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, 1588 views) Posted: 197d 13h, 49m 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 ...

Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 7297 views) Posted: 337d 1h, 3m 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, 4014 views) Posted: 350d 0h, 30m 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 ...

Looking for a Manga where the girl cheats/dumps/chooses another guy
(12 posts, 1922 views) Posted: 390d 22h, 2m 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, 11509 views) Posted: 413d 21h, 2m 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 ...

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, 4155 views) Posted: 428d 17h, 7m 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 ...

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, 8198 views) Posted: 588d 15h, 22m 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, 12108 views) Posted: 599d 20h, 5m 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, 2066 views) Posted: 663d 23h, 50m 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, 2466 views) Posted: 677d 22h, 51m 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?

"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. ...
New Poll - Known Languages

I hope so as I can then add Scots to my list.

Does anyone else find the the way the first option is posed kind of douchey?
I'm a Canadian so it's no skin off my back, but if I was American, I'd say the person who created the poll was a bit of a dick.
Am I the only one who ships HildaxAoi?
(1 posts, 780 views) Posted: 779d 22h, 13m ago by philip72 in Beelzebub
While I don't ship persay; as a heterosexual, red blooded male I prefer the thought of HildaxAoi far more than Hilda/Aoi x any of the guys.

Actually AoixRedTails, particularly Nene or Yuka, could be delicious, and HildaxYolda would be faptastic.

Comiket is rea ...
