Hey there. Might as well do a storytime for this since the new chapter was published (which is in need of translation + editing).

>Legend has it that if you take your guitar and stand at a crossroads at the witching hour, the devil will appear. He'll grab your instrument, play a song, and hand it back to you. You'll walk away an expert bluesman, but you'll have to pay the price: your immortal soul.

Hiramoto also works on Prison School.

Try reading the OP again.

>>113269354
Uh, I thought everything got translated, it's just that the story got cancelled because not enough people were reading. So the mangaka went and made Prison School cause sex sells.

Just finished this manga earlier today.
It's great and also the only manga I've completed since I'm not too big on them, but this has definitely changed my opinion.

I am so excited to hear it's being continued.
How soon does translation + editing usually take?

As long as it takes.

Days to years. There's no usually when it comes to scanlation.

Grow up dude. If you want a quick and dirty translation, look around. Prison School threads are all about translating in a manner just good enough to understand what's going on.

You have no shame either for posting image in the story time thread.

What I always found funny is that Illuminati didn't scan the first two English-released volumes.
>>
>>
>>113270682
>You sound like a fucking cunt.
You just sound ignorant to manga scanlation. Depending on who chooses to work on it there can be a while before we get decent quality scans. Judging by the mangaka's art skill there are probably a lot of redraws and editing that has to be done, and as something recent with decent files ripped as soon as it was published it already has a better chance of being worked on than the god knows how many series that have been left behind over the years.

I own the first volume in English and that coloured page of the devil going hey bro is just completely black, you can barely make out a thing. The lack of colour pages really kills it.

That's what you get for buying English publications. They are cheap asses who just turn colored pages grayscale.

What? A new chapter of Me and the Devil Blues? FUCKING REALLY?! Dear lord what is next a new HotD chapter? Shit I loved this manga you have a raw or something?

Well, I haven't been on /a/ for the past months

I'm really enjoying this. Never bothered to pick it up because historical based manga were hit or miss for me, but this is pretty charming

He drew tits long before Prison School.

What part of the word "cancelled" you don't understand? Also, he was drawing tits before Blues.

Actually the quality stayed about the same...
The content was better in the first part with shitty repetitive sweat ecchi; once the story should have ended...the content watered down and was replaced by more comedic/better done ecchi.
Sans hana and a few select golden scenes in the first part.

This series gets crazy in volume 3+4. It is the most intense manga I've read. It literally took my breath away sometimes. Nice to see it getting more exposure.

The new chapter seems like it serves as kind of a recap and you can tell he's been away from this art-style for a while. I'm really excited about this, though.

To add onto this: Hiramoto is great at creating a tense harrowing atmosphere. Like, you can feel the fear in the characters.

As a musician this made me really happy when i first read it. Damn, should have kept the volumes i bought back then.

Robert Johnson is from my home toen, Friars Point, MS...so is Conway Twitty....and ways thanks for the storytime OP.
>>
>>
>>113278103
Yeah, I love picking it up off my shelf and admiring the art and re-reading some of my favorite scenes. I think there's a good chance it will be re-released, though, by Kodansha. It should definitely have better paper and color pages as that's kind of the norm nowadays. I would definitely buy a new edition of it. I wonder if it will publish regularly after January when the next chapters come out. Two manga at once is ridiculous but Takehiko Inoue does it with REAL and Vagabond.

Waaaiiiit a second. I read this scene completely wrong when I first read it. I thought it was a flashback showing Bonnie's death but it's actually a flashforward? Damn. Interesting to see how/why RJ does that to him.
