Where to start?

Post by Macromind101 on Sat Apr 20, 2013 9:01 am

Hey guys, so I've been wondering what's a good place to start the scanlations. /a/non said that he will stop after Volume 44 so should we start the scanlating at Volume 45?

I think that would be a good idea, it's no use to translate vol 44 if /a/non is going to translate that one already. It gives us also some more time to look for more helpers.

The question is if there are going to be any chapters in volume 45 that there aren't already magazine scanlations for. /a/non's translations could be used for those chapters that have already been translated. Though it would probably be polite to send /a/non an e-mail before you use his translations, if you choose to do so.

That's true, we don't know if anything has changed in the vol. For now I think vol 44 is the same as the magazine version.
I'll send him an message soon. I hope he won't mind.

We should wait with asking /a/non for permission until we know what chapters are in vol. 45.
What we should ask him right now is if he will still scan vol. 45-50, like he said in 2011 (anonscanlations.blogspot.com/2011/04/pokemon-special-ch-422-vol-38-batch.html).
/a/non sometimes ignore e-mails, so make sure that the e-mail looks professional and makes it clear that Team Special Scans is willing to take over after /a/non drops Pokémon Special.

Oh and sorry for going off on a tangent but are we also scanlating magazine releases (the ones that /a/non doesn't scanlate)? We will need scans of the RAWS though before we do anything. Should we ask Lolipiece to join since he somehow has access to scans of newly released rounds? Or whoever uploads the RAWS on JB's gallery which I'm pretty sure is Lolipiece but I may be wrong.

If we get access to unscanlated raws I'm sure we will try to scanlate it. Aren't the raws on jb2248.info only from /a/non and a few PokéSpe fans? Are we sure that Lolipiece's raw photos on tumblr / Bulbagarden Forums / Serebii Forums are actually his and not something he has found on Japanese sites? If Lolipiece has access to magazine raws I'm pretty sure that he would have sent it to /a/non already, unless he doesn't want to bend / debind his magazines. If Lolipiece can provide raws I think we should ask him to join. What do you guys think?

I'm pretty sure that unless he lives in Japan and he gets in line at a manga bookstore the day that rounds come out, he finds his scans on Japanese sites. Though since Lolipiece usually speculates what's going on when he posts pics and Coronis has to clear stuff up the next day, I don't think Lolipiece can read Japanese. But since he gets RAWS either way, I'm sure he'll be able to provide us with the necessary materials for translating.

Oh and we could also ask Coronis to join since he does the summarizing for non-Japanese audiences but I doubt he will because he has a million other things to do (I'm not even sure if he's aware of scanlation sites and whether he approves of them or not).

I don't see how Lolipiece's few random magazine photos are going to be of any help here.
I don't think that Coronis will support scanlations. Whatever you do, do not ask him via Serebii Forums or you will be punished hard by the mods there.

What we need is:
A) Somebody who lives close to a Japanese or Chinese bookstore that sells the magazines.
B) Donations to import them ourselves. I know how to import stuff from Japan, but I won't pay for the magazines or order them. I will however assist as much as possible if we at some point start importing the magazines from Japan.

Well if Lolipiece can't contribute majorly to this project then I would prefer him to not be a part of it because honestly I can live without the snark for one day.

And yeah...I don't really have much connections outside the U.S. so my powers are limited in terms of that. But I'll see what I can do.

EDIT: Um, think it's a good idea to advertise on JB's gallery that we need someone who can get a hold of RAWS scans? XD

Raw scans of what? We don't even know what volumes /a/non will scan yet and we don't know what magazines chapters /a/non will scan either. We should wait until we know for sure what we need. Then we ask JB to annouce on the main page that we need raws / funds, if he wants to, of course.

You live in the US? Perfect! Could buy the volumes for 7-10 dollars from Kinokuniya (kinokuniya.com/us/), debind them and scan them after /a/non has stopped scanning?

Well I know he said he'll stop after Volumes 45-50 but he said that two years ago and on the most recent blog he said that Volume 44 will be the last volume he'll do. He didn't make it clear what magazine rounds he'll scanlate. Other than that, your plan sounds perfect. Very Happy

And sure. I'll assume that that means starting at Volume 45.

/a/non said that he would scan, edit and translate up to vol. 44. He hasn't as far as I know said anything about if he will scan any volumes after that since his 2011 blog post. So, it could be either way, but it seems weird that he doesn't mention something that important when he has the chance in his 2013 Announcements blog post.

So either his plans haven't changed since 2011 or he changed his mind about stopping scanlations and we won't have to worry about this project for another few volumes? Hopefully it's the latter but the former seems more likely.
