Post 44, Azumi v01c01


So, it begins.
A new joint with HappyScans that will go on for years.

Azumi is a seinen manga, with feudal Japan as setting.
A group of children is raised up by a mysterious man
who trains them as assassins to have them carry out
missions in the "outside world" to thin down the enemies
of the Tokugawas.

Azumi is a mature story, with its light moments too, but
contains a lot of violence, blood, heads and limbs flying
and so on. Even sex scenes and a good amount of rape
in some cases. All of this it's not put there just for the hell
of it, if you actually read the story everything has got a
sense and a meaning. Just remember that it's not a story
for kids and some chapters are NSFW.

About the glossary: Azumi is a fictitious story set in a real
historical period with real historical figures of the past and
a lot of original characters. Since it can be a whole mess
for characters, places, names and so on, I decided to write
a glossary where you'll find every Japanese term you'll
encounter during the story, being it a name place, a character
name, some food name, a suffix and so on. It will grow chapter
by chapter. Much, much information is taken from Wikipedia
and more often than not I invite you to check it to have a ton of
more information about what you're reading. Please, if you find
errors, missing long vowels, hyperlinks that shouldn't been there,
formatting problems, different fonts and so on, tell me, I'll fix it.
Only remember that I'm at the beginning of volume 10 with reading
and doing the glossary, so actual changes will take a lot of time to
actually be reflected inside the pdf.

Post 43, Slow Step v05c39, Vagabond 317, announcements

First of all, the end of volume 5 is on Mangatraders.

Since at this pace it'll take forever to end it and I need to concentrate on other stuff too, I'll speed up the releases from next week with two chapters per week, one on Wednesdays and one on Fridays.

Vagabond 317 is here too.
The next chapter will be published on the third week of september, so be patient!!

The script of a new project with HappyScan! was sent.
I don't know if they'll announce the project later with the Vagabond release
or if they'll wait until the new project release is ready. This manga will be the end of me.
But don't worry, you'll still get your Adachi fixes.

Still no Last Order 123 raws, and today 124 should come out on Evening too.

Post 40, Fantasy World Jun Volume 2

Fantasy World Jun Volume 2
So, a splendid journey ends.

When Wrigh showed me Jun some time back in...May I think, I was struck by the art
and the experimental kind of story. It had so much beauty and atmosphere that I really
wanted to do it, so I started translating it bit by bit between my other projects. V1 was
relatively easy to do, but V2, as I think you already saw, had almost 60% of more text,
thanks to those pages where Ishinomori talks about a lot of interesting stuff and the "journey"
chapter. That's why it took so longer than V1 to do it. Ishinomori himself wanted to draw
a "poem", not a "manga" and I think it accomplished his goal. The only regret I have is
the quality of the translation itself. Being not an English native speaker is tough, sometimes :(

I would like to thank Wrigh for the opportunity he gave me with Jun and to thank
a1oner too, who I made go crazy with my script , for his patience.
