New Poll - New Words/Terms
(15 posts, 224 views) Posted: 2d 17h, 40m ago by Nirhtuc in News
When I read an unknown word or complicated term, I typically...

Look it up immediately in a good online dictionary if I have time. If not, guess the meaning by context. I'm a linguaphile, so I usually look it up immediately! ...
New Poll - Manga Influencing Your Decision
(11 posts, 333 views) Posted: 18d 15h, 31m ago by Nirhtuc in News
As ridiculous as it may sound to some, manga was what rid me of homophobia. After strict religious schooling, I was conditioned to condemn people like that, and after reading a BL manga that one of my Asian friends insisted that I read, it totally gave me a new pe ...
New Poll - J-Pop
(19 posts, 604 views) Posted: 39d 16h, 54m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I listen to J-Pop sometimes. I much prefer K-Pop, though- K-Pop reminds me of 90s pop, which I used to enjoy as a teen. J-Pop also sounds too electronic and the girls always have really high-pitched almost chipmunk voices, which I personally do not enjoy... ...
New Poll - Sickness
(16 posts, 549 views) Posted: 46d 5h, 25m ago by Nirhtuc in News
How are all these people going about their regular days while on flu, in pain etc.?! Well, I haven't started working yet, so maybe I'll find out... I tend to just stay in bed, take panadols and necessary medications, and enjoy me some movies and manga/an ...
Smut and the Female Gaze
(12 posts, 889 views) Posted: 54d 2h, 37m ago by Nirhtuc in Shoujo/Josei
Beautiful faced bishies and kind and gallant alpha guy characters would be my eye candy. biggrin
However, I feel like it's what the male characters actually do rather than what they look like that I find erotic. I can't comment on josei/shoujo etc., but good loo ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 2475 views) Posted: 67d 22h, 25m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Not really into shoujo, but I loved Fruits Basket and Maid-sama was fun as well. ...
New Poll - Manga Ads
(29 posts, 1169 views) Posted: 81d 1h, 36m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I agree with non-intrusive AND non-malware. I love adblocker, but yes, if there were more manga to access freely and legally, then I would click on the ads once per chapter (but I wouldn't buy anything from said ads). ...
New Poll - Maid Cafes
(17 posts, 756 views) Posted: 88d 18h, 13m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Of course there are none where I live, but the idea bothers and fascinates me both! If there were male and male crossdressing maids in the cafe, I'd visit one! biggrin On second thought, I prefer butlers as well! ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 1054 views) Posted: 95d 22h, 49m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I got most of my manga from and a few from eBay. ...
New Poll - Anime/Manga and You
(19 posts, 1084 views) Posted: 102d 4h, 4m ago by Nirhtuc in News
It's definitely not a lifestyle for me, but an ongoing hobby that I've engaged in for 10+ years now. I find that I mostly tend to forget about manga and anime when I'm involved in a new and signficant endeavour in my life (e.g. a romantic partner). ...
New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 1918 views) Posted: 109d 20h, 31m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I understood the question in the poll even though the wording could be interpreted in a couple of ways. To my knowledge, there is no Japanese manga in Queensland bookstores (I'm not sure about other states). My state is probably one of the least multicultur ...
New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 1617 views) Posted: 116d 1h, 1m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I've only ever played one game like that, and I picked a monster thing of unknown gender (probably assumed to be male? I don't know!), so it's none of the above! laugh ...
What sorts of people read manga???
(984 posts, 183776 views) Posted: 116d 17h, 11m ago by Nirhtuc in Chatter Box
Have I done this one before? Can't remember! Anyway...

Gender: Female
Age: 30
Country/Continent: Australia
Race: Mostly South Asian (with possible South East Asian and European ancestry too)
Main Personality Traits: Protective, loyal, stubborn, quirky, in ...
New Poll - Pirate Remorse
(34 posts, 2341 views) Posted: 123d 22h, 17m ago by Nirhtuc in News
If we are talking about music and movies, yes, I would feel guilty if I was getting pirated music and movies by independent artists and companies (because they don't make too much money themselves). This is why I make a habit of paying for indie media. Main ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 2070 views) Posted: 130d 3h, 5m ago by Nirhtuc in News
"I'm female and I prefer none of the above" would be my option, so I didn't vote. My favourite demographic is probably one of the most hated ones, but I love it! laugh ...
New Poll - Appearances
(16 posts, 1188 views) Posted: 134d 15h, 59m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Yes, it is very dependent on the genre. However, I think a middle ground is best: minor changes in appearance can be frequent, but more significant changes should be attributable to major changes in the character's life (e.g. passing of time, personality cha ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 2985 views) Posted: 165d 17h, 43m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I don't exclusively hate any genre, really, although I'm aware that most people do (especially the ones that were not included in this poll). From experience, though, I like shoujo the least, mainly because of the art (women drawn like chibis), the childish a ...
New Poll - Camping Out
(8 posts, 704 views) Posted: 172d 15h, 56m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I've never been that desperate to buy anything, and I think I will continue to keep it like that! It's easier to buy things online, anyway- you don't need to camp outside and line up or whatever. no ...
New Poll - Release Gap
(14 posts, 1217 views) Posted: 178d 16h, 56m ago by Nirhtuc in News
This week's poll is great. If a storyline is very interesting, I always tend to look for the raws to guess what's going to happen next (whether or not the later chapters are scanlated). ...
New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 2674 views) Posted: 187d 20h, 15m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I love Japanese and the way it sounds, but I would never want a magical change of my primary language (which is English). I think English sounds the nicest, to my ear, anyway. ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 15898 views) Posted: 374d 18h, 8m ago by Nirhtuc in News
I don't like or approve, but I don't believe in censorship, so I vote no. ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 13103 views) Posted: 429d 19h, 59m 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, 1348 views) Posted: 435d 22h, 23m 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! laugh ...
New Poll - Favorite Narrative
(13 posts, 1062 views) Posted: 444d 3h, 6m 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, 3512 views) Posted: 452d 18h, 51m 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 ...
