|What turns you off... about a manga.
(282 posts, 29432 views) Posted: 9d 8h, 37m ago by Joentjuh in Manga General
Annoying stereotypical characters
Character template (one face + slightly different hairstyle for many characters)
Overly big eyes
... or when plot is lost and the manga becomes an Ecchi-fest

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, 2006 views) Posted: 232d 17h, 7m 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).
|New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 9401 views) Posted: 282d 18h, 52m 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, 1468 views) Posted: 331d 0h, 32m 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 ...
|What sorts of people read manga???

Gender: Neither (I simply am, don't really identify with either male or female)
Main Personality Traits: Stubborn, Perfectionist, Minimalist, and 'somewhat' anti-Social
IQ: I' ...
|Interested in a Scanlation Application?
(5 posts, 587 views) Posted: 369d 22h, 43m 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, 16288 views) Posted: 403d 2h, 50m ago by Joentjuh in Chatter Box
- Top Gear (though couldn't care less about the cars )
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 ...

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, 534 views) Posted: 433d 23h, 47m 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, 3224 views) Posted: 434d 22h, 27m 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' ...

(5 posts, 682 views) Posted: 440d 18h, 51m 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 ...

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

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.

There is a whole lot more than just being straight or gay, and being male or female. These four are miles apart and can be combined in varying degrees. (not just homosexual, heterosexual, transsexual, male, an ...

You seem to have a few jumps in your logic:
Believing in (a) God and being pro homosexual marriage (or at least not against it), is not mutually exclusive. Or are you saying that believers can have no opinions of their own?
Also, omnipotence != perfection. The God ...

I'm not sure how things are in Australia, nor do I know what current stance the general populace takes on that subject (in Australia), but I can say that it's been allowed for years, to such a degree that it no longer raises many heads, where I live (Neth ...
