Izumo - Flash of a Brave Sword Chapter 02 [English] [Manga]

Just like my Japanese hentai
I was a bit harsh on the 1st chapter of this. It was alright, but the second chapter is an improvement. However, it's like most anime where the first episode is always the worse episode because you've yet to immerse yourself in it among other things. Anyway, despite the generic stuff, this seems that it'll be a decent or read so I do hope that you guys will enjoy it.
Lastly, I do like how this is more based on the VN than the anime because the anime doesn't do the VN justice. The first hentai anime one did since it stayed closer to the source material, but the 2nd Izumo adaption is more generic anime tripe. In any case, that's me for now. See ya!

Omorai-kun Chapter 14 [English] [Manga] Volume 2 Start & General Update

I was going to do the next Izumo chapter, but I really couldn't be bothered so I might as well get started on Omorai volume 2. And man does time fly because it has literally been about 7 months since volume 1. Granted, I have done a bunch other shit during that time, but it seems that I have neglected our lovable beggars for far too long.
Anyway, as I said before, I won't be doing much Nagai in future or taking upon new works of his because I have been concentrating too much on it in the recent year or two, because I want to break free and start on different manga, and because I have a huge-ass backlog of manga to scanlate that I have bought and I might as well list them all for curiosity's sake:
  • JUST!! - A Yaoi Manga (don't ask. got it for cheap)
  • Mazinger Z Anthology (one off)
  • Thunderbolt Fantasy - Otome Genyuuki (maybe)
  • Higurashi Hinamizawa Bus-stop Manga
  • Gun x Sword
  • Betterman
  • Suishou to Velvet
  • Himegimi no Icon
  • Sprinter wa Nemurenai
  • Suzu-chan no Neko
  • Izumo (working on it)
  • Shojo Fujubun
  • Various Go Nagai artbooks/databooks
  • Shit-ton of various anime misc data/interview/artbooks
See what I mean? In other words, before I even consider more Nagai/Dynamic Pro outside of Omorai & Getter Robo Darkness, I need to get a good bit of my backlog done. To add on that, from what I have listed, is anyone interested in any particular work? If you are, then let me know and I'll bump it up the list of things to do. Other than that, enjoy the Omorai chapter. See ya!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 19 Part 2 [English] [Manga]

Yeah. Exactly what it says on the tin. Enjoy.

Izumo - Flash of a Brave Sword Chapter 01 [English] [Manga]

I mentioned this some time ago, but it took me a while to get around to it. Anyway, it's nothing special. I just happened to buy it cheap and thought that I might as well do it. Enjoy this generic trash if you can. Oh, also, I really like the art. It captures the VN's designs rather well. Mostly because somebody who worked on the games did the art. Umm. Bye.

Mashira - Chapter 12 [English] [Manga]

Disdained
Damn, that must have really hurt that monkey. Look at his disdained face for crying out loud. Poor thing. Anyway, this chapter was pretty good, but the hype has really died down since this series began. Not that I'll drop the series or anything, but I just hope that it doesn't turn into absolute trash later on because I'm feeling very uneasy with where the story and things are going.
Anyway, Life is Strange: Before the Storm came out today and it's pretty good. I was a bit uneasy with things leading up to its release, but I'm glad they did a great job with it. Congrats, Deck Nine. Writing, voice acting, and everything is on par with the original for the most par and I have no major problems with the game. I recommend it if you played the first game as I'm sure you'll love it, too. In any case, enough of that. Enjoy the Mashira chapter. See ya!

Mashira - Chapter 11 [English] [Manga]

More talking. Snores. Anyway, I finished Life Is Strange today and despite many problems with the game and final episode and ending, it was still a very enjoyable game to experience. Now, you may be wondering why I am posting about it in a blog post about a manga scanlation. Well, for one, if I tried to do a review, I'd probably end up doing something along the lines of those old Devilman Lady reviews I did ages ago where I wrote an entire book about it.
People actually chose to kill her. WTF?
Anyway, that's us caught up to the latest chapter, but the next one should come out soon, so let's hope something happens. Other than that, I would recommend you to check out Life Is Strange if you haven't already. Enjoy the chapter, I guess. See ya!

Mashira - Chapter 10 [English] [Manga]

Disdained
Sorry for the wait, but I have been busy with work and playing Life is Strange which is a major priority for me because it's pretty darn good. I remember being turned off by it when it first came out, but I should have given it a chance instead of judging it as a "tumblr game" if that makes any sense to y'all. Anyway, enough of that. Back to the topic at hand.
Now, there was a good bit of text this chapter and it is the same for the next one, too. There's no real action as there's lots of talking and discussion about what's to be done next, but things should pick up after that. Also, that giant ass monkey at the end just looks dumb, and I'm really hoping that this doesn't take a dive in quality. Fuck. Why did I have to jinx the manga? Umm. Enjoy. Bye, Lynch-kins!

