already seen the actual show, so this is a rather big step down when you compare the two different mediums.
Not to mention it's kinda sucky when you already know the answer to the mystery too, so I'm not ...

Quote from Zarallx
But he can understand them. just curious if he somehow would have lead a Sea King there in the first place. Just a possibility.
That sea king is the one that roam that region normally, Luffy didn't lure it over, it's usually there.
Luffy didn' ...

Guild Wars 2
Pokemon White 2
And hopefully soon, Code of Princess.
Hmm, sort of running out of games to play soon... ...
|What TV Shows Do You Watch?
(225 posts, 19190 views) Posted: 700d 9h, 53m ago by greydrak in Chatter Box
4 years after my last post, I'm currently watching these TV shows,
-Once upon a time.
-Hart of Dixie.
-Star Wars Clone wars.
More toons than shows, but I'm ...

Quote from Brokyl
It's a "healthy" break from all the action I think.
I would have preferred this to be an extra/omake, not a full regular chapter that's just delaying the action so it fits with the big "300". ...
|One Piece manga or anime ?
(19 posts, 1696 views) Posted: 821d 12h, 48m ago by greydrak in One Piece
The manga wins hands down.
The anime suffers from the usual problem that plagues nearly all adaptations, filler.
There is too much unnecessary pauses, drawn out scenes, all to drag out the ~20 mins.
The action in the manga is way more intense than the animated ...
|Diablo III best-seller
(17 posts, 1458 views) Posted: 827d 13h, 16m ago by greydrak in Games
Sold well, at launch...
Yet it's not super popular(outside of the diablo crowd) or widely acclaimed as "greatest game ever".
It's just another Diablo game, anyone who has experience with games in the last decade can tell you the game is ra ...

Keep in mind that status of series in whatever country is also only counted if it's printed in the volume forms.
So only change it if the actual volume is released, not if the chapters would count as a volume but hasn't been printed. ...
|Adult and Seinen
(11 posts, 1431 views) Posted: 837d 12h, 6m ago by greydrak in Suggestions & Bugs
Honestly, I think just keep it as is.
Content =/= demographics.
Demographic can have more prevalent genres that are more widely accepted by the target audience, but those genres does not define the demographic.
We really don't need to open up the poss ...

Search by genre.
It's a bit of work, using the genre filter up top and then searching using the categories.
It works though, just a bit of work.
|126 = CLAYMORE ~ END
(59 posts, 19951 views) Posted: 851d 3h, 15m ago by greydrak in Claymore
Whether it ends here or continues on as a different name, we'll find out when we find out.
I love the angry entitled leecher community we have, people don't even pay and support the mangakas and yet demand changes to how they do things without kn ...
|New Poll - Author vs. Artist
(36 posts, 3159 views) Posted: 870d 6h, 38m ago by greydrak in News
They're both equally important to me, I don't continue reading series of great art but crappy story, and vice versa.
In the end I don't follow artists/authors blindly, so I chose the "doesn't matter option". I may like certain artists/a ...
|Mass Effect 3 Boycott
(40 posts, 4710 views) Posted: 916d 7h, 4m ago by greydrak in Games
This whole anti-ME3 crap is just stupid...
If you get the collector's edition, the extra team member is included, as it should considering these people are paying $20 more than the regular edition people so obviously they deserve more for their dedication.
The ex ...
|Mangastream to STOP Scanlating Shounen Jump Series
(60 posts, 10964 views) Posted: 933d 2h, 2m ago by greydrak in Chatter Box
One less provider(willingly or otherwise) for paid online readers is one step further in the fight against them.
Never been that concerned with groups scanlating mainstream series like the Jump ones, we've already won when Viz licensed these series years a ...

People can discuss the hardware all they want, but it won't matter unless there are good software to support the hardware.
How useful the screen is will depend on how developers choose to use it, nothing that Nintendo can do about if the other devs uses it ...
|any good PC games?
(46 posts, 6205 views) Posted: 993d 2h, 3m ago by greydrak in Games
Well, I'd start with listing what you'd call "crap" and we'll then come up with lists that hopefully doesn't fit that description. What you consider as "FUN" would also help, just to help coming up with a good list for ya. ...
|What would you do if food you disliked was served?
(55 posts, 2858 views) Posted: 1051d 1h, 17m ago by greydrak in Chatter Box
I'll eat it, how much I eat will depend on if anyone's that insistent on making me eat it...
Unless I'm physically unable to eat something (allergy, intolerance, etc) I'll eat as much as I can since it's probably still food, and wasting food isn' ...
|Site Poll - Chat Box 154 - Animals in Manga
(23 posts, 1885 views) Posted: 1052d 11h, 14m ago by greydrak in Chatter Box
As long as the animals are well written and somewhat appealing looking it's fine.
I've read plenty of series where the animals are main characters as well as ones that are just filler pets, and so long as they do their job in the story it doesn't ma ...

I used to watch a lot of anime, and read a lot of manga..
Now I only read manga, since there's not much on in terms of quality anime that I actually care enough to watch... ...
|Site Poll - Chat Box 149 - Scanlation Groups and Their Projects
(16 posts, 1965 views) Posted: 1087d 7h, 55m ago by greydrak in Chatter Box
I voted for the last option, since it's rare that I'll find a group that I like every one of their projects.
I absolutely hate it when the group is sitting on raws of one series, slowly churning out releases of other projects and then get all angry when another gro ...
