|New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1066 views) Posted: 10d 3h, 42m ago by Nirhtuc in News
lol I'm just professional and I think I need help! ...
|New Poll - AMVs
(23 posts, 720 views) Posted: 17d 13h, 15m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Uhm... yeah. I don't know what they are! I could google, but that would be cheating, so I voted for the last option! ...
|New Poll - Assuming Genders
(56 posts, 1745 views) Posted: 21d 11h, 31m ago by Nirhtuc in News
This week's poll is a little odd but very interesting! I don't know about others, but I really can't tell if I'm talking to a male or female based on their written language (or even avatars/user pics), so I tend not to make assumptions about gende ...
|What's Your Native Language?
(162 posts, 7637 views) Posted: 24d 7h, 20m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
I'm pretty much a simultaneous bilingual- I started speaking Sinhalese when I was 2, and then I started learning English when I was 3. English is the only language I can fluently read, write, and speak, though... ...
|How Will You React? - Holding a Human Head
(16 posts, 580 views) Posted: 28d 10h, 58m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
I'd probably pass out. ...
|New Poll - After a While...
(21 posts, 437 views) Posted: 30d 5h, 36m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Yep. I agree that a series should stop before it loses meaning, plot, and whatever good points it had. I really don't like it when mangaka needlessly keep a series going on and on for profit. It undermines art (and often bores/puts off the readers). Some manga ...
|The "Holding Back" Talk
(14 posts, 443 views) Posted: 34d 1h, 18m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
OP, you're not the only one who thinks it sounds stupid! I don't read shoujo, but I see the ridiculous 'holding back' line in BL too. I believe that saying it in real life is disrespectful to males more than females because it implies that men are jus ...
|Something That Made You Frown Today...
(174 posts, 5064 views) Posted: 64d 0h, 46m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
The fact that almost everything makes me want to frown!
|New Poll - 2014 FIFA World Cup
(35 posts, 1413 views) Posted: 67d 3h, 13m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I don't care either, but it's fine that others do. At least this poll isn't religious... or inappropriate. ...
|New Poll - Anime Diverges
(20 posts, 563 views) Posted: 94d 9h, 54m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Good poll! I voted for the second option, but I wouldn't necessarily expect the divergent storyline to 'suck', though. I would give it a chance, and if it does really suck, then I'd stop watching the series. ...
|New Poll - Age
(30 posts, 1325 views) Posted: 151d 3h, 31m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Sighhh! Thanks for reminding me about my age! I'm probably too old to be reading manga now... but then, I'm probably too old to be doing almost everything else I'm doing right now! Severe late-bloomer syndrome... ...
|Top 5 things that makes you Single
(18 posts, 1043 views) Posted: 163d 15h, 43m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
1. I'm a hermit- I rarely even visit the few friends I have
2. I have social anxiety- even talking to an attractive person can make me nervous
3. There aren't many others out there with the same values and beliefs
4. All the attractive ones are either taken. ...
|New Poll - Manga Magazines
(20 posts, 769 views) Posted: 178d 8h, 0m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Good poll this week too! I picked the last option- I doubt there are entire magazines of my preferred genre in English, so sadly, there's no point in buying manga magazines- I do buy manga though... ...
|Something that made you smile today.
(2596 posts, 219295 views) Posted: 192d 10h, 16m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
Have been having a horrible day (everyone at home ganging up on me basically), and saw the twin babies holding on to each other clip. Made me smile and then made me cry again because I wish my twin didn't die in the womb (and I would probably have som ...
|New Poll - Archive
(37 posts, 1288 views) Posted: 205d 12h, 35m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Great poll this week! I archive everything (in a rather disorganised way)- I have a 'favourites' list and I archive everything else according to sub-genres... and then I delete the duds if I come across them again. ...
|How old were you when you got your first cell phone?
(65 posts, 1829 views) Posted: 211d 11h, 23m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
I got a Nokia flip phone for my 21st birthday, but it was locked on to a crappy network and no matter how many times I asked, they wouldn't unlock it, so I never ended up using it.
I'm not a very social person anyway, so I don't have a big need ...
|Who's the nicest/meanest stranger you've ever met?
(25 posts, 1858 views) Posted: 213d 10h, 1m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
Nicest: I was waiting at a bus stop after dark, and it so happened that there were no more buses going to my house (the bus stop is right in front of my house) at that time. There was one more bus, but this one's last stop was quite some distance from my hou ...
|New Poll - Time Travel
(26 posts, 1277 views) Posted: 213d 10h, 13m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I picked near future too, because there simply aren't many (any??) manga of my preferred genre in that category. It would be really interesting to read something like that- most of the other ones have been done at least once before. ...
|New Poll - Pursuing Romance
(43 posts, 1746 views) Posted: 221d 5h, 5m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I think they meant other kinds of forbidden relationships (like Romeo and Juliet type ones). ...
|New Poll - Pursuing Romance
(43 posts, 1746 views) Posted: 221d 5h, 6m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Haha nice poll! TBH, I like all of these equally well (except for the animal one and the inanimate object one...), but picked the childhood friend, because that kind of relationship could get very complex and interesting, but also have a more realistic possibility of a happy ...
|Personality Disorder Test
(361 posts, 24520 views) Posted: 225d 7h, 29m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
Borderline: Very High
Avoidant: Very High
Um... excuse me while I check in to the closest psychiatric hospital! ...
|Things that annoy you about the opposite sex
(194 posts, 12482 views) Posted: 227d 10h, 58m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
Wow... I've been here a while and I've never seen this thread. Anyway, there are many things that annoy me about the opposite sex. Of course, not all guys have these traits, and some women have them too. These are the top 5 in my opinion (in no pa ...
|I need a new Yaoi manga to read!
(2 posts, 472 views) Posted: 232d 23h, 21m ago by Nirhtuc in Yaoi/Yuri
Here are my recommendations:
Hana no Mizo Shiru
Tenohira no Seiza
Koutetsu no Baby Leaf
Anohito to Nitenai Kuchibiru (all the stories except for chapters 3 and 5- skip those)
Aozora no Sunda Iro wa
G-Senjou no Neko
Manazashi no Haya ...

|New Poll - Fan Service
(37 posts, 2310 views) Posted: 235d 2h, 22m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I voted 'don't like it at all' but that's because I find it weird, mostly... just weird, and very occasionally, funny. ...
