Merry Christmas!

It's still the 25th where I am, so it still counts!

Here's volume 41 of Jojo.


In this one, Josuke and Rohan face off in the game of the century!  It's everyone's favorite Suikoden minigame, Triple Toss! Also they get attacked by the Stand from Speed, which is pretty cool. Josuke is kind of a jerk for not using Crazy Diamond on Rohan's furniture though.

RPS Kid came & went

Here we are at volume 40! We're more than halfway done with part 4 now. Kira's having some trouble adjusting to his new life, and our heroes are having a hard time adjusting to the new crop of Stand users! Read as Rohan almost gets killed by an 11 year-old kid (featuring one chapter in full color!!!), and marvel at the alien invader.


I've been told the next arc, Highway Star, is not to be missed! I guess I'll find out if that's true while I translate it!  Expect it before the year's out - possibly quite a bit before, but we'll see.

April 31st

Hello to all 194 of our loyal readers!  It has come to our attention that our release of volume 39 had a few minor typos and grammatical errors, so we fixed it up with this v2 release.


Hopefully it will be in readable English this time!

As a reminder, we've been doing a few things with our releases lately.  One, we're using Japanese name order and modes of address (mostly).  While we've stopped short of leaving in the honorifics, we've kept people using family or given names as appropriate rather than switching them all to given, and when a name is listed in full it's in family-given order.  Two, since quotation marks are used as intensifiers in Japanese and Araki really loves his quotation marks, we're taking a page from American comics and using a lot of bold.  So when you see seemingly random words and phrases in bold, that's because they were in quotes in the original.  And three, we've decided to preserve the use of fonts in the original as much as possible, so Stands are being given their own fonts whenever they have unique fonts in the Japanese.  If it gets annoying, say something and we'll go back to only using one or two fonts rather than the six that ended up in this volume.

Next volume... I don't even know what's up with the next volume! I haven't even read it yet! I heard there was an alien or something? Whatever! We're taking a short break from our hectic schedule, so don't expect volume 40 before July at the earliest.  But we're definitely going to keep at it until all of part 4 is in good, readable condition! With only 7 volumes left, we'll probably even be done by 2014!  ...maybe!

Where making this hapen

Just finished volume 39. We were expecting to get this out a week or two ago but something came up and two of our layout guys couldn't assist :x I filled in as well as I could, but if you notice a drop in quality, be sure to tell us so we can fix it for the next release. If nothing else we might take a short break from our super quick release schedule, maybe have the next one come out after finals in June/July.

Things are really heating up now! What's in store for our heroes now that Kira is on the offensive!? (I actually don't know! I haven't read any further than this before!!)

Bang Bang Bang

Does anyone else watch nature shows and get way too attached to the animals on them? A full hour spent with them; watching them grow with all their little true to selfnesses and then you just have to say goodbye and hope they're surviving. Really wish someone would make longer timescale tv of this sort of thing, they've already got more personality than most anime characters.

Anyway, check it out!

I still can't see why araki likes shigechi so much..

Thanks for waiting so patiently again.

We found a new typesetter! And he's blatantly a bit of a badass and chews tobacco with his breakfast. Either way we're really glad to have him with.

I'd like to thank - because I have to really - Nurlock, Potato Kujo and Boco for putting in the time in chaotic moments in life. And for all the little words of encouragement (although don't worry about it too much.)

We could also possibly do with an extra typesetter for the future too, if you think you could commit for a good few years and have some knowledge of photoshop send me a quick email here.

Happy New Year!!
