As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(26 posts, 3419 views) Posted: 284d 12h, 20m ago by -shiratori- in Manga General
I'm a scanlator; I'm in my mid-20s, but am still in education, so I have enough free time to spend on translating manga.

I think what has drawn me towards manga and scanlation as a non-Japanese person is the Japanese concept of "cute", w ...

I've been reading quite a few LNs recently and I noticed that they always describe beautiful girls with "big eyes" and "snow-white" skin. I know this is a standard of beauty in Asian countries ...
Doing research on scanlation

Quote from mattfabb
For me, it's not that they are horrible, its more that the selection criteria seem to be quite narrow. In comparison, the selection available in scanlation is much broader in terms of generes and target demographics. This is something that ...
Doing research on scanlation

One of the things that I could not really explain in detail in my thesis is the issue of motivation. There is a motivation to read scanlations (maybe because there is no other way to get some manga series) and there is a motivation to scanlate, which is different, b ...
Be able to search using Japanese characters
(5 posts, 672 views) Posted: 371d 15h, 43m ago by -shiratori- in Suggestions & Bugs
If you use the search box on the start page, it only searches for released scanlations, which naturally don't have Japanese titles. You need to click on "Go" and then use the "Title" search. I just recently learned that as well lol. ...

Try Mozuya-san Gyakujousuru. It says it's about a "tsundere syndrome", but it's actually closer to paranoid schizophrenia. ...
Traditional Chinese or Simplified Chinese?
(4 posts, 960 views) Posted: 390d 8h, 32m ago by -shiratori- in Chatter Box
Do you want to translate manhua or manga translated in Chinese?

I do not care about SPEAKING the language because I realized that Chinese characters are not based on phonetics (sounds), so learning how to write does not help you learn how to speak. ...

Do you guys realize that the 2nd post in this thread is me saying that we're allowing it?


I guess they just assumed that you guys would do something about it if the userbase voices their discontent. Silly people. ...

Yeah, I think white skin looks more feminine.

I'm not sure how it is among other people, but there's also a noticeable sex difference in skin tone among the Japanese. The women are a bit lighter-skinned and the men a bit darker. Probably a product of m ...

Quote from mikako17
Odd assumption to make...and also it'd be weird to add since yaoi and yuri aren't demographics. The poll isn't asking for preferred genre, it's preferred demographic and everyone should answer that question unles ...
Mangalator/Raffmanga is down

If it's a DMCA issue, they should try making the site private with access through registration only. Maybe ban Japanese IP addresses too.

Publishers don't care much for English scans hosted online, but the Japanese raws are a thorn in their side. ...

I'm male and mostly read moe-type Seinen.

There should be poll options for yaoi and yuri though, since I'm sure all the fujoshis not voting is distorting the results. ...

It's actually a pretty famous sociological experiment in which most choose "no" time and again.

It's not a principle, but a normal ingrained reaction of a social animal that is the human being, who doesn't like when some people take advantage of others. It's like saying that touching something extremely hot and immediate ...

We care because that's what differentiates human beings from simpler animals. People will try to enforce fair play even if it is disadvantageous to them (depending on the price, of course). There are various sociological experiments tha ...

Nothing wrong with bitching. Scanlators do it when their readers decide to not visit their site and instead go to mangafox and help them earning money on the releases... for FREE! Leechers do it when they think it's been long enough since they ...

I see your point but I see Prozess' point to. If we make a poll, it would create a precedent. We wouldn't be doing an exception, we would be changing the rules of this site. They would no longer bear absolute value. For example, if I wa ...

People who wants donation for running their websites/buying raws/scanlating are trash. Why? Because they make scanlation a business by doing this.
