New Poll - Bad Characteristics
(25 posts, 893 views) Posted: 21d 21h, 5m ago by philip72 in News
Quote from meredithbecca
I feel like I've read good or entertaining stories with all of these kinds of protagonists. None of these would be actual deal breakers for me, because I think that all of them could be well written (and the flawless character can mak ...
New Poll - Relationship Status

New Poll - Categories

Searching the female-centric tags of Smut, Shoujo and Josei + Rape yields another 650+ results, although there's probably some duplication within the tags.
I blame the patriarchy.

New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 3291 views) Posted: 202d 5h, 10m ago by philip72 in News
I think the "Just make another" and "Abandon her" options were added just to suss out how many edgelords visit MU.
As the time of this post we're sitting at 11.9% edgy. ...

New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 3127 views) Posted: 306d 6h, 22m ago by philip72 in News
Scanlators who love the series they work with don't do that. They're trying to make the series as popular as possible, and dropping it countermands that goal.
Scanlators who do it for solely for their epeen, on the other hand, will however drop it for tho ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 4023 views) Posted: 377d 16h, 53m ago by philip72 in News
I'm here almost every day and I never saw the list. That's probably because I, like 99.9% of the people who've joined MU, never use the forum anymore. It does explain the teeny fujo odor all over the final selection though.

Maybe if you want to g ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 4023 views) Posted: 384d 4h, 17m ago by philip72 in News
Yotsubato and GTO didn't make it because the poll is bait, as evidenced by the presence of Black Butler, Horimiya and Pandora Hearts (which I enjoy, but seriously, not even top 100).
If it was a serious poll the exclusion of Dr. Slump/Dragonball, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bas ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics

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, 3029 views) Posted: 439d 4h, 21m 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

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, 3029 views) Posted: 440d 3h, 44m 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, 3003 views) Posted: 468d 11h, 13m 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%"

New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 4505 views) Posted: 475d 8h, 46m 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, 3573 views) Posted: 613d 20h, 25m 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
(38 posts, 3570 views) Posted: 692d 14h, 37m ago by philip72 in News
"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, 8451 views) Posted: 700d 23h, 48m 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, 16677 views) Posted: 706d 20h, 1m 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, 4682 views) Posted: 753d 22h, 20m 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, 4682 views) Posted: 761d 18h, 44m 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.
