New Poll - MU Years
(64 posts, 1474 views) Posted: 90d 12h, 30m ago by SinsI in News
In that case, isn't it better to make the poll "How soon did you join after you first started visiting MangaUpdates?".
Expecting people to track those dates is kinda silly - unless there was something personally memorable around the time of joining, n ...
New Poll - MU Years

Strange poll, as all the data is available in the Profile section...

New Poll - Cosplay Opposites
(22 posts, 632 views) Posted: 112d 0h, 47m ago by SinsI in News
I think an extremely important part - gender of the one answering - is missing from the poll.
Please change it so that the options are differentiated on that basis, too.

New Poll - Mediums
(27 posts, 692 views) Posted: 126d 4h, 58m ago by SinsI in News
How the hell would I know? It'd obviously depend on which one is the best. ...
New Poll - Books
(28 posts, 996 views) Posted: 160d 15h, 43m ago by SinsI in News
Electronic or library.

Storage space is extremely expensive where I live. From my calculations (average book price is 7$, rental price is 30$/1m^2 per month, you can store 100 books on 1m^2), if I don't re-read every book every 21 months or less, it is actua ...
New Poll - Aggregate Sites
(40 posts, 1341 views) Posted: 175d 1h, 13m ago by SinsI in News
They suck for many reasons:
1) They take up precious screen space
2) They contain things that distract from the content
3) (sometimes) far worse UI - no keyboard navigation, need to wait for next page to download each time, etc.
4) They require you to be online

So ...
New Poll - Mortality
(43 posts, 1573 views) Posted: 188d 19h, 36m ago by SinsI in News
If you can be killed by sickness, how can you be called "invincible"?

I'd choose immortality with possibility of death by suicide. ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2179 views) Posted: 194d 21h, 58m ago by SinsI in News
What about family? Friends? All the favorite characters from other manga?

Just No. ...
New Poll - Archive Fansubs
(23 posts, 865 views) Posted: 202d 22h, 28m ago by SinsI in News
No. I used to, but nowdays it is much faster/more convenient to just redownload it again instead of looking for the HDD with that particular show. ...
New Poll - Fan Service
(37 posts, 2324 views) Posted: 237d 19h, 19m ago by SinsI in News
A little hardcore sex scene in the beginning of a non-ecchi series can help set a "Mature" tone, signaling that the author is not going to resort to kindergarten level of romance and psychology. So, overall, I think it is a huge boon.
OTOH, if the "fan ...
New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 1748 views) Posted: 266d 3h, 38m ago by SinsI in News
The ones with greatest amount of complex text are the hardest to scanlate.
Which means most of the Action series prevalent in Shounen are out of the competition. Everything else is on a case-by-case basis.

At a glance, Skip Beat (3-4 times normal amount of text ...
New Poll - Last Gen Consoles
(52 posts, 2384 views) Posted: 279d 16h, 52m ago by SinsI in News

New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 2443 views) Posted: 286d 17h, 6m ago by SinsI in News
230 full non-hentai multi-volume series(3+ volumes each).
I don't count oneshots/one volume series, as there is always a question of how to count anthologies, especially by the same author - as one or as twenty series? And what if they are connected by a c ...
New Poll - Mascot Characters
(39 posts, 2157 views) Posted: 293d 22h, 10m ago by SinsI in News
>They're alright as long as they serve a functional purpose

Example: Menchi from Excel Saga ...
New Poll - Spoilers
(16 posts, 1148 views) Posted: 308d 2h, 3m ago by SinsI in News
I'd openly tell the contents of that spoiler - but present them as speculation. ...
New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 8493 views) Posted: 314d 17h, 20m ago by SinsI in News
When scanlation stops due to a Cease & Desist - and subsequent license stops right where the scanlation ended. ...
New Poll - Media Type
(43 posts, 2482 views) Posted: 322d 2h, 23m ago by SinsI in News
Really depends on the type of story.
I can cheat and answer "game", because games can be any of the other medium as well (except for theatrical play) ...
New Poll - Foreign Films
(40 posts, 2400 views) Posted: 342d 22h, 50m ago by SinsI in News
Sentences and words in English are short, other languages are far more verbose - and for subs it makes a huge difference: the shorter the text, the less it covers the picture and the less time you need to read it. That means less distracting from the action on scre ...
New Poll - Foreign Films
(40 posts, 2400 views) Posted: 343d 1h, 1m ago by SinsI in News
Depends on a case-by-case basis.
Sometimes our dubbers use such great VA's that they become The Voice of the actor; making it feel that anything else is a cheap imitation and not a viable option, even if I know the language in question.

But such cases are ...
New Poll - Hating Art
(32 posts, 2128 views) Posted: 349d 17h, 35m ago by SinsI in News
In my case, "All the characters look the same/generic" and "hate certain styles of manga art" means exactly the same thing. ...
New Poll - Scanlation Quality
(21 posts, 1542 views) Posted: 371d 1h, 15m ago by SinsI in News
Visual quality has improved, but scanlations are not only about the cleanness of image or text formatting. Literacy has declined sharply: bad grammar (I'm sick and tired of all the "your/you're" mistakes I see every day), poor vocabulary ( ...
New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 4885 views) Posted: 378d 1h, 52m ago by SinsI in News
It is OK as a one-time episodic sex experiment, but I don't like it then it escalates to the point of being a Romance. ...
New Poll - Imperfect Art and/or Story
(31 posts, 2116 views) Posted: 392d 1h, 16m ago by SinsI in News
My choice is Good Visuals with Average storytelling.

I really can't stand the generic look of girls that became so prevalent in anime and manga (i.e. Ro-Kyu-Bu, Fate/Prisma Ilya, Idolmaster, Lucky Star, anything Tohou and the like) - the character design is so ...
New Poll - Continent
(36 posts, 2598 views) Posted: 403d 5h, 20m ago by SinsI in News
It's 6 continents. Asia and Europe are not continents. ...
New Poll - Continent
(36 posts, 2598 views) Posted: 403d 15h, 22m ago by SinsI in News
The answer is definite - it is Eurasia. Poll creator doesn't know what a "continent" is. ...
