Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #8 English (Chapter 181)

Another one bites the dust. Hey! Another one bites the dust. Anyhow, another one down and thank fuck they're out of the waterway. And who's droopy at the end? She did appear in the background before, but we better have answers soon. Other than that, enjoy the chapter and I'll see you next time! Bye!

Great Mazinger: Volume 2 - Chapter 7 Part 1 English

Okay, I'm going to split this chapter into 2 as it is about 80 pages long and that's hell too much for me for one release. Not that it matters. The chapters are mini-chapters crammed into one as you may notice. Anyway, some of the lines were a bit odd and rough so I ran them by a friend and she didn't come up with anything amazing so I do apologize for the lines that may read a bit funky. Other than that, my back fucking aches after typesetting this chapter today so I don't have anything else to say other than I hope you enjoy the chapter and I'll see you next time! Bye!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 12 - Part 2 English Translation

Over a month later and it finally came out. Was starting to think maybe the writer axed the series or something. I'd really hate for that to happen. Anyway, got right on this and got it out. Heh heh. Wanted to see what happens next myself, but this is most likely the end of the 3rd volume, I think. Also, I was going to go for "Island of the Giant Eight Legged Freaks" for the credits page but another rape remark sounds better. Hope that doesn't say something about me, but hey, not like I care. Ahem. In any case, it'll probably be another month before the Japanese release another chapter of this and man I hate the wait. I mean, it's only 18 pages and to wait a month for that is just sad. I'd prefer a fortnightly release and I'm sure the creators can keep up with that. But, sadly, it'll stay monthly. Sigh. Meh. Enjoy the chapter and I'll see you next time on Island of the Giant Rape Spiders!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #7 English (Chapter 180)

Who has to know. When we live such fragile lives. It's the best way we survive. I go around a time or two. Just to waste my time with you. Tell me all that you've thrown away. Find out games you don't wanna play. You are the only one that needs to know. I'll keep you my dirty little secret. (Dirty little secret) Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret. (Just another regret, hope that you can keep it) My dirty little secret.
Man I love that color page. Ahem. Anyhow, this didn't take long but I'm not exactly liking where this is going. I mean, Akari was already overpowered but now he can "add" other peoples abilities to himself and they're researching the same for other power holders? Now that's just going too far. I don't like this idea at all. Meh. In any case, seems that I'll be getting commissioned to translate another doujinshi soon. Yippee! More material for credits pages. And that's all I've got to say. See ya next time!

Terra ForMars Gaiden: Asimov Chapter 1 English v1.5

Glad to have this done. Wanted to see what Asimov's spinoff was like myself. And, though it is good and while the art is well drawn it can be a bit jarring at times. In any case, I got kinda bummed out on Vuwaku Evuzenko (Asimov's war-time partner). I searched the net (in Japanese) and such and it didn't exactly come up any actual names so I believe that it may be made up. If it wasn't, it would have appeared wiki pages or places on the net but it didn't. It only appeared on places talking about this spin-off. Also, the Russian title didn't exactly come with anything, either. I tried searching as well but couldn't find its meaning so I left it. Other than that, it seems this will be about Asimov fighting a friend from the past. I mean, didn't they already do that in Rain Hard? Hmph. Whatever. It just better be good. Anyhow, that's all I've got to say. Hope you enjoy the chapter. Bye!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #6 English (Chapter 179)

They protect!!!
The planet where they were born!!!
And the land where they grew up!!!
I wake up every evening, with a big smile on my face, and it never feels out of place. And you're still probably working, at a nine to five pace. I wonder how bad that tastes. When you see my face hope it gives you hell hope it gives you hell. When you walk my way hope it gives you hell hope it gives you hell. Now where's your picket fence love, and where's that shiny car. And did it ever get you far. You never seemed so tense love. I've never seen you fall so hard. Do you know where you are? And truth be told I miss you. And truth be told I'm lying!!! When you see my face hope it gives you hell hope it gives you hell!!!
Jam away, people! Ahem. Anyway, another chapter out of the way and it was sad to see that Akari's foster parent did actually die as it did already hint at before in a previous chapter. Hope we get to see how. But, we all know he'll continue to appear in flashbacks, I presume. Other than that, I haven't got anything else to say other than I'll be doing the 1st chapter of Asimov's spinoff next. Expect that sometime next week hopefully. In any case, I'll see you next time. See ya!

