Let's do a General thread for question and others things.
*Next Comiket: August 15~17.
Something nice: http://www.comiket.co.jp/archives/Chronology.html
*Apparently, Wani (publisher of COMIC Kairakuten etc.) is trying to stop scanlation. Some groups stopped as TLLP (http://www.fakku.net/users/njmanga/posts). What do you think?
>C85 Discussion (old):
They should just block access to Japan. Not like you can even buy these magazines anywhere else.
I could understand this move if they were going to release their magazine outside of Japan (maybe even translated and uncensored? Haha, a man can dream) but the chance of that happening is about -50%.
Strange, the Napata stuff e.g. are still here.
I agree, but uploader will be blocked too. But it'd be possible to allow only them, right?
>were going to release their magazine
I don't think so. They're tracking 'us' because Japanese can read English, so... why buy things when you can read them in English (and of course in Japanese with the RAW)?
Well at least that's what they probably think.
>They should just block access to Japan.
>I agree, but uploader will be blocked too.
If the raws are uploaded somewhere else on the net, translators still can get them and release the translated version. Or it could be done in a way that registered members can circumvent the IP range ban, enabling both uploading and viewing to people in Japan. I doubt that those guys doing the web copyright patrol are even able to figure out how to make an account.
Stuff should be taken out of Google, too.
>are even able to figure out how to make an account.
sounds like you're severely underestimating them
if it were that easy they could just remove the stuff from e-hentai and leave it up on ex, but it's gone from both
If they were trying to stop scanlation, they would go after comic-han. This hasn't happened. This is directed mainly at English translations of works. Almost no non-English sites have been targeted from current appearances.
>there will never be a successful and thriving official hentai translating scene
This is one of the biggest pitfalls of English-speaking countries. At least other places have their own drawn porn.

Raws Guy here, finally uploaded Kairakuten Beast so I'm done with everything, and it did indeed max out my mega account. I think I spent close to a million gp to complete the collection especially for the older works.

pasta from panda threads on /a/.
Can we also share things we read?
I'm actually reading this:
I really like Miyabi's work, though the 'Chou Onee-san Tengoku' was less enjoyable than his previous work.
I'm curious for those of you who buy you doujinshi, if you store and organize them, how do you go about labeling them. Do you list Circle then artist, Artist then circle, or just artist or circle.
That's a pretty fucking stupid idea.
They don't sell those manga/doujin outside of Japan so there is zero profit lost by having it available to an english speaking audience. If anything it becomes free publicity to get these artists known by people that will become fans and spend the extra dosh to import the books. I know I did it.
As someone that actually does scanlation and has actually gone out and purchased the hard copy of books after liking them so much I can say that this move would only shoot them in the foot. I did commissions for a while which is proof enough for me that fans are willing to spend large amounts of money for the things they enjoy. I know it would never fly but if anything they should be looking for western publishers to bring uncensored versions of these books stateside. They could provide them with the raw files for some fee or percentage and allow professional designers to create western releases to be sold at conventions or online or whatever. But this is what industry that piracy actually helps.
If the site just blocked Japan, that would probably be sufficient to make them lay off because they probably only care about Japanese viewership.
They probably only go after the English-speaking ones because English is the most common second language there because it's taught in schools.
I have a question about tagging genres. If a boy is forced to watch his mom getting fucked and then the boy starts to masturbate what is it called? Netorare, incest, voyeurism? None of them?
Let's know each other better.
>When did you 'discover' hentai?
10. My first hentai (at least the oldest I got) is [YLANG-YLANG (Ichie Ryoko)] PINK PRISONER (D.Gray-man)
>What's your favourite genre?
Incest (sister), principally vanilla.
Nothing. Though I'm not a fan of netorare.
>What's your favourite hentai?
Kisaragi Gunma, Love Selection.
I love it when a penis is unreasonably large and the girl takes it unrealistically far up into her chest, and a lot of those pics include smaller than average girls. Not loli?
saw this elsewhere on /d/.
I don't think the problem is scanlation. The problem is they don't want the raws to be available.
The reason isn't even that they don't want people to enjoy them the free way.
They want to prevent people from seeing what degree of censorship to expect before the purchase.
