Hiromu is a kid who is slow and bad in sports, although that he really wants to do sports, after a day full of failiures trying to get to a sports club, he gets to the ping pong club, in the ping pong club he meats someone named Kawazue who is the ace, and he tells Hiromu he can't join the club, because he probably failed every other club and is underestimating the ping pong club. A friend of Hiromu, called Otome who wants Hiromu to get into a club merges in the middle of the conversation and have a match against Kawazue for Hiromu joining the club, but she loses, after that, and a lot of begging, Hiromu plays against Kawazue, and if he loses, Otome becomes the ping pong club manager, he almost loses, but than he remembers he always give up and it's time to stop giving up. Then he shows wits when Kawazue was about to go, Kawazue got back to the game, just to fall for a smash counter Hiromu who never before played ping pong set up for him, and so he got a point... And entered the ping pong club :P That's the first chapter.

So if someone is interested in scanlating it, please tell me, if you want to discuss it, help my translation (as I've problems with most sport terms except basketball ^^") please do so here :P

September 22, 2006, 04:41 PM
P2 seems to be too classical for me -I mean, the poor humble guy discovers he's good at PingPong, trains very hard, and finally wins matches isn't a new idea..-, i can't find the coolness of PoT here, or the fun of ES21. It seems like a PingPong HnI to me, except that I loved HnI at first sight xD

September 26, 2006, 04:59 PM
Here is a scanlation of P2 Lets Play Ping-Pong by Zoom-Manga. Our group is still young so feel free to comment for us to improve.

LQ - Chapter 1
Here are some links:

hope you enjoy ^^.

You could posted in the main topic I opened and I would've added it to it ^^" :P

Some notes, level the black and white pages, maybe some graying will be destroyed, but it's better that way than no wait at all ^^" rename the pages, because Jump raws are numbered weirdly ^^" and the last, do a more detailed credits :P

The redrawing in the last colored page was quite nice :P (IMO)

September 26, 2006, 05:54 PM
O lol..oops about not posting in the main topic =S
and thx for the tips ^^

September 26, 2006, 11:11 PM
you need to get a proof reader, quite a few spelling mistakes, and some sentences aren't really that smooth... and the cleaning could have been better ;)

Just my two cents.

as an example:

made this one topic

ThE WoRm
September 27, 2006, 06:53 AM
Kay, by the way, I myself prefer having proofreader, as english isn't my first language ^^" so some sentences loses their smoothness and there are spelling mistakes Word doesn't give me Oo

September 27, 2006, 12:33 PM
you're talking about jojo, right? Well, to be brief, so as to not go off-topic, I understand. I have proofreaders anyway (myself included) so it would have happened somewhere down the line.

ThE WoRm
September 28, 2006, 08:56 AM
I talked about jojo? Really? XDDDDDDD
I thought I talked generally (which I really did ^^")

September 28, 2006, 01:45 PM
oh, that came out of no where, which is why i tried to give it some context.

October 06, 2006, 01:05 PM
Well, I was suppose to put chapter 2 translation by now ^^" But I'm gonna put the japanese text to it, so it'll be in a different format, when I'll finish it (tomorrow) I'll post it up, but this chapter is A harder or B I'm not used to writting the japanese text what takes more time, which will be weird Oo[br]Posted on: September 30, 2006, 02:44:48 AM_________________________________________________Well, here is the translation to 2, it is with the japanese text, so I'll be glad if some other translator will go over it so it won't go to waste ;;

here it is:
http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=9208.0[br]Posted on: September 30, 2006, 07:23:05 PM_________________________________________________Ah, no one scanlates this piece anymore? I changed the topic now ^^" Anyway, I translated chapter 3, someone, please come and reply ;;

You can get chapter 3 on my subforums, and there is a link up there

October 06, 2006, 01:41 PM
wasnt Zoom-Manga doing this ??? they stopped??

ThE WoRm
October 06, 2006, 02:43 PM
Don't know, they disappeared, didn't hear anything from them ^^" If you're alive, please post in here :P

October 06, 2006, 03:50 PM
Oh..our group just has a heavy school workload...but over this weekend we'll be done..sry for the delay..dun wry..we're continuing lol

ThE WoRm
October 06, 2006, 04:25 PM
Cool :P

I just want to say that Neo, why did you change my topic? ;;

October 06, 2006, 04:48 PM
I just want to say that Neo, why did you change my topic? ;;

Because the title was cluttered. Someone could just as easily check the thread for the relevant information

October 06, 2006, 05:29 PM
step 2 finished... ^^

October 06, 2006, 06:44 PM
Here is an RS Link...sry for the late release again lol

ThE WoRm
October 06, 2006, 07:30 PM
Do you mind me doing it like this? As other threads do so too ^^"

Thanks for chapter 2 :P

October 06, 2006, 08:01 PM
No we don't mind, as long as we get our manga to the people ^^.

