Post a genre that you hate, and let others try to change your mind
(195 posts, 22585 views) Posted: 776d 8h, 52m 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. ...
Child porn in Japan

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, 7239 views) Posted: 833d 5h, 40m 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 ...
Main character chooses The Other Guy

Cat Street, if I remember correctly. But it's got a lot of other drama smile ...
what makes a manga "cliche"
(9 posts, 1146 views) Posted: 891d 8h, 55m 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 ...
Favorite Webcomic
(31 posts, 2469 views) Posted: 892d 9h, 2m ago by Saons in I'm Looking For...
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, 3248 views) Posted: 907d 2h, 56m 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?
(5 posts, 666 views) Posted: 963d 6h, 59m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
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, 3386 views) Posted: 963d 7h, 29m 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, 5024 views) Posted: 979d 7h, 48m 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 ...

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 sad I'll definitely be giving it a shot, though. ...
A lighthearted, happy story
(13 posts, 1073 views) Posted: 990d 12h, 1m 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, 36796 views) Posted: 991d 6h, 25m 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!!! cry ...

Girls, what do you think about female characters with XXL boobs?
(81 posts, 12220 views) Posted: 1003d 16h, 57m 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!
(6 posts, 901 views) Posted: 1017d 7h, 23m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
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 ...
Good romance featuring a classy, well-dresssed, fashionable female lead

Good, completed adventure series.

Definitely seconding Kisswood. ...
Good manga with ugly girl?
(15 posts, 8197 views) Posted: 1038d 5h, 28m ago by Saons in I'm Looking For...
Peter Panda
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. ...
► ◄Triangles?!?!? ▲ ▼
(16 posts, 3098 views) Posted: 1059d 2h, 44m 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 ...
Dimples survey

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 ...
Dimples survey
(11 posts, 1058 views) Posted: 1067d 4h, 36m ago by Saons in Chatter Box
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, 1994 views) Posted: 1074d 6h, 39m 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, 5928 views) Posted: 1113d 4h, 41m 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 ...
