Swan Song (KK 54 & 55)

Just like a fine Castella...

Just like a fine Castella…

As part of my job as group janitor, I’ve been finishing up various leftover work people have left lying around. Chapter 55 got done at least six months ago, but was pending on 54, which got stalled behind 9000 animated GIFs of Joshiraku. In terms of relative popularity, this was probably the correct decision, but I dislike untidiness. KK 55 was actually animated in one of the 2011 OVA episodes, KK 54 is just all wet.

Barring the sudden appearance of another translator and typesetter out of nowhere, this marks the end of our efforts on Katte ni Kaizō. We have 5 additional scripts translated for chapters animated as part of the aforementioned OVAs, if another group would like these, please contact us.

Karn Evil 6 (KK OVA Ep. 6)

by slyborg

So long, and thanks for all the insanity.

Well, it’s been a year since the first volume of the Katte ni Kaizō OVAs came out, so to celebrate, I decided to actually finish this :/ Guess it’s a good time to wind up loose ends around here…

So all props to our intrepid translator Umin, who decided to tackle the daunting task of translating 15 chapters worth of KK in order to produce our scripts. She’s singlehandedly translated more Kōji Kumeta into English than any translator in the world, and only became slightly insane in the process. Special honorable mention to meki, the Chaos That Crawls Up To You With A Taco, who successfully agitated the start of this project and then decided to have a real life after successfully defeating mandoric.

I’d like to say it’s been fun, but solo subbing comes closest to repeatedly smacking yourself in the head with a brick – it feels really good when you stop. Still, I hope somebody has enjoyed our work here, and if SHAFT ever decides to do more Kumeta, I will wait warmly with everyone for someone else to sub it… 😉

1080p up in a few, since I just discovered that Zero-Raws cleverly muxed the Ep 5 audio with Ep 6, so I have to remux this with my audio and resync it. Being fansubber is suffering…

Staff Credits
Umin – Translation  – Only harassed me very occasionally as to why it was taking six months to sub a 24 minute OVA.
slyborg – :Stuff:  – Entirely useless

Special honorable mention to ReimuHakurei, who volunteered to do karaoke on the insert song, but I made an executive decision not to bother since the song is retarded. Since I don’t have TL Notes up for this yet, let’s just cover that bit right here.

The song is actually “Dokkidoki Love Mail” by Matsuura Aya, a product of the idol factory Hello! Project. PV here. The shopping district sign in the background of the insert song segment is called “Matsuura Shopping Street”, and a building sign references another song by her ” Chuuburira “. Basically, somebody at SHAFT apparently has a major jones for this girl (-_-) Also, Shinbo confirmed for better framing than the average music PV director in Japan.

Oh. In case you don’t get the omake bit at the end, which I didn’t at first, either :/ It’s a reference to Kumeta’s leaving Shogakukan for Kodansha to do SZS 😀

2wei is next on the agenda, I will be attempting to bankai and get the rest of the series done before 3rei comes out … oh look, here’s the July Comp Ace with … Fate/kaleid PRISMA Illya 3re1! Ch. 1 (-___-)

Update: 1080p links are up.

The Mediocre Gift Pile of Manga

by suimasenscans

This is the face of abject failure.

Well, I set my sights a little too high in my post the other day. Not even close to what I hoped to get going. And as the clock winds down on the Old Year in the World’s Greatest Timezone, I figure it’s probably time to just go ahead and post what we have.

First up is Kaizo chapter 53, which I originally planned to post on the 26th. Why? It’s about phantom holidays, and I figured that Boxing Day pretty much counts as a phantom holiday. May as well be around these parts.

KK Chapter 53

[Translator: Umin; Typesetter: Oyashiro; Proofreader: IO]

I tried my hardest to get done with the primary goal, which was to get done with volume 23 and be ready to post a batch by Monday or Tuesday. The latter goal still may be met, but I still have all of SZS 230 to typeset, so that’s not going to be ready until at least tomorrow evening, and more likely Monday. These are all from June/July 2010, so they probably seem a little bit out of season. Unless you’re already pining for the days of summer to return. Me, I’m just hoping for some snow to make things interesting.

SZS Chapter 225

SZS Chapter 226

SZS Chapter 227

SZS Chapter 228

SZS Chapter 229

[Translator: Umin; Typesetter: Oyashiro; Proofreaders: Slyborg and IO]

Getenrou chapter 2 is only half finished, so it’ll probably be a couple days on that. Nomit was also working on Azazel-san, but he seems to have come down with the sickness, so it’ll have to wait until he’s feeling a little better, which should be a few days. Sly is also working on F/K 2wei 18, should be ready in the same timeframe. Oh well, hope you’re all enjoying the new year already.

(Resolving to be a better typesetter since 2009)

The Great Gift Pile (of Manga)

by suimasenscans

This is what your pile of gifts would look like if it were human.

Well, it’s that time of season where everyone gets so busy that they can’t be bothered to make a release post for everything that’s gotten done, so why not get into the spirit of the season and make a giant omnirelease post with all the stuff you wanted to release anyway and treat it as one big present? Surely, you may say, the release post should contain at least one once-in-a-lifetime project to make up for all the trouble, but sadly that isn’t the case. However I think we do have a few cool things that you may enjoy, and they certainly are out of the ordinary. (If you’re here to figure out what the secret project is, just scroll down the page a little ways because I’m going to build this up by making the pile look bigger with ordinary stuff.)

Check under the tree (after the break):

And One To Go (KK OVA Ep. 5)

by slyborg

I was locked up in a Turkish prison

Hisashiburi desu ne. Sure is speedsub around here :/

We’re pleased to present the penultimate offering in the special six-episode OVA produced by SHAFT to commemorate Kumeta’s 20th anniversary of FILLING UP BACKGROUNDS WITH OBSCURE REFERENCES TO JAPANESE BASEBALL. This last volume of the BDs apparently had extra budget left over for background spam, so enjoy your hitting pause every minute and a half 😉 Note that I didn’t typeset the bookshelves, because converting Japanese titles into English makes them not fit since you can render something like The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Japanese in three kanji. TL Notes will be available on the wiki at some point, please wait warmly, etc.

1080p is done for this as well, but I need moar bandwidth for that, so I’ll upload that in a couple of days.

(Initial seed will be slow, if you can pull the ddl and help, you will receive welcome news in 3 days. Lucky numbers are 3,11,20 and 34.)

AniDB Info

This episode contains material from KK chapters 207, 222, and 273; the prologue Love Hina parody comes from chapter 113.

Staff Credits
Umin – Translation  – Ravaging the shelves at Lawson and translating manga at the speed of shinkansen
slyborg – :Stuff:  – Basically useless

OVA 6 is translated and just needs everything else including insert song karaoke ;_; But first I’m going to knock out at least one chapter of 2wei because Fightan Mahou Lolis has the same initials as another descriptive phrase that is applicable here.

UPDATE: 1080p DDL added. Because lolbandwidth I’m not going to make a torrent for this, but if someone wants to, douzo, and I’ll link it…
