Up until now all my posts have been public and open with no restrictions or rules.

Just to say that I added you to my f-list because I don't want to miss any of your great scans, ok? ^__^

Hi - thanks. No problems.

You're Amazing!

Just wanna thank you for sharing all of these mags scraps and calendar scans. Your blog has made me happy for the fact that you made these photos available for download. I'm in Manila and I have no way of getting hard copies of those. HONTOU NI, ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU! ^^ Hope you won't mind if I'll share your blog/link to others. Don't worry, your work will be credited and will be much appreciated.

I'm Merry btw. I don't have an lj account however you can check my profile here > meriness.tumblr.com
Thanks much again!

Love lots,

Hi and thanks for your comment. Much of the time these magazines are the only NEWS activity there is from month to month, so I'm definitely happy for my scans to be shared. I just don't appreciate it when people seek credit for themselves with my work.

And this post was really just to make a public statement about that. I figured that if I wanted people to know what I thought, then I needed to tell them.

Other than that, I see my scans all over NEWS fandom and that's not a bad thing either - the more people who may see the gorgeous NEWS boys and want to know more about them, the better.

Thanks again.

Thanks very much for your work.
I have found a lot of interesting in your journal.

Thank you for your comment and sorry for taking so long to reply. Cheers.

Inala, I just wanted to say thanks for your effort and patience toward this fandom. I'm not in the NEWS fandom as much as I used to be, but it's people like you that keep me in it. I've tried editing nasty fold marks in scans before (keyword being tried, lol), and saw that it's not really the most pleasant task in the world...so it really sucks to see nice people like you being uncredited for your tedious work.

Nevertheless, thank you for everything up to now, and I hope less trouble will be caused for you in the future :)
May. 16th, 2011 10:28 am (UTC)
Thank you for your comment ... and forgive me for taking so long to respond. It's always great to hear from people who understand just what does go into cleaning up scans. But I do know one thing - and that's that hardly anyone else does do that sort of thing, so I know my work when I see it.

It is nice to see the clean version though, and then wish that the actual poster didn't have those nasty folds in it either.

thanks again

Very happy I found your site. Will note it and return for more info.

Re: new member
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment - and sorry for being so tardy in getting back to you, but time seems to get away sometimes. Please feel free to add me - I don't always post everything to wider communities, so it's not a bad idea. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a comment.
Apr. 11th, 2011 02:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
Hey! Really thank you so much for your scans!

I remember a year or so back, I wanted to know more about NEWS but couldn't find anything, because y'know, it's such a vague term and because of that I "went into" the KAT-TUN fandom and there came all the drama with KAT-TUN's fandom due to Jin leaving.

Enough of that, my friend then showed me this video of NEWS singing Forever (unplugged), then I really decided to take the step up, find out everything about NEWS and eventually landed up at your LJ ;) Yes again, thank you very much and you're really kind for not friends locking it.

Idk what more to say but I'm really impressed and touched that I found your LJ! w

Re: Thank you!
Hell and thank you for your comment - and sorry for being so tardy in responding. I'm very glad to hear that you found your way here and to NEWS - our lovely boys that we miss everyday. But it is important to me that my scans aren't locked away - and there is nothing on my lj that is locked for friends only.

But I do hope that in these lean time for NEWS fans, being able to see the regular mags is one thing that we do have, and it's definitely great for me to hear that people appreciate my efforts. I certainly want as many people as possible to discover them.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

I totally respect what you're saying. I give credit to the source of where I get my photos from.

When I found your blog, I felt very surprise, because you didn't lock the files and all the files are in high quality. I really appreciate u to scan these magazines and photos because I couldn't always buy their magazines; however, I can read it and understand NEWS more because of you. I don't know what I can do for you, but at least I can follow ur rules and leave comments. Thank you =) LOVE NEWS
May. 16th, 2011 11:15 am (UTC)
Hello and thank you for your comment. I know a lot of things are locked away and I really don't understand why people don't want to share their love of NEWS. The more fans they have the better for all of us. And I try to do the best scans I can because they are such lovely pictures to look at and for a lot of the time it's the only thing we get to see of NEWS.

