I had higher expectations from this author. This kind of rape shit is disgusting

Then don't read it, is has tags for a reason

To be fair to the original poster, this did not actually have the rape tag when they posted it. It was added a bit after it was first uploaded.

To be doubly fair, it is actually fine to give an author the benefit of the doubt even if one does see the tags, and still complain afterwards. This manga's depiction of rape is pretty disturbing compared to a great deal of other content here with the same tag(s).

Yay it's back. May 2021 continue to be the year of revivals!

But it’s April, not May hehe

...in a thread for a manga about wordplay, I can't even complain. You got me good!

Might need to take a look a this: https://dynasty-scans.com/forum/posts/678410

Done, thanks.

Is there any chance that we can get a “long strip”/webtoon button for series? We’ve been getting more long strip stuff recently and it would be nice to have the option to read it as one cohesive strip like mangadex would do. If it can’t be done then no biggie, thanks for the time

Unfortunately this would come rather far down the pipeline, so I wouldn't see it happening anytime soon, if at all. It is a highly-requested feature, though. Thanks to you too.

Yeah, I'd quite prefer if we stayed away from using such checkered and offensive language as "uncivilized." There are many less extreme, more specific ways of expressing oneself.

i mean you're not wrong that sexism is bad but you don't have to be racist about saying it :///

I am not meaning to be or sound racist, for I am talking about a culture and a country not a race. There are thousands of Japanese people who live in better countries and who are great people. The country and culture of Japan, however has historically and contemporarily brainwashed its people into being impractical, ignorant, racist, and sexist. I have deleted the post to avoid further confusion, apologies.

Okay, you need to stop. Right now. If you hate Japan that much, then maybe you should stop reading fiction coming from there. Geez, you sound like the very same kind of person you're condemning.

I rarely do read Japanese works, as I tend to limit what I engage in to art which has respect for humanity in it. If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

Yeah...and with that out of the way, I think you can take your posts elsewhere, too. I was heartened to see that you removed your post, but only now realise you also doubled-down on 90% of that post. Intended or not, such blanket generalizations of entire people as "broken," "brainwashed," and "uncivilized" are racism. This is an English website that hosts English translations. Whoever you think your racism is benefiting isn't even here to see it. Meanwhile, labeling an entire country "ignorant" evokes imagery of centuries of Western chauvinists who espoused the same kind of cultural absolutism you're espousing here.

In any case, I believe I was quite clear the first time. You were explicitly told to not use a certain word, which you went on to use. You were implicitly told to tone down your rhetoric and practice precision. You did neither. There are plenty of places you're welcome to preach your open hatred of entire cultures and countries. This is not one of them. Your ban expires on May 12th. Thank you, take care.

Waited for it to end and all I can say is what a completely melodramatic and boring series. How the author managed to spread such a weak premise of "loneliness" over 34 grueling chapters is beyond me. Surrounded by loving friends, family and peers makes the loneliness theme so forced and unbelievable. And the overuse of the salamander and frog analogy was just cringe inducing, making the same call back over and over was just to pad frames of drawing the same salamander over and over again.

Nice meme.

It wouldn't be a huge pain. My preference in the long-term is to normalize as many names as possible, somewhere around here (all romanized):

pen name -> twitter name (if no pen name) -> twitter handle (if neither previous) -> Pixiv/Weibo/etc name. (if none previous)

Hi, welcome. Chapter 5 hasn't made it to the site because the group behind it, Fe Scans, hasn't yet granted us permission to host it here. Hopefully that will be solved soon.

Your second question is a bit more complicated to answer, but I suppose the safest way of seeing the accurate release schedule would be to use MangaUpdates, yes. I don't think it's often a problem for remaining current on series that are already here, but there are certainly exceptions, like this one. In most of those cases, the discussion thread would probably give a good answer as well.

Day ??? of asking for a Go For It, Nakamura! tag.

