Bah, I originally decided to do the first one while I waited for my dad to come home, but then I wound up doing more. Sorry about the inbox spam! And sorry about not claiming them or anything!

By the way, it looks like all of the Japan Comic Omake images are a bit smaller than need be. But not as small as the last one, which definitely needs to be redone, yes.

HRE is no more(do you think I should make the "ah...sorry," bold, too? It looks a bit more bold than the rest of the text its size.)

This needs to be translated, scanlated, and added to that one old, "lost" Christmas(?) event. . .I'm not sure where on Hetarchive it is but here it is on the main comm. THAT'S SEYCHELLES I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW SHE GOT STRIPPED. . . . I wonder if there are other hidden strips for this event(actually I have at least one that isn't there--not a strip, but Hungary in a towel!)
Also, I could rescanlate the strips since they're taken from a video on Niko Niko. But there are also things that weren't translated, so. . . . I could upload a file with all of them in it for someone to handle, actually.
12th-Nov-2012 07:51 pm (UTC)
Oh! That's one of my in progress projects. It's not on hetarchive yet. FH14 sent me raw files of the Hetalia stuff (minus the "intermission" doodles) and I started working on redoing the typesetting, but then I moved on to something else. He suggested adding in the other pages with Noto and Yamato too (which includes the file you found) so they don't just pop up out of no where. That stuff is on Kitayume Indexes.

These were the files he found: http://s1206.beta.photobucket.com/user/FH14/library/Extra%20Hetalia%20Christmas though I wasn't going to include the comic with China and Korea, since that is actually elsewhere on the site.

The two I got typeset are these http://horror-vacui.net/offlink/xmasthing/
I was working on the third one, but got distracted while cleaning it pff, but it's in progress.
I don't think I've seen the Hungary in a towel one, but that's where my progress stands on that Xmas event. Let me know what else you find, if anything.
12th-Nov-2012 08:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, I see! No wonder I couldn't find it! Nonetheless, take your time. '3' And I think you have everything that I do. The Hungary picture was an intermission doodle, actually, so maybe you don't have it? And the one with sleeping Russia you might not have, but I sort of doubt it.
12th-Nov-2012 08:16 pm (UTC)
If it's not on this page, I don't have it: http://hetalia.livejournal.com/1052294.html
Honestly, I'd love to have better quality images of the ones that ARE there.

I just linked you the same page you linked me... whee... I think I better get some food before my memory fails more.

I'm on it! By the time you get food I should have everything uploaded(I have the originals of everything there, though some were already scanlated, as you know, but whatever I'll throw those in too.)

THAT TOOK LONGER THAN IT SHOULD'VE imageshack is foreign to me and throwing me off lol I'll just manually type the filenames, then. . . .</strike>

oh oh oh! This is awesome! Thank you so much! I think I'll try to work on this today! We'll see how far I get.

And yeah, imageshack and tinypic rename files to whatever. Photobucket doesn't, but they're a pain too. =3=;
13th-Nov-2012 02:43 am (UTC)
No problem! ;3; Good luck!

Actually, I think Imageshack leaves the filenames--it's just that they do that annoying thing where they make your direct images into thumbnails that need to be clicked to see the whole thing if you don't do absolutely everything yourself, and they don't have convenient things like the one-click-url-copying that imgur has. And photobucket resizes things and just. Is a bully. -~-
13th-Nov-2012 03:43 am (UTC)
It's not public yet, but I got up everything that I could: http://www.hetarchive.net/scanlations/deleted.php?xmas07

Certain things still need translating, mostly those few extra "intermission" sketches, and whatever is next to Spain's head in that bottom right panel of the first image file. Everything else is good.
13th-Nov-2012 08:00 pm (UTC)
Part of me wants to say what's next to Spain's head is "Feliz Navidad" but That's only going by a few characters, and considering the last one looks like no or me it's definitely wrong.

Unfortunately I'm not skilled in reading tiny text or Himaruya's handwriting. /o\ So currently I'm not helpful(though I can, at least, translate Spain's intermission speech bubble--maybe Russia's, too? I'll let you know.)
13th-Nov-2012 08:23 pm (UTC)
I just showed it to losthitsu, so hopefully she can help too. Himaruya's handwriting is terrible. XD
13th-Nov-2012 09:10 pm (UTC)
I'm going to lie down after this~ Will you come tomorrow?

