Don't worry, next thing's a fair bit lighter.

Pesu's...alright. Expensive and the limits on what they'll do is a huge pain, but work rate is really good, especially considering the competition.
>> No. 35815
Yeah, that's pretty much my take on him as well. Another translator commented that he is pretty good, albeit overly literal at times (but that's a style kind of thing sometimes).

So yeah, good but expensive. Oh well. I sent him MAGIC MAGIC to do and that'll be it from me for a long while.

Anyone else ordering for C86? Here's what I have planned. It's not all C86, I'm also getting some older stuff. 3 are worksafe, all touhou.


I might make changes to this, and will post anything I do change. But this is mostly accurate
>> No. 35869


Looks like Sabre.Anime will be doing that one, and he's a competent enough scanner.

Shame his old stuff is sold out already. Oh well.
>> No. 35870

I see this, dunno about the rest.
>> No. 35871
See what where?
>> No. 35872
I meant the byakuren doujin in that link, which to my uninformed eyes doesn't look sold out.
>> No. 35874
Oh. I was talking about Team Twin Devils.

e.g. http://shop.melonbooks.co.jp/shop/detail/212001069497
and several others that are on pixiv only.

Ah. Wasn't aware of that artist doing porn until I saw that story.
>> No. 35877
Bought http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/13/95/040030139510.html a while ago. It's in Kalevala's to-do pile.
>> No. 35879
so, ETA 3 years?

Whatever, he'll do it eventually. Maybe. Replaced with: http://shop.melonbooks.co.jp/shop/detail/212001074819 (worksafe). Thanks.
>> No. 35890
Wished that Nagana sayui's first Momiji and nazrin doujin would get scanned, but I'm not sure if they're sold out or not. hopefully next time there'll be an ordering spree where I have extra money.
>> No. 35897
isn't actually available yet. It looks like it won't be available on online stores until sometime in september. And I don't feel like waiting.

Sold out. Which sucks, because Retrograde Touhou was a fantastic pool. Dammit.

Sold out. But it's a recent doujin, so I'm going to send it to the guy in the hopes that it gets restocked. But I doubt I'll be so lucky. Dammit.

So, final order:
21 items.
>> No. 35904

someone else might pick that up considering how the other two Iku doujins by him were scanned at a decent rate.
>> No. 35908
One of which was scanned by me, although an alternate scan did show up later.

Then there's a third Iku doujin that I commissioned Kalevala to scan, but he hasn't posted it yet because of course he hasn't.
>> No. 35909
>> No. 35910
ok nevermind on the order I decided to delay it until September. The schoolgirl Reimu doujin isn't available for sale until next week, and Neropaso's other Tenshi doujin isn't available until September. So I'll just wait. Especially since the Retrograde touhou book sold out (dammit!).

Plus, this gives Shaolan-kun time to join in my order. Just in case you're reading this.

As strange as it may sound, try Gimp, it worked for me.

I once used http://www.guapdf.com/ to remove restrictions on a PDF, worked like a charm. If your PDF needs a password on opening it may be tough.
>> No. 35987
A good free pdf unlocker. This hobby is expensive enough already.

This works somehow. Tedious to do one image at a time, but can't complain that much.
>> No. 35988
It's just a regular pdf, not any of the DRM shit?


Use process.bat from the command line, e.g.
"process.bat 桃色仙術" for "桃色仙術.pdf". It will extract the files, either as JPG or PPM, and attempt to convert all PPM to PNG using ImageMagick. If you don't have ImageMagick installed, you can manually do it yourself.

>> No. 35997
It's a compilation of older stuff.

>> No. 35998
Actually he did a Reimu doujin for r11

But yeah, that's just a compilation. I like his older stuff better, and some of it had bad scans. I thought it also had a new doujin/short, but maybe that was just the other huge compilation.

It's very possible that's just what it looks like, and there's nothing you can do about it.

The image looks fine on my computer. It only looks pixilated when I zoom in really far, and there's no reason anyone reading it would be so far zoomed in.

Probably images within are quite low resolution. I just use Acrobat's "Export all images" to extract native JPGs from PDFs without resampling. If you don't have it you can post the file and I'll take care of it.

Yeah actually. http://newdoujin.com/doujin.php?c=####### replace the hashes with the numbers from a Melonbooks URL. That works for recent stuff. If that doesn't work feed the numbers to Google, you'll sometimes find them referenced on an artist's Pixiv, or something else that tells you what it is.

Also a tip for new Melonbooks links: Add &adult_view=1 to skip the R-18 check.

