New Poll - Alignment

Doing whatever you feel like is Chaotic Evil. ...
New Poll - Translating Money
(19 posts, 1140 views) Posted: 49d 14h, 40m 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, 890 views) Posted: 88d 14h, 56m 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, 1052 views) Posted: 155d 4h, 16m 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, 1637 views) Posted: 163d 18h, 31m 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 - MMORPG Classes
(21 posts, 1710 views) Posted: 176d 1h, 22m ago by SinsI in News
I'd play something like WOW druid - the one that can do all the roles. ...
New Poll - Translating Jokes/Puns
(12 posts, 1011 views) Posted: 191d 17h, 35m 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, 1980 views) Posted: 228d 1h, 29m 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
(24 posts, 1800 views) Posted: 239d 2h, 51m ago by SinsI in News
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. ...
Yo Manga vs. Hey Manga

Create a new group "Hey, Yo" and move all their releases there.

New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 2192 views) Posted: 259d 22h, 1m 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 ...
New Poll - Categories

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, 3708 views) Posted: 315d 7h, 43m 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, 2459 views) Posted: 350d 17h, 49m 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, 1516 views) Posted: 357d 0h, 33m 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 ...
New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 2934 views) Posted: 385d 21h, 5m ago by SinsI in News
No choices are suitable for me:

Read or watch adaptation (whichever it is) first, the original later. ...
New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 6629 views) Posted: 406d 16h, 0m ago by SinsI in News
Censorship of offensive material pisses me off the most in manga. ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 3365 views) Posted: 420d 10h, 29m 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. ...
Red Hawk Scanlations Closed
(42 posts, 6611 views) Posted: 430d 11h, 17m 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, 1384 views) Posted: 442d 5h, 46m 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 - Manga Ads
(29 posts, 2394 views) Posted: 501d 12h, 46m ago by SinsI in News
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, 3100 views) Posted: 539d 8h, 58m 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, 3576 views) Posted: 547d 5h, 40m 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, 1895 views) Posted: 561d 7h, 20m 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 ...
