Black Lagoon - Shaitane Badi: Chapter 3 (2/2)

Took a bit longer than I thought, and truth be told it was more or less done about a week ago. Just couldn't find the time to go over it again. So yeah, apologies for that. Good news is, chapter 3 was the longest chapter of the bunch, so chapters 4 and 5-

Wait, I think I've been in a situation like this before. I'll just keep my mouth shut and not jinx anything.

I am keeping Japanese honorifics for Falcon, simply because he is the last true practitioner of the wonders of the Orient and that is too hilarious awesome for words.

More Pimpin'

I am taking a break from sightseeing and getting fat(ter?) to tell those who may be interested that Shigurui (which I used to work on and regrettably ended up dropping) is finally finished at 15 volumes. I thought it was a pretty decent ending, though I suppose you may or might not agree. Anyway, if you were following the series or thought you might wanna give it a try (in which case the previous volumes from 1 to 11 are on my mediafire), go and take a look at Anonymous Stem's blog!

Status Report

I've got a friend coming to stay at my place for a few weeks to sightsee and such, so updates will probably be very few and far between. I'll try and get out the Black Lagoon chapter at least since I'm almost done with it, but besides that it's likely there won't be much coming from me until early February at the earliest.

...Yeah. I humbly prostrate myself before any artists, art majors and/or other artistically inclined individuals. I never learned how to draw and that one page killed me. If you don't notice it, great. If you do, dammit Jim, I'm a translator, not an editor. (´;ω;`)

Anyway, yeah.

Bambino! Volume 6, Chapter 59

Mediafire download

Not my best editing work ever on that one chapter title page by a long shot, but eh. Agonizing over it more would just waste time for something that's not really that important. Enjoy.

Bambino! Volume 6, Chapter 58

Mediafire download

Oh Ban, you dork.


There are, I am aware, some small number of people who come to this blog for Black Lagoon stuff, so I thought I'd plug something you might be interested in. The Book of Venom, Hiroe Rei's Black Lagoon compendium, has been scanned in its entirety. It features guest illustrations and comics from several mangaka including Sekiya Tetsuji, Bambino's mangaka, oh god he is so bad at drawing BL ahahaha, interviews with Hiroe and several others including Toyoguchi Megumi (Revy's voice actress), and various other tidbits. To be completely honest, unless you can read Japanese there's probably not much you'd be interested in, but there is an interview written entirely in very readable English near the end of the book. If you're interested, be sure to drop by Anonygoo's blog and give it a download.

oh yeah and there's the oppai chart, can't miss that, unf unf unf

Chapter 56
Chapter 57

Mmm. I dunno about you, but I could go for some seafood fritto right about now.

All I gotta say is, for a hack of an editor like me, CS5's content aware tool is pretty damn awesome.

Bambino! Volume 6, Chapters 54+55

Chapter 54
Chapter 55

What, did you think I'd end up dropping this after an agonizingly long hiatus or something? Well yeah because that's what I've always done Ahem. So, yeah. Back on this along with Shaitane Badi, and who knows what's next. Enjoy.

Mistranslation: It Could Happen to You!

Mangastream's recent translations of Genshiken have been bugging me and though I'll refrain from bitching about their version (I could go on and on--honestly, "the guy with the chonmage"? Seriously?), I thought I'd take a moment to show how a few mistranslated lines can completely change the atmosphere of an entire work.

Slight spoilers for the latest chapter along with the rambling.
