    Default Translator's Font

    Hi there! Not many seems to have asked about this, but I'm wondering what is the favourite font often used for scanlations? I've been searching randomly... and going through 40+ pages to find it is a pain. Anyone knows its name?

    Comic sans

    BTW, you probably should have put this in the misc series section (which is for general anime and manga discussion).

    Oh sorry about that. Btw, I can't download it from megaupload because the slots are always full... Megauploads hates me! Is it alright for it to be in yousendit or something else? Thanks!

    Oh, "comic sans" here is not "comic sans MS" right?

    MS=Microsoft, its a Microsoft made font.
    They're the same thing.
    And I assume you managed to download it in the end.

    if you search around you can actually download a pack of all the fonts used by major scanlation groups. like wild words, and then all the fonts used for accenting shouts and such.

    Shit, sorry, I got forgot about wild words (which is used more than comic sans), I just completely forgot about it and so I just assumed that comic sans was more popular.
