Nobody around here?! :(

StopTazmo got shut down, and I wasn't active for the last few months, so I didn't get to see it go for good (although there was some talk of Kane shutting it down eventually...).

Can't wait for that Alef-Thau when I get back. Currently gorging on delicious cheap food and mint tea in Morocco, then heading to Spain in the next week or two. If anyone here from Europe wants to meet up let me know.
And yeah the redrawing in TWIM is a fucking bitch. If I remember right its even worse in his series "SCATTER".

@BlueDemon
Yeah, Desert Punk is still ongoing. At least, vol15 came out this year in Japan.

It's cool that you're still continuing with those projects! =)
Is Desert Punk completed or still on-going?

Anyway, good luck and see you around!

Yep, I'm around. Pretty much alone now, battling to keep the skiff afloat...

Working on
- Katajikenai, redrawing and waiting for a counter-proof.
- The World Is Mine, redrawing vol.14. (you were right Rev! There's so much of it to be done!)
- and some Otomo's, mainly waiting for translations.

I'll lay the groundwork for the translations of Desert Punk vol. 12 and 13 this weekend. Will surely start these translations in a week or two, after I finish translating Alef-Thau, a french comicbook series from writer Jodorowsky and (now defunct) artist Arno. Half of vol.6 is done for this one, and two more volumes to go.

I may also scan a new surprise treat this weekend as well.

If only I could find KN raws ;-;

Well, we have raws for Katajikenai, and a near complete translation ! I have to do a mean proofread on it, clean and redraw the raws, and letter the whole thing. It'll take time, as usual, but unless a dreadful event occurs (like me dyin', or all my backups fryin'), it'll be done.

And…

You may have little surprise in the next few days… ;D

Eh ! Who knew : I stumbled on some raws for Katajikenai ! And what's more : they're rather decent.
No need to buy it then.

But we do need translators... for everything !

You bet I would!
This can be problematic though :
Spinoza's volumes are almost impossible to find, and if you find them, you'd have to sell some of your organs (or someone else's...) to buy them. Last time I saw them both, they cost around ¥15000 (around $150). You can then double that amount, because if I happen to have a copy of each volume of this series, I would never unbind them unless I have a second copy to keep on my shelf.

Katajikenai is more affordable : currently at about ¥2500 (around $25). I already own a copy, but same as above : I want a second one that I can tear appart. Even more in this particular case : the book format isn't your regular tankubon manga, and the binding is woven :
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!
Once it's unbinded, it's over, I can't rebind it afterward.

But if you still want to spend money, pm me. I might just buy some stuff from Japan soon.

Anyone interested in buying Koike Keiichi's manga and scanning it?
I'm talking about Katajikenai ans Spinoza.
I'd donate 50% of the price.




I'm sure Ikkyusan would.

Likewise Blue. Amazed to see remnants of the group still here.

Ran across jcafe myself looking for links to the yume onna oneshot.



I should have looked into that one. I just ran into the Yume Onna oneshot by chance, and I didn't even realize it was made by Oku until I saw this one face in the dream world that just screamed out his art style.

I also found link's too some translated chapters from Hen and that manga that Morten was thinking about scanlating back on ST, Extremely Kamoshida. I never found it because the scanlators kept the name as Kiwamate Kamoshida and it was never posted on any major release tracking sites. Both were actually done before we even started looking for them and both by the same people on the same site which is kind of ironic now that I think about it.

Ah, the good ol days.

Here are the links for those interested.
http://tgmanga2.free.fr/manga/adult/kiwamete_kamoshida/kiwamete_kamoshida.htm

http://tgmanga2.free.fr/manga/adult/hen/hen.htm

I must ask, what was Oku's thing with always having this one really, really tall male character?

I come back here now and then to see of some of the older members from here or from ST are active(-ish) again! Otherwise I'm still checking daily on ST and I'm quite active on NF (yeah, I know, lol).

How's life been treating ya?

Offtopic for life!

And in other, by some miracle, the mangaka of Yuutai Nova has made a new chapter apparently to improve on the horrible ending it had previously.

Woah, didn't find out Gantz had ended until I went to go catch up on it today.

Has anyone gotten ahold to Inu Yashiki? I can't find much info about it online?

Sorry for being around lately. Some personal stuff's being going to sh-t lately.

Also I've been trying to get Patlabor manga, only 'cause the scanlation scene's pretty quiet with it lately and I hated VIZ for using it as their debut manga and yet, they flopped it like how Western comics are read.

I wish I can get the bunko. But current circumstances are not allowing me to do that. Curse you, life!

I can only get my hands on the original 22.
