Cyber Blue ch 1

After a blitzkrieg scanlating session today, I finally finished Cyber Blue chapter 1. It's 72 pages long; think of it as Hokuto no Ken + Terminator. Two doses of manliness...Can you take it!?

Edit: Because having sole ownership of raws might count as a monopoly, as a pre-emptive anti-trust action, here's the raws of all 4 volumes, as given to me by dxInt

Kaibutsu Oujo 35, and Cyber Blue...not quite yet

I'm excited to say that I'm translating Kaibutsu Oujo for Ala Atra now. The scanlations will be better and faster (it took four days for chapter 34 on my own, but only three for chapter 35 with Ala Atra)!

Meanwhile, I'm starting Cyber Blue on my own. It's by the same artist as Hokuto no's like a cyberpunk Hokuto no Ken. Here's a preview

The first chapter is 73 pages long, though, and I don't want to split it up. I'm done with about 34 of them, so it's due sometime at the end of this week. Next chapters are only 20+ pages (it was on Shonen Jump, after all), so they'll be released faster, assuming I'm not busy doing the script for the next KO.

I decided not to pick up G Senjou after all because it seems that Manga Underground already has a group doing it. Besides, it's not translated to Chinese, so the chapters would be slow and painful

Kaibutsu Oujo Chapter 34

For the moment, I decided to proceed with picking up Kaibutsu Oujo.

I'll definitely be looking at the manga that brave lone commenter posted. G Senjou Heaven's Door seems easy enough at 5 chapters left; I have the raw already, I just need to read the first 2 volumes

Without further ado:
Chapter 34

Despera Scans

I really fucking hate to back away from an obligation, but I know my limitations as a translator, and this is it. I promised to translate the readable magazine scans on Despera (a.k.a. Serial Experiments Lain 2), but they're just too intense. I do know some details:
  • The interview scan (1269334010682) was taken when the team announced that they had reached the halfway point
  • 1269333638174 (above) is a short story on Ain. Apparently she talks to some stranger about the theory of relativity. Ain = Ainsutain (Einstein)?
I re-hosted the scans here. Only a few are readable, and I partially translated the interview.

What next?

So...more Mudazumo OVAs and Nanoko&! probably won't be out for a while, Mudazumo OVA DVD is still downloading (3.94 / 4.13 GB), and Paradox is finished...What do I translate next?

Suggest any manga (no anime, I'm not a subbing group) that:
  • Is not actively translated
  • Must not have too much untranslated material. As much as I would like to translate Birdy II/Evolution and Master Keaton, 200+ chapters is too much
  • Not erotic
  • Have raws easily downloadable. No Genkaku Picasso, sorry

Prime suspects right now are:
  1. Kaibutsu Oujo (Ala Atra seems to have dropped it)
  2. Hanako to Guuwa no Tera (ended in 4 volumes)

Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (aka Legend of Koizumi) OVA 3 Subs

There's probably more that a couple of times I BS'd the subs ("By the time I throw you in jail, you'll be shitting grass!"), but I made it out as best as I could.

Steal it! Improve it! I beg of you!

Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (aka Legend of Koizumi) OVA 2 Subs

gg doesn't seem to be interested in this (well, no good raws have appeared yet, only a Youtube rip), so I made an amateur sub and remux.

Steal it! Improve it! I beg of you!

Nanako&! Vol 01

You seemed to have left some Persona 4 in my Yotsuba&!

Vol 01 (I'm not entirely sure how to serialize this, since this is a doujin)

Other than Legend of Koizumi (which I only translated a few chapters), my first scanlations:

A place to put my scanlations

I do some manga scanlations every so often. This is a place more permanent than /a/ to put up my scanlations
