New Poll - Encouraging More Research
(16 posts, 403 views) Posted: 10d 9h, 54m ago by Shibiusa in News
Well, cultural aspects is a common subject. In so many mangas, something from the japanese culture appears and it's interesting to know more about it. For example, the first time I read about Golden Week, I went to research more about it. Also, I really like ...
New Poll - Web Comics
(19 posts, 508 views) Posted: 21d 5h, 24m ago by Shibiusa in News
I misread this week's poll and I thought it was the same as last week's (with just another option). I do read web comics and quite a few of them. They seem to have different ideas nowadays, while mangas keep repeating the same ideas. I just hate nov ...
New Poll - Sickness
(16 posts, 547 views) Posted: 45d 1h, 50m ago by Shibiusa in News
Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeea! *-*
I love tea. I really don't need an excuse to drink it (xD), but I usually drink some specific tea if I have a cold. My sinusitis has been acting up lately (my usual prevention didn't work this year!), so here I am ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 2467 views) Posted: 58d 5h, 25m ago by Shibiusa in News
I'm glad Skip Beat didn't win. It seems the shoujo fandom isn't that lost nowadays... Because... Best shoujos? None of those that make it to the poll.

Fruits Basket, Kare Kano, Mars, Cat Street (!!!!!), Ludwig Kakumei, Kanata Kara, Yamamoto Zenjiro ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 2467 views) Posted: 66d 0h, 45m ago by Shibiusa in News
What I have to say about this... It doesn't reflect quality. Only fandom. As always... One Piece is not the best shounen. But they have tons of fanboys. Skip Beat is far from being the best shoujo. But, once again, it has tons of fangirls. Oh well... ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 1050 views) Posted: 93d 10h, 54m ago by Shibiusa in News
I only have like... Two volumes? And I won them in contests. I can't buy manga in my country, since it's too expensive. I would rather buy a book than pay the same amount for a manga volume =/ ...
New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 1915 views) Posted: 108d 11h, 59m ago by Shibiusa in News
Meh. Published manga in portuguese (from Portugal) barely exists. I've seen Dragon Ball, Naruto and Death Note. Probably Evangelion. And that's it. Even manga in english is somewhat hard to find around here (only in specialty stores) and I've ...
Suggestion: Hiding undesired sources from "My Lists"
(3 posts, 426 views) Posted: 113d 0h, 14m ago by Shibiusa in Suggestions & Bugs
Yes, please. I have a certain group I wish to hide from my lists as well.

(and I'm pretty sure it's the same as everyone else that supports this suggestion, but that has nothing to do with me...) ...
Mangator Release
(17 posts, 1183 views) Posted: 118d 3h, 3m ago by Shibiusa in Suggestions & Bugs
Quote from Gradonil_Ral
If I may suggest something - instead of dropping the series, why don't you just move them to a custom list and turn off showing new chapters there? Just as a temporary measure before the matter gets resolved...
I know you won' ...
Mangator Release
(17 posts, 1183 views) Posted: 119d 2h, 6m ago by Shibiusa in Suggestions & Bugs
I also came here to see if there was any update regarding this situation. Everyone would be pleased if the admins said anything about this (either allowing, not allowing, opening up for voting/discussion...).

