New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 1081 views) Posted: 15d 18h, 28m ago by philip72 in News
Quote from residentgrigo
good female targeted manga are all sorts of things but "rare as an unicorn" they are not. They just don´t sell that well when compared (and moe is a seinen phenomenon)

I can't think of more than a handful real ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 1081 views) Posted: 16d 0h, 12m ago by philip72 in News
You're right to some extent.
I imagine the female readership for Jump is an order of magnitude larger than male readership of Margaret. In addition, Jump caters to it's female readership somewhat with works like Prince of Tennis (Is there a single s ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 1081 views) Posted: 16d 23h, 24m ago by philip72 in News
I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention Yoshikawa Miki who's enjoying a surge of popularity right now with her "Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches"; and the utterly amazing and fantastic Kubo Mitsurou (Tokkyuu!!, Moteki, Again!), who ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 1081 views) Posted: 16d 23h, 35m ago by philip72 in News
There's some excellent josei and shoujo out there, but it's rarer than unicorns. The vast majority of it is either excessively maudlin or sociopathic, the kind of tripe that makes mindless and generic T&A harems look like works of high art.

It' ...
New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 1464 views) Posted: 45d 7h, 4m ago by philip72 in News
Heavens yes, lots of people, that's terribly, terribly frightening.
Far worse than an "unrealistic" Nuclear holocaust or an "unrealistic" asteroid catastrophe .

"Overpopulation and/or loss of resources - 16.2%"
You're ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 2117 views) Posted: 52d 4h, 37m ago by philip72 in News
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 comments here sa ...

Pretty much everyone, you're actually kinda unique. ...
New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 2173 views) Posted: 190d 16h, 15m ago by philip72 in News
Yours is the only honest choice.

I think this poll is just a clever plan to out all the Chuuni's here on Baka-Updates.
Almost 25% fancy themselves strategists or masterminds, and this comments thread is full of edgemasters telling us that they'd be Hell Kin ...
New Poll - Manga App

"50% don't have an app to read manga?""Why are you even on this site"

Wow top pleb.
No tablet has the resolution a good, large monitor (or high-def laptop screen) can provide, and double-page threads look like ass on them. Further ...
Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request

Very good point.
If anyone is actually monitoring the thread, take note. ...
Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
(52 posts, 5724 views) Posted: 277d 19h, 39m ago by philip72 in News
And just like with Wikipedia, using the covers constitutes fair use.
Kodansha had no business issuing a DMCA. It should be ignored and your host threatened with litigation if it pulls that stunt again.

Seriously lambchopsil, you've got to stop caving to these legally ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 11374 views) Posted: 283d 15h, 52m ago by philip72 in News
The whole concept of railing against thoughtcrime in fiction is American. And I don't believe I mentioned your godking, so why do you bring him up? ...

New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 2948 views) Posted: 330d 18h, 10m ago by philip72 in News
Doesn't mean they have any say in decisions. Bad, lazy management, terrible style guide and inferior infrastructure are the problem, not where some of the employees learned their trade. ...

New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 2948 views) Posted: 338d 14h, 34m 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
(50 posts, 2948 views) Posted: 339d 5h, 9m 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 ...
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, 5340 views) Posted: 464d 15h, 9m 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, 2527 views) Posted: 668d 12h, 40m 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 ...
