New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 6941 views) Posted: 0d 16h, 45m 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? ...

Oh look, slimy American political posturing is now attacking manga. You guys never rest do you? ...
New Poll - Paid Manga

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, 1523 views) Posted: 55d 15h, 28m 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, 1523 views) Posted: 56d 6h, 2m 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, 3776 views) Posted: 181d 16h, 2m 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!
I need to get a life. ...
New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 1990 views) Posted: 385d 13h, 34m 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

This poll reads like it was created by a 15 year old yaoi fangirl. ...

Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 8983 views) Posted: 525d 0h, 47m 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, 4978 views) Posted: 538d 0h, 14m 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 ...

New Poll - Gender Bender in Real Life 2

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, 2734 views) Posted: 578d 21h, 46m 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 ...
To people wanting know about the Status

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, 13842 views) Posted: 601d 20h, 46m 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 ...

That's because you're a heterosexual girl. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 13842 views) Posted: 602d 2h, 11m 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, 4980 views) Posted: 616d 16h, 52m 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 ...