The same has happened to Japanese review sites recently. Somes sites have received C&Ds concerning imagery that allows a grasp on the degree of censorship regarding Wani releases.
Pretty much every manga released from about September 2013 is completely unusable as fap material. It's been getting better recently, but especially Wani is puke inducing with their zebra dicks (and Core Magazine, but that is on an entirely different level of horror).
Some publishers appear to loosen up again, but Wani shows no signs of that so far.
/a/ has been moving too close on /h/ territory recently.
But let's not forget how that all started: With some retarded mod that banned people for discussion on /h/.
The sad panda thread absolutely belongs on /h/ and nowhere else.
Eroscomix had the chance to do it, but sold itself under value. Marketing wasn't aggressive enough and the release speed was like two tanks a year.
Project-H has the marketing and the release speed, but their licensing decision making is among the worst I have ever seen by any media company.
That said, Project-H appears to do surprisingly well. I hope that encourages more endeavors in this direction.
That's because of that stupid law. They got more responsibilities from the Government.
Damn, if even Japan begin to censor where the hell are we going?
I look at all the editor releasing hentai around the world (I mean EU, NA, and Australia), the problem is their marketing.
They don't think too hard about that, just selling like 'normal' things. I don't really think it's the best idea, I'm not sure that people will buy this in store, it's a bit... awkward.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
[spoiler]What are you trying to say?[/spoiler]
Uhh I vaguely remember this really hot doujin but I can't remember neither the artist or the name. There were 2 girls and 1 guy, both of the girls were pretty horny but iirc one of them was a virgin, although she didn't want to admit it. (so the other girl teased her about it) The guy was also a virgin.
I think the only major publishers that haven't licensed overseas so far are Wani and Mujin/TINet.
Granted, those are pretty major ones and especially Wani sits on the most popular authors.
I'm like anime but can't fap on it. I easily fap on normal human porn. Why?
that's the normal thing, why would you be bothered by it so much as to ask it here?
People who read/watch hentai do it for the uncommon fetishes portrayed there that real porn wouldn't do because of logical real restrictions
when I say "uncommon" fetishes don't think of the weird stuff on /d/ (that too) but of things such as highschoolers, defloration, impregnation, incest, tender love, humor, a certain kind of anatomy (hair one color or other, small breasts, you name it), etc.
A normal person has no need for any of this specific stuff to get aroused, so we are just weird
>When did you 'discover' hentai?
At the start of high school, I was pretty naive back then and I liked Naruto/Bleach so naturally as a horny teenager I looked up porn of them. This was before I looked up real porn though.
>What's your favourite genre?
Vanilla and girls getting raped (preferably gang raped)
I know they're too extremes, I don't like NTR though.
NTR and Futa with rare exceptions if the art is really really good.
>What's your favourite hentai?
Monhan no Erohon 12
Hard to think of fetishes that aren't more just favorite sexual acts like deepthroating while cumming inside mouth.
How often do you guys fap to hentai/real porn? I pretty much fap to hentai 90% of the time. Real porn gives me a bad aftertaste for some reason but I don't get his after looking at hentai for some reason. Also real porn is boring, it's mostly the same unless you're into some crazy fetish.
>Also real porn is boring, it's mostly the same
>My hips are moving on their own!
>Even though it's my first time, I'm gonna cum!
A reason I like to read hentai but mostly only fap to 3D hentai or a handful of carefully picked RL porn. Always the same characters, always repeating animations with stupidly low frame count, muh animu ultra generic faces; ultra generic being the problem here.
In that regard I think that even if it's often (again) the same characters, drawn porn gives much better differences between artists styles. Anime hentai doesn't give me this vibe; I find that the style often is too similar even between different studios.
I don't enjoy fapping to still pictures either, but I do enjoy seeing drawings a lot and often will begin by doing this.
A lot of themes are impossible for RL porn without being illegal or impractical to set up. There's an infinite amount of artists and different types of girls that are all hot to choose from. RL porn has the constraints of the real world so once you find that one really hot pornstar you won't get much better.
Well thats just terrible. And with the new censoring laws... this is turning into a horrible time to be alive
It's still alive!
Well since /a/ has sad panda thread, people don't come here.
Lately /h/ begin to chat more and more, just look at the Cxx General.
