Manga Poll
How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring
Perfectly fine about it
Don't care

Why are their barely any webmanga scanned(translated), while the webmanwha is done in masses?
(3 posts, 111 views) Posted: 1d 1h, 32m ago by imercenary in Manga General
Because the vast majority of them are terrible and few people want to dig through them to find the good stuff, let alone actually translate them.

New Poll - Character Clones
(19 posts, 197 views) Posted: 1d 5h, 39m ago by imercenary in News
I'm fine with it but I still find it confusing.

The fact that so many mangakas resort to the same/similar weapons doesn't help. (PLEASE stop using Katanas as the ultimate, be-all-end-all uber weapon) ...

And I think you're confused - I was still referring to manga demographics in the quoted text. I don't see why you brought up the whole 20,000 votes thing, unless you think I was inferring that this poll would be the sample to use when explaining how ...

Clarification: I cannot translate non-committal grunts. However, like you, I am capable of making assumptions. If I was false in doing so, feel free to tell me.


I don't know if you were false because I don't know what you're talking about.

So are you or are you not a mind reader?

However, we both know that we mostly use geography to group the two different societies together, and geography only begins to explain their intricacies.

There is a point to the comparison because this is a discussion about a poll on a site with a largely western userbase, as previous poll results have reflected. Understand that, while manga is originally designed for a Japanese audience, the polls on this site ar ...

What a strange poll this time.

I voted for mass infertility because most of the others are either similar (Zombie, Vampires, Dragons and 'Rapture or hell on earth' are all separate options? Seriously? Were you intentionally trying to overload the poll?) o ...

Why in the world would I be referring to Japanese society? We've had previous polls that confirm the majority of the users on this site are from North America and Europe.


Because theres no point in comparing Western gender expectations in some ...

I believe it's more about gender expectations. Society tends to be much more lenient towards girls who express interest in masculine things, as opposed to vice versa.


Sure but which society are your talking about? In "Western" societies, ...

Quote from philip72
It's funny, obviously the female-oriented demographics will lose, by a high margin too I imagine. (Women are largely ambivalent to seinen and shounen, but guys view most shoujo and josei with disgust and revulsion.) However, most of the ...
New Poll - Release Gap

Depends on how big the gap is.

If its just a few chapters, meh.

If its a couple dozen/over a hundred, I'll come back in a few weeks/months. ...
New Poll - Mangaka Assistant

Getting paid.

Like most minimal level jobs these days, being an ASSISTANT to a mangaka generally pays nothing, at best. Seeing the first chapter, working with the mangaka, getting experience, all that stuff is great; but if you're not paying your bills, it doesn' ...

Wow, so many people want to live in a seinen world? I wonder why. And I sincerely hope people don't say something immature like, "a seinen world is just like the real world" cause most of them seriously aren't. ...

I voted no/no. If we illegalize it, then there is plenty more types of manga that should be illegal.

New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 2086 views) Posted: 245d 19h, 3m ago by imercenary in News
What a wonky poll.

Due to its poor phrasing and even worse choices, I choose Indifferent.

If it makes sense in context of the story, the more unrealistic, the better. If it doesn't make sense in context, such garbage. ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 10941 views) Posted: 284d 21h, 15m ago by imercenary in News
It becomes sexual assault when the character does it tens/hundreds of times of the course of a series.

Most manga even lampshade the fact that its become so common that its become a cliche in and of itself. (ie. The "public morals" officer gets sex ...

It is, but its also interesting/amusing to see what people vote.

Statistically speaking, unless you have a SUPER hardcore fanbase/community, the poll should look like an upward slope, with the two ends being the lowest (due to the lack of publicity/starting up/etc and ...

WOW. Yaoi is seriously holding its second place position (no pun intended)

That said, the poll is stupid as hell. Half the options aren't even demographics. ...
New Poll - Manga vs. Anime (Time)
(18 posts, 974 views) Posted: 448d 21h, 28m ago by imercenary in News
Manga, easily.

Mangas are light reads so I can get through a "chapter" within 5 minutes, easily.

But animes are pretty demanding, ~20 minute long and only one intermission point. Episodes are almost always designed to be watched a full episode at a tim ...
