|New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(25 posts, 370 views) Posted: 0d 15h, 19m ago by yarn in News
I guess it just depends. Translation-wise, I hear the most complaints regarding josei. I suppose seinen would be equally hard in that regard. But here, I hear a lot of complaints about shoujo, and I can imagine that's true, with all the vague screentones and spa ...

First of all, you cannot assume that everyone here is from USA. We're not.
Chuang Yi would like to have a word with you.
But seriously, even if you don't live in the US, wouldn't you want people who DO, and who have ac ...

I usually find them REALLY annoying, especially if they're supposed to be cute. Don't get me wrong, I love real-life cute animals. But these guys grate on my nerves.
I vote for #4, since they're tolerable if they actually do something. But if they ...

I would vote for Takuto and Sugata from Star Driver (anime; I think only one chapter of the manga version was ever translated)
And Hakkenden seems pretty steeped in it (at least the anime was; I'm waaaay behind on the manga). ...

I second Eitoku on Pupa. It's got a brother and sister who are abused by their dad.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And then the sister regularly eats him; though it's "consensual."
Another maybe is a oneshot that was printed with Flower in a ...

Print dj's have a goal of being printed, which gives the creators incentive to do a really good job - because if you don't, then they won't sell and you can't recoup your printing costs.

According to the results so far... there are about 3x more open-minded girls than boys.
I voted for "girl who reads both." Not that I particularly seek out GL series, but neither am I avoidant of it, and will read the occasional shoujo-ai. ...

Otomen is a shoujo with a male lead. The guy *pretends* to be a cool guy, which is a cover for his real personality, which loves girly things. He fangirls over anything cute.
The guy in My Little Monster is kind of nutty and expressive, and isn't at all a cool type, ...
