During the past few months as those coveted English scan of PS/PA have miraculously appeared on this forum I've noticed that there has been a cry for the volumes to be released in Photobucket form. Whether it is because people don't have the bandwidth to download the full volume archives, don't know how to unzip theses files, and/or simply prefer the style of Photobucket all of it points to one thing; people want Photobucket (or something similar to it).

So, over the past two weeks I have taken it upon myself to both round up as many existing existing links out there as possible and post whatever hasn't been uploaded already to Photobucket. I guess it's because I love you all and this manga so much, but anyway here they are at last! But, before you scroll down to glimpse that Photobucket goodness here are some thing to note.

1) Volumes 1-9 are from Nicoleb's original posting; each page is a separate link.

2) Volumes 10-17 and 20-22 are what I have posted to Photobucket. The links for them are for the entire album so once you click onto it all you have to do is use the navigation buttons to move from page to page. IMPORTANT: Out of my initial inexperience using Photobucket, confusing upload options, and me just deciding to go with the craziness albums must be read back to front. This may sound weird at first but all you have to do is hit the back navigation button instead of the next. Trust me, it's easy to get used to.

3) If you have any problems or find a mistake feel free to message me and I promise to fix it.

4) This thread will be updated if and when new volumes are released.

5) Credits:
Nicoleb - Volumes 1-9;
NESSFAN001 - Volumes 10-11;
Happy Mask Man and NightWizard - Volumes 12-14 & 17-18;
Avegaille - Volumes 15, 20, 21 & 22;
Kitori_theTeamAquaSuicune - Volume 16
LadyGalaxy & kazukiPP - Volume 23
Thanks, you guys rock so freakin' hard! If I've missed anyone please tell me so I can give them their due!

Update: No more volumes have been posted in a while so I decided to do some housekeeping. I've made it so that Volumes 1-9 each have their own link to the appropriate post from Nicoleb. This should hopefully make reading them easier.

P.S.- For those of you looking to just read the manga, no need to start threads asking where it is. Look no further than here. For full volume downloads stick to the "PokeSpe Official Release Thread".

omni89
March 18th, 2008, 03:56 PM
UPDATE: Well it appears that I spoke too soon. Thanks to Avegaille we now have Volume 20 available for your viewing pleasure; I've added it to the list of links above! Enjoy!

One other thing I have on my mind: I was thinking of copying the images of volumes 1-9 from Nicoleb and posting them on Photobucket as albums instead of just seperate image links as well as posting ZIP files on Mediafire or Sendspace for those you prefer using your computer's picture viewer instead of CDisplay. Let me know what you think!

March 20th, 2008, 02:57 PM
Thanks for posting volume 20 Omni89 ;D. I can't seem to find it anywhere else so I really enjoyed reading it form you. Thank you!

airconditioning
March 20th, 2008, 03:37 PM
I think the ZIP idea sounds good. The official release thread, for some reason, still doesn't list volumes 12-14 for download, among other volumes. If you need help, I'd be happy to upload a few volumes (or all of them), since I have most of them saved on my HD.

Update: Volume 22 is now up on Photobucket! It contains the conclusion to the Ruby/Saphire arc as well as the first two chapters of FireRed/LeafGreen. Enjoy everyone, especially you MileyAngel *wink*.

P.S. - It's taking some time but eventually I will post ZIPs of volumes 1-9; it is so much easier to read them in Image Viewer.

@airconditioning: Please feel free to upload and post those links, I'm sure there are some folks out there who would appreciate it.

Gladly. What exactly would you like me to upload, though? Just ZIPs of all the pictures in a volume, or in CDisplay format, or something else?

@airconditioning: ZIPs of pictures if you please. I've alreday done 1-6, so that leaves 7-9. Let me know if I've missed any and what you would like to scan.

Photobucket is one of the best,less tiring ways to read this manga once you get used. I used to read on another site,not sure if I can actually mention,but once I discovered this place,wow. And I'm loving it. Moar photobucket,if you please.

Like Sharpay would say,

More Ice. <3 Because Green+Blue+Gold+Silver is heating this party up! (What,my pokemon are baking cookiez D: and my gardevoir is loving it just like macdonaldz,wtf , i hate it)

Your scandalously outrageous (And sorry for it if it bothers so much),

DOUBLE UPDATE!!!!!!!: Yep, it's twice the love this time around!

1) Volume 17 is up on Photobucket; the usual terms apply (see above).

2) airconditioning and I have uploaded Volumes 1-9 in .ZIP archive form. You can download them here: http://pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=3471880&postcount=87


@airconditioning: What else were you thinking of posting? Volumes 1-9 were all we needed I thought.

[This is kind of embarrassing for me to admit, but I initially misspelled "Photobucket" in the thread title and didn't realize it until last night. I can't fix it myself, so is there a moderator or admin whocan? It would increase my self-esteem and make people who read the title for the first time not think that I lack the spelling skills of a 2nd grader. Thanks!]

@airconditioning: What else were you thinking of posting? Volumes 1-9 were all we needed I thought.

I figured you wanted me to upload all of the volumes that have been uploaded so far. But if all you need is 1-9, then no problem, I guess.

Yeah just 1-9 for now as they were the only ones not in .ZIP format. Although eventually we may have to re-upload as the the forum gets busier, people have trouble with file hosters, and links die, for now I think we're cool.

UPDATE: Volume 18 is up! Enjoy!

@Mileyangel: As soon as LadyGalaxy has posted Volume 23 in its entirety in her thread I will post it on Photobucket.

@airconditioning: Are you still around? I'm working on something big and could probably use your help if your not busy. You'll see what I mean.

Exactly. Since it's really difficult to find scanslations of this, I, too, had to resort to reading them on serebii. Ahaha. I'm glad I no longer have to do that. Thank you for putting these up, Omni. :D

There are new link bans? -goes to check rules-

Also, volumes 1-9 that nicoleb posted were stickied, and they seem to be gone. I thought stickies...stuck...ya know?

Things are getting weird on the scan subject.

Ack!

Well... First, I want to thank you so much for putting these up. I've always loved the Poke' Special manga, I have the first three volumes on my shelf here! Unfortunately, it took me an arm and a leg just to get the third! So I thank you, I've been able to catch up with the series with this. ^^ It made me really happy, and my mom can tell you, it's all I've been talking about for days!

I don't know anything about the new rules and bans and such, (I'm really bad about that. Ha! I just seem to float around the forum and stick to whatever interests me,) but, thank you! I'm kind of disappointed, because I want to hold off on reading Volume 20 until you get 19 up, to be honest, but, with the new rules, I'm not sure how possible it is for you.

-ahem- Anyway, sorry for the long post. Just wanted to express my gratitude, and I hope you keep doing this! <3
