The old thread doesn't bump anymore and project threads get flooded with off-topic stuff (please don't do that) so here is a new one.

>> No.6247  

First, thanks to all the people who contribute scans for YP.

I have a question. Does Yuri Project have a definite logo yet? If not, are there plans of making one? If yes, is there a link to the vector?

No, there's no definite logo. I don't know of any plans either, but with our admin on walkabout that doesn't mean much.

File: borders.png -(10110 B, 268x130) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Hi YP!

I'm new to editing manga and to not write off-top in the actual thread I'll put my lame question here - what should I do with borders? I've read few guides, and only 1 guide pointed out that all borders should be redraw (even by the cost of losing some pixels of the actual image) by using the combination of Guides+Pencil Tool+Line Tool to create them. But is this necessary? I assume that visible gaps (like 1 on attachment) and corners (3) should be redraw but straights (2)?

And if yes - then by what tool? Line tool (with line from one corner to another) or more manually with brush/pencil? Or more free way - "use what looks good in the end" :D

>> No.6495  

No, redrawing frame borders isn't necessary. That's something people do for bad toilet paper scans where the borders are extremely damaged, like speed scans for weekly shounen series.

The scans here shouldn't need that. The first case in your picture should be fixed up with a bit of stamping but the second isn't really noticeable at normal resolution.

>> No.6517  

I have delayed the publication of the Risa-Miya Theater episodes pending Saluki's review of them as per >>5621. However, it has been more than two months since her last post in that thread. I have stopped work on it entirely until she can provide input, but I would like to ask for permission to publish episodes if an estimated date for her return cannot be determined. With all due respect, I do not think it would be unreasonable to do so after being made to wait for this long.

>> No.6520  

Saluki was only going to do some TLC anyway and the scripts have been vetted by a translator and a native speaker already. I don't see any reason to hold this back further an indeterminable amount of time just for that reason, especially after it already lay dormant for 2 months.

>> No.6523  

I will resume work on it as soon as possible on the grounds that she made the same decision regarding the translation of Dyed with an Angel's Petals. I hope she will understand my choice to keep working without her.

My concern is how I should publish them. My plan was to release the English version on my personal YouTube channel and also upload video files containing the English translation and the Japanese transcription that we based the translation on. How should I do these?

>> No.6529  

Not quite sure I get what you mean, do what precisely? Because I think you already know how to make mkv files with dual subtitles so I'm a bit stumped.

>> No.6532  

Where should I upload those files? Will they be added to the archive with the rest of the releases?

>> No.6533  

The on-site archive seems to be the latest casualty of Saluki's disappearance. Did you plan on hosting the videos separately on your site anyway like you do for the patches? We can just add a link to the respective post on petals garden + the direct youtube link + a mediafire mirror download to the release list. That should be more than sufficient I think.

>> No.6534  

Those are actually Google Drive links. They seem to be working again.

>> No.6535

Since the Sono Hanabira shorts have been translated, I started wondering whether someone would be interested in translating drama CDs. If anyone is interested in doing that we could make a thread or two on this board for translation projects.

So, for those interested there are quite a few drama CDs that are yuri-related.

Chatting at the Amber Teahouse has spawned a few. I know of these:

Pink Princess:

This one was distributed with a number of Yuri Hime. I've only mirrored this uplaod, and can't really remember where I found it.

White Engage:

This story came with the CE of volume 1. This upload is also merely a mirror.

Blue Christmas:

This one I couldn't find uploaded - but it was distributed with the collectors edition of the second volume of CatAT, which I bought, so if there's anyone who's interested in translating this one I could rip it.

Alongside the Blue Christmas drama CD there were three other drama CDs distributed with the CE of CatAT vol. 2 available as store-specific bonuses. If anyone could hunt them down I'll love you forever. (I might have one of those, but I also mightn't.)

There is also two The Miko's Words and the Witch's Incantations drama CDs. The first one came with the tank CE, which someone has uploaded to niconico:


The second one is... hard to find. It's called Madrigal Halloween, and was released for sale stand-alone. It's no longer available on amazon.jp, Q.Q

The CE of Fujieda Miyabi's Twinkle Saber Saber Nova usually comes with a drama CD or two. Don't know how yuri-related they are, but could perhaps be of interest. (I can rip the CDs of volume 2, 3 and 4 if there is anyone interested in translating.) There are also three stand-alone CDs, which I haven't looked around for. Only the third one is still available on amazon.jp.

...Fujieda really loves his Drama CDs.

Yuru Yuri CEs of volumes 8 and 9 came with drama CDs, which I could rip if anyone would like to translate.

CE of Love Gene Double X (Love DNA XX) vol. 1 came with a Drama CD. (Can rip if anyone wants to translate.)

There's a GIRL FRIENDS Drama CD, which I could probably buy if anyone wants to translate it. It should be more like the start of the manga than a side-story, from what I've heard.

There're plenty of Sono Hanabira drama CDs aswell.

That is what I can think of at the moment. (Yes, Yuri Danshi has a drama CD. No, I don't want to mention it.) If you know of any, or if you find uploads of any related drama CDs, please do tell.

>> No.6570  

This is funny because I was just looking up yuri drama CDs yesterday. I don't really know Japanese so some of this might be inaccurate.

Regarding honey quartet, does anyone have the raws for the rest of the chapters? There are no updates for this manga. :(

I released the first episode last night. You can download the file from http://petalsgarden.axypb.net/2013/02/28/a-kiss-for-the-petals-risa-miya-theater-01-english-translation/ and publish it here.

>> No.6641  

The wiki, homepage and archive redirects are dead. This might just be a prolonged hosting hickup but I kinda doubt it.

