Barka da Sallah!


To the Anonymous who had problems with rapidshare, here's a MediaFire link for Otaku no Musume-san: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?n52dd2mncjo

Re: School of Water Business. Not my sort of thing at all, sorry.

Otaku no Musume-san c07

After this I'm going to work on finishing the last 3 chapters of Trickster before doing more OnM.


EDIT: Is Blogspot cutting off the end of the link for anyone? I hate blogger. This is the full link:

Trickster c06

I'm trying to settle into a weekly or bi-weekly release schedule, so enjoy the blitz while it lasts!

Otaku no Musume-san

So I've been reading Otaku no Musume-san to see if I want to do it but...it's kinda lame, isn't it? More than kinda, it really is lame. Are you guys sure you want to read this? If you are, I'll do it but... it's seriously lame.

2 hours later: Okay, I take back what I said. It's not half bad once you get past the first 5 chapters. Alright, I should have the rest of vol 1 translated by tomorrow if all goes well.

I dropped my mouse and it broke like the cheap trash that it is. So no more releases until I buy a new one, probably this weekend.

The Kaiji issue is settled: I'm not going to be working on that because a lot of other people plan to. Instead I'm going to give Otaku no Musume-san the once-over this weekend, see if it's the sort of thing I can work with.

Until then!

Trickster c04

Rapidshare just wouldn't behave tonight, or I'd have upped this earlier. I'll upload a Rapidshare version later. Enjoy!

Oh, that reminds me. I hear some scanslation groups are currently working on Kaiji and planning to release soon. If anyone can confirm/deny this rumour I'd be most grateful. It would save me a lot of time.

Trickster c03

Done with chapter 3. I won't have much time to edit this week so 4 onwards may have to wait for next weekend.

Trickster c02

That's it for chapter 2. Chapter 3 is pretty short so I'll try and get that out by the end of the weekend.

I'm still raw-hunting for most of the other stuff people want to see.

Trickster c01

And chapter 1 is done too. It takes so long to edit and yet reading it takes barely 3 seconds... Editing is a tough job.

I seem to have come down with a cold so I'll resume work on chapter 2 (my personal fave) later this week.

Trickster c00

Trickster Prologue finally done. I'd do chapter 1 tonight as well, but my back hurts. I need a better chair. =_=.

Results from 4chan

After polling /a/ I ended up with the following serious candidates for future scanslation:
Cooking Papa
Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa
Otaku no Musume-san
Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight
Maker Hikoshiki Hatsune Mix
(plus a few other titles I need to investigate more deeply)
As I mentioned yesterday I'm already working on Trickster, and when I'm done with that I have one or two other titles I want to tackle before getting to 4chan's list. That's why I'm anxious to correct any impression I may have left that I'm jumping on Kaiji or any other title right away. Anyone who wants to do any of those titles is more than welcome to do so, just drop me a line so I don't get started.

For Kaiji at least, since I seems to have raised so many hopes, I'm aiming to get the first 13 volumes (first "arc") done. Not going to promise anything more than that.

Trickster translation is going well but I don't see the point in making daily progress reports. I'll make the next blog entry once I'm done editing the prologue and first chapter.

First post

Note: I'm not taking any suggestions any more, so please don't add any

We'll save the introductions for later.

I'm going to post manga links for manga I scanslate here in this here blog. Right now I'm working on Trickster by Aro Hiroshi, which is a little bit funny, a little bit ecchi and a little bit sad (imho).

I've got up to chapter 4 translated, and if all goes well I'll be done with translating the whole thing by tomorrow evening, knock on wood. I can't give an ETA on when the finished product will be ready, but look out for it sometime next week.

I've already got a list of projects I'm going to be working on for a while, but I'll hear requests if you have any. Just don't expect anything.
- Not licensed
- Not being actively scanslated (last release over 6 months ago)
- Not hentai
- Not too much nudity (I'll know it when I see it)
- No guro
- No other gross stuff

I'll be able to better consider the project if you include a link to raws or at least a few sample pages. Stay tuned for more news later.
