Accepting Nominations for "Best of" Polls
(11 posts, 196 views) Posted: 0d 2h, 31m ago by residentgrigo in News
All sorts of manga with a focus on homosexual relationships were published in general audience magazines with target demographics applied as the Tezuka winning Zankoku na Kami ga Shihaisuru or Tempest to give examples of both so the notion of such isn´ ...
A manga where a hot guy falls for a fat and ugly girl
(4 posts, 271 views) Posted: 2d 16h, 56m ago by residentgrigo in I'm Looking For...
I went by categories only and just looked at all the entries for Fat Female Lead and these should fit the criteria of a genuinely overweight love interest who is also utterly unattractive at the same. Only 1/3 of the tag´s entries lead to entries about overweigh ...
site like this but for comics (and OEL)
(1 posts, 150 views) Posted: 4d 22h, 0m ago by residentgrigo in Chatter Box
Comicvine is the biggest one and useded by the industry insiders too.
Good database focused wikias also exist (DC´s is pretty helpful) but that is a given. I also just discovered that the word "Manfra" exists and these are as dead as OELs. Can´ ...
the mangaka died, and now?
(9 posts, 548 views) Posted: 5d 2h, 42m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
It depends on the popularity and how much rights the author/the estate held on to.
Tezuka´s manga are still getting all sorts of spin-offs yet none (thankfully) ever touched his Hi no Tori in manga form so respect can play a role to. Adaptations as the Itazura ...
Doing research on scanlation
(5 posts, 199 views) Posted: 6d 18h, 53m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
Spiegelman´s Maus or Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths were part of the "comic book medium" the last time i checked and we also have loli/shota listed as demographics (have fun exporting those) so you can write about whateven you wa ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 484 views) Posted: 8d 6h, 13m ago by residentgrigo in News
One would need to be in pretty deep to take part in a poll by a manga tracking website so the low number of newbies makes sense.

I used to buy them from a local smaller retailer who ordered them based on the ISBN but i switched to the first 2 online options in th ...
Shingeki no Kyojin film
(10 posts, 4682 views) Posted: 12d 3h, 43m ago by residentgrigo in Shingeki no Kyojin
The movie is indeed terrible and i got me irritated and angry a lot so just read Brian Ashcraft´s Kotaku review. None of the changes work and the acting and directing are mostly horrible so only the fine yet somewhat baffling (they are in the SS now?) sets ...
Military with 'real feeling of war'
(10 posts, 614 views) Posted: 12d 21h, 36m ago by residentgrigo in I'm Looking For...
Sample my sizable selection in the manga centered on soldier at war thread.
I also used to be a soldier (i saw no combat) and i can tell you that most picks have nothing to do with the reality of combat/military life as it isn´t as flashy or exciting as one might t ...
New Poll - Anime/Manga and You
(19 posts, 625 views) Posted: 13d 20h, 37m ago by residentgrigo in News
Both are an ongoing hobby since the mid 90s and my manga reading list grows every year as new series come out yet old ones are still in scanlation. My anime habits fluctuate as i have finished all of my backlog 3 years ago and thus need to rely on new shows.

Why is there still a lot of untranslated Tezuka work?
(3 posts, 209 views) Posted: 19d 16h, 18m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
Yep. It´s impossible to make money with such old series regardless of quality or importance so official translations now need to be crowd funded. Scanlations would have very few people reading or even caring (i had to polish up so many MU entries...) due ...

Do mind the wording and don´t burry them just yet as none but Uncle Ben stays dead in comic books or so the saying goes wink .

Your favorite action manga?
(9 posts, 403 views) Posted: 20d 17h, 36m ago by residentgrigo in I'm Looking For...
Shi ga Futari o Wakatsu Made is Batman without a cape and should be the best manga that focuses on pure action. It stands out due to great art direction / choreography, a lot of variety regarding the settings and characters not usually covered in Japanese media ...
New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 1179 views) Posted: 21d 23h, 57m ago by residentgrigo in News
I live in Germany which has one of the most worldwide famous and alive book markets (as much print is "alive" these days) so in most major book stores would be an understatement. I blame it all on Johannes Gutenberg.
I am pretty sure that more m ...

Latest movie(s) you've seen?

Superhero round: Ant-Man could have been an Iron Man 2 or worse with that production but it turned out to be the best Marvel Studios origin movie since their very first. It even has the same messy third act as Ironman! Hank Pym is the more interesting (anti)-hero in ...
Why Anime Cesoring drastic in some but not in others.
(6 posts, 332 views) Posted: 25d 6h, 0m ago by residentgrigo in Chatter Box
This is a marketing move to sell discs. At least 2/3 of anime are midnight productions only (so they are borderline OVAs) and thus need to shift Blue Ray to be profitable. If you saw all the show has to offer you will be less likely to buy it all. End of story (for the most ...
Why do chicks in Shojo Manga have no tits?
(202 posts, 38475 views) Posted: 27d 7h, 24m ago by residentgrigo in Shoujo/Josei
Kayono is a real author (not that she has integrity or talent) and even the innocent and very successful Ore Monogatari!! has Yamato big bust as a plot point so i don´t get how this topic is on page 14 besides the inflammatory headline.
Our Big Breasts tag als ...

What song are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Interstellar may not be the new 2001 but i noticed more and more while listening to the OST while reading that it is Hans Zimmer´s best score. Here is a highlight reel.

Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2096 posts, 521585 views) Posted: 30d 17h, 9m ago by residentgrigo in Manga General
It seems that it is becoming impossible to have a popular series without crossovers, specials and most importantly spin-off that have (almost) nothing to do with continuity so i ask the question: Are spin-offs worth it?

Manga need to be standalone tales
One is fine if it is ...
