At the risk of raising e-peen, what's the best scan group out there?

I nominate pic related, they may not be the fastest but it's always quality work. And they've won my respect since Medaka Box.
>>
Maigo.

Dropping RING KING is unforgivable but I still like them.
>>
>won my respect since Medaka Box

Medaka Box is the reason they're a shit scan group. Causing drama and threatening not to scan it anymore because they were being slow faggots and /a/ did it faster for a few weeks.

Bunch of god damn drama whores.

I stopped helping out translation groups because fuck them. When I volunteer my time for a specific series because I am interested in it, don't get into a pissy fit when I don't want to do other series.

The manga translation scene hasn't changed one fucking bit with their drama shit.

For me Turnip Farmers is up there as well, they have the advantage of only working with one Manga, but they work fast and with quality and only asked for enough to cover Raw's and web maintenance.

This is a dumb question, you're not going to like a scan group if you hate the manga they do, and a scan group isn't going to make you like a manga just because they do it, so what's the actual fucking point in asking about the "best" when it's all down to your personal taste in manga
>>
>>121338618
>when it's all down to your personal taste in manga
Nigga what? Obviously groups can differ in quality of translations, editing, timeliness, dramashit, etc. It's not a discussion of "I like X manga so I like Y group."
>>
>>121338807

There are lots of quality scan groups with very little difference in translations, editing, timeliness, dramashit, etc. Therefore the only real reason to call one of the "good" groups the "best" group is that you like the works they do.

Groups that are bad at quality aren't even in the discussion.
>>
>>121325029

Does Boon count? If so, him
>>
>>121339225
Maybe that's just you, anon. I admire those Turnip Farmers as one of the best groups out there, for example, even though I dropped Kingdom a while ago.
>>
Best...? Perhaps Maigo.

My favorite is Ciel Scans.

I dub animexis as the worst, even if they actually aren't.

>one of the best

Well, that's the point isn't it? You don't consider Tulip Farmers to be remarkably better than the other groups you consider to be in the "one of the best" tier, so the idea that a scanlation group could be "the best" is, at best, your personal favorite out of a set whose primary differences are the titles they're working on.

Hox isn't a group, he's just a soldier.
>>
>>121340050
That's really your argument? Because people don't rank a clear and definite best, there's no point in talking about "the best" at all?

Either way, I don't have a single group I call the best, but I still don't see why you're suggesting people would determine the best just primarily on what their favorite series are. There's no correlation between what groups I think are top tier and what groups do my favorite series, since things like TL quality and cleaning ability are much closer to being objective characteristics.

I like Hox but sometimes I think /a/ sucks his dick too much. Let the guy continue his good work and we'll quietly sing his praises when he updates.

Also he needs to mod more, there's been a lot of garbage on /a/ these past few weeks.

OP was asking which group period was the best (and proceeded to single out one of them), which is dumb because as we've agreed, there is no particular difference between "one of the best"-type groups that demonstrate fluency in all the phases of translating.

As far as favorite series go, it is down to simply people are going to read the titles they like and not read the ones they don't, and furthermore they are reading manga to, you know, read the freaking manga and not grade out scanlators on their work.

So if you ask somebody which group singular is the best, they are most likely to pick from the ones they have the most familiarity with, which means the ones they read the most, which means the manga they like the most. Which means OP's post is so much circlejerky nonsense and has been called out as such.

But yeah, there isn't much point in talking about "the best" anyway. It's nice to not suck and all, but in the end if you really like a manga you're going to read it even if the scan group isn't "the best", and if you don't care about a manga you're not going to read it even if "the best" is working on it.

I respect scan groups like CXC. Lasting for long periods of time, doing regular scans. They're like an old dependable Toyota.
