New Poll - Osamu Tezuka
(21 posts, 1400 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by philip72 in News
To be honest I'm utterly shocked that 43% chose "Who?". I thought 15-25% at most.
I'd expect this at MAL, but not here. I'm actually a little disgusted.
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 908 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in News
Absolutely.

Far too many lazy (American) translators automatically default to using Southern US, Redneck or California surfer accents for everything from Akita Dialect to Kansai-ben to Okinawan.
It's galling because English has some great equivalents that somewhat match cul...
Restaurant
(6 posts, 587 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in I'm Looking For...
If you've read A LOT of manga, then I imagine you're already familiar with the following titles:
Ristorante Paradiso
Working!!
Three Stars no Specialite
Oishii Ayakashi
Shiawase Restaurant
Absolute must read: Shinya Shokudou
Romance that addresses intimacy maturely?

Ran to Haiiro no Sekai: One of the male leads is a "playboy" and is sexually attracted to the main girl but respects her boundaries

I don't know what manga you read, but it wasn't Ran to Haiiro no Sekai. That guy was an utter sociopath who didn't ev...
New Poll - Evil
(5 posts, 1056 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in News
Yeah I agree with animated corpses being nothing special. The lack of even animal levels of IQ would render them helpless, and they'd rot away quickly in warm climates or freeze solid in cold climates.

I have to laugh at how many edgelords are here too, one out of four thi...
New Poll - Scanlators Asking for Donations
(28 posts, 3532 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in News
I agree with you. Raws are okay, maybe, but nobody needs their own server.

The choices in this poll are poorly worded and (deliberately?) leading. I'd add the choice "No, it's totally unethical" If I had my druthers.
New Poll - Donating for Scanlations
(26 posts, 3307 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in News
I call them full of shit too.

I've worked with several scan teams and finished numerous titles over the last 15 years, and no matter how they whine, actual scanlation isn't hard and rarely costs a cent. If someone is putting in 12-16 hours of work per chapter, they must be...
New Poll - Donating for Scanlations
(26 posts, 3307 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by philip72 in News
THIS!
Nobody should pay scanlators, EVER. It violates almost every ethic possible.

Furthermore, no scan group actually needs money. They don't need fancy websites, they don't need bandwidth and they don't need to create an online community just for stroking their e-peeners....
New Poll - Bad Characteristics
(25 posts, 3841 views) Posted: over 6 years ago by philip72 in News
Quote from meredithbecca
I feel like I've read good or entertaining stories with all of these kinds of protagonists. None of these would be actual deal breakers for me, because I think that all of them could be well written (and the flawless character can make a good comed...
New Poll - Relationship Status

/a/ taught me that 3D is PD, and only a waifu's love is real.
Japanzai Closes Its Doors

I still remember their full-page watermarks. Most autistic thing I ever saw, and they accomplished nothing. sad
New Poll - Categories
(21 posts, 2872 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
Searching the female-centric tags of Smut, Shoujo and Josei + Rape yields another 650+ results, although there's probably some duplication within the tags.
I blame the patriarchy.
New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 5872 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
I think the "Just make another" and "Abandon her" options were added just to suss out how many edgelords visit MU.
As the time of this post we're sitting at 11.9% edgy.
New Poll - Other Manga Activities
(21 posts, 3739 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
6.2% write fanwank.
Ow, my sides. laugh
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 4686 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
Scanlators who love the series they work with don't do that. They're trying to make the series as popular as possible, and dropping it countermands that goal.
Scanlators who do it for solely for their epeen, on the other hand, will however drop it for those reasons. They'r...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 7211 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
I'm here almost every day and I never saw the list. That's probably because I, like 99.9% of the people who've joined MU, never use the forum anymore. It does explain the teeny fujo odor all over the final selection though.

Maybe if you want to get a little more realistic ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 7211 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
Yotsubato and GTO didn't make it because the poll is bait, as evidenced by the presence of Black Butler, Horimiya and Pandora Hearts (which I enjoy, but seriously, not even top 100).
If it was a serious poll the exclusion of Dr. Slump/Dragonball, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bastard!!, City...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 4421 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
Quote from residentgrigo
good female targeted manga are all sorts of things but "rare as an unicorn" they are not. They just donĀ“t sell that well when compared (and moe is a seinen phenomenon)

I can't think of more than a handful really good female targeted manga; Nodame Ca...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 4421 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
You're right to some extent.
I imagine the female readership for Jump is an order of magnitude larger than male readership of Margaret. In addition, Jump caters to it's female readership somewhat with works like Prince of Tennis (Is there a single straight male that actua...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 4421 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention Yoshikawa Miki who's enjoying a surge of popularity right now with her "Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches"; and the utterly amazing and fantastic Kubo Mitsurou (Tokkyuu!!, Moteki, Again!), who understands the male psyche better than a...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 4421 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
There's some excellent josei and shoujo out there, but it's rarer than unicorns. The vast majority of it is either excessively maudlin or sociopathic, the kind of tripe that makes mindless and generic T&A harems look like works of high art.

It's odd because the absolute be...
New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 4663 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
Heavens yes, lots of people, that's terribly, terribly frightening.
Far worse than an "unrealistic" Nuclear holocaust or an "unrealistic" asteroid catastrophe .

"Overpopulation and/or loss of resources - 16.2%"
You're all such good kids. Globally population figures are fall...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 7161 views) Posted: over 7 years ago by philip72 in News
It's funny, obviously the female-oriented demographics will lose, by a high margin too I imagine. (Women are largely ambivalent to seinen and shounen, but guys view most shoujo and josei with disgust and revulsion.) However, most of the comments here say shounen is the d...
New Poll - Membership

"Who uses that chapter thingy anyways"
Pretty much everyone, you're actually kinda unique.
New Poll - Villains
(39 posts, 5163 views) Posted: over 8 years ago by philip72 in News
Yours is the only honest choice.

I think this poll is just a clever plan to out all the Chuuni's here on Baka-Updates.
Almost 25% fancy themselves strategists or masterminds, and this comments thread is full of edgemasters telling us that they'd be Hell Kings, Psychos and ...
