Worst love interests
(1 posts, 277 views) Posted: 2 months ago by Sugarshark in Manga General
most of the toxicity you see in manga is so over the top you couldn't reasonably consider that person a partner; it would be a police matter the first time it happened.
it's possible that a prospective partner can be compromised and not act appropriately
or lack understandi...

New Poll - Storytelling
(11 posts, 873 views) Posted: 5 months ago by Sugarshark in News
I love oral storytelling;
especially from old people.
bananas stuff you wouldn't believe
always makes me glad I wasn't born 100 years ago
When it comes to sexual things what do you think counts as fanservice for women?
(3 posts, 699 views) Posted: 5 months ago by Sugarshark in Shoujo/Josei
there's probably a lot of contrived scenes with activity/preoccupation that cause unusual angles or cropped frames that remove male eye contact from readers.
(with the intent to mimic real life voyeurism.)
Once there is no requirement to hide your gawking, you get a green l...
New Poll - First Comic
(18 posts, 1118 views) Posted: 5 months ago by Sugarshark in News
Euro or American
my parents gave me a number of classic Euro stories; Asterix, Tintin, Le petit prince
my dad also had an impressive Marvel silver & bronze collection although I didn't do much reading of those for a 'first read'
New Poll - Worst Lover Traits
(14 posts, 1079 views) Posted: 5 months ago by Sugarshark in News
Emotionless seems really bad

I think it says more about me, it makes me the worst lover;
on several levels
New Poll - Worst Protagonist Traits
(15 posts, 1272 views) Posted: 5 months ago by Sugarshark in News
maybe genki

I don't think it should count as a trait; of course there's a chance I don't even have the correct semantics
because I find a character with spectrum stuff/anxieties very enjoyable

having a debilitating illness is like a Nicholas Sparks script
oh no my TB truck ku...
New Poll - Protagonist Age
(9 posts, 924 views) Posted: 6 months ago by Sugarshark in News
I find young(sometimes very young) protagonists to be heartbreaking.
anyone under 16 shouldn't have to be sifting through the garbage heap of life
poor circumstances can ruin any entertainment I get from the storytelling
I think 21-30 is a great age for exploration and conqu...

There are many sharp things in my bedroom.
New Poll - Ice Cream
(9 posts, 958 views) Posted: 6 months ago by Sugarshark in News
Pina Coloda or Coconut
used to like Tiger Tail as a child

parents used to buy Neopolitan; and we'd leave the Strawberry intact every box
like that Simpsons sketch
New Poll - Scanlator vs. Reader
(23 posts, 1358 views) Posted: 7 months ago by Sugarshark in News
back in the day
they used to 'rent' fansubbed videos 1:1 with commercial rentals
rent 1 video; get/rent 1 fansub which was usually 3-4 episodes/VHS tape
they had 100's of subs of current 'on tv' series'
that used to be the way it was; the popular shows were publicly broadcast...
New Poll - Half Glass

I hate it when waiters fill up my glass and it was 60% full already
New Poll - Religion (Raised)
(34 posts, 1946 views) Posted: 7 months ago by Sugarshark in News
I found religion later in life.
My wife had passed away and my doctor had suggested that some people find strength in their religion to overcome the unhappiness.
I had a religious experience sometime after that; I find that helps you decide if it's real to you, or just cosp...

New Poll - Episodic vs. Continuous
(9 posts, 1138 views) Posted: 8 months ago by Sugarshark in News
continuous plot
but not continuous arcs by romantic interest 'of the week' that have no shot with MC
New Poll - Physical vs. Digital
(17 posts, 1616 views) Posted: 11 months ago by Sugarshark in News
I don't know if digital can replicate the experience of running down the block on garbage day in Tokyo collecting all of last week's omnibus of series'.
the streets were literally paved with gold
*wipes drool away*
New Poll - Reliving the Past
(14 posts, 1383 views) Posted: 11 months ago by Sugarshark in News
Higher education can be delaying the inevitable
spending an extra 5-10yrs in a safe environment doesn't really embolden people to go take risks(carpe diem)
the longer you enjoy safety the less likely you are to take action that could deprive you of it.
There IS wisdom in hav...
Remove private scanlation teams
(80 posts, 8731 views) Posted: 11 months ago by Sugarshark in Suggestions & Bugs
seems like a reasonable carrot to recruit new members
it was the same thing 30yrs ago with fansubs; do I want to join sketch college club to get access to X, Y & Z titles??
surely I won't have to sell my soul...

Sailor Mars
New Poll - Ads
(11 posts, 1340 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by Sugarshark in News
McDonalds has good/effective ads
they don't tend to say anything about their products; just that regular people eat there
I'm sure this psychological influence is a proven marketing angle
What is your ring tone?
(454 posts, 63279 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by Sugarshark in Music
someone at work complained they were having trouble sleeping;
and their notification ringtone was the Hallowe'en/Michael Myers theme
they didn't see any connection
