Slayers: Super Explosive Demon Story
« on: February 06, 2011, 06 AM »
Where can I find Slayers Super Explosive Demon Story Volumes 1-7 in English?

They seem to be hard to find.
I found Voulmes 1-7 in Japanese but no english. :/

The first one looks better, just because there seems to be a more logical flow of text (the second reads as "if you'll just get out of here, listen lady, I'll give you half the treasure" which makes absolutely no sense), but.. I don't understand the aside in the middle bottom panel. That's totally a question, so why is it written as "I'm finished with you"?

Sorry about my first post I was tired but I was trying to say I became confused because the official translations switched the pages from Right to Left to Left to Right. So that's why the I couldn't figure out how to put that text in the bubble.

What do you mean by "I'm finished with you"? What that a question in the original Japanese Scan? Because in CPM they put that there because Lina was talking to the bandit she was releasing.

Well, CPM didnt have the most faithful or sensical of translations for that series. You're better off retranslating and localizing it yourself.

If you can't read JP, then don't try scanlating it from a preexisting script that's known to have tons of errors. It's off-putting to the people out there who seriously want to translate it to a higher standard.

Well you guys are the professionals why don't you guys do it? Only reason I even bought the Slayers from CPM because I was told to by you guys. Since you didn't want to do it because it's already available for purchase in the US. :/

Whoever said we weren't going to do it? Unless, of course, by "where can I find vols 1-7," you meant, "Are you guys going to be scanlating them," in which case, B- work on your passive-aggressiveness.

Just fyi, but stealing someone else's translation is all sorts of uncool, especially if it was a bad translation to begin with. There's no point to transposing CPM's text onto raws, especially if there's a group out there willing to put legitimate work into real releases.

If you knew so much why didn't you tell me so how is that passive aggressive? I asked a question where can I find the scans in English. My question asked because I was pretty much going to scan the Manga then upload them online since it wasn't likely the were going to be scanlated but I didn't expect the pages to be flipped form right to left to left to right and the color pages to be in Black and White. You don't know what I have planned so I don't understand why you're about to burst a blood vessel. :/


First of of all it's not like I was going to take credit for their work so it wouldn't be stealing. I was just going to translate it online then upload since it's not available online so others can read it and the only reason I'm translating it to the raw scans because 1) The page are switched from Right to Left to Left to Right 2) Because the Color pages that CPM did are in Black and White. Not going to take credit for it yet again , Really where's is it then I'm thankful you did volume 8 but no volumes 1-7.

Oh Who said it.

Quote from:  Melfra
@Darkmoon
The first seven volumes were released stateside by a company called CPM Press, and while they’re now out of print, you can still find them easily on amazon.com and other sites. If demand is great enough (and so far it’s shaping out to be), we’re going back and redoing the first seven volumes after completing this eighth one. And to answer your question more directly, I don’t think any group ever scanlated the first 36 chapters.

That was 3 years ago still no Slayers Super Explosive Demon Story. :/

So please direct to that group that is willing to translate the Slayers Super Explosive Demon Story

Hence the reason I'm uploading them. I am by no means amgoing to take credit for CPM work. I'm just transferring the page on the Raw since they're from Right to Left unlike CPM Version which are Left to Right. And the Color pages are White and Black. So If nobody's willing to translate them why is Rebmatsu having so angry?

I had no clue CPM scans weren't acurate but i guess I should have known since the Anime is either.
