[I typed up an entire post but then I refreshed and lost it all; I apologize if I sound rude or slightly incoherent but I don't want to waste time writing it all again D:]
To start off, I'm new to this series and I want to start reading Negima off on the right foot by only reading the best versions of each chapter because 1) I like archiving the manga I read anyway, and 2) manga readers just don't update their manga to reflect the best available releases.
Assuming that this should be where Negima fans flock now since RH is the sole scanlator of new Negima now (as far as I know), I figure this should be the right place to ask:
What scan groups offer the best (i.e. archivable) releases for different batches of chapters/volumes?
Checking MangaUpdates, there are simply too many versions of many of the oldest chapters and too many of the old scan sites have shut down to simply download every version and manually compare them all, but I figure long-time fans should know where to get whichever volumes or chapters. Hopefully there isn't too much debate about which scans are the best, but I hope this thread can establish the definitive versions of each chapter, not only for me, but for any other new Negima readers that may come in the future.
Please respond with your opinions. Thank you all very much!
