New Poll - Character Art
(4 posts, 526 views) Posted: 23 days ago by kurotaito in News
Can't even vote on this one because I think it really depends on artist/genre. Like a lot romance manga go above and beyond on clothing, or vfx that its the thing that literally makes me come back to a recycled trashy plotline. Then a horror/thriller comic might have amaz...
New Poll - Video Game Platforms
(15 posts, 975 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by kurotaito in News
True on that. There are many handheld gaming computers/devices that run all sort of operating systems (steam deck - linux based, razer - android, and the new ayaneo flip should be windows).
New Poll - Video Game Platforms
(15 posts, 975 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by kurotaito in News
If my PC runs linux, what do I click? Also it just depends on the game if I am more likely to play on a laptop or a desktop. I mostly play games on steam, and a lot of them run on linux and windows (eg Loop Hero, Stardew, Civ6, Papers Please, etc). So what actually goes o...
New Poll - Drying Your Clothes
(6 posts, 877 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by kurotaito in News
Depends on the clothing. Most of my cloths are dried with an in-unit dryer, but I have regular circulation of clothes that must be hang dried.
New Poll - Reading Language Proficiency
(12 posts, 1026 views) Posted: 2 months ago by kurotaito in News
Not proficient or fluent in Korean or Spanish, but my goals when learning both of those languages was just reading comics/books. Every teacher that I've ever had, declared that my learning abilities would be quite stunted if I did not take time learning how verbal speech ...

What do you want to eat right NOW?

Shrimp w/ veggies. I just need to put them in the oven right now, but I am kind of lazy.
New Poll - Long Titles
(8 posts, 900 views) Posted: 3 months ago by kurotaito in News
There is no title that is too long but I rather it be less than 5. After 5 words, you know the fanbase is just going to abbreviate anyway, your not going to remember the exact title, and your never going to tell someone the exact title anyway.
New Poll - Transmigrated Into Book World
(13 posts, 1053 views) Posted: 3 months ago by kurotaito in News
You only remember a few events/names

I can remember the general plot/outline of the story, but names would be very iffy. I have good recognition abilities, but like i know I'm not going to recall anything way before the event.

I could see it now, I recognize the world and ...
New Poll - Transportation
(20 posts, 987 views) Posted: 3 months ago by kurotaito in News
US City. Bike commuter (95%) + buses (5%). US Suburbs. Rental Car/Taking family or friends cars.

Hopefully, I will never buy a car ever again. I am just paying too much extra stuff. I like biking too, even if my bike gets stuffed jacked off of it every other month.
New Poll - First Comic
(18 posts, 1069 views) Posted: 4 months ago by kurotaito in News
Also on the can't recall group. I know some of the first comics that I owned were Sonic (still have them in my collection, ripped and drawn pages in all). However, I am sure I probably read my siblings comics like archie, garfield, sailor moon and other stuff before I was...
New Poll - Protagonist Age
(9 posts, 887 views) Posted: 5 months ago by kurotaito in News
21-30 years old

I find that most leads act like (or think like) there in their 20s so I would rather the author just have them in their 20s.

Its truly a skill to create a believable child or an immortal. And many authors just don't have those skillsets, trying to cop out b...
New Poll - Physical Manga
(21 posts, 1436 views) Posted: 6 months ago by kurotaito in News
Within the last month Had to think about it, went on a comic binge recently, Image, Iron Horse, and DC., its way cheaper to buy old prints of those than manga/manhwa.

Yeah, I would definitely love to make a private pseudo public library from my collection. I just need mone...
New Poll - Religion (Raised)
(34 posts, 1855 views) Posted: 6 months ago by kurotaito in News
Christian - Catholic. Honestly thought it was strange that no jewish denominations were listed; they aren't a monolith.

Raised primarily catholic, still primarily catholic. I like how much catholics study other old texts & their constant discussion on biblical interpretatio...
New Poll - Another Anime vs Manga
(13 posts, 1168 views) Posted: 7 months ago by kurotaito in News
Watch anime and read manga in parallel I actually read like 20 chapters of the manga first to see if I even want to watch the anime. Most the time, I stay ahead of the anime the whole time, and read or watch in a binge. And I can go through way more content in a reading b...
New Poll - School Setting
(11 posts, 1380 views) Posted: 8 months ago by kurotaito in News
Undergrad is always a great setting. Authors can have characters deal with so much from finance, relations, and magic w/o any of the self-censorship!! A lot of HS comics have the characters acting like middle schoolers or vice versa.

I dont see much grad school comics whe...

LGBT manga are being banned from US schools and libraries
(20 posts, 2806 views) Posted: 9 months ago by kurotaito in Manga General
Quote from HoneyAmanda
In other words, there is a moral to classic literature. And having LGBT books in school is not necessarily a call, but it is a kind of encouragement.


Queer books have morals too! Like stop being a bigot, or love is beautiful, or just that every person...
New Poll - Buying Physical Manga
(12 posts, 1327 views) Posted: 9 months ago by kurotaito in News
Used from online retailer. I always have bought most of my books online just cos I lived in the boonies growing up. Now, its cos I want some out of print TokyoPop or IceKunion
Do you avoid non-Japanese manga?
(27 posts, 2689 views) Posted: 9 months ago by kurotaito in Manga General
I read anything that I can get my hands on. I definitely have a sweet spot for early 2000s manhwa (korean graphic novels, not webtoons). I really wish there was more of the traditional prints or just korean comics in the style of western comics, for the sole purpose that ...
LGBT manga are being banned from US schools and libraries
(20 posts, 2806 views) Posted: 9 months ago by kurotaito in Manga General
I totally agree with this take. Just wanted to add in that a good way to defend your public libraries in the US is by actually using them. Numbers help justify spending and funding.

Also taking part in (or creating) your library's friends group helps fight one party polit...

Happy 19th! Can't wait for 20.
New Poll - Physical vs. Digital
(17 posts, 1570 views) Posted: 10 months ago by kurotaito in News
If i had unlimited money & language skills, i would only read physical books. Since I don't I read digital everyday and probably 2-3 physical graphic books a month.

But got to be real, some of the digital stuff be made for the media and the conversion to physical looks bad...
New Poll - Hero vs Villain
(16 posts, 1490 views) Posted: 10 months ago by kurotaito in News
Hero. Was about to choose villain, but thought I would be probably be an antihero. Can't be too good, but can't be straight evil.

This is a problem I have experienced twice with the site. Yesterday night, all my visits to the site resulted in seeing webpage that just said "Who are you?" It didn't matter if my url bar was directed to the release page or the forums.
