Our raw provider is fine, please don't worry
Because of concerns about being arrested, in this period of time we won't be buying the raws as early as before, so please be prepared to only have the translations on Monday to Thursday. We don't have the right to let our raw provider to be arrested and deported for this trivial matter so please understand this
情報師(the guy that the raw providers send the scans to) will further explain the situation on this matter (see >>133560252 >>133560685)
And about the text spoilers flying around everywhere, take it with a grain of salt.
Looks like many mangas and not just Tokyo Ghoula are going to be affected
Up until tonight
With the last statement from various scanlation websites we can be sure that the Saturday raws are not going to be available.
(List of scanlation and spoiler websites)
Because of the highly publicized arrest of the One Piece raw transporter
We didn't let our raw provider go to the store to attempt to buy the raws.
Since there might be police there and various risks involved
Some people might ask
The raw provider was for One Pice
Why would other magazines such as YJ be affected
If you want to know more about that you can go search up more info from various news broadcasts
The raw transporter that was arrested this time
Was the fastest transporter for the scanlation scene
So once he was caught
Nobody could buy the magazines they wanted on Saturday (even next week's JUMP might be delayed)
About the Chinese people that were arrested
One of them was the raw provider for Imperial Scans and most English scanlators
And was also our raw provider for near 100 chapters from TG to TG:re
In the past you might have figured it out, that we didn't have raws or started scanlating at the same time, because our raw provider was the same person
He was also the raw provider for many Chinese scanlation groups
So this is quite a serious business
Lastly we don't know when we will be able to get the raws for chapter 53
The only thing we can be sure is that the official chapter won't delay more than Friday.
>One of them was the raw provider for Imperial Scans and most English scanlators
>And was also our raw provider for near 100 chapters from TG to TG:re
Didn't ISIS once say they couldn't use chink scans because of bad quality and that's way they took so long?
I can't believe that we finally have proof that it's all connected, though. It's like the underground scanlator cartel.
I guess this means that if you were to work your way up the scene you'd be able to get any RAW you wanted to get your hands on.
I guess it's also confirmed that the scanlator who posted the RAWs on the scanlation threads had access to those RAWs and the Baidu secret club isn't going to help at all in terms of spoilers.
Speaking of Amon, it's weird that Hinami doesn't seem to have been grilled and talked about Takizawa and him. On the whole, there has been dearth of CCG talk about the new one eyed ghoul who massacred their ranks.
haise hasnt asked about him and Hinami doesn't give fuck about aogiri or takizawa even though he's the only sucessful half ghoul;I don't think she cares of floppies so she probably doesn't know much about them
anyways,don't bump the thread
>We don't have the right to let our raw provider be deported
So their raw provider is a Chinese national living in Japan with access to the Jump magazine before publication date.
Not if they tighten security.
It means that everything YJ and in whatever magazine One Piece was in is confirmed dead spoiler-wise and it could also mean that these scanlators would potentially have trouble getting RAWs.
Oh well. I'm cool with it. I'm sure we can find other things to do while we wait a little longer.
Maybe the reason that TH is so slow is because they don't have any scene connections and have to buy shit.
I know that scanlation groups like Fallen Syndicate it seemed could never pick up series due to money woes, but sites like IS seemed to always be short of scanlators rather than cash. This fits perfectly into the narrative as well as the database that the scanlators who were in the scene keep talking about on the scanlation threads. As well as the mystical HQ RAWs which never seemed to be available anywhere, but that the scanlators seemed to always have a copy of.
I can't imagine them getting any money out of it unless it was small ad revenue (well tons of adblockers exist) although I guess since MP was targetted at normies they probably got more.
>inb4 a proportion of all scanlator donations and adrevenue goes into shady bribes
Of course it's shady. It wouldn't work any other way.
The raw providers bribe their secret connections at the stores to get the chapter almost a week earlier and then they sell it to the scanlation groups.
I don't read TG but I'm interested in this drama. Does anyone know more details? Was a Chinese man really stealing raws before they were even printed? That explains why some manga get Chinese scanlations before the magazine is even out in Japan. I always thought those were subscribers getting their copies early but it was strange they got them ONE WEEK early, but I never put much thought into it. So what was happening was that they were literally stealing the prints? That's insane, even for the Chinese. Anyone who knows details, please share. I love scanlation conspiracy drama.
