No sfx and the scans weren't of the best quality. But first chapter finally done. First 8/u/ manga official manga translation btw.
Wasn't this never picked up because it had pseudo /ss/ with the MC in later chapters?
I hope not. We've already translated 5 chapters.
Had to go look at the translations for the later chapters we have. Been a bunch of kisses and lewd stuff with the girls so far. Unless there is something in volume two which I have yet to see raws for - all I see is yuri on the relationship side.
Got expunged from exhentai.
I went looking in the 4/u/ archive:
Seems like the /ss/ thing is nothing beyond complaints about the character in question. 4/u/ really wants to see this translated though.
Want to see what's in volume two after finding this image.
>Got expunged from exhentai.
It was cause it was commercial non-h manga. Didn't realize this when I uploaded.

I kno rite? TL Note was obnoxious I will admit but if I didn't shove it there I'm sure we'd get endless people asking why we'd translate it as 'abhuman'.
Should have just gone with Ubermensch tbh. Would have been funny as fuck.
>Try to be more sensitive
>Still get called a Nazi shithole
There's no point in even trying
It's not even being sensitive really. And a lot of the people who complain the most about us are trans who are all collectively crazy anyway.
Lol. That comment section has devolved into ban all Nazis from Dynasty Scans.
The username pushing all the remove nazi stuff's name is VivianGames which just makes me think they're completely faking it.
That and the 'die cis scum' avatar (I think he put it in his avatar just for this discussion cause I couldn't see it at first last night). I'm just gonna wait and see how long it takes for Dynasty to realize they are getting played by an obvious troll.
We have to make a new credits page… rip
>These are their ideal lesbians: fictional and fetishized. Lesbians are cool so long as they exist only to entertain men. It's when they want things like rights and respect that they become the blight that is bringing the entirety of western civilization to its knees.
woah 8/u/ btfo
Might pull everything. They keep deleting SHiN's comments asking why the credits page is getting deleted.
Fucking Dynasty mods going at it again.
They never change…
Nice work. Can't wait to see all that stuff translated.
Yeah the other chapters aren't as big as this one was.
I thought it was that one where they eat mermaids for whishes or something like that.
>wah these evil bigot 8ch nazis translated this manga by this artist I really liked I wanted so now it's shit

reminder this is who you are talking to when you go to dynasty
>my childhood dream of talking with animals has finally come true
wtf I love dynasty now.
Mangaupdates say this got discontinued/complete in 2 vols, is it true?
Thread's been locked. RIP
The thread is locked right now on Dynasty - they pm'd me saying they'll unlock it nuke the thread and warn both sides provided we change the credits page.
I'll say this: we'd benefit more from the thread being unlocked. More views/potential uids for our board which was the whole purpose of translating mongolian mangos to begin with.
But which would get us more views, the comments or credit page staying up?
The credits page is staying. Allowing them to remove it would be submitting to censorship.
Or here's a crazy idea. They download it if they want to keep it but delete it themselves if they don't like.
They are gonna delete the credits regardless now and nuke the thread. Do we upload new credits -> (i'd just use pic related to get across the point of censorship) or pull it from Dynasty.
Any idea why it got canned?
In the end, it is your descision. I hate it whenever some artist or translator pulls their stuff from some website but I'd almost say they deserve it in this case. That would just make those smug, deluded, fucks think they have "won" (by losing content).
Can't you replace Übermensch with something like Superhuman, Genetically Superior, Bred to Perfection or something similar? And make sure to keep that eagle please.
>However, that would just make those smug…
Sorry, forgot the "however".
apparently theyre pulling all onour scans and lazylily's too. I get them caving in to one fuckin triggered rando but what happened with lazylily?
What the hell? Could sombody who has an account complain about this on the other releases? As in "I heard this is getting pulled off the site. Why?" so that other people in the forum that weren't involved notice this shit.
I could do so too but I'd have to create an account and I assume the Mods would just see it as trolling if somebody with no posting history starts something like this.
We should create our own yuri manga reader.
This is what I've been thinking for a long time now. Other groups like bimbou have had problems with Dynasty before and it's pretty clear Dynasty is the real problem of all this. Someone with enough space should clone Dynasty and upload it somehwere else, but with releases from the banned scanlation groups and licenced series too. If possible with no forums because any mod abuses power in them for whatever thing they don't like.
