New Poll - Hiatus
(14 posts, 465 views) Posted: over 48 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I won't read a manga on hiatus. No matter how good it is, I would be annoyed that I can't read the ending. ...
New Poll - Authors and Crimes
(33 posts, 1361 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I do avoid artists works if I don't like them personally (such as Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Chris Brown). It's hard to do when it's your favorite artist, but I couldn't read (or listen or watch) their work without thinking of the things they hav ...
New Poll - Manga Reading (No Breaks)
(10 posts, 629 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from SinsI
Do you count toilet breaks?
Yeah, I need to know if bathroom and food breaks count. I have spent whole days just reading manga, but I do take breaks to eat and pee. So without those types of breaks, probably 6-7 hours. But if those breaks don' ...
New Poll - When Start Reading?
(15 posts, 899 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I started after graduating college. Had a bunch of free time on my hands since I had a hard time finding a job. ...
New Poll - Manga for How Long?
(22 posts, 1292 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Around 7 or 8 years. I had been into anime on and off since childhood, but it wasn't until I was about 20 or 21 that I started reading manga. I guess that's fairly late compared to most people on this site. ...
New Poll - Choosing a Series
(21 posts, 1412 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I typically stick to completed series, so the first thing I do is scan the releases page for series that have just ended. Having the series be completed is generally the most important factor for me because a lot of manga end up going unfinished. After that, I choose b ...
New Poll - Goals
(16 posts, 1194 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
My goal is just to be satisfied with my life. I don't know what specifically will lead me there, though. ...
New Poll - Deal Breaker
(27 posts, 2288 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from MangaGhost
Its mostly how a topic is handled. Most topics if handled seriously it doesn't bother me. On the other hand, let's say its something like rape and the manga author is obviously using it like fan service that ticks me off and I'm ...
Combine "Adult" and "Mature" into a single genre
(20 posts, 1292 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in Suggestions & Bugs
I think for regular readers of these genres, the distinctions are clear. As residentgrigo wrote, if we compare these to movie ratings, mature would be R-rated and adult would be NC-17. And as hahhah42 mentioned, smut is a manga with some sexual content that is ...
New Poll - Eating Apples
(15 posts, 1276 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Yay my random poll was chosen! I wanted to ask because I never peel apples and had never heard of anyone peeling apples until I read manga. The only reason I would peel an apple is to cook it, like when making apple pie or something. Besides, isn't the pe ...
New Poll - Wake-Up
(15 posts, 1316 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Right now, I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm and usually wake up between 6am-9am. Though sometimes I suffer from insomnia. On those nights, I'll wake up between 3am-5am and won't be able to fall back asleep. ...
New Poll - Hidden Hobby?
(15 posts, 1397 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I don't hide it, but I don't go out of my way to talk about it. But when I talk about it, I do hide that I'm into yaoi. ...
New Poll - Long Series
(16 posts, 1448 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Well I think the longest series I've read is Red River and that had 28 volumes. Being a shoujo and yaoi fan I don't get the opportunity to read a lot of long series. But I kind of feel that there's no such thing as too long. What matters is keeping up th ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2381 posts, 666894 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in Manga General
Do you peel apples before eating them?
- Yes, always
- Yes, sometimes
- No, never
- I don't eat apples

This is a bit random but I often come across scenes in manga where the characters peel an apple before eating it. I don't know anyone who peels an ...
New Poll - Good, bad, and the Ugly
(40 posts, 3136 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Well I can't read something with a bad beginning because I'd drop the series immediately. There's no guarantee it'd get better, and I wouldn't want to continue when the story was poorly planned from the beginning. And a bad endin ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2381 posts, 666894 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in Manga General
We've done ones similar to this, but not sure if we've had this exact one before:

Usually when a story is adapted to a different medium, such as a manga being made into an anime or anime into a live-action, we can expect the story to be changed in so ...
New Poll - Doujinshi
(10 posts, 1054 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Seldom. Like someone else mentioned, djs are for shippers, which I am not. I always come across the yaoi djs, where they take straight characters and make them into gay lovers. Now I love yaoi, but I don't like seeing my favorite characters changed. Whe ...
When did you join MangaUpdates? What's your first completed Manga according to your list?
(20 posts, 1181 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in Chatter Box
I joined 6 years ago. I was using this site for a while before that though. I think for about a year. Anyways, I first used the site to find new manga to read but eventually realized I needed to keep a list of the manga I was reading. So I thought about it for a couple month ...
Studies
(130 posts, 12319 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in Chatter Box
I got a B.A. in anthropology with a minor in religious studies. Lately I've been considering going back to school as I'm in the midst of a career change. ...
New Poll - Sports
(34 posts, 2616 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
I've read a couple of romance manga that were about archery and enjoyed them. But it's really hard to choose one when there are so many options. I don't even really like sports, but a good manga could make any sport interesting. But for m ...
New Poll - How Fast Do You Read?
(21 posts, 1949 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
If I'm not busy, a few hours. I like to find completed series and read them all at once. I have a pretty poor memory, so sometimes I'll start a story at night, and when I go back to finish it the next day I've already forgotten what was happening. It' ...
New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2606 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
The Sailor Moon anime. I first saw it when I was about 6 years old. Of course I didn't know it was anime then. I also the watched Dragon Ball Z when I was around this age. Some years later, Cartoon Network started their Toonami programming and brought b ...
New Poll - Anime/Manga Club
(16 posts, 1762 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
My high school didn't have one, but my college did. I didn't join it. Although I watched a few series growing up, I didn't really get into anime until my senior year of college. And by the time I was a senior, I was over joining clubs. ...
New Poll - Conventions
(17 posts, 1887 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from calstine
I have no interest in what the mangaka, voice actors, or what-have-you are like as long as their work itself is good, don't consume doujinshi or other fanworks, don't care about getting signatures or buying collectibles, never was i ...
New Poll - Other Settings
(14 posts, 1294 views) Posted: over 47 years ago ago by KaoriNite in News
For me, I don't have a particular setting that I prefer to read. But I just wish that whatever setting the author chooses, they do their research and depict the setting accurately. There are plenty of times I've read a manga where the setting was outside ...
