Omorai-kun Chapter 16 [English] [Manga]


Dude poop lmao. Totally Nagai is the master of comedy. That aside, it was pretty disgusting, but also kinda funny. Anyway, another chapter down. But now, I must get back on Izumo because it's almost done and I'd like to get it all done before starting back on Keiji's spinoff. To add on that, nobody really seems to care about it. Anyway, until next time. See ya!

Mashira - Chapter 14 [English] [Manga]

Ha ha. This chapter was pretty good despite being very short. That monkey's face was priceless. Can't wait for the next one. I also completely forgot about the hunter guys. In any case, I'll start work on the next Omorai chapter as I need to progress through more of that. Meanwhile, enjoy more Mashira. See ya!

Izumo - Flash of a Brave Sword Chapter 08 [English] [Manga]

After that Kyochuu Rettou chapter, I think we all need a break from that sort of thing. So, more Izumo should do. Anyhow, we're nearing the end as there is only a few chapters left to go, so after one more short one, I'll get started on yet another chapter of Omorai.
Call me a fag, but I unironically love this song
And then, hopefully the next Mashira chapter will have come out. Hopefully. Because I really want to see where the story is going with that. In any case, do enjoy this chapter of Izumo. See ya!

Kyochuu Rettou (The Island of Giant Insects) Chapter 20 Part 1 [English] [Manga]

Get ripped in 60 days
Damn. This chapter was really worth the wait. I'm sure the author was just like "know what this manga was missing, hot bug fucking and fanservice". Anyway, do enjoy. Got nothing really to say. See ya!

Terra ForMars Gaiden - Onizuka Keiji - Chapter 1 [English] [Manga]

I recently got digital raws for this spin-off, but after checking it out, it really doesn't look that good. However, I'll do it anyway because I want to see what it's about and I'm sure you guys want to see, too.

Genesis!
On that, the first chapter doesn't look very promising, but it may get better. Everyone's acting out of character and Keiji being a white knight saving a woman from getting raped is so fucking cliche that I literally got triggered. Other than that, it was okay despite the cringe. Enjoy if you can, I guess. See ya! Bug Rape Island coming next!

Izumo - Flash of a Brave Sword Chapter 07 [English] [Manga]

I'll get started on the first chapter of the Keiji Gaiden for Terra ForMars next. There's only about 5 chapters in the volume with each one about 40 pages long, so it'll take a little longer than my regular output speeds for this. In any case, enjoy another mediocre Izumo chapter. It shouldn't be long before I have it all done and can call it a day. See ya!

Izumo - Flash of a Brave Sword Chapter 06 [English] [Manga]

Btw, that new Twin Peaks season was fookin' shite.
I got an e-book version of the Terra Formars Keiji spinoff, so I'll get started on that soon. After all, there's has to be something to tide us over until the series resumes soon. Besides, I like the art. Anyway, another Izumo chapter down. Enjoy. See ya!

Omorai-kun Chapter 15 [English] [Manga]

Go Nagai can be really funny at time and Omorai is absurdly humorous. I mean, despite this manga being literally ancient, it's still very funny which goes to show how well it holds up. However, the same can't be said for many of Nagai's works in last decade or two as he has been very hit and miss.
Don't ask
In any case, Omorai-kun volume 2 looks just a good as the 1st, and next chapter is disgustingly hilarious. You'll see soon, but first, more Izumo because it's not very long and I want to start on Getter Robo Edge volume 2 soon as well. Other than that, enjoy the chapter. See ya!

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!

Sunday, 30 July 2017

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!

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

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!
