    Red face Major manga

    I recently came into a happy find at a used bookstore in Minneapolis, MN, and am now the owner of volumes 2-12 (and a random assortment of the later ones) of Major. Now, I'm slowly translating them (slow because A) I can hardly read kanji and thus am spending much time with my handy-dandy dictionary and B) I'm working by myself in my spare time) for my amusement. I'm pretty sure I've got a decent translation going, though I have a feeling that some of it is a little sketchy because of unfamiliar dialects. ^_^;

    What I'm wondering is if it would be worth the effort to actually take the final steps into a scanlation of it. As far as "worth it", I'm just curious as to if there would be anyone interested.

    Right now this is just speculation as I don't have a place to put it, and it takes me about a week just to translate a chapter, let alone scanning, cleaning and what not. Plus I'd be starting on about chapter 9 of the series and working from there, and I know 9-13 is done already. So, I don't know. Anyone have any ideas/suggestions/encouragement?

    It's a baseball manga, starting with the hero in kindergarten and growing him up into the majors. We've got it here, though coverage is spotty, and volumes 2-12 overlaps with the hole.

    I thought it okay -- better than many, but not as snorkalicious as Adachi's baseball stories.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.
