Urasawa Naoki Manben - NHK E Special Rips [S1 end]

Edit: Asano Inio's episode is being translated. If anyone with experience in Aegisub wants to help time/sub it, that'd be great. Otherwise, you'll get an amateur hack job from yours truly.

These have not been translated yet. If you're interested in translating any of them, let me know and I'll update this post.

That's the season. Until March 2016.

A Japanese documentary TV series will examine the process of drawing manga from an insider's perspective. Urasawa Naoki no Manben (which, roughly translated, means "Naoki Urasawa's Manga Exertions") is hosted by veteran manga artist Naoki Urasawa (Monster, Pluto, 20th Century Boys) and follows different artists each episode, watching them draw their manga from scratch and exploring what differentiates their styles.

The first episode looks at Akiko Higashimura (Princess Jellyfish) as she draws her Warring States Era manga Yukibana no Tora ("Snow Tiger"), emphasizing her speed and the teamwork with her large team of assistants.

The second episode focuses on Kazuhiro Fujita (Ushio and Tora), who eschews rough drafts and uses lots of white-out to draw his latest series, The Black Museum: Ghost and Ready.

Episode 3 examines Inio Asano (Goodnight Pun Pun), who draws his science-fiction series Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction with a mixture of pen and paper and computer software.

The fourth episode peeks behind the curtain of Takao Saitō's workplace, where he has labored away at Golgo 13 for 47 years.

Original pilot episode.

Program has hardsubs for main dialogue, softsubs for secondary dialogue (narrator, etc.).

Attention Wet Moon Translator

It seems like you aren't getting my emails for some reason.

Yes, I got the book, and I've started scanning it. If you aren't getting my emails, pop into IRC.

Mononoke Soushi c027

Are you enjoying this series? I'll also be scanning his oneshot anthology, Strange World. Only one chapter of it was translated, though. It's a grab-bag of either chapters from his other series (such as Mugen Shinshi), or his other oneshots. If you'd like to work on that, please let me know.

Sorry it took so long.

The publisher said that the magazine chapters are in a different order than what is planned for the final volume (this has happened before), but also seemed to imply that some of these chapters might be excluded? In any case, there's the special edition, which will include other cut chapters. Here are a few chapters.

Also, because Shonen Ace is the size of a phonebook, I only bought the chapters that didn't have public raws. The releases that use the public raws probably won't look that great, but that's what the tank is for, right? At least we'll know if Arawi decides to redraw a chapter (as he's done before).

The rest of the chapters will be done in chronological order; these just happen to be what arrived first.

Houseki no Kuni c027

This series needs a JP-EN translator to continue.

I had to bum this script off of someone a while ago. If a new translator never shows up, there's at least a Japanese->Russian->English translation on Batoto. I can't vouch for the translation accuracy, but the dialogue in Houseki is pretty simple, so you should be able to understand what's going on.

Volume 5 should be coming out soon. If you'd like to buy it, here is a good store.

Meitantei Marnie c03 [v2] [Teaser chapters]

Revised c03's script.

More teaser chapters. Some cool group out there should pick this up.

Alternatively, someone can volunteer to translate.

By the author of Franken Fran.

"Where there are people, there is drama and troubles to be solved. Marnie's father works as a detective to solve problems created between people, whether they are marriage issues or murder cases. Just like her father, Marnie also solves cases as long as the price is right. She usually lives as a normal student, sleeping through her classes, but once a client asks for her help, she will stop at nothing to solve the mystery laid before her."

Editor(s) Needed - Various Orphaned Scripts

I have a handful of orphaned scripts, if any stray editor is interested in one of these.

[Raws] Some oneshots from Aoharu 0.99.

Scanned a few oneshots from Aoharu 0.99. This issue is where Dowman Sayman’s “Dream of the Elephant” was published. Magazine-paper quality.

BLAME/Abara reprints have all been purchased.

Thanks to generous anons who have more disposable income than I, all volumes of the BLAME reprint, and the ABARA reprint, have been purchased. That covers the most expensive part, so now we just have to buy the original print (around $6 per volume, because the shinsoban changed a few things), and we're set for the HQ scanlation. I already have the first few volumes anyway, so progress will be made soon.

Thanks again. Expect a few Dowman Sayman/Sidonia things soon.

Poster Scan - Beageruta

Forgot that I had this. An issue of Nemesis that I bought for that Hisa Masato oneshot had a Beageruta poster in it (Samura Hiroaki), so here it is. This should be the cleaned scan.
