    I can put that one next on my list after I finish the translation for the SW doujin.

    You know what, before I promise that, I believe Mantis and I did have a priority list that we should probably re-discuss before commitments are made...but either way this WILL get done and I am aware of it.

    Awesome. Dragon Magazine's a good one, probably the most popular art book too from my observations. Like I said, pricing on eBay really is hit-or-miss with "miss" being more often. So feel free to enquire if finances are an issue. It's very easy to end up overspending when it comes to eBay, mostly because many Japanese sellers are very greedy. They often quite literally price merch at up to 1000%. It's a mistake I made until I found out how much cheaper I can get Outlaw Star merch through alternative means.

    Out of curiosity, would your guys' priorities in translating go:
    Outlaw Star, then the doujins, and then FRHS or is it a different order?

    At first I was doing all of this solo. As I was starting work on the last pages of the first volume I was joined by a few others who took over the translation side of it. Since then my duties are usually editing translations and typesetting.

    That was around (if I recall correctly) halfway through last year. At that time, to be honest FRHS wasn't even on my radar. As far as I knew it was an abandoned manga and I'd last checked for a scanlations a few years before. It was quite a surprise to find You're Welcome's scanlations.

    I think it was when I discovered that some FRHS characters are featured in the Outlaw Star manga's unpublished extra chapters that I realised that FRHS may have more relevance beyond spell guns, a shared universe and a few cameo appearances in the anime. Not to mention, I found that FRHS is a great read.

    In terms of priorities, the Outlaw Star manga indeed comes first. That's especially true now that we're quite close to finishing the draft. We're a few chapters into the last volume. After that comes the extra chapters which I probably have to learn to scan better for. Currently we're using raws from 2002. I'm getting them looking pretty nice for a final release by utilising Gigapixel. I now intend to finish the draft before working on the public release.

    You're also right about the doujinshi. They're pretty important. For example, sometimes they contain interviews with Takehiko Ito which is great for Outlaw Star lore. Fortunately for me, most of the time the editing and typesetting is a lot easier as most pages are largely text. While this may sound like a problem, it's usually quite formal/literal, which will allow me to outsource some of the doujinshi, hiring less proficient translators from Fiverr while more important works like the light novel and FRHS are handled by our fluent translators.

    Zemekis would probably be best at coordinating more FRHS translations. He knows our translators personally. I'm glad you're still interested in working on FRHS. I can still edit and typeset if you want to handle cleaning.

    I have yet to see it for sale in the US. I have tried helping someone else find it. Like Mantis mentioned, check other regions.

    I am not much help here lol I don't buy manga though. I want to get into it for a few different series but I have yet to actually start. I kind of want to wait until I am a homeowner so I can have a place to keep it on display while keeping it free from damage. Where I rent now, well.. It is fairly wet and there is a bit of a mold problem. Not a good idea to collect things that are paper related right now. lol

    Mantis, if you wanna handle typesetting and editing, then I'm totally for that. I can do the cleaning no problem.

    KorinKitty, definitely handle your home business before getting those copies lol

    I'm still here, I just heard that you guys are coordinating directly at the moment so I'm letting you guys discuss the specifics via DMs. I'll likely be the one coordinating between whoever provides the raws and the translator(s). Then perhaps editing the resulting translation before passing it along to Mantis for typesetting. he may handle the editing as well, depending on our respective workloads at the time.

    I'm already providing the raws in advance. I stumbled upon all of them on some Japanese P2P network. They're not the best raws, but they're not too bad either and it beats scanning several volumes. The raws are from 2004. So, scanned two years later than the mediocre raws we're working with for Outlaw Star. They're double-paged scans, so clearly the uploader didn't want to butcher his books.