>these topics are unsavory
These pussies shouldn't even be allowed on the Internet. It's the fucking Internet.
/u/, you did good today. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. You're the kind of degenerates the internet needs.
They censored SHiN and he was unhappy about it and other things in the past.
I have all of our works from both exhentai accts and Dynasty and I will reupload them sometime in the near future. There are other readers and we've thought about some other options.
>A. Mega.nz folder containing all of our scanned works and a seperate one for translations
>B. /u/ archive board right here on 8ch to contain all our stuff
>C. other readers like Batoto for hosting our works
We also have a twitter setup now for giving our works a bit more publicity:
Last I already have compiled some of my previous translation jobs into a single folder on mega:
I'll upload more in a bit.
Edit Note: updated link since it wasn't working

I'll write a more detailed, capcoded post about what happened and why I decided to have our work removed, when I get out of hospital. In brief, the main issue was not so much that we were being asked to change the credits page, but why. /AK/ has been using the Imperial eagle on there credits page since 2012 and we had been using it for a year. If there was an issue, all the Dynasty staff had to do was politely ask us to change it and I would have agreed. What started this was a poster on the forums, essentially throwing a tantrum. This poster claims to find European symbols extremely triggering. I doubt this. They have never said anything about /ak/'s credit page. They simply didn't like us. From what I read they seem to still have a stick up their ass from GG.
I told Dynasty to remove everything because I refuse to censor myself or this board for the sake of an hysterical leftist who can't come up with a coherent argument, or even show basic respect to other people.
We have the resources for a reader but we are going to need some more help to get it going.
Botato is pretty well known, but I remember the whole Boku Girl fiasco that rubbed me the wrong way. Though I like the idea for making a new reader if anyone of us has the ability to do it.
Thanks to yuri fans getting triggered by fan service involving the MC body guarding a shota in chapter 2/3 it never recovered popularity despite the plot starting up. Also I think they wasted too much time introducing the mermaid/yuri plotline. Art's still good since it's Takano Saku so I'm gonna translate it anyway
yuri fans get triggered too easily. was just MC stripping and shota saw. That's it.
I just think making our own reader is unrealistically expensive. The options I listed up there are more ez to do and can be done immediately.
>translate it anyway
Typeset it anyway
I'm downloading everything by Lazy Lily right now.
Yes, a full blown reader like Dynasty must be pretty expensive, but I'm sure we can make a complementary reader. That is upload there everything banned/deleted from Dynasty which should be cheaper for a while.
>Botato is pretty well known, but I remember the whole Boku Girl fiasco that rubbed me the wrong way.
More relevant to this case, Murenase! Shiiton Gakuen got completely purged by the Batoto mods because people got triggered by Rapeman's credit pages.
So even if Botato was used, they would just purge it again. I remember Mangahere though, but as it's been it's been said, the sure way is to make a manga reader of our own and that requires resources.
>all the Dynasty staff had to do was politely ask us to change it and I would have agreed
Just talking from experience here, and being an outsider of this board, so take it as you will, but never fucking apologize or give ground to these fucks. They are not human in the sense you and I understand it, they are sociopaths that will view your apology and acquiescence as an admission of guilt and invitation to pressure you more in hopes of humiliating you further.
>From what I read they seem to still have a stick up their ass from GG.
They're spoiled (man)children, mad that someone actually challenged them, however mildly. They've been endlessly screeching about Nazis for the past seven decades, don't expect them to shut up about GG anytime soon.
Give them an inch, they take a mile. It's as you said.
Yes can't give an inch with these people.
anyone has the yuri version of this picture btw?
> provided we change the credits page
>provided we change the credits page
But the whole point of the credits pages, other than shit giggles, was to keep THAT EXACT CROWD of "people" away.
We've already decided not to capitulate and told them to pull our content from the site. And yeah it was to keep the wrong crowd away.
Go full on shitposting and change the credits page to this
warning, image is edited degeneracy
If there is any credits page changing, it should be something to trigger them even more, because fuck them.
>something to trigger them even more
That's easy enough to do. The only real issue is how mad you want them to get.
>how mad you want to get them
Does it matter at this point now that we're banned anyway?
if you want them to get mad from now on just post deus ex
Put something in the context that trannies aren't people.
checking my own hitlerdubs
Not particularly. I was just contemplating how far you want to take this.
>if you want them to get mad from now on just post deus ex
Oh, that's easy enough. I got just the thing.
