Manga/fun stuff in 日本語 (Japanese) - suggestions?
(6 posts, 269 views) Posted: 29d 0h, 45m ago by cmertb in I'm Looking For...
1. Read shounen or shoujo manga since they have furigana (400 kanji is insufficient otherwise, you'd spend too much time looking them up).
2. Most popular manga have raws that can be found through google. E.g. google "yotsubato manga raw" ...
Mangatraders Hacked, and How it Affects MU
(81 posts, 24173 views) Posted: 46d 7h, 9m ago by cmertb in News
There is some thread on reddit discussing the MT issue, and there are screenshots posted there that show admin access to MU and to MAL (with the assumption that admin account passwords were gained from the MT crack since some admin used the same pa ...
Watermarks in Scanlations

And none of them were related to the source I got the manga from, which is even more silly.

Precisely. You got the scans from somewhere the scanlators didn't want you to get them from, and you're annoyed by watermarks on them. It appea ...
Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(46 posts, 5108 views) Posted: 81d 6h, 41m ago by cmertb in Suggestions & Bugs
I wouldn't become "distressed" if CR picked up any of my projects. On the contrary, I would gladly drop them and let them run with it. Scanlation is not about stealing business from legit publishers.

Also, while I think that since CR is technically a pub ...
Getting manga raws from ebooks
(22 posts, 567 views) Posted: 87d 1h, 47m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Hmm, so this procedure sounds like more of a pain in the ass than buying paper volumes, debinding, and scanning. I should ask experienced scanners though, just in case. But as far as I know, if your scanner has an autofeeder, you can manage this in like 30 minute ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3114 views) Posted: 97d 10h, 1m ago by cmertb in News
My concern on this topic only goes as far as to point out that the results of this poll don't reflect any useful reality. Job done, I believe. ...

So you're saying it's not the author of the poll, it's this site's classification that's being stupid. How is that better? ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3114 views) Posted: 98d 2h, 14m ago by cmertb in News
Even if you rape the dictionary definition of the term and claim that a demographic (i.e. target audience) is a genre, it still doesn't change the fact that this poll presents overlapping options as mutually exclusive. I think my post above contains a perfect analogy ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic

Q: What kind of food do you eat most often?
1) Salty
2) Sweet
3) Italian
4) Green
5) Red
6) Meat
7) Processed
8) Low fat

I think the question of this poll is pretty clear, and if you don't think so, you're just being pedantic.

Pretend they correctly labeled it as genre.

Then five of the choices are not genres. It's wrong either way. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3114 views) Posted: 99d 1h, 27m ago by cmertb in News
Only four of the options are actually demographics (age + gender). The rest are fetishes that can fall under various demographics, with hentai standing outside and puzzled, since it can also contain any of those fetishes. Confused choices, messy poll, invalid result. ...
Translations to English

Quote from momimomi
I beg to differ. Japanese insults may look tame in literal translation, but to a native they are quite as effective as English strong words because honestly it's all relative.

It's not entirely relative. Sure, you can be insulted with mild wo ...
Translations to English
(14 posts, 419 views) Posted: 109d 3h, 22m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Japanese swear words are few and tame even by English standards. If you see a lot of strong swearing in a translation from Japanese, it means the translator is taking quite a few liberties.

In general, your question has nothing to do with Japanese. Literary translat ...

Hmm, interesting question... Obviously, it's disrespectful to your work to just replace it with someone else's summary, even though there was nothing wrong with yours. I guess this is a problem with the current MU system, that even though it allows any ...
Chinese-English translator needed for manhua
(0 posts, 143 views) Posted: 110d 4h, 21m ago by cmertb in Recruitment
Colourful Abyss is looking to restart our long stalled manhua project Collapse of the World as We Know It. Without your translations, it will be just another series that will whither away uncompleted. And you know not much manhua is being scanlated to begin with.

Dropped manga series?
(3 posts, 256 views) Posted: 111d 2h, 50m ago by cmertb in Manga General
You should make one. Just go through all manga here sorted by the number of people reading, and check each one to see when the last release was and what the scanlator has to say about the status. Because yes, it would be somewhat informative and even us ...

About groups that closed this year...
(30 posts, 3175 views) Posted: 170d 13h, 54m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Actually, I looked up release statistics on MU and I can say that the number of releases per day has been stagnant since January 2009. Until then scanlation had been growing, and at that point the growth stopped completely. It's not shrinking yet, though, just b ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 3939 views) Posted: 181d 23h, 40m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Well, it seems to me most manhwa scanlations people read here have nothing to do with wushu. I wonder why those aren't selling in Japan, even though they're as popular (if not more popular) as manga at least in scanlated form.

Also, I still don' ...
Why aren't manhwas ever made into animes?
(45 posts, 3939 views) Posted: 183d 1h, 28m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Are you confusing mangwa and manhwa by any chance? Manhwa refers specifically to Korean comics, while what you're describing seems to relate more to manhua, i.e. Chinese comics. Not sure what mangwa is though? Pronunciation of 漫画 ...

Well, before wondering if a manhwa can be made into an anime, I'd like to know if Japanese read manhwa in the first place? Does anyone know? I know k-drama is quite popular in Japan...

Just FYI, probably most joint project end in breakup and mutual recriminations. Majority of group leaders I know would never agree to a joint project. And you're proposing something even more advanced. ...
