I'd rather see a pretty girl regardless of skin color. bigrazz

White skin has long been the standard of beauty in other cultures as well, even in Europe. It just shows that you don't get out in the sun every day... that is, you're not a stinking peasant. It's ...

The correct answer is B.

Frankly, I fail to get people who would do anything for chump change, and then call those who refuse to do so "foolish", same as you fail to get me. There are certain instincts that people have that make their society function, w ...

Quote from T1
Taking money for something like this in the name of promoting manga to others is wrong. That is not the free scanlation we love and hold dear. Instead it's running a business by using scanlation.

What boggles my mind is how he/she can do it f ...

It's actually a pretty famous sociological experiment in which most choose "no" time and again.

I guess you and the other guy lack a certain sense that most people have because you view this as "shiratori gets $10, or nothing". This ...

This has gone completely off topic.
I'm not a moderator but I suggest you discuss about MangaLator here, and eventually create a new topic for other matters.

Quote from Sayori x3
Frankly, if a contributor translating for the site was doing so in hopes to make some sort of profit, they probably shouldn't even be there. Hence, even if the site were to shut down, they shouldn't be in any way concerned about it.

Well, the owner isn't forcing anybody to translate for him, nor is he going around trying to recruit people to do so. It's technically a "community effort" since there are actually people who volunteer their time to transla ...

Sounds intriguing. Always tempted to cut the slow editors out of scanlation. But the current selection of manga raws on that site is seriously meh.

Also, the site's design leaves much to be desired. ...
Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(18 posts, 859 views) Posted: 62d 20h, 36m ago by cmertb in News
Well, if we suppose that scanlation is killing commercial translation, then it would also explain why domestic manga failed to arise to any meaningful extent. If you can't profit off translation, you would be that much less interested in investing in domestic produc ...

Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(18 posts, 859 views) Posted: 63d 5h, 32m ago by cmertb in News
This is a little underwhelming IMO. There's probably more space devoted to discussing what manga is, how it's categorized, doujins and otaku than to scanlation itself.
