Welcome / Welcome Back

There are a few things I feel I need to say regarding the scans that I share on this journal.

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

i'm really glad that you share something that you have and not expecting something in return. you're type of personality is rare. and there are people who are just abusive and claim that the work of others are theirs. i hope those kind of people doesn't make you to stop sharing. i'm taking some of your scans but i'm not uploading it to any site. it's just for myself and for my sister. just something for our wallpaper in our tab. we both love NEWS and we appreciate how much you share for the other fans of NEWS. i hope that the more you share, the more people will understand your feelings, and the more people will appreciate your work.

Dear Inala: im respect you work and love the way you think, is a big example for the fans... thank you so much for sharing...

Hello~ ^0^

I decided to return to the NEWS fandom a few days ago and have been looking for material to update myself, and so I stumbled upon your journal.

First of all, I want to thank you for spending so much time and effort into scanning and editing all of these. It's already nice enough of you to do all that, and yet you aren't asking for credit for any of them. Now that is selfless, and I'm sure you have the respect and appreciation from most of the fans that have benefited from your labor (including mine), even if you're not asking for it. I find that rare in people nowadays. :3

I think it was a good move that you shared your insight regarding this sharing matter. Most people don't really care where they get their material (and I admit to being guilty of it a couple of times for graphics, but I assure you that I've learned my lesson!) and even have the nerve to demand credit when they themselves don't do it. When it comes to fandom, you can't just take, you at least have to give something back, even if it's just a word of thanks. People need to understand that.

I understand you
And I agree totally. It's already great that you want to scan this all and share it with us, but some people just don't understand the hardship you've put and even without asking for credit and all.

I understand what you mean and I am agree with you.
I hope the best for you.

-your biggest admirer

I have one little question. I want to know where you find papapics you post on your LJ. Because you always post KoyaShige only, but I search TegoMasu too. So, I want to know, where I can find scans' papapics of Tegomasu. Thank you in advance and sorry if my question is inappropriate !

And thank you for sharing all this scans ^^

Everything I post here are magazines and photos that I have bought and scanned myself. So they're all things that I own.

The places I find the photos are yahoo.jp auctions as well as stores in Japan - though yahoo.jp auctions is probably the main place I buy them from.

However they are generally only offered for sale for a limited time after the event they relate to. I don't know about TM photos because I don't buy those ones and I don't repost other people's scans here.

You make a amazing work! And since so long! I'm really admire.
I took some scan in your collection for myself. And I will follow your work for the future! Again thank you! :D
Aug. 9th, 2013 03:14 pm (UTC)
You're amazing! You're scans are so cool and beautiful, please continue like that (>u<)9

PS. I agree with you about the rules. c:

I have to agree with you. I suppose most NEWS scans that I'm seeing (especially on tumblr) are from you. They edit those scans, then when someone "steals" it from them, they get mad as if they did all the hard work to get them when all they did was edit those pictures.

I do understand if they feel that way, but sometimes they whine as if they really own them.

You really do a hard work for all fans. It's ok you tell your feelings in public and everyone learn to appreciate your work! And I want to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU for share everything you can. Thank you so much from the botton of my heart <3
Jul. 9th, 2014 12:54 am (UTC)
This irritates me so much!
I'm not from Japan, so basically, people like you are the only source I have to access these images with quality, but people that do not credit or do do worse, they claim the credit that is originally someone else's, this is SO disrespectful. I cannot begin to imagine the work you go through to make these images available, thank you so much, and please, don't mind these people...
Sep. 11th, 2014 04:27 pm (UTC)
I can't believe that this thing still happens with your scan post until now.

People should give a little bit more respect to someone like you who has been dedicated so much and kind enough to open this open community to share the scan photo of the guys.

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to you. Thank you very much for all your hard works.

Oct. 26th, 2014 12:00 am (UTC)
First of all, thank you for sharing and thank you for your work xD

Second of all, I'm a fanfic writer and I usually make graphics for my stories. Honestly, I haven't kept track of where I get the pictures from, more often than not I google them. However I may have used some of the pictures I found here on my posters, I do apologize.

I just want to know if I can still use you scans for my graphics if I credit you. Your scans are really good quality. I understand if you don't want me to so I'll stop and not use your scans for graphics any more.

Again, I'm sorry I didn't think about this before. I would very much like to use your scans but I will respect your wishes about the it xD

If you want to see the graphics you can check out my LJ or ask me for the links.

Also, regardless of your answer, I haven't added you, can I?

Sorry for the long comment!
Thank you!

Thanks for your message and asking about the scans. Please feel free to use them for your graphics. The only thing that I don't approve of is people reposting them and trying to claim credit for them, though that happens a lot less often now which is good.

