New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 267 views) Posted: 10d 0h, 12m 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 ...
Thoughts and reactions

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, 1932 views) Posted: 51d 9h, 1m 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, 2503 views) Posted: 59d 0h, 53m 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 ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 1082 views) Posted: 65d 2h, 38m ago by KaoriNite in News
I can only really answer based on what I've experienced before, which is a change in importance/relevance. What I'm thinking of is when a main character is suddenly made a side character, and a new main character enters the picture. Just recen ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 1280 views) Posted: 72d 9h, 15m ago by KaoriNite in News
Yeah, there's nothing much for me to do if my favorite series gets dropped, which has happened numerous times. I'm currently learning Japanese, but I'm still at a very low level and it's a pain to read raws when I have to look up 90% of ...
New Poll - Encouraging More Research
(16 posts, 804 views) Posted: 86d 7h, 51m 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
(2155 posts, 547835 views) Posted: 91d 23h, 49m 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, 974 views) Posted: 114d 9h, 48m 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, 974 views) Posted: 115d 1h, 9m 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, 925 views) Posted: 115d 23h, 43m 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, 1138 views) Posted: 129d 1h, 38m 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, 3272 views) Posted: 141d 23h, 7m 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, 3272 views) Posted: 142d 10h, 59m 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, 575 views) Posted: 146d 11h, 31m 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, 2927 views) Posted: 149d 21h, 39m 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, 2927 views) Posted: 150d 1h, 8m 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
(18 posts, 1160 views) Posted: 164d 2h, 22m 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?
(156 posts, 8871 views) Posted: 186d 23h, 58m 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, 1375 views) Posted: 211d 3h, 55m 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, 1381 views) Posted: 254d 10h, 9m 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, 2945 views) Posted: 269d 0h, 37m 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. ...
