Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(47 posts, 6619 views) Posted: 452d 9h, 35m ago by BedrosBoost in Suggestions & Bugs
Thanks for actually quoting something I said which holds me as a hypocrite. As I've said, many people take it for granted that manga is being scanlated for free, which is what annoys me to no end. These are the people who absolutely have no interest in sup ...
Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(47 posts, 6619 views) Posted: 454d 0h, 46m ago by BedrosBoost in Suggestions & Bugs
This is what I hate about a large part of the manga community - Many of you guys take it for granted that manga has always been free. Let me tell you - it's not supposed to be free. By reading all the free scans online and not actually buying any manga, you' ...

New Poll - Scanlation Quality
(21 posts, 2010 views) Posted: 642d 20h, 40m ago by BedrosBoost in News
Ah my bad, I completely forgot about the literary side. Though in that respect, I would say that it has improved a little. There are some speed scans that dish out whatever they feel they want the characters to say, but the majority of the groups have good grammar ...
New Poll - Scanlation Quality
(21 posts, 2010 views) Posted: 642d 23h, 17m ago by BedrosBoost in News
Compared to almost a decade ago, quality has been steadily improving. Anyone who votes otherwise must only have started reading recently (~3 years). Also note, some of the old 'scanlations' are just the official scanlations uploaded online.

Scans t ...
New Poll - Death of the MC

Any link to the study? Although it's hard to believe that people like to jump to the end to find out what happens before starting, I've seen quite a few people admit it as well. Another reason is that they want to see whether the ending is good or not. If the ...

Magico Ending around chapter 67

Quote from JakeeDylan
Where did you happen to receive this report?
Also, if it were to end any time soon, that would be normal. Half the series labeled "Rushed/Axed" on these sites are biased opinions, thus, usually to sooth their anger, they label it tha ...

Actually I find it hard to believe that truly bad manga can keep getting serialized. They could just be manga that isn't to our taste. And as you said, raws are a problem.
Scanlators can't just keep buying a magazine every issue just to scanlate one or tw ...

Yeah, you're right. They aren't scanning all of them but at least they're scanning a good number compared to the past. It just made me sad when you said that we're missing good series. sad ...
New Poll - Manga Quality Comparison
(28 posts, 1930 views) Posted: 1174d 19h, 58m ago by BedrosBoost in News
For those who say that manga in the past is better, that's mainly because the bad ones are never well known and the groups in the past would only scanlate the good ones. Take a look at all the groups these days, they're scanning everything, so now ...

The raws these days are pretty good, so I thing that more proofreaders are needed for good quality text.

Unless you're referring to the manga plot quality, then I thing that they're getting better. There's been an increase in better series in the re ...
