Hey everybody, thanks for having a look at our thread ^^
Although we are a new group, I think (well actually Azazel thought) we need a thread so people know we are around and what's up with us, so here it is.

Group members :

Fnuckale (general cleaner, general typesetter)
Azazel (general cleaner)
enis (random cleaner)
Aviv (random cleaner)
JDPIMP145 (random cleaner)
TwoFlower (random cleaner)
nytrogyn (random typesetter, head of the OP project)
Guardian_Azure (666satan translator)
Tranquil Melancholy (666satan translator)
Yumi-Chan (666satan translator?)
ltphil (german OP typesetter)
deadgamer (OP cleaner)


Active projects:

666satan - HQ releases (delayed, need a good translator)
One Piece - HQ releases out of HQ raws

We are always in need for new group members, mostly cleaners and translators (better be avaliable on thursdays when the LQ raws are being released), if any of you would like to apply to any of these positions please contact me over email (chikushox@gmail.com) or MSN messenger (fnucky@walla.co.il).

If you have any questions go ahead and ask, I'll be more than glad to answer :D

edit:

We've finally got a Chikusho Download's Site up and running, serving all of our new releases:

Ah, wonderful to see that you have an own thread for your group now! :dance

Questions:
1. Why did you start to scanlate? Who was the first who had the idea?
2. When did you start?
3. What motivates you?
4. What does the name "Chikusho" means?
5. Do you plan to scanlate other mangas than Naruto in future?
(I know that I proposed it once but wasn't much of a help though....:s)

Hmmz,

first of all, i've seen your two naruto releases, and they rocked big time :jir_thumb

Here's a question XD
Do you think Sai died?

Sorry, couldn't resist ;)

Other then that... Where does the name Fnuckale come from? Is that your real name? ( if so, it isn't a name i've ever heard... )
Same question for Azazel
Aviv sounds like a name i've heard before, so: does it mean anything in your language?
who's angryhamster? Is he registered on MH too?

1. Why did you start to scanlate? Who was the first who had the idea?
I am not a big manga fan (not that I don't like mangas, just that I don't really read that many), but an old friend of mine intoruced me to Death Note which I really liked, so when I finished reading chapter 89 (yeah it was a while back) I decided I also want to discuss what's going around there so I decided to join a Death Note forum, thats how I got to TOWNL and there I started off as the guy who colors pages and such, after a while I found out about manga helpers and started to get my Naruto chapters from here and upload them to an Israeli forum I'm a manga uploader at (yeah I was such a leecher XD) with credits to the Manga Editors of course.. now I'm the kinda guy who has to try everything atleast once and I found cleaning quite.. appealing? I really wanted to clean those LQ raws and have them released, you know, to do my part (a leecher gone good kinda story?) so anywayz yeah, thats how I got into Editing.
I was the one who suggested starting a Edited Manga group, I first offered the idea to azazel who wanted to help but wasn't sure if he can cause he didn't know how to clean but he soon realized how easy it really is. I also offered the idea to another friend of mine (Aviv) who was really obsessed with Naruto, he also really wanted to help but he wasn't as good as Azazel or me so me and Azazel had to go through his pages and fix them (I am talking about chapter 297 of Naruto, he got A LOT better and helped alot on 298).
2. When did you start?
Naruto chapter 297 (I formed the group on thursday night 3/2 and we had 2 pages cleaned by friday ^^;)
3. What motivates you?
The comments of the readers and the will to be the best :)
4. What does the name "Chikusho" means?
It's the japanese word for "Damnit", credit to Azazel for coming up with that name (pfff japanese pro XD)
5. Do you plan to scanlate other mangas than Naruto in future?
We really want to scanlate 666satan but in need of a translator, other than that, when (if) we get more members we will start other projects.
All you guys are friends and live close to each other, or am I wrong? smile-big
wrong you are :P me and Aviv live in the same country (Israel) but we've never met, Azazel I met on TOWNL forums and he's one of my best friends online (who turned me into a maggot.. you.. ugh!!!)
Do you think Sai died?
Gonna let Azazel answer that cause I know he wannt, but I will also share my opinion after :D
Other then that... Where does the name Fnuckale come from? Is that your real name? ( if so, it isn't a name i've ever heard... )
Fnuckale? it's a word I made up on the summer vecation 4 years back, when I got my dog I looked for a nick for him and Fnuckale seemed to fit right in, I love it and it's pretty unique so I always use it online =)
Same question for Azazel
I'll let Azazel answer about his nick :D
Aviv sounds like a name i've heard before, so: does it mean anything in your language?
Aviv is a real hebrew (or Israeli) name, it means spring in hebrew.
who's angryhamster? Is he registered on MH too?
angryhamster is also one my best online friends, met HER on TOWNL forums, she sometimes proofread for them and kindly agreed to help us :D
and nope, she isn't registered on MH.

I HOPE HE DIED!!!
but deep inside I know he didn't dieT_T
it's just a bunshin or something who got hanged (I love that page:D)
I hope Sasuke kills him
a f$#king Chidori up his assXD
hehe sorry I really hate Sai^^

Khaludh said:

well here it go's:
I have interest in magic satanic stuf and thing like that (but I'M NOT A SATANIST!!!)
so I have the Satanic Bible (to be honest I downloaded it)
and so I was reading that and than I stumbled accros a list of names of fallen angels and other evil beingsXD
and among those was the name Azazel:)
and since that day I use it
...
later I found out Azazel is the original name of the devil (yes SATAN)

oh yeah Khaludh I'm also Dutch^^

the word azazel is used a lot in hebrew btw ^^
I pretty much have the same opinion as Azazel does, yet, reading the info they give about the next chapter makes me believe Sai might actually be dead O_O;

Cool! Where are you from?
And what's with the signature?
All i've got is insane? / alles wat ik heb is gestoord?
perhaps you wanted
all i've got is insanity / het enige wat ik heb is mijn gestoordheid
???

Something i've always wanted to ask, doesn't matter to who, after seeing people play WoW:

"how i mine for fish?"

EDIT: Damnit Scans sounds awesome XD

Heh, big cities ( for as far as we have them in the netherlands ) have their advantages, but certainly their disadvantages too! So i prefer living in a medium-sized city close to the big ones... so it can be 'relatively quiet' and i still can get what i want from the more covering shops etc in the larger cities.

I'm from Delft, Zuid-Holland, in between The Hague and Rotterdam, but if you're from Holland you know it, ofcourse ;) It's not that small...

Heh, i want to go to Isreal once eventually, but that won't be anytime soon... and i won't be able to go alone yet ( age 16 ), because Isreal doesn't really have the image of a 'safe' country yet... especially in the easily frightened dutchmen's view...

uhm well..
there are some good comic shops
but the best option is to buy them on the internet
I bought Naruto vol 7 on bol.com and they also have some other mangas
and if you have a creditcard (or your parents) you could buy them on eBay
oh AND
there also are con(s) here :)

ok, I'd like to rise here an idea I came up with, I already told Aza but I'd like to get some other comments.
so I always go through our releases after I get some sleep (actually I am talking about 298 which I released at 2am on a school day) and find many mistakes and that we did a terrible job.. I really hate that and it makes me feel really bad cause I know we could have done better if we would have just taken our time with it.. so I came up with 2 options:

1. make a v1 release which is a quick MQ-HQ (we hope you will rate those as HQs but well, up until now you only rated this kind of releases as MQs) and after a day (kinda before the HQ raw is out) we will make a v2 release which will basiclly be better (better cleaning, colored cover etc...).

2. we could just take our time with v1 release...

we are good with any of the above, so whatever you pick works for us.
personally I like the v1/v2 idea better...
