And to make matters worse, while the translator did do a decent job overall, he at times summarized heavy heaps of text instead of translating it normally, which again, I had to fix. Granted, he never did this all the time, but it was like 8/10 times when it came to text boxes with heaps of text. However, all said and done, 15 dollarydoos per volume is a decent enough price even considering the state of things. Though, I hope the original commission of JP to French wasn't that high since that was for French to English. Also, a commission of a commission? *barfs*
Anyhow, while I am complaining a lot, I did fix most of the glaring problems with the translation. Though, that's not to say there isn't still some left because I would have had to literally translate the entire thing myself to make sure it was 100% right and I wasn't looking to spend more time than I wanted to on this. Now, other than TL wise, the scans done by randomraws were good, but like usual, people who scan tend to level/clean raws incorrectly which in turn damages image quality. Granted, it wasn't that big of a problem, but people who scan should stick to scanning alone and leave everything else to people who know more of what they're doing.
That said, I hope people enjoyed Gekiman as it was interesting to read and see everything surrounding the development of the manga. However, if you're wondering if I'll do any other Gekiman myself such as the Cutie Honey or Mazinger one, the answer is no. I'm just busy with things at the moment and need to get more of my backlog finished which in reality, is probably going to take about a year given there's multiple manga with multiple volumes I've to scan and then scanlate. As for what they are, they're nothing special but you'll see sooner or later. Lastly, I think I've mentioned this before, but as you probably realised, Saga is still on hold. All said and done, do enjoy the final volume of Gekiman. See ya!
I was just busy with work and stuff so I only got around to posting the volume edition weeks later.
