I caught up with the translation for 7Seeds, I was behind a decent number of chapters but read them all last night. I'm really glad it looks like the mangaka is going to give more development to some of the background characters that aren't in the main groups.

Monster girl threads were trash, I'm glad they're gone.

in case you didn't know, this isn't a single manga series but entire subtext of a board shoved into a thread because individual threads other than more popular manga cannot possibly survive.

You are forgetting why general threads were frowned upon on first place and are blinding just hating the fact there exists a discussion thread! There are shittons of different manga titles out there that would otherwise never survive on /a/ board.

>>116037093
I put it off for a long time, I tried to read it after finishing Basara and couldn't get into it because the main characters were so awkward. But I guess it's supposed to be like that because over the course of the series they all change a lot. None of it is forced either, it's a matter of them realizing how they need to adapt to the new world and bonding with each people they'd never interact with otherwise. It's a good series if you really want to root for the characters and hope they accomplish what they need to do.

That's pretty much how I feel. "Oh I have nothing to read" then I'll look around a little, add 5 things to my backlog, and at least 1-2 of them I end up really enjoying. 1-2 more I'll end up liking enough to finish. Then I usually drop 1.

Making my way through Jojo, currently finishing Part 5.
To be honest I don't like it nearly as much as Part 4, the characters aren't nearly as interesting and the pacing is too fight-of-the-week. Cool stand ideas though, it's kind of like Stardust Crusaders done better.
The scans don't help much.

I did it for you faggots, because I enjoyed that story so much that I wanted to share it immediately after I've come to know there were raws for World Apartment Horror.
I always forget that there's still the rest to translate. What story would you prefer to read next?

Hepatica, aka Misu Misou

>>116063664
Kaiji. I've only seen the anime but even the ending of the shitty Bog arc fills you with satisfaction.
>>
>>116063813
I asked because even if I translate one story it might pass a long time until I translate another one so if you guys have any priority let me know.

I'll look through the volume, then, and let you know in a few minutes.

It's seems /a/ has came to a general consensus and enjoys his work.

>>116063925

If I had to choose, then the titular World Apartment Horror (chapter 1), but that's also the longest. Otherwise, the story with the tiger (chapter 3?).

A lot of characters are on or heading to a single island that had a group of scientists living their in the past, and iirc it also had the town the twin girls were from.

Also, not manga but some anon yesterday suggested a korean reality TV show called the Genius and its basically Kaiji but in reality tv form and with 12 protagonists instead of 1. I kid you not, the very first episode has the exact same rock,paper,scissors game that was in Kaiji. Give it a try.

I tried to find it in case someone could translate it from Italian, but couldn't find any scans of original manga. I guess in reality you can find them anywhere in Italy, so no one bothered to scan it.

Finished second to last nook of Blade of the Immortal. I know how the whole thign ends, but considering that one of the themes is that 'Revenge is Pointless' would it be more appropriate ifAnostu kills Rin? Instead of letting her stab him, he disarms her and insta kills her before getting finished off my Manji. I think this would drive home the point that revenge is destructive and pointless. Why Anostu did set his men loose to rape Rin's mother, she and Manji finished off the ones who actually did it and thus could have turned away

I think Crows comes close to it, its way more serious than it is funny, it has very few comedic moments. Just my opinion but I wouldn't even advise them, or at least I ended Crows with a bittersweet taste exactly because of that, seeing a bunch of 15 years old in overly dramatic situations and being all serious and shit its just too stupid and annoying, just doesn't feel realistic. Would love to read one that can be serious without being too ridiculous tho, can imagine might be difficult to achieve tho.

You mean before another scanlator came along and picked it up or rather, didn't?

It's easily several thousand days. Some probably border a decade. There's probably some that go even further, but that kind of stuff has been lost.
>>

Are there manga awards? I imagine there are but never see them being mentioned or being that much of a big deal, what would be the most prestigious award a manga could get?
>>
>>116084083

>Are there manga awards?

Are you fucking serious? There's a tag on MU just for that.
>>
>>116084083
There are manga awards, but I don't trust them at all. Bleach and Fairy Tail are award-winning works.
>>
>>116084276
In the shonen category. The overall winner is usually much more noteworthy. The general winner that year was Medical Dragon, which I at least wouldn't write off.
>>
>>116084500
Also, when something has been running for a short period of time, you don't really have as much grounds to call it shit. Bleach was only 3 years old at that point.
>>
>>116084215
Yeah thats why I said that I imagined so, too bad you don't know what are the most notorious or popular ones so you could've told me and we could've continued this conversation, instead of getting jumpy over something so insignificant. Also, I don't use MU to look for stuff to read, at least not yet.