You can read all about it on Baidu, last thread and this random translator on tumblr who decided to go face first into the Tokyo Ghoul scanlation rumour mill: http://drowning-in-theories.tumblr.com/
Also hang out on the scanlation threads and you'll see people post RAWs. Which sometimes quite suspiciously aren't easily sourced and they always talk about this private database (I've heard this mentioned a few times, last time someone told me it was from Madokami but I have reason to believe there are multiple 'secret databases' floating around.)
Also this early spoilers thing isn't just happening to TG but other threads too. Always we get the spoilers often photo spoilers ahead of time, sometimes public RAWs. I know that on one anime I was watching someone managed to get the RAWs in low quality but from where? They never shared the source.
Oh and the news article too about the arrest. Also one anon was always talking about how IS always coincided with Baidu release and told us a few times that they had the same source.
Reminds me of those guys who leaked music to What.cd and places like that because they worked at a record store and could do some stuff like that or the guy who posed as a critic to get access to prereleases. Also game ROM leaks and TV leaks.
There was this private tracker or some place regarding movie leaks that I heard about on /g/ where users in the scene and the industry shared prereleases with each other and discarded film reels but they exchanged names and checked up on people by asking their social media and friends lists and contacting their connections to establish whether or not people were in the industry. So I guess being 'in the scene' holds a lot of benefits and danger too.
It is kinda pointless cause we will still have the raw like 4 days later. Just wait for four more days for cheap but legal scan, counting from Sunday.
Now we get to taste what Japanese feel like. It is fair though.
Thanks for the link, I'll be diving into that one next. I was going through the other threads with the translated posts since I can't read Chinese.
I do hang out in the scanlation threads but I'm positive those raws you're talking about were actually scanned by an /a/non
who was uploading them to mado and only posted the filename in the threads to let us know.I don't think any other secret database was mentioned recently.
I have seen spoilers for other manga I read being posted one week before the chapter is even out in Japan. No raws though, just the Chinese scanlation. I always thought it was weird for someone to receive the copy so early but now everything makes sense. Photo spoilers 1-3 days before the release is normal if you have a subscription, I think. They ship the magazines a few days earlier to make sure you get it on time so it's not unusual for people to receive the magazine a day or two before it's for sale.
>the news article about the arrest
Is there a version you'd recommend? I found multiple results but I'd like to track down the first or most detailed version of it.
Can't we just ask Ishida for the raws? He seems to know about the west a bit more better than the average nip person does. It's quite possible he's cool with having his manga pirated by the westerners.
Well that set of RAWs was a bit late (IS was late that time) so I believe that it could be the case. I've never been on a scanlation team for long because the only one I joined stopped communicating like a week later. Dunno what version but there was a lot of consternation in the two threads after that happened on /a/.
He doesn't like it. He once told a westerner fan that they should not upload the spoiler online before official release day because Japanese fans are important to him.
No mangaka likes to see their manga being pirated, you stupid fuck.
You are all impatient fucks. Just wait till Wednesday and many nips will scan their magazine voluntary for you, free of charge and absolutely legal.
Then wait another week for the next chapter, which is the normal routine similar to our previous one. We get chapter every week, no later than Japanese people.
No content creator likes seeing their work uploaded for free. The only people who say something to the contrary are people who are rich enough that they can afford it, for example Gaiman.
I'm pretty sure he didn't like it when people started spamming him on twitter about the end of tokyo ghoul a full week before the relevant chapter was out.
But he did probably also feel good about it.
Yes. I have a twitter and Japanese people woke up at 5am in the morning to buy Young Jump. They are that fast. Some regions of Japan sell the magazine earlier than 2-3 hours and we can get the full raw or lots of spoiler text within the day.
Yeah but around the time Young Jump is sold in the store. Whenever japs get the magazine, they will spoil it for us. Some people will do free translation too and hours later, we will have full raw scan.
