|What's wrong with mangafox?
(16 posts, 576 views) Posted: 0d 18h, 33m ago by HikaruYami in Manga General
Huh, this is interesting. Mangafox has always been a big target of official distributors, but I'm really surprised that this time they managed to cut the US off from *every* Japanese series.
It would be interesting to see some of this success against mangahere a ...
|Worst Doctor's Visit?
(7 posts, 185 views) Posted: 22d 14h, 57m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
When I was 19, I went to a Doctor for simple bloodwork and was told that a specific hormone issue meant I probably had a tumor in my head.
Then the best Doctor's visit I've ever had was when they told me that they got the MRI results and that I didn' ...

|Zombie Outbreak - You're infected
(22 posts, 748 views) Posted: 24d 4h, 57m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
These options are too limited. The way I see it, I have two _real_ options:
1) Search for the cure
or, if it has been proven scientifically impossible to reverse the infection,
2) Begin killing/biting everyone else immediately, before my mind is even taken over
If I'm g ...

Oh, lambchopsil. So mature This is why I've loved your comments ever since your AQS days when I was reading Negima. (actually not sarcasm, aside from the maturity remark. I think your personality is great) ...
|Is Borderline Hentai really Borderline?
(27 posts, 3501 views) Posted: 90d 22h, 7m ago by HikaruYami in Manga General
Quote from kanari-chan
Im with you, not sure why female parts are so acceptable.
Despite social expectations, breasts are not, in fact, sexual organs. They evolved to provide milk for babies. The reason bras originally existed is for support, not for covering. Thus, ...
|English Scanlators Only
(19 posts, 1136 views) Posted: 91d 1h, 11m ago by HikaruYami in News
The *really* funny part is that people that understand sufficient English will read your post's title, see "English Scanlators Only", and will think that the post itself is targeted only towards English Scanlators, and subsequently think they don't ha ...

I can think of like a billion h-manga that take place in a single house between two people. Do you want to exclude h-manga? Or alternatively, do you want the manga to be some minimal length (like at least a whole volume)? ...

This. So hard this.

(6 posts, 587 views) Posted: 146d 23h, 54m ago by HikaruYami in Manga General
Quote from mybackhurtz
No, even the manga has a rapidly-growing fanbase, thanks to the popularity of the anime. Since the anime started, it even got popular enough for mangastream to start scanlating it.
So if we' ...

This fight is like endless 8. The same thing happens in the last 8 chapters
Would people stop fucking referencing endless 8 like they know their shit? In the original light novel, endless 8 took ONE CHAPTER, and the author didn't walk ...

My parents never shared my interests at all, but they never discouraged me from reading manga. I always found my schoolwork trivial up through high school (that stopped in college because I went to MIT), so my parents never cared what I did in my free time, as ...

(11 posts, 745 views) Posted: 157d 11h, 18m ago by HikaruYami in Recruitment
You say fluent, but any group that hires you to translate to English needs a proofreader, guaranteed. Your English may be at an advanced conversational level, but anyone that makes that many grammatical errors in one post can't be considered "flu ...

Quote from Baalzebup
Hah, I actually heard about this fad about two months ago and I've been laughing about it ever since. By what I gather, this is just another made-up definition of supposed female beauty basically used in hen-fights and contests of one-upp ...
|How do you pronounce the title?
(47 posts, 2591 views) Posted: 157d 17h, 44m ago by HikaruYami in Magi
Why is this even a poll? There is one objectively correct pronunciation, and it's the katakana that's attached in Japanese.
マギ is "mah-gi". End of discussion.
If you were asking about the word as it appears elsewhere in the e ...

|Will world peace ever be achieved?
(32 posts, 1134 views) Posted: 161d 19h, 20m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
No, the only chance at true peace for the world is for all humans to die. Then at least less-sentient animals can live in relative peace.
Banding together against some alien force isn't world peace either. That's just interplanetary war. "The World" ...
|What's Your Native Language?
(137 posts, 5717 views) Posted: 168d 4h, 47m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
Boring guy here--I'm an American, native language is English.
Seeing all of these people saying that English isn't their native language makes me feel a lot better about the fact that mangaupdates' forums are riddled with terrible spelling and gra ...

It's popular, but if you ever plan to join the fanbase, be prepared for pages upon pages of people whining about how the manga-ka hasn't written a reasonable fight in like five years. ...
