    Speed vs Quality

    Post by Ya-Sha on Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:51 pm

    These days, there are many scanlation group. And some of them are working over the same series. Quite a lot of scanlation group working on THE BIG THREE and there was once a fight between Transcendence and Dragon&Fly Scans over Black Bird. If I'm not mistaken Sakicow and A-Team also fighting over the rights of scanlating Berserker. And now, the newest one is Manga Pirate. Manga Pirate is scanlating quite a lot of series from Big Three to Tower of God and some of EGScan project. They release their chapters daily. As a reader I'm quite happy with scanlators competition. Competition will make the series updated faster and come up in better quality. So, I want to know your opinion (as a scanlation group's staff or as a reader), which one do you choose, quality or speed?

    I'm not a picky reader. I will read whatever scanlators who did the fastest job in updating manga. Since English isn't my first language, I'm not too bothered with grammar mistakes (maybe I don't realize the mistakes too)... But, in term of quality, I'm quite bothered when the image isn't edited well. It doesn't mean to be perfect, but just good enough so I can easily read the text and see the beautiful image.

    I will choose speed. Rather than dying to know the continuation of the series I would rather read a speedy chapter even though the quality is bad, but when another scanlator release the same chapter (with better quality) I will read it too. At the same time, I'm really greatful with all scanlators. If there aren't scanlators, I won't be able to read manga. So, I don't quite understand all the trolls and rants over the quality of a scanlation manga. Come on.. Scanlators aren't a professional publisher. We do this just for fun. And as a reader we should be really thankful to those people who spend their times (hours or even days) to translate and edit image.

    I agree with McKnz. I'm really grateful there are a lot of scanlation group in this world. Without them I might not be able to read manga FREE... Yeah that's the problem. I don't have enough money (yet) if I have to buy all my favorite manga. So, basically, I'm happy with whatever they gave me.

    But, in case of SPEED vs QUALITY, I think I will choose quality. It's easier to read good quality manga, even though, I won't go mad troll and rant just because some scanlation group release a low quality manga.

    I think I'll choose speed. And yes I'm agree with Skylar. I'm not really picky about the quality, as long as I can read the text easily and the picture is fine Very Happy

    So, I can't choose both? Speed & quality will be the best combination. But if I have to choose, I will choose quality. You know, I used to read several harlequin manga. And the scanlator releasing lots of manga in short time. But the quality? It's really MEH... Not only a lot of grammar mistakes, but editing is really terrible too. So, I will choose to read manga based on its quality. I don't want to spend my time with bad quality scanlation.

    Looks like a lot of people choose speed over quality. Personally, I will choose speed too. Rather than dying to know the continuation of the series, I would rather read the terrible quality scan. When there is another better release, I will re-read it again...

    do scanlators have some kind of policy?
    i mean something that every scanlators agree.
    maybe some unwritten policy or something like that..

    Uhm... we don't have anything like that.
    Since scanlation group is more like community..
    But, we do have some kind of ethic codes.

    I will choose speed over quality
    Tho, there is a minimum quality in my standard
    a terrible grammar or chopped page will stop me from reading
