New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4465 views) Posted: 280d 5h, 19m ago by hollabaloo in News
I voted "disagree." A lot of scanlators are hesitant to redo chapters that have already been scanlated, no matter how bad the translation is. Bad translations also tend to have a lot of clunky phrasing, and things like that really drive me up the wall. ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 12557 views) Posted: 1385d 23h, 1m ago by hollabaloo in News
It annoys the hell out of me. I would prefer it if the scanlation group just held on to the release for a few days longer instead of reading a release with bad spelling and grammar in it. ...
New Poll - Handling Criticism
(17 posts, 2705 views) Posted: 1398d 4h, 9m ago by hollabaloo in News
I subscribe to the "it's okay to like/dislike things but don't be a dick about it" philosophy. Then again, whenever I see the "if you don't like it don't read it!!!!!" excuse or the "all stories are cliche!!!!" excuse ...

uh...why? Serious question. ...
New Poll - Unwanted Pairing
(38 posts, 6578 views) Posted: 1464d 14h, 27m ago by hollabaloo in News
I'd keep reading because in the end I'm there for the story as a whole and not the romance, but I'm always a little disappointed when the final pairing is main character / first guy/girl he or she meets in the story. That goes double when the main ...
New Poll - Talking with Authors
(24 posts, 2992 views) Posted: 1639d 1h, 2m ago by hollabaloo in News
No way. There's way too much potential for people to take it too far and be creepy about it. I mean, if the author says 'hey, you can contact me through [social media] at [address/username/etc] if you like' then whatever, but anything farther th ...
New Poll - Character Age
(19 posts, 2055 views) Posted: 1667d 14h, 4m ago by hollabaloo in News
I don't care how old the protagonist is in comparison to my age. I just want to see more protagonists in their twenties or older, since there are more teenage protagonists in manga than I care to count. ...
New Poll - Marrying a Manga Character

The 'u mad' defense? Yawn. Try harder next time. ...
New Poll - Marrying a Manga Character
(56 posts, 5068 views) Posted: 1681d 2h, 47m ago by hollabaloo in News
"Increasing lack of truly feminine girls in the real world"? "Pledge their love to an ideal, gentle virtual person"?

Ahahaha wow you're a terrible person if you're not trolling ...
New Poll - Scanlation Watermarks
(113 posts, 11972 views) Posted: 1688d 5h, 49m ago by hollabaloo in News
I don't care about watermarks as long as they don't obscure the art or speech bubbles. It's annoying when they do, but I usually just shrug my shoulders and deal with it. It's pretty hard to complain about free manga unless the quality mak ...
New Poll - Manga in E-Book Format
(17 posts, 1541 views) Posted: 1758d 14h, 34m ago by hollabaloo in News
I already own an e-reader, and I'd definitely buy the e-book version if I could, because I'm sick of having manga take up so much space on my bookshelf. I want to put novels and other stuff in there! ...
New Poll - Manga in E-Book Format
(17 posts, 1541 views) Posted: 1758d 14h, 37m ago by hollabaloo in News
If it's not worth buying for you, then why do you still want to read it? Serious question, because doesn't liking something kind of imply that it's "buy-worthy" for you in some way? ...
chapter 1
(9 posts, 2002 views) Posted: 1778d 8h, 47m ago by hollabaloo in Nisekoi
Quote from switchgear
i like the fact the main characters had a long history going into the one shot and had not just met or reunited without remembering each other if that is the case at the beginning. I also don't like the second girl possibly being the girl from ...
New Poll - For an Essay
(97 posts, 9245 views) Posted: 1786d 10h, 12m ago by hollabaloo in News
The fuck? The fact that someone is actually asking this question makes my mind boggle. The Japanese are just people like the rest of us. ...
Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 5767 views) Posted: 1820d 7h, 2m ago by hollabaloo in News
I pretty much agree with this. I have no problems with restricting releases to forum members on their site or having IRC releases only. However, when scanlators make it impossible for latecomers to get all the releases for a series or even slip random hentai pag ...
New Poll - Cliffhangers
(9 posts, 437 views) Posted: 1820d 7h, 17m ago by hollabaloo in News
I only like cliffhangers if they're done well but they usually aren't, so :/ ...

Sexism - Grow a sack, women (or: Why I am not a Feminist)
(43 posts, 4858 views) Posted: 1824d 15h, 58m ago by hollabaloo in Chatter Box
Quote from Amber3
Makes me quite mad to see people who have no real idea of what they are talking about making such generalized articles like this! no


Well, there are quite a few idiots in this thread as well. (I'm talking about all the people basically saying " ...

Sexism - Grow a sack, women (or: Why I am not a Feminist)
(43 posts, 4858 views) Posted: 1848d 5h, 10m ago by hollabaloo in Chatter Box
I'm glad you don't agree, because I can tell that the people who wrote it is the standard privileged white male, possibly with a side order of men's rights douchebaggery. Also L O L he's basically saying that women aren't equal bec ...
About matias067
(131 posts, 12297 views) Posted: 1849d 8h, 55m ago by hollabaloo in News
Actions have consequences, and the release mod did something wrong that other people (and especially other scanlators) deserve to know about. I hardly see how this is public humiliation; all I see is the mods telling everyone "help us keep this guy in check, s ...
New Poll - Bad Art
(17 posts, 1659 views) Posted: 1875d 8h, 11m ago by hollabaloo in News
the only reason Oh Great gets any work period is because his artwork has tons of fanservice

Fixed that for you. ...
