Full Color Edition 3 and 4 Preview

I just got Volumes 3 and 4, ao I did a few quick scans like last time. Just like the last sample scans, I didn't do much editing on these. I just did enough so they don't look like they're fresh off the scanner. Anyway, here's the link:

I'm sure you all know this by now, but in case you don't, Chapter 29 was released on Torpedo Tits a couple weeks ago. It's a good chapter; one of the best in a while. Volume 6 should be released there fairly soon as well, so I'll update when that happens. Work on FCE Volume 1 has begun, but it's going to be a bit tougher than the B&W volumes. If you have any experience with scanlation or any experience with Photoshop or any other image editing software, please go to Torpedo Tits and contact HOTDcups. We need all the help we can get.

Other than updates, I probably won't be posting anything new until I get Volume 7, which is in about a month. I'll see you guys then.

Secret Box 2.0 (Raw)

Let me begin by saying the Secret Box is still not translated. I had some free time, so I decided to put the Japanese text back in the manga. I didn't really like releasing it originally without text, but I didn't have time to fix it until now. I made a few other very minor edits, but the text is really the only noticeable change. Whether you were happy with the last version or not, I suggest updating your archives with this one. Here it is:

Since I've been asked about Volume 7, I guess I'll let you know officially what my plans are for it. I have the OVA Special Edition pre-ordered, and I will be scanning at least parts of it. I haven't decided if I'm going to do the entire volume by myself, and if I did it would take at least a month, but I will start scanning the cover, color pages, and other extra stuff as soon as I get it (around April 30). I may even throw in some screenshots from the OVA for you anime fans. I'll post more information as the release date draws nearer.

Speaking of volumes, Volume 6 should be finished soon. I can't give you an exact time for sure, but I can say that most of the editing is done, and I think the translation is done. I'll let you know when it becomes available. Expect it to be far better than my version.

Full Color Edition Preview

I got my Full Color Edition Volumes 1 and 2 a few days ago, and I did a few quick scans to give you a preview. I didn't spend much time editing, so they aren't the best quality, but that's why they're just sample pages. Here they are:

The actual scanlation will be done by Torpedo Tits. I'll be helping, but I'm not sure when they will be done. If you don't feel like waiting, I definitely suggest buying the FCE volumes. They exceeded my expectations, and they're well worth the money. If you want to buy Volumes 1 and 2 and/or pre-order 3 and 4, you can do so at

Thank you to those of you who voted in the poll. I've changed the official name of the blog to "Scans of the Dead". It's the name I was leaning towards anyway, so I'm happy with it. I think I'm going to reset the poll with a new question and possibly have a new poll every week.
