Create a new group "Hey, Yo" and move all their releases there.
|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 783 views) Posted: 19d 21h, 47m 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 ...

Adapted to Anime
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 - Kidnapped Daughter

Cry... In Joy! She's their problem now.
If it is my daughter, she should be easily able to deal with some lousy demons.
Though I might try to negotiate with them on terms I would agree to take her back. ...

|New Poll - Skipping to the End

I only do that if I am thinking of dropping it, to see if it improves at least a little, or to give the story a bit of conclusion. ...
|New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 1162 views) Posted: 117d 0h, 20m 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 ...

No choices are suitable for me:
Read or watch adaptation (whichever it is) first, the original later. ...

|New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 2838 views) Posted: 180d 10h, 16m ago by SinsI in News
A mix of the first, sixth and last options for me - while I can understand common Japanese, my kanji knowledge is only elementary so I have to look for spoilers/summaries to understand long complex sentences. ...

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 ...
|New Poll - Manga Influencing Your Decision
(11 posts, 1190 views) Posted: 202d 5h, 33m ago by SinsI in News
Absolutely. My opinion on politics and politicians have been greatly influenced by "Akumetsu".
Also, stories like "No Mercy" from Kiyoshirou Inoue changed my view on the blackness of the world - news and films are depicting far too bright ...

Male. For computer games that use 3-rd person view, I use only female characters. If I have to stare at a character for hours and hours, I prefer looking at sexy elven girl's ass and not at hairy orc's butt. ...

Of course never, I feel good about it - "sharing is caring".
Helping spread the work of an author you enjoyed is a very good deed to both the author and his potential fans. I feel that Authors should profit from their works only after the users have alread ...
|New Poll - Appearances
(16 posts, 1591 views) Posted: 321d 7h, 7m ago by SinsI in News
One extremely important point based off one of the recent polls: some artists can only draw a very limited number of distinct character looks, with the rest of the differences defined by their hair color/style and outfit. If that is the case, any change in character app ...
|New Poll - Character Clones
(24 posts, 1847 views) Posted: 327d 17h, 54m ago by SinsI in News
Decided not to vote.
If the author uses "character clones", to detect it you need to actually read all those series. This implies that the author is good enough to seek another of his works after reading the first one. And that quality is what's importa ...

That data is meaningless if you don't take into account the falling EROI for oil and depletion of aquifers. Due to that, our food production capabilities might fall below the levels where we can support that peak population, and even 6 or 7 billion would be too muc ...

|New Poll - Switching Japanese Language

No way. I don't want a language where even a native speaker frequently can't read the text if he stumbles upon an unknown symbol (despite learning it for 2 years longer than in standard European school), so no languages that are written using hiero ...

(25 posts, 2899 views) Posted: 384d 9h, 3m ago by SinsI in News
Voted for "Plot Veers off into a bad direction", but the option I really wanted is missing - "story elements that attracted me in the first place disappeared". I.e. instead of light erotic comedy with character interaction story transformed into one ...
