    Oi oi, there will be no spoilers here. lol

    BTW, are you just posting the French version or are you actually planning to set up a scanlation group and translate it?

    probly do a one man scanlation job. i see no point in simply posting the french ones if only few people can read it.

    unfortunately, the scans aren't of the best quality. basically someone took the book, opened it, and scanned both pages together. it's obvious that whoever scanned them didn't want to ruin his copy (can't blame the guy), since the pages are still tightly binded together.

    but yeah, it's definately Futari Ecchi (or "Step Up Love Story") as we know it... now to get working!

    Could you post a couple of pages?
    I just want to see how easy (or hard) it will be to edit them.

    Actually, I just had an idea, if you can translaye the French version, it just might be possible to transplant that translation onto the Japanes raws (its probably a long shot though).

    i have chapter 51 divided up per page and ready for translation!

    this is page 7-6 from chapter 51 "Les nouveaux voisins/The new neighbours"


    -the binding can be seen on some pages, and there is that bending from the pages being seperated

    -there is some minor clipping on the top from time to time

    -pages can be seen on the right side of the images (basically all even pages)

    -the black lines where the scanner didn't hit anything

    very minor stuff, really. the scans, while not of the best quality, are stil quite good. i can just crop out the black lines and the pages so it's nothing bad. the binding isn't an issue since i devided it on a page per page basis (instead of pages 7-6 being in one jpg file, they each have their own).

    I'll probly keep the traditional japanese method of naming (family name then given name) instead of the american/canadian/french/ect... like the french version did. instead of "Mika Yabuki" it will read "Yabuki Mika". just one of those little things that took me off guard when i read it through the first time.

    By the looks of things, it shouldn't be too hard to do a fairly good MQ translation.
    Here is page 6 cropped and leveled.


    EDIT: Oops, forgot the black line on the bottom.

    yeah, the little cropping needed isn't too bad... once i get a few pages done should i post them up here, or does anyone want to proofread (how we'll set that up, i don't know...)?

    i'll be using MS word to do the actual translation. i'm redoing the text in english and cut and pasting when the time comes to finalize the scalation.

    I'll proof read if you want, just zip it all up, put it on www.sendspace.com and PM me the link.

    What exactly do you mean by doing the translation in word?

    I have a MS word file currently open that i use to map out the text
    since page 6 is on display, the "page 6" on my file reads:

    Quote Originally Posted by translated from page 6

    Mika – Hello!

    Middle Right
    Yura – Who is it?

    Bottom right
    Mika – We’re the Yabukis, we just moved in the apartment next to yours…

    Bottom left
    Makoto – Whaaa! She’s gorgeous!
    I'm doing this mostly because i don't want to fiddle around with the images more then i have to, plus i have easy access to a spell checker. once i'm ready to place the text in the cleaned up images, it's just a matter of cutting and pasting

    We should contact Oishii-Manga regarding this.

    Thank you, oxybe.