Futari wa PreCure Chapter 7 [English] [Manga]

Pic unrelated
Sorry for being such a slow ass motherfucker at doing this. Yeah, 3 months later for 4 pages is pretty bad, but I will actually finish it this year. Anyway, I'll make sure not to have the next chapter 3 months away again, but this is a side project so don't expect it anytime soon since the next chapter is 12 pages. Other than that, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Magic Knight Rayearth OVA Encode Comparison

Here's a few images showing a image quality comparison between my recent encode and the old anime-takeover release. First off, they encoded from the american DVDs if I remember correctly while I did so from the Japanese DVDs which is the main reason why mine looks much better. Well, that and they softened the image with filters to make the file size smaller and whatnot. Anyhow, these are the same frames, but either they cropped it or the English release was just like that. Probably the latter. And you can see the images below. Nothing else to say. See ya!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 19 Part 1 [English] [Manga]

There is a lot of talking this chapter and most of it will probably go over your head, but I'm sure something will happen next chapter when they attempt their plan. Also, if you're wondering about the pic used on my credits page, that's one of the two fanart images on pixiv at the moment with the other being another preggers image.
Really makes you think. Anyway, this chapter was not very entertaining mostly due to the talking, but enjoy it if you can. See ya in a month when the next one comes out!

Mashira - Chapter 09 [English] [Manga]

Shit is getting real. And we get to see more of crazy Michiru next chapter, too. But before that, I've got to do the next Bug Island chapter, and there's a good bit of text in it, too. In other news, I've been getting through more of my side video projects in recent weeks and it won't be long until I'm clear of them and can kiss them goodbye. Anyway, see ya! Enjoy the chapter!

Mashira - Chapter 08 [English] [Manga]

Ooooh. Based hunters giving exposition. And yeah, for all of you who did not know, regular monkeys are not the type of apes that are found in Japan, but the monkeys imaged below so something mysterious is going on here. But what? Hmm. I'm unsure if I'm gonna like the reveal later on or not. Probably something stupid.
Also, we are almost caught up to the moist recent chapter as we are now only 2 more away so it should not take long to get there. Things get more complicated as you will see next chapter. I really wonder what really is going on, though. Hinamizawa something, I presume. Anyway, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Saturday, 22 July 2017

Mashira - Chapter 07 [English] [Manga]

Shit is going down and that punch must have really hurt. Really excited for the next chapter, and I'm sure you are, too. But they are hinting are certain things and I'm very curious to find out. Also, any mistakes or things to improve upon, I will do when I come to compile the 1st volume as stuff like redraw are second to getting the chapter out quickly.
Anyway, summer rain aside, I've got a bunch of anime video encoding and such projects lined up so that'll take some time away from my manga things as there's a shit-ton of Mazinger to catch up on, and then there's the Evangelion TV broadcast that I've recently gotten myself into. In any case, things should be much the same as I'll always have some regularly out. See ya! Hope you enjoyed the chapter.

Thursday, 20 July 2017

Mashira - Chapter 06 [English] [Manga]

I have been dodging them both for some time with other projects, but sooner or later, I've got to get back on Omorai volume 2 and Getter Robo Edge volume 2 as well. When I catch up to the Mashira raws, I'll be able to have some time to work on either or both at the same time as it is released every fortnight which will give me time in-between working on the various other things I've got lined up.
Anyway, on a side note, I saw that new Planet of the Apes movie in cinema today and it was fooking shite. That is all. In any case, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Mashira - Chapter 05 [English] [Manga]

CHICKEN DIPPERS! Ah. Feels good to get that out of my system. Anyway, I'm liking Mashira lot so far, and it was really horrifying to find out what Iori's trauma actually was. I mean, like damn. In any case, this chapter was good, and there's plenty more monkey madness on its way. See ya!

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 18 Part 2 [English] [Manga]

And the next bug fucker island chapter is here for y'all to enjoy. Yeap. Except this time there's a fuckton of talking and less action/stuff going on, but the info is interesting and worthwhile to note. Anyhow, I'm really wondering how the fuck they're gonna take down this centipede, and what worse bugs that are yet to come out.
I mean, can it get any worse than that huge ass centipede? Only time will tell. Sheesh. In any case, I'll be getting right back on Mashira now so expect more monkey trouble very soon. Enjoy this chapter! Bye y'all!

Devilman 1972 Blu-Ray Raw & 720p Encode Comparison

The Devilman BD wasn't very good (naturally the video quality isn't going to be the same due to file size and the like), but just to let people see that for themselves and to better understand why I put it in 720p, I took a few pics from the raw files and my encode of the show. Now, they are as below, and I left them in their original dimensions and in png for best judging. Felt like doing this as I still had the raw files on my computer and wanted to get rid of them to free up space. In any case, do enjoy. See ya!






