What type of cellphone do you have?

None \o/

Cellphone free for over 6 years now (before that a generic cheap pre-paid motorola as a 'requirement' for uni.) ...
New Poll - Crying
(48 posts, 1319 views) Posted: 137d 14h, 6m ago by Joentjuh in News
Clannad, liked the anime better than the VN, if only for the pacing (but they both complement each other very well).

Fuko was brilliant, and the balance between comedy, tragedy, and drama was very well kept. ...

Neverwinter MMO, but I'm dropping it till the next campaign is out (they brought the drop-rates down and it has gotten really boring lately). Note, I play it like a (mostly) single-player game, and I'm not one for mindless repetition for meagre rewards.

Ah w ...

I Follow Rivers by Lykke Li


Good song, but I much prefer the Triggerfinger cover, or as a close second the Magician Remix... Both make the original kind of bland imo. ...

I'm one of those rare few (at 26) that doesn't have one. Never saw the need for it.
Might buy a cheap one in the near future for work though... ...

What turns you off... about a manga.

Bad/ugly art
Bad/nonsensical plot
Annoying stereotypical characters
Character template (one face + slightly different hairstyle for many characters)
Overly big eyes
Cerebus effect

Repeating content

Look for Lisa Gerrard ("Now We Are Free" finale from Gladiator), The "A Thousand Roads" album with Jeff Rona is also quite good. ...

New Poll - RPG Class
(43 posts, 2826 views) Posted: 486d 1h, 30m ago by Joentjuh in News
I try to rotate, but it depends on the gameplay, possibilities, and available class actions.
I usually prefer something along the lines of battle-mage though... Yay for overkill AoE spells, yet still being able to dally about on the frontlines ^.^ (poking critters with a stick).

Sadly ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 13041 views) Posted: 536d 3h, 15m ago by Joentjuh in News
Shounen-ai (and thus also Yaoi), not that I dislike that particular genre, but I dislike the 'culture' that surrounds it. The constant need for stereotyping everything, rarely have I read a shounen-ai manga where the two leading characters are actually ' ...
New Poll - Non-Manga Reading
(23 posts, 1992 views) Posted: 584d 8h, 55m ago by Joentjuh in News
Used to read about as much manga as I read novels... That all changed when I bought an eReader and (later) discovered fanfiction ^.^
Now I've fallen so far behind on many anime and manga that I'm not sure if I'll even bother catching up (if I ha ...

Interested in a Scanlation Application?
(5 posts, 762 views) Posted: 623d 7h, 6m ago by Joentjuh in Manga General
I've had this thought for a while no (but no ambition to actually act upon it), but wouldn't it be nice if there was an 'interactive' Manga reader/editor.

Think the way you watch movies, there are separate tracks for audio, video, and subtitles. ...
What TV Shows Do You Watch?
(225 posts, 19051 views) Posted: 656d 11h, 13m ago by Joentjuh in Chatter Box
- QI
- Top Gear (though couldn't care less about the cars bigrazz )
Both shows are British

And that's about it. I'm underwhelmed with what catches my attention when browsing the web (rarely watch a series beyond the second episode). I'd much ...
Good mangas that deal with taboos

Quote from TaoPaiPai
male 10yo thingking about sex with his hot teacher = normal
girl 10yo thinking about sex with her hot teacher = sick and gets easily turned into a discussion about pedophilia


... Just, no.
Neither situation is normal, or should be.

I can sort of understa ...

IS - Otoko demo Onna demo Nai Sei, at least in my opinion. Not that it taught me anything new (in fact, I was under the impression that it was even MORE common than indicated), but it brought the issue into focus and made me think, realising that the situation where I ...
Longest Playing Time
(11 posts, 660 views) Posted: 687d 8h, 10m ago by Joentjuh in Games
Single sitting: ±32 hours SW-KotOR (start to finish, highest difficulty)
I don't think I'll be braking that record anytime soon... Playing 10 hours straight has already become quite tiring for me (and that is if I can find the time).

Most hours spent playing a ...
Human changes into monster and sides with them
(23 posts, 3912 views) Posted: 688d 6h, 50m ago by Joentjuh in I'm Looking For...
I'll have to disagree with Nausicaä.
She neither becomes a monster or sides with "monsters". She simply is/becomes a force of balance, on the side of life.
There definitely is a heavy moral lesson in there (if you're interested), and it' ...
It's definitely Yuri.
(5 posts, 882 views) Posted: 694d 3h, 14m ago by Joentjuh in Candy (SUZUKI Yufuko)
Actually, I don't quite see the point of two separate "lesbian" genres at all.

Shoujo-ai is supposedly the base genre for lesbian romance, subtext, and annoyingly often even just for side characters with (minor) lesbian tendencies.
Yuri is shoujo-ai to ...
Reading manga on Mobile Phone
(33 posts, 4099 views) Posted: 694d 10h, 10m ago by Joentjuh in Manga General
Since I often find even my 15" laptop screen too small, I sincerely doubt I'd be able to get used to, much less enjoy, reading manga on a 10" or smaller tablet.
I don't like having to zoom or scroll, and prefer to read in double-page mode... Som ...

Hex-a-hop... until it became too difficult,
then Torchlight 2... but it's repetitive, boring, and a colossal waste of time. Sadly, also highly addictive bigrazz

Same here, when using Firefox, but only when visiting a specific manga series (everything else seems to work fine).

Oddly enough I get the correct page when I wget it, or use ye olde console webbrowser (e)Links.