Neo Devilman: Volume 2 Compile (English Translation)

Yippee! That's all of Neo Devilman now complete and collected together. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you all thank the three groups (including myself) involved for translating the series. It wouldn't be here today without us. Thank you, and I'll see you next time. Bye!

Neo Devilman: Volume 2 Chapter 3 English Translation

Kyahoooo! Glad to have this done because it also means that Neo Devilman has now been completely scanlated. Yippee! Anyway, this chapter was pretty darn good. I enjoyed it very much overall. Nagai always has that charm and flair present in his works. May that be goofy or not, it's for the most part near enough always enjoyable in some shape or form. In that regard, Go Nagai apparently thinks Hell has bars, biker-gangs, and even a downtown area. That alone gave me a great big chuckle. I mean, do they also have hell vineyards & brewery's to get their booze, hell hotels, hell casinos, hell toilets, hell nightclubs and the like? It's ridiculous and stupid but very funny. But enough of that, the chapter itself is entertaining and even features that teenage chick from Lady Devilman. However, it is a bit odd how as she mentions events from Lady which brings in the whole loop thing. In any case, I'll compile Volume 2 of Neo Devilman later on today and get it uploaded. Then, I think I'll hit back on Terra ForMars for a chapter. Until then, see ya! Rare Nagai signing off!

Final Word on Infection (Manga by Toru Oikawa)

Hmm. I know I said that I would get another chapter of this out some time ago and even put it on my schedule about a month ago, but to be honest, I really don't fucking want to. I mean, there's honestly no point at all wasting my time doing 1 chapter when I honestly could just work on something more meaningful and something that I enjoy instead, and for one thing finish eventually. That's why I don't plan to continue this series at all, in future or at any stage. You probably already guessed that, but I just wanted to have an official post to let those interested know. However, the actual only way to get me to continue will be by commission. Yeah yeah, I know, but there has to be something in it for me if it's for something that I don't enjoy or really don't want to do. It's that simple. If you want to commission me, I will do it and right away. Not that I actually expect anyone to do that, but it is an option if you really want to read more. Anyway, I hope you guys understand. Umm, bye.

Terra ForMars Volume 13 Compile

Okay, I'm too lazy to actually go over this volume so I just compiled all the chapters together into a zip. Not that it really matters. This is just for archiving purposes for myself, and for you, too, obviously. But, if you want quality, then please go buy the VIZ release and support them. Umm, bye.

Terra ForMars Volume 12 Compile

Okay, I'm too lazy to actually go over this volume or the 13th for that matter so I just compiled all the chapters together into a zip. Not that it really matters. This is just for archiving purposes for myself, and for you, too, obviously. But, if you want quality, then please go buy the VIZ release and support them. Umm, bye.

Higurashi Live Action TV Show Details & Update

How do you like your Higurashi? JUST fuck my shit up, fam
Man, have I been out of the loop. Never realized this had a twitter, a website (with lots of information and pics may I add), or what they were adapting 'till now when it was posted about a month ago. Sheesh. Anyway, they're only adapting the first 3 arcs, Onikakushi-hen, Watanagashi-hen and Tatarigoroshi-hen. But hey, that is better than nothing. And they might adapt the rest is things go well, I guess.
And while the sets may look decent, the actors (mostly just the club) look kinda odd and older than what they're meant to be playing, and the costumes look like cosplay. Eew. I hate that type of fabric. It looks awful. And take a gander at Hanyu on the main image above, looks like somebody's got their hand shoved up her ass. That, or she really really really doesn't want to be there. And Takano, her smiling is off. MORE SOFTER!! Gah!!! Anyway, kinda excited for this. More Higurashi is always welcome. Satoko and Mion looks the best out of them all. I like their hair. And Tomitake doesn't look too bad, either. Should have placed his hat on him for that pic. What were they thinking? Anyway, everyone else just looks... well, stupid to be honest. They couldn't even get Teppei right. He's meant to be a brute, not some fat slob. But, one can be a brute and a fat slob so it could work. We'll have to wait and see. So, until then, see ya!
Belly's gonna get ya, belly's gonna get ya!

