Dead Dead c10

Okay so here is the 10th glorious chapter of DDDdDDDD/Dead Dead/デデデデ/Deeeeeaaaddd, the one where you find out more about Some guy nobody cares about.

I also have been scanning and uploading Murai’s anthology/art book. (from the guy who did Cathexis and Cat in the Car). Its my first time scanning and TLing all at once and my Japanese is very very basic and slow, so expect very slow updates and bad scans.

That’s the entire post, but Meiru is making wall of texts that are hard to follow, so here is a list of some albums from this year that I enjoyed:

I-It only took almost three years guys.

Today is my birthday. Another year closer to getting to Gensokyo.

The story behind this chapter is kind of funny. The last chapter released was in 2011, but we never actually dropped it until 2013. The chapter/volume itself has seen multiple cleaners, multiple scans, and multiple revisions across the years. The biggest reason for dropping it was that the redraws were harsh on everyone. At least, at the time I thought they were. (They aren’t anymore, as evident by my own personal redraw for this chapter that I did yesterday.) The redraws are dated. They were done by a redrawer for hire of sorts, where it was a doujin a redraw or so. Other than that, the chapter sat dormant for years.

Yesterday, I thought it would be funny to see how fast I can do the chapter from Raw to Release in the way I do manga now. Back in the first volume it took me around 12 hours to do ~60 pages with it all pre-cleaned. Raw to Release took me about ~8 hours, but most of it was spent idling around. It’s not the best looking release by any means, but if I conceded a little more I probably could’ve done it faster.

The script was terrible and left the way it was for the most part. Ningen’s evolved a lot since then, though that may be hard to tell. Looking at it now, I immediately remembered why this was so hard to work through. A lot of unforgiving screentones, a lot of small word balloons, and a hell of a lot of yelling for no reason. I love the series for what it means to me, but at the same time I loathe almost as much, but that’s how it goes. It was a fun exercise, but I definitely do not miss the grind of working on this series. Cosmos is dead. Long Live Cosmos.

To Sector89, I finished it. You can’t hold this over me any longer!

Handa-kun/Project Status

It’s late and I don’t know what I’m doing anymore. Here is a piece of Handa-kun. (click image)

Dunno if we’ll do this. We’re all pretty swamped with stuff lately. I just scanned it because I like practicing cleans. Anyway, Project Status update time. Please click “Continue reading” to see literally everything. We could’ve dropped your favorite manga!!?!

Also, I’d like to get more involved with the people via social media. Going to [try] to tweet more about stuff/releases on the tweeter account. There is an if you want to ask questions about (almost) anything, even stuff outside of scanlation. It’s easier than writing an email.

Bitter Change: Ch.12 & Ch.13

Bitter Change Ch.12 — DDL: [MEGA] | Online: [Reader]
Bitter Change Ch.13 — DDL: [MEGA] | Online: [Reader]

I was supposed to release this on the 20th, but I pulled a Togashi and played through all of Xillia and some of Xillia 2 in one fell swoop. I also got really drunk and tried to stream play Shovel Knight and eventually some bad Compile Heart games like Neptunia and Fairy Fencer F because I don’t know. Please don’t drink and scanlate, kids.
