Let's get this started.
I'll be dumping the chapter for as long as I can be bothered. Keep it bumped for other anons to see. It's a speed scan done using public raws, so please overlook any imperfections.
Forgot to mention that this manga is Asano Inio's newest manga since the end of Oyasumi Punpun. It's been going for a little while now, so I figured I would translate a chapter for everyone.
Not even Asano Inio can resist the allure of doing a manga about cute girls doing cute things.
I didn't want to let down the 2 and a half people who may have seen that post.
Give me a little bit and I'll upload it somewhere.
I hope if anyone scans the volume releases in the future, we can get better 2-page spreads. I guess I could have spent time redrawing them, but I'm just not that skilled at redrawing. Maybe Hox or some scanlation group will do volume releases, although I think Hox has a lot on his plate.
I have issues 24 through 27 downloaded so far.
By the time I finish the next chapter, I'll try to come up with a way for people to follow progress without having to stick around /a/ at 3 A.M. I'll use the same tripcode and title in the next thread, so at worst you can look for those.
I actually tried cleaning this page with excessive clone tool usage. Let's just say it didn't go well.
Here it is for comparison. Not even blur could cover my failure.
I'm hoping it will gradually transition into the best Doraemon rip-off ever, eventually winding up back to the beginning of this chapter.
And that's that. Thanks to everyone helping bump this thread. I have some other things to do, so it might take a week or two to finish the next chapter.
>Knee socks and frilly shirt
There's no way it's going to be that lighthearted.
someone mind giving me a little hint on where to get raws? I have googled for Big Comic Spirit Weekly but I can never seem to find the right issues.
Hey, I have cleans of all the chapters up to ch05, OP if you want to work on this, let me know I can redraw/typeset whatever. Also, I have the spreads in this thread stitched up (poorly)
I did this, then saw a spread online that showed a huge box/vent between the two turbine-looking things in the middle
and here's the original. have you ever had a raw so bad you just straight-up removed a color?
>Hello, I was planning on scanlating DDD'sDDD, but I was lacking a translator. I'm working on Ch02 very slowly, but I have clean versions of every chapter released (up to ch05 as of now) currently. If you want me to help out, please email me at email@example.com
posted this in the wrong thread
what do y'all think of the mothership?
real? imagined? some crazy metaphor for something else in the story?
One of the guys from Fantagraphics talked to Nijigahara Holograph's publisher IIRC and then Asano himself. The whole "I want to be a woman" thing was basically a joke that other sites (ANN) reported as being serious.
>Batoto is shit
>Kissmanga is shit
Wish there was a lossless online reader that didn't suck in some way. I just want the convenience of opening fmd and downloading new chapters without having to RSS dozens of scanlator sites.
>Asano's new shit
Asano uses filters and stuff to translate actual photos she's taken into black and white, which she then edits.
Check around 50 minutes in.
>Please use “He.”
>Apparently Asano-sensei said those things in a light hearted way (though I can’t express it well in words). The editor in charge was surprised by how far the ripples have spread.
I don't think it was even something that deeply felt. I read the interview that Matt Thorn posted and he struck me as about as serious as a guy saying "I'm gay for Johnny Depp. No, I mean it, I totally am, man!"
For now, I'll announce any releases there.
Just for fun, here's a tweet from Asano:
"Yeah, I guess people who only buy volume releases wouldn't know who I was talking about if I mentioned Ontan. Ontan is like this! (see image) The first volume will probably go on sale sometime in the fall..."
Thanks for keeping the thread bumped everyone.
It was the case. I was simply stating my first impression. But there were undeniable qualities in this chapter. For example, the way the reveal was done was well-framed and therefore well-done.