>>116084276
Yeah I can imagine a bunch of arguably shitty manga getting awards and shit and I doubt I'd trust them but still kinda curious about them.
>>
>>116084669
It's usually just the most popular long running shounenshit getting an award now and again, otherwise, it's fairly reasonable.
>>
>>116084669

Sorry, but there are literally dozens of prestigious awards. Tezuka Award, etc. Just Google "manga awards."
>>
>>116084669
>too bad you don't know what are the most notorious or popular ones so you could've told me and we could've continued this conversation, instead of getting jumpy over something so insignificant
Sounds more like you're just using that as an excuse for your inability to use google.

There's no conversation to continue, really. You asked a stupid question.

Taiyou no ie is probably the only one I really enjoy, but even then, I still wouldn't put it that high.

Sanzoku Diary looks interesting. Too bad no one ever does many things like it.

>>116085618

I grabbed the raws for Sanzoku a while ago, because I liked the cover and the description. I knew nothing about it, so seeing it get nominated for an award also has me interested.

>>116036337
>Prison School
Anyone who likes Prison School should check out Me and the Devil Blues by the same author. It's completely different subject matter but shares some of the same intensity and has amazing artwork.

>>116085912

And yet still, no one has stepped up to scanlate the continuation. 2 new chapters are already out. Suffering.

I'm surprised that no one has picked up his debut work, Agonashi Gen to Ore Monogatari. Almost as surprised as I am over how his art turned from this into what it is now. I guess that speed scanners only want to do what's new and popular, just like fansubbers.

Ika is easy to translate, though. This looks a little more difficult, as is the case with a lot of comedy manga.

What happened to Again!! ? Its from the same author, right? Was it dropped by the scanlators?

It's basically a hunting/living off the land manga. Each chapter focuses on one of the game he hunts. You would have to find someone that is more interested in those things to translate. It's not bad, but it's very outdoors-man, so that is a hurdle to finding someone who would like it enough to TL.

Hah, so it wasn't just strictly host problems:

>Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request

>This news post is a bit late, but that's because we were trying to investigate and obtain responses from all the parties involved.

>Our recent downtime last week was a result of two DMCA requests. It was from an intermediary on behalf of two different companies. Unfortunately, our host did not notify us and instead disabled our IP address immediately. The most recent requests were due to displaying copyrighted cover art. As some of you have noticed, we have removed the images from some respective series pages (hopefully temporarily). We are currently in the process of looking for another host. It is unacceptable to cause severe downtime without forwarding the requests to us and allowing us to respond. It is likewise poor form by the intermediary to use such tactics without attempting to contact us directly.

>Thank you, MU Staff

Attacking cover art? Seems to be blatantly attacking fair use.
>>
>>116095795

And to think, some faggots were claiming that we shouldn't have to panic about MU going down. DMCA over cover art? Fucking pathetic. They're chipping away at MU with whatever they can get away with to make it further DMCAs easier. Someone really should make a replacement.
>>
What the fuck happened to that site that should have replaced MT? Is the project dead?
The ftp is good and all but a site would be better. And why didn't those faggots release the torrent with all the MT manga already?
>>
>>116095895

>site would be better

Agreed, Woxxy is involved in a replacement but that's probably vaporware

>no torrent

Who the fuck knows, they probably gave up because they think the FTP will last forever (MT all over again someday). FTP admin can't make torrents, either, because his server isn't large enough and bandwidth would probably be expensive.
>>
>>116095863
The reason MU 'works' is because its centralized though. The one thing it has to do is inter-op with it.

>>116095895
Absolutely no idea. I haven't tried visiting #MTarchival in a while, so you could always try asking. The FTP is just as liable to be removed and updates aren't really coming from users, let alone the people working on them.

Jiro Taniguchi will publish a new manga, Les Gardiens du Louvre. Actually I think it's already been published on magazine in Japan. I couldn't find an a link in English, if you want it in French or Italian just ask, there are more pictures and info.

The first volume should come out in these days in Italy, if I remember correctly.

Where can I find volume-length doujinshi?

I wonder if anyone is going to scan that tour of Venice he made as a travel book.

Ever since I fixed my old 7 inch tablet I've been reading non stop.

Is there some kind of OCR application for android? Kind of like KanjiTomo?
>>
>>116101142
Problem is that it's only sold in Luis Vuitton boutiques. Maybe only in the Venetian one (although I don't think so).
It doesn't even cost so much, should be around 40, 45 euro.

Here you can see it.

Thanks based Ankama for that.

