|New Poll - Drinking
(30 posts, 361 views) Posted: 12 days ago by tactics in News
I'll have the occasional drink now and then.
Gone are my days of drinking to get drunk. Now I either drink because I just fancy something with a kick or it's social drinking.
I usually casually drink Sake or Yuzu at home, and beers when I'm socialis ...
|New Poll - Buying Online vs Physical Store
(8 posts, 745 views) Posted: 3 months ago by tactics in News
It's around 50-50. Probably more in store than online back in the day but I have been getting more things online, especially figurines, this past year.
I say in store but it's mostly at expo's where I get the base of my merch collection. There is little ar ...

Probably around about 10 years. I believe I started when I was 15. I've been registered on this site for 9 years...

|New Poll - Scanlate or Not?
(9 posts, 914 views) Posted: 5 months ago by tactics in News
Already do. Granted it's nowhere near how much I used to do when I was back in school but I still do an odd clean or redraw for certain series.
I originally started to give back to the community but I also learnt a lot more about Photoshop thanks to the years ...
|New Poll - Hidden Hobby?
(15 posts, 1418 views) Posted: 8 months ago by tactics in News
I don't go out of my way to tell people about it but if it comes up in a conversation then yeah I'll say I like it. I admit to being a massive nerd and I don't really care what people think about it. It's a big part of who I am so if someone has an iss ...
|New Poll - Good, bad, and the Ugly
(40 posts, 3171 views) Posted: 9 months ago by tactics in News
I went for bad, okay, great in the end.
It's so disappointing to read a manga with a great beginning for it to slowly fall from grace. I decided on a bad beginning because usually these days I don't read stories that have freshly started, so if I know it gets be ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise 2
(15 posts, 1396 views) Posted: 9 months ago by tactics in News
Defo not enough space.
I don't really care what others think. I'm at that age where I have my group of friends who all know what I like and know I'm a massive nerd. Why should I not make my room reflect my interests if it makes me happy? It' ...
|New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise
(12 posts, 1104 views) Posted: 10 months ago by tactics in News
It's mostly figurines that I get these days, but I did go through a keychain/poster phase at one point.
Bought a few more DVD/blu-ray's recently when the sales were too good to ignore as well.
I have a few plushies but they're mostly from the Po ...
|New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2637 views) Posted: 11 months ago by tactics in News
I mean, sure I watched the pokemons and the digimons and the yugiohs on TV but they're not the reason I got into anime/manga. I wasn't even aware "anime" existed as a kid. It wasn't until one day I stumbled across a manga online ...
|New Poll - Conventions

I go to about 3-4 a year. It's a great opportunity to meet up and hang out with my friends for the day while being the bunch of nerds we are. ...
|New Poll - Piece of Crap
(27 posts, 2946 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by tactics in News
Sometimes what people deem as "crappy anime" actually turns out to be rather entertaining. Sure, the narrative needs work, the character's are a bit flat etc but sometimes I don't feel like watching an anime with in-depth characterisation ...
|New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 3018 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by tactics in News
It did a 180. Used to read/watch so many harems or settings where the male protagonist gets some sort of power or something in his life changes etc.
Now if the protagonist is an "ordinary high school boy" I am automatically no longer interested.
I wan ...
|New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 3231 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by tactics in News
I read and own a fair few, from Marvel & DC to independent comics. I don't follow any though apart from a series called Saga. I prefer to read contained graphic novels as well. Comics aren't as easily accessible as manga online, so I have to b ...
|Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 2625 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by tactics in Manga General
I started because I wanted to give back to the community, but I continue because 1. I like the people I work with (and I've made some great friends along the way) and 2. I've learnt so many new things in Photoshop that I've been able to apply outs ...
|New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 2623 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by tactics in News
So-so for sure. It's gotten to the point now where I'm only reading a few series that are still going. Certainly not looking to start reading anything new. I know I haven't been keeping up with all the releases for the series on my reading list as well h ...
|New Poll - Two Page Spreads in Scanlations
(18 posts, 3321 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in News
C'mon don't be lazy. I've redrawn every spread that's come my way, and I've had some real problematic ones before, but I always felt it was worth it. It looks so much nicer.
I get it if it's a speed release or th ...

|New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 6211 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in News
I'm gonna have to say no, it's not better than no release at all. Shoddy editing can be endured to an extent, but shitty translations that are in broken english can't. ...
|New Poll - Sickness
(16 posts, 2197 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in News
I still go about my day as usual, but instead of drinking tea/coffee, I swap it out for a hot honey and lemon drink, which helps me to get rid of a cold completely within 3 days usually. ...
|New Poll - Genders and Games
(23 posts, 3946 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in News
Eh I'm kind of 50/50 on this one. Sometimes I feel like playing as a female, sometimes I'll choose a male character. I guess I lean towards female generally when I think about it tho.
Something that helps make the decision quicker is whether romancing ...
|New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(29 posts, 7399 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in News
I usually skip both most of the time. Sometimes I'll watch the OP once and then skip it, sometimes I don't bother to watch it at all. I never bother with the ED's. I don't know why, but I don't. I think there was only one series I used to watc ...

(5 posts, 860 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by tactics in Chatter Box
Yeah I agree that the ending was good. 'Twas super sad because you know he wasn't just talking in terms of the relationship between the characters. I thought it was pretty clever, the way they made it into a tribute and fitted it into the plot really well a ...

I don't read as much manga as I used to, the days of binging are over. So if I want to stop reading something, I will just stop. I like to finish the chapter I'm reading though. ...

This first thing that popped into my mind was Fuuka lol.
Most of the time I continue reading, but I'm getting really bad at following things recently so I'll stop reading it for a while then continue later when I remember. ...