The best way to be on stand by is around 8-9am on Wednesday, pacific time.
>yfw Pierrot chops the amount of content adapted in half again
Would they have it any other way?
>inb4 entire story gets rewritten and only some actual content from the source material makes it in
>go to youtube
>look up unravel
>it's gone, even the acoustic one from the last episode
TH does tankobons anon, that's why they're slow not because they don't get raws.
They buy the tank when it comes out and then proceed to work with it.
But they seem to have died though, don't upload anything since august
Honestly I didn't even know that english translations were coming out so much earlier than the japanese offical magazine. I just kind of assumed that they came out on friday and since they were translated on saturday. I did'nt realize what a big deal all of this was until I found out.
>didn't understand why this was a big deal
>no wonder jap fans are pissed
Wait, what the fuck is happening? Why are they 'afraid to go buy raws'? There aren't police camping every fucking konbini in Japan right, what's the fucking risk other than making sure you upload it behind 7 proxies which is the only possible time you could get caught?
I just realized I have very little knowledge on how people get raws
I figured someone would have a friend thats friends with someone in Japan and they just grab a copy of whatever during the release day and scan it at home. Never really thought about the origin of leaked images.
Having insufferable retards like you is the most pain to handle. How the fuck this abomination is better? You just deluded as hell, or baiting at this point.
Now you going to made up some shit and call this tranny manga acceptable in some way.
I was scared that I would regret. I don't regret!
I can't read archived threads?
Most of the people already ignored this manga and don't give a shit about it. There are plenty reasons why this manga is shit and I talking about RE here. The major reason it's shit though is because of you.
>I left this thread an hour ago when it hit page 8, expecting it to finally die.
>That clearly didn't happen. Right now we are stuck at people asking if IS shit themselves, if nips have balls or not and clownposting.
>If you people won't euthanise this thread, then at least don't make a new one. We have clearly shitposted all we can in 5 threads.
Well the main reason that anons such as this one is butthurt, is the fact that IS only guaranteed the survival of Tokyo Ghoul scanlations.
Although if I was the one butthurt over the fact that my favourite series was dropped, I personally wouldn't be doing my very best to piss off everyone who would potentially be interested into picking my series up, now would I?
Look, I just want you to realize it's shit but it doesn't mean you have to drop this.
Just say it's kind of shit you like and then you will stop being cancerous just like bleachfags
This is how spoilers and RAWs for nearly every popular magazine is obtained. It's always days before they go on shelves. Hardly any popular series uses scans from something just on the shelf.
Next thursday or Wednesday depending on your timezone on baidu, fuck knows what MS is going to do or who's supplying then. So we will get this chapter and the spoilers for the next chapter then.
I still can't get over the current chapter. Papa Arima was too cruel.
damn these threads are pathetic this week
I hope we get the chapters on wednesday anon
I wish that's what actually happened in Root A, instead of a butchered jumble mess of like, half of the key plot points from the manga put together with no thought for sensical story progression.
I really want someone who has only watched Root A to try and explain to me the plot of Tokyo Ghoul without reading the manga.
They weren't even plot points, just scenes from the manga in different contexts. Kaneki vs Shachi or Juuzou vs the twins in the anime were ridiculous. I don't think Ishida's storyboard is better than the manga, but it was something.
Baidu posted some spoilers
Man, before all this I didn't even know we were getting our shit early.
I thought every time a group mentioned not having a raw provider, they just meant no one to pick it up and scan it for them in Japan
That's all I could find on Baidu, they might post more.
Eto is being draw rather unattractively here.
BUT NEVER MIND WE FINALLY GOT THE FUCKING SPOILERS THANK GOD
The realization that our manga raws and translations are literally part of a criminal underground was a very sudden one. I'm still not sure how to feel.
It's like buying drugs off of a shady guy in a trenchcoat, but instead of drugs we're buying asian children's comics.
>Being this picky over an example
I'm making a joke. There's no way in hell I'd show TG to any kid, related or not.
I probably wouldn't show it to a teenager either.
I was ready to wait even until next thursday for spoilers but ok. Does this mean the spoilers with amon were real?
Finally walked his ass up the stairs.