ThE WoRm
October 06, 2006, 08:26 PM
I was talking to Neo ^^" About the topic of the thread, but I see that after he saw I had probs with it, he was nice enough to change the topic himself :P

Ok, so come in here and talk about P2, what do you think about it so far? I just love it how the mangaka draws the parts where Hiromu goes to serve XDDDDD

October 07, 2006, 04:48 PM
is zoom-manga working on chapter 3? because i would very much like to scanlate this manga, but its kind of pointless having two groups working on it.

ThE WoRm
October 07, 2006, 04:51 PM
I think they are, but wait for them to reply ^^"

October 07, 2006, 05:03 PM
yes... chapter 3 is on its way... we've just had a horribly busy week at school, which caused the delay
i'll talk it over with noimportance, maybe we'll get a few more people on board for chapter 4

EDIT: this project will now be a joint with Shiraku

October 07, 2006, 10:28 PM
i thought you didnt have time for anything...

October 07, 2006, 10:41 PM
i dont... just that we have a long weekend ^^... so i get a lil bit of time

October 08, 2006, 11:48 AM
thanksgiving day coming up huh? :D looking forward to ch. 3

October 09, 2006, 01:37 PM

yatta! nice job.

ThE WoRm
October 11, 2006, 05:50 AM
Well, updated the topic ^^"

October 11, 2006, 10:29 PM
to clear things up, this is no longer a joint project, originally void wanted this to be a joint, but has changed their mind, and joined us instead

ThE WoRm
October 13, 2006, 07:26 AM
As I felt no one earns anything from the japanese text, this time it's with no japanese text (that, and the fact that I'm tired ^^") now Ohka gives their appearance, go and grab! :P

October 17, 2006, 01:50 PM
zoom-manga takes waaaay to long to make MQ releases. heres a release by [Shiraku]:

October 22, 2006, 05:29 PM
The Worm is unable to translate this project because he is going to University, so the Shiraku scans are going to be delayed until we get a translation.

October 24, 2006, 12:37 AM
Doesn't The Worm know better? Anybody can go to the University, but only a rare, special few are privileged enough to translate for us. In all seriousness, good luck The Worm and thanks for translating for us.

October 24, 2006, 03:29 AM

dude, we are the ones that are priviledged that they translate for us, not the other way around

October 24, 2006, 07:26 AM
Well, I was aiming for sarcastic and I'm sorry if you took that statement as serious. I thougt that that would be clear enough given that my last sentence started off "In all seroiusness." However, in the future the I will try to do better at
denoting where I'm being sarcastic. Hmmm.... maybe big <sarcastic> tags?

October 24, 2006, 10:48 AM
VOID -- have you posted asking for t/ler's on other sites?

((www.manganews.net / www.mangaupdates.com (in the Zan/ P2 section?) )

Also have you thought of trying to do a joint for a t/ler?

just some ideas ^^

October 24, 2006, 01:29 PM
lol, i have seen other posts there asking for translators, and no-one cares, so im not going to bother. also, if i do a joint, the other team usually takes everything over, and i want to do the distribution (need those MaxPoints xD)

October 24, 2006, 01:58 PM
devlin, you were pretty damn clear about the sarcasm, i guess some dont get it...

I hope the Zan project dies but hopefully this series gets some legs for as long as it is on jump (which probably wont be that long seeing the current trends but i would rather be wrong about that one)

October 24, 2006, 05:30 PM
lol, NeoShweaty you are as optimistic as ever. Judging by the amount of downloads my scanlations get, Zan is much more popular than P2 (700:250 respectively).

October 24, 2006, 07:36 PM
Those numbers matter little when the readers in japan determine the life and death of the series in jump.

October 25, 2006, 11:17 AM
I hope you're right NeoShweaty. I'm not a big fan of Zan either. However, I really enjoy P2, HnI, ES21(to a little bit of a lesser extent) etc. especially the type of manga where the protagonist starts off with no real skills and achieves success through hard work. So I hope that the Japanese readers keep asking for this and Jump keeps printing this.