>I was just contemplating how far you want to take this.
No need to take it far.
Just make the controversy widely knows, stop posting content in dynasty and make your own scanlation reading site.
It's common sense.
Tippity toppest of keks.
>Taking the high road
>using common sense
Oh right, I forgot this is a christian imageboard.
It's an anti-cucking imageboard.
If we were willing to be censored and pushed around by trannies we could as well have stayed in cuck/u/.
>It's an anti-cucking imageboard.
Of course; my response was entirely sarcastic. The other anon was suggesting playing nice-nice which is fucking retarded because we were already banned for not only doing NOTHING wrong, but were also ACTIVELY CONTRIBUTING to the website's success.
Then again, the cuck mods from there are probably lurking here anyway. What a bunch of fucking losers - taking the opinion of ONE verifiably insane shrieking idiot and assuming they are the voice of their community; it really says a lot about them.
Don't give them too much credit. They made a thread about /ak/ and were quickly pointed out how it was par of the course for them. When they noticed that another group did the same shtick, they felt the nasty nazis suddenly closing in, infiltrating muh totally tolerant grounds. Because where will we stop when we just allow everyone to fucking photoshop the reichsadler HAAAAAAAALP. Them not me.>>25151
God bless you Anon. We need more people like you everywhere.
I'd say Botato seems still pretty alright. How about Kissmanga? Those two are pretty much the only ones I use, because they don't have watermarks.
>Boku Girl fiasco
Kinda missed that completely. What happened?
I did not find a compilation of Lazy Lily's works in their website so I took everything and catalogued it.
Dynasty has some pics translated by them but I'm not sure if I should upload them too.
At least you aren't on the discord for Dynasty and see someone say "I hate men often" and call men "fuckbois" like everyday.
They are all trannies or black or possibly black trannies.
Sounds like something Mugino would do.
You can tell the person isn't from Europe simply because they've never seen the Imperial Eagle before. Hell, it's on the german version of the one euro coin.
Most of them are leftist sjw feminist lesbians or Trans.
Everything of ours outside of the stuff made in combination with 4/u/ has been deleted:
Got most of the cleaning done for the second chapter.
>Kinda missed that completely. What happened?
I'm not entirely clear on it myself.
The vague idea is that near the end, someone else started releasing lower-quality but faster translations, and the guy who'd done the rest flipped his shit and dropped his translation of it, but Batoto also took down the releases that weren't done by him, including the ones he had just announced he wouldn't do. It still isn't fully completed there, the better part of a year since the whole thing happened, and while it has been picked up by another group, I think only one or two kosher chapters have been released since.
There are conflicting reports of the details of what actually happened, of course. The most common explanation I see is that someone else started translating it for practice without intending to release anything, but someone else got their hands on the scripts somehow (?) and quickly typeset them. I don't know who actually got the chapters taken down, whether it was the one who wrote the scripts or the other translator. Assuming that explanation is true at all.
I always wonder why people call those things trans instead of just trannies. At least it surprises me if people on (politically incorrect) imageboards do so.
We're being irreverent on purpose, and although it's not a targeted insult we're refusing to use the term "trans" because it gives the impression we are conceding to them and trying not to hurt their feelings.
Or in the reverse, they treat it like a targeted insult if you don't use their preferred term and they dominate people unprepared for it. They crack the whip so you concede to them and tiptoe around anything which could hurt their feelings.
Hope this helps.
I've been released from hospital so now I'm going to write what will be an official statement on this. I would encourage the BVs to also add their opinion on what happened under capcode. It's unfortunate that I had a hospital appointment and was away for most of this. I guess it can't be helped.
The BV, who is the cleaner and typesetter for Mermaid Lovers requested that it be uploaded to Dynasty. We joked at the time that there was going to be some complaints about the huge TL note. We never expected for the comments on Dynasty to blow up over the credits page. Not long after it had been uploaded, a forum user by the name of VivianGames, started to complain about the credits page. This is the second thread on Dynasty that I have watched them destroy. There was then some communication between a Dynasty staff member and the BV. At this time I wasn't paying attention to it and was instead scanning a Mira doujin. The BV was asked about the credits page and then relayed this infomation to the 8/u/ IRC channel for discussion. We were given the ultimatum of change the credits page or have our work removed. I decided that we would not be changing the credits page. After having this taken back to the Dynasty staff, Casusby then stepped in and said that we would be allowed to keep the credits page and our work would remain on the reader. While this is happening, the thread is getting more heated. I registered an account with Dynasty and posted in the thread in an attempt to clarify our stance and to try and diffuse the situation through dialogue. My posts were deleted, which was a bit rude tbqh. I used a hitler.rocks email address to register the account, so maybe that wasn't such a great idea. The thread turned into a flame war and we were again given the ultimatum of either changing the credits page or have our work removed. We refused and told Dynasty to take everything down. Overall the poor communication did not help this situation. It would have been better if the three 8/u/ staff members could have had a discussion with the Dynasty staff. If this had happened, it's possible that a resolution could have been reached.
