HOTD volumes: need editors

Hello, all.  A few start-up groups who want to do HOTD volume 6 have recently been brought to my attention, so this is addressed to you guys:  We should work together to get HOTD stuff done.

There are raws of volume 6 out there, but they aren't the best quality.  I've actually scanned volume 6 myself at an extremely high resolution, plus I can translate the extra stuff, so we could put out something much better if we worked together rather than if you used the public raws by yourselves.

Also, I didn't really want to bring attention to it yet, but actually one of my goals with this blog was to eventually redo all the volumes.  XLG did fine with the resources they had, but the resolution on the pages is too low to and the brightness is overdone so a lot of detail is lost.  Needless to say, scanlating 6 volumes is a lot of work, so I haven't done much yet myself.  However, the translations are basically done and I've already scanned the raws of the 6 volumes and they're more or less ready to be edited.  But, it's looking increasingly like I'll never have the time to do them all by myself.

So people out there who want to do volume 6 or the earlier volumes, or anyone who is a skilled editor who's good at redrawing and can join spreads: please send me an email (I now have an email address listed on the left side of the page) showing me what you're capable of and we can work together to produce the best quality releases of the volumes possible.

  2. Aaargh. Everytime I see some scanlation group asking for help I punch myself in frustration at my uselessness. I have so much time on my hands due to summer break but I dunno how to edit or anything.

    But please do keep up the good work. I don't care how long you take to scanlate I'm just happy HOTD is being scanlated.

  6. I wish you the best of luck on this ambitious goal, and wish I could help too. But since I'm only any good with the standard A-Z using works I'm of no use here...
