Sorry, I keep getting them confused, I switch from reading manga, manhwa, doujinshi and back to American comics, after a while, you get dizzy...

I'm curious, what kind of stylistic differences are there between manga and manhwa, visually or storytelling-wise?

Not many. Its read left to right, characters have moral stances more similar to what western characters would think/do, that's about all I've noticed. I've only read like 2-3 Manhwa though.

People say Manhwa supposedly has more "life-like" and less "cartoony" character designs, but I can't say I've noticed much myself.

Ah, The Weirdness. Still going strong. Cheers to it and everyone who has made it since before my time on Snafu.

None too shabby, Tuor. Hope life has treated you and the others well the last, what? 5? 6 years? More like 9 since my last real run on here. "Where does the time go?" and all that.

I'm doing all right, 3rd year of university now. What brought you back around here?

Was giving another online buddy of mine from the last few years a history lesson. Came to the Snafu part, thought to myself "wonder how they're doing?". Thought I'd drop by.

Coolness. What do you think of the changes?

Honestly, it doesn't look like much has changed other than minor aesthetic cleanups. They work.

Never heard anyone described as nifty before. That's another plus.

I hear nifty all the time. It was a former coworkers nickname. Was actually Nicky. Nifty stuck better.

Well hello there Spruce. I think I remember your name from when I first joined but I don't think I saw you around that much. Either way good to see you around.

Think that's about the right time frame, since he left before Quin and Zel ever met him.

Hopefully he'll be one of the few folks to actually stay after disappearing.

I think I vaguely remember him.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.
