|Series that just by reading their summaries became completely unappealing to you
(22 posts, 3351 views) Posted: 2239d 4h, 29m ago by Romashk in Manga General
I've read a couple of series, that were discontinued by a group, and translated by individuals who have less than average ch/jp skills. That kind of work makes me drop the series, even though I was in love with it previously. So I usually skip series with summa ...

I think censoring is more apropriate. Loli-Hentai manga is a problem and the less popular it gets, the better, Regular manga sould stay, but be limitted to 18+ or smthn.
This is an information site. And cutting out a chunk of information isn't right. imho ...

If it's a good manga I'd reread it... But nowadays I don't have the time(cuz most of my favs are 20 something vol's long), so I usually read the parts I liked most. ...

(305 posts, 42759 views) Posted: 2655d 21h, 4m ago by Romashk in Adult (18+)
I used to hide it in a folder of another manga, that my brother never wants to read. Now I don't hide it but I keep it archived on an external drive... It's a pain to download it again if something happens... ...
|Worst hentai cliche
(39 posts, 10079 views) Posted: 2655d 21h, 12m ago by Romashk in Adult (18+)
they get raped and they like it... I find it annoying sometimes. And there were shoujo and hentai manga I read, when they fall in love with the rapist. It's a fantasy, I know, but ... not mine, I guess.
My favorite moment in the "Take on me" hentai manga ...
|Site Poll - Chat Box 75 - Anime Adaptations
(22 posts, 2832 views) Posted: 2655d 21h, 27m ago by Romashk in Chatter Box
Call me naive, but I wish that authors, in the process of reviewing their manga(to make the script for anime), would actually take time to find out what readers want(ed) to see in the story and not just follow popularity trends. Maybe half of the butchered stories out t ...
|do you think that naru's twin brother the one appearing in mai's dreams?
(6 posts, 3033 views) Posted: 2697d 18h, 52m ago by Romashk in Ghost Hunt
He warned her of dangers, and shared his knowledge and, I think, he was the one who awoke her dormant powers. So I thought she made her guardian to be in the form she likes(smilling Naru ). But when he said that he is only a guide, I began to wonder- "wh ...
(12 posts, 12024 views) Posted: 2733d 7h, 14m ago by Romashk in Basara
I can't ask for better. Somewhere in the middle of reading Basara I seriously started to hate characters like Kaku-jii. I thought the girl will break because of her Tatara identity, and who then will be able to pick up the pieces? Nobody. Still, My hopes were on Ch ...
|Which character of NANA do you hate the most? And why?
(69 posts, 16597 views) Posted: 2842d 7h, 30m ago by Romashk in Nana
I can't truly hate any main characters, since those reporters ran from the crash. All the characters have something to hate them for, even if the point is to tell that they are just people, BUT running like that is not human. I think, I'll never forgive them. ...
|Meep-Scans Closes (And Possibly ShoujoMagic)
(55 posts, 3811 views) Posted: 2903d 11h, 43m ago by Romashk in News
It's sad, but each scanlated chapter is a stab to its original publisher and author. So, it's normal for old groups to close down.
I'm just glad, that nobody takes more offensive methods
I've been on forums that closed down before. It' ...

voting on a usefullness of a recomendation is a good idea...
votes can be counted and used as a reference to other series.
I went through several lists of recommendations and found them not accurate(sometimes way off)...
Maybe "tag" system should ...

(17 posts, 899 views) Posted: 3191d 7h, 15m ago by Romashk in News
dunno. Maybe replacing gives more of a comics feel, no? It doesn't have to be about leachers all the time. Manga is an asian art, so replacing all of asian traces would decrees feel of it. Try imagining "Batman" or "Xmen" with " ...

Emm... I bet that guy(alumnia, whos offering real plate) wasn't in the original script. He is just a key to end Mx0. And I thought he said a real plate, not a golden one. There were times Mx0 could have ended("time trip" or "plate upgrade exam ...

It is kind of a mystery to me, how they decide on such things. I mean, there are tons and tons of manga and anime out there which don't even stand a chance to be as popular as some of these titeles forcefully ended on so ...

Hmm... Well Mana was kinda like father to Allen, right? So I guess a parent(even foster) is family. And there is Cross, who knows what Allens childhood "was" like. Although Cross is an asshole(I hate players, gigalos andleechers ), but his not stupid to le ...

Hmm... If it's not going to be like "Kare Kano" I will watch it. But I seriously doubt that somebody will animate skip beat. Lately only short(13-24) series are being produced.
