Why do people use comic san as a font when translating manga? It's pig disgusting.
>>
makes it easier to read, also looks better than a lot of other fonts in small sizes.
>>
People always bitch about Comic Sans but they never say which font you SHOULD use.
>>
monafont is the only font
>>
They really don't know any better. Trust me, I speak from personal experience.

>>10105773
Digital Strip works quite nicely for that.
>>
Because they're too lazy to get real fonts.

monafont is the only font

Well the two main reason why everyone hates it, is because;

1) It's overused. Or used to be, back in the day.
2) People use it improperly. It's bee found on memos and lot of other things that aren't comics.

talk about stupid things to complain about, as long as I can understand it I don't give a font on which fucking font they use

Why do people use comic fonts, period? You're not fooling anyone into thinking that you hand-wrote those lines, a good sans-serif font is much easier to read even at smaller sizes and the original work doesn't even use a comic font to begin with (99% of the time, anyway).
I'm not taking "it's tradition" for an answer.

Today I got some leaflet in the mail about "how to listen to children and earn their trust" and it was all written in fucking Comic Sans.

P.D. I already know how I'll breed my future loli waifu
