What the fuck is up with the tags? This site is getting worse by the day
Great, the new tags don't work with the manga organizer and I can't just drag and drop them anymore. Now I have to wait for it to be updated.
All this just for some new looks no one likes. I can't even see how many points a tag has.
The change is meant to benefit priority users who use special programs to dominate the toplists. That said, why bother helping the site with tagging and expunging when the ponymaster's cronies get to break the rules with secret scripts?
WHERES X EROS 21 AND THE NEWEST KAIRAKUTEN I CANT FIND THEM ON NYAA, WHY JACOB WHY
The tinfoil is strong with this one.
As an anon pointed out already it says in the very front page.
Don't you have western furry shit to upload, Maximum -55?
Anyone can access those "tools". It's listed prominently on the forum where that sort of thing is discussed.
Calm your tits, the people who release raws are unaffected by this whole nonsense. They have X-EROS 21 and Kairakuten 2014-09, they just aren't released to the public yet since they just came out.
PosT the best trap you have
>No option in settings to show tag powers again
Joe plz tell Tenboro to consider it
Au contraire anon, with that statement you are now the biggest faggot online on 4chan right now.
What's your favorite Father-daughter stuff?
Yes, adults really enjoy watching that. I was sketical like you, but grew to love the show after giving it a shot.
The JPN dub is pretty good, for the most part. Miyuki Sawashiro as Twilight and Emiri Katou as Fluttershy. A bunch of other well-known seiyuu appear as well. Off-topic, though, so I'll stop there.
Basically the owner of Fakku decided to publish (legit) porn for a large group of artists and saw sad panda as competition. Sad panda was given the cease and desist warning. Money ruins every passion, anon.
Why can't EXH have the stats page? Was it some kind of issue with keeping EXH separate or is it just Tenboro being fucking obtuse on stuff for no reason?
He will still by around why do you think you don't will see him anymore?
Tags will work like before but you don't will be able to see how they are doing.
Now they are separated in 2 kinds, more than 100 or lower than 100 mod power.
I was wondering this for awhile too. I just assumed that since it was supposed to be sikrit kleb most of the features would've been stripped just to keep things simple.
But seeing as it's no secret I'm not sure.
Gives you lots of hath. And it's fun if you like running servers. They start at 3 hath/day no matter how shitty the server is, and you can get to 8-9 hath/day once it gets going.
VPS's are cheap, but I do have some dedicated servers with spare bandwidth which I tossed [email protected] on.
While Hath and GP is cool, Hath has no purpose beyond a couple of Hath perks, and GP is only useful if you archive everything you read/browse.
Unless you really like the Hentaiverse game, in which case, it might mean more to you.
Is there such a thing as a good hardcore yuri hentai? Every single one I've seen is just either softcore or futa (which I don't even think it counts as yuri). Searching through tags in any hentai website is fucking useless because some idiots think that a threesome scene is enough to classify the whole thing as yuri.
>not opening multiple one shots and working you way through all of them
>not edging all the way, powering through biological impulses toward ultimate pleasure

In some cases I have trouble lasting to the end of a single story. Goddamn you Maeshima Ryo
and apparently nature calls for me
I only used to read only full releases. In 2011 I decided to keep track of each hentai I read because I kept download some ones I had already read. I stopped doing so last year since I started reading more one-shots.
pic related is my list. There are some one-shots here and there, but 99% of the list's items are full volumes.
Hey guys, I'm having a lot of trouble but here goes.
I signed up on the forums and i tried the method to delete the cookie. I can't seem to get past it now it seems. I've tried the haruhichan app for chrome and everytime when I input my user and pass, I get bounced back into the Haruhichan Sad Panda app login page.
Any help here?
Is there some program I can use to view covers for the rar or zip file? Something like pic related that I just found recently.
unless you're trying to load up multiple anthologies at the same time the page limit isn't relevant. or if you have the option checked to disallow [email protected] usage I guess. never been an issue for me regardless.
what if you broke your fingers trying to hit the arrow keys, sounds fucking awful. clearly webcomic reader is inferior because of some shit I just made up. stop being retarded.
