You shouldn't be using online readers to begin with.

>>101134429
Not him but I remember a long time ago I wanted to DL One Piece chapters and only one group did decent scans. They didn't have any sort of batch file so I had to download single chapters and they were all rars

Took so fucking long extracting them one by one. It doesn't make sense on files so small

Well I don't know why it even keeps going at this point. Going by the mangaka's track record she is going to shit it up and get it axed just like yankee-kun and make the worst ending in history.

don't forget about the company going bankrupt and never releasing another volume, and the group dying. Or just straight up never translating the property. This shit is endemic with light novels.

I've actually been thinking about buying some GUNNM: Last Order volumes, if only to hide them secretly in a box somewhere. Whoever is doing the translation does it accurately and up-to-date, and I can get the English volumes. cheaply and with a minimum of bullshit off amazon. Obviously i'm not patient enough to wait for the time delay in publishing and shit and steal them off the internet, but this company has their shit together and I always feel like i should support them for not being fucking retarded.

Then I remember I'd have to ship them home to my mom and she'd be receiving them weird Japanese comics.

CR IS official release and since it already exists, there's nothing wrong with fan scans stopping since the whole point of fan scans is that most people can't read moon.

And you don't have to pay CR to read the latest chapter, it's the archives that you have to pay, which shouldn't be an issue since HS is ripping them anyway.

Well it's more of a PROzess issue though. Hell translate the first 5 chapters if there boobs and panties and then lose interest.

I just refresh the "releases" page on mangaupdates daily and scan through to see if anything I like has popped up. If you're a sperg and like to hook up your RSS feeds and all that it's probably going to irritate the fuck out of you, obviously there's no way to avoid missing things. I guess you could set up some sort of feed that checks the page for the name of the title and alerts you, although I have no idea how you would go about doing that. It also got real annoying now that they were forced to remove scanlators websites, I want to punch whoever was responsible for that in the throat and then kick them in the fucking nuts.

There's not a chance in hell they're going to be able to pick up more than a dozen series, two max, without some serious manpower. Doing a decent quality scanlation is time-consuming.

Ultimately Crunchyroll. They rolled out their online manga reader the same time MU's paypal was slapped with DMCA. In the process of removing group links they deleted several orphaned groups and their releases. The groups were dead for like 7 years already and naturally didn't have twitter or facebook contact details.

MU could give up the database to other people but they don't want to because the leadership makes money off MU. MU is going to kill itself slowly because at this point I just scrape batoto for releases and new series that might interest me.

Most scanlators don't give a shit. It's why you don't hear much from the groups who aren't retarded. It's always the few idiots who start drama and thus draw attention that stays in people's mind.

I was on a forum for 3 years and had almost 40k posts.

Mind you this was a very spammy forum, spam was not discouraged as long as you kept it to the right sections. Stuff like Off topic chat threads.

Our top three posters were all in the 98-110k range and most active oldfags sported at least 40-60k

Ah, I see. I hardly ever read manga because "translation ongoing" is an instant "ill wait a year to see if its done" procedure for me with few exceptions, since i know damn well about drama/sub group dying right in the middle/subgroup deciding not give a shit anymore horseshit.

Anyway to know which groups do this so i can stay the fuck away from them? Also what type of drama ensues generally? The only thing I know is bitching about manga hosting sites and "stealing"

Apparently mangafox and its sister companies make $13000 a day if you are to believe the credit pages for the most recent scanlator group being butthurt about it. They are so butthurt they have 10 credit pages mixed into their release, each page being 4MB or so.

>>101136504
Torrents are terrible for releasing manga. Especially per chapter. Seeds are terrible after even a little while and v2s and all kinds of shit just make it unwieldly. Only torrent completed things.

That particular example was a scanlation group ran by women. I put up with their inital bullshit like registering a forum account and make a few non-spam posts. When I have to spend more time on their forum than I do reading their releases there is something very wrong with them. Thanks to people putting up with their bullshit posting their releases to mangatraders they eventually went 100% private.
>>
>>101136624
Maybe they want to start doing them in other languages so just having blank speech bubbles would make it easier for the next language and you wouldn't need the same chapter on the site several times.

