New Poll - Books
(27 posts, 602 views) Posted: 27d 18h, 28m 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, 960 views) Posted: 42d 3h, 59m 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, 1070 views) Posted: 55d 22h, 22m 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, 1523 views) Posted: 62d 0h, 44m ago by SinsI in News
What about family? Friends? All the favorite characters from other manga?

Just No. ...
New Poll - Archive Fansubs
(23 posts, 550 views) Posted: 70d 1h, 14m 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, 1832 views) Posted: 104d 22h, 5m 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, 1369 views) Posted: 133d 6h, 24m 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, 2101 views) Posted: 146d 19h, 38m ago by SinsI in News
Android smartphone. ...
New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 2043 views) Posted: 153d 19h, 52m 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

>They're alright as long as they serve a functional purpose

Example: Menchi from Excel Saga ...
New Poll - Spoilers
(16 posts, 965 views) Posted: 175d 4h, 49m 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, 7295 views) Posted: 181d 20h, 6m 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, 2158 views) Posted: 189d 5h, 9m 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, 1868 views) Posted: 210d 1h, 35m 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, 1868 views) Posted: 210d 3h, 47m 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, 1774 views) Posted: 216d 20h, 21m 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, 1303 views) Posted: 238d 4h, 1m 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, 4196 views) Posted: 245d 4h, 38m 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, 1855 views) Posted: 259d 4h, 2m 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, 2252 views) Posted: 270d 8h, 6m ago by SinsI in News
It's 6 continents. Asia and Europe are not continents. ...
New Poll - Continent
(36 posts, 2252 views) Posted: 270d 18h, 8m ago by SinsI in News
The answer is definite - it is Eurasia. Poll creator doesn't know what a "continent" is. ...

New Poll - Vehicle

If I fly on my own power (without riding anything) - is it "I prefer walking"? ...
New Poll - Preferred Setting
(21 posts, 1193 views) Posted: 287d 5h, 33m ago by SinsI in News
Futuristic Earth-like/Space or Modern America/Europe;
definitely not anything Historical (hate how they make fools out of famous historical persons - feels like a poor doujinshi). ...
New Poll - Last 5 Years (Manga)
(39 posts, 2314 views) Posted: 313d 23h, 13m ago by SinsI in News
Second that. I have a lot less time now, so I mostly look for entertainment during commuting - and while ebook readers allow to comfortably read light novels, their resolution is not good enough for manga... And tablets are too big to carry them around. ...