>cum so hard jizz exits for 6 seconds straight
>that feel when your favorite artist hasn't released a CG set in 6 months, when he used to release one every month or two
I want to die. I even bought some of his stuff because I wanted to support one of the only guys making that kind of fetish stuff.
What makes it worse is that I know he isn't dead, because he's still releasing stuff under a different circle name.
Took less time to be uploaded than I thought it would.
It's less of a tagging issue, and more of a "nobody fucking makes this stuff" issue.
I'm sure there's some stuff hidden in those thousands of pages that nobody bothered tagging, though.
>Why doesn't sadpanda have a verbal abuse tag?
It actually does, the problem is it's never ever used so it's difficult to discern whether or not people are unaware of its existence or there aren't many works that feature it.
These are all I've been able to find with the tag/the content.
This thread needs more loli.
Joe, if you ever catch this, I found a wrongly-deleted/hidden gallery
Yahiro Pochi is with Wani now but that tank was published by Shounen Gahosha, unless Wani somehow gained rights to it.
So, has X-EROS 21 been released yet? I saw a site that supossedly has it but it has some weird blank file and "instructions" on extracting but the .txt file is always corrupted to me so I can't read shit but suspect malware.
It's been out since July 26th. The usual raw provider has it, but it's only available to donors/contributors for now. They seem to have a pretty large backlog of magazines to release, and with their release schedule it'll probably be about 3-4 weeks til it's out.
>that horrible moment between seeing a new doujin from an artist you like, to realising it's KanColle
It's like having your heart ripped out and stomped on. And now it's the most popular fucking thing at Comiket because these people are sheep who flock to wherever the most money is.
I can't believe Fatalpulse is making another goddamn kancolle doujin.
No one cares about seeing characters they don't give a shit about because they have no personality and just exist to sell a shit game break. It's just boring.
The rampant hatred for it is more confusing to me than the popularity of it.
If the art is good, who cares what it's parodying?
Comic-han doesn't release scans anymore.
Because the subject matter is fucking boring. Kancolle characters are incredibly vapid and most of the time they're fucking the Admiral while making ship puns.
It's mind numbing.
Not to mention most of the designs are meh at best.
>If the art is good, who cares what it's parodying?
The whole point of half of these artists is that they create parody works.
Every faggot working on Kanshit is someone not working on a doujin for some anime you probably watched. I can enjoy some generic rape if it's with some cute characters I saw 2 months ago, I can't if it's basically just "original the character".
It really doesn't help that every single design aside from Shimakaze is terrible, either.
I just read http://exhentai.org/g/599982/20607778d8/ and it was so incredibly fucking hot, but I have a request.
Is there anything like this but with a trap instead? If the girl was replaced with a trap it would be the hottest thing I've ever seen in my entire life. The fap would be legendary.
>Kancolle characters are incredibly vapid
Can't the same be said of 2hu characters if we're talking strictly canon?
I understand what you're saying though. Maybe I don't notice because I don't tend to search for vanilla works and don't stumble upon what you're saying terribly often and I don't notice it.
>Not to mention most of the designs are meh at best.
They're pretty hot.
It's not like I'm defending Touhou either. That's a whole other shitpile.
But I will say that at least touhou designs are more varied, and have interesting powers that could be used in erotic ways. Even though they never are.
Kancolle has so many similar looking designs.
Also Touhou has better lolis.
>Average regime self-defense mechanism
Today, after finishing core 2000 and dicking around with yotsuba i tried my luck with reading actual hentai.
It turns out i can actually read while masturbating in a pretty normal phase with only some unknown words that
i usualy get by context, i can finally read all my scat and other weird fetishes no one wants to translate, it feels nice.
Maybe in the future, the one thing i am concerned is that my english are also self taught, and i have no actual grammar knowledge, i just
read and write by instinct that comse from too much exposure to the language, i'll probably be worse than Laruffii and people will make fun of me.
>best western trap artist that can draw women too
>no seeder for torrent
>literary waiting 4 days for download
Can anyone help me with this!??