I'd assume so too, but want to be sure. It could mean out of stock forever for all I know.

Well, it's released. And you can select a quantity from the dropdown, which used to mean it was available for purchase.

But in stock is "在庫あり". So I honestly have no idea.

Anyone got experience with Rinruririn for translation (I got a typesetter already lined up)

>> No. 36257
Any idea of what to expect for a cost range?

was $20.

I dunno, just send him some things and ask. It's text-only, so it's comparatively less expensive.

Tasked Sabre on a few books.


Had >>36102 (https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=74399) too, but it sold out the day before. Anyone else get it, by any chance?

Ok, nevermind about the Toranoana books in this, he forgot to include them in the order. For fuck's sake...
>> No. 36394
Sent things to him but got a message he was gonna be out of the loop a bit and waiting for him to get back to me. Got any alternatives if he's got too huge a backlog as I just need translator as I have an editor already
>> No. 36395
Not really. I tried biribiri, but he took forever. That was because he relies of AfroThunda for proofreading, but that still raises other issues. I get the feeling his English is pretty bad.
>> No. 36399
Damn. I just wonder if I'm in line or if I needed to send a second message to him. As he's not gotten back to me other than an auto reply that he was away until midmonth (November)
>> No. 36400
I'd just send another message if you haven't gotten an actual response from him. He hasn't messaged me yet with the next Kenchinroku block.

Actually, why'd you stop using Pesu+Ean?

I've never used that group. I'm just looking for a first time for commissioning a translation for something and that person seemed to be one who doesn't seem to care what content he's translating for

>>35813 and a bunch of other posts in here.

On a related note, I sent Pesu some titles a few days ago, and he hasn't gotten back to me. I also haven't seen any translations from him recently, so he may have stopped/taken a break.
>> No. 36421
Yea the restrictions is why I didn't bother with Pesu as I think hyper BE might be 'extreme content' although it's funny how breast expansion is viewed as more extreme as rape/mindbreak...
>> No. 36438
I stopped at first because I got sick of his limits and high price, but now he's just not answering my calls. You're probably right.

In this case extreme means niche.
>> No. 36450
You think biribiri+AfroThunder would take that book or should I keep waiting on Rinruririn to get back to me?
>> No. 36451
Did you ever send him that followup email?

But yes, I'm almost positive biribiri would accept it. I repeat, though, his English and/or Japanese don't seem to be the best.

Quote from my last commission with him;
>Yeah, I was more or less aware of "evil bug" meaning something different, but I wouldn't call him a lover at that point either, so I tried to come up with something that would fit and wouldn't break the flow too much.
in response to him translating 悪い虫 as "evil bugs". I don't know Japanese, but I was informed on IRC that this is an idiom referring to "someone who is a poor lover, or not deserving of a relationship". He couldn't make that flow, so he just translated it literally instead of finding a real solution.

Also Pesu responded to me. I sent him two doujins:
(C84) [さぺろんブラック] #露出蓮子ちゃん

(C83) [ありぃすいべりぃ] 華扇のOL屈辱日誌

His price for http://exhentai.org/g/673018/9c7fab4adf/ was way too high, bleh.
>> No. 36453
I never sent that followup as I was waiting for the month to end.

Should I just effectively resend my old email or just have it being rewarded as a bit of a 'Hey did you get my previous mail' style
>> No. 36454
Personally I'd do:

"Hello, I sent you an email <timeframe> ago, but only received an automatic response. If you missed it, here's my request again

<original email>"
>> No. 36474
Well it's sent so I guess I'll be hoping to get a response
>> No. 36497
Got a response. Should have the script in a few days
>> No. 36512

Did anyone get this book? Place to be 4? It's marked as taken care of in my head, but I apparently never ordered it.

Well the first thing is to find out what's good and what isn't. CGRascal did two of them, so those aren't. Someone confirmed that the patchy one isn't. No idea about the Alice book. IIRC desudesu did the rest and he's probably good enough.

This one's been scanned to e-hentai: http://g.e-hentai.org/g/775111/518ecb266d/

It's untranslated though.
>> No. 36685
Judging by the filesize and uploader, that is almost certainly a low quality downsize of the digital version:

That uploader is ripping from some other site that either doesn't know how to properly extract from PDFs or just doesn't give a shit about quality.
>> No. 36688
Similar size than the first so I'm not sure and the resolution looks to be the same as the first

Still good catch on the file size

Expected Size: 40mb
Uploaded size: 28mb

Is that uploader known to be a lazy/shit uploader
>> No. 36689
It's not technically the uploader's fault, but the uploader is still an uncaring ass who shouldn't be uploading the downscales in the first place.

