The villains seldom see themselves as evil. They tend to feel justified in their actions to do the greater good.

New Poll - Future Villain
This week's fun poll was suggested by jacob66. Let's say that you discover a prophecy that you will become the next super villain due to some specific events that will happen. What do you do with this knowledge? Do you believe that the future can be changed with this knowledge? Do you even want to change the future?

New Poll - Long Titles
This week's poll was suggested by LazyReviewer. Generally it's the isekai series that have long titles, but when does it get too long? I don't know what the actual longest title is, but here's an example of a long one: Isekai Shoukansareta Kita Seijo-sama ga "Kareshi ga Shinda" to Naku Bakari de Hataraite kuremasen. Tokorode Sono Shinda Kareshi, Zense no Ore desu ne.

New Poll - Transmigrated Into Book World
This week's poll was suggested by Nyxsha and deals with the ever-growing genre of transmigration. The poll specifically deals with being taken to a book world. How would you like your memory to be? (Or realistically, how good is your memory?) For myself, realistically, if it's the world of Wheel of Time, I'd remember a lot. It's just downhill from there...

Tachiyomi users, please read this.
Hi all,

About 2-3 days ago, we noticed a significant increase in traffic to our API. It appeared to be coming from thousands of individual IPs, each querying for updated status on a single series every few seconds. We initially thought this was an attack, and started blocking IPs. Eventually, we realized these were active user accounts, so we started banning the associated account.

We now believe this wasn't an attack, but rather a misconfigured app or plugin called Tachiyomi. While I'm not very familiar with the app, it turns out it was a reader/tracker which has been decommissioned as of a few days ago. I do not know why that coincided with the uptake in traffic, but it appears a misconfiguration in the app causes it to request status on various series every few seconds. With everyone's client/app doing this at the same time, it causes significant load and we had to take action.

As a result, we have banned some users using this app. If you want your account unbanned, please email myself or lamb (click API to the right to get our email addresses). I would prefer that Tachiyomi fix the app, but it seems the developers do not plan to continue development. As a result, I don't believe this will be resolved.

We're sorry for the inconvenience.

This week's poll was suggested by LazyReviewer. What is your favorite medium for storytelling? Yes, I did separate out movies vs. TV. I think in terms of storytelling, I consume the most in regular old books.
