Quote from Nightstar
MC is just a group of Air Gear fans that started to scanlate the manga because:

01. Scum-Scans is slow.
02. Scum-Scans has no intention of speeding up.
03. No one else (other than Scum-Scans) is willing to translate, like all the Japanese literate people went into hiding or something.

In the end they are just giving the other Air Gear fans something to read while waiting for the releases from Scum-Scans. At least that's what I heard. I think it is a little unappreciative if you think they're out to get popular or something. Popularity means nothing compared to the time they willingly spend on this. It's not like they are getting paid or are trying to rival Scum-Scans.



01. not really
02. They are people too, they need breaks now and then
03. Yeah, I cant seem to find any myself confused(dont worry we'll find 'em)


True True biggrin

What I appreciate most about MC is their mantra to support Scum when their releases come out. There's always a battle over speedscans vs. qualityscans. My take is pretty clear-- some people want to know the story asap, so they'll read whatever comes first. This doesn't mean they won't check out the quality group's release. If it weren't for speedscans, many of the said "rush readers" would just check out the raws anyways. This isn't really competition in my book. I, personally, will rarely read speedscans since presentation is really important to me. I have a really low tolerance for magazine raws and quick translating jobs, and I'd prefer not to spoil myself by reading raws either. But then again other people think differently, and that's just the nature of the niches ^^

Well... we at Sleeping Forest are trying to increase our quality slowly. We're trying to combine both speed and quality, while speed is still the most important aspect, yet we don't want crap quality.

Currently, we're hovering over MQ/Almost HQ releases.

1 Word:
Super Jerk
Sry, had to use 2 words to describe you.

Anyways... maybe close this topic since MangaCult is now officially been assimilated?
