|New Poll - Other Settings
(14 posts, 323 views) Posted: 14d 7h, 36m 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, 1397 views) Posted: 83d 23h, 13m 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, 1005 views) Posted: 122d 23h, 30m 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, 1116 views) Posted: 189d 12h, 50m 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, 1761 views) Posted: 198d 3h, 4m 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 ...

(12 posts, 1061 views) Posted: 226d 2h, 8m 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, 2115 views) Posted: 262d 10h, 3m 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. ...

|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 2339 views) Posted: 294d 6h, 34m 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 ...

If it is my daughter, she should be easily able to deal with some lousy demons.

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, 1547 views) Posted: 391d 9h, 7m 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
