Ok, so this is Jump issue 4-5, a combined-week issue. So either next week or the week after, there’ll be no Jump. If there is one next week, then there won’t be one for 2 weeks. If there isn’t one next week, then there’ll be one the following week, but not the week after. In other words there are 2 weeks off but sometimes we get them in a row or alternating. It depends on how Jump distributes it this year.

Apparently it was supposed to say “Kintamandrill” in Bambuina’s description a couple chapters back, 303. Shimabukuro-sensei wrote in the table of contents comments last issue that it was a typo on his part when it was changed to something different, uh “Kintamandras Baboon”. It’ll probably be fixed in the volumes.

Ring Volume 1

Wha…?
Ring_v01_ch001_pg020
Ring_v01_ch000_pg000a

All right. So, I can now finally present Ring volume 1. Man, this is another thing that was a really long time coming.
So lemme introduce this, this series is called Ring. Not the horror movie. It’s written by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi, author of Toriko. It’s a short series, only 3 volumes long, written in 2004-2005 in Super Jump (a biweekly seinen magazine) after the end of Shimabukuro’s first series, Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi which ran in Shounen Jump. Takeshi was a really huge, long series that was one of the most popular series in Jump during its heyday. So I’d like to maybe work on that series at some point after this one is done, because working on a series like the kind Shimabukuro-sensei does is tons of work (and we don’t have tons of people) plus this one is shorter so we’re doing this one first. I scanned this volume back in 2012, but haven’t been able to make much of any progress until the last few months because I was always busy with tons of other stuff. We’re gonna really try to get through the other two volumes in not too too long. But it’s just me and high8sky working on this, so it’ll depend on both of our schedules and I tend to severely overwork myself anyhow.

Uh, basically what it’s about. It’s a sports manga about a sport that Shimabukuro-sensei made up. It’s really good. The comedy’s really great, and a lot of the style from Takeshi really shines through here. I think a lot of stuff that was in this manga ended up being the basis for a lot Shimabukuro-sensei used in Toriko, too. So give it a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
