New Poll - Manga App
(38 posts, 1039 views) Posted: 41d 12h, 4m 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.

Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
(51 posts, 3653 views) Posted: 49d 21h, 15m 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

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? ...

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. ...

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.

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 - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 4110 views) Posted: 236d 16h, 45m 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. ...

They do add up don't they? I selected 100-300 completed, then I checked out my complete list, 1298... Doh!

New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 2153 views) Posted: 440d 14h, 17m 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

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, 5260 views) Posted: 593d 0h, 57m 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

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, 14443 views) Posted: 656d 21h, 29m 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 ...
