|New Poll - Release Schedules
(12 posts, 532 views) Posted: 37d 22h, 44m 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. ...
|New Poll - Character Bio
(11 posts, 818 views) Posted: 104d 12h, 4m 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, 1303 views) Posted: 113d 2h, 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, 948 views) Posted: 141d 1h, 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, 1824 views) Posted: 177d 9h, 17m 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 - RPG Class

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, 2033 views) Posted: 209d 5h, 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 ...
|New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 3466 views) Posted: 264d 15h, 31m ago by SinsI in News
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, 2320 views) Posted: 300d 1h, 37m 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, 1437 views) Posted: 306d 8h, 21m 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. ...

Censorship of offensive material pisses me off the most in manga. ...
|New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 3233 views) Posted: 369d 18h, 17m 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. ...

(42 posts, 6450 views) Posted: 379d 19h, 4m ago by SinsI in News
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, 1337 views) Posted: 391d 13h, 34m 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 ...

The only ads I wouldn't mind is for the merchandise (or hard copy) of that very manga/novel. ...
|New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 2982 views) Posted: 488d 16h, 46m 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. ...
|New Poll - Pirate Remorse
(34 posts, 3473 views) Posted: 496d 13h, 28m ago by SinsI in News
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, 1821 views) Posted: 510d 15h, 8m 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, 2138 views) Posted: 517d 1h, 55m 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 ...
