|New Poll - Self-Control
(31 posts, 830 views) Posted: 41d 19h, 29m ago by That3rdGuy in News
I can usually stop mid-chapter, but I usually finish it and bookmark the next chapter or just bookmark the first page of the chapter I didn't finish. I used to read manga until I was about to pass out. I've pretty much read all the manga I liked and now just wa ...
|New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 1280 views) Posted: 62d 22h, 24m ago by That3rdGuy in News
I like how so many people think they are capable of being a strategist or mastermind. I doubt most of those people have to capacity to be one (at least a villainous one). I seriously hope most of those people picked it just because they liked the choice and not becau ...
|New Poll - Living a Genre
(35 posts, 1358 views) Posted: 83d 19h, 4m ago by That3rdGuy in News
It boggles my mind that harems (along with pedophelia and gender benders) are such a reoccurring theme in manga that it's become it's own genre. The Japanese know so little about relationships that they don't realize a harem is more work ...

Jesus, the people who run this site have no backbone. A single image isn't copyright violation. If you would bother doing even a LITTLE research about fair use, you'd see you're in the right. Or maybe, just maybe, try calling an attorney who spe ...
|New Poll - First Fandom
(27 posts, 1393 views) Posted: 165d 4h, 48m ago by That3rdGuy in News
It's obvious that anime and manga would consist of over 75% of the votes by far. I'd bet that most people were turned on to this, uh, "fandom" (I'd say Japanese-style entertainment, as manhwa and manhua came about after Japan ...
|New Poll - After Finishing a Series
(23 posts, 995 views) Posted: 178d 10h, 40m ago by That3rdGuy in News
Where's the "I look for similar series" choice?? That's what I typically do. I guess look for series by the same author, so long as the author is also the artist. Who doesn't finish series? I can understand certain circumstances (plot ch ...

Wow... I can't fully put into words how perfect your response was! I only wish that people hating on my opinion made even 50% of the impact as the reply you made (maybe I'd actually come back to my old posts). I'm not being sarcastic. ...
|New Poll - Sexism

Oh, this poll pleases me! Before I get into it, I'll just pick the girl solely being a love interest, because it's so common, it's become a necessity. And I hate the cliche.
Let's see... let's start from the top. I'll try to make it short... -is ...

Personally, I had a feeling this was coming ever since Sai asked Jūgo what Sasuke's true intentions were. To me, Sasuke seems like he's the kind of guy who doesn't brag about his talents, but will act like a fool--or even become jealous- ...

|How do you name your characters?
(47 posts, 3808 views) Posted: 218d 22h, 26m 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.

|911 IN NEED OF A REALLY AWESOME ROMANCE MANGA

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 ...
|New Poll - Anime Diverges
(20 posts, 1026 views) Posted: 303d 4h, 16m 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 ...
|New Poll - Bullying
(28 posts, 2366 views) Posted: 538d 19h, 54m 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 ...
