Why do we need donations?
Here’s a breakdown of the expenses for running Outerworld Scans.
- Server costs/Hosting server cost:
- Buying raws /Shipping from Yesasia and CD/Japan:
express US$11.99 /standard US$3.99 Although manga raws are still available online, most of them are in really bad shape and can’t be used for translating and, for sure, not even editing. (An example of this is Nise no Chigiri. Excellent manga, but the raws found online have nasty watermarks that can be tough to clean. Which is one of the reason why it’s taking us so long to release… along with other things like lack of members. Please Join!) Anyway, I am not sure how often raw sites update their scans. Its good to use the raw sites, but not every manga that we want to do is going to be found online. Furthermore, as the scanlation war is in progress, more and more raw providing sites are shutting down. That is the reason we are asking for donation to buy manga, so we can scan them and provide you with high quality releases.
In addition, whether or not you choose to donate, we appreciate your support for our group and we hope that we can continue to provide you with the highest quality releases possible!
