Umishi chapter 74

You know, for a world-class salvage master, I'm astonished at the number of things Sawamura has forgotten to check or just assumed in this case. First there was the whole gas leak thing, where he conveniently managed to blame the whole thing on the Coast Guard, and now... Well, you'll see when you read this chapter.

I think this is what is called "Plot Induced Stupidity", where otherwise sensible people do dumb things just to make the manga dramatic.

Umishi chapter 73

When I come across a chapter like this, with extensive redrawing on almost every page, I can't help feeling that the artist has it in for me. Like Takemura was psychic or something and thought "How do I make this really painful for anyone who wants to scanlate this 4 years from now?" Anyway, it took a while but now it's done. Here you go.

No Side chapter 25

The last chapter in volume 3 and then we get to move on. You don't need to know anything about Buddhism or mandalas to understand this chapter, but for the few curious ones, wikipedia is as helpful as ever.

Chapter 25

I just finished translating Umishi vol 8 yesterday, and I'll be done with No Side volume 4 today so I'm feeling pretty good about myself. So good, in fact, that I'll take the rest of the week off. See ya!

Internet problems

I've had Umishi 72 ready for the past week, but my internet connection won't stay stable long enough for me to upload it anywhere. So...yeah. I'll have to make time to go to a cafe this weekend or something.
