A manga series...

A group of us, not on Animesuki, decided to made a Manga scanlation team. We're looking for a series to scanlate obviously.

What we're looking for has to meet these criteria. We already have some suggestions, but they don't have the Raws or are licensed in English already.

Quote:
1. We need a series that's easy to get raws for or that someone has;
2. A series that is not scanlated or has been dropped for at least 1 volume;
3. Something with demand;
4. Ongoing;
5. Not licensed in English;
So I need your help. It would be deeply appreciated. We need to get started on something.

Thanks in advance.

Addicted to Curry, that manga desperately needs someone to pick it up, though it has 6 volumes scanlated out of 33+.

Keishi Sokan Asami, though it's finished at vol. 18; it has only 1 volume scanlated, and not fully.

Osen has been dropped by scanlating group. First 2 chapters were awesome imo.

Although SCX-Scans and Be With You Scans are supposively working on it I would really like to see another player in March Comes in Like a Lion, also know as Sangatsu no lion or 3 gatsu no lion. It's Chica Umino's current work (of Honey & Clover fame) and the first 10 chapters have been excellent.
I have no idea about the availability of raws or anything like that but I believe that SCX and BWY have been working from the volumes and not from magazine scans, the first volume has been scanlated and three volumes have been released.
While there hasn't been a whole lot of interest so far in the series I think that is mainly due to a lack of scan support as there is a pretty hardcore group of Honey & Clover enthusiasts out there. The series is ongoing in the semi-monthly seinen magazine Young Animal. I don't know if SCX and BWY are planning on continuing after the first volume but they haven't made any releases or announcements in a month and they are both working on a number of other projects.

I don't know if you have read/watched Honey & Clover but it is my favorite anime ever, and from what I've seen so far from 3 gatsu no lion Chica Umino's second work is looking to be right on pace with her first.

Maybe your group can pick up the series Tokyo Innocent. First volume has been scanned but releases have stopped for quiet a while now. Raws are available up to volume 6. Heres a thread I made for the manga:
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=81732

Other series worth mentions:
Enchanter <---- scans stopped at ch 17, raws up to vol. 19
Yamitsuki Marisu <---- dunno if raws are avaiable but I would love to see it scanned.
Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai <---- manga or light novel please, I mean seriously someone really needs to translate this series.

Might add more later...

Thanks for your suggestions guys, we took them in to consideration. In the end we came up with seven mangas - some of which are exceptions to the guidelines.

  • Lucky Star (Exception from Guideline 5)
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Shura no Mon (Exception from Guideline 4)
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Sidooh
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Legend of the Strongest Man Kurosawa (Exception from Guideline 4)
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Jackals (Exception from Guideline 4)
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:
  • Heureka (Exception from Guideline 4)
    Spoiler for Read Synopsis:

These are the ones that we selected, out of this, through a poll, we'll be selecting a manga. You can put your preferences here too, that would help a lot as well.

I'll post the results of the poll in weeks time. The winner of the poll is what we'll be scanlating. So look for ward to that
