New Poll - Encouraging More Research
(16 posts, 448 views) Posted: 13d 20h, 19m ago by KaoriNite in News
Although I get interested in whether something I read is true or not, most times I'm too lazy to do research on it. When I read manga that occurs in a historical setting, rather than researching into that historical time-period, I just wish that I could find a historica ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2130 posts, 535714 views) Posted: 19d 12h, 18m ago by KaoriNite in Manga General
A U.N. envoy has recently said that Japan should ban child manga porn ( -calls-on-japan-to-ban-extreme-child-manga-porn).

Do you agree that loli and shota should be banned?

- Yes, of course. It' ...
New Poll - J-Pop
(19 posts, 632 views) Posted: 41d 22h, 16m ago by KaoriNite in News
I think K-Pop has more fans than J-Pop. K-Pop is popular throughout Asia, and has cult followings in the West. As far as I know, J-Pop is only popular in Japan. Although a group like BabyMetal has been able to find some success outside of Japan. ...
New Poll - J-Pop
(19 posts, 632 views) Posted: 42d 13h, 37m ago by KaoriNite in News
I occasionally hear songs I like in anime, but overall I'm not into J-Pop. I've tried looking for J-Pop music, thinking it would be good practice for learning Japanese. But the majority of J-Pop I've come across I haven't liked. ...
New Poll - Sickness
(16 posts, 572 views) Posted: 43d 12h, 12m ago by KaoriNite in News
When I feel the slightest bit sick, I start taking medicine, try to get more sleep, and have lots of tea and soup. So I actually do 3 of these things all at once. But I voted for using pills and medicine. I try to stop my sickness before it gets really bad. If I do nothing, it'll ...
Smut and the Female Gaze
(12 posts, 901 views) Posted: 56d 14h, 6m ago by KaoriNite in Shoujo/Josei
I haven't read shoujo or josei smut in a while, but I'd have to say I don't think the female gaze is drawn for in smut manga in the same way that the male gaze is drawn for in ecchi and hentai manga. Yes, women are attracted to different physic ...

Surprised I've never seen this post.

Anyways, my favorites are

New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 2557 views) Posted: 69d 11h, 35m ago by KaoriNite in News
Well to be fair, while I was into watching shoujo anime, I've read very few shoujo manga.

I remember watching the Skip Beat anime a few years ago, and I got really into it. I thought about reading the manga, but when I saw that it had 150+ chapters I gave up t ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 2557 views) Posted: 69d 23h, 27m ago by KaoriNite in News
This poll has showed me how removed I've become from shoujo. I haven't read any of these manga, and haven't even heard of most of them. ...
Realistic first time
(4 posts, 531 views) Posted: 73d 23h, 59m ago by KaoriNite in Yaoi/Yuri
Just wanted to point out that there doesn't have to be blood or a lot of pain for it to be realistic. If there is blood from anal sex, you are doing something wrong. There does need to be preparation though, which most manga seems to leave out. Anywho, if you ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 2241 views) Posted: 77d 10h, 8m ago by KaoriNite in News
I don't know how I'm factually wrong. I said that One Piece is less popular than it once was, and looking at the manga sales in Japan, One Piece sales have been down over the past 4 years. But sales overall are down, so that may not mean much. And ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 2241 views) Posted: 77d 13h, 36m ago by KaoriNite in News
As a non-Shounen reader, the only one that I have any interest in is Attack on Titan.

By the way, is One Piece really that good? I know it isn't as popular in Japan as it once was. ...
Accepting Nominations for "Best of" Polls [CLOSED]

Quote from lambchopsil
And you may have realized this, but we purposely don't have 18+ content in site polls

We've had polls in the past that asked if we like fan service, if we read hentai, and what bust size we would like girls in manga to have.

This is n ...

New Poll - Maid Cafes
(17 posts, 783 views) Posted: 91d 14h, 50m ago by KaoriNite in News
I've been to Akihabara but I couldn't bring myself to go into a maid cafe. Something just feels very off about it, to me. I agree with @darkraiders, in manga it can seem okay, but in real life it just seems creepy to have someone a skimpy outfit call me m ...
Coffee or Tea?
(140 posts, 8141 views) Posted: 114d 12h, 26m ago by KaoriNite in Chatter Box
I don't like the taste of coffee, so definitely not that one. And although I occasionally drink tea, I wouldn't really consider myself a fan of it. So neither ...
New Poll - Appearances
(16 posts, 1206 views) Posted: 138d 16h, 23m ago by KaoriNite in News
Completely agree. It depends on the genre. If it's a fighting fantasy, probably one of the last things on the readers minds is what outfit is the character going to wear to this battle. But if it's a slice of life, then the reader would expect the characters to be ...
New Poll - Release Gap
(14 posts, 1227 views) Posted: 181d 22h, 37m ago by KaoriNite in News
Fortunately I don't deal with problem often (usually its just that the scanlator drops the series entirely). But I think it would depend on the progress of the series and how many chapters were skipped. For some manga, if you skip a few chapters you can still un ...
New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 2685 views) Posted: 196d 13h, 5m ago by KaoriNite in News
While I wish I could magically make myself fluent in Japanese, I wouldn't switch it with my native language of English. Having English as my primary language is much more beneficial since it's used in so many places. ...
New Poll - Dropping a Series
(25 posts, 2371 views) Posted: 203d 13h, 52m ago by KaoriNite in News
Irregular releases has been the biggest factor for me. The manga that I read usually only releases 1 new chapter a month or every other month. And when the releases become more irregular than that it's hard for me to remember what happened in the l ...
New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(29 posts, 6149 views) Posted: 231d 12h, 3m ago by KaoriNite in News
Normally I watch the first few times, and then skip for later episodes. I'm more likely to watch the opening multiple times, and skip the ending after the first time. But if there is a song I really like, I never skip it. ...
Sexism in manga
(60 posts, 7031 views) Posted: 247d 11h, 7m ago by KaoriNite in Manga General
The sexism in manga is a reflection of the sexism in Japan. If you want to stop the sexism in manga you first would have to work toward stopping the sexism in Japan. Though small changes have been taking place, Japan is still a very "traditional" socie ...
Tadanohito Closing
(25 posts, 3091 views) Posted: 250d 15h, 7m ago by KaoriNite in News
Even if you don't like hentai, this really isn't cause to be happy since there are many more hentai translators out there. ...
New Poll - Best Mood
(13 posts, 1019 views) Posted: 266d 12h, 3m ago by KaoriNite in News
Give me tension. Give me so much tension that I start having heart palpitations. I don't read manga for escapism. I like when a manga leaves a strong impression on me. ...
Which circle of hell is yours? - The Test

I've reached the 6th level. I'm fine being surrounded by heretics.

Purgatory Repending Believers Very Low
Level 1 - Virtuous Non-Believers Moderate
Level 2- Lustful High
Level 3- Gluttonous Low
Level 4 - Prodigal and Avaricious Moderate
