|New Poll - Guys with Long Hair

As a woman with a super short pixie cut that I have had on and off for the last seven years, I say if you can rock /work it then go for it. ...
|New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 3029 views) Posted: 440d 19h, 26m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I'm not voting, mainly b/c I can't choose! I read a good mix of the four. I usually don't pick based on demographic, but by categories (like "school life", "supernatural", "action", and so on) and the blurb or oth ...
|New Poll - Extra/Omake
(7 posts, 858 views) Posted: 657d 17h, 31m ago by Here_And_Now in News
If it's about the main characters or a side character I enjoyed then I'll definitely read it. If it's a one-shot with nothing the to do with the main story it then depends on either how much I enjoyed the main story or if I like the summary. If I'll re ...
|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 21963 views) Posted: 685d 17h, 19m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I voted "Don't care" because I don't read anything like it or similar to it, so it wouldn't make a difference to me one way or another. That being said, it would be one thing if this kind of stuff was images of actual children, but it's ...
|New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 3229 views) Posted: 699d 11h, 22m ago by Here_And_Now in News
It depends on what kind of "unrealistic" we're talking about. I like fantasy and supernatural manga; but if I'm reading a slice of life and the protagonist suddenly sprouts wings and flies off into space to fight an alien overlord who's nev ...
|New Poll - First Fandom
(27 posts, 2673 views) Posted: 719d 4h, 41m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Technically my first anime was Digimon in early elementary school, though at the time I thought it and the subsequent incarnations were just the most awesome cartoons I'd ever seen and didn't realize it was made in a different country. Years later w ...
|New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 3870 views) Posted: 727d 14h, 20m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I keep Ad-block on at all times now. I used to turn it off for my favorite scanlator and reader sites, but then I started getting intrusive ads trying to download stuff almost every time I clicked. So I blocked them all. I feel bad about it at times, but it'll be a while bef ...
|New Poll - Assuming Genders
(56 posts, 4785 views) Posted: 790d 15h, 30m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I tend to judge based on how they word their comment(s). Sometimes just by the words or phrasing someone uses you can get a good guess at their gender. I know I personally try to use gender neutral avatars and names, even though I am definitely female and ...
|New Poll - City Size
(39 posts, 2957 views) Posted: 839d 14h, 53m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Wait, wait, wait! Less than 5 thousand is rural? 5 thousand? Wow. The closest town to where I live is a few hundred at most. I live a 5 minute drive outside of that town. Maybe that makes me super rural? ...
|New Poll - Crying
(48 posts, 3518 views) Posted: 909d 7h, 47m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I am rarely brought to tears by any form of entertainment, because I'm always aware it's not real or if it is based on something that really happened it's already happened so my tears won't make a difference. I voted for video games b ...
|New Poll - Books
(28 posts, 2189 views) Posted: 923d 7h, 55m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Caring type, most definitely. I take good care of my books and usually reread them fairly often. That's why I try to buy hardback, because almost all my paperbacks eventually start to look dingy. I often find myself caught between my love for books and wa ...
|New Poll - Manga Magazines
(20 posts, 2055 views) Posted: 944d 12h, 22m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Not interested, if only because there aren't enough manga I read that come from the same magazine. If I had the money I would buy digital volumes of some of the series I love to read. ...
|New Poll - Vehicle
(46 posts, 4473 views) Posted: 1174d 11h, 7m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Pssh, I'm takin' a dragon! Talk about a great way to get around! I'd be causing traffic accidents and making little kids so scared they'd wet themselves. I thought about teleporting, but it seems too complicated and risky in my opinion. I fee ...
|Uke With Tattoos
(6 posts, 1957 views) Posted: 1288d 17h, 52m ago by Here_And_Now in Yaoi/Yuri
Have you tried Body Talk Paradox? It has a few stories involving tattoos and tattoo artists; stories 2 - 5 I believe. It isn't quite what you're looking for, but it is good.
I can't get it to link, but the you can find the manga here on mangaupdates. ...
|New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 7733 views) Posted: 1301d 15h, 33m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I put Yes, but it's conditional. It would have to be a service where I can read it on my computer and have the means to obtain a personal digital copy if I like it without paying an arm and a leg. It would also need to have a wide and varied selection, since I like a ...
|New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 12578 views) Posted: 1392d 15h, 0m ago by Here_And_Now in News
At first it really bothered me, but lately I've been automatically correcting mistakes in my mind and not even noticing most. I do wish some groups would take time to read over their translations. I find myself stopping and rewording sentences or wishing I had ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga for Parents
(46 posts, 6404 views) Posted: 1448d 12h, 12m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I need a "they think I'm silly reading comics and watching cartoons at my age" option. They never have, and most likely never will, try manga. ...
|New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 13140 views) Posted: 1483d 16h, 25m ago by Here_And_Now in News
It's a fine line, but no I don't think it is morally/ ethically wrong to scanlate manga. Especially if there is no one publishing it outside of the native country, and even in that case often times publishers drop the manga or never bother to complete it. With th ...
|New Poll - Sequels
(15 posts, 2377 views) Posted: 1546d 5h, 35m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I'll read whichever catches my interest. Usually I start from the story that takes place farthest in the past in the storyline and work my way up to the present. Let's say the prequel is a different set of main characters with the sequel's main char ...
|New Poll - Disliking Stereotypes
(70 posts, 9405 views) Posted: 1581d 15h, 54m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Some may be girls. I know as a girl who reads a fair amount of shounen and seinen manga I either find the find the big chested character to be amusing or absurd and annoying. ...
|New Poll - Disliking Stereotypes
(70 posts, 9405 views) Posted: 1581d 17h, 8m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I feel the same! That's why I voted for the last one, it's essentially the same just reversed. It never ceases to irritate me how a mangaka can put a girl who can't count with her fingers together with perfection in male form and portray it as " ...

|Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 7340 views) Posted: 1711d 7h, 31m ago by Here_And_Now in News
I live in rural America in one of the poorest counties in my state. The nearest Walmart is a 30 minute dive away; the nearest bookstore that carries manga other than Naruto is over an hour drive away, with a poor selection at that. If I wanted to buy any manga I' ...
|Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2229 posts, 598899 views) Posted: 1817d 13h, 27m ago by Here_And_Now in Manga General
I am really curious to know how many readers download manga, and of those how many keep or delete it after they've finished reading it. Sorry if this has already been done.
Maybe something like this:
Do you save downloaded manga?
-I don't downlo ...
|New Poll - Episodic vs. Continuous
(13 posts, 1571 views) Posted: 1840d 8h, 34m ago by Here_And_Now in News
Continuous manga are my favorite; it's nice to know a place and characters you've gotten to know so well will most like continue on for new adventures and bigger and better things. Episodic are good for when you're not in the mood for start ...
