Manga Poll
Do you have a topic that is an immediate deal breaker if a manga series you were already reading suddenly featured that topic, such that you would stop reading the series (even if it was "tastefully" done)? For example: religion, rape, etc.
No topics offend me on principle
I used to have one, but not anymore
I can think of one deal breaker
There's many topics that would stop me from continuing a series

New Poll - Deal Breaker
(26 posts, 880 views) Posted: 6d 7h, 38m ago by Karonhioktha in News
Depends on how the content matter is presented. If it's done badly or for reasons just to make the manga "darker and edgier", I'll probably drop it. I have a few topics that will make me skeptical, and can drop on a dime if it's not pre ...

New Poll - Manga into Anime
(14 posts, 325 views) Posted: 13d 5h, 26m ago by Karonhioktha in News
I went with Rushed story and/or skipping chapters. Both happened already in a recent anime.
They rushed through the equivalent of 6 chapters, and then skipped a whole arc in just 4 episodes already. It's one of my favorite manga being adapted too, so I' ...

Your favorite manga is being adapted into an anime.
What are you most worried about concerning the adaption?
- poor quality animation
- bad character designs/deviate from the manga designs
- poor voice acting choices

New Poll - Hidden Hobby?

Yes, I hide it. My siblings know, as well as some friends from high-school/college since back then I didn't hide it at all.
I now hide it due to my age and profession. I'm at my mid-20s, and flaunting that I like anime/manga seems juvenile especially with the ...

New Poll - Converting for the Fandom

Nope. I keep my hobby to myself, I don't really like the idea of pushing my interests on to others.
My sister and brother are also into anime/manga, but I never really asked how they got interested. If anything, I'll try introducing them to series they may be ...

Feel free to modify these numbers.

Even if the series fully absorbs my interest, it would stay in my backlog for a while.
Looking in my reading/on-hold lists, there's a good number of fully scanlated series I have yet to finish. I just get pre-occupied with other manga, usually if it's being relea ...
New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?

It was manga for me. Probably why I still prefer it to anime today.

I was watching anime since I was probably 8, but didn't actually know it was anime, just thought it was another cartoon. Then my friend gave me a copy of Inuyasha and I was hooked on all thing ...

Kono Oto Tomare! may seem a bit different, but it's a great one.
Same with Ballroom e youkoso
Senpai, Sore Hitokuchi Kudasai! is a fun little comedy
Otome Youkai Zakuro is a seinen, but feels more like a josei
Seigi no Mikata is a funny shoujo, unfortunately ...

Assuming you've been reading manga for a while now, has the amount of manga chapters you read a day gone up, or down?

Within the last year.
Recently finished The Rose of Versailles, and I'm currently reading Cyborg 009. I finished Akira and Please Save My Earth a while back. So I guess I have sporadic times where I decide to read the classics. ...

Not playing because I'm not interested

I like the Pokemon series but mobile stuff never interested me.

New Poll - Changing Tastes

I started with manga about 13 years ago. I was open to almost every genre. As I got older though, I found what I like and don't like. So, in my case, my taste has gotten a lot narrower.

I used to read lots of those generic shoujo, school life, and shounen stuff.

New Poll - Forgetting the Story
(16 posts, 1590 views) Posted: 482d 6h, 13m ago by Karonhioktha in News
It depends on how complicated the story can get.
If it's an over-convoluted shounen, it can take only a couple of chapters of me not reading to forget what was going on.
If it were a nice slice-of-life though, I could jump into the new chapter with no issue.

May seem weird, but just hearing a song I haven't heard in a real long time brought a smile to my face. The song Reckless Fire.