Thanks based IMHO for Bambi (even if I'd love me some reprints)

Thanks based Sakka for Wet Moon.

France is a nice place.

I tried to read 7seeds but I can't get past the first few chapters. Does it get better later on?

I saw that too when I searched for scans.
Something made by a fat lesbian or something, but don't worry, Kaneko's one is great.

would be nice to check out how deathco is.

>>116102330
What is it about? Is it a noir? A hard boiled?
>>
>>116102813
It's like a David Lynch movie, but in manga.

A noir with some fantastic elements etc. Difficult to say just a few things about it, I hope it'll get an english release or even scans for you.

Who is your favourite manga artist?
>>
>>116103028
The setting, the use of the shadows and lights and of the angles immediately gave away that it's a noir. Eh, I should have studied French in high school, instead of Latin and Greek.
>>
>>116103170
I don't have one, I love the works, not the makers.

I'm interested in the italian pictures, if you're still here.

Thank you very much.

What's the worst manga you've ever read? Either completed or dropped is fine.
>>
>>116104559
Probably some shonenshit that got axed after 20 chapters. SWOT really stands out to me as being especially shitty.
>>
>>116104559
Hanaukyo Maid Tai is pretty high up there.
>>
>>116104805
I unironically enjoyed SWOT.
>>
>>116104805
I'd say a long running bad series is worse than a short, axed one.

Sakuranbo Syndrome should have been completely scanlated fucking years ago. What happened?

does anyone know where I can download the rest of kurosagi corpse delivery service? I cannot afford to buy it at this moment...

What's the best manga ending you've ever read, /a/?

>>116107834
I'd say Onani Master Kurosawa and Narutaru are my two favorite manga endings, for two completely different reasons.

Why is this not scanlated?
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=11563
Pirates and tits from the guy of Dragon Head.
>>
>>116095795
Holy fuck over cover art? Thats fucking ridiculous.
That explains few of the manga I saw that said "cover art has been removed". I was wondering why.
>>
Did Killing Bites got picked up or it'll just rot away?
>>
>>116114439

lack of jp raws, probably? i think people are a little more interested in tokyo kaido and chisakobee. Those series would also be a smaller commitment (tho chisako is ongoing still)
>>
>>116080604
No idea but the oldest I've found was Sci-Fi Harry's translation at 8 years. I also had to use the internet archive to find the files and save them.
>>
>>116114439
>the guy of Dragon Head
I have a feeling that I lost an ebay auction for that manga to someone else from /a/

Doesn't seem like those are getting scanlated either. That manga is a fucking ecchi adventure with pirates and treasure hunting, what's not to like? We need those damn raws.
Chisakobee isn't even written by Mochizuki.
>>116118584
Why?
>>
>>116118692

Yes... it's not written by him because it's a modern adaptation of an older novel.

Ed from Vertical said that Tokyo Kaido was getting worked on, but they haven't officially announced anything, so I don't know what exactly he meant by working on it.

As for the plot summary you gave, it doesn't sound that interesting compared to some of his other stuff?
>>
>>116118692
There was a time when it was discussed a bit here after it was posted in the one page threads. I tried to buy it after downloading a couple volumes but someone outbid me while I was at work.
>>
>>116118887
>it doesn't sound that interesting compared to some of his other stuff
To me it's a lot more interesting.
>>116118991
If you like Dragon Head you should read Heart of Darkness and watch Apocalypse Now.
>>
>>116103170

I have quite a few.
>>
>>116118887
I forgot.
>Vertical
Not everyone is american.
>I don't know what exactly he meant by working on it
Probably referring to the fact that they were sucking the Japanese publisher for the license.

Damn, I love Dragon Head. I'm buying the new Italian edition.
>>
>>116119741

Yes, obviously not everyone is American, but if there's an English publication, then normally people would buy that, and most groups would avoid it because it's licensed.

Vertical's parent company is Kodansha. There isn't really too much sucking needed if your parent company already has the license.
>>
>>116119928
Oh, it doesn't work like that here, local publishers make deals with multiple Japanese publishers. There's loyalization (with both publishers and authors) but that's different.
>>
>>116097951
That's going to be here after YKK's English release.

Come on, how can you not like pirates, treasures and adventure?

I like the art style.

That's either a big dude or a tiny pirate ship.

I liked Samehada-Otoko to Momojiri-Onna the most out of the stuff I've read from him.

Must be the huge time span if you're been reading it that way, because it's not hard to follow.

Neither of those are close to dead, you bastard.
Go read something that's been dead for 5 years

Chinese raws though.

Accessing via FTP is fine. I don't know what's wrong with the web interface.
