Betterman - Chapter 06 - Final [English] [Manga]

Heroes never die
This was a nice end to the manga. It helps convey the message and the ending is not so grim as it is in the anime where they laugh manically like they're infected with Algernon. Here, they actually say a few words, have a message for the future, see that Akamatsu and the crew survived and see the remains of Betterman and a transformation seed because heroes never die. In other news, I checked out a few works by the author who did Getter Robo Darkness and man do I have something to say about that.
Typical page from it
The only one I really want to mention is Spider Sniper Koroshiya. There's violence and lots of sex like every 2 pages, but the entire thing is just so absurdly done that it makes me want to read it. On that, I intend to start translating the first volume soon  Anyway, I'll be checking over the chapters to make sure everything's good and ready for the volume release, so expect that very soon. Enjoy the final chapter. see ya!

Apocrypha Getter Robo Darkness Chapter 12 [English] [Manga]

Jesus. The literal edge this chapter. That aside, it was pretty good. It helps explain a few things like the state of Japan and give an actual proper reason why Hayato was taking on the government unlike in the original where it was pretty badly done. From what I remember, it was like "hurr durr because reasons" where here it's actually understandable why they're doing what they're doing.
Me on the left
Anyway, I'm glad to have this chapter done because it was rather tiring to do, but I've making great progress through the second volume. At any rate, the final Betterman chapter is coming next, and the ending is different from the anime which was nice to see. Look forward to it. Enjoy this chapter. See ya!

Apocrypha Getter Robo Darkness Chapter 11 [English] [Manga]

These guys have the best character designs.
The guy with a beanie who can't even see is my favourite.
Thus starts our flashback chapters for Hayato, and how he and the others first met. It looks alright. Nothing spectacular. Anyhow, i'm guessing this "Hayato's army" is something similar to his student revolt from the original manga which was silly as fuck from what I remember. Enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Betterman - Chapter 05 [English] [Manga]

I ain't redrawing that
There's only one more chapter to go (which I'm going to scan in a minute) and then that'll be me finished the Betterman manga. On Betterman, I'm also doing a new but proper encode of the show, so stay tuned for that soon on the nyaa clones and animebytes. Anyway, after this, I want to progress more into both Hinamizawa Bus Stop and Getter Darkness volume 2. After that, we'll see, but I'll probably start on one of those random manga I've got lying around. Maybe JUST, the yaoi one. Enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Hinamizawa Bus Stop - Chapter 04 [English] [Manga]

Le scary face
And I have no privacy. Woo oooh! I think I'll say it again, I really hate doing redraw. It's time-consuming and annoying when there's no much on the image to use. Meh. In any case, I'm glad to be getting through this as the chapters have like 2-3 times the text volume of a chapter of something else I work on at around the same number of pages. The main reason for that is because they're literally dumping every line from the VN. Anyway, enough of my complaining. Enjoy the chapter. More Betterman coming next! See ya!

Mashira - Chapter 21 [English] [Manga]

That's just awful. He's the class nobody, sits with his head down, gets bullied and nobody talks to him. Those feels. And here was me thinking his life improved after he moved to the city. Give this guy a break, will ya? In any case, I thought Shinobu was like 12 or something, but it seems that she's just very small. Asian genetics, am I right? Ahem. Enjoy the chapter. See ya!

Apocrypha Getter Robo Darkness Chapter 10 [English] [Manga]

That first page was pretty funny. Bombs and missiles flying everywhere yet you still must report the news. Also, yeah, Hayato goes evil for a bit after this. In any case, enjoy the chapter. See ya!
