Forum News: Vote in the final phase of the Anime Awards 2014
I Eat Manga
Easy Going Scans
I scanned, I cleaned, I released.
This thread's purpose is to decide who is the best scanlator at MangaHelpers. The best scanlator can be a member that has consistently over a long period of time contributed greatly to making scanlations available at our site (both past and present), a member who provides exceptional high quality scanlations, or a combination of both. Keep in mind that scanlations can come in many forms, either by providing chapters (which we allowed in the past) or providing scanlations of other material such as volume covers and databooks.

I would like by nominating Eagle from Japflap. Released HQ Naruto scans for 6 years before he had to stop. Also, the first name that popped in my head when I saw this thread.
Be With Your Scans (BWYS) - One of my favorite groups, they scanlate various series in a very high quality. Their choise of projects is awesome. They've scanned various of my favorites including xxxHOLIC and Tsubasa RC (and X1999 etc.).

I think it's okay to nominate a team of scanlators too. Would be unfair to many scanlators to just pick their group head since there are very few one-man groups who manage to do outstanding work.
Well, I don't know. In that case the group with most members (like MS) would have the advantage. There are many scanlators that do more than one thing themselves, cleaning and typesetting for example. Morten from Gantz Waiting Room (GWR) is the best of the best but he doesn't have an account here unfortunately. So until it's been cleared up who do we vote for I'll wait before I nominate anyone (or a group of people).
barbapapa - For scanning the most absurd and hidden manga from the eye of the mainstream readers. Thanks for bringing attention to them.
nomad soul: He and the folks at Kotonoha have contributed so much to the online community over the years, bringing so many great manga that would otherwise have had no hope of being translated into English. Honorable mention to Barba and Kefi/Mangascreener.
Fleshcut: Endless Abyss have fantastic taste in manga. Bonus points for releasing Boku wa Beatles and reviving Area no Kishi.
Mr. Death: I for one welcome our new JAC overlords.
Honorable mention to everyone at Illuminati Manga. To maintain such high quality and activity over so many years is a major accomplishment. Another group with consistently great taste in manga.

Maybe we can consider this for next year and split the scanlator award into single nominee and groups but it's too late for this year, so we'll have a mashup now. Not perfect, sure. But it's the first time we run this and nobody thought of eventual problems with that :3
'Scanlator' is probably a too blurry term for a single award anyway since it kinda points to an allrounder. But there are many excellent workers who focus on just redrawing or just typesetting, so we certainly have to think on how to optimize this category next year.
Also, I think the most advance has the scanlator/group with the mainstream stuff
Pretty sure we can nominate 5 outstanding groups like e.g. Kotonoha, and yet the top favorites will be coming from manga with a bigger and more active fanbases. Also a thing to consider for next years planning. We collect experience now ^^

I'm nominating Farfalla. Unfortunately I don't know many others.
Icei and Farfalla.
The only ones I know.
I've changed my nominations to:
I Eat Manga for their contributions with Reborn, Deadman Wonderland and Defense Devil
Clockwork Lies for bringing us Sengoku Armours, St&rs, Kurogane and Thermae Romae
Trinity Bakuma for the chase of catching up with Sket Dance
Honourable mentions to Red Hawk, Muda and [CXC].

Added BWYS to my nominations.
Sorry for the late notification (considering that it's less than 12 hours before deadline) but I just remind you that it's okay to vote for a group of scanlators too. You can nominate a single person or one whole group. The awards would later be given to all members of the winning group (if a group wins) with account here at MH.
Iceiphoneix for typesetting my beloved Bakuman
I would like to nominate Easy Going Scans (EG Scans) and The Company. They are two manhwa scan groups which have done a great job to provide online readers with various titles of manhwa and keep good qualities of their releases.
can u change the nomination from fleshcut to Endless Abyss its a team effort i am just their king
Moderator message by: phio_chanSure, changed already. ^^
