What makes Batoto so highly used and recommended among /a/? Every time someone links a chapter or a page is saved, batoto is linked or seen in the file name. So far the only difference I can see between this and other sites (ie, mangafox/reader/trader/whatever) is that Batoto has multiple languages available and nothing licensed overseas, which is pretty neat. But I feel like there's more to it.

Help me understand this hivemind.

The reason I like Batoto is because they allow me to fix uploads. Let's say I upload a chapter of Dumbpire and like a bwaka, I include a duplicate page. I can go in, delete the chapter, and re-upload it. Sites like Mangahere use bots to scour sites like Batoto and grab the first thing they see. Very rarely do they go back and get corrected chapters.

If you like those sites, that's fine, but realize you are often getting an inferior product.

Or! Or, it couldn't be there at all. Then it would literally be unnoticable.

>I never pay attention to scanlator drama anyway, so this doesn't really matter at all.
It doesn't have anything to do with drama, but at least give a due mention to the guys that put in the effort and scanlated that shit for you. I'm not telling you to donate to them, worship them or defend them in retarded drama(I also don't follow that shit), but at least give them that little bit of credit they deserve.
>>
It's annoying that it isn't optimized for mobile yet, and their filesizes are huge and load slowly on data. That and there isn't a counter with the total number of pages in a chapter which is a huge pet peeve as that is something I like to check before I start reading any given chapter.

All of these reasons combined are why I use Mangafox instead, but otherwise Batoto is my go-to place for saving pages to save, crop, and post.

I would use Batoto, as I agree with the procedure of giving credit, as well as the quality is overall a lot better, but I use kissmanga due to the function of having all the pages on the same screen and scrolling to read. It's just easier for me.

I wasn't around when madokami became a thing and I was always too lazy to look into getting the entrance information. I'm also too lazy to search the archive and figure out how to rip mangabox stuff. When it comes to this sort of thing, the only thing I know how to do is rip from viz.

What?! No. Page with less quality/size is still the same page. CR can send letters of happiness regardless of quality or even having pages from manga at all (see baka-updates failure) at any giving moment, so it can't be reason if you not a retard.

Mangafox's doesn't obstruct, but they do compress all to shit and the watermark at the bottom makes me want to puke if I ever read it.

I actually do that if the art is pretty enough. Why rush? That's one of the pluses of manga.

As a scanlator I upload my work to /a/ and as far as I'm concerned that's it my work is done. If someone wants to upload it to ex or batoto that's fine. What pisses me off is when it's uploaded to fucking mangafox or mangapanda because of fucking eye cancer quality and watermarks, why did I bother to clean it if it's just going to have that done to it? Also they make a profit from it, the group don't see any money from it and neither to do the mangaka in Japan. They're a businesses. Scanlation should be fans doing it for other fans, for free.
>>
>>121728381
Why are you defending what is objectively a shitty practice? There's literally no excuse for it. I'm convinced you're just trolling because your only argument is "Well I can just ignore it!" which is tacitly admitting it's a shitty thing to do.

And what's more, you don't even have to put up with it because sites like Batoto and Kissmanga exist, that host manga watermark free, and they are no more difficult to access than mangapanda or mangafox or any other shitty hosting site that watermarks.

So basicall you're just choosing to have low res, watermarked shit for no reason. Absolutely no reason.

All this batoto butthurt really just stems from the fact that everyone knows their precious little site will never be as good as onemanga was.

Yes it is. That's the first thing I have to teach English Only People who are learning Japanese: syllables all have more or less equal weight. Americans tend to emphasize the first syllable, and brits tend to want to emphasize the second. In Japanese, default pronunciation is putting equal stress on every part of the word until you better understand the language.

No you won't, you mangafox shitter. They shit on you because you go to shitty sites like mangafox or mangapanda that watermark and reduce the image quality to garbage.

Nobody would give a shit if you went to kissmanga instead of batoto, or if you downloaded it from madokami, as long as the image is properly sized and clean.

