New Poll - Best Josei
(20 posts, 480 views) Posted: 5d 18h, 9m ago by MangaGhost in News
Gokusen? Seriously? That's been over and done with for years. Fun, yes, but best? Tough call with the rest 3-4 serious good ones there. ...
New Poll - Maid Cafes
(17 posts, 568 views) Posted: 40d 22h, 27m ago by MangaGhost in News
I chose never. I don't have a problem with restaurants or cafe's with themes like say superheros, Hard Rock cafe or characters from say the 1950s like in the Pulp Fiction movie. I wouldn't go often more like once for the novelty. However, hav ...
Can anyone please take this 2 minute survey on national security? I .

You do realize that in the first category Age Group you are missing 35-44? ...
Mangatraders now 100% down, any new info?

Quote from maturd
Sadly FMD seems to be down. It doesn't download. It looks like it's not being updated.

I got FMD off Softpedia. It does not come with all the lists of sites, for that I had to go to SourceForge. FMD works to a limited extent. I can grab stuf ...
New Poll - OS
(14 posts, 979 views) Posted: 354d 20h, 59m ago by MangaGhost in News
I guess its Multi-boot for me. I'm running OSX Mavericks on my laptop with Win7 on virtual machine via Parallels. Meanwhile, I also have a hand built PC box that boots either into Win7 or WinXP (for old games that wont run on Win7). Windows 7 for me was an im ...
New Poll - Favorite Narrative
(13 posts, 990 views) Posted: 397d 19h, 26m ago by MangaGhost in News
In answer to the followup question about how much manga I buy every year I would say a moderate amount especially in comparison to some people I know. I try to buy stuff that I've read that I really like if its licensed. On average I would say that I'm p ...
New Poll - After a While...
(21 posts, 1352 views) Posted: 439d 17h, 37m ago by MangaGhost in News
Stuff needs to end especially if its been going on for say 26years (Berserk)!!

A good ending is like a satisfying meal at a nice restaurant which can be ruined it it takes too long to get or you fill up on too many appetizers. For me, manga is often either too short or to ...
Definitely worth reading
(1 posts, 275 views) Posted: 503d 22h, 11m ago by MangaGhost in Birdy the Mighty (II)
Has Ronin Ixioran taken a break from scanlating Birdy or has he quit entirely? I hope someone can pick it up it is definitely worth reading. ...
Chapter 105
(6 posts, 1145 views) Posted: 965d 18h, 54m ago by MangaGhost in The Breaker: New Waves
Sure, but we didn't need Baldy's flashback in the middle of the fight. It was like someone hit the pause button while you were watching your favorite action flick and wanted to tell you what a crappy day they had. It just totally killed the mood and pacing of ...
New Poll - Optimal Story Length
(33 posts, 3719 views) Posted: 985d 19h, 58m ago by MangaGhost in News
I wish the choices were more like short, medium or long number of volumes. The choices "just a few volumes" makes me think like 1-5 and "lots of volumes" sounds like 20+. I don't like most short stories, so the poll automatically mak ...
New Poll - Summer
(18 posts, 2358 views) Posted: 1062d 13h, 58m ago by MangaGhost in News
Quote from SinsI
Missing options:
a) Lack of school subplots!
b) None

I vote a)

