Yes, Virginia. There is still a Tonigobe. + Natsukaze 6

No, I’m not dead, yet. But I was exhausted!

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope you’re New Year started off splendidly. ^_^

2017 has been an extremely busy year for me–as far as my regular life is concerned. I haven’t been able to put in as much time into translating things as I would like. I’m hopeful that this year will be a lot better, where I will not only continue gainful employment, but won’t be as stressed out by the demand and workload…and have enough brain cells, energy and time to do my hobby–translating mangas!

That said, I have been TRYING to get some translations projects done. Especially one that I’ve been commissioned to do by Waver. (My apologies to Waver for taking so long ^/\^ and my sincere thanks for his patience!) It’s a major one like the last few Waver projects where I’m not only translating and editing, but I’m also handling the scanning and cleaning as well. Actually, the cleaning part is just me, because I’m fussy with how the image looks! ^_^;; But, I have set the bar kinda high for myself, where I have to put take 2-page spreads of detailed art (like the image on the left), and stitch them together almost seamlessly (like the images on the right). Anyhow, I hope to have more of that, including more Muv-Luv chapters, in the upcoming months.

Now…On To A New Year of Translations!

A Yotsubato! Doujinshi

Although I didn’t have enough brain cells to do a heady (comparatively speaking.  It does have a lot of characters and involved dialog) project like Wavers, I did have enough brain cells to do some simple pron!–just a something to keep my sanity up during the all too hectic Holiday Season. Namely, a Yotsubato! doujinshi that others didn’t translate yet–probably because of the poor quality raws.

Anyhow, since gairaigo and later Tigoris Translates translated what seems to be the follow-up to the Natsukaze series, I really wanted to see how this chapter played out; so, I thought I’d take a stab at it.  I cleaned up the raw scans as best as I could, too. See page comparison on the right. Luckily, it wasn’t as involved as this other project, but with all the “warping” and “ghosts” and apparent dirt on the glass of the scanner, it was bit more work than I would have liked!  Still, overall, it was a fun project to do!

So, Happy New Year and Enjoy!

A Strawberry Marshmallow Parody Continues

I wanted to post this before heading out to work.

After completing chapter 4 of Waver’s project, I gave myself another quick break to work on this Toyatei doujinshi. It’s the 2nd part/chapter/volume of Kaigo Mashimaro.


Sneak Peak of Waver’s project


I have mentioned before that I’m working on a 2-volume project for Waver. Although I’m already “cleaning” the 5th chapter before translation, Waver won’t be releasing it until he’s able to proofread/review the whole manga (or mangas) in total, just to make sure everything is correct.

The cleaning process of raw scans is labor intensive for me; primarily because I’m insane enough to want to capture as much detail of the artist’s artwork as possible while doing away with the junk you get when printing on pulp (or slightly better than pulp) paper before downsizing it to something to where most people won’t notice the difference! Nonetheless, it is a selfish but satisfying experience. ^_^

In between cleaning, to sorta give myself a mental break, I started setting up the my font selection and dummy text layout for MuvLuv Alternative Chapter 38 (see sample on right). I even managed to actually translate a page or two.

Check out the sneak peaks. ^_^

Koe De Oshigoto! Take 10, Version 2

I’m posting this for those who want it, because it’s something I do in the process of learning, and because obvious fake pointed out a typo: I have version 2 of KDOS Volume 10.

Special thanks to obvious fake (if that’s his real alias! CRAFTY2 photo crafty.gif) for pointing out a typo in the chapter numbering for chapter 60.

This version 2 also includes a few additional minor adjustments and corrections that stood out for me when I reviewed the manga this weekend.

Anyhow, for those who want it, please download via MEGA.

Update: Koe De Oshigoto! and Muv-Luv Alternative

Yes, I’m still alive. Sorta.

Family and work has been keeping me unexpectedly and extremely busy, this fall. For some reason, it usually ends up that way around this time of year. I recall a real stressful season a few years back! ^_^;;

But, I seem to be slowly getting back into the groove, and I hope to resume finishing up Koe De Oshigoto! and the next chapter of Muv-Luv Alternative.

I was hoping to have KDOS done a while back. With any luck, I hope to have it complete and posted this time next week. ^_^

And, with any luck, hope to have the next chapter of Muv-Luv posted before the New Year.

Thank you for your patience. ^/\^

Yes, Virginia…There is still a Tonigobe


This summer has been über hectic…not that I drive with über or anything like that.  It’s the same old same old:  Über busy with work and family and work and more work.  FRUSTRATED-2 photo computer.gif  (And I’ll prolly end up working tomorrow, too!)  At least it’s not as stressful as the previous summer or so.

I was hoping to finish a number of projects before my October vacation–primarily Haken no Muuko-san and Koe De Oshigoto!— but at this rate, I’ll be lucky if I can get at least one chapter each in.  If I can swing it, I’ll be posting Chapter 19 of Muuko-san tomorrow, and Chapter 53 of KDOs next week.

What about Muv-Luv Alternative!?!  Since I’ll be having a month-long vacation this time around, I’ll be taking my laptop and be working on the script for Muv-Luv Alternative all next month (sans certain family reunion functions), and hopefully start working on the editing when I get back–kinda like what I did with my last vacation, some years ago.  If all goes well, I hope to have a new chapter for Volume 5 around the first week of November…along with the final chapter of Muuko-san and Chapter 54 of KDOs.

That’s all the rant for now.  I’m actually fighting a headache here.  I better hit the sack and let the aspirins kick in.  Goodnight, y’all.  Nemu1 photo sleeps.gif
