Devilman Saga Volume 04 Chapter 31 [English] [Manga]

Only three more chapters to go, and that's the end of this volume. However, the action start next one, so it should be good. Anyhow, given that I'm nearing the end of this volume, that my friend hasn't scanned volume 5 (not that I've asked him yet, but I will so I'll have it in advance), and that I've been going through Saga at a quick pace, I'll be starting on those two Tomizawa manga possibly before or after I finish this volume. I've been meaning to work on both, but when you've got a bunch of things to do, you gotta take one thing at a time. At any rate, I also need to scan and work on more Blue Gender as I want to get that out of the way and over and done with, and I've also started typesetting that last Maho chapter from its first volume. There's a ton of text in it for a kid's manga, so it'll take a while given that I'm working on it on the side, and then start on the final Kirakira chapter. Now, all said and done, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Devilman Saga Volume 04 Chapter 29 [English] [Manga]

I'm gonna have to scratch my head on this one. So, they're saying that Yuki's just a face that Amon brings out and that he's the one who's actually in control? Well, I'm interested in seeing where they go with this. Anyhow, shit starts to go down next chapter, but on Devilman stuff, Seven Seas recently released Devilman Classic Collection Volume 1, and despite the fact that I pre-ordered it from a UK retailer, I got a message a week after its UK release saying "hurr durr we're out of stock" which really pissed me off because it's out of stock everywhere now. Guess I'll just have to play the waiting game. Sigh.
Don't ask
At any rate, my complaints aside, I can honestly picture that if they wanted to make an American Devilman movie, that they'd choose Saga and get Michael Bay to do it all transformers style with these Demon Armour things since they do appear somewhat robotic. Granted, I actually wouldn't mind that as I do unironically enjoy the Transformer's movies. Hope I didn't give you nightmares there. Umm. Enjoy the chapter. Bai bai!

Devilman Saga Volume 04 Chapter 28 [English] [Manga]

The minor banter between the characters this chapter was kinda funny, but I'm looking for more Kaisaka moments in this. /ourguy/ isn't getting anywhere with Shiranui, is he? On her, I checked out the raws for a few volumes ahead to see what happens, and right at the end of volume 6, it teases us with a bunch of black and white guys attempting to gangrape her at a pool. Classy Nagai.
Way to end a volume, eh? Well, I really don't hope THAT actually happens, but knowing Nagai, I wouldn't put it past him. I really don't want Lady all over again where rape was breakfast, lunch and dinner for all the characters. Anyhow, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Blue Gender - Chapter 03 [English] [Manga]

Took me a while to get this done since I was working on anime encoding stuff as well as taking pics of those Devilman books the past few days. Anyhow, I remember saying this was a two-parted, but it's a three-parted. That aside, do enjoy. More Saga coming next. See ya!

Devilman PS1 Videogame Strategy Guide (Pictures)

Okay, I really need to learn how to focus a camera and take pictures in the daytime because the image quality is way better if one does that. However, I just wanted to get this out of the way and off my bucket list. Anyhow, there's way more pics in this than the previous book for the live action movie I did, but that's understandable considering it's to help play the game.
At any rate, generic strategy guide stuff aside, there's a toy section at the end, a peak at the Amon anime, and an interview with Nagai himself. And lastly, there's no point uploading the original images this time. Especially given the quality. However, I'll be sure to snappity snap snap in the day whenever I do something else. Enjoy, I guess. Bai bai!

Devilman Live Action Official Perfect Bible (Pictures)

I had been meaning to do scan this eventually (given that I bought it over a year ago IIRC), but due to how long it would take, me not wanting to take the book apart (since I had to buy it), my scanner also not being big enough to do double pages of a book that size, and various other things, I thought about taking pictures with my good Nikon Camera instead. However, even then, I only got around to doing it now many months after I thought about it due to being reminded a few times by someone on tumblr.
Uncle Go himself
Anyhow, I'm not a camera guy, so I left the settings on the camera from what my brother had it at, but the image quality isn't the best. It's doable, but it looks rather ugly. If I ever take pics of something again, I'll be sure to fiddle around so that it'll turn out way better. That, and try to take pictures not in an angle. For this, I was literally leaning over a bed and had to place one of my many Sports Direct mugs on pages here and there to hold the pages down.
The Amon manga designs
were like H.R. Giger's Devilman
At any rate, the images were like 10mb each and that's too big for me, so I compressed them, but they're more or less the same even at a quarter of the original size. Also, I did a quick perspective warp version which is smaller and you may want to check that one out instead for a quick look. And lastly, you're probably wondering what this even is. Well, it's an information/data book for the Devilman Live Action. It's got plenty of staff and actor interviews, plenty of design/making of stuff and a bunch of pictures. And I just want to say that I'm fucking glad to get this off my bucket list. Check it out if you're interested. Bai bai!
