Bambino! Volume 15, Chapter 155

Mediafire Download

Megu and Eri both call Etsuya "Ecchan" but honestly I don't think it works very well so I took it out. In retrospect, I should have taken out Odacchi as well. Actually, if I could go back in time I'd do this manga without honorifics entirely--I don't really think it needs them. Oh well.

Next arc starts next chapter.

Enjoy.

  1. We need to find a way to clone you, there's a couple of series that could use your work ethics, quality and speed.

    1. I wish I could clone myself, too. That way I could tell myself to work on a series and then I and I would both lazy about complaining about being tired and not getting enough sleep. In the end we would get 50% less work done than I would before the cloning process.

      Sadly chances are high this is exactly what would actually happen.

    2. Naw, we'd build little domes like in the Truman show! You'd never know there were two of you, although the problem remains how to get the two of you working on different series. orz

  4. Is there a sequel to this? bambino secondo or something?

    You do a freaking awesome job with this. Thank you so much.

    1. Yes, Bambino Secondo is ongoing. Hopefully someone good picks it up.

    2. I can't but quietly hope that you might have a change of mind and do secondo at whatever the pace.

      Honestly are there that many good scanslators that bother to do quality redraws like you do? Or just accept any shit raw... orz

    3. The only way I'd consider it is if it completed so I had an idea of where it would end, and I had someone to do the editing for me. 15 volumes of this really took a lot out of me and I don't think I could do it again.

      Honestly? I'm not really that good at redrawing (and generally terrible at drawing in general). I don't even know how to use photoshop's pen tool. My redrawing is mostly just brute forcing stuff and judiciously bullshitting what I can't handle; I'm a translator first and an editor second, and most of my editing know-how is simply stuff I've picked up through the years piecemeal. There are some guys out there who actually know how to draw. Man, that makes me jealous sometimes.

  6. I like they didn´t show a sad backflash story for Etsuya. He just went mafioso to live like a king, no emo scenes because of Eri.

    Also, what´s up with Ban running like a maniac to the port? That came out of nowwhere.

    Thanks for the hard work.

    1. That's what I like about Etsuya. He's a bad dude and he's perfectly okay with being a bad dude, because being a bad dude got him money and girls. The only thing he regrets is that he couldn't face Eri like he was, but thanks to Ban even that wasn't a problem. So he's perfectly fine with things the way they are.

      I think Ban runs to let off stress. He's done that before, complete with shouting like a loon.

  7. im irriated that you decided withhold a page in this chapter from us the readers. makes me wonder wether or not youve done that in the previous volumes. not cool man.

    1. ...Seriously? Seriously? I don't ask for thanks here, or donations or any of the even more outrageous fucking bullshit that some scanlation groups will demand of their readers, and this is what I get? The thought process that must have gone into this fucking baffles me. Do you honestly think so fucking little of me that you are willing to jump to the completely unfounded conclusion that I chose to and have in the past chosen to fuck you over, not by ignorance but by malicious choice? Do you have any idea of how fucking insulting that is, to insinuate that I have spent, at this point, literally weeks of my life not to share something I enjoyed with people who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to experience it, but instead to deliberately hoodwink them? I'm sorry for the language but that that honestly makes me angrier than anything I've heard while working on Bambino. Fuck that noise.

    2. OnionFried seems like someone with a loose screw, please don't let it get to you. Unfortunately there's no law about typing with a cock in your mouth or else this guy wouldn't be here bitching.

      I know Spore gets his raws from another source than the 2 page ones circulating around the internet, so a page might be missing, but I went through chapter 155 two times now and all the pages are there.

  8. I've got to say this much, despite the fact you say you are lazy Spore, I am inclined to think otherwise. You really have worked hard on Bambino and you know, that is fairly obvious. It's an honor to read your translation because I've noticed time and time again, your impressive attention to details.

    Not only that, but I feel as if you go out of your way to make sure when you translate, you chose the font(s) that really make the sentences stand out. That is some pretty impressive work to be able to do that.

    In addition, you've proven time and time again that you have a clear understanding of Japanese and I think it's fair to say Italian as well. Fact of the matter is, by reading Bambino, now I know some Italian words.

    There have been times when I saw a new release of Bambino and even if I was having a bad day, my day suddenly became much better. So I'd like to say thanks for all your hard work. It's not easy translating manga, at least not at the professional level you do, but it's a pleasure to be able to read this manga and actually become more cultured as well.

    I don't care what anyone states, you are anything but lazy, but in fact a very hard worker that really knows how to translate manga in a professional, yet enjoyable manner.

    1. I have pretty high standards and take for granted what some people might think of as unnecessary or overdoing it. When I say that I'm lazy I mean that there's a lot of stuff I could be doing but don't because I can't justify the time and effort required to do so, like sound effects, or actually taking the time to get a fluent Italian speaker's input on the Italian used in the manga (as an aside, I'm about as good at Italian as I am at the African tongue-clicking language).

      I really am very lazy though. If I had my way I'd just sleep 12 hours a day and loaf around for 12 more before going back to sleep. I honestly don't know why I scanlate.

  9. i felt twitter was the appropriate place for me to apologise but the damn thing would take me forever. i made a terrible half-ass misread whenyou said "Megu and Eri both call Etsuya "Ecchan" but honestly I don't think it works very well so I took it out" now at the time i misread that entire sentence and quickly came to the conclusion that you decided upon yourself in a ignorant manner to keep away a page from your fellow readers. i was gonna explain to you my believe that an author which is you btw always welcomes honest comments and opinions from his/her readers, but if i handt decided to reread everthing i would of dug myself a huge hole if i handt realised you were referring to page 12 of chapter 154 and the 1st page and this chapter. i tell what i know a place where you can get raws for bambino but i never download em cause i know i can head over to mangafox.com or mangareader.net and read me some translated manga. its a terrible mistake i made and i admit it to the fullest. i am very sorry.

    1. It's alright. Looking at it now I can see how you might have drawn those conclusions. I was stressed and sleep-deprived when I blew up and I'm sorry for taking that out on you.
