New Poll - Publication Frequency
(8 posts, 118 views) Posted: 0d 6h, 31m ago by residentgrigo in News
I meant "irreguar publication" with my original option When it's done, which is an agreed upon slang for that, so the (interesting) "The entire series in one go" ended up being a major change if that is how you interpreted it. Unless it wa ...

I deliberate wait multiple month between submitting poll ideas and occasionally look at the backlog for "missing" ones but my next turn is indeed in the future. 1/50 of MU users always start with the ending and 1/3 just need the right circumstances. Intere ...
Why is old manga unpopular?

So this is where the pm questions came from.
US comics utterly collapsed in the 90 and Marvel even went bankrupt. Watch this 13 part web documentary for the cliff notes version (just browse his channel for the rest).
This amazing documentary further talks about ...
New Poll - Skipping to the End
(20 posts, 504 views) Posted: 7d 17h, 39m ago by residentgrigo in News
And now we know where all the spin-offs are coming from but their numbers are always only a fraction of the main product. They can´t all be Xena (meh) to bring up another more successful spin-off.

Never if i am reading/watching/playing something i ac ...

This would be the point where i make a Bruce Wayne analogy, who himself is the mask, but i will mention instead that you could buy 2 of these and tag team away for that “extra awesome” factor cool . I wonder how many male customers they get?

What irritates you in general?
(1489 posts, 191547 views) Posted: 8d 20h, 23m ago by residentgrigo in Chatter Box
I will go with Baalzebup´s answer as nothing else irritates me more than a true hypocrite. There are obviously worse crimes but living by double standards is an immediate short cut on my shit list. I also hate false friendliness and vapid promises but that´ ...
What song are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

David Bowie´s greatest hits for the obvious reasons.
I find it highly impressive that he managed to release a truly good last album on what proved to be his deathbed and that he stayed relevant to the end. I will best remember him for all the Metal Gear chara ...

Updates about completed series

New Releases of a subscribed series all get highlighted regardless of the list you chose and the "completed" even get the usual green V next to them so they stand out double.
You will have to look out for yourself but you won´t miss a beat if yo ...

Is manga scanlation coming to an end?
(6 posts, 534 views) Posted: 13d 9h, 10m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
I set the releases page to just manga thank to a script and looked at the last 5 years of releases for 10 minutes around January the 1st (jump by 130 and narrow down from there).
The amount stayed very constant with no real treads so the scene settled into a con ...
How to treat "orginal" doujunshi
(3 posts, 169 views) Posted: 13d 9h, 59m ago by residentgrigo in Suggestions & Bugs
The approval of titles is ultimately an administrative matter and this is how MU defines Doujunshi in the FAQ:
"Doujinshi" are fan created works that use characters from popular series to create new plots and stories. Typically, but not always, thes ...
How to treat "orginal" doujunshi
(3 posts, 169 views) Posted: 13d 13h, 26m ago by residentgrigo in Suggestions & Bugs
Doujunshi that tell a wholly original story are treated as proper "manga" on MU.
The ones you link to have Manga / Manhwa in the field Type and lack a dj in the title. The related series are all by the same author too so you linked to properly set up exam ...
Is manga scanlation coming to an end?
(6 posts, 534 views) Posted: 13d 15h, 28m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
The amount of manga on my reading list in active scanlation is currently @ a historical peak.
US scanners are further ripping official releases like never before (which admittedly ended a few high profile scanlation projects as they were no longer "needed" ...
Does anyone else here dislike Bleach and Naruto like I do?
(180 posts, 26029 views) Posted: 13d 16h, 35m ago by residentgrigo in Shounen/Seinen
I reviewed both. To sum up: Bleach´s (4/10) reign of quality, if a B- can be called that, didn´t last that long and it became unreadable money printing years ago.
Naruto´s (7,5/10) 3rd act -Ninja War III- may have been a mess but was still readable ...
Ai in shounen?Shounen ai?
(6 posts, 1716 views) Posted: 13d 16h, 53m ago by residentgrigo in Shounen/Seinen
I ain´t the biggest fan of the way (most) Japanese writers treat non-heterosexual characters or the topic in general and Shounen is indeed the demographic most likely NOT to feature male love (pornographic lesbians though roll eyes ). Such elements also te ...

B is the way to go but not how some of you might think.
Gunnm never went bad and had 3 distinct acts but the narrative ended way before the author wanted. He came back a few years later and wrote the last stretch out of existence and continued from there. The ...
What do you prefer more in Shounen?
(6 posts, 1152 views) Posted: 13d 17h, 21m ago by residentgrigo in Shounen/Seinen
Action i guess? It is the lifeblood of Shounen after all.
My favorite Shounen manga is Rurouni Kenshin and action was a main element but i like most genres equally and the best stories serve multiple masters.
Dear Ecchi option. Eff you in 99,5/100 cases. ...
strongest character nowadays
(140 posts, 17293 views) Posted: 13d 17h, 29m ago by residentgrigo in Shounen/Seinen
The Goku option is missing and he is the strongest manga character there even was.
Very few fictional characters as Superman or actual deities can beat him so i will have to go with Naruto and Luffy as the runner up.

How the hell is Guts supposed to stand a cha ...

I also expected the George Lucas "Special Edition" to have a noticeable lead but more may agree with some of what i said in the last poll than one would think. There has also been a noticeable uptake of US rippers who now also scan official manga tr ...
