New Poll - Tea vs. Coffee
(12 posts, 601 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by MangaGhost in News
I like both, but I only have coffee once a day in the mornings for a jumpstart any later and the caffeine can affect your sleep because it can stay in your system for many hours. Also I try not to drink it on weekends to moderate the intake. As far as tea I only drink the...
New Poll - Time Freeze
(20 posts, 1148 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by MangaGhost in News
Like residentgrigo wisely said probably do some mundane things to test it out first. After that it would depend how it worked. If you can stop time and don't age also (in some situations you might stop time for everyone else but you are still living and aging) then I'd de...
New Poll - World Ruler
(50 posts, 1409 views) Posted: 7 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 family--that is of cours...
New Poll - Purpose of Prisons
(23 posts, 900 views) Posted: 10 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 warranted.

I agree and why I didn't vote.
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1384 views) Posted: over 3 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. Lots of people think that Co...
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1384 views) Posted: over 3 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 It might have been good for the time, maybe even considered a classic, but it looks outdated and a new makeover can attract a new generation of viewers.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 Battleship Yamato 2199. Al...
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 1384 views) Posted: over 3 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 2 examples and they were ...
New Poll - Alcohol
(34 posts, 1162 views) Posted: over 3 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 would make you feel like yo...
New Poll - Spoiled Ending
(14 posts, 683 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 you aren't being trolled b...
New Poll - Past vs. Present Favorites
(13 posts, 637 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's made both in the past a...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2971 posts, 877762 views) Posted: over 4 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 them.
-I believe they exi...
New Poll - Interrobang

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, 1498 views) Posted: over 4 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 they are several volumes ...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1333 views) Posted: over 4 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 interesting, so I try no...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1333 views) Posted: over 4 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 own sake that its just shov...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1333 views) Posted: over 4 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, 548 views) Posted: over 4 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, 1128 views) Posted: over 4 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 wait for a few chapters to ...
New Poll - Median Ratings
(24 posts, 1171 views) Posted: over 4 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 and therefore it doubly fa...
New Poll - Smoking
(22 posts, 893 views) Posted: over 4 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 grandfather died when I was eigh...
New Poll - Importance of the Main Character
(16 posts, 660 views) Posted: over 4 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 annoying or worse what the c...
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 713 views) Posted: over 4 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, 713 views) Posted: over 4 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 used as a dialect, which ten...
New Poll - Morning Beverage
(13 posts, 614 views) Posted: over 4 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.
