New Poll - Hardest to Scanlate
(28 posts, 1801 views) Posted: 288d 0h, 48m ago by Harimau in News
Certain Seinen, because they cover niche topics like calligraphy or Italian cooking or history that often need additional research, and probably tend to have a fair amount of text more than shounen or others. ...
Group Links Update 2
(45 posts, 4618 views) Posted: 288d 1h, 15m ago by Harimau in News
I think it's a good idea.

Hopefully with the lure of free(?) advertising for their products, content owners back off MU for a bit. But I'm concerned it could also make content owners more "aware" of MU. Can anyone please weigh in?

Should M ...

New Poll - Scanlation Anger
(138 posts, 8806 views) Posted: 337d 16h, 19m ago by Harimau in News
Tough question. I picked #4 because it's happened most often (it seems), but #3 is probably more true for me. #2 would apply, but I tend to read a whole cluster of projects from a given group, so there's always something to read. #1 doesn't see ...
New Poll - Imperfect Art and/or Story
(31 posts, 2162 views) Posted: 414d 18h, 56m ago by Harimau in News
I think it strongly depends on the kind of manga and the story they're trying to tell. A good action manga lets you see the movement of the characters - too much detail can actually be a drawback as you lose the sense of motion and it feels like a static but be ...

My favourite characters are always the smart ones.

New Poll - Rating Series
(35 posts, 2531 views) Posted: 504d 23h, 37m ago by Harimau in News
Definitely someone who rates the extremes.

Usually I have to be impressed enough to go to the series page and rate it a 10, or on the other hand, disgusted enough to go to the series page and rate it a 1, before promptly removing it from my reading list. ...

What?!
Damn. I really liked some of the shorter series (like 4 volumes), and I love Kimi no Knife. I'm very glad to hear it'll be picked up by IMS though. ...

I guess the first, shall we say, "embrace", didn't make the list.

After running all the way down the list, the word "first" stopped meaning anything to me. I guess I'll go with first vacation - I haven't been on a proper holiday (o ...
New Poll - Side Stories
(15 posts, 1628 views) Posted: 722d 15h, 17m ago by Harimau in News
What this guy said.

Basically, it's about quality. So in general:
Main story quality > Side story arc quality > occasional one chapter side story quality
The reason I put one chapter side-story as lowest on the list is because, generally, you can't really d ...
New Poll - Paper Quality
(16 posts, 1859 views) Posted: 735d 18h, 1m ago by Harimau in News
I think it's more a matter of distribution.
I mean, the appeal of scanlation is that it's digital, it's discreet, it's "on-demand" and it's DRM-free - not necessarily that it's free.

Scanlated material is more convenient in the ...

That guy looks exactly like the guy from Accel World. lol.

Is this any good, btw? What kind of series would be similar to this in terms of the plot or genre or experience? ...
Page sizes in scanlation: Stick between 1000 and 1600 pixels high.

I'm not sure if this has come up before, but I thought I'd mention it here now, because...

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of scanlators use HUGE page-sizes (for distribution, not talking about what resolutions they work at), I'm talking 2400 pixels ...
nyan koi cancelled?
(5 posts, 4693 views) Posted: 832d 18h, 3m ago by Harimau in Nyan Koi!
So, for some reason nyan koi has disappeared from Flex Comix' website
http://flex-comix.jp/nyankoi/
as well as the yahoo! comics website

126 = CLAYMORE ~ END
(59 posts, 20007 views) Posted: 871d 23h, 46m ago by Harimau in Claymore
Quote from DragoZERO
There is some speculation that this is due to a new law and arguments over rights with Yagi. Other authors are in the same situation. You can read this blog: http://astronerdboy.blogspot.com/2012/03/new-proposed-japane se-law-reason ...
126 = CLAYMORE ~ END
(59 posts, 20007 views) Posted: 872d 9h, 52m ago by Harimau in Claymore
Quote from VitaX
It's probably the end of the series we know as Claymore in name, then a sequel or a name change will come about.

I agree with this. There'll be a Claymore Act 2, or something. ...
Please explain something about this series.
