Just some clarification :)

First off, I'm glad I receive lots of love from the people who are reading my scanlations :3 It makes me feel squiggly inside.

However, I just wanted to make sure I clarified the fact that I got the raw scans for Junjou volume 6 in excellent quality (and you will see in my credits page with every scanlation release that I thanked

myluv2pop for her awesomeness in sharing said raw scans), and that I'm not the person who scanned OR cleaned the raws.

This is just because I've been thanked for the awesomely clean scans and well, I didn't really clean them.

I only translate, edit, typeset, and quality check/proof read :3

Though from Volume 7 onwards it'll be a different story, as I haven't been able to find the same fangasmically good quality in the raws available for volumes 7-10. And I suck at cleaning other people's scans. ^^;

So basically, what I've done is buy Japanese volumes 7, 8, and 10 from Kinokuniya (they were out of Volume 9 SOBZ) and debinding them to provide (hopefully) better scans. Let's hope morau has some cleaning skillz.

See what I do to provide you with Junjou goodness? XD (everyone starts throwing rotten fruit at morau for her arrogance)

Did I mention how painful it is to debind your own manga and see it (literally) in pieces? Well...pages, but whatever.

Junjou Egoist Volume 6 Act 10

Just a few things I'd like to say first -

morau's scanlation sharing policy:

I don't mind you uploading in some other forum, website, or community, however please take the time to do two things-
  1. You must leave the credits page in the folder with the scanlations and credit me (if it isn't the most obvious rule ever in the world of scanlations :3)
  2. Please drop me a line through LJ, email, entry comments, whatever, with the place you're uploading it to, just so I know where my stuff is going.
This keeps morau happy, and happy morau gives you more releases.

morau's friending policy:

I friend everyone. It may take minutes, hours, or days, but I'll friend you back if you add me. If I somehow missed friending you back, you're always welcome to thwap me with a reminder somewhere, like in a comment or an email.


Now, without further ado - short, but sweet - it's EGOIST!

Nowaki and Hiroki always make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. So go get your warm and fuzzy now, at:

Savefile - http://www.savefile.com/files/1605046


As always, enjoy, comment, feed me!

Edit 13/06/2008 - I just realized I forgot to put in a translator's note for page 123:

For those who don't already know - a 'futon' is traditional japanese bedding.
No, not a new chapter release.

Basically, because I like taking the piss out of everything when I can, I decided to create a very short parody series for Junjou, where I basically mess around with the speech bubbles with silly gags and whatever my brain decides to subject you all to :D

I name it - Junjou Fantasist.

Now go download it, read it, laugh at it (or not), and throw cookies, tomatoes or rotten vegetables at me.

Indeed, I was intending to release this chapter earlier, but real life loves getting in the way.

I apologize to everyone who commented (on my LJ or in the junjou_fanatics comm) that I haven't replied to. I read all the comments when I get the chance and someday I'll get around to replying all of them, but for now, I show my appreciation for all of you by trying to get those releases out sooner.

You'll probably notice with this release and the ones in the future, that my scanlation style is evolving as I'm exploring different techniques and fonts, not to mention trying to find a balance between preserving the original meaning and being understandable. Feedback is highly appreciated from everyone, feel free to complain, even.

But anyway, by now I'm sure you're just itching for me to stop talking and just get to the release already, so without further ado - ZOMG SECOND RELEASE LIKE WUT?! :D

Enjoy, comment, feed me :D

I am now officially a scanlator

Well. I think so anyway. :)

So basically I'm now a one-person scanlation group, which will cleverly be named 'morau'. Harhar.

Basically I'm going to be embarking on a quest to scanlate Junjou Romantica Volume 6 onwards, because well, I like it and I have no life. :)

I've already made my first release, Junjou Romantica Volume 6 Act 8, which is available for download at:

MediaFire: http://www.mediafire.com/?dmiiiebamra
Savefile: http://www.savefile.com/files/1541881

Enjoy.

Since my LJ looks like a complete mess currently, if you're just here for the scanlations, please click the 'scanlations' tag to filter out the mess that is my personal life.

Oooh look, QUIZ.



The irony of this result does not escape me considering that I am rarely awake before NOON.

I also have some more photos of my homebrew Moleskine, after a strange burst of creativity hit it and dominated the covers.

WUT?! More photos?Collapse )

Oh, and before I forget yet again, here's the answer to what-the-hell-is-that-thing-I-use-in-my-NIHAO-iconCollapse )

Yeah, so I'm just THAT cheap...

I made my own Moleskine.

Okay, it doesn't look like a Moleskine. I'm not THAT good. But I made my own Moleskine imitation. I would dearly love to say it was my own awesome genius mind that allowed me to do so, but no, I had instructions. THANK YOU, MICHAEL SHANNON.

Follow the fake cut for PHOTOS!Collapse )

I'm actually very proud of myself for constructing this in less than a day with actual household materials. Of course, it actually looks better in the photos than it does in real life, LOL. But I'll be making more and experimenting with fabric covers later on.

New LJ Icon

Look, it smiles like FUJI. And was inspired by Nagayan.

Cookies of love to whoever can guess what it actually IS. (e.g. lamp, doll, cup)

Steal it and be cursed forever.

Random photos

Context: Due to my recent and unsuccessful search for a job, I have acquired a number of new things that I would never EVER consider buying. And a number of things whose price tags would have immediately been eliminated from my 'consider purchasing' list.

Follow the fake cut for randomness :)Collapse )

Bloody Object-Oriented Analysis Must DIE




I seriously feel like torching this entire bloody tutorial project work because it is so DAMN annoying. I mean FINE, if it's assessed like our assignment, which is worth 30%, but this is FOR FUCKING ATTENDANCE. Why the fuck do I have create FORTY entity classes with like 20 attributes and operations and create diagrams of them FOR ONE SINGLE ATTENDANCE MARK. And that's not all, I still have to create fucking TWENTY sequence diagrams. FOR THAT SAME SINGLE ATTENDANCE MARK.

They say it's what we have to do in the real world after we graduate. THAT'S AWESOME. BUT UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CONVENIENTLY FORGET THAT IN THE REAL WORlD WE ONLY HAVE TO CONCENTRATE ON ONE SINGLE PROJECT IN A LARGE GROUP, WE DO NOT HAVE TO JUGGLE THREE OTHER SUBJECTS, AND OMG! WE GET PAID TO DO IT.