The Final Decision
As I've said before, if Dynasty had raised the issue of the credits page when it was first used, I would have agreed to change it. It's not difficult to reach the 8/u/ staff. If anyone has an issue, we can easily be found by using the info in the OP of the metathread. /ak/ has been using an Imperial Eagle on their credits page since 2012. Our credits page became problematic because someone on the forums became hysterically upset and played the trans card. To me, this is abhorrent. They way VivianGames has treated both the Dynasty staff and other posters on the forum is disgusting. I don't care if they are some oppressed special snow flake, it isn't an excuse to treat other people like shit. I don't give a fuck about being called a transphobic shitlord, no one on this board does either. The accusation was cynically used to target the Dynasty staff and force them into complying. VivianGames has had five fucking years to bring up the use of European imagery on scanlator credits pages and never did until now, which leads me to believe that it's not the credits page that is the issue but their hatred of 8chan. This is why we decided to remove everything. We refuse to submit to such tatics. The whole reason this board exists is to escape the censorship on 4chan. I'm not about to repeat the mistakes of 4/u/ and start the slippery slope of getting cucked by leftists who think they can stifle freedom of expression by using threats. If I did I would be betraying the values of this board and 8chan itself. The flame war and the moderation of the thread was not a factor in this decision. We have no right to dictate how Dynasty moderates their own forum.
I'm not angry about what happened, just disapointed. I don't hold any malicious feelings towards Dynasty for it either. I would actually like to thank Drpepperfan for the work they put into trying to resolve this. I'd also like to thank SHiN for his overwhelming show of solidarity with 8/u/, by removing the work of LazyLily from the reader. The support we've received from other 8chan boards has been a great help as well. We are now working with 8/a/ to get a reader for our scanlations.
EDIT: Grammar mistake

Which is not to say that deleting our replies before anyone could see them was something that went unnoticed. Or appreciated.
I don't have much to add beyond what u already said tbh fam
You should ask the anons on /a/ that are scanlating Rorikura Hold if they want their stuff to be hosted on the manga reader. Maybe we could form a scanlating Pact of Steel.
Possible noob question, but what did Lazy Lily have to do with this? Their stuff was removed and this was apparently a show of solidarity with 8/u/, but how?
Typesetting is so damn boring and takes forever.
Alright got a bunch done. Hopefully I can finish typesetting and release next chapter tomorrow. If not Sunday.
probably after the stream cause I want to quality check before I release.
I'm lazy and I needed to make a new credits page just to include this fanart since shrinking it wasn't working out - so that's why no Reichsadler. Did include our html finally in the release page.
Goddamnit how did I miss that
I'm gonna ask the translator when he gets back; seems like placeholder text he forgot to take out.
I'll probably remove it in the short term. Then again considering some of the stuff said in coming chapters not sure. Doesn't seem like something Tsukasa would say.
Yeah we really need to get a dedicated QC. Especially if I'm gonna go for speed on these.
That DDL link is for:
(C89) [Mai-HiME Goudoushi Seisaku Iinkai (Various)] Chigiri (Mai-HiME) [English] [8 u Scanlations] [Incomplete].zip
Either someone fucked up, or I'm being memed on.
Rip. Let me fix that. Again.
What would a QC have to do exactly, just review the finished product and check the grammar and spelling?
Check to make sure I leave no panels blank - also check my cleaning job (typically just look for stuff outside of the bubble and sfx to see what I cleaned)
btw I'm done cleaning third chapter.
Finished chapter three. Sent it to the new QC
Next chapter will be where yuri finally comes in. Nearly done with the /ss/ arc.
Done cleaning chapter 4. You guys are gonna like this chapter. Finally some pay off.
