New Poll - Paying Translators
(37 posts, 1689 views) Posted: 78d 17h, 29m ago by Gradonil_Ral in News
While I understand paying a top-notch translator for a project you really wanna do, but are unable to find anybody decent to translate for free, I'm against the idea that all translations should be paid for.

However, I wouldn't mind if a group took on a spon ...
When did you join MangaUpdates? What's your first completed Manga according to your list?

I joined MU in Feb 2008. Took me almost exactly 12 months from when I started reading manga before I registered here. It's hard to tell what my first completed manga according to my list is, because it took me months before I decided to transfer my mang ...

I'm not sure about the 5 book limit on, but if you want a place where you can buy original manga (be it digital or printed versions), there is more places out there. For example - not sure about being able to read on "kindle" th ...

One Piece Creator Eiichiro Oda: Story Is About 65% Finished
(3 posts, 1470 views) Posted: 510d 18h, 14m ago by Gradonil_Ral in One Piece
Hmmm... so it took him 15 years to reach 60% mark, but after 4 more years, it's only 65% done? That's weird.

In any case, there's probably about 10 more years of One Piece left.
Then again, 10-15yrs was my prediction back in 2007-8, so who k ...

Wow. Mangaupdates got an update, it must be a blue moon or something xP
It's a shame I recently started reading WNs/LNs, so the update doesn't affect me as much, but still - thank you.

What the heck is with the grammer of English translated LNs?
(6 posts, 864 views) Posted: 572d 17h, 43m ago by Gradonil_Ral in Manga General
There's many reasons as to why most of LNs and WNs is riddled with grammar mistakes (and sometimes typos). I don't really feel like writing a lengthy post, so I'll just summarize some of the most important (IMO) points:

1. Translators are often ...

New Poll - Importance of Manga
(21 posts, 2593 views) Posted: 647d 14h, 22m ago by Gradonil_Ral in News
Even though I visit MU daily, probably even multiple times a day, there's very few series I follow regularly. If I'm not currently immersed in a particular book or (since recently) a light/web novel, I'll probably catch up on the backlog of the releases ... Digital Manga converting to .png/.jpeg

I'm not sure if that's gonna do the trick, but you can try using winrar or 7-zip to extract the files. You might have to change the extension to .zip first though.
That's just a guess off the top of my head, so it might be wrong. I'm not really willin ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 4258 views) Posted: 655d 0h, 18m ago by Gradonil_Ral in News
If a series has terrible art, I mostly likely won't even pick it up in the first place. Not unless I've heard great things about the story. And if the plot is indeed outstanding, I will keep reading it regardless of its art level. ...

New Poll - Spin-Off Series
(13 posts, 1737 views) Posted: 682d 2h, 1m ago by Gradonil_Ral in News
Manga should be standalone. A spin-off needs to be really good for me to read it. And it should, at the very least, be by the original author. Spin-offs by other people usually mean a huge drop in quality of both the story and the art. Unfortunately. ...

New Poll - Two Page Spreads in Scanlations

Being a scanlator, myself, I know how annoying some redraws can be. Double spreads are often easy enough, but there are also those that'll make you wanna scream ^^;
For example, this one took me a lot of time (that's from over 5yrs ago when I ...

I know they might seem opposites to some, but I'd either be an athlete or a bookworm. Possibly both. ^^
