Nope.

Unmarked spoilers are against the rules of the forum.

I think they violate the general rule of "don't be a dick".

Double checking the forum rules it doesn't specifically say "no spoiler tags" so it's rather up to user interpretation whether spoiling something is just to be a dick. It's a pretty douchebag thing to ban someone over even if the poster is a douchebag. But, I'll assume it's fair play until this matter is actually clarified.

Well, to put it in perspective:

Typing out an unmarked spoiler, and then adding 'lol spoilers' is a pretty clear example of 'being a dick'.

Also, from the rules page : "If you're about to make a post that you're not sure is OK, whether covered by the rules or not, don't."

You know, KermitTheMuppet just got banned for posting unmarked spoilers in this thread.

Oh shi-
I maintain my silence on that unmarked spoiler I made from here on in. Never again.

Shingetsuten Tsukihime was a blight and was so damn boring and unneeded as there was a badass manga and the source material was well written and fucking hysterical (points to the sex scenes, if there is one thing Nasu can't do it's sex scenes).

As for Fate/Stay Night loved the game, love the fighter for it, and thinkt eh anime is decent. Miles better than that fucking blight Tsukihime.

I legitimately wanted to stab my eyes out during Shingetsutan Tsukihime just thinking of it as Tsukihime itself, it was just bad. The only way I was able to enjoy it just a teeny tiny bit more (just enough to make it bearable) was to think of it as something different. Yes I agree that Nasu just can't do sex scenes at all, but we love the bastard anyways for writing a compelling story that keeps people drawn in from start to finish. Not to mention the manga of Tsukihime and Melty Blood are great, I busted up at the reference to the Hokuto Shinken style from Hokuto no Ken AND the Copper Field references that Arcueid made but were cleverly censored on the smallest degree in the simplest ways possible.

The Big-O references were pretty good too and I swear to god the Akiha uppercut does to Mech-Hisui almost looks like it's making an ever so slight reference to Slayer's insta-kill from Guilty Gear and that thought alone made me just laugh my ass off. xD

But yeah I absolutely love the fighting games as well. I main C-Sion and sub F-Riesbyfe, C-Ryougi, and C-Ciel in Melty Blood Actress Again and I main Saber and sub Luviagelita, Assassin, and Saber Alter in Fate/Unlimited Codes. I also play Melty Blood Act Cadenza on the PC still for the sake of netplay and I main Sion and sub Ciel on that. Act Cadenza was also one of the main reasons why I got a USB adapter for my Dualshock 2, because I just can't play fighters on a keyboard anywhere near as proficiently as I can on a Dualshock/Sixaxis or an arcade stick. :P


God tier? Lol last time I checked, it was called "You suck at this game."

Mine didn't. But then again, mine didn't have clubs of any kind aside from sports teams. It was a small school.

I'm making my way through Ouran, and I'm going off and on about liking it. I think Haruhi is a little bit interesting as a man character, but Tamaki gets quite annoying to watch. I'm still not into the over exaggerated anime movements.

I just finished Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles and I have to say it really went over my head at the end.

I thought D-Gray Man was bad.

Still I enjoyed it, it was better in the beginning though, before all the convoluted plot twists.

Not where I lived, In my school they were around 10 or 20 guys out of 600 or so, who knew what anime was, much less watch it as much as I do, and I generally stood away far away as possible from them, considering all they really talk about is Naruto.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

The crackdown is spreading, and soon there will be no more online manga as we know it.

How can they expect people to pay for manga when they're charging $10 for something that can be read in a half-hour? The whole anime and manga industry wouldn't have to worry about piracy if they would just sell their products at a reasonable price. It's not all that bad for manga, but anime is insanely expensive.

Mangafox sucks anyway, since they decided to pull all the mature manga and further cement their status as a website for little girls who want to look at yaoi.

It's funny to see the reactions of the weeaboos as they see the disappearance of Naruto from the website.

That, and only select few titles get importes... in America. Imagine in other countries. One commentator suggested importing stuff on your own and learning Japanese... in the same breath as accusing piracy advvocated from being distanced from reality. Because, you know, learning Japanese is a walk in a ballpark and everyone has money to order friggin comicbooks from a foreign country, especially without knowing what the contents are beforehand.

I remember seeing that on TV almost ten years ago, unfortunatly I can't remember much about it. I think I may have only seen it once or twice, so I can't really say if I remember it being good or not.

I hope I won't have to resort to scurrying around search sites for Manga Sites that haven't been shut down.

I can't afford all the manga I read online. I can't fathom being stopped at a random point and never reading again either.

I mean, to be honest I didn't really spoil anything major unless you plan to watch the Bardock Movie

Because the thing I mentioned is sort of offhandedly mentioned in the actual series to make Freiza more intimidating.

I always thought Freiza was one of the cooler villains of the series.

How does the moon keep coming back again? I remember Master Roshi destroying it in Dragonball when he fought Goku at the martial arts tournament, then it somehow came back to be destroyed by Piccolo in DBZ, and then it came back again in time for Gohan to turn into a giant monkey in Tree of Might. And the course of nature is never screwed up by the moon being gone.

Yeah, and they should stick to the original better and not obscure/alter all the artwork (*cough*Viz*cough*).

That, and only select few titles get importes... in America. Imagine in other countries.

Because, you know, learning Japanese is a walk in a ballpark and everyone has money to order friggin comicbooks from a foreign country, especially without knowing what the contents are beforehand.

Unfortunately, the same people who denounce piracy also want to make said import patterns illegal in order to "protect domestic industry." Why the fuck should we pad their asses when they betray our trust?
