|New Poll - Loli/Shota
(186 posts, 4463 views) Posted: 5d 11h, 2m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I vote yes/yes.
I find the whole idea disturbing. I live in Japan and frankly there is a worrying amount of sexuality attached to young children. Grown women dress and act like young girl to attract men because cute=desirable. I know that I have no right to judge conse ...
|New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1883 views) Posted: 97d 4h, 2m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Amateur, not counting DJs, one shots and series I've barely touched. I've been reading manga for around 12 years, but didn't keep track for the first 5, and my reading slowed considerably when I started university. Now I'm doing my pos ...
|New Poll - City Size
(39 posts, 1277 views) Posted: 160d 6h, 51m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I live in Kyoto, which has over 1million residents, so big city it is, but my hometown is a small city of 300,000. I also spent 3 years living in a medium sized city, and 3 years living in a town of 40,000. I wonder if I can manage to live in a metropolis and in a rural area as we ...
|Fifa World Cup 2014

Nation pride tells me to choose England, but honestly we haven't a chance. I'm putting money on either Brazil, Argentina or the Netherlands to win it.
The Netherlands have a ridiculously strong team this year, and have been playing much better than any ...
|Is this Cool?: Sword Balancing on Shoulder
(12 posts, 457 views) Posted: 178d 11h, 47m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
I can't picture it working either. Even with the best balance in the world, your movements would be highly restricted and you'd end up knocking into everything. I would really be intimidated by an opponent balancing a sword on their shoulder, just confuse ...
|New Poll - Can't Sleep
(23 posts, 891 views) Posted: 199d 23h, 49m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
My cat doesn't understand the concept of a full night's sleep. ...
|New Poll - Age
(30 posts, 1533 views) Posted: 235d 4h, 57m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
My poll, yay. I've been curious about this for ages.
Personally I'm 25, but I started reading manga when I was 13. I never considered that all of us from the Pokemon (DBZ and Sailor Moon as well for those of you across the pond, though they weren' ...
|How often do you take breaks from manga?
(15 posts, 671 views) Posted: 256d 3h, 36m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Manga General
I don't really take breaks from manga, as I'm a compulsive bookworm and must be reading something. I usually read manga and a novel, alternating between them. Some weeks I read more manga and others I read less, it all depends on what else I h ...
|Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
(34 posts, 1689 views) Posted: 257d 5h, 1m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
I share the bed with my cat, I sleep where ever she chooses not to. Luckily I have a semi-single, which gives me just enough space. My cat is small at just 3.5kg, but she somehow manages to take up the whole bed. ...
|Currently BROKENHEARTED! HELP!
(31 posts, 1309 views) Posted: 258d 5h, 25m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
In high school I had a huge crush on a close friend or years, so one day I just told him that I liked him. He didn't like me back sadly, and for a while it was awkward, but eventually (faster than I could have imagined) we got over it. The relief of having told him an ...
|New Poll - World Transfer
(64 posts, 2524 views) Posted: 279d 2h, 2m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
No, I could never give up my life and dreams here. I could never say goodbye to my friends and family. I could never leave my pets. I love manga, but I love my real life too much to ever leave it behind. I'm going to creat a new vaccine and open an animal she ...

Quote from CuthienSilmeriel
I would get the number of the love of my life, call an ambulance for the dying man and give none of them a ride since I don't allow strangers into my car and if they're at a bus stop I'd assume a bus would be along so ...

|New Poll - Time Travel
(26 posts, 1461 views) Posted: 300d 1h, 48m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I dated my childhood friend, our dad's are best friends and he's only 6 months older so we just kinda ended up being each other's first boyfriend/girlfriend when we were younger (like 13). They we grew up and I matured, he didn't. Not to ...

I met a girl who not only shared my birthday, but we were born around the same time, we shared a name and were the same age as well. We were doing the same job, in the same prefecture (we met in Japan). It was weird, though since she was born in the USA a ...

I can definitely see why it can be a curse sometimes, watching loved ones die for eternity and lingering on alone, unable to really put down roots to hide your immortality, is a lonely existence. On the other hand, the accomplishments you could achieve if you didn' ...

I've only ever met 1 pair of identical twins, 2 girls in my year at high school. They weren't in my class and I barely ever spoke to them, so I could never tell them apart. All the other twins I've met have been non-identical, (I've met 2 boy/gir ...
|What to Eat When You Have No Money
(153 posts, 11242 views) Posted: 313d 3h, 7m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
Beans on toast. Classic impoverished student staple.
A loaf of bread = £1
Tin of beans = 45p
A meal for £1.45!
Also, you can just cut down on meals. Instead of 3 meals a day, have 2 large meals, a brunch at around 11am and an evening meal at arou ...
|Ever Attended Military Training/Exercise??
(22 posts, 1324 views) Posted: 323d 2h, 6m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
There's no compulsory military training in the UK, but I was in the army cadets as a young teen. It's kind of like a pre-army club for 12-16 year olds where we learn some basic military skills (lots oif marching!!!) and go on basic training camps. Nothing to ...
|Manga that keeps improving with each chapters
(17 posts, 1601 views) Posted: 329d 3h, 42m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in I'm Looking For...
Lots of good ones already said so I'll add
Banana Fish - This is the best manga I have ever read, and I've read a lot of manga over the last 12 years. Don't let the art put you off, I did and I regretted doing so once I finally read ...
|SPOILER, The finale of Code Geass R2
(6 posts, 588 views) Posted: 329d 12h, 21m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
The creators said he died about a year after the ending, just to end all the speculation and demands for another sequel. It is sad, but him dying really was the best way to end it. Anything else would have cheapened the entire series. ...
|What's Your Native Language?
(189 posts, 9275 views) Posted: 332d 5h, 52m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
English for me as well.
I failed both French and Spanish in school, but can speak enough Japanese to get by. I'm not good enough to translate though, manga is HARD!!!! ...
|Realistic J Dramas
(15 posts, 1148 views) Posted: 393d 4h, 53m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in I'm Looking For...
I highly recommend the J-drama version of Hana Yori Dango (not the Korean version, which I found far too over dramatic). The Japanese version does a great job of depicting the manga. Kimi wa petto is also good, but the manga is better to be honest. ...
|Long and addicting manga
(9 posts, 854 views) Posted: 407d 23h, 1m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in I'm Looking For...
Try Banana Fish (don't let the art put you off, this manga is amazing)
A cruel god reigns
No romance, except in the last one which is a yaoi I guess but isn't at all explicit, but they have great plots, likeable characters and fantastic development ...
