One of these days, I'm going to organize my things and take pictures of everything I have. I probably have close to a thousand books (French, English & Japanese) either on shelves and boxes. ...
New Poll - Scanlators Asking for Donations
(28 posts, 745 views) Posted: 19d 19h, 25m ago by GGpX in News
As someone who has been scanlating (a lot less of the last year & a half for various reasons) for over a decade, I find it deplorable that some scanlators "need" donations to keep going. If scanlators need donations to keep going, I'm sorr ...
New Poll - Donating for Scanlations
(26 posts, 885 views) Posted: 26d 22h, 13m ago by GGpX in News
The vast, vast majority of groups that demand donations are full of shit.

They use public raws, use free domains, use aggregate online readers as their hosts, etc. and yet they still need donations to "go on". Yeeeeeah, no. They just want to be compens ...

You have to leave it in the original form.

If a story is taking place in Japan, the currency there is Yen. If the story is taking place in England, the currency there are Pounds.

And so on & so forth. ...

Series like Liar Game and profound should never be used in the same sentence.

There's one guy who wrote this in the comment, and it pretty much sums up most mangas in Liar Game's style:

This series is horrible, it has to many of the "I ...
Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 2409 views) Posted: 505d 21h, 23m ago by GGpX in Manga General
I started scanlating in November 2005, so 10 & a half years ago. At first it was to give back to the community like a lot of people, but the more time I spent in the world of scanlations, the less and less it became about giving back to the community. The vast, vas ...
New Poll - Skipping to the End

When I'm actually reading the series, I never skipped to the end. ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 5727 views) Posted: 643d 2h, 27m ago by GGpX in News
It's not better than no release at all because if the scanlation is noticeably bad, then it's distracting. There are plenty of series I've skipped out on reading because the groups doing them were (or still are) terrible. ...

I ended up reading Rah Xephon volume 3, which is probably one of the absolute worst volumes of any manga I've ever read, so I guess I file in the first option. ...

Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(47 posts, 9342 views) Posted: 1233d 5h, 45m ago by GGpX in Suggestions & Bugs
Quote from Chaoskitty
Threads like this make me want to quit scanlations. We don't scan so you little cheap-asses don't have to buy things. We scan so we can share new series so you can go buy other series and items from the mangakas.

Crunchy Roll's scan quality suck, but I'm fully supportive of them being listed here.

They discourage English scanlations by doing their series? Boo fucking hoo. ...
