B2W2 chapters

Post by zorua on Thu Aug 29, 2013 11:57 pm

So, basically I've started on translating the first chapter of the b2w2 arc. I'm translating it from Chinese to English though, because I can't find a site that hosts the Japanese raws.
Link to the Chinese raws: http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2444579739
And does anyone has an idea if the prologue chapter about Hugh has been translated?

I know this one only...
http://jb2448.info/Magazine_Scans/Pokemon_Special_BW2_Prologue

And Serebii does consider it as chapter 00 (VS Deino) I think... http://www.serebii.net/manga/b2w2/000.shtml

But I might be wrong as I didn't read it :/

*Checks the Baidu link *
Eww, camrip! I don't know about this. Is it possible to get decent results from those photos? I mean, we should have some quality standards, but this is a chapter that many want to read though.

yea, actually the quality's not quite good.
I'm translating it first so people can have a read through of what's happening. Then later if a decent quality has come out, we can make a complete scanlation

'Decent' - that's a matter of opinion, but I'd say no. Apart from basic cleaning (color, level/contrast and text) the time you'd have to spent on it isn't worthwhile.

hmm, so wait until the 'decent' raws arrive? I'm not complaining or anything, though
btw, I've finished the translation.

^ And I have finished cleaning the first page (cleaning for the first time xD)... and some is right... the extra time this requires for the bad bending is huge... not worth it if we can get a better raw x.x'

Hey it would be great if you could translate that. That's the chapters I am waiting for. The quality does not matter to me. I can even help you cleaning. (I am used to programs like Gimp and I can change the brightness f.ex. Even though I can't use Photoshop to clean the text on f.ex. the left side of page 1.)
Yes I really want that chapter XD Or maybe you could just post your translations somehow? :3 If you really don't want to work with these raws.

I had already translated it, if you want the translations, make a google acc pm me your email add, then help ardaal in cleaning.
But as mangareader X said, we should really wait for better raws though.

Ardaal's cleaned pages look great. If the rest of the pages look like that I'd say that we can release it.

I don't know. Most likely until the volume is released unless we import the magazine ourselves.
I know some people who could maybe get the magazine, debind it and scan it (assuming that we know what magazine it is from, the magazine is still being sold and that we have some $$ to give to the RAW provider.) I haven't talked with the guy who seemed like the best option in months, so I don't know if his offer still stands. He only wanted money for buying magazines and he would debind and scan for free.

Btw, someone see the 15th page I just uploaded... I am a bit confuzzled with it x.x'

- Does Trapinch look like that or am I supposed to remove the grey dots from Trapinch's head and body and make it complete white?

- Do the first 2 panels look bad compared to other panels and pages? Though I doubt I can do anything more about it :/

- And those signs or letters or whatever in 2nd panel... are they supposed to be cleaned too and type-set? x.x'

I am not sure if that's chinese letter or just weird signs xD
And removing them and making them look not ew will be hard t.t

yeah trapinch looks like that
the letters in the second panel are SFXs, so there's no need to clean it

Btw, what to do about that? Is it considered third page or not a page at all?
And is anyone QC'ing or typesetting this?
Who are in this project? xD

Someone check out page 12 please and assure if it is alright or needs something to be edited?
This one was kinda tricky and I am not sure if I haven't messed up and did it right...
Also try seeing the RAW for better comparison may be... in case I deleted something important or some detail :/

12a.png, right? Some of the speech bubbles arent white, the best example is the last panel. The white cleaned rectangle is quite noticeable.

Don't you mean 17a for that? Or 12a's 4th panel? Cuz I can't find any prob in 12a's last panel :/
And what do you mean by white cleaned rectangle? .-.

Yes, there are, but I'm pretty busy right now, so I'll might have a thorough look for such 'darker' gray spots the week after next. Maybe you could change your display settings to be able to see such issues better?
