For those that think that admin is overreacting please read http://www.chillingeffects.org/linking/faq.cgi. Can't blame them. But they surely could tell us who is the jackass that send that notice. If the one who send it have any legitimacy than we could only be ...

(23 posts, 2829 views) Posted: 2031d 16h, 6m ago by bakaliner in News
well if there's afterlife then that option can be cancelled. If I can become ghost than the first place i will haunt is some manga collector house lol......

New Poll - Manga and Your Age
(6 posts, 794 views) Posted: 2124d 16h, 54m ago by bakaliner in News
As i see it. reading manga that is directed beyond our age does affect our way of thinking. Especially for teens and children. A kid reading an adult or mature manga can totally change his view on the world. The worst thing is a kid haven't got enough exper ...

And here comes a US moral standard that is always talk about racist or non racist value. Talking about moral standard are not racist, and speaking that someone is morally superior or not is not considered racist. Well US always feel that they are morally superior ...

New Poll - Scanlation Groups and Their Projects
(24 posts, 2475 views) Posted: 2201d 16h, 51m ago by bakaliner in News
yup so selfish. But as scanlation community is basically a free, unbinding, and non profit work. You can be selfish, or maybe you should ;-). Because in the end its the provider that bear the risk. Not the leecher or the reader. ...
New Poll - Earthquake

I'm not sure the casualties would be that high, prob around 1000-3000. I was awed by how the response and preparation for years could prevent more casualties from the tsunami. There are losses and i give my condolences, but wth put the fifth options anyw ...

(29 posts, 1931 views) Posted: 2495d 0h, 13m ago by bakaliner in News
well its a start. First the out of print titles, then someday new titles will also appear in there. Don't forget, there are still a lot of out of print titles out there that we havent read yet. Beside who want to see the latest chapters that are still in print right there anyway ...
Negima's Akamatsu Plans Free Site for Out-of-Print Manga
(29 posts, 1931 views) Posted: 2498d 2h, 12m ago by bakaliner in News
dont worry, if they choose to publish it without a strict DRM maybe some fan translator could contact them, asking if they could help promote their site by translating their work to english. smile ...

(29 posts, 1931 views) Posted: 2498d 2h, 16m ago by bakaliner in News
This is a nice move, and the best thing it comes from the mangaka itself,not the publishers. This will surely be a starter point for every other mangaka.
Think about it guys, mangaka will be able to create new manga titles that is free from publishers constraint. No long ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 113 - Paying for Online Manga
(45 posts, 4541 views) Posted: 2534d 21h, 6m ago by bakaliner in Chatter Box
I agree with most of you, i rather pay for physical copy than pay an online manga. Online manga have other way to support themselves if they are good like donation and advertising. The key is to keep people interested in those title.
Online is also a way to promote y ...

Lol, how many people choose 4 rather than 3. In reality we aren't the top at food chain. Try going to the sea or to the jungle and before you know it we are food for the fish.
Apocalypse at 2012? More like a joke to me. There are no indication whatsoever th ...
Libre Shuppan sending out C&D's
(46 posts, 4533 views) Posted: 2565d 21h, 25m ago by bakaliner in News
ah another less yaoi in the world. but i think its pointless, somehow some other group will be formed, then they will scanlate those title in places where c&d aint gonna reach them. In my country no one even care if some foreign publishers give you a c&d ...

(34 posts, 2654 views) Posted: 2612d 2h, 29m ago by bakaliner in News
its not like its hard to find manga in my country, but for god sake the censorship here is like crazy. And not much title released in my country, and even when it released a lot of times the volume i want to read doesnt even come to my city x(. ...

nothing much i can say as i don't really know him very well except for all the scans he gave to us. The only thing i can do is to give my condolences to his family and friends. RIP no_comxxx. ...
The Situation of Manga Hosting
(122 posts, 12731 views) Posted: 2613d 17h, 33m ago by bakaliner in News
Well it is a common sense. No scanlators who live in US will try to have a legal battles with the publishers. And that leaves the scanlators who aren't living in the US because in reality those people are almost totally out of reach of any C&D from US or J ...
The Situation of Manga Hosting
(122 posts, 12731 views) Posted: 2614d 5h, 2m ago by bakaliner in News
come on, do you think this will end easily. scanlation is like a drug, as long as there is raw and translator, as long as people like to share then scanlation is far from dead. yes, the community would go underground and laid low. No longer will people interested to make ...
One Manga Closing
(111 posts, 9769 views) Posted: 2616d 17h, 36m ago by bakaliner in News
well ive seen it coming from the news for the last few months. But i dont think this is the end, as long as theres scanlators around it aint the end. Yes our reading online days is over at one manga, but there would be other site that would replace it. That site will grow, ...
Removal of Unlicensed Release Links
(86 posts, 7543 views) Posted: 2659d 21h, 53m ago by bakaliner in News
As i see it. This move by publishers only force the community to return to old ways of scanlation, either by going to IRC or closed forums.
I think the one that would be targeted the first are the large sites and sites that produce the most money. They could try to atta ...

(14 posts, 669 views) Posted: 2731d 1h, 14m ago by bakaliner in News
because that is the day where many group tend to make jokes by faking release. Many groups do it every year, and to discern whats true release or not is quite a problem. I hate those days...
btw... if i get my hand on death note i will surely use it... there's so m ...

Did you guys know that recently Kodansha send a letter to MH to force them to remove all of their material from MH. It does hurt a lot, especially since many scanlation group depend on MH for their RAW. If you notice, we dont have any release from Kodansha' ...

hoho, i think i can guess what Luffy saw in her back. I guess its a symbol of Shirohige just like his brother had, or maybe another pirate flag. Thats why she doesnt want to fight against White beard. roll eyes
Just a guess, i dont know if its right but there's a high probab ...
