Here's to all of you with springtime allergies (Update!)

So, after some setbacks, we finally bring you volume 42 version 1!

We've finished the rest of the redraws for this version together with all of those little volume extras. Should be final now.

So, without further ado, here's the rest of Highway Star but more importantly, the introduction to everyone's favorite planty feline:  http://www.mediafire.com/?5n3u2y9bp2wgbyz

This is the complete edition so feel free to spread it. Edited by Orthio - 15/5

  2. Hi there, just buzzing again. I downloaded the new volume, and send you a note on the JoJo forums (I'm ThePachyon). I'm a wandering artist who wanted to lend a touch up hand if that was something you could use extra help on (I'm new but willing to give it a try if its welcome)! Thanks as usual for this! Can't wait till you get to volume 44 where shit gets crazy.

  3. Great work, guys! Just a heads up for the v2: Page 120 has an SFX error (Stray Cat's "meows" are missing in one bubble, they were misplaced in a bottom panel where there should be a "*gurgle*" SFX). Keep up the fantastic translations, seeing the upcoming volumes properly translated is gonna be a blast, since I just finished the Duwang version a few days ago.

    1. Absolutely no idea.

      Sorry anon, I know how hard it can be waiting for Jojo - just forget that it ever existed and you'll be better off I promise.

  7. Your work on this translation is really appreciated. Are you back on your normal schedule or are you still having problems with raws/editing?

    1. Our raw provider just became free again so should be getting those in soon. So hopefully I'll get myself some time to actually work on them. Boco's started soldiering through the trans too which is ace.

    1. Ooh thank you but I think we're okay actually! Unless they're in higher quality than the standard raws? We were using the public raws until 41 and at that point their quality just droppped completely.

  9. It may be answered already, but how much time does it take for you to release a new volume?
    I really want to finish reading part 4, but I can't stand the translations from the Chinese version.

    1. Err, it seems to take about 3 months but I'm afraid I can't put any promises to that. Would recommend reading sandman till it finishes. Or tbh just skip and start on steel ball run, the arcs don't really flow from now on anyway.

  10. Are you guys going to redo any of the first volumes at some point? We are working on the spanish translation, so we are interested on that.

    Also, I can give you better scans for the covers. We can talk about it if you want.

    1. Yeah I definitely want to redo volume 29 and some point so can send you the psd's for those. And yes I'd love better covers! Send me a mail on tomcorbett_32@hotmail.com

      And best of luck translating to spanish too man.

    2. Also, nothing against Randy Turbo Johnson, but we'd love a re-done volume 30 as well, Orthio. Brilliant work on 42, by the way.

  11. I got a little worried when I saw the last entry was in April. But then I saw recent comments from you guys. Any rough estimate for when the next part might be done? Anyways, glad you guys are doing this. No more Duwang.

    1. And we only miss like 4 volumes! And that's it!

      For the rest, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is decently translated. I feel sorry for U.S., Spain, Germany and a lot of other countries to don't have this awesome series.

    2. Ah yes, can you please add on Batoto (dot) net a page on a chapter of Part 3: Stardust Crusaders? Thanks!

    3. Some guy left a post for batoto so hopefully they'll pick up on it.

  12. Hello there. I've been reading your JoJo Part IV translation and am now caught up. Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent and I mean excellent translation. I will be looking forward to reading the next volume :)

  13. I know it was thrown in as a joke, but is there an accurate translation of the "what a beautiful Duwang" page?

    1. "Morioh really is such a beautiful town..." "I don't think it's like could be found anywhere else." "It's just perfect for picnics."
      or something like that

  14. Guys, in 19 days it will come out All Star Battle.

  15. Just curious, how's progress coming along on this? I started with it as my way of reading Diamond is Unbreakable and I'm damn well finishing it that way :3

    1. It's really impressive that anyone can wait that long, I would've jumped onto duwang years ago!

      We should have it out soon though, check again next thursday.

    2. Haha, well, the job I'm seeing is impressive enough to stick around for. I've just finished Stone Ocean roughly an hour ago, so I plan on finishing my favorite part out of all 7 that are complete as I properly should.

      Thanks for the update, by the way!
