Seeking support for new projects, and then some.

Idol Activities - 00779

I think I’ll do this every couple of months.

Yes, it’s another recruitment and solicitation post. If you’re interested, please read on.

LOOKING FOR TRANSLATORS (MANGA/DOUJINSHI)

We still average one book per month, and we do intend of doubling or even tripling the number of translations. In order for us to do that, we need translators. The requirements here as follows:

  • You must be fluent in Japanese
  • Translators will have the option to select which book they want to work on
  • Depending on the length of the book(s), you have at least 3-4 weeks to translate
  • You must follow our no-honorifics rule for manga translations. Go here for more of our rules and standards

Aside from the translation side of things, we acquired a 2nd cleaner/typesetter, so with them around, our cleaning processes doubled. I, SHiN, had gain some experience typesetting, so Lazy Lily has enough members to work on two books per month.

DONATIONS FOR BETTER TOOLS AND NEW PROJECTS

  • The OG Aikatsu! series will end next week and it will be replaced by a new series called Aikatsu Stars! New fans will move on to the new show and will eventually fall in love with the new characters. This also means new doujinshi and manga will show up, and we need financial help if we ever want to translate the often neglected yuri doujinshi.
  • Sakura Trick volume 6 is already available, and as far as we can tell, scans of that volume is currently non-existent. If they’re not available by the time we finished volume 5, we may end up buying the manga ourselves.
  • Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan!! OVA came out in 2014 and up until now, we were unable to find any rips. We translated the TV series and DVD specials under our old name SHiN-gx Fansubs, so we thought we’d pick this 45 minute OVA and translate it. We need donations before this happens though.
  • New scanner. Please also check this post for the rest of the info. TL;DR? Our current scanner lacks the features and we need to buy a more capable scanner. That requires a lot of money, so please help us by chipping in a few bucks.
