It's Just Porn: Hentai Scanlation [18+ Only]

Amateur translator DeathPanda explains the workings of erotic manga scanlation as it exists today. The presentation encompasses the work involved in the craft, the various quirks of dealing with pornographic content, and an overview of the community’s composition and dynamics - a view from the production side of something that is simultaneously the niche of maniacs and an integral part of overseas otaku culture.
