Spreadsheet for Garo, if you're wondering how it's coming along. I'll embed it somewhere proper whenever I feel like it.

Sidonia c073

The funding for the Sidonia BD has been covered. Thanks again to those who donated. We're still accepting donations for the BLAME! HQ scanlation. The first two volumes have shipped already. There are a few small differences that have been noticed already between the original print and the shinsoban, so we'll be merging both prints for the HQ rescanlation project.

If you'd like to support Nihei Tsutomu, you can easily buy the books via these links (for cheap, in most cases).

The BLAME reprint looks pretty good. Here are a couple pictures by an anon.

In other news, I've secured a copy of Dowman Sayman's Sidonia doujinshi.

Big Girls c016


Volume 2 will be released for sale soon. You can buy it here, if you want to support the author, etc. You get 300 yen for signing up, so the cost of the book would end up being around $8.50 if you choose the cheapest shipping option (SAL).

I wonder how much of the art will be redrawn? There are still plans to redo v1 with proper tank scans, but it's also grind season for most schools right now.

In other news, the next chapter of Handred is translated, and awaiting editing.

The cover for the second volume of BLAME!'s reprint has also been posted. If you're interested in buying the reprints of BLAME, you can visit this link.

If you want to buy the books

It's tough being a ghost in the modern era. A group known as "The Seven Wonders" are distressed by the lack of children taking tests of courage to the school that they haunt. Without children who believe in them and perpetuate ghost stories, they will eventually cease to exist! Can they figure out how to instill fear in children, or is the modern world already scary enough?

I'm scanning Garo, and need staff.

Garo was an alternative manga magazine that ran for about 450 issues. Expect a wide variety of contributions from popular artists, and artists that have since left their 15 minutes in the limelight, under every genre known to man.

I'm not going to write an essay on it a la Hox, etc., so just browse TSOJ or the hefty amount of Tumblr posts.

These issues will primarily be one-shots, so if you're interested in translating/editing random chapters that might interest you, email me and I'll send you whatever I have at the moment.

Quick status update.

There might be a series that you're waiting on in this pile of shit that I have to scan. Sorry about that.

I'll scan Area 51 over the weekend, and maybe some Hisa Masato.
