|New Poll - Fan Service

Which do I choose for "mildly annoying"? Saying I don't like it at all seems a bit strong. ...
|New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 1190 views) Posted: 90d 2h, 47m 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 ...

Quote from soyokaze
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 ...
|Crunchyroll to publish Kodansha series

I'm going to try out the manga subscription once my current anime subscription expires (it seems they don't let you "stack" plans, for some mysterious reason ) ...

Look up "suspension of disbelief." Apparently it's not working on you. ...
|New Poll - Mascot Characters
(39 posts, 1647 views) Posted: 117d 4h, 32m ago by yarn in News
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). ...

The "No release in the last 2 years" is what makes me do the Darth Vader scream of "NOOOOOO!!!!"
A close second is when a group who says they desperately need more members simultaneously says they're going to take on ...

Cuticle Tantei Inaba
The lead uses hairs to determine things about a person, and to engage special abilities.
|shoujo/josei with an abused male?
(10 posts, 1893 views) Posted: 154d 4h, 50m ago by yarn in Shoujo/Josei
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 ...

"The original language's dub"
Dubbing refers to creating a new voicetrack DIFFERENT from the original; there is no such thing as an "original dub." ...

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.
When you put something on the internet to share with the ...

Quote from Kiks
I guess so, the only problem is that I've never ever heard of guys going mad over yuri or such things, but girls.....well let's just say girls go a bit too crazy XD
That's because guys have hardcore ecchi and hentai and lolicon to go ...
|New Poll - Same-Sex Romances
(67 posts, 3921 views) Posted: 201d 6h, 51m ago by yarn in News
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. ...
|A "Thinking" manga
(15 posts, 950 views) Posted: 204d 11h, 40m ago by yarn in I'm Looking For...
Pandora Hearts is my favorite psychological mystery manga. It's one of those you have to keep re-reading if you want things to continue to make sense. In other words you HAVE to love complicated mysteries to tolerate reading it, since that's one ...

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, ...
