New Poll - Hating Art
(32 posts, 4050 views) Posted: 1080d 19h, 3m ago by Mierten in News
With "hating the artwork," one of the best compliments for a series is that even when it is a style of artwork that you hate, you still really like the series.
I do like how there is so much variety in styles of art. ...
New Poll - Preferred Manga Consumption Method
(17 posts, 1823 views) Posted: 1680d 18h, 12m ago by Mierten in News
I have several series ththat I have both them electronically and printed. Which do I read -- electronic on computer. One series is still in its original shipping wrapper. I am glad the author gets credit but I don't have to remember which book shelf it is on and when ...
New Poll - Drama in Romance
(9 posts, 1037 views) Posted: 1710d 20h, 18m ago by Mierten in News
There isn't an option for: Depends on series/mangaka
Some do it better than others.
There still can be limits though.
After all, when the plot twists become as contrived as an American soap opera or a Mexican telenovela, it is too much.
At some point, it bec ...
New Poll - Difference of Art
(14 posts, 1045 views) Posted: 1724d 2h, 43m ago by Mierten in News
I find a bigger difference in plot line. Manwha seems to hop all over the place and be jumpy. I've seen manga do it too but less often. ...
Another Group Gone: KEFI
(37 posts, 3175 views) Posted: 1765d 20h, 16m ago by Mierten in News
what kills a group isn't web issues ... it is usually lack of staff. You expect some turnover and if no one is there to take their place, the group dies.
Thus, if you don't want to see your favorite group die, perhaps learn Photoshop or Gimp (which is free)? ...
New Poll - Scanlation Groups and Their Projects
(24 posts, 2164 views) Posted: 1803d 17h, 26m ago by Mierten in News
There is a special place in heaven for scanlation groups that specialize in wrapping up dropped series. For instance, A Willful Muse. I may not like all of the series that they choose but I still cheer everytime I see their releases. ...
New Poll - Cooking up Manga

Missing: Haven't yet but want to
P.S. Don't read What Did You Eat Yesterday hungry. It makes the hunger worse. ...
New Poll - Secret Manga Reader
(13 posts, 686 views) Posted: 1912d 17h, 3m ago by Mierten in News
As hinted by the yaoi reader above, how much do you change what you read based upon where you are. For instance, it seems that every time I decide to read Ice Blade, I am sitting in an airplane next to some 10 year old. ...
Update to Series Comments
(50 posts, 2573 views) Posted: 1937d 20h, 20m ago by Mierten in News
The centering in titles and genre is going overboard. They are easier to read when they are left aligned.
Thanks for keeping the site going and up-to-date. ...
New Poll - Original vs. Adaptation
(22 posts, 1554 views) Posted: 1955d 12h, 7m ago by Mierten in News
Ever see the movie Princess Bride? Ever read the book. I've done both and I'll be the first to tell you that there are significant changes between the two. However, the author whom also adapted the book to the movie script realized that retaining the to ...
Remembering Franky House
(44 posts, 5175 views) Posted: 1961d 4h, 53m ago by Mierten in News
Some groups go out with a bang, some with a wimper. Seems that this group had its own set of fireworks.
Also find it bemusing that trying to visit their web site gets blocked by my spyware blocker. ...
April Fools' Day Warning
(24 posts, 1601 views) Posted: 1979d 15h, 8m ago by Mierten in News
If they have that much time, scanlate the next chapter of a series and put the spoofs in there as extras. For instance, in a One Piece chapter, have sketches of how the characters would look if they were drawn by different mangaka. ...
New Poll - Anime/Manga for Lent
(22 posts, 1624 views) Posted: 1989d 11h, 25m ago by Mierten in News
Giving up something personal, like the time you spend on manga, whether it be for Lent or another religeous purpose only has true meaning when you use that time instead for other purposes that benefits others.
Otherwise, it is nothing more than a New Years res ...
New Poll - Localization
(5 posts, 418 views) Posted: 1998d 18h, 19m ago by Mierten in News
Do you know someone in Japan during this Earthquake: Yes, they are OK, Yes, haven't heard but they should be OK, Yes, waiting to hear or No.
In events like these, facebook is handy just to get a message like "My floor is now a mess". ...
Is Viz discontinuing Kurohime??
(11 posts, 4696 views) Posted: 2002d 16h, 50m ago by Mierten in Kurohimé
Volume 15 came out in January 2010 so I don't think this is discontinued. ...
beelzebub how much romance???
(27 posts, 12520 views) Posted: 2193d 19h, 35m ago by Mierten in Beelzebub
... and if you don't get enough romance in the main series, just wait until the DJ's come out. Then, you'll get your romance, and ever so much more. ...
New Feature - Group Filtering
(71 posts, 4429 views) Posted: 2216d 17h, 44m ago by Mierten in News
I saw it. I liked it.
Have you considered a series by series version of it. Using the example of the group which does several series I like but one that just doesn't appeal. ...

New Poll - When Do You Start?
(20 posts, 968 views) Posted: 2350d 20h, 8m ago by Mierten in News
When I come across a series that looks appealing, I decide then, do I start reading it now and bemoan the length of time until the next chapter's release? Or do I wait until it is done and then read it. The ones in the 2nd category are put into my wish list. When th ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 86 - Doujinshi
(33 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 2424d 12h, 9m ago by Mierten in Chatter Box
It is not like there is only one type of doujinshi.
After all, some are figuring out how to draw manga.
Some are the mangaka adding another tidbit to the main story that didn't fit in the first round.
Some are just seeing whom can be with whom (in bed, with variou ...

Site Poll - Chat Box 78 - Authors Branching Out
(21 posts, 2773 views) Posted: 2475d 16h, 45m ago by Mierten in Manga General
At a certain point, it is a case of getting out of a rut.
After all, if you do Shoujo manga, you will find yourself going through the motions after a while and not coming up with anything new (or memorable).
If that mangaka tries a sports manga as a change, they will be ...
New Poll - Endings that Suck
(40 posts, 2104 views) Posted: 2521d 18h, 54m ago by Mierten in News
Keep in mind that the authors themselves are under pressure for the timeing of the ending. Thus, they will create abrupt endings when the publisher tells them to.
Conversely, they will stretch out a series because their editor/publisher don't want it to end. We' ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(60 posts, 3827 views) Posted: 2549d 20h, 41m ago by Mierten in News
As Ouran shows, the ones in the process of being released with unsatisfied fangirls has a headstart on completed ones. The real way to know would be to only have ones that were completely published/scanlated 2 or more years ago -- then you would be measu ...