"Alright, all of the wall of text are places/train stations in Tokyo Greater Metropolitan Area. The sfx in the bottom panel are gatan, gatan, the sound of trains. In between I can see some sentences. I can’t make out any of the speec bubbles
The melon bread I ate with Hairu at Kanda (train station in Tokyo) was delicious.
Hairu: Yes, yes, no more, no more.
???: erase it"
The summary of the chapter:
Sasaki attacks Eto. She dodges. The helicopter with Matsuri in it attacks her, and she knocks it down. Matsuri escapes using a wire like Arima. Takatsuki Sen comes out of Eto’s form clothed in bandages, laughing “Mwahaha, just a flick to the forehead!”
Furuta kills his co-worker, and then starts camouflaging himself in blood to make it look like he was attacked too. At this time, Ui appears on the scene. Furuta lies to him “We killed all the ghouls, but all the other investigators were killed too,”. Ui looks over the dead bodies, and tightens his grip on his quinque.
Ui’s memories: Riding a train with Hairu. The two of them look like they are going out somewhere together. The station names “Shibuya”, “Harajuku” and “Yoyogi” etc… pass by. Then, Ui is alone on the train. “The melon-bread I ate together with Hairu in Kanda was delicious”.
All the investigators are wounded by Noro’s attack, except for Shirazu. He runs towards Noro who’s kagune has turned into a giant mouth. He leaps towards it and looks like he is about to be eaten.
Takatsuki Sen eggs on Kanae. “You don’t have much time left”. Kanae starts to fight Sasaki again. Takatsuki Sen watches from above. “AH!! Oh yesss <3″
Sasaki’s face gets smashed in by Kanae, and he retreats inside his mind. He talks to little ShiroNeki.
“Will this save you?”
“What, why would that…”
“Can you do it?”
He looks away from ShiroNeki and says yes. “Without realising, I thought it was wrong to want it. I don’t need dreams any more”. Sasaki’s appearance changes.
>Takatsuki Sen eggs
You did not jus-
Everyone's kagune frames were raised up to F3 like Urie's was, right? Although, Urie's is at F4 now, so I suppose everyone else's was opened up to there too? There's no way the CCG didn't notice how Urie broke open his frames from F3 to F4, and if nothing bad happened to him then, they might have considered expanding the frames of the Quinx up to F4 too.
Get hyped for the Point Blank Bomber, guys!
so is he gonna die or get regurgitated for kanou/oek/general aogiri bullshittery?
haven't people been saying that his kakugan's on the right side for a while now? sharkbro doesn't deserve this.
> He looks away from ShiroNeki and says yes. “Without realising, I thought it was wrong to want it. I don’t need dreams any more”. Sasaki’s appearance changes.
holy fuck PEDE INCOMING?!!?!
Urie was hinting at using his F4 kagune right before Shirazu suggested using Nutcracker. Considering how Shirazu went through training with Haise to learn how to use his kagune, we're probably going to see the fruits of his labors.
I'm just not a weaboo you stupid bastard
Thank god it's finally confirmed that Eto doesn't give a shit about Kaneki. She interfered because he was winning and now has Kanae finish him off. From the looks of that dialogue with Shotaneki both her and Kanae will get BTFO.
Not him, but surely you'd have picked up on a few words and on how they're used as slang by people here based purely on the context? I mean. Shiro and Kuro are two actual characters in TG whose names are color coded.
Actually no, because I dont pay attention to shitty side characters who are weak as fuck.
All I care about are the strong characters like Eto, KAneki, Haise, Urie and Noro.
I dont give a shit about 1 shot characters, now fuck off you troll.
Mama I'm sorry
I'm sorry I'm sorry...
I don't want anything anymore...
I don't want it anymore
Don't hit me...
I don't want it anymore
【Mama you're my favorite】
And the google translate.
I always liked people who play it. Mom I'm sorry ... I do not I'm sorry I'm sorry ... I do not ... I'm sorry I do not want ... I'm sorry ... do not hit me I do not want ............... sorry sorry sorry ...... ......... [my favorite mother]
Ishida's new post, there's some text attached.
