By popular demand, and thanks to the lovely mistressrenet
, who is kindly donating webspace, I'm shortly going to start posting scans of some of my Trigun doujinshi to this LJ. At which point I might just have to rename the damn thing, because my original plan of there being nothing here worth looking at was appallingly short-lived....
I'm not going to be posting scans of entire doujinshi. That's not purely for reasons of time and bandwidth; it sits better with my conscience that way, since the plan is to encourage people to buy more doujinshi, not less. Because of that, I won't be scanlating, as they wouldn't make sense with pages missing. I'll be posting summaries of what's going on instead. (By a strange coincidence, this also reduces the strain on my lousy Japanese since it won't matter so much if I don't get every word).
The plan is that each set of scans will stay up for two or three weeks, then they'll be taken down and replaced with new ones, so anyone who wants to keep the pretty piccies will have to save them. This is all going to be something of an experiment, since neither of us have much clue how much bandwidth this is likely to chew up. If it causes the website problems, the scans will obviously have to stop. To that end, I would initially ask that people not be too
enthusiastic about promoting this stuff. If you want to tell a couple of yaoi-minded friends, feel free. If the entire friends list of yaoi_daily
try to download the first day, it might not work. So we'll play it cautious initially, and if everything goes fine then I'll promote things around myself.
And now I have an excuse to play with polls! Because I already have a few doujinshi lined up that have been specifically requested, but what does everyone want to see in general? Nobody can see who picked what, so no need to feel shy about voting for less smut :-)
Okay, 5's probably a bit optimistic, but it's worth a try, right?
Any thoughts? Stuff I've missed out?
