Okay, it’s been a while since the last one. Staff that works on this series (Well me and high8sky) have been busy doing Innocent and that sorta thing. But here we are, volume 21. One of the more memorable matches is in this volume, I hope you all enjoy it.

I’m on volume 26 now with translations (out of 35 volumes) and high8sky is working on volume 22. We’re both gonna try to get as much done as we can before Volume 7 of Innocent comes out about a month from now, at which time we’ll switch to that till it’s done.

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 15

Here’s chapter 15 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

Recently we released a bunch of one-shots by Shimabukuro-sensei. They’re right here if you wanna check them out.

Sorry it’s been so long. Had a lot of other projects going on with Innocent, 3-Gatsu, Jojolion, and Gintama. And 81diver too but that hasn’t been released yet.
I’m hoping to get a few more chapters of this done before the next Innocent volume comes out in about a month.

This chapter’s pretty fun, but it’s mainly a one-off.

JoJolion 71

Check out The Book! It’s a really great novel we released recently that’s a sequel to Part 4 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure!

Ok, and we’re here, chapter 71. The 71st chapter.

If you haven’t heard, with this issue of Ultra Jump there was an ad saying Jojo will have a presence at Jump Festa, including a stage event. Maybe they’ll announce a Part 5 anime there? Who knows…
That’s on the morning of December 16th in Japan.

Volume 17 is also coming out December 19th. So we’ll get on that soon after we finish the HQ version of volume 16.

A lot going on. Anyhow enjoy, everybody!

JoJolion Volume 15 (Ch59-62)

Check out The Book! It’s a really great novel we released recently that’s a sequel to Part 4 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure!

Ok, so here we are at our first volume release in… a number of years now.

If you didn’t see, as we mentioned a couple JoJolion release back, we decided to shift from doing one version of digital magazine raws and then a second version using Ultra Jump physical magazine raws a few weeks later to instead make the second, higher quality, version use volume scans as the raws. The volumes usually contain 4 or 5 chapters and they come out some months after the original magazine chapters come out (Though the exact amount of time from chapters to volume release varies).

Volumes are published on better quality paper and contain nice covers, tables of contents, little extras by the author, and sometimes little adjustments are made. Like little improvements in the art or small changes in a couple of lines. Sometimes names are changed like the Stand ‘Going Underground’ was changed to ‘Born This Way’ early on in the JoJolion. Also Araki usually revises the chapter titles for the volumes. The idea here is we’re moving the resources we had on the physical magazine versions to these volume versions which will come out less frequently and later after the original, lower-quality, digital magazine chapters, but look better and have more and more finalized content in the long run. Generally speaking, volumes are what are meant to be the “archived” version you can get years after they’re originally published. So we think it makes more sense this way.

We’re starting at volume 15 and volume 16 is the newest one which came out in September so we’ll be doing that next (V15 and V16 came out unusually close together. V15 came out in July, V16 came out in September, so we’re sorta doing them together). We’re planning on trying to do the newest volumes as they come out. If we’re all caught up we’ll start moving backwards to V14 and so on. But the priority will be whichever is newest so this sort of replaces doing physical magazine scans. We’ve got a good number of people together who’re working hard on these so hopefully they keep coming out pretty regularly.

Technically this is the 3rd versions of these particular chapters we’ve released now. But, definitely should be the best one. I hope you all enjoy it.

11/8/2017 Edit: Apparently something happened at one of the last stages and the fonts on a couple pages turned into unicode squares somehow. Someone just pointed it out, so we went back, fixed these, spruced up a couple other hard-to-notice things, and reuploaded all of them. The links are all fixed now with the latest version.

Shimabukuro One-Shots Memories with Oda-san Manga!, Halftime, & Jijii 100%

Check out The Book! It’s a really great novel we released recently that’s a sequel to Part 4 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure!

Ok, so here’s 3 one-shots done by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi a.k.a Shimabuu a.k.a the author of Toriko and Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi!!.
These have been delayed a bit because I had Innocent and 3-Gatsu no Lion to focus on. Also the Oda-san manga took a while to find someone to clean it and for them to actually clean it because it has so many redraws.

The first one ran in Shounen Jump issue 2017-33, which came out July 17th 2017, “Memories with Oda-san Manga!”. It was part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, whom Shimabukuro-sensei is friends with. He talked a few experiences with him and it’s also a sorta short autobiography/memoir. It’s good, check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.

The 2nd two are “Halftime” and “Jijii 100%” (Geezer 100%) which ran together in semi-monthly manga Grand Jump issue 2017-19, which came out September 6th 2017. Both are pretty short but they’re both pretty entertaining gag manga that shows Shimabukuro is still totally capable of bringing the spirit and comedic timing he did with Takeshi all those years back.

They’re all pretty quick reads and definitely worth reading. I hope you check them out.

And now that I’ve got some free time, hopefully we’ll get some more Takeshi and 81diver done soon. Enjoy, everybody!

3-Gatsu no Lion (March Comes in Like a Lion) Volume 13


Image Source

Ok, whew.
Well everyone, here’s this year’s 3-Gatsu no Lion volume!
Thanks a ton to Kimkimh for helping with a little of the cleaning/redrawing and Nuengti for all the help proofreading.
Though I did everything else. And it took a while, I’ve been working on this almost every day for a month.
Umino-sensei has gotten into a trend of having MANY chapters but all of them very short. So this is 13 chapters long, but the chapters themselves total only 160-something pages.

But anyhow, I love this series, I hope everyone checks it out and lets other people know about it. Also check out the anime which is airing its 2nd season now.

Well after a good couple of months of doing this and Innocent whenever I wasn’t doing Gintama or JoJolion, I’m finally free.
I’m gonna relax a bit and then get back to work on more Takeshi and 81diver.