そうしてもう、きみは きみ自身を許せなくなっている 許せないでいる
脳が透けて みえないものは もうなにもない
Different circumstances. Kaneki is an easy target and he idolizes her, he will justify her outburst as it being his fault, or forget about it entirely.
Her sister is family and she's a grownup, if she hits her sister it will be the same as cutting off the only family she has left aside from Kaneki, although Kaneki will never leave her.
What the fuck. Oh my god, no, Ishida what are you doing with Kaneki's mom?
He's had enough. Don't retroactively make his mother an abusive cuntwad in addition to an already mediocre mother. Wasn't everything else enough shit to pile on him? Please let it be Urie. Please.
He killed her while she was sleeping.
Abuse still happens in well off families.
It better not be fucking Kaneki being hit by his mother I swear to god I'll write a polity angry tweet to Ishida expressing my displeasure. I'm already projecting enough as it is.
The hairstyle's similar to a younger Mutsuki, honestly, but it doesn't really make sense for either of them to be getting flashbacks; according to the "legit" text spoilers, they're incapacitated.
Could be Ui, and the hair length/way it fans out at the bottom is similar to Shirazu, but the color's wrong. Everything points back to Ken. Poor guy.
>Aunt tries to cover for her sister and nephew
>Keeps trucking along for years
>Eventually can't stand to look Kaneki in the eye
Never minding that thought, Kaneki is officially an unreliable narrator if this is really his mom hitting him. We have no way of knowing if his Aunt was really a money grubbing bitch anymore. We don't know anything if this is legit.
For all the story and writing is so good in Tokyo Ghoul, I think that a medium with art is the best way to portray it. Ishida's art is amazing for subtle elements within expression and body language, and he's completely improved on everything since the start as well. Shading, faces, movement, and even use of symbolism such as flower language and tarot numbers.
The art of Tokyo Ghoul is half the reason I look forward to new chapters. I indeed greatly admire Ishida for his abilities.
I would probably keep reading even if Tokyo Ghoul stopped being enjoyable for me. Because I have an art crush on Ishida.
Guys, it's not Kaneki, it's Furata and his mom.
You're eating out the hands of the shitposter again
Well, it still makes sense before? Putting his hand on his chin doesn't mean he's saying the exact opposite of what he's saying, just that he's hiding something. It was logical to assume that what was hidden was his resentment towards his mother for neglecting him. Now, though, it seems she also abused him.
I wonder if remembering this particular memory is what Shironeki is referring to?
>“Will this save you?”
>“What, why would that…”
>“Can you do it?”
If so, I wonder if the reason why Shironeki seems so happy about it is because it would be a relief to admit that it happened to him rather than to deny it ever did?
Jesus don't do something like that. I was abused infrequently (ended up in the doctor's office sm͏h fa͏m) as a kid but I think it's good that there's media awareness about it/it shouldn't be censored because it does happen.
Make a Twitter and ask Ishida to draw some more Touka.
That's true. His use of symbolism and little hints in the pictures are great. I wonder what he'll do after TG. Though that will be pretty far since TG will most likely be a 3 part story.
>Try to tell an off color joke
>Everyone thinks it's legit
>In the worst way possible
Next time I'll use a picture or something fuck me.
>Kaneki is "gone".
>Haise has no memories from Kaneki you stupid prick.
>And if he did he would not remember this silly "memory"
This is bait. I should not bite it and yet I am. Two wrongs, no gain.
I cant risk endangering my friends
I do, but if you want the answer you must pay homage to my clown and tumblr friends
I never said he was the greatest but alright. I'm just appreciating his job at writing a story. Though feel free to refute by mentioning your 2deep4me manga that got cancelled.
"one of" not "the best"
How can you be friends with both clowns and tumblr? Clowns are like, anti-tumblr. They're pretty fucking untumblr on the scale of things. The only one that's tumblry is Nico and tumblr refuses to accept Nico as being trans.
You can't have both.
>Cant have both
What is Uta
What is Souta
What is Nico
What country just woke up? Is it the Aussies or the Americans?
