New Poll - Racism in Manga
(34 posts, 1432 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by gwkimmy in News
I understand that Japan's (and other country's) relationship with race is entirely different than many countries in the west, especially the United States. I'm not really the type of person to promote banning at the smallest stereotype, but I will...
New Poll - Manga Passion
(20 posts, 650 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
Whether or not American fears of communism during the Cold War was warranted or not is almost irrelevant in this point in history, I believe that is what what HikaruYami is referring to.

What is important, and damning, is that what the United State...
New Poll - Manga Passion
(20 posts, 650 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I voted "close family and friends" since it's not something I go out telling everybody...but then I realized I do have some blatant advertisements LOL. My laptop has a My Neighbor Totoro themed skin that I made, my car has Ghibli decals all over i...
New Poll - Animation Quality Deal Breaker
(20 posts, 704 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
Most fujoshi aren't like me and don't care, they're just thirsty for a mainstream anime that will give them the MLM. Which is fine, I guess. There's a lot more BL anime coming out and I'm excited for like, maybe two of them.

To me, the overarching ...
New Poll - Animation Quality Deal Breaker
(20 posts, 704 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
It sucks because I'm a fujoshi, so you'd think I'd be thrilled with it. Instead all we got was pure bait and bullshit cutaways so that no "real romance" is confirmed. Just make them a couple goddamnit! Stop stealing the precious animation budget w...
New Poll - Animation Quality Deal Breaker
(20 posts, 704 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I think it also depends on what the anime's focus is on, as well.

When I watched Yuri on Ice, I thought the story was okay enough (despite the baiting), but what really pissed me off was that they poured the animation budget into animating one or t...
New Poll - Harem Endings
(16 posts, 987 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I first voted "ends up with no one" but unfortunately later realized that the option includes those stupid storylines where the MC "just can't choose". should have voted that I hate harems....

when I used to be able to tolerate harems, my ideal tha...
New Poll - Rebooting the Classics
(33 posts, 975 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
It really depends. For me, a classic, good anime is a combination of a great director, great voice acting, great writing/script, and talented artists/animators. If an anime has all of those, no matter how "dated" it looks, then I think it needs no...
New Poll - Mental Health
(21 posts, 833 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by gwkimmy in News
dyslexia is more of a learning disability rather than a mental health condition. I don't know what the protocols are in your country but in the U.S you can definitely get diagnosed as an adult if you still need to do "school-ish" things (take exam...
New Poll - Ecchi
(28 posts, 1042 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
your post really has me thinking as to what the appropriate definition of "ecchi" should be. my definition is that it's male-targeted sexual titillation, which I don't care for and is often juvenile, so I voted for "ignore". The only thing I've en...
New Poll - Deus ex machina
(10 posts, 454 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I've never, ever seen a deus ex machina used creatively. Even the ending to madoka felt like a deus ex for me and ruined the whole experience of the story.

I have seen them used in strictly comedy series, however, and those are great. bear out of n...
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 555 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
Quote from philip72
A few possible examples:
Kansai-ben = Cockney or East End London, if you have to keep it 'murican then Bostonian or Metropolitan New York English.
Akita = Doric Scots or Minnesotan
Hokkaidan = Canadian eh, maybe some Irish type
Kyo...
New Poll - Translating Dialects
(18 posts, 555 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
This is really tough. Normally I prefer a translation note and nothing else, but then often I forget that the character is talking in a different accent until there's a joke and I've missed the punchline.

If EVERYONE is speaking in the different ac...
New Poll - Drinking
(30 posts, 1143 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I really hate the taste of alcohol, and I can definitely taste it in anything. my friends and family have made me try lots of things and I can taste it. I can even taste the alcohol in certain cakes like tiramisu and rum cake. It's just not my thi...
Batoto Closing
(75 posts, 8389 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I'm really sad about batoto and know some people who really depend on that site for their manga...although i directly follow the groups now since batoto often didn't update fast enough for my liking lol

omg PLEASE never close this site down! my man...
New Poll - Authors and Crimes
(33 posts, 2414 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
you're going to find skeletons in everyone's closet. you do you, but it's completely fine for people to have the ability to be able to divorce someone's work from the person. something can be learned from the works, even if that person no longer g...
New Poll - Authors and Crimes
(33 posts, 2414 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
libraries still have to buy them, so i'm good on that front (plus politics might likely play a role in which library will have certain works)
New Poll - Authors and Crimes
(33 posts, 2414 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
Since I'm already a pirate and consume scanlations, nothing would change there. I do think it's extremely important to separate the work from the author/artist and give it value on its own merit. Roman Polanski made some very good movies that can ...
New Poll - Paying Translators
(37 posts, 2903 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
In several of the groups I follow there are members who are actually part of official translating licenses of other manga, so I kind of find it funny lol. many of them have since retired because of the demands of the job, however sad

I see several peo...
Suggestion: Search for incomplete manga
(0 posts, 291 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in Suggestions & Bugs
So there's an option for "search only for complete manga". I'd like one for incomplete manga.

I was browsing through my complete list and discovered that since I completed some series, the author decided to continue them later on, therefore i've be...
New Poll - Scanlators Asking for Donations
(28 posts, 2876 views) Posted: over 3 years ago by gwkimmy in News
I've never given a scanlator donations for their work or anything, but I did once give a good chunk of money to a scanlators GoFundMe for their parents declining health. I'm in the genre where free raws are rare or of shit quality so most groups I...
New Poll - Trump
(106 posts, 15173 views) Posted: over 4 years ago by gwkimmy in News
Well they already basically proposed tax increases on middle class single parents so we have that to look forward to, not to mention a Republican congress to zing that bill into law.

Obvi racism exists but no reason to be petty when it can be writt...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(28 posts, 4735 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by gwkimmy in News
i believe that the age limit being 18+ is in place mostly so that educators, who are in close contact with kids up until that age, are deterred from having relationships with their students. abuse is all about power and with a teacher having autho...
New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 5151 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by gwkimmy in News
obvi i've already trained my daughter since birth to be a badass swordswoman/warrior so i'm sure she'll be back in due time. i'll distract the demons by sending messengers and whatnot so she can make her escape. xD
New Poll - Publication Frequency
(16 posts, 2760 views) Posted: over 5 years ago by gwkimmy in News
monthly. most of the series i read are released monthly and the page length is usually pretty good, like around 40ish pages, enough for some plot to happen and to end at a good spot without feeling rushed or choppy.

i really hated it the few times ...
