|New Poll - Sexism
(121 posts, 3581 views) Posted: 1d 9h, 19m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I find it pretty sickening that this poll seems to bother more people than the 'what breast size do you prefer in manga' poll that we had some time ago!
Perhaps there should be another poll with the question: 'how proudly sexist are you on a scale ...
|New Poll - Humor
(16 posts, 414 views) Posted: 7d 11h, 43m ago by Nirhtuc in News
What a funny poll! I don't usually develop any humour after reading any manga (even comedic ones)... I don't know, maybe some people do, but it seems a little weird! ...
|New Poll - Favorite Narrative
(13 posts, 323 views) Posted: 15d 16h, 26m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Good poll this week. I voted for 'overall story divided into arcs and phases', but to be honest, I don't really have a preference. I like them all equally, and it's really the type and quality of the story, art, and characters that determine my enjo ...
|New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 1131 views) Posted: 24d 8h, 11m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I never thought I would ever buy manga (due to the convenience of scanlations), but once I started buying, I kept buying, and now I have an entire shelf of purchased hardcopies! I guess scanlations actually helped bring me in as a customer because I bought the actu ...
|New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 1491 views) Posted: 37d 9h, 20m ago by Nirhtuc in News
lol I'm just professional and I think I need help! ...
|New Poll - AMVs
(23 posts, 886 views) Posted: 44d 18h, 53m 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, 2098 views) Posted: 48d 17h, 9m 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?
(182 posts, 8495 views) Posted: 51d 12h, 58m 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
(17 posts, 662 views) Posted: 55d 16h, 36m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
I'd probably pass out. ...
|New Poll - After a While...
(21 posts, 568 views) Posted: 57d 11h, 13m 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, 473 views) Posted: 61d 6h, 56m 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...
(177 posts, 5283 views) Posted: 91d 6h, 24m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
The fact that almost everything makes me want to frown!
|New Poll - 2014 FIFA World Cup
(35 posts, 1661 views) Posted: 94d 8h, 51m 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, 662 views) Posted: 121d 15h, 32m 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, 1414 views) Posted: 178d 9h, 9m 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, 1068 views) Posted: 190d 21h, 20m 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, 834 views) Posted: 205d 13h, 37m 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.
(2603 posts, 222230 views) Posted: 219d 15h, 54m 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, 1340 views) Posted: 232d 18h, 12m 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?
(76 posts, 2158 views) Posted: 238d 17h, 1m 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, 1872 views) Posted: 240d 15h, 39m 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, 1334 views) Posted: 240d 15h, 51m 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, 1820 views) Posted: 248d 10h, 43m 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, 1820 views) Posted: 248d 10h, 44m 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

Borderline: Very High
Avoidant: Very High
Um... excuse me while I check in to the closest psychiatric hospital! ...
