New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter

You're taking this poll too seriously and not seriously enough at the same time. ...
Manga - Anime t.v series
(3 posts, 262 views) Posted: 65d 8h, 26m ago by cmertb in Manga General
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
(16 posts, 1468 views) Posted: 75d 5h, 22m ago by cmertb in News
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, 1333 views) Posted: 89d 6h, 42m 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, 2852 views) Posted: 99d 19h, 3m 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 ...

Unfortunately, I still scanlate.

Well, I also fansub, but not as much. ...
New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 2040 views) Posted: 118d 15h, 32m 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 ...
I would like to upload my very own manga series please, how can I do that here?

Batoto aspires to host self-published manga (and other comics), so you could try there. ...
New Poll - Evil Laughter
(20 posts, 2053 views) Posted: 125d 1h, 1m 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 ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations

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, 4709 views) Posted: 138d 7h, 21m 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, 2609 views) Posted: 151d 18h, 4m 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, 2609 views) Posted: 152d 5h, 44m 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 ...
English releases by Renta

I think it should count as licensed. Anything officially released in English should be marked "licensed". ...

Quote from Melrakki
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, 2609 views) Posted: 152d 20h, 6m 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 ...

New Poll - New Words/Terms
(16 posts, 1517 views) Posted: 160d 4h, 47m ago by cmertb in News
I will never believe that people bother to research unknown terms every single time or even most of the time. Unless it is crucial to understanding the story, you will just skip over it and not even notice much.

I have to assume that instead of answering the question tha ...

People, why are you talking about DMCA? Don't you read the news? If your early raw provider and probably group member gets arrested, and your whole business model is based on early raw access, what are you going to do? ...

PSA- if your group have members in japan, i recommend you close shop.

it is not worth it.

Hah. With TPP, it might soon be dangerous in many other countries. ...
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them

Quote from amenoumi0340
I see your point. And your suggestion of joining a group as translator sounds… well, interesting : ).

Just in case you decide to try it, this is the subforum where scanlation groups advertise looking for staff: http://www.mangaupdates.com/t ...