Since I anticipated this, I kept a (mostly) live mirror of the wiki. The release log isn't up-to-date and the scripts for most non-Sonohana games are still missing (I do have them though). No idea how long that site holds but for now it'll suffice and I keep a local backup, just in case.

It's running on a crummy freehoster right now so there's probably no mail backend to take care of that. Since I keep a local mirror and don't have to worry about vandalism, I've changed permissions so you can edit things without registration.

It's just for the interim anyway, if Saluki still hasn't shown up by the end of the month I'll get proper hosting.

Just a few tips and links I could pass around.
(It involves a LOT of reading and practice.)

First explore the site and familiarize yourself with the links ^ up there and the wiki page.

Then when you've got it down. Read the guidelines on editing manga:

Next, when you feel like you can do the job. Check the "Threads" section in the wiki and find something you would like to edit under the Need Editor section.

Then click the link to the thread of whatever manga you want to edit, assuming no one is editing it, and post a reply stating your willingness to edit said manga.

If the moderators approve you may begin editing. If you need help about what you are editing, post a reply on the same thread you asked permission on and hopefully the mods and/or other people will help you.

Well I think that's all I can think of writing right now. The more experienced editors/mods/anons can explain it better.

If there is something I missed or said wrong please feel free to add and/or correct me.

>> No.7148  


>If the moderators approve

Approval isn't necessary, if it's under the "Need Editor" heading in the thread list you can edit it. Just say that you do in the thread and if you change your mind, say so as well.

>2000 px

I mentioned it for Riko & Haru to keep it consistent with the first chapter, so far 2000 was optional. But it's probably about time to make an official switch. Myself and WP have been doing 2000 for a while now where possible, Dynasty switched too. Yuri-ism never did anything else. And there's little reason in 2013 to severely cut down on quality just to save a few MB.

>mangafox et al

That's an empty gesture at best and fighting windmills at worst; the people uploading stuff there don't read the credits, their readers don't read the credits and these sites don't have such a great reputation because they give a shit in the first place. See Citrus ch03. And to be frank, I'll be happy if most people on mangafox stay where they are instead of posting "WHEN NEX CHAPTRRS? textspeak emoticon!!1!" on Dynasty.

>> No.7749  

right. fucking hell. sometimes i get the urge to put a watermark saying 'fuck you mangafox' on every page. and most of the dynasty stuff isn't on there. so not sure how we can make it the same case for y.project.

>> No.7780  

I just read the first chapter of Watashi no Sekai wo Kousei Suru Chiri no You na Nanika by Amano Shuninta on Dynasty Scans (there entitled "the feelings we must endure") and I fell in love with it already.

Does anyone have raws for this manga? According to baka-updates, the entire volume 1 has been released, and is an ongoing series. Kawaii scans is currently translating it but idk when they'll get the next chapter out. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any raws floating in the net?

>> No.7782  


I personally really dislike that page, and knowing that stuff I've worked on contributes to pages like mangafox really irks me. And while I'd love it if we got our releases off of that page, I think someone would just upload them again. Let's face it, those people that upload don't care about us, or what we want.

Although I have to say it really bothers me.


Two volumes have actually been released, but I don't think there are raws available for this series outside of the magazine-scans, which you could hunt down if you want. Issues of Yuri Hime is usually scanned and uploaded to the internets.

>> No.7785

>> No.7786  

Can Yuri project copyright the translation ..
Why the hell do they upload projects of Yuri manga in other servers. That's what dynasty scans is there for. We could put on the credit page '"you can face court for the felony of uploading Yuri project work to other pages, I dynasty scans property" copyright Yuri project.

>> No.7787  

Your knowledge on this matter is a bit discerning to say the least. The translations posted on this site are illegal in the first place, as only the rights holder can produce a translation of a copyrighted work. I'm talking about just the text, not the raws and edited images, which are also illegal seeing as they are unauthorized copies.

You are in no position to lecture Mangafox on their practices, and I would suggest you ignore them completely. Once a release is out there, people will do what they want with it. Their uploaders might be willing to skip Yuri Project releases if you ask them nicely, but putting a note about it will not do any good.

>> No.7788  


>Can Yuri project copyright the translation ..

No. Please drop the mangafox topic, the collective time wasted on this by scanlators is enough to find a cure for cancer.

>> No.7791  

the scans we use aren't really ours.. it's copyright belongs to the manga artists/author or company where he/she belongs.
and considering that we don't really ask permission or have a license from the manga artists/author or company where he/she belongs to, we are "technically" breaking the law. I said "technically" because we are using the manga without permission or license, but we aren't profiting from it.

Bottom line even if we scanlated the manga, we don't have any rights on it whatsoever nor can we take legal action against mangafox. Unless... Mangafox actually profits from scanlation which we know they do. We can report them to the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to and ask them to take legal action. But the consequence would be shutting down all scanlation activities and groups and taking down all unlicensed manga/anthology/etc. off of the internet. Which would totally suck.

If the the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to, does take legal action, Mangafox can still negotiate with the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to. Possible result could be:

  1. Mangafox paying off the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to, to get the license for every scanlated manga. Mangafox remains free-to-read. Scanlation groups/activities unharmed.
  2. Mangafox paying off the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to, and to get the license for every scanlated manga. Mangafox becomes pay-to-read. Scanlations groups get sued and/or shut down. Which in turn would make Mangafox more profitable since they have the only copies of the scanlated mangas.
  3. All of number 2 and scanlation group members getting hunted down and sued.
  4. -Leaving this space for your imagination-

If no action is taken by the manga artist/author or company where he/she belongs to, possible results would be:

  • Us getting free manga.
  • Us not getting sued, shut down or imprisoned.
  • We will not encounter a lot of "In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at ChillingEffects.org." dialogue when we search for stuff.
  • People will not have more reasons to say that we need laws that would prevent us from doing anything on the net. (ie. SOPA and PIPA)
  • Mangafox still using scanlations without permission and profiting from it.

