To say in the video´s introduction that manga are broader, or have more genres (Batman alone is regularly presented in dozens of genres), or that they are deeper rooted in the Japanese culture than "Western" comics (a very broad term too ...
Baka-Updates Anime Closing

2017 will see a LOGH re-adaptation by IG. The anime tv year of 2016 wasn´t the best, or the worst, but the movie side had noteworthy entries.

I just looked up the Nintendo Switch on to see how the retailer is approaching it and then saw 68 reviews. The current rating is 4,5/5. How the hell are these supposed to matter if they are based on a 3 min. trailer? And people wonder why discussions on ...

New Poll - Good and Evil

Hero turning evil is the safe choice but it works, as pure long form villain stories already barely exist and the ones who do weren´t proper villains, most of the time.
Here is a story about the Joker "Going Sane" after Batman goes missing:

Here is an American legal definition of rape. Figure it out (or count the up-votes), and this trashy thread deserves to be locked before it gets any worse:

Listening to a crappy music album (from start to finish) sounds to be very time efficient and passive. Quick low level torture is the best kind. In and out and forgotten.
Define "crappy" though. I constancy try out bad entertainment, how else am i supposed t ...
Bad Translation

No is the only option. Machine translations are an insult to the art-form as a whole, end of story. JoJo Part 4 at least had humans on the other end who fucked it up, these are a legend, but what´s funny about a robot.

Male targeted publications can´t be Smut, that´s a female demographic term.
I remember removing it once from this crap too, so let´s keep our terminology straight. This is also incapable of being Yaoi, so keep the genre box free of both, ok ...

I hope that it weren´t Europeans who flooded the i never have option. My favorite (comic) author Grant Morrison is Scottish, but he (mostly) switch to US publishers in the late 80s.

In the margins, approximate to the sfx, as the original art should be left alone. T ...
