Sorry to everyone for the late replies. I've had some personal stuff going on, and the time I have been on the site has been mostly spent sorting those annoying glasses tags... which I still haven't finished yet. I still stand by my reasoning to have male & ...
Genre question
(2 posts, 111 views) Posted: 27d 18h, 59m ago by lynira in Manga General
The fantasy and supernatural genres overlap a bit, so things like this tend to happen. My opinion is that magical girl series are more fantasy, because they necessarily involve magic, and magic better fits into the definition of the fantasy genre here. (As you can see ...

I'm aware of the issue, and I'm slowly working through them. Your solution (combining them all into one category) would be a lot easier, but I think it's best to have male and female versions, since I think that most people using this sort of tag do c ...
New Poll - MU Years

I started using the site sometime in 2007 and joined several months later at the end of that year. I used to make my own spreadsheets of information about manga I wanted to read, and came here for info... hard to believe I actually used to do that. MU's inform ...

This was actually a couple days ago, but for the first time, I tried making an "icebox cake." It turned out great! It was pretty easy, too. I'm definitely going to make more in the future. This one was coconut s'more-themed, with graham crack ...

No, you're not the only one. This feature is being considered (as is usually the case for suggestions that haven't gotten a staff reply rejecting them), but I can't make you any promises--every staff member who can program is busy.

I know it' ...

I started playing Bravely Default recently. I like it so far, although I know that I'm heavily biased toward RPG/adventure games, since they're my favorite genre... I tend to like every one I play. But I could do without the camera angle switching so often du ...
NEW Manga no Page Problem Solution
(5 posts, 219 views) Posted: 63d 19h, 51m ago by lynira in Suggestions & Bugs
I think I see what you are suggesting. You want to reduce the number of releases with no linked series info page by prompting the user who submits the release to create and fill out a page, right?

I think the idea has some merits, but is not worth the trouble to progra ...

I just finished playing Link's Awakening, which I had wanted to play for a long time. It was pretty short, and easier than I was expecting, but I still had fun. I wouldn't say it's my favorite Zelda game, but it had a lot of light-hearted charm that I really e ...

To Tripitaka:
Sorry for the really late reply; I did most of these in early April, but I put off typing up the summary. :/

weekly shonen jump - when Saturday, when no Jump

I don't know of any listing or calendar like that for Weekly Shounen Jump. Anyway, I don't have much expertise with magazines, but I heard that Weekly Shounen Jump takes 4 breaks: approximately the first week of January, the final week of April, the ...
New Poll - Manga Magazines

I've been hearing for a while that manga magazines are struggling with poor sales, so I wasn't expecting that so many people would actually buy magazines if they were available (almost 40% of people!). The number of people who currently buy is as ...

On another note, there are tags for amnesia and memory loss which are basically the same thing.
Memory Loss was merged into Amnesia.

Today, for the first time, I'm trying to learn to use my mouse with my left hand, because I've gotten a cramp in my right arm (usually happens when I use the computer for several hours straight, but today it's worse than normal). Man, it's ...

Quote from Tsubamex
I knew about them and would use the 'shoujo with male lead/FD with ML' tag but didn't really take to the 'MD with FL' tag. Mainly because I saw it as 'aimed at guys' more than 'shounen+s ...
General protagonist categories
(4 posts, 377 views) Posted: 166d 15h, 1m ago by lynira in Suggestions & Bugs
Please don't add a category for just "male protagonist" or "female protagonist," because most demographics strongly favor one gender as protagonists (e.g., the vast majority of shoujo have female protagonists), so you can usua ...

No, I've never archived scanlations. Back when I read a lot and didn't know any Japanese (several years ago), I would either download and then delete (if I liked it, especially enough to re-read, I bought the physical volumes from Japan, so I didn' ...

Quote from Dr. Love
The tag is not equivalent to romance because most romance manga are two people evolving towards becoming a couple. Essentially becoming a couple is the endgame and then the manga is over. Check the tag. Romance manga that actu ...

to Dr. Love & kitty 1826x:
Ok, I have deleted Couple/s already, since it's redundant with the romance genre as well as yaoi, shoujo ai, smut, etc. (I guess one could argue that it would be okay if it were used to indicate a couple as important characters in ...

Quote from Tripitaka
I consider Cutie Lips by HARUMI Chihiro to be rather Borderline H and Ecchi than Hentai because it focuses on the characters' relationships. The very graphic sex scenes are only an additional feature.
Ok, I removed hentai genre from ...

What is Cohabitation?
