Someone looking for a cool new project to work on or really anyone please check out Shinjuku Swan. Only 3 chapters have been translated by Vinceled, he was looking for cleaners, typesetters and all that shit but I'm guessing he already quit it after 200 days.

Only 3 chapters but this thing is really damn good, it's all about sex industry, yakuza, loan sharks, business and money in general, both art and story are great, no idea how difficult or easy it might be to redraw thought.

>Shiratori Tatsuhiko was a bum wandering the streets with no money to his name when he meets Mako. He works as a scout for an agency called Burst that recruits girls on the streets for adult entertainment in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo. Tatsuhiko quickly learns the techniques of scouting and is even more attracted to how much money he can make. But with how the industry is maintained, Tatsuhiko has to deal with the lying, deception, violence, greed and even the yakuza. He wants to keep the morals that he has, but it gets progressively harder and harder as he gets deeper into the other side of society.

You forgot to crop the left side a bit.

Also, you should save it in RGB JPG 5 since there are a lot of tones on this page.

Getting someone to steal the project from SpinyBack (the person, not the group) so that we can expedite the process of completion of the original series and catch up to the latest Baki Dou chapters(he demands donations for releases despite having a full-time job). He is not a native English speaker(Mexican), so I run QC, text/translation editing and typesetting. The cleaner is, uh, subpar.

this is an average page we receive from our cleaner (after I placed the text over it, of course)
like, there's no way for me to cover up all of that shit with text
essentially all he does is white out the kanji/kana
pls help
>>
For starters, use a narrow font and reformulate the sentence in order to have more text covering the long ass white space.
Once you've done that and considering you suck at redrawing, use the stamp clone until you've filled the white space and then use the brush to fix things that looks way too off.
You can bump the value of the white strokes a little more too.

If he's literally holding back releases until he gets paid, then he's a dick. I can understand him just not wanting to pay for raws himself though. I've got a few things I'm only planning on doing if I get a few bucks in donations, but they're mostly extras and I'll just keep doing other stuff otherwise.

He's a yakuza, his pants are gonna be loose no matter what the circumstances are.

That is exactly what he does. Except, it's more than just holding back releases - he doesn't even translate the chapters until he gets paid.

>I can understand him just not wanting to pay for raws himself though.
He doesn't buy the raws, he gets them off these shady raw sites that are mostly pornography/hentai.
>>
>>136092452
Okay then, by all means steal it.
In my case I'm paying for magazine raws for a series but the new volume just came out and it has some extras in it. I'm willing to play around a bit to keep getting the magazines, but I'm not buying the volumes with my own money so I'll just do the extras if someone donates, no big deal either way.

I'm *looking* for someone to steal it/help steal it. Literally every single group that has ever worked on the Baki series has demanded either payment or donations for releases, and I really believe that needs to stop. There must be someone out there willing to contribute freely for the love of the series, or to spite SpinyBack, or whatever motives one might have.

You dont really have to know how to draw well. If you can you hide most of it with text and fill in whats left over. You can infer whats supposed to be there by looking at whats already there. Also use the clone stamp tool lots.

Nope, can't find them. Weird. They should be out there somewhere. If I find a lead, I'll drop in here to let you know. In the meantime, it'd be nice to know if there's any group whatsoever interested in working on Baki. Series 2 and 3 have long been completed - the only projects that are still ongoing (in the main series and in terms of scanlation) are Series 1 - which is halfway through - and the new series, Baki Dou, which is currently 20 chapters short from being up-to-date.

Spiny is releasing one chapter of Series 1 per week(generally someone pussies out and pays him). That's a ludicrous amount of time wasted when it takes him about 15 minutes to translate a chapter, an hour or two for the cleaner, and 15 minutes for me to play with the text/typesetting. At this rate, the original series will be completed in like 5 years. I really don't want things to have to come to that.

>>136094982
I wouldn't know if they're normal or not but as I said, they're plastered in pornography and crap, with the occasional legitimate raw manga upload sneaked in between hentai releases.

>>
>>136095256
Ah, okay. Was just wondering if they had any magazines that aren't scanned in public, I've been trying to find raws for a oneshot in the new Manga Time Kirara Max.
>>
>>136095319
Spiny himself does have *some* source that he won't disclose that gets him certain raws if good ones aren't publicly available. Fairly certain it's just some person he knows irl in Japan, but there's been some extremely obscurant things he's said that make me doubt myself there.