But that will either involve me making of topic threads or working with someone else, i can't do that.
I am sure that if i spend lots of time on something i could do a dicenet work, if i get more confident
with japanese maybe someday i will. If you ever see a badly translated Saotome Mondonosuke, it will probably be me.
does anyone recall an original work that had a boyfriend and a girlfriend having interesting vanilla sex? just some highlights:
he cums on her face then he asks her how it was, then she says did you like it? he says yes, then she says she's happy and likes it too
then they prepare for anal, and he finds out she's already prelude her anus with location, but at first he's grossed out because he thinks it's intestinal fluid
anyone have any ideas of what it was? It would be nice if it wasn't one of the ones taken down
I'd say KanColle girls have more personality than Touhou girls if you just go by in-game stuff, but not by much. Touhou wins out if you take into account all the lore and shit. Touhou also wins for fan-made personalities, possibly because it's been around for much longer.
anyone think this is legit?
You'd think it would be more than 1GB
I'm still here, just need better raw provider.
Well, no bounties and no commission I guess.
And not to mention Jacob keep getting angry when one of my team done translating some works (Basically Jacob already done half work then get overtaken by us we are much much faster than them). So we are stop doing translation for a while.
Don't know why people keep getting angry when we upload new translation just because they are slow.
Well you see... So much hatred.
I don't want to release a shitty translation because of my piss poor japanese and lack of any editing experience. All this is going to do is cause people to shit on the work and prevent any component translators to pick up the series.
New chapter confirmed in Anthurium Vol 17. A few spoiler pictures are out but that's it. We still need to wait for the scans.
>Brony furry admin
>Clop and furry and random shitty cosplay galleries getting bumped up due to said brony furry admin.
I'm just annoyed over seeing that same fucking Kung-Fu Panda porn on the first page every fucking day
Sorry for the confusion. Keep fighting the good fight.
I find it hard to believe Ookamiuo is so unpopular than no one has commissioned to any translator, though.
theres almost 20 untranslated shorts and nobody cares.
a truneet /jp/sie
>KEN drawing a new Ore no Bakunyuu OnaMaid chapter for C86
NUOH MY GOD
I just realised what the guy above was saying, apparently if the artist's name is really short it take in account all
other artis that have part of this name, for exmaple if you search for artist:ken it will also show artist like medaka kenichi
and kentarou, why are shit like that still not fixed and the updates consist of stupid cosmetic changes?
Yes why? i was wondering but we have all kinds of in the process slut taggs like mind break and moral degeneration
but there is no tag for characters that are turbo sluts from start to finish do we?
>R: Does kid finally fuck one of the maids?
>K: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA no.
Pass, literally too old for kiddy blueballing.
There were already some guidelines, it wasn't going to be abused. You can't really get it wrong on works like
So I come back after a week of vacation and it seems like a shitton of stuff got deleted. That's still fine with me since there is still nhentai.
But what happaned with the x-eros and kairakuten stuff?? Not even the secret secret club can view them anymore. Can I assume that they got deleted for sure now?
Does anyone know where I can get that stuff from now? Because nhentai doesn't have shit from kairakuten.
Are you kidding me?
This is stupid. There are some works that have extremely slutty girls in them and that's a really retarded reason to not be able to have a term to search for them. Gyaru usually encompasses some of it, but not all of it, and sluts also don't always equal prostitution. It's almost as though the mods want to make it difficult to find works up your alley.
Are those feminists implied "slut" shouldnt be a fetish?
Are they implied that no one could like sluts? Are they implying that being a slut is a BAD THING?!?!
LAST I CHECKED BEING A SEXUALLY LIBERATED WOMAN WAS WHAT WE WERE WORKING SO HARD TO CREATE BUT I GUESS NOT
99% of the time when a tag fails to be made, it's either poorly defined, rarely used, or the person proposing the tag doesn't actually push for the tag and just leaves after making one or two posts. The slut tag proposal did not fizzle for feminist reasons.
Daily reminder that most people in sadpanda threads don't actually know about what goes on behind the scenes.
