New Poll - Death of the MC
(35 posts, 3194 views) Posted: 700d 12h, 5m ago by ZL11 in News
There's a "I don't know/don't care" choice missing... I want whatever works best. ...

Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 10449 views) Posted: 700d 22h, 6m ago by ZL11 in News
It's not an issue of the online readers; it's an issue of PROFIT. Or did you not actually read what was going on with Sura?

A scanlator's "purpose," as you put it, is not to gain money for their efforts. It is generally to introduce new ma ...
Sura's Place/JanimeS Closing
(77 posts, 10449 views) Posted: 700d 22h, 14m ago by ZL11 in News
Consider it like this: unless it was scanlated, MangaFox wouldn't post it, right? So it's not the creator they are attempted to defraud and steal from, it's the scanlator's work.

There are NO scanlators (that I'm aware of at least) who ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate
(156 posts, 15659 views) Posted: 773d 18h, 49m ago by ZL11 in News
One of THE worst polls ever, and there have been a few. We should just give up the ghost on the poll. There's a new poll idea: ditch or keep the poll. I pretty much stop answering them.

I just checked the comments on this one because of the (unsurprising) ha ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 10503 views) Posted: 951d 14h, 9m ago by ZL11 in News
One of the worst poll questions ever. Like this hasn't ever been a topic in the forums forever, and all it does is get people mad. It's like talking religion or politics. Change the topic SOON. ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2038 posts, 493020 views) Posted: 1006d 12h, 44m ago by ZL11 in Manga General
I was thinking about anime and the guy in Campione! versus the hero in Deadman's Wonderland, Ganta, and thinking about how much I hate Ganta. His whiny attitude that he has to switch into a 'heroic' resolution afterwards irritates me as a wat ...

Yeah, that type of government control over the Internet is ONLY in China, and it's not working that well. As long as the Internet remains fluid and cloudy, there will be ways around it. After all, you can't stop the signal... ...

(93 posts, 5482 views) Posted: 1151d 4h, 6m ago by ZL11 in News
Yes, yes, yes. Whatever. I don't actually care one way or the other. And translating from one language to another is difficult; this gem goes into the DUH bin. Still, even if translation is difficult, choosing the BEST word is essential. Regardless, this is all (as has b ...

LMAO. If you say so, fool. If you say so. Viz has made so many bad translation errors, I could write a BOOK on it, especially in the beginning. Why else would they have had to RETRANSLATE several of their series, on TOP of "flopping" them? People w ...

Yeah, I'm finding this amusing. To quote Mark Twain, "The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug."

Just saying. ...

Hmm... really? How fascinating, seeing as I don't care about the topic. After all, I'm not the one complaining the whole thread through and calling people sc*m. Well, I don't care either way, little mosquito. Enjoy your day. ...

Holy cow, you b*itch a lot. Does this sh*t even matter? Is it REALLY affecting you and yours to any large degree? Are you closing down shop because of it? Just let it go, man. You're going to go bald before you're 30 at this rate... ...
MangaStream Drops VIZ Media Licensed Series

Yeah... I've been reading manga since before TokyoPop bought out Mixx and scanlating in one form or another for as long. I have a box of Mixx Magazines to prove it.

They ditched "MangaBlast" and my other favorite magazines, leaving me with ...
New Poll - Scanlation Watermarks
(113 posts, 8067 views) Posted: 1160d 3h, 45m ago by ZL11 in News
The horse is high when you're sitting on it, no matter which side of the fence you're on. Watermarks are a control mechanism for a lot of groups, regardless if things get uploaded to awful online readers. It's amusing hubris to think that, once so ...
so there's romance in yankee kun?

This is the ending information, so don't read it if you don't want to know what happens...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It never goes ANY where in the romance department. Adachi disappears in the like the last volume. There's not any closure. Th ...
New Poll - For an Essay
(97 posts, 6436 views) Posted: 1259d 19h, 21m ago by ZL11 in News
Yes... the nail that sticks out is hammered down and all that. I didn't bother voting; it was too broad a question. I'm neither Japanese nor a weebo, and I would guess the only way you could justify this question is by saying Japan is still a rather culturally ho ...

Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 1294d 8h, 26m ago by ZL11 in News
Hmmm... I can accept those reasons. Unfortunately, I've read a couple of scanlators' sites where they SAY, "We are watermarking to this extent to punish EVERYONE for people sharing. When the sharing stops, the watermarking stops." ...
Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 1295d 6h, 33m ago by ZL11 in News
Um, just in case that's directed at me, I buy a lot of hardcopy in Japanese and English. That's a "just in case." People complaining and people doing something about it are two different things. I can imagine the complaints, but it continues, bo ...
Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 1295d 14h, 33m ago by ZL11 in News
...yeah, I'm going to reiterate a statement I made earlier: HOW does watermarking actually affect the aggregation? Explain this to me, please, I'm begging here. No one has told me HOW consistent and blatant watermarking solves this issue. Is there P ...
Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 1295d 19h, 46m ago by ZL11 in News
How does it solve the problem? He's not banned off the site. He can still get scanlations and post them to aggregators without permission, only this time, not hampered by MU. It's all MU could do as a final resort to keep scanlators happy, but it's ...
