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

Don't speak slang while in non-english speaking country, use something simple in Europe unless you are ...
New Poll - Native Language
(37 posts, 1157 views) Posted: 29d 22h, 37m ago by Trimutius in News
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 ...
New Poll - Native Language
(37 posts, 1157 views) Posted: 30d 12h, 22m ago by Trimutius in News
I'm Russian, though I moved to Canada when I was 23. I'm pretty surprised that currently Slavic languages are first after English, though might be time difference, lets see results in a week. ...
New Poll - Mediums
(27 posts, 731 views) Posted: 148d 21h, 39m ago by Trimutius in News
I prefer the original, no matter what medium it is. By original I mean medium on which it appeared first. But overall I enjoy Novels the most, they are the most detailed, and I like details. ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2272 views) Posted: 219d 8h, 21m ago by Trimutius in News
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, 2405 views) Posted: 261d 3h, 53m 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, 4341 views) Posted: 293d 1h, 17m 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 ...

According to my Complete list it is 405... And i don't read doujinshies... And i don't think i missed anything because I always mark them as complete right after finishing... So 405 it is... Though it may increase a bit during the week, but i will not reach 500 tha ...
New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 1903 views) Posted: 351d 4h, 53m ago by Trimutius in News
Compared to how I was bullied until 9th grade back in Russia, bullying in manga seems cliche and boring. I went for cliche part when voting. ...
New Poll - Foreign Films

Quote from yarn
"The original language's dub"

confused ?

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

Of course there is. Actually film makers not so often use sound ...
New Poll - Foreign Films
(40 posts, 2503 views) Posted: 365d 12h, 34m ago by Trimutius in News
I don't know what to answer I speak fluently 2 languages which is Russian and English, so I usually watch either english dub or russian dub (whichever is easier to get) but "any dub that i understand" is not a choice there... ...
New Poll - Preferred Setting
(21 posts, 1383 views) Posted: 443d 9h, 21m ago by Trimutius in News
If it was me I would say that the setting is closer to Futuristic Earth-like with Fantasy mixed in...
I have chosen futuristic, because that is closer to what I actually want... ...
Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 8634 views) Posted: 489d 23h, 9m ago by Trimutius in News
Well i try to visit scanlators whose manga i want to read. I do read on aggregators like Batoto as well, because scanlators often link to Batoto, MangaInn or MangaPanda. I do visit mangafox, but if i see new release there, first thing i do is visit scanlators site. Baka up ...
New Poll - Death of the MC
(35 posts, 2736 views) Posted: 492d 6h, 5m ago by Trimutius in News
If main character has to be dead, then I prefer him/her to be the ghost from the very start (dead long before first chapter of the series) ...
New Poll - Rating Series
(35 posts, 2532 views) Posted: 506d 2h, 59m ago by Trimutius in News
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 ...
New Poll - Living in Japan
(48 posts, 4196 views) Posted: 534d 11h, 26m ago by Trimutius in News
I would certainly visit Japan often, but I'm satisfied with life in Canada... And I know that tourism and living permanently is very different things... ...
New Poll - Gender Bender in Real Life 2
(57 posts, 5602 views) Posted: 541d 8h, 18m ago by Trimutius in News
Well I'm a guy, and yes I would like to experience gender-swap. But one condition, I must become genuine female. If I won't be able to have kids there is no point...

And this is optional but would be really nice to have. Marry a prince and become a princes ...
MangaUpdates goes Mobile
(64 posts, 6426 views) Posted: 587d 0h, 1m ago by Trimutius in News
Now a second question...
Why it doesn't allow me to increase chapters past the releases available? For example some releases are posted late (or never posted because not accepted by policies of mangaupdates) or some of the mangas I read not in Eng ...

New Poll - Author Pet Peeve
(53 posts, 4066 views) Posted: 828d 5h, 41m ago by Trimutius in News
Actually i have chosen "Discontinue the series (or hiatus)" but for me it's even broader, I just hate it when manga ends (at all) of course I hate rushed endings even more but the thing is I always want continuation. I think hiatus is better then ending ...
