New Poll - Categories
(20 posts, 369 views) Posted: 4d 12h, 41m 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, 403 views) Posted: 6d 7h, 50m 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, 390 views) Posted: 11d 12h, 4m 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, 673 views) Posted: 30d 9h, 33m 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, 748 views) Posted: 46d 9h, 35m 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, 1182 views) Posted: 61d 5h, 18m 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, 2693 views) Posted: 74d 10h, 32m 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, 1508 views) Posted: 81d 10h, 57m 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, 1066 views) Posted: 96d 3h, 9m 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, 3664 views) Posted: 137d 11h, 58m 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, 4802 views) Posted: 145d 3h, 50m 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, 2198 views) Posted: 151d 5h, 35m 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, 2671 views) Posted: 158d 12h, 12m 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, 1409 views) Posted: 172d 10h, 49m 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
(2185 posts, 569584 views) Posted: 178d 2h, 47m 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, 1563 views) Posted: 200d 12h, 45m 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, 1563 views) Posted: 201d 4h, 7m 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, 1465 views) Posted: 202d 2h, 41m 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, 1644 views) Posted: 215d 4h, 35m 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 ...
Best Yaoi

Surprised I've never seen this post.

Anyways, my favorites are

New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 3815 views) Posted: 228d 2h, 5m 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, 3815 views) Posted: 228d 13h, 56m 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, 619 views) Posted: 232d 14h, 29m 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, 3395 views) Posted: 236d 0h, 37m 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 ...
