Well, I'm ok if character is still recognizable, but mangaka shouldn't overdo it. It's not like everyone wears different clothes everyday even in real life, it should really depend on character in question and circumstances... ...

|New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 2149 views) Posted: 78d 21h, 4m ago by Trimutius in News
Well my primary language is Russian, and English is my secondary and I'm fluent. But as it stands having Russian as a primary language is more beneficial for my line of work considering the country where I live (Canada by the way) I prefer to learn Japane ...

|New Poll - Types of Relationships
(25 posts, 1637 views) Posted: 176d 0h, 47m ago by Trimutius in News
Most of my favourite romantic mangas have a single heterosexual couple, and usually something like Couple Growth among categories. Though among my favourite romances I have also harems, love triangles and even one shoujo ai (that one is weird though, w ...

I actually sometimes imagine myself to be immortal evil overlord, who is kind but strict to his followers and subordinates, and ruthless towards enemies, unless they agree to be my subordinates and pass a very hard test of loyalty. By the way all my wifes and truste ...
|New Poll - Long Series

Most of the time I just keep on reading. I like ongoings and sometimes even want for them to go on forever. Though several mangas I kinda stopped reading in the middle because they became boring, but that is only around 20%

Well technically it was several shows that were shown on TV that I watched before going to school when I was 8-10 years old. Then those shows kinda stopped, and then a new channel appeared on TV around 2008 which would show a lot of popular ones, like Gho ...

English! Corrupt Canadian English, that is. While in Europe, I was asked whether I could speak English... while I was speaking English.

I can easily think in both English and Russian (not the mix of 2 but rather separately) since I started to immerse into English area pretty early. And even though Russian is my first language and I studies in school and university in Russian, I was coming to Canada for ...

Well considering that my favourite characters in mangas are usually girl, who I consider to be ideal for me (I will not name them, but they are usually smart and maybe nerdy type of girls and often not main characters) then why not if it involves marrying them and h ...
|New Poll - Fan Service
(37 posts, 3199 views) Posted: 575d 10h, 44m ago by Trimutius in News
I like variety in manga... so an ecchi stuff in generally non-ecchi manga is like a bonus to me... I even increase rating of couple of mangas because of such stuff... Though if manga is extremely ecchi (or even hentai) I like it when mangaka insert a lot of non-sexual s ...
|New Poll - Hentai
(52 posts, 5892 views) Posted: 607d 8h, 8m ago by Trimutius in News
I prefer Borderline H most of the time... Simple ecchi is just stupid. And hentai... well, there are some good hentai mangas, but most of the time it is just sex...
While in Borderline H most of the mangakas would think how to attract reader for more than 1 volume (and b ...

"The original language's dub"
Dubbing refers to creating a new voicetrack DIFFERENT from the original; there is no such thing as an "original dub."

I usually give 6-8.8 points to series.
If series is higher than 8.9 points then I consider it to be very good series. Several of my favourites have 10 points assigned by me.
4.5-6 means that i didn't really like the plot in the series.
below 4.5 means that i consider this se ...
