New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4584 views) Posted: 308d 10h, 52m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Yes, BL reader here too! I'm only saying 'hard choice' after the experience of reading a certain manga done by a certain scanlation team which used a certain word in an interesting (but very erroneous!) way throughout the manga! I truly app ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4584 views) Posted: 311d 4h, 12m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Great question, and hard choice (kind of...)! Ultimately, I feel like it's better to have something than nothing at all. It's probably not the case in reality, but it always feels like there's a shortage of manga of my preferred genre. ...
New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 6205 views) Posted: 317d 13h, 7m ago by Nirhtuc in News
As a yaoi fan, I totally agree! I'm even okay with it if the victim and perpetrator fall in love somehow later on, but not when there's no damage shown in between the action and the romance, and the victim just ignores the crime or forgives the rapist st ...
New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 6205 views) Posted: 317d 13h, 11m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Interesting poll! I voted for the last option, because I think all of these undesirable elements could be key to character and story development. The only things that really piss me off is when characters don't look their age AT ALL (e.g. loli and shota types), ove ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 2612 views) Posted: 323d 16h, 37m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Good poll- think it's very similar to an older poll... I didn't vote, because almost all of these are equally annoying. I prefer adherence to continuation. There's no need to make drastic and/or unexplained sudden changes to anything unless the man ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 3162 views) Posted: 330d 5h, 15m ago by Nirhtuc in News
Lol nice poll this week! As for me, I voted for the first option, but the reality is 'two or more of the above'. First, I despair; then I find the raws and look at the pretty pictures, with my own imaginings of what's going on in the story (usually I am right... ...
New Poll - New Words/Terms
(16 posts, 1850 views) Posted: 337d 4h, 14m 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, 1307 views) Posted: 353d 2h, 5m 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, 1839 views) Posted: 374d 3h, 28m 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, 1741 views) Posted: 380d 15h, 59m 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, 2249 views) Posted: 388d 13h, 11m 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, 4483 views) Posted: 402d 8h, 59m 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, 2228 views) Posted: 415d 12h, 10m 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
(18 posts, 2242 views) Posted: 423d 4h, 47m 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, 2019 views) Posted: 430d 9h, 23m 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, 1811 views) Posted: 436d 14h, 38m 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, 3056 views) Posted: 444d 7h, 5m 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, 2922 views) Posted: 450d 11h, 35m 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, 199099 views) Posted: 451d 3h, 46m 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, 3414 views) Posted: 458d 8h, 51m 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, 3074 views) Posted: 464d 13h, 39m 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, 1794 views) Posted: 469d 2h, 33m 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, 4566 views) Posted: 500d 4h, 17m 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, 1075 views) Posted: 507d 2h, 30m 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, 1737 views) Posted: 513d 3h, 30m 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). ...
