    mangagamer VS jast usa

    so who do like more jast usa or mangagamer for me it's a easy decision mangagamer hands down why? because mangagamer actually translates eroge unlike jast usa that just makes partnerships with fan translators and uses their patch. i think its a good idea you know the fan translators get some money for their work but the problem is well for some unknown reason it takes jast usa MONTHS and months to release a eroge when all the work has already been done by the fan translators. I mean it takes mangagamer about 3-4 months to translate a game and release it while jast usa only has to release it they don't have to translate it which takes the longest amount of time. I understand that it takes a while the negotiations between jast usa and a eroge company but it should not take 5 months. I also understand they have to do a bit of editing but that also doesn't take 5 months. but I'm fine with jast usa taking so long seeing as i have already probably played the fan translated patch it's just that i would like to see jast usa actually working to get their share of the profits. I mean the fan translators have done 70-80% of the work while jast only has to do 20-30% and they do that 20-30% of work so SLOW. As for mangagamer i love them they are super fast and always at work as soon as they have released a eroge they start a new one. so what do you think jast usa or mangagamer who do prefer

    First of all, do you know periods? It's a serious pain for the eyes to read your text.

    As for the topic, I don't prefer one of them. At the beginning the mangagamer translations were horrible though; let's remember edelweiss.
    But now they are decent-good and so I don't have any problems with mg. Jast? Sure they just buying nearly finished fan translations
    but where's the problem? Like you said, the groups would translate the games anyway and so they get some money for their work. All in all
    both, jast and mg, do something for making visual novels more common and that's always a good thing.


    Edit : Thx for using periods.

    Both of them have pro and contra. JAST usually have a good title lineup but as you said, they didn't actually translate stuffs themselves. Mangagamer is fast but I think many of their games is nukige (apart from some really good ones). I'm fine with both of them as long as they provide me with decent reading material.

    Jast are a bunch of douchebags, they don't keep their promises and deadlines. For example, just look up the Stein's Gate "offical" version" by JAST debacle.

    Neutral standpoint which is slanting slightly towards manga gamer. I cant find the heart to ridicule Jast when I just started reading My girlfriend is the president just now. But, I find manga gamer a bit more respectful.

    Good day.

    Meh, I don't like either of them. Although I am excited that Cleavage is hopefully getting translated. It seems like Jast has a better backlog of games, so I'll just go with them. Probably won't buy from them any time soon though. Also I'm a little confused about how Jast seems to think they can snatch up Saya no Uta after a fan patch has been out for 2 years. Good luck actually getting money off it.

    You should have add poll for neutrals. Haha. As long as they can translate kanjis, that is all that matters to me anyway.

    I don't like either of them but if I had to choose between the two, It would be Mangagamer because they release their games faster and has more VNs of my taste like Edelweiss or Kira Kira
