New Release Policy - Completed Novel Chapters Only
(27 posts, 2924 views) Posted: 354d 9h, 29m ago by thevampirate in News
Douluo Dalu is a great example of why it shouldn't be done in parts. Tang Jia San Shao releases his works in chapter parts but they really are just parts of a whole chapter (usually), if released as parts Douluo Dalu 1 & 2 would be about 1500 releases e ...
Virtual Reality | Time Frequency Perception
(3 posts, 766 views) Posted: 406d 2h, 30m ago by thevampirate in The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor
the easiest way to explain the time difference is that when you are in the machine you are essentially in a dream like state and things pass at a faster time in the dream than in real life. that's why in the novel they talk about having to edit the broadcast that the ...

Quote from frozensins
While I'm disappointed I will have to wait a long time for this series to be caught up, I'm also glad that they decided to pick it up. The more they pick up the more will get translated. Rather than rely on fan-made translations, go out a ...
[URGENT] I'm a translator please recruit me
(6 posts, 1130 views) Posted: 448d 18h, 5m ago by thevampirate in Recruitment
There's a little more to it than that. What languages do you speak, what genres do you like to read, will you translate manga only or do you do LN. There's a need for translators but you might want to let people know what you can do first. Good luck biggrin ...
Separating "Rushed Ending/ Axed"
(3 posts, 660 views) Posted: 468d 8h, 55m ago by thevampirate in Suggestions & Bugs
Rushed/axed essentially means canceled and why there is a separate tag for that is beyond me. People haven't optimized the whole tag system yet so there is overlap in taggs sometimes. In general less specific tags are better to group things than very sp ... - Everything You Should Know

Seeing as there are quite a few arguments going on at the same time with a ton of different people, forgive me if this goes on too long. First off, Aggregate sites are generally not favored by the people who actually scanlate manga for several reasons. As previo ...

Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 18237 views) Posted: 497d 19h, 56m ago by thevampirate in News
Japanese Web Novels like Arifureta are the ones i feel most in danger with this change (It just recently got actual volumes/ official illustrations). A number of popular online Wuxia series have gotten their own Chinese web-manhwa and even a few print editions so ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 18237 views) Posted: 497d 21h, 6m ago by thevampirate in News
As a release mod its not a real problem with most releases but sometimes you'll get 50-100 old yaoi doujin releases all at once that you have to leave for admin. At worst sometimes you have to update a post earlier in the day to add a second chapter of a ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(248 posts, 18237 views) Posted: 497d 23h, 33m ago by thevampirate in News
Wouldn't it be better to separate the novels into a genere that way people who don't want novels can just ignore novels? if the top 25 are almost all novels that means they're getting releases and are popular? webtoons and novels have gotten ...

There's another one by the Author of Doluo Dalu that recently got a web comic that is similar to doluo dalu with magic beast mounts. Its a name is a mouthfull but you can see it on the front page with daily updates. ...
Rise Of Novels(why so suddenly ?)!!
(2 posts, 814 views) Posted: 534d 15h, 35m ago by thevampirate in Manga General
There are quite a few reasons why it might be like that. One reason is its much easier to translate a light novel with a machine translator or even with just a dictionary. Secondly it only takes one person to do a LN while manga takes many more people.
I also think t ...
Novels overtaking manga?
(2 posts, 777 views) Posted: 538d 18h, 0m ago by thevampirate in Manga General
While I have started to read almost only novels now I don't really mind, but It seems like novels have finally started to over take manga a bit. Wuxia (Chinese fantasy Light novels) are one of the main contributors to the growth of novels. I'm also seeing ...
New Poll - Anime OP/ED
(29 posts, 6960 views) Posted: 562d 20h, 46m ago by thevampirate in News
I hope people see the results of the April's fools post where only 11% found them funny and over 4 times as many either hated it or found it annoying. maybe from now on they can do jokes that don't involve fake chapters or "I'm Quitting" ...
April Fools' Day Warning
(18 posts, 4833 views) Posted: 573d 0h, 35m ago by thevampirate in News
It's not about deleting the releases its about telling people there's a new chapter when there's really just some bs to waste your time. No one is laughing, its not funny. ...
April Fools' Day Warning

I Hate April fools it gives people an excuse to be a dick. I've already seen one joke release and the day has barely begun. I just hope no one posts it to MU. ...
New Poll - Yaoi vs. Yuri
(58 posts, 6525 views) Posted: 632d 1h, 42m 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, 6525 views) Posted: 632d 1h, 51m 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, 6525 views) Posted: 632d 12h, 57m 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!

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, 2699 views) Posted: 744d 21h, 56m 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, 16865 views) Posted: 765d 12h, 11m 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, 1356 views) Posted: 779d 22h, 35m 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, 4734 views) Posted: 786d 14h, 45m 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? ...

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 ...
