I think for color pages the ideal is jpg.

For gray scale pages I think it was "8 bits png". If your scanner gives you the option to scan in grays and to save in png 8 (not 24 bits png, that I think it's what comes by default with everything) I believe that would be the best option.

If you can't save in png 8, I'm not sure if it would be better to save the images in jpg or png. I believe png files are bigger in average? Anyways I don't believe this is too relevant.

Probably ShiroAka or prime_time should give a look to this thread.

Got it! I'll see if my scan saves in .png 8, not 24 o/ o/

Hm, to edit, about the image, the bigger the better? Is that it?

Ok. I'll be waiting for more feedback. Thanks, anyway ;D

I think we have seen all those old doujins from Yamibo in the past. A couple of them are translated here too.

Hello!

I am planning on buying two Nanoha books, and just wanted to know if someone is already planning on scanning them. The books are:

なのづくし おだんご亭総集編
http://shop.melonbooks.co.jp/shop/detail/212001046354

Only three left in stock, I might miss out on this one.
148 pages compilation I think.

魔法少女つめちゃいました
http://shop.melonbooks.co.jp/shop/detail/212001056316/

302 pages compilation book.

If no one's going to buy them I could scan them. Which will take time. But hopefully I'll get around to scanning them.

Dear God... I'll have to remember that I've posted on this forum now...

Hi WeatheredPeach, and welcome~

Thanks for telling us that you are planing to buy those doujins, I'll post your message in our mailing list to see if the people from our group that usually buy doujins is getting any of those.

ASDFGHDASGDFSADFDA Meki Meki's doujins since 2008 till 2010 compilation? Seriously! O_O
It must be pricey as hell but I'll contact the guy who buys doujins for me. If he can buy it, I'm surely gonna - at least the Meki Meki one.

But I can not assure you... However, if I buy it, we can split the scanning...

Just a possibility.

Well, if you get your book I think you will be able to start scanning way before me, as I have quite a bit of stuff to do. (I've basicly swamped myself in stuff I want to scan. Add onto that I edit, school and have other stuff I want to do... Yeah.) But scanning only half this books sounds comfortable. But! Having scans from multple sources will make them look different. And that mightn't be wanted if you want to keep eventual scanlations of the same book looking the same. But if that isn't a problem, well... I'll scan what parts you want me to scan.

Even being a compilation I don't think the group would publish the whole thing at once. It must be huge and extremely tiring. So differences between scans wouldn't be a bother, I guess.

If this is a compilation we probably have most of the doujins scanned I believe. We have a lot of scans of Meki Meki (I think they all should be in this thread? Except for the stuffs scanned by Yamibo), some of those doujins look pretty good, but unfortunately we haven't been translating too many things from them lately. Well, we are working on "Innocent Dreamer" now, maybe we can translate more stuffs from this circle later, but at this moment our list of current projects list is looking pretty big.

Ehehe, I know that feel.

But if you have the majority of the content of that book, should I bother getting it, or should I look for something else? I could always just get it, and if there isn't enough stuff in it that you haven't got to justify destroying the book I could always let it live on amongst other books upon my shelves.

I'm not really sure about the contents of this book, and about what we have scanned. I'd prefer if we wait and see if ShiroAka or prime_time read your post, they are the members of our group usually getting our doujins, they are more informed than me about this subject.

Maybe in Meki Meki website there's a post talking about the book's content. So we could verify. I thought about that as well, A. There's lots of Meki Meki's doujinshis scaned here. It wouldn't be fully useful, perhaps.

Maybe, maybe ._.

Hey,

I don't think anyone will be scanning なのづくし おだんご亭総集編 or the Meki Meki 魔法少女つめちゃいました at the moment. For the Meki Meki one, I don't think we have raws for any of the doujins that were out in 2008 (there's 3) but we definitely have the majority if not all of those from 2009 (maybe missing 1 here) and 2010. MKMK doujins are also fairly wordy to translate and fairly hard to edit so scanlations are generally quite slow. But after all, you should judge whether you think its worth it >.<

Also, @kkattapiya, I should be able to get scans of theatre wings from yamibo so don't waste your energy scanning it >.<

I know that we don't have raws for these 5 MekiMeki Oukoku past Nanoha works, and I think all of them should be included in that compilation anthology:

The rest we have and the newest one migh be scanned by prime.

For C83 I only will get these Nanoha related books hopefully.

Also it would be nice if someone could buy this adult Ameiro work, sadly I could't order adult stuff this time.

Alright. Too bad I've already placed my order, otherwise I could've gotten that adult title. (...but 1200 yen for 40 pages? That's a bit expencive...) If it isn't out of stock the next time I order doujinshi I could perhaps get it.

Almost bought a Saki book from 皐月すずらん as their art was so cute~ Kinda regret not getting that aswell...... Why are there so many good looking books about? ._.

But yeah, I could eventually get around to scanning those MekiMeki stories (plus extras) when I have the book. (Unless someone else wants to~)
