New Poll - Choosing a Series
(21 posts, 384 views) Posted: 4d 13h, 49m ago by Identity Crisis in News
Either the mangaka, or a recommendation from someone. Usually the latter, though. The last time I gave another series from the mangaka a chance, it was from the creator of Hyakko, and was an absolute disappointment. Although, from the look of it, he isn' ...
About Disabled Images...
(2 posts, 124 views) Posted: 12d 8h, 0m ago by Identity Crisis in Suggestions & Bugs
I can't say for sure, since I'm not part of that side of things, but I assume it's to help avoid any sort of copyright issues for some of the bigger series. ...
What are you playing now?

I picked up an actual copy of Nocturne and am replaying that. I finished P5 a bit ago, too. ...

New Poll - Deal Breaker
(27 posts, 1332 views) Posted: 40d 6h, 44m ago by Identity Crisis in News
Nothing really offends me on principle. Sort of. There are fetishes that I'll drop things for, but topics like homosexuality and bigotry, abortion, incest or rape don't really affect me that way. So, with story themes and discussions, no, but yes if I'm re ...
New Poll - Manga into Anime
(14 posts, 548 views) Posted: 47d 20h, 29m ago by Identity Crisis in News
Storyline changes, rushing and censorship. Poor animation is usually just comical, and I can just skip filler. Voices don't really matter, since even after so many years I can't tell good from bad unless it's really bad. ...
How long have you been using MangaUpdates?

Almost ten years. I got a bit busy for a bit of that, but I've always come back! ...
New Poll - Hidden Hobby?
(15 posts, 870 views) Posted: 82d 21h, 37m ago by Identity Crisis in News
I don't go out of my way to hide it, or tell people. I listen to some music in the car, so I guess I'm not really ashamed of it or anything. If someone brings it up, or acknowledges it in a reasonable manner, then great, but it's just an interest, right? ...
Rei Hiroe Resumes Black Lagoon Manga

It actually did start back up. The mad man. ...
Homophobia and transphobia.
(16 posts, 2616 views) Posted: 139d 12h, 33m ago by Identity Crisis in Chatter Box
Quote from hkanz
Just because someone doesn't act offended IRL doesn't mean that's necessarily how they feel... there are many contexts in which shrugging something off may seem like the better option. If you're at work and your b ...
Homophobia and transphobia.
(16 posts, 2616 views) Posted: 141d 10h, 37m ago by Identity Crisis in Chatter Box
I've never met a homosexual that couldn't take a joke, the same as how I've never met a straight person that couldn't handle being made fun of for being straight. The current internet culture, though, is one of outrage, where people wan ...
New Poll - How Fast Do You Read?
(21 posts, 1628 views) Posted: 159d 19h, 33m ago by Identity Crisis in News
6 volumes? A few hours. I re-read berserk from right after the Golden Age, to the current chapter, in one evening. A 6 volume series is easy. ...
Does anyone still Roleplay Online?
(1 posts, 282 views) Posted: 159d 19h, 39m ago by Identity Crisis in Chatter Box
There are RP subreddits, and places you can post a prompt you had in mind, or reply to one already posted. This is probably not the best place to find someone to roleplay with. ...
New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2009 views) Posted: 166d 13h, 19m ago by Identity Crisis in News
I watched things like DB and Pokemon growing up, of course. The first thing that really got me interested in the genre, though, knowing what it actually was, was manga. A friend of mine in middle school let me borrow a few of his, and it just sorta took off from there ...

Do Old Horror Games Still Scare You?
(1 posts, 388 views) Posted: 174d 1h, 19m ago by Identity Crisis in Games
I can't remember the last time a game scared me, and it wasn't a jump scare. I think after a certain point, you just get so desensitized that even "scary" games don't have much effect. Now, there are disturbing things in some horro ...
The end. :(
(6 posts, 1309 views) Posted: 176d 7h, 35m ago by Identity Crisis in Highschool of the Dead
Ah, fuck. I think this is the first time it's happened with a series I follow. A few things like Hyakko and Black Lagoon are on indefinite hiatus, and pretty much canceled, but not like this. What a shame. Still, I hope his family is doing alright.

Spoiler (mouse over to vie ...
New Poll - Immortality
(18 posts, 1570 views) Posted: 186d 7h, 15m ago by Identity Crisis in News
Assuming immortality means you don't die of old age or sickness, and you don't continue to age after a certain point, then I think it would be a blessing. Otherwise, nobody wants to live forever, trapped in a husk of a body. ...
Do you guys play Visual Novels?
(10 posts, 755 views) Posted: 189d 13h, 29m ago by Identity Crisis in Games
Yes. ImoPara2 comes out soon. Feels good, man.

Putting sexual based ones aside, I really enjoy VNs. Probably more than manga, actually. A lot of them have choices, which are nice, since manga definitely don't. Majikoi, Bunny Black, the Grisaia series, G-S ...
Japanese BD/DVD Sales Down 6.2% From 2015
(2 posts, 589 views) Posted: 193d 23h, 12m ago by Identity Crisis in Anime TV/Movies
I don't think it would really be all that surprising. There will always be a market for physical copies, but it seems like most people want digital copies nowadays. ...
New Poll - Manga Comments
(10 posts, 1011 views) Posted: 196d 8h, 30m ago by Identity Crisis in News
Years ago. I occasionally talk with one or two people about a series here or there, but I mostly just enjoy things on my own now. ...
New Poll - Conventions

I went to Otakon about... Wow, 10 years ago now. Or it will be ten years this summer. Too many people. ...

Boyish or a style that covers one eye. Short hair is real good, though. ...

Oh, what a glorious train wreck this is going to be. ...
When you were little, what did you want to grow up to be?

I wanted to help people, so I was aiming to become a cop. I've shifted gears towards counseling, though. ...