>it's a tactical katana folded over one thousand times IN SPACE
Chikane must have forged it from lunar titanium (Gundamium) found on the moon.
Done typesetting chapter 4.
Reichsadler is going back on for next release. And pretty much all future releases.
Can I get some (you)'s and discussion on the manga I cleaned and typeset?
Cool now discuss some shit about the manga I posted. Not Dynasty. Not politics. The manga. I'm sick of going to other sites like Dynasty for discussion on stuff I posted here to begin with originally.
Ah whatever - this is a canceled manga and I wasn't expecting much discussion on here anyway. Not a great manga for yuri either.
Not a bad series. Look to it continuing.
I'm sorry I was just annoyed at the lack of comments on here.
Yeah issue is chapter 2 and 3 came too early and ultimately left a sour taste in the reader's mouths with the shota getting so much screentime whilst the mermaid didn't see any till chapter four finally. Real missed opportunity here. There as other yuri scenes like with Malik in Chapter 1 and 5 in addition to the kiss in 4. But just not enough and kissing is all well and good but not enough meat on the bones to the relationships in the manga. Too shounen - not shoujo enough in terms of writing/relationship arcs.
That art is terrible.
I dunno man your work is yuri but it gives me the hebbie jebbies
Wrong thread for this shit.
Why don't you use the index and scroll through a few pages. Also I wouldn't work on this on general principal of terrible art, content, and I don't work on loli.
>inb4 go to >>>/tot/
Actually you belong in an >>>/oven/
Fuck that's not even loli. That's toddler.
Toddlercon (note this was toddlers and not even lolis) is not yuri even if it is 2d and japanese. Also wrong thread and you posted '=(' which is poor etiquette. I'm being nice and I know I will regret this but I deleted all two of your posts and didn't ban you. If you do it again I will ban. You also said this was the only translation/scanlation thread and there was one obviously on the second page. I can tell this was a deliberate derail.
Trigger warning: ur a faggit :DD:D:DD:D
i came here because of >>25356 being posted elsewhere. You guys are behaving like that tranny. Its very reddit to delete a thing just because someone got upset, (and is in no way mentioned in the rules. Unlike no politics rule and having nazi symbolism on those translations automatically is politics) The always friendly "get out nigger" reaction from anons should have been enough, dont be an oblivious pic related.
Because you left all the reactions here instead of deleting all offtopic. Just so that people can know what the extremely triggering content was. Here: for sake of information and understanding. https://hitomi.la/artist/ogu-all-1.html (TLnote: adblock must) Isnt it Ironic how you managed to make it relevant and kind of on topic now :^)
Other BV here. Can someone explain to me exactly what the hell happened while I was asleep? There's no one on IRC to tell me at the time of this posting. Pray tell that /ll/ hasn't been censored here because that would be grounds for outrage.
I would guess that your other board vol, Protoman, has lost his shit. I think this is the first time this year? He was doing so well so far but then he fucked up again.
If we were both little girls I'd hug the shit out of you BO, you're okay peoples.
Finished typesetting chapter 5. Just waiting on QC
>Guy posts picture looking for a translation.
>Gets spoilered first then deleted
>Then the two posts above yours.
BO summed it up really.
Next volume is the last volume since it got canceled. It has yet to be scanned and I don't know when it will be scanned so this is on hiatus until a scan gets uploaded somewhere or until we scan it ourselves.
Anyway - I've learned a lot since starting this. Most important: never to skip on having a QC check my work - just leads to more work later - I'm still finding errors in chapter two - minor kind like black text on a black background due to me changing the text color before opening a new text layer. I'm gonna QC the first two chapters and then release all 5 in a full volume download on mega later.
Uploaded to Bato.to - waiting for them to approve it and retweeted the fifth chapter:
Another problem is that there's just too much going on. 10 volumes worth of subplots got introduced in the first volume and nothing was resolved. I thought it was likely to be cancelled even before finding out that it had been.
Yeah definitely too much. Writer could have done way better.
Appreciate the effort. You're doing good work.
The first volume is quite enjoyable with a fine story. I also like the characters, especially Tonia. But, I hope it won't be cancelled.
I read the chapters on batoto and switching pages is slow as fuck. Strangely, I don't have any issue on smuglo.li.
Went and finished doing most of the basic cleaning for chapters 6-8. Probably won't be able to release these for months tho since still waiting on translations for Yuri Tantei.
