If there was a maid cafe near you, would you visit it?
Sure, I'd visit a lot! No shame
As long as no one else found out...
I'd give it a try and that's it
Never

New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 1214 views) Posted: 21d 0h, 9m ago by imercenary in News
Quote from mikako17
Err...how would you decide a country's native language? English is definitely not native to the US but it is the one to use as Portugese is not native to Brazil but it is again the one to use... Also the poll is asking about the availability of mang ...
New Poll - Manga Availability

Quote from NightSwan
Yeah, no shit, man.

Hebrew is the official language in Israel, and as such this is what I assume the question refers to. I don't think it takes into account immigrants like me.
But I did refer to both instances.

Since you made a point of saying t ...

Quote from NightSwan
You may think so, but as far as I know, this is hardly the case in Israel.
Since Hebrew is not a widely spoken language, and manga not being massively popular in Israel, it would be very expensive and more importantly, unprofitable, to translate ...
New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 1214 views) Posted: 24d 14h, 51m ago by imercenary in News
What an idiotic poll.

If a manga is published in X country, it will obviously be in X country's native language.

You might as well ask "How available is Japanese published manga in the Japanese language and/or country of Japan? ...
New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 976 views) Posted: 30d 0h, 58m ago by imercenary in News
> I'm male and I tend to make female characters

But it depends on the type/quality of the game.

Some games simply give female characters better looking armor so I pick female (Monster Hunter). Other times, (such as MMOs) certain races are gende ...
New Poll - Pirate Remorse
(34 posts, 1700 views) Posted: 38d 5h, 42m ago by imercenary in News
What a strange poll.

If I felt bad or remorse for consuming pirated content, I would never have gotten into anime/manga/light novels in the first place, let alone stuck with it for so long. ...
White skin
(10 posts, 493 views) Posted: 41d 14h, 39m ago by imercenary in Manga General
Long story short: Its the "yamato nadeshiko" image.

And then of course; when you start talking about text, its hard to describe something as "a little bit tan" or "a little bit brown" or "a little bit white" so most writers sim ...
why is asking for server adminship a bad thing?
(3 posts, 261 views) Posted: 45d 6h, 4m ago by imercenary in Games
Because 99.99999999999999999% of people who ask for server admin are either:

A) Idiots
B) Jerks
C) Trolls
D) All of the above ...
China Bans Attack On Titan, Death Note And Dozens Of Other Manga And Anime

Why are people so surprised?

Anyone who read the international section of the news-paper/magazine/website for the last decade would have shrugged at this. ...
New Poll - Appearances
(16 posts, 867 views) Posted: 52d 2h, 48m ago by imercenary in News
"Only change appearances to signify the passage of a lot of time "

This.

Having characters change their clothes/appearance (too) often is idiotic. Theres no reason to do so other than 'to change things up'. Every time theres a change, e ...
Why are their barely any webmanga scanned(translated), while the webmanwha is done in masses?
(3 posts, 262 views) Posted: 59d 0h, 31m 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
(24 posts, 999 views) Posted: 59d 4h, 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) ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2

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.

There you go, using "uhh" again as if people can read your mind.

we both know


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.


Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh......

You believe citing a Western poll is meaningless? Even though the poll I' ...

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 ...
New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 1655 views) Posted: 72d 18h, 56m ago by imercenary in News
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, ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 2389 views) Posted: 79d 18h, 4m ago by imercenary in News
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
(14 posts, 989 views) Posted: 93d 20h, 7m ago by imercenary in News
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
(17 posts, 1180 views) Posted: 100d 23h, 9m ago by imercenary in News
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' ...
New Poll - Living a Demographic
(25 posts, 1520 views) Posted: 192d 13h, 37m ago by imercenary in News
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. ...

Do you think loli / shota should be -illegal- or banned?


Sounds like you don't read at all. ...
