Act like a man/woman of your age. related to egscans or not, you are agitating far too many people in scanlations community. When i see your acts, i remember my embarrassing moments when i was a middle schooler, which i don't want to remember.

come on guys for real... it's not about fast vs quality... that other guy is using Claudia name and is doing low quality work on a project EGS has invested on. How can you be alright with this? I understand the curiosity to read a manga you like faster but if you really do like it you should respect the people who worked on it and not support the immoral ones.

lol I find it cool. I really really hope that scanlation will become a profitable business so much that the goverments make harsh laws against it. The internet becomes totally restricted and people who do any kind of scanlations, free or pricey, goes to jail. Ahh yes, I also hope that don't give a damn about poor students...that's just a idiotic excuse to say: I steal cuz I got too few money to buy food...I use them for my BMW bigrazz

Btw I have reported mangapirate. I just hope more people will report them to the proper authorities so the people working there can get caught and thrown in jail. I think we got enough faggots like NOEZ already so we don't need more.

Stay cool and smoke a joint or something...

/me continues reading Kingdom vol 17~

That was a good one. Calling others "aggregate" while they are same.
I am not biased as I do not completly favour Batoto as it hosts several comics done by groups which are not interested in Batoto's ad-revenue program. Batoto reasons that they will remove them,if said group doesnt feels like it. But the money earned from this is same as that of mf and others,the only difference is that people who respects scanlators favour them for it.
Batoto is also becoming somewhat "aggregate" by hosting comics done by the groups which are either dead or not interested in its ad-revenue program.Ofcourse they can provide tons of explainations if you ask them about it. (And I am sure I am going to get hate replies.)
If I am wrong then can you please tell where does the money earned from this comics go? I am sure that amount of money is MORE than emough to pay for servers.
Batoto is not as pure as I originally thought it to be, but it is better than MF and MP.

The reason for MP doing that is actually truly petty i think, it may be related to the fact that batoto banned MP manga because of advert spamming despite warnings. Not 100% sure this is the reason but probably a partial reason to Mp actions.

Ofcourse mangapirate would be banned on batoto , after what they did any reasonable person would chose to remove them from his home if he has the power to do so.

Tragicking - no hate , just explanation. If a group doesnt want to participate in the ad revenue program we offered(which i must say were counting on my fingers), but also doesnt like any adds to appear on their series , we can remove them , which is something those few groups liked and wanted to be done, so it was.

Money doesnt go into anyone's pocket , it goes for servers cost , batoto is larger than it was ever before and without google adsense which was like 90% of where the money came from to pay the servers , its far harder now , than it was before to answer the demand of the ever increasing members waiting to read, if you have been ever on sunday around the time tog's raws are released you will realise the need for more or better servers , but atm there is no way to afford that. (Though true enough it isnt a clear answer to where the money goes , it shows you much better , that atleast batoto isnt a money making machine and barely has enough to repair itself when broken biggrin )

youni, pardon my curiosity, but why are you using Google AdSense on a site full of stolen content? Is Google okay with that?

I'll wait for TheCompany releases as I enjoy quality releases!

Just bothers me when there are multiple typos in a release makes me wonder what else they got wrong!

I read a couple of Mangapirate releases, but got annoyed with the lacking quality so decided to re-read the company releases and wait for them.

In any case whether you read Mangapirate or TheCompany it's not like you get the releases faster!

Let me explain:

Mangapirate releases ToG about five days before TheCompany, but you still have to wait seven days for the next release whether you choose quality or speed releases and that's the reason I'll wait for TheCompany releases

So it's seven days wait for bad quality or seven days wait for good quality...

This is not a difficult decision people...

Edit:

After reading through the posts, and realising what kind of peoplemangapirate are ... I'm definitely not going back to their site ... man that guy is a douche!

I think you are wrong on the MP's quality fall. After reading your post,I checked both versions of TOG and I really didnt find any quality difference.
I would say that their scanlation quality have improved very much in really a short amount of time.
No one is perfect from the start,you see. Their translations of the TOG(I checked last 2 chapters) were on same scale of The Company,if not higher. Plus in that short amount of time they cleaned sfx and otherthings which is really remarkable. Their progress is really worth mentioning for a new group and well if you cant acknowledge that then you are really being biased.
While I dont support their idea of hosting series which they are not working on(the only part which made me somewhat uneasy about them in the past),but I do feel it now to support their rise as a' scanlation group'.
Before anyone says that I have become their puppet again or that I am in alliance with them, please check the quality for yourself before speaking.

Something small as that can be easily ignored. It wasnt even worth mentioning. Or are you perhaps saying that you are completly perfect? I have never seen anyone so conceited like you. Didnt you noticed that their cleaning and typsetting also have improved ? I guess some people can never accep things when their own self proclaimed pride is hurting them.
Anyways are you MP's stalker?

that will dig scanlation community's grave my friend. Leave local regulations aside, Japanese publishers have all the exclusive international legal rights to stop all popular scanlation activities and force us to go underground. The fact that they don't do is because they ignore us small fries.

And trust me, they really can if they want to.

No, i'm not a stalker. I haven't read their version of the chapter until you pretty much said that it was perfect , while it wasnt one at all. And no , sloppy work will always be sloppy , so i havent noticed how they improved , when they havent.
