New Poll - Manga Magazines
(20 posts, 898 views) Posted: 232d 20h, 10m ago by sophie0 in News
I suscribe to one magazine because I don't want to wait for the tankobon, and I always buy two BL anthologies. That way I also get to read stories I wuldn't necessarily try out as a tankobon.
If there was a simple way to buy them digitally, I might buy mo ...
New Poll - Bust

I wish I could "like" or "upvote" your comments. Couldn't agree more with what you're saying. ...
New Poll - Bust

Also it wouldn't really make things any better (and neither penis or nut size discussions are really the same as talking about women's breats is - most importantly, it's probaly more something men use to judge each other, and not something wo ...
New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 9144 views) Posted: 367d 19h, 24m ago by sophie0 in News
I could be wrong, but I think the "then go ahead and learn Japanese reaction" is targeted at people who are annoyed because other people - who invested the time to learn Japanese and make scanlations available- aren't doing things the way th ...
New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 9144 views) Posted: 367d 19h, 29m ago by sophie0 in News
I disagree, I think if all you want to do is read in that language, self-study is definitely an option. It's a lot of work, sure, but it's not impossible.
And while I don't think people who read scanlations should just learn Japanese, I agree that if they have tim ...
New Poll - Manga vs Others
(33 posts, 2477 views) Posted: 509d 1h, 59m ago by sophie0 in News
I prefer manga at the moment. Before I started reading manga I read a lot of American comics - superhero comics mostly, but Vertigo and similar stuff as well. There are some good ones out there, but right now I am not really interested in American comics. A lo ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 8376 views) Posted: 680d 20h, 31m ago by sophie0 in News
I would argue there is a difference between fan translation and official ones, though. Not necessarily in quality, but as they are done for fans by fans, there are a lot of things you can pretty much assume about your readers and what they know, something the trans ...
New Poll - Manga Price
(49 posts, 4609 views) Posted: 690d 23h, 17m ago by sophie0 in News
Here in Germany one volume costs between 6 and 7 average (although they are getting more expensive due to higher production costs). I think that's an okay price. English and Japanese manga are more expensive, in the case of Japanese manga due ...
Vegetarianism

Quote
a true vegan diet is expensive- you HAVE to be relatively well off in order to be a vegan- its as simple as that.


That is simply not true. Yes, if you want to eat these fake steaks and whatever - then it's true that it's more expensive. But if you avoid p ...

Anime openings (and endings, I guess):

- occasionally watch them
- only watch them if I like them
- watch them once, then always skip

New Poll - Unwanted Pairing
(38 posts, 4510 views) Posted: 757d 22h, 32m ago by sophie0 in News
Well, with most of the manga I read it's pretty much obvious who the main pairing's going to be, so it isn't that much of an issue. But there have been two cases I can remember where the author's choice really pissed me off. (When a ma ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 769d 10h, 36m ago by sophie0 in News
The problem here is that most people who read the scanlations usually wouldn't buy the manga in the original Japanese anyway, *because they wouldn't understand it*. That is something a lot of people seem to forget. So, rather than taking away sales ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 769d 19h, 32m ago by sophie0 in News
I think a lot of people are misunderstanding the question. There actually is a difference between the morality/immorality of scanlating and of *reading* said scanlations.

If you assume that the scanlation isn't done for profit and not against the expressed wishe ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 774d 20h, 18m ago by sophie0 in News
Tell me about it. I actually ended up ordering a Nook because from the sound of it it was a good ereader for reading manga. Since I don't live in the US, I imported it, set it up to buy and download some manga - only to discover since I don't live in the US ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 774d 23h, 16m ago by sophie0 in News
Actually, I think the opposite is the case. In my country, on the publisher's message boards there are threads dedicated to "which manga would you like us to publish", and I doubt they think their readers are basing their decisions on wikipedia entri ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 775d 0h, 23m ago by sophie0 in News
Well, no - sorry, but that reasoning is faulty. Because in this case you're looking at what you are doing with the scanlations. That has nothing to do with whether scanlations itself are morally wrong or not.

What is a scanlation? Well, people take someone else' ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9363 views) Posted: 775d 8h, 50m ago by sophie0 in News
I voted "no", but I would like to add the caveat, "as long as it isn't for profit".

As for reading and downloading and pirating stuff, I'd say it isn't wrong if there isn't any other option. Like, if I don't have the option ...
New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 3114 views) Posted: 795d 9h, 37m ago by sophie0 in News
Whether or not I can relate to a series usually has to do with the characters, so that's what I voted for. Good characterization can make up for a lot of things - as long as I care about the characters, the rest doesn't matter too much, although a good ...
