Jaria - Masumura Hiroshi c002

Read online

Another surreal fantasy story by Masumura, about a boy who discovers a legendary crystal city, and the strange cat who helped bring it forth.

If you'd like to work on any of Masumura's works, let me know. The pub raws kinda suck, so I wouldn't mind scanning whatever. Atagoul may or may not be worked on, depending on how things go, so I can scan that next if need be.

Urasawa Naoki no Manben - Asano Inio English Subs [alternate link]

September 8th: looks like the Dailymotion video got taken down? I haven't gotten any emails or notifications about it.

Oh well, we need to v3 it anyway, so it'll be reuploaded later. In the meantime, find the video on one of the numerous mirrors on Dailymotion. Reuploaded.

Edit 2: [v2]'s the subs, cropped the commercials.

720p hardsub
Sub file

Edit: Now on Youtube. 720, hardsubs, because .ass isn't accepted and .srt formatting might get broken.

Download 720 hardsubs (archiving/mirroring)

Re-encodes, corrected back to 16:9 so that the subs won't stretch out on VLC, etc. 480, 720.!E0xxEa6b!V78QHFNGPsiDxZDsaAZ3Pw

Here you go. DDLs are in the raw torrents.

.ass subs

1080i TS
.ass subs

Tested on MPC-HC, so proper sub formatting isn't guaranteed on VLC, etc. The aspect ratio might be weird on anything other than MPC-HC. The 480p was a beginner Handbrake encode that I got from a PtP tutorial, so if anyone puts out a better encode from the 1080i TS, let me know and I'll post it here.

Apparently, satellite.ts are anamorphic, and this can be corrected while encoding. I'll leave that to more competent people.

TL/timing: laika
QC: water

Youtube doesn't support .ass subs, and converting to .srt breaks the signs, etc.So, if someone feels like fixing that on their own accord, please upload it to Youtube and I'll add the link here.

Movie PV 8/23/2016 - Kono Sekai no Katasumini c000a-000c

Fall 2016, so set your RSS for "この世界の片隅に", "To All The Corners Of The World", or "Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni." Teaser trailer:

You might know this author for Town of Evening Calm.

This was originally planned as a teaser chapter when it was announced that this was being adapted into a movie. However, JManga rips were posted online shortly after. So, unless JManga butchered it, you can read the rest of this series via those rips.

BLAME! c001 [Shinsoban retranslation], Sidonia S2 LE BD 1 Omake, Sidonia v15 Omake

BLAME (shinsoban + retranslation):

Read online

We used the ebook raw rather than our scans, because it seems that after Nihei edited the scans, the black color wasn't properly tuned for the print. Thus certain dark areas, such as the darkest parts of gradient screentone, got huge detail loss. On the scan, that is. Maybe only in the first chapter, since it was done from manuscript. I'll have to see is the problem persists after I scan the second shinsoban chapter. There are also a few discrepancies between the original and the shinsoban print, so we've included the original pages along with a changelog (NFO).


The bonus BLAME chapter that came with S2's Limited Edition BD, and the illustration that came with v15. The last author comment page just talks about his books and merchandise, amounting to "buy my stuff."

Manben S2E1 - Hagio Moto


One of the 24-Gumi. She helped pioneer both modern shoujo manga and modern science fiction manga.

Moto Hagio made her professional debut in 1969 at the age of 20 with her short story "Lulu to Mimi" in Nakayoshi. Later, for Shogakukan Publishing, she produced a series of short stories for various magazines. Two years after her debut, she published Juichigatsu no Gimunajiumu (The November Gymnasium), a short story which dealt openly with love between two boys at a boarding school. The story was part of a larger movement by female manga artists at the time which pioneered a genre of girls' comics about love between young men. In 1974, Hagio developed this story into the longer Toma no Shinzo (The Heart of Thomas). She was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1976 for her science fiction classic Juichinin Iru! (They Were Eleven) and her epic tale Poe no Ichizoku (The Poe Family).

Matt Thorn has put up an interview with her in '95 at his website. Another translated interview with Hagio Mote conducted in 1996 can be read here. SF Online Interview with Hagio Moto has also been translated.

You can find cover scans, etc. from Harta in this folder. The Unoshima Yoh illustration from 2015-05 was cleaned, so you can find that in the folder, as well.

In other news, #EverydayHeroes Scans posted a recent Harta oneshot. GoldenRoze Scans also posted a Garo oneshot that I scanned some time ago. That actually has a second chapter, so I'll buy that. GoldenRoze also worked on a few other Harta oneshots by a particular author, Wada Takashi, and various other oneshots that you might like.

This is why you keep backups.

I come back from the weekend, only to find that Desktop Mediafire somehow glitched and nuked some folders (including my scans folder). I should have backups of everything, but the DDL folder might be sparse for a bit while I reupload everything.

Edit: Everything should be up by now. The rest of my Mediafire folder is now a disorganized mess, because Mediafire somehow moved a bunch of files around. The links should still work, but if you need a link for any scans, etc., let me know.

[raws] Iblard Monogatari - Inoue Naohisa

“A manga written by Inoue Naohisa featuring all the main characters of Iblard. The book consists of multiple short stories such as “The Legend of Megezo”,“How to get home from the Market”,“The awakening of a Laputa,” which introduce us to these main characters and their powers. This book is also the key to learning the unique words, expressions and objects of Iblard. Much like looking through a window, Iblard Monogatari explores the fantastic and beautiful world of Iblard by panning through art created by Naohisa Inoue. Iblard shows itself to be nothing short of amazing and will wash serenity over your mind.”
Naohisa Inoue a fantasy artist influenced by both the Surrealism and Impressionism movements. Most of his paintings are set in the fantastical land of Iblard (イバラード). He created reference and background art for the Studio Ghibli film Whisper of the Heart and also provided a cameo appearance as the voice of Minami. More recently, his works were given a more direct adaptation in the short film The Day I Harvested a Star (星をかった日 Hoshi o Katta Hi?) which will be shown exclusively at the Ghibli Museum. He directed the 2007 OVA Iblard Jikan, produced by Studio Ghibli.
Inoue is currently a professor at Seian University of Art and Design.
