|New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 11298 views) Posted: 583d 7h, 36m 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, 3391 views) Posted: 852d 5h, 53m 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, 698 views) Posted: 895d 3h, 35m 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, 716 views) Posted: 934d 6h, 12m 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, 21834 views) Posted: 969d 5h, 34m 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, 1892 views) Posted: 1090d 8h, 29m 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, 1594 views) Posted: 1096d 8h, 57m 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, 1762 views) Posted: 1106d 7h, 47m 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, 20924 views) Posted: 1119d 22h, 56m 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, 3656 views) Posted: 1139d 2h, 19m 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, 5165 views) Posted: 1185d 2h, 45m 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, 11782 views) Posted: 1201d 21h, 44m 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, 6740 views) Posted: 1261d 21h, 44m 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. ...

(55 posts, 3073 views) Posted: 1319d 20h, 58m 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, 2098 views) Posted: 1321d 6h, 55m 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, 2074 views) Posted: 1356d 3h, 36m 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 ...