Something like that for gj3_5


(?) is a kanji in gj4_6 that I didn't even bother with lmfao. I'm not 100% sure the rest is right, but most of it should be okay? Maybe this will help Hitsu a bit, but I'm sure she can handle it if she chooses to.

Also this seems to go between the first image and the second--it appears to be England putting cat ears on America? Well, the image list said it was from that one and that was the only time he didn't have cat ears yet(besides when they disappear spontaneously,) so. . . . (In particular it said "bottom of the Christmas sequel" but my assumption is that it meant "at the bottom of the page" since each image seemed to have been on it's own page for the most part. Also "bottom" could also mean "behind the scenes" so. BUT IT GOES SOMEWHERE IN THERE.)

gj4_1 is
France's text: セクハラ!(Sexual Harassment!)
England: またれよばか!  (Wait, you idiot!)
He uses passive form of imperative wait so maybe it'd be more like "You idiot, wait"?? Idk.

I did a vertical and horizontal version of the HRE Acknowledge Me, so just choose whichever you want, or tell me how you think I could make a better one without messing with the image.

[images]I keep forgetting spoiler cuts don't work in emails.

15th-Nov-2012 06:18 am (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
Working on adding these in now.

I noticed that some of your line spacing is a little large with the smaller font size. I usually try to keep the spacing a number or two larger than the text size. It might help you have a bit more space for more lines for the text. (But if you're spacing it like that on purpose, ignore meee...)

I really hate the word balloons like that HRE one. Just does not work for English at all without doing a bunch of hyphenation. =A= mm, you could probably hyphen it like
I hate having to do that sort of thing, but augh...
15th-Nov-2012 07:33 am (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
Which ones do you mean? Like the first picture? Because I'm not sure what that is--I think it might be the font, to be honest. Because I just changed it to Anime Ace to check and it's much closer. . . . :|a

I understand. orz I also understand why whoever scanlated it originally alerted it so they could cleanly go across--but I'd rather preserve the picture as much as possible than do that.
I hate hyphenating, too. ;A; But it does look a lot cleaner. . . .

15th-Nov-2012 06:51 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
It could have something to do with the font, but there should still be a way to adjust it. What program do you use?

And yeah, that does look better with the hyphen~
15th-Nov-2012 08:24 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
I use GIMP. ;3; I tried to change the baseline in both negative and positive directions and it had the same effect/went in the same direction .-. It just made the spaces bigger instead of moving them closer. I remember messing with it in another font and I think ti worked fine.

16th-Nov-2012 04:00 am (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
I'm not terribly familiar with gimp, but that does sound more like a font issue. How weird!
16th-Nov-2012 03:40 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
By the way, offtopic, but will the Volume 3-5 extra booklets' scanlations be put on Hetarchive? 'o' /realized they weren't there
16th-Nov-2012 04:25 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
Yeah, I was planning on adding them under the volumes section sometime. I think it's on my to-do list. Are there some scanlations for the volume 2 booklet too?
16th-Nov-2012 04:29 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
I. . .didn't even know there was a Volume 2 booklet. .-. I don't have them, at least. ;;
16th-Nov-2012 04:39 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
I have scans of them, though I may scan my own copy for some better quality images, but only once I saw a stray page with translations from that book. So I was wondering if there's a translation floating around somewhere that I haven't seen. Gwah...

The original scans are still here: http://horror-vacui.net/hetarchive/images/?level=album&id=15
16th-Nov-2012 04:52 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
*o* Oooh I haven't seen this! Thank you! And I would appreciate better quality/larger pictures, if only to try and read all the little scattered bits of text. Aaaah prototype witch Hungary!! AND HETALIA FANTASIA OUTFITS AND kghkjhfdjkfh ;3; But gah I haven't seen any translations, myself! ;A; I've seen some of the images but they were in separate places(that is, things like the face charts with relationships on some of them and things) but no actual page translations. . . .
15th-Nov-2012 06:30 am (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
Also, sorry to bother, but I was wondering if you could make the font on the Greece images a touch darker and on "grsy" a little smaller so they fit in the balloons a little more? Thanks.
15th-Nov-2012 07:37 am (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
It's not a bother at all! I was trying to match the original font color but it's really hard even with a color picker. /has the original file in case she needs to edit it anyway

is this better? o: Or still not dark enough? Maybe I should move the middle Greece's bubble over a bit so the T isn't against the bubble. . . .
15th-Nov-2012 07:25 pm (UTC) - Re: the things that weren't comics from diary 7
Yeah, that shade is better.
Oh, I stupidly remembered I had another file for the lightbulb one that had been in the image gallery, I don't know why I never changed it before. =A= I switched that one to that, though it's still a little tight.

