if english isn’t your first language but you think and dream in english and sometimes have to mentally translate from english to your first language when speaking it as a consequence of your consistent exposure to the internet clap your hands
Despite my protest post a while ago and since introducing the “please do not repost” request at the bottom of my posts some people still take my scans and reupload them.
Without asking beforehand or crediting. Current scans and older ones. And I’m being completely ignored again when I contact them about it.
It mostly happens in the Kaji tag so for a while I’ll stop contributing here as much as it kills me.
You can thank the few people who rummage through my archive and repost my scans without credit and think it’s okay to kick the original uploader in the face by ignoring the money, time and genuine love for the fandom they invest.
I’ll still scan other seiyuu (for now) and I’ll still do requests on my side blog but for now I’ll just post Kaji news or screenshots.
Simple solution - don’t repost.
If you see an uncredited seiyuu scan - don’t reblog.
When someone contacts you regarding a source - don’t ignore them.
Most of the time you only need to scroll down a little further in whatever tag you’re in to see the original upload with its proper source.
Reblog it from someone who sources their pictures. Tags like “credit to the uploader” are not proper sources.
I know I’m not the only one this is happening to and I know a lot of other people have stopped scanning altogether.
I still want to contribute but for now I’m taking a scanning break.
Thank you for understanding.
I’m so goddamn pissed at these people. I’ve been following this war closely and even sending a couple of messages myself when I’ve seen reposts of Janine’s scans without credits. People are so damn ungrateful.
“Women stand by Sailor Moon today because it respected them, enriched them, and entertained them when others refused to — others that have not changed much in the 23 years since the manga debuted.”— A wonderful Comics Alliance article about the revival of Sailor Moon (via internadrienne)
my favourite thing about kingdom hearts is the fact that winnie the pooh and sephiroth from ff7 existed in the same universe like jsut remembering that there is a game that has both winnie the pooh and sephiroth in it is enough to get me through an entire day
“Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages.”—François Arnaud, for Interview Magazine (via mythaelogy)
