New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 2170 views) Posted: 74d 1h, 41m ago by yuno19 in News
They're all decent, I suppose. Some has glaring weakness, whether in background, story progression, or story telling style. Not that I mean one style is inferior to other, but more to inconsistency.. I hope voters are well aware of each choice positive and neg ...
New Poll - Character Clones
(24 posts, 1357 views) Posted: 144d 4h, 55m ago by yuno19 in News
Haha, nice.

But I think the greatest offender is Adachi Mitsuru. However, unlike Ken, Mitsuru story is poised. It repeat the same style and joke over and over again, but they're done with a finesse I don't mind reading every bit of variation. cool laugh ...
New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 2674 views) Posted: 193d 17h, 28m ago by yuno19 in News
Eh, the question entertained wishful, yet useless, thinking. You think native-like fluency is impossible for second acquired language? You think you need to be born as Japanese to speak like Japanese? Come on! ...
New Poll - Turn for the Worse
(17 posts, 1336 views) Posted: 332d 19h, 50m ago by yuno19 in News
Is it basically the same question as last poll question? Mangaka can expand, extend, twist, deepen, or do anything to the story in their manga, as long as I as a reader still find them interesting, I will keep reading. ...
essence of manga
(4 posts, 441 views) Posted: 334d 22h, 29m ago by yuno19 in Manga General
The essence of manga? Black on white drawing with ocassional color page; adequate characterization for the sake of story progression; but ultimately alluring series of events to make readers want to know what happen next.

The essence of manga I'd enj ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota

Wow, what a controversial topic. Banning is inelegant. If you want to obscure something, better not tell the world they're banned. Too bad I don't have idea how they're better treated. ...
New Poll - Storing Physical Manga
(14 posts, 908 views) Posted: 500d 22h, 6m ago by yuno19 in News
Huh? I only bought copies after I know for sure that they're good. That means, I know all the content - thanks for scanlation - before I pay for them. After I bought them, I usually put them on my book rack. And that's all. ...
New Poll - Death of the MC

+1 to this.
But, really, this poll question is really good to make you stop and consider what's the best answer. To whoever submit this question, you're awesome! ...
New Poll - Manga Subscription

A work cannot find its way to you because of the artist alone. There are, most importantly, publisher. They publish works so that they can reach wider market. That is their job. Unless the artist also put some effort as publisher of her own work, your sentiment is ca ...

Return here one week later and congratulate me for winning the bet, because I bet that would be new character. Oh, and who the fuck use 1.3 MB gif as signature? ...

Completed Epics

A bit late into the fray, but I'd like to participate too. However, I'd like to ask you what did you mean by epic because, well, epic is some overly used word lately.

Do you mean epic as the greatly great scope of the story? Or when the characters underto ...

New Poll - Cheering for Couples
(41 posts, 4232 views) Posted: 1237d 18h, 52m ago by yuno19 in News
Is this an invitation for a debate? Because you've insulted me. (Or you can't help but write in such insulting manner). I see you're quite senior in this forum, have been a member longer than me. And I suspect you're past your teen age (I ju ...

I laugh my ass off seeing Luffy and crews so relaxed being put on a cage, sharing laugh and all. And that pervert Franky! sleeping on Robin's lap! Man, that some crazy steel of heart they possess. Also, Oda (might) made Flamingo to be the enemy this arc. I ...
New Poll - Cheering for Couples

I can't readily prejudge him/her since there are two possibilities;
1. He/She is anonymous, you can't track him/her down, responsibility thus be a minor issue.
2. He/She already has sound argument to back up his/her statement.

#1 is commonly occurre ...

Insipid? I think it's pretty cool. Rude awakening after years not well spent.
Can't help you though, something similar would be in History Strongest Disciple Kenichi, I forgot which volume. ...
seinen with subtle romance
(8 posts, 3776 views) Posted: 1243d 15h, 59m ago by yuno19 in I'm Looking For...
In disagreement with strixflash, Saikano took romance as center plot. Without romance, what else hold that weapon from completely destroys humanity? Well, that's that, unless what frika requested is romance as the main theme.

Mushishi has very subtle rom ...

Actually, it depend on character's struggle; who fight the fiercest. Too bad I don't read anymore manga with strong love polygon sentiment. The one that is close to that, which is Kaminomi, has no basis why I should even cheer any one of the girl. Anyw ...
What's so good about romance?

Because middle-aged woman in us dictated mangaka to show us who end up with who. Regardless the genre. Regardless the demography. ...

Strategy and Tactics in Warfare
(8 posts, 3148 views) Posted: 1248d 22h, 30m ago by yuno19 in I'm Looking For...
Formation in Ravages of Time is a bit too dreamy, although the strategem is real. Still the best manga out there though biggrin

For modern warfare, well, not very modern, try Gunka no Balzer.
For tactical bit and pieces, Jormungand is well suited.
For fantastic fantasy, Heu ...
New Poll - Wearing in Public

I can't believe nobody has an answer like mine,
"People's opinion mattered little for me. As long as I comfortable inside what I'm wearing, I'm doing fine. However, that's not implying that I suck for anime weardrobe. In the con ...
