Someone else would have to do the upscaling, but I can do the typesetting. Wouldn't upscaling cause cleaning issues?

I gave it a try a while ago and I couldn't see any cleaning issues. All that needs to be done is to resize it to 1200 pixels in height and adjust the typesetting and it should be good. I'll finish cleaning the title page when I have time to.

I'm happy to fix the typesetting, but someone else would have to do the upscaling. By the way, what's gonna happen with the team now that we aren't getting any raws?

Ok, ask Ardaal, but I don't see what's so hard with resizing the scans to 1200p. It literally takes three mouse clicks.

We scanlate up to volume 44 and if we have no funds to get debound magazine RAWs, I know two persons who can supply us with non-debound RAWs for free. But, non-debound RAWs are a lot harder and more time consuming to clean.
It's also a good opportunity to take on other Pokémon manga while waiting for funds.

I'm not very good with the resize tool, but I can try.

Edit: Resized. They don't look quite as bad as I thought they would. I'll fix the typesetting later.

A buddy of mine found this photo of the title page. Ardaal, do you think you could clean it?


Here's how far I got with the old photo, if anyone is interested:
Spoiler:


(I've been told that it looks badly stretched and warped.
The next step would have been to use Spot Healing Brush Tool to try to remove the Chinese text.)

The problem with cleaning this is the text of course. Even if you blurred that part, it still wouldn't look natural with all the details of original pic gone. The only option is to redraw those parts which is just too hard and might not be possible... even if possible, simply it'd be too much a trouble, even to me who could work a whole day on something x.x'
Anyway, another might-be-possible option would be putting english text on chinese to hide the chinese.

I'll try... not sure how much I can do...

And a  little problem with the translation.

"Right side of page:
A start of a new Pokéspe arc!"

^ The white chinese in the right I guess?
What's to be in the black box in top right corner then?

"Left side of page:
The overlapping words!
The resonating longings!
The story of the full-spirited Unova region after two years!"
^ The sentences are from left to right? How are they to be written in English? Vertically?
I mean like...
The
overlapping
words!
Or should "The overlapping words!" sentence be rotated to be made vertically?

"Bottom left: Story / Hidenori Kusaka"
^ What's in the white font above them? And should the [ ] stay?

Yeah.

That's nothing actually, just them promoting readers to go visit their website.

Well, in the Japanese and Chinese manga, everything's from right to left, and is read vertically. So, for English, you can do whichever way, I suppose.

The white font is actually furigana, simply, how to pronounce the kanjis in Japanese. If you notice inside the original bubble boxes in Japanese mangas, there are small characters next to kanji, that's furigana. So you can just ignore it.
[ ], well it's not a main problem, you can add it if you want.

I finally got around to QCing the title page now. Sorry for the long wait.

"A start of a new PokeSpe arc!" <-- Change "ark" to "arc". Change PokeSpe to PokéSpe with the accented e. By the way, wouldn't it look better and closer to the original if it was black text on a white area instead of the opposite?
Why are you using Times New Roman? Do you think it fits better? We usually use Anime Ace 2.0 BB. However, it does look quite nice for the "Black 2 White 2" part, in my opinion.
Grayscale a transparent version of the Pokémon logo instead of typing out Pokémon for the Pokémon Special logo on the top of the page.
The black box in the top right corner looks weird when empty. I suggest that you typeset it even if it's just a promotion for Shogakukan and Netkun's sites. I'll send an e-mail to zorua and ask him for a translation.

I've marked out some text here that I was wondering if you could remove:

It -is- white text on dark area in the original o.o'

Couldn't find any fitting font for it tbh, any suggestion?

Nope, it's white text in the Chinese scanlation. You can see the original black text under the added white text if you look closely.

Does Anime Ace 2.0 BB fit?

Anime Ace was the first I tried, Times New Roman fits better than that.

It's been really quiet around here. Are we making any progress? Happy Holidays, by the way.

I don't know. Nobody has sent me anything recently. I'm waiting for people to send in their work.
Ardaal has said that his computer is broke, so someone else will probably have to finish cleaning the title page of Pokémon Special B2W2 c01.
