|what ia anime/manga to you?
(4 posts, 722 views) Posted: 1258d 15h, 57m ago by BewareOfArtists in Manga General
I view anime and manga in somewhat the same way I view any other media I enjoy:
- a hobby, because I enjoy the media I chose
- an escape from reality like when I'm ill or having a hard time I can just jump into a manga and deal with stuff once I've g ...

|Quality vs. Speed (mangapirate case)
(301 posts, 46333 views) Posted: 1266d 16h, 40m ago by BewareOfArtists in Manga General
I'm for quality. I would rather wait a few days and have cleaner editing and smoother translations than read a rush job.Poor translations and slopping editing takes me out of the manga, which makes me sad because of the work put into it.I don't scantil ...
