Usually, you can check sharedb.info for available files (one flaw would be that having a hash info there doesn't neccessary mean the file can be completed, or that the file is authentic, unless it's being posted by a known ID).
Regarding Coppelion... I don't think any of the Share scanner did the series and uploaded there (at least not to my knowledge). There isn't any scanned tank either Vic seems to be the only one kind enough to continuously provide the raw to this series.
Ooh, a thread of your own. Very slick.
Thanks for everything, in particular for your translations, not that I don't hold RAW providers in equally worshipful regard to translators, just because I'm in the camp who haven't read a lot of the series which you provide RAWs for.
BTW... where did you learn Japanese? As you say you translate seinen manga too, then you don't need the Furigana so your reading is more than advanced....
Apart from having my parents speaking the language at home, I've had a Japanese tutor from 3~7. However, because I didn't have many same-age people to talk to in Japanese, my "pop-cultural" vocabulary is extremly limited. Same goes for certain dialects.
For me, Kanji isn't that hard (especially when you start trying to learn Chinese on your own, the Japanese Kanji pretty much pales in comparison). However, I do find it difficult to read Kanji in Japanese names without having the kanas. I don't know how some people do it, but I'm just not cut out for that kind of stuff...
If you give me a name written in Kanji but without the furigana to go with it, chances are that I'll mess it up and get one or more kanjis wrong
Yo, thanks a lot for the Rotte no Omocha raws. Honestly, I didn't think anyone would scan it, so yeah. Question: Where do you buy your raws? How much do you pay for them usually?
Instead, I have the two out of three popular Japanese P2P programs running, Share and Perfect Dark, and try to provide the latest raws that's available there to people who can't run the programs. ^^
As for the Rotte no Omocha I actually ran into it by accident
I saw your request by chance, and just figured that I could just give it a try and see if I would get lucky. I've then setup the proper trigger in Share, and input search phrase in Perfect Dark. Before long, I managed to have the first 8 chapters in magazine scans queued up for download... However, I got REALLY lucky with Perfect Dark, when I saw the the two tanks turn up in search, and they were both less than a week old.
I don't know what to call this... but it seems like you're destined to be able to get those raws I mean without you requesting it, I might've never try to look for that series. And if you have requested a month earlier, there wouldn't be anything found
Everything just sort of fall into place, and I managed to find those two for you
So this is what they call destiny. Lulz, it's most likely luck, I didn't really know the series until I started randomly surfing the web for a good ecchi manga to read and saw it on some blog site. The art looked great and it kind of reminded me of TLR. I got curious and checked MH but it wasn't on the manga list. I started searching on various sites and downloading various torrents to get raws for it but no luck (especially since jcafe is currently down I had a hard time.) So I decided to make a request on MH. But really, seeing that not much raw requests in MH were fulfilled, I didn't have any hopes up, but I was surprised on seeing some raws for it up in just a few days. Really, thanks a lot!
Although, it's too bad you're not going to scan raws anymore. I guess that's bad news for me since I always look forward to your Tora Dora scans. :C
Don't worry about those... it's also open source raw from Share
As long as that scanner remains active, Tora Dora should be fine
Seeing that no one has asked this yet... why did you ask for a "raw hunter" status while you are currently doing mostly translator tasks around here? Also this thread is in the translator forum...
(I'm a pretty inquisitive guy, huh?)
Currently, it's more or less 50-50 in terms of the amount of free time I'm devoting on these two tasks... but then again, you can always do other stuff while uploading, so it's hard to say, really, which I'm doing more.
Oh, this bit is interesting! I can never understand why shoujo fans stay clear away from any shonen forum, are they being intimidated by the hostile manner of the boys in the shonen area?
As for visiting the shoujo section... I guess I should drop in every now and then
My favorites in the three magazines I'm reading:
LaLa: Pretty much everything in there But if I have to name a few, Vampire Knight, Natsume, and Ouran are the best three, along with Kaichou wa Maid-sama as a close forth.
LaLa DX: To be honest, I didn't buy this magazine for any particular series. I mean some of them are nice, but other than Haruka Naru, the rest doesn't interest me that much (though I still read them). I bought LaLa DX mainly for the occasional special chapters of the LaLa series, Tsukuba Sakura's (author of penguin revolution) on and off series, Yoroshiku Master. They also feature works from various competitions for rookies by Hakusensha in there, and sometimes you may find the work of future hit author
Bessatsu Hana to Yume: Originally, I bought the magazine for just one series: Boku no Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari, which is the sequel of Please Save My Earth. But now, there are several other series I enjoy in there, including Otomen, Rasetsu no Hana, and Orange Chocolate. Also, as an added bonus, Glass no Kamen's latest chapters are in here as well
Raw Hunter makes you sound like indiana Jones or something (Lara Croft if you prefer) so i definitely think you should keep that title.
I am older so my thoughts on the matter may not be the same as others but I started reading manga after my son asked me to buy him Dragonball. I went through the ones he liked and then gravitated more to ones i like. Despite being male I find i read 50/50 shonen to shoujo though my favourite ones currently are shoujo.
I don't read everything I come across becuase if it doesn't grab me by the first chapter i will never look at it again.
I enjoyed the one you were translating I can't remember the name off hand now but it was a horror comedy and was really good
