(41 posts, 4093 views) Posted: 472d 17h, 34m ago by imercenary in News
Quote from residentgrigo
Again, regarding the "classic" definition: Your library will have such a section for books, especially children´s books, as Moby-Dick, Treasure Island and so on. Pay them a visits to broaden your horizon and a true defini ...

New Poll - Loli/Shota
(28 posts, 4080 views) Posted: 577d 15h, 6m ago by imercenary in News

But back to the point of manga, you have to wonder why loli and shota images are unacceptable in other countries, but are okay in Japan. I don't think it has anything to do with Japan being more liberal or more accepting of personal expression, as a w ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota

Quote from That3rdGuy
The age of consent should be 15 or 16 ( and if an adult molests somebody younger than that, they should be executed on TV.

New Poll - Loli/Shota
(28 posts, 4080 views) Posted: 580d 14h, 47m ago by imercenary in News
I get what you're saying but practically every country in the world has already outlawed loli/shota (to some degree).

It doesn't do a goddamn thing about child abuse.

Action like this is nothing more than a way for politicians to score some easy political ...
Anything similar to Gate - Jietai Kare no Chi nite, Kaku Tatakeri?
(9 posts, 1122 views) Posted: 596d 1h, 2m ago by imercenary in I'm Looking For...
Practically the entire "reborn in a new world" genre.

Good political/Social Exchange stories are really, really, really, really hard to do without being outright "X country is the greatest, bow down before me/us you primitive beasts!" Its usually ...
New Poll - Drawing Your Own Manga

Also, why is there no option for "Yes, but I'm not sharing it for reasons other than being embarrassed"?


I second that.

I used to draw a lot (poorly) for fun when I was a kid and I used to draw (crappy) comics all the time (who here remembe ...
New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 2596 views) Posted: 650d 19h, 30m ago by imercenary in News
"So-so... I enjoy it every once in a while"

Admittedly, some of it is due to the fact that I've grown out of the hobby, but mostly its because I don't like most newer mangas. Too many of them are light/web novel adaptations most of which wer ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 4270 views) Posted: 660d 2h, 6m ago by imercenary in News
Last week's poll results : Not a surprise at all.

This week's poll : Weird.

"great plot but terrible artwork..."? Can anyone even cite such an example that isn't a webcomic? ...
New Poll - Harem Roles
(16 posts, 2936 views) Posted: 702d 1h, 33m ago by imercenary in News
Considering how popular the harem genre is, I find it comical to think that (as of this post) 16.2% of voters say they would be the "totally ordinary one".

You're all perverts, just admit it! ...
Why don't more people upload cover images onto MU?

90% of users are leeches

9% of users are either unable to do so for one reason or another

1% of users are contributors like you.

Theres also the fact that a lot of people are just plain tired of seeing DMCAs nuke their work. Love of a hobby is no excuse for watc ...
"Berserk" Manga Schedules Latest Hiatus!
(22 posts, 5925 views) Posted: 718d 19h, 9m ago by imercenary in Berserk
Considering the fact that its not uncommon for manga artists to be overworked, I wouldn't be so quick to make that claim. ...
New Poll - Web Novels

confusedconfusedconfused

Have you actually the novels you're recommending or are you just recommending them because someone else recommended them? Cause nearly everything you recommended is on par with a 'shounen and shoujo manga series that everybody ...
New Poll - Web Novels

Quote from silencecomes
I'm happy to see a like minded individual. I've read half of the ones you've recommend already, and they are enjoyable.
Are they good? Hell if I know, I'm a horrible critic. It's better than half of the never e ...
New Poll - Web Novels
(35 posts, 4012 views) Posted: 785d 2h, 12m ago by imercenary in News
Needs an option between 'Maybe a couple' and 'Used to, not anymore'

That said, the vast majority of web novels are shit. You can't go wrong with free but when this community is (mostly) a community of manga pirates, why both ...

New Poll - Manga Availability

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 ...
New Poll - Manga Availability

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, 3963 views) Posted: 863d 11h, 35m 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, 3866 views) Posted: 868d 21h, 42m 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, 4300 views) Posted: 877d 2h, 25m 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
(15 posts, 2259 views) Posted: 880d 11h, 23m 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, 1241 views) Posted: 884d 2h, 47m 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 ...
