Hidan no Aria - PDF/MOBI/EPUB Volume 6+

Post by carj »

Volumes 1-5 will remain abandoned according the general project abandonment and reinstatement policy. Please do not share or request pdfs or other files for those volumes.


THANKS FOR THE TRANSLATION

now every 1 of u guys that read this go thx the translators too >=O, send them flowers, chocolates, a car, or even buy them a house if u cant...at least say thx to them =P

okkk~~~~ that took long but volume 7 is up, go get it, again there r some error with the translator's notes, specially in chapter 4 so yea there will be a remake of this pdf too, but not any time soon xP, oh n i noticed that the images r kinda small so if there r new images w/ better quality n resolution ill change them =P

oh yea i almost forgot i noticed that i didnt put the "document name" in the pdf as "Hidan no Aria - Volume 0x", where x is any number, the thing about the missing 0 is that if you use any program besides adobe reader, for example Adobe Digital Editions that lets u keep a library of your books, when the volumes pass 10 they will group below volume 1 instead of volume 9, it personally bothers me but i dont wanna re-upload the individual pdfs just for that, so when we reach volume 10 ill do a batch with the files fixed

This is excellent, job well done!

Can I make one suggestion? Change the properties of the .pdf file, specifically, the author field. Put "Akamatsu Chuugaku" instead of your real name. This will allow the author to be displayed on e-reading devices (and maintain your privacy).

Ello, dropping in here. Lurked a while, thought I'd register and post.


I've been playing around with a PDF generation library (open source, with a license less limiting than the MIT license which is renown for being a very open license), and I thought I'd take it for a spin here by doing a demo generation of the first volume to see how well I've got the generation script down.
There is a drawback though: the library in use cannot handle UTF8 characters at all; all input must be encoded using ISO-8859-1.

Download:
Volume 1 - all sections - http://www.mediafire.com/?bqk885w61jg4rge

If someone can peruse the PDF and let me know of any problems opening it, encoding issues, or some general feedback on the layout of the document itself, I'd appreciate the input.
If all goes well, I'm willing to take a swing at pulling the text for the rest of the volumes and setting up the script to generate PDFs for the remaining volumes as well.



Oh, I'm willing to share the script(s) used to generate the PDF if anyone's curious; feel free to PM.

EDIT: Found a bunch of malformed UTF8 that still made it into the PDF. I'm adjusting the regular expressions to replace it with ISO-8859-1 safe characters. Forgive me, translators. ;_;


Current replacements:
Spoiler! :

Code: Select all

    $search = array(
        '/…/u',
        '/[ßβ]/u',
        '/‘/u',
        '/ï/u',
        '/♪/u',
        '/[―—]/u',
        '/[『』]/u',
        '/à/u',
        '/è/u',
    );
    $replace = array(
        '...',
        'beta',
        '\'',
        'i',
        '*',
        '-',
        '`',
        'a',
        'e',
    ); 


If I've gotten a replacement wrong or there's a better replacement, feel free to suggest.

Actually, I didn't forget them. I omitted them. Trying to get them in the PDF nicely is driving me up the wall at the moment. -_-;

The problem is, I'm using a straight text file of the content to generate the PDF with; it's not going from HTML to PDF or anything like that, but rather from a set of text files.
I don't have a way to indicate where the image thumbnail should go; to add in the images, somehow I'd have to get the script to set enough lines of text to not take up the entire page width so that the image could be placed in the designated area. I have not the slightest idea on how to determine on-the-fly how much text would have to move and how much horizontal/vertical space the image needs.

To put it simply, I'm in a state of "A-S-D-F&#^ING F" about the images.


I do have good news though. I've switched PDF generation libraries, the newer library contains unicode support...with a drawback. Depending on the PDF reader, the user might have to install a specific font; for Adobe reader, I think it was "Japan1".
The PDF viewer in Google Chrome 14 dev branch however supports the font natively...with a bit of an ugly font, but eh, it's readable without those bloody rectangles everywhere.

Here's the latest run of the script: http://www.mediafire.com/?3cdffxbe4u29lhb

I'm gonna play around with the generation script a bit more, see if I can figure out how exactly to divide up the text files so that it can still be automated easily. It'll take some time though.

Oh, about the images...do you guys use a specific size or have a size constraint of any kind for thumbnail height/width?
It'd help me figure out how to tune the generator if I knew.

well first i dont generate the pdf from 0 i use MS Word to set the format and generate the pdf from there, then i add the bookmarks and colored images to the pdf

as for the images inside the text theyr (height/width) 9" x 6.25", thats the size i use for the single page images and i dont remember if aria has double page images lol, that size is pretty much works on the epub versions that i make for my self, the width fits on the screen of my N8 on landscape lol


oh yea on a side note the pdfs for volume 3 n 4 r coming up tonight =D

Once again, thank you.

We need some better illustration scans of Volume 7. Those are quite bad quality.

Volume 7. I was just speaking to myself, I do not really need another scan of the novel. While the images are bad quality, it is fine.