And yes, please feel welcome to add me. There aren't any locked posts on this livejournal but it will help you to see the updates. Thanks again.

I read this now. You are totally right, and I really want to thank you for share with us.

"If crediting is important to you, then it should be as important to give it as well as receive it." So TRUE.

Thank you again.

My dear, I've wrote you before and I'm doing it now again.

I have a KoyaShige page on FB and I would like to share your links, I mean, to put the link direct to your page, (all related to download things) I wonder if that is it right for you.

:) Tell me what do you think!

Of course credit will be there x3!!

Jan. 3rd, 2015 06:45 am (UTC)

I'm definitely happy if you want to share my stuff on FB, especially on a KoyaShige page. Not a problem and thank you for asking.
Jan. 3rd, 2015 03:45 pm (UTC)
Hello! Thank you for always sharing all these precious scans with us! Would just like to check with you if it is okay for me to do translations of the magazine interviews based on your scans? :)
Jan. 3rd, 2015 10:26 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year! And yes, it would be great if you were to translate some of them magazine scans.

Inala, I just want to express my utmost thanks for always sharing high quality scans with the rest of the NEWS fandom, and for not restricting your posts to friends only.

I apologize for never noticing before when other people post your photos, and will try to be more alert from now onwards.

Thanks so much for all your contributions! :)

Hi and thanks for your message.

And it's just never been my idea about fandom that you hide things away, but tell everyone at the same time that you have it. I don't get that, especially with scans that are in magazines that you could buy if you lived in the right place - or like me, spend the money to get them shipped from Japan.

I also think that if you don't want to share things, or have them passed around, then just don't put them on the internet. However, I think we all need to respect and appreciate each other - I remember very clearly all those years ago when I was a new fan and how I relied on everyone else to share things.

And if not for those people sharing and getting me totally hooked, I wouldn't still be here now.

thanks again
Dec. 5th, 2015 04:10 am (UTC)
Thank you for all your hard works. It's true that people sometimes do that kind of things, re-post and add credit for their own. I myself will gladly buy the original if I can, but sadly, I still can't routinely do that. Just every once in a while. So I'm really thankful to you. Keep the spirit.
I sometimes do some retouch to the picture, but I never post/repost it up until now. I just do it for myself, and to try and increase my photo editing skill. Is that OK? I will credit you if I ever post them.

Здравствуйте! Как насчёт подружиться журналами?
Apr. 24th, 2016 05:56 pm (UTC)
Hi Inala,

I just wanted to express my gratitude for all the scans that you kindly share. I've only started out as a NEWS fan and I feel extremely blessed to have scans available already from the get go after looking around and coming across your journal. Coming from my other fandom where scans are much harder to search for and find, it's something that I'm very grateful for.

Although at the moment I have no plans to use your scans for edits, I would just like to inform you that I may like to in the future, if that is alright with you. My plans are to insert credit back to you, as just as you say, you have personally decided to let the scans available to the public to share the NEWS love, so following those values is what I plan to do. Of course, if it's better not to, that's fine as well.

Once again, thank you always! :)
May. 1st, 2016 09:23 pm (UTC)
I just felt like saying thank you once again for sharing all these scans. I've been in this fandom for many years and I've seen all the bad and good sides. People like you who share like this have become quite rare. I can understand because it's really not fun with certain people doing all sorts of crap to our files. Thank you for keeping going anyway <3 you're awesome.
May. 1st, 2016 09:35 pm (UTC)
Ah I forgot... Maybe you could add 'by inala' to your download folders? :D I often download things but then when I'm in a rush I might forget to add the credit to the folder. I have folders I downloaded YEARS ago and it's impossible to track those sources down /sob >.< sigh. no excuses for all the cheaters tho. I give my best adding the owner to my folders these days but yeah.... >< Just an idea!! :))

Hello, I just wanted to leave a couple of words, since I'm going to add your journal to my friends page for having updates about your posts...

Your scans quality is amazing, and I'm really grateful for all NEWS stuff you share...
I knew them for many years, but I fell in love with them only when they were left in 4...
I don't know why... Maybe because my favorites (Shige/Keii-chan) now are shining more, or because I like the harmony of their 4voices together or... I don't really know...

I just ended up loving them...

And now a little introduction...
I'm Pelko from Europe...
Not so young, not so smart, maybe annoying, in love with many JE groups...
Including juniors... Especially the ones who often backdance at NEWS from Johnny's Dance Family ^^

Oh, right, it's not like I expect you follow me back because I left a message or whatever, I just don't like randomly add people's LJ without saying a word.

Have a nice day/afternoon/night
