Waiting for tank edition.
What manga are you typesetting/translating/ripping?
Have time to help?
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.
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
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.

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.
The author died only the year before that post was made. RIP. He did a Frankenstein manga that looks silly.
>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.

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.
From the cover page it seems like a soothing manga and I love the author's art style, based on his hentai works.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Here's what the pages look like. With 9 chapters, a volume should be out soon (if they release one).
That's actually not too bad. For comparison, here is an example of the only other raw I managed to find.
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.
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.
