Vicissitude on October 21st, 2008 at 2:08:57 AM UTC Why thank you, guys.

Tomato, I will warn you that profanity does show up, but only when warranted. At times, our translator will tell us that something is considered vulgar in Japanese, and we'll come up with a "proper" English phrase to use.

Other than that, we also tend to customize the text for different characters. Tetsuzaemon, for example, has a very 'street thug' way of talking, like a dockside footpad. We also went on the character designs to create a persona for the guys who speak Kansai-ben. Gin's got a southern drawl, Shinji looks (and therefore, according to us, talks like a British mod, Hiyori's got the Alabama trailer trash look going. For Lisa, I wanted to go with French, but nobody else could really see that. So we decided with a more upper-class British accent, though it shows very little in translation.

blizzardtomato on October 21st, 2008 at 6:59:39 AM UTC As long as you keep it to a minimal. Most of the time profanity just looks like a feeble excuse for not being able to find a good idiom, even in slang. This was obvious between M7 and binktopia: He seems to have a shit brain, versus He looks like a few cans short of a six pack.

Otherwise if there were one thing you could improve, if you wanted it, that would be the thiness of the dots for some textures, for instance the sky & Halibel's skin on page 3 when you look at the picture in real size, less visible in M7 version. ;)

Vicissitude on October 21st, 2008 at 10:12:50 AM UTC We have a set pattern that we use for stuff like that. Each of those dots is just one pixel. Looking at the raw, that's what Kubo's patterns are, too. We try to keep in line with the original art as much as possible.

I hope you look at the tanko raws, not the shitty WSJ raws >_>
Cause that's definetely not how it's supposed to look, just because
Jump wants to save the money for ink...

So yeah, I love the quality of your scans, but the gray patterns make my eyes bleed badly...a uniform gray with added noise looks still best for me.
