This is probably a collective act by publishers who wish to prevent manga distribution at the "source", and they believe that MangaUpdates is one of the biggest locations performing said distribution.

They (the publishers) probably allude MU to websites lik ...

How much does manga normally cost in your country?
(62 posts, 5066 views) Posted: 696d 13h, 40m ago by Sayori x3 in Manga General
I live in Canada. Volumes range from $9-15, plus tax (8~13% tax).

However, the price isn't that much of a concern. It's mainly the selection. There's practically no manga series available apart from the really popular ones. Canadian resellers mo ...

What happened to scanlation groups?
(2 posts, 527 views) Posted: 705d 23h, 16m ago by Sayori x3 in Manga General
Last two years ago, it was all the hype for groups to be spontaneously created consequently have many series picked up.

However, now that basically all the good/cliche series have been picked up, there's nothing else good left for new groups to pick up, s ...

Probably not going to be as in depth as the other groups posting on this forum, since I realize that not many people look here.

Scanlators stupidity.
(18 posts, 1677 views) Posted: 712d 3h, 58m ago by Sayori x3 in Manga General
It's because most people who start up groups become greedy and attempt to claim series as soon as they can, before others can pick them up. I can vie for this since I myself did it when I started off, but I don't bother doing it anymore.

This thread was originally about JManga, which is technically a new and small company.

You seem heavily focused on arguing that companies like VIZ can do well. For one thing, I never said they couldn't. Second, they focus heavily on the big name titles anyw ...
How does big online manga reading sites manage to keep popular manga?

They essentially ignore C&D's and just hope they never get sued.

And the second issue that makes it harder to sue is the fact that most of their servers are hosted in other countries and locations that give publisher companies little to no jurisdiction.

It's only five chapters to read and already seems dead in scanlation. It's your call.

I'd probably say skip it for now until somebody continues it. If it's not continued after a long time, you can figure that it's probably not that great of a m ...

Then you're basically complaining about a self-made catch-22. If "low-" or "mid-" tier mangas have fewer readers, its only natural that you won't expand (or worse, shrink) the audience if you don' ...

Yes, as far as I know even fansubbers often get closed captions with their raws these days. If you have cc's, translation of anime certainly becomes easier than manga.

But manga typesetting is still somewhat harder per line than its anime counterpart -- subtitle timing. Ditto for cleaning versus encoding. Now consider this in terms of revenue per staff hour spent. Given how many people will look at an anime epis ...

But are redraws really necessary? Why don't they just give them the pages without the text over it?


That's simply because the minimal standard readers expect from translated manga is for it to have all the text replaced. No ...