Hey guys, I just finished another page. I've been sick with this flu thing so I stopped working for a few days.
I have two questions: 1, are the hearts good? I copy/pasted from the raws and changed the colour, not sure how good they look. 2, is the dialogue order in this confusing? This is my first editing/typesetting job and I don't want to ask around on the e-hentai forums. Not sure where else I could go to ask about hentai.
>It was meant as a derogatory tag
Not necessarily. I don't consider it a derogatory tag, I just would like a tag to make it easier to search for cockhungry girls.
Why did it fizzle?
It can be seen both ways: look for stories with cock-hungry sluts or blacklist vanilla where the girl has more experience than all of Shindo L girls in one of his tank combined. That second part could be seen by some as derogatory.
We will see when the next tag proposal appears.
I actually find the text looking a bit off if it's center-aligned next to a straight edge.
I find that the upper one looks a bit off, since the straight edge is on the right side, but the lower one looks perfectly fine.
I have an entire list that's currently about 260+ titles and that's after careful consideration and choosing only the best of the best.
Some of them are CG sets though.
I think I will curse the fact that I wasn't born Japanese till the day I die.
So much amazing content that I will never be able to fully enjoy...
0.50/0.70$/p for just the script, no editing. 1-1.50$ editing included. And even then, you gotta wonder what type of editing. Ragdoll for example offers editing but you can do it better with a mouse up your ass, I guess it saves you the tedium of typesetting though.
Truefact: 99% of people who say could translate hentai can't do anything when they have to back up their word. Get the jist of it != translate
>i've tried for years
Nobody is that stupid, anon. Even picking up hiragana would help you a lot.
You just need to fucking get to it. Here's a handy guide that may help you. I also personally recommend Obenkyo for android, it's excellent for when you're commuting or taking a dump or whatever.
well that's not that bad i guess
i can use photoshop myself
i reeeeally gotta enjoy it if i want to learn something
there's no point, i've given up
too big of a task for someone who can barely do one thing at once
>>Truefact: 99% of people who say could translate hentai can't do anything when they have to back up their word. Get the jist of it != translate
I disagree. Translating is easier than it seems, because you'll have time to juggle the words over and over. Being able to fluently read text is harder than translating, I'd say.
Ah yes, because installing anime ace or wild words is so difficult.
Editing is the easiest shit ever to do on a competent level. Only absolute sperglords care if you're one pixel out in your centering.
Gaussian Blur, no more than 0.4/0.5%. Then smart sharpen around 1%
Until you find yourself in front of someone who said he was a typesetter and doesn't even know you need to center align text.
Sadpanda threads should be banned from /a/.
For one thing, hentai does NOT EQUAL Anime/Manga discussion. There's an entire fucking board for hentai called /h/. I don't give a fuck if there's no discussions taking place, there's a board for it already. I don't go to this board and shit it up with video game threads, then say "b-but /v/ doesn't discuss vidya so I have the right to shitpost other boards". That's NOT how it works around here. If you insist on having hentai here, then you should have no problem with me posting blog threads, or vidya threads.
Secondly, these threads violate global rule 1.
>Do not upload, post, discuss, request, or link to, anything that violates local or United States law. This will be severely punished and strictly enforced.
Sadpanda hosts illegal copyrighted material, and you guys are linking it here. If you guys insist on having hentai on /a/, you should all be linking Fakku instead. It's a good alternative anyway because they are starting to have more material then Sadpanda and it's not illegal. I don't care if you think sadpanda is better, it should not be allowed on 4chan at all, not even on /h/.
This. I can competently translate porn because it's mostly the same dialogue rehashed over and over. The authors use stock phrases so it's simply a matter of using your stock translation for those phrases, I do maybe 10 lines of original translation in a ~24 page doujin, the rest is just the usual cliche lines.
It's seriously not. If you're working on CGs, you have ultimate freedom. If you're working on manga, you have to fit it in the boxes. Nobody gives a shit if the fucking SFX isn't redrawn.
