We need a proofreader.
I'll spare you the annoyingly long post.
We need a proofreader, among other things, but I'm tired of not having someone to proofread the scripts for our translators.
-You use IRC and are easy to get a hold of.
-Preferably experienced, with some idea how scanlations work.
So if this works for you, PM me on IRC. (Either GGpX, GGpX-Sleep, GGpX-Away or GGpX-Scanning depending on what I'm doing.) If I am not around, idle on irc as long as you can and I'll get back to you. If I'm still not back, leave me your email and come look for me the day after.
Releases, January 7th 2010
Okay, three chapters today, two of them being oneshots. They were originally planned to be released with the New Years's Eve pack, but didn't make it and I was lazy as all hell this week to work on them. Too much time spent scanning stuff like FMP, Partner, Koukou Tough, Garou Den, and uh... what else did I scan anyway... Oh well, can't remember.
Hakui no Kanojo (The Girl in White Robes) is a short oneshot by Hisaka Mika. I really like this mangaka. She's really good. Not enough for her stuff has been scanlated, imo, but oh well. Such is life. Not nearly enough of Saruwatari Tetsuya's stuff has been scanlated either, but I'm working on it! Anyway, big thank you to Unproductive for translating this for us. Trigger is !Hakui
Priscilla (Oneshot by the artist of Yuria 100 Shiki) is something that got us sorta confused. This is definitely a oneshot, however, there is a chapter following this that came out a few days ago. Thing is, we originally picked this up because it was a fun little thing we could do when bored. If the next few chapters aren't any better than ch2, because ch2 is kinda bad, then we'll stop right here. If they get better, then we'll continue scanlating it. So for now, consider this a oneshot form us. Trigger is !Priscilla
Sengoku chapter 20. This is beginning of Volume 03. I don't really have much to say, to be honest... Big thank you to l0ki for applying to the group because he wanted to help out. He did the full Editing job, and did a pretty good job on it too. So big props to him.
Maybe if you're lucky you'll get a release or two over the weekend, depending on how much I want to scan...
New Years Eve Release
Okay, so we're New Years eve, and since I promised another release before New Years day, here it is!
I'd like to say before that we need some staff. Cleaners mostly. So if you want to help us in 2010, please apply.
So we've released the following:
Battle Royale 2 ch16 (!BR16 or !Battle16) A new chapter of Battle Royale 2. Nothing else to add, really.
Good-bye by Tatsumi Yoshihiro (!GoodBye or !GoodB) Another volume scanned by Dille. You should really read this, it's awesome. And if you liked it, consider purchasing it to support the company that licenses the manga for US distribution.
Holyland ch71 (!HL71 or !Holy71) Newest chapter of Holyland. Hopefully ch72 won't take too long to do.
Homunculus Volume 10 (!Homun10 or !Hom10) Homunculus Volume 10 marks our 1,000th chapter released. Volume 10 ends the current arc, onwards to the final part of Homunculus!
The Strongest Legend (!Legend or !TheLeg) This is a 6-page Oneshot by Tohru Fujisawa, the GTO mangaka. This was at the request of Lordof, who's done a lot of stuff for us even though he has his own group to run.
We had other things we wanted to release today, but we didn't finish them. Some other time then.
Now for series info heading into 2010.
Battle Royale 2: We'll finish the series this year. Guaranteed.
Boku to Issho: Joint with MangaScreener, this is Nitouryu's project. We've fully translated the final two volumes. We hope to finish the series before the end of the year.
Full Metal Panic Sigma: I need a translator & a cleaner. I've already bought volumes 6-10, but I don't have any staff to work on it. So unless we get a translator application for the series, there won't be any new chapters for a while.
Holyland: We have trans up to chapter 73, but the delays come from the editing because the editing isn't easy. If we get constant translation, there will be constant scanlations.
Homunculus: Bought volume 11 this week, will be shipped to me sometime next week.
Jackals: The new translator who applied to translate it has suddenly gone MIA. We have chapter 17 translated, but after that... Who knows.
Koukou Tekken-den Tough: I'll be taking a little break from this to focus on other series. Don't know when I'll restart working on it.
Mephisto: The translator & Nitouryu are both busy with other series atm. Hoping to restart scanlating it soon.
My Street: Need a translator.
REAL: I finished scanning Volume 9 a few days ago, so we should get to work on it soon. No translation as of just yet.
Saru Lock We haven't had a release in a while because the redraws just destroy all the motivation of most of our editors. With the effort and time they put in to one chapter of Saru Lock alone, they could clean a full volume of Homunculus (Which is basically what happened).
Sekai no Longname: Most likely dropped since Kotonoha finished scanlating it already. Might do another chapter if the translator has some leftover scripts, though.
Sengoku: Need an Editor...
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi: Once we have scans of volume 9, we'll continue scanlating it. And no, I don't particularly care that Shitty Irrelevant Group #758389 has picked it up. They're just that, a shitty and irrelevant group.
Sidonia no Kishi: Volume 1 is in the mail, and we're waiting on translations for ch8-9 to scanlate them.
What a Wonderful World The translator is busy.
What the future holds: We're working on two oneshots at the moment, should be released soon. Unfortunately for you, there are new projects on the horizon.
As for our goal this year... Hmmm... We're at 1,008 releases atm... I don't have any particular goal for this year. Let's just hope we're alive and well by the end of 2010. And that Team Canada wins gold at the Olympic Hockey Tournament.
See you later.
So it's Christmas right
So for starters, Merry Christmas to all (Except the Germs) and a Happy New Year.
So it's the time of giving and receiving, right? Right??
So forget receiving, we've got lots to give.
I'd just like to say there was a lot of stuff we were not able to finish because we were shorthanded in terms of staff. So I'd like to give a big, big thank you to Nitouryu, who worked his ass off like crazy. He did a lot of work on what we've released, almost something on everything. If you want to help increase the release speed on some of our projects, help out by applying (Click here).
