No new chapters for about a week.

Finals are approaching for me next week, and I really can't take the time out of my schedule, so don't expect anything before next weekend. I, can regretfully, no nothing to change this, so I ask that you please bare with me. Once I'm off for the summer, I'll try and put in some extra hours at first, to at least catch up with where I should be.

Edit: Oh, and Vol. 30 is up for torrenting on Tokyo Tosho and Nyaa Torrents, but since it's faster, here are some DDL links. Mediafire seems to be down for me, so just Megaupload for now.

Double Edit: Mediafire link added.

Vol. 30:

Don't You Know That You Are A Shooting Star?

So, Vol. 30 complete, and with an awesome chapter at that. No chapter for 2-3 days as I take a short break, and go back and fix some errors for the volume release.

Big thanks to my friend, Tzion, on helping fill in some missing sections from. Veggie's JoJo Page translation.

Vol. 30 Chap. 9:

Monday, April 20, 2009


So, here it is, and I'm finally back on schedule. Expect 9 out tomorrow, then I'll be taking a small break to go back and prepare the chapters for the volume release.

Vol. 30 Chap. 8:

Always Delayed, Never Defeated

So, here is Chapter 7, it took me a really long time, due to a lacking translation, and my inability to decipher one speech bubble, and then I spent the rest of the night playing Pokemon and talking about Dungeons and Dragons, so yeah. Expect Chapter 8 in 2 or so hours.

Vol. 30 Chap. 7:

Titular Titillation

So, here is the chapter that was due out yesterday. Tomorrow's will be on time for sure, with today's released somewhere in between this one and that one, or something.

Vol. 30 Chap.6:

Friday, April 17, 2009


So here it is, the unawaited fifth chapter of Vol. 30. This one is a bit slow, and nothing really happens, but it sets up the next chapter to be awesome. Expect the next chapter to be somewhat early tomorrow, or a double release the next day, due to some scheduling conflicts.

Vol. 30 Chap. 5:

Edit: I just realized that this is also the two week anniversary of my first release, 14 days and 14 releases, not a bad pace, if I do say so myself (and I do).

Lucky Release #13

While, if what that one commenter says is true, this might be the end of my 'bizarre' foray into typesetting, but until then, I am but your humble servant, in the world of mediocre releases.

Vol. 30 Chap. 4:

Edit: I first off, want to apologize for the delay, this was originally supposed to be posted like 15 or so hours ago, but I saved it as a draft instead of publishing it, so I'm not actually behind on releases, and a new chapter should be out tonight.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


So, here's Vol. 30 Chap. 3, and as one previous commenter already state, though you knew this anyway, these scans are far from the best out there...but some (a few) read them anyway! And I just want to thank everyone who reads, and enjoys, these, since they are a labour of love, really. Also, all typos will be fixed for the volume release, so please point them out to me if you could, since I'm a really bad spellchecker!!

Volume 30, Chapter 3:

Eleventh Release, Judges Still Unimpressed

So, here is Vol. 30, Chap. 2. This one took me awhile just because of how much dialogue there is. In unrelated news, I'm beginning to think I'm retarded because I can't seem to be able to get Manga Updates to post my DDL links, even though I keep including them with my releases, I must be missing something.

Vol 30 Chap 2:

Vol 30 Begins!

Chapter 1 of Vol. 30 is out, everyone! A great fight scene in this one, and that's quite an interesting stand power. I'm not going to be tl'ing the family history or the story so far, since it's more or less unneeded, so sue me.

Chapter 1, Vol. 30:

Expect chapter two sometime early tomorrow, since I'm going to try and keep up with a chapter a day, but weekends are a crapshoot in terms of how much free time I have.

Friday, April 10, 2009

Vol. 29 Complete!

So, I just finished Chapter 9, so expect me to release a good corrected volume of 29, probably by Sunday/Monday, and probably no new chapters till after that, since I'll be taking a short break.

Chapter 9:

Volume 29(Shit Version):

Have a Happy Easter, everyone!

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Chapter 8

So, here's chapter 8, you can expect 9 today, still, but it'll probably be later on tonight. Enjoy!

