|New Poll - Manga Hiatus
(21 posts, 814 views) Posted: 33d 4h, 50m ago by KaoriNite in News
I think the longest hiatus I've taken from manga was about 2 weeks. Ideally, I'd read everyday if there were enough manga translated that interested me. Right now, I don't think I could take a month long hiatus from manga. It'd feel like som ...
|New Poll - Pokemon Go
(21 posts, 1117 views) Posted: 39d 7h, 11m ago by KaoriNite in News
I'm not interested in Pokemon. Even when I was back in elementary school, I was one of the only kids who didn't collect the Pokemon cards or watch the series. I just never understood the appeal. ...
|New Poll - Translating Jokes/Puns
(12 posts, 639 views) Posted: 47d 5h, 16m ago by KaoriNite in News
So I'm guessing this is when a joke doesn't translate well. I'm good with choices 2, 3, and 4 actually. The only reason I'm not okay with option 1 is that I'd be wondering if it was a bad translation (if you don't know the Japanese ...

Quote from Munchingonclouds
I completely agree
I don't agree. There are a lot of people who stay single because they prefer being single. Just because you're single doesn't mean that you're sad and depressed. And just because ...

Thanks for reminding me that I'm #foreveralone But yeah, I'm more comfortable on my own, so I'll stick with that for now. ...
|New Poll - Least Favorite Genre
(33 posts, 1959 views) Posted: 68d 5h, 1m ago by KaoriNite in News
On the list, the only genre I haven't read is mecha. It's a bit weird to call it my least favorite genre though. I don't dislike it per se, I just have zero interest in reading one of these manga. ...
|Tokyo Ghoul Gets Live-Action Film
(1 posts, 203 views) Posted: 69d 7h, 22m ago by KaoriNite in Tokyo Ghoul
I was excited for a moment, and then I remember how many manga/anime have had such poor, poor, shitty excuses for live-action movies made. I won't get my hopes up with this one. ...
|New Poll - Guys with Long Hair

Very random question. A better question would be why wouldn't it okay for guys to have long hair? ...
|New Poll - Wrong Genre
(20 posts, 1357 views) Posted: 82d 7h, 45m ago by KaoriNite in News
I'd try reading it. They're my favorite mangaka for a reason. I'd have faith that they could make any genre good. ...
|New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 1656 views) Posted: 96d 7h, 58m ago by KaoriNite in News
My preferred genre has changed since I first started reading manga 6~ years ago. In the beginning, I mostly read shoujo, and now I mostly read yaoi. I think the biggest change though is that I'm a bit pickier with the manga I read. I'm more aware of wh ...
|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(28 posts, 2273 views) Posted: 100d 7h, 9m ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from imercenary
I get what you're saying but practically every country in the world has already outlawed loli/shota (to some degree).
It doesn't do a goddamn thing about child abuse.
Action like this is nothing more than a way for politicians to sc ...
|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(28 posts, 2273 views) Posted: 102d 5h, 48m ago by KaoriNite in News
I forgot I even submitted this question, lol.
But the reason I asked is because a few months ago, a United Nations envoy said that Japan should ban loli and shota manga. Back when I first started reading manga, I was completely disgusted by the idea of loli and shota, a ...
|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 1665 views) Posted: 110d 2h, 47m ago by KaoriNite in News
Never read an actual American comic book, but I've watched plenty of TV series and movies based on them. I never really had an interest in American comics because they all (or at the famous ones) seem to just be about superheroes, with the same sto ...
|New Poll - Categories
(21 posts, 1376 views) Posted: 116d 14h, 50m ago by KaoriNite in News
I'm a little confused by the question. What exactly do you mean by important? Does this mean my favorite category to read? Or is it the category that I read the most often? Or the category I think impacts the story the most? It could also mean a category tha ...
|Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell
(5 posts, 609 views) Posted: 118d 9h, 58m ago by KaoriNite in Chatter Box
I haven't read or watched Ghost in the Shell so I can't really answer to how well Johansson would do in the role. I just wanted to say I love that this has become an issue. In the past, Hollywood would've chosen a white actor to play a minority' ...
|New Poll - Forgetting the Story
(16 posts, 1023 views) Posted: 123d 14h, 13m ago by KaoriNite in News
I have a horrible memory, so I usually forget right away. When a new chapter is released, I usually reread half of the previous chapter. This is part of the reason I prefer reading completed series. ...
|New Poll - Contacting the Creator
(16 posts, 1135 views) Posted: 142d 11h, 42m ago by KaoriNite in News
I've never tried contacting a mangaka. The only mangaka I would want to contact is the author of Nana because it's my favorite manga, but unfortunately it's unfinished. I know that the author got sick and had to hold off on continuing the manga ...
|New Poll - Drawing Your Own Manga
(15 posts, 1418 views) Posted: 158d 11h, 44m ago by KaoriNite in News
I wrote a few short stories in middle and high school, but that was a decade ago. I hate drawing so I'll never try making a manga, but it's possible I could try writing again. ...
|New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 1741 views) Posted: 173d 7h, 27m ago by KaoriNite in News
When I first got into manga, I would've said extremely. It felt weird if I didn't read any manga in a day. Now, I can go a week or two without reading anything. It's still important to me, but I wouldn't consider myself addicted or an otaku anymo ...
|New Poll - Your Occupation
(35 posts, 3482 views) Posted: 186d 12h, 41m ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from Karonhioktha
This is my situation as well. Trust me, I want to work or go back to school, but my health thinks otherwise.
And I just finished university to became a RN. How unlucky.
I think this would fall under "unemployed and not looking for work" ...
|New Poll - Publication Frequency
(16 posts, 1937 views) Posted: 193d 13h, 6m ago by KaoriNite in News
I prefer the dream world of the entire series in one go. I don't really see how people would feel overwhelmed by this. It would be the same as when a novel is released. And for someone like me who has a horrible memory, I don't have to go back and ...
|New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 1338 views) Posted: 208d 5h, 18m ago by KaoriNite in News
It just depends on the story and the quality of the spin-off. It's clear there are plenty of series that only get a spin-off so the publishers can make more money. From a story standpoint, there isn't a need for a spin-off, but they'll keep getting made ...

Quote from calstine
Two - Jeremy's utterly irrational compliance to the sexual abuse. It would make sense if he and Sandra had nowhere to go -- but in America there were people who urged him to stay and promised to look after him! (Not to mention a girlf ...
|New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4321 views) Posted: 249d 14h, 7m ago by KaoriNite in News
I agree with others have said, it depends on how bad the scanlation is. If the translation is so bad that I am constantly confused about what's happening, then there is no point in having it scanlated. If I notice during the first chapter that the scanlation is really poo ...
|New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 5837 views) Posted: 257d 5h, 59m ago by KaoriNite in News
There's so many I wanted to vote for, it's hard. But I'd have to say as a yaoi and smut reader, the thing that annoys me the most is sexual violence and rape. When it is treated realistically, it can create a really great story. What pisses me off is ...
