Ika Musume no longer has a dedicated group, so it needs anons to come together and work on it to bring squid joy to everyone until someone hopefully picks it up. If you can contribute translations (so it isn't just one or two guys doing all of the work), it'd be appreciated.
If you'd like to work on chapters in your own time without having to try and catch a thread, raws are here:
Rest of volume 13:
Dumping 242 onward. Chapters are around 8 pages each.
I want squidbutt.
New cover for the upcoming volume next month!
Fucking deja vu, I remember the last time this didn't have a translation group and someone dumped it, and people were sorting out raws.
Good luck finding people to do this!
I just finished the anime today, I fucking loved it. Looking to pick up the manga too
On a related note, where should I pick up the manga? Should I just start reading it from the beginning or can I pick up where the anime left off (and where is this)
I don't really fancy reading everything I just watched again.
the manga is different from the anime
Anyone buying volume 16?
Me, I have all the other volumes, too
I want this colored page more than anything else,but google translate doesn't say which store this page has.
Thanks for dumping this, its great to be able to read so many new chapters.
Dunno when the next chapter is going to be typeset and released. Probably some time today.
I think someone is also doing 240 & 241, but don't quote me on that.
How far behind are we?
E-mail me if you need a translator. I'll have to catch up on the manga first, though. And I'm in my last year of college, so I'd be prioritizing that over this.
Never worked on a manga before, don't speak Japanese, but I'm alright at photoshop and good at English if that's any help (proofreading/editing, maybe? Would you find that useful?). I'd love to do something, but I'm pretty useless.
I love her so much, /a/. I really do
>I'll have to catch up on the manga first, though
It doesn't exactly follow a plot. I haven't read any of the manga and just picked it up in the 13th volume.
Pretty much all we need is a translator and maybe another typesetter to get the chapters out a bit faster, because I'm lazy.
Ah, okay. Think I could learn typesetting quickly enough? Otherwise, it's doubtful that I could help then.
I'm not good at Japanese, but I think I can help you with the translations. Send me an email
I'm just that type of person.
Plus, I can't contribute anything right now because I was supposed to be in class twenty minutes ago and just woke up, hence email being the best option.
Typesetting is really easy. You just kind of have to not be an idiot and you're good.
Typesetting is something anyone can do, but it takes practice and an eye for centering bubbles. I'd start here http://www.redhawkscans.com/showthread.php?3308-Typesetting-introduction
I can do a few chapters translations, I'd probably pick the ones I like rather than do text heavy ones.
Can you tell me where to find the other raw volumes? Looks like good reading material for Japanese practice.
We'll always need a translator, so either look for these threads, or download volume 13 and work on your work, then post in the next thread.
Well, we're 75 or so chapters behind, so we'll always be in need of more typesetters and translators.
Eh, guess I'll give it a go then... Read through the guide, and played around with text in PS for a bit -- doesn't seem too hard. Not really sure how to start, though!
That's the tough part, I don't know what to tell you there, I started by doing pixiv comics, and then a couple H-doujins, but you'd need a translator to start that way. You can just start with an ika chapter I guess. The first thing you need is a bunch of fonts, do you use IRC?
Uh... Not regularly, but I'm familiar with its workings.
I'm here let's go.
Isn't that a rhino beetle？
If you join #LoveLab on the rizon server, I can link you my font pack backup. I don't really want to post the link on /a/.
I have a question about the translations, is it okay if I join you, too?
Yeah go ahead
Oh, hey. Thanks.
That's it, come on！
Dammit! I lost! (I / He / We lost, blah)
Whare are you doing de geso?
We're Rhino Beetle wrestling!
It's a big thing among Elementary School Students at the moment！
And that's image limit. I don't know if anyone's gonna dump edits in this thread, but I'll delete some pics.
I'm only halfway through the next chapter lazy week, I'll wait until the next scanlation thread or a random ika thread to dump 239, either way they'll be on batoto when I'm done.
Looks like a really fun toy!
S-Stop it Ika-neechan... We're not playing around like that!
These are proper living creatures!
Oh they're living things de geso?
I want to fight with these things too then de geso!
Well.. First you need to catch a Rhino Beetle then...
Where do you catch them de geso?
As an exception we'll tell Ika-neechan our secret！
Our top secret Sap tree spot!
Late at night
I'll work on this in a bit.
Typed it out for now.
Just making sure, you didn't just run it through OCR, right?
Are they really around this late at night de geso?
Rhino beetles are nocturnal, so of course
Also Ika-neechan, is it really okay to have that girl as our guardian?
Don't worry about it!
Found it! The sap tree over there!
There's not even one!!
That's wierd... There's always at least two....
There's probably some up the tree...
Come on, fall down!
It's useless... It won't budge an inch with our strength...
Let me try taking a look with my tentacles de geso...
No, that is hardly needed for such simple text.
Looks like something like that was enough
Looks like we don't need to worry with this girl around after all...
Doesn't it look a bit slanted? （Squid pun)
So are there any Rhino beetles among the ones that fell?
。。。Nope Rhino beetles are a bit different to these。。。
I'll go organize and re-proof the scripts for chapters that haven't been typeset.
I can't be bothered to correct things but you are going to need a TLC (Translation Checker) for any translations you get from random anons.
The more you try to systematize this, the less inclined anons will be to work on it in their free time
Well, this is just anons getting together. The scripts are there if anyone wants to check them.
There's an alternate version of the Rhino beetle here!
That's a Stag beetle!
Rhino beetles are sort of a different type Ika-neechan
But, isn't this one kind of cool in it's own way?...
I've decided on this guy!
It has the nerve to attack an Invader such as me! I'll acknowledge that courage!
Truth be told it's Rhino beetles only but...
Rhino beetle vs Stag beetle seems kinda cool too!
The Next Day
Come on, let's go de geso!
Let's invade this arena de geso!!
The opponent is this way de geso!
THIS way de geso!
The nose again！？
I understand de geso...
You're not running... You're saying this arena is too small aren't you?
It truly is futile to fight meaninglessly over such a small arena de geso...
Your goals are always set high!
I'll too will follow your example de geso!
Our Rhino beetle wrestling was meaningless huh...
Why did we think this was so cool about this anyway...
About 5 or so chapters until vol. 13 is done.
