New Poll - Animal Ears
(28 posts, 722 views) Posted: 44d 22h, 36m ago by imercenary in News
Funny how that works out doesn't it? MU plays by the rules and gets screwed, while aggregators don't and profit. ...
New Poll - MU Years
(64 posts, 1411 views) Posted: 81d 0h, 6m ago by imercenary in News
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 ...
New Poll - MU Years
(64 posts, 1411 views) Posted: 82d 9h, 15m ago by imercenary in News
Thats your "joined" date, not when you 'first' started visiting.

Personally, I'd known about and been visiting MangaUpdates LONG before my join date but I rarely sign up for websites and/or throw away/make new accounts. My prof ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3339 views) Posted: 118d 22h, 57m ago by imercenary in News
WOW. Yaoi is seriously holding its second place position (no pun intended)

Shounen getting first, no surprise there bigrazz

That said, the poll is stupid as hell. Half the options aren't even demographics. ...
New Poll - Manga vs. Anime (Time)
(18 posts, 572 views) Posted: 131d 2h, 35m 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 ...

The World God Only Knows to End in Next Volume
(6 posts, 1639 views) Posted: 146d 2h, 18m ago by imercenary in Kami no Mizo Shiru Sekai
Ending? Well, I guess we can only hope for a sequel.

I can't say I'm surprised though. The ending was pretty much foreshadowed when the whole "Find the 6 goddesses" arc started. ...
Series you should have read sooner.
(28 posts, 1749 views) Posted: 148d 0h, 43m ago by imercenary in Manga General
Berserk

Yeah, its old. Yeah, its on hiatus (when isn't it on hiatus?).

But I found out about the series pretty late (mid-2000s or so) and it still holds up OK (I still don't get why people swear by the Band of the Hawk story arc), but reading those early volumes? ...
Your favorite "unique" storyline manga?
(18 posts, 1273 views) Posted: 178d 23h, 33m ago by imercenary in I'm Looking For...
Berserk.

The main character is a minor figure in the grand scheme of things? You'd be surprised how unique that is if you really think about it. ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2137 views) Posted: 185d 21h, 38m ago by imercenary in News
Actually, no. The poll doesn't imply that. Its a Freudian slip.

People read the poll question as "Go into his/her world in the series" and assume 'with roughly the same situation/strokes of luck/powers/abilities/level as him/her'. ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2137 views) Posted: 187d 10h, 57m ago by imercenary in News
Lolno.

Most manga worlds are either god forsaken hellholes or hyper exaggerated versions of our own world (I'm looking at you shoujo/ecchi/harem/comedy/slice of life genres).

A lot of people in the comments also seem to assume that going to said w ...
Favorite Zombie manga
(9 posts, 641 views) Posted: 207d 8h, 19m ago by imercenary in Manga General
Nothing.

I view zombies in mangas to be nothing more than stand ins for generic mooks or blatantly contrived excuses for the author to kill off side characters. (If you pay attention at how much in-story time passes, its fucking pathetic how quickly people are killed o ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?

Quote from cmertb
Well, before wondering if a manhwa can be made into an anime, I'd like to know if Japanese read manhwa in the first place? Does anyone know? I know k-drama is quite popular in Japan...


Of course they do. The problem is that legally/fin ...
Good ending standards
(12 posts, 492 views) Posted: 218d 1h, 9m ago by imercenary in Manga General
-Accepts the fact that life moves on
-Gives us resolution to the main plot points (subplots be damned!)
-Quietly moves on/ends

Seriously, nothing annoys me more than high school stories where the last chapter(s) suddenly time skip decades into the future just to sho ...
Prefer Ongoing or Completed Series?
(94 posts, 6349 views) Posted: 219d 10h, 51m ago by imercenary in Manga General
Dem necros.

Depends on the length.

If the series is long enough, (double digit volumes) I like completed series cause I can reasonably expect a good/fairly written ending.

If the series is shorter, I prefer to read ongoing series because theres always a chance it wou ...

Is Borderline Hentai really Borderline?
(27 posts, 4201 views) Posted: 254d 6h, 18m ago by imercenary in Manga General
I'm not even sure what "borderline hentai" is.

That said, its all moot. Different cultures define hentai/porn differently and that moves the 'borderline' accordingly. Whats "borderline hentai/porn" for Japanese audiences m ...
Ending Discussion *SPOILERS*
(11 posts, 3346 views) Posted: 254d 16h, 27m ago by imercenary in Nozaki Ana
And now the Ending is translated thanks to Japanzai!

That said, that was a very weak ending. Too much, too fast with a cliched ending to boot. (Really? A 'I'll wait 1 year'-ending?) I expected something a lot tighter for the ending. ...

So there is a legal end in sight, that legal end being your Miranda rights and public pressure.


Miranda rights only apply to criminal suspects, not civil. The type of DMCA violations mangaupdates is being accused of are anti-circumvention provis ...

They CAN affect secondary websites, but its a bullshit move with no end in sight. You literally cannot defend yourself against DMCA claims because they don't stand and fight. All they do is run away while you bleed out and the public buys into the belief that s ...

Nobody mentioned it because theres no legal precedent. The dmca has never gone to court over secondary or teritary webaites and nearly every legal expert admits it wouldnt hold up cause it would destroy the internet.

Its a bullshit law that cant be killed because ...

New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 1837 views) Posted: 319d 17h, 15m ago by imercenary in News
What a poorly phrased poll. The poll should actually asking two things:

1. Is the use of bullying in manga realistic?
Or.
2. Is the use of bullying in manga cliche? ...
