It's great Meta Naito registered in KRR.

He would be a great help on the translation front, along with his experience with forums.

Well it seems my post finally went through, I was awaiting approval and kinda forgot about this until now that I checked back, really didn't expect it would take so long.

I kinda haven't touched the mock-up since then because I didn't even know if my post would go through... :hide:

But hey now that it has I can get back to thinking about this stuff, I'll need some time, for now here's the one thing I played with, though it isn't much:
Image
Lorem ipsum is just dummy text in case anyone is wondering, also the font is CC Wild Words but its a placeholder, would definitely want something else for titles and big headers like this. The text borders are pretty simple photoshop layer styles, the background covering the original text was a solid color with some noise added so its less jarring, though it still stands out I feel.

This page in particular (117, Kirby GCN) is tricky though and makes me think how there might be a lot to redraw and if its even worth it, it has japanese text over art of Kirby and covering it up means chopping Kirby off or having to find the art and paste him on top and that's getting into basically recreating the page which isn't what this is about.

Wild Words is a great font, and it's one I use a lot, actually.
VAGRounded BT is also a good one (if I'm not mistaken, the Kirby anime subbing team used it for it's subtitles) and I think it would fit pretty well in the book.
However, I don't really think that they're similar to the original Japanese fonts they used in the book.
I'm looking for some fonts that match, but of course, if anyone has a font to recommend, it will be great.
The mock-up looks pretty good as an idea.
I will post some of mine later.
The text over Kirby doesn't seems to be a huge problem.
Most of these artworks are very easy to find online, even this one of the Kirby GC game.
Say, dalp3000, can I consider you a member of the team?
If yes, do you have any preference on what to work on?

Sounds like I finally got my posts up. Yeah, I will be pretty busy, but part of my busyness is practicing and improving my Japanese anyway. Translation practice is something I do for fun. I'll send you a copy of what I have so far if you have an e-mail. I think a project like this would work best with a google drive where everyone contributing can see, comment, edit, add, etc.

Thank you very much, Tayo!
Yeah, I agree with using Google Drive. It's one of the best options.
I'm sorta busy too, but I'm working on some mock-ups to give an idea of how the should look like.
I'll post it sometime soon. :)

I know I'm late to the party, but I'm willing to help out in any way that I can. I just don't know Japanese, unfortunately.

Thanks! :lol:
Don't worry. We do need more translators, but any help on any field is welcome.
On what do you plan to work on? Image editing, Grammar Fixing, Direction... ?

I just finished up my job today, so I may have more free time for the next few weeks before I go back up to school.

I've been busy lately, but I'll post my mock-ups anytime soon.

I'd probably be better for grammar or some image editing. I'm up for whatever you decide.

Tell me when you decide it, so I can add you to the member list. :)

It's really awesome that you're all doing this! I've downloaded all of the scanned pages. It's amazing just how full of content the book is - info on the games, anime, and manga, quite a lot of which I've never even seen before! I know a lot about the games and the anime, but I never got to read much of the manga series so it's quite new to me.

Is there a list of people who are already working on this project and what they're doing? I'm also interested in seeing what I could do to help out. My skills in Japanese are limited, but I can still provide proofreading and image editing services for the project (I'd just need the translated text and a note about where it goes in the book). I'm quite skilled in Photoshop and I use it every day, so it wouldn't be a problem for me.