See the comments in http://exhentai.org/g/762769/94d5c4e068/
If I'm not mistaken (I can't read Japanese), that uploader is ripping files from a blog that rips files from another site that re-sells digital versions and other people's scans. And at some point in the chain, someone is downscaling (or upscaling) the files, or just resaving as lower quality JPGs.

And, of course, the exhentai users don't give a shit, even when you have abominations like:
>> No. 36690
They removed the 'Expunge this for being shit quality' feature so you can't get rid of it.

So should I buy the DLs myself to replace his shitty uploads? Just not sure how much of a change it would be
>> No. 36691
I've re-uploaded some of them, so try comparing yourself.

With the Patchouli one (originally as a stand alone called 'Touhou Ukiyo Emaki - Patchouli Knowledge') if it's retranslated should I keep the front cover and back cover? with it or just keep the segment only as it's one of the only ones of the collection I care about as the translation is acutally missing a pile of pages
>> No. 37125
>the translation is acutally missing a pile of pages
If you're planning on retranslating it, please do the whole thing, not just those pages. I asked someone about translating just those pages... and the general response was that the entire translation was lacking overall.

I would keep the original cover and back, personally. At least until someone is willing to compile the translations into the full tank. Everything except the Reimu chapter is translated (I'm kinda working on getting that done), but most of the others are CGRascal, and fuck that.
>> No. 37126
Oh it would be the entirety of that story just that one story and not the entire anthology as my god that'd be expensive as fuck and a buncha the stories I just can't bring myself to care about.
>> No. 37127
Yeah, that's what I expected. Just wanted to make certain it wasn't just the missing pages.

And there's no need to retranslate the whole thing, anyway, just the CGRascal parts. desudesu did some of them; at least the Eirin and Yukari parts off the top of my head.
>> No. 37128
Made an order.


>> No. 37129
Damn, is that already fully ordered? Too late to ask you to tack on one more?


I only noticed it after ordering my own stuff. I'd love it if you could get it, although it's not a problem if it's too late/you're just not interested.

Dead-ed and Hiryune did a fantastic job with MAGIC MAGIC. bitleech did a good job with the PARANOIA CAT Reimu doujin, although that wasn't nearly as troublesome. rockginger did a good job with Wish's Yuyuko book, which is full color.

Dead-ed's computer exploded last I heard from him, and Hiryune hasn't been on e-h since april according to the forum. Everyone I mentioned is also an e-h user, so they'd probably expect payment in e-h fakemoney. Although if it's something I like, I'd be willing to donate towards it.

What is the doujin, anyway?

In part it was looking towards the future as some of the ones I were looking at were having more floating effects or being placed over nonstandard textboxes which are designed for vertical text and I don't know if you could fit words in it an example being here.

There are a few where it's a single character line wide with the burst background
>> No. 37304
Yeah, that does look kinda bad. I don't know any free editors besides Afro, and I'm pretty sure he's pretty much booked with other work+real life.

If you have e-h bullshit money, you could make a bounty for it. There are certainly skilled editors there. And that's unfortunately the only way I know to find them anymore.

Try hentai@home if you have internet/CPU to spare.
>> No. 37309
Not really up to seeding torrents (I think that's what Hentai@home is that)
>> No. 37310
It's like seeding, but not really. If you aren't up to seeding, though, you probably aren't up for h@h.

What it does is runs a webserver on your computer. When people browse gallery images, they contact a h@h server running on someone's computer (probably) and that is what serves the image.

It requires a lot of disk space, since you need to store a large number of files from random galleries. It works best with fast internet, since that means you send files to people quickly. It's not as internet-intensive as popular torrents, which are always going,but it can really use up your internet.

And to reward the people who do this, they get 1 GP per pageview (worth ~0.16 credits each now) and generate hath at a daily rate, ranging from 3/day to I think a max of 25. I got it up to like 15/day or something, IIRC.
>> No. 37311
I'm sitting either on close to a million GP and I don't know how to run their selling thing as I got no clue on the silly premium credit numbers I'd need to commission someone to do editing there.

Go to this page: http://g.e-hentai.org/exchange.php?t=gp
Look to the right column, that's for people selling GP (to get credits)
Under sell count, enter "1000" (that's 1 million GP).
Under "Ask Price", enter 168. That should be a good value for now.
Click "Sell GP!"

