Novels overtaking manga?
(2 posts, 305 views) Posted: 24d 15h, 45m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Indeed. I'm often tempted to go into LN translations just so I wouldn't have to depend on others.

Well, I think there has been a slight decrease in overall scanlation as well, if you disregard the new style legit scanlations that are now reported on MU. ...
New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(29 posts, 2010 views) Posted: 48d 6h, 39m ago by cmertb in News
Since, as is customary with these polls, there is no correctly nuanced reply option I need, I voted for "I don't watch anime". ...

Quote from thevampirate
I hope people see the results of the April's fools post where only 11% found them funny and over 4 times as many either hated it or found it annoying. maybe from now on they can do jokes that don't involve fake chapters or ...

What exactly is the point of this exercise? Are you going to then enter those manga in the MU database? ...
Did mangaupdates lower the bar for "echii" this Valentines Day?
(7 posts, 414 views) Posted: 98d 0h, 8m ago by cmertb in Manga General
The term is "ecchi", not "echii". How do you introduce spelling errors while copying & pasting?

Anyway, the manga isn't ecchi anymore. ...
Looking for Battle Through the Heaven translator

What's the point of putting their name on the credit page if they're not the ones who did the work? Do you really think that would make anyone happy? ...

The Rise of Novels
(23 posts, 1968 views) Posted: 111d 14h, 38m ago by cmertb in Manga General
I didn't realize novels were getting so popular in relation to manga, but now that you mention it, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Many manga translators I know are moving into novels. I would guess the reason is that the manga ecosystem is only gett ...
Why do people persist reading series that they hate?
(17 posts, 947 views) Posted: 143d 1h, 45m ago by cmertb in Manga General
I suspect that in most cases they like the series they read. They just say they don't like them to appear cool, even if only in their own eyes. ...
Translator for Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
(6 posts, 326 views) Posted: 147d 12h, 22m ago by cmertb in Recruitment
There are many fatal mistakes that started with the words "it seems". Why don't you ask next time? That's what I always do. I'm also puzzled as to why you didn't even consider offering your help to the group before attemptin ...
How to ask for help for translations?
(9 posts, 389 views) Posted: 180d 5h, 4m ago by cmertb in Manga General
What exactly are "specific genre forums"? Manga forums exist for readers of manga to talk about manga, not for scanlators to talk about scanlation.

Scanlation is done by scanlator groups, i.e. these: http://www.mangaupdates.com/groups.html

How to space romaji
(4 posts, 283 views) Posted: 186d 14h, 5m ago by cmertb in Manga General
These are my personal preferences:

"ga" is the same particle as any other, so it gets the same treatment. Not sure what you mean by "te" -- if it's the -te form of a verb then it's a part of the preceding word.

As for elongated ...
How to space romaji
(4 posts, 283 views) Posted: 186d 16h, 21m ago by cmertb in Manga General
There aren't any rules that anyone enforces, but English speakers typically prefer spacing and capitalization that's closer to English standards, i.e. spaces around all particles and all words in title capitalized except particles. Don't know what yo ...

That's awfully pretentious of you.

If one day I wake up and find the internet where you can state an opinion clearly and openly without apologizing 10 thousand times for it in advance, and there's no teenager to show up and call yo ...
How to ask for help for translations?
(9 posts, 389 views) Posted: 187d 15h, 46m ago by cmertb in Manga General
It's pointless to just ask. If a scanlator wants to pick up a new project, they already know what's interesting out there and what they want to pick up. If they don't have the resources for a new project, then no matter how much you ask, they' ...
New Poll - Dystopia vs. Utopia
(36 posts, 2043 views) Posted: 188d 12h, 2m ago by cmertb in News
Dystopia stories are great when you're gripped by teenage angst and want to think that life sucks and everyone around you is a bastard. You grow out of it eventually. Unfortunately, telling a gripping story based in a utopian society takes much talent, so suc ...

(3 posts, 338 views) Posted: 263d 2h, 43m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Japan was, is, and will remain the undisputed champion in manga for the simple reason that "manga" is a Japanese term. Other countries don't make manga. ...

What exactly are you asking?

The series already exist in the database, and you just need to add the correct mangaka name to them?

Manga/fun stuff in 日本語 (Japanese) - suggestions?
(6 posts, 404 views) Posted: 335d 2h, 58m 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

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 ...
