Quote from hiei_luke
What will you do if your favourite/watched-list manga was already completed but the scanlation was too slow to keep up with your series:
1) Zombie-mode search for the RAWS
2) Keep up with the slow release, check every now & then
3) Give up, might as well wait for the scanlation group to finish their job (come back after 5 years)
4) Got other manga to read -> totally forgot about them

(remember, its only applies to your favourite or eager-to-read-'em-up series, not the "okay" series)

Your favourite manga/anime character apears in front of you and offer you a chance to go to the manga/anime world but you can only go alone and you will never return to our world again. Will you go?

How about a poll on plagiarism (e.g. Eden no Hana by SUETSUGU Yuki? I always wanted to know how people deal with it.

Have you ever come across plagiarism in manga, and if you have, how did you react?

- Yes, I have, and I dropped both the series and the author. Stealing other someone else's work is the worst!

- Yes, I have, and I dropped the series, but continued reading the author's other manga. Everyone can make a mistake.

- Yes, I have, and I continued reading the series, but avoided the author in future. I simply couldn't drop the manga, but I felt guilty afterwards.

- Yes, I have, and I continued reading both the manga and the author's work. Copyright is overvalued and old-fashioned anyway.

- No, I haven't seen any plagiarism so far.

What is your opinion on scanlation notes (like the ones on the sides of pages)?

-They shouldn't be used at all, it's distracting!
-They should only be used to clarify meaning/translations.
-They should only be posted at the end of the chapter.
-I like commentary, it's funny.
-I don't read them.

I don't know if this was ever suggested before, if yes, I apologize for repetition:

Which do you prefer that scanlators/fansubbers do when translating cultural/native language specific words, such as the honorifics or words like aniki; onisan, oyaji, etc, that have a subtle difference in meaning in their original language than their translated counterpart.

- I do not care for nuances, I want everything translated into my language.
- I like it better when those are left as is after a short explanation by the scanlators/fansubbers when used first, as the real meaning gets lost in translation.
- I do not care either way.
