New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 6396 views) Posted: 860d 5h, 37m ago by mewarmo990 in News
Professional localization translator here, who started doing amateur translation years ago as a hobby.

Let me say that while semantic accuracy (meaning) is, of course, paramount, the choices presented in the poll are oversimplifications.

A good translation transm ...
New Poll - Scanlation Ethics
(80 posts, 11166 views) Posted: 1091d 12h, 36m ago by mewarmo990 in News
It is wrong, but not hard to sympathize with those who do. It sucks for people who can't get the media in their region at a reasonable price, and have to resort to piracy.

Yeah, there will always be pirates and people who will do anything to get stuff for free but ...
126 = CLAYMORE ~ END
(59 posts, 21575 views) Posted: 1217d 6h, 38m ago by mewarmo990 in Claymore
Quote from Toto
That is not official. That is speculation based on limited information.

Basing completion on a preview of the next magazine's ToC does not a series end

Speculation? Yes, it does.

Read the bottom left panel.

For whatever reason -- be it author or publisher decision -- it' ...

New Poll - Sports
(78 posts, 8112 views) Posted: 1217d 17h, 5m ago by mewarmo990 in News
My opinion on sports manga is that the sport doesn't matter. Chances are it's going to get turned into some crazy superhuman Dragonball thing like Prince of Tennis anyway, since recording an actual bout of most sports in comic book form would be ...
New Poll - Amount of Ecchi
(79 posts, 11346 views) Posted: 1232d 4h, 35m ago by mewarmo990 in News
What kind of series are we talking about here?

Sex appeal and sexual jokes aren't necessary at all or even relevant for a lot of genres, and it seems like a very odd question to ask. Sounds to me like this poll is limited to shounen series targeted at adolescen ...

Site Poll - Chat Box 170 - Marrying a Manga Character
(45 posts, 5152 views) Posted: 1291d 14h, 8m ago by mewarmo990 in Chatter Box
Ho ho ho!

No.

Unless the question is if the character was a person in real life. Then it becomes tricky, right? Not really, because most of these fictional characters would be hard to get along with in real life.

I'm looking at you, every tsundere girl ever. Nobody w ...
MangaStream Drops VIZ Media Licensed Series
(170 posts, 19033 views) Posted: 1301d 1h, 10m ago by mewarmo990 in News
A shame to see their most popular work dropped.

But MangaStream is correct in their announcement. It's something mangaka Ken Akamatsu noted in his Twitter and interviews as well - if companies are going to consistently release delayed, expensive, and ...

Kidding. How about:

Assuming money is not an object, how do you prefer to consume your manga?

- Printed book/volume of a series
- Printed periodical considering multiple series
- Online reader

Reality, probably.

Maybe a fantasy world, but if and only if I could still have all my knowledge from the real world. Science, yo. ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 154 - Animals in Manga
(23 posts, 2160 views) Posted: 1419d 18h, 17m ago by mewarmo990 in Chatter Box
Doesn't matter to me as long as it's well thought out.

Animals in manga can serve any purpose, from monsters, to characters we actually care about, to comic relief. It's the execution that matters most. ...

American comic book suggestions?
(20 posts, 1953 views) Posted: 1491d 3h, 41m ago by mewarmo990 in I'm Looking For...
Watchmen is amazing. It might fall as a little too cerebral for your tastes if you want something light, though.

Also, the whole Marvel Civil War/Initiative crossover story arcs are a lot of fun to read, even if they are riddled with the usual inconsistencies. ...

Obviously personality is most important. BUT!

A person's physical appearance is a pretty good indicator of how well they take care of themselves, which is a key to other personality traits. ...

They hurt the industry and the scanlation scene.

It's not that the the concept of reader sites are the problem, but frequently the reality of it is that scanlators have their credits edited out (unless the reader is run by a scanlator group), cleaners' hard wor ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 142 - Cooking up Manga

Hello. I have a good amount of experience translating manga and visual novels in earlier days (though I still work on Fate/hollow ataraxia), and work as a J-E translator IRL.

Just wanted to help out the community so I'll do a chapter or two on my free time, jus ...
Subs vs dubs: discuss and debate!
(65 posts, 6371 views) Posted: 1523d 4h, 57m ago by mewarmo990 in Chatter Box
Original language when it comes to anything. Can't really stand Kingdom Hearts in Japanese, for example, when I've grown up hearing Disney characters in English.

Also note that it's a lot easier to recognize bad acting in a language you under ...

Epic Titles

I love series with epic storylines too!

These are all good ones:

Mahou Sensei Negima! - starts out harem and then, a few volumes in, undergoes a rapid genre shift into an epic fantasy battle manga.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle - similar to the above in that it's ...
How to behave around girls?
(111 posts, 10290 views) Posted: 1579d 21h, 11m ago by mewarmo990 in Chatter Box
Quote from mattai
-Remain calm and avoid sudden movements.
-Give her plenty of room, allowing her to continue her activities undisturbed. If she changes her behavior, you're too close so back away.
-If you see a girl but the girl doesn't see you, deto ...
