Freelance Scanlator.

Mainly translates from Chinese to English.  Can read some Japanese, but no where near the proficiency necessary to translate anything.  Uses GIMP to perform cleaning and editing.  I know it’s inferior to Photoshop, but it’s working out fine.

I did a few chapters of Liar Games before Watercrown started on it, and now it’s taken over by another group.  It seems to be a very competitive manga and rightfully so.  I have moved on to scanlating Bartender.  It’s also a niche manga like Liar Games where it’s not the usual fighting, love, or school manga that’s out there.  I’m still trying to catch up, but recently have slowed down my releases since I have other priorities to attend to.

    Hi cityshrimp, I can translate Japanese but since you already are doing chinese translations I guess that can’t help you. Do you want any help with cleaning or typesetting? How far behind are you to the chinese scans? When I introduced my chinese friend to the series he gloated to me about chinese scans being much further in front lol

      I’m still about 20 chapters behind. I’m in no hurry to catch up though. hahaha

    Would like to htank you for the wonderful work on Bartender. I missed reading a manga like that, with so much character in-depth alongside so short chapters as a one-shot. Besides, art is incredibly realistic, thanks to author, and the work you put into verifying info used on the manga is terrific. Please, keep up the awesome work and thanks again for doing it. Hope i can keep on reading scanlations from you.

    On chapter 93, page 4 of Liar Game, I saw a comment about not knowing enough to translate…

    “Oshirifuki” > Oshiri means ass. Fuki means wipe. So, it means wiping your butt.

    Figured you’d want to know!

    Hi! well… i really don’t know how to begin this…

    im a member of a mexican fansub called Nasty Juice no Fansub, and we’re beginning =D

    don’t have a web page yet, is still under construct but we have some works already done: Shinigami Alice and some others that i forgot its name Dx

    and I personally want to do Bartender, cause im a big fan of Sasakura xD

    seriously im a big fan of the manga and the anime, about 3 years ago I was searching for the manga and I found in dats, i was disappointed when the project stopped and now after see my bertender folder in my pc know that you are translated it

    So, well here I am, asking for your permission to use your scans and releasing project to translated to spanish, of course we put in the credit page, the name of the scanlator, the translator, editor and fansub name.

    Of course if you say yes.

    Hi, First of all thank you for scanlating bartender and liar game. Honestly, I did not like the bartender anime, but i found the manga very favourable.

    Do you need help in your scanlation? I can help with the cleaning, proofreading and editing.

    I am currently working with EGScans, but since it is summer holidays, I have a lot of free time.

    It would be great working with you!

    Please don’t stop scanlating Bartender! Your releases have inspired me to pick up cocktail-making as a hobby and in the long run, I might want to even spend more time on it seriously…to learn bartending as a lifestyle..><

    Bartender from America living in Japan now.
    I highly appreciate your scans, Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.
    Last year I found your scans, and they gave me what I was looking for in my craft, something to attain to, and reason to embrace this lifestyle of being a bartender.
    Thank you, please keep up the good work.

    First, thank you for picking up Bartender!!!

    Bartender is one of my favorite series, so I’m really glad you continued it and is doing such a great job! With Bartender’s drama coming out, I ran a search for Bartender stuff and that’s how I discovered you took it up. A year late, but is there anything I may be able help with? (I was part of the original team that did the first few bartender chapters, but the team disassembled and I never got the chance to continue.)

    If you have access to my email (not sure if owner can see it), feel free to email me to discuss it. I have scanned raws and own the books, and can read their contents.

    Either way, thank you for your hard work!!!!!

    HI city shrimp,

    First thanks for taking on bartender. Awesome series. One question I have though is why you had Higashiyama as Saito? I went and took a look at the different pronunciations of the kanji in the name but they never ended up being Saito. Not sure if you already answered this question but if you could tell me why it would be appreciated. It’s something thats been bugging me and well I just want to know.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi City Shrimp,

    I’ve been reading through Bartender for a while now and, I’ve only recently noticed that you appear to be a one person operation. If you are ever in the need of a Proof Reader please feel free to e-mail me. Although I only speak English, I am proficient at both proof reading and editing. I also have working knowledge of Photoshop.

    Keep up the good work!

    Dear CityShrimp,

    many thanks for giving us Bartender; if it was not for your solo act, it is likely that nobody would pick up this lovely manga. I am continually trying to persuade some group to adopt Sommeliere by the same author (a manga about wine, rather than liquor in general, and in my opinion a work superior to the popular Kami no Shizuku).
