Red Hawk Scanlations finished up chapter 4 and posted it a few hours ago. Head over to their post for links or see our page below.
Also, there will be no Silver Spoon next week due to the Golden Week holiday. I’m sure it sucks being outside of Japan and having a normal work week with no manga pick-me-up, but I’m going to enjoy not having to work all next week! I’ll be back in two weeks with chapter 5! ^_^
Everything Silver Spoon
As stated in a previous post, the two of here at Mangawari received an email from one of the admins over at Red Hawk Scanlations last weekend that stated their interest in doing this series. They asked if we’d like to help out and we decided to join the team. Now, we are pleased to announce that chapter 3 has been released in much higher quality then we were able to bring you before. The Red Hawk team of cleaners is absolutely amazing, as are the typesetters. We thank them for letting us remain a part of this project and are pleased to be working with a group with such a great atmosphere.
To make it even better, they also released our first two chapters with their beautiful cleaning job! Even if you already have our versions of the first two chapters, we suggest you replace them with the Red Hawk versions. Find all your links for chapters 1-3 or even read them online below.
Everything Silver Spoon
Greetings from us here at Mangawari!
We have some news about the future of “Silver Spoon” that we need to share. Continue reading
CAUTION: If you don’t want to know anything about the meaning behind the title of this manga, don’t read ahead.
A few days ago at work, I asked a coworker of mine if the phrase “Gin no Saji” had any special meaning that he knew of. This started an interesting dialog that eventually led to him looking up some information for me (I didn’t actually know he was going to do this). I was surprised when he handed me this long printed page of info that was pretty interesting, so I decided to do some research and share it with everybody.
Here is what my searching has come up with:
We’re back with the second chapter of Arakawa Hiromu’s new manga, Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji). Special thanks to Qashqai for providing the cleaned pages this week!! Enjoy the chapter!
For the Love of Anime Manga,
I’m sure there are a few people out there wondering when you’re going to be able to get your hands on chapter 2, so here’s a quick progress update:
Cleaning: DONE (Thank you, Qashqai!)
Release time: Late Friday night (Pacific Standard Time)
Life gets in the way of everything… So annoying.
Hello again, everybody! This is the first chapter of Arakawa Hiromu’s new manga, Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji). We’re all suffering from Full Metal Alchemist withdrawal, so we’ll take anything with vaguely similar character designs!
We pretty much decided to do this on a random whim when it came out on the same day we finished up the batch torrent for Bakuman. It looks alright because we were working with a decent raw, but I know about as much about cleaning as Paul Ryan knows about the U.S. budget, so I suppose we’ll dub it “medium quality.”
Also, I’ve been sicker than a dog’s breakfast, Musou_Mitai did pretty much all the work this time around. Credit where credit is due!
For the Love of Anime Manga,
This patch is for fixing the giant fuckup MusouMitai made with the batch torrent — apparently he muxed episode 18 with the wrong .ass file. To clarify, you only need this if you have the version of episode 18 from the batch torrent released a couple days ago.
To apply the xdelta patch, you will need this. Unzip the contents and make sure ‘xdelta.exe’, ‘xdeltaUI.exe’ and episode 18v2 from the batch torrent are in the same folder. Run ‘xdeltaUI.exe’ and you will see a dialog box. Select the patch, the source file, and enter a name for the output file and click ‘Patch’. Don’t forget to type ‘.mkv’ at the end! That should do it.
Sorry for the trouble. MusouMitai can be an idiot sometimes…
For the Fixing of Anime,
It’s been a great ride! We would both like to thank everybody for all the support that we’ve received these last few months. Both of us were completely inexperienced fansubbers when we first started this series, but thanks to all the feedback and suggestions, I think we’ve improved quite a bit. There have been times when I got frustrated and thought about quitting, but I remember why I keep going whenever I read all the positive comments we get from you guys.
We have not yet decided when (or if) we will come back to the fansubbing scene. Translating and timing this series has been a huge drain on my personal free time, causing stress for both me and my editor (he has to listen to me complain all the time). Like my editor mentioned before, if we do decide to pick something up in the future, we will most likely recruit some people to take some of the workload off of the two of us.
In the meantime, know that we will both be here, silently judging all you other groups. If we feel that our greatness is needed because you aren’t doing a series proper justice, we may just step in.
Hey all you Bakuman fans! Our batch file is finally available!
Here are some of the changes I made:
-All episodes now use the most recent font size/position.
-Chapters added for all episodes.
-Translations fixed and/or tweaked in many places
-Azuki’s anime OP/ED songs were released in the real world, so the translations have been fixed.
-Hard subs in earlier releases were redone as soft subs.
Some of you asked if were we going to go back and do episodes 13 and 14 to ‘fill the gap,’ but I just don’t have the time/motivation to do translations and timing for episodes that are so far in the past. I apologize to all the anal retentive people out there (my editor can tell you that I’m one of the worst!) who like to have complete series all under one fansub group. [SubDesu] and [TMD_A-Destiny] both have solid versions, so if you need to fill the gap, grab one of those.
Keep an eye on the blog for future news. Thanks for making the last 3 months so great!
For the love of anime,
