ReDrop’s “Spring’s Chun-Li Book”

Here’s another new scan, this time a Redrop doujin featuring Chun-Li and Viper. I have the copybon that goes with it, but haven’t scanned it yet, so keep an eye out for it maybe next week or something. Also, I have some other really good things coming up soon, including some new Yuki Yanagi. Excited yet? (more…)

Nagaradamaya’s “X Jump 2010-12”

Okay, rant time.  This may piss some people off, but fuck it, I don’t care.  Now, as anyone who has downloaded my scans probably realizes, I like high-quality, high-resolution scans. That’s not to say I turn up my nose at anything that doesn’t meet my level of quality (let’s face it, there aren’t many scanners out there who produce to that level); however, I do think there should be a minimal acceptable level.  Part of the reason for this is because any time a scan comes out for an artist or circle I like that ISN’T at that minimum level, I feel a need to rescan; I’d actually rather not have to do that.  I’d rather spend my time scanning stuff that hasn’t been scanned before. So when I see a scanner releasing wave after wave of new books that are whipped out with virtually no attempt taken to clean the scans in what seems to me an effort to do the equivalent of posting “first!” in a forum thread or blog comment section, as well as capturing a lion’s share of pay-per downloads.  I think it makes it even worse that donations were solicited beforehand; I’ll admit I didn’t pay a great deal of attention to the effort, but I don’t recall any disclaimer saying the donations would be used to make *crappy* scans.  I honestly expected reasonable quality scans out of the project (at a level of typical Japanese scanners, at least); I might even have donated were I not a scanner myself with plans to purchase and scan books of my own.  However, if I had donated, I would certainly be asking for a refund at this point.  I would have expected reasonable quality, even if it meant a slower release schedule.  I also found the attitude of the scanner to be particularly galling; in essence, it was “it sucks the quality has to be so low, but that’s the way it has to be to get them out fast.”  Well, why do you have to get them out fast?  To beat your “competition”?  I honestly just don’t get it.

Now, some of you may be thinking “So what if they’re low quality? Someone else will rescan it.”  However, as with bad translations, a poor scan drops the chances of getting a reasonable scan (let-alone a high-quality one) to near nil.  There are VERY few rescanners out there besides me; most people would rather scan something new, afterall, and can you really blame them?  The first scan out will pretty much always be the primary one floating around, and will almost always get more hits/downloads/etc. and is more likely to be the version translated, and then it is very unlikely to get re-edited using the higher quality scans.  The only real exception to this, IMO, should be new scanners who are trying (and willing!) to learn to scan better; it is a learning process, and it takes time.

Anyway, now that the rant is out of the way, on to the doujin. This one is an anthology, and features primarily a Dragonball story by Bang-You.  I guess the woman’s name is Lunch or something.  I dunno, I’m not a Dragonball fan.  Bang-You needs to do some delicious Sayla or Rosamia pr0ns one of these days.  :D There’s some other shorts by other artists as well.  Anyway, enjoy!
