Redrawer:Where the author put text above art, hide the text so that only the art is visible, also link 2 pages spreads to make it look  natural
Cleaner/Editor: removing the text, leveling, and doing the black so the pages look good
Typesetter: for those who don't know it means putting the text in the bubble and sometimes above the art.
We're also recruiting proofreaders (must be fluent in English, as you will be checking the mistakes and the flow of a translation) and QC'ers (only people who have a lot of experience in scanlations as you will be responsible for seeing if the text is well put into the bubble and the eventual cleaning mistakes as well and exporting the PSD's to upload them on a reader).
Finally the raw provider (usually lives in Japan): able to bring volume copies to the team for some project.

Software requirements :

Adobe Photoshop + Topaz Clean and Topaz Denoise (for cleaners)

Biorg Trinity Ch.1

The first chapter of Oh! Great's (artist) and Maijou Outarou's (author) new manga, Biorg Trinity.
The series is serialized in Ultra Jump, a monthly magazine.

"Biorg Trinity follows Fujii, a 2nd year high school student who is in love with Enomoto Fumiho. He lives in a world where people are touched by a rare "illness" called the Biorg·Bug. One day Fujii catches the bug which makes holes in the shape of hearts on his hands. What will happen to him now? Will he succeed with his relationship with Enomoto Fumiho?"

And, here's the chapter:


Enjoy. ^^

Hungry Joker Chapter 04

Here is the 4th chapter of Hungry Joker, a very late release I know, we apologize for that, but we're actually busy with real-life stuff, exams, projects, presentations, and things like that.

Another thing, we're looking for RAW providers for Hungry Joker, I (Crand) had trouble with this chapter's RAWs, the double-spread namely (too much was cut that I couldn't attach it), so if anyone is able to provide us with RAWs then we'd be thankful.

Anyway, here'is the 4th Hungry Joker chapter:


Hungry Joker Chapter 02

Here is the lastest chapter from the Hungry Joker series. Chapter 02. I (Vince) made the translation myself this time :) thanks to crand for the cleaning, Renan for the typesetting and tahu for the proofreading