Sounds neat, but it ALWAYS craps out on me for reasons beyond myself and those who try to help me. I'll stick with adopting a server and Hentaiverse.
As well as getting 4 hath a day thanks to the Gold Star.
It wasn't a baseless assumption. I can't speak for /a/ nipfags who read their own porn but as far as hentai translators well, many suck.
Sometimes you find stock lines, others not really, you will find slangs, dialects, puns and no furigana for kanji. Some people work through it no problems, many fall apart.
Kanji you can just look up by radicals, slangs and dialects are usually covered by good dictionaries, puns are usually some that you can either understand from context or are self-explanatory. What I personally found most difficult were slurred words. Those you can't just type into jisho.org or something. Then again, the slurred words usually come up in situations where the actual words mean fuck all.
This makes me very mad. This attitude of just getting the job done is why groups like Tigoris, CGrascal, and doujin-moe are so bad and have no drive to improve. All that matters is the money.
I hate how fearful taggers of Exhentai are of Netorare, even when the work is more focused Netori than Netorare. For instance: Carn's newest work.
It's clear you're supposed to self-insert as the bad guy, stealing the four eyes, but NO, bitches be crying netorare.
Why waste 50 hours typesetting some fucking porn?
I'm not saying use fucking piss yellow boxes over the original text, I'm saying that if you're redrawing shit for someone to jerk off to, you should really re-evaluate your priorities in life.
Must've done something wrong. This is your original heart: lasso tool, blur, gaussian at 0.5, smart unsharp at 100% and 1% strenght. You can even tweak smart unsharp radius and strenght to make it better.
You are trying to create material for someone to trick his brain into mating with drawings, it's not as easy as you think, if shit editing and
writing distracts the reader all the time it's hard to get immersed.
Sure there are bad translators, but that doesn't mean that a new translator can't be good because she doesn't perfectly grasp the language yet. Just get her a more experienced TL checker and you're actually getting shit done instead of complaining about the lack of translations.
If you're spending 50 hours typesetting, you have no idea what you're doing and should probably find someone to help you out.
And is it really such a strange notion that there are people out there who are passionate about hentai?
I did, that's how I know how to translate the sfx.
But, in that work, the bad guy was the protagonist. You can't even call him a "bad guy", it's more like a villian protagonist of some sorts.
You're just turning your eyes away from what you don't like
Can someone tell me what this is? I always lurk these threads and hear people talk about it, still don't know for sure.
I don't understand actually translating the sfx, sfx is different for every artist and is part of the artist's touch
to the work, what's the point in changing them to things that have nothing to do with them?
For you it's the protagonist because your perspective is warped. I see the first two pages, the first male character I see is a kid groping the older sister, he clearly likes her, and the most reasonable and logical train of thinking is
>He is the mc, he should fuck them sisters
>Does he fuck them? Is it a harem?
>No, a random bastard will bang all sisters
Think of NNN, since you like Carn. It's the exact same thing: you never even have proof teacher liked the girls, but it's netorare because it's what a common reader would acknowledge as who should fuck them all anyway. It doesn't happen, and it gets the tag.
How's this? I'm really sorry for wasting so much time over a heart, I just want it to look good.
Just curious, what is the logic here? It can't take more than 5 minutes to do something like this, and it adds quite a bit of flavor for me.
Even easier: it's both. A masochist will insert in the husband you can see, a sadist in the scumbag.
>If it's inside a balloon, translate it.
>If it's outside, only do it when it's dialogue
It can be "byu" or whatever
Because I like it and I'm used to it. And because I'm quasi-namefagging.
It's pew pew.
Are you still here Joe? I can't help but notice that certain search variables don't work in the Favorites search engine. Simply put, "lolicon" works but not "-lolicon". The minus. Trying to pluck out the non-loli works and put them in another section. Will Tenboro fix that sometime?
The Japanese SFX are weird sounding and the English ones are just corny/comic-bookish. I'm always tempted to do gag translations of them but end up not giving myself additional work.
