Quote from lolnameless
That's right. Let's unplug from the internet or something, idk.

"idk" is the actual meaning for most of your replies, you finally got it.

Not expert here. Its because you lack the basic concept. Its not the ISP which wiretap you,
They must keep record of traffic and ip for safety issues. It's the Govt/law enforcer who look into it. ISP don't keep the contents. The contents are reviewed by ...

Usually, it's the copyright holders who report to police.

The police will collect the evidence and decide when to take action. The ISPs do the last part of the job, which is revealing users' info on police request. ISPs are neutral but the local law can require ...

I guess you are living in a place with no copyright concern. Otherwise, Please read the news. You can always tell others to ignore the red light but its their right to decide to obey or not.

You can always use torrent to share other stuff. But torrent is phasing out in fields like these as users' ip are nude, unless users are hiding ip with a paid proxy. Uploading copyright matter is illegal in many countries while Downloading is illegal in some includin ...
Splitting rating

Quote from Lorska
No that's because the ratings are biased. You will give something you just read a perfect rating, thinking this is truly the best of the best, but realize later that it is not that great or you are pissed and just rate it the lowest possible score. Th ...
Splitting rating

Is is better to split the rating into a more detailed view?
I've thought about rating for arts and rating for story which can then sum up as the overall rating.

And adding an analysis to split the overall ratings into two groups: before and after completing the series. ...

NTR Vs. Vanilla

NTR is a good excitement component but not limited to sex scenes. It's been used in novels and comics with adult romance background, many closely related to real life. The term NTR become more popular after being ported to some stupid AV / adult gam ...

It's good to get a estimate.
From time to time, I see people saying most manga are already scanlated because they have read (downloaded) a lot. ...

Thanks,

I noted the genre/categories pages but they do not compared each categories with Korean and Chinese manga under the same category.

If the numbers are charted per year, the growth/decline rate in the industry may be seen (provided that the DB is i ...

Is there any site which summarize and list all the new tankoubon releases in Japan weekly/monthly?

There's a site for anime like this: http://m-p.sakura.ne.jp/

lots of false seinen labels around?

Quote from NeoFireHawk
It seems that you don't understand yet. Look: It's true that Yotsuba to! may be put into a shoujo magazine without any problem -and it could even be successful- but if a manga is seinen or not it's not decided by us, but b ...

(82 posts, 13755 views) Posted: 2702d 6h, 30m ago by megane007 in Shounen/Seinen
It depends on what purpose that MU set up the label.
Is it used to let people know what kind of audience the manga is targeted to Or just stick to the so called definition?
Not only salarymen have pressures after all. Yotsubato is all-age, you can safely label it from sho ...
Most Depressing Manga
(316 posts, 68430 views) Posted: 2729d 10h, 57m ago by megane007 in Manga General
Interesting opposing ideas, to me Vampire Juuji Kai doesn't meet the rim of depressing manga. I didn't even feel sad when I read the past of Strauss. I'm more inclined to place it in the romance & fantasy genre,

The characters of Hitsuji n ...
