New Poll - Cosplay Opposites
(22 posts, 516 views) Posted: 74d 8h, 30m ago by calstine in News
I have no interest in cosplay whatsoever. The way I see it, cosplaying is about identifying with a character to the point that you feel one with them. I don't think I've ever seen a person in a work of fiction who resembles me in any way other than superfi ...
New Poll - Can't Sleep
(23 posts, 541 views) Posted: 82d 1h, 44m ago by calstine in News
Studying, of course. I bitterly regret the day I chose to try for medical college; it's still only my first year as a med student, and I'm already falling asleep in the middle of the day and all over the place because there's too much damn work to do... A ...
New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 1657 views) Posted: 229d 3h, 15m ago by calstine in News
Has to be seinen. There are lots of reasons, the major ones being: no furigana at all, complex topics (I mean, some seinen have medical, mechanical, historical, etc. terminology that'd be difficult even for people well-versed in colloquial Japanese), long, com ...
New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 4702 views) Posted: 341d 4h, 27m ago by calstine in News
Girl, read both BL and GL, but only the ones that have an actual story and aren't just porn from beginning to end. ...
Bisexual Love Triangle

Quote from ImaginaryWishes
Crush on You should fit.


I'm afraid you're wrong about that. In COY, both the guy and the girl like the same guy. ...
New Poll - Romance Scenarios
(22 posts, 1888 views) Posted: 362d 4h, 19m ago by calstine in News
Option 6 for me.

I don't like romance all that much, but if I read something with a prominent love story theme, I prefer having multiple couples who all get time in the spotlight, rather than one super-alpha couple that's always making up and breaking up an ...
Nine reasons to wish MU Happy Birthday!

Here's to hoping you'll live to a ripe old age, MU! ...
Is it really shounen-ai?
(2 posts, 572 views) Posted: 366d 8h, 24m ago by calstine in Coda
I'm pretty sure it isn't shounen-ai. It was published in a shoujo magazine, so it's unlikely to have anything other than blink-and-you-miss-it subtext. You could ask the scanlators - just to be extra certain. ...
What is mangaupdates to you?
(24 posts, 1636 views) Posted: 403d 23h, 50m ago by calstine in Manga General
Quote from RoxFlowz
Manga are my drug and mangaupdates is my dealer.


This statement is full of win. And saved me from having to come up with a rejoinder of my own biggrin

MU is one of my top 3 most visited and favourite sites, and has been for close to half a deca ...
New Poll - Rating Series
(35 posts, 2390 views) Posted: 446d 5h, 55m ago by calstine in News
Second option for me, but not because I'm easy when it comes to ratings. If I don't enjoy the story, I just stop reading in the middle without bothering to complete the series (unless it's a oneshot or a single/double-volume manga, in which case I ...
New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 4507 views) Posted: 452d 4h, 24m ago by calstine in News
I see the wording of the two options has been changed. In that case, I vote for option 1, since it's closer to what I like to see in my manga and anime.

On another note: I've noticed that quite a few people who pick no.1 are students of Japanese language ...
New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 4507 views) Posted: 453d 3h, 57m ago by calstine in News
That's a tough choice. I'm pretty adamant that they keep the honorifics, because you can never convey the formality of -sama, -dono, the neutrality of -san, -kun, or the friendly familiarity of -chan, -tan, etc. with any kind of English honorific (or the lack th ...
New Poll - Gender Bender in Real Life 2
(57 posts, 5311 views) Posted: 481d 0h, 53m ago by calstine in News
Never. Not even for a few minutes. I'm perfectly happy with the gender I was born into. Obviously, I'm fine with my originally having being born as a guy, but to become male after being female first (or vice versa)? No way. I can see why some people m ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 12720 views) Posted: 507d 19h, 43m ago by calstine in News
Quote from Damnedman
Voting for yaoi is like beating a dead horse, but that's the only genre that I actually could not finish even one story. I was under the impression that there's a more or less even split between guys and girls on this site, so why is t ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 12720 views) Posted: 509d 3h, 31m ago by calstine in News
Another poll with a foregone conclusion; we're obviously running out of good poll topics. Everyone knows yaoi will win this one (or lose it, depending on your point of view).

I voted for hentai, but, well... ...
Is it really shounen-ai?
(4 posts, 1436 views) Posted: 535d 6h, 34m ago by calstine in Hakkenden
I agree. Admittedly, I haven't read past the point at which Bliss stopped releasing, but there isn't the slightest hint of shounen-ai in the first 3 volumes, save for some of the silly dude-looks-like-a-girl jokes you find in every other manga.
And this was origin ...
Dimples survey
(11 posts, 875 views) Posted: 569d 14h, 4m ago by calstine in Chatter Box
@OP: The survey isn't accessible, you know. It keeps asking me to log in, and it's weird to create an account at some site or the other just for that.

Hmm... I never much cared for dimples, myself. I don't have one, and I've only seen a cou ...
can i read part 2-3 befor part 1
(2 posts, 596 views) Posted: 572d 15h, 47m ago by calstine in Kaiji
You should watch the anime of part 1 first, I think. It must be more-or-less identical to the manga, hence why this part of the series hasn't been scanlated. ...
New Poll - Platonic vs. Romantic
(17 posts, 3960 views) Posted: 585d 16h, 5m ago by calstine in News
I don't think the poll is so much narrow-minded as it is unnecessary. The conclusion is foregone: romantic wins. I voted for platonic, but, eh...I know a losing battle when I see one. It's becoming more difficult by the day to find anything, in any medium, that ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 7628 views) Posted: 593d 2h, 23m ago by calstine in News
As a proofreader, I often take notice of SPAG errors, and I'm always annoyed by them. Especially flawed grammar, which sometimes makes it nigh impossible to grasp the correct meaning behind the dialogue.

I actually don't mind it when the scan qu ...
New Poll - Handling Criticism
(17 posts, 1653 views) Posted: 607d 1h, 40m ago by calstine in News
I generally don't care about popular opinion (most likely because it so often differs from my own that I've become accustomed to it over the years), but if I really loved the story in question, I might get somewhat annoyed -- especially if the criticism is ba ...
Reason for "Tragedy" tag

Yes, an important character does die.

It's definitely Yuri.
(5 posts, 860 views) Posted: 660d 5h, 31m ago by calstine in Candy (SUZUKI Yufuko)
Quote from Cthylla
It doesn't show them having sex though, so I wouldn't really count it


I agree with this. The way MU defines it, I'd say 'yuri' is when there's actual graphic sex depicted in the story, not when they mention it in p ...
FRIENDSHIP
(7 posts, 781 views) Posted: 673d 20h, 17m ago by calstine in Chatter Box
This is something I used to vaguely wonder about back when I was young and naive enough to believe in 'friendship' -- the kind you see in fiction.
But now that I'm older and more cynical, and have come to realize that not one person I'm ac ...
