New Poll - Background Art

As long as they're not like the backgrounds in Bleach.

By backgrounds in Bleach, I mean white space.

New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3222 views) Posted: 102d 6h, 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 ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3222 views) Posted: 102d 6h, 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 So I went with shounen-ai, even though that term is incorrect and outdated.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 ...
Beelzebub is ending? Or is it getting axed?

I love Beelzebub, but it's been terrible as of the later arcs. :< ...
How to find more manga (guide)
(43 posts, 18189 views) Posted: 288d 16h, 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, 1934 views) Posted: 288d 16h, 39m 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
(175 posts, 16278 views) Posted: 290d 16h, 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 ...
Top 5 Mangaka

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, 1091 views) Posted: 290d 17h, 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 ...

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, 850 views) Posted: 303d 22h, 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

And there ne ...
New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 4461 views) Posted: 505d 8h, 29m 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, 35502 views) Posted: 511d 13h, 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 ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate

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 ...

Ugh. Been there, done that. Those are heaps of yaoi to avoid.

I also read lots of shoujo (copious amounts of manga, really), mostly for the art or when I'm bored. I rarely ever end up supporting the couple, but the stories are sometimes interesting. Sometimes ...

Any Good Horror Series That Can Fit My Tastes?
(21 posts, 1362 views) Posted: 512d 22h, 37m ago by Baniita in I'm Looking For...
Hmm, Japanese horror manga is a bit strange. In the way that it's a lot creepier, but not in the Hollywood gore-and-blood style, which isn't scary at all.

Uzumaki. Itou Junji's stuff creeps me out. Oh god.

New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 12813 views) Posted: 512d 22h, 51m ago by Baniita in News
Wow!

I find that interesting. Most heterosexual men (Northern American men, anyway) find lesbians hot.

I think I know what you mean, though. A lot of my guy friends think that I read BL to fap, which I find insulting since it suggests that I only think with my hormones and ...

Why is it not manly? :X Your definition of "manly" hurts. Ow.

That's like saying that straight male actors aren't manly for acting out gay men. In fact, I think they're more manly in their self-confidence. How they choose to act out of pa ...
