New Poll - Manga App

I can't enjoy reading on such a small screen. The smallest I can do is a 7 inch screen but even then I usually just use my laptop to read. ...
New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 801 views) Posted: 16d 20h, 27m ago by mysstris in News
I don't dream of the stories I read so I imagine it'd be fun and quite the adventure (for all I know I might do so but just can't remember upon awakening). What you say makes a lot of sense. I can't immerse myself enough in a story to " ...
New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 801 views) Posted: 21d 11h, 1m ago by mysstris in News
This really depends. If it's supposed to be fantasy based then it doesn't matter. If it's set in a modern time and there is no fantasy aspect with no weird plot twist eg basic girl meets boy school plot, then yeah, a slice of life would be more of a fun r ...
New Poll - Pleasure Reading

actually I made the mistake of saying Children of the Mind. I only read up to Xenocide. But I guess I won't know until I read it. I thought Speaker for the Dead and Xenocide were better (especially that twist in Xenocide) than Ender's Game but that may be ...

yeah I'm planning on reading the ender spin offs as soon as I'm done with the ender series. I know Ender's Shadow coincides with Ender's Game so it doesn't matter but I'm eager to find out what's next after Xenoci ...

I understand the feeling of not wanting to waste time but with the internet being so large and there being too many books listed, it might be easier to go to a library since they have a limited selection

Once you do that, go to the section of your interest and scan throug ...

lol I believe that's a school assigned book. At least it was when I was in high school. I never read it though since I wasn't part of that group of classes. ...

Over the summer I found joy in the Ender's Game series by Orson Scott Card but wasn't able to complete the whole thing before returning to college (now my days are filled with unpleasurable but certain interesting readings). Read up to Xenocide. G ...
New Poll - First Fandom
(27 posts, 828 views) Posted: 42d 5h, 8m ago by mysstris in News
Well anime is so easy to get access to since TVs became a household item for over a couple of decades (likely much more). However, it's probable that most of it was dubbed anime.

Anime is my first introduction into the fandom (dragon ball z, sailor moon, ...
New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 1347 views) Posted: 45d 23h, 31m ago by mysstris in News
I whitelist but since I also use aggregate sites like mangafox despite frequent use of batoto, I consider it a necessity.

I especially love it when I'm on official video streaming sites with ads but since I have an ad blocker, I can breeze through without having to se ...
New Poll - After Finishing a Series

You read my mind xD or I read yours. But to say english publisher is excluding other countries so I didn't want to be too specific. ...
New Poll - After Finishing a Series
(23 posts, 652 views) Posted: 53d 5h, 6m ago by mysstris in News
My option isn't here....I hope to find it published in my native language so I can purchase it without difficulty rereading it.

But honestly for most of the options, it does depend on the type of storyline and how much I like the series.

I don't usually hope for an a ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 7759 views) Posted: 63d 21h, 20m ago by mysstris in News
Although I cannot morally agree with a majority of what your stance on the matter is (but given that it sounds like your stance is due to how you view manga as a medium of fantasy and fiction that does not hold influence on your reality, I can understand it only on a ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 7759 views) Posted: 64d 0h, 0m ago by mysstris in News
All of these bother me, whether or not I've read them in manga (but it's in the poll so it exists somewhere in manga realm)

Stockholm syndrome is definitely no joke so I chose that one but sexual assault/harassment/rape portrayed as a joke is just a ...
New Poll - Humor
(16 posts, 714 views) Posted: 69d 22h, 32m ago by mysstris in News
I guess some people are strongly influenced by a manga at that moment to develop the humor from the comedy of the manga (the easiest is perverted comedy-->perverted humor) but most people don't develop their humor from just mangas. ...
New Poll - Humor
(16 posts, 714 views) Posted: 69d 22h, 34m ago by mysstris in News
well it's easy to grasp what perverted humor is (as well as awkward, serious/dark, deadpan,slapstick, sarcastic,witty, and weird) but a few of the options are questionable. ...
New Poll - Humor
(16 posts, 714 views) Posted: 69d 22h, 49m ago by mysstris in News
I kind of get what this poll is asking. However some of the options don't make sense to me. It's hard to grasp what cute, fake, silly, and friendly humor is. I think I'll go for none at all since I'm not one to read comedy mangas often and most ...
New Poll - Favorite Narrative
(13 posts, 538 views) Posted: 78d 4h, 28m ago by mysstris in News
To each their own are a fun read but here is a large representative body in the scanlating world for linear and overall story divided into arcs. Most stories seem to be written that way too and linear is the most conventional story telling method. It's no surprise ...
New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 1816 views) Posted: 85d 8h, 56m ago by mysstris in News
I'm not collector in large volumes of mangas. I just collect mangas I deem worthy and COMPLETED (this is a very important factor) unless the series is dropped due to publisher termination.

Also I'm stingy so I don't like to buy mangas that aren ...
New Poll - Native Language
(37 posts, 1906 views) Posted: 88d 9h, 42m ago by mysstris in News
Fair enough. I've learned something new. People don't think primarily in one language. Thank you for my newly acquired education.

It appears that I should have voted other then based on various posts. ...
New Poll - Native Language
(37 posts, 1906 views) Posted: 92d 3h, 58m ago by mysstris in News
When i think of native language, it's easier for me to define it as the language that one uses when thinking. That or the default definition is usually something along the lines of "the language of you consider you homeland/nation".

Based on the form ...

I guess there is no reason to separate which "english" region. It'd be too tedious. ...
Mangatraders now 100% down, any new info?
(71 posts, 70014 views) Posted: 96d 1h, 33m ago by mysstris in Chatter Box
I'm utterly shocked and upset by the fact. It was the gold mine for manga from the past, manga that is no longer on the web anywhere to download because those scanlators are long gone. I appreciate everything MT has contributed. I didn't care so m ...
New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1926 views) Posted: 96d 1h, 52m ago by mysstris in News
True but at the same time, it's by having read a sizable amount of crap mangas as well that I know what's crap and isn't crap now. Having read so many stories of different qualities help me build up a certain knowledge about the relationship of ...
New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1926 views) Posted: 99d 20h, 59m ago by mysstris in News
Likely within the Professional (so I voted). To say I'm advanced is quite audacious.

I don't have an exact count (list only consists of around 1600--only counted the list for one page of bookmarks and multiplied by number of pages) since I simply use a boo ...
