Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE / Re: Love <3 predictions
« on: July 24, 2008, 09:56:26 PM »
Nadeshiko and Mizuki are after Clow? I didn't know that!
Anyway, it's clear that Yuuko has strong feeling towards Clow, and Yuuko really do seem the best fit for Clow, so I bet he got feeling for her too.

Well, not directly. Nadeshiko is with Fujitaka and Mizuki is with Eriol, both being reincarnations of Clow. Although, I'm deeply confused and which woman and man are TsubasaSakura's parents, but if Clow is one of them, than Nadeshiko must be the mother which would mean Clow/Fujitaka are the same and interchangeable to her.

It was pointed out to me last night that a page from Tsubasa v16c124 is missing. c124 zips on the site DDL and XDCC bot have been updated, or you can just get this page and slip it in:


There's a significant difference between this and the Hyuu translation so I think you should make sure you have the page.

News / FORUM + Tsubasa v17c125!
« on: July 23, 2008, 09:01:02 PM »
WE HAVE FORUMS AGAIN! Entirely thanks to SenoWaffle and especially Motoko-chan.

Since Clow Legacy went down, I am hoping this will serve beyond just the forum for BWYS, but for the Tsubasa/HOLiC & CLAMP fandom at large. Outside of LiveJournal there isn't an English-language forum for the community anymore so I hope this will provide a home. Since I think the forum should go beyond BWYS, feel free to post non-BWYS speed trans/scans and discuss latest chapters from Japan.

Annnd of course, the first chapter of volume seventeen, Tsubasa v17c125 is out.

So, the last chapter of volume 16. 17 has much better raws so the quality will be up a level.

I am still looking for editors (test here), Japanese translators, and people who can do simple, quickie trans like sound effects or chapter titles.

In Tsubasa v16c123 we got the name of the editor on the credits page wrong, get the corrected version HERE. Please update your chapters. Some changes have also been made to the credit page, as an alarming number of people who read our release are not aware that we have a site or an IRC channel (Heartbreak!)

Edit: link to credit page was broken before; fixed.

Applications for QC are now closed, the position has been filled. This means if you didn't get a reply from me, you were not the one picked.

As you can see on the project pages, Trinity Blood is officially dropped. X has been upgraded to a priority project, and Waterdroplet's The Legend of Flor will no longer be offered here, but can be found at

I do not yet know what will happen to Kain- as our joint status with Blah Manga (formerly Sushi Bar Manga) is not resolved yet. Despite being a 'priority project' I do not seem to have any staff that want to work on Busou Renkin, so volunteer yourself if you're able to help out.

Yikes! Its been a while and I've forgotten to release. So here's you have it, more Tsubasa.

/msg [BWYS]Kurorin xdcc send #200

This was actually released last night in the IRC channel, but what with Dreamhosts downtime, the site got updated later.

I am still looking for editors (test here), Japanese translators, and people who can do simple, quickie trans like sound effects or chapter titles. The QC position is closed and I am still going through the applications and considering them.

Also, visitors may now access the site from, which  just re-directs to for now.

P.S. Anyone interested in JPN translating/edting Gakuen Alice or Honey & Clover email me also.

I am still looking for editors (test here), Japanese translators, and people who can do simple trans like romanize SFX. I've detailed the QC application in the previous post.

News / Last Call for Quality Checkers
« on: June 26, 2008, 07:01:23 AM »
So you think you're anal. BUT ARE YOU ANAL ENOUGH TO PASS THE TRIAL!?
Does it irritate you whn ppl type liek dis? Or when scanlation groups do QUALITY work like this!?

If so, I'd love for you to help proof BWYS releases for quality. Quality Checking (QC) is something anyone can do- it's the easiest job in the scanlation process. The job entails checking for grammatical and graphical errors in a pre-release chapter. Errors like typos, awkwardly phrased sentences, missing SFX, incorrect punctuation, crookedness, dust and noise, book-bending shadows, insufficient leveling (example of leveling here) incorrect image size, anything wrong with a chapter.

