Recently I've decided to give manga a try again. I did read couple in the past from Baka (Kimi ni Iru Machi, Suzuka, Love Hina), and couple short ones online. Yesterday I have downloaded three more; 87 Clockers, Doll's Folklore, Kuro(Samato) (I kind of love romcoms/slice of life like this).
Names of manga itself are not very important, what's inside that bugs me. Given the superb quality and strict guidelines of any any anime releases, I thought it was weird to find it like that. Files inside are like named without any order or standard, there are four types of naming convention in 87 Clockers:
87 Clockers_Volume02 - additional 0 (just visually, sorting still ok)
87 Clockers_Chapter33 - chapter not packed in Volume
87 Clockers-_30 - chapter not packed in Volume, missing word "Chapter", additional dash
0113-0115 - additional number
KURO 0057-0112 - word KURO which destroys the order
You get it, this is normal for majority of manga I've downloaded from bakabt (as I mentioned earlier, that's just handful, but I can't believe I'm so unlucky). This cause any sorting to be pointless, reading by simple viewing pictures after unziping is impossible, as names of the files (not folders or zips), are even more unstandardized.
And now, maybe there are software that detects order on its own, and let me read it without renaming it on my own? I Googled a few and I've tried ComicRack & Manga Meeya, and they can't detect it, sure they read through unziped files, which is more handy, but they still detect "Chapter" first because of its alphabetical order. Sure, if there is <10 files in the folder, I can do that, but sometimes there are hundred more.
So again, should there be any restriction to how particular manga upload should look like in terms of file naming, or should I (or we) just suck it up and do it manualy (or make a script, I remember doing something in PowerShell long time ago), for every manga we download? I remember I used to transfer files to my very old and cranky tablet, but it is impossible without fiddling with names on PC beforehand.
What is your way of dealing with this?
Does it even bother you?
