TV-animation Complete File Chapter 2 - Orcus

I got this one done a bit quicker than I expected.

This chapter is called "Orcus," and it mostly contains profiles and information for locations, vehicles, and weapons. There's also a nice selection of anime illustrations from various magazines and other stuff. Many of them were in the HOTD art book, so those of you who downloaded my very first release (or got the raws from Torpedo Tits) will recognize them. The last page is a list of zombie movies, games, and books. It basically says you should supplement the anime with these things. Some of them are directly referenced in the anime and manga, and I guess the others were inspirations for the anime staff or the series in general. For those of you who don't know, "Bio Hazard" is the Japanese title of Resident Evil.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but my scanner isn't quite big enough for the huge size of the Complete File, so a little portion of the top and bottom of each page is cut off. Nothing important is lost, though. I think I should get the next chapter out in roughly the same amount of time as this one, which was around three weeks. I'm moving on to Triage X Volume 4 now, and I won't start on the next chapter of this one until that's done.

I'll try to keep you updated on how Triage X is coming along, but I probably won't say anything more about it until my part of the editing is done. That's all I'll say about it for now. See you later.

Triage X Chapter 24 and Maken-Ki! Chapter 47 Raws

Both of these are really exciting chapters. It's too bad we probably won't get to read either one for a while.

Triage X Chapter 24 raw:

Maken-Ki! Chapter 47 raw:

The epic battle continues in Maken-Ki! with a focus this time on Himegami and her fight. In Triage X, we learn a little about Dr. Mochizuki's past and how he is connected to Oriha and her mother. I'll be excited to read both of these chapters (and all of the untranslated ones for that matter) when they finally are translated. I don't know right now how fast we'll get Triage X done, and Maken-Ki! is an even bigger mystery. I would almost prefer that Hidoi just drop the series so someone else can pick it up. They don't seem to be making any progress. I would offer to help them clean if I weren't so busy. If anyone has any experience cleaning/redrawing manga and wants to see scanlation of the series continue, go to the Hidoi forums and offer to help.

The next thing you'll see from me will probably be the second chapter of the Complete File. It shouldn't take too long since it's way shorter than the first chapter. See you soon.

Monthly Dragon Age - May (4/9/2012)

There's not much to say about this month's issue. First of all, Highschool of the Dead will not be returning next month, and there is no information yet on when it might be back.

I'll have raws for Triage X Chapter 24 and Maken-Ki! Chapter 47 posted within a few days. I'll probably wait until I finish both of them this time and post them together. Look for them soon.

Triage X has been licensed by Yen Press if you haven't already heard. This means XLG will no longer be scanlating the series. Since Yen Press won't even begin releasing volumes until later this year, they presumably won't release Volume 4 for a year or more. HOTDcups and I have been talking, and we will be picking the series up. I won't give any more details just yet. I'll give you more information after we get started on it.
