“A really good place for art in japan culture”

Adam y.

If you are an anime fan, you're going to like this, its a website where users can submit their drawings online for others to view. Just like deviantart, their ads don't redirect users to malware. I especially love when users submit any anime characters that are 8-head proportion, as well as "pokemon anthropomorphism" (). The only malicious ads I faced are the mobile site (touch.pixiv.net), thankfully, recently I have no issues so far.

“horrible job at cancelling subscription.”

One thing is that Pixiv needs to work on cancelling membership subscription. You cannot delete your credit card. And even if I requested customer service they only said to cancel it on google apps or paypal. You cannot rely on those methods. I want to physically remove my card. Not through google or paypal because it's not on my options. As much as I love the site they have shitty ass methods to cancel your subscription. Make it easier next time instead of relying on google and paypal.

It's a pretty good site, tbh.

The layout is wee haphazard but it's easy to use. The users tend to be friendlier and the admins are quite accommodating.

Sure, besides some of the more "questionable" artwork, it's an overall permissive site but, with a Pixiv Premium, that problem can be fixed.

They could, however, let you have more than a 200 tag limit on a blacklist.

I think this is the best site for artists.
I love all the features, and there aren't arrogant jerks, cyber bullies here
