New Poll - World Ruler
(50 posts, 626 views) Posted: 2 months ago by MangaGhost in News
Nope. Managing and motivating people is very hard, and requires a level of interaction that my introverted nature is not well equipped to handle on a continuous basis. Better to work for change on a smaller scale in your community, neighborhood or...
New Poll - Purpose of Prisons
(23 posts, 524 views) Posted: 5 months ago by MangaGhost in News
Same here, didn't vote because its poorly worded. I also think it should be rehabilitation first, and deterrence second, incapacitation third. However, in rare cases I believe that there are some crimes that may be too heinous that retribution is ...

I agree and why I didn't vote.
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1160 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Somebody seems to have missed the point, which is not that Megalobox was a worthy successor to Ashita no Joe or that it was popular. All shows are going to have their fans and their detractors. Plenty of people love NGE, many people detest it. Lot...
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1160 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Well...sometimes there is, if we are talking about old properties. It might have been good for the time, maybe even considered a classic, but it looks outdated and a new makeover can attract a new generation of viewers. This is why you get Space B...
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1160 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I'm always willing to give it a chance. Sometimes the original anime didn't have much to work with because there wasn't enough of the manga out, so it went in a different direction or had anime original endings. FMA (2003) and Hellsing (2001) are ...
New Poll - Alcohol
(34 posts, 1010 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Only on the holidays and usually wine with the rare hard liquor. Don't like most beer as it tastes like crap.

Alcohol was never some kind of taboo or super restricted thing growing up in my family, so it wasn't some kind of forbidden thing that wo...
New Poll - Spoiled Ending
(14 posts, 603 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
There's a lot of stories where the ending has been disappointing to me, but there was enough good stuff in the overall story that I still enjoyed it and it wouldn't be enough for me to drop it if I was spoilered. Also you have to be careful that y...
New Poll - Past vs. Present Favorites
(13 posts, 513 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I still like them just the same or I like my old and new favorites about the same. Really the list of favorites grows longer the more years I read, but it grows slowly because not everything out there is good. There's a lot of mediocre stuff that'...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2913 posts, 842297 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in Manga General
Don't know if this one has been done before. Similar to the Supernatural Poll. Lots of Manga with Aliens in them.

Do you believe there is other intelligent life in the Universe and they have visited Earth?

-I believe they exist, but have never seen...
New Poll - Interrobang
(21 posts, 896 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I've always used ?!
In my head the emotion/excitement often comes at the end of the question.
Sometimes if really excited ?!!
New Poll - Scanlation Features
(41 posts, 1289 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
The two most important for me are Regularity of releases and the Readability of the English. Its frustrating when there's a story that is interesting or you like it quite a bit, but the scanners may only be releasing a chapter or two per year and ...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1162 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I'm sure "Mostly ignore it" is intended as neutral, but is not how I see it. I ignore ecchi in manga, because its often dumb or placed poorly and therefore annoys me which isn't a neutral feeling. However, the rest of the story or characters maybe...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1162 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Agreed. I tend to avoid it or ignore it unless its done well and Saga by Vaughan is honest and sometimes funny in its depictions. I'm also ok with something erotic like Stjepan Sejic's Sunstone, but so much stuff out there is fanservice for its ow...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1162 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I liked Nononono, and ski jumping was original as an idea and seemed well researched. But it had low sales and they decided to rev up the creepy fanservice to the nth degree which ruined it for me.
New Poll - Deus ex machina
(10 posts, 487 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Prefer it only when its funny or creative. Of course funny should be considered part of creative.
New Poll - Post-Hiatus
(24 posts, 1006 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Depends on a few factors. How long is the series? When did the series go on hiatus--at the beginning of a new arc, in the middle or at the end? Is it a weekly or monthly? If the series stopped in the beginning or middle of an arc, I'm liable to wa...
New Poll - Median Ratings
(24 posts, 962 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Don't really like how the poll is worded. If a series fails to make me feel something (ex. feel neutral), and that doesn't have to be limited to making me feel love or hate btw, then I would say it fails. Also I'm probably not going to finish it a...
New Poll - Smoking
(22 posts, 787 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I grew up during a time when people still smoked on airlines. When I was 10 I had many friends who were already stealing a cig or two from their parents and by the time they were in high school had already developed a habit for smoking. My grandfa...
New Poll - Importance of the Main Character
(16 posts, 594 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I'll keep trying in hopes that the main character improves. However, there's a limit. There's been a fair amount of manga which had really nice art and a decent story, that I dropped after giving it a try because I found the MC to be extremely ann...
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 628 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
Actually I think there is a point. When a character is being made fun of because of their accent or being stereotyped in either a positive or negative light a note can help explain that.
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 628 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
I can barely stand it when official translations from publishers start using modern American colloquialisms in Japanese Manga and Anime especially when it takes place in some ancient Asian setting. Then there's all the anime with Texas accents use...
New Poll - Morning Beverage
(13 posts, 528 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by MangaGhost in News
First Water to hydrate myself then lots of Coffee, occasionally tea. The rest of the day is mainly water and sometimes a little juice.
New Poll - Hiatus
(14 posts, 959 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by MangaGhost in News
It depends on the manga and how many volumes before it went on Hiatus. The longer the volume count the more likely I am to read it because I know some of the story elements are likely to be resolved. The shorter the less likely unless it really gr...
New Poll - Authors and Crimes
(33 posts, 2617 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by MangaGhost in News
It depends on the medium. Its going to be hard to watch stuff with Kevin Spacey in it and I can't look at anything with Bill Cosby and not feel tremendous disappointment. There's been other actors who have been convicted of crimes where I now avoi...
