Comment on Jump Manga Suspended for Tracing by Anonymous:

Come on. Those traces just look ugly and out of place. A child’s silly crayon drawing would have been better.

He has the freedom to distribute his comics for free if he felt entitled to trace stuff that everyone else drew.

    I don’t give a shit. It looks good.

    Of course he was probably getting payed next to nothing, but…

    I’m Anon 11:06 Tracing like this isn’t necessarily bad and it is still a common practice, and I don’t disagree with artists doing it, but it does reflect poorly on the artist’s reputation and that of Jump if his manga only consists of copies of copyrighted work. Also if a complaint is made then he must compensate the owner of the photograph. My guess is the suspension has to do with such a complaint or a preemptive action to get all the legal aspects sorted out after the copying was brought …

    No, this is plagiarism. He is copying to the T a copyrighted photo. If he took the photos off a legitimate photo database, either free or paid, then it would not be plagiarism. Just googling images and tracing/copying them and using it for your own work without the express permission of those who took the photo is copyright infringement. To clarify any photo of anything is always the property of the photographer, unless they have either sold or given away that right. Even wedding photos and the …

    Yeah, so what… it could be considered the style. Some of the work is OBVIOUSLY traced/photoshopped. The only REAL issue is copyrights. For example, if he took a picture of a city – then converted into a manga style, its his. Taking someone else’s photo and doing the conversion… a no-no. Using free photos or even paid ones are not a problem. I have a legal collection of about 1 million photos on DVDs that I’m allowed to use for various things. I can search by subject, whatever.

  • Atelier Shallie Plus Trailer Talks Incessantly:
    I’m glad that you guys are commenting about this because for a very long time I was really upset when I had bought a few of the Atelier games for the PS3 (Rorona and Meruru) and then they decide to later make PS Vita Plus versions and add all-new content. I still own Meruru and Rorona and I’m fine with those…I think. Will I miss anything if I don’t play those titles? It isn’t like it is going to change the games all that much anyway….right? They did say that the story and character-driven …

    Or you could play the original, and then ignore Plus when it comes out. That’s what I do. By the time Plus comes out, I’m busy with other, newer things, so it doesn’t matter. If you get too hung up on waiting for a more “complete” version of a game, you’ll miss out on actually playing the game! Plus, Game of the Year, Collections, and all those other monikers are to entice late comers.

    Fuwacina has made such great songs with her Oster Project. This commercial is pretty disappointing in comparison. And please delete the retarded crap from anon 19:32 …

  • Atelier Shallie Plus Trailer Talks Incessantly:
    Pretty much… I hate them, seriously… It’s a complete tear in two because I enjoy the games and the general concept as a simple and fun casual game with characters I enjoy, and yet they keep pulling this billshit. I wouldn’t be as angry if they released the extra content as DLC, it’s an age of DLC, and it’s simply what it is. They can patch the game on PS3/4 with the new content and sell it for $5 and I’d get it and replay the games. It just seriously is a shady business practice, and …
