I've already posted one on sama a long time ago. This is the other one, which I just did.
You spend a whole year trying to be disciplined and doing everything you're supposed to but then you forget to translate some porn. This is from kitou sakeru and I meant to post it before comiket 92 (last summer), where he was going to release his Lucoa book, in order to raise awareness for this great artist in hopes maybe someone would see him and pick up and translate his Lucoa book.
Funnily enough, his Lucoa book got translated but no-one batted an eye to his other works.

You heard the man. He wants to make more boku girl doujins, so go buy this doujin in bulk to send him the message boku girl doujins = $$$.
It only took half a year. Better late and low quality than never.
I might delete these later on.
And since it is a sadpanda thread, here's the raw:https://exhentai.org/g/941460/e695aad946/
HOLY SHIT SUDDENLY SAMACONTENT
So did you do the typesetting and translating and everything on your own?
And yeah I remember you posting something about translating a doujin a few months ago in some other thread.
Yeah, I did. I'm confident enough in the translation but the "cleaning"/typesetting is a different story.
Yeah, that was me.
Anyway I saved it so I might upload it sometime since you said you're not.
Thanks a bunch for this man
The typesetting is great though, nothing to worry about.
Thanks for posting this I was wondering if you were going to finish this when you mentioned it in the blog thread ages ago
good job! It was very cute.
In case you're wondering, the page that I kept putting off translating was >>12366 because it felt so pointless and the writing was all messed up. Thinking about what font to use was enough to make me tired.>>12277
Hell yeah, I’ve fapped to this before. Nice to see it translated. If nobody uploads it to sadpanda, I will in a few days.
Oh, and nice work. It’s really well done.

Do you guys back up your favorites? I've started using HappyPanda and it's super convenient. I'm at just over 500 galleries now.
Am I retarded if I've never even heard of HappyPanda
Usually I keep my favorites on a .txt file with the URL and title, sometimes with a couple of tags to remind myself what it was about
I know there's a favorites function but I've never used it because I'm retarded or something

Raicow only seems to look good in fanart
Also she canon has inverted nipples
File: it's joke.png (342.16 KB, 780x744) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
I almost forgot: the translated name is "Getting raped by mommy Raikou: the book"
Raikou's design is sex distilled to its essence. The fact she is insane in her love only makes this hotter. Insane enough she turns non-incest into incest and then back into non-incest. Her changing between an overbearing mother figure and the use of the term "master" murks the waters even more. It was an instant favourite the moment I saw it in exhentai.
I may have gone overboard with the mommy talk and I decided to experiment a little with fonts since it's specially hard in this doujin to distinguish who is saying what without the near instant perception you get from glancing at their japanese speech patterns. Also different fonts according to the writing in the original raw (messy fonts for messy handwriting). Plus, I did a couple of cleaning and redrawing here and there too but I don't know how much it stands out. Plus, I don't play fate/GO so I may have gotten some lingo wrong. Tell me what you think!
As usual, I'll delete this after a while. Feel free to do as you must.
Why does the "your requests look automated" error show up at the worst possible times?
eh you don't play FGO? why not!
Go to the blog page in >>12664 for a nice extra.
There's other Raikou books I want to translate. C93 was a Raikou gold mine. Some artoria pendragon books too, but if I got it right there's people already working on those.
Yeah I hear that FGO doujins are outnumbering Touhou and boat sluts now.
We are truly living in the Fate age.
You don't want to open that can of worms…>>12672
I wonder for how long, though. Kancolle had the wind in its favour for a while but it's beginning to die down. Still, I don't see touhou ever recovering. Too many smartphone games, too much marketing, not enough fans to go around.
Bad experience with gatcha games ey? anyways Touhou is literally old news, I have a folder with hundreds of Touhou pictures that I haven't added to for like a whole year, It's just boring now really.
That only makes it better.
Good god, I need a Raikou in my life.

