|Your Best Life-Changing Decision
(18 posts, 1220 views) Posted: 14d 7h, 29m ago by HikaruYami in Chatter Box
Hey, on the plus side, necroposting in Chatter Box is way, way less annoying than some other forums (especially "I'm looking for...").
My best life-changing decision was attending MIT. Just finished my Master's there in September 2014! ...

Quote from F_J
I think the hiatus is from Jump, not Oda. The comment (according to Manga Panda's translation) is "We will be on hiatus next issue. We plan to resume the publication with the weekly jump #22-23 double issue." Soooo... don't ...

I don't want Oda to get hospitalized again. He needs to be alive. I wouldn't mind even if he switched to a schedule of one chapter every 2 weeks. ...

|Trans characters ?
(6 posts, 311 views) Posted: 21d 9h, 18m ago by HikaruYami in I'm Looking For...
Sigh, mostly trans characters are treated very poorly in manga. The Japanese primarily think in terms of "okama", which are really very different from western trans individuals. Seeing an actual trans individual being treated properly in a manga is ver ...

My first instinct upon seeing the release this morning was "YES! Since it seems like Viz might not pick up the series permanently, thank god some group decided to pick up this still-young masterpiece!"
But, uhm, they're a brand-new group, this is the ...

Just buy the steam version. Like, yes, it was made to work with a game controller and not a keyboard, but you can plug in xbox controllers to a PC nowadays, so if you have an even remotely performant laptop, you can experience it on a PC without issue, thanks to ...

Quote from chaechaeboi
There is no point. Potentially one would skewing the results by voting more than once. I'm not even sure why I do it. Perhaps I lack impulse control. I guess it is kind of fun as well.
Some people want to feel like they are part of the " ...

Quote from Baalzebup
Hmm.. Dragon's Dogma. Yeah, made in Japan and all, but it is much more in line with western sandboxes like Skyrim. Now, there is an actual level cap and a stat cap brought by said level cap and you will never just oneshot the end bos ...

Talk about a necrobump.
Welp, while we are at it, might as well join.
Did you even read the thread? This last necrobump was barely more than a year. The original necrobump in this thread was over six years (from 2007 to 2013). Now that' ...

The fully-specc'd-out Lenovo Y50 IdeaPad has proven to be an amazing system for me. Ultra-HD graphics (2160p), and a graphics card that can drive high-end games with no frame lag even at that resolution. The network card also leaves nothing to be des ...

Unfortunately, the raw isn't floating around in full yet (and the spoilers don't include that particular page), but two separate translators made that translation, and a number is really hard to translate wrong. I imagine it was Kishimoto's mistake. ...

Of those 75 people using "other", I would bet money than at least 70 of them are running ChromeOS, 3 or so are running OS/2 or its slightly more modern variant, eComStation, and the last stragglers, _if there are any_, are running their own homebrew ...

Seo is a genius.
Don't get me wrong, I hate him, I'm sad as fuck right now, but he is a *genius*. If he can keep up this level of emotional impact, this will be my favorite non-battle manga ever. ...

I mean, the first Japanese TV show I enjoyed was undoubtedly Speed Racer (the dub of Mach GoGoGo), which was still having re-runs from the 70s when I was a very young child (I was born in 1991).
The first thing that got me _really into_ Japanese media was Pok ...

Battered wife... Yeah that is so true and guess what: IT'S NOT LOVE SAKURA!! I'm not giving up on her yet though. I still believe in a NaruSaku ending. Sasuke just needs to die, but I doubt Kishi has the guts to do it. Oh well, I' ...
