Well, it's been a while, guys. And I'm sure you think that I am dead, but no, I am still alive. Somehow I have regrouped Whatever, and we are back until Loki knows when. Our current project list is Vampire Library, No Guns Life, Kasane(joint, we will start once the other group finish the chapters they're working on).

We are still looking for more members in all positions. As usual, to maintain our quality we just simply always need more people to lessen our workload. Especially with Vampire Library, look at the amount of SFXs and redraws we made, be grateful and apply! As usual you can apply through the comment system and leave us your email address (no worries, all comments are moderated, nobody is going to see your email-address) To be more specific, these are what we are looking for currently:

  • Korean proofreader for Vampire Library
  • English proofreaders for Vampire Library and Kasane
  • Typesetters, Cleaners (our cleaners must redraw up to certain extent)
  • Quality checkers for all steps (contact us for more details)

 

Now that I have said what I wanted to say, here, leech to your heart's content.

Note: In case you don't know, this is a manhwa, so it's read from left to right.

Note 2: Alright, it seems I need to insert more details about these open positions here. First I want you to know there is no limit to cleaner position currently. So apply and see if you can survive Whatever's hell! Please also check out Whatever workflow below for better understanding of how we do our job.

  • About English proofreading position, it's not so much about checking grammar most of the time, because all our translators are either professional or very good. So instead it's mostly about the flow of the language, the linguistic aspects of how dialogues should match the character persona etc.
  • About the original language (Korean/Japanese) proofreading position: you will be providing a second thought over the context and the appropriate colloquial expressions in term of the original nuance and so on.
  • Cleaner: as you can see from the quality of our releases, we need you to be able to follow the art style and redraw when you have to. Currently we don't offer teaching, we don't accept people who can't use PS. If you really want to join regardless you can try your luck with our ex-dojo master.
  • Typesetter: for Vampire Library and possibly our other projects, we "draw in" SFXs and floating text, we don't "type" them. I have had so many people asking me what are those fonts in our releases, they are not fonts, they are our drawing. If you can't manage something like that you may try applying for a dialogue typesetter position.
  • Translator: we need you to be fluent and confident in your understanding of the language (Korean/Japanese)
  • Quality-checker: you may work as a qcer for any of the stage of our scanlation but you must know what you are doing. Please look at the flow chart below for better understanding
  • There will be an initiation stage where we test you and such. You will have to pass it to join us permanently. Join at your own risk. Usually by the end of the initiation period most ppl go crazy and somehow turn M. Good luck, we are waiting for you.
  • Please enter your e-mail address in the comment or send your e-mail to whatever-project at gmail

Hello! I just want to say thanks for picking up Vampire Library and ask permission to continue re-translating Vampire Library into portuguese. Actually we did the first chapter once Royal hearts gave us permission, I didnt find a e-mail to talk about this, so I'm asking here >< Its portuguese and the site is yaoitoshokan.com

Thank you!

Yay, Vampire Library! I saw chapter 3 on Batoto just now and even before reading it had to come and praise you for picking it up after Royal Hearts had to drop it.

The art IS beautiful, so the cleaning must be all the more painful. I'm sorry but all I can do right now is praise you, soooo... Here's extra praise! Yay!
