Fellow /a/esthetes, some Noble Soul has decided to pick up the Manga, Rejoice!!
Pretty sure it's done by anon who mention it a while ago, so I guess he'll read this. So here are few things: first, zip your shit next time, second, don't use same font for everything. Looks closer, they use different fonts in the raw.
Bumping for Tea and for Life!
Thank you based anon! Finished the show a few months ago, thought the source material was dead for good, so this is some great news to wake up to.
Keep up the good work!
Questions for anyone who knows, but does the anime do a good job of following the manga? In other words, is anything in the anime filler, particularly the ending? and does the manga go passed that?
The wiki says that there was some controversy concerning the anime studio, and the mangaka.
Anime is scene-for-scene, to my knowledge. You can pick up on the exact page where the anime left off.
wew i actually marathon rewatched this just two days ago
what a shame that i have all the content fresh in my mind
does anyone know how many volumes are covered by the anime? i've always hoped to see/read more but its never been available
Fuck dude. Just a tip for future scans, you can save grayscale images as PNG-8 with 32 colors, change selective to adaptive, 100% dither, and uncheck transparency (assuming you're using photoshop).
>post end in 88
No Hitler, it is you who doesn't remember.
Tea, always is the answer.
This whole scene made me cry. I'm not afraid to admit this.
>you will never serve a rising warlord
>you will never pledge your loyalty to the glory of a man's ambition
>the world is ruled by the masses, not by great men
>you will never be told to take the money and the jewel box
All right, you need different fonts for these things:
-Date/stuff on the maps
-Very bold and thick lines
For chapter titles I'd suggest something a bit curly (like this http://www.dafont.com/poetsen-one.font) I guess, or maybe this one http://www.dafont.com/eastern-brush.font. Please keep in mind that the text there is all gray aside from one word (I suppose it's teakettle).
You already picked up dialogue font, so here are some tips: don't use capital I when starting the sentence, and I don't think there's a need to write names and such in italics.
For thoughts, I don't know, http://www.blambot.com/font_unmasked.shtml probably would look fine, remember to keep it italic.
Dates/maps, just pick something from standards fonts, there's no need for comic one for this stuff.
Very bold and thick lines (like the last panel on the last page in the first chapter), something like this http://www.blambot.com/font_creativeblock.shtml.
It's just a quick look though, would be better if you pick something resembling original and fitting yourself.
Also, read this shit (just ignore the part about text boxes) - http://prettyanonymo.us/index.php/scanlation-resources/anonblacks-typesetting-guide/. It's not perfect, but I don't think there's anything better out there.
I also noticed that you didn't level scans, so do that next time (or if you'll gonna do v2).
God bless you anon, take this as a gift.
Based. Don't be disheartened if you make mistakes since everyone does. Just make sure to fix the file size and vary the fonts like the anons in this thread have already pointed out.
I'm really glad you're also picking it up where Kotonoha left, instead of the where the anime stopped.
Nishioka Kyoudai drew some Franz Kafka stories, so I'll probably scan that next after this Harta issue.
>some Noble Soul has decided to pick up the Manga
This is truly a glorious day
The BDMVs for Hyouge Mono have bonus material about tea and finely crafted tea bowls.
Season 2 when?
I just read Kakuzo's Book of Tea and I'm wondering how much of this series is about the aesthetics and politics of the tea ceremony, or is it just a historical comedy that happens to involve lots of tea? I'll probably start reading this in any case, I just want to know what to expect.
It's a biography of a guy named Furuta Oribe, a historical figure who served as a tea ceremony master.
It's more about his life than anything, so there's plenty of non-tea related stuff.
The anime appears to be somewhat faithful to the manga, so I will say that based on the anime, there isn't a lot of tea ceremony stuff, except for the focus on historical artifacts and aesthetic philosophies.
The tea ceremony is normally supposed to be an otherworldly act, a thing removed from more mortal concerns. It's a deliberate choice of the author to interweave the Sengoku intrigues and politics into the tea ceremony, he's making a statement about human ambition.
Oribe was a footman for Nobunaga, Nobunaga was a two-bit provincial daimyo, Hideyoshi was a peasant, and Rikyu was the son of a fishmonger.
forced to conspire against the Tokugawa and commits seppuku, Nobunaga is betrayed and murdered by his own commander, Hideyoshi's invasion of China fails utterly and his rule doesn't survive his passing, and Rikyu *also* is forced to commit seppuku and if the anime is to be believed, he dies regretting his ignorant sacrificing of Akechi to fulfill his own ideals, a death made more bitter by the fact that he was to self-centered to see Akechi's aesthetic potential
The whole message of the series is to expose the fact that most great men are just as greedy, petty and ignorant as the unwashed masses. Sasuga anon
I'm debating reading up until Volume 9 and then reading the rest of the series raw to get the best feel for it.
I really need to improve my eleven
>They seemed to get on
Again, the fact that such great men
end up at each others' throats and stabbing each other in the backis the whole point of the story.
I think I had the OST at some point, but I must of deleted it accidentally. It's out there.
Have you seen the anime? because it's identical to the manga + voices and a great soundtrack, I found the pacing to be superb too, it's incredibly comfy.
I will admit, some of the scenes that the anime left out, have been pretty great though, and I like the art.
Thank you very much, anon. If you ever consider dropping it due to a lack of typesetters, just make a fuss and I will come to help.
Bumping with the One-eyed Dragon!