(I also dropped a few series... It's sad) ... - Everything You Should Know
(112 posts, 14111 views) Posted: 140d 5h, 5m ago by Shibiusa in Suggestions & Bugs
I also agree it's not a proper group to have here on MangaUpdates. You wouldn't consider a raw provider website as a scanlation team. You also wouldn't consider Reddit (or any other blog with translations) as such. I've seen spoiler b ...
Mangator Release
(17 posts, 1183 views) Posted: 142d 0h, 32m ago by Shibiusa in Suggestions & Bugs
May I suggest a group filter then? I don't like to see their releases on my lists and I would like to filter them out. I already had to drop a series because I was waiting for scanlations and then that suddenly appeared... I honestly tried, but I can't stand readin ...
New Poll - In a Fantasy World
(31 posts, 1747 views) Posted: 150d 6h, 15m ago by Shibiusa in News
Honestly, my priority would be food and water along with trying to figure out where I was. I think it's better to know more information about the world and then making a decision about the future. Once I knew enough about that world, I think I would try to learn m ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 11434 views) Posted: 162d 5h, 32m ago by Shibiusa in News
I would also advise to keep webtoons, even if you create a category for them instead of adding them to manhwa. There are too many wonderful korean webtoons, that aren't published for some reason (being on Naver doesn't mean it's publis ...
When was the last time you sat down and read a book?
(514 posts, 51015 views) Posted: 311d 20h, 4m ago by Shibiusa in Chatter Box
Right now, actually. I'm in a reading mood, as it seems. I hate to leave series unfinished, so I try to get the books and read them in a row xD
I've been reading the "Age of the Five" trilogy, by Trudi Canavan. I'm now in the third book, " ...
Have you ever been mistaken for the opposite gender?
(303 posts, 26226 views) Posted: 311d 20h, 10m ago by Shibiusa in Chatter Box
Nope, never happened to me. I always had long hair since I was young and then puberty hit quite early, so there was no way to mistake me for a boy. I have a deep voice, but it seems it's still in the feminine range or so they tell me xD ...
Mangatraders Hacked, and How it Affects MU
(83 posts, 41864 views) Posted: 532d 7h, 32m ago by Shibiusa in News
I believe it's unecessary to change everything here. Only the password if that was shared. My e-mail here and there is the same, but not the password. I won't change a thing. My MangaTraders password is an old one I don't use for years now, ...
How often do you drop mangas?
(18 posts, 960 views) Posted: 620d 22h, 13m ago by Shibiusa in Manga General
I usually don't drop mangas. It actually almost never happened... 23 mangas dropped and I have way more on my lists (I have 471 only on my complete list). I use the "on hold" lists a lot, but now I've been focusing on reading everything I kept ...
Do you have a driving licence?
(24 posts, 1191 views) Posted: 623d 21h, 16m ago by Shibiusa in Chatter Box
Yes, I have a license since I was 19. I could have gotten it one year earlier, but college got in the way (I was studying far from home). In Portugal, you can get a license for cars when you are 18 and the license for motorcycles when you are 16. It has two exams: a ...
What's wrong with mangafox?
(16 posts, 10114 views) Posted: 624d 20h, 5m ago by Shibiusa in Manga General
I believe that it's probably only the US. I've tried accessing with IP's from the UK, Switzerland, US, China, Germany and Portugal and the only one blocked was the one from the US. I don't think it's something dealing with Viz, since Viz ...
What's wrong with mangafox?
(16 posts, 10114 views) Posted: 624d 22h, 11m ago by Shibiusa in Manga General
Oh, they finally got into trouble. I can't say I didn't see that coming. An aggregate site making money out of scanlations (and many of them licensed in some countries)... It was to be expected. I guess the blocked countries are those with the license. I jus ...
Cried at a Game??
(48 posts, 3319 views) Posted: 633d 0h, 38m ago by Shibiusa in Games
Many times, actually xD
I cried with Crysis Core as well. That yell broke my heart, completely. I was already crushed and then that (I played the undub version. Now check it and see if it isn't waaaaaaaaay sadder than the english dub xD).
Final Fantasy X. The e ...
SasuSaku or NaruSaku?
(32 posts, 4278 views) Posted: 752d 20h, 9m ago by Shibiusa in Naruto
Well... I'm not a yaoi fan, but... If I had to guess, I would say it looks like a NaruSasu will most likely be the pairing. That obsession with Sasuke is not normal (as friendship). Even to those that don't read Naruto (or watch the anime), it's quite obvious ...
What's Your Native Language?
(208 posts, 13561 views) Posted: 792d 8h, 39m ago by Shibiusa in Chatter Box
My native language is portuguese. I have foreign family though, so I had contact with english early in my life, even though I only started writing it after I was 6 (when I learned how to write, of course). Till then, I only understood a few words. Right now, I'm fluent ...
Disabled Children - Abortion?
(63 posts, 5012 views) Posted: 964d 18h, 10m ago by Shibiusa in Chatter Box
You guys talk about overcoming the disability and all that. That's really a nice thought. But we have to be realistic. You have no idea how many parents come to me wanting their child to be "normal". They have him/her going to every therapy yo ...
