"...all I got was a bunch of porn."

Kabuto, you say that as if it were a bad thing!

*Assumes disciplinarian father pose and stern professorial lecturing-style voice.* And to Tsubomi-san: As a matter of keeping good grammar and spelling habits and eliminating the possibility of careless mistakes while proofreading a translation, I STRONGLY encourage ALL proofreading applicants to proof ALL of their posts online and in all messages as a matter of continual practice!!!

(Please keep in mind the pit of hungry zombies and the genitalia noose before you click on the "submit" button.)
Thank you for your attention. We now return you to your regularly scheduled manga, already in progress.

Good afternoon.
My name is Kurosenai. I'm currently working with a few other scanlation groups (which I won't name unless specifically requested). Anyway, I am a fan of some of the work you guys do, so I'd like to help out. Given that I am working with two or three other groups, I won't be able to do too many different series' releases. However, if given the choice, I'd like to help you with Satsui no Senki, as I'm smitten with it (it somewhat reminds me of Tokyo Ravens' art style, but I'm not sure why...). Oh, I'm getting ahead of myself... My skills relate to the fields of proofreading and typesetting, both of which I do on a normal basis. As mentioned, I can't do too much, since I work with other groups. But, I am willing to make an exception for Satsui no Senki, if you would be so inclined...
Thank you for your patience, as I know this has been a pretty long message.
Thank you in advance for considering me, and good luck.
I await your response with bated breath.

Thank you very much, Kurosenai, for your interest.

I've just finished translating a chapter of Satsui no Senki, but I'm sad to say that we have a proofreader for it. Actually, all our proofreading positions are filled, as far as I can remember. (Some people do more than one series, but as they are coping and delivering quickly, I don't feel inclined to distribute their work to other people.)

We are also good on typesetters right now, so I'm afraid we wouldn't have work for you right now. We are terribly understaffed in cleaners and redrawers, including a badly needed redrawer for Satsui, though.

Good afternoon.
No problem. It's actually good that you have enough staff for those positions. Unfortunately, I can't really redraw. However, I will pass along the message to set redrawers I know and see if they're interested. If you do ever need a proofreader or typesetter, though, you know where to find me. Thank you for considering me.

My work is done. Only thing left to do is send the test to PervySage and cross my fingers. I just hope that i'm selected.

While doing the test, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos suddenly appeared and i was laughing hilariously. Extraterrestrials. Seriously....
