|New Poll - Eating Apples
(15 posts, 266 views) Posted: 7d 11h, 6m ago by KaoriNite in News
Yay my random poll was chosen! I wanted to ask because I never peel apples and had never heard of anyone peeling apples until I read manga. The only reason I would peel an apple is to cook it, like when making apple pie or something. Besides, isn't the pe ...

Right now, I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm and usually wake up between 6am-9am. Though sometimes I suffer from insomnia. On those nights, I'll wake up between 3am-5am and won't be able to fall back asleep. ...

I don't hide it, but I don't go out of my way to talk about it. But when I talk about it, I do hide that I'm into yaoi. ...
|New Poll - Long Series
(16 posts, 634 views) Posted: 34d 23h, 0m ago by KaoriNite in News
Well I think the longest series I've read is Red River and that had 28 volumes. Being a shoujo and yaoi fan I don't get the opportunity to read a lot of long series. But I kind of feel that there's no such thing as too long. What matters is keeping up th ...

Do you peel apples before eating them?
- Yes, always

- I don't eat apples
This is a bit random but I often come across scenes in manga where the characters peel an apple before eating it. I don't know anyone who peels an ...

(40 posts, 1559 views) Posted: 41d 11h, 8m ago by KaoriNite in News
Well I can't read something with a bad beginning because I'd drop the series immediately. There's no guarantee it'd get better, and I wouldn't want to continue when the story was poorly planned from the beginning. And a bad endin ...

We've done ones similar to this, but not sure if we've had this exact one before:
Usually when a story is adapted to a different medium, such as a manga being made into an anime or anime into a live-action, we can expect the story to be changed in so ...
|New Poll - Doujinshi
(10 posts, 574 views) Posted: 55d 19h, 17m ago by KaoriNite in News
Seldom. Like someone else mentioned, djs are for shippers, which I am not. I always come across the yaoi djs, where they take straight characters and make them into gay lovers. Now I love yaoi, but I don't like seeing my favorite characters changed. Whe ...

I joined 6 years ago. I was using this site for a while before that though. I think for about a year. Anyways, I first used the site to find new manga to read but eventually realized I needed to keep a list of the manga I was reading. So I thought about it for a couple month ...

I've read a couple of romance manga that were about archery and enjoyed them. But it's really hard to choose one when there are so many options. I don't even really like sports, but a good manga could make any sport interesting. But for m ...
|New Poll - How Fast Do You Read?
(21 posts, 1296 views) Posted: 98d 9h, 16m ago by KaoriNite in News
If I'm not busy, a few hours. I like to find completed series and read them all at once. I have a pretty poor memory, so sometimes I'll start a story at night, and when I go back to finish it the next day I've already forgotten what was happening. It' ...

The Sailor Moon anime. I first saw it when I was about 6 years old. Of course I didn't know it was anime then. I also the watched Dragon Ball Z when I was around this age. Some years later, Cartoon Network started their Toonami programming and brought b ...

I have no interest in what the mangaka, voice actors, or what-have-you are like as long as their work itself is good, don't consume doujinshi or other fanworks, don't care about getting signatures or buying collectibles, never was i ...

For me, I don't have a particular setting that I prefer to read. But I just wish that whatever setting the author chooses, they do their research and depict the setting accurately. There are plenty of times I've read a manga where the setting was outside ...

My question would be how many translators would know the proper Chinese translation? And how much effort would it take to find out the correct Chinese pronunciation and how to reflect pronunciation in English?
Also, for me since I don't know Chinese it r ...

As a young kid, I watched Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. At the time I didn't know that they were Japanese. When I was in middle school, I found out they were anime when they started re-airing on Toonami. I occasionally watched anime on Toonami through ...

I listen to a few anime songs, but it's not even often enough to say occasionally. My favorite OST would be the one for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. But actually I'm not even a fan of that anime. I tried watching it, but just couldn't get in ...

I wanted to be an actress. It seemed like an easy way to make money. You just play pretend and get paid millions of dollars. And I was playing pretend everyday for free. I gave up that idea when I got to middle school and was too nervous to audition for the drama ...
