Aha, sweet. Was wondering where you went! Holy @$#^ though, I've gotta pick up the pace if I wanna keep up with you. Just have to get my scanner unpacked and set up again...
Volume 12 is pretty good! Kirby befriends a Blipper and keeps him in his swimming pool, Meta Knight looses his mask, the Squeaks find a gingerbread house (i think), Chilly has a concert, the whole gang plays soccer... lots of stuff. Lots of great reaction images too.

Ooo, thanks for the translations, Slime!
Sadly, it might be a few weeks before I can find, unpack, and set up my scanner, but I'll try to get to it as soon as I can. I really want to finish scanning book 11!

I'll be in Denmark for three weeks (20th Aug - 10th Sept) and that's why I am currently scanning the missing chapters of volume 10. They will be uploaded soon.

Should probably update as well. I'm still waiting to set my scanner up. Right now the only place it can fit is a room that's currently under construction, so I have to wait till it's finished. Shouldn't be too much longer.

Fun fact: searching "project mo~pupu" on Google or Startpage will lead to this thread. The tilde (~) is important to add, though. Maybe I can change that :tongue:

Therefore #project mo~pupu! #projectmopupu #projectmopupukirby #もーれつプププアワー #も~れつプププアワー #もーププ #も~ププ #kirby #rainbowresort #project4KRR #4KRR #projectmopupu4KRR #kirbymanga #kirbyscan #scanproject #mo~pupuscan
might come in handy.

Variations of "mo(~)pupu scan" also work wonders, especially when adding "project" or "kirby".

Omg this manga is hilarious! I only have the first four volumes—had no idea it was still running, and boy is it long now—but I'm glad this exists :) It's pretty different from the Yoshiko and Himekawa series, a lot more crude admittedly but it's certainly got it's own brand of charm. My favorite chapter was in the first volume when the Squeaks are trying to run a grocery store for money.

I'm glad you rediscovered this manga, Leirin. In my opinion, the Yoshikawa and Hikawa series are the stranger ones out there, yet I only bought the final volume to each of them to judge (volumes 12 and 25, respectively). My priorities lie with mo~Pupu! and collecting the 4koma manga, slow and steady (and hopefully for as cheap as 200¥).

I have uploaded each of volume 10's chapters now. The book cover will follow soon. Everything is in "raw" quality, i.e. the filesizes are large due to huge pagesize and black/white values that aren't corrected yet. But I would not call this low quality at all.

Hey Slime, since I still can't scan yet, I was thinking of maybe cleaning up some of your scans of book ten? Let me know if that's alright.

In the meantime, I have ordered books 4-7 so that'll bring my collection to books 4-12 once they arrive.

That's totally fine by me. Just choose a chapter other than chapter 4.

Here are some instructions, obsolete or not.
When opening the picture in Photoshop, make sure to switch to grayscales before anything else. You can drag and drop vertical and horizontal lines from the grid, which is useful for rotating. Then crop off the black, adjust b/w levels and paint over speckles that don't belong to the picture and which are visible in 50% zoom. Then "save for web" with the following preset:
PNG-8; adaptive; diffusion; no transparency; no interlaced; 16 colors; 100% dither; no matte; no web snap; image size 50%.

Yo Slime, I was wondering if you wanted to start a blog or something about the manga with me or something. Just a site to post the scans in case something goes wrong here, you know? I think Tumblr has an option to have multiple people running a single blog, so we could start there. Lemmy know in PMs if you think that might be a good idea.

Yup, so we've set up a blog and once everything works smoothly, we'll spread the word.
As for my part, I completed volume 10's raw scan by adding the coloured cover art (already edited bc filesize) to the .zip files of chapters 00 and 15 on MEGA. Chapter 4 is now wholly uploaded in HQ quality. Just check out my general MEGA folder for better overview.
As for the HQ stuff, that's the quality I wish to provide, as it is better image quality at lowest filesize. Yet editing each page is severely time consuming. View chapter 4 as a demonstration of my intent, yet without more members in our team, I will be well served scanning in my spare time and postponing editing.

Stay tuned, pals. :grin:

I guess I can break the ice now: Our blog is still under construction, yet it is basically up and running. You will find it on mopupumanga.tumblr.com (I even hyperlinked it for you). Share the link or reblog our stuff if in possession of a tumblr account to help give more people a chance to read and enjoy Mo~Pupu!

Even if it's still imcomplete, I must say that I'm very excited about how things are going.
And the blog is looking pretty neat too. :)

Haha, thanks. Though, the layout is just a default theme, nothing I really customized or anything. Perhaps I'll fiddle with it and make it a bit more unique at some point, but it functions properly, at least. I should probably edit the "about" page to make a bit more coherent, but man, I'm pretty terrible at writing in general. I'll get around to it eventually.

It seems to have gotten a bit of attention, which is nice. Hopefully it can spread a bit of interest in the manga.

And we better add some notes on copyright everywhere. It feels so unnecessary, I keep forgetting about it, yet it is important.

Maybe at some point I'll remember my tumblr password and send a message there too but in the meantime: OH MAN OH GOSH it sure did make my day to search for this manga on a relative whim and find someone finally scanning (and even translating some of!) after all these years.

I have pretty meager Japanese knowledge but I'd be super happy to help in this endeavor however I can. I'm a graphic designer for a living – I've never done any work cleaning/typesetting manga but I'd be willing to try if it'd possibly be of use. At the very least, you guys have my support and I look forward to seeing more. Thank you for taking on this project.

This project actually died off, it seems...

Remember when you guys were on here and were trying to defeat me? Can you guys do that again? Because I think you accidentally abandoned all projects sometime in late 2016.

Nah, I don't think so - the tumblr page for the project was updated with a new chapter just this past weekend and iirc the updates before that were similarly recent. You should check it out and see what you might've missed!

Oh, yeah, tumblr. Well, they forgot to update here, too!

I guess KRR is dead after all...
