New Poll - Sexism
(92 posts, 1683 views) Posted: 1d 1h, 38m ago by thevampirate in News
The thing i find funny about this poll is the worst sexist things (the rape ones) that are in manga are almost solely in shoujo manga. It is fair to admit in manga for young boys girls often play a smaller point however men in shoujo manga often face the exact same " ...
New Poll - Favorite Narrative
(13 posts, 246 views) Posted: 15d 12h, 3m ago by thevampirate in News
there's plenty of series I read but wouldn't buy. reading online series like stealing the mag Raws instead of volumes, because that's really who is losing the most from scanlation. If you honestly really enjoy a series you should support it but you a ...
New Poll - Paid Manga
(50 posts, 860 views) Posted: 22d 4h, 12m ago by thevampirate in News
I personally wouldn't mind supporting crunchy roll if they improved their quality. they seem more interested in preventing people from getting their scans than providing good service. Is it that hard to make a usable reader? ...
New Poll - Aggregate Sites
(40 posts, 1378 views) Posted: 197d 12h, 23m ago by thevampirate in News
man if this poll was around a few years ago we'd see way different numbers. I used to always download and compile full volumes for easier reading but now I feel caught up on manga and dont need to go through 50 volumes of every good series and i just ...
Group Links Update 2
(45 posts, 4616 views) Posted: 288d 14h, 8m ago by thevampirate in News
Have the scanlators doing series under the DMCA takedown been told which of their series are keeping them from having links? I don't know if there is a way to keep it quiet and protect the scanlators. I know if I was in a group blocked I would at least like an ...
HELP i am looking for this exhibitionism manga!

are you looking for hentai or an actual manga? if it was hentai you just described the plots to like all the pr0nz ...
The Curious Case of Ichigo 100% and Sket Dance
(8 posts, 1434 views) Posted: 572d 9h, 33m ago by thevampirate in Shounen/Seinen
I really dont think either of those manga are spiritual successors to the ones you mentioned since they are all written by different authors. If you said fairy tail was a spiritual successor to rave master i might have bought it. just because 2 manga by 2 completely diff ...

New Poll - Asian Characters
(46 posts, 4948 views) Posted: 714d 6h, 7m ago by thevampirate in News
To be honest it really seems like they kidnapped a whole bunch of Europeans at birth and raised them as Japanese. It really becomes more apparent when you have either all or half 'white' people in the manga and they look exactly like everyone else ...
New Poll - Unwanted Pairing
(38 posts, 4382 views) Posted: 728d 23h, 25m ago by thevampirate in News
I like most Jump romance series however Ichigo 100% really pissed me off. I wish i knew he who he would end up with at the beginning and i would have dropped the series right there. At least the anime has him paired up with the main chick. On the other hand a ser ...

no one is bad qualtiy is fine and the other just doesnt care. one would buy and the other might not. ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9119 views) Posted: 742d 18h, 9m ago by thevampirate in News
I'm sorry but that's mostly BS. First of all we are pirating their intellectual property, no ands, ifs or buts about it. Our ability to get the material out there is hinged upon readers being able to find it, and they can easily shut down public access to the materia ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 9119 views) Posted: 743d 7h, 25m ago by thevampirate in News
the question is about distributing and scanlating not the readers. personally i think it is not immoral or ethically wrong despite being illegal. If the companies that obtained the licences had half a brain they could either shutdown scanlation on a massive scale and force ...
New Poll - Bad Parts of Manga
(38 posts, 3004 views) Posted: 764d 0h, 49m ago by thevampirate in News
what kills me is when manga just goes on and on and on without advancing the plot much. Bleach and even some OP arcs really have trouble with this sometimes. I felt like the entire mermaid arc was 10 times as long as it needed to be. they were all 100x as strong ...
Muda Scantrad Drops Rosario + Vampire II
(93 posts, 4291 views) Posted: 946d 23h, 4m ago by thevampirate in News
preemptively dropping a series because other groups got a C&D? how is that a proper reaction? RHS did a legally sound action by announcing that they were no longer in violation of the digital millennium copyright act essentially covering their asses. whats w ...
DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement - Beelzebub & Bakuman
(180 posts, 12306 views) Posted: 948d 0h, 54m ago by thevampirate in News
no editing manga is like making a parody or editing any other image. On the other hand distributing (or even linking to sites that distribute) copyrighted or licensed material is piracy and can be a felony offence, but just editing it is fine. On the other hand they might be ...
DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement - Beelzebub & Bakuman
(180 posts, 12306 views) Posted: 948d 1h, 17m ago by thevampirate in News
Its not actually news but I think that this is a great news post because it shows other groups how to properly deal with DCMA / C&D notices. They specifically point out that Scanlating is 100% legal however distribution of the scanlations is piracy (ie. illegal). The ...
MangaStream Drops VIZ Media Licensed Series
(170 posts, 14677 views) Posted: 951d 19h, 52m ago by thevampirate in News
What ever happened to the age old system of starting a new group with new names and a new site when someone slaps a C&D on you. the system works in our favor sometimes. play the system, each group is a entirely different entity and every group need ...
Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 4322 views) Posted: 969d 22h, 0m ago by thevampirate in News
actually both Scanlations and Raws hurt the both the Japaneese and American manga industry. most aggregrators and places to find raw manga dont block Japanese IP addresses, so people in japan are reading manga online instead of buying volumes or maga ...
Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 4322 views) Posted: 970d 21h, 10m ago by thevampirate in News
the solution is simple, keep doing the old stuff since stopping it would kill the industry but start with suing the aggregators into oblivion (millions of dollars on top of shutting them down so no one else would think to do that again sends a nice message). Once the aggreg ...
New Poll - IRC Usage
(21 posts, 928 views) Posted: 1009d 5h, 26m ago by thevampirate in News
its good for staff communications but not great for much else. the time of using IRC is long gone. the community used to be secretive and IRC was great for that but that time has passed. websites, forums and terrible online readers now reign supreme (until C& ...
Mangacurse Is Done
(64 posts, 2997 views) Posted: 1009d 8h, 7m ago by thevampirate in News
for every one that goes a new one takes its place. scans aren't really stopping and groups who arent super fast end up dieing out. ...
New Poll - Manga in E-Book Format
(17 posts, 870 views) Posted: 1022d 16h, 45m ago by thevampirate in News
i have an iPad and my dad has a kindle so i have used both and reading with an E-Reader is not nearly as good as paper. IF ebooks were free or at a significantly reduced price i would concider downloading them but i would still rather read it with CDisplay on my la ...
Ala Atra Closes its doors
(32 posts, 1297 views) Posted: 1026d 22h, 19m ago by thevampirate in News
Well Vteck didnt exactly find homes for all our series, but we made sure NA would be taken care of since it was our flagship series. I expect that Simple will take over Iris Zero but dont quote me on that. We had a good run and managed to catch up NA to the maga ...
New Poll - For an Essay
(97 posts, 5223 views) Posted: 1051d 3h, 42m ago by thevampirate in News
this isn't racist, if the poll was are Japanese people inferior that would be racist. Even saying that one group is morally Superior over another isn't racist it just means that they have better morals. that said the US in general have terrible system of mor ...
