Release #32 2019 & about our progression
Happy Halloween! While Halloween is over where I am, I guess I still managed to make it for Halloween in countries that are a day behind me! Big thanks to Reversinator for rush proof these chapters even though he was very busy with school right now. I also did the typeset in half a day. Even though the chapters are short, but when you multiply it by a few chapters, the pages adds up…Oof…my right hand is crying right now… I actually had to stop a few times cause it was unbearable…
Did I just say chapters? Yes, since the last time I translated this (I think) was a year ago, also, incidentally, during Halloween, (wow it’s been awhile), I’m trying to make up for it with a little bang. FIVE CHAPTERS! I hope with this, more people can appreciate the beauty that’s ‘Black Terror.’
Oh, also, for this release, there’s no delays on Mangadex because otherwise, Halloween be over by then. Delays will resume after this.
I also want to touch on a little bit about translation progression because recently I received an email from someone asking if they can takeover ‘Rokuhodo Biyouri.’
I must first state that I am not trying to hold onto absolute possession of any manga I translate, but I am always, if possible, try to hold onto it (LOL, I know, contradiction) because (you can say I’m being arrogant or what but…) I’m worried that the other party will not be able to do a great translation, typeset, or whatever. (insert own intepretation).
I gave my all for every single chapters/stories I translate, sometimes I wonder if that offset the waiting time for the readers, but I will want to stress, I have never translate for the readers sake, great if you read it, but I’m not going to like cry in the corner if nobody reads it either. The few of us here in ‘Anata no Motokare’ we are all just perfectionists and we really care about the art of this. The translation, the redraws, the overall quality. We care. Which is also why we are all suffering from some kind of pain that’s scanlation related, be it carpal tunnel or a bad back.
While doing it for free out of our own pocket.
Also, what I’m about to say is not trying to put the blame on Velo, she’s precious and I love her very much. However, we all have good and bad productive days. At this moment I’m being very productive because I really have translated loads and loads, but there aren’t enough redraws ready. So, I can only release what Velo had already redrawn, or stuff that doesn’t need redraw or stuff that I can do myself. Also, Velo is my ONLY redrawer. She is as passionate as I am about what we do here, unfortunately, Velo is also a medical student with a very punishing study schedule and can you even imagine she redraws ALL the things I translated that needs any sort of redraw while being a med student. Sometimes, we all just take turns to be bogged down by school, life, whatever…
I appreciate the people that email me first instead of just taking over without a word, but I hope those that read this, or just following our translation know that we are constantly giving our all. We just aren’t the fastest, because not only we are a small team, we also have responsibilities like real people.
If you want to help us, you can contact me through the email from the contact section, I’m insufferable though, and I might reject you if you don’t match our skills level. No time to teach, so please be Level 999 before joining if you want to help speed up the process.
I am never looking for another translator because I’m always happy translating everything, but right now a really skilled Velo level (she can redraw it like as if it’s the original file from the artist themselves; tldr- FLAWLESS) redrawer (also with good time management) to assist Velo will really help.
Let’s have a chat if you think you are one.
P/S: Also that mythical amazing typesetter that can back me and Chiasa up, I am still looking as always.