>A masochist will insert in the husband you can see, a sadist in the scumbag
But COME ON, the scumbag has the Eroge Hero syndrome. What's the difference in this one and a normal cheating one where the husband never even makes an onscreen appearance? Hell if we were to put protagonist, you cane even argue the woman is the protagonist since it's through her thoughts that the story is being conveyed, which again, will not make the story netorare.
It's just insecure kiddos bandwagoning on the tag.
That's what i am talking about, why can't you just type the original japanese onomatopoeia instead of that shit? there is no actual translation
of what the sound the artist wanted to be.
I said it's both, you're like those people who say
>He inserts in the victim
When the work clearly wants you to, it's written and pushed that way.
The ones who do for money are ragdoll, qbtranslations, biribiri, ask ero manga girls if they can hook you up with rinrurin.
I'm upset about them because most of the time there is no good translation, how they are done are part of the art itself, and most of the time the fonts just look generic and ugly.
Wow it's fucking nothing.
That said, I would have personally translated the moans just so that the whole page would look more uniform.
Hey nigger, did you know you can't only search for negatives? Yeah I knew you didn't know, or else we wouldn't be having this conversation you ignorant fuck.
Now stop posting stupid shit that's been discussed countless times.
>will not make the story netorare.
It will make the action netori, thus NTR. This is why when you see this in anime where the hero takes another person's wife/girlfriend/etc, you see live discussion threads go bananas with NTR.
The story is NTR by virtue that someone stole someone from somebody. That's all NTR is. Whether it feels bad or good, NTR doesn't care since there is no Japanese that says NTR should make you feel a certain way.
Even if the protagonist was a woman, an NTR act still occurred.
Thaank you anon, this is what I needed.
>The ones who do for money are ragdoll, qbtranslations, biribiri, ask ero manga girls if they can hook you up with rinrurin.
I'll assume that Google will help me with this.
>Are Japanese otakus this insecure about the virginity of the girl?
I'll put this under spoiler, because now they will disagree, but it still is the truth:
Editing is by far the most tedious task in all of scanlation, and the worst is, it never stops being tedious. You can be the faster editor on earth, as skilled as a mangaka, have hundreds of chapters behind you and every chapter you start is the beginning of a new agony. That's why, many give up on details like moans and sfx because who gives a fuck
You don't need much more than basic Japanese to get the gist of porn. It's mostly the same stock phrases over and over again, you'll only stretch yourself during non-porn scenes.
Cleaning this shitty scan really sucks, it leaves a lot of blurred areas near the gutter, but I still think it's better than something with more censorship.
If you are obsessed with the sfx (which many don't even bother reading), then learn the fucking kana and quit whinging, because there are lots of good reasons against butchering them.
When I try to slowly read through untranslated sadpandas, I find if I try to translate it directly into an english sentence/word, it kills my boner cause of how awkward or weird it sounds. Or there's just no equivalent. Anyone else?
This issue still isn't enough to push me to grinding JP harder though, haha.
Of Course i did some basic grammar, i say use the deck daily on a smaller speed like 20 new words a day and also do your own,
after that it's just reading, i learned english just from exposure and reading/listening so it worked for me in japanese too, sometimes
i can't explain grammatically what's going on, but i know what they mean and what i am reading, same with english.
>I'm gonna pay tens of bucks for one censored issue of a magazine, spend days to rip it, scan it, clean it and upload it so that anonymous on magical pretty panda board will thank me
Chinks are still uploading scans, let them do it. Eventually you will find the random Japanese pirate who will throw a bone at us, that's how we used to live before Comic Han appeared.
>Alright, today I'm definitely gonna start translating shit that's been left high and dry for years!
>pick moderate length manga
>See this isn't too bad, the text is all in the bubbles and boxes--
>Oh, looks like there's a couple lines overlaying the art, no biggy, I think I can find a way to-

>well I wasn't that interested anyway
>tfw learning japanese in school
>tfw it's not enough
when will I be able to work on my own projects
I just want to jerk of to japanese porn without anyone else's help
>the work clearly wants you to, it's written and pushed that way.
This is entirely subjective, but hell at least add a fucking Netori tag or make it the more broad Netoru, some of us actually like that idea and it's not wrong either.
