|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 9979 views) Posted: 104d 20h, 2m 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 ...
|New Poll - Sexism

"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, 4646 views) Posted: 701d 21h, 41m 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 ...
|New Poll - Fonts (v2)

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, 540 views) Posted: 1622d 0h, 29m 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, 14407 views) Posted: 1672d 13h, 2m 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 ...
|Realistic Harem Manga

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?
(2 posts, 1935 views) Posted: 1735d 15h, 4m ago by Erazen in Bleach
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 ...