I don't, but I wish I did…
Aw man, why'd you delete the whole thing? I didn't save it because my PC was out for repairs for the last three weeks. Anyone else have it?
You've got a new slightly crazy lovey-dovey borderline reverse rape doujin now so it should do the trick.
Shit, but I'm a bigger fan of Boku Girl. Goddamnit, my PC fucked me over!
Post the last thing you fapped to, and judge each others taste. No bully though.
Mine was the Raikou doujin in this thread, the amount of "mommy" made me a bit uncomfortable but she's still pretty hot.
Was it the overuse of the word, or that fact that it alludes to incest? I'm weirded out by incest but for me the context is enough to detach it from that fetish, it's more yandere than anything.
What about the fonts and the redrawing? Did they get in the way of your uh, enjoyment?>>12693
If there's really absolutely no-one who saved it then I might dump it again but honestly right now I don't feel like it. I did warn I'd delete it eventually.>>12699
This artist is sublime and his vision of Takane is great but the prolapse at the end always turns me off.
Sibling or cousin incest I can get into just fine but mother/son or father/daughter stuff always turns me off. Not sure why.
Probably because the idea of fucking your mom or fucking your daughter is weird to you. It's weird to me too
its probably a bit of the over use, but also the word itself. I don't think I would have been taken out of it if it was something else. I knew it wasn't incest but the amount of "mommy" made it kind of feel like it I guess.
>>12705>the idea of fucking your mom or fucking your daughter is weird to you
It is, but I have a sister as well and so is the idea of fucking her. My dick is just able to separate the fiction from reality in one case and not the other. I guess there's an argument that father/mother incest is more deviant than the other kinds, so that's probably what it is.
>>12703>If there's really absolutely no-one who saved it then I might dump it again but honestly right now I don't feel like it. I did warn I'd delete it eventually.
If you upload it in a rar, I can download that and then dump it myself or post it to exhentai if you want. I thought others in the thread would be doing that, but I guess not.
Hopefully this gets a translation soon. Futa on female is the hottest stuff ever.
PC incest smacks more of abuse and conditioning than BS incest, which is probably the problem
BS incest is usually 'pure love', and even when it's basically rape it's a bit more gushing than PC incest, which always gives the vibe of being kind of nefarious and invested.
Believe it or not, I actually toned it down a little. In the original script Raikou uses a more formal term that could be translated as "mother" while MC uses "mama". I went for "mommy" because a quick research showed me that's how the western fanbase addresses her. Plus, it's a term with more leeway for fetishism than "mother". Also in >>12660 for example, Raikou is going the extra mile and literally saying "pour all your son semen into mother's womb". There's also as many instances of the word "mother"/"mama" as the number of times I wrote "mommy".
This might get in the nerves of people who are into it for the incest but >>12668
's pic tells the whole story.>>12736
Yeah, that's uh, good.
I'm already working on something else but I might give this a try. That uploader gets a lot of flak for uploading low quality versions though.
I love that there's separate versions without and with tanlines. I wish every doujin had that feature.
It's the worst when all the semen flies out of the vagina, internal xrays are way way way better
How long did this one take
Lots of words from an author that writes a lot. This was fun to translate in many different ways. Hentai like this proves you don't need hardcore stuff or break taboos to make something smoking hot. Shugaha is cuddles. Grade A wife material (except when she spikes your drink with aphrodisiac on a whim).>>12836
I think it's a mix of semen, sweat and Shugaha squirting. It gives the image a feeling of motion or impact so I forgive it.
Translation was on the spot, but typesetting was like a week. I had 10 pages done by february 12th to try to post it on valentine's, but for the already stated reasons I decided not to and slowed down. Just looking at the number of speech bubbles made it feel like a daunting task and I had a little trouble with the afterword but it was fun.
Actually, it was a week. This was uploaded on exhentai on the 10th of this month.
Meanwhile I think I learned how to make jpg images not lose their quality in GIMP but I'm not completely sure.
This is good stuff, thanks again for your hard work!
File: stitch.jpg (6.5 MB, 5120x3592) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Yeah, you saved them as Q100 JPEGs, which does mean they're lossless, but that's the worst way to go about it.
Take the first (non-cover) page as an example. At least it's grayscale, I'll give you that, but it's still over 5 MB. Compare that to saving the same image as a grayscale PNG, where it drops to only 3.8 MB, a 25% reduction.
JPEG is optimized for lossy compression, and using it in lossless mode is pretty much always wrong. For a "high quality" JPEG, Q95 with subsampling is basically transparent for most purposes; if you want an actual lossless format, use PNG. If you don't think GIMP is good at compressing PNGs, send them through PNGCrush afterwards.
Regarding the stitch of the front and back covers, running it through PNGCrush got it down to 10.5 MB; still a bit too big to post here, but a 30% reduction from the 15 MB you had. As a Q95 JPEG, which I would never recommend for archiving but which is fine for sharing on an imageboard, it's only 6.5 MB, with little to no visible artifacting. As a test, you can overlay this JPEG version on the original, lossless version, and set the layer blending to "difference", to see which pixels are off and by how much.
I didn't test with every picture, but I did save some of the pages as png to check file sizes and I did get some smaller sizes with some and larger with others, so I stuck with jpg because the only thing I know about this is that png = high quality and file size and jpg = lower quality and file size except when images had a small set of well defined colors, for which png is better. I messed around with the jpg save settings after these tests, though, and honestly I couldn't be bothered to keep going because I'm pretty much doing things without understanding how it's all supposed to work. It doesn't help that most tutorials I find online deal with photoshop (maybe because it doesn't have these issues) and others say "do X until you feel it's just right." After seeing the file sizes of other translators and seeing theirs aren't much different from the raws they're using I half gave up on complex solutions to bring down the file size (though I'm looking at it now and the images I've edited have a combined 19MB increase over the raws…).
I didn't know such a thing as PNGCrush existed. Thank you for all the info, I'll try to make use of it in the future (though I'll try to keep posting lossless stuff here, if you can even use that term after running things through pngcrush). Do you have any advice regarding jpeg raws? I went and messed with those just now to check file sizes and they're always bigger than the raw regardless of whether I save as jpg and png. Should I just export as png and run through PNGCrush? Saving them as PNG is giving me more than double the size of a lossless jpg.
Do you have experience in this area? Is my typesetting competent?
Sorry for all the questions.
File: artifacts.jpg (6.41 KB, 500x500) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Okay, I'll try to outline it simply.
JPEG is a lossy format, which means it will discard some information to make the rest compress better, while PNG is a lossless format, which means it will never discard information.
JPEG has a quality scale that goes from 1 to 100, which determines how much information it's allowed to discard. The higher you set it, the more information will be kept, up to quality 100, which is lossless. But since JPEG compression is optimized for being at least a little bit lossy, saving JPEGs at quality 100 will often result in larger files than an equivalent PNG. Both have the exact same information, but since PNG is designed to be lossless, it has better compression.
PNG actually allows many variants on its compression algorithm, and while some tend to be better than others, the only way to know for sure which is best is to try all of them. PNGCrush is a tool which automates this process, trying each type of compression and saving the file using the best one. This is useful because many programs that can write PNGs simply compress them all the same way, which is often suboptimal. However, remember that PNG is always lossless, so PNGCrush isn't discarding any of the information, just packing it more efficiently.
There's also stuff about color spaces and subsampling, and what type of image content compresses better and so on, but that's the basic difference between the formats.
If you saved these files as JPG because you wanted "lower quality and file size", then you messed up by saving them as Q100. Turning the quality down a bit will let you actually take advantage of JPEG's strengths and reduce the filesize significantly, at the cost of some lost information. This is where "do X until you feel it's just right" comes in; you'll want to test a few compression levels and see which is the best compromise between size and apparent quality.
If you wanted lossless files, then yes, saving as PNG and optionally running through PNGCrush is the way to go. Or you could do both, by saving the grayscale pages as PNG and the color pages as JPEG.
As for typesetting, I don't really know, but as a reader it looks fine.
Oh, one other thing: I don't know what sort of output options GIMP gives you, but if it's anything like Photoshop, you probably don't get a 1-100 scale to choose from, but some presets instead.
In that case, I'd recommend using IrfanView to test out different settings, since its JPEG save dialogue has a good set of options, and then ImageMagick for batch processing once you've figured out what settings you want to use.
File: 捕获.PNG (25.61 KB, 586x577) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Not him but GIMP does in fact give you the entire scale, along with some other options. My version is unfortunately in Chinese but you can see the scale there.
I am really sorry. You've spoon-fed me a lot of information (and I knew about part of it) but I'll probably use none of it. I've been looking into PNGCrush and no. I'm not going to dabble into linux commands or batch scripting again. I don't have time to get familiar with all this stuff.
>If you saved these files as JPG because you wanted "lower quality and file size", then you messed up by saving them as Q100
I wanted to save them in a smaller file size so I used jpg. It didn't occur to me that keeping the same image quality means keeping or increasing the file size but I acted on the notion jpg files are smaller by default.

