What would you do if your room mate murdered your ex-girlfriend for cheating on you? Would you face certain death to do the right thing and turn him in? Or would you go along with his twisted plan to dispose of the evidence?
"Real Friends Help You Move Bodies" is a dark comedy about three friends caught up in an unusual situation that leads them down the primrose path of murder, mayhem and betrayal. The script is a feature length adaptation of the original short film created by Dark Design Pictures in 2007. The film will star Christian Martinez, Scott Kirfman and Christian Thorne reprising their roles from the original short film, and is written by Travis Thomsen and Benjamin Blackwell.

Possible Downtime For DL5
Posted by Yukimura on 06/02/2011 5:55 pm
EDIT2 - DL5 Is back up and working
EDIT - DL5 is down and will be for a few more hours.
Server dl5 may go down for a while tonight for maintenance. I don't know exactly when it will happen or how long it will last but if all goes smoothly it shouldn't take more than a few hours or (hopefully) less. I apologize in advance for anyone who's download gets cut off.
DL1 Hardware Failure
Posted by Yukimura on 04/07/2011 11:41 pm
Server dl1 is back online and fully restored.
The file restoration process has begun and should be done in about a day or so.
The server has been repaired and set up is
complete progressing, we should be starting the file transfer sometime tomorrow and it should take about a day or so to complete.
It looks like the hard drive in download server 1 has died and will have to be replaced. We have backups of all the files but it'll take a few days at least to get the new OS configured and all the files transferred over. We'll update as more information becomes available.
Guidelines for Manga of the Week Suggestions
Posted by KaKaR on 03/18/2011 1:58 pm
It always disheartened me how many people don't care to read the complete MOTW post, in which I clearly state where to send MOTW suggestions (It's written in bold and italics so it stands out). Despite my efforts I often find suggestions lying around in different places on the forums or in the inboxes of other staff members. Let's try it one more time in a bit more detail and hopefully you all will pay attention to it since there are no series for you to skip to in this post. If you would like to see your favorite series featured as Manga of the Week then PM me (KaKaR) your suggestions through the forum PM system. I have included some guidelines at the bottom of the post for you. Suggestions will remain open until I say otherwise in a post.
Note: I am aware that there are good one-volume manga out there and I want to eventually incorporate them into MOTW at some point, but not right now. If enough people prefer that they should be featured then I might change my mind. You can post your thoughts about one-volume series in this thread.
How to properly suggest a series for MotW:
- Put 'Manga of the Week Suggestion' as the pm subject.
- Suggested series can be from any genre or series type that we host on MT.
- Multi volume series suggested must have at least 2 volumes scanslated.
- Please try to include completed and fully scanlated series in your suggestions also.
- You can send more than one suggestion in a pm, if you do please list them in order of your preference so I know which one you want to see featured the most.
- Try to check Archived Manga of the Week thread and board to make sure what you are suggesting hasn't already been featured before.
- A brief explanation of why you think the series deserves to be featured will go a long way towards making your suggestion stand out. Try to keep it around 250ish words though.
POLL: What information matters most to you when browsing for series?
Posted by Yukimura on 01/13/2011 4:47 pm
As you all are hopefully aware the go to method for browsing for new series on Mangatraders is the Extended Series List page. In an effort to get feedback from the community I have established this poll to determine if any information should be added or removed to make the page better for its intended purpose to the community at large.
Please keep in mind that while the extended series list is meant to be a convenience we have no intention of making visiting series pages obsolete. The point of the extended series list is to give a quick peek at a series to help you determine if you're interested in learning more about it. It is not meant to enable you to make up your mind to pick up a new series immediately.
From the options in this poll please select 5 (Or less, please remember, don't go out of your way to pick 5 if you only strongly care about 3. Over voting could help make the 2 you didn't care about as much seem more important than the 3 you really did.) the options you would most care about when browsing through series trying to decide what looks good. Also If you have any comments about the browsing system overall please feel free to share them in the thread.
