|New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 2339 views) Posted: 205d 3h, 56m 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, 685 views) Posted: 422d 2h, 0m 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, 17159 views) Posted: 450d 1h, 48m 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, 2725 views) Posted: 463d 19h, 52m 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, 2213 views) Posted: 483d 13h, 10m 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, 3164 views) Posted: 491d 22h, 49m 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, 4086 views) Posted: 555d 0h, 0m 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, 2399 views) Posted: 603d 23h, 22m 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, 2859 views) Posted: 673d 16h, 17m 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, 1841 views) Posted: 687d 16h, 24m 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, 1687 views) Posted: 708d 20h, 51m 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, 3900 views) Posted: 938d 19h, 36m 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, 1745 views) Posted: 1053d 2h, 22m 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, 6847 views) Posted: 1066d 0h, 3m 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, 11282 views) Posted: 1156d 23h, 30m 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, 5796 views) Posted: 1212d 20h, 41m 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, 12022 views) Posted: 1248d 0h, 54m 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, 2116 views) Posted: 1310d 14h, 5m 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, 8222 views) Posted: 1346d 0h, 24m 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, 8222 views) Posted: 1346d 1h, 37m 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 " ...

If Axel from Kingdom Hearts was real I'd be all over that! ...
|Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 6513 views) Posted: 1475d 16h, 0m 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
(2155 posts, 547676 views) Posted: 1581d 21h, 56m 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, 1388 views) Posted: 1604d 17h, 4m 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 ...
