Hey there, Norawgami readers! Sick of long waits between chapters? Ever wanted to help out and become an important member of the scanlation group? Well, now’s your chance! ☆
Sadly, our main redrawer had to leave the team recently, so we’re looking for someone to fill her position. As you may be aware by now, Noragami is a manga with a lot of sound effects and dialogue overlaid on the artwork –so much, in fact, that our two remaining cleaners are getting overwhelmed. If you recall, we’ve had to start using magazine scans, which means the cleaners have their hands full just trying to make the pages look halfway decent. While they were able to handle the redraws themselves back when we were using tankobon scans, it’s simply too much work to split between two people now. So, we’ve decided to reach out to you all for help!
In short, we’re looking for someone to redraw backgrounds and characters where they’re covered by “voiceover” dialogue, sound effects, advertisements, etc., or cut off by the binding in double page spreads.
Ideally, we’d like someone who’s already familiar with the scanlation process, and is comfortable dealing with both lineart and screentones. Experience isn’t absolutely necessary, but it is a plus.
We won’t lie, the workload may get pretty heavy from time to time. The amount of redraws needed varies by chapter, with the Noragami Shuuishuu chapters (which we plan on doing when we’re caught up with the manga) being very redraw-heavy. But since we don’t have strict release deadlines, we’re able to be very flexible with our schedule.
We communicate almost entirely via a group Skype (text) chat, so you’ll have to be willing to put up with us there.
If you think you have what it takes to be a redrawer for Norawgami, please remove all text and sound effects from this page and this page, and join these two pages together. When you’re finished, email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org! Please direct any questions to our ask box or email. We’ll select a new redrawer soon, hopefully!
Good luck and happy redrawing! ☆
