Artist's Showcase / Re: Sharwin's Artwork~
« on: April 30, 2012, 18:56 »
Been a while since I did anything arty. This is a contest submission for Sword Girls Online color me contest. This one took quite a while since the default resolution was huge haha. Still can't do glass/skin coloring that well but oh well, I think this probably a step up from my last colorings... >_>



If you want to see it in higher resolution...

And if you want EVEN higher you can download it from my deviant art. Thing is like 3402x4800 D;

Anime / Re: Sankarea
« on: March 27, 2012, 00:13 »
I'm in the exact flip. Most anime that come out I've read the manga already. I can't really watch an anime of a manga I've read because knowing what happens just makes me lose interest.

Sankarea was kinda interesting, but read too much and lost interest/forgot about it already xD.

Anime / Re: Best/Worst Moment in Anime
« on: March 27, 2012, 00:01 »
I will always remember the Rock Lee vs Gaara fight match in Naruto.

Not exactly sure if the entire series being bad qualifies for worst moment. World Destruction, Tytania and Dragon Crisis were all, in my opinion, terrible.

Time for Sharwin's words of wisdom.

Love is when two people join at the groin.

Last night I was apparently the random senior that goes to Lily's school and we talked about how the weather was so warm. So then we both decided to take off our clothes and have hot...

I can't remember what happened after that though, so I'll stop here.

To be honest, scanlation and manga are a double edged sword. Scanlation and the community has really made most of the popularity in manga over here, yet at the same time, it doesn't exactly promote sales of official volume releases because of how accessible manga is on web viewers. Accessibility is really the key thing, because with the internet and scanlation, a chapter that is just released in Japan within a couple hours can be brought to everywhere, whereas the turnover for the company might take a few months for that chapter to appear over here.

As to what Shiki said about 'variety' of manga, from a business sense it isn't feasible unless manga is actually more mainstream here in general. They don't have the finances to get the rights, publish and translate some niche titles in hopes that it could be popular here. That's why they choose the big titles like Naruto/Bleach/One Piece. While I would love for them to pick up some other titles I think are good, popularity really will determine what ultimately comes over here. Kind of true even in Japan, many times you'll start reading something and you'll think it's very good only to get some axed ending.

There is also the issue of 'quality' but I wouldn't really put that as the prominent issue. I would have to say accessibility speed of scanlation and online readers really will deter sales of official releases. No one wants to wait months to end on a cliff hanger to wait a few more months.

Lounge / Re: So...Who has Twitter?
« on: June 15, 2011, 17:50 »
Twitter in reality has two major purposes. One is for reaching out to people certain information and the other is for you to go follow whoever you want to get specific information about.

That could be famous people, game developers political figures or whatever. It's basically like a facebook status or a mini one liner blog in a much more public sense.

Manga / Re: Favorite manga characters! >:]
« on: January 08, 2011, 00:08 »
Male:
Munsu from Shin Angyo Onshi
Urahara from Bleach

Female:
Kazehana from Sekirei
C.C. from Code Geass
Murasaki from Kurenai

That is what I can think of off the top of my head... D; I can list more interesting characters that aren't exactly my favourite.

Yuno is pretty cool from Mirai Nikki xD.

Lounge / Tokyo Says "Sayonara" To Freedom Of Speech?
« on: December 13, 2010, 02:25 »
http://kotaku.com/5712825/tokyo-says-sayonara-to-freedom-of-speech

Apparently some new bill maybe passed allowing some new regulations on anime/manga/games in Japan. This is mainly to do with censoring manga for virtual youth.

http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2010/12/13/mangaka-my-publisher-has-banned-school-uniforms/

Even though the it isn't officially in the law, some (BL) mangaka are reporting that the publisher has banned School Uniforms along with potentially even using High School Students.\

NOTE: That Sankaku link has some ads that are 18+, enter at your own caution.

Anyways... Things look like they could get bad real quick :S
