So I thought Meow botched the upload of this and I nuked the original post because I saw dupes on the reader.
Turns out it was just my office internet being a shit. Woops. I feel quite silly now. のヮの
Anyway, I’ll be attending AFA Singapore on the 6th of December for the iM@S and nagi segments. SEAfags hit me up. I know you’re out there. I’ll be the guy in the Yukiho T-shirt. Just give PuchiTL a couple hollers and maybe we can bitch about the state of the industry together some, eh?
This was actually done a long time ago, I’m just too lazy to upload things. No picture because if I’m too lazy to upload manga, I’m probably too lazy to find a picture. Everyone should just play civ in space, it’s glorious. I don’t know what else to put here, it’s been so long since I released something.

With this we end Vol.2 of Bitter Change–well almost. There’s still an extra chapter left and then we’ll be all done with that. High School arc is soon and with it comes a lot more of everything. There’s also Watamote and the omake, because Watamote is basically tri-weekly now. I’m slower than Watamote, sorry.
I went back and corrected every single chapter/volume number of Watamote, so it’s all right now after years of it being super wrong. At this point a ton of blog links are broken now, oops. Just check the reader!

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:
- Sleep Party People – Floating Dream Pop, Shoegaze
- The Soundcarriers – Entropicalia Psychedelic Rock
- Sevendeaths – Concreté Misery Drone
- Ricky Eat Acid – Three Love Songs Ambient, Drone
- Owen Pallett – In Conflict Art Pop
- Machine Girl – WLFGRL Grime, Breakcore
- La Dispute – Rooms of the House Post Hardcore
- Ben Frost – A U R O R A Drone
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!
