Otaku Corner does not plagiarise.

Once again we've been accused of taking our summaries from somewhere else. So I'll address the two matters separately.

"Otaku Corner steals summaries from Gaia member."
This I had to laugh at. Seems people haven't realised yet that I am Sephiroths samurai girl on Gaia. I post the summaries on the Fruits Basket thread as well here because some people don't know about this site.
What they've also seemed to overlook is the link to this blog in my profile and my many picutes of my little Seph.

"Otaku Corner steals summaries from Shadow's site."
Once again people haven't done their homework. On most occasions we get our summaries out before Shadow has the chapter translated, usually almost a day in advance. She also doesn't do summaries, just translations of the text with small scene descriptions.
My friend and I translate the chapters and if you haven't noticed there are not one hundred meanings for each word, so ofcourse all summaries and translations are going to be similar in some ways no matter where you look. There's only so many ways you can translate "I want to see".

If you continue to make accusations I will no long post summaries for the series which means no ending for anyone and no scans.

And on that subject:

"Otaku Corner steals BillWang scans to pass of as their own."
This I had to laugh at. In past posts I've already said I use BillWang scans. And you've got to be blind to miss the huge "BillWang" water mark on the majority of scans.
Yes, of course these are my own scans, I just decided to put someone elses water mark on there for fun. {end scarasm.}
In not one single post have I ever said these are my own scans, I get them from BillWang because my printer/scanner can't deal with scanning so much. {As I found out when it decided to shut down taking the pc and my essay with it.}

I've got my first A-Level exam tomorrow and did not want to be bothered with this now. If this continues I will simply stop posting summaries on both Gaia and Otaku corner.

    Hey guys I just wanted you to know that i was one of the first readers of Otaku's summaries and if any of you ever noticed she basically just summerized what happened, she did not do a literal translation, so how can you accuse her of copying shadow's work. Now you ppl accuse Seph, don't you have anything better to do with your time.

    Hey Otaku and Seph, Just ignore all those losers out there who have no life, they are not true Furuba fans becuase if they were the would be thankful to get fruits basket updates.

    I am one of the newbies reading your summaries and I love them! I think these people that accuse you of plagiarism need to get a life. Please don't listen to them! Thank you so much for all your hard work, you guys rock!

    Thanks guys. ^^
    It's good to know there are so many people who enjoy our site.

    My little Seph feels happier too. Poor little neko boy got upset.

    Though its quite funny that the girl who accused me of stealing my own summaries from Gaia managed to completely miss my big pic of Seph in my signature as well as the links to this site and my profile which has a Seph theme.

    Thanks! ^^
    My exam went quite well today luckily though I was really nervous before hand.

    Congratulations on your exams! I also had a math test today..... *very nervous*

    And as everyone else said...... ignore the slubberdegullions and whippersnappers (I just learned those words today! XD). I love reading your summaries of Fruits Basket, even though I can read Japanese so all I need are the raws. It's great that you're helping all these people, and sad that other losers have to be so *insert profanic words here*. So overall..... THANKS SO MUCH!

    P.S. The little Seph is so cute........

    So glad I don't take math anymore. >< It never worked for me. Got a B and I'm happy with that, don't want another two years of it to get another one.

    Seph's going to be getting a big brother soon, or three rather. I'm buying one in a weeks time, the next around the end of July and getting one for my 18th in October. They all cost around $680 though. T.T
    So glad my nan has given me about $185 in dollars. Living in the UK helps too so I only have to save £370 for each boy thanks to the exchange rate.

    Omg I can't believe some ppl. I read that comment by the person who accused you of claiming Billwang's scans were your own. No where in that post did you actually say it was yours, anyway. And all this crap about plagerising Shadow's translations is stupid. Shadow's is different anyway.

    And congratulations on your exam, Seph!We've just started our exams here in Australia.

    Please don't stop posting for us. you have teh greatest translations. Some people just want to ruin the fun for everyone. I was so excited when I found your translation and scans on the same day I came out in Japan. I thought that it was a great service for all of us Furuba Fans.
    THANKS !!!! alice

    Ps good luck on your test

    I recently discovered these summaries and I wanted to say how much I appreciate them. Thanks you so much for putting you time and enery into posting them. I hope you don't let a few flamers stop you from posting the summeries, because I'm addicted to them and would go crazy if you stopped. Thanks again!

    Some people just have to say something stupid all the time. Please continue with the summaries i love them and mostly i cant wait till shadow has them online (i read both summaries and i can tell you are not stealing hers at all, those people who said that are blind etc) and also i cant register at billwang coz they are not accepting morrre members?!
    so its cool you post up the scans so i (and many others) can see them anyway :)

    keep up the good work :)

    Yeah BillWang registration has been down for some time. I'm just glad my friend got her account before.