Thank again for taking time to leave a message.
May. 25th, 2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
I feel really sorry for you. Someone was stealing your work back then...? Simply horrible. People who steal the hard work of others and credit it as their own have to be lj-jailed!! >:C
There are so many people who are working as hard as you do to help the other fans with staying in touch with these magazines and other scans... I really don't get how those meanies can't respect the effort you put into it.

I just wanted to say "Thank you!!♥♥" for uploading all of these beautiful scans... I always asked myself how you make them turn out so sharp and clear, but now I now it... lol, it must be tiring to over-do all of them! :<
Zutto ganbatte onegaishimasu~! >w<d Greetings to you. x3

Thanks for your kind words. I do hope that I've managed to give people a bit of an idea that in order to have nice images you need to do more than run a scanner over a photo and then just post it.

The main hassle I have now is that both Popolo and Myojo pages don't fit fully on my scan so I have to scan each of those pages twice and then join them together. So it's actually much easier to do Duet, Potato and WinkUp because, even though Potato has changed their size recently, the pages are still only as wide as an A4 page.

But it's nice to see the finished product.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

Hi Hi. Thank you for your beautiful work.

There is much love and sweat in each of the scans. They are very much appreciated!
Jul. 3rd, 2011 06:13 am (UTC)
thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Glad to hear you enjoy the scans.
Jun. 10th, 2011 03:36 pm (UTC)
I completely understand. It won't hurt to just put a link back to your site right? :/

By the way, thank you so much for all of your hardwork scanning those beautiful pictures. You're amazing.

Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Jul. 3rd, 2011 06:21 am (UTC)
Thank you for taking time to leave a comment. I don't lock anything away so there really is no need for anyone to take and repost them. Anyone can come and see them, but then, at the same time, the more they do get shared around the better for NEWS fandom.

thanks again
Jun. 29th, 2011 07:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you. For your words, your thoughts, your effort, and your willingness to continue. I always hate seeing watermarks all over faces. If you are going to do something like that.. make it smaller somewhere, otherwise what is the point of even SHARING it? I mean who wants -random huge name- through Koyama's face?? Always disappointing. I guess what those people don't realize is that scanning and sharing publically in the first place is still sharing someone elses work..I'm sorry though that you are getting smacked with your OWN scans with someone else's name all over them.. that's just bad form really..

Thanks again for being willing to continue what you do :) I'm glad I was directed here for good quality scans :D
Jul. 3rd, 2011 06:40 am (UTC)
Hi and thanks for you comments.

I'm so glad to see someone who understands that because a fan makes a copy of someone else's work, we don't become the owners of that work. And putting a watermark or copyright on any work done with images that belong to other people is still not a way to honour the copyright holder of the original image.

And to me that extends to sharing the scans. These are not photos that I took myself - putting something on a scanner is not the same as taking a photo - so I'm not sure what it is that fans think they actually own apart from their own time and efforts. And large defacing watermarks are just a cruel way to give people a glimpse but not truly share. Watermark or not you've still infringed on someone else's copyright to post the defaced scan.

And it's just not that enjoyable, like you said, to have some huge random name across Koyama's face. I wanna be looking at his face (and other parts) LOL!

thanks again

Great thanks, I think just the same. These H@#^$.com are a damage to the picture.
They place it over famous brand logos or even models faces.
5 out of 40 issues of the Gothic & Lolita Bible seem impossible to find without this blight.

