  1. Not going to comment on any of the other parts or whether this seems like a workable idea in general, but you should run waifu2x-caffe locally on your own to process as many images with as crazy parameters as you want, rather than burden a public website with the load.
  2. Friends, we have a problem! This is the first place I'm going to type this up, and then adapt to all the other avenues where we tend to communicate, I guess. Our translation is moving too fast! That is to say that editing at this pace cannot keep up - mainly because at this point I'm the only active editor, but I'm also so many other things for the project - and I can only do so much. A lot of the TL to be edited is also my own, and I get tunnel vision where I can see something sucks but can't see how to fix it. All kinds of trouble arises from this fact, not the least of which i
  3. I'm very happy to announce that @LuckyDaikon has today joined the Manakashi team as a Translator! She's very capable and I trust will be a major asset and advantage for our little project. Give 'em a warm welcome, and remember to come hang out at our Discord to chat with our team and others who're looking forward to this title.
  4. Right, and I'd absolutely agree with you in general, if this was, say, a paid job. But beggars can't be choosers, and it's easier to place more editing burden on myself than it is to find a translator who is both very skilled in Japanese and in creative English, willing to join a free unpaid project in this job climate. I'll rather have a horse now than keep looking for a unicorn, you know?
  5. Hello and good morning This is me just shamelessly bumping the thread to point out that the entire main post was replaced with fresh info and all that good stuff Also, to reiterate, I'm officially putting the call out: We're looking for additional translators! Please see the main post or our homepage if you're interested, or point your friends there if you know someone who might be interested.
  6. Hey hey and Ho ho, quick post before I write up any bigger update! Merry only-slightly-late Xmas! Here's a new demo video of the project: It's just a collection of short clips from different places, meant to show the technical side and also the rough TL/writing quality of what we're working with. The scenes are random, spoiler free and not in chronological order. Feel free to let us know what you think!
  7. I can promise you this one is not going to take years I'll post a full update on the current situation on Fuwanovel pretty soon; we're stronger than ever and things are looking up!
  8. Hey all, thanks for the replies and encouragement! I realize that if one only uses this forum as their information source, the progress on this will probably have seemed rather scarce And I admit, I haven't updated the thread at all to create any additional hype or expectations, but that's kind of been on purpose - I'm the sort of the person to typically walk the walk before talking about it. That way I can't let anyone down, heh. Actually nothing in particular prodded me to post this update either, and I don't have a grand announcement to make right now, I just thought I'd pop in to sa
  9. I get that this is not strictly on topic, but... It's perfectly fine to learn things as you go! My philosophy is to never wait around for something until you're "good enough to do it" under some arbitrary measure, because then you're wasting time, and time is the most precious resource of all. Additionally, I firmly believe that hands-on work is the fastest way to learn practically anything. Of course it helps if you can be realistic about where you are skill-wise and what you need to do to grow (i.e. you're past the first Dunning-Kruger peak), but there's no reason not to start wh
  10. I seem to have joined (or, activated) at a great time Wish all the best for Tay, this site and community.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm yumi from pantsudev and we're working on a translation of the 2019 adult visual novel True Love's Lily Dyes Red 真愛の百合は赤く染まる Manakashi no Yuri wa Akaku Somaru https://vndb.org/v26232 Team Team: pantsudev - Discord - Homepage - Twitter Lead: @yumi Translators: yumi, BlackBane91, @LuckyDaikon Editors: yumi, @aho Programmer: yumi Contributors: @Zakamutt, @Funnerific Background The work started sometime in the spring of 2020, mostly due to happenstance. I was bored and started hacking around this nifty new VN I'd found. I developed my own t
