Why we can’t have nice things

reallyJust a head’s up, some bot is launching DMCA takedowns for the Fate Kaleid stuff which some bot at Mediafire is automatically disabling the files links for because Mediafire sucks. Use the mirrors, or use the Force to find alternate downloads.

I’ve been sitting on this for a couple of weeks, apologies to stray and you, our devoted readers. I’d like to say that I’ve been busier than usual, but to be honest, I’m just not one for working solo, and when you get right down to it, what keeps groups going is mostly the social aspect, since reader feedback is usually nonexistent, which isn’t a criticism, it’s just the way things are.

SZS 295 has also been rotting in the queue for weeks, mostly because having to edit the wiki is mendokusai, but I’m going to try and get that out in the next week or so.

For your convenience, I’ve also batched up vol. 2 as a single zip here: >> Azazel vol. 2 batch <<

Was on vacation for a couple of weeks, so pipeline kind of dried up here, and stray is moving at the end of the month, so not likely to see much activity here for a couple more weeks, please wait warmly, suimasen.

Since this is also my blog now, here is a photo from my trip.

Welcome to Suimasen's closet

Welcome to Suimasen’s closet

We’re introduced to Kōtarō Dōchin in this chapter, a kid with the personality of Azazel-san himself. Voiced in the anime by Ryōko Shiraishi, one of my favorites, who sadly has been mostly cast in dreck the past year… but I digress.

Stupid and Contagious (Joshi 41)

by slyborg
We can't believe it either...

We can’t believe it either…

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Kōji Kumeta to bring you some Kōji Kumeta+Yasu. I was randomly reading the Vol. 6 Joshiraku tankōbon and found this chapter amusing since it features zombies and Kukuru dual-wielding and randomly decided to scanlate it. This is not to be taken as indicative of a trend, since we’re a zombie scan group just waiting for that last head shot. Shop smart, shop S(uimasen)-Mart!

TL Notes
[Translator: slyborg Typesetter: slyborg Proofreader: pseu]

I may, or may not, do up some TL Note pages for Joshi if I continue doing more chapters, but in the interim a couple of quick notes.

  • The title in Japanese, 風邪の神送信 kaze no kami soushin is a play on 風邪の神送り, kaze no kami okuri, meaning, ‘sending off a cold caused by the spirits’. A kamiokuri is an exorcism; it was believed in ancient times that sickness was caused by evil spirits, and by sending them away, the sickness would go away as well. Soushin means to send in the sense of being transmitted; it’s the label on the ‘message send’ feature of a Japanese mobile phone.
  • The kind of odd mention of “Sid Vicious Yasu” on the final page refers to this Tweet by Yasu in which he announces that he feels the need for a last name for his handle, and decides to hold a contest to pick one, with an autographed drawing by Kumeta as a prize. The winner was “Sid Vicious” (-_-) hence he is now “Sid Vicious Yasu” on his official Twitter.

My other comment on this chapter is that it actually doesn’t seem like something Kumeta would write, and in fact comes off a lot like a Hokkenshitsu chapter. Kind of wonder if it wasn’t either Yasu himself or one of Kumeta’s assistants that actually ghostwrote this one (and others). Perks of being an established mangaka, ne.

GT claims he’s going to do the, like, 5 edits needed to finish Yumeko. But he, like all Euros, hates freedom  and those chapters will never see the light of day T_T
