Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 17 (Wide-Ban 1 Complete)


Here’s chapter 17 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.

Ok, with this we have finally finished Wide-Ban 1!
For those that don’t know, a Wide-Ban is a kinda deluxe, repackaged edition that came out later after the series had ended. That’s why it’s nearly 400 pages long. There are 13 in total, so we’re 1/13th of the way through the series now! Well, that took a while, over a year now, but I’m really glad this project is moving. I’ve been really excited about doing this project for a while and it’s been hard to find time on it, so I’m really glad we finally made it to this milestone. Should be starting on Wide-Ban 2 pretty soon, so look out for that!
Included in this is the extra pages from the original volumes 1 and 2 which make up Wide-Ban 1. That includes the between-chapter little essays Shimabukuro wrote back when he was first starting out.
We’re also releasing the whole Wide-Ban as one file here, since it’s all done. It includes all the chapters, also we added the color pages to chapter 1 we got after we scanlated it.

Hope you enjoy everyone! I can’t wait till we get to some of the stuff coming up in this series, it’s got tons of heart and great comedy.

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 16

Here’s chapter 16 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.

This is another pretty fun one-off chapter. And with that we’ve just got one chapter left until we’re finally done with Wide-Ban 1! Which has taken over a year now I think.

This chapter had color pages in the original Jump magazine but we haven’t been able to find any version of them, so this release just has the black-and-white versions. There’ve been a few pages like that so far where we haven’t been able to get the color pages. They were never reproduced in any kind of permanent archive, so to get them we’d need someone to scan the original Shounen Jump magazines from 1997-2002.

If anyone has one of the old issues of Jump and wants to help us out by scanning the color pages, let me know at kewl0210@gmail.com. We have almost all the covers, because there are archives of those around. And we have a FEW color pages just from them being posted someone online (Usually the auction site Mandarake), but there’s no big public archive of them, and they’re not printed anymore. So if I wanted to buy them from one of those Japanese auction sites it would cost a lot just to buy one to get it imported to the US, and it’s not really worth it for just a couple of color pages. But if someone has access to old Jump magazines form that era and wants to help out, we’d really appreciate it. We’re trying to get as many as we can.

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.

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!

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 14

There’s barely any fanart of this series since it ended so long ago and just posting the Wide-Ban cover every time’s getting dull so maybe I’ll try just posting a panel or splash page form the actual chapter in these release posts. I’ll try to avoid spoilers.

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!

Here’s chapter 14 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

Enjoy everybody! I’ll make it to 1 a week one of these weeks!

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!

Here’s chapter 13 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

Ended up being busier than I thought so it’s been like 2 and a half weeks rather than one, but here’s the next one. Hopefully next one goes smoother.
Okay, now we get introduced to the GIRLS in Takeshi’s class. Woo! They’re pretty good characters though this chapter’s largely just an introduction. Hope you all enjoy.

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 12

takeshi_wb01

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!

Here’s chapter 12 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

Okay, now we finally get a proper introduction to everyone’s favorite circle-dog, Kojirou!

For this chapter we included the best quality versions of the Shounen Jump cover and color pages this chapter originally ran with that we could find.
Once we finish Wide-Ban 1 we’ll add in the ones for Chapter 1 and any others we find that we missed originally (I’m also planning to add some extras like the tankoubon volume covers and extra pages from the tankoubons). Just a note on that, we’re trying to find the best quality versions we can on various archival sites. In theory I could probably import the old 90’s copies of Jump from auction sites that have them on sale, but that’s really expensive and time consuming for just a couple of color pages, so I’m not going to go that far. But short of that I’d like to find as many of these as I can. If anybody has better versions of any color pages from Takeshi, let me know and send them to me at kewl0210@gmail.com.

Now that The Book is done I’m really hoping to get these out a bit more regularly. Though remember, these are all really wordy and gag-heavy (on a per-page and per-chapter basis) which takes a while to translate and I’m balancing this with a full-time job and other projects. My goal is around 1 a week for now.