That may be but I'm on windoze and it's my best option. In fact powershell is quite nice as long you remain on windoze.

>>101136694
They have a locale section though for that. And some of the series are blank, some aren't. It's odd.

>I will never get a new chapter of Limit ever.
Vertical published all six volumes.
>>
>>101136584
I suppose it would be bad for per chapter as they would have to release them in the forums and not as torrents.
But most series are only one volume anyway, so it would be hardly an issue to scanlate 6 chapters at once and have a complete volume as a torrent.
>>
>>101136568
I'd be pissed too if some assholes were making money of something I did for free aswell. Scanlators maybe be thieves but they are non-profit ones.

Scanlators will translate 20 chapters of some shit and then release them one at a time weekly. Gotta stretch out how long they can get donations and praise
>>
>>101136728
I liked it but not so much that I would BUY a physical copy. On that matter I've kept my manga and anime interest a secret for the past 15 years so physical goods is a no go. I do have a few series in physical form that I have to get rid of before I die.
>>
>>101136759
Those numbers are probably taken out of the scanlation's groups asses though. I doubt you can make that much on ads for serving manga to a mostly underaged audience.
>>
>mfw casually translate the odd doujin when I have time and anonymously post them on 4chan (whichever board is most relevant)

Holy shit, why are people so conceited about this? You speak >1 language, you're not that special. I've gotten into a few LJ communities because I have an old LJ account that I've never posted in, download their raws that I have interest in and translate and release them just to cockblock the self-entitled little shits. jisho.org and Google Translate doesn't give you reason to be a cunt.

Torrents could work with a couple of dedicated (as in loyal) seedboxes.

And making it somewhat easy for individual users to mirror precisely everything.

Scanlator filenames are still the fucking worst.

I downloaded a whole bunch of manga so I could put it on my tablet, and wrote a script to deal with it, which I further edited per series as new bullshit popped up. I still had to edit some filenames manually, though, like in the case of Needless here - some filenames didn't originally have chapter numbers at all, they had volume number and chapter name (the SugoiSugoi scans) and the special also didn't have any kind of number to indicate where it would go so I had to look it up online.

And even after I got all the filenames sorted out I still got tripped over the fact that some fuckwits had stuffed archives inside archives and Perfect Reader on Android can't deal with that. FUCK.

Editing all those chapter names by hand would have been horrifying (I had 328 files total for 15 series to deal with), that's why I scripted it. Even though the script needed adjusting like every two series for new and imaginative filenames and I had to rename some files manually it was still way less work (plus a lot less boring).

I got some quality laughter out of it yesterday on IRC with other scanlators.

The best part is that their website will redirect to some adfly shit just by visiting it. Site/download links are peppered with ad-links and Donation begging is topkek.

Some scanlation teams want money to fund their servers and buy scans. I dont see an issue.
>>
>>101135953
Except that CR doesn't let me see lots of things simply because I'm not from Murrika.
Paying the same as everyone else, but not being able to watch/read 90% of the stuff they release? No thanks.
Scanlator should drop the shows only once CR pull out the stick out of their ass and let everyone who is registered read everything.
>>
>>101139810
I tried the page out myself, as I always do before I pass on work, and I can do it fine without a noise filter

What's worse is I have been noticing this certain staff member use noise filters on the most perfect of tank raws

what raw shouldn't be using noise filter at all? HQ tank raw and webcomic?
>>
>>101136450
If it's a forum like 4chan, where slightly off topic posts aren't discouraged and people use it more as a chat than as a forum, I can see even 50 posts a day happening.
Especially on days where more than 1 manga I read gets released.

>>101141284
Yep, tank raws are easy enough to clean considering you used a decent scanner since I find the paper texture is minimal enough compared to say, magazine raws that Jump scanlators use

That's an extreme example though
>>
>>101139178
bakabt has a good amount. Even if they don't usually touch licenced anime, they will allow licensed manga...for some reason.