>Ridiculously big.

I don't think they are, but I've been toying with the idea of making a 1600 px height version alongside what stuff I edit~

Although, if the reader really wants to reduce the size of the images couldn't they do it themselves? There has to be some kind of free software that reduces the size of an image with resonable reult somewhere on the internet.

>> No.7822  

See: >>7748

The thing is, there is no reason not to have them. The increase in file size is completely negligible and if you prefer to read on 1600, you still can. Down-scaling is a technical non-issue and a decent manga reader has scaling options for a set height or width. On the other hand, if you have a display with a horizontal resolution of 1400+ (like all are nowadays) you can make use of more screen real estate if you are so inclined.

As editor, this is just a heavily endorsed recommendation for now. No one will burn your house down if you release something at 1600.

Some... "creative re-imaginings" of the last three chapters of Hana to Hoshi have started appearing on online readers, billed as official Yuri Project releases. Unless I've gone crazy, or Suzukin Kario rewrote the entire series for the tankoubons or something, the "translations" seems to bear little resemblance to the original Japanese dialogue.

>> No.9266  

Yikes, that's really painful to us who have put a lot of work into it. It seems to be based on Zero's poor translations and pre-QC versions. It's especially a low blow since we have in no way dropped this series and Phyis recently picked it up as editor. Hopefully fans will be able to show some patience and wait for our true releases.

>> No.9270  


The fake releases are, it seems, being accepted as legit. They're being included in batch downloads of the entire series. I haven't seen anyone question their validity or refer to their lack of quality (although I have seen various expressions of gratitude to Yuri Project for them).

From what I can tell they're not based on Zero's translations, they're some original, elaborate troll. I feel bad for people who think they've read the ending of Hana to Hoshi and may never go back to read the actual ending. And of course for Procyon and company who've put in the effort to the actual scanlation.

>> No.10020  

I think I'm failing to see the difference between translating a single one-shot, and one chapter of a series. Because it seems the same, except one has a continuing story.

I've edited a handful of projects here, and I've been following the board for a while. It's just that the consistent translation of a series out side of a given few is rare.

One-shots are fine and all, but readers vastly prefer series because they have more engaging plots.

>> No.10021  

>>10020 I believe it's the compromise a translator, and editor plus raw provider have towards a series and how well the audience treat it. It's the time the three or however many spend on a series and weather or not they wish to continue...one-shots tend to be easier to adjust and get out the door quickly...when doing a series is weather the group wishes to spend more time on it...its like a compromise not much people fufill..the translator might be sick or the editor vi-versa and its a commitment that the series has to be finish...and how much request we have from the audience....its weather a team works together well or they can't stand each other and wish to get it over with..or have many other projects to do....

>> No.10023  

I guess if it just comes down to people not wanting to commit to a series there's really nothing to be done.

I'll just say that as an editor I can get most chapters does with in a day or so, and I'd be willing to do pretty much any of the Tsubomi series that are not done, especially Sakana no Miru Yume, which I also have most of the raws for. I'd just need a consistent translator for it.

I'll continue with the translation, but I would hold off on editing for the moment. If we end up getting six from the Volume 2 tank, we'll probably want to use tank scans for the subsequent chapters as well.

Okay, that sounds fine.

I'm pretty interested in either Kami-sama Bakari ga Koi wo Suru, or Sougou Tovarisch. I don't really care which, I'll do what you feel like translating more.

If I may say, Tovarisch is quite easily one of the most difficult edits on the site. I wouldn't recommend it. AnonT is also the translator for that series, if they wish to continue on it.

Unless I am mistaken, Renai Manga is 100% Kawaii Scans to finish. Feel free to apply there to see if you can help out (yes, they are recruiting).

You may also want to wait for someone to take a look over your QC's first, lest you have to re-do a lot of work. Of course, this is just an opinion, and I can't be of much assistance at the moment...


Not to butt in - again, I'm really busy anyway - but if you're simply looking to get more series edited...I'm hard-pressed to think of any yuri series that wouldn't be picked up relatively quickly. The only series' that have difficulty with this are ones that have a lot of work to them. Huge SFX (Puberty Organism) or tons of pattern/line redraws (Sougou) and font changes (also Sougou) are the things to look out for.

Doing QC touch up's don't take very long, so I don't mind. There are a few touch ups I know I have to do already. But I just wanted to get a rough draft out for people who don't mind reading QC versions.

>I'm hard-pressed to think of any yuri series that wouldn't be picked up relatively quickly

Most quality groups do. They also happen to be very short on staff at the moment.

a) Due to editor interest? b) That have been posted here? (...I probably wasn't very clear, initially...)
Most series that get posted here and translated are picked up relatively quickly. Pretty sure the two I pointed out are the only [SFW] exceptions currently.


I'll pick up volume 2 when it releases (was probably going to anyway). Can give scans at that point.

Maybe, Just off hand I see a few series that have not been touched in a while. Raubritter has had a TL out for it's last chapter for like 9 months, That Flag Time series, Kase-san has also had a TL for while but no one's really done anything with it.


Maybe not, offhandedly I can think of a bunch of yuri series that have not been translated, but they have not been suggested here. Raws are also hard to find because some of them are pretty obscure.

Here's a random list I threw together.
Some notable ones are
-Minato Mirai
-Marriage Battle! (http://www.dokidokivisual.com/comics/book/index.php?cid=815)

Pretty much anything in Manga Time Kirara Miracle! is yuri relevant, but no one has been scanning those.

Also, a lot of the things Horobi no Michi were doing before their group died.

I would start threads for it, but without being able to provide the raws it seems kind of pointless.

I do believe emer plans on scanning all the new issues. If he's not interested in older ones (I'll ask him sometime), I have a vague interest in scanning them, though that's a bit in the future (and also depending on how many series get tanks).

Still, no need to rush. Tank scans will be far better quality. Canon lesbians also seem to be the target of unfortunate endings...

Not really, only found a few chapters. The series already has 4 volumes out and it's difficult finding Big Gangan raws that go back this far. My first impression is essentially "Saki with bows."

Can't say how accurate that is or how yuri-friendly the series in general turns out to be but it does have a decent amount of subtext and yuri teasing, pic related.

That's great, just wish the first series' scanlation wasn't stuck in perpetual limbo.

If not; maybe a translator would be interested in picking up something else like "Moon, World, and Stars" by Takagami Yuriko which is an ongoing series in Yuri Hime currently with seven chapters, or perhaps "Itazura Choucho" by Ayase Mana (>>8058) which a complete series that was in Comic High!.

Can anyone clarify what exactly is being said on these pages?

Murakami says カンニング at first but then uses the phrasing ズルつかった.

While the former means specifically to cheat on a test the latter can also mean "playing a trick." But when just translated as "cheat" it can also imply "to cheat on someone" which apparently the original text does not elude to.

Is there suppose to be any kind of double meaning here?

>> No.12021  

There's no double meaning in the Japanese, and there's no implication of cheating on a person in the translation either, because the context is clear it's about the test.

>> No.12022  

Well, the idea behind it is she could be saying something other than what she thinks/means. The scene is clearly trying to draw focus to something by making that text specifically larger and having a close up of her face. Plus she already knows Mortani does not like to cheat.

But, if you say there is nothing else to it I guess that it's true. Multiple other people have said the same thing. I just wanted to be sure.

Hallo, everyone.

My previous group (Trinity BAKumA) just disbanded, so I'm sorta looking for a new "host" for my personal little series for releasing the final chapters of it, if it's allowed and if any translator would be willing to help me out. The name of the series is "Otoshite Appli Girl"; it's technically a shounen, but contains shoujo-ai materials (It's been uploaded on the Dynasty Scans reader, and not by me, lol), and there are two chapters left of the original story plus an extra side story at the end. I will provide the raws, and I will do the editing on the chapters, as long as anyone translates them. It's a very silly and not particularly deep story, but it's got a special place in my heart; it's the first manga I ever provided raws for myself, that I bought on my vacation in Japan some years ago figuring I could do something with them. I figured I'd ask here first instead of just making a topic, just 'cause I want to make sure if any translator is on board with this.

(The disbanding of my group is also why I haven't worked on my Senno Knife chapter; we planned a big chapter batch for our final release so I've been fairly occupied...)

>Ah, god, you’re such a pain! Madoka!!
>Make that unenergetic girl smile! Quickly!
>Huh? H-How do I do that?

I haven't heard of any interest in those projects anyway, but I thought I'd put the word out so that my poor editor doesn't take apart tanks that somebody else is already translating.

>> No.14579  

Is there anything specific you're wondering over, or is it just generally speaking?

I don't know if there are any set standards here at YP, but there are a few useful pointers over at

The main points I go by from the site would be -

>For color images, set "Color Mode" to "Color", and "Output Resolution" to 600dpi.
>For black and white images, set "Color Mode" to "Grayscale", and "Output Resolution" to 300dpi.

Though unlike in the guide, I debind the stuff I scan to avoid having to deal with the gutter shadows.

>> No.14584  

I suggest adding this rule to the text under the comment form just below those thread links.

>> No.14585  

Scanning is pretty straightforward.

  • Put black paper/carton between the page you want to scan and the lid to avoid the other side of the page bleeding through.
  • If you don't want to debind (plenty of ways and howtos on the net for that), try to reduce gutter shadow as much as possible by putting some weight (like a few big books) on the lid and breaking the spine a bit if necessary.
  • Disable all postprocessing options the scanner software provides, especially unsharpen mask and descreening.
  • Don't save as JPEG. Safe as PNG. If your scanner software doesn't support that, save as TIFF and then batch convert those to PNG through Irfanview/XnView/ImageMagick/etc.

TIP of the day, For yp editors
Have you ever have trouble or an accident happen on a scan it was save above original and a white nasty
mark is on it or a mistake that can't be undone and good heavens you don't want to redraw again all that time invested on the redraw of that one scan
......and it feels like its the end of you, live sucks.
Editors its not the end, breath relax this
is my solution. Open up the original raw again on another Photoshop window change to rgb and drag the layer
it into the bottom layer of your edited scan the scan with the mistakes straighten up like the original original raw.
Using an eraser, erase mess up layer to reveal the bottom original raw like nothing had happen and merge layers together
using crtl+d, and you just rescue your scan edits. It always work with me. Got almost all the solutions to bad
editing days and never redraw again the same scan. Feel free to ask me email me diazdotkarina112@gmail.com

(See >>14979 for a few of the stories and http://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1Qco9-CcAAZ_tl.jpg for a few others.) Takahashi Mako, Hirao Auri, and Tsubana are some of the artists involved. The last is very interesting to me since Tsubana does Dainana Joshikai Houkou.

If there is a particular work that I'm interested in working on, under what circumstances should I refrain from creating a thread? The biggest issues I can think of are:

1) This work has already been translated, by Yuri Project or others.
2) All you can find are magazine scans some guy posted to a blogspot.

In each of these cases:
1) What is the best way to check if a work has or has not been translated yet? Is there a reliable database?
2) Are such scans acceptable? Do I create the thread with a link to the source and an archive of the relevant pages therefrom? Do I create the thread and pray for scans to descend from the heavens?

Are there any other conditions under which I should refrain from creating a thread? If so, how do I avoid violating them?

>> No.18263  

If you think a project could or should be worked on, you can create a thread for it. In case of redundancy, worst case scenario the thread can be removed. There's no prerequisite to have HQ scans or scans at all to make a thread, but if you don't have them another option would be to post it in the Request thread.

Most scanlated yuri works will be on the Dynasty Reader, probably the most complete and easily searchable database I know of. A small percentage of works will have been removed due to licensing, but if you know the scanlation title a Google search should bring it up elsewhere.

>> No.18264

Releases have decreased in numbers considerably this year - no doubt you've already noticed this, it's kinda hard not to. The reason behind this is several core staff members leaving to pursue other interests or dealing with real life priorities. This isn't unusual for a volunteer project such as this, there's always some significant turnover, but the timing and me being one of the people plagued with personal medical issues and general disinterest caused a lack of timely recruiting to the point where the site simply can't operate anymore.

While I do try to keep the lights on by dealing with technical issues as they occur, I simply have no interest on editing or handling releases anymore and neither does green. Now, what does that mean for YP? Until we've found someone capable to take over responsibility for releases there'll simply be no more releases on the home page. And if no one is willing by the end of the year, the site will cease operation entirely. If you're interested, please send a mail to phyis at yuriproject.net and we'll work something out.

Only the boards. But the hosting isn't that much of an issue, really. Just having someone who does final QC, packaging and release. And the need for someone like that doesn't go away if things get switched to the wiki unfortunately, and I'm still looking for that.

How about no final QC? So when an editor says something is to be released, an admin (like me) can make a release post.

>> No.18920  


Or like assign another admin?

>> No.18922  

I'm suggesting making the admin position low effort, because it's not getting any volunteers.

>> No.18924  


What does an admin do?

>> No.18926  

Originally, it's doing final QC for every release, which is a lot of work. I don't know what it entails exactly, but you can ask Phyis about it if you're interested (see her post above).

Since some projects are nearing completion and there is currently no admin I'm suggesting that any project's release be posted on the home page as soon as the respective editor says ready.

Anyway, I can write posts on the home page. (But not the YP Reader.) So if people agree with the above, I'll write release posts.

>> No.18927  


Okay, so I think I read the right post from Phyis. Final QC was/is supposed to be packaging and release. Release is kinda self-explanatory, but what is packaging? From what I gathered from the wiki guidelines, the pages are supposed to be renamed and zipped. Is that what packaging is? By making final qc easier, did you want to skip this step?

I signed up as editor for a project called "Ice Skating" last summer, which I then cleaned right away - but ended out putting away due to
work on "Poolside", and later on due to work upon the sequel "Rainy Holiday". I thought it might be due time do some more with the "Ice
Skating" project now, i.e. to typeset it and then send in a version to QC.

I noticed that there were a few words/SFXs that had not been translated, and I thought it might be nice to have those translated too before I started the typesetting.

I am quite positive that the project tread was listed under "IN EDITING", but now I can't find it there or any other place either.

Did the uploader withdraw the offer, or has the thread disappeared for some other reason?

Anyway, thank you. I can more or less tell what I need to know from that photo.
It's better than the jmanga at least. Though, I can see they use the same font for main text and side text.

I appreciate the help.

No it isn't. It is the complete collection, it's simply split up into two books because of course it is.

Procyon, I've started scanning and cleaning that high res Girlfriends projects I was talking about.

Would you be interested in giving the series a quick once over to check for blatant mistranslations and over localizations?

>> No.20897  

That's what I did with Saluki when we ripped JManga's Morita-san wa Mukuchi releases.

The JManga release actually had some missing floating texts if I remember right and a couple of obvious mistranslations. I don't think you'll find anything like that in 7Seas's release (I don't remember anything bad at all when I read it).

And JManga was shutting down back then, with no way to get their releases anymore. Also, Saluki and I translated the volume specials that were missing, as well. The specials were released on YP separately and the volume archives including the specials I posted on /u/.

>> No.20898  

I didn't really look all that closely while I was scanning, but there seems to be a handful of things that could use fixing.

Like that one example of using "bitch" seems pretty harsh. Japanese doesn't really use curse words as far as I know.

And some other things like

>*TL note: kanpai means "cheers"

I can fix the handful of awkward localizations myself, but I don't trust my Japanese skills to catch all mistranslations.

>> No.20904  


>Like that one example of using "bitch" seems pretty harsh. Japanese doesn't really use curse words as far as I know.

Do you mean the Japanese original for this particular phrase, or Japanese in general? Because if you're speaking in general, then you're definitely wrong. Politeness and rudeness exist in cultural context. The job of a translator is to convey the original meaning to a new audience, not to simply replace phrases with dictionary equivalent ones. If something is very rude in Japanese, it's often best translated into English by using profanity.

Words like "bitch" have many different meanings and many different uses - the way it's used in this quote is clearly meant to convey strong self-disgust. I'm not sure if it's correct here, since I don't have the original in front of me, so I can't comment on this particular instance. However, if you attempt to "correct" a translation with the mindset that no matter what the Japanese says, it's never the right choice to translate it into profanity in English, then I think you've completely missed the point of what translators are supposed to do.

If you weren't talking about Japanese in general and meant simply that this section of text doesn't merit the use of a swear word, then I apologize.

Sorry, but you're just plain wrong about everything you've said.
You're like pic related. Crunchy Roll translating "itadakimasu" as "Through the Dark Lord Amen".
The whole "transnational equivalent" nonsense just means "inaccurate".

The job of a translator is to accurately covey what the original writer said. The job of a translator is not to interject their personal views and beliefs into the translation to make it appeal to the "new audience".

It's a well know fact that actual curse words and profanity are very rare in the Japanese language. You can convey something as being rude without using curse words. It's never "best" to use them. That's just your personal bias, not what the author is actually trying to say.

Anyway, the original text is "って... やだ私何まりに嫌み言ってんの!!"
No there really was no reason to use the word "bitch" for that. It was very liberal.

Would yuri project consider requesting that all their work be taken off Dynasty. They are getting a really bad reputation for attacking both scanlators and artists.

The claim they respect scanlators, but they publicly attack anyone who requests their work not be honest on their site. And often even ignore the take down request.

This scanlator requested their work not be put on Dynasty.

They ignored that, and instead choose to start attacking the scanlator on their forums while uploading their work anyway.
The author of the doujin even requested that it be taken down, and they ignored that as well.

They say that have evidence that it was done by some boogieman they don't like, but whenever anyone asks them to show that evidence, they just ban the person instead.

This is not the first time Dynasty has attacked authors and scanlators, Phyis also knows about this.

But if all the contributors of a certain chapter want that chapter not hosted on Dynasty, I will request that chapter removed from Dynasty.

Thank you Procyon. That really means a lot to me.

I suppose I should take the time to say that in the years since I've been helping with the site, I believe no-one other than Ack has ever had their request for a take-down rejected.

You have proof right in front of that shows they are not trust worthy. Your not being reasonable at all.

Drpepperfan is a know liar who refuses to give proof for anything he says.

I will give you a first hand example right now. Watch.

Drpepperfan, ACK does not exist, it is something you made up along with Troid. Troid started attacking memembers of the scanlation community years ago. I have attached a file from the Dynasty IRC channel where Troid is openly attacking people from yuri project.

Troid also used his 4chan mod status to harass people anonymous. If you read the 4chan staff IRC logs Troid literally says he wants to "purge" people he doesn't like from the fan base.

If you have any proof at all supporting your claim that I or anyone else is "ack", post it now.

I will also note that Dynasty scans has multiple times in the past tried to steal credit for work other scanlators have done.
Here's logs and proof.

Those logs can be confirmed as true because the admin himself posted them in this thread https://dynasty-scans.com/forum/topics/6305-strike-that-reverse-it
Read the pastebin links he provided.

Also in those links he admits to harassing users and doesn't care about being fair, all he cares about is that people cow toe to him.
Note that Dynasty thread is also them attacking another scanlator for no reason

And Procyon, talk to Phyis about this. They have proof that Troid has been attacking scanlators for years, I'm sure you'll listen to them more than me.

He requests proof that people are scanlators, then attempts to steal credit for said scanlations.

>> No.20992  

I think you should change your perspective. Anyone could take any comic you or I had worked on and host it somewhere without our permission. They could change the credit page and take credit for someone else's work. And there's nothing anyone could do to make them stop. This is because the usual recourse for IP theft - a lawsuit - is denied to us. And why is it denied to us? Because we are thieves. Not only legally, but morally as well, I don't think any scanlator is in a position to get angry about having our work stolen.

Dynasty is a great place to read yuri manga, because it's where (almost) all the yuri is. When I translate something, I'd like for it to be read - that's why I'm taking the time to translate it in the first place.

Basically, even if dynasty is stealing other people's work (I find that one hard to believe) and hosting stuff without permission (I'm actually amazed at the extent of their willingness to remove stuff when asked), it doesn't matter. Readers go there who will read the stuff I translate.

>> No.20993  

The point here is that Dynasty scans is run by hypocrites, lairs, thieves, who don't think twice about attacking and harassing people.

>I find that one hard to believe

They're just bad people. They shouldn't get to be in control of the most trafficked yuri reader where they can spread misinformation, as well as lie and slander people.

>> No.20994  

I agree with this. They claim that they respect scanlators but then make this one exception just because he's someone they don't like.

>> No.20995  

And what makes it even worse is that they're claim anyone is this supposed person, even though they have no proof that person ever existed in the first place, or is the person they're currently talking about.

Drpepperfan says he has proof, but he always refuses to post it or share it. The closest he's come in "these two things kinda look the same, so they must be the same person." And then he bans anyone who points out his proof is not even close to accurate.

He thinks he's the one who's getting attacked, well, it's actually the exact opposite. If they didn't attack other people, they wouldn't have the need to defend themselves.

That's right, you don't. YP is supposed to be a collaborative platform, not a classic scanlation group where the current lead can just unilaterally decide where other people's work should be published based on some drama of the week. That's ultimately the collaborators' decision. Hence why I never actually acted against Dynasty when I had my own beef against them - which was ages ago, I might add.

Because I said from the start I don't want to share my reasons, and because the answer is just for your own benefit when I have no obligation to you, and it has absolutely no relevance to Yuri Project which this discussion should be about.

It has no relevance to YP because if Phyis or a lot of current contributors demand an admin who dislikes Dynasty, then I'll simply leave.

The discussion should also not be about "the wrongs of Dynasty" but "what should YP do about the wrongs of Dynasty". Which as it turns out, given the principals of YP, is nothing (though I gave the above option to request removal). And further posts to get some kind of reaction are just spam.

That amounts to the SAME exact thing.
That said, you have exactly ZERO reason to trust them, given the proof that has been shown in this thread.

You attack me, help them, Dynasty, attack other people (thus causing damage to the fan base as a whole), so yeah, you do kind of owe an explanation as to why you think what you think. This is obviously a case of you just lying because you have no actual reason. In criminal law, no innocent person ever takes the 5th, because they'd have no reason to. You've spent more time refusing to give your reasons than it would have taken you to give them.

The irony is that you say I'm prolonging this when you could have just ended it in a single reply by giving your reasons (which actually don't exist).

Feel free to delete these posts, I have the whole thread saved in a archive.is link. So I have all the proof I need of what a kind of person you are.

Some stuff is happening in the background as a result of Phyis's sudden passing. Her wife wasn't left with passwords and some e-mail addresses are unknown, so I'm currently working with her and NameCheap to get ownership of the yuriproject.net domain.

The hosting will stop at the next "billing cycle" (anywhere from April 18 (1 month) to March 18, 2019 (1 year), I'll try to find out when), which means the homepage and wiki will go down. The boards are hosted (webmastered) by K-zed and are fine.

Before the homepage goes down I'm thinking of switching to a smaller homepage that can be hosted on the server of the boards. At least until a new website is ready and run by a new webmaster.

For that I'll try to have a mini homepage done soon and have the domain point to that as soon as I have control.

http://wiki.yuriproject.net/status provides a list of series awaiting translation. You can use that as a starting point, but entries in that list frequently do not reflect the actual state of the series in my experience, so be sure to double-check. Alternatively, you can trawl the history for threads containing raws, with a promise to edit if upon translation, if you're lucky.

I once previously asked what the best way is to find out what's been done. I was referred to https://dynasty-scans.com/ as the most comprehensive list of scanlated series available. This, coupled with the status page from above, should give a pretty good idea of whether or not a series you want to translate has already been worked on, in whole or in part.

Unless there's a thread listing stated intentions, I don't know how it's possible to divine what people plan to do. In general, creating a thread is the way to show interest. Promises to do work if others show interest are common, as well as proof of intent by way of initial work.

>> No.21950  

Thanks for the response, though I was sort of dreading that might be the answer. The status thing seems quite outdated, with the entries I checked being years old, so I'm skeptical whether anyone is still interested in them.

>> No.21951  


If you want to translate something that you know somebody wants to edit, I'd recommend just going back through the post history until you find something where someone uploaded the raws, and someone said they'd be willing to edit.

Or you could go back and find some raws that were uploaded and just post saying you'd be willing to translate if anyone wants to edit. There are a lot of raw posted that apparently no one has worked on.

I wasn't able to acquire the yuriproject.net domain. Phyis used a lot of security and Namecheap can't legally help me or Phyis's widow further.

The domain will point to the current homepage IP and the boards IP until March 18, 2019. The homepage will go down at an unknown time. I can't find out when.

So WeatheredPeach, as new webmaster, will buy a new domain and we'll have to transition to that. For instance, the yuriproject.net link in credit pages (of future releases) will have to change, as well as on other sites like Dynasty, or people's bookmarks.

The static homepage that I made doesn't have comments, so I'm thinking of making a thread on the boards for that, that has perma-sage. I'm also thinking of switching the boards to another image board software, like NPFchan. It may be possible to merge the nsfw in with the safe board. Let me know if anyone is opposed.

That may have created a bit of a confusion, though if that is indeed the case, you're welcome to sign up for any role in any thread. http://wiki.yuriproject.net/status lists the projects by status. You may be interested in the "Translation posted in thread" (needs editor) and "No translation" (needs translation and mostly editing, too) categories as well.

This is the thread Cecile referred to. If you have any general questions, ask away here. n.n

>Any chance we could get an actual Wiki in the new domain?

There may be some. I was considering creating something else for the status tracking, though it's unclear when that'll be done. A wiki may serve other purposes, too, and would most likely be faster to set up, so I'm looking into the options.

>> No.22447  

Both the homepage and the boards work with HTTPS now. HTTP isn't redirected yet to HTTPS, though it may happen soon. Please write here if you run into any trouble while making use of HTTPS or due to any other reasons on these pages.

Thanks to k-zed working a lot with me on the HTTPS and other server configurations since last week, there is now a new wiki at wiki.yuri-project.net.


  • The syntax isn't the same as it was on the old wiki, but helper pages are available. (A somewhat more similar syntax can be chosen, too, but there is no full feature parity in either case.) The links are mostly the same.
  • I moved (and adapted) only the pages that seemed the most important and useful: (updated) Start, Guidelines, Editing Tutorial, and Project Status.
  • New pages cannot be created, and the pages aren't editable, with one exception.
  • Logged in users can edit the Project Status page. Cecile and others who might be interested, please create a user to be able to edit it, no other steps are required after that.
  • https://wiki.yuri-project.net/wiki/Project%20Status has the most recent content from http://wiki.yuriproject.net/status. You may want to take a look at http://wiki.yuriproject.net/wiki:threads too, and may use old format as inspiration. (Currently it's hard to see what is SFW and what isn't.)
  • In the future, depending on people's initiatives some restrictions may be removed. E.g. to make it possible to add back some of the old pages without assistance.
  • There is a link on the start page to the non-formatted old wiki pages. The link on the homepage will navigate to the new wiki soon if it's satisfactory. (Otherwise another engine or other solution will be found.)

Some changes are yet expected to be made to the new wiki in the near future. I would've preferred it not to have "wiki" twice in the URLs, but we ran into some technical difficulties while trying to get rid of it. It's still safe to make changes to the Project Status page in the meantime, because they won't be lost, and I'll write a notification about the expected downtime here.

If you'd rather convey a request or issue directly, please send a mail to admin@yuri-project.net. (If you ask, I'll send a mail about when the wiki won't be in service.)

Sorry for the length and all the details. Kinda tired and annoyed after dealing with the mentioned technical issue for several hours...

The wiki's looks are very close to the default, though it's our own theme based on that and it already contains a few little changes. If someone would like to work on it, let me know. n.n

It's working again after a restart. (It seems something went wrong when it tried to process when the change happened. I'll try figuring out what, but in the meantime let's see if it happens again, so feel free to keep working on it.) Sorry for the inconvenience. -.-

The (relatively) good news is that there was no need to replace the content because it was saved successfully. Thanks for the effort and sorry again.

The wiki maintenance is over. Since it went live over a hundred users have been registered. While I'm optimistic they are all real, it's suspicious. For this reason a very simple (text) CAPTCHA has been added. You need to pass it to register or edit a page.

I'll either create a group in the future for known page editors or find a way to keep it only for new user registration, to spare you from having to deal with it all the time if it's too annoying.

Since most of those users may be fake, I plan to remove them at some point. Those who edited the Project Status page will obviously remain, as well as any I can recognize. If you didn't edit that page but would like to keep your wiki user, please send a mail to admin@yuri-project.net with your user name from the address you registered with, please! (Otherwise you'll just have to register again.)

The unidentified users will be removed a week from now.

  • All unrecognized users have been removed. (If you can't log in, please either register again or ask for it to be restored.)
  • From now on it's possible to reset forgotten passwords and to subscribe to page changes. Mails will be sent to the address you registered with, or what you change it to in Settings → Preferences.

After saving a change, the confirmation message contains the list of users notifications have been sent to (e.g. "Notifications sent to: Kiena"). If any of you – as editors or subscribers – don't like this then I can remove it in the future.

>> No.22896  

Ah, sorry about the bit of confusion, I tend to operate entirely off of mobile so I'm not too articulate. The wiki pages are great resources for myself, both for Tsubomi and for getting a general feel of the magazines, so I was just making sure they weren't going to be lost to the ether when the old site closes down. I'll update and maintain the Tsubomi pages (I have an excel spreadsheet that's tracking a lot of the same information already) and then do the same for the others when I have some time.

I'd love to get some modern magazines up there at some point, like Galette, but that would be a bigger endeavor since I don't really know any Japanese.

Thanks so much to both of you! It means a lot!

Do you have any larger plans for the wiki? I've been collecting a lot of scanlation resources and guides for setting up the Tsubomi group if those are something you'd be interested in.

Also also, would you be interested, at some time in the future, in a Trello board to track your projects? I can send you ours if you want to see how it looks (though, there aren't many projects in process right now). Not that I have time to set one up right now >_>

>> No.22899  

The wiki will be down from 5:30 PM UTC for at most half an hour. Then I'll update the manga pages to make use of what will have gotten added during maintenance.

Losing them completely should never have been an option. We have copies of them, and the raw version of all the old wiki pages are also available through a link on the new wiki's start page.

They are certainly less accessible in that form, but the main focus before any of the wiki pages is to bring back all the old posts that aren't yet on the new homepage. Procyon and I don't have any larger plans for the wiki, but pages requested for any reasonable purpose will be created.


One of the reasons we don't have bigger plans for the wiki is that we're thinking about adding a new status page, that'd get some data from the boards, if possible. It'll take time we don't have too much of, though. I already mentioned Trello as an option after seeing it being used both by scanlation groups and others. I'd be interested in what yours is like and what it's capable of.

Multiball, since you did QC, I have a question about the cat. I'm curious about the translation choice. Since mike is a common Japanese name for a cat, was it thought that it is its actual name being katakana (?)

>> No.23976  


The cat's original name was written ミケ in the original. I didn't try to change Piranhaplant's translation to "Mikay" because "Mike" is a common English name, often used as a nickname for "Micheal." Rendering ミケ as "Mike" might lead readers to read the cat's as though it were pronounced like the English name, when that doesn't match the cat's name in the original. (It wasn't マイク, the standard Japanese adaptation of the English "Mike" or "mic.") "Mikay" transliterates the pronunciation of the name more unambiguously than a rigid adherance to Hepburn would.
The fact that the name is surrounded by English, and not other transliterated Japanese words, would prime most readers to assume the マイク pronunciation, because that's what's most familiar in an Anglophone context. In my mind, this further justifies the non-standard transliteration "Mikay" for the purpose of preservation and disambiguation.

I assume that's why Piranhaplant did it in the first place, but I never asked, so I can't be certain. If you'd like to ask directly, there's contact information available on Piranhaplant's blog, https://piranhaplant1.blogspot.com/ .

I'd recommend getting some Japanese language textbooks and going through them. If you're a native English speaker, I'd recommend the Genki series of books, since that's what I used. http://genki.japantimes.co.jp/index_en
Otherwise, it might be best to find textbooks for your native language. It's very important to learn the basics of the language, and language textbooks are good for that. At a bare minimum, you need to know:
1) all the kana
2) the basic particles: は、が、を、の、に、へ、から、より、と etc
3) verb forms: ichidan and godan forms for present, past, negatives, te-forms, causative, passive, potential, and combinations thereof. Basically everything on this chart https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/68/AMB_Japanese_Verbs.pdf
4) adjectives: i-adjectives and na-adjectives
5) quotation and discourse
6) attributive verbs and sentence order
7) some kanji. Because of handwriting recognition, multi-radical search, and OCR, it's not super critical to learn to recognize all the kanji on sight. But the more you know, the better.

Once you've mastered the fundamentals, you can improve your knowledge by practicing translating. I learned a lot by writing out translations for manga. At first I encountered a lot of grammatical forms I wasn't familiar with, so I had to check my Japanese-English grammar dictionary very frequently (note: find an actual dictionary of grammatical forms, don't just use a general-purpose dictionary for grammar). I think the most important thing at this stage is to force yourself to learn from your mistakes. Recognize when you don't know something, and put in the effort to find an answer. Never let yourself be satisfied with a guess, because then you'll just get in the habit of guessing. Since manga is a visual medium, it's often really easy to guess what the text means. That's not the same as translating, and if you rely on that too much then you'll end up making a lot of mistakes. I think we've all seen manga where the "translator" very obviously just recognized a few words in each line and extrapolated from there without actually understanding what was being said.

Anyways, I think there are enough resources available that anyone who solidly knows the basics of Japanese can put out a decent translation with enough time and effort, and you'll learn more through the process.
