New Poll - Converting for the Fandom
(11 posts, 224 views) Posted: 7d 22h, 45m ago by quark1020 in News
Oh yes, several. The trick is to show them something related to their interest. They'll either love it and look for more, or hate it, complain how they got their hobby wrong, but still read it to the end, then look for another one to see if they do it correctly. Either w ...
New Poll - April Fools' Scanlator Jokes
(12 posts, 832 views) Posted: 56d 10h, 33m ago by quark1020 in News
So long as they're properly labeled, I'm fine with them. I've seen some funny prank translation, but I once downloaded an anime that was all joke translated without knowing. That annoyed the hell out of me. ...
New Poll - Sun vs. Moon
(17 posts, 2107 views) Posted: 189d 23h, 9m 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, 2065 views) Posted: 203d 10h, 23m 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
(12 posts, 1260 views) Posted: 217d 23h, 36m ago by quark1020 in News
Don' care, so long as they get released. ...
New Poll - Categories
(21 posts, 2031 views) Posted: 391d 21h, 37m ago by quark1020 in News
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, 1899 views) Posted: 434d 23h, 5m 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, 2696 views) Posted: 476d 22h, 56m 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, 3195 views) Posted: 509d 8h, 22m 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, 1894 views) Posted: 728d 17h, 36m 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, 2188 views) Posted: 736d 0h, 34m 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, 3383 views) Posted: 756d 21h, 53m ago by quark1020 in News
I'd pick mostly the songs I like laugh . If I'm gonna go embarrass, I may as well enjoy myself. ...
New Poll - Manga Cafe
(17 posts, 4269 views) Posted: 763d 22h, 44m 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, 4410 views) Posted: 770d 15h, 58m 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, 2792 views) Posted: 799d 0h, 28m 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, 1562 views) Posted: 812d 23h, 14m 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, 3216 views) Posted: 833d 11h, 11m 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, 7044 views) Posted: 847d 23h, 41m 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, 3937 views) Posted: 854d 14h, 3m 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, 3258 views) Posted: 903d 20h, 27m 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, 3902 views) Posted: 930d 20h, 37m 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, 3471 views) Posted: 938d 11h, 11m ago by quark1020 in News
Indifferent

I have no strong feelings one way or the other. ...
New Poll - Ad-blocker
(37 posts, 4283 views) Posted: 966d 9h, 16m 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, 2082 views) Posted: 973d 10h, 54m ago by quark1020 in News
Fan Fiction,

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, 5184 views) Posted: 1029d 8h, 26m 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 bigrazz.

Personally, I don't think it ...
