|New Poll - Sun vs. Moon
(17 posts, 1515 views) Posted: 99d 8h, 50m ago by quark1020 in News
B/W and X/Y had stories, with X/Y being the most fleshed out I've seen in a Pokemon game.
Whether its considered good or not depends on the user. Its standard shonen fare aimed at children between 7 to 12 (imo). I thought it was pretty good, considering ...
|New Poll - Reading on the Toilet
(19 posts, 1601 views) Posted: 112d 20h, 4m ago by quark1020 in News
Its more of a "no" than "Ew, no". I'm not above reading on the john, I just don't have a big enough smart phone for manga. Also, I don't want to get my paper books....wet. ...
|New Poll - Release Schedules

Don' care, so long as they get released. ...
|New Poll - Categories

Character growth. I'm a sucker for a good story about an underdog getting stronger and winning the tournament against all odds.
Incidentally, rape is also an important category, but not because I enjoy it. I NEED to know if a story has it at some point, despite ...
|New Poll - Drawing Your Own Manga
(15 posts, 1753 views) Posted: 344d 8h, 46m ago by quark1020 in News
I know my own drawing skills, and while I may be half decent if I REALLY gave it my all, I don't have the passion or patience to make a project like that. ...
|New Poll - Skipping to the End
(20 posts, 2523 views) Posted: 386d 8h, 37m ago by quark1020 in News
I put never, but then I remembered: Naruto. In my defense, the ending was spoiled and I just really wanted to see the kids of the naruto characters.
Other than that, never. Granted, non of the manga I read are either not completely translated or I don't own all t ...
|New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 3048 views) Posted: 418d 18h, 3m ago by quark1020 in News
Assuming there is no change in plot, no censorship of any kind, and no removal of scenes (a little filler is fine in moderation) then the anime is good enough. There is little reason to see/read it again, unless its that good, so I'd rather have the version that also ...
|New Poll - Release Gap
(14 posts, 1849 views) Posted: 638d 3h, 17m ago by quark1020 in News
Depends on the length. A chapter or two missing is no big deal, I can try to guess whats going on with raws or just skip it all together if I'm not particularly attached to that moment in the series, especially if many volumes have been translated past that sectio ...
|New Poll - Mangaka Assistant
(17 posts, 2140 views) Posted: 645d 10h, 15m ago by quark1020 in News
I thought they were hilarious. I would have picked all four if i could, just to troll the poll! ...
|New Poll - Karaoke
(14 posts, 3365 views) Posted: 666d 7h, 33m ago by quark1020 in News
I'd pick mostly the songs I like . If I'm gonna go embarrass, I may as well enjoy myself. ...
|New Poll - Manga Cafe
(17 posts, 4162 views) Posted: 673d 8h, 25m ago by quark1020 in News
I'd probably try it once. After that, it would depend on if the place was good.
Assuming its good, then I'd go for the manga. I already have internet at my house and places that don't focus on food will either overcharge, have crappy food, or both. ...
|New Poll - Old vs. New Group
(19 posts, 4354 views) Posted: 680d 1h, 39m ago by quark1020 in News
I mainly read the faster one, unless the quality drop is extreme. Generally, though, the difference isn't that big. Sometimes, the only difference between translators is how much of the translation they keep in Japanese, such as "brother" vs " ...
|New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 2653 views) Posted: 708d 10h, 9m 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, 1511 views) Posted: 722d 8h, 55m 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, 3014 views) Posted: 742d 20h, 52m 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, 6868 views) Posted: 757d 9h, 21m 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, 3832 views) Posted: 763d 23h, 43m 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, 3130 views) Posted: 813d 6h, 7m 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, 3791 views) Posted: 840d 6h, 18m 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, 3410 views) Posted: 847d 20h, 52m ago by quark1020 in News
I have no strong feelings one way or the other. ...
|New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 4132 views) Posted: 875d 18h, 57m 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, 2050 views) Posted: 882d 20h, 35m 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, 5061 views) Posted: 938d 18h, 7m 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, 6025 views) Posted: 1002d 7h, 23m 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:
