Hello there, I'm raDar. You can call me Rad, or RD. I'm warning you I suck at intros.

Well, I first loved watching anime since I was a kid. The first anime I fell in love with (as far as I can remember) is Mojacko which is based on a manga from Fujiko Fujio F etitled (Bokua, if I'm not mistaken). Now, I seldom watch anime anymore since I've been exposed to mangas. I'm a sucker of One Piece. It's been the core of my love for manga (especially shonen). Other than here, I'm also a resident poster in apforums.net...

Right now, I'm part of a scanlation group and acts as a typesetter and trains as a cleaner.

Hope to get along with you all. O0

If ever you were annoyed or anything to this thread, kindly report Iceiphoenix. (ಠ益ಠ)

Apforums :lmao that place is where I usually get my laugh and my hate for other manga besides one piece..
:oh
Anyway, welcome to MH. So you're in the same group as icei?
What's your fav anime?
Fav one piece character?

Yeah, APF is a great place if you want to hate/troll a series. Do you have an account there?



Anyway, welcome to MH. So you're in the same group as icei?

Nah, I can't take working with that missy.


What's your fav anime?
If it comes to series, I guess I'll go with Gintama. If it's movies, ofcourse I'll go with Studio Ghibli films. :3



Fav one piece character?

You know what? There's so many likable characters in OP so this is a hard question for me but if I am to choose, its between Franky and Usopp (especially Fatsopp).

:woo another tama fan, have you been following it and are you like me, who watches the anime only?
Or do you read it too?

Franky is next to luffy and brook for me :tem
How do you find the fishman island flashbacks?

Hi there, raDar! Welcome to MH, have a wonderful stay. :)

Ah, so you're part of CWL too? I'm sorry if I hadn't noticed that, been absent from CWL for a very long time now. ^^"

raDar
June 05, 2011, 10:20 AM
Anyway, questions for raDar:

What made you join CWL? What made you join MH?

Mainly because of SA, their first project. And because I want to venture in the scanlation industry.


How many pages do you think you've typesetted by now?
Hmmm, only a few. I can safely say its more than 100 pages but less than 250.


Favourite colour?
Don't have any. But I always prefer blue.


Yeh my user over there have 225 added to it but im mostly
lurking and laughing at trolls :lmao
Hmm, I'll hunt you. You could drop a message on my profile there. I'll pm you my user if ever you're interested. lol



So I heard, shes icei sensei now? :3c
Truth hurts, yes.



:woo another tama fan, have you been following it and are you like me, who watches the anime only?
Or do you read it too?
I think we're the same. Just watched the anime but I'm still catching up with the new season so I'm not up to date.


How do you find the fishman island flashbacks?
I think its okay. The only problem atleast for me was it was a bit rushed. Things happened without detailed explanations, but I think Oda's just trying to show what Jinbe (the one telling the flashback) really knew about those past couple of decades.

You're welcome. I hope so too. Oh, well, I guess I can stay around when holidays come. But I'm an editor (=proofreader) in a Taiwanese drama fansub group as well, and the script is way longer than manga, so I'll see to it later. :P

How are you enjoying your work at CWL now? Is Icei a good senpai? *cough*

Ooh, that's why. I'll be waiting there. ^^

Right now, everybody's mia so its just me and another TSer/cleaner who does the work. Noe, is quite busy too so she's behind the script.


Is Icei a good senpai? *cough*

For now, the main reason is university. Too busy. Once I'm on holiday, everything will be sorted easier. :D

Ah, I see. Haha, Noe-chan loves to work behind the scenes indeed, providing best translations~ ^__^

If you want to know how the story goes, you can use Gintama as a measuring tape. It's much similar.

Eh, Apple products... I only have an iPod Classic so I can't really say anything (I want to own a Mac though, TAT).

I think its great. And yet Apple is one selfish derp (which makes them cool), if you know what I mean.

How do you find Gintoki?
Who's your fav character in gintama?
He's my fav male character in the entire world of animanga so far :3c

I think its okay. The only problem atleast for me was it was a bit rushed. Things happened without detailed explanations, but I think Oda's just trying to show what Jinbe (the one telling the flashback) really knew about those past couple of decades.
There's quite alot of people complaining that it is too long but I believe it is necessary for what lays ahead.
And yeah I agree with what you said about Jinbe, now everything about him is cleared up..well almost :oh
Do you think he'll join the SHs? A lot of people have been assuming that.
Although, I wonder if Hodi is fit to be main big bad in this arc.

I really like Gin too. I like the three of them. But my favorite will be Kagura. Especially with the voice of her seiyu.

Yeah, for me it really is a bit rushed, especially Tiger's part. Hmm, actually I'm a "Jinbe-4-nakama" supporter but I don't expect too much, knowing Oda's way to handle surprises. But the last two chapters had all Shirahoshi-4-nakama supporters go bananas so right now, I really don't know. :x

About Hodi, I don't think the SH will be the ones to pwn him and his crew but rather Fukaboshi. So I believe someone bigger is due to appear soon.

I'm in college, my 4th year to be exact. I dunno, but here you get to see the same faces you had last semester so nothing to be excited about. And I often hang out with my classmates during the summer vacation.

phio_chan
June 07, 2011, 10:06 AM
I see. It would be the same for me too. Soon I'll finish my first year at university, wow. It feels so fast. Like you, I'll stick with same people all the year, and although it's pretty fun, it could be boring as well. But what made me not excited on the beginning of new semester is because I usually find something interesting to do near the end of the holiday and I'm sad that it has to end. =___=

raDar
June 08, 2011, 10:16 AM
Haha, now that you said that... I ventured in joining a scanlation group 1 month before my new semester comes. And right now it started so I'm sad I won't be very active as much as I had for the last couple of weeks. TAT

It's weird that my classmates now are the ones from the other class last year. Just a couple of my old friends and classmates have stayed. Curse the first come first serve enrollment policy... Oh well, I think I'll just try to adapt for the coming weeks.

Zeltrax
June 08, 2011, 11:19 PM
You like Shinpachi :s?
Rie Kugimiya is my favourite female seiyuu just because she did Taiga :XD
and also Tsundere queen as they call her.

So I believe someone bigger is due to appear soon.
I hope so but there's no foreshadowing of that someone yet or if any I missed it.
For me, I believe no one will be joining the SH yet.

raDar
June 09, 2011, 06:58 AM
You like Shinpachi :s?
Yes. Isn't he likeable?



Rie Kugimiya is my favourite female seiyuu just because she did Taiga :XD
and also Tsundere queen as they call her.
Taiga as in Tora Dora?? Really? I never distinguished it.

So you're a Tora Dora fanatic? If so, then recommend a series which is like Tora Dora's romance 'coz I don't know why (I'm not into LS animes) but Tora Dora is an unforgettable series for me. It's just, the feeling of watching it, not too moe, not too cheesy, just perfectly blended for my appetite. >.<


I hope so but there's no foreshadowing of that someone yet or if any I missed it.

Yeah, there's none. But we really don't know.

I will really be surprised if no one joins the SH after this arc. If there's the rightest moment for a mer/fishfolk to joing Luffy's crew, it is after this arc. And this arc just showed SH's weaknesses when it comes to underwater.

Zeltrax
June 09, 2011, 07:12 AM
Well I don't pay shinpachi that much attention but I guess his role as the straight man is also important.


yeah, putting her tsundere roles aside she also have a wide range of roles..like Happy from ft and alphonse from fma. She's that awesome :lmao
Toradora is one of my fav.
not really a fanatic, I just really loved it back then.

If you're looking for something similar to toradora, I recommend lovely complex..but theres no harem or triangle relationships there.
Its one of the best romance anime out there imo.
Or if you haven't already, Clannad. But the romance there starts later in the story.


Like you I also hope for someone joining in this arc but I don't get the vibes from Shirahoshi or Jinbei...yet. But I guess you may be right about Jinbei though.

Clannad, really? It's a hardcore harem right? With very moe-looking characters. My friend really recommended it for me a long time ago, said that it will make me have manly tears. But never had picked it up, maybe lack of motivation. I'll look for that Lovely Complex though. Thanks.


Like you I also hope for someone joining in this arc but I don't get the vibes from Shirahoshi or Jinbei...yet. But I guess you may be right about Jinbei though.
Let us just see. I'll be damned if a character other than those two will join. As others said, might be Hyozou.

Aren't you an impatient one, Ice? Well, I finished cleaning Ikkyuu until the latest chapter (4) but the translation is just up to chapter 2 (we need translators!!) so there might be a double release this Friday. SA, on the other hand, might have a triple release again, but the you will notice the cleans in each chapter is very inconsistent.

There, now give me cookies. :cookiestare

Tom-san, saw them over at the discussion thread.
But then maybe its den.
Of course they were just joking :rofl , but a major villain popping up of next chapter is unlike oda.
Oh and nice sig..not sure about the avy tho.

raDar
June 13, 2011, 07:01 AM

I know alot of people at apforums does

raDar
June 13, 2011, 07:18 AM
It does. I'm crossing my fingers its not just a right-in-front-of-your-face twist.

Eh, I stopped watching when right at the start of the flashback. Didn't have that much time. Why?

Zeltrax
June 13, 2011, 07:26 AM
Toei handled it well, better than how they handled the war.
Sabo VA's is naruto and the 2 episodes filler were great, the flashback is good.
For me it gave me the old one piece kindda feeling.
Hard for it to describe.

raDar
June 13, 2011, 07:40 AM
Yes, I lol'd when it was said that Naruto's VA is doing Sabo. You know AP. Maybe I should catch up, I'll download Yibis releases right away. Is it near its ending?

Zeltrax
June 13, 2011, 07:48 AM
Yeah. Around 2 to 3 episodes left to end the flashbacks.
I wonder wat toei will do after the fb, as in how to pan things out or insert fillers :s

raDar
June 13, 2011, 07:51 AM
Yeah, I don't know if there is news in doing a new series after the flashback or just continue the current one.

raDar
June 15, 2011, 09:03 AM
Hmmmm, yeah. Isn't it that the reason they omitted ED songs is to lengthen the OP?


The new chapter of OP looks great also the cover and the spread. I'll stop here since you don't follow spoilers. :x

Zeltrax
June 15, 2011, 06:58 PM
I find it funny that only Sanji is acting oh so cool in the spread.

Isn't it that the reason they omitted ED songs is to lengthen the OP?
I think it has to do with the sunday timeslot or something.
I like 1:30 more than 2:30 for op time but since One piece is special and its not like all the ops are bad, the latest one is gold.

Read the chapter, fangasm. But I have a problem with Jinbei though.

raDar

I find it funny that only Sanji is acting oh so cool in the spread.

I love the foreshadowing of the colorspread. Especially Robin's. Really hope she can do a clone fleur of herself.

Yeah, I dig Amuro Namie's electronic pop song. A bit crossing the line, but great.

It seems he's reason is very narrow but I believe Oda can handle this thing better.

Hellooo, dear raDar! o/

Great job with SA, man! CWL has nearly caught up! :amuse Can't wait for more Ikkyuu though! Keep up the good work! :cheerbunny Or I will kick you.

raDar
June 20, 2011, 05:10 AM
Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!!!!!! Haven't heard from you for a while!!!!:wtf

Yeah, we're so close to cathcing up but Noe got sick and is still recovering.:(


Btw, Heid told me to join Muda and now I'm a trainee. A shame you're not there anymore.:crying


Nice make-over tho..

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 05:19 AM
Haha yeah, I've been busy here and there. :XD

Aww, I hope she gets well as soon as possible! :(

Ohh, I see. :tem I hope you can learn heaps more and polish up your skills there! And most of all, I hope you have fun there as well! :XD I hope you can participate with MRI projects soon. :p You can typeset your beloved Magico! :XD Yeaah, I had to resign from all of the groups that I was in except for one (IEM) because of school... >_>

raDar
June 20, 2011, 05:27 AM
It's my goal to work with you tho I'm kind of intimidated to RH people since they're like the most strict among the three.

Yeah, I heard from Heid your unofficial leave.

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 05:49 AM
Oh yeah, did you pick up anything from chapter 10? :o And haha, I think you're overestimating me here. :XD
Mhm, you're right about Red Hawk, they are like QCing nazis over there! :XD But it's totally worth the QCing trouble in the end, because of the quailty. :thumbs

Ahh... I should go dig out that transfer code thingy... :oh

raDar
June 20, 2011, 05:54 AM
Nah, I just gave them your TS then the next thing I knew, it has been released. XD

I'm still scared of RH... :wtf

What are you digging??

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 06:00 AM
Haha, ok then. :XD I also noticed that you guys adopted a font that I used in ch 10 for the box text... :o

But they're awesome, and that's all that matters. :thumbs

Ahh, when they switched forums, I already had an account on the old one, so they emailed a code for the new one so I keep all my info and data and so that I didn't need to create a new account... Need to find it... >_>

raDar
June 20, 2011, 06:05 AM
Yeah, that's how we look up on your TSing ability. lol

Should we go back using Badaboom in shouts? I'm still very confused. :s

Oooh, go find it. I still see your name in the Retired Staffs.

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 06:12 AM
Aww, thank you! :hug But to put it realistically, I'm still nowhere as good as some awesomely good TSers like my senpai at IEM, the higher-ups RH and just a lot of other experienced typesetters. :XD I've only been typesetting for about 5-6 months, after all. :s

Badaboom for what? SA or Ikkyuu? In my opinion, Badaboom is pretty hard to read if there's a huge hunk of text... The font you guys are using right now for SA is good to read, but it doesn't really give that sense of shouting... :oh

I will, I will. :XD

raDar
June 20, 2011, 06:18 AM
Yeah, who by the way is the first-in-command in IEM? Avalonsayame? So there's like itamaesan/Vaelis of IEM? XD

Yeah, that's my main prob too. If it's badaboom, it becomes hard to read when there's a lot of text while the one we're using now doesn't give much impact especially in saying techniques. Help.. :(

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 06:35 AM
No, the first-in-command would be our founder and boss, Hash. He's away due to real life and the second-in-command is Devilsadvocate. He's been away due to real life as well, but he's coming back soon. :thumbs After Hash and Devy, it would be the Manga Team Elite members. They are Avalonsayame, Aftershocked, Lanie, Eliard and myself. ^^ I would say that Avalonsayame and Aftershocked have the most power out of the elites, since they became elite before the rest of us. Lanie has been part of the team for a while now, and she can do basically all of the scanlating jobs from raw providing, translating, cleaning, proofreading and typesetting. :XD Everyone holds her in high regard and her judgement and opinion is well respected. :nod As for Eliard and I, we were only promoted last week, so we're still getting used to our new position. :p

Hmm... as for shouting fonts... If that's the case, I would recommend maybe Blambot Pro, Yard Sale, Yellowjacket, Zap Raygun or Zud Juice... If they don't really like them, I'm all out of ideas. :XD Or you could just use CCZoinks. I've been using that a lot, and it's given me no problem with huge chunks of text. :p

raDar
June 20, 2011, 06:45 AM
Ohh, so you're one of the higher-ups now, eh? Congratssssss!!!:mootastic Haven't visited IES for a while now. That Lanie is awesome-walking-scanlation-group. Avalonsayame is the one who comes to my mind when its IEM scanlators. I dunno why. lol Oh, I always see Aftershocked too.

Hmm, I'll try all those. So allcaps CCZoinks?

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 06:52 AM
Haha, thank you! :hug
Mhm, and since I'm gonna learn cleaning in the holidays, and if we use Chinese raws, I might try out for translating... :o Wow, I wonder why. :o Haha yeah, well Avs and Afs are quite active on the IES forums. :XD

Yep, all caps! It doesn't look nice if it's not. :neutral

raDar
June 20, 2011, 07:02 AM
I find it reaaally weird that IEM strictly wants all the TS capitalized while ita in muda doesn't.

And I checked one of the TS application in IES... lol You all are sooooooooo strict. Makes me wanna cry. lolol

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 07:10 AM
Well, boss' rules. Can't do anything about it. :p

Haha, that's mainly because of Aftershocked. :p She's a centering nazi and she strives for perfect text arrangement. :XD (Personally, I think that she's the best TSer in IEM. :D) According to others, apparently I'm like a mini version of her. :lmao

Eh, well we want quality typesetters with IEM quality whipped into them! :thumbs

Oh yeah, another thing I've noticed about CWL typesetting... You guys take the diamond rule too seriously sometimes. If the last word of a chunk of text is longer than the others and it won't make a diamond shape, you don't have to split it to make it diamond shaped. Frankly, it's better to avoid any splits rather than having perfect diamond shaped text chunks. :XD And another thing... the diamond shape of the typesetting looks a bit forced sometimes... Or maybe that's just me. >_>

raDar
June 20, 2011, 07:14 AM
Oooh, Ice. Your too high to reach now. lol

Yeah, I haven't told Blazin about that issue but I myself has resolved that by practicing and all.:hip

I'll be doing a release project in muda. :o

Iceiphoenix

You go do that. :XD

And ohhh, what kind of project? Or is this information top secret? :shifty

raDar
June 20, 2011, 07:39 AM
Nah, its an old project I think. Gotta do half of the monthly chapter. Wish me luck. lol

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 07:41 AM
Ohh, good luck! Hey, that's not too bad. :XD It's just basically one whole weekly chapter! I'm sure you can manage that. :p

raDar
June 20, 2011, 07:55 AM
Heh, My redrawing skills will be tested.:hip

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 08:03 AM
Do you want some practice pages I've collected? Every time I typeset something and I come across a challenging redraw, I always keep it incase someone wants a practice. :XD

raDar
June 20, 2011, 08:05 AM
Sure, I want one. :p

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 08:26 AM
Here's one~ Have fun. :p Just redraw out the curved text and the slanted black text on the left side. Don't worry about the box, the mangaka names or the title logo. :thumbs Try and do it as fast as you can and tell me your time. :XD

http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/5249/dd910203.jpg

I also have others of varying difficulty, if you want. :D

raDar
June 20, 2011, 08:30 AM
Whaa--- that's difficult. Do you know that I hate redrawing parts that either have grays or patterns? Damn you, Ice.

I'll try to di this tomorrow or the day after that. Don't worry, I won't start now and time later. I'll do it in one session and tell my time. >.<

Iceiphoenix
June 20, 2011, 08:35 AM
Hurrdurr~ :derp Don't complain now, this was one of the first few redraws I had to do. Didn't turn out as awesome as I wanted it to, since you could see the brush strokes. >_> But nonetheless, I finished it in the time limit I set for myself, so I was very happy. :nod

What a good and honest man you are! :clap2 You can do it! :cheerbunny

raDar
June 20, 2011, 08:39 AM

Ice, why is it that when I upload a chapter in our group, it says that the manga was already been licensed blah blah. What I'm talking about is Sengoku. Don't wanna bother an admin yet. lol

No, only mods can post the news, and you just don't post releases here at all. :oh
You can post translations though. :cookiehand

Nah, I mean news about the group. I already made one, I think followers are the only ones who will be notified tho.

Iceiphoenix
June 22, 2011, 03:57 AM

And how's the redrawing going, by the way? :3c

raDar
June 22, 2011, 03:26 PM
Oh, okay. Thanks!

I'm still not starting with the redraws, still busy with school, but after today I'll have a 4-day weekend then I'll do it.

I don't understand any of this conversation tho :headscratch
Hey radar, how do you feel about the latest chapter?

raDar
June 23, 2011, 10:26 AM
Hey Zel. Last chapter was good. Oda really having the colorspread last week and showing the new abilities this week just made me wow, dunno why. lol
Never thought that the fight won't be stopped just once. Now, I tend to believe this fight really has to have someone beaten down before it ends (obviously Jinbe). Or another major interruption happens, like VDD arriving or whatnot.

Brook's part just made me lol in many ways. I'm starting to love Brook more than I ever had. :x

How bout you?

Zeltrax
June 23, 2011, 10:33 AM
See, brook is awesome :hurr
Me? I like sanji this chapter and also how funny jinbei vs luffy was resolved.
Vdd maybe next chapter?
Alot of people dislike brook and say he hasn't done anything yet and is there for comedic relief.
I disagree :noworry
Do you have any 2nd favorite besides op?

raDar
June 24, 2011, 01:14 AM
What, you also like how Oda throws all the jokes to Sanji?? I think Oda will repay all those for some awesomeness in his fight with VDD (also calling it). Yeah, I also doesn't like Brook preTS. But I'm happy I'm starting to like him. XD

About second, I like to say its Beelzebub. Since I don't read Naruto and have dropped Bleach for a while now.

Crazy manga with a bit of everything :rofl

Yeah, it has the action I want from OP/Bleach and other battle mangas out there and has the gagness and craziness that Gintama/Sket Dance have. So its the best of both worlds.

No, I still haven't caught up with Tama. Got busy in school. TAT


jorped should visit arlongpark :shifty
Yeah, I forgot to say this but AP was also the factor I'm not motivated to read Naruto. lol

Iceiphoenix

But still congrats :lmao

Iceiphoenix

Can't you just have 4-5 fonts and just rotate them for each monster?

PM me what fonts you already have. :p

About the scanlation, I actually am starting to get active again. I'm working on this specific project from HWMN (kewl's group). I felt tired with weekly magazine raws so this time, I'm just open with editing tank raws and stuff.

How about you? It's just few weeks ago that I saw you again here in MH. Been busy?:teehee

Iceiphoenix

Ooooh, nice! I'm thinking of becoming active in the scanlating scene again as well, though I'm completely out of practice. :gwah I think I'll see how my skills are over the weekend or something... :XD What project are you working on? (Or this some kind of super secret project?? :ninja)

Ehh, yeah, kinda busy with uni. I'm just getting used to my timetable and how much work I have to put in and stuff. :XD

I just finished five years of Electronics Engineering. I still have to take my licensure though. How about you?

Ehh, I dunno if it's secret or what. It's from the author of Toriko, the series he did before Toriko. Just 3 volumes long, the title is Ring.

Goodluck with uni! Yay! Wish you the best of sleepless nights? :derp

And the icons, I just made them from an icon generator. Click the sig itself, it will direct you there. It's fun making icons out of characters, given that you're just actually limited of resources. Go try it!!

Uhm, it's about Shimabu's fictional team sport that includes some sort of a hula hoop and the aim is to shoot it through a pole. Yes, it literally is much like basketball with all the passing and defense and whatnot. It's won't be available in the near future, since kewl still haven't found the time to translate it yet with all his stuff.

But I actually just helped and finished cleaning and typesetting a volume of Doubutsu no Kuni. I don't know if you're familiar with the series though.
