Quality scans make the enjoyment of reading manga even better because you can really appreciate the art work and the feel the manga is trying to give, especially if there's a good typesetter that try their best to follow a similar font that the raws are using, and not just make the text really thick to cover up redraws for example.
But yeah, if it's a series I'm really into and I wanna see what happens next, I'll check out the dodgy scans.
I agree with this. I mean, if I wanted to read a great story, I would pick up a book, but I read manga because I also enjoy the art that goes with the story. And some typesetters dont even cover up redraws, they cover up the SFXs, but that is the cleaners fault for not removing them.
If it is a good series, I will continue to read it aswell, but it has to be exceptional. I continued reading Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori despite that halfway through the scans went dodgy for a few volumes.
Quote from Hanae
However, when the manga is very good, I can forget about these and just focus on the story. But I can't do this when the translation is very bad, in such cases I usually drop the manga and wait for better quality scanlations to appear.
Yeah, I see what you mean. I read Mars despite the fact it was entirely double-paged (I think it was anyway, It was a long time ago)
Quote from KaoriNite
There have been a couple of times when I didn't start a series because I thought the quality would bother me
That's exactly why I started this thread! I was going to read Saver but when I saw the quality of the scanlations, I gave up.
Quote from Tesserr0rCakess
I've always read manga on my phone or tablet and having to zoom in to specific panels is just frustrating to read. I deeply appreciate any scans whether it be good or bad.
Being a scanlator myself, i can appreciate the time and effort that goes into a chapter of manga, but I too read my manga on a mobile device, so double page spread series kills my eyes so much.
