Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 4146 views) Posted: 912d 15h, 34m ago by akuma_river in News
All the Republicans like to say, it's the Free Market. And it is. Just like before the big companies are making things too difficult so people came up with their own way. They made it cheaper, faster, and better quality than the big guys and the big guys want to ki ...

(170 posts, 14167 views) Posted: 912d 15h, 59m ago by akuma_river in News
Reborn isn't even being distributed in the US anymore. VIZ killed it pretty bad by making it a gag manga and kept it up and even then fans were buying it and laughing at the mistakes and posting it up on the internet about how horrible the translations were...but t ...

Well shoot. I've noticed a bunch of Gintama fanfiction from a few favorite authors on FF.net so I've dl'ing the volumes to see if I like the series.

Not all the translators were bad.

Those who worked on the Saiyuki series were pretty good and gave a lot of information on the history and culture references. Better than the scanlations I saw of the series. ...

H2 ENDING! Can someone please explain the H2 Ending as I am abit confused
(12 posts, 7135 views) Posted: 1227d 2h, 26m ago by akuma_river in H2
It's not leading on if you don't know what type of love it is you have for a person.

Hikari and Hiro knew each other most of their lives. Their families are friends with each other and it feels more like family than anything.

They will always love each other. ...

Sorry to burst your bubble but I'm keeping tabs on the Japanese news networks and people I follow from Japan and there is at least 3 different sites in which hundreds of bodies are washed up. Offical death toll is now about 687 but that is those who are coun ...

New Poll - Manga E-books
(23 posts, 898 views) Posted: 1276d 17h, 25m ago by akuma_river in News
It is a misconception that you buy anything with e-books.

All you are doing is licensing the product. You can't move it from device to device. It might get erased at any damn time without your knowledge, consent, or even choice to prevent it.

Look at what happ ...
Julian Assange and Wikileaks
(102 posts, 8436 views) Posted: 1355d 15h, 42m ago by akuma_river in Chatter Box
Trov, have you read any of the newspaper articles coming out on the cables? These are journalists who have spent most of their careers working in the field and they know what they are talking about. They are also the ones who told Wikileaks which names to re ...
Julian Assange and Wikileaks
(102 posts, 8436 views) Posted: 1355d 16h, 59m ago by akuma_river in Chatter Box
Assange is not being biased. He does not go get the information, whistleblowers bring him the information.

As for what the information is. It is cable dispatches from 250 US embassys to Washington from 1966-2010.

As for Russia and China, there is already issues ...
Julian Assange and Wikileaks

I think he is a hero. A hero by definition is someone who does what is right no matter the consequences or threat to their life.

As for death threats and the USG trying to kill him? I don't think the WH would okay it but they wouldn't exactly be upset if some ...

what would you do if MU got shut down
(89 posts, 7895 views) Posted: 1488d 13h, 3m ago by akuma_river in Manga General
I've used MU for so long to keep tract of manga information that I believe without it I would just lose touch with manga. It is just so much easier to find out if a series is complete, who is scanlating it, if it's licensed, if the license is being treated well, and w ...

I don't think I can last. I'm an online student and I'm freelancing in designing books (typesetting the inside) I can't work without my computer and I need the internet to communicate with and send my files to the people I work with.

I think it is about time.

Both of them have been struggling since the very beginning to try to keep the ideas flowing. They are stressed as hell. Not really enjoying it. It keeps dropping in ratings. There are so many issues with it that I wonder WHY it is only now that they t ...

Quote from ahoaho
Yeah, some of that stuff listed in that act seem a bit unconstitutional.

However, artists have rights, too. Whether or not they choose to release their work at large should be up to them. I know myself, as a musician, am thrilled to be able to get my ...

This is semi-relevant since it has to do with p2p file sharing.
