New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 837 views) Posted: 19d 8h, 21m ago by Baniita in News
Last time I counted, I believe I owned about 260+ volumes of English-translated manga, and 28 Japanese tankoubon. ...Ironically, the doujinshi I have probably add up to cost more. Lots and lots.

I've reached around 3000 volumes read though (about 2200 of tho ...
Magazine Big 3

Just AKB49 for me, really... Koe no Katachi should've just stayed a one-shot. It got boring. Nanatsu no Taizai has gotten really downhill; the plot's a mess and the writing is no good. UQ Holder seemed good from the first few chapters and then it got rea ...

7th Garden looks amazing...
(4 posts, 300 views) Posted: 41d 23h, 22m ago by Baniita in 7th Garden
I was in a convenience store yesterday and SQ had the first chapter (I think?) of 7th Garden. The art was gorgeous. O _O Is any group picking it up?

I can't read much Japanese yet (still studying). If anyone else read it, was it good? What was it about? ...

They do explain it in the second season. Just watch.

Just as Sebas was about to consume Ciel's soul, Claude took it. I forget the details. It didn't start over.

Does a site like this exist yet?
(1 posts, 276 views) Posted: 42d 19h, 6m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Unless there's a site like this already, but I'm wondering why this doesn't exist (to my knowledge):

A manga release aggregation site like Manga Updates, but since this place isn't allowed to host scanlation group site links anymore (to my ...
Mangatraders now 100% down, any new info?

New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3538 views) Posted: 151d 16h, 43m ago by Baniita in News
The problem is the lack of good authors for GL. Girl Friends remains really the only GL I actually really like. Morinaga Milk is a goddess (god? idk). Though I have been noticing more GL with actual subtance though; yay! Collectors and Octave!
And girl-girl relationshi ...

(93 posts, 3538 views) Posted: 151d 16h, 46m ago by Baniita in News
I wanted to vote "BL", but it wasn't an option. :T (And no, yaoi and BL are NOT synonymous. So I went with shounen-ai, even though that term is incorrect and outdated.
Hahaha wow--the numbers for yaoi are impressive, though.

I read every demog ...

How to find more manga (guide)
(43 posts, 18515 views) Posted: 338d 2h, 22m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Ehe, I guess this is something you can only do if you're in Japan or have access to a Japanese bookstore overseas, but I like to take a pencil and paper to Book-Off, K-Books, or manga cafes. I write down the titles that catch my interest, and look it up to read ...
How much work do redrawers/cleaners do?
(13 posts, 2203 views) Posted: 338d 2h, 38m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Aaah, I see. So this "Topaz" plug-ins explains a lot. I'll have to look into it.

The kanzenban sound like they'd take even longer to release than the tankoubon, and those are only for the very popular series, anyway, right? The SJ in N. America ...
Post a genre that you hate, and let others try to change your mind
(195 posts, 17990 views) Posted: 340d 2h, 33m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Sports manga (for guys), pointless and shallow ecchi manga (I read het hentai just fine though, for some reason--maybe because I know it's supposed to be shallow?), and retro manga.

Seriously, Slam Dunk was cheesy as hell. I never actually picked up GTO ...

Hoshino Katsura, who goes on hiatus every three months, releases a short chapter, repeat process a few times, and then takes a year hiatus, repeat. Goes off to design for Valvrave (possibly one of the most retarded anime I've forced myself to watch), h ...
NYCC 2013 Manga License Round-Up

Wow, UQ Holder is only in single-digit chapters, isn't it? Already.

Well, Negima was really good... UQ Holder's protagonist is totally lame, though. :T

Yaaay! Nanatsu got serialized! Of course it did. That shit is great.

Ah, I really like the mangaka of Kuro Bar ...
Manga Reborn: The future of manga scanlation?
(10 posts, 1122 views) Posted: 340d 3h, 19m ago by Baniita in Manga General
Ooh, sounds like a great concept. But just that, and doesn't sound feasible. The good stuff are all owned by grubby, stingy companies. Sharing culture in Japan is different.

Also, I'm not interested in retro manga at all. :C I tried Jojo several times, and I ju ...
How much work do redrawers/cleaners do?
(13 posts, 2203 views) Posted: 340d 3h, 42m ago by Baniita in Manga General
So I live in Japan now, and I went into a convenience store to take a look at last week's Jump, and the printing quality is absolutely horrible--no wonder it's only 250 yen. The blacks are grey, and aren't solids at all, the printing paper are hideous sh ...
good untranslated manga
(12 posts, 920 views) Posted: 353d 8h, 17m ago by Baniita in I'm Looking For...
Ah, I second Bambino Secondo.

Kami no Shizuku is very good (it's an A+ seinen sommelier manga), but Vertical dropped it after the 5th bundle volume. The art is fantastic, it's informational, and interesting.

Life was licensed by Tokyopop, but since they c ...

Quote from cl123
I am really curious about the relationship between gender and "shipping"/rooting for your characters to be together. From my understanding, the stereotype is that females predominantly do so, so I am interested to see if that's ...
On hiatus again?

You do know that Hoshino has wrist problems, right? > _>
Her doctor advised her to take it easy, basically. More recently, she designed characters for Valvrave the Liberator.
I really hope she's making enough money to survive on. OTL

New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 4677 views) Posted: 554d 18h, 28m ago by Baniita in News
Depends on the publisher and the range of manga.

For me to subscribe, they must:
- Not tamper with the original SFX's--dealing with them like Del Rey does would be perfect.
- Keep honorifics.
- NOT TAMPER WITH THE ART like Viz does to censor their serie ...
Quality vs. Speed (mangapirate case)
(301 posts, 36354 views) Posted: 560d 23h, 35m ago by Baniita in Manga General
It's all a war for web traffic and ad revenue or something. = A= Which is reasonable, since, well, server costs.

I don't think mangastream should be lumped in with the speedscans you're referring to, though. The groups now doing the Big Three ...

Yeah, except guys who like lesbians and get turned on think about getting involved and turn it into a threesome. e _e)"

I know it turns some girls on, but I still don't get it, though. I'd like to think it's just because they imagine themselves getting ...
