New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 13346 views) Posted: 1535d 12h, 10m ago by pknoctis in News
It's wrong if it's possible and likely to be licensed in english

It's not wrong if you know it's never going to be licensed

This is of course assuming that publishers/authors merely want wide circulation of their books + desire profit in cases pos ...

There is no point in staying on topic, because the topic's prompt is a joke

1) Manga scanlation is not ethical
2) Everyone in this business is a thief, there is no code of honor
3) Shut the fuck up about something that is nonexistent ...

New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 4878 views) Posted: 1569d 17h, 46m ago by pknoctis in News
The only deal breaker for me is characterization. It's impossible to be completely original, what a story needs is characters (this includes backstories) that really pull you in

This is why I hate shoujo, not because it's "romance" but because ...

His grammar is a little awkward sometimes but his translation is spot on. This is coming from a Korean translator.

One - why do people keep bitching about his grammar? It's not bad at all. I've seen worse from more "reputable" groups and no one said a thing.

Two - another thing I don't get is, why is it a bad thing to be scanlating for the money? I ...

I do not agree with what Youni (Mangapirate admin) is doing right now, but there is one thing I do appreciate about what he is doing.

Sure there's an "ethic" in the scanlation world, which is namely - if another group's working on it, you don' ...

Worst SHOUNEN Cliche
(598 posts, 141305 views) Posted: 1715d 7h, 35m ago by pknoctis in Shounen/Seinen
Definitely been posted earlier but the worst cliches IMO:

1. all the strongest fighters are around the MC's age (which, seeing as it's shounen, is usually 14-15)
2. MC can't kill because it's wrong
3. constantly better fighters popping up (which m ...
