Re RELEASE Witchcraft Works Chapter 1

Another Joint Project Courtesy of WCW_TL

WCW_TL  and I decided to do a leisurely re-release of Witchcraft Works Volume 1 using the tank scans. Keep in mind, this is an ENTIRELY NEW AND FRESH TRANSLATION with no cribbing from Animexis releases. Do we want you to delete your animexis releases? No.  

The tank scan offers additional art, some authors notes, and far less terribad magazine quality. WCW_TL's translation is very literal with minimal localizations or dialog alterations. For that reason honorifics were left intact along with the "Engrish".  The fonts are fairly undramatic simple. We mutually decided to leave the bulk of the SFX untranslated and intact, except for certain plot relevant ones.  The only real liberty I took with the script is unlikely to be noticed, much like my subtly inserted SFX near the end of Chapter 09.

 Why did we do this? I... don't know. It seemed a good idea at the time and we are having a good time with it. The tank scans were done very nicely and we both thought the series deserved a bit of extra love. We don't have a release schedule set up for the remaining chapters yet, as it is a relaxing and chill project.

WCW_TL has some ideas that will be tested in the near future to help streamline his translations and allow the interaction between crowd sourced editors/TSers from /a/, or where ever to be fairly seamless and integrated process. This will allow for faster translations, less digging through greenoval,  efficient and informed feedback and therefore: more quality releases for various projects.

So be sure to drop by WCW_TLs blog and say hello and thanks!
