What I do in these cases is put those manga that don't get 'updated' on MU in a seperate tab group in Firefox, that way they don't clutter up my bookmarks nor use resources.

I always fear that the official Touhou manga have stopped being translated. They have gone without being translated for months before. You'd think people would care about them since people also rush to shit out the first translation patch for the games, but it's literally just 1 guy doing everything manga related right now. It's impossible to check if the latest chapters are translated or not since that guy has no blog. You can't check if Forbidden Scrollery 14 is even being worked on right now.

>>101602575
I have absolutely nothing against EGscans, I know they are working damn hard, and I respect whatever they choose to focus on.

Plus, as far as I could tell from their project schedule, they were missing either a translator or a editor for months before someone filled it in.

Still sucks ass though that groups don't pick this stuff up but whatever.

If only manga had some Turnip Farmers to tend to them.

Yeah, they're actually a pretty amazing group. Definitely way better than the groups that drop things left and right. And Jin isn't something that the average group would even pick up in the first place.
And yeah, those guys are based as fuck. I wish that more groups would concentrate their efforts on less series at once.

Wa Ga Na Wa Umishi: Salvagers trying to work off a massive debt get drawn into all sorts of hijinks while the protagonist, a former Coast Guard Officer, deals with learning the trade, paying off the debt, and dealing with love.

I've often considered restarting the translation myself, but first I'd need to find the raws and devote time to it when I'm already working on Idolm@ster and light novels.

If anyone knows a good raw aggregator, please let me know.

Also, Drops of God. Series was being translated okay, not great, but it was really interesting. Then Vertical licensed the series for English publication, and they stop. Then Vertical stops release the series at volume 4, releases an extra volume that skips 200 chapters of story to a point that features American wines and Napa Valley, and that was 2012. Nothing else, because Vertical has a licensing agreement where they have to meet a quota of prior volumes sold before the Japanese publisher lets them work on the enxt volume. It's the Koihime Musou Voice Patch all over again, only nobody will pick the series up.

As far as I can tell, they just completely stopped.

And finally, Knights of Sidonia. Apparently the volume 11 and up raws are so shitty that /a/m/'s join translation group gave up on it, and it'll be awhile before Vertical reaches volume 11, assuming they do. And Vertical's typesetting is rather shitty.

>Jan 21 2014 As for Qualia, here things do get a bit more complicated. I can’t translate, and unlike Adachi stuff, Qualia’s text is on a whole different level. It’s not just anyone that can grab a series like that and deliver a quality translation, and seeing as both of our translators for the series are pretty much not doing anywork for an indefinite amount of time, I just can’t tell what’s going to happen to it. It’s not “dropped”, but I’m not going to lie — think of it as being stalled, at the very least. Seeing as releasing a low quality translation isn’t an option for us, unless someone qualified shows up and is willing to finish the series, I can’t comment on when/whether more Qualia will happen.

Why Moogy.

>I need a guide to scanning manga

1. Debind
2. Set scanner to 600dpi
3. Place page on scanner
4. Repeat until every page is scanned
5. Upload

Not difficult.

Not really topic related, but I went on senmanga to check some raws and there are raws of first 6 chapters of manga titled Kiss-My-Ass
>>
>>101618159
Really, it isn't hard. Google could find you such a guide, but whatever.

-Debind
Cut the pages or melt the glue and pull them out.

-Scan
Place them on some scanner. Put something dark, like a black sheet of paper, on top so that the back page doesn't bleed through. 600dpi seems to be the commonly recommended resolution.

-Repeat forever.

-Done.
Beyond that, you've just gotta clean, translate, and typeset, but you didn't ask about those.

Forgive my stupid self.
I have no idea what the fuck, I kinda want to do it myself now since crunchymanga are screecapping and cropping the images at shit resolution.
So to download them:
Do I need trial? or can I rip them from the online reader? how do you even download them, in the script I can only find the reference to the flash player plug in but not the chapter itself.

Now that I think about it, Random Ika did that exact same thing for Ika Musume. That might not be a bad idea.

That should be a topic in the next scanlation thread. MU mods probably hate 4chan or something.

What about a wiki site or one of those free forums?

That way, anyone who happen to have some solo stuffs can easily edit/add the chapter download link (in the case of a wiki) or easily create an account and post the link (in the case of a forum).

Sorry, I'm very much ignorant on this kind of things.

You mean raw scan? yes first as jpg, png only later after you cleaned them.

Why not just keep everything as lossless as possible until the final release?

Kinnikuman Nisei. Not fully translated and the anime isn't fully subbed. Whats worse is its gonna stay that way because I appear to be the only fan of this series anymore.
>>
>>101620546
I'm not going to do any other job, I'll leave that to competent people. I'm going to post the raws, or a link with them, and translate them in the thread.
At least this is the plan.
>>
>>101620600
Why not watch the dub if it's not completely subbed. If you are a fan of it that is, you wouldn't mind the language, as long as you get to watch it and understand it
>>
>>101620489
End result? Depends on quality, filtering and art style (monochrome takes less space than gradients when using png, so for some manga it may be as effective as jpg)

>>101620546
Why would you ever do lossy->lossless? Is temporary file size that important to you?
>>
>>101620591
because any cleaner who's not a gigantic fucking moron can clean the artifacts off of large scans.
>>
>>101620155

We'd just need a front site that gets updated with the releases to look legit. They can just email the guy who runs it, and they can update MU themselves.
>>
>>101620689
But why would you want to add those artifacts in the first place? Unless you have a very limited internet connection.
>>
>>101620716
Jesus christ.
IT WILL TURN OUT THE EXACT SAME FUCKING WAY after it's cleaned, whether you scanned it as a PNG or as JPG. There's literally no fucking reason to have it scanned as PNG
>>
>>101620741
If by cleaning you mean overfiltering the shit out of all the details, than yes, jpg artifacts will be gone too.
>>
>>101620781
>overfiltering

Except you don't need to overfilter at all if the scans are not tiny.
>>
>>101620591
jpg is alright for raws since raws have a lot of noise or have more contrast that png can handle for a reasonable compression, no need for png... cleaning get's rid of noise and set's the contrast right anyway.

