Hi there,

as the topic already gives away, I am from Scum-Scans(->.com), and I'm looking for a Proofreader for our recently picked up series "Chocolat." I will proceed with a summary, samples, and a job description.

Seinen, Comedy, Romance - Chocolat is a mature comedy series about halforphan Tatsumi Chiyoko whose father was caught in huge debt. Now living with Omugi Matsukichi, an ex-underground king who opened a pastry shop, she gets to know people like Katou Ichigo, an ex-inmate. With people after her father's whereabouts, what will happen to her?


The first volume has been translated by MangaRealm, but unfortunately, they dropped the project. So for it not to go to waste, we have picked it up and released three chapters of volume two so far - just in case you were wondering about those, on first sight, rather randomly chosen examples. You can download all our releases on our website, MangaRealm's volume one is availabe in our channel. I'll gladly provide you with more in case there should be a request for it.

Alright, on to the actual request. All our Proofreaders are required to know Japanese and English, as our definition of proofreading does not only cover correcting possible English mistakes, but assuring the accuracy of the actual translation by using the Japanese raw as a referrence as well. As things are I have scripts of the entirity of volume two, translated from the Chinese version. Naturally, these scripts have been altered by the Chinese publisher, and due to that, extensive "J-checking" is required. Note that Chocolat is a Seinen manga, thus you won't be able to find any furigana. Therefore, Japanese starters won't be of any use to me, please apply only if you can read the raw chapter provided and think you can handle the task.

You can either use this thread to get in touch,
send a mail to contact[at],
or give us a message in our IRC-channel
"This has been a pervert community announcement." =D