I like it better when translators grow creative with onomatopoeia and their fonts.
They're not all the same, just look at this story.
I see many people cry Netorare, but in my eyes it's the story of a struggling ex boyfriend who fights against the odds to recover what he believes is rightfully his. While he did stole her from another man, he worked for this woman more than the first guy. This is Netori....
But perhaps you're right, in the end perhaps is just me finding light within darkness...
We already have been through this already: you have to determine if the art looks like the show, if it does, you gotta determine who is fucking who because there's fans who want corruption and fans who want canon pairings or happy sex, then you gotta watch out for spergs who want them also to be in-character during happy sex.
When you're done with filtering, you cut from fapping hundreds of people who would have stayed had you picked original.
Kana sometimes helps
>Translator is told to skip moans because editor knows them
>Translator sees sex font, skips automatically
it's not just that
it's that so many good artists are resorting to it just to fill in unnecessary plot
I mean honestly, there's hardly ever any good netorare
90% of the time it's "I have a picture of you on my phone and if you don't suck my dick then I'll spread it around"
That artist is good, have you read pururun seminar? Same artist.
I am learning Japanese now. In 4 months I can understand simple doujins, unless it uses a grammar concept I haven't seen.
And at least with SFX, then it comes down to diminished returns. Doing a SFX contained in a bubble is simple, even if some text spills over. Trying to redraw many giant SFX all over the place takes considerably longer and can even lead to looking worse.
>>I like it better when translators grow creative with onomatopoeia and their fonts.
English doesn't swing that way, and when you start replacing artist's drawing with your own, you're crossing the line. That's just my opinion though, and if you disagree, you're a cunt.
>and can even lead to
You mean 'will lead to'
>We already have been through this already: you have to determine if the art looks like the show, if it does, you gotta determine who is fucking who because there's fans who want corruption and fans who want canon pairings or happy sex, then you gotta watch out for spergs who want them also to be in-character during happy sex.
>When you're done with filtering, you cut from fapping hundreds of people who would have stayed had you picked original.
You're a real fucking idiot. Parodies mean you don't have to waste any time setting up the characters, and come with a strong backstory you can build off of. Original works are mostly vanilla crap, and even at their most extreme can never hope to reach the heights a parody work can. Fans of a series will be happy with whatever material you choose as long as it's vaguely in character.
Caring about alienating people is fucking stupid too, do you want everything to be vanilla shit to reach as broad an audience as possible?
>Are Japanese otakus this insecure about the virginity of the girl?
I mean why, I understand the insecurity of being compared, but it actually hurts women. I know a couple of girls scared of sex because of bad first-time experiences... do they enjoy hurting women, making them bleed down there? Do we?
And I quote:
>Real Life and fantasy are two different things
>In a fantasy world, everything is perfect, and it's filled with love and romance. An utopia.
What kind of man would wish for an utopia where the object of desire of their self-insert was fucked by another man?
I CAN QUOTE TOO
>I love NTR because I find nothing hotter than the thought of being some sweet innocent girl who happens to have a lewd, large breasted body and be in love with a nice young boy only for a hot set of studs to show me what real pleasure is, and utterly destroy me in the process, make me belong to them, make me desperate for them.
>What kind of man would wish for an utopia where the object of desire of their self-insert was fucked by another man?
What kind of a man would wish for an utopia with guro and scat?
Because that his fetish.
You have bullshit and some proxy votes.
Seriously, how can you possibly argue that original crap gives a better fap than parody stuff? Are you seriously suggesting that any random parody work would be better or sell more if the characters were original?
>I mean honestly, there's hardly ever any good netorare
>90% of the time it's "I have a picture of you on my phone and if you don't suck my dick then I'll spread it around"
This. I'm really picky about my NTR and lazy setups like this just kill my interest. The part about NTR that excites me is the betrayal aspect, the woman has to actually be seduced. That's why I like groups like Ver9, they do amazing NTR stories that fully grasp that betrayal aspect and what it means to seduce away somebody's lover. Like this story:
It actually spends time building up the relationship between the guy and his wife before she's seduced away from him. Even though the husband is the one who wanted to be cuckolded in the first place (a setup I normally don't care about) it still hits all the right notes because the wife is left out of the loop and is legitimately seduced away from her husband. It's perfect.