It's basically a stock exchange kind of thing. What this does is put in a sell order; you let people know you have 1000 KGP, and are looking to sell it at 168 credits per kgp. If someone wants to buy any amount of GP for a rate of 168 credits/kgp or more, you'll automatically sell them that GP and get an appropriate number of credits. It won't necessarily be all at once, you might get something like 5 kgp to one guy, 100 to another, etc.

To get a real value for sell price and not just use 168, you look at the spread. That shows everyone's current buy/sell requests, grouped by the number. Right now the most expensive buy order is 167 credits, the least expensive sell order is 169. Putting in 168 will mean you're first in line for anyone trading at that value. However, since it's a stock market kind of thing, the prices fluctuate a lot. You might just get someone else wanting to sell 10,000kgp at 167, for example.

I'd like to ask something. I recently went to the sadpanda on the search for an old doujin. It was something pretty ridiculous, a story about how Meiling sells out the SDM, gets everyone in it (plus Yukari I think) raped by hordes of faceless men, gets them pregnant, then eats the babies to grow stronger, with some survival of the fittest talk thrown in for good measure. No actual guro onscreen but implied. I think it was part three or two of a series that began with Yukari and Eirin conspiring to have everyone in the SDM raped and it then backfiring on them. Thing is, it seems to have been deleted from sadpanda. Is there any way I can find it, or does any one of you guys still have it?
>> No. 37322
Your memory is a little hazy, but that sounds like Extend Party 3 by Takakuya. It's translated and still on sadpanda.
>> No. 37323

Extend Party series, yes. Also Meiling doesn't sell out the SDM. She's ignorant/lazy at first, takes advantage of the situation later.

All 3 of them are on sadpanda. They're probably all tagged loli, so you need to use exhentai, not g.e-hentai. That may be why you can't find them.
>> No. 37324
I am using exhentai, it was a pain to set up on my smartphone (my PC died yesterday) but it's right here. Maybe something in the settings is off...
>> No. 37325
Ah, found them. Turns out nothing was wrong with the settings, whoever uploaded it just didn't add tags for shit and searching 'meiling pregnant' had no chance of finding it. There's literally no tags about the content and only half of the characters are even listed.
>> No. 37326
That's largely a quirk of the tagging rules on e-hentai. 3 has the pregnant and impregnation tags now, did you add them?

There's only visible pregnancy in the last like 5 pages of the ~60 page doujin. Tags mostly work on a notability system, where things and characters that are only present for a small fraction aren't supposed to be tagged at all. Sometimes it makes sense, sometimes it doesn't. But it's far from the dumbest shit they have on tagging.
>> No. 37327

He's uploaded 3 Itou Life books, and Avion Village sux, so his taste isn't completely bad.

Not bad though what's the circle of the Reisen one?

It might be that he doesn't like Tentacle stuff, that and last I checked RN has a good scan record so it's not the end of the world if this guy doesn't do it.

And about Avion life, odds are once you've read one you've read 99% of them due to his fondness of same rape plot set ups and limited art range.

It does pain me to say that Itou Life's gotten a bit samey in terms of his general plot flow of doujins. More so when he actually mixed things up early on.

I highly doubt that. If nothing else, he's perfectly fine with making bounties for jp->cn->en translations, which alone makes him shit in my book. Even beyond that, I've noticed a good amount of shitty English in his galleries. I think that's stuff other people translated, but I can't be sure. His bounties explicitly state that he will not credit the translator.

He's definitely doing some stuff himself, but if he's actually a competent translator, he outright chooses not to bother fixing shitty translations he's given.
>> No. 37456
Wait he's rolling off translation parties?
>> No. 37457

He's using the e-hentai bounty system, offering huge amounts of credits (one of the worthless currencies from the in-browser game). Occasionally people will translate shit in exchange for those currencies.

But he also does stuff without bounties, e.g. the recent guro uploads.

With Melonbooks how big is the markup for overseas shipping?

>> No. 37935
>With Melonbooks how big is the markup for overseas shipping?

You'll have to email them and ask. The overseas thing is from a different company, not melonbooks, so they can probably respond to english emails just fine.

There's a limit of 5 items. That's all I know about them. Couldn't find any other info on their site when I looked.

For scans, you'll have to do it themselves. They obviously won't; they'll only ship it to you.

> Anyone do commissions or bounties for buy and scans?
If you can find me an editor I could do it. I'm lazy and haven't scanned anything in like a year, but if it's just a few items I could probably do it over a weekend. But I can't edit the raw scans, so you'd have to find someone to do it.
>> No. 37936
Oh I can send the stuff to others for the editing. I just need to figure how get in contact.

And it'd only be one book.
>> No. 37937
Well, if you can't find anyone else, I can do it, and pick up 4 books for myself as well.

