|How do you name your characters?
(45 posts, 3257 views) Posted: 7d 14h, 15m ago by That3rdGuy in Games
I rarely play any games, let alone ones that allow you to name your character. I typically go for random, so long as it's somewhat fitting. The last game I made good names for was a text-based MMORPG (called Dragon Realms) over 15 years ago

I definitely second Dorohedoro.
It's funny because the category is call "black humor" for some reason, even though the term is dark humor. Black humor sounds like it'd be jokes that black people would enjoy more th ...

Well, I've been reading manga for about 4 years now... I'm somewhere between the higher end of "Casual reader" and the lower end of "Rookie." It's only that high because I'm including manga that I only read a ...

so many mangas repeat the same stupid cliches over and over.

I doubt you'll like these, but I'll try anyways.
Bit more of a GUROmance, with the girl killing people and all... still an awesome and heartbreaking read.
Chobits was a decent read as well, though I didn't care much for the dynamics of their r ...

Quote from haohao229900
Hm, I can't think of any sad or tearjerker-type moments. Typically, stories about one or more sexual deviants don't have many sad parts. Not to say it's not a good read, because it' ...

what i dislike about a lot of shounen like naruto and one piece is page upon page of boring fighting scenes... how about some more STORY?
That's because you're reading shounen lol. Seinen is apparently what you're look ...

Does it blow my mind?
No, because I'm not a simpleton who finds small connects of children's movies so much as noteworthy. Wow, the same vehicle appears in several movies and there is a ball and lamp which appear often as well! Holy shit, they of ...

(20 posts, 565 views) Posted: 91d 20h, 6m ago by That3rdGuy in News
I fucking hate it when this happens. It occurred with Desert Punk and Elfen Lied. Its bullshit when they change the story to meet the generic TV program design or to satisfy the censors. I only watch those animes if I haven't reached that point in the manga or ...

Everyone is replaceable?? Even your loved ones?? You have a warped mind my friend. You definitely need to mature. I truly hope you change your views.
Living forever is a curse, BTW. First two options are best. ...

WTF is a drama cd? If it's just some crap where people are recorded trying to act, we kinda of got out of that around the 1950's radio shows.
If I had an original story to write, I'd use the medium of a book. Comics are for kids, same goes for m ...

(28 posts, 1852 views) Posted: 327d 11h, 43m ago by That3rdGuy in News
It's unrealistic and/or cliche in many series, but it almost always adds to the character development. Therefore, I feel it has a place in manga. It happens to many people every day and usually affects the way people act. Just because some people find it unp ...

The art of hating!
I remember there was this guy who lived next to me and made a LOT of money selling marijuana. While he caused no problems (in fact, much of the profit went towards the community and I lived in a legal state), I still told the police when he got a ne ...

Usually I don't care much about how things are categorized, but this is one I actually have an opinion about.
I strongly agree with somemango. I've been surfing anime/manga themed forums for a while (mostly to troll, to be honest) and have seen peop ...

It's a tie between the quiet, good-looking one and the scheming plotter because those are the ones I can see myself as and relate to the most. I really don't like those from shounen because they're usually have exaggerated personalities. Yup.. ...
|New Poll - Exercise
(30 posts, 2146 views) Posted: 383d 15h, 24m ago by That3rdGuy in News
Yes. Just because one runs errands while doing it doesn't make it not count. It's just not exercising for the sake of exercising. If anything, it's smarter (IMO) to do something meaningful while exercising so you don't give up on it. ...

Sometimes... usually only if I'm actually working (like when I do construction). Otherwise, I really don't need it. Well, I do, but it's not like I'm overweight. I'm just not in shape, either. My metabolism works really well even though I' ...

FREE! I'm exclusively a pirate and leecher. The mangaka can eat it.
Seriously, though, I have no clue. I wouldn't be caught dead buying something I could get for free online. Even if I wasn't woefully poor (because all my extra money goes to w ...

(31 posts, 2109 views) Posted: 389d 2h, 45m ago by That3rdGuy in News
I'll take anything no matter how bad so long as I find it entertaining. For example, the original Onepunch Man (not the ones currently being released) has absolutely terrible art, but I still read it. I guess I do like rough artwork, like Alice in Hell and Dorohedoro, bu ...

I voted no, but I've went there before learning about manga. It's basically the reason I got into manga since some kid turned me on to it.
Why would it effect somebody? Does a, say, Italian who reads western comics want to visit the States because he ...
|New Poll - Vehicle

Seeing as you can pick anything, I'd have to say my choice is either a unicycle, a motorized wheelchair (like Hoveround), or a Segway.
Just kidding. I'd definitely use a beer bike and be shitfaced all day, every day, until I drunkenly fall off in ...
|New Poll - Preferred Setting
(21 posts, 1352 views) Posted: 418d 8h, 34m ago by That3rdGuy in News
Futuristic Earth with a post-apocalyptic theme. Something like Desert Punk and Alice in Hell. I like deserts and ruins. MC must be an antihero. Don't care about the location. Mercenaries are always good, too. Must be a seinen. Struggling to make a living while ...
