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?

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 ...

(31 posts, 3741 views) Posted: 1123d 3h, 44m 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 ...

Definitely someone who rates the extremes.

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 ...

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 ...

It's probably the end of the series we know as Claymore in name, then a sequel or a name change will come about.
