Recommended Posts

hell-o

i'm interested in making a project of the following:
https://archive.org/details/roadtodragonquestmanga/

i can handle ocr/typesetting/layout/etc, looking for someone(s) interested in contributing the translation gruntwork

i've done a few small projects of similar nature before:

- https://twitter.com/offalynne/status/921250359271673856

as it's a large project i'm glad to take it piecemeal/at-pace chapter by chapter.

hmu here or via email, alviscera@gmail.com

Your best bet would be to network with translators by sending out emails. Lots of translators take commissions but be prepared for a hefty fee due to the size of the volume. Bakamanga updates would be a good directory to start with, and then it's just a matter of finding the next available person.

Nice, that is great work, never knew a manga like that existed until you mentioned it earlier.

Congratulations for your effort, I only have seen this book on japanese and it seems not to be intention to translate it to english.

There are a lot of manga websites that would love to host a link to your translation work.

 

Keep us posted!

 

Regards!

This is an incredible achievement, thanks a million for getting the ball rolling! The story presented therein is slightly fictitious, but it will still help clarify how the series came to be for people not already familiar--Torishima's involvement, the Enix contest, etc.

Is it OK if I place it on the main Den site?
