New Group Policy
Due to some recent developments, we have decided to slightly change our scanlator group policy. As usual, for a scanlator group to be approved on MangaUpdates, you must have at least one of the following:
  • Website
  • IRC channel
  • Forum
  • Twitter feed
  • Facebook page

The change is that you may now provide a Batoto group link in lieu of a website (so put it in the website field). An example of such a link for AquaStar Fansubs is here:

Please note that due to the developments linked above, this Batoto link will not be visible to the public. It is for our purposes so that we can easily verify the legitimacy of a release.

PS: If you are backlogging release entries for groups that were previously not allowed, please provide the actual date of release.

New Poll - Year 2013
It's almost the end of the year, so might as well do this kind of poll (as suggested by our member Ching27). How was the last year for you?

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you still use IRC?
Always! - votes: 722 (5.6%)
Only sometimes - votes: 914 (7.1%)
Only to download stuff - votes: 1874 (14.6%)
Used to, but not anymore. It's dying - votes: 2152 (16.8%)
Have never used IRC before - votes: 2693 (21%)
What is IRC? - votes: 4463 (34.8%)
There were 12818 total votes.
The poll ended: December 28th 2013

Hmm, results are still pretty similar as 2 years ago. I guess IRC isn't dying as fast as we thought, eh?

Happy Holidays!
Happy holidays, and a happy new year from everyone on the MU team! Hasn't been a particularly good year, especially with what happened recently, but let's keep it up with another one!

New Poll - IRC Usage
Our member rincewind1990 suggested that we do an IRC poll again. It's been almost exactly 2 years since the last one (with 30.6% not even knowing what IRC is). So 2 years later, how has it declined? For me personally, I almost never log in anymore...

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Main web browser
Internet Explorer 7 - votes: 144 (0.7%)
Internet Explorer 8 - votes: 98 (0.5%)
Internet Explorer 9 - votes: 51 (0.3%)
Internet Explorer 10 - votes: 68 (0.3%)
Internet Explorer 11 - votes: 274 (1.4%)
Mozilla Firefox - votes: 10009 (50.1%)
Google Chrome - votes: 7825 (39.1%)
Safari - votes: 635 (3.2%)
Opera - votes: 730 (3.7%)
Other - votes: 158 (0.8%)
There were 19992 total votes.
The poll ended: December 21st 2013

If we ever do this poll again, I'll combine all the IE choices together. Interestingly enough, all the IE votes equal all the Safari votes. And Opera unexpectedly beats both of them, which really surprises me because no one I know uses Opera.

I'm curious about Safari. Does that mean that most of our users don't use Macs? Or does it mean that the Mac users don't use Safari?

New Poll - Web Browser
If you've been a long time user, you'll realize that this is the third time we've done this poll. No matter! It's been almost 4 years since the last iteration (and also 3 new versions of IE). You know the drill. Back in 2010, it was Firefox that won with a massive 66.9%. How much popularity has Chrome gained?

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Which do you think is hardest to scanlate?
Shounen - votes: 1869 (10.1%)
Shoujo - votes: 2215 (11.9%)
Seinen - votes: 2576 (13.9%)
Josei - votes: 2764 (14.9%)
Shounen-ai - votes: 1330 (7.2%)
Yaoi - votes: 1383 (7.4%)

Yuri - votes: 2200 (11.8%)
Hentai - votes: 2049 (11%)
There were 18582 total votes.
The poll ended: December 14th 2013

Apparently it's not hard to scanlate shounen-ai and yaoi.

English Scanlators Only
To all those people getting submitting non-English scanlators as groups, please stop. We are an English website and only accept English scanlation groups. I'm getting tired of rejecting your submissions over and over (and recently there's been more attempts, hence this news post).

The only exception is if you also do English releases. But if I take a quick glance at your submitted website and can't find any English there, I'm just gonna reject your group.

PS: The funny thing is that I hope these non-English scanlators can read English, otherwise this news post serves no purpose to its intended audience.
