The chase continues! I can also hear the curtains closing. Tune in on Monday for the grand finale!
It’s the final stretch, folks! We only have three parts left, and this is one of them. The end is nigh!
The WWW H-Mercenaries are at it again. Doing some hot Yuzuki N Dash shit because it’s Yuzuki N Dash.
Before you complain “MUH IMMERSION” about leaving ‘AHHs” and ‘NNNNs’ out, take a moment to think about just what the fuck you are complaining about. Thank you.
Puchimasu TL: And as expected, this page gets me off the most <Page# Here>
Puchimasu TL: Meaningful relationships is my fetish
Meiru: You sick fuck.
Edit: There were balloons left without text. This is entirely Puchi’s fault. I updated the MF link.
[21:28:47] Meiru: Is it fine, do we need to bother with QC
[21:29:18] Meiru: People are just going to feel fap. I’m not sure what to do.
[21:29:24] Puchimasu TL: It’s fine, it’s fine
After a good 7-8 hour marathon through this, it’s finally done. What a hefty chapter it ended up being. dusthillguy’s been working on redraws since yesterday but they proved to be plenty, so I offered to do the last few myself. It was tedious, and I ended up playing a game with my friends, but I got it done. [Here]
Which brings us to the announcements, I guess. So–the “big one”–after two years of beating around the bush and a bunch o’ staff discussions it was decided that we’ll open up donations. There was going to be a page to go along with how/why this became a conclusion, but it ended up being paragraphs with every rewrite so I opted not to do that. It’s just a button on the side. Not some fancy form, not some bar to guilt trip you into putting money to fill it up, just a button, with Mio. You can use it, ignore it, put it on your adblock forever, whatever you want. Any donations will primarily go towards getting raws that we need/use, mostly tanks, but also magazines nowadays too, as well as the occasional server upkeep. You have our gratitude.
The second is just a call for recruitment again. Scorpian is looking for a Translator for his next Miyata Kouji project/joint here, and I’m (still) looking around for a Typesetter for Houkago Play because it warrants a dedicated one. Now that finals are over, hopefully all the other things can start picking up again. Please.
Also obligatory “come visit the irc” comment here. I usually can be found just answering questions in there.
As it turns out, there was nothing at all wrong with my transmission. A hose connected to the crank case just imploded, causing a vacuum leak. Unmetered air was getting into the engine, which is what was causing the bizarro issues I’ve been having in the recent past. $380 later, this is no longer an issue. Yeah, that sucks. But you know, when it comes to vehicle repairs, anything under $700 is generally considered pretty good. Had it actually been a transmission issue, which is what I originally thought it was, I’d be looking at a bill of at least $1k, probably more. So yeah, it could have been a lot worse. I’m just glad to have my truck back. ^_^
As for Alien, the end is in sight! Episode six will be out in the very near future, and that will conclude the series. I have kept my eyes and ears open, but it doesn’t look like there’s any evidence of more to come. The current volume is the only one out there, and I sincerely doubt we’ll ever see a second one.
This year, like last, we planned to do porn for New Years. ‘Course because nothing really goes as planned none of said porn has come out yet, until now. It’s another Fuuga thing. Hooray!
I was going to do this originally, but then Scorpian said he liked Fuuga so he started doing it, only to realize his grave mistake in having to deal with these balloons and how every instance of the brother being mentioned as “Onii-chan”. Fast-foward weeks of just hating life and battling this ‘Onii-chan’, it was eventually completed. And then another month later for me to get around to uploading to sad panda. Aha…
Please fix the tags because I’m autistic. Thank you.
Will we do the other five chapters? Maybe. If no one else bothers to do them in like three months.
So I was poking around enterbrain’s website yesterday, and looky here at what I found. Apparently, a second volume was released half a month ago, and I didn’t know about it. I wasn’t expecting it. v1 came out in September last year, and considering how long it took him to work through Alien, I wouldn’t have guessed another one would be out this soon. Yikes. Well, my request from the last post still stands. If anyone is willing to help out with it, please let me know.
Oh yeah, and here’s another part of Alien. Or something. I guess. I dunno.
I’ve tried to advertise a different series with every episode, but I ran out of ideas here. And thus, we’re back to this little gem. I guess I can semi-promote it here. If anyone’s interested in translating it or the likes, please let me know. I already have scans, and I call dibs on editing the script and lettering it.
Anyway, 5.1 is also the first part where I started experimenting with a new, more advanced lettering style. CloudSplitter BB has autolig support built in (I only use OpenType fonts), but it also has different variations of each letter tied to the upper- and lowercase characters. Keeping that in mind, I swapped between versions when two of the same letter were near each other. I also found that this sometimes resulted in different character widths, so I utilized that to tweak the final line width and make it fit the balloon shape more naturally. Well, in addition to manually stretching/condensing the character width for the entire line, that is. Way too much effort? Probably. Worth it? I think so. Feedback is always welcome. Any comments on my lettering style are appreciated, so long as they’re constructive.
