stop this shit. The author didn't use any font of that kind and it's also harder too read.

I just lurk and wait for threads of manga full of people begging for translations, I'd assume that shit is good, download all the raws and enjoy it myself. Then join in on the begging so I can discuss it with /a/.

I join those threads and translate random chapters. As the hype builds and builds, I keep translating new chapters until other anons want to jump in on the bandwagon, then I quietly walk away and laugh as I wait for the other translators to give up and the fans to be left looking at untranslated raws again.
>>
>>123438536
Yeah fuck off, that is exactly the opposite of a good translation. Come on, preserving the original is the top one priority, i mean, don't go full VIZ Media but still, don't just throw away the meaning.
>>
>>123441420

How does the translation in the OP throw away the meaning? Even the more liberal translation still sticks pretty close to the Japanese.
>>
>>123438536

It only flows better.

Whatever happened to the YKK guys?

If you're translating shonen, they shouldn't curse.

Here you go:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1y1TAjTLO4dCoyjRdka_bbzCkWoQjZyifYzFlYeH3fSo/

There are dozens of entire series of both manga and light novels here in this massive collection of raws, which scanlators haven't began to touch.

If you want to scanlate, try your hand at some of these.
>>
>>123441506
>Even the more liberal translation still sticks pretty close to the Japanese.
Sure, it's easy to say that if you can't read the original Japanese. The majority of scanlation groups out there are still intermediate learners themselves at best.
>>
>>123439069
Yeah, that is a really poor font choice. They should have used a broader, rounder font for the variant, not some completely unfitting edgefont. The translation is also shit. Basically, whoever made that shouldn't be trying to teach people.
>>
>>123444199
>If you're translating shonen, they shouldn't curse.
That makes no fucking sense. They use expletives and derogatory terms in many of the original works which are considered "swear words" in English.

Do you actually read these works in Japanese?
>>
>>123446549
>hurr you should only work on these titles compiled by the manga casuals of /a/ and you should subject yourself to the varying quality of shit raws that we have provided

Yeah, no thanks.
>>
>>123441567
A few phrases are better worded, but that's the point.
>>
>>123446690
Bully.

But I agree, somewhat.
>>
>>123446647
In English, Carlin's seven dirty words are unambiguously swear words. But in Japanese it's not quite the same.
>>
>>123446690
>the manga casuals

You stupid fucking moron, there are series on that list which you cannot find outside of Perfect Dark or Share.

The reason why so many of them are not scanlated because they AREN'T casual shounen shit.
>>
>>123446647
If an eight year old uses くそ, I translate as "Dang it".
>>
>>123446690
Haven't look through that list, have you?

>>123446803
Instead of translation, why don't you work on your Japanese?

What? Casual content is the stuff which gets scanlated for the masses.

>In English, Carlin's seven dirty words are unambiguously swear words.
1. They are not Carlin's words.
2. They are mostly expletives which are only "swear words" given surrounding context.
It sounds like you know as much about English as you do Japanese.

It's a fucking casual list. Get that noise out of here. It's not Bleach-tier, but it's low-power-level-anime-fan-who-thinks-he's-high-tier-tier
>>
>>123447021
A more fitting description would be that it lacks actual "obscure" manga, and besides I'd only consider "obscure" manga as something that hasn't got scanned at all.

There are less than a thousand titles so yes, it's not even a big list to begin with. You are still a bully.

The same as you translate it, goddammit.

>Let me go, you octopus!
Says it all right there. You don't fucking add words that don't exist in the original text.

On that note, I seriously doubt the translation was all that accurate if they felt the need to "rewrite" it and completely be nothing that it's supposed to be.

>That last bubble
Wasn't even translated right in the first place.

When you original literal translation is shit, you're going to rewrite shit. Translate better first. Stop justifying shitting it up just because you're a big prick.
>>
>>123447372
That hows most scanlation thread goes.
>>
>>123438536
>Aslo
>trying to advocate for quality
Wow.
Not to mention making text too big for the a bubble and stroking it with white to make up for that.
>that last front
Are you the same guy who started the thread about lowercase letters? You sure seem like him.
Something like Film Cryptic, or Nicotine Stains would be so much better.
>>
>>123447827
>octopus
It's there. But in this case it's also a pun.
>>
>>123446604

Are you sure you know Japanese? It sounds a lot like you're spouting bullshit and hoping no one will call you on it.

That explains a LOT. Yikes.
I at least did 5 years of translating and learning before I considered myself competent.
