My mistake for believing that BD will be enough as an announcement, clearly since even BD readers failed to look at it sometimes. (I know that the comments on the top of the translations don't stand out much in the first place, especially when 60% of it is just some nonsense...I'm not blaming anyone. People don't have to read everything there is, just take what you want. After all, as you see, majority of them are nonsense rambling, so...-_-") Double failed since BD isn't the only one with this problem...-___-"
Allow me to emphasize one thing: "All the series I'm translating for Monthly Shounen Rival (and Dengeki Maoh...in case), I'm translating them from my own paper copies of the magazine."
If you don't know what those mangas are, look at this list
and if your manga is in it, then it is the manga in concerned.
Therefore:1) DO NOT ASK ME FOR THEIR RAWS!
My best answer I can ever give you would be a "bookstore", which I believe I did once as some sort of joke when someone asked me for BK. Other than that, there are only two answers to that question you'll ever get from me, and I'll answer that now.
- "Go look through Rena's achieve..." (if she already had it up)
- "Sorry, dunno..." (if she doesn't)
I don't care if you're looking for chapter 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...whatever chapter you're looking for and for whatever reason. If Rena doesn't have it, then I don't know where else to get it, and don't care to search for it either. I am not going to do you any miracle. Yes, I'll mention about stuff on the raw from time to time in my translations, but THAT DOESN'T MEAN I HAVE THEM! (Know this, most of the time, I only know about it because I either take some stupid assumption from other series that I know or asked someone on that already. I never take a look at them myself... :S )EDIT:
Figured that it might just be better if I posted what I'm scanning:
1. Blazer Drive
3. Spray King (until I finished with it)
4. New series of Rival.
Not taking request. Priority will depend on how update the scanlation is, for both the raws and the translations.2) NO NEED TO GIVE ME THE RAW!
I know that this hardly is the case, since most of my translations for Rival series are pre-raw anyway...No, my translation for those series is not delayed because I don't have the raw. It's delayed because I'm busy with other things that I didn't have time to finish it up. -_-"
Yes, expect my attitude when answering to these questions to be really bad AND I WILL OVERREACT TO ANYTHING IF IT GETS ON MY NERVES, especially with BD. The reason why I initially put this in BD before putting it here just to cover all of the series I'm doing is because people asked me these questions for BD the most, and I'm one of those people who would get more and more irritated when people have me to repeat myself again and again, even if it's your first time asking, but you're asking after 5 other people asked me the exact same question. I do apologize if you end up being that sixth person in this case who asked.
On the side note...just one small FAQ, since after I looked at my PM inbox, I think this question does pop up quite often as well:1) "Are you still on for ______?" or "Can you continue with translating _____?"
In fact, I will take these questions as being equivalent to "Can you just drop translating ____ already?" just to warn you. I'm not dropping stuff unless it broke some of my rules (eg. other translators got on). Any case, I will say so in my last translation of the manga with the reason for dropping. I have my RL and way too much mangas to translate that I do feel like dropping half of them, so just be patient with it.
