We recently ordered this book and it should arrive in a week (hopefully), so we’re very close in translating something official for once. Are we gonna jump in and translate the official Aikatsu! manga right away? Depends.
In case you didn’t know, scanning pages is very difficult, time-consuming and painful. You have to heat the book’s spine with a hair dryer to melt the glue, peel off the pages, and literally destroy the book. After that we scan each page and send them to someone for cleaning.
If you ask me, I can’t be assed to destroy a book and not end up using it right away. I made this poll for this reason. Which do you prefer more? The official manga (Ichigo in America story) or fan-fiction (doujinshi)? Please cast your votes now.
