New Poll - Manga Comments
(10 posts, 1083 views) Posted: 282d 21h, 59m ago by drunkguy in News
If this was five years ago, always. Nowadays, only sometimes, mostly because the stuff I read is mostly gag humor and it often feels like I am repeating myself too much with each new review. ...
New Poll - Other Settings
(14 posts, 1234 views) Posted: 303d 1h, 8m ago by drunkguy in News
Should have included off planet options. Space is my setting of choice. Of the options given, Antarctica would be most interesting since I like penguins. ...
New Poll - Chinese Names in Japanese Manga
(20 posts, 2414 views) Posted: 308d 5h, 34m ago by drunkguy in News
This would be situational. Keeping it the way the author made it makes sense in a Japanese setting or if the name was nonsense to begin with. Otherwise, it would sound as silly as an english name that has been badly translated. Do readers really want to read or h ...
New Poll - Live Action Adaptations
(17 posts, 2366 views) Posted: 325d 3h, 34m ago by drunkguy in News
Live action adaptations of anime done by Hollywood generally fill me with the same dread I have of video game movie adaptations. Some of the japanese adaptations of manga like Cromartie Highschool or Battle Royale were alright though. Moyashimon, not so ...

(17 posts, 2065 views) Posted: 332d 12h, 12m ago by drunkguy in News
I listen to a couple once in a while but I haven't found one that I really liked since Macross Frontier. Then again, I don't watch as much anime as I used to. ...
New Poll - Alignment
(6 posts, 1039 views) Posted: 335d 21h, 28m ago by drunkguy in News
I enjoy playing chaotic neutral characters with low intelligence and wisdom. Think Patrick Star from Spongebob or Billy from "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" and you have a general idea of what it is like with me in the party. laugh ...

Do you remember what Ben Carson's defense was for supporting Trump? Even if Trump is terrible, it's just four years.Yeah. We're screwed. ...

New Poll - Saving a Dying World
(16 posts, 2165 views) Posted: 409d 17h, 39m ago by drunkguy in News
Seeing as I would probably seek to conquer it, I would either save it and become an autocrat/dictator or destroy it. Possibly both. ...
New Poll - Good and Evil
(23 posts, 2616 views) Posted: 423d 11h, 45m ago by drunkguy in News
For manga in general, good turning evil is more interesting. Corruption tends to be more permanent and even if they repent, their evil actions will have lasting consequences.

For american superhero comic books, I would say villain turning good. They've don ...

A lightweight long lasting 10" tablet is my preferred device. Any bigger makes it too inconvenient. Smart phones are way too small. ...

Do you read manga in the bathroom?
I read a lot while on the toilet.
I spend a minute or two reading.
Ew. No. dead

edit: Just noticed I did a similar one a few years back. I'm guessing a lot more people do this now than then. ...
New Poll - Bad Characteristics
(25 posts, 2851 views) Posted: 462d 10h, 11m ago by drunkguy in News
I think everyone would pick cringeworthy as the blanket reason. For myself, the MC would have to have multiple obnoxious traits like being a dumb cowardly crybaby to qualify.

Generally, one or two flaws can be redeemed by good traits or good side characters ...
New Poll - Classic Manga
(41 posts, 4080 views) Posted: 472d 10h, 55m ago by drunkguy in News
It has been a long time since I searched for a classic series that I have not read yet. Finding a good completely translated classic is pretty tough. Most of the time, translators and publishers give up long before the last volume. Usually, I just look for anime if I want t ...
New Poll - American Comics as Manga
(19 posts, 2425 views) Posted: 491d 20h, 59m ago by drunkguy in News
I would give it a shot. Seeing how mangaka would handle the costume redesigns would be worth a look at least. Having good self contained stories that aren't interrupted by frequent crossover events American comics have been plagued with for well ove ...
Something That Made You Frown Today...

I forgot NBC's delayed coverage of the Olympics would fill large portions of the opening ceremony with commercial breaks again. I should have set up a VPN to watch it on CBC or BBC. sad ...
