>8% translating manga, novels, anime
>32% feeding on those translations
>59% just consume everything those above produce
>>
I consume raws and refuse to translate
Fuck EOPs
>>
I write reviews, commentaries, and blog posts.

I mean, shitposting on /a/ counts, right?
>>
>>136200093
Same. Well, I mean, I can summarize for others. Otherwise, though, I probably won't translate anything that large for people.

>>136200067
>32% feeding on those translations
What does this mean?
>>
Consuming stuff for free is one thing
But working for free?
Those translators are the cuckest of the cucks to ever cuck in cuckland.
>>
>>136200157
>>32% feeding on those translations
not OP but based on the image I assume borrowing the popularity to get people to read their fanfiction tier fanfiction/fanart/etc
>>
>>136200067
Apart from illustration, doujinshi or translating all of that other shit is annoying and a waste of time. I'm guessing .1% of those illustrators could be rated 'decent' in the artist scale, less even for the doujinshi fags given what I see on exhentai.

>1% can understand nip, don't need translation, don't need to translate anything for others
>8+32+59% beyond salvation
>>
anything that becomes mainstream become shit.
>>
>>136200321
More like
>1% can understand nip but don't translate anything for others
It's not like I blame them, because I too would only consume if I understand moon runes.
>>
>>136200759
Like /a/
>>
>>136200093
This. Translators don't deserve anything either. they shouldn't be helping EOPs who are too retarded to learn the language anyway.
>>
>>136201789
Its like they dont understand that making stuff accessible to westerners will only harm what they like in the long run
>>
>>136201850
I don't see how this is the case. No matter how you see it, westerner appeal is an injection of financial capital.
>>
>>136201891
Not this shit again.

No it isnt.

>know 3 languages

>handled the same way as the lazy faggots who never learned anything other than English
Yeah, fuck me.
>>
>>136201891
What series has actually benefited thanks to western attention? Watamote? Wow.
>>
>>136201891
Capital that western publishers keep. It doesnt help Japan much and in turn you get dangerous western influences
>>
>>136201958
You chose poorly.
Good news is, its never too late.
>>
>>136201958
>know 3 languages
>one of them is Japanese
>get to handle lazy faggots who never learned Japanese but whine on image boards for scanlations
Haha, fuck you
>>
>>136200093
Fuck off to your containment thread.
>>
>>136201913
>>136201969
>>136201996
Exactly, Western attention does fuck all

You can thank me later

One of the 3 is German, so I'm not really in the mood for another useless language.
>>
>>136202072
What defines a known language being "useful". Is utilization for the purpose of enjoyment through consumption of media not "useful" enough for you? It turns out that it is actually possible to learn a language for the sake of this thing called "fun".
>>
>>136202072
Why would you ever pick up german man.
>>

8% is pretty good.
>>
>>136202254
It really is, which sucks.
>>
>>136202254
Youd need every person that takes part in anime consumption online to vote in that poll, then you would get your 1%, maybe even less.

>For example, a large 2005 study of radical Jihadist forums by Akil N Awan found 87% of users had never posted on the forums, 13% had posted at least once, 5% had posted 50 or more times, and only 1% had posted 500 or more times.[5]

He's probably fell for the school meme that any language except English will be useful in the future

Only Spanish kinda is.

Spread where?
China is already on decline, it was only an illusion.
>>
>>136200067
I don't understand what you were expecting, honestly

Only a minority of manga is worth devoting the brain energy and time to reading. The rest needs the flair of animation, sound effects, VA and music.

I never read anything below Berserk tier, which is almost everything

>>136204851
>I never read anything below Berserk tier
You poor soul. Those artists are going to die of the japanese cold before they finish anything.
>>
>>136204851
>implying berserk is good

This /v/ meme needs to die
>>
Is this supposed to be strange? I don't create movies or write anime either
>>
>>136200067
i'm pretty grateful towards most translators

that being said, it's pretty normal to have more people consuming than creating in any given field. those who consume then create something else in their own fields. that's the general idea anyway. unless you're some NEET from /a/
>>
>>136200093
Thank you for being a selfish little shit.
>>
>>136204851
Plenty of manga is fantastic. There's just an incredibly small amount with even average translation work out there.

LNs are even worse, it's just the blind leading the blind. I feel incredibly bad for anyone who can't even invest the couple of months it takes to be able to read basic shit like shonen manga, they really don't know what they're missing.
>>
>>136208412
>BAWW WHY AREN'T YOU SPOONFEEDING ME THE CONTENT
You've got to be a real faggot to think people are "selfish" for trying to help you.

Instead of depending on others to fish for you, why don't you just learn how to fish?
>>
Imagine if nothing got translations or subs.

/a/ would be amazing to browse
>>
>>136209208
4chan wouldn't even be a thing since literally who was a EOP fuck.
>>
>>136209604
But we are in the Hiro era now, I can dream.
>>
>>136200093
This. If I translate even one thing, I'll have an army of ungrateful freeloaders in my inbox
>>
>>136203012
I'm American, Chinese and nipponese trilingual. Moreover, most Chinese have better English than inner city Americans. Learning Chinese is pointless
>>
>>136208412
my pleasure.
>>
>>136209843
Who also use emoticons and memes
>>
>>136203026
The chinese have a presence everywhere. Which is why the term "chinatown" or "little china" is understood and relatable across multiple borders.
>>
>>136209940
Why cant Japs learn English too?

Fucking numbers, how do they work.

He is talking about chinks who live in murrica. Chinese chinks don't speak English.
>>
>>136210364
I disagree. "Yes. Thank you. Egg roll please. No Fried rice. Yes, Thank you. I Study for exam now, yes." Is arguably better English than "Yo Jamal, you down the hoops court checkin' fine hoes? Weed n' shit nigga."
At least the Chinese mainlander forms semi coherent thoughts with almost standard grammar.
>>
>>136209208
It would be different, but threads like this don't really make it seem like it would be any better.
>>
>>136203026
You should look up Chinese mining groups in Africa, it's pretty interesting stuff seeing them building new towns on mining sites for their workers and families.
>>
>>136203012
>Chinese
>being spoken anywhere outside of China
>>
Should I learn Japanese? I really want to learn another language, english is too easy.
>>
>>136211189
Dont bother.
Just keep on leeching off the translatorcucks like the majority of this board
>>
>>136209843
>implying I wouldn't suck you dick for that
There's nothing wrong with sucking a dick of that guy who translates your animu/manga/ln into glorious english language
>>
>>136200067
>59% just consume everything those above produce
Next you'll astonish me by showing me that more people watch anime than produce anime, that more people attend Comiket as visitors than as participants, and that more people read than write.
