New Poll - Scanlate or Not?
(9 posts, 543 views) Posted: 45d 2h, 12m ago by kihi in News
I have suggestion for the next poll:

Quality of scanlation (for readers), how bad is it to make you stop reading.

Since anyone can scanlate as long as you have the time and know the language (or someone who does) there are increase in number of groups/one-ma ...
New Poll - Paying Translators

Would it be scanlation anymore though?
That already cross the grey area since in this case profit is involved.

Renta "licensed"
(12 posts, 1227 views) Posted: 532d 11h, 5m ago by kihi in Suggestions & Bugs
Why don't just list the actual publisher like Arleea said the publisher is "future comic" and just put the link to Renta on the description like what the admin did here?

That would make a lot more sense and make good to Renta too to finally recognize ...
Renta "licensed"
(12 posts, 1227 views) Posted: 532d 13h, 47m ago by kihi in Suggestions & Bugs
Regarding issue (1) and (3), For me personally the license itself was not an issue but rather where it was credited to the wrong publisher or in Renta case a non-publisher. I still believe that Renta is only a platform that sells manga.

A good argument regarding Renta ...
Hisoka Spinoff? What on earth is this?
(4 posts, 1485 views) Posted: 532d 18h, 13m ago by kihi in Hunter x Hunter
Quote from alexonxanax
That clears up a lot. Hisoka having a past itself seemed so uncharacteristic of him, considering how Togashi goes out of his way to let us know how little it means to him. I had always assumed we'll never know. But it would be interes ...
Renta "licensed"

Quote from rangda2
Thank you for pointing this detail out.
The "web version" seems to me quite ok to use in this case.

I guess the best way to avoid confusion/misconception is by labeling "web ver. chapters" because the work like the exam ...
Renta "licensed"
(12 posts, 1227 views) Posted: 533d 1h, 58m ago by kihi in Suggestions & Bugs
Wrong info whenever a work listed as licensed by Renta.

For example

It says that Renta(Digital). Renta did not licensed the digital ver. because this is ...
Yo Manga vs. Hey Manga
(63 posts, 20371 views) Posted: 548d 16h, 39m ago by kihi in News
re-hosting content is one thing, re-hosting content with removed credit it totally another ball game. Especially true when the same website also do scanlating.

Like MF and other aggregator they just host the original content.

Basically, re-hosting by deliberately remov ...
New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 1717 views) Posted: 660d 2h, 51m ago by kihi in News
One spin off the the max for me. Nowadays there are way too many spin off it started grating on nerve *cough Singeki no Kyojin *cough. Sometimes I feel like the author/publisher not ready to let go of the series while all of our fans are so over it.

Also, the quality ...

Probably because they aren't allowed to say that they are closed down because of a DMCA, stated in the DMCA

This is kinda funny if it's the case.

Quote from Sayori x3
But yes, now that MangaUpdates is building a reputation for being easily targeted by publishers, others will likely join suit. We will have to see what happens, both here, and at other websites.

Getting manga raws from ebooks
(22 posts, 3674 views) Posted: 1298d 17h, 45m ago by kihi in Manga General
Quote from Arleea
Here's an example of another reason why I love ebooks. Most of the newer titles are scanned in full images unlike when printing in book format you lose some of the art because of binding or resizing to fit the format.
