|New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 588 views) Posted: 7d 19h, 31m ago by quark1020 in News
I am straight and I.....oh, its not one of those polls......
AHEM! Anyway, after watching anime and reading manga for about 17 years, I think I picked up plenty of vocabulary and a couple of phrases to have a head start in learning the language. If I new the proper senten ...
|New Poll - Best Mood
(13 posts, 364 views) Posted: 21d 18h, 17m ago by quark1020 in News
I think one aspect of a good manga is being able to incorporate a small amount of all of these while focusing on one tone. Having nothing but one tone will eventually get stale after a while, even if it is someone's favorite genre. For example, while I enjoyed r ...
|New Poll - Self-Control
(31 posts, 839 views) Posted: 42d 6h, 14m ago by quark1020 in News
If its work, then I have to stop. Can't read manga if i have no job, online or otherwise. Anything else, though, I can live without :3. The usual sacrifice is sleep, but I've already come to the conclusion that I won't be able to sleep either way if I' ...
|New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2388 views) Posted: 56d 18h, 43m ago by quark1020 in News
Give it some time. From the time of this reply, the poll has only been up roughly 3 hours. The only weird thing I find about this post is this strange feeling that we've done this poll before... ...
|New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 1282 views) Posted: 63d 9h, 5m ago by quark1020 in News
To be fair, the poll didn't specify on whether it was a villain you *could* be versus the one you *wanted* to be.
In my case, I'm a big guy, so I'd likely end up being the brute. However, if I could choose, I'd much rather be the ruling tyrant. ...
|New Poll - Collector
(39 posts, 1206 views) Posted: 112d 15h, 29m ago by quark1020 in News
Put me down for [All of the above]. Come on, if I had the spare money, I'd buy everything that my heart desired in this particular genre. Since this is not the case, though, I just buy physical manga volumes whenever I find them at discount. ...
|New Poll - Manga App
(38 posts, 1695 views) Posted: 139d 15h, 39m ago by quark1020 in News
I do not. The screen is too small on my phone to fully enjoy a manga (or any graphic novel in general) and I don't own a tablet. I'll stick to my PC at home or bring a physical book.
On a side note, I do use an app for light novels. My phone is definitely capa ...
|New Poll - Unrealistic Manga
(32 posts, 1786 views) Posted: 147d 6h, 14m ago by quark1020 in News
I have no strong feelings one way or the other. ...
|New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 1943 views) Posted: 175d 4h, 18m ago by quark1020 in News
I use a script blocker, which ends up blocking most of the ads I see. I know its a bit bad, especially for websites I do want to support, but you never know what weird things you'll get from some of these ads. ...
|New Poll - After Finishing a Series
(23 posts, 995 views) Posted: 182d 5h, 56m ago by quark1020 in News
It lets us screw around with the characters (sometimes literally) without having to worry about continuity. Sequels and spin-offs would be great too, but it will eventually get to the point where the series will start becoming stale or it goes in a direction that is ...
|New Poll - Assuming Genders
(56 posts, 3095 views) Posted: 238d 3h, 28m ago by quark1020 in News
Male here, and I just assume its a guy until I'm told otherwise. The way I see it, most of the places I visit tend to have a higher percentage of male, so the odds are in my favor. Worst case scenario, I got a 50% chance its male .
Personally, I don't think it ...
|New Poll - MU Years
(64 posts, 3022 views) Posted: 301d 16h, 45m ago by quark1020 in News
Probably since 2004-2006, I have no idea exactly. I only made an account several years ago when I started having trouble keeping track of my manga. I do remember using this site when we could still download by clicking on the little button next to the release name ...

This video sums up my opinion nicely:
|New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 4807 views) Posted: 343d 15h, 9m ago by quark1020 in News
I THINK I read mostly shounen. I don't really pay attention to the genre when I read, mainly just grabbing whatever I find interesting at the time. Only reason I assume its shounen is because it doesn't easily fit any of the other options .
I really shouldn' ...
|New Poll - Age
(30 posts, 1737 views) Posted: 364d 17h, 3m ago by quark1020 in News
You might have something there. Pokemon, DBZ, and Sailor Moon were, usually, the first anime/manga that many of us started with. Of course, my first anime was actually Vampire Hunter D when it showed on Cartoon Network back in 91, but I didn't start be ...
|New Poll - Aggregate Sites
(40 posts, 1926 views) Posted: 385d 21h, 31m ago by quark1020 in News
I use them more often than not.
A lot of scanlators now have their own manga readers for their website, so I don't have to go to Batoto for everything, but I end up using it most of the time anyway for manga that was released by a defunct groups or scanlato ...
|New Poll - Mortality
(43 posts, 2123 views) Posted: 398d 22h, 57m ago by quark1020 in News
That would be an interesting option for this poll, but it would depend on the restrictions involving it, such as the forms we can return as, distance between forms, and whether we can only continue to come back so long as biological life exists somewhere.
Hell, if you c ...
|New Poll - Mortality
(43 posts, 2123 views) Posted: 398d 23h, 18m ago by quark1020 in News
It would depend on what theories on the creation and death of a universe are true, but if I could figure out how to deal with the long wait and comfort (IE, Temperature and Vacuum), seeing the end of the universe and possible rebirth would be something to look ...
|New Poll - Mortality
(43 posts, 2123 views) Posted: 399d 22h, 23m ago by quark1020 in News
Existing forever would eventually suck, but I'll be able to live as long as I'd like if I don't have to worry about old age or sickness. Besides, if I had to choose, I'd take death by trauma over the plague. ...
|New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2977 views) Posted: 406d 23h, 46m ago by quark1020 in News
Most of the manga I enjoy to read seems to have something that wants to destroy the world/universe/reality or something for some reason. I'm fine here, thank you very much. ...
|New Poll - Pursuing Romance
(43 posts, 2261 views) Posted: 434d 13h, 48m ago by quark1020 in News
Yes, I'm boring like that. I just feel that is what both characters deserve. Depending on the characters, of course. ...
|New Poll - Time Spent
(23 posts, 1335 views) Posted: 441d 4h, 8m ago by quark1020 in News
I read manga or watch anime for about 30 to 60 minutes at breakfast every morning before work.
After work, I spend the rest of my free time with my true love.....
Video games. ...
|New Poll - Fan Service
(37 posts, 2945 views) Posted: 448d 16h, 8m ago by quark1020 in News
It generally fairly mild things. Things like an occasional panty shots and the very common, but mostly unnecessary, bath house and beach episodes. If the writer is good, the beach and bath house episodes could be plot relevant or at least necessary to tell something ...
|New Poll - Hentai
(52 posts, 5360 views) Posted: 480d 3h, 26m ago by quark1020 in News
Ecchi - A lot of strip teasing, sexual situations, Barbie doll anatomy, implied sex if any.
Borderline H - Strait nudity, briefly shown sex scenes, focuses on plot before and after sex.
Hentai - 3 pages of plot, 15 page sex scenes, everything but genitalia shown (silly Japane ...
|New Poll - Hentai
(52 posts, 5360 views) Posted: 480d 3h, 37m ago by quark1020 in News
Ecchi gets silly after a few chapters and frustrating if it doesn't go anywhere in the end.
Hentai, on the other hands, focuses too much on the sex scenes and not enough in plot.
Borderline H is the best of both worlds: hentai scenes to draw my inte ...
