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, 2669 views) Posted: 3d 23h, 49m 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
(18 posts, 593 views) Posted: 4d 2h, 54m 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 ...

... no, you guys, the release cycle doesn't start January 1st. It starts next Monday, with the chapters that were already released by mangastream &c this past week. One Piece returns next week.

(11 posts, 514 views) Posted: 56d 4h, 46m ago by HikaruYami in I'm Looking For...
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)? ...

Quote from ImaginaryWishes
This. So hard this.
He is super overpowered, super nonchalant... even when he gets serious, it's not because he's having trouble with an enemy; it's entirely because something important has been sai ...
|What is the fastest growing manga?
(6 posts, 466 views) Posted: 60d 1h, 37m 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' ...
|Jumping the Shark-Hajime no Ippo

Quote from Mushroomtea
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 ...
|Hire me [JP,CH.KR Translator and other positions]
(11 posts, 600 views) Posted: 70d 13h, 0m 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 ...
|Thoughts about the "thigh gap" fad
(21 posts, 1444 views) Posted: 70d 18h, 59m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
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?
(46 posts, 2021 views) Posted: 70d 19h, 27m 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, 935 views) Posted: 74d 21h, 3m 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?
(123 posts, 4194 views) Posted: 81d 6h, 30m 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 ...

Quote from ShinyMew
I second The Devil King is Bored
(the first part is mainly jokes, but it kinda has a plot (with recurring characters)).
Also...I might get hated for this...but Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo

Quote from 狂気
Five million years?! Ohnoes! What do we do then?!
If scientists would just hurry up and make us immortal already....
In seriousness, if immortality never happens, cloning is trivial in this day and age. If you care about the species staying ...
|Is Hajime no Ippo good if I hate boxing?
(7 posts, 425 views) Posted: 96d 5h, 55m ago by HikaruYami in Hajime no Ippo
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. ...

|FF14 Are you playing it?
(6 posts, 243 views) Posted: 104d 0h, 15m ago by HikaruYami in Games
14, like 11, is an MMO. It's not your standard FF, and it's certainly not something anyone will ever play on a smartphone. ...
|Hiatus?! omg... what?
(5 posts, 761 views) Posted: 104d 1h, 20m ago by HikaruYami in Bleach
Bleach hasn't even gone as long as Naruto or One Piece.... How is it "that one" manga? It's been organized into pretty clear story arcs from the beginning, so it had to end with one of them /eventually/.
If you really want "that one" ...
