I had faith and procrastinated a bit, but unfortunately, no one sent me raws for Volume 06. 🙁
As a temporary solution, I took pictures of each page with my cell phone, uploaded them to my computer and edited them in an image editor, so that they were nicely readable, but that whole process took me over an hour for mere 20 pages. You might think that is no big deal, but it is quite the boring task at the same time.
I want to translate and not spent hours photographing some pages of a book.
So let me get this clear: Please get me some digital raws. Pretty please with cherry on top.
I hate abandoning stuff midday, unless it totally sucks and is not worth my time, so I will definitely bring Vol 6 to a closure, since I already started it now.
But if I still do not get any digital raws for the coming volumes, I am afraid that I will have to drop the project.
Do not see this as a threat. I do have all the physical books, so I am not some shady wannabe-translator craving for donations, but 1) I have no scanner, and 2) I am a translator, not a raw provider.
Thus, I am simply stating that it will be impossible for me to continue my effort for this series without digital raws. You can hate me for it or not, but that fact will not change.
What you can do, though, is provide me with scans or find someone, who can. I would really appreciate it.
In the meantime, the release speed for the chapters of Vol 06 will be drastically delayed. Remember, I need to take a picture of each single page and the next chapter is already 70 pages long.
There might be even months without a release, so be prepared.
The prologue is definitely the only release in March and I am not certain if I will get c01 done for April. We will see.