Get the trial here. Eight pages. Email me a list of the errors in a text file.

QCers do not get to choose what chapters from which project they will be given, although they can request not to be given chapters from a project.

If ever there were a page to test your patience to scanlate, it would have to be page 20-21 from Tsuabsa v16 c122. I have seen a lot of double-pages in my time, even edited a chapter consisting of six of them. But this was the worst double-page I've ever seen, up there with page 04-05 from v15 c114 which previously held that title. As an editor I do not fear re-drawing or cloning of there is material to clone from, but this was a worst-case scenario, effing gradients everywhere and barely any repeat patterns.

To get it, drop by the IRC channel and type
/msg [BWYS]Kurorin xdcc send #198

Job offers still stand, read the "Tsubasa v16 c121" post for more info.

P.S. To those who have applied for QC, I will reply as soon as I come up with a test to see just how good at catching mistakes you are. QCers mainly check for grammatical errors, but they also keep an eye out for visual errors like book-bending shadows, excessive dust, or poor edits. A Quality Checker is just that- they check the overall quality of a chapter.

News / [BWYS]Kurorin XDCC BOT
« on: June 16, 2008, 09:41:52 PM »
Thanks to the kindness of Casusby and especially the generosity of SaberRider, Be With You Scans finally has an XDCC bot again! [BWYS]Kurorin has been up for a week now, but finally, all active and complete BWYS releases have been uploaded on it. [BWYS]Kurorin will be an archive bot, and everything we've done can be found on it. There is no further reason to use Lurk for our projects :)

There are a few items that are not on it- we will no longer continue distribution of our Clover or Chobits scans. If you really want them, PM me on IRC and I will consider giving them to individuals, privately. However, for the large part there is no excuse for not buying the licensed English copies which have been out for a very long time. Your local library may even have Chobits; mine does. I know Clover is out of print but it will be released by Dark Horse soon, and the level of quality is anticipated to be at least that of Japanese manga publishing, with new illustrations by CLAMP.

I've marked which Tsubasa chapters are LQ. If you have an HQ release by us that is not on the bot, email it to me. Also missing are the BWYS versions of v01-02 of X 1999. If anyone has them, please email me or send them to me some other how. I'm also looking for DDL hosting for the manga on this site, and I still need more translators, editors (test here), quality/grammar-anal quality-checkers, and SFX translators (romanji is fine).

Be With You Scans has functionally been on hiatus for a long time now, and a lot of people have questioned whether there will still be high quality Tsubasa scanlations from this place. The answer is obviously: yes.

The raw for v16 were not the ideal tankoubon scans, but here is HQ Tsubasa v16 c121. Yes, that is a direct download.

There have been some changes made here- Earth-Dragon is no longer going to be the leader of Be With You Scans- I will be instead. This is because Earthy has a lot of RL obligations, and this will mean more releases from here forward, since I do have the time. Nearly all DDLs on this site do not work, I will change that slowly.

I am also short on staff. Nothing happening here in so long means a lot of staff (particularly translators) assumed we weren't releasing and moved on with their lives.

I need Japanese or Chinese translators for everything other than HOLiC, editors for everything other than HOLiC, and QCers. My email has changed and is now chara.redth at gmail dot com. Experience preferred, not required. You may show me an existing chapter you've edited (must contain double-page(s)), or send me your finished editing test. This is a new test- if you took the old one you can send that to my new email as well. If you are not accepted I will reply only if you ask me to.

If you only have very basic Japanese skills or don't want to commit too much time to scanlating, I need someone to translate minor things like sound effects, chapter titles, and random sentences when I am not sure the existing translation is correct. These are on-the-fly translations and I would expect them done very quickly, from same-day to two days max. Preferably someone who uses IRC, but any other form of communication is fine as long as you are reasonably prompt.

I would LOVE YOU FOREVER if someone could give us a fast, real 24/7 XDCC bot for BWYS releases.
