From the depths of despair…
Ooookay, all done with this.
Rufi’s back to working on Gintama this week. I think Jfreek should get his raw for Ultra Jump soon and we can start working on that.
Things look like they’re going pretty okay, right?
Gama took a while to clean this so it took a while. And I’ve been totally stressed out this week…
Anyhow, there’s no Gintama this week, so I’ve finally got some time to sleep, yay.
Edit: One of the pages was missing somehow. No idea how, because I had typeset it and everything. It’s fixed now. Links all updated.
Okay, so, this bears explanation.
Doubutsu no Kuni is a manga by Makoro Raiku, the author of Konjiki no Gash!!. Me and my group Anime-Destiny that did the later anime and manga for Gash started working on this when it started back in 2009. But, after a little ways into it we no longer had enough people to work on it. I translated up to chapter 13, but we didn’t have any cleaners and I didn’t have time to do typsetting myself. And nobody volunteered, so we couldn’t finish it. But recently, a couple people working on Jojolion volunteered to help finish this volume. So here’s volume 2 of Doubutsu no Kuni, which took 2 years and a few months to complete. I’m shifting it over from Anime-Destiny here to Hi Wa Mata Noboru because this group is generally my group for manga. I hadn’t started the group back when we did volume 1 of DnK and Gash, and I’d rather keep the media separate even though I run both groups. Especially when mostly it’s people in this group that are working on it. The plan is to try to get the guys working on Jojolion to occasionally work on this to get the project moving at some fair pace. Up to volume 9 are out right now. I had already translated up to the end of volume 4 since 2010, but we haven’t had anyone to work on it. Getting dedicated people to work on projects is usually the hardest task, generally much harder than actually doing the work. So hopefully this project will get going a little.
Komatsu the man…
I’ve been waiting about a year for a place to use that image…
Okay, this is done. Weird schedule this week, because Jump’s street date is early this week, so we got the chapter a day early and it was hard to scramble everyone to work on it all of a sudden.
I’m gonna go work on Gintama.
