We are 6string, a team that translates Japanese fancomics for your enjoyment. ;) The fandoms will vary depending on our mood- we are fickle modcreatures!- but for now we are focusing primarily on the fandom Axis Powers Hetalia. We will take most of our sources from pixiv, but are open to requests from just about anywhere. Please don't repost them without our permission, even if you credit!

[Scanlation] And Then

Title: And Then
Artist: Miyuki
Rating: G
Summary: A lonely Spain reminisces about his life with Romano. Spain+Romano.
Comments: A sweet, nostalgic comic. Slightly angsty, but with a cheerful ending to make up for it. <3 Let us know what you think! ("How to Seduce Girls"? Really, Romano? XD)

[Scanlation] Impatience 2

Title: Impatience 2/?
Artist: Yamato★Tagiru
Rating: PG
Summary: Spain and Prussia have some alone time that turns awkward after a little miscommunication. SpainxPrussia.
Comments: Second part! Gil is upset, and Antonio isn't helping. Btw, Spain's exclamation in the last panel is the equivalent of an incoherent yell, kinda like a keyboard smash. :)

[Preview] Impatience 2 + Modpost

First off, I'd just like to say thank you very much for your support! We're so glad that so many people are interested in what we're doing, and that you all enjoyed the comics we've translated so far. ♥ Please remember, though, that we are only two poor college students who work part-time, and as much as we'd love to translate everything for you, there's only so much we can do at one time. ^^- I'd like to be able to predict... around one comic a week? Because of our fluctuating schedules we can't promise anything, but we will do our best for you guys!

That said, we're already ahead of schedule with our next few comics, one of which is the sequel to "Impatience":

Yes, yes, me and my PruSpa, I know. I'm a mod so I get to be biased~

Thank you again for watching/joining/commenting! We really appreciate it. :]

Make Requests Here!

Please provide us the link to the pixiv comic you would like us to scanlate, as well as one sentence that more or less describes what seems to be going on and who are the present characters (for organizational purposes).

Other users may bump up requests by posting +1's or otherwise give other comments. Feel free to spam us with requests! :D

As we are a two-man team with college lives to attend to, we ask that people limit their requests to the minimum number possible. Please consider which would be your top 3 or 4 comics you would like to see scanlated ♥ We thank everyone for their enthusiasm and their treasure chests of pixiv links. However, we must be mindful of reality: six_string_scan is simply incapable of fulfilling every single request. Thank you for your understanding!

All and any pairings/characters/themes are welcome!

Please note that the mods withold the right to choose the priority level of each request depending on the length of the comic, how much editing typesetting would require, and how popular (+1'd) the requests are. All requests, however, will be taken into consideration! :)

[Scanlation] Impatience

Title: Impatience 1/?
Artist: Yamato★Tagiru
Rating: PG-13 (for one-time use of the f-word. Oh, Gilbert.)
Summary: Spain and Prussia have some alone time that turns awkward after a little miscommunication. SpainxPrussia.
Comments: I have such a weakness for this pairing~ But even if it's not your cup of tea, this comic is cute enough that it might not matter. This is the first strip in a multi-comic series. It's also really long. -.-;

Title: Wake Up!
Artist: Yamato★Tagiru
Rating: G
Summary: Prussia is asleep; Spain and France feel a sense of déjà vu.
Comments: This one is short but sweet; can be interpreted as SpainxPrussia but only if you squint.

Bio/Introductory Post

Welcome to Six-String Scanlations, a faux-scanlation group that translates Pixiv comics. We will mostly be focused on stories revolving around Spain, but we are more than happy to take requests!

Meet the Mods!

artemis_elric: Artemis is an American college student who hails from the Midwest. She is majoring in International Studies and is the editor/typesetting half of the team. She met Elisa something like five years ago on deviantART and was recently able to visit her in person. It was an amazing week and the two of them solidified a great friendship. ♥ She cosplays Spain frequently, and her other fandoms include Ace Attorney, Tales of Abyss and Symphonia, FMA, Ouran, and Durarara!!

monelisa is a half-Spanish, half-Japanese college student living in the East Coast of the US, studying Computer Science as her major. She is the Japanese→English translator of 6String Scanlations, also serving as typeset checker, and secondary script editor.

Although she is not fluent in Japanese, and she has had very little formal classes with the language, she has had previous experience as an English translator & editor in a joint collaboration with pao_8d for D.Gray-man doujinshi scanlations. English is her most fluent language.

Her favorite character is Ivan Braginsky/Russia, and she loves Spain with all her patriotic heart (XD) She shares the same fandoms as Artemis_Elric, in addition to D.Gray-man, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Gintama, Bakuman, and many others :)

History of 6String Scanlations

One night, on October 19, 2010, Artemis_Elric sends an original pixiv link of Impatience to MonElisa, asking for a script translation of the comic. She furthermore sends a link to The Very First Time, asking for a rough translation.

After these late-night translating, MonElisa impromptuly suggests that they "form a project" (which in 2AM language means "create a partnership") over scanlated comic strips from pixiv.net. A couple of comic strips later, they produced final goods and opened the six_string_scan community on October 24, 2010.
