How often is this released?
(1 posts, 994 views) Posted: 482d 9h, 30m ago by Sayori x3 in World's End Harem
It's a bi-weekly series. You'll see it scanlated first on r/manga or our IRC, and then Batoto and our site.

I generally try to get it released same-day as the raws become available in Japan. ...
Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 2415 views) Posted: 515d 18h, 21m ago by Sayori x3 in Manga General
It just happened. One day I decided to just start translating.

No, but seriously. I've been translating for years now. I don't even really read manga anymore, ironically. Translating has gotten me to stop reading manga.

Why do I do it? I don't know. It' ...
Is manga scanlation coming to an end?

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 scan ...

So, over the past week, I've been working day and night coding a little pet project to help improve manga reading quality of life.

Essentially, CakeTracker is an auto-synchronizing GreaseMonkey/TamperMonkey script that syncs your progress on Batoto wit ...

You could send them to my raw provider/scanner, since he buys a ton of raws anyway biggrin

I've linked him to this post; he'll drop by some time. ...

Lhianna, the creation of this thread is bringing unnecessary attention to this series, which is probably not what you want to do. You wouldn't want a troll to scanlate this series on purpose just to piss you off, right?

The key to making sure you maximize the prob ...

So, how much did he pay you, so that you're running around here advertising it?

If he has no goals, like you claim, there would be no need for advertisement.
It's obvious as hell that the site is sub-par for scanlation, so promoting it d ...

I suppose this is the main problem. The admin does whatever he wants and tlers sign up as peons to do the work for him so he can get his ad revenue or whatnot.

For this to work, it needs to be a community thing.

Besides, if it ever gets even clos ...

Allowing Crunchyroll to make releases on MU was a conscious effort to try and convince readers to go to their site to read official releases instead of unofficial ones. But MU isn't ruling out unofficial releases, though. ...

Wait, so MangaLator is listed as a "Group" on Mangaupdates? Because if it is not, then I don't see how we can filter it out. But I don't personally feel it should be allowed, since it's far from a "Group" ph ...

So...I just read the thread and I can't stop laughing. laugh

Yes, all scanlation is illegal. We use the grayzon to define that we are not interested in making money for doing this but are sharing the love of this title to others by scanlating manga. Ofcou ...

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.

Well, as stated within the three primary rea ...

It's very true. XD And in no way am I saying what I'm doing is not illegal. =)

But I must ask. Is MangaLator going to have some respect for legally licensed releases and remove all titles if released by English publishers? I haven' ...

No need for lengthy legality discussions. It's illegal plain and simple unless you got permission. bigrazz

Hence why it's silly to say, "And technically, no it is not allowed. Taking private raws without explicit permission is considered stealing."


I was speaking in the point of view of what is and isn't acceptable for a MangaUpdat ...

First off, it's not my site. I am not affiliated with it MangaLator any way. Nor is anybody else there.

Batoto is a release host. MangaLator is a raw host that allows freelance translators to translate directly on the pages. It's somewhat different. There' ...

There is a new kind of "scanlation" in town, and it comes in the form of a midway between releasing "pure translation scripts" and releasing "actual scanlation releases."
