This is bad for me.
I'm in thailand and their translating for School Rumble here is pretty suck.I always download from yanime because it is more hilarious.
So,I have a question and a favor here.Will Yanime immediatly drop the project? If you do it will be real sad for me. And a favor,would you please at least release volume six? I heard you guys have already begun translating it and I really hope you will finish it.
Sorry if I asked for something impossible but I will be really looking forward for the release.
Finally,I will take this opportunity to show gratitude to all staffs for bringing me the best quality as manga could be. Thank you

well seeing as how two of our series has been licensed, it looks like we'll be having some editors free.  So looks like we need some new titles.  And while I'm not the official word on this, hell I'm barely an editor anymore right now, but SR and DGM will probably be dropped.  We might release what we have done, but that should be it.  Sorry folks, them the rules.

It's DelRay who licensed it and from what I've heard about them, they are horrible with their translations. In an evil way, I'm actually looking forward to seeing the first volume on the shelves at the bookstore so I can browse through it and see how much different the "professionals" are from my traslations.  :-X

I keep hearing that DelRey is horrible, but I read their Negima and it seemed alright.  Then again I don't know the original.  So someone needs to fill me in on the "evilness" of DelRey.

Del Rey... didn't they do tsubasa chronicles and xxxholic???

I am not sure how good they are since I didn't bother comparing the scanlated version. Although I don't think the main scanlating group for tsubasa is that good either...

edit:

Interesting... from what I picked up from that gamefaqs forum post, Negima was probably their worst translation...

LoL... that would be interesting indeed. From what I remember from reading tsubasa chronicle, they do in fact try to explain japanese puns. Although they did made up some stupid tougue-twister to replace the pun -.-"

Localisation is to be expected in a licensed release, as sometimes japanese jokes don't always translate well, or just aren't funny any more in their translated form, so usually something similar, though more in tune with the western audience will be used.  It's not necessarily a bad thing, but the hardcore otaku and "purists" will be sure to bitch about it.

Let's hope they don't have crappy page long translator essays... or as roots calls them... "notes"... :P

you wanna know the real reason we editors don't like your "notes"...it's cuz I can't fit a page long note about the ocean tide in a 2 inch margin!!!!  And your kappa note might be good, but I was the only person who got the Godfinger reference!  So there! :P

Since no one was listening to my question in the staff channel, I guess I'll ask it here.


Are there any policy against posting stuff about underground scanlation projects on this forum now that it's been licensed? :p



 ;)
Title: Re: School Rumble is licensed
Post by: da MiGHTy pLUm! on July 31, 2005, 08:50:18 PM
the general policy is you don't post about another group's releases.

bew =\. out of curiosity does anyone know if the japanese SR manga has furigana for the kanji? some mangas dont, like gakuen heaven =\.
Title: Re: School Rumble is licensed
Post by: notme on August 12, 2005, 01:22:01 AM
Yes, the SR manga uses furigana except for the side and smaller hand-written comments.  If you are thinking about buying the volumes in Japanese I would highly recommend it.  I got them all both because I love the manga and because I need to practice my remedial Japanese skills (studying for a little over a year now).  They are way to advanced for me still, but for $5.50 each, new from an import bookstore, they were a great deal.  I love owning them as well ^^.

I don't think they are listing it yet. Looking at their release calendar, it won't be out before April 2006. Pastel (licensed before SR) will be out In January, so I'm guessing the lead time will be similar.
