|New Poll - American Comics

I have a really difficult time relating to the characters in american comics. I say this as an american. I enjoy plenty of other forms of american media that don't exhibit the same issue. ...
|New Poll - Types of Relationships
(25 posts, 3711 views) Posted: 866d 16h, 21m ago by asdfffdsa in News
Monogamous as I've always found them to have the most depth and thus the most interesting. Sometimes I think manga go the harem route simply because the mangaka doesn't want to put the effort in to create the depth that's necessary to m ...

(204 posts, 24955 views) Posted: 950d 18h, 8m ago by asdfffdsa in News
Banning any sort of hand drawn or computer generated imagery that people view/create privately is absolutely insane. Just because you think it's sick or the people that view/create it are sick in no way justifies depriving people of it. IMO if the simple disgu ...

No, not a chance. I hate owning so many physical things, regardless of whether or not it's a movie, book, game, or comic. In fact if there were an eReader that was large enough and wasn't so needlessly limited and locked down as the ones are tod ...

I may actually do it depending on what sort of reality the character lives in. I'm not saying my current life is at all bad--I'm actually very happy, but I'm always open to opportunities that could make me even happier (and what could be happier than ...

|New Poll - IRC Usage
(32 posts, 3540 views) Posted: 1279d 15h, 26m ago by asdfffdsa in News
I'm confused by the people that say they don't have enough time for it anymore since it would seem to me that the normal usage of IRC is to idle 98% of the time and only jump into the conversation as needed (e.g. maybe glance at it a few times a day ...

Quote from Chayto
I would just tell her to go f*** herself for being so selfish and not realizing that I was there for her everytime and that I would do anything for her. Also for not realizing that we are best suited for each other and that the other guy is probably a fu** ...

(5 posts, 1154 views) Posted: 1300d 3h, 43m ago by asdfffdsa in Sakurasaku Shoukougun
I wonder what other people would do in a situation like this (at the time of writing I'm on chapter 5). If it were me I'd just tell her that I like her and therefore I couldn't be her teacher anymore, and then move on. It would be too painful and dishones ...
|New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 5075 views) Posted: 1314d 18h, 50m ago by asdfffdsa in News
Very few. Most authors milk a series until it's stale, but I guess that's an unfortunate consequence of publisher control and the need to make a living off of one's work. I expect quality will be a lot better when technology advances to a point whe ...

For anyone that currently lives in Japan, can you comment on the work culture? I've heard that very long hours and fusing work life with life outside of work are often expected, but I'd like to hear what people have to say (e.g. is it easy to find exceptio ...
|New Poll - Manga Subscription
(65 posts, 8253 views) Posted: 1562d 19h, 54m ago by asdfffdsa in News
From a single publisher? Not a chance.
The distribution medium, whatever it is, needs to be less painful than pirating, and only then will people use it (and mangaka will be better off). That means cheap, simple, and extensive (not a single publisher ... in fact, how about ...

In anime/manga usually I find that the middle-aged and elderly appear more asian, but children, teenagers, and young adults look pretty caucasian or at least half caucasian. In some manga the difference in appearance between both age groups is so vast that it' ...

I love trap manga with romance, but I'm tired of the trope where just about every other male in the manga falls for the trap too (or starts creating "fan clubs" or whatever)--despite knowing the trap truly is a trap. In such manga, society gen ...

They need characters for which the target demographic can relate to and empathize with. It is for reasons of both sympathy and jealously.
On one hand, Japanese girls aren't necessarily known for having large breasts.
For the same reason, your average ...
