Ok, so quick update on stuff.

I finished translating The Book, finally, after 5 and a half years. And now it’s in the editing process, which is the last step before releasing it. I’m having a couple people read over it and help me edit it and improve some of the earlier parts which I did back in late 2011 early 2012 so the phrasing and such isn’t as good as my current level. Speaking of which, anyone with novel editing experience who wants to volunteer to help with that, let me know. My email’s

Since I finished that I’m gonna try to get back to doing Takeshi chapters on a regular basis. Sorry it’s been so slow going, I’d really like to get them done regularly, but I haven’t really had the time between The Book, Jojolion, 81diver stuff, Innocent stuff, and Gintama every week.

I also wanna get that other Shimabukuro one-shot out soon that came out a few months ago in Saikyo Jump.

Also, the next 81diver volume should be out pretty soon. I’ve translated up to V23, so now that I’m finishing up The Book I’m hoping to get back to translating that series soon, as I’ve still got 12 volumes left.

Also, I did an interview with Kotaku about scanlating. If you’re interested in reading that sort of thing, it’s here.

Though they interviewed a bunch of people besides me, and most of the answers I gave weren’t used. Also I don’t think the title is very good, I don’t think most people they interviewed were “having trouble going legit”. That’s just NJT, the founder of Mangahelpers who has been trying to do that.
If you’re interested in the full response I gave to Kotaku’s questions, I made a pastebin for it here.

  1. thx for this week releases of gintama
    I think that title’s on kotaku kind of inappopriate because many of early 90’s scanlation is fan based not pirated

  2. Sigh. Of course Kotaku would do something like that. The writer isn’t anywhere near as bad as the horrible people that work there, tho. So that’s one positive thing.

    I just could never trust Kotaku, lol.

  3. Another great chapter full ot tension and feels. Sensei really knows how to tug at my heartstrings.

    Thank you so much!^^

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    Unfortunately apart from “funny” post I never find any of kotaku article to represent the actual situation. Also njt probably not the most trusted individual, he tried to sell off the scanlators, anyone remember the his business plan to viz that was leaked on 2009.

    • He wasn’t trying to sell them off he was trying to create an option for scanlators to get paid for their work. He’s still trying to do that in some respects, but the industry doesn’t want to do it.
