Alright, guys. Here's the deal.

I'm an English major. Currently attending college. I took all advanced placement courses in high school too. One day, I'm going to move my butt to Japan and teach English there.

Your scans of Psyren are physically HURTING ME. I understand you don't have a proof-reader. Please, please, PLEASE, for the love of all that is holy, let me help you. I'm begging you here. I'm even up for proofing other series, if you want.

Here's the setback:
I've never been a proof-reader. I've never been on a scanlation team before, period. So if there's more to proof-reading than just looking over the translations, then you're going to have to teach me. I'm ok with this. In fact, please do teach me. I'm willing to learn and I have time on my hands.


If you've got a proofer by the time you read this, great. I wish you well and I hope they do a fantastic freaking job. But please, stop hurting my soul. It's crying here. Pathetically.

Much love,
ita

Spoiler:
 




Alright! I just edited it right in there, hope you don't mind. If I didn't say anything about it, then it's good in my book. Also, ellipses. Aka the [...]. There should only be 3, max, unless the author intentionally puts more, such as ".........!?". So. Yeah. That's my bid!

It was my only problem with them, really. I think the cleaners did a good job of it, I just really didn't like the English part of it. xD

No, I would hope not. You'd have a lot less people reading them, let me tell you. XD

So, how do you guys do your jobs? I mean, do you email each other a lot or do irc? *is new to this, apologies~*

Oh, cool! I just noticed the staff section. >_> Sorry about that.

Sounds like fun! Can't wait to do the next chapter. Cool

Woo! XD

Yeah, I'd heard about there being no Jump. Japan's celebrating the Festival of Obon, I do believe.

Alright! Away I go!
