Updates and Changes

First, I want to give a few HOTD updates for anyone who doesn't keep up with that stuff. Chapter 29 will be released in the April issue of Dragon Age available March 8. Triage X is also supposed to be in this issue, and I may scan it if nobody else is doing it. Volumes 1 and 2 of the Full Color Edition were released today, and they look pretty good from what I've seen. I may upload a few sample scans when mine are delivered, but I'll be working on the full version with HOTDcups at Torpedo Tits. Lastly, the English version of Volume 1 has been released, and Volumes 2-5 will be released sporadically until next January. I encourage evryone to buy them when they become available. Personally, I prefer scanlation over official translation in most cases, but I'm still buying all of the English Volumes in addition to all of the Japanese just to show my support for the series.

I've made a few small changes to the blog. However, there's a larger change that I will need everybody's help with. I've decided to change the name of the blog, or rather give it an official name. Please vote for the name you like in poll at the top right of the page. Keep in mind that this will just help influence me because I am indecisive. I may not pick the name with the most votes.

By the way, I added a "Gallery" page to the blog. Go there to see some sample images I posted from my projects.

Secret Box - No Translations

It turns out the translations for the Secret Box won't be ready for a while, so I decided to post it without them. The only problem is I already removed the original text, so the manga has neither English nor Japanese text. I'm sure most of you probably wouldn't be able to read it anyway. Some of you may not like this, but I really don't have time to start over from the raw scans.

Here it is:

The file is a bit larger than normal. This is because I made the pages relatively large since the booklet is at least three times larger than the regular volumes. The download is slower, but the page quality is a lot better.

I probably won't be doing anything new for a while. The next release is the Full Color Editions for volumes 1 and 2, but I won't be doing my own scanlation of those. HOTDcups is starting on them right away, so I'll be helping him. I'll give you an update when I know when it may be completed.
