Fuck You

I'd just like to say that I'm the kind of person who ignores most of what I don't like instead of seeking confrontation. That means that if I never replied to your mail, then I probably didn't like it. It's nothing personal. Frequently, I just get too frustrated at the content of the mail to answer lucidly. However, one thing that I am no longer able to ignore is how many people ask me about Pokemon Special.

I guess this is expected since the gap between volume 39 and 40 is somewhat exceptional, and I never really openly addressed it. But let me just say,
FUCK YOU, USE BULBAPEDIA, YOU LAZY PIECE OF SHIT
Yes, there's nothing on there, which means that I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT EITHER. Eat caps-lock and deprecated HTML.
Update: It has been confirmed to release at the end of May.

Also, to the people who are telling me to get older issues for the BW chapters I missed,
FUCK YOU, IDIOTS WHO'VE NEVER MANAGED MORE THAN $20
FYI, you guys will be $4.08 in the red by the end of next month: $25 for the last issue of Sho4, $15 for CCI 2012-02 (released in December), $15 for CCI 2012-03 (released a few days ago), $15 for CCI 2012-04 (releases in the end of February), and $15 for PF 2012-02 (released in December). No, older issues are not an option.

Finally, to those who asked me about HGSS,
FUCK YOU, EDUCATE YOURSELVES ABOUT HOW PS WORKS
Well, I guess this is understandable, but for the record: Pokemon Special is not serialized normally. There were only 5 Platinum chapters and 14 HGSS chapters in the magazines; the rest are being added on to the volumes. Even if I spend hundreds of dollars to get the HGSS chapters, I'll still only get about a quarter of the volumes, so just fucking wait for the volumes.

Again, this is nothing personal. Fuck you and have a nice day.

    1. This is something that has always bothered me with stuff like this. I have friends who both scan and sub, and I see how frustrated they get. So here's an apology and a thanks.

      I apologize on the behalf of those who rely on you for PS. Many fans seem to forget that you are volunteering to do this and have no obligation to do so whatsoever. I thank you for still continuing the series even though there are numerous ignorant morons who pester you. I thank you for allowing me to read something that I would not be able to otherwise. I owe you, its not the other way around.

    2. I can't see why people have to ask you for the scans when they can get it free from a website that i found using google.

      What's more, the BW chapters that you missed aren't the only ones in english posted there! There are also the HGSS chapters! Most of the scans there, of course, are all thanks to anon. So we should thank him for it :)

  2. I'd rather read some ryuushika.

  3. I totally understand your madness. People seem just to be too lazy to look for information themselves and just ask whoever they know knows about the things they want to know ... I for myself am often asked if i know where to read the HGSS chapters or why some BW chapters are "missing" and "messed up" on the websites where you can read manga online for I seem to be the one who knows most about PokéSpe in my language-speaking fandom. Most people don't even seem to be interested in who is the one who scanlates the chapters, even if I mostly tell them to thank you here. They just tend to ignore me in that case.
    I for myself totally appreciate your work - so, thanks for all that you're doing!

  4. We all need to calm down. JB2448's site has scans of the "Missing" BW chapters & people are making ad-hoc translations of HGSS.

    It's ok. People are stepping up to fill in the vacuum using the Chinese scans so just tell them that.

    As for funds... might be able to send something if I can scrape some cash up.

    1. Oh, the Viz ones? I was wondering what the other guy was talking about.

      Delete
    2. Yeah. I'm scanning the ones that weren't being scanned by you from the original Japanese release.

      Delete
    3. Yep the VIZ ones ^'s scanning. While it's a fanrip, most of us have read the Chuang Yi fanrips so it's nothing new. :P

      So yeah, no need to get all hyped up about the pressure to scanlate the chapters you missed. Just quietly hook them up to JB's site and all is well.

      In the end us in the PS fan-community do have to thank you for giving us timely releases of the DPP, BW arcs. It's nice to know we're more or less caught up with the Japanese release due to your hard work a/n/on. :D

      I guess this is an exception to the "check Bulbapedia" thing.

  6. Well considering I have to update said page or more specifically BMGf's Manga release thread then yes "check Bulbapedia" doesn't work yet. xD - Netto

  7. "check bulbapedia" is now justified... :P

  8. I'm sorry that people have been pestering you about this. The rest of us non-assholes will wait patiently and look forward to the volume, as much as it might suck.

    Thanks for all your hard work!

  9. As a person that highly appreciates your efforts to scan and translate PS, I am really sorry that you have to deal with this nonsense. As someone who doesn't really care for the magazine chapters as things get changed up anyway and it's simpler to stick with volume continuity in my opinion, I'm really sorry you have to deal with people hounding you about when the next volume is coming out like you're some magical wizard with telekinetic powers that can figure this shit out. Finally, as an individual with a bias towards gen 2, I'm sorry that you have to deal with people asking you about HGSS magazine chapters when, quite frankly, I don't see why anyone would want to touch that shit with a ten foot pole until the volumes come out since what little we've seen of it is pretty much a godawful rushed ending that's so very QUALITY and is just going to be replaced anyway.

    I'm rather content to sit in my happy little corner of the internet and be patient and grateful as things come in and commend you for scanning this shit. Seriously, thank you.

  10. I will deal with those idiots... my way... hehehehehe...

  11. I'll make it short
    sorry in behalf of the people who pushes you and have no consideration
    sorry in behalf of the people who doesn't even botter to contribute
    and...
    thank you for all your efforts and hard work

  12. I'm so sorry that you have to deal with that shit anon. Just know that for the one person sending you shit mail, there's like a hundred others that are enjoying your work and appreciating everything you've done for the Pokemon fandom.

    And the people talking about HGSS are right, there are currently translations up for whatever HGSS chapters that have been translated into Chinese already. Some of them are a little shaky, but some /tr/ainer said they'd be re-scanlating them.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The first ones are shaky because at first I relied on one of the translators, who is Chinese. Later, his translations turned out to be poor, but not out of context. Anyways, I wanted to work together with this /tr/ainer, but he/she finds him/herself too perfect to have anyone's collaboration. The mistakes are there to prove it wrong.

    I did my part for PokéSpe with the HGSS chapters in Chinese, like /a/non, JB2448 and Michaelf1993 are doing theirs. I wish everyone else did something to help instead of just complaining.

    1. Do you intend on redoing the pages that are shaky then?

      Delete
    2. If someone gives me the right translations, I can re-do the type-setting, no problem.

    1. According to Netkun, volume 41 will be out in June.

      Seems kind of odd, with only a month difference. But who's complaining?

    2. Just saw it on 2ch. It's like Shogakukan is starting to stack them together to annoy me. Please, release them consistently.
