|New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 829 views) Posted: 12d 1h, 24m 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, 505 views) Posted: 228d 23h, 28m 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, 12955 views) Posted: 256d 23h, 16m 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, 2190 views) Posted: 270d 17h, 19m 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, 1676 views) Posted: 290d 10h, 38m 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, 2328 views) Posted: 298d 20h, 17m 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, 3335 views) Posted: 361d 21h, 27m 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, 1798 views) Posted: 410d 20h, 50m 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, 2170 views) Posted: 480d 13h, 45m 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, 1464 views) Posted: 494d 13h, 52m 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, 1349 views) Posted: 515d 18h, 19m 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, 3252 views) Posted: 745d 17h, 4m 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, 1529 views) Posted: 859d 23h, 49m 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, 5858 views) Posted: 872d 21h, 30m 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, 10061 views) Posted: 963d 20h, 58m 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, 5182 views) Posted: 1019d 18h, 9m 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, 10924 views) Posted: 1054d 22h, 22m 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, 1830 views) Posted: 1117d 11h, 33m 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, 7235 views) Posted: 1152d 21h, 51m 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, 7235 views) Posted: 1152d 23h, 5m 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, 5604 views) Posted: 1282d 13h, 28m 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
(2087 posts, 514305 views) Posted: 1388d 19h, 24m 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, 1205 views) Posted: 1411d 14h, 32m 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 ...