I would vote b) NONE as all those options are tired old cliches. Occasionally they take the cliche and change something about it to make it interesting, but I haven't seen it often. ...
New Poll - Asian Characters
(46 posts, 6315 views) Posted: 1097d 11h, 51m ago by MangaGhost in News
The way this poll is worded sounds like a round about way of bringing up the whole "anime/manga characters look Caucasian" thing that sends some people into spats. Why would I assume they are not Asian? If the story takes place in a Japanese Hig ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 11375 views) Posted: 1125d 11h, 42m ago by MangaGhost in News
A conditional no. See, If I get my guitar and cover a song from let's say Alt Japanese band The Pillows and upload it to YouTube are the police gonna come knocking? Are The Pillows going to send me a cease and desist (well maybe if I suck)? I don' ...
New Poll - Characters and Self Similarities
(11 posts, 1297 views) Posted: 1140d 2h, 19m ago by MangaGhost in News
I put no preference, because I like various types of characters and genres. I prefer seinen overall, but I like some Yuri stuff and there are also some good shounen action manga I read. Some of these characters share some similar traits with me and some have ...
New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 3969 views) Posted: 1146d 10h, 15m ago by MangaGhost in News
1. I haven't found a good story that I can't relate to. There is some shoujo stuff that I think is a little unbelievable so maybe I can't relate to that, but I drop it before putting any significant investment into it.
2. A good story doesn't always have ...
New Poll - Looking Your Age
(32 posts, 3748 views) Posted: 1182d 2h, 27m ago by MangaGhost in News
I wish it was 2 polls, how one looks and how one acts. I don't have a problem with characters not acting their age too much. However, it annoys me to no end when all characters are not drawn age appropriately. Like when you have everyone look like they ...
New Poll - Author vs. Artist
(36 posts, 3973 views) Posted: 1272d 11h, 5m ago by MangaGhost in News
Writing is also a form of art. Manga is a medium that includes both the visual and written arts. I think both are important to creating a good work. However, both are not always necessary to creating successful manga, which is a different thing from a good manga, ...
New Poll - Reading Harem
(11 posts, 840 views) Posted: 1363d 17h, 41m ago by MangaGhost in News
I think hate and tired should have been 2 different choices. Hate means you dislike it, tired can mean you are bored with them or feel inundated with them. I don't hate harems, but I am tired of them because so few offer anything really different that grabs my ...
IM Dal-Young strikes again... UGH!!!
(36 posts, 15733 views) Posted: 1450d 20h, 12m ago by MangaGhost in The Legend of Maian
It was a pretty good series until the last 2 volumes imho. The big fight at the end of the last volume wasn't that good and it was just a clearing away of a bunch of characters. It was a bit contrived and convenient how the big bad got rid of a bunch of people to ...

Quote from catandmouse
Seriously CLAMP?
I mean, The Blood series is not really their original series, and then to add to it, they have a crossover?
I know CLAMP likes their crossovers, but they seriously need to stop.

Its just a way for them to promote their stuff u ...
New Poll - Online Manga Readers
(34 posts, 2758 views) Posted: 1531d 15h, 55m ago by MangaGhost in News
I think they have helped popularize manga and made it easy to read manga. I think they show that there are a lot of people who like manga outside of Japan. I also think they demonstrate that there might be a viable digital distribution model for publishers if they can w ...
How to be the perfect boyfriend?
(87 posts, 7974 views) Posted: 1594d 16h, 58m ago by MangaGhost in Chatter Box
Well they always seem to have a soft spot for "bad boys".

I was reading an article in the paper about Ted Bundy being on trial in Florida. In the article it said the courtroom was filled with women waiting to give him flowers, love letters and wedding fucking ...
New Poll - Live-Action Hollywood Adaptation
(12 posts, 578 views) Posted: 1601d 14h, 50m ago by MangaGhost in News
I don't mind localization so much, if its done well. Unfortunately, I don't think its done well too often. In anime I'd say about 2/3 of the dubs aren't good and I'm saying this as someone who would prefer a dub. In movie remakes of fore ...
Update to Series Comments
(50 posts, 1851 views) Posted: 1611d 18h, 6m ago by MangaGhost in News
Text needs to be darker or font thicker in the body of the reviews, kinda like here in the comment section. It just comes across too faint and someone with weak vision, like myself has hard time reading it. Aside from that, I like that the rating was moved to the right h ...
New Poll - Anime Fillers
(14 posts, 753 views) Posted: 1615d 22h, 44m ago by MangaGhost in News
I don't mind filler arcs if it expands on some of the characters or main plot some, its sometimes nice to see a non-main character get some attention too. But so many fillers just bite. Many are just lousy gag fillers that don't add anything. What's ...
