Release Post #6 2018

Hello~ it’s been a while since our last release post…18 days to be exact…ORZ
I didn’t expect it to delay for so long… and there I was proud of my weekly schedule haha…
Really sorry, after that final episode of Produce48 (I’m still salty LOL) a lot of things had happened…

Typhoon… a blooming social life (What, what, motokare is a riajuu?!) Japanese likes to socialize with her?! 
I been busy chatting up a storm to improve my Japanese, so I see that as beneficial…
I’m also studying hard right now cause I have Japanese exams soon… 

And then, (more excuses, yeap, why not, right?! :D) I was being flaky on what I wanted to translate…
I cleaned a whole bunch of stuff…I re-cleaned a whole bunch of stuff as well… I am really bad at cleaning scanned raws, I don’t quite get the technique, and I been criticized (by a retranslation group lol) that my cleans are ugly… It really bothers me… and there are some one shots and dead series that I wanted to do and I have bits and pieces in scanned version… so, I am like, YEAH! I AM SOOOO GOING TO USE THEM! 
I have no problem with digital raws… In fact, I think I mastered it (insert proudface.jpg here) but scanned ones…yeaaaah………..

I went back to my favorite site, the godly Chocolat Vanilla Fansub’s blog for cleaning guides. And wow, they are so generous, they give a download of their cleaning steps in a photoshop action… I’M SHOOK!!! But then I face another problem…I think whoever made the action have some super computer… and wow (do people really clean ONE page with so many steps????!!!) it takes like 15 minutes for one page on my ancient computer dinosaur using the action…

Hmm…That’s not going to work…It’s going to take ages to clean a chapter and this is not including redraw times…

But, I started to go into the action and looked through each and every step and come up with my own steps…After some trial and errors, I think I sort of found a sweet spot. My scanned raws actually looks good! I was like a girl on a mission… In between natural disaster, people coming in and out of my house, hanging out, and studying, I was juggling translation and re-cleaning the chapters I cleaned 1 year ago 😀

If you’ve read my rant post about Produce48 (lol), you’ll probably have seen my 1 page teaser of the next chapter of Dear, Crazy Monster…For all those that waited a long time for this, ごめんなさい… 


See, I got a lot to rant about this manga. I love Motteke sensei very much, I don’t like brocest, I don’t like school setting for BL, and I don’t like yandere…This manga have ALL of them… I decided to translate it anyway because I wanted to be the one to translate all of sensei’s work… That’s how I started translating it in the first place…

BUT, wow… I have a really hard time as usual translating the chapters and it is not because of the reasons I stated above, but more like I hated this pair so very very much…I got so much to rant about it grrrrrrrr

The cleaning is easy, they are not challenging, but I got angry so many times with the translation, I couldn’t do it… I would translate 3 pages and then go and re-clean stuff, or translate 1 page, then go and watch hours of youtube or do something else lol…

And oh, I want to give thanks to Super Junior for sustaining me through 2 chapters of Dear, Crazy Monster translation… I had Bonamana (Super Show 5 version) on replay like some weird hypno sesh for more than a week to finish this hahaha… I’m now the master of Bonamana…

But oh yeah, I don’t want to spoil it for you guys, so I won’t rant about the manga in detail now, maybe in another post when I completed the whole series (one chapter left, I’m releasing 2 chapters at one go today-go me!). I have completely ignored the SFXs btw… lettering is so-so-so-so fast and easier when you don’t have to do SFX! 

Besides that, there’ll be one chapter of Isle of Dogs as well… the last chapter (4) will follow in a day or two. 

Also, by the way, does anybody buy Comic Yuri Hime???? I’m after a one shot in the October issue…But, I don’t read yuri (I’m just kinda obsessed with this mangaka right now) and I want to get the raws of that one shot by her, but I’m too cheap to pay 700yen for it. If you do, please contact me with your kindness (お願いします!)

To read the chapters, please head over to my online reader! Please, please, please don’t upload to aggregators! They will appear after 72 hours on those sites (unless you’re mangafox, who scrapes me with disrespect) 

P/S: If you can’t find the chapters right now, I’m currently uploading them. Check back in 5 minutes. It’s up!
