New Poll - Aggregate Sites
(40 posts, 1275 views) Posted: 143d 1h, 10m 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, 4082 views) Posted: 234d 2h, 55m 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, 1384 views) Posted: 517d 22h, 19m 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, 4705 views) Posted: 659d 18h, 53m 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, 4199 views) Posted: 674d 12h, 12m 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, 8723 views) Posted: 688d 6h, 56m 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, 8723 views) Posted: 688d 20h, 12m 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, 2850 views) Posted: 709d 13h, 35m 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, 3932 views) Posted: 892d 11h, 51m 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, 11637 views) Posted: 893d 13h, 40m 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, 11637 views) Posted: 893d 14h, 4m 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, 13860 views) Posted: 897d 8h, 39m 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, 4024 views) Posted: 915d 10h, 47m 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, 4024 views) Posted: 916d 9h, 57m 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, 879 views) Posted: 954d 18h, 13m 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& ...

New Poll - Manga in E-Book Format
(17 posts, 801 views) Posted: 968d 5h, 32m 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, 1216 views) Posted: 972d 11h, 6m 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, 4853 views) Posted: 996d 16h, 29m 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 ...
New Poll - Animals in Manga
(13 posts, 462 views) Posted: 1017d 3h, 12m ago by thevampirate in News
I find that the 18+ warnings on nonhentai manga to be retarded. If it contains violence or ecchi it doesn't deserve an 18+ rating, that same stuff would be found in most PG-13 movies in the us. i could see a 16+ or 'Older Teen (OT)' rating, just not ...
