New Poll - From Anime to Manga
(11 posts, 237 views) Posted: 3 months ago by kaloo in News
These days I get about 3 episodes into a show then I go read the manga. Or maybe the light novel.
New Poll - Differences in the English Language
(12 posts, 302 views) Posted: 4 months ago by kaloo in News
In general I think it's unneeded, but I do occasionally see very "American" localizations, which I imagine can be hard to follow. The sort that replace cultural references, convert monetary values, etc. (I don't much care for that degree of locali...
New Poll - Sustenance with Manga

I'm not going to eat a proper meal, but I'll get something snacky
New Poll - Partner's Interests
(25 posts, 415 views) Posted: 7 months ago by kaloo in News
This in particular doesn't matter, but I want to share at least one or two hobbies with anyone I'm serious about.
New Poll - Localized Names
(39 posts, 595 views) Posted: 7 months ago by kaloo in News
I'm torn. A lot of my favorites when I was younger were very localized and I remember them fondly, but I prefer as little localization as possible.

I'm annoyed enough at them flipping the name order to Given Name-Family Name
New Poll - What Came Before
(20 posts, 395 views) Posted: 7 months ago by kaloo in News
They're cool, but I almost never read them if they come out after.

I'll usually read the one shot if it's randomly in at the end of a volume though.
New Poll - Hobbies
(13 posts, 392 views) Posted: 10 months ago by kaloo in News
I'm ashamed to admit this but it was one of the first things that actually explained the rules to me. I was apparently just supposed to understand how downs worked.
New Poll - Anime Songs
(10 posts, 303 views) Posted: 10 months ago by kaloo in News
Sometimes, but usually a nostalgic thing, like listening to some Initial D tracks or random Naruto opening.

But enough that the playlists Spotify auto-generates toss in some random jpop tracks.
New Poll - Colored Series Re-Release
(13 posts, 457 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in News
Colorized stuff is usually bad.
New Poll - Original vs Adaptation
(11 posts, 362 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in News
I pretty much always go with the original version. If it was a novel I want the novel. If it was a manga I want the manga. If it was an anime I want the anime. I might look at an adaptation if it's something I like or if it's something I didn't re...
New Poll - Hogwarts House
(16 posts, 483 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in News
I voted I don't understand, but really I just don't care. I read these books when I was kid. They aren't relevant. I didn't even care when the last one came out, though I did read that.
New Poll - Legal Digital Manga
(14 posts, 421 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in News
The thing that gets to me is that a lot of the official sites don't distinguish things.

Let's look at Webtoon as an example. If I want to read a Korean webtoon I just have to know that something is by looking on a site like this one, because on Web...
MangaUpdates 15th Anniversary
(83 posts, 1774 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in News
I've considered leaving this site. Going someplace more ubiquitous like MAL. Even duplicated my lists from here to other places, but this really is the site I always come back to.
sports manga with good bit of romance
(1 posts, 140 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in I'm Looking For...
Just go with anything by ADACHI Mitsuru.

Cross Game is probably the most memorable?
Joined MU Over 10 years ago!
(21 posts, 829 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by kaloo in Chatter Box
12 for me apparently. I still remember when I decided my text file of manga I was reading became too much for me.

Wish I'd been as confused by anime I was watching. Trying to join MAL or something seems so intimidating since I've seen so many thing...
New Poll - Manga Hiatus
(21 posts, 2503 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by kaloo in News
Few months, though I was just reading novels and watching movies, so it's not like I was doing something productive.
Manga to cheer me up?i need something
(7 posts, 766 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by kaloo in I'm Looking For...
Yotsubato! is by far the cutest most cheerful thing,

P x P is a short but fluffy story.
New Poll - Skipping to the End
(20 posts, 3113 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by kaloo in News
Only if it's something that I don't feel interested enough to read, but want to know the ending. Ongoing things I read that drug out and lost my interest for example. (IE Naruto)
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(26 posts, 4487 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by kaloo in Manga General
As far as honorifics go... We do that in business also. Generally just using -san because I was told not using an honorific isn't acceptable and using Mr Name is too formal... Also in foreign internet correspondence gender is one of those details ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 3565 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by kaloo in News
Personality Shift for sure. When the happy go lucky protagonist turns dark and gritty murder man or vice versa that kills it for me.
Why is old manga unpopular?
(32 posts, 4641 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by kaloo in Manga General
It's not inferior, though the older art is generally less refined. The style of the 90s is different from the style of today. And back in the 80s most of the shounen characters were musclebound monsters. The older stuff has characters with all sor...
New Release Policy - Completed Novel Chapters Only
(27 posts, 4111 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by kaloo in News
I mean that is almost the same situation. The web novel release is like chapters 1-5 and the light novel rolls those all into a combined Chapter 1 with multiple parts.
New Release Policy - Completed Novel Chapters Only
(27 posts, 4111 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by kaloo in News
I dislike these on everything, except when it is actually up to date and that's how the original is being released.

Why are you letting people post releases for part of a manga chapter?
New Poll - Web Comics
(19 posts, 2705 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by kaloo in News
Oh man. I totally forgot Kubera. I was bummed back when The Company dropped it. I was waiting for the actual releases to catch up. I mean it was so good.
New Poll - Web Novels
(35 posts, 4310 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by kaloo in News
Well really they're serial novels, but those basically aren't a thing these days.