You caught me. I've been hand delivered by Mr. Reddit himself to come and shitpost in this thread instead of discussing things. How do you feel now? Have I successfully rused you my dearest friend?
Man. You are underestimating not only how bored I am, but also how low my standards are due to being desperate for human interaction.
Replying to you is how I shitpost, anon.
The epic Centipede Exterminator v Half Kakuja Centipede standoff was never animated
>Eto blowing up her cover as Takatsuki
What? This is pretty OOC. Chick has always been under the radar since she was living her full ghoul life in 24th ward. CCG/V still don't know her gender and now she emerges from her kakuja form so that she can see the fight and show her fucking face.
Ishida isn't retarded, right?
I like Sharkteeth but I hope he dies or is severely wounded. Pretty tired of kiddnapings and tortures. I want to think Ishida is better than this.
Kaneki doesn't use his kakuja when he was fighting Seidou I don't think he needs it to fight shit ghoul like Kanae. Also he doesn't have enough RC cells so it'll be an aspull if he can use it right now
along with alot of other cool shit sadly
> obsessing over a creepy autist when you have a 10/10 husbando right by your side
Hairu deserved to die. She clearly wasn't living her life correctly.
Her cover getting blown might seem inevitable by now considering Hinami knows she's Takatsuki Ken and is writing an actual diary referring to "her" while in her prison cell at Cochlea.
but if you want to see the ED itself you have to do that. I like the song but the illustrations ishida drew make the song much better because they syngergize
Translation of Ishida Sui’s Tumblr post - 16 Nov 2015
From here. BGM here.
“The Sky Falls”
I had a dream where the sky fell down.
The bloodstains won’t come out, no matter how many times I pour warm water on them, they won’t come out.
Only words begin to dissolve everything, and get stuck in the drain.
And you become unable to forgive yourself, unforgiving.
I had a dream.
A failure of a God
She laughed and squeezed my throat.
It’s always like this.
Only people dull to pain hurt me.
She truly loved me,
Only she didn’t know how to love.
What a stupid God.
My nerves grow strangely and pierce through my skin.
All at once they sing out.
Far away, someone laughs. Soon, it’s not even my voice any more.
My brain becomes transparent, and there’s nothing I can’t see.
On knowing the things you didn’t know, you die.
I had a dream where the sky fell.
A checkerboard sky.
Squashed by it, I died.
Yes, I wished for that.
>It basically looks like Ishida accidentally pasted the essay he wrote about trains into this page of the latest chapter.
So glad there's no Amon bullshit in this chapter;also Eto's behaviour is weird af she joined the fight to save Kanae from getting last hit by Haise then revealed herself after crashing the choppa' but doesn't care if Haise/Gayprince know her identity meaning they won't get out alive
It's already an old song. Just ask yourself why no one on /a/ sang it when the anime was airing? Exactly because the anime was shit. I can only imagine these threads being filled with shitposts. So I'm not expecting /a/ to sing it
but reddit can
>people can get arrested for this shit quality scanlation
What's the point? Why not wait 3 more days and release a HQ scan? Isn't there a HQ english scan that comes out a week later anyway? Is the e-peen of releasing first that important you risk going to jail for it?
Holy shit my heart. It looks like they are going on dates and shit.
Fuck you Matsumae.
what the fuck is going on
They're talking, in some kind of twisted world.
Is this a "well fuck we're gonna die again" talk, or a "Well, it's time for the centipede to start his feast." kind of talk?
Is it time ? Is it time for Kakuja-kun's 3rd appearance ?
Let's hope, let's hope.
I mean, I wish it was, but this isn't the first time Ishida has teased it with all this 'going insane' stuff. Every time it happens, someone shows up to save Haise's ass which means he won't need to go centipede.
Could still be that Amon shows up.
Also, Eto's a mean bitch, technically holding Haise down while Kanae goes ham on him.
>Haise choking ChibiKaneki to death
Don't be silly, she's just hiding her head inside her coat.
The quality is absolute ass, the watermarks are fucking obnoxious, and they can't even post the spread pages in full resoltution. The Chinese translations were better than this horseshit.
Does anyone have an idea what ishuhui is talking about
What does his expressions show?
