Bambino! Volume 5, Chapter 53

The sound effect here is "PFFFFFT" just in case it wasn't clear.

That's the end of this volume. I got good news and bad news.

Good news is, I'm (tentatively, maybe sorta kinda perhaps and every other weasel term I can think of) back with some free time to spare for fan translation.

Bad news (for you!) is that I'm probably not gonna be spending that time on Bambino. More specifically, I wanna focus on finishing up the volume of Baccano I've been working on for forever and a half months, and after that, maybe (if I'm lucky and get someone awesomely skilled [hint hint] to merge that blasted spread for me) the Black Lagoon novel by Urobuchi Gen which I feel was pretty good and worth giving a shot.

So, yeah. Them's the breaks. Enjoy the chapter.

I'm not dropping Bambino, just to make things clear. Though if anyone wants to take it on they're free to do so without needing my permission (seriously, asking scanlators for permission is just silly).

Bambino! Volume 5, Chapter 52

 Whatcha doooooooing?

Again, I'm not really "back." Just finishing stuff that I've had sitting half-done for months. No promises on when the next chapters will be out. I've learned my lesson (again) with promises. Heh. Enjoy.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFffffffffffuuuuuuuuuUuuuuuuuuuuuUUuuuuuuuccccck YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Genshiken manga getting continued? This is hands down the best news I've read all year. ALL. YEAR.

Baccano! 2001 - The Children of Bottle: Chapter 4

I would like to say I'm back, but this is more finishing stuff I was working on before than anything. Anyway! This is the longest chapter of the bunch; all that's left is one more chapter and then an epilogue or two. Color pages are coming soon. I think. That may be a Soon™ ala Blizzard Entertainment. done. Kinda. I can't really figure out a way to make them look half-decent with horizontal English text, so I'm leaving them unedited, just merged so you can see what the picture looks like.

Hope you all enjoy.

I don't normally ask or look for help, but this is so far beyond my meager photoshop abilities it's not even funny.

I need someone who can merge a double page illustration spread. Preferably so well that you can't tell the two pages were separate. It goes without saying that you would have to be better than me, though I suppose that's not such a tall order. There are Hands in the spread's gap (I say this with a deliberate capital H), and Shading. I can't offer you anything solid, but if you wish I could include a credits page or summat that mentions you in tones of awed wonder once I get started on this project.

If you feel that you are a bad enough dude (or gal) to undertake this mission, click the jump break and see what needs to be done. Big thanks in advance to anyone and everyone who takes the time to fiddle with this.

I think I've got what I need. Much thanks to the kind soul(s) who pitched in. (˚∀˚)