Seriously this isn't hard to figure out. It's not about where the image came from, it's about the quality of the image. If mangafox didn't resize and turn pages into grainy shit, people wouldn't even care that they put their watermark below it.
>>
OP here. Thanks for the constructive replies that did exist, I was honestly just curious. I'm a casual manga reader who only reads One Pissu trying to branch out into more series, and Potato's library is pretty decent. The only reason I was drawn to it in the first place was because of Jojo's colored adventures.

>>
>>121728546
The only reason I don't like kissmanga as much as batoto is that it's not as friendly with webcomic reader. Seems to be something about the URL or whatever, I don't know. At any rate, it makes jumping to completely different pages impossible sometimes.

Also, one thing I dislike about batoto is that if I do feel like turning ads on on their site, they have an ad that will cover two-page spreads if I'm using webcomic reader which twists my nipples.

>>121728644
It's not a tonal language, but pretending they don't emphasize certain syllables is simply incorrect. If you're speaking in the simplest sense of the language, in its basic rules, you might be right. However, in practice, a native speaker definitely puts emphasis on certain words if they're speaking in certain dialects. It's natural for this to happen in any language. Maybe you shouldn't be teaching Japanese.
>>
>>121728644
I literally took 4 years of Japanese from actual Japanese language instructors at a college, who were being paid to do it.

Japanese is one of the hardest languages to learn period, but one thing about it is that emphasis is all over the place. it's different for every word. It doesn't have a hard and fast rule. Nearly all the words have a correct place for emphasis, and there's no logic to it.
>>
>>121728721
Exactly my point here. This guy doesn't get it. People aren't trying to have discussions about quality here. They're trying to discuss content. And obsessive fools like this can't let it go no matter what.

It's completely true.

>>121728763
>However, in practice, a native speaker definitely puts emphasis on certain words
That's not what I'm talking about, I'm talking about enunciation, the pattern of stress on syllables that makes a dialect unique. In Japanese, all syllables are stressed by default. You gradually learn where to make exceptions for this as your vocabulary expands.

>>121728765
>I literally took 4 years of Japanese from actual Japanese language instructors at a college
So did I, and I studied abroad in Japan, and now I tarnslate manga and doujin in my spare time while tutoring kids over the internet.

If you're stupid and insist you know more than people who speak the language, then yeah. Listen when I say this: if you apply your retard American enunciation patterns to Japanese, you're gonna sound like a retard. You will sound very stilted if you use the default even-stress pattern, but you will at least be intelligible.

>>
>>121729149
It's not free of it, but there's a lot less since the typical animefag doesn't put up with it nearly as much.

And it all stems from the fact that there are usually more options when it comes to fansubbing. It means that if one of them starts acting like retards, they can just switch.

Scanlators somehow forced the "rule" that only one group is allowed to work on a series ever, so it's very rarely that you can switch to another group doing releases. So it just leads to everyone sucking them off, even when they start being faggots. See: PROzess.
>>

>It's the exact same shit.
You're as bad as streamfags, fuck off.
>>
>>121729283
>Scanlators somehow forced the "rule" that only one group is allowed to work on a series ever
Must be have something to do with sheer manga numbers that wouldn't be scanlated if two or more groups did work at the same titles.
>>
>>121729283
There's actually some good sense in that "rule". Manga is much harder to get out in different languages in a way that looks good. Rather than spreading forces, having people group up and focus down on a series is a much better idea. Furthermore, rather than taking another group's series, you're better off working on a series that has no scanlators. Problems only arise when a scanlator gets fed up (likely, since scanlation is stressful and mostly thankless) or when a group is fucking hellishly slow despite others being able to get scans out faster.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's better than having 10 groups for each wsj series.
There's already a huge amount of manga that will never be translated as is. This isn't anime where everything will get subs no matter how shitty it is.
> everyone sucking them off, even when they start being faggots. See: PROzess.

And this is exactly why mangafags are shit.
You might get slightly more releases out of it, but it also creates an environment where they don't have to worry about quality at all, because everyone will just be forced to read whatever they can get and thank them for it.

