(18 posts, 2793 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
As mentioned before Hikaru no Go has a very strong rivalry and friendship. The whole manga is based around games between 2 people. Players with equal talent becomes extremely strong rivals and good friends. Not just for the MC but also for others. Like Touyou for example,...
Men who are genetically attractive to women
(8 posts, 1908 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
Okay, I found out about this little funny video on Business Insider http://www.businessinsider.com/ways-women-can-be-more-attrac tive-2014-10

Pretty much what it says is that a man would instinctively do a "Reproductive Fitness Assessment" the 1st time he meets a woman. Es...
Questions Concerning Incestious Relationships
(8 posts, 1774 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
It's not "morally wrong" in a sense. Almost all of our so-called morals are standards that change from time to time and almost all of them are based more or less on our instincts which is based on our genes rather than reasoning. Gene an extreme form of experience as it i...
Why do some people dislike vegans?
(95 posts, 11517 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
One of the thing I learn as an actual environmentalist (the ones that study it) is that there is no such thing as a 'real fruit', 'fake', 'frankenfood' or in'organic' fruit. There are fruits that sell well, fruits that don't.

Almost everything people grow has been genetica...
Why do some people dislike vegans?

Quote from hkanz
How about a stir fry with tofu or some spaghetti? I don't know what your standards are, you sound like a foodie, but I think that your description is a vast exaggeration for most people..


Yes, I'm something of a foodie. It's really difficult for normal peop...
Why do some people dislike vegans?

Quote from Aijin-of-Iwa
I didn't expect so many answers... From what I've seen, I mostly think people get defensive once they find out I'm vegan, as if I was insulting them or looking down on them for being meat-eaters. My opinions on them apart though, I think most people...
Long series that's worth it
(12 posts, 1518 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Jiraishin: 18 vols (more if you follow the sequel) - This is a dark, hard boiled, action, detective Seinen. There is a strong element of romance in 2-3 of the story arcs, including the one with the main character. However, this is a dark/tragic type of manga so the romanc...
Is this Cool?: Sword Balancing on Shoulder
(12 posts, 979 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
The whole picture of a person holding a blade on his shoulder shows a certain degree of over confidence, ready to fight and some what provoking. The person is giving off a message that he's confident in using the sword with an unorthodox battle pose and he's relaxed enoug...
Getting manga raws from ebooks
(22 posts, 5593 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
I assume ebook are actual ebook file you can download and not something you have to connect to the internet to read.

I don't know what kind of ebook manga are in but if it's epub like other books then you can unzip it as it is just another form of zip file. If it's in anot...
Antisocial behaviour

Most of the time having family trying to talk to someone when they are emo will not work. There are 2 ways dealing with certain disorder: discipline or religion.

Strong discipline is usually the most practical way of doing it. This is because it will most likely going to ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 7028 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
Sorry, it's a typo that got stuck in my head for a long time. Veritas and The Breaker are both wushu in a sense where as Ares or Shin Angyo Onshi are not but they are more focused on actions rather than martial arts.
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 7028 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
No, I'm certain that a fair number of martial arts mangwa made by korean artists are loosely based on wushu world settings. They have a modern take on it, similar to urban fantasy vs fantasy but they are based very similar. In contrast, historical fantasy, fantasy or othe...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 7028 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
A lot of mangwa martial arts don't translate well. The stories are based loosely on wushu novels. They are a very different world compare to current manga and anime. It's like the tolkienian world of the east. Only a few of the elements get passed into current Anime/Manga...
Luck?

There is luck and there is chance. Even though you are betting on good fortune, it doesn't mean you shouldn't be stacking your deck.
What if we couldn't lie?
(33 posts, 3738 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
There is a huge difference between lying and deceptions. You can tell the truth and nothing but the truth but you can certainly deceive people with the truth. The simplest way would be the tone of your voice and the pauses in your sentences when you say something. You can...
Will world peace ever be achieved?
(32 posts, 2880 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
War arise from conflict and human love war because it's born with them. You can't have a conflict-free world because the world would never change and never get better with that. It's like a perfect world. It seems nice but it's not the world you want.

Can all conflicts be ...

Yeah, the scheming plotter type always make the story interesting. Too many fake 'smart' characters, we need real smart, clever, stoic and prudent type.
Novel Recommendations

Give Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher a try. Wizards, magic, supernatural in a hard boiled detective style story. It's more action/detective/film noir with mind games rather than crime/thriller. It's about a wizard trying to make ends meets as a private detective and n...

What's that saying goes? "if you have enough money, even demons will be your slaves.".

Air pollution killing people? Hand over the cash and the jobs and the government will sweep it under the rug. Hand over some more cash and even the people will keep silent! Need us to ha...
Pale Skin vs. Tanned
(19 posts, 3508 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Chatter Box
I think it depends. Some people look nice with sun tanned skin; slightly brownish or bronze/caramel coloured skin in general. Some other people look nice with a pale skin. Not porcelain white pale or vampire-grade pale but more like peach colour pale.

I have sun tanned ski...
How do i explain to mom that i read something with incest?
(11 posts, 2278 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in Manga General
There are a lot of fiction novels involving a lot of killings. There are a lot of movies and TV shows with blood, deaths, violence, malice and all sort of things that would be outlawed in the real world. It's fiction, it can be anything. You just tell her that you're read...
romance but not high-school...
(19 posts, 9880 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Give Oishii Kankei a try. It's about cooking but 40% of it is romance/drama. There is this mature kind of love growing between the characters. Not the sweet and happy type romance though. More like 'you are together or you are not'.
romance but not high-school...
(19 posts, 9880 views) Posted: over 9 years ago by Oddwaffle in I'm Looking For...
Little House with the Orange Roof would be light heart romance without highschool setting. No harem and little to no drama but it's closer to a middle age bracket rather than young/student setting. Live happily ever after kind of story.

Hmm... can't think of any other roma...
