New Poll - Manga Magazines
(20 posts, 822 views) Posted: 204d 20h, 36m ago by asdfffdsa in News
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 ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2269 views) Posted: 216d 18h, 53m ago by asdfffdsa in News
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 - Pursuing Romance

Out of pity I chose childhood friend ... they get ignored way too often ...
New Poll - IRC Usage
(32 posts, 1773 views) Posted: 274d 19h, 40m 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 ...
New Poll - Hentai

What would you do in this situation?

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** ...
What would you do in this situation?
(5 posts, 582 views) Posted: 295d 7h, 56m 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, 2509 views) Posted: 309d 23h, 3m 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 ...
New Poll - Living in Japan
(48 posts, 4193 views) Posted: 533d 22h, 16m ago by asdfffdsa in News
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, 4692 views) Posted: 558d 0h, 7m 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 ...

New Poll - Asian Characters
(46 posts, 4951 views) Posted: 715d 12h, 14m ago by asdfffdsa in News
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' ...
Trap manga without ...
(4 posts, 1305 views) Posted: 716d 8h, 54m ago by asdfffdsa in I'm Looking For...
Hello,

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 ...
New Poll - Author Pet Peeve

Worst pet peeve with the author [of that list]:

Divert the plot away from the main characters.


Worst pet peeve with the author [in general]:

Character creep. ...

Why do chicks in Shojo Manga have no tits?
(194 posts, 32942 views) Posted: 1647d 13h, 0m ago by asdfffdsa in Shoujo/Josei
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 ...

Worst Shoujo Cliche!
(520 posts, 106472 views) Posted: 1652d 17h, 44m ago by asdfffdsa in Shoujo/Josei
Attractive, slutty, popular guy takes an inexplicable liking to inconspicuous girl.

Transpose "guy" and "girl", negate "slutty", and now you've got a shounen cliche. ...