This is what the menus look like when I export as jpg and png, except that for jpg the advanced options are hidden unless I open them.
I made the settings you see for jpg default, while those for png are gimp's defaults. I decided to take a look at the boku girl doujin again and I notice that the switch from png raws to jpg translation didn't lose any of the quality and only added 4mb to the total size relative to the total size of the raws. The translated png's are also significantly bigger than the jpg translations. My first try at a translation was the Rui doujin I posted a long time ago and the same thing happens (Grayscale jpg < RGB jpg < RGB png < grayscale PNG; at the time I posted RGB jpg I think). The results with these two doujins pretty much dictated how I was going to export images moving forward but I guess those raws were either extremely high quality allowing all sorts of uneducated messing around or so low quality whatever I did didn't even matter. The Raikou doujin's raws on the other hand were jpg and when I tried to extract them using the same file type there was visible loss of quality, so I switched to png and the result was twice the size of the raws, further cementing my faith in jpg magic.
For the record, I don't remember the defaults used to export the jpg's for the first two doujins since I only messed around with that part when I noticed I was running out of disk space from having too much raw manga on my computer (and GIMP's .xcf files are ridiculously big too, and when I tried to understand why that is the case the ever so helpful linux folk were advising a simple designer to open up his computer and add more RAM).
If you're going to be a one-man scanlation team and post your work publicly, then you'll have to get familiar with this stuff.
That said, there's nothing tough about PNGCrush, you just run pngcrush in.png out.png
and it does all the work. Based on what you've mentioned about filesizes, I suspect that GIMP is just terrible at compressing PNGs, so that's a necessary step if you're going to use them.
If you use JPEG, then luckily GIMP seems to have all the options you need. Again, the advantage of JPEG lies in its lossiness, so bump the quality at least down to 95 to start, and for color images, set the chroma subsampling to 4:2:0. You can also get slightly better results by making them progressive and by using floating-point DCT.
Take the first (non-cover) page of the Raikou doujin. Your version is 1.34 MB. Running it through PNGcrush produces an identical image at 1.05 MB. Saving as a Q95 JPEG further drops it to 706 KB. That's almost a 50% reduction, and the resulting image is only .13% different from the original.

