|New Poll - Death of the MC
(33 posts, 759 views) Posted: 7d 16h, 3m 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
(47 posts, 1274 views) Posted: 69d 15h, 10m ago by connerity in News
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, 2040 views) Posted: 98d 13h, 13m 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, 2963 views) Posted: 126d 16h, 46m 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, 1013 views) Posted: 133d 11h, 40m 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, 2722 views) Posted: 147d 10h, 47m 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, 2269 views) Posted: 175d 13h, 4m 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, 924 views) Posted: 182d 12h, 53m 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, 786 views) Posted: 203d 12h, 48m 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, 5312 views) Posted: 259d 14h, 39m 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, 690 views) Posted: 432d 22h, 28m 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 ...

|New Poll - Preferred Manga Consumption Method
(17 posts, 457 views) Posted: 489d 10h, 16m ago by connerity in News
On an E-Book reader, but preferably on an I-pad.
Printed volumes are nice and all, but they take up sooo much space.
You can put the equivalent of about 1300 physical tanks (assuming 200 pages, 1 mb = 8 pages) on a single 32GB SDHC card. ...
|New Poll - Japanese Food
(33 posts, 614 views) Posted: 500d 9h, 44m ago by connerity in News
I'd say more than 90% taking this vote haven't even eaten more than 2 of the dishes listed and only base their opinion on what they found awesome in japanese media.
see comments asking where takoyaki is...that's more like a snack and not a ...
|Do you like shotacon, lolicon, both, or neither?
(371 posts, 81286 views) Posted: 586d 2h, 48m ago by connerity in Adult (18+)
I don't like straight vanilla loli sex, especially not involving rape.
The more creative, unusual, perverted situations a loli manga has, the better it is.
I can't say I like all shotas, but shota x older female is often nice, shota x loli is almost always nice, especially ...
|Looking for the name of a specific Hmanga
(1 posts, 352 views) Posted: 586d 4h, 56m ago by connerity in Adult (18+)
The story starts with the female teacher leaving an apartment where she had just slept with one of her students. While leaving she runs into another of her students, turns out that the apartment is set up for the male students of the school she's teaching at. S ...
|Yuri incest hentai mangas/doujinshi?
(1 posts, 2465 views) Posted: 623d 14h, 6m ago by connerity in Adult (18+)
I'd say at least 90% of all incest hentai mangas/doujinshi are straight pairings, with the majority being brother/sister.
I think I've only ever seen like 2 featuring mother x daughter and maybe 5 sister x sister. (and by that I mean only those pairings, there ...
|Site Poll - Chat Box 143 - Online Manga Readers
(36 posts, 3120 views) Posted: 665d 3h, 39m ago by connerity in Chatter Box
Without online readers it would be impossible to start reading new series and/or catch up with series when the dl links of the scanlation groups expire, only very few groups host manga on their own server.
That aside, I'm not using online readers in the class ...
|New Poll - Cooking up Manga
(13 posts, 176 views) Posted: 679d 4h, 14m ago by connerity in News
I'm kinda cooking a lot at home since it's fun for me and I tried various different dishes from japan, but not a single one because of a manga. They all turned out good, though. ...
(0 posts, 467 views) Posted: 679d 4h, 53m ago by connerity in St&rs
I think this sounds very promising, especially since I can relate to it because it's always been my thought that humanity needs to expand into space as soon as possible, we are wasting so many ressources on unnecessary things like war and terrorism.
That a ...
|Chapter 192 (obvs spoilers)
(4 posts, 1095 views) Posted: 684d 3h, 44m ago by connerity in Noblesse
I've read the entire manhwa over the last 3 days and I must say this was the most awesome chapter of them all.
As for the issue with the ragnarok sword, I'd assume that the previous lord did something similar to what the father of the blonde twins did ...
