(36 posts, 4120 views) Posted: 16d 21h, 6m ago by Erazen in Suggestions & Bugs
Looking on the member lists starting September 19, I noticed that the spam account registrations had the following patterns (where mangaupdates time is GMT -07:00, or MUT):
-- On each weekday, the majority of account registration begin 5-7am MUT and stops aro ...

Maybe give this forum "nofollow" rules if you haven't already. The spam looks like it's written for SEO, so if you have "nofollow" rules to stop search engines linking to our forums, it'll give the spammers one less big ince ...

This poll has just expanded my vocabulary.
Dandere, because it's endearing to watch and root for their struggles to express their feelings to their beloved.
Also because I'm dandere myself. ...
|OLD MAN YOUNG GIRL ROMANCE!?
(19 posts, 10409 views) Posted: 889d 6h, 58m ago by Erazen in I'm Looking For...
Some heart-warming "Older Male Younger Female" stories (sorry, no wrinkles):
Miman Renai (one of my all-time favourites)
Kore wa Koi no Hanashi (deep emotions, but you will need to find RAWs for the ending)
Otaku no Musume-san ("non-rom ...
|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 25979 views) Posted: 1092d 13h, 17m ago by Erazen in News
I say no, because banning loli and shota is a form of censorship.
Censorship prevents understanding.
One notion that hasn't been brought up is that some people use fiction to explore things without affecting RL.
In this case, some people may view loli an ...

"None of the above". Many of these tropes are used to develop the story itself. If I let myself be bothered by them, I'll miss out on seeing how exactly the mangaka deals with the issue or situation.
So to hell with the Gender Wars and SJW. Let me e ...
|Disabled Children - Abortion?
(63 posts, 6626 views) Posted: 1689d 14h, 55m ago by Erazen in Chatter Box
Wow, suddenly I feel powerless as a child of parents. The value of me being alive is now left to the whim of others.
So where does the value of me begin? Do I begin at the age of 4, where my earliest certain memory is a hospital ward after regaining consciousnes ...

If some n00b actually took this as a sign that they should use Comic Sans MS, then there will be blood.
Wild Words FTW. ...

Some good manga can change your outlook on life. Two particular mangaka come to mind:
Urasawa Naoki (such as Monster, 20th Century Boys, Pluto and Happy!)
Arakawa Hiromu (such as Full Metal Alchemist and Silver Spoon) ...

I use Avast! Home Edition, with Malwarebytes as a manual back-up scanner and Combofix for cleaning up.
For me, Avast is the front line that takes care of the viruses before they start doing damage, but I discovered that Avast couldn't be perfect when the ...
|New Poll - AMVs
(22 posts, 1089 views) Posted: 2609d 17h, 44m ago by Erazen in News
I chose half-empty because I know I've got the cup half-full - just that empty space needs to be filled, and it hasn't been filled yet. In other words, room for improvement.
And yes, it's a shame that a lot of AMVs are just random montages of clips ...
|How would You Die??
(221 posts, 17401 views) Posted: 2660d 6h, 17m ago by Erazen in Chatter Box
I would die after making sure that ALL of my secrets, knowledge and wisdom have been catalogued and preserved properly and are known to the right people. Otherwise my time would be wasted, information would be lost, the one I love wouldn't know my ...

How about GE (Good Ending)?
It accurately portrays the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of each of the characters, and also has a very realistic relationship development. However, it may not be like the harem you'd be used to, since the developments go ...
|What happened to Ju-Ni?

I'm a new member on the site, so first things first: Hello to ya!
I've been following the HQ scanlation group Ju-Ni for Bleach manga. However, last month they began having problems with the site, sometimes with their site going into downtime.
Today their ...
