Manga about Scanlation/Scanlating process?
(4 posts, 187 views) Posted: 1d 2h, 11m ago by cmertb in Manga General
I suspect it would be a pretty boring manga.

The only exciting stuff that ever happens in scanaltion is release wars with groups trading accusations in public. ...
New Scanlation Group for Newbies, but I need an experienced person as a co-leader I guess, in addition older groups I can't describe it in the 125 characters, pls read

Quote from hurafloyd
The best way is to have a proofreader that knows the language check your translation.

My whole experience tells me that this isn't true. I've been on both ends of TLC, and it is generally not a good thing for anyone. It makes the T ...
Manga reader website that sponsors the author.
(7 posts, 814 views) Posted: 30d 2h, 14m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Is it supposed to be a non-profit site? Then it will run like crap, like most volunteer projects.

If it is a for profit site (after paying the mangaka or rights owner), then why would scanlators work for it for free?

If it also pays scanlators, then it becomes non-viable as a bus ...
The SFX Issue
(43 posts, 5758 views) Posted: 30d 3h, 31m ago by cmertb in Manga General
I would prefer to have sfx translated for the sake of completeness, but only if the cost of doing that is negligible. And since that cost is never negligible, I would say screw them. The only exception is when an sfx is integral to understanding what is going on in the pan ...
Would you read it?
(8 posts, 403 views) Posted: 30d 3h, 37m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Personally, based on the description alone, I wouldn't read it. But if it received good reviews, then I would.

Which brings me to the important point: it doesn't matter what your story idea is. Most people can come up with a dozen good story ideas per wee ...

You're taking this poll too seriously and not seriously enough at the same time. ...
Manga - Anime t.v series

You forgot that it needs to be well made. There are plenty of great manga that got turned into mediocre anime that no one care much about. ...
New Poll - Publication Frequency

I won't read anything until it's finished anymore, so I suppose my choice is the entire series.

As for how I would release if I could... daily. ...
Is manga scanlation coming to an end?
(8 posts, 1524 views) Posted: 152d 10h, 59m ago by cmertb in Manga General
I don't know if the number of releases is dropping, but it certainly isn't growing. Scanlation has been stagnating for years in terms of volume.

Now there are also legit manga sources online, so if you don't count them as scanlation, it is quite poss ...
Why is old manga unpopular?
(32 posts, 3086 views) Posted: 162d 23h, 20m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Raw availability for old series shouldn't be considered in this discussion. From the start, I specifically compared old series that are in fact being scanlated right now. They are there, as easy to find as any other recently scanlated work; nevertheless, few read ...

New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 2338 views) Posted: 181d 19h, 49m ago by cmertb in News
The question is, is only the manga "reportedly good", or the anime as well? If the anime is good, I'll just watch it, and screw the manga. But if the anime has bad reviews, then I will never watch it, and just read the manga. I would never do both, unle ...

Batoto aspires to host self-published manga (and other comics), so you could try there. ...
New Poll - Evil Laughter
(20 posts, 2347 views) Posted: 188d 5h, 19m ago by cmertb in News
Can't stand this "fufufufu" crap in manga. It's simply improper transliteration due to disregarding the fact that there is no "hu" syllable in Japanese, so it's represented with "fu". It should have been "huhu ...

It's interesting how the dominant opinion in the comments is the opposite of the dominant opinion in the poll itself. ...

New Poll - Bad Scanlations

Quote from Gleam
Unless some group barged in which result in two (or more) groups doing releases almost simultaneously (like with popular shounen manga), scanlators rarely do a re-release of chapters that already had been released by someone else. Espe ...
New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 5496 views) Posted: 201d 11h, 38m ago by cmertb in News
This is not a well thought out question.

If a character in a manga holds questionable views or engages in questionable activities, that alone isn't sufficient for a normal reader to get pissed about it. It comes down to mangaka's own attitude toward that. If ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 2930 views) Posted: 214d 22h, 21m ago by cmertb in News
I'd say it's fairly impossible. Groups are always running at near 100% capacity, and when they have spare capacity, they already have something in mind they're going to pick up. An ideal situation would be where there is one common potential ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 2930 views) Posted: 215d 10h, 1m ago by cmertb in News
You're a little confused. Attention to the scanlator's person is not the same as attention to the work. A scanlator (or, more specifically, a translator) who loves a series can just read it without translating it for others. If you translate it, it means you wan ...

If you want to get definitions of Kanji from reading raw manga (digitally) you can download Kanjitomo which lets you hover over Kanji from images and it'll give you the English definitions.

Great app. Recognizes every character I alread ...
New Poll - Dropped Series
(24 posts, 2930 views) Posted: 216d 0h, 23m ago by cmertb in News
Many series get dropped because their readers fail to make their interest known and make the scanlator feel that their work isn't worthwhile. Many series stay dropped because their readers "Do nothing and wait patiently (sadly)" instead of tryin ...
