|Josei/Seinen romance manga with smart/cold female lead.
(7 posts, 1632 views) Posted: 506d 17h, 15m ago by yarn in I'm Looking For...
Kimi Wa Pet (Tramps Like Us) - Well-off journalist 'adopts' a talented but homeless dancer. The other love interest is a guy from her workplace.
I could give you some with just the "smart/cold female lead" but I'm a little confused if ...
|New Poll - Collector
(39 posts, 3002 views) Posted: 726d 12h, 4m ago by yarn in News
That's horrible! I know of some people who only buy digital manga because they've had their home burn down and lost their collection - they don't want to go through that again. Having your parent do that is extra harsh. ...
|New Poll - Collector
(39 posts, 3002 views) Posted: 726d 12h, 7m ago by yarn in News
I assume it's "What would you collect that you already don't." I collect manga already, of course, and dabble in figures. I voted for cels, because if money were no object, I'd LOVE to collect anime cels. They're one-of-a-kin ...

I do have a couple of official apps on my phone, but honestly I usually don't like to bother with trying to read on a tiny screen. ...
|New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 3966 views) Posted: 786d 22h, 14m ago by yarn in News
I do use it, but only on sites I don't like - ad revenue is what keeps a lot of sites going, and helps give cash to content creators so they can keep making cool stuff. ...
|Suggest a dark shoujo/ josei
(8 posts, 1086 views) Posted: 800d 5h, 13m ago by yarn in I'm Looking For...
Everything by Yuki Kaori, probably anything by Mihara Mitsukazu (I've read DOLL, Embalmer, and Dokuhime, all are dark/gothic). Also recommend Petshop of Horrors. ...
|New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 17172 views) Posted: 803d 22h, 26m ago by yarn in News
My least favorite is the scenario where a girl tries to thank a guy for helping her by offering to have sex with him. It happens all the time in manga. I've never heard of a real girl considering sex to be a thank-you gift.
Also, since you guys like talking about " ...
|New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 4797 views) Posted: 825d 13h, 49m ago by yarn in News
I probably buy an average of 2-3 new manga volumes per month, and used manga whenever I see something I like that's a good deal. I probably have about 300 volumes by now. I don't buy a whole lot digitally because I have yet to see an official elec ...
|New Poll - Sailor Moon
(37 posts, 3186 views) Posted: 929d 12h, 19m ago by yarn in News
I picked "never watched," which isn't 100% accurate, because I did watch SOME. Just not enough to pick a character I liked. ...
|Life Insurance for 20s-30s? Please helpp!
(15 posts, 881 views) Posted: 976d 20h, 26m ago by yarn in Chatter Box
1) Do you have life insurance and why?
No - I'm self-employed and am not getting enough income yet to justify the cost.
2) What would make you want to get life insurance?
If I had a dependent, or some great cause that I thought would benefit from the payou ...
|How do you pronounce the title?
(47 posts, 8659 views) Posted: 999d 11h, 54m ago by yarn in Magi
Guys, guys, guys, you're coming at this all wrong.
The common English pronunciation is moot, since it isn't an English word in the first place.
"Magus" (the singular Latin form) is a word meaning "magician" or "sorcerer." ...

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, 3591 views) Posted: 1091d 14h, 7m 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 ...

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, 3879 views) Posted: 1118d 15h, 52m 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 ...
(45 posts, 16866 views) Posted: 1134d 19h, 46m ago by yarn in I'm Looking For...
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). ...
|New Poll - Scanlation Anger

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 ...

The lead uses hairs to determine things about a person, and to engage special abilities.
|shoujo/josei with an abused male?
(14 posts, 8415 views) Posted: 1155d 16h, 10m 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 ...

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