The very last issue somehow can be found intact, even if the damaged copies abound. So not everything is lost I hope ^_^

Hi there!
Discovered your journal a while ago but haven't commented since I only recently got an lj account..
Anyways wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work! your scans are beautiful! And you totally deserve all the credits for it...I don't really re-upload anything as I mostly keep them for personal viewing but if i ever do, I will definitely credit you! Thank you again! :D otsukaresamadeshita

ps. i hope you won't mind if I add you as a friend? and...do you live in sydney? cause if you do...then thats another thing we have in common apart from loving the boys of news :D
Sep. 18th, 2011 05:15 am (UTC)
Hi and sorry for me taking so long to reply to your comment. Time just seems to fly by sometimes. I'm perfectly happy to see all NEWS fans enjoying my scans - seeing them in the regular magazines is about all we have left, and even then we just wait and hope that there will be a photoshoot of all the members together.

Thank you for adding me as friend - friends are always welcome. And yes I am in Sydney.

Hi, I'm Birdie from Vietnam. Thank you so much for sharing such amazing HQ scans w/o any restriction such as friend-locking. Your efforts are very appreciated. Btw I am about to set up a new Vietnamese community for Yamapi and I want to used some of your scans to make the banner. Could I? Of course creditting you properly is a must.

PS: I couldnt find scans of Yamapi in AnAn 2011 in your collection even though I'd seen them posted in various fansite with you as the source. Could you link me to that post?
Sep. 18th, 2011 05:23 am (UTC)
Hello and thanks for your message. Feel free to use any images I have scanned, and a credit is always appreciated. However, I did not scan Yamapi in AnAn this year - well not that I posted here.

I merged and edited some raw scans for a friend to make the complete pages of the issue, but they were posted on a locked post by watchful21. There were a number of scans that I did that were posted there. I only post scans here where I have bought the magazine or photo myself, basically, and I'm no longer a fan of Yamapi's and don't purchase magazines for him as I once did.

Good luck with your new community.

Hi. I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you do. Your scans are amazingly beautiful and perfect. I'm still kind of new to LJ but I'm a big NEWS fan. I promise if I ever use your scans, I'll give you full credit. :)
Thanks again for making us fans happy. ^_^
Hope it's okay if I added you as a friend.
Dec. 24th, 2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
Wow, I really admire what you do for all of us fans.
I never knew, or thought about those edits that you showed us.
And it just makes me respect and thank you more for all your work.
I hope people would understand that claiming credit for something that's not their's is pretty sad and evil. Such shame on them.
Your heart and aim for NEWS is the best and I really appreciate it!
Thank you so much!
Jan. 8th, 2012 06:54 am (UTC)
Some people just wish they were you.

People who has been around for some time would know to come directly to you for the top quality stuff. I'm really glad you have been doing this for so long for us and has no intention of stopping because it would just be a dagger through my heart if you do.

Love you.
Jan. 26th, 2012 02:06 am (UTC)
I completely agree
thank you so much for sharing the scans, I love them all :) And for some reason I agree with this post. I think It's bad if we don't give credit to other' works. Don't worry, I keep crediting you if I use your scans.

Once again, Thanks, and I appreciate your scans and hard works! :)
Jul. 23rd, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
I agree with you.
I think people take photos of this journal should write your credits. Simply writing in the credit "inala" we show our thankful to this journal and his important and work hard so we can all do see the scans of NEWS.
Thank you very much for your work!
Aug. 8th, 2012 05:51 am (UTC)
I finally have the chance to say 'thank you' to you! So, thank you for all your hard work :]
I've been curious about 'inala' for a while now, I always saw '(c)inala' (something like that) on fb. Now I finally decided to make an LJ account XD

You truly deserve being credited for all you've done for us fans. I tried to keep it short but...^-^' Oh well~ Umm...is it alright that I added you as friend? Still new to LJ ehehe...

Kudos to you! C:
Aug. 11th, 2012 07:21 am (UTC)
Hello and thank you for comment. Welcome to lj! And yes, I'm always happy to meet a new NEWS/Koyama fan. I'm away at the moment but I'm going to have lots of things to scan when I get home in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned, but take a look around.

If you find any links that don't work anymore, please let me know, though I can't promise I'm going to be updating anything that was only for Yamapi - there are some links I know about but I don't have all my files here.
