    Why, they've all but dropped the series.

    I'll try to see if i can contact Oishii-Manga. not too sure how i'll tell them they don't need to worry about it anymore

    meanwhile, if anyone wants to help me proofread and do some quality control, the first draft is done at http://futariecchi.4shared.com/.

    it's the "futari_ecchi_051 final.zip" file. just click and download. I'm waiting for feedback so we can get this thing rolling. modifying the text will be real simple and quick so i can make changes pretty much on the fly if needed... i should start a board somewhere else for this...

    I also setup a geocities site
    www.geocities.com/futari_ecchi_scanlations that i can use to link up to the downloads directly.

    I'm proof reading now, I'm also leveling all the pages and retouching some pages in a few places.
    So far the only mistakes I've seen, are in the contents page where you forgot to change the word "sommarie" to "contents" and on page 7 in the top left hand corner where you have put "Both Mika and me", it should read "Both Mika and I". I don't know what font you used, so I'll let you re-edit that when I've finished leveling.

    BTW, unless the raws were jpeg to begin with, you should never save to jpeg, 'cos the images lose so much quality.

    Also, you need a group name.

    Finaly, what happened to chapter 50?

    EDIT:
    On page 9, it says "Even if they love their partner, men can't but help fantasise about other women...", it should read "Even if they love their partner, men can't help but fantasise about other women...".

    EDIT2:
    On page 11 and 14, in the top right, Yakubis should be Yakubis'.

    regretably, all images were in jpg originally, so there's nothing i can do about that. still looks ok though.

    I'm currently looking for chapter 50. i did find volume 5 but it won't download... while volumes 6 -13 did.., sigh. it's currently at 43% downloaded, but seems to have stalled. I'm using chapter 51 as practice since i am new at this. once i get the missing chapter, it's first on my to translate list.

    group name? never thought of one yet...

    should i change the font or keep it?

    I just read the translation. I must say "Il est super!" The only thing I can complain about was the lack of translation on the cover. Thank you for your efforts and keep up the good work!

    Font looks fine (what font did you use BTW?), so keep it as it is.

    On page 18, top right, again change Yakubis to Yakubis'.

    Sorry for the double post (I'm a mod, I'm allowed to).
    Here is the the leveled and cleaned version.

    There are only a few minor changes that need to be made, if you read the file called edit notes.txt that will explain what needs to be done.
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/ow7gad

    Once you've made those edits, upload it. I'll send a copy to kane and also try and create a torrent and try and get it uploaded to #lurk.

    Also, once you've decided on a group name, let me know and I'll make an entry on mangaupdates.

    EDIT:
    SHIT! I missed a bit at the top of page 21.
    Also, on the last page (22), you forgot to translate the French that notes the end of the chapter.

    It's still their project. The only reason they haven't been releasing is that they lack a translator. They've been looking for the French raws for a while.

    the font used is called "Anime Ace 2.0 BB"... it doesn't look like a standard font, but it's on my pc for one reason... a quick net search revealed that it's actually a custom font by Blambot, so i'll make sure to add that to the notes. i must have downloaded it years ago, because when i started the translating, i just looked for a nice manga-ish font in PS that was readable. i checked out the use clause, and as long as we don't make money off this, all is good (which we never planned on anyways, so ).

    if you're using photoshop like me, i think the best course of action would be that once i've done the initial translating and editing, i'll save it the files in a .psd format so we can work with it, since it keeps the layers without flattening and everything else in working order, so we don't have to worry about messing up or accidentally erasing some text when working on the image itself.

    i fixed the corner of p.21 and translated both the cover page and french notes on p.22

    my biggest concern is that the (new) finished file is 18 mb in size... we may have to change the images to a smaller file size. i saw no change in quality when i changed the file format from .png to .jpg (i used the worse offender, page 13 as a tryout. the resulting quality was exactly the same yet it went down from 943kb to 472 kb). file can be found here

    on a brighter note, volume 5 has started downloading again at a good speed and should be ready to be worked on tomorrow morning. so we will have a chapter 50 after all!

    I re-edited page 5, I was thinking of re-editing page 3 but it would be very dificult.

    I think thats all the editing done now. If you want to save them all as jpegs, thats fine, I couldn't see any loss of quality either when I tried.

    All we need now is a name.
    I was thinking StopTazmo Ecchi Fans (or STEF for short), although thats assuming Kane has no problem with that name.
