    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.

    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.

    @yumi - Well, when you put it that way, that's understandable. Sadly, it's not an optimal situation. You're in the same position I was when I was doing Miagete Goran Restoration project. Finding and getting TLers to help ain't easy. Also, it doesn't help that the fanTLer pool has kinda been dwindling with most of the folks going official these days. So yeah... you wouldn't have much choice, so I understand where you're coming from.

    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.

    I'm not a fan of projects where you put the burden of good prose writing all on editors. Sure, editors are there to improve the flow of text and the overall reading experience. That's true. But I'm of the opinion that your TLer already needs to be at least somewhat versed in good prose writing (including flowery descriptions, etc.).

    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!

    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 tools and launcher/loader and started translating. Once it started to actually look somewhat viable and promising,
    I announced my lone work here so that at least nobody would accidentally be duplicating my efforts at the same time.
    Current State
    Since the start of the project, I've been fortunate to meet some fantastic, nice and helpful friends who've certainly helped take the project to another level.
    Progress has been sometimes sporadic, sometimes steadfast, yet always inevitable. I'm a busy person, but never abandon my projects.
    With ever more passion to see this work to completion, I want to stress that we are now actively recruiting members!
    Right now we're in the most dire need for an additional editor!
    Please see my posting about the position further down (link here) - But the TL;DR is:
    We might also still be taking on additional translators, and possibly TLC/QA.
    If you'd like to apply for any position, please join our Discord and/or DM yumi#0163 with an introduction!
    Everyone is also totally welcome to join our Discord server to hang around and see what we're working on
    2020-12-24: XMAS 2020 Demo/Trailer:
    This is just a bunch of random clips to show how it looks at the moment.
    Spoiler free and non-chonological. Everything shown in the video is subject to change.
    Alright, cool! Anything else?

    I bet there's a lot people interested in this game, we don't see often in English games like Manakashi, we have for now in English, Maggot Baits and Sadistic Blood, and sadly NikuNiku ENG TL, game from the same dev/writer/artist that Manakashi was dropped time ago  I come to here the forum monthly just to check if there's more updates, and I'm happy you're still alive. I don't mind wait years for this TL, I've waited years for the ENG TL of Maggot Baits.

    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 say hi while coming to the forum to answer a few PMs.
    So, how's it going? Well I'm not dead and the project certainly isn't either, all in all it has chugged along very well. I've been pretty active on a few big VN Discords and received a ton of help from a ton of absolutely awesome people, but for the past month or two I've unfortunately been very tied up in some other responsibilities. Such is life! However, I'm trying my darndest to get back to the Manakashi project right about now, so don't worry. I will, also, actually create a new teaser video of some sort soon to show off the quality and progress we're working with, as well as how I solved certain technical challenges.
    I don't like talking line counts - and actually I don't keep or know exact line counts, either - but while there's a whole ton still to translate, I can at least say that I am rather proud of the quality of what has been done so far.
    So anyway, I guess all I wanna say to you lovely people is that if you want to see this project happen, please don't hesitate to keep letting me know Reply to this thread, talk to me on Discord (yumi#0163), PM me on Fuwanovel, whatever - It does help me gauge interest and thus my own time allocation to the project, and actually means more to me than I'd like to admit.
    I might've started the project for entirely selfish reasons, but due to the sheer volume of material alone it's not going to end that way. So, in addition to the previous paragraph, I guess I'd like to put out a lazy call for reinforcements. Translation (and the editing that follows) is the job I'm most picky about, but if you happen to be a proficient translator/writer and would want to help with this project, don't hesitate to get in touch. I also periodically need a few trusted people to QA/test the project while it is in progress. If you'd like to do that and think you'd be good at it, feel free to DM me on Discord, preferably. Additionally we will need a real TLC down the line, but that's actually not very critical right now.
    So yeah, alright, that's the Manakashi project right now! Talk to you again later
    Maybe I should ask for a developer role on the forums to create one of those dev diaries...
