Gekiman! - Devilman Chapter - #06 [English] [Manga]

That one hit too close to home. Also, Party Grinchers in the house tonight.

Gekiman! - Devilman Chapter - #05 [English] [Manga]

Given that there are six volumes of this and they're all already translated (still to be immensely fixed up and proofread by moi), I want to try and make some progress, so I'll be doing the first volume of this before working on anything else. That, and I'd like to see what people think. Or rather of people, I mean all five people reading this. Anyway, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Tokumu Houkoukan Yumihari - Chapter 14 [English] [Manga]

And now we've reached the end of volume 02 of Yumihari. I'll wait a few days or something and check over the volume to see if everything's fine and dandy to pump out that volume compile, but I'll be working on other things next. Notably, more Armitage The Third and I'll have to make a start on the next volume of Getter Darkness. The latter I'm not too keen on starting since it's rather text heavy at times and my interest has waned. Anyhow, I also have Enchant Land (another Tomizawa work) to work on in future and Gekiman which is a pleasure to work on since all I need to do is typeset and do a little editing on the images. And on that, I do plan to pump out more chapters of it soon seeing how there's like 6 volume of it and it's all translated. Also, on top of all this, there's Jubei volume 03 which should be arriving sooner or later which I'm eager to start on. At any rate, do enjoy the chapter. Bai bai!

Tokumu Houkoukan Yumihari - Chapter 13 [English] [Manga]

Yeap. They're fucked. Anyhow, I ordered the third volume of Jubei a few days ago, so it should arrive in about 3 weeks time. That said, there's only one more chapter left for this volume. And that prayer by the Kappas is a Shinto purification prayer which you can read more of here (Japanese) and here (English) if you're interested. Also, I've been busy with work and other stuff so I haven't had much time to work on things. That said, do enjoy. See ya!

Gekiman! - Devilman Chapter - #01 [English] [Manga]

I was recently asked by wakabayashy (who I've worked with before on some things) to typeset the TL of Gekiman which he paid someone (don't know who) to translate at $15 per volume. However, while that is pretty good (and exceedingly low in contrast to the time and effort required to do such an act), I still have to proofread the script and fix up the wording at bits especially given that there are lines like "my work was a big trouble", "I will continue to protect Miki from demon's hand", and "You always sketch in cafe?" and that there was two untranslated boxes which I had to do myself in the first chapter. Furthermore, while it was kinda cleaned up and levelled already, I still had to level it slightly and attempt to fix the awfully over brightened color pages which I'll give up an example of below.
At any rate, my complaints aside, I'm very grateful that wakabayashy paid some guy to do this because it most likely never would have been scanlated. Not that I blame anyone (myself included) for not taking it on since it's rather boring, text heavy and not interesting for the most part. I mean, anyone would rather work on something else or something with an actual story. That said, do remember that this is a "fictional autobiography" of Devilman's creation and events surrounding it. That's not to say there isn't a fiber of truth to any of this, but let's not say that it's all fact. Anyhow, take what you will from it, but this will be another side project from me as I really need to finish off Yumihari volume 02 and make a start on both Getter Edge and Armitage volume 02. All said and done, do enjoy. See ya!