>>12865>That said, there's nothing tough about PNGCrush, you just run pngcrush in.png out.png and it does all the work.
The problem is I don't even know that much.
Though, I ended up finding some compiled version of PNGCrush that does the job without me having to write things in a command line or even understand where the filed on the PNGCrush page are supposed to go so all is well. I tested it and got the same results you mentioned in >>12846
Now I'll probably repost every doujin I've ever worked on. One image at a time…

>>12943>as long as there is no incest
What the heck is wrong with incest?
You think I can read this shit?
One final question (I promise nothing, though) regarding jpeg and GIMP.
If I want to keep the quality from raw to translation, wouldn't checking the box that says "use quality settings from original image" accomplish that without me having to mess around too much with the options? Or are those pointers you recommended meant to keep the quality and lower the file size on top of that?
The resolution is perfectly sufficient for reading.
The thing is, that option isn't "keep original quality", but "keep original quality SETTINGS". So if the source file was saved at, say, Q80, then that option will just save your new file at Q80 as well. It doesn't actually preserve any of the original data identically; you're still going to get artifacts on top of artifacts (as with any lossy-to-lossy conversion), and they'll be much worse the lower the original quality was. It might look good enough sometimes, but you're better off figuring out an appropriate quality level yourself.
Of course, once you settle on a quality that looks good for one page, you can just use that as a default for every page of the same type, and only change it if the results are noticeably bad.

What isn't normal is that she's both looking for it and is hypercompetent. Also, the author has weirdly good reasoning and dynamics for how all this works, like (example) the idea that slimes are actually similar to anenomoe and have transparent cartilege they form tentacles with.
