|Post a genre that you hate, and let others try to change your mind
(175 posts, 16263 views) Posted: 287d 20h, 34m ago by Saons in Manga General
The genres I dislike are ecchi, sports, harem, mecha and yaoi. But I've certainly found a few series that I liked within these genres. ...

I feel like there are a lot of cultural, socio-political aspects I am ignorant of going into the laws, but I believe them to be too lax. ...
|New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 4723 views) Posted: 344d 17h, 22m ago by Saons in News
I put "I'm a girl, and I avoid both types". This sounds like I'm close-minded, but in truth I hate reading yaoi/yuri because I find them typically more offensive to the LGBT than other types of manga are to their corresponding demographic (har ...

Cat Street, if I remember correctly. But it's got a lot of other drama ...
|what makes a manga "cliche"
(9 posts, 784 views) Posted: 402d 20h, 37m ago by Saons in Manga General
More for how the cliches are written then the actual use of them. Try to imagine a story you know that DOESN'T have a cliche of some sort. Girl falls in love, etc. Cliche's don't make a story bad, per se, it's the overuse of them. Sometim ...

Kisswood. Gorgeous art and an even more unique story. Just a fascinating read all around.
The Pale Horse. A murder mystery of sorts, with an excellent plot line full of twists. ...
|New Poll - Manga vs Others
(33 posts, 2270 views) Posted: 418d 14h, 38m ago by Saons in News
I have to say I really like webcomics, at least, the asian-author ones. I've read a few western-author ones that ranged from decent to amazing, but they tend to be dropped for whatever reason (Hanna is not a Boy's Name, for example).
I've just ...
|Have you met any famous people?

The closest I've gotten is:
My brother played with Dan Aykroyd's daughter, I'm guessing Danielle (same birth year). And they were so young he doesn't remember! Haha. I think my dad was designing him a house or lake house or someth ...
|Button Press Gives 10 Grand
(52 posts, 2718 views) Posted: 474d 19h, 11m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
I think most people here are--rightfully so--treating this moral dilemma as inconsequential because it isn't possible, hence the majority "yes" answers. However, I think the majority of those "yes" answers are people just pretending to ...
|Disabled Children - Abortion?
(63 posts, 4101 views) Posted: 490d 19h, 30m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
It really depends. My sister's got down's syndrome and autism. My mother only knew about the down's syndrome when she was in the womb, as her autism was regressive, and obviously kept her because down's can be very high functi ...
|NEW MIYAZAKI MOVIE?!!
(14 posts, 1773 views) Posted: 495d 0h, 54m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
Ponyo was such a letdown, I'm not setting my hopes too high. Miyazaki might be too far from the days of Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away I'll definitely be giving it a shot, though. ...
|A lighthearted, happy story
(13 posts, 871 views) Posted: 501d 23h, 43m ago by Saons in I'm Looking For...
Hi there, I'm really depressed today so I was hoping people could lead me to some really upbeat, happy mangas. They don't necessarily have to be comedy, either. Just something with a lot of happy. Genre doesn't matter, as long as it's n ...
|Which game are you looking forward to the most?
(443 posts, 31137 views) Posted: 502d 18h, 7m ago by Saons in Games
The Last of Us, mainly. I wouldn't mind trying out the new Animal Crossing or Bravely Default if it comes to NA (which it probably won't within this year).
and The Last Guardian... please come out!!! ...

Do take note that I haven't read that many mindfuck mangas lol ...
|Girls, what do you think about female characters with XXL boobs?
(81 posts, 8887 views) Posted: 515d 4h, 40m ago by Saons in Manga General
Large breasts obviously exist, and I would actually love to read a story where it was used without constantly being something to point out sexually. However, when they're just used for "ecchi purposes" and flop around like water balloons I cringe ...
|Need feedback on my digital art!

I'll point out some things I've noticed.
You need to add depth!!
For both (especially the first one) it looks too chaotic -- you need to have some sort of backlighting that pushes them out of the background. But the hair and the clothes don't have a lot ...

Definitely seconding Kisswood. ...
|Good manga with ugly girl?
(15 posts, 3399 views) Posted: 549d 17h, 10m ago by Saons in I'm Looking For...
Juuoku Shoujo (though this is the glasses-transformation kind)
Miunohri to Swan (and this is some magical transforming kind)
Bara no Tameni is probably the closest to what you want, though. ...

(16 posts, 2532 views) Posted: 570d 14h, 26m ago by Saons in Shoujo/Josei
I can't think of a worst love triangle--there's too many.
As for best, I think it was probably Kanata Kara, because it actually served a purpose. As opposed to just delaying the plot, it helped the main guy realize his feelings for the main girl, and you knew ...

Quote from TaoPaiPai
i dont think ive seen anyone irl with dimples
probably not a common genetic defect around here lol
IMO its very disgusting
Well that's only slightly offensive. Luckily the majority of the world disagrees with you; they're typically found ...

Interesting! I have dimples, but not everyone in my family has them. All I remember is that it's a defect: a shortened facial muscle. I would like to see the results of this survey!
/I can't seem to access the survey. Might just be me, but you should maybe p ...
|The Hobbit! seen it yet?
(23 posts, 1680 views) Posted: 585d 18h, 22m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
Saw it! Loved it. And I love the novel too, so even though there's a lot of differences, they're each their own piece. Take into account that film is a different genre of storytelling when you go to see it, that is, if you're easily offended by changes f ...

|Your Dream Guy
(59 posts, 4723 views) Posted: 624d 16h, 23m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
I have to say that I'm not very shallow. I don't mean to sound holier than those that are particular, it's just who I am. I'm not really attracted to a guy until I know what he's like--his personality. I like a guy with a sense of humour, but is ...
