you never liked comics like x-men or spiderman?
i am not a big fan of the american comics
Marvel > DC
comics do not belong here
They don't really seem too enthusiastic about being added to this sub forum.
Japanese anime/manga is way too different from American comics. They should not be together at all. We've already built quite a decent sub-community within the anime forum and have had FTP/direct downloads for a hell of a long time before the comic thread was even created. This shit is only going to ruin what we've established.
i think they meant to say anime, manga, and jpop
There's a discussion going on, and as a moderator im personally against comics being added to the anime forum. The difference between Anime + American Marvel Comics is far to big to correlate it within one forum.
I don't see what the big deal is. It's not like this forum is so busy that there's no room for threads about Western comics.
They have an FTP set up for sharing their own stuff, too.
Why don't you take a look at our forum? We already have a thread for like every single anime series. If you add that for every single comic book, both Marvel and DC, and you're going to have one giant clusterfuck. It's going to make navigating through everything very difficult. I don't know about the rest of the people here, but I consider myself a big contributor to the anime forum. I personally feel insulted that people are just going to come in and ruin what I helped to build.
I had a whole reply all typed up, but this debate is and I don't care enough either way.
I guess I give everyone too much credit by thinking that our 10 active threads per day can withstand 10 additional active threads with Western comic topics.
I have no problem with them getting their own forum. I don't see why it has to be shared with ours though. Like Darketernal said, they are too different to put together in one forum just out of convenience.
i dont mind them, cmon guys
IMO, I think merging Comics with Manga/Anime is bad idea. It'll be confusing and it's too different.
no fackin camics!!! yes i said camics. what you want fooo
Unfortunately I agree with Ninjak, TUN and the rest who oppose the merge. Not that I'm not for comics, I love comics and I grew up with them, they share my love with anime/manga, but I can immediately tell tons of threads are going to be popping up and then people are going to be asking is this anime? manga? or comics? There will just be too much confusion and information bouncing back and forth to tell whats what. I am for Comics having their own forum, or even a sub forum, but a total merge isn't practical.
Weak. Adding Comics to the Anime/Manga forum is no different in my mind than adding a bunch of new shonen titles to a library of other shonen titles.
So you're saying comics are pieces of shit just like shounen anime?
I'm saying your negative opinions of western comics and shounen anime/manga should not dictate the future of OT.
It's not like I'm the only one against it. I don't see why you have a problem with comics getting a separate forum in the format that I proposed in the other thread.
