Change in Plans

The magazine raw scanner (as in a person who scans magazines) I've been depending on for the past 8 months or so has become more and more unreliable in the last month or two, so I need to make some changes.
  • Pokemon Special B/W: I took a gamble when I decided to rely on him to provide the magazine raws, and I lost.  My tentative plan is to subscribe to either Pokemon Fan or CoroCoro Ichiban! (or both? I forgot how much they charge for bimonthlies) with the remaining balance ($70.80) and some of my own money (probably also around $70) for a year.
  • Nanika Mochigatte masu ka: This means that I've lost my magazine raw source, though I have no plans of dropping it.
  • Inverted Patema: Another Side: Unfortunately, this one's not uploaded to Share, so I'll have to drop this.  Regardless of the raw situation, my interest in the manga is dissipating, so I don't think I'll be interested in scanning the volume by the time it comes out.
  • Magazine Scanning: I might get scans for one more issue of Young Ace, MTK Forward and Big Gangan, but I won't upload anymore scans past that. You can look to Share for raws on these series: Hokkenshitsu, Blood Lad, Inari, Ren'ai Shimasen ka, NGE, F/Z, ISUCA, Yuki Nagato-chan's Disappearance, Daisuki desu!! Mahou Tenshi Cosmos, MPD Psycho, JA, Worldgaze Clips, Ookami Kodomo, 7o3x, Boku Dake no Inai Machi, and the adaptation of the new Cyborg 009 movie.
Other series are not significantly affected.

  1. Can you contact me with your scanner for Young Ace? I would also like the information on how much he/she charges for the service.

    1. He still hasn't scanned Young Ace 2012-08 and 2012-09, so I don't recommend it.

    1. It'll be through a local store. $140 is what they charged me for my Young Ace subscription. When I first wrote this post, I forgot that Pokemon Fan and Corocoro Ichiban are both bimonthlies, so I might be able to do subscribe to both if I'm lucky.

  3. If it's not too much trouble, could you give a rough guess on how long it might take to upload this final set of Big Gangan raws, or the rough chances you'll even get them at all?

    Thanks, I'd appreciate it.

  4. Are there any good English-language guides to downloading stuff from Share? The few Googled links on how to use it I've found are all dead or have FBI warnings on them :|
