|New Poll - Character Bio
(11 posts, 569 views) Posted: 37d 17h, 3m ago by SinsI in News
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? ...
|New Poll - American Comics as Manga
(19 posts, 1012 views) Posted: 46d 7h, 18m ago by SinsI in News
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 ...

|New Poll - Translating Jokes/Puns
(12 posts, 747 views) Posted: 74d 6h, 22m ago by SinsI in News
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, 1583 views) Posted: 110d 14h, 16m 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. ...

If we are talking D&D - Artificer, make some golems to fight for me and stay out of harm's way myself. If we are talking WOW - Druid, as various shapeshifting powers can allow to heal myself or run away if things turn bad. ...

Create a new group "Hey, Yo" and move all their releases there.
|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 1852 views) Posted: 142d 10h, 48m 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 ...

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
(20 posts, 2183 views) Posted: 233d 6h, 36m ago by SinsI in News
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, 1378 views) Posted: 239d 13h, 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 ...

Censorship of offensive material pisses me off the most in manga. ...
|New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 3122 views) Posted: 302d 23h, 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, 1289 views) Posted: 324d 18h, 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 ...

|New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 2849 views) Posted: 421d 21h, 45m ago by SinsI in News
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, 1756 views) Posted: 443d 20h, 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, 2061 views) Posted: 450d 6h, 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 ...
