(2 posts, 65 views) Posted: 1d 7h, 24m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Recruitment
Who is X-F? What part/chapters exactly? I have some old scripts of yet to be scanlated chapters that are searching for a group to work on them.

Ah, no, Japanese is my major and I lean(ed) toward studying social issues through popular culture. Both topics my department doesn't favor at all, which is why i called quits... to many obstacles on home territory to even get a good chance to go out :x

Reading your last comet you might be homoromantic.... actually there's another word that that describes tendency or openness to be with the same sex but not have actual sexual relationship.
Also we women are by default more open to fluid sexuality, that' ...
GFantasy isn't a shounen publication
(2 posts, 459 views) Posted: 157d 5h, 40m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Actually that means both tags, shoujo and shounen, should be added to each series if anything. ...
Manga about Scanlation/Scanlating process?
(5 posts, 534 views) Posted: 168d 8h, 59m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
While this will probably never happen, it sure would be good just so people would realized you don't really need a set of skills to be useful/help in scanlation group. ...
Renta "licensed"
(12 posts, 833 views) Posted: 184d 13h, 44m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Quote
Renta is a distributing site/platform that other companies use.

And many publishers make English releases exclusive to Renta as their only choice of digital distribution (just like Amazon is to some English publishers). So original publisher is still someone else ...
Renta "licensed"
(12 posts, 833 views) Posted: 186d 13h, 50m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
I'd like to point out that using term licensed here is not accurate. And marking books available in English on Renta as licensed is wrong.
This and similar issues was actually discuses on several occasions already:

Comico webtoon link
(5 posts, 818 views) Posted: 336d 9h, 45m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
It was my understanding that line manga is up her only because it's available in English.
Comico&pixiv&other online comic/manga is not because it's only in Japanese. ...

Hmm... I could easily read at least ch1 (i didn't bother with more) without needing the coins. You just close the pop-up and you're good to go, I suppose... ...
English releases by Renta
(12 posts, 1565 views) Posted: 376d 16h, 17m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
I wasn't implying to announce them as scanlation releases, but just provide info on works page that that content is available in English for pursue (ugh, I see my topic title may have been misleading here :x).

Renta and BookWalker are in a way like DMG. And D ...
English releases by Renta
(12 posts, 1565 views) Posted: 376d 21h, 12m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Oh yeah! And I forgot of Pixiv as well. I asked about it in the past but got turned down. My approach was wrong but the work is clearly separated and released in English now. Pixiv is the publisher, but it still doesn't count as license per see... well at least as far a ...
English releases by Renta
(12 posts, 1565 views) Posted: 377d 4h, 22m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Can there be added option to indicate a title is allowable in English on Renta, or write it as such somewhere else?
Renta is not a licensing company as far as I know, just a retailer who offers publishers who chose to use them to put their titles in English online as we ...

(16 posts, 2046 views) Posted: 467d 5h, 53m ago by Chibi-Chibi in News
Yeah, but not having 18+ and not allowing shounen-ai, or shoujo-ai are two completely different things -.-;;

@PansyWansyLinsy: some of the works are labeled as shoujo too (since all that is actually subganre of shoujo) so maybe some of the works you wanted to no ...

Donate to Mangaka/publisher directly?
(2 posts, 469 views) Posted: 654d 8h, 51m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Manga General
As far as I know there is no way to direly donate to mangaka or publisher.
However if buying a book, but avoiding shipping is good enough you can always buy digital manga. There's a surprisingly big collection of titles out there available for digital sales. And ...
Adding The 'Bara' tag as a Demographic or genre
(4 posts, 1044 views) Posted: 688d 6h, 30m ago by Chibi-Chibi in Suggestions & Bugs
Bara as a tag is not wrong. Bara simply indicates muscular man and not a genre.
Well it may be understood as such here on the west (lol, same issue as Yaoi, just that at one point yaoi was actually a thing in Japan).
In Japan people don't really understand wh ...

Hmm... while I do like that you have a good intention, let me help to clear something.

I hope you're aware of the meaning behind word "tolerance". Just in case let me give it here as well:
"the ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behavior that one dislikes or disagrees with."

Does this refer to greasemonkey or the mangaupdates script?
And it's Chrome limited right?
This script stopped working for me couple of days (maybe 2 weeks) ago and I'm using Mozilla. I haven't changed anything drastic that I know of, any id ...
