|Post a genre that you hate, and let others try to change your mind
(195 posts, 17965 views) Posted: 337d 5h, 2m 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, 4991 views) Posted: 394d 1h, 50m 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, 829 views) Posted: 452d 5h, 5m 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, 2397 views) Posted: 467d 23h, 6m 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, 525 views) Posted: 524d 3h, 9m 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, 2787 views) Posted: 524d 3h, 39m 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, 4211 views) Posted: 540d 3h, 57m 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, 1815 views) Posted: 544d 9h, 22m 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, 903 views) Posted: 551d 8h, 11m 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, 31666 views) Posted: 552d 2h, 35m 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, 9210 views) Posted: 564d 13h, 7m 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, 3733 views) Posted: 599d 1h, 38m 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, 2590 views) Posted: 619d 22h, 54m 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, 1727 views) Posted: 635d 2h, 49m 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, 4861 views) Posted: 674d 0h, 51m 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 ...
