As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(22 posts, 1378 views) Posted: 0d 9h, 43m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
Quote from cecropiamoth
This has been my experience. I've also heard it said that seinen manga don't get translated as much as the other kinds because the advanced language (all kanji?) they use is often beyond the translation ability of many scan ...
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(22 posts, 1378 views) Posted: 1d 9h, 27m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
As for the quality of translation, like MaiNina said, it depends on the team.
It also depends on the target demographic. For example, manga that's targeted towards younger audiences and is popular, often attracts people who want to just get it out there and do ...
New Poll - New Words/Terms
(15 posts, 284 views) Posted: 6d 19h, 15m ago by NightSwan in News
I think it's a combination of google and wiki for me, plus random sites.
But it depends on what it is, of course. While I was working on Little Forest, there were tons of new terms and foods, a lot of which didn't appear on wikipedia, so I had to visit various s ...

Why is old manga unpopular?
(17 posts, 686 views) Posted: 10d 16h, 50m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
People tend to like what's new and shiny, especially when there's a visual aspect involved.
I personally love older manga, like [m]Ooshima Yumiko[/m]'s and [m]Yoshida Akimi[/m]'s works (for which I can never find translators), but still fi ...

This is very informative:

And I agree, you could join a scanlation group to help spread the love.
I can never find a translator~

As for you worrying about kids being exposed to adult content, well, it's all clearly ...
New Poll - Manga Influencing Your Decision
(11 posts, 349 views) Posted: 20d 18h, 11m ago by NightSwan in News
That's not a bad question, but I'm not sure how to answer it.

Naturally, I read what interests me.
Call it confirmation bias, but I don't think I've been exposed to views in manga that contradict mine in such a way that would alter my opinion.

I' ...
New Poll - Web Comics

I only follow Their Story and 19 Days,
plus anything else these two put out.

Other than that, I've read a few stand alone stories here and there.
Can't say I've had much luck in finding series that would interest me. ...
Why is Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbou so unpopular?
(5 posts, 411 views) Posted: 30d 10h, 37m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
First of all, when dealing with a specific series, you need to make the thread there.
But I see Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo has a bunch of spin-offs...
If that's the one you're talking about, I'll move it to the appropriate forum.

As for why nobody' ...

Lately more Korean writers are getting better?
(11 posts, 602 views) Posted: 54d 9h, 8m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
Why would all Korean writers suddenly "get better"?
Is there a very specific, localized virus? laugh

But in all seriousness, I have noticed no such thing.
If you enjoy Korean works more than Japanese, well, good for you then.
Needless to say, taste is subjective ...
Smut and the Female Gaze
(12 posts, 895 views) Posted: 55d 22h, 27m ago by NightSwan in Shoujo/Josei
Hey scarletrhodelia!
I really like what you do, even though I've never seen it (still waiting!), so I thought I'd weigh in.

I don't enjoy shoujo/josei smut generally, but maybe my opinion would be of some use anyways. xD
One of the reasons for my lac ...

Request for scanlation groups out there

Dark mage is offering to proofread it, so it's fine.
But it might easier to approach a scanlation group directly.

the mangaka died, and now?
(9 posts, 858 views) Posted: 94d 20h, 46m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
Yeah, it usually means the manga will be left unfinished.

This is not always the case though, such as with Trinity Blood.
If I remember correctly, it had a team of an author and artist, and after the author's death the artist continued the manga. ...