Chapter 8:

Chapter 7

So, I fucked up the Manga Updates thing and labeled it as Volume 28, but it's definitely 29. I've also got chapters 8 and 9 already cleaned(if you can even call it that, I'm working on going back and removing the annoying colored lines for the volume release, but I suck at photoshop and am having some problems) so I just need to type them up. Expect them later tonight, but probably after dinner, sorry for the slight delay.

Chapter 7:

I actually couldn't bring myself to read all of this in it's current state, so I'm sort of reading Part 4 while translating, and for the most part I'm impressed. I'm liking Josuke a lot more than I thought I would, and aside from a few QUALITY panels in the first two chapters, this is really starting to get good.

Double Release!

Second release of the day! (Or night, depending on how you look at it). I guess I'm one of the few people who actually has been consistently exceeding his release expectations...but that's probably just til I get tired and begin to hate all of you and the manga.

So, expect probably two to three more chapters tomorrow, and then I'll probably take a day or two off and start back up on the weekend.

Chapter 6:

Fifth Release

Chapter five is done. I'm hoping that I can have the rest of volume 29 out by late Wednesday/early Thursday. I'm also looking into going back and changing all the text in Chapter 1 so it's easier to read, so be expecting it.

As always any criticism/translation errors/typos/you name it are more than welcome, as I'm trying to put out the best releases that I can.

Also, if anyone would be interested in just translating the chapter titles for the next few volumes, please drop me a message, and I'll see if we could work something out.

Volume 29 Chapter 5:

Chapter 4

So, when I said "I'm hoping to release a chapter every three days," that was code for I'll probably be releasing a chapter every day. So here is Chapter 4, and the plot is picking up pretty quickly! (Faster than part 3 IMO.)

Since I get to bitch here, Photoshop merged all of my text layers to the original, so going back for spellchecking was a bitch.

I don't have a translation for the brief biography of Josuke at the beginning of this chapter, I'll work on getting all of those by the time I release a batch for volume 29.

Chapter 4:


Sunday, April 5, 2009

Another release! (And a rerelease!)

So, I still can't sleep, and I'm proud to present chapters 3 and 2 v2, luckily I got 2 v2 out before even 2 was out on mangaupdates, so hopefully no one downloaded it. I just fixed two spelling errors, and a spacing error.

Expect maybe another chapter tomorrow, but I'm behind on animu from doing this, so I might take the day off.



Also, if you know any places where people might be interest in this, please try and help spread the word. I know my releases are mediocre compared to some, but I'm hoping I'll be done with the first volume by next Friday, so I'm looking forward to getting onto new ground with JoJo Part 4, because as awesome as JoJo is, it is severely lacking in good releases, and even fans.

Second Release

Well, this next chapter was only about as 2/3rds as long as the last one, so I got done with it sooner than I expected, along with some unexpected free time (IE: Insomnia). I'm aiming to have chapter three out by tomorrow night, so hopefully I can get the first volume finished by next weekend.

As per the comments I have used a new font, and worked on increasing the size of the text so that it's easier on your eyes. As always comments/criticism/hints are welcomed, and if it's bad enough I'll be more than happy to put out a V2.

Until next time...(hopefully tomorrow.)

First Release

Now, I thought that I was going to do this by the volume, but since I'm a novice when it comes to this kind of thing, I thought I'd throw this one out and see how it is received before barreling onward, where more mistakes will need to be corrected.

This is also just an attempt to try and see who is interested.

But, enough of my bullshit, here it is: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 4 Vol. 29 Chapter 1

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Announcement of Intent.

As a somewhat recent fan of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, the lack of quality translations have plagued me as I have tried to read Part 4 of the series. Due to this I will take it upon myself to attempt to clean some raws and using the current translations make them at least more easily read.

As I cannot speak Japanese, or any language other than English for that matter, the actual translations may be as off as ever, but hopefully this experience will at least be in coherent sentences.

I think Randy 'Turbo' Johnson scans will succeed where so many others have failed. (Or just got bored and stopped.
