New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 1847 views) Posted: 140d 13h, 22m ago by wolfinthesheep in News
Feels like this topic is going to be purely about the mainstream Marvel/DC comics franchises.

Kind of like asking non-Manga readers about Manga and all they know is the long-running Shonens that everyone hates. ...
Manga with a girl who prefers under the bed instead of on it.

Appleseed maybe? Not under the bed, but she sleeps on the floor (at least at the start) because she's using to sleeping wherever she can in warzones. Or, in the movie she did, don't remember if that was in the manga as well.

Either way, it's lik ...

As I said earlier, the Women in Refrigerators phenomenon is a symptom of most primary Superhero protagonists being male leaving females as the side characters, most Superhero comics running for several decades under dozens of writers, and the constant ...

Lol, american comics are the same, there are many good ones with progressive female characters but an equal if not more number of awful representations.

Ever heard of "women in refrigerators"?

I'll take assertive girls in shoujo even if they aren't experienced at all. Sadly, there is a shortage of them.
I mean, sure a girl doesn't have to behave like she's been with a thousand lovers if she a high school stu ...

I think I said it somewhere above, but these kinds of threads pop up constantly, and it's all about how some tired old cliches and writing tropes are dumb. On the Shonen board there's a "Worst Shonen Cliche" and "Worst Shojo Cliche ...

I'm very much aware of that actually. However that doesn't make it not sexist. Women can be sexist to women and men to men. It doesn't require the opposite gender employing it to be sexist. I see that a lot. "But a w ...

IDK maybe not everyone will see them as sexist but I personally do get offended and put off when I see stuff like that. I am sensitive though I will not deny that.

My biggest problem with sexism and objectification in manga is how it's marketed. To young boys, especially (ick). Like, I don't care if you have a fetish for women being objectified. I have a fetish for men being objectified, s ...

Seems silly to be talking about sexism in manga and anime when there is an industry built around selling to girls and women.

And as popular as the loser-male lead surrounded by sexualized females theme is in shounen, the exact opposite is true for shoujo (maybe e ...

My budget is anything between Rs.60,000- Rs.70,000 (1$=Rs.60). Laptop's minimum price here in India is around Rs.30,000. Maybe price is different in different countries even if we ignore the currency conversion factor.

As dumb as a lot of Naruto is, I'm willing to give the mangaka some benefit of the doubt. Mainly because Sasuke has been consistently been portrayed as a massive douche and a murderous sociopath. Him being written into a corner was purely intentional, ...

Could always look through here bigrazz http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItemCrafting

Crafting-based game?
(7 posts, 1454 views) Posted: 719d 11h, 59m ago by wolfinthesheep in Games
A lot of the Minecraft-esque games (including Minecraft) are heavy on the crafting. Terraria is a solid choice.

Summon Night: Swordcraft Story series for something much more casual and plot driven.

Don't think I've seen a single crafting system in a ...

Not true.

Most of poor people in the third world country are reluctant vegans. Since meats are expensive, and they prefer to sell the meats they somehow acquire to the market for the cash, while eating rice and vegetables in their daily life.

Too hard to sift through the garbage to find decent ones.

You've basically got the people who just take their favourite song and slap it on their favourite series and think that's cool.

And then you've got the ones that try and make it a quality crea ...
