1 Manga scanning? on Tue Jan 04, 2011 1:20 am

I have gotten ahold of 2 volumes of Yozakura Quartet. Vol 8 (40-44) and Vol 9 (45-50) and want to scan them so they can be translated. Id like to get the best quality without breaking the bind of the book as I don't have any experience trying to do and would not want to risk destroying either book. Does anyone know the best way to go about it or would scanning it normally be acceptable?

Well, if you don't want to debind your vols then the other option is to bend the spine and scan it two pages at a time. The problem with that though is that it messes up the spine. ^^"

Here's a guide to scanning via the bending method: http://www.unblessed.net/guide/scanning/scanning.html

Here's a guide with some info on cutting/debinding:

That said, as long as there's minimal bleedthrough and high DPI so I can get the best quality out of it I don't really mind. Either way I'd absolutely love to have some decent tank raws for vol 8 & 9. Very Happy

Here is the scans for Ch.46. It's the first time ever scanning and the results are a little dark, but do with them as you will. Very Happy

It's not too bad for a first try, I'm pretty certain that we can get a better scan with this raw than with our mag ch46. Thanks for the scan. ^^

Here's what I got off a quick clean of pg40 (i.e. Can do better): http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

I'll ask our Banchou to work his magic on it. :p

By the way, since we'll probably use this raw do you want to be credited as magattack or would you prefer something else?

That doesn't look half bad if it just a quick clean. lol

Also, makattack is fine if you credit me for the raws.


Here's Ch.47, too. http://www.mediafire.com/?lucmz58ke5co6md


I should be able to get 48, 49, and 50 done by the weekend and then the waiting game may begin as Vol 10 doesn't come out till april. Sad

Cleaning is 90% artwork and 10% fine tuning, I just need to fiddle around a bit more with the fine tuning. :p

That would be lovely, hopefully the trans for ch46 will be ready soon so our YQ release rate should pick up a bit soon. ^^

Well, we've got mag raws up to 51 at the moment and with any luck we'll be able to get some more so we might not be totally YQ-free. Very Happy

Thanks. Smile

Hopefully the chapter will be done by next Saturday/Sunday, but those double page spreads will require quite a bit of attention.
