New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 8175 views) Posted: 889d 8h, 15m ago by voraciouszest in News
I voted for yaoi and it's what I read the most for a few reasons -

1. The men are all attractive, unless they're a side character or a niche character, in which case their personality is attractive in some way. Also, yaoi is not all about the sex. There' ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 8175 views) Posted: 892d 9h, 47m ago by voraciouszest in News
No one's admitting it but we're a strong demographic, so here I go - I love yaoi. Shounen ai too, but mostly yaoi. I also like some seinen and josei, and a rare few shounen and shoujo but it's yaoi that tops the list. ...
New Poll - Crying

Grave of the Fireflies. ...
New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 3497 views) Posted: 1026d 8h, 46m ago by voraciouszest in News
Well, as an editor, there's one thing in the world that never fails to make me want to cry tears of blood - a page full of dust, guttering, screentones, patterns, sfx and complex backgrounds. Yup. All of them in there together. As a proofreader, there is nothing ...
New Poll - Imperfect Art and/or Story
(31 posts, 3810 views) Posted: 1149d 20h, 21m ago by voraciouszest in News
If I wanted a great story without the great art to go with it, I'd read a book. To me, Manga has to at least look good. What's the point of reading a graphic novel otherwise? ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 21425 views) Posted: 1304d 20h, 58m ago by voraciouszest in News
I actually voted for Shoujo, but if I had two votes I'd add Shounen to the mix. Of course, my comments should be taken in general and not directed at any specific series. In general, I hate shoujo the most because it contains a lot of tropes, plot twists and chara ...
New Poll - Visiting Japan
(58 posts, 12690 views) Posted: 1368d 20h, 35m ago by voraciouszest in News
If money was truly not an issue, I'd definitely be buying property. Apartments, homes, businesses, land... Seriously, why aren't more people considering that option? @___@

Get some money under your belt and the rest of that stuff can come later and ...
New Poll - Platonic vs. Romantic
(17 posts, 5433 views) Posted: 1382d 23h, 25m ago by voraciouszest in News
Agreed. So many different factors would impact the choice - character, setting, plot, genre, the particular type of romantic relationship, the gender of the characters...

For me, it's a mixture of all factors, but mostly has to do with the type of romantic relations ...
New Poll - Manga Price
(49 posts, 6991 views) Posted: 1390d 21h, 24m ago by voraciouszest in News
Yeah, I'm living in Australia and the price for manga is overly expensive, given what it is and how quickly it can be read. Not that I've had an extensive look, but never in my life have I seen manga in a bookstore (chains). I tend to purchase mine from on ...
New Poll - Replacing Manga Covers
(9 posts, 584 views) Posted: 2005d 14h, 4m ago by voraciouszest in News
I'm going with my imaginary choice - Sure. But only if the new cover isn't misleading.
Nothing worse than seeing a nice new cover only to flip through the pages and see some manky 1990's stick-figures. ...
Libre Shuppan sending out C&D's
(46 posts, 4064 views) Posted: 2206d 22h, 1m ago by voraciouszest in News
Honestly, I can't help but believe that the first genre to be targeted is yaoi because us girls have always been the easiest to push over. Libre, and certainly the coalition, hopes to make an example of us as a genre to the whole scanlation community. Still, all in ...
Can't wait!
(3 posts, 1486 views) Posted: 2220d 15h, 3m ago by voraciouszest in Akuma wa Hohoemu
It'll definitely be released in English. We're working on it right now at Blissful Sin. It took a while to get the scripts done. All that tiny text... *shudder* But we love Madarame! And Shouta is my absolute favorite character. <3 ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 95 - Eyesight
(53 posts, 5073 views) Posted: 2341d 20h, 15m ago by voraciouszest in Chatter Box
This poll confused me a little. lol. Where I'm from, I'm considered shortsighted (nearsighted) because I can read a book without my glasses on.
So I have glasses because I'm short/nearsighted, but they're for long/farseeing.
Without my g ...
The Lolicon Shotacon Debate
(315 posts, 49708 views) Posted: 2346d 21h, 47m ago by voraciouszest in News
I'd really like to thank you for that post, rainexoxo. You've pretty well summed it up. Though I don't particularly enjoy shotacon because of the girly ukes, I still like and respect the mangaka who create works of these kinds.
I think a lot of people a ...
The Lolicon Shotacon Debate
(315 posts, 49708 views) Posted: 2347d 11h, 41m ago by voraciouszest in News
Essentially, you're ignoring the fact that everyone has their own tastes.
I have never, and would never, be sexually stimulated by the idea of rape, torture, scatology, golden showers, etc. Who's to say that people don't find it sexually stimulating to ...
The Lolicon Shotacon Debate
(315 posts, 49708 views) Posted: 2347d 12h, 53m ago by voraciouszest in News
Then I have to ask you in return - why just children having sex? What's the difference between fictional depictions of children having sex and fictional depictions of a woman getting gang-raped? Quite frankly, there are tons of storylines explored in manga th ...
The Lolicon Shotacon Debate
(315 posts, 49708 views) Posted: 2347d 18h, 45m ago by voraciouszest in News
My point exactly. Safer to cover yourself than rely on the public's 'common' sense. For the most part, people don't need a warning. They'd know it all already. But it's just a safer way of doing things that might keep one' ...
The Lolicon Shotacon Debate
(315 posts, 49708 views) Posted: 2348d 11h, 4m ago by voraciouszest in News
In one way, I'm not surprised that it has come to this in relation to shotacon and lolicon. But in another way, I am surprised by some of the more active protesters. What surprises me is the fact that people are so unbelievably upset by just one tiny facet of the ...
New Poll - Death Note
(14 posts, 576 views) Posted: 2374d 5h, 43m ago by voraciouszest in News
Should I be shocked with the lack of moral standards of the voters this week? lol.
I'd honestly not even think twice about destroying it. Still, I'm not surprised with people's votes. ^_~ ...
wait....its over?
(32 posts, 7173 views) Posted: 2534d 16h, 44m ago by voraciouszest in Nodame Cantabile
I honestly thought the series was dragging on too long, as most do. But the ending... >.>

I'm hoping that the anime and live action adaptions are going to be more complete than that shoddy attempt. *sigh* ...
New Poll - Best Josei
(64 posts, 2966 views) Posted: 2565d 20h, 53m ago by voraciouszest in News
I love Nodame, but I wouldn't bother spending my money on it.
I have bought all the volumes of Kimi wa Pet, though. (: ...
Hiatus or Dropped?
(0 posts, 1173 views) Posted: 2573d 12h, 48m ago by voraciouszest in Ice Eagle Fire Hawk
Does anyone at all have any recent news for this series?

Though I can't say for sure, I'm guessing that it's on hiatus or dropped. Sakurai has released a new tank for Sabaku no Oujisama in the meantime and happens to be working on a new s ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(60 posts, 3927 views) Posted: 2574d 20h, 14m ago by voraciouszest in News
Well, that's not necessarily true. You're completely forgetting that shoujo is a demographic group rather than a genre of work. Skip Beat and Ouran are most definitely created for the shoujo demographic of readers. Shoujo =/= Romance. ...
anime continues!
(16 posts, 3603 views) Posted: 2576d 0h, 43m ago by voraciouszest in Inu Yasha
Yay! It'll start next month. biggrin

Personally, I think the ending will be a lot better in its animated form than it was in print. I hope they don't screw it up, but I probably wouldn't even care... Totally addicted. <3 ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(60 posts, 3927 views) Posted: 2576d 16h, 33m ago by voraciouszest in News
I couldn't possibly manage to vote for my favourite yaoi. There's just so many.... *______* ...