Mashira - Chapter 04 [English] [Manga]

Literally me
Wanted to get the last Terra ForMars chapter done before doing more of this even though I did say I'd do this first before. Anyway, more people die and things are only starting. More monkey madness coming soon. See ya!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #40 (Chapter 213) English

And now, we have finally reached the end... And now, we must wait until the series resume later this year. Will there be a time-skip or will it pick up where we left off? There's so much shit that need to be resolved, but only time will tell. We will have to wait. Are you excited as I am? Maybe. In any case, it's been a pleasure translating the series even if interest has been at an all time low, but I appreciate those who still read the series and I just wanted to give a big shout-out to you all. Thanks.
Anyway, the raws were good quality this time so it made for a better send-off. However, I'd like to hear news about the series soon as I want to know that it is definitely resuming later this year and perhaps some details about what will happen, too. Because if this is how it ends, then I'm gonna tear my hair out. Anyway, I'm kinda a pessimistic person, but the series should resume later this year and we'll be happy. Lastly, I know I said that I would only catch us and then drop the series (which I've done multiple times), but I'll come back to work on the series when it does resume. Just, FYI. Anyway, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Terra ForMars - A New Chapter - #39 (Chapter 212) English

Sorry for the gay shit at the end, but I only use the meme magic when it's available. In other words, when a new image comes out on pixiv. Anyway, aside from that really gay fucking disgusting shit, there's only one more chapter to go, so we'll soon see what they left us hanging with. Song pun not intended. Okay. Kinda.
Anyway, I'll be getting back to Mashira next, but I'll get started on the next TF chapter after a few just to get it over with. In any case, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Mashira - Chapter 03 [English] [Manga]

Yeah, the horror is monkeys, and fuck they're creepy. Anyway, this was a short, yet horrifying chapter, but I'll be working on Terra ForMars next since that needs done and I've put it off long enough. Though, the world has completely forgotten about it and it's like me and a few others are the only ones who still care.
Anyway, enough of my rambling. Enjoy the chapter. I'll get right on the next TF chapter. Looking forward to what happens in these last chapters before it starts back up later this year. Should be soon. See ya next time! Bye!

Friday, 23 June 2017

Mashira - Chapter 02 [English] [Manga]

Here is the 2nd chapter and while not much happens, don't you worry because next chapter it begins and it is gruesome. Just wait. You'll see soon enough. Anyhow, seems I've another video project in the works (more Mazinger to be specific), but I'll only be encoding to allow myself some time to work on manga and then I'll get started on subbing that and whatnot. Just FYI.
In any case, enjoy the chapter and I should have the next one out soon/in the coming days. See ya! Also, yeah, epic reddit joke at the end.

Mashira - Chapter 01 [English] [Manga]

I've been working on a bunch of video and encoding projects recently and they really took away from my manga time. However, I'm all done with that stuff for the moment, so I've been able to get back at manga, and now I've something new to bring to you... Mashira. It's a horror manga by Uchimizu Tooru that started this year and it looks pretty good. Here's a short description I wrote:
After 12 long years, a white-haired boy by the name of Iori comes back to Mashira village, the place where his childhood trauma began, only to find yet another horror awaiting him.
Now, I didn't want to spoil people with what happens or what the horror is, so you'll have to wait and see, but you'll be able to tell from the first chapter and the cover what he's gonna be up against, and man, are they creepy. Anyhow, expect more soon. I hope you enjoy it. See ya!

Mardock Scramble The First Compression Pamphlet [Artbook] [RAW SCAN]

Bought and scanned this myself. Got it for cheap as chips, too. Anyway, if you for one liked the movies like me, then you might want to check this out. Also, not many people like the movies, but I found them to be pretty darn good. People said the 2nd one was just weird ("gay dolphin lmao xd" they probably thought) and the 3rd is just gambling scenes even though it was crucial to the plot and kept you entertained.

My guess is that it was based on expectations from the first movie and the like, but what I say is judge a movie for what it is and not what you want it to be. Anyhow, the book itself is also pretty good and the movies follow them quite well, but that's my ramblings over... for now. Enjoy the artbook. See ya!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 18 Part 1 [English] [Manga]

Man, that thing is nasty. Judging by its legs alone last chapter, I knew it would be big, but not THAT big. Fuck. How the heck are they gonna kill that thing? Let's hope they can use the cannon, but I'm guessing that somebody is gonna die when they try getting to it. Yikes.
Anyway, this chapter was short, but it was action packed and very enjoyable. Early anticipating the next one, and I hope you are, too. See ya next time! Bai bai!

Kikkai vs Omorai [English] [Manga]

This too longer than I thought it would, but at least it's done now. It was a fun little cross-over. In any case, this was from one of those art/info books I scanned this year at the end for some reason so it doesn't exactly have a cover. Kikkai is also funny. He series seems funny, but the raws aren't very hot.
Anyway, oddly, half of this was 4 pages crammed on 1 page and the rest were on their own single pages, so I kinda had to topaz those pages to make them look better since the looked kinda rough. Inj any case, enjoy! See ya! The normal version will be coming soon for those who prefer it that way!
