|New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate

Certain Seinen, because they cover niche topics like calligraphy or Italian cooking or history that often need additional research, and probably tend to have a fair amount of text more than shounen or others. ...

I think it's a good idea.
Hopefully with the lure of free(?) advertising for their products, content owners back off MU for a bit. But I'm concerned it could also make content owners more "aware" of MU. Can anyone please weigh in?
Should M ...

it was around the time when Iris Zero became on hiatus that i start reading it..
That must have been devastating.

Tough question. I picked #4 because it's happened most often (it seems), but #3 is probably more true for me. #2 would apply, but I tend to read a whole cluster of projects from a given group, so there's always something to read. #1 doesn't see ...
|New Poll - Imperfect Art and/or Story
(31 posts, 4023 views) Posted: 1334d 15h, 38m ago by Harimau in News
I think it strongly depends on the kind of manga and the story they're trying to tell. A good action manga lets you see the movement of the characters - too much detail can actually be a drawback as you lose the sense of motion and it feels like a static but be ...

Why isn't there the cunning/clever option?
My favourite characters are always the smart ones.

|New Poll - Rating Series
(35 posts, 4317 views) Posted: 1424d 20h, 19m ago by Harimau in News
Definitely someone who rates the extremes.
Usually I have to be impressed enough to go to the series page and rate it a 10, or on the other hand, disgusted enough to go to the series page and rate it a 1, before promptly removing it from my reading list. ...

Damn. I really liked some of the shorter series (like 4 volumes), and I love Kimi no Knife. I'm very glad to hear it'll be picked up by IMS though. ...

I guess the first, shall we say, "embrace", didn't make the list.
After running all the way down the list, the word "first" stopped meaning anything to me. I guess I'll go with first vacation - I haven't been on a proper holiday (o ...
|New Poll - Side Stories
(15 posts, 2606 views) Posted: 1642d 11h, 59m ago by Harimau in News
What this guy said.
Basically, it's about quality. So in general:
Main story quality > Side story arc quality > occasional one chapter side story quality
The reason I put one chapter side-story as lowest on the list is because, generally, you can't really d ...
|New Poll - Paper Quality
(16 posts, 2801 views) Posted: 1655d 14h, 43m ago by Harimau in News
I think it's more a matter of distribution.
I mean, the appeal of scanlation is that it's digital, it's discreet, it's "on-demand" and it's DRM-free - not necessarily that it's free.
Scanlated material is more convenient in the ...

Quote from VitaX
It's probably the end of the series we know as Claymore in name, then a sequel or a name change will come about.
I agree with this. There'll be a Claymore Act 2, or something. ...
