Terra Formars: Chapter 161 v1.01 (English)

As you probably guessed, I’ll be doing the series in the laziest way possible. But hey, at least it’s something. At any rate, even if I had a cleaner, I wouldn’t redraw because when I did the first half of last chapter it just sank in how much time I would waste doing redraw when I could just fucking translate and typeset like you know, the two main things I’m capable of.

Meh. In any case, my main objective is to attempt to catch us up to the raws before the series starts up again in mid march. So, hopefully at that time, Mangastream will pick the series back up or possibly another scanlation group because I honestly don't want to get stuck doing this for the rest of my fucking life. Anyway, see ya!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 9 - Part 2 English Translation

Ack! Got a throbbing headache, blocked nose, random shivers from time to time and feel terrible. Now, you are probably wondering to yourself why exactly would I translate, typeset and all that jazz if I'm feeling under the weather? Well, for one, I'm bored, two, I need to do something, and third, can't play Rome: Total War all day now, can I? Anyway, another chapter of just fuck my shit up bug island, but sadly, we are catching up to the raws and unfortunately these gloworms go on for multiple chapters until then. Sigh. Things aren't looking up at all for this manga. Anyway, bye!

Terra Formars: Chapter 160 v1.10 (English)

Kek. Well, there wasn’t exactly any blurred dicks on that credits page so hopefully it’ll be fine. That, and I doubt much people saw those one's which I used for Rain Hard seeing how nobody read it. Anyway, first things first. I’m back!!!!
Ha ha. Anyway, since MS don’t have a translator for Terra Formars anymore, I decided to get a chapter out for all 5 of us left reading the series. And since doing this all by myself is too much, I think I’ll just typeset over the raws, not clean ‘em up and be incredibly lazy from now on. That, and my cleaner didn't send me the 2nd half of this chapter cleaned 2 days after he said he would so I just went with what I had. I mean, if someone can't deliver when they say they will, then don't fucking say it. Whatever. Don't care much either way as it's more about reading the series and such. Also, I did the SFX this time and will do so from now on as well. Yippee!  Furthermore, let's hope this is just temporary as MS should get off their asses and actually pump out chapters rather than leaving the series dead in the water after seeing me take away their precious Jew money. Actually, speaking about jew money, I kinda got sacked from my job this Monday so give me every single fucking penny you got, fuckers. Nah. I wouldn't do that, right? Anyway, see ya!

Magic Knight Rayearth DVD Blu-Ray Comparison - Part 2

I actually forgot to mention last time that the BD comparison pics I posted were from a filtered torrent and not the raw BD. Therefore, to help clear things up, here's what the actual BD looks like in comparison to the filtered version. Now, the BD doesn't look very good and while the filtered version does indeed look better in some ways, the lines are far too smudged. However, just as a test, I overlayed the filtered version on top of the raw BD at 50% opacity to gain some kind of middle ground and it seems an improvement. You'll find that pic right at the end. Thoughts?

Magic Knight Rayearth Blu-ray Box Illustrations Gallery

Some artwork and illustrations that were used on CDs, DVDs and such that came with the Blu-ray Box. Compressed them so they were 122mb instead of being 400mb odd. You'll not notice much difference, anyhow. Enjoy. I'll drop a few pics, and download and view online links below. See ya.

Infection: Chapter 4 - Escape Time

So am I still waiting For this world to stop hating Can't find a good reason Can't find hope to believe in Drop dead A bullet to my head Your words are like a gun in hand You can't change the state of the nation We just need some motivation These eyes Have seen no conviction Just lies and more contradiction So tell me what would you say I'd say it's time too late....
Man, I love that song. Anyway, not really liking how the story is going in this manga so sadly I’ve decided to drop it in favor of other things. The first chapter was decent enough but it has slowly started going downhill because I’ve had a look a the raws and it looks kinda shit to be honest. That, it’s weekly and I won’t be able to catch up to the raws like that by myself. However, hopefully some other group will take over and continue, but if not, I’ll still pump out a chapter every now and then for old times sake. At any rate, sorry to burst your bubble but I really want to get back into Terra Formars. That’s where I’m heading next. Anyway, love you and leave you. see ya! Big meaty throbbing zombie cocks of the dead signing off! It was fun while it lasted. See ya!

P.S. - I was actually meant to have this out yesterday but I couldn't be bothered and got sidetracked with a few Rayearth things. The latter was more important. Suck it.

Magic Knight Rayearth Blu-Ray Digital Gallery

Some nice looking art, design stuff and such as an extra on the 7th disc of the blu-ray for the 1st and 2nd season of the anime. I like. Especially Nova, Iczer references and Obari. Ahem. Anyway, if you're a fan of the series then you'll probably want to take a look at these. There's also some storyboards in there including the intros and outros so they'll be worth a look, too. I'll drop a few pics below. Enjoy.

Terra Formars: Revenge - Update

Seems that they've updated some info on the anime's site and a new poster. And I just want to emphasise how much I don't like the new designs. I mean, the animation may look fluid and all but it's far too simple for something like Terra Formars especially knowing the manga designs. At least Linden got 'em right the first time round but it's gone all downhill now. Sheesh. Asimov and Akari have entered JUST mode. I'll drop a few below so you can get a better understanding.
See what I mean? Meh. In any case, if you want to see more, they updated the anime site so check it if you want. Otherwise, compare the below to the above and look at it in disgust. Bye, fuckers.

Magic Knight Rayearth DVD Blu-Ray Comparison

What a terrible cover
Seems that one of my favorite animes of all time recently had BD rips uploaded online. Hee hee. Only took 2 years. It looks great even if it is a filter which is better than nothing. In any case, it does look kinda bad at times but that's due to the drawings not being very detailed in the first place. A good example is the group shot of the villains in the first opening. Their faces are scrunched up so it didn't help when the filters were applied. Food for thought. Also, take note of the now noticeable detail in the cape when it moves in the first OP. It was very faint in the DVD version so I wonder if there's more like that.

Furthermore, the frames seem to have been moved up a little cutting off a small portion of the bottom seen in the DVD version. Worthy to note, but it's not much of a problem. And lastly, the colors are brighter/cleaner making it look much better save for some parts here and there when it is a tad bit too bright. Anyhow, yeah, it is more or less a smudge/DVNR filter but it does actually look better. However, I recommend to watch it from a TV or tablet and not a PC monitor like a pleb because you'll be too close to the screen, you'll notice the filter too much and you'll hurt your back. I approve. Anyway, I'll dump the screenshot comparisons below. They're all from the first episode, FYI. Enjoy. BD is the left and the right is the DVD. See ya!
