New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2379 views) Posted: 54d 4h, 57m ago by thevampirate in News
because this poll would lose so much information otherwise. look at yaoi for example ~95% of men don't like yaoi however with gender taken out it would look like almost 40% of people like yaoi.

I really wonder if the close to half of men who said they prefer ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2379 views) Posted: 54d 5h, 6m ago by thevampirate in News
To be fair I should have worded it differently but its a hard way to word anything in this topic without insulting someone else. Its more of the I don't like reading/watching boarderline (or sometimes out right) gay porn because I'm not in the target demog ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 2379 views) Posted: 54d 16h, 12m ago by thevampirate in News
Just because I don't like reading about 2 guys/girls and their love story doesn't mean I'm homophobic just not homosexual. I don't have a problem with a gay character in manga I just don't care for stories about their love life. The ...
Being Licensed!
(1 posts, 345 views) Posted: 165d 11h, 29m ago by thevampirate in Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darou ka
I'm glad it wasn't cruncyroll who got the license. I just hope they release 5-6 volumes a year to keep pace with the Japanese releases. I am frustrated that they limit SAO releases to 1 volume every 4 months and their quality is not higher than their sca ...
New Poll - First Fandom
(27 posts, 1391 views) Posted: 167d 1h, 11m ago by thevampirate in News
first i saw a bunch of anime toonami but that's not what really got me into the fandom; what eventually lead me to manga was the Ranma 1/2 anime. As i only had up to akane loosing her memories I went online to find more and found the Ranma project (wh ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 9990 views) Posted: 187d 15h, 26m 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, 745 views) Posted: 202d 1h, 50m 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, 2500 views) Posted: 208d 18h, 0m 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, 1924 views) Posted: 384d 2h, 11m 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, 5535 views) Posted: 475d 3h, 56m 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 ...

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, 1550 views) Posted: 758d 23h, 20m 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, 5708 views) Posted: 900d 19h, 54m 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, 5097 views) Posted: 915d 13h, 13m 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 ...

New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 10430 views) Posted: 929d 7h, 57m 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, 10430 views) Posted: 929d 21h, 13m 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, 3545 views) Posted: 950d 14h, 36m 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, 5388 views) Posted: 1133d 12h, 52m 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, 14195 views) Posted: 1134d 14h, 41m 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, 14195 views) Posted: 1134d 15h, 5m 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, 17244 views) Posted: 1138d 9h, 40m 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, 5225 views) Posted: 1156d 11h, 48m 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, 5225 views) Posted: 1157d 10h, 58m 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 ...
