Furu Furu Furu Tanabata!

by slyborg

Happened to be at the local Nipponese grocery this evening and remembered it was Tanabata 七夕 tonight when I spotted this:

Not the most impressive Tanabata bush, but hey.

Think you find the same general things on tanzaku everywhere…

What do cats wish for?

Or maybe not:

Glorious Leader will purge this with nuclear fire

They ran out of paper slips, so I had to write mine on the back of a Pastry House Hippo receipt :/

As it happens, we also have the midsummer Full Moon high overhead tonight, so Orihime and Hikoboshi should be able to reunite happily this year.

Hope everyone’s wishes come true, and that everyone is having a nice summer…

Suddenly, SZS!

by slyborg


Was idly surfing Engadget, which had a story on Amazon’s new manga-centric Kindle for the Japanese market. What caught my eye was the manga the reviewer was using to demo the product. Good taste, Mat Smith.

Kakushigoto Teaser

>mfw I released something again

Yeah, well, this hardly qualifies as a release, eh. But Kumeta-sensei has a new series in the works, after the demise of Sekkachi in January. We’ll see if this offering does any better. Hopefully this isn’t some kind of nostalgia farewell tour for him, but doesn’t look promising, since the other thing he’s done lately is the “Studio Pulp” greatest hits collection in Le Paradis. A thousand apologies for the screencaps, but couldn’t find real raws, and also don’t have a real redrawer, so as always, suimasen.

So, sasuga Kumeta, the manga title has a double meaning. ‘Kakushigoto’ as 隠し事 means ‘a secret’, written as 描く仕事 means ‘a drawing/illustrating job’. So the last page final panel literally says ‘the kakushigoto was kakushigoto‘. You’d think he’d get tired of this after 20 years, but it’s what the man does, ne.

Fate Kaleid Batch Links Updated

by slyborg


In the never-ending struggle against the forces of automated copyright trolling, those of us that want others to have nice things must be eternally vigilant. TL;DR – Project page now has updated links including the batches of the original series (of which Suimasen only did the last 4 chapters), as well as batch for 2wei. Names are slightly obfuscated to make the bot herders work harder, but no promises, eh.

Still would like to re-master the series, was working off old-school small format magraws in the dark ages of five years ago, and some of the chapters, particularly ch. 9 were off some heinous black and white Share raws. Or maybe Kadokawa will finally license the thing for English translation. It’s like they hate money…

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.
