New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 13111 views) Posted: 431d 22h, 0m ago by Jack_T in News
I feel like most of these need a popular manga example. I haven't seen most of these so I can't say they annoy me, its not really a trope if it doesnt exist in any popular series (and unpopular ones are unpopular for a reason).

This poll is insanely vague ...
New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 4036 views) Posted: 647d 21h, 29m ago by Jack_T in News
my three most favorite mangas take place in terrifying worlds.

Berserk, Gantz, and Akira. None of those contain a world that is less than horrific. ...
New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(51 posts, 6409 views) Posted: 1010d 22h, 35m ago by Jack_T in News
Both the opening and ending tend to be the weakest parts of an anime.

This is why I don't really watch anime anymore. ...
Tokyopop is back

I would very much like it if they would put out the last two volumes of future diary as well. ...
New Poll - Amount of Ecchi
(79 posts, 11850 views) Posted: 1313d 18h, 37m ago by Jack_T in News
where's the "I don't care how much ecchi there is in a series (as long as it is a good series)" option? ...
New Poll - Cheaper Paper
(57 posts, 5875 views) Posted: 1341d 19h, 40m ago by Jack_T in News
I bought claymore because it used to be 7.99 rather than 9.99 (the usual price)

Now my favorite series like berserk or gantz are anywhere between 12.99 and 14.99

I tend to not buy much manga outside of the ones I like. Never anything new, it is way too expensive. ...
New Poll - Quitting Manga
(23 posts, 2132 views) Posted: 1366d 11h, 49m ago by Jack_T in News
Half a decade ago I read so much manga it was crazy, it was like all I read and all I spent my free time doing.

Now I buy like three series and I barely read any scans (I read about two or three that don't come to america)

I still like manga its just that I find myse ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 118 - Manga Deprivation
(38 posts, 4110 views) Posted: 1810d 11h, 50m ago by Jack_T in Chatter Box
It is funny being asked this now in a poll.

If I was asked last year my answer would have been drastically different. It also would have differed greatly the year before that.

At this point I've mostly lost interest in manga. I use this sight to keep tabs on my favorites ...
New Poll - Humans at the Top
(59 posts, 3212 views) Posted: 1901d 13h, 2m ago by Jack_T in News
I think the only time I've ever had an issue with translations from a publisher is that some decide to censor the book. It not only affects dialogue but also the art, thus hitting it with a two punch knock out for ruining a potentially good book.

Outside of that I hardly n ...

I started reading manga about six years ago.

I'm glad you've been around from then to now.

Thanks for all the help/information.

I am very grateful. ...
The Situation of Manga Hosting
(122 posts, 9285 views) Posted: 1950d 11h, 32m ago by Jack_T in News
ten dollars is the norm but the series I read are even more expensive. Berserk is now $15 a volume and Gantz is $13 so is Biomega and Future Diary is 11. I've also noticed a trend of increasing prices to use again as an example berserk was 14 another is C ...

I agree with the person who said the dialogue between tae and kurono is getting lame. Everytime something happens to them its always the same yelling back and forth even when they aren't anywhere near in earshot of each other.

I'm kind of hoping ...

I have had BU set as my homepage for the past two years. This is a great site and I hope it stays forever, I'm looking forward to when you hit 2 billion (I think it'll take less than six years)

Anyway Congratulations.

New Poll - Doujinshi
(10 posts, 381 views) Posted: 2140d 20h, 0m ago by Jack_T in News
Same here only h doujin for me. Those are great. outside of the h stuff there arent any doujins based on my favorite series (Gantz, Berserk, Akira). If there are any doujins on those series I'd be more than happy to read them but sadly there arent any that I' ...
Berserk 2009

I still like berserk, I've been getting the manga as it's been released in the U.S. but soon they're going to catch up. I just picked up volume 32 and 33 comes out in february.

volume 34 will probably be out by april or may and then I'm in for a l ...

crap, i meant the other way around

There are right to left comics!?!?!

Also I can't honestly answer this.

and my manga right to left

that isn't an option so I guess I can't vote. ...

New Poll - Manga Comics?
(29 posts, 1049 views) Posted: 2173d 13h, 51m ago by Jack_T in News
I actually enjoy reading comics and manga and in a sense manga is just a Japanese comic.

In fact when I'm trying to explain manga to people who don't understand I have to use the word comic in order to explain it.

I own a ton of manga, just as much ...

New Poll - Best Seinen
(66 posts, 3817 views) Posted: 2265d 16h, 3m ago by Jack_T in News
huh? I read the first volume, I didnt see anything that looked much like a seinen manga.

Anyway my three all time favorite series are all seinen and its a surprise they're not up there as well. Berserk, Gantz, and Akira.

As you can tell its no real surprise I voted f ...
Who's Fighting Skills Would You Like to Have?
(13 posts, 2707 views) Posted: 2357d 12h, 31m ago by Jack_T in Tenjou Tenge
Sugano just for the fact that not only does his uh... fighting skills involve him not fighting but often get him with many other women. I mean he's the weakest in the club but the strongest (spoilers) Shin gets cheated on and then dies

I'd rather been an assha ...
Organising your music...

I store stuff on my computer but a ton of the stuff I like to listen to is from underground bands who would be impossible to locate on the internet (not that you should dl any non-famous bands albums anyway). So because of that I also have to keep a large library of C ...

I've been trying to figure out if tokyopop dropped blood sucker. but to stay on topic I refuse to read violated (censored) series (like tenjho tenge being the most extreme example i can think of).

I mean i keep up with scanlators when they release stuff but read ...
