Umishi chapter 63

If you're ever at sea in Japan and you run into trouble, don't call Tokkyuu! They'll just sit around in their ship/helicopter and throw dumb ideas around while you suffer down below in your ship. Pfft, and they call themselves a "Special Rescue Team". Bunch of amateurs!

Umishi chapter 62, and No Side

It's been a while, huh? Hang in there, guys, the end of March is just around the corner, and then we'll have regular releases again (knock wood). IMO an arc hasn't really started until someone gets into the water, so as of this chapter, the LPG rescue arc has officially begun! Go, Sawa, go! And that other guy too.

Umishi chapter 62

Now, about No Side. I mentioned years ago that I might be interested in doing No Side at some point. Now that jfgslo has found raws, I can get started what I want to say, but given how busy I am and how bad the raws are, I can't do both translation and editing by myself. The plan for now is to get two or three chapters translated by the end of January and then hunt for an editor skilled at handling double-page spreads to do all the dirty work. [At this point someone's going to suggest I do the same for Umishi. And I'm going to shoot that person. DON'T TAKE AWAY MY ONLY PLEASURE!]

Ideally I'd like the raws to be at least 1200 high, but a deal is a deal so we'll see what we can do.

Umishi chapter 61

I love how everybody in the manga instantly knows the destructive power of 1800m3 of LPG, it's so crazy. OMG, it's like a nuclear bomb! OMG! Do they go walking around town sizing up gas tanks and randomly measuring destructive powers or what? How do they know this stuff!?

Rapidshare is completely unusable now, so I'm trying something else. Let me know how it works out.

Shojo manga?

Now that my Christmas break is over (SOB SOB, WAAAH), I'm starting to work on manga again, so Umishi should be out in a few days. I'm getting a craving for a short shojo series again, but you know what's stopping me? Strangely enough, it's fonts. It always takes me forever to think of what fonts to use for a new manga, and then shojo manga have like 3 or 4 fonts on every single page, it's hell switching back and forth. Working on "To Be" was fun though. So maybe...

Well, it's not like I've got a handle on the Umishi situation yet anyway, so I'll focus on that till my real-life situation eases up (God willing) in March.

Happy New Year!!
