New Poll - Collector
(39 posts, 2070 views) Posted: 352d 11h, 4m ago by Kina92 in News
In my case, I collect scanlations of manga that doesn't have an English translation. (I have a whole external hard drive full of 'em. >w<) It's actually surprising and saddening just how many awesome manga have been published in Englis ...
New Poll - Collector
(39 posts, 2070 views) Posted: 352d 11h, 7m ago by Kina92 in News
Why is there no "All of the above" option?! Sigh. If I had the means to do it, I would collect anything and everything. As it is... I collect manga and anime, some related live-action shows and movies, a few plushies... and doujinshi. >w< ...
New Poll - After Finishing a Series
(23 posts, 1444 views) Posted: 423d 5h, 49m ago by Kina92 in News
When I finish a series that I really liked I always look to see if there is a sequel and/or some kind of related series first, but I almost always get around to looking up other series by the author too. If the series involved an element that I've never really come ac ...
New Poll - Can't Sleep
(23 posts, 1439 views) Posted: 571d 23h, 55m ago by Kina92 in News
Fan fiction. 0_0 I start reading and I just can't stop. ...
New Poll - Fan Service
(37 posts, 3547 views) Posted: 680d 0h, 28m ago by Kina92 in News
Pretty much every minute of every day. Unless I'm going through a video game phase or something, but even then something manga and anime related slips in between the cracks. laugh ...
New Poll - Last Gen Consoles
(52 posts, 3658 views) Posted: 733d 4h, 39m ago by Kina92 in News
Making me choose was so not cool! XP However, I had to go with Xbox 360. I don't own a Wii, although I did enjoy playing it at friend's houses, and I only just got a PS3 a couple months ago! As much as I adore my PS3, I just couldn't choose it ...
New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 3838 views) Posted: 740d 9h, 23m ago by Kina92 in News
I have 547 in my complete list (I have a separate list for doujinshi, so my complete list only counts manga and oneshots). That number would probably double if I incorporated all the manga I'm in the process of reading. laugh
Although right now I'm in a big f ...
New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 13207 views) Posted: 768d 5h, 43m ago by Kina92 in News
It's just so sad when you start a series, fall in love with it, then find out that there hasn't been a new scanlation in forever! Or, likewise, that you find a new series that you want to read, but there's only a few chapters released and there hasn' ...
New Poll - Preferred Setting
(21 posts, 1862 views) Posted: 873d 8h, 50m ago by Kina92 in News
As a writer and artist in general I almost always go with a Fantasy Earth (or Earth-like) setting. It's fun to think up new and exciting places/things/creatures. However, I do also tend to leak in modern Japan, Europe, or America into the setting as kind of a ba ...
New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 6835 views) Posted: 942d 12h, 27m ago by Kina92 in News
I have to go with accuracy (option 1). One of the reasons I love reading manga is because I love seeing the linguistic and cultural differences between Japanese culture and my own. In case of fluency, much of that gets lost. That's why I tend to enjoy fan/g ...
New Poll - Manga and Real-Life Friends
(26 posts, 3167 views) Posted: 956d 10h, 1m ago by Kina92 in News
My old best friend and I used to read manga together as well as read separately and talk about afterwards--more times than not it was together, though. Nowadays, the few friends I have the read manga and I will generally read separately. >.< ...
New Poll - Starting Age
(47 posts, 4578 views) Posted: 984d 5h, 9m ago by Kina92 in News
I remember it like it was just yesterday. I was eleven, fresh into middle school and no real friends to speak of. Then a girl named Rebecca handed me the first volume of Fruits Basket. It was love at first sight. I've been an avid manga reader ever since. biggrin ...
New Poll - Mythical Creatures
(32 posts, 4593 views) Posted: 1020d 3h, 27m ago by Kina92 in News
Man, this poll was really difficult! I love mythical creatures, and I love reading series with mythical creatures even more! Still, as far as manga goes, I think I'd have to go with either kitsune or demon/oni/youkai (I voted for kitsune)... although a manga with elve ...
Romance with a nerdy or unpopular lead?
(6 posts, 3461 views) Posted: 1130d 11h, 17m ago by Kina92 in I'm Looking For...
Unfortunately, a nerdy or unpopular male lead narrows it down a lot, which is just a shame. Nerdy and/or unpopular males are quite adorable, I think. Also, I haven't read very many manga that fit this category. I did quite like Summer Wars (which is based o ...
