|Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 15638 views) Posted: 344d 22h, 25m ago by connerity in News
I can agree with the changes, however, I'd like to advice you to keep webtoons.
The line between Korean manga and webtoons is so thin, there's no need to remove them.
It would be silly to lose highly popular series like Noblesse, Tower of God, etc. ...

|New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 4838 views) Posted: 829d 11h, 47m ago by connerity in News
This poll made me think hard if I even have a favorite manga character (and if manga based on anime based on light novels count).
My conclusion is that my favorite manga character is most likely found in Yotsubato, and even though I couldn't exactly choo ...
|New Poll - Archive Fansubs
(23 posts, 1927 views) Posted: 832d 11h, 35m ago by connerity in News
I only archive if all of the following are true:
-I enjoyed it
-I feel I might rewatch it at some point
-the quality is at least 720p BD, which means I basically delete every TV version after I watched it ...
|New Poll - Hentai
(52 posts, 7374 views) Posted: 902d 12h, 31m 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.

|Group Links Removed
(226 posts, 44485 views) Posted: 902d 19h, 30m ago by connerity in News
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, 4435 views) Posted: 920d 19h, 6m 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 ...

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, 3873 views) Posted: 983d 11h, 14m 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

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. ...

|New Poll - Death of the MC
(35 posts, 4161 views) Posted: 1102d 20h, 51m 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 ...

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

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 ...

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. ...

(23 posts, 2931 views) Posted: 1228d 16h, 27m 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) ...

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, 6671 views) Posted: 1270d 17h, 52m 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 ...

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, 12606 views) Posted: 1354d 19h, 27m 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 ...
