New Poll - Background Art

Me too, I love manga that are visual works of art in their own right. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3082 views) Posted: 86d 23h, 20m 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, 1781 views) Posted: 290d 20h, 52m 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, 8065 views) Posted: 430d 8h, 5m 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

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, 2291 views) Posted: 484d 5h, 4m 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 ...

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, 12694 views) Posted: 507d 4h, 4m 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, 12694 views) Posted: 507d 9h, 29m 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, 4532 views) Posted: 522d 0h, 10m 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, 8632 views) Posted: 567d 23h, 51m 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, 8616 views) Posted: 681d 22h, 24m 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, 12525 views) Posted: 693d 3h, 7m 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 ...
a Character that Defies Gender Roles
(22 posts, 2186 views) Posted: 757d 6h, 52m ago by philip72 in I'm Looking For...
Well if you want to get technical any LGBT person by definition is a pervert due to the nature of their sexuality vis-à-vis the biological function of sex.
It could also apply to certain heterosexual practices, such as cunnilingus, fellatio and heterosexual sodomy ...
New Poll - Mainstream
(33 posts, 2716 views) Posted: 771d 5h, 53m ago by philip72 in News
I don't usually read a manga thinking who else does.


Only the most pretentious kiddies, chock full of callow ideas about what constitutes "good" or "enjoyable", would pooh-pooh a story simply because it's popular.
The ...
What song are you listening to RIGHT NOW?
(4728 posts, 259309 views) Posted: 782d 8h, 25m ago by philip72 in Music
"Three little maids from school are we" by Gilbert and Sullivan.
The shrill trilling "ha-ha-ha-hi-hi-hi" of Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo and Pitti-Sing arouses me. ...
