New Poll - Racism in Manga
This week's poll was suggested by 8-3. I'll just copy/paste what he stated
Quote
Some manga do get banned/censored/altered in certain countries due to racist imagery. What's seen as light-hearted humor in Japan could be regarded as offensive in other countries. For instance, the Viz Media version of Dragon Ball actually removed Mr. Popo's lips, due to the resemblance to "Blackface."

And compared to other countries, namely western ones, racial stereotypes actually are vastly different in Japan. Two very common stereotypes that I see in manga are that Chinese people supposedly end their sentences with "-aru," and that every black man is named "Bob."

I'm very confused about having beast ears and human ears... So they just have 4 ears? Why?...

Question: When should amnesia be used as a plot line or characterization?
Choices:
As the finale - votes: 84 (2.8%)

The most popular choice is to have amnesia be the inciting incident at the very beginning of a series. So the reader will discover how the world works at the same time as the main character.

New Poll - Censoring Curses
This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto, and it deals with how to translate censored curses or expletives. It's interesting to think about, even though I don't think it comes up that often.

Search Broken
We are aware that most of the site is not functioning and are working to resolve it. Unfortunately, I cannot give an estimate on when it will be fixed.

Edit: Issue has been resolved. We're still trying to analyze why it broke though.