October 25, 2006, 12:31 PM
i think jump made a mistake by having three sports titles, however different they may have been, come out in succession. I mean, i dont feel one way or the other about P2 but i hope something from this crop of new stuff lives. I mean Nazo no Murasame, Tsugihagi, Over Time (T_T), and now zan all in the same year, wtf?

December 04, 2006, 11:22 AM
um...........hi, i took a particular interest in this manga, I obvious love the classics like POT and ES21 and also slam dunk etc etc, and I think this one has potential and I'd like to help as much as possible, I don't really know any jap, but i have a tonne of time on my hand since i'm on a gap year :D so if there's anything i can do to help with speeding up the scanlations plz say :amuse

what's the latest chap in jap cos i dl this weeks jump and saw that the kid joined some kinda school, and was practising against a machine :s

December 04, 2006, 11:36 AM
I mean Nazo no Murasame, Tsugihagi, Over Time (T_T), and now zan all in the same year, wtf?

To love ru / Mx0 made it ^_____^

Angelus128 -- The manga is on hold right now for scanlations becuases of lack of translator >.< so there isnt much you can do :(

Chapter 11 is the latest ^-^ so we are behind -_- but maybe someone will pick this manga up :)

December 04, 2006, 01:27 PM
things were different in october...

Anyways, it looks like this is another one that is gonna get the axe. Wonder what will come to replace it?

December 04, 2006, 02:42 PM
well...it was fun while it lasted. Sorry to see it go. Thanks for supplying it.

It's a shame noone touches this anymore, its such a peculiar enigma to survive this long

Either way, following the raws, it's improving in visual quality since its start, and i'd call that an encouraging thing if anything else

ThE WoRm
June 14, 2007, 04:15 PM
P2! Wasn't cancled yet, and it doesn't look like it'll be cancled in this cut, so, I wonder if there are any scanlators willing to do it, because if there are, I'll get back to translating it ^^"

June 14, 2007, 04:53 PM
Which chapters of P2 did you translate before?

ThE WoRm
June 14, 2007, 05:51 PM
1-4, they are already scanlated, I don't want to start translating from 5 if I don't know if there are any scanlators for it. Also, I need raws, I guess I can find magz around here, but if someone has the tankus (what is the chance for that?) I would like those ^^" :P

June 15, 2007, 07:42 AM
Sooo, the links are dead...

ThE WoRm
June 16, 2007, 09:53 AM
Well, I got raw for 5-7, the only thing I need now is scanlators to come up and say they are willing to do it, if such appear, I'll get to translate it.

Maxy Barnard
June 27, 2007, 12:58 PM
Well, the translations for tsukai never turned up, and typesetting beet is taking a while, but i can typeset for you if you want, as p2 is one of the best jump series of the moment.

however......... i can't clean for the life of me......

ThE WoRm
July 02, 2007, 06:01 PM
Well, I got an offer in pm about doing it (from Mangasearcher), I guess you can work something out to make it faster :P If I would've been in the mood, I could always say "I'm gonna do heavy QCing on final product and put it under my group's name" But I'll need to see about it :P

Well, anyways, as the volume raw at home, and I'm too dense or tired to think about the idea of downloading it over the uni too, I'll do it only this weekend, by then you'll see two chaps at once (unless it'll take longer than I thought, in which case it'll only be one).
With my luck, by the time we'll catch up (It should be around... Chapter 42 by now?) the series will be removed, but with enough luck and good writting (well, it survived so far, didn't it? :P) it might not happen. Although all that, I'll do my best to catch up in translations up to the latest at the moment. *those good old days*

go the worm!
5 chapters in now, and it makes you wonder why it did so bad at first.....

August 19, 2007, 10:58 AM
I came to see that this series was scanlated and all i can say is thanks people who working on P2.
It'so great .

October 08, 2007, 11:44 PM
Hi everybody ;)
I would like to know if u have the scans for Chapter 9 and after?PLz!

November 03, 2007, 03:16 AM
I have already done chapter 9 and you can find it at www.ryColaa.com if you serach ahrd enough. I haven't updated it in the projects area yet, too lazy. Just click P2! under categories to find all posts about P2! Then you'll see chapter 9. Chapter 10 and on will come as translations come.

March 24, 2008, 06:10 AM
Hi everybody,
Crayola stoped P2? If someone knows japanese, can he translate P2 for french scantrad team ?


November 03, 2008, 07:03 PM
This may not be the right place to ask but does anyone know where I might be able to find the raws to P2
