Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(18 posts, 2096 views) Posted: 388d 13h, 14m ago by eni in News
This is really interesting. I have to read through it later when I have time.
I did my bachelor's thesis on the scanlation (consumer) youth scene (for social work) and now prepare my master's thesis on the community relations in one of the international g ...

The majority of scanlators is really in for 'selfish' reasons, e.g. promoting own reading interests, wanting to read certain manga nobody else would do or simply training in language learning or image editing. This isn't negative. It's the driv ...

That's really unclear from the article.
Could be a official translator who downloaded raws privately as well. Could be a amateur translator who downloaded his material.

Wow, I can't say that I ever run in problems with telling people about my hobby. In fact, they're often interested and want to know more. But I think about how to explain it based on the person in front of me. I also agree with someone before me who pos ...

I agree that horror and guro should be seperated. Horror is part of my favorite literature but guro is just sick and something I greatly avoid. It's like putting smut and hentai into the same pot: completely different audience.

Gore is a different term and can fit bo ...

Example BL/yaoi group: Attractive Fascinante

I think the reason why it doesn't strike me so much with AF is simply that the group itself makes third party distribution obsolete. They have the files openly accessibly with several mirrors, s ...

(17 posts, 3963 views) Posted: 2622d 0h, 31m ago by eni in Yaoi/Yuri
You're a little wrong with this letter. Distribution rules ain't limited to BL groups. Actually, as Terpsichore said, I rarely come across a BL group with these kind of rules.

On the other hand, many shoujo groups are very protective on their releases. One ...

Nice to see the zombie pikachu after a while. And I thought I was hallucinating since I only saw it on series' pages.

On another note, does the mascot have a name?

I'm actually impressed by Vinland Saga.

I don't mind anal in and of itself, I just mind when it's the same thing every single time the clothes come off (or don't come off, whatever). I just... well... want some variety, you know? I think it's one of the main re ...
Anal sex NOT the end-all, be-all?
