|Changing scanlation quality
(6 posts, 383 views) Posted: 385d 22h, 58m ago by himexcherry in Manga General
Quote from tactics
Quality scans make the enjoyment of reading manga even better because you can really appreciate the art work and the feel the manga is trying to give, especially if there's a good typesetter that try their best to follow a similar font tha ...
|Changing scanlation quality
(6 posts, 383 views) Posted: 387d 21h, 56m ago by himexcherry in Manga General
Just out of curiosity, does anyone else stop reading a series online or digitally if the scanlation quality goes from what i guess can be considered standard (cropped, leveled, single spread pages) to less than average quality (all double page, no leveling and only bas ...

|New Poll - Completed Series
(46 posts, 2809 views) Posted: 395d 22h, 58m ago by himexcherry in News
I don't usually read oneshots or shorter series, so most of the series that I have read have been 2+ volumes, but i can estimate that I have definitely read somewhere between100-300 complete series. I can confidently say that if we were talking about series ...
|Are most Manga nowadays...
(1 posts, 328 views) Posted: 411d 22h, 32m ago by himexcherry in Manga General
From what I have heard, a lot of mangaka tend to use a combination of both nowadays for many reasons, especially if the manga uses the same backgrounds and such repeatedly, Although it varies on each of their preferences. ...
|Dengeki Daisy to End in October
(9 posts, 2517 views) Posted: 458d 22h, 26m ago by himexcherry in Dengeki Daisy
This is both happy and sad.
Happy because it is about time for the series to end...
but sad because its another great series ending at the same time. All the good shoujo series have ended or just about to and I haven't found anything new that is as good as them ...

These ones are all completed, but other than that, they are all longish (5+ volumes) and a variety of genres

|New Poll - Exercise
(30 posts, 2390 views) Posted: 493d 22h, 26m ago by himexcherry in News
I exercise almost everyday, the only exception being when I am sick. I go walking every day (weather permitting of course, I don't like the rain) and do many core and balance exercises at home, no need for a gym, save my time and money on that one XD ...

Miseinen dakedo Kodomo ja Nai-this one is a new series, so there are only a few chapters, but it fits the secret marriage theme
|What's your opinion of Harlequin comics?
(11 posts, 2633 views) Posted: 567d 0h, 52m ago by himexcherry in Shoujo/Josei
I read them and honestly, if you ever expect for there to be a decent and 'original' plot in a harlequin story, then you are barking up the wrong tree.
In fact I think they are a great little read, they are only usually only 129pgs long, so they are a quick read ...

|New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 5252 views) Posted: 599d 22h, 4m ago by himexcherry in News
I prefer accuracy! If...it is done right!!
I find that when reading manga, it makes so much more interesting if the translation does retain some of it's original characteristics. For example Pin to Kona, which for those who don't know, is largely based on Ka ...
|New Poll - Living in Japan
(48 posts, 4530 views) Posted: 620d 20h, 20m ago by himexcherry in News
In an ideal world definitely, yes!
In reality, the best for me would be to travel there.
I think rather than living there I just have an infatuation with the culture and history of that part of the world in general, it's one of those few places in the world that is strongly influ ...

Quote from Chaoskitty
... You've never scanlated have you.
Lol totally agree with that one. I don't think all groups are like this though. Especially for the bigger ones with many staff, a lot of the time you will find that people just go *poof*. This is because ...

|A manga that strays from the cliche character.

Kuragehime-this one is definitely different. I mean, the characters are shy because they are otakus, but they are definitely not cliche I don't think.

(7 posts, 669 views) Posted: 638d 20h, 37m ago by himexcherry in Recruitment
I suggest sending a message to Lila Wolves scans before hand seeing as they still have this series as active on their website. They might be interested in doing a joint as it appears the other group they previously did a joint on has 360 material listed as 'drop ...
|how is the romance?
(9 posts, 2500 views) Posted: 640d 23h, 32m ago by himexcherry in Kamisama Hajimemashita
I like the progression. I mean, it can get frustrating because we are 90 chapters in and still waiting for that moment, but it is 100 times better than 90% of other series where the leads meet and are already dating by the end of the first two chapter ...
|News: JManga Closes Adruptly
(55 posts, 5914 views) Posted: 643d 22h, 37m ago by himexcherry in Manga General
I think this is exactly what I said in regard to the current poll question about paying for manga on a digital device.
Basically, Jmanga, last time I viewed it, has a somewhat limited library. Looking at it now, it apparently only has 312 series? I could find a broader range in ...
