Manga Scanlation Groups

Recommended Posts

I've been interested in Mangas lately. Some of you may have noticed, especially Kouhai, I think...


Now, my purpose in making this topic is to have your opinions about which of the groups are the best.


So yeah... I hope you guys would post in here.



About my "favorite" scanlation groups, I would say MangaStream and Red Hawk Scanlations/Neo.


I also downloaded some of HorribleScans (CRRip) releases cause first of all, it's an official translation, and lastly, it has a higher quality than those of the scanlation groups' releases, but they're not that great at all since they start ripping chapters at the middle part of the series which is a no no.

It depends on what series you want. I would just check bakaupdates and see which group releases more frequently, because I rather read my manga ASAP then get HQ translations.
Say if I were reading chihayafuru, I'd go on the page it has on (manga)bakaupdates here. I can see there are 8 groups scanlating it, but only TDX is up to date. = I'll go with TDX.

Generally I won't even check though, I'll just read whatever comes out the fastest, ahah.

That being said, it's also damn annoying when the page quality looks really bad (like this,sometimes worse), so I'll replace those chapters if I ever come by them.

As for me, I'd visit some "well-known" group and check their projects, and see if they released it from Chapter 1 - Latest. Then download it. Heehee...

Off-Topic:
I like your sig, Kouhai :)

I personally don't like using scanlations. I prefer to buy the manga in order to support the publisher. Unless it's Gintama in which Viz decided to cancel it -_-

Most of the ones I read online, are not published in english, or if it is published in english, the company didn't release every chapter.

Though some series like Toriko and Fairy Tail I read online so I can read what happens before it happens in the anime.

For that reason I understand. For published manga with up to date chapters I would buy it. Edited by Rockman X

I would buy it if they're available here in the Philippines... Sadly, they're not. Some bookstores do have copies but they are very old and incomplete. So the only choice I have is to read online.

just as kouhai mention depends on which manga I'm interested on reading and which scanlation group is translating it :) would check bakaupdates too :)


 


as for completed series would just download from bakabt or from scanlation group,,, would always go for high quality scans..  


 


wish the old manga had better quality as well... if i have the time i would clean it myself and redraw everything if i must.. but its a pain :(


 


 


surprise no one mention 


 


Vortex-scans :) one of the best groups so far

Does Crunchyroll count?

Yes. I mentioned HorribleScans in the first post which are CRRips. :D
I meant that I actually use the website. But yeah it does count. Edited by Rockman X

      Here is the link to download the Tona-Gura! manga in its RAW format, which is rare and difficult to find on the Internet:

      I want something ongoing with 100+ chapters... I enjoy thriller/action or any romance? Preferable something with no anime adaptation out at least to this date.

      So recently I finished watching Masamune Kun No Revenge season 1 and can't wait for next season no more and so I was looking for some good sites where you can read manga.

      Hi, I am new user here and am new to manga and anime in general. Something which has always bothered me is the disparity between the manga and the anime in some particular series. How do you decide if you want to read the manga or watch the anime if you have an option? I guess what I'm really asking is what factors do you consider before making the decision?
