    Manga Recommendations Guidlines and Information

    Welcome to the Manga Recommendations forum! The purpose of this forum is to help find and promote unscanlated manga. Manga Recommendation is for readers to point out manga that interest them, that are not available in their native language.

    Prefixes:
    • Shounen: For manga from shounen magazines.
    • Seinen: For manga from seinen magazines.
    • Shoujo: For manga from shoujo magazines.
    • Josei: For manga from josei magazines.
    • Manhwa: For Korean comics.
    Thread Title should be the title of the manga and name of mangaka
    • [Name of Manga] by [Name of Mangaka]
    • Only One Series Per Thread.

    There is no required format for Manga Recommendations. But do not forget that you are trying trying to draw someones attention, and convince them to put a lot of time and effort into making it available online. Providing a minimum of information will increase the odds that a series is picked up. We suggest adding:
    • Title
    • Mangaka
    • Magazine It Is Serialized In
    • Number of Volumes
    • Plot Summary
    • Link to Mangaupdates or Mangahelpers database.
    The more information provided, the better. Think of the above list as a suggested minimum. Japanese title, pictures, year of publication, publisher, and any other relevant information is welcome.

    Mangaupdates has incredibly detailed entries about every manga anyone could possibly think of. Mangaka, year of publication, publisher, magazine, demographic, number of volumes, titles in English and Japanese are all available for virtually every manga. Most importantly every entry has a list of every chapter scanlated, date of release, and the name of every group that has worked on it. Please check before recommending resuming a stalled series, be sure that no one is scanlating before posting. Also be aware that not all groups release on a weekly basis, a series may seem to be stalled, when in reality the group is just waiting for better raws, working on other projects in their rotation, etc.

    This is not intended as a staff recruitment forum. Scanlation groups looking, or translators, looking to staff a new project should return to the Staff Recruitment area. While it is always nice to offer to help scanlate a manga, that is not the intent of this forum. Manga Recommendations is only meant as a place for readers to help identify new, neglected, or unscanlated manga.

    Please do not use this forum to promote favorites that already have active scanlators. Please do not use this forum to trade raws. Excessive links to raws or scanlations will be deleted.
