185) Jitsuroku - Adachi Mitsuru Monogatari Part4, Azumi v10 c06 (c80)

Jitsuroku - Adachi Mitsuru Monogatari Part4
Do you have a master for life? Sadly, I haven't one.

Yes, you'll read Little Boy after Jitsuroku ends, unless Short Game raws pop up before.

edit: added Azumi v10 c06 (c80) for a happy and merry christmas.

180) Jitsuroku - Adachi Mitsuru Monogatari, Part 1

Jitsuroku - Adachi Mitsuru Monogatari - Part 1

Here we are, I hope you like it.
About all those notes flying around: deal with it.
While reading it again, I've even found out that I should've put another couple of them here and there... Oh, well.

178) Otogi no machi no Rena v07 Final

Otogi no machi no Rena v07 Final
Final chapter.
I really liked that Hattori wrote that last page.
Too bad I guess.

Next week, Adachi Tsutomu wil begin telling us the REAL story about his famous brother. Oh boy.

174) Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c58

Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c58

Edit: sorry guys, I totally forgot to update Baka. With my main hard drive getting busted on Monday, things have been pretty ugly. But don't worry, all the juicy manga stuff is on another hard drive. Moreover, it gets backed up every day.

170) Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c56

Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c56
Deceiving chotas!!!

The new Evening installment is out, carrying the start of the new Alita series.
That I will NOT translate. I don't have the time, simple as that :(
But rest assured, three different groups in the past days
asked me if they could use my translations on Ripper's
for doing their, provided at least one of them
finds a dedicated translator, we'll all read the new series
in scan form (until the US publisher will leave them be).

168) Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c55

Otogi no machi no Rena v07 c55

So, why this?
Because it's a series I wanted to read to the end.
Simple as that.

I discovered Hattori Mitsuru with the Umisho anime, then I read the manga version and then...I wanted to read other stuff by him. It's frustrating when you don't know how a story ends...
Sadly, Rena is not the good story it could have be (not entirely the author's fault'll see...).

Remember that this manga was serialised in Uppers, so it's NSFW.

This was also the first time I found so much text placed over the drawings and so many small balloons full of sfx...but I've survived! :)

166) Initial D Extra Story Takumi's Side Story and Azumi v09 c03 (c70)

Initial D Extra Story Takumi's Side Story 
And with this, Initial D is over.
I can't wait to see the other OVAs to find out
the bits I got wrong in my ts or that I didn't fully understand :)

Azumi v09 c03 (c70)
She's too honest...

165) Initial D v48 Extra Story Beyond Impact Blue

Initial D v48 Extra Story Beyond Impact Blue

Maybe someone have noticed, maybe not.
v48 raws where hell. Not due to pixel resolution,
but because who did the job had at least 2/3 of the pages
scanned not straight. They were bent from 0,2 degrees to almost 2.
It was the first time something like this happened to me...
I had to "correct" a ton of pages (above 0,2 degrees),
and the Impact Blue ones were the worst of them all.

163) Initial D v48 c717-Final

Initial D v48 c717-Final
Here we are, the last three episodes.

Only two side stories left.

From 10/22, I'll start releasing the last chapters of Otogi no machi no Rena.

I've also put up a page with the glossary for Azumi, so you can have it always there.
I'll update it every time a chapter is released (let's see how long I'll keep doing it before screaming "what a bother!!"...).

153) Ah! Seishun no Koushien v07 Adachi Mitsuru Best Works Collection v01 Part 03 Kitakaze Karakara (end)

Ah! Seishun no Koushien v07 Adachi Mitsuru Best Works Collection v01 Part 03 Kitakaze Karakara (end)

And that's it. The end.
After months, my original, sidetracked for a while (Slow Step, Idol A), old Adachi stuff translation project
it's finally over. Yay. Nope, I'm not planning on doing Rainbowman, Ganbare onna no ko or
Oato ga yoroshii you de.

Trivia: when I did the poll to know what you wanted to read the most between Gamushara and Slow Step,
I was totally sure you would go with Gamushara, because it was something new, that you had never read and so on...and mainly because I was just missing 30 pages to translate, so it would have been almost complete at the start of the releases and that would have given me time to translate a good part of Slow Step while releasing Gamushara and...we all know how it went :)

As for the future, I'll continue Azumi, finish Initial D, end another neglected series and if His Majesty Inoue would do the favor to grace us miserable souls with Vagabond, I guess I could go on with it for a bit, but it's a manga I don't like it anymore, so don't be surprised if you'll see it dropped. There was also supposed to be a new Battle Angel Alita series coming out this summer, but Kishiro is another of those reliable mangakas, so, who knows.

