New Poll - Paid Manga
(40 posts, 520 views) Posted: 2d 14h, 41m ago by philip72 in News
It really is abysmal. Although I'm a paying subscriber, I virtually never visit Viz or Crunchyroll anymore, and stick with the pirated content almost exclusively. Better readers, no weaboo fright, and (often) better quality translations.

New Poll - Paid Manga
(40 posts, 520 views) Posted: 3d 5h, 15m ago by philip72 in News
You're not missing much.

I'm subscribed to Viz and Crunchyroll, and both have garbage, 3rd-rate, unusable readers and occasionally iffy translations. They're also deathly afraid of perceived weabooism, so they localize everything to hillbilly Am ...

Me too, I love manga that are visual works of art in their own right. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3407 views) Posted: 128d 15h, 15m ago by philip72 in News
A good bit more for yaoi than hentai, lolicon, yuri and shoujo-ai combined. Guess we know which sex consumes the most porn. ...

Sorry Panos, I have no clue.

This is all quite suspicious, they haven't even told us who the shady group who issued this extremely overreaching takedown notice is, and there's no legal reason why they can't.

I think MangaUpdates has been cowe ...

Also how does linking to scanlators sites violate the DMCA? Furthermore why not just take down the links in the notice? Though rights holders may wish it does, the DMCA doesn't work that way.

Something doesn't seem right here. ...

Can you post the DMCA?
This sounds excessive. Some of us here (not me) are lawyers and law students and would like a chance to peruse it. ...
New Poll - Completed Series

They do add up don't they? I selected 100-300 completed, then I checked out my complete list, 1298... Doh!
I need to get a life. ...
New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 1869 views) Posted: 332d 12h, 46m ago by philip72 in News
A poll on bullying in manga? Seriously?
Lolicon, sword fights, guro, rape, violent deaths, genocide, battles, guns, incest and all the other stuff manga is full of aside, we're going to fret about "bullying" and whether it should be in manga?

No, every si ...
New Poll - Favorite Character Type

Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 8407 views) Posted: 472d 0h, 0m ago by philip72 in News
Well yes and no.

On one hand this woman is an enormous hypocrite. She never asked the mangaka or the publishing company if she could take their work, convert their words to english, and post it on her site; but she expects Mangafox to afford her a courtesy she ...
New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 4670 views) Posted: 484d 23h, 27m ago by philip72 in News
If you don't yet understand what honorifics and their inferences mean, your "boatload" of manga wouldn't fill a kayak.
Two minutes on google will provide you all the knowledge necessary to be cognizant of their meaning.

I myself am sick o ...

As a leprechaun individual I find myself highly uncertain of how exactly I should vote, if any of the options even fit. ...
Looking for a Manga where the girl cheats/dumps/chooses another guy
(12 posts, 2516 views) Posted: 525d 20h, 59m ago by philip72 in I'm Looking For...
Nozoki Ana isn't really what he's looking for at all. Kotobiki is only in the earlier chapters, and the regret she feels later on is only mild and ineffectual.
As for Netorare, the girlfriends definitely treat the protags like chumps but they never regret their ac ...
To people wanting know about the Status

Support the mangaka by buying the Japanese volumes.

The mangaka gets next to nothing from English volumes; and $150 is a scam for 13 volumes that cost, in overpriced, super-expensive, paper-importing Japan, only $75.

You're paying double for a half-as ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 13144 views) Posted: 548d 19h, 59m ago by philip72 in News
Well it's blatantly obvious.

You say you have a strong dislike of lesbian themes, but you love watching/reading about handsome young men humping each other.
If you were bi or lesbian, you wouldn't be so averse to yuri.
And (with the exception of tra ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate

That's because you're a heterosexual girl. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 13144 views) Posted: 549d 1h, 23m ago by philip72 in News
Lol, hypocrite.

Yaoi is full of allegorical sexist tropes and misogynistic behavior acted out by genderless looking men. The whole seme and uke bit is an asexual reenactment of male sexual domination over women.

In addition, if you're female, the I guarantee ...
New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(51 posts, 4735 views) Posted: 563d 16h, 4m ago by philip72 in News
Agreed, absolutely inane, simply a question for the sake of a question.
It's the sort of thing one would come up with, if one were suddenly forced to come up with a poll question and only given 10 seconds to do so.

If the OP's a better song, people will pre ...
New Poll - Visiting Japan
(58 posts, 8904 views) Posted: 609d 15h, 46m ago by philip72 in News
But you can flip the real estate later for funds.

The "money is no object" bit is more important to me than the location.

There's a lot of high performance sports cars that were only released in Japan, I'd buy as many used as I could, and arra ...
President Election: Obama VS Romney
(91 posts, 8847 views) Posted: 723d 14h, 19m ago by philip72 in Chatter Box
Why do you Americans have to smother every forum in site with your creepy political sh*tstorms right now?

Because it was likely some callow Kos Kid that posted this crap I'll post some honest flamebait:
I'd vote Romney because I'm not a cre ...
Bishies: love 'em or hate 'em
(127 posts, 12760 views) Posted: 734d 19h, 2m ago by philip72 in Manga General
It seems to me there is a lot of confusion and crossed definitions on the meaning and usage of the word "Bishie".

Some people here are using the classic Japanese definition of asexual, effete, lipsticked and mascara, Takarazuka type characters.
While ...
