Anonymous asked: (Same anon here! Sorry for being annoying...) I'm from Spain myself so imho Sechu would be a better choice since it's a nickname for José, an actual spanish name. What I was trying to say with "José > Josechu > Sechu" is just how the name evolves into that. Also, being Chica a nickname I don't see why Sechu wouldn't be one as well. I guess I didn't explain myself good enough earlier, sorry about that...!
We’re actually happy to hear from people in Spain, since we didn’t know anyone we could ask when we first started and so went with our best option at the time.
We’ll change it for future releases and will probably get around to updating the previous chapters later.
Anonymous asked: Hi, I have a question regarding Seche's name. In Japanese you can clearly read Sechu, and well, as far as I know, in Spain Sechu is a name (possibly Jose > Josechu > Sechu) while Seche isn't. Is there a reason for you to go with that spelling or that's just a mistake? Anyway, thanks for translating Golondrina!
We went with Seche after a long search through various Spanish name dictionaries looking for Sechu (no results) and Japanese language searches that turned up absolutely nothing even remotely Spanish relating to the セチュ, other than Isla DeSecheo which is spelled de-se-chu-o (デセチュオ) in katakana.
Josechu gets us results on google now that you’ve pointed it out, but no combination of katakana that would sound out Josechu (ホセチュ or if you really want to stretch it, ジョセチュ) turns up any results.
TL;DR: It was the only remotely Latin sounding thing we could find that fit the kana and we ran with it. Katakana names is hard.
Anonymous asked: Hello, I love Satanister and was wondering if you are still scanning it, since it´s been a while since the latest chapter was released. I´m not asking as one of those "hurry up give us moaar" fans but more "how is the progression going with this?" fan. Thank you very much for your hard work so far! It is much appreciated.
Woah your ask sent like 5 times.
And yeah, we’re just busy and when we switched to raws for the third or whatever volume we’re on they didn’t have their page spreads joined already, so we’re also just totally lazy too.
Golondrina takes on average about an hour for the each of us to do our respective duties on due to minimalistic text and practically nothing in the way of joins or redraws. Satanister is a lot more intensive.
We love Satanister too.
Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm a big fan of Golondrina and wanted to thank you for scanlating it. I'm also a mod (KidCongo) over at Batoto, an online reader, and I wanted to ask if we can host your releases? At the moment they're not allowed, but no one can recall exactly why. Thanks, KC.
Yes, that’s fine. We disallowed it at first because we were still under the impression that the people uploading the manga were gaining ad revenue from it.
We had that happen to us in another scan group we worked for, where someone not related to the group uploaded the our work to collect the revenue, so we’d been more than a little prejudiced against Batoto until fairly recently, when we found out that it’s now completely non-profit.
Golondrina Chapter 10
I guess it runs in the family.
Golondrina Chapter 9
Chica is 12 and what is this
Would it be bad to ask for an emergency typesetter?
It would make my job be done faster, and (hopefully) faster releases (tho that depends on the typesetter). Just need someone with Photoshop skills and able to manipulate text on it. Srsly D: It’s time consuming but easy
Anyone who’s ever wanted to help us out should go help these dudes instead. Viva la 1990s overly melodramatic shoujo!
(FTR the project they need help with is A Cruel God Reigns and they only have 2 volumes left to go with it.)
- Chapter 7 of Golondrina’s link is fixed on the projects page (it always worked on the main post though)
- New chapter tonight or tomorrow or something, depending on when that new episode of Hannibal comes out tonight.
- Con crunch is coming up again as soon as my fabric gets in so probably only 2 more chapters of Golondrina until July.
- Satanister after that (it’s half cleaned)
I lied, busier than I thought and fresh out of fucks to give.
Anonymous asked: Are you guys looking for proofreaders? (If you are, please contact me at: coolmasterkelsey@yahoo,com)
Nope, but thanks for your offer! There are only two of us and we proof each other’s mistakes and [usually] check multiple times before release. We’d prefer to keep our operation as small as possible.
silly-grl asked: Thank you so much for the scanlations! It makes me really happy to be able to read est em's works ;w;;;;
You’re welcome and we’re glad you enjoy our work! We are currently kind of swamped, otherwise we would have more Golondrina out.
