I have three volumes of this magazine starting with vol 6. Plus one more coming. I was considering de-binding these and posting them here but figured I'd ask first before I do. This is a comic magazine btw, and also has short novel type stories. Does anyone here translate comics? It would be nice to see translated to understand the stories better.
I got a few of the Ichigo Red too. I need to look thru them to see if they have any illustration worth scanning.

Please do I would love to see them
lots of BW pictures. I was thinking of scanning the whole thing but would text only scans be applicable or be deleted? Maybe I should leave the stories out and just do the manga's?
How many pages does it have?
332pgs including all ads and covers. Should probably leave out the ads and the text only stories. Plus there's three poster pages.

How are those magazines? I have one on order just to see what it's like. Any good or are they a waste of money?
That is a lot of pages to scan. Are you sure you are going to be able to do it?

Can you scan a couple of pages and upload so we can get an idea of the contents and scan quality?

I cannot read Japanese once so ever, cause my studies never got past 20 Katakana and about 5 kanjis only. But I can speak it ^^ (somewhat).

The mags, are really big and bulky, a bit larger than American Manga size, and it's about 1 1/2 inches thick. I only got it case I wanted the Eiji Komatsu Calender for the illustration.

I got 2 of them, since I couldn't find the exact one. But just in case you're wondering, it's the volume 7, 2008 edition.

- Ok just looked thru the volume 7, it has a total of like 11 or so colored illustrations, including the cover, the inside cover and the back and back cover.

Really thing worth scanning. (gonna look at the other one now)
Here's the exact measurment

28x16x3 (cm)

---To answer your question.

If you like suggestive scenes with lots of nudie pics, then it should be good for you. If not, stay away from these Ichigo Reds.
Sure, I'll start with the first issue I have. I'll do a little at a time so I don't kill my computer again so it will take some time. Would it be better to upload the size I usually upload at or smaller?
Thanks for the info aoie emesai ... I'm sure now I'll enjoy the magazine :)
Scanning the pictures I chopped out of the mag now.

(stupid pages are so thin... Hope I can prevent some bleed thru)
Bleed-through is a sod to prevent on B/W pages. Especially thin pages.
Kaaayyyy, after 6 months I finally have the first 66 pages scanned. 150dpi tho ... not 600. It was difficult to get time and privacy and it's still hard now. I'm uploading the zip file now to mediafire and I'll post a link in the forums for whoever wants to have a look. And it's actually vol 40 not vol 6. I'm not very observant apparently ... and the B&W scans are not the best either.
Scanning isn't so hard, it's processing them ^^

I've been told there is a different way for doing B&W. I've never tried very hard to figure out what they were talking about. I just scan @16bit greyscale and I'm done.

I didn't try 16bit grayscale on my B&W. I just did my normal 24bit. God... it's sometimes hard to clean them up >.<
