Shinryaku! Ika Musume is the best fit for what you're looking for that I can think of. Furigana with very little, if any, handwritten text that doesn't have furigana. ...

I do and don't have issues with how releases are obtained. something like irc, for example, I say get off your duff and take a few minutes to get acquainted with it. It ain't that hard. If I see an adfly link through which to get a release, I'll purposely a ...

As an ex-scanlator, definitely getting bombarded with wanting to know when the next chapter of something may be released. You go a couple days later than when a chapter may usually be released and you get flooded. If it's pushing a month or two then I c ...

It's not stupidity. It's because there are other out there who are going to do the series regardless. Those who host their own sites rely on ads or donations to pay server costs, so readers going somewhere else for faster scanlated chapters gets in t ...

Imo it's more of what type of character is speaking. Personalization should play a part, too. A rebel type character who talks very informally/slang wouldn't say that, but someone like a proper speaking butler would. ...

Don't claim any to be 100% true, but are the case for most of what I've seen.

Part of the reason why the US manga scene sucks is that it takes 3 freakin months+ for a volume to come out. There is no weekly magazine that's consistently imported without maybe a 2 week delay every so often. One day, the publishers are gonna have ...

There's only one thing that poses a problem with this, and that is, as mentioned, autoTLs. I've seen Google TL do its job well, the only problem that makes manga incompatible with autoTLs here is that mangaka use almost a whole nother form of Japa ...

Doesn't look like people entirely get what he's asking. Either it wasn't immediately being scanlated after the series first started and got quite a back up or sometimes staff disappear and scanlating gets haulted. It's being released weekly ...

I hate shoujo/josei for one reason and one reason only. The art. Stories are probably a lot like any shounen/seinen and I might like them, but I can't stand the art. They draw it to appeal to the ladies, and they do a good job of it in my opinion. ...

Most take their hate for them too far and don't give any a chance. Granted 99% are horrible, but then you have the select few that are actually good or better. IE: Nothing better than Brian Drummond as Vegeta when he realizes Gohan tricked him and got aw ...

I don't like it. The whole point is that nobody should be making money from doing this. We don't want readers to be making money while we're not trying to. That's what the whole thing's about. This just sidesteps the real issue.

There's one major underlying difference to this than to scanlating, and I don't mean the pay. They send you a number of titles of their choosing, and judging by their affiliated sites it's mostly shoujo titles, you pick something out of what they send ...