Neo Devilman: Volume 3 Compile (English Translation)

Since I haven't done the final chapter in volume 2 yet, I might as well skip ahead to volume 3 for the moment. Anyhow, again, same things as before. Color pages not leveled correctly, and piss stains not removed. However, I want to complete collection to be presented the best it can so I fixed them up a little. Nobody should be bothered. It's an improvement over how they were like before. Anyway, nothing else to say. Hope you enjoy the volume, and I'll see you next time. See ya!

Neo Devilman: Volume 1 Compile (English Translation)

Since nobody else bothered to get up off their asses and compile all released chapters together, I might as well get off my ass and do it. In any case, when I checked over the chapters done by the other group I noticed that the color pages were not leveled or filtered correctly so I decided to tweak them a little myself. Now, that is mostly due to that grayish look over scanned color pages but it seems Get Got Translations never bothered to level the images at all for the most part. Pure laziness. Took me under a minute to fix each color page, and also remove the piss stains they never bothered to remove either. Again, 10 fucking seconds in Photoshop. Ugh. That aside, I also removed all credit pages and placed just one at the end for simplicity sake. And that's all I really want to say. Enjoy these Devilman short stories and I'll see you next time. Bye!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #4 English (Chapter 177)

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me, I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed. She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb, in the shape of an "L" on her forehead. Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming, fed to the rules and I hit the ground running. Didn't make sense not to live for fun, your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb. So much to do, so much to see, so what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go. You'll never shine if you don't glow!
Now that I got a Great Mazinger chapter out of the way, now I can resume work on Terra ForMars. Yippee! I wonder where the series is heading with the current plot. Hopefully more things do happen in the coming chapters as I really don't want them to be in that underground waterway for like 10 fucking more chapters. Hmph. In any case, I hope you enjoy the chapter and I'll see you next time. Bye! Smash Mouth signing off!

Great Mazinger: Volume 2 - Chapter 6 English

Phew, finally got around to this. Wanted to work on it ever since I read the first volume but at the time and like most of the time, I am constantly busy. In any case, it's here now so the likes of that guy on /m/ can stop bitching. However, like I said above, I am constantly busy so sadly this will not be a main project for me but a side project like Neo Devilman. In other words, expect the next chapter about a month or so from now. Though that may depend. Anyhow, hope you enjoy the chapter and I'll see you next time. Bye!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #3 English (Chapter 176)

Storming through the party like my name was El ninio. When I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El Camino. As a kid, I was a skid and no one knew me by name. I trashed my own house party cause no body came. I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school. Never going, never showing up when we had to, attention that we crave don't tell us to behave, I'm sick of always hearing act your age. I don't want to waste my time become another casualty of society. I'll never fall in line. Become another victim of your conformity. And back down. Because you don't Know us at all we laugh when old people fall. But what would you expect with a conscience so small. Heavy metal and mullets it's how we were raised. Maiden and priest were the gods that we praised Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and, Cutting people down is just a minor offence then, It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn. I'm sick of being told to wait my turn. I don't want to waste my time become another casualty of society.
Ahem. Enough of that. I knew I said I was going to put them out at a slower pace, but I figured that I'd get another chapter out before working on another series since they're only 18 pages with a medium level of text. Infection on the other hand, a fuck-ton of text. Ugh. That'll be a nightmare. But, I think I'll work on Great Mazinger first instead and stall Infection another week. I want to work on it, but there is a fuck-ton of text per page in comparison to anything else I've worked on and that's really annoying. In any case, unsure about Saito's forname as the fucking scans are cut close taking away some of the image on every goddamn page including the one with his forename which had (if it had any) the ateji for the true reading of the characters. Meh. Who cares, anyway. Enjoy the chapter.
