Village Idiot Scanlations is recruiting!
(42 posts, 7677 views) Posted: 34d 19h, 30m ago by licorice in Recruitment
We've gotten quite a few typesetter applicants, thank you! We would love more experienced cleaners and some translators that are interested in picking up mature-themed works as well (1-4 volumes)! ...
New Poll - Least Favorite Genre
(33 posts, 1573 views) Posted: 39d 0h, 25m ago by licorice in News
I voted harem, which is often involved with "school life" which I try to avoid. There is always an exception or two (for school life), but not for harem. Over it. ...
New Poll - Guys with Long Hair

Lol. I don't care. ...
Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 1267 views) Posted: 48d 17h, 17m ago by licorice in Manga General
A few reasons:

1) It's FUN.
2) The overall community is wonderful.
3) I've invested a lot of time (and money) in something that I love and I have no regrets.

For me, it's never been about giving back to the community. I scanlate for myself and I conti ...
New Poll - Wrong Genre
(20 posts, 1087 views) Posted: 48d 19h, 5m ago by licorice in News
Well, I guess I'm in the minority. >Only read it if it other people say it's good. "Other people" meaning friends whose tastes are similar to my own, not random anons. Usually I'd skip it entirely, BUT because they're a favorite ...

Still in need of a few translators and some cleaners and typesetters! ...

First bump in 2.5 years!

Recruiting translators and experienced cleaners and typesetters.

Translators are needed for the following series:
Yorukumo
Valkyria Engine
Ore ga Heroine o Tasukesugite Sekai ga Little Mokushiroku!?

Cleaners and typesetters for all types ...
New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 1453 views) Posted: 64d 14h, 11m ago by licorice in News
I would say my tastes not only did a 180, but they're much narrower. Started reading shoujo and now I rarely, rarely read it. Long-running series that have kept my interest aside, I avoid high school settings like the plague. I also really enjoy gore and horror a ...
New Poll - Reread a Series
(17 posts, 1335 views) Posted: 119d 16h, 57m ago by licorice in News
Once and I don't have that many favorites. Those few are also relatively short (less than 7 volumes) so... ...

A technicality... ...
New Poll - Other Manga Activities
(21 posts, 2267 views) Posted: 194d 17h, 24m ago by licorice in News
I've been scanlating for years and don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I enjoy the community aspect of it more than the process itself. ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4232 views) Posted: 216d 23h, 16m ago by licorice in News
It shows who really cares and who really doesn't. ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4232 views) Posted: 217d 19h, 2m ago by licorice in News
The amount of non-scanlators responding to the poll shows in its results. Poor quality work is NOT better than no release at all. Shoddy work means distractions everywhere and the inability to enjoy what you're reading. ...
New Poll - Encouraging More Research

Definitely historical events! ...
New Poll - Best Josei
(20 posts, 2262 views) Posted: 298d 0h, 21m ago by licorice in News
Quote from calstine
Well, my vote goes to 07-Ghost, hands down. I've never even read any of the others, though 7 Seeds, Sakamichi no Apollon and Bokura no Kiseki have been on my 'to read' list for a while now. Generally I prefer Comic Zero ...
New Poll - Best Seinen
(30 posts, 2994 views) Posted: 304d 13h, 4m ago by licorice in News
Ugh this list is awful. Boring, mundane, same old same old action or fantasy. I liked Punpun a lot so that's what I voted for. ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 3776 views) Posted: 312d 0h, 15m ago by licorice in News
Most people think it's shoujo. Because you know, "only girls like romance." ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 4130 views) Posted: 312d 0h, 18m ago by licorice in News
Skip Beat is awful. I'm voting for LSL and Koi dano Ai dano. Why isn't Taiyou no Ie on that list?! ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 1860 views) Posted: 335d 23h, 20m ago by licorice in News
Most of my current collection comes from Kinokuniya. Anything I can't order through them I get from Amazon Japan or a friend that lives in Japan (especially if it's secondhand). My English manga used to come from Borders/Barnes Noble/Waldens ...
New Poll - Manga Availability
(33 posts, 2858 views) Posted: 352d 12h, 22m ago by licorice in News
For me, they're available in most major book stores (although I personally never use them). I'm able to buy most books directly from a Japanese retailer and have it shipped directly to the store at no extra cost (if it's not available in the store). A ...
New Poll - Genders and Demographics
(28 posts, 2916 views) Posted: 374d 11h, 30m ago by licorice in News
I didn't really like this poll, but voted according to my current reading list. I am also a big fan of josei. Anything geared toward an older audience, but I'd be lying if I said there haven't been shounen and shoujo I've liked. ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 17185 views) Posted: 406d 6h, 47m ago by licorice in News
^ Well, that's that then. You allow one novel, you allow them all etc (or not). Can't wait for that fateful day. ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 17185 views) Posted: 406d 10h, 38m ago by licorice in News
Honestly, doujins aren't even the biggest problem. Rules regarding them and how they are added to the database have been in the FAQ for years. I assume it was addressed before someone else could bring it up. ...

You do realize that many LN can trace their roots to WN.


Uh, and? If they have been published by official publishers (as a light novel) and are related to manga, they stay. The admin never said the word "remove". He and the rest of the admins cou ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate 2
(54 posts, 4239 views) Posted: 406d 20h, 40m ago by licorice in News
Definitely shounen and shoujo although I still read more shoujo than shounen. As an older reader, I prefer to read about stories happening somewhere other than school grounds... ...