>>121729705

You don't have to read anything, no one is standing next to you forcing you to read things. If you think it's shit drop it. If other people also think that it's shit and if they care about it enough they will pick it up.
It's not like the magical dibs rule is gonna keep someone from taking over a project that someone is doing poorly.

Am I the only one that uses Mangahere to look up latest releases since it's the most streamlined and THEN go to Batato to actually read it?

Batato has the best quality, but I've always found Mangahere to have the most appealing place to look up recent releases.

I'll give you an example, animexis hasn't dropped Teppu, they're extremely slow and the only reason that they're not a gajillion chapters behind is because the manga was on hiatus. Do you really think that anyone would give a flying fuck if anyone else picked it up?

>>121730358

Animexis is at the very least 2 chapters behind. There are raws for 30 out.
And I can guarantee you if someone did pick up those 2 chapters, they would throw a bitchfit about it.
And all their fans would still suck their dick, regardless if the people who did them were shit or not.

Considering that there are plenty of people in shitting on online reading as a whole, yes, it's pretty arbitrary.

Mostly for the reasons you said. Unlike with video, there is absolutely no difference in quality between downloading static images and viewing them online.

For anyone that has actually half-decent internet instead of a third-world shithole one, there's not going to be any significant difference in convenience between downloading a chapter and viewing it online.

Yeah, MangaFox used to give credit to scanlators. It's business model of a dozen copies of itself has been a huge turnoff. It really lost the PR wars.

Scanlators haven't been left behind. All the major ones have their own reader sites, or link to Batoto.

There is. For example, with decent internet speed it's faster to download whole chapter and search for some page by just listing pages. There's many cases like this when downloading is preferable.

desktop readers give you much more options to control your reading experience.

And even with 1st world internet, it's way faster to just download the chapter.

With my 3rd world internet i download an average manga chapter in 10 seconds. No manga reader tops that.

Why would you need any of that? Vertical reading is the easiest way to read a series.

Surely, this is bait.

Fucking hell. Is this the age of memes? I never asked for this. The normalfaggotry that has entered this website, or spread from it, is absolutely fucking disgusting. Every day I browse a bit on 4chan, I seriously consider just leaving and never coming back. No, it was never this bad. No, this isn't the same thing I said a few years ago. Things genuinely changed this past half decade, and not for the better, especially after moot left. The quality of posts has always been declining, and I'm nearing my tolerable limit on how low it can get. At least there are some newfags who can learn and not be cancerous, but the large amount who can't is really a shame. Goodbye /a/, I'll see you tomorrow. I'll keep searching for threads I can go in without encountering a large population of terrible people.

Why? Do you keep a piece of paper to rub so you can pretend you're turning pages?

Any tabletfags here? I'm still using Mango as my reader. Is B+ better?
>>
>>121733498
bye. you're not a loss.

>>121727539
Kissmanga is better than both, bless their little Triad/Yakuza hearts.

>Batoto helps scanlators
Exactly how? It's full of bitching scanlators.

What the fuck is wrong with you newfags?

>inb4 i am retard and don't know how to access

>>121727539
>both of them censor manga
Why is everything so fucking retarded.
How can you justify this moralfag shit.
>>
>>121733997
Unless the scanlators put out obnoxiously large pages, that's never an issue. I would think horizontal reading would be worse for that anyway because the images won't fully fit on the screen without having to move them around or scale them.

You don't know that. Perhaps he was someone who was actually making constructive posts adding to the discussion, while some side conversation about off-topic shitposting was happening, and he became annoyed. On the other hand, judging from your post, you probably would have been the exact opposite of a loss. And yes, I am making the assumption here that simply because you were lazy on language, that you also have other posts that are just as bad in other ways.

Now, I'll stop, and hopefully this off-topic shit can die too.

Madokami is pretty cool.

mangatraders is also back.

Hi samefag. Did I hurt your feewings?

>>121734189
>mangatraders is also back.
No it isn't. It's just a mangasee clone trying to cash in on the name.

>>121733851
>Is B+ better?
I love the new Pager reading type with vertical scroll

Strange thread. Last I checked, everyone here hated Batoto because of how arbitrarily they are in choosing what series to host or not.
