Quote from 8-3
How do you feel about racist content in manga?
-It's as offensive as racist content found anywhere else
-It's a little shocking, but I understand that Japanese racial humor tends to be different from the rest of the world
-It's kind of funny/interesting, because Japan seems to come up with very unique stereotypes
-I feel indifferent

I'm sure many of you have crossed paths with something like this.

Some manga do get banned/censored/altered in certain countries due to racist imagery. What's seen as light-hearted humor in Japan could be regarded as offensive in other countries. For instance, the Viz Media version of Dragon Ball actually removed Mr. Popo's lips, due to the resemblance to "Blackface."

And compared to other countries, namely western ones, racial stereotypes actually are vastly different in Japan. Two very common stereotypes that I see in manga are that Chinese people supposedly end their sentences with "-aru," and that every black man is named "Bob."

This type of question has been posed a few times before but hopefully this is a good spin on it:

What would you consider to be "too many chapters" for a series you'd otherwise be interested in reading?
-I only read short manga (1-24 chapters)
-50 Chapters
-100 Chapters
-300 Chapters
-500 Chapters
-1000 Chapters
-There is no such thing as "too many"
-I just read until I'm bored

Quote from Dreverhaven
You've dealt with SFX in polls twice, in 2009 and 2016, but in both cases I think the question didn't really get to the core of the issue. The general majority answer is that they're better left as notes, but what if readers are specifically asked about SFX in the context of scanlation pace? As a scanlator, I think that would be more informative. Also, in-bubble SFX aren't controversial, most groups typeset and redraw them. Off-bubble ones are the crux of the matter. How about this poll:

Which of the following statements best reflects your opinion on how scanlators should deal with off-bubble SFX?

a) SFX are part of the art and as such should be left in place, their translation being typeset in small size next to them or on the margins as notes.

b) Some SFX are needed to understand the context of a scene (like a door opening in off to signal a character has entered a room unnoticed). These should be typeset and redrawn. Everything else can be ignored or left as notes.

c) SFX significantly increase enjoyment of reading comics. They should be typeset and redrawn in all cases, so long as that doesn't compromise a regular, frequent release pace. (If that is even possible.)

d) SFX are essential for scanlation to be true to the original. They should be typeset and redrawn all the time, regardless of how it might affect release pace. I'm patient!

e) SFX are a distraction even as notes. After reading manga for a while, everyone can guess what they mean since they always repeat themselves. And most people turn them off in their brain anyway. SFX notes clutter the margins and panels, are a drag on the typesetter and even more on the redrawer. Scanlators should ignore them altogether.

For the record, we at Death Toll scans follow a) or, in some easier projects, b).

Ok

Listening music while reading manga helps to connect to story and characters. What do you think?

I'm curious if you guys feel the same about this.

Are you dissatisfied with the legal offering of digital manga? (That means if there would be no scanlation or illegal manga hosting site)

A) Yes, the manga industry has to work harder or innovate to also serve international demand.
B) No, I'm fine with using illegal content and not supporting the mangeka.

This is something I'm curious about. I'm fond of realistic stories, but I know a lot of people like reading fantasy novels or comics to temporarily escape reality and find themselves in an epic atmosphere.

You usually prefer:
- stories that are as realistic as possible, without any supernatural elements.
- stories that are set in a completely different dimension and include fantastic elements.
- stories that have a realistic setting but also include some supernatural elements (e.g. a normal girl who lives in our world suddently acquires the ability to time travel).

Worst type of anime adaption generally tends to be...
- Video game (including or excluding eroge, mobile game, MMO) to anime
- Visual novel to anime
- Light novel, web novel, novel to anime (Maybe separate these?)
- Music video to anime
- Live action to anime
- Manga to anime
- Non-Japanese media to anime

Add others if you like.
