Quote from bilnity
Sorry for being a noob. By this logic, so if I read my friend's manga is that considered as violation as well?

Computer age is not the same. You effectively create a new copy of the image.

That's right. Let's unplug from the internet or something, idk.

Not expert here. Its because you lack the basic concept. Its not the ISP which wiretap you,
They must keep record of traffic and ip for safety issues. It's the Govt/law enforcer who look into it. ISP don't keep the contents. The contents are reviewed by ...

Usually, it's the copyright holders who report to police.

The police will collect the evidence and decide when to take action. The ISPs do the last part of the job, which is revealing users' info on police request. ISPs are neutral but the local law can require ...

I guess you are living in a place with no copyright concern. Otherwise, Please read the news. You can always tell others to ignore the red light but its their right to decide to obey or not.

Quote from Lorska
No that's because the ratings are biased. You will give something you just read a perfect rating, thinking this is truly the best of the best, but realize later that it is not that great or you are pissed and just rate it the lowest possible score. Th ...

Is is better to split the rating into a more detailed view?
I've thought about rating for arts and rating for story which can then sum up as the overall rating.

And adding an analysis to split the overall ratings into two groups: before and after completing the series. ...

From time to time, I see people saying most manga are already scanlated because they have read (downloaded) a lot. ...

Thanks,

I noted the genre/categories pages but they do not compared each categories with Korean and Chinese manga under the same category.

It seems that you don't understand yet. Look: It's true that Yotsuba to! may be put into a shoujo magazine without any problem -and it could even be successful- but if a manga is seinen or not it's not decided by us, but b ...

It depends on what purpose that MU set up the label.
Is it used to let people know what kind of audience the manga is targeted to Or just stick to the so called definition?
Not only salarymen have pressures after all. Yotsubato is all-age, you can safely label it from sho ...
Most Depressing Manga