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 11

takeshi_wb01

Here’s chapter 11 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

Ok, with this chapter we finally finish the ~Proof of a Leader~ Arc! The first non-one-off chapter series of Takeshi.

We’ve actually finished all the chapters in Volume 1 now. Volume 1 actually ends at chapter 9. But the Wide-Bans, being wider sorta-deluxe versions, have more chapters in them. Wide-Ban 1 has 17 chapters in it. My plan at the moment is at the end we’ll release it as one big zip to download and I’ll also include the extra pages from volume 1-2 and the color pages I’ve managed to find for that. (We would’ve had the color pages in chapter 1 but we didn’t have good quality versions at the time, which we’ve managed to track down since).

I’m working hard on finishing editing the Jojo novel The Book at the moment (It’s about 100,000 words I’m checking through, making sure it has no translation errors, typos, and all sounds as well phrased as possible). But after that I hope to get more of this done pretty soon. My goal is to get them done around weekly. It’s a bit too hectic for me to do that at the moment though, given how wordy most of the chapters are.

Prince of Laughter Penpenpen (One-Shot by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi) and Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! 10

Ok, at last, this one’s done. Goddamn this took a while.
Sp for those that don’t know, this is a one-shot by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi (author of Toriko and Takeshi) that he published in the kids/kodomo manga magazine Saikyou Jump back in April. They don’t have a digital magazine or anyone that scans it so I had to seek out the magazine and scan it at the time and it’s been a project on my backlog for a while now (This actually came out like a week before Chingiri but that one was easier so I did it first). Largely because it’s a 30-page gag manga, and gag manga are known for having lots of text and lots of jokes on each page. Meaning it’s pretty translation heavy and time consuming. Then Joeabandonedmine was hard at work cleaning and typesetting it, which is a pretty lengthy task on its own.

Anyhow, at first I thought it was kinda dumb, and it is aimed towards kids, but it actually makes good use of Shimabukuro-sensei’s sense of humor. And it’s pretty interesting what he did with a simple premise. Check it out.

Also we’ve got the next chapter of Takeshi all done! It’s a good one. Really emotional and it’s starting up a lot of what makes the series really good. I’m hoping we can keep up a good pace with this series and keep getting it out. This is the 2nd to last chapter of the “Proof of a Leader Arc”. I’ll be working on getting the next one done sometime soon.

We’ve got a lot of other stuff going. The Book is being edited now, we’re working on the new JoJolion, and apparently Shimabukuro-sensei did a 15-page one shot about his memories with Oda-sensei (of One Piece) in this week’s Jump, which we may work on maybe. The next Innocent volume comes out in late August and the next 3-Gatsu no Lion volume comes out in October. So there’s a lot going on, and I really wanna get some of this stuff done while I’ve got time so I don’t get overwhelmed later. Hopefully when all this stuff’s done we can work on a new series, as there’s a few I’ve wanted to do for a while.

Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! Ch. 9

takeshi_wb01

Here’s chapter 9 of Takeshi! Here’s the intro I wrote about the series if you haven’t seen it yet.

(If anyone’s wondering, there’s almost no fanart of this series because it was popular before Pixiv existed. It ended in 2005. And most fanart I can find is mostly filled with characters that haven’t appeared yet and I don’t want to post spoilers.)

Ok, so now finally we get the introduction of Bonchuu! He’s here and he’s definitely not Toriko.

Sorry it’s taken so long to get this up. I mentioned it in other posts but I’ve been focusing all my extra time and energy on getting The Book done, which is a long put-off and long delayed project. I finally finished translating it and it’s now being edited. I’m hoping we get it 100% done and released soon. With that major project done I’ll have time to get Takeshi chapters done more frequently. My goal is to get ~1 a week done but we’ll see how that turns out.
