Manga Poll
How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring
Perfectly fine about it
Don't care

New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 1182 views) Posted: 17d 11h, 49m 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, 1811 views) Posted: 24d 9h, 22m 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 ...
New Poll - Membership

"Who uses that chapter thingy anyways"
Pretty much everyone, you're actually kinda unique. ...
New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 2033 views) Posted: 162d 21h, 1m 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, 2011 views) Posted: 241d 15h, 13m 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, 5505 views) Posted: 250d 0h, 24m 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, 10946 views) Posted: 255d 20h, 37m 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 - Sexism

Oh look, slimy American political posturing is now attacking manga. You guys never rest do you? ...
New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 2801 views) Posted: 302d 22h, 55m 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, 2801 views) Posted: 310d 19h, 19m 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, 2801 views) Posted: 311d 9h, 54m 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
(13 posts, 700 views) Posted: 353d 3h, 14m ago by philip72 in News
Me too, I love manga that are visual works of art in their own right. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 5173 views) Posted: 436d 19h, 54m 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. ...
Group Links Removed

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
(46 posts, 3305 views) Posted: 595d 0h, 32m ago by philip72 in News
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, 2484 views) Posted: 640d 17h, 25m 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
(36 posts, 2593 views) Posted: 668d 10h, 32m ago by philip72 in News
This poll reads like it was created by a 15 year old yaoi fangirl. ...
Youve read Berserk...right?

Sure is 15 years old in this thread. ...
Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 10979 views) Posted: 780d 4h, 39m 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, 5972 views) Posted: 793d 4h, 6m 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 ...
