Gunma Kisaragi Complete Works
« on: October 16, 2010, 10:51:57 PM »
First off, i HAVE Read the wiki, guideline for uploading, DO NOT UPLOAD list, etc.

I've acquired a collection of Gunma Sisaragi's works. It contains about 20 works by that artist.
Some are tank scans, others are lower quality. Some works are censored, others are uncensored, and yet others have been de-censored by various individuals.

This collection includes:
Kimikiss, Yuumi
Love Selection (This is one of the (partially) decensored ones. Would this be considered "better" than the current censored Love Selection on BBT? In other words, is a de/uncensored version superior enough to replace a censored version?)
Mai Favorite
Immoral Girl
Iori
How to create an idol
Ichigo 100%
Hina Project
Giri Giri Sisters
Doki Doki Kousai Checker
Eriko
Beauty Contest Rhapsody After Days
Curiosity Never Stops
Miss Contest Rhapsody
Ojou
Public Commitment Strict Observance
Stellvia, Kokuhaku
Strawberry Panic 1
Strawberry Panic 2
Strawberry Panic 3
Sweet Hearts Lesson 1-3

Here are notes included with the release. (Most of them)

(click to show/hide)


This release was found on a certain website, the admin of which has stated that he permits posting of his releases. However, the way he said it was a little ambiguous and i will verify with him if I can upload it here. Approved

Until then, what do you guys think? Can/should I upload this if permitted? After all, it has user-created content (decensors). Where should I seek information regarding licenses, etc? There is surprisingly little information on certain individual works, such as Hina Project (I checked three sites and got nothing).

This would be my first upload.

I don't think that we want a mega torrent (especially since she's probably not retired yet). You can definitely scratch all doujinshi. The tank are most probably better but I don't know what versions of the respective tanks are on BBT. You or someone else would have to verify them. If the tanks you have are superior please check if the different people/scanlation group are credited.

Okay, so...
  • no mega torrent
  • no doushinji
  • check if if quality of individual works are better than existing torrents if they exist & check if are more recent
  • if pass two checkpoints above, check that works are not licensed by anyone on the DO NOT UPLOAD list
  • make pretty descriptions, credit everyone, etc. and upload
Did I miss anything?  :P

EDIT: also, where should I seek information on licenses? I've tried Wikipedia, ANN, and manga-updates. Nothing on Hina Project (only one i tried so far but that doesn't bode well).

Pretty much the only manga with license concerns is those that ADV handled, and even then the cut-off date is 2007 so earlier than that should be allowed.

Please note Kisaragi Gunma has done several doujinshis, so check carefully with mangaupdates beforehand. (incidentally, mu lists also 20 titles for Kisaragi Gunma, but haven't checked whether those correspond to the titles in your list, mangaupdates is not as complete as AniDB is for animes...)

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=71739

That link from ANN only lists like 4 of that author's works.
What do I do for the rest? For example, Curiosity never stops (Koukishin ga Tomaranai) is not listed in the encyclopedia for either name. When making a template, what then do I put in the ANN link box?  :(

For now, i will focus on uploading Love Selection, Giri Giri sisters, and Mai favorite, ALL of which are already on bbt -_-
I wonder if they're on BBT because of the availability of information about them.
Guys, help me get this awesome hentai on BBT!  8)
Information on mangas one post above please (ANN links, etc).

What am i supposed to do when searches come up empty like this?
http://www.anime-planet.com/manga/all?name=Mai+Favorite
Those sites' search functions suck.

Curiosity never stops
Doki Doki Kousai Checker
Giri Giri sisters already on BabaBT
How to create an idol (Idol no Tsukurikata)
Immoral Girl
Love Selection already on BakaBT
Mai Favorite already on BakaBT
Public Commitment Strict Observance
Miss Contest Rhapsody (Misukon Kyousoukyoku)
Sweet Hearts ongoing, according to mangaupdates, last release 88 days ago

After having a glance, those six bolded should be eligible.
(BakaBT/mangaupdates cross-referenced, doesn't count out some could already be here under slightly different titles though?...)

That's something I wondered though. The current releases are censored.
For example, the Giri Giri sisters on BBT is censored. Mine is not (partially). In my opinion, that makes mine superior. So should I upload it? Lots of people prefer uncensored.

Yes, that would make it an eligible offer, aside from a chance of a swap of the existing one.
Obviously, with translation/image quality etc taken into consideration.

I would give you a hug for the whole thing, but because it doesn't comply (or so it looks judging from the previous posts), just the small part of it would be more than enough, for *ME*.

You can hope for permanent-seed mode on from my side.

I've heard on ANN/AoD/conventions that ADV's manga licenses are all expired and have been for some time. So there should be no licensing concerns in uploading any manga to BBT, since Funimation doesn't do manga. Unless of course that publisher/licensee coalition that went after the reader sites starts going after torrent trackers as well...


Got any old fansubs on HDD/DVD/CD? Please take a look at this thread.

None of the works here were on the licensed-by-ADV list anyways.

A note to all concerned:
I'm pretty busy with school during the week, and I can only work on this weekends. Also, there was a power outage here - the underground wires for my neighborhood short-circuited and melted to the conduit, so they have to dig it up and pull out the melted wire in chunks (omg loud machines :-X) - so that set me back a bit.
I'll get these offered one at a time as I take them. Any tips would be appreciated, etc.

Also, _Jitsu_, if you want this so badly I can just send you the d/l link  :D

Update:
I'll never get around to this. I'm busy with my bio and chem at school, and my weekends are spent studying.

Thus, I will post the download link here as an invitation for someone else to upload it themselves. You can use this topic to keep the rest of us up to date, I suppose. Of course, no one is stopping you from downloading it for your own... purposes ;)

Here's the link:

Hm, that site... Offers with packages from that site will only be accepted when the original filenames are untraceable. That site is known for renaming and repackaging.

I could post filename samples from each of the works, if you'd like.
