Neon Genesis Evangelion Chronicle Issues 21-30

Now, the final post. First, let me tell you where I found these scans. It was off a foreign Evangelion community site naturally, specifically the Russians (Evangelion not end), who in turn got them off the Chinese, I think. Anyhow, there is also 20 more issues (JP Wikipedia source) of Evangelion Chronicle that were printed after the original 30, which sadly have no scans. They also further reprinted the original 30 as new editions, which again, sadly have no scans. Hmm, what a bummer. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the scans!

Neon Genesis Evangelion Chronicle Issues 11-20

Here's Chronicle issues 11-20. If you're wondering why I don't just put them all in one post, I have a reason. It would look really ugly having all 30 issue links in a column, that's really it. Anyhow, you're here for the content so get to it, you'll find the DL links below. Have fun!

Neon Genesis Evangelion Chronicle Issues 1-10

I was actually meant to post this months ago, but I sorta forgot and also couldn't remember my Mega password after I already uploaded everything. Poor me, but I always back everything up so I uploaded the Chronicle to my mediafire account. Not that anyone cares about any of this, you're just here for the DL content. That said, you'll find links for Chronicle magazines 1-10 below. Have fun!

Higurashi no Naku Koro no Hou English Translation 1.0

Okay, I have finally finished my translation of Higurashi no Naku Koro no Hou. Yippee! Now I can move onto something new! Probably the two untranslated Rei arcs or a (or some) Matsuri/Kizuna exclusive arc, I'll decide that soon enough. Anyway, like last time, I have prepared two versions. One with a few untranslated JP words (Onee, Oji-san, nakama etc) here and there, and another version that has those specific words translated into English, which I call the English variation patch for some reason. I'm not very good with names. If you want to see the full list of the untranslated JP words, you can check out the document below.

That said, I'm very satisfied with the overall outcome. I have put a ton of effort and work into it and I hope it shows. It went through many proofreads and fixing up, some of which was done by a helper or two. Although I still had to implement said fixing up, just saying. Anyhow, I will drop the credits for those people at the bottom. Also, even if you yourself spot any errors, please inform me so I can implement changes and fix it up. I'm not perfect, so I may have missed some things.

Now, what everyone is waiting for, if anyone bothered to even read what I just wrote that is. The download, you will find both versions up for download below. So, go get that and get reading. Hou was recently released after all, and I really want to know what people think of its story. Personally, I found Outbreak to be the most interesting, followed by Hinamizawa Bus stop and then Kamikanshi-hen. It was very entertaining and the music was great, its also significantly better than its anime adaptation, Bus Stop was new (to me) and was thus interesting, the characters were different and so was the story, while Kamikanshi-hen wasn't quite what I expected. Its just not the proper sendoff or "Gift" I expected for Higurashi's deathbed. I know more Higurashi is coming out, but not from Ryukishi07. He washed his hands long ago and has since then moved on, sad yes, but that's reality, or at least I hope not. Anyway, I'll stop myself before I run my mouth, you'll find the downloads below. Have fun!

English Translation 1.0 DL Links

xPearse (Me) - Near enough everything (No need for specifics)
TheGuraGuraMan - Hou Title (Which I later had to color correct)
einhorn303 - Proper use of your and you're (I understand now though, no more silly mistakes)
IchibanOjousama - Spelling mistakes and such

Spanish translators "23rd District" contacted me shortly after my previous released and asked if they translate my translation into Spanish. Naturally I said yes, so it seems the Spanish community will also get Hou some time in the future. Yay!

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai Blu-ray DVD comparison part 2

Another comparison, yay! And yes, I did pick silly images on purpose. Anyway, I got busy and kinda forgot about a part 2 but it's here now, and I'll add a download for last time as well as for this batch. More is always better though, as you'll be able to compare more to what the original release was like. So, see images below.


Turns out they were all Jedi force ghosts

The most exciting screenshot of all time

The faggot himself

As you may have noticed, it indeed does look better, but once you inspect the images a little closer, the lines are rather edgy. Although, it probably won't be as noticeable when you actually watch it on a TV.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou English Translation 0.9 Christmas Release

Well, I've decided to make an early release for Christmas, my gift to you. Anyway, just FYI for those who don't know already, this has been totally machine translated by myself, I hope that won't be people off, as I have put alot of effort into it. Using infoseek, reading the sentences phonetically, and using an online dictionary to make things more accurate so it was not sloppily done. Anyway, now that I've got that out of the way, it's mostly complete, albeit only the main credit's listing (You'll see why), a few images with JP text in the background, and the games extra's which are mostly the staff room and back staff room are untranslated at this point, but everything else is so you shouldn't have a problem. And, I should have the rest done and complete sooner or later, maybe before or after the new years, although that depends. But, I know you want to stop reading so here's the download and how to play. Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy my translation.

How to play
Dump all files into the games directory and overwrite when promoted.
Then use onscripter to play the translation with the default font, otherwise the game will crash. Simple.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai Blu-ray DVD comparison part 1

The raw's, or 720p download for Kai was uploaded not long ago. So that means another comparison, and again, I'll do two parts as I'm lazy and can't be bothered doing it all in one day. Anyhow, I'll drop the images below. From episodes 1 and 2.

Now, you'll instantly notice it is again an upscale. But a good one at least, although I expected a 1080p release. Darn you DEEN, can't you do anything right. Anyhow, the blurriness that was present over Kai is mostly gone, so it indeed looks much better. Check out Chie for a better view of what I mean. Also, the video itself seems to be slightly cropped at times, for some reason. Although that mostly goes unnoticed. Overall, like before, a slight improvement but definitely not worth the money it costs to buy. Then again, Blu-rays are always a very high in price in Japan. But! You shouldn't let any of this stop you from enjoying either season 1 or season 2/Kai on Blu-ray. That said, thanks again for checking out my comparison.