I also redid the typesetting on the Austria annexation strip, since it was quick. But I have some other things I need to work on before I do anything else on the site.
4th-Feb-2014 12:34 am (UTC)
I think I'll give typesetting a try and claim the Comic Diary 10 strip with Liech and England. But just a quick question, in the first panel in England's speech bubble, there are two m's hanging around at the end of his sentence. Is that part of the translation or was that an error?
12th-Feb-2014 06:19 am (UTC)
Sorry to reply so late! I'm finally getting caught up after the con. I looked at the original and compared them and I think the "mm" is a typo. I first thought maybe it was a sort of "hmm", but there's nothing of the sort in in the original.
Thank you by the way!

(No wonder I missed this. My email sent the notification into "spam" =A=; )

No worries! I knew you were busy with con stuff!

My first attempt at typesetting! I hope these are okay! I wasn't sure if you wanted those extra images done as well so I went and did them anyway. The first of the three looked fine the way it was so I excluded it.

 photo lien1_zps4938ca09.gif

 photo lien2_zps09834cf2.gif

Just curious, in the third panel there were a fair amount of breaks in translated version that don't be there in the original. Would you like me to fix those? I can't help but feel it looks cramped!
14th-Feb-2014 12:05 am (UTC)
Hmm, just glancing at that third panel it looks like England is saying "That's over... wait, is that my national anthem again?" (He uses "ore no" for "my" instead of "oretachi no" for "our", so you could change that, though it's maybe not necessary?) You can definitely remove the extra "that", I don't know why it's there. If you want to make it more compact, you could probably remove the word "national", because I think "anthem" stands well enough on its own.

The older comics just get cramped with text easily, Himaruya's word balloons were too small;;

I think it looks good for your first try! So I'll try to add them to the site soon! I'll wait to see if you want to fix that third panel.

If you want to add in SFX they're these, but if it's too much, I can add them later.

Panel 1: Large ワー (wa-) cheer/applause/roar/wow - crowd noises basically, so any of that is fine.
Above Liechtenstein's head ペコ (peko) - bow.

Panel 2: I assume that scratching to the top left of handwritten "God" is also ワ.

Panel 3: Another two ワ under the "d" in the handwritten "God".
Under the music notes じゃじゃじゃーん (jajaja-n), which I've never seen used before, but looks like an emphasized version of じゃーん (jaan) "Tadah!". So maybe something like "Ta-dadah!"
Above England's head is おっ (O-), so "Oh!" is just fine.

Panel 4: More ワs

1st extra image: ...yeah, more ワs.
25th-Jun-2014 04:10 am (UTC)
Are you still looking for typesetters, because I can do that?
25th-Jun-2014 04:25 am (UTC)
Sure. I've been too busy to work on much recently, so I'd be happy to have your help.
29th-Jun-2014 07:15 am (UTC)
I am interested in resizing comic diary 7, any certain size it should be?
I will try typesetting something later.
29th-Jun-2014 07:30 pm (UTC)
The comics with China & Shinatty, Finland & Sweden, and Greece and Japan were resized too large when they were scanlated. I'd like them to be the original sizes as they are on Himaruya's page.
6th-Jul-2014 05:41 am (UTC)
I have the pictures resized, how do I post them here?
When I pasted a link it said it was spam, when I tried to post.

Gahh, LJ's being terrible about links recently. It's probably easier if you email them to me. My email is: jammerlea @ gmail .com

Just remove the spaces. Trying to make sure LJ doesn't eat my post either...
9th-Jul-2014 11:52 pm (UTC)
I sent the resized scans.
I will try to work on soon...
