|New Poll - Long Anime
(9 posts, 171 views) Posted: 1d 19h, 55m ago by SinsI in News
Sometimes even 2 episodes are already too long - and sometimes you watch 52 episodes in a row and think "what, is it over already? The story has just started, surely they can make at least 10x more!" ...
|New Poll - Long Series
(16 posts, 679 views) Posted: 38d 19h, 54m ago by SinsI in News
It's not the number of volumes, but the amount of time that determines how long is too long.
If somebody is able to churn out 200+ volumes in a year - it is not too long.
If someone takes 3 or 4 decades to create 5 volumes - it is.

Combination of "Worried about what people might think of me" and "Not interested in the first place".
I want merchandise that doesn't scream "I'm otaku", merchandise that to people not in the know won't loo ...
|New Poll - Other Settings
(14 posts, 1066 views) Posted: 165d 1h, 23m ago by SinsI in News
Everything is good as long as it is not North America, Europe or Russia - typical Japanese depiction of those settings is too shallow and makes me cringe.
As for the setting I'd "most like to see", I wouldn't mind more Amazons, so voted S ...

|New Poll - Translating Money
(19 posts, 2237 views) Posted: 234d 17h, 0m ago by SinsI in News
Leaving it as is is not really an option - readers should be able to relate to the amount, as a "billion" is not that much if it is in Korean Won, while even a hundred bitcoins is already a lot!
But if you are translating it, you have to take into account the setting- i.e ...
|New Poll - Release Schedules
(12 posts, 1382 views) Posted: 273d 17h, 17m ago by SinsI in News
Bulk releases are the best - you don't have to track down all the individual chapter releases, and it is enough to entertain you for a while, allowing to fully immerse into the manga in question instead of just dipping into a chapter or two. ...

About blood types: I wonder, if we check all the various characters that are supposed to be related by blood, is it possible to find evidence of unfaithfulness? How careful are the authors with genetics? ...

I might try it:
Greatly depends on the degree of creative freedom allowed to the mangaka - so absolutely "no way" for something extremely restrictive like Superman, but "Yes, Of course!" for something completely free like Hellina, Dejah T ...

Alwayson a case by case basis. Ideally, if the "equivalent joke" is very close, it is number 4 - but far too often 3 or 2 are the only ways. 1st should never be an option. ...
|New Poll - Wrong Genre
(20 posts, 2522 views) Posted: 413d 3h, 50m ago by SinsI in News
I mainly choose my favorite mangaka based on their art, and about the only genre I dislike is comedy 4-comas which are not known for being demanding in that departmentt - so the answer is skip it entirely. ...

|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 2779 views) Posted: 445d 0h, 22m ago by SinsI in News
I find almost all American comics to cliche - since they are, mostly, from long-established franchises, authors have not enough creative freedom, and blatant censorship that exist in the USA doesn't help either.
Latin American comics fare a bit better, but the ...

Nothing says "this manga is of at least passable quality" like people willing to spend time and money to adapt it into a different media.
From the unlisted - Borderline H takes the top. Those stories don't deteriorate into pointless fa ...

|New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 1665 views) Posted: 542d 2h, 54m ago by SinsI in News
The spin-offs I found interesting:
1) those that just share the world but none or only a tiny amount of the cast (i.e. Devilman Lady vs Devilman)
2) those where the original has two sides facing off and in the spin-off you are following the other side.
(i.e. Sekai Seifuku anim ...

Doubt it. Usually groups close by gradually becoming inactive so that, eventually, one of the remaining members makes the farewell post - while keeping the site intact at least for a while afterwards.
Here we have a group that kept making releases (Nisekoi was re ...