Moreover, I'm giving a hand here translating The Legend of Heroes - Zero no kiseki when I have some free time. The project site is here. If you are a decent translator and want to give us a hand, please do. No way
we will be able to tackle that monster game script in two. Or, well, it's possible, but you'll see the project completed in ten years, at the pace with things are going.

Huuuge one shot. Have fun.

Here's the complete v06. The single v06 links will be taken down sooner or later.

And Azumi's here too.
Azumi v08 c02 (c61)
A sword slash on a shoulder.
Kubo would approve.

See you on friday for Initial D.

146) Azumi v08 c01 (c60) and Initial D v46 c687-688

In case yesterday you missed it, here's a new Azumi chapter:
Azumi v08 c01 (c60) 
Must be tough swimming in that current...

And, surprise:
Initial D v46 c687-688
this wasn't gonna suppose to happen until mid october,
but since I couldn't find the raws for another neglected
series I wanted to pick up and finish, I've moved this
ahead of schedule.
I'm no car savvy nor an expert so you'll probably find
weird stuff in the translations. Sorry about that.

Btw1: Mediafire has been acting up pretty badly for me recently,
I hope you can download from those links without problems.
Btw2: do you know if the Mangatraders guys are alive and plan
to rebuild their website or if they have disbanded?

Ah! Seishun no Koushien v06 Part04 Ace Futari
You should have read this already as "Two Champions" thanks to Imangascans
when they worked on the Short Program Girl's Type volume. This is my version.

Azumi v07 c06 (c57)
Azumi v07 c07-08 (c58-59)

(don't ask me why all these chapters were released since there're actually no v08 chapters checked yet...)

Munenori was a bit surprised.
Just a little bit.

Ah! Seishun no Koushien v06 Nakimushi Koushien v04 Part 03 
The end of Nakimushi Koushien. Starting from next week we're
going to have five Adachi's oneshots. You should've already read
one of them though.

If you missed it yesterday, here's Azumi v07 c05 (c56)

That's all.

Your weekly Adachi.

I've also posted the Battle Angel Alita Last Order Chronology on Ripper's forum.
That was madness to translate.

I would like to give a big thank you to T.B. for his donation.
When I saw the pp email I thought it was spam or a scam,
then it came to mind that actually there's a donation button on
this blog. Thanks again!

On another note, I've decided to translate the Battle Angel Alita chronology you find in the Gaiden/Another Stories volume. The script will be posted in the usual place in a week or so.

Azumi v05 c06 (c41)
Yes, like that.
How did they reunite? When? What did they say to each other? And so on...
At first, I thought that there was a chapter missing, or some pages, but it's not the case.
It's like Koyama did with Sanada Masayuki.
He was killed. When and how it's not showed in the story.

What a horrible weekend with no internet connection.
I was starting to have withdrawal syndhromes...

Btw, Tenko has released Mix c20, so definitely check that out.

Ah! Seishun no Koushien v02 Hatsukoi Koushien v02 Part 06
This ends v02 and the Hatsukoi Koushien story.

Full v01
Full v02

I guess there's really no Vagabond this month.
I thought that there was 323 and then Inoue would've gone on hiatus,
but maybe 323 will be the first new chapter he's gonna release on June 19.
I dunno.

Azumi v03 c07 (c24)
So much blood...

It came to my attention that it's been already 1 year since this humble place has been open.
There's been a lot of good stuff going on and a lot of less nicer stuff, but all in all the experience
has been positive. Let's see how the next year will fare.
Thank you to all of you who download and read my stuff, even though the quality can be pretty bad some times. Please, bear with it for some other months.

Azumi v03 c05 (c22)
The Hey Hey Dance is back!

And the second part of Battle Angel Alita ends.
Well, it was about time ^^".

I don't know if I'll be there to tranlsate the Mars saga too, it'll depend
if my life will still be crap like now in summer too or not.
For my sake, I'd prefer the latter case.

Last Order Phase.128 script was posted on Ripper's Anime forum.
I'll try to have the final chapter out by tomorrow too.

On a side note, Tenko released MIX c19, so you should go grab it, if you are an Adachi fan ;)

Post 93, Azumi v03 c04 (c21)

This is different than the previous version.
It has four pages fixed and something else that should've been already in the first release.
Obviously, online readers have the old version. Too bad for them.

Post 89, Vagabond 322

Vagabond 322

Is farmland over?, that was another manga.

Are they finally reaching the country of the Elves?, that's a different manga too.

Is this agony of a manga ending, at last?
He just needs to hit Kojirou in the head with a stick or something from behind...
and then, 20 years of Slam Dunk 2 will be upon us!! I'm positive...

The start of a new volume.

I'll be translating the new Vagabond today and send the script later.
I hope the finished chapter will come in the weekend.
