    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    Because I want to let the readers know more about the series that I love. Letting a series to get more attention is what I'm hoping for. Still I'm a beginner of scanlator but I will do my best.

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    I am trying to give back to the community, since this is where I come for my mangas all the time.
    And to put my fluency to good use. I have been reading mangas all my life, so why not spread the joy around the world

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    Because, just like life, if you want to have something done, you have to do it yourself.
    There is a mistaken proverb which tells us that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it. In fact, they're lucky if they're allowed to repeat it. More probably, they're condemned to something even worse than the past. This is doubly true of those who believe that their ignorance somehow makes them morally superior to those who don't share it.

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    I was interested in reading online manga. That was the beginning. Then I once worked on a manga scan group which is now dead. I enjoyed working there, and added with my random curiosity, I decided to try building my own manga scan group.

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    I started reading volumes in my language when they were finally released in germany ^^

    later i found animes and mangas on the internet and them being way ahead of my releases ;-(

    and after a long time with no time to help / after stopping playing a certain game, i thought it was time to give something back

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    It's all started because of my hobby, I guess.
    I enjoy cleaning and typesetting, and later on, I found out that I've got a bunch of Manga raws which seemed to be nice enough to be scanlated. I mean, why not?

    Not to mention that I can't translate Japanese/Chinese, so I guess it's better to make a Scanlation, then work out for those Raws. If you know what I mean. It's just about hobby for me...

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    I like cleaning raws ^^ it's really fun for me because every raw has a different challenge.
    I like just downloading raws and cleaning them to see it I can do it. It's fun
    That's probably why

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    Hmm..even though I release slowly and I am a new scanlator, I do it because I love manga, I wanted to give back, and introduce people to new manga artists, all the bad and good...

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    Because it seems like nobody else wants to work on Kochikame. (and I really want to see more of it released)

    Well, aside from that it's just because I already knew how to do much of it and because cleaning & typesetting is a good way to pass the time while listening to a podcast or something.

    It's a nice little hobby which can even be fun sometimes, and the end benefit is seeing a manga that you like get a release in a new language.

    Re: Why do you Scanlate?

    I find it very entertaining and a fun hobby to pass time. It is a nice reprieve from the stress of daily life and the other things I have to deal with. The community within itself is fun and very pleasant.
