Q&A

Feel free to leave any questions, requests, or concerns here.

Q: Can I reuse your translations and retranslate them into [insert language here]?
A: Go ahead. A brief mention of our group name in the credits would be nice, though unnecessary.

Q: Can I join your group?
A: The two-man workflow is very efficient. We are currently not recruiting. If we need any help, we will ask for it.

Q: You guys screwed [            ] up! Can you fix it?
A: Of course! Please leave us a note somewhere and let us know where we screwed up. We’ll try to put out a v2 of stuff some at some point. We’re willing to accommodate most requests, provided it doesn’t end up being a ridiculous amount of work.

Q: I want to give you money! How can I do this?
A: We’re flattered that you liked our scans enough to want to give us money, but we’re doing this as a hobby. Instead, we suggest you buy a copy of the manga (in JP or eventually in whatever language you prefer, if any of our series ever get licensed) and support the author!

    Hello, I have a question regarding possibly working together on scanlating Dungeon Meshi. Our group was actually about 60% done with scanlating Ch 2, but since you guys went and released your version earlier than us, we’re now in a bit of a dilemma. Please contact yeaseul0904@yahoo.com to discuss things further.

    • We’re really flattered that you like our work enough to want to donate to us, but since we’re just doing this as a hobby it wouldn’t feel right getting money for it. If you want to show your appreciation, please buy Dungeon Meshi in Japanese or hopefully one day in English! Thanks again for your kind words, it really means a lot!

    • Hard to say, when we’ve got enough free time we can get them out every few days. But if we’re busy it may end up being a week or so. It depends on the series, the time we’ve got, and so on. So we really can’t give a solid answer!

    Hi guys, a big fan of your works here. I wanted to suggest a partnership for the martial arts series “Shura no mon” by Masatoshi Kawahara after your main three series are completed. I’m willing also to provide scans and do typesetting (I don’t know how to redraw or make japanese dissappear from pages) I just need translation scripts and of course, a three man team for these series will make it a lot faster. Let me know if it’s possible to add it to a slot after Golden kamuy is caught up 🙂

    • Thanks for the offer, but we’ll have to pass. We’re very busy right now and it seems extremely unlikely that we will catch up to Golden Kamuy for a long, long time. Even if by some miracle we did catch up to all our series, we’re not really all that interested in working on Shura no Mon. Sorry! I hope you find another group that is willing to help you with it!

    I’ve been wondering… Golden Kamuy’s glossary are not something an average person would know… How did you gather those information?

    Like

    • Usually we just find our info through a mixture of Google searches, Wikipedia (usually Japanese Wiki) and a few Japanese-language sites we know that try to point out some of the references in each chapter of GK. There’s really no one perfect place that collects everything though, so it’s a little time-consuming to find the information (especially for information on Ainu culture or on rarer plants and animals that don’t have much written about them.) There’s still some stuff that we completely miss (since Noda likes to make lots and lots of visual references and parodies), but we’re always trying to find as much as we can! Thanks for asking!

    • Sure thing! The default font we use in Dungeon Meshi is Wild Words. We also use Sylfaen for narrative text, Augie for text that’s outside of a speech bubble, CC Astro City for SFX text, and GoodDog for the kobold. If you’re interested in various scanlation fonts, this is a very good resource we’ve made use of that shows examples of a wide variety of different fonts for different purposes:

    Hi, I’ve purchased Yen Press Dungeon Meshi volume 3, and in there they translated “humans” as “tall-men”. I can somewhat understand “halfling” and “half-foot”, but “tall-men” sounds especially weird. What do the original Japanese say? For context, it’s mentioned when Kuro sniffed out who stole the treasure bugs and also when Namari helped capture the Undine.

    Like

    • The original Japanese had the word for “human” in kanji characters, and the furigana next to it said “tall-man.” So what Yen Press had is not wrong, they just chose to use the “tall-man” reading instead of the “human” reading. For our part, we decided to go with human because we prefer how it looks, but if there ends up being some reason in the story why “tall-man” might be preferable, we may end up changing the word to tall-man/tall-men as well.

    • Sorry for the late response!

      At the moment, we’re trying to get decent quality ebook raws. The manga has already been released, but we’ve been having trouble ripping the raws. In addition, right now Arasa Quest is basically on hiatus for us. We’re too busy with our other series to give it the proper attention. We will probably make an announcement soon, in case another group wants to pick it up. Otherwise, we will try to get to it at some point (but we can’t promise anything).