Then the whole scanlation will take place in a single .psd to not compress again and again, and only the output, final page, will be in png 8-bit indexed black and white, 16-32 colours (depending on the contrast and shading).

>>101620664
yes it is... since you share the files between people working on the series, filesize is important. For downloads, for storage, and simply because scanning to jpg represents no quality loss, and after cleaning and typesetting saving to png is as trivial as having a hotkey to do what I described in the first answer
>>
>>101620716
I scan mah raws at 450 dpi, at that point none of the artifacts matter, so jpg it is.
>>
>>101620642
The problem is the dub is 4kids, the voice acting is actually surprisingly good and for a dub its not the worst (probably the best 4kids dub ever made) but the censorship is fucking terrible and completely ruins the fight scenes

Onodera Goushi is a high-schooler who isn't much noticed in other people's daily life. In a sense, his life feels like it would be the same if he wasn't around. Then one day while returning from school, he finds himself in a life and death situation where a strange girl named Honoka saves him by sending him to another world. He then gets sent to the "Demon Nation" where many non-humans live and where he is able to meet the Ma-Ou (Demon King) who is... an anime otaku?!?!
Sounds like gerderbent Blood Lad.

Any translator here who would like a hand? I can do pretty much everything else.

I could make a site on one of those portals like forumcommunity.net
It wouldn't be hard, and MU would probably accept it, if there's no other solution.
Problem is I don't have a lot of series saved that were translated from /a/, and I don't know what to put there. If someone wants to help just send me an e-mail.
>>
>>101593899
I think Shoujo Manga Maniac's still doing it, but just really slowly though.
>>
>>101622787
Once you have the site running, mention it when a scanlator thread comes up. Or if you come by any other things done on /a/ that aren't by any group like those Valvrave spin off manga for example.
>>
>>101622787

Ah, I already made a quick frontend site.

pepperanon blogspot
>>
>>101622787
just call it something like 4chan scanlation archive and collect the translated images and release them in a zip. That should suffice as an offial group where people can get all the releases by visiting the site.
>>
>>101623029

MU hates 4chan apparently so no.
>>
>>101623063
That's because you're doing it wrong. In order to be recognized as group you need to have a site where your releases are. 4chan doesn't have that, because it's just a imageboard, so it doesn't qualify as a group.

A release is only legit if the MU mods can find it on your site/irc/whatever.

Collect the images, pack them in a zip, upload them somewhere and then make a page on the wiki like "Manga_XYZ c123"

DomDomSoft + save to Mediafire desktop folder will do that. I don't know if there's a way to RSS a group in that program though.

Well, it doesn't matter for older releases for now anyway. Just concentrate on future stuff and advertise the wiki when you see an anon translating something here.

Basically Goushi is a history buff and he uses his knowledge of history to lead the demon nation that is under threat from the human nation. Apparently all the demon lords have been humans that were dumped in that world.

>A program that checks scanlator's pages for downloads and returns a link or even downloads automatically
>DECoMORI :Downloading Externally, Counting & Manga Overviewing Really Intelligently
>Basically server checks every hour all sites on it's list, and then when someone wants a chapter, it returns a link
>Mangas are grouped on shards depending on the audience
>Shards are called by default after flowers: lilly for yuri, forget-me-not for shoujo, etc.
>Everything on do-whatever-the-fuck-you-want license and encourages making loads of smaller trackers instead of few big ones
>Easy to set up for yourself, just "download it, install on a server, give it a list and it works" so it's not the end of the world if even a bunch is taken down
>A way to set a filenaming format for every group, and then normalising it on the shard itself to make listing easier

I'm not sure you should add every single "no group" release, they're not always anons, and are sometime scan from licensed volumes (like those +Anima), which are not accepted by MU.

>>101625958
I have no idea which ones are from /a/.
I just thought that if something wasn't ok I could just delete it.

>>101626110

Because someone has to add it.
>>
>>101626028
Well, that might work, but the guys from MU are really anal about licensed scans, so it may be better to avoid them.

You're doing God's work btw. Now we'd need something like that for CR rips.

>>101626247
Would you mind telling me which ones of the No Gropu list are licensed? It might be better to avoid them, if they make so many problems.
>>
>>101626110
There's a few manga not on M-U, like that Index 4koma anthology.
Why? I dunno. It's usualy stuff that got translated on batoto/4chan so nobody bothered because MU doesn't want it.

You're looking on the Batoto list, right? Normally, they shouldn't even be there, but it seems their mods didn't see some of them (hell, the +anima scans on batoto are even scans from tokyopop taken from mangafox).

Just go with the batoto list then, or you'll end checking every series. Maybe avoid chapters who are on Kiss and not on Batoto.
