New Poll - Dropping a Series
(25 posts, 2375 views) Posted: 200d 14h, 35m ago by Horn in News
There can be several things, however there's one thing for me personally that stands out from the rest - poor pacing. Slow pacing, in particular. It's not as prevalent in manga though, as I can recall; the only radical example I can think of right now is Init ...
New Poll - Physical Manga

I picked the second highest option. Last time I counted I had a bit above 300 volumes, mixed English and Swedish, so prolly a bit more now. It has slowed down considerably though, so no, I'm not quite collector material, I don't think. ...
New Poll - Cosplay Opposites
(22 posts, 1532 views) Posted: 570d 6h, 45m ago by Horn in News
That'd be my answer too. I don't cosplay, but if I did (it would be funny), I'd likely still stick to my gender.

Kinda feels like the options here are a little too limited. ...
New Poll - Visiting Japan

Oh my god, how do you expect me to choose just one >_< ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 10914 views) Posted: 1078d 4h, 1m ago by Horn in News
And as for the honorifics - in my opinion they convey a lot of information about the relationships that's REALLY difficult to capture otherwise.

"A lot of" feels exaggerated. I agree that it adds some flavor to the text, but I honestly don' ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 10914 views) Posted: 1086d 3h, 44m ago by Horn in News
An occasional error is fine; noticeable, but fine. Everybody makes mistakes. I consider myself somewhat anal when it comes to QCing, at least spelling-wise, but I've let some really embarrassing mistakes slip. Consistently, though, I'd really prefer if th ...
New Poll - Author Pet Peeve
(53 posts, 5516 views) Posted: 1261d 5h, 26m ago by Horn in News
I can deal with most of this. Killing off the main character? That takes some balls on the author's side; I actually think it usually ups the drama pretty well. Dividing the plot between characters? Good for variation. No plot to speak of? Not necessarily a problem ...
New Poll - Sports
(78 posts, 8588 views) Posted: 1295d 5h, 22m ago by Horn in News
Honestly, I don't quite understand why so many picked Martial Arts when there are so many of those series already. I want to see something obscure made into a manga, something I don't know a lot my vote went to cricket. ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 155 - Choosing an Honorific
(50 posts, 4253 views) Posted: 1500d 9h, 25m ago by Horn in Chatter Box
Quote from Glottalstop
If I had to choose, "-sensei" would be OK, but it's a pity that "-dono" is missing, even though it might not be in use nowadays.

Heh, I also wanted -dono. I picked -sama though. I dunno, it'd feel like an ego boos ...
