Our first project is the one-volume spinoff of He is My Master, called Maid wo Nerae!, and should be out in 1-3 weeks.

Series we will be targeting after that are:
Otogi no Machi no Rena
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

Feel free to suggest us a series in a comment here or email us at kuroihasuscan@gmail.com.

We're currently looking for help with all positions, so take a look at the post below this!

Help wanted!

I've decided that since there are a few things I'd like to see translated that haven't been or have been on hold for a long time or dropped by their groups, that I'd attempt to start a small scanlation group myself.  I'm a capable editor, but unfortunately my Japanese is the shit. 

Currently looking for help with all positions, in this order of need:
Translator > raw provider > proofreader > editor.


Must be seriously interested in helping and able to produce within the guidelines listed below.  
A limited level of commitment to KHS work is fine, but you MUST be able to produce what you say you can and not quit in the middle of a project.

Must be able to translate Japanese to English with good grammar and spelling.

Raw provider:
Must have access to the magazine or tankobon of the series and a scanner they can use and/or be able to scour the internet for raws (using Share or other means).

Must have good English spelling and grammar, though doesn't necessarily have to be a native speaker.
Right now it's not worth sending the files back and forth when the editor can just do this fairly quickly.  This will be done in addition to being an editor.

My standards aren't going to be too extremely high here, but must have access to Photoshop and be capable of basic cleaning and typesetting of manga, namely: adjusting levels, cropping, resizing, a small-medium amount of cloning, splicing two-page spreads together, etc.  Must be decent at copy-editing.

More info:
The series we'll be doing will be predominantly seinen-ish manga, but there can always be exceptions, and I'm open to suggestions.  

If you're interested or have any questions, please email us at kuroihasuscan@gmail.com.

Serious applicants only, please.
