New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 8284 views) Posted: 917d 4h, 40m 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, 8284 views) Posted: 920d 6h, 11m 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

New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 3534 views) Posted: 1054d 5h, 10m 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, 3846 views) Posted: 1177d 16h, 45m 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, 21611 views) Posted: 1332d 17h, 22m 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, 12796 views) Posted: 1396d 16h, 59m 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, 5468 views) Posted: 1410d 19h, 49m 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, 7048 views) Posted: 1418d 17h, 48m 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, 588 views) Posted: 2033d 10h, 29m 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, 4111 views) Posted: 2234d 18h, 26m 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, 1498 views) Posted: 2248d 11h, 27m 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, 5082 views) Posted: 2369d 16h, 40m 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, 50219 views) Posted: 2374d 18h, 11m 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, 50219 views) Posted: 2375d 8h, 5m 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, 50219 views) Posted: 2375d 9h, 17m 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, 50219 views) Posted: 2375d 15h, 9m 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, 50219 views) Posted: 2376d 7h, 28m 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, 589 views) Posted: 2402d 2h, 7m 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, 7198 views) Posted: 2562d 13h, 8m 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, 2981 views) Posted: 2593d 17h, 17m 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, 1178 views) Posted: 2601d 9h, 13m 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, 3964 views) Posted: 2602d 16h, 38m 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, 3616 views) Posted: 2603d 21h, 7m 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, 3964 views) Posted: 2604d 12h, 58m ago by voraciouszest in News
I couldn't possibly manage to vote for my favourite yaoi. There's just so many.... *______* ...
