thanks a lot helvetica scans!

If your living in states might work well but the rest of us aren't from the states so getting even a copy is a godsend And that's why this whole scanlating thing even exist in the first place

Scanlation exists to bring untranslated manga to an English audience if there is no official release present. You being able to "afford" it or not is completely your own issue, and isn't the reason why we scanlate. If there is an official release, you should 100% support it. English audiences such as yourself are incredibly blessed, yet spoiled with the amount of free manga you get.

 

They sell it digitally as a kindle product on Amazon and other sites. No shipping, just the regular price that people pay all over the world for a volume of manga, such as Japan. You don't need to buy a kindle reader to read it either.

Great job out there Helvetica, thanks for everything until now <3

You could pay for it...

And that's why this whole scanlating thing even exist in the first place

so, is there anyone here that have looked how far kondasha's official english translation has gone so far? i just happened to see that they have been doing the official translation since july, and it was one volume at a time (digital), so they might catch up if the interval release is like that. except they didn't plan to catch the raw like what crunchyroll does (simulread), then we might just have to wait after one volume (which will take about 4 months per volume)

as for me, even though the price is not cheap, i can always save some from my monthly allowance for my hobbies. so, if you really love to read manga (for this case, grand blue), you can always find a way to support it by buying it officially as now they have licensed it. 

but then again, i still hope and sure that some group will take the risk to continue to scanlate this awesome manga.

and always, thank you helvetica scans for introducing this masterpiece to us! always love your work~

I would like too, really.

But grand blue isn't licenced in France (for now), so my only option actually are scans here, same for a lot of others people.

 

I will import 6/7 tomes at once next year , no other choice.

Well since Amazon in Europe allowed me to buy and read in kindle version (with the kindle app for computer) easily without VPN witchcraft and I am very mad at Viz, right now, i've given it a try.

I'm satisfied.

I don't mind buying the manga, but it will take so long before the official release is caught up to this point.

 

It just means that I will forget about it and when it has inevitably caught up, I will won't even know about it.

Of course, official tranlations picks this up NOW. I wish they picked it up near the beginning so that it wouldn't take so long to catch up.

Scanlators pave the way showing a market exists for a potentially popular series drumming up interest and a rabid fanbase. if it's popular publishers come out of the woodwork and take it. the real concern is incompetent translation quality i.e over localisation, castration of extreme language, poor translation of jokes and leaving out notes to explain cultural differences (just look at what seven seas did to the jokes in D-frag gags). this and the whole dropping a series after a couple of volumes when sales aren't as good as they hoped thing...(looking at you yen press).

 

Since Helvetica have one less major diving title to work on now, maybe they could finish those last 3.5 volumes of Wa ga na wa Umishi?

yeah, easy to said it but hard to do.
do you know how much rate ratio USD in 3rd world country? it's fucking much! 1$ USD in my country could buy you full meals for a day! FOR A FUCKING DAY! yeah ... pathetic right? well, this is why some of us wish, ONLY COULD WISH! a benevolent of internet for giving us something free, if it available, then its good! bless them who shares something for free but if it not? then we can only sit and stare something with droll on our face.
TL;DR? Fuck you richfag! we poorfag only could dreams!



Don't forget that it might not come out on the bookstore in our country

First Kaguya...After that, Hero Academia... And now we just wait for Grand Blue's DMCA?

DO YOU WANT TO TAKE MY SOUL, TOO?! WHY DON'T YOU JUST LICENSE MY SUFFERING?!

 

Now speaking seriously, Helvetica, I'd give you guys a hug if I could. Thanks for your hard, constant work on the series. We deep(blue)ly appreciate it!

Well it's been more than a year since I started to read this manga. Honestly I started it on complete accident, I wasn't even planning on actually reading it when I followed it, but for some reason I did. And man am I glad that I did, this is the only manga that made me laugh every chapter without fail, this is the only manga I couldn't read in class because I wouldn't have been able to hold in my laughter, this is the only manga I really read anymore, and this is the only manga that I can re-read once and then re-read again right after I finish the first time. And it was all thanks to Helvetica Scans that I have been able to enjoy this manga for the past year. Now I know this manga isn't going anywhere, but Helvetica Scans really do deserve a huge thank you for their hardwork and their professional quality scans. I have no doubt in my mind that the official translations won't be as good as your scans and I can guarantee that they won't have your attention to detail. So really I just wanna say that Helvetica Scans deserve everyone's gratitude for the scans they have done so far, and that Grand Blue wont be the same without them. Oh and also support the official translations.

Me, you and them paying for it won't bring it back here or to everyone else who didn't. It will just disappear from the internet just like other titles that got licensed and now buried.

Thanks for Helvetica Scans, it's been a good ride
I still honestly have this childish hope that someone else picks this up for scanlation, but if not, well it's been fun. This is just another dead manga now. Time to move on.

Never thought I'd say this, but best girl is bitch girl. 

So now I have no way to get it officially in my country and there's no scans

Capitalism ho!

>This is a diving manga

 

PFffffff, no.

I really don't get it. Ok, official translate, support business and stuff...but there's still a year before release. Damn, life sucks!

Of course, official tranlations picks this up NOW. I wish they picked it up near the beginning so that it wouldn't take so long to catch up.

the thing is if they pick it up and turns out like a few manga i can think of where they had a great first few chapters then nosedived... they would have lost major investment sooo... ya... though i agree it sucks we gotta wait so long

Ahh not another one ;(

 

It's such a shame but I know it's reasonable. My follow list keeps getting shorter.

 

Thanks to the scantalators! 

Thanks for bringing this manga here, Helvetica scans! You guys did an awesome job.

 

...Now, to wait God knows how many years till I can buy physical volumes in Brasil... OTL

Of course, official tranlations picks this up NOW. I wish they picked it up near the beginning so that it wouldn't take so long to catch up.

Doing the right thing is never easy. Thanks for good run, fellas.
