Musashi Quality looking for occasional cleaning help
(4 posts, 2841 views) Posted: 2697d 13h, 57m ago by unnes in Recruitment
Yep, it's Bill Murray from the terrific movie Lost in Translation.

And yes, Photoshop is the de facto standard tool for cleaning and redrawing, thanks to its versatility with layers and various filters and brushes/pens. You could get by with other programs like GI ...
Musashi Quality looking for occasional cleaning help

We've found our guy!

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Surprise! We're not looking for a translator or full-time "WE NEED THIS RIGHT NOW DAMMIT" help.

But sometimes here at Musashi Quality, our release pipeline gets a little clogged as a result ...
Manga Distributor Target of Frequent Hacking
(11 posts, 537 views) Posted: 2731d 3h, 50m ago by unnes in News
Last I spoke to magicbulletgirl, the identity was pretty much obvious -- only one person would want to hack her site and delete scans... and that's her competition for releasing Detective Conan. I'm not going to name names, but the specificity with which ...

I can't help but make a parallel between this and the attempts by the record companies to sell music online back in the heyday of Napster and Share via overpriced and crippled services. It's like this company realized that "Hey, there are a lot of ...

Musashi Quality is looking for some help translating Ai Kora, Hayate the Combat Butler, and Asatte no Houkou (all of which have furigana). If you are willing to translate any of these (or help TL check), please respond here or drop us a line at musashiquality@gma ...

Hayate The Combat Butler Question(Viz media version)

I missed the Death Note reference...


There were two references to Death Note, actually. The first was when Nagi is putting her manga back on the bookshelf. You can see that she drew in a notebook entitled "Death Note". That's the obvio ...
Hayate The Combat Butler Question(Viz media version)
(30 posts, 7425 views) Posted: 3102d 7h, 40m ago by unnes in Hayate the Combat Butler
Hayate has an incredible number of references in each chapter. We try to make notes on all of them, but inevitably we'll miss a few.

For example, in just the last chapter we scanlated (ch. 50), there were references to:

1) Titanic
2) Death Note
3) Genshiken
4) M ...
Who will our butler-in-debt end up with?

I voted Hinagiku because I like her, but I'm pretty certain he'll either end up with nobody or with Nagi. ...
Highlighting by Scanlator
(1 posts, 623 views) Posted: 3110d 22h, 24m ago by unnes in Suggestions & Bugs
I'm not sure how feasible this would be, but it would be pretty cool to be able to highlight releases by scanlator. I know I tend to keep an eye on certain groups' work, especially those that translate doujinshii and one-shots (like Gaku Gaku and D-W). Sinc ...
Manga to Anime Conversion

Anyone watch the anime? I know there's only a couple of chapters out so far, but what do you think of the conversion to the small screen?

Manga List

Another suggestion regarding the manga list, perhaps also tied in with series stats:

It would be cool to have a way to see how many people have each series on each of their respective lists. You'd be able to see how many people are currently listed as rea ...
Manga List Bug Topic

Quote from Manick
That's the way it originally worked.. but then people suggested that I make it so that it works with the title you submit, which made more sense to me.


Okay, not a big deal... I'll just remove the ones with odd titles and re-add them with th ...
Manga List Bug Topic
(1488 posts, 179021 views) Posted: 3136d 7h, 19m ago by unnes in Suggestions & Bugs
Only potential bug I've found is that when you add a title by an alternative name (e.g. Chibi Vampire for Karin... ack), it shows up in the list with that name, and not the accepted primary name. I suppose you could get around this by adding the name you prefer, b ...
Most Favorite Light-hearted-Type Manga
(30 posts, 3428 views) Posted: 3153d 7h, 19m ago by unnes in Manga General
This is a blatant plug, but I'd recommend these even if I had nothing to do with some of them:

- Ai Kora
- Hayate the Combat Butler
- Midori no Hibi
- Angel Densetsu
- Yotsubato! ...

ADV has reverted back to calling it Utawarerumono.

Although I would have preferred "Underwater Ray Romano."

Any good tutorials?
(11 posts, 7168 views) Posted: 3153d 13h, 26m ago by unnes in Chatter Box
I've seen my fair share of editing tutorials, but most of them are overly simple and tell you common-sense things that anyone who's toyed with Photoshop knows how to do.

p00k has an excellent editing tutorial here, where I picked up a number of tips. I ...

Which part will you pick?

Several people have mentioned the possibility of a guro doujin where Hachibei goes nuts, chops up the girls, and makes a patchwork ideal woman.

I could see it happening. ...

Tooting my own horn a bit here, but Musashi Quality is also scanlating Hayate now. We're working off sharp scans of the original Japanese, so you might want to check out our versions as well.

We just released chapter 42, and 43 is forthcoming. ...
