New Poll - Skipping to the End
(20 posts, 403 views) Posted: 4d 7h, 19m ago by NightSwan in News
I put seldom, because while I never check the manga's ending by going through the pages,
I do sometimes check online for spoilers.
And then regret doing so. lol. That's how I ruined Aria for myself. x3 ...
New Poll - Two Page Spreads in Scanlations
(18 posts, 634 views) Posted: 19d 10h, 39m ago by NightSwan in News
Of course I prefer a redrawn spread, but if it's not possible, I want to at least see both pages with a gap. As a scanlator, I've come across spreads that I was unable to redraw due to unfortunate manga debinding. Sometimes you're just unsure ...

This has nothing to do with recruitment or with manga, so I'm closing this thread. ...
Short Licensed Manga for Adult Non-Fan
(3 posts, 264 views) Posted: 54d 0h, 40m ago by NightSwan in I'm Looking For...
I went through the licensed titles and here are my best bets:

The shortest are two Asano Inio works.
Solanin - 2 volumes of slice of life type thing.
Would fit a person who likes down to earth sort of fiction.

Nijigahara Holograph - 1 volume, would fit someone who' ...
Can't remember the title but...

New Poll - Blood Boil
(68 posts, 2605 views) Posted: 61d 5h, 28m ago by NightSwan in News
Nothing bothers me, let alone "offends" me when it comes to fiction.
However, I do get uncomfortable when I read depictions of animal abuse. ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 1117 views) Posted: 68d 11h, 2m ago by NightSwan in News
As long as it's consistent with the story and well done, I can see all those changes taking place... besides a sudden gender change and "intellectual faculties". A gender swap would be weird and pointless, unless it's some very specific sup ...
I'm looking for this yaoi manga
(2 posts, 126 views) Posted: 70d 8h, 56m ago by NightSwan in Yaoi/Yuri
It's Creamie by Mentaiko. I think it's a self published story so it doesn't appear on MU.
Love this mangaka. I think it's his wackiest story to date.

Btw, all BL/GL related inquiries are to be made in the Yaoi/Yuri section. ...

English releases by Renta
(11 posts, 695 views) Posted: 74d 5h, 38m ago by NightSwan in Suggestions & Bugs
Actually, I was trying to add Renta as source for manga published in English.
Both Japanese and English Renta are owned by Papyless.

I'm not sure exactly how it works, but since Papyless pays for manga to be translated and typesetted, I think they got the ri ...
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(26 posts, 2740 views) Posted: 76d 3h, 5m 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
(26 posts, 2740 views) Posted: 77d 2h, 48m 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
(16 posts, 819 views) Posted: 82d 12h, 37m 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?
(31 posts, 1957 views) Posted: 86d 10h, 12m 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 ...
As Japanese, curious about people doing scanlation and reading them
(26 posts, 2740 views) Posted: 87d 1h, 46m ago by NightSwan in Manga General
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, 717 views) Posted: 96d 11h, 33m 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
(19 posts, 949 views) Posted: 101d 13h, 1m ago by NightSwan in News
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, 573 views) Posted: 106d 3h, 58m 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' ...

Tried it, didn't like it.
I'm not much of a pop listener in general.
Only the occasional indie-pop, I guess... ...

And you might want to check the series' name, because it leads to a manga about a dog. ...
Lately more Korean writers are getting better?
(11 posts, 797 views) Posted: 130d 2h, 30m 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, 1154 views) Posted: 131d 15h, 48m 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 ...
