What is it that you might be working on at this time?

Whatever it is, I seriously hope you're not using lowercase in your speech balloons, unless there's some handwriting involved.

You should encourage people who do this to stop, because you may not get complaints from readers who don't know better, but when you see new guys trying their hand at typesetting and they go all lowercase, that's when it becomes a problem, because they think that shit is the norm.

You see lowercase everywhere (let alone anywhere) in your manga tanks? No, so you won't use it either.

Yes, I was clearly talking to japanese people on 4chan, it's not like I was talking to western people buying translated manga books.
>>
>>121140408
Most scanlators here only have nip tanks so yes, you're talking to the wrong people.

Im currently rescanlating World Trigger and it's pretty hard without a redrawer, everything else is working smoothly. Yes, WT. I'm a faggit.

To oppose popularity?

What is this, a joke or just retarded?

>implying あぁ アァ やゃ オォ イィ ウゥ

Anyway, if don't use lower case fonts than you're an idiot because titles, names and other things are less distinguishable without them.

All caps fonts are too similar to western comics. And as we all know, /co/ is shit.

>>121140957
That's not upper/lower case though.

Subscript is not lowercase, anon. The small kana forms are literally never used as their own characters.

No, I'm making an appeal to the right thing to do. You use lowercase most of the time, unless you want to convey some murmuring or handwriting? Great, you're wrong. Someone starts using it because he saw you doing it? You taught someone else to be wrong. You start a trend? It's a trend in being wrong.

It's fine with me, not when someone submits me an application and I have to tell him

>Looks awesome. Now do it all over again with uppercase fonts.
>But that guy was using—
>That guy is a fag.

Worst of all, they're not even good lowercase fonts, fonts ripped from comicraft or blambot, they're shit picked from dafonts. At least pick fucking wild words lower.

>>121140957

Some instances can use lowercase, but the main dialogue font should always be all-uppercase. If you think it looks like comic shit, don't use comics that look too comic-like. It's pretty straightforward.

It's shit.

>>121141399

I just dropped a name at random, use whatever you want as long as it's not lowercase.

Yes, you are.

You'd know you were wrong if you were a real Japanese person.

>>121141369
And now you're opting for for glaring consistencies? What is wrong with you?
No, being all upper case is what makes it like comic shit. And the main dialog should always be consistent. You wouldn't use another font just address a person with a title, or specify a group.

The only time you change font mid bubble is when the original itself does the same.

Sure thing dude.

You just don't know what you're talking about, anon. If those aren't lower case then why are they smaller?

Checkmate.

Much better.

Either way, it looks like shit. Too many words.

Most likely a fan retype for some fucked up reason. They used an awful font and violated text spacing and punctuation rules, so.

>>121141840

I would if I could.

>>121141883

Guess I'll see about replacing those versions, then, if they're available in similar quality. x700px is not worth it.

Why don't you tell me?

>Someone starts using it because he saw you doing it? You taught someone else to be wrong. You start a trend? It's a trend in being wrong.

It doesn't matter how many do it, they all learned from the wrong place or are parroting the wrong person.

I wonder when it became cool to shit on anime ace, wild words, comic books using bolditalic words at random but cool to use lowercase out the ass.
