|New Poll - Hentai
(52 posts, 1459 views) Posted: 8d 13h, 42m ago by connerity in News
I only read hentai because there are not enough borderline series out there.
TLR : Darkness ftw
There are also some hentai with very funny stories, but sadly they are like only 0.1%. ...

You are right, if you want missing pages, broken links, out of order pages, pop-up screens for who knows what.
You forgot the watermarks x) ...

There is a multitude of fishy things going on here.
Foremost, the removal of links for ALL groups, not just ones where there is actually material that falls under the DMCA.
Sounds to me like someone from a profiteering online reader like mangafox wants to make s ...

[ x ] 3DS
Yeah, I get it's meant to re-do the old vote.
But I really can't choose between Wii and PS3. I can only safely say the Xbox 360 has less than 5 platform exclusive games that would interest me. ...
|New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 959 views) Posted: 26d 20h, 16m ago by connerity in News
I fail to see the logic behind counting oneshots but not counting doujinshi.
Both establish their story for exactly that one chapter, with doujinshi being written/drawn by fans and oneshots having been published in a manga magazine.
Also, doujinshi =! hentai, for that ma ...

Quote from bnad
Yeah, that's true for me too. English is not my native language, but I always use English subtitle for foreign movie. Even if there's a subtitle in my native language.
Same here. ...
|New Poll - Hating Art
(32 posts, 954 views) Posted: 89d 12h, 24m ago by connerity in News
I REALLY REALLY hate shoujo art style.
The story can be insanely good, but as soon as extremely huge, glossy eyes, background flowers, skinny limbs, etc appear, I will be strongly repulsed by it and instantly drop it.
It goes so far that I don't even look into ...
|New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 2953 views) Posted: 117d 12h, 38m ago by connerity in News
Just like in real life, I tolerate, but am also disgusted, by homosexual M/M relationships.
I tolerate, and am not digusted, but also not particularly interested, by F/F relationships. ...

On my laptop or desktop, depending where I am.
Using the amazing "Mangameeya" software, which is so much better than any online reader. ...
|New Poll - Death of the MC
(35 posts, 1835 views) Posted: 208d 22h, 1m ago by connerity in News
If a character was already dead before the series started, he could not be classified as main character.
An exception to that would be if the complete series was told as a flashback. ending when it reaches the present, but I haven't seen that yet in a manga ...
|New Poll - Starting Age

In 6th or 7th grade.
The Dragonball anime was very popular among the boys of our class and before long, we were buying and exchanging the manga volumes until we had all of them. ...
|New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(51 posts, 3440 views) Posted: 299d 19h, 11m ago by connerity in News
Out of all the anime I've watched so far, there are:
7 where I always watch the OP and ED
15 where I always watch the OP
21 where I skip both
I also know a lot more songs than I've watched anime, since I play a lot of Osu! and those are often very we ...
|New Poll - Fonts (v2)
(70 posts, 5000 views) Posted: 327d 22h, 44m ago by connerity in News
Don't give a damn as long as it's not some fancy artsy style that tries to look cool but fails across the board at readability. ...
|New Poll - Non-Manga Reading
(23 posts, 1469 views) Posted: 334d 17h, 38m ago by connerity in News
I'm currently reading much more novels, since I've kinda exhausted the supply of mangas which interest me. (over 200 series read) ...
|New Poll - Visiting Japan
(58 posts, 6289 views) Posted: 348d 16h, 45m ago by connerity in News
Assuming "money is not an issue" means it's kinda like an all you can eat deal, but with someone else paying for it, then I'd go for the big purchases. En masse, to sell most of them and then stay in japan with all the money I ...
|New Poll - Manga Price
(49 posts, 3198 views) Posted: 376d 19h, 2m ago by connerity in News
About 6€ for fully translated tank. (=7.8USD, ~640 Yen)
The paper quality usually sucks a lot, though.
non-mainstreamseries can be a lot more expensive.
Not super expensive but also far from cheap.
For comparison, novels usually go for about 8-12€, hardcover ...
|New Poll - Handling Criticism
(17 posts, 1242 views) Posted: 383d 18h, 51m ago by connerity in News
I get super angry IRL when people who don't even get a tiny bit of my work criticize my work.
I don't give a damn on the internet. ...

|New Poll - Flashbacks
(18 posts, 1144 views) Posted: 404d 18h, 46m ago by connerity in News
If it's naruto, I'm getting super angry about them.
If it's any other manga, they're fine.
"I've never encountered one"
That would be the option for people who've read like 1-3 series and those happened to not ha ...
|New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 7023 views) Posted: 460d 20h, 37m ago by connerity in News
Most difficult poll/topic ever.
I voted no, but I don't think it applies to all scanlations.
Things like one piece, naruto, bleach, etc. are all widely available in many different languages.
However, for me, the delay is not acceptable.
If I had a way to get a physical copy o ...

|Striking similarities to oreimo?
(5 posts, 875 views) Posted: 634d 4h, 26m ago by connerity in Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
I find this (very good) series very similar to http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=39644
The 2 main heroines are very similar in character to kirino and their relationship is a lot like kirino and kuroneko's, not to mention their looks.
The art style looks v ...