Boku to Issho ch23-24 (!Boku23 & !Boku24 or !BTI23 & !BTI24) - A new project we'll be doing along with MangaScreener, who did the first 22 chapters of the series. This will conclude volume 02. We've already translated the rest of the two volumes so hopefully this'll go by pretty fast!
Buddha v01 (!Buddha1 or !Bud1) - The tale of Buddha told by the God of Manga, Osuma Tezuka. A must read.
Elfen Lied ch102-107 (End) (!EL102 - !EL107 or !Elfen102 - !Elfen107) - And finally, we've finished this project after delay after delay... And we're happy! This was one of our first projects we picked up back in 2005, so this is long overdue. We put in a little something in chapter 103, so go check it out. Big thanks to Kaens & Anath for all their hard work on the series, as they will be closing down Oishii-Manga as of now. We will see what's next after this!
Full Metal Panic Sigma ch21-22 (!Sigma21 & !Sigma22 or !FMP21 & !FMP22) - The conclusion of volume 05 of FMP Sigma. You know, just a random thought, this series could move a lot faster if we had more staff, but I won't bother people with that too much today.
Holyland Volume 07 (Chapters 61-70) (!Holy7 or !HL07) - Here's a few volume of Holyland. Enjoy it.
Jackals ch16 (!Jack16 or !Jackals16) - The conclusion of volume 2 (Finally.) We've scanned & started working (Slowly) on volume 3. Maybe the next chapter released will be soon, maybe not.
Koukou Tough v05-06 (!Tough05 & !Tough06 or !Taffu05 & !Taffu06) - All I have to say is FUCK YEAH MORE TOUGH!! If you have the time, please check this out and vote.
RahXephon v01-03 (!Rah1 - !Rah3 or !Xeph01 - !Xeph03) - So I bought these volumes a few years ago. I don't particularly like the series, to be honest. But someone asked me to scan the volumes. I figured, eh, why not. So here we are...
Sengoku c19 (!Sen19 or !Sengoku19) - Conclusion of volume 02. We sure could use an editor for this right about now...
Sidonia no Kishi 6-7 (!Sido6 & !Sido7 or !Sidonia6 & !Sidonia7) Joint with Vagrant-Scans as usual. We'll try to catch up on ch8 & 9 soon while putting out tanko versions of the chapters we've already released.
All of that made a total of 73 chapters released, which is a little bit more of the 63 we released last year for Christmas + New Years.
At the end of last year, I set a goal of getting to 1,000 chapters released before 2010. We released 707 on New Years. We're currently at 995 chapters released. Das iz gud, ya?
So we're aiming for 1,000 before 2010 comes. Wish us luck.
What the future holds will be addressed on January 1st.
For now, enjoy.
Modern-day shit sucks.
So, yeah, modern day stuff sucks.
We've released the Abandon the Old in Tokyo volume by Tatsumi Yoshihiro (!Abandon) today. This volume contains eight short stories that you definitely should read. These are very good stories. This was scanned by Dille, who also cleans some stuff for Kotonoha, so if you enjoyed this, buy it in English and give him your thanks!
We'll be doing some more old-school stuff in 2010 surely. Stay tuned!
New release today, FMP Sigma ch20. !Sigma20 We'll be doing the series alone again because Sora-Scans is currently busy fighting real life, a commonly known disease scanlators often are affected with. Seriously, the H1N1's got nothing on this bad motherfucker. When they've healed from this awful disease, we'll be working again with them on the series.
Illuminati-Manga is now 4 years old
Happy birthday to us! Yaaay.
So we turn four years old today.
I'm supposed to make a big, long post thanking people, but there's just too many people to thank over the years, so I'll keep it short.
Thanks to all of you who've helped us out in some way or manner.
Also, illiteracy, if you're reading this, upload the PSD files, will ya? So that we can hopefully release that volume on Christmas. Plus, Luco_-kun will be mad if you don't ;p
Koukou Tekken-den Tough Volume 4 (!Tough04) - Welp, 4/42. That's ummm.... 9.5% of the series done. By the way, I've bought volumes of Tough up to volume 19 or 20 or so. If I could get one steady Editor and one steady Typesetter and maybe one steady Proofreader/QCer to work solely on Tough, this project could move along quite nicely. Btw, thanks to our new proofreader/QCer TaskMaster for helping get this volume done. (Hint hint)
Saru Lock Chapter 34 (!Saru34) - Editing is still difficult as hell, we still need help. We are willing to accept a joint with another group if that group can edit adequately. If not, well, we're willing to wait on new applicants and train them, but it doesn't seem likely. So, enjoy this chapter until the next.
Sidonia no Kishi Chapters 4-5 (!Sido4 & !Sido5) - Sorry for the delay on this, this was my fault. I slacked off on doing this series. This is still a joint with Vagrant-Scans. So hopefully ch6 & 7+ won't take too long to release.
Some info on some series;
Holyland -> Translator is busy all of November, so we won't release until December probably.
Homunculus -> Progressing on volume 10. Volume 11 is scheduled to go for sell in December.
Jackals -> With recent additions in the staff, we've gotten busier with Jackals. ETA for next release, dunno. Won't take too long, I hope not anyway.
Mephisto -> Going to restart working on that soon.
My Street -> Needs a French -> English t/l
REAL -> Volume 9 is going for sell on November 23rd, so I'll be buying it.
Sengoku -> Sorta stalled, of sorts. We're working on other things ahead of it atm.
If you have questions about other projects (Except "WHEN IS X BEING RELEASED??????????????" questions) feel free to ask.
My Street ch6
In other news, nothing!
Our anniversary is in 2 days.