Two things: I'm going somewhere in 3 weeks for a week, so you'll probably have to wait a month. I don't want to risk a package sitting on my doorstep for a full week, and shipping does take a long time.

Second, just to make certain you know what kind of editing I'm talking about, here's a sample un-edited doujin: https://mega.nz/#!Dh5nWQKA!Np8Nng2mwLD_y91I8pfxN25f1u4xez9EWDQCMhUjHwg

I forget. Probably should've posted one a volunteer did, e.g. http://exhentai.org/g/797607/a2098306e7/

The important thing is that the editor knows what they're doing. Unfortunately, a lot of e-h people don't. Vetting the submissions was a pain in the ass, especially for the more difficult ones that required the use of various filters and other shit I don't understand.
>> No. 37944
Yea the bounty system there is really unclear how the hell to set it so you don't get fucked. No clue how you can get them to submit their samples and shit.

I mean the basic trim shit down I can figure out because it's just select and crop but the color balancing and all that I got no clue.

That guy in your link do a good job or not? I can't really tell since I looked up the book you did with the sample and that looked pretty good but I got no clue if the work done was really extensive or not because of the filtering and rebalancing and stuff way beyond my knowledge.
>> No. 37945
I think so. I can't really tell, as I really don't have an eye for this kind of thing. That's one of the big reasons why I've never tried it myself.

All but the last item is touhou. Most of it is R13, but also a bunch of C90. Some of them are scanned, but in garbage quality, so I'm trying to fix those.

For translations, I'd like https://exhentai.org/g/957811/d1aa78c318/ . It's on my list, so just get a text translation, and don't do editing. At least not on that version. But this way you can get it done early.

Not really. But you don't need a text translator specifically; almost anyone who does translation+editing will be willing to give just a script, and should charge less too.

I don't really know that I can recommend anyone. Desudesu is "okay", but tends to fuck up translations far more often than I'd like. BiriBiri seems to suffer from this too.

Fairly easy. He's not nearly as bad as he used to be with it. Pic related.

Personal examples I can think of:
Mistranslating "Koakumanko" (combination of "Koakuma" and "Pussy") as "Koaku pussy", as in, thinking her name is simply "koaku"
Not knowing how to handle "Imouto-sama" for Flandre. He asked what to do, which is why he's better now. I think I told him to use "little mistress", which probably wasn't the best choice. oh well.

Update on translators.

Rinruririn still isn't returning my emails.

All The Fallen did https://exhentai.org/g/1009932/f2e0ee4358/ for me. I think they did a pretty good job. However, they're also stupidly expensive, due to having a minimum cost of $1/page for translation and $1/page for editing, regardless of how simple something actually is. Their blog post mentions "research" but I can't see it as being necessary in most situations. Maybe they'd be suitable for some deep philosophical doujin, but they're way too expensive for most stuff.

And now an update on scans.

Kouya agreed to scan the following:

https://exhentai.org/g/1014840/d972ff34a9/ (already done).

All are replacements of recently posted shit scans.

Then I'm going to try placing an order through the deputy service advertised on melonbooks and toranoana, mostly to see how it works. This will include Diisuke's P-cup Eirin book (it should go back in stock soon), since I'm fairly certain that will get a shit scan, and said shit scan will probably get translated as well (like the patchykoa and komaeiki books).

And then I'm not going to be fighting these garbage scans any more. A lot of my last order was stuff already scanned, but that will be it. I'm not doing more. What I have sitting in my room is probably going to last me 2-3 years as well, if more editors don't drop out of the sky.
>> No. 38129
Sad thing is people eat it up because apparently they like Chinese scans which would be acceptable only in the early 90s when everyone was on dialup.
>> No. 38130
Okay, so

Diisuke's book goes for 756 on melonbooks. This includes tax.

The purchase link I got from BuySmart lists the price as 1,296 yen. There is no explanation for this discrepancy, but my best guess is that it includes domestic shipping. According to the last shipment invoice from my deputy, domestic shipping was 520 yen for 7 items from toranoana.

Then there's a 330 yen fee on top of that. Their fee is normally 15%, but due to a special promotion, it's 10% + 200 yen (i.e. more expensive for anything under 4000 yen)

So yeah, fuck them, I'm just gonna see if I can get my usual deputy to buy it.
>> No. 38131
More like they're so hungry for smut that they'll take anything as they fear something not getting scanned otherwise. /at/ is no different for the most part.

Some might see the inferior scans as early access until a better one is made which they favorite. Sad to say this much is in the minority compared to the above.
