Should we have a scanlation culture of translators being paid for their work?
No, it's volunteer work! Labor of love or not at all
Yes, it's reasonable to pay them for their hard work

New Poll - Goals
(16 posts, 480 views) Posted: 35d 10h, 24m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I'm a phd student so definitely knowledge is my life's goal. The only other thing I want to do besides biological research is open an animal shelter, which I guess could count as spirituality? ...
New Poll - Long Series
(16 posts, 994 views) Posted: 97d 7h, 13m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I wouldn't say there's a definite limit, as I've read amazing longer series and terrible shorter ones. What matters is the story telling. As long as the story is well told then the length doesn't matter.

For example, Banana Fish is amazing and o ...
New Poll - Good, bad, and the Ugly
(40 posts, 2346 views) Posted: 105d 15h, 17m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
With regards to the previous poll, I voted 'a lack of money'. I'm 28, but a full time student. When I was working I had the money to buy merchandise, and I did, but then I suffered more from a lack of space since Japanese apartments are tiny. Also ...
New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
(24 posts, 2019 views) Posted: 168d 11h, 6m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
My first anime was the original johto league Pokemon series when I was about 10. I was also obsessed with the game around the same time, much like everyone else I guess. It's hard to say which was first.

I didn't watch any anime again until my frien ...
Physic/ ESP manga.
(16 posts, 7553 views) Posted: 186d 15h, 34m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in I'm Looking For...
I second E's and I own the whole series in Japanese and it's really good. I am working (very very slowly) on translating it for anyone interested. Raw scans are available online, but I have no skill with photoshop and no time so can't make the sca ...
New Poll - Lunar New Year
(15 posts, 1685 views) Posted: 236d 13h, 53m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I live in Japan and it's basically ignored here for the most part. The 1st January is a much bigger deal, people go the the shrine either around midnight or during the 1st week of the year, and everyone generally returns to their hometowns for family meals. Th ...
New Poll - Contacting the Creator
(16 posts, 1790 views) Posted: 538d 11h, 8m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
In answer to your question about re-reading, my favourite series is Banana Fish. I've read it easily 20-30 times if you count both English and Japanese together. It's 19 volumes long, but so good. I notice new things every time I read it. I admit that changin ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 4100 views) Posted: 574d 10h, 26m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I don't know how old you would consider an old person to be, but I'm still a student at 27 so maybe there aren't as many young uns as you'd think. Some of us just refuse to stop learning, lol.

For this week's poll I would never drop a ...
New Poll - Your Occupation
(35 posts, 4397 views) Posted: 581d 11h, 58m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I'm a full time post grad student and part time private English teacher. ...
E's Translation available.

UPDATE: Scanlator now found. Thank you for the interest. ...
E's Translation available.
(2 posts, 561 views) Posted: 636d 15h, 12m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Recruitment
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I don't know where else to put it.

I started to read E's in English ages ago, but the English publisher went bust and then the scanlator stopped about 5 years ago, so I just bought it and read it in Japanese. Re ...
New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
(21 posts, 2568 views) Posted: 763d 12h, 16m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
The few English volumes I own I got from Amazon mostly, a couple from major bookstores.. I have far more Japanese manga simply because it's so cheap here and is a good way to study without actually studying. Those I mostly got from second hand sho ...
New Poll - Switching Japanese Language
(31 posts, 4037 views) Posted: 861d 8h, 16m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I live in Japan and still wouldn't give up English as my native language even if you paid me.

Firstly, English is far more useful in international situations (which makes it essential to my job as a scientist), Secondly, fluency in Japanese isn't impossible. It ma ...
New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 2920 views) Posted: 912d 12h, 5m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Yes, that is definitely true! Every time I learn something new about Japanese I realise how far I am from achieving fluency. Being surrounded by native speakers is both a blessing and a curse, as I get to practice my Japanese, but I'm also being reminded of ...
New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 2920 views) Posted: 916d 7h, 25m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I'm a native English speaker who's only second language is Japanese, and I live in Japan, so maybe I can shed some light on this. I think the whole accent thing isn't about not being able to pronounce Japanese words. As you pointed out, the limit ...
New Poll - Japanese Fluency
(25 posts, 2920 views) Posted: 916d 7h, 33m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
5 years of living in Japan and I still feel like a complete beginner! Though since I came here with nothing and now I can survive daily life I guess I know more than I think I do. It's hard to judge when everyone around you is a native speaker, and don't eve ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 25627 views) Posted: 1027d 22h, 2m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Sorry. Forgot it was also a thread. I just replied to a comment. eek I'm also bad at timing things.. Ignore me! ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 25627 views) Posted: 1028d 7h, 34m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Since this is getting out of hand and I don't want to devote any more energy to an Internet debate, let's just agree to disagree.

P.S. Of course I've finished manga, I just don't keep them in my completed list. ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 25627 views) Posted: 1034d 9h, 5m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Sorry, I'm a busy person so didn't follow the thread, but it's rude not to at least reply.

Firstly, obviously I'm not ok with rape, murder, terrorism etc. Suggesting that I would be simply because I am more disgusted by child porn is a ridiculous a ...
New Poll - Loli/Shota
(204 posts, 25627 views) Posted: 1042d 17h, 14m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I vote yes/yes.

I find the whole idea disturbing. I live in Japan and frankly there is a worrying amount of sexuality attached to young children. Grown women dress and act like young girl to attract men because cute=desirable. I know that I have no right to judge conse ...
New Poll - Manga Fan
(39 posts, 4392 views) Posted: 1134d 10h, 14m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
Amateur, not counting DJs, one shots and series I've barely touched. I've been reading manga for around 12 years, but didn't keep track for the first 5, and my reading slowed considerably when I started university. Now I'm doing my pos ...
New Poll - City Size
(39 posts, 3390 views) Posted: 1197d 13h, 3m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
I live in Kyoto, which has over 1million residents, so big city it is, but my hometown is a small city of 300,000. I also spent 3 years living in a medium sized city, and 3 years living in a town of 40,000. I wonder if I can manage to live in a metropolis and in a rural area as we ...
Fifa World Cup 2014
(85 posts, 6783 views) Posted: 1197d 13h, 21m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
Nation pride tells me to choose England, but honestly we haven't a chance. I'm putting money on either Brazil, Argentina or the Netherlands to win it.

The Netherlands have a ridiculously strong team this year, and have been playing much better than any ...
Is this Cool?: Sword Balancing on Shoulder
(12 posts, 780 views) Posted: 1215d 17h, 59m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in Chatter Box
I can't picture it working either. Even with the best balance in the world, your movements would be highly restricted and you'd end up knocking into everything. I would really be intimidated by an opponent balancing a sword on their shoulder, just confuse ...
New Poll - Can't Sleep
(23 posts, 2124 views) Posted: 1237d 6h, 1m ago by CuthienSilmeriel in News
My cat doesn't understand the concept of a full night's sleep. ...
