Why would we need money?



It costs money to run this group.  We break expenses into two categories:
Website/hosting/technical expenses and RAW/translation/conversion expenses


———-Website/Hosting/Technical Expenses———-


What we have purchased so far:

  • So far Radioactivekitty (the admin) has paid for the initial cost of the website ($50, see in the donations list below) as well as 3 years of hosting ($380, see below).  Since the website is paid for for 3 years it will be up to him whether or not any donations go to compensate him for this tremendous expense.
  • Radioactivekitty has also paid out about $17 for bot hosting on Heroku for the group’s bot, the Kittybot, to operate on our IRC channel.  This is a minor expense, however, it is monthly, and he is looking into some way to host it for free or at a lesser cost.

———-RAW/Translation/Conversion Expenses———-


  • January
    • $50 for Black Dog
    • $60 for some more Black Dog
  • March
    • $17 for one Kochikame VHS tape from Japan

We want to purchase about $230 for VHS conversion equipment to dramatically
improve the quality of the Kochikame conversion to a digital format.  These items are:

  • A StarTech.com USB 3.0 Video Capture Device, link here
  • A Video Scaling Device, link here

(We’ll only put money into the Kochikame fund if you ask us to.)

    Hi! I was wondering if you could translate Golgo 13 little by little. I will help with the raws as much as I can and will donate money as well. Will you take up this task?

      Hi Prashant Jain, I checked the status of Golgo 13, and it was licensed by Viz. You can check the Wikipedia article for the series, which says “In 2006, Golgo 13 was brought back by Viz as part of their Viz Signature collection. A total of thirteen volumes were published, with the thirteenth volume being published on February 19, 2008.” Unfortunately, we can’t scanlate series which have been licensed for publication in English :/
