New Poll - Pirate Remorse
(32 posts, 693 views) Posted: 3d 21h, 0m 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
(5 posts, 155 views) Posted: 7d 5h, 58m 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, 206 views) Posted: 10d 21h, 23m 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, 455 views) Posted: 17d 18h, 7m 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, 196 views) Posted: 24d 15h, 50m 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, 722 views) Posted: 24d 19h, 57m 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.

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

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.

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, 1415 views) Posted: 38d 10h, 15m 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, 2073 views) Posted: 45d 9h, 22m 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, 833 views) Posted: 59d 11h, 26m 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, 1044 views) Posted: 66d 14h, 28m 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, 1435 views) Posted: 158d 4h, 56m 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. ...

Reading comprehension.

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


This this this.

I don't think people realize how LETHAL any kind of censorship would be to ALL kinds of writing/drawings/manga/books. ...
New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 2179 views) Posted: 269d 9h, 21m 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, 11264 views) Posted: 308d 11h, 33m 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 ...
