I found some Italian scans that are better than the english scans and the raws (Nausicaa, Domu and Dominion) and some of manga that still aren't scanlated (Patlabor, City Hunter), if anyone is interested in cleaning/typesetting and translate them (better than nothing) this is the MEGA folder:
They're on the ftp too, in Manga/Non-English.
Pic related is the first page of Nausicaa's Italian scans, it's not perfect but I'd say it's better than both the raws and the english scans. It's the original brown ink too.
This is the first page of the English scans.
Oh, yeah, it's not mirrored either.
This is Dominion. This one is on a different league, unfortunately it's been cut on the top, by the Italian publisher I guess, I haven't checked the rest of the volume, maybe not all the pages are cut/cut as much.
That's why I said they needed "cleaning". Still better than both the raws and the existing scans.
This one is on a different league of quality too but comes with issues.
The Italian publisher mirrored the panels instead of the pages. It's not systematic thing, some pages are left untouched, others have only one panel mirrored, others all panels mirrored. A real shame.
The English scans.
I tried to mail Hox to know if he was interested and if he knew what groups might be I got no response. Yet.
If you know of a group who might be interested feel free to contact them.
Basically do what the fuck you want to do with this material, the reason why I researched this shit is because I wanted people to be able to read a better release in the first place.
If I'm not mistaken this one should be the first non scanlated City Hunter chapter, 139 following the Italian pubblication, 136 following the scans, the volume is the 30th.
And this should be the first non scanlated chapter of Patlabor, 5.6 of volume 4.
City Hunter and Patlabor are classics, come on, faggots, scanlate them already.
Wait-wait-wait, it's still alive? I thought it died ages ago.
Please keep the folder and upload anything else you could leech off. Especially if you'll find original Lupin manga.
