What is a cleaner?
A cleaner is someone who is responsible for making the raw pages smooth, tidy, and easy to read. After scanning, the series pages usually look ugly and dirty; black parts, white parts, and gray parts are not very distinctive. A cleaner's job is to fix those black-and-white coloring, put it in a contrast to make things clear and easy to look at. This process is called leveling. A cleaner also fixes minor mistakes in the pages, for example when you put two pages into one big page and the pictures do not really connect from one page to another. A cleaner redraws this part so they would look better. Finally, a cleaner must also clean the speech bubbles from all texts to be replaced with translations by typesetters later on.
