Quite a long time again since I've dropped by...

@Blue- What is APF?

@Anton - How's you Finnish(?) adventure coming along?


APF stands for Arlong Park Forums. It's an OP forum I still tend to look up.

Hope you guys are all doing great!

It’s nice to see everyone’s still alive. I hope life is going well for all of you.

Maybe one day enough of us will be around to sustain a conversation again; I'd like to catch up with a few of you, if only briefly.

Edit: Oh, I didn't realize StopTazmo was gone. What a shame, though it's hardly surprising. I don't recall it being especially active the last time I checked.

Is it just me, or do the human's look even uglier than the monsters in Gantz:O CG?

I keep in contact with on facebook, he's still kicking irl, not so much in the manga world.


Been wondering how to contact him lately. I figured my PMs here were a bust anyway.

And there are more Gantz projects planned, I think there was also talk of a reboot of sorts. This spin-off is just the first project, if I'm not mistaken.

Just found out that there is a new Gantz. https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=128409

So, I guess the wait for Gantz commences once again.

I'm not a prolific manga/anime consumer anymore, but I do check out animesuki when I want to have discussions about manga/anime. Can also keep in touch via twitter (@transp0rtedman), though you should warn and tell me your handle before making an invite as I generally screen out unknown requests.

Alright, will do so when I find my Twitter password again :D

A little something.
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!
Top left is a double-page from Koike Keiichi published in "Moebius and Japanese manga special issue" of Eureka, July 2009. For your viewing pleasure :
http://www.mediafire.com/view/tiu05x36sk11352/Koike-Keiichi-Bande-de-Moebius_%5BGWR%5D.png
Bottom left is another Koike's work, a short story published in "Native American Indian Philosophy" (forgive the translation) in 2011.
On the right is the first issue of Comic OZ, a collection of short stories printed in 1985.
And I'm halfway through the translation of Kiichi vol.8.



Super hyped to read Kiichi when you complete it! Thank you so much!

I had tried twice to archive my favorite subs & threads with scrapers but there simply was too much content for the tools I was using at the time to process in a  reasonable time & space. It's a bit ironic because now there are plenty of tools to do that job quickly and even in real-time thanks to twitter existing, but ST is dust now.

Seems like June 2013 is the last working snapshot the waybackmachine recorded without error, so a lot of the forum classics are saved. But offtopia and a few other select corners are lost to the world.

I actually had the thread bookmarked and I think I saved one or two of the most hilarious posts - yeah, I'm a bit sad, the forum and you guys made for some really fun times! I just checked, the offtopia forum I set up a few years ago is also gone... Ah well, time is ever changing, huh?

Yeah, ST was pretty dead towards the end. There were only a handful of us still posting there. I'll miss the place.

Hey Stuy, yeah, sorry bout that! Hadn't though about the fact that things would get even quiter once I stopped updating the OP thread...but well, I guess that wouldn't have changed anything.

So, apart from the odd visit to Jcafe, are you still ghosting on Anime/Manga forums on the net? I can be found on NF (yeah yeah, the irony :D) and Arlong Park (where I just contacted krazykwasi, he just asked me if I knew anything about other old ST members).

Oh and Ikkyusan and Revilenigma, you guys hear anything from morten? Or is he gone for good?

ll posting there. I'll miss the

Argh, hadn't thought of that!! But I just hit it up on the waybackmachine and the site is archived...so there's at least some things one could still dig up =)
I was caught up in some RL things, so I wasn't there when it got shut down. I knew Kane was thinking about doing just that, but I didn't think it'd happen so soon (and my disapperance from the site - being the one with the highest activity - probably didn't help either, lol).

Ah well, whatever he's doing know, hope he knows he has my gratitude for having held up the forum for so long. An era is truly over now.

I guess we're all some sort of satellites now.
Had to step away from the hobbies because I was pretty preoccupied with my work. But it's getting quieter again there, so I'm coming back to scanlating, albeit at snail speed.
Kiichi vol4 almost done, after two months... I'll finish this series, whatever it takes, don't worry nahu !
(If someone could lend a hand to typeset the rest, that'd be super helpful though)

Other projects on the side :
scanlation of the Alef-Thau comicbook series (from author Jodorowky and artist Arno) with our friends at Roselia. Translation's done and the typesetting is almost finished.
I'm translating Face de Lune (from Jodorowsky too, but with artist Boucq this time). Two thirds of vol2 done right now.
I've also just received some new Koike stuff. Or rather, old Koike stuff. You'll see.

Well.. as far as i know Ikkyusan & Revilenigma are around here...
But yeah... forum is pretty much dead in terms of "talking".

I'm only around since I'm trying to get Kyo proofread. Problem is that it's taking a while since I had to go to Vietnam as a tag-along.

Hey Blue,

Just noticed ST was dead too. It's a shame the site wasn't archived recently. Lots of good memories there.
