New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 1919 views) Posted: 50d 4h, 21m ago by MangaGhost in News
1. Why would I trust a shady mystic? They might be in league with the demons. It might be part of their plan.

2. Putting out a reward is what dudes/dudettes do when they are too old to get up and fight. In my fantasy I'm not 90. On the other hand if I do it on the sly ...
New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 1154 views) Posted: 57d 3h, 46m ago by MangaGhost in News
I wish the choices were worded better. Very still sounds a little obsessive and every once in a while makes it sound like you might read a manga a few times a year at most if you happen to trip over something interesting. How important is it? Not as important as foo ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 2070 views) Posted: 64d 8h, 46m ago by MangaGhost in News
It depends. Some artists their art evolves as they work on a series. Even experienced ones sometimes it takes a little time for them to get comfortable with new designs on a new series. That's why if the story is good I tend to be forgiving on the art. On the o ...
New Poll - Skipping to the End
(20 posts, 1680 views) Posted: 85d 5h, 59m ago by MangaGhost in News
No. Never. Especially if the series is already ended. I mean knowing that its ended is kind of a relief in itself. I don't have to worry that it will go on forever getting steadily worse and usually don't have to worry it got axed. Also a lot series the end is med ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 2185 views) Posted: 147d 1h, 16m ago by MangaGhost in News
Like others have said change is ok if its justified well. The 2 that irk me the most and often aren't handled well are the personality shift or beliefs/values shift. Stuff that comes out of nowhere with little to no build up really ticks me off. For example if a characte ...
New Poll - Web Comics
(19 posts, 1564 views) Posted: 183d 2h, 36m ago by MangaGhost in News
I just don't have time to read everything. I follow a few web comics, but I guess I'll have to pick "several", which is more than a few but closer than none. roll

New Poll - Best Josei
(20 posts, 2073 views) Posted: 211d 3h, 4m 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
(18 posts, 1797 views) Posted: 246d 7h, 21m 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 .

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, 1226 views) Posted: 560d 5h, 53m 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, 1250 views) Posted: 603d 4h, 21m 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, 1717 views) Posted: 645d 2h, 31m 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, 385 views) Posted: 709d 7h, 5m 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, 1301 views) Posted: 1171d 3h, 48m 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, 4133 views) Posted: 1191d 4h, 52m 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, 2629 views) Posted: 1267d 22h, 52m 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, 6979 views) Posted: 1302d 20h, 45m 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, 12494 views) Posted: 1330d 20h, 36m 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, 1425 views) Posted: 1345d 11h, 13m 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, 4474 views) Posted: 1351d 19h, 9m 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, 4165 views) Posted: 1387d 11h, 21m 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, 4592 views) Posted: 1477d 19h, 59m 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, 1002 views) Posted: 1569d 2h, 35m 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, 16401 views) Posted: 1656d 5h, 6m 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 ...
