Oh shit, dubs confirm.
I ended up buying a lot of stuff from places like amazon.co.jp etc, actually.
Don't have the means to scan (nor the patience. These things have a lot of pages)

Lup is vvvv cute on the cover
make a thread when you do
And take screenshots of the book
Sweet! I look forward to your unboxing poasts
Makes me wonder how easy it would be to rip assets from the various Lup Salad iso's. I will look into it…

Nicely packaged in bubble wrap. It's in pretty good condition.

And the back.
(Oh, by the way, another answer to my OP question appears to be "Get the thing off Perfect Dark with '75冊' in the name. It doesn't appear to have Lup Salad, though.)

Admin, I regret to inform you that you're going to have to change the name of this site. ;_;

Under the dust jacket. She seems a bit distressed.

But by the back cover she's gotten over it.

Here's the inside. The chapters usually open with Oji-san and Lup dressed up in costumes of some sort.

Here they're cavemen and cavegirls.

Lup also dresses up a lot in the chapters.

It would take me some time to actually go through and read it, but I think the basic plot is that Lup asks Oji-san about something, he tells her a story, and she imagines it in the panels.

She makes some cute faces.

This story seems to be about Lup being a sleepy genie until Ojisan gives her her first taste of coffee, with predictable results.

There's also some decent sf/fantastical art, which I appreciate.

And here's (blurry) Lup as a penguin in some of Takemoto's comments(?) at the end of the book.

So anyway, that's Lup Salad on my dusty floor. She's really cute and I'm looking forward to reading it. That's all for now– wait, what's that?

I think I figured out how to do levelling and de-specking correctly. I sort of prefer the untouched raws because they give a nice, paper-y feel, but they also compress poorly and seem to be frowned upon.
Does this look okay compared to the image above?
File: 1596199377439.png (220.12 KB, 1273x1933, lup traced.png)
can you upload this page in full resolution somewhere? both original and de-noised would be awesome
Yeah, I'm almost done processing things for a “normal” downscaled release as well. After I spend some time with various encoders, I'll post the mega links.
The 600 DPI png raws are about 4G, and when levelled and cleaned about 850M. It looks like the normal, resized release is going to be ~150M, which seems about normal these days.
Thank you so much for all your hard work. The write-up on the process is appreciated too; as someone who primarily (ab)uses Photoshop it's intriguing to see image processing done from the command line.
But now it's time for the real work: someone has to read the thing and tell us if it's any good