Linking a parody to its reference doujin tag isn't generally how those tags work. That would necessitate widespread use of the Jojo's tag for consistency, and then every other linkable parody and reference. I'm not the one to make that call, but I am all in on gratuitous use of the Jojo's tag

Edit: I'm dead wrong, that's exactly how those tags work. Suwakoto is tagged with both touhou and yotsubato, that love live nozonico image referencing Citrus is tagged with both as well. Following that, I have a new question. Should we be tagging something like this as watamote and Jojo's? (There are similar untagged instances with Sakura Trick, Azumanga Daioh, and more.)

I don't...have an answer yet.

Lizbo posted:

If you're still confused, the ZIP compression on the archive made it much smaller than the original files. (Which was possible because they were basically uncompressed to begin with.) That didn't help when reading it online, of course.

Thanks for the explanation.

Hello, I'm sorry if this is not the right place for this or if you are already aware, but I noticed that https://dynasty-scans.com/authors/konirosango and https://dynasty-scans.com/authors/kon seem to be two different pages for the same person (@pluto_305 on twitter) and just wanted to let you guys know.

As it happens, I've noticed a few similar examples recently, and I'm in the middle of compiling a list that I intend to dump in this thread sometime within the next few days. Just saying that so no one else wastes their time on it.

Thanks to the first poster and I'll look forward to this.

I'm looking for any type of yuri medias where the characters are super introspective with their feelings of identity, love, and sexuality.

While we don't host it on the site, Sweet Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) by Shimura Takako is right up your alley, I think. There's quite a bit of meandering in the plot, but almost all of it is done in service of deep introspection. I would hazard a guess that any of her work would also be of interest to you, but I haven't perused much myself.

Yes. Translation takes a lot of effort, a week really isn't much time at all. It'll be done when it's done.

some people have a hard time seeing imagery like that, especially if they have seen it irl. regardless of the quality of the joke, I just wanted to make sure it did not trigger anyone's trauma.

It's a bit of an odd thing, I think the warnings are the right idea due to some people having history with the subject, but since basically nothing else gets a warning I end up being spoiled by the warning. The only solution I can think of would be an opt out warning (though obviously that would have issues with being carried over to aggregators).

It's a worthy trade-off, and in the future I'd expect more warnings for other things, though it's not a fleshed out idea yet. By "opt out warning" I assume you mean something like a button in your profile to never see them?

I would take any reason to re-read Octave, tbh. That would be fascinating. But let's be glad that lockdown 4 and 5 won't happen, so it'll remain just like the dream here.

I'm also not sure if it's just the transfer to a more digital medium, or her growth as an artist, but everything is wayy cleaner and cuter in these oneshots. Not as drastic as something like Kishi Torajiro, but still a really noticeable difference. Really glad she's creating content again, I need to go sign up for Galette...

A bit rough around the edges, but I think I'll like any doujin with Kagome Kagome in it. Irua's great too.

Tags and archive have been updated, apologies for the delay on both. I don't think there's enough here to justify Gyaru, which was suggested.

The story was a bit touch-and-go, but I really enjoyed the opening. "Let's talk about our problems and solve them" is so un-manga (and often times, reality), that it's super refreshing to see!

That's supposed to be disturbing? Talk about being overly sensitive, geez. For a second I thought it was going to be something pretty bad since that was the first I've seen a warning like that on here

Given that a harmless note drew your attention enough to comment, it seems you're the one being "overly sensitive" here. If you'd like to continue posting, I'd suggest figuring out how to engage without denigrating others. Thanks.

Though not often the most convenient, the Recently Added tab shows that, so you could theoretically double-check the current date(s) there if you feel you've missed something.

MournfulLust posted:

But just how much blushing is needed for a work to get this tag?

A manga that someone who really loves blushing would want to read.

Near-constant small blushes with several (~once per 3 pages) full-face blushes, several full-face blushes (~once per 2 pages), or Blushing as a significant topic or theme in the manga. Oh, and if someone's blushing at their fingertips that's probably a good sign that it needs the tag!

Example of the first
Example of the second
...don't actually have an example of the third, but I bet you'd know it when you see it.

Thank you very much to the Asian Scanlation Sensation(s) for allowing us to host this! Been wanting to get it here for a long while. Fun and cute series, whose proper serialization just started a week ago. Looking forward to more soon.

Chapters 1-5 will be re-uploaded in better quality...whenever I can find those. Or MangaDex comes back, I guess.