>and if you disagree, you're a cunt.
Ahh, come on, don't be that way, it's just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH with more dynamic fonts. I wasn't even talking about off-bubble hira/katakana
With SFX, it really is mostly just about work and time put it for very little outcome. It's putting an extraordinary amount of effort in for something most people don't even see. For stuff in bubbles, it's mostly about balance and looking completed. Now if these things came completely clean save for the bubbles, maybe doing SFX wouldn't be so bad. You could even make them smaller as to not cover the art.
Those are fine. I'd translate everything that's said or shouted by the characters (except those half-faded haa haa bubbles, fuck spending time on those) and ignore everything that's not (unless it's relevant to the story)
>You could even make them smaller as to not cover the art.
The SFX are a part of the art.
Guys! Guys! I've an idea! What if we crowd-fund the shit we want translated? We find a doujin we all want translated, each one put just some dollars and then we pay a scanlator to translate it.
Containment board, hell I'm not even a woman, I'm raising a very valid point? If the stories we read are all about love, and shit like that why must they, and we, make virginity a matter of importance?
I myself am personally picky with virginity in mango too, don't get me wrong, but I'm questioning weather it's a healthy thing. I mean, can't you see how ridiculous this looks from any angle, even the 1st person?
That's my point, but then don't be surprised if people in happy sex complain. There have been several fiascos in the past about used and damaged goods, don't act like you don't know.
Virginity is easily the single most important aspect to look for in a woman.
Sorry the media has brainwashed you into thinking all women should be sluts. Maybe one day you'll build up enough self-esteem not to settle for one.
Not like it matters, scanlators and commissioners are still in charge of what gets translated. Some prefer commercial stuff more often than parodies, others the opposite.
It can be. But you know you're not here to stare at shiku shiku, gokun, bupo, or kupaa. Besides, many of those SFX in Japanese are just fonts, not even handrawn.
Many commission scanlators already do that, they're called donor projects and they tend to be for doujinshi serials or tanks. Single doujins only cost on the range of ~$1.50-2.00 per page, depending on the amount of work needed, so you're talking much less than $50 for most 24 page doujins.
I don't like parody because I'm into NTR and NTR + parody = absolutely no effort into story. They just assume you know who the OTP is and have them fuck faceless old men/delinquents/that other guy in the show and expect you to get an NTR boner from it.
I'm not saying they should be sluts, but there they also commit mistakes, we all do.
And be realistic, unless you're in highschool you'd have to be a creepy dude in his mid 20's stalking middle schoolers and highschoolers in order to get a virgin IRL, who might turn out be cunt.
You're putting too much stock on something superficial that might be a 1 time mistake.
Because people don't want to continually pay for stuff and all that money adds up after a while? You're talking on the order of thousands of doujinshi alone.
Specifically, is there anything on the top of your TL wishlist?
I look for virginity under precise rules: if it's a guy meeting a random girl or a senpai from college, casual sex with used goods it's fine. If it's the love of his life, osanana or sister or whatever, if she's not virgin I will skip it like I'd skip gangrape.
>It can be. But you know you're not here to stare at shiku shiku, gokun, bupo, or kupaa.
Exactly why it's utterly retarded to start translating them to begin with.
>Besides, many of those SFX in Japanese are just fonts, not even handrawn.
Some are, some aren't. I'm concerned about those that are hand-drawn, which is the majority from what I've seen.
I imagine that for each doujin, there's at least one person who would pay $50 to see it translated, hence my confusion.
The top of my TL wishlist is unfortunately a nukige, specifically ??????2/3 and ???? 2/3. I'm learning Japanese right now to read and subsequently translate these games.
the translator's blogs. I always download what I like, because I always got the idea sadpanda was gonna die. I can still find everything I want in sadpanda, though.
