New Poll - Eating Apples
(15 posts, 751 views) Posted: 70d 17h, 28m ago by ebisu in News
I didn't until I decided I had to learn how to peel apples. Since then, I always do it if I have the time, a dish and a knife on hand. Just rinse a lot with water, peel, cut pieces while rotating, and to eat. Easy to do while watching or reading something. Of course, I lik ...
New Poll - Manga Filler
(13 posts, 978 views) Posted: 93d 16h, 31m ago by ebisu in News
This one is hard. In anime you can tell them appart at a quick glance, but in manga you never know if they are actually fillers, side stories, a way to fill plot holes, building up, simply some character development with some ecchi in it, comic relief, etc. And what if that ...
New Poll - Long Series
(16 posts, 1000 views) Posted: 100d 9h, 26m ago by ebisu in News
The series with more volumes that I'm up to date is Hajime no Ippo (117v) and I still want more of it, so I've had to go with 'It's never too long' choice. I mean, nobody forces you to read all the volumes, so more volumes of good stu ...
New Poll - Good, bad, and the Ugly
(40 posts, 2354 views) Posted: 107d 18h, 26m ago by ebisu in News
I prefer them getting better with time. If it goes downhill or stale at some time compared to the past, there's the risk of me losing interest and not finishing it, even though the finale may be fantastic, which would be a shame. So bad->ok->great is my ch ...

New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2040 views) Posted: 170d 18h, 46m ago by ebisu in News
Anime I guess. I did not know how to read with 2-4 years old, but I did know how to press play on the VCR... Cartoons and Dragon Ball and TMNT. cool ...
New Poll - Anime/Manga Club

New Poll - Reviews
(12 posts, 1117 views) Posted: 198d 19h, 55m ago by ebisu in News
When the series has no or few reviews and the description is not enough, and it managed to pick my attention someway. 2nd should be my choice, but the 'regardless of how I like the series' does not fit at all because my decision depends on it too... ...
New Poll - Translation Sound Effects
(22 posts, 2412 views) Posted: 357d 9h, 24m ago by ebisu in News
I prefer always in the margins. Although I don't need them...

Sound effects are nearly always in hiragana and katakana so they are easy to read if you study the syllabaries, which just needs some effort, which will make your reading experience more enjoy ...
New Poll - Classic Manga
(41 posts, 3924 views) Posted: 390d 18h, 14m ago by ebisu in News
I chose within last year even though maybe I haven't read a classic this last year by the definition in the post (before I had read Black Jack too or Nausicca (and others) when they were already considered classic). I consider manga like Berserk, Hajime no ...
New Poll - RPG Class

Why are Warlock and Witch separate (there's Wizard too)? You get genderbent if you choose the other or what? bigrazz

It would depend on other factors too. If healing is easy with items, the gods influence, the versatility of the skills...

Well I know I'd like a c ...

Quote from T1
I wanna know why site owner accepts machine translations of novels as real translations of novels?

It makes no sense. roll eyes

Because he just does the same with manga? If you go case by case it will be neverending. ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)

I've discovered lots of good novels thanks to your website and I can keep track of them easily thanks to you. There's a fair chance I wouldn't have discovered them if not for your site, comments and genre tags. Having all of them in the same ...
New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 4039 views) Posted: 863d 20h, 49m ago by ebisu in News
That sounds very tricky. Would I learn how to read and write? It would be definitely handicapped by it where I live. What if you have more than one primary language...

Whatever, it sounds cool, but no thanks. bigrazz ...

(25 posts, 4019 views) Posted: 915d 20h, 20m ago by ebisu in I'm Looking For...
Some I didn't find in your lists after a quick peak. It's a varied bunch:
Hunter x Hunter (you can go with the anime here)
Toriko (very original)
Fairy Tail (very shonen, lots of unavoidable fanservice)
Zettai Karen Children (espers)
AKB49 (boy infiltrated in ido ...
New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 4043 views) Posted: 975d 9h, 56m ago by ebisu in News
I would be creator of chaos or bad villain.

I'm no good at doing bad but I can do it if it works in a roundabout way that I find fun. No need to cause damage because true evil plans are supposed to be beneficious to me in the end.

Who knows, my plan could go a ...

For more concretion, it's being hosted in the page of the one who is translating Only Sense Online and Antimagic Academy. Just look for one of these two here, go to its translator's twitter and you should find the page. (Daybreak is being hosted ther ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 9275 views) Posted: 1253d 17h, 12m ago by ebisu in News
"Read the most" would be shounen, because shounen has more releases more often. It's inevitable. biggrin

And there's the fact that I enjoy seinen shounen and action a lot. cool ...
