Waiting for tank edition.

What manga are you typesetting/translating/ripping?

Have time to help?
tinyurl com/ScanlationBulletin

Need help on anything related to scanlation or want to request scanlation? Post here.

I guess you can also talk about manga you read here.

A lot. Though I haven't been doing much these past few weeks because finals.

Fixing spreads mostly.

I don't suppose anyone knows what kinds of APIs Yen Press uses to distribute their stuff. What happened to their Yen Plus magazine anyways?
>>
Anko-san anon here.
Same shit. delayed v2 of chapter 7 because of class and finals and whatnot, chapter 8 and 8.5 are around half done. Nevertheless, I'll be keeping my promise of releasing before Christmas.

I need a translator for vol. 2 and onwards

Does anyone have a functional method of ripping from Manga Reborn?
>>
>>117946122
I could probably fashion one relatively easily, but to be honest, it's not that hard to use DownThemAll or something to do it, at least per chapter.

I got a blank image when I tried to rip a page, but I'll see about DTA.
>>
>>117946072

Apparently Justice Scans or whoever will pick it up from v2, but I can't find any contact info for them and that one user in the comments section hasn't logged on since September.

how did you get into translating manga? did you have to learn japanese in order to translate or just used google translate?

That bait worked well last time, might as well give it another go.

Someone post the redrawing/cleaning tutorial thingos
>>
>>117948366

>The main character and "anti-hero", The Rapeman, is a high school teacher by day and dispenses his surreal brand of "justice" at night under the business "Rapeman Services", which is co-run with his uncle, a former surgeon. He uses rape as his weapon. The business' motto is "Righting wrongs through penetration".

Sounds like fun.

The original raws were 2100 or so, I don't know why they resized it to 1300. It wasn't debinded, though, so the spreads have that shadow. It'd be nice if someone wanted to do the editing for an HQ scanlation.

On side note,good afternoon! and Ym the 3rd is on sale today. I don't think that guy is going to rip it too,only magazine that really have people keep ripping would be Afternoon now.

Nice. I can't wait for your work to come to fruition. I give you my thanks for giving some time for this series.

Well, for manga I'd like to see translated I'd like to see this translated some day.
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=98595
From the cover page it seems like a soothing manga and I love the author's art style, based on his hentai works.

>I don't think that guy is going to rip it too
What happened? I've been out of touch for a while.
>>
>>117952016

I think a lot of their series are available as web manga on their site now. No ebook mag doesn't help, though.
>>
>>117952086

Between Teppuu (dead scanlation), WCW, and Nanika Mochigattemasu ka, I'm sure someone will want to rip them.
>>
>>117952349
The guy working on Teppuu is still slowly working on it, but is missing a redrawer apparently.

I fucking love you, Anon. This is probably better than working with the public raws.

I'm surprised you didn't check their site to begin with. What series?

How do I get into typesetting? What's the typeface people use? It happens fairly often when there's manga posted on /tg/ that it gets scanned and translated pretty quickly but doesn't actually get typeset until like the next day or until someone posts it on /a/ (if it's one that's popular here too, like Good Guy Orc) and I'd like to be able to help with that.
>>
>>117952531
I'm not normally in charge of procuring raws, and my group focuses primarily on doujinshi/H-manga. The series is Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai
>>
>>117952865

Oh, that one. Only the first and last few chapters are up there.
>>
>>117952567
Wild Words mostly. Or Anime Ace. Yes I'm serious. Spend time looking for fancy fonts on some free font site for effects if translator does effects. Try to match the style to what was there. For handwritten text, my personal favorite would be Brianne's Hand, or SF Grunge Sans.
>>
>>117952865
>>117952931

Also, I don't think a tank has come out yet.
>>
>>117952931
A total of 9 chapters should be out. Is there any other way to get the other chapters aside from purchasing and shipping them?

Endless Googling yielded no results when I searched for raws two months ago.
>>
>>117952567
Anyway, just hop right in and do it. People aren't shy about giving feedback when you're making mistakes and it's a good way to learn if you're not sensitive. There's guides you can follow, but really it's pretty self-explanatory. Put the words in the bubbles and make them line up nice. There's a photoshop plugin some people use that looks pretty neat, but I never felt it was necessary.
>>
>>117950293
Post the page you're doing so I can try.
>>
>>117953128

I'm not sure if there's a Comic Blade app that lets you purchase the between chapters, so take a look.
>>
>>117953263
Will most likely ask the TL to have a look. Thanks for the advice, anon

That's actually not too bad. For comparison, here is an example of the only other raw I managed to find.
>>
>>117946751
That a waste of time. You need to automate cleaning as much as you can, then clear all important places with magic wand (set it at 30-60, depending on chapter/volume scans in question), then write and use action (decrease selection on 1 pixel, and level something like 0/1/200, then ctrl+d), and bind on some hotkey. Same for black (level 50/1/255 - usually it's more than enough).
Cleaning with eraser/brush is waste of time, and should be done only if scans really horrible and/or faster methods won't help and/or they destroy too much textures.
>>
>>117953969

Yeah, Comic Blade stopped getting scanned a few months ago. Not sure what happened there. I don't even know of a good place to regularly buy it that doesn't require a proxy.
>>
>>117954132
Yeah, and it's the one thing preventing my group from properly picking up the series. Hopefully, it'll get a tank sometime soon.

Some weeks ago I got myself signed-up on Tsugumomo, and now I have to finish cleaning chapter 54, but don't have mood to do it today since it's really time-consuming to restore textures back and do some redraws.

Also, someone willing to translate little (12 pages) funny hentai oneshot? Pic related.

Typesetting is easy (especially if you don't care much about anything). Cleaning is hard.
1. Download Photoshop CS6 or better. Better get either "portable" version or "extended".
2. Search for "comic fonts" and download as much as you want.
3. Open scan, press M on keyboard, select space around text, and press F2. Do this to all text in all balloons.
4. Press T, select (hold left mouse and pull) space for the size of balloon, and copypaste text. Do this for all balloons.
5. Adjust text so it will look nice (pic related).
6. Save for web in png (16 or more colors).
7. Do the same for other scans.
