Dragon Ball v10 ch136 – The Terror of Devil Emperor Piccolo!

Posted in New Releases, Project: Dragon Ball on July 21, 2014 by Feanor

A lot has happened since we last saw each other.

My cat Nami got sick and had to be put down two days before her 4th birthday because of a renal insufficiency that cats seem to have nowadays, and that I didn’t knew about until it was too late.

So of course this is all in her memory.


Other than that I had an odyssey of sickness(es) that lasted for 10 weeks. I was beginning to think it was never gonna go away at all. Still isn’t, but almost. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but you can imagine how that makes this a bit harder.

Then the world cup started, and as a soccer fan, there are plenty of matches to watch in that. Two days before the final match, my sister called me, because a stray cat had wandered into the yard of her workplace. And since I still had all the stuff from my cat, she wasn’t allowed to keep one at her place and the fact that my work ended sooner than hers, I drove over there with the transport cage. After getting her something for worms and having her checked for a chip at the vet, I took her home. I was planning to get another cat some day, but not this soon.
But what can you do? No tattoo, no chip, no collar and nobody looking for her with posters. Bring her to a shelter?
Plus, two days later germany won this little beauty


Anyways, here is what you came for.

Volume 10 starts. The Piccolo arc part 1. It takes a hell of a lot of time, but my god. This is how a manga chapter is supposed to look coming out presses. Imo.

Dragon Ball v09 ch132 – Tsuru Sennin’s Curse, the Kikōhō!!

Posted in New Releases, Project: Dragon Ball on April 15, 2013 by Feanor

I know it took a long time. Reasons? Get ready! In the time since the last release, I once again had to stay over at my sisters to sit her cats. Although, what means had. It’s not like I couldn’t have said “no”, but we’re talking about my sister here. Then I was sick. Three times. Two of these even overlapped, which was a treat you never want to get. Trust me on that. Also I got into a relationship. And I probably don’t have to tell you how that cuts down your “me-time”, into which scanlation time falls. And lastly, I started a new job. Now I work like 55 hours a week (sometimes more) in two jobs. Do the math and you know how fucked I am, as far as scanlating goes.
Given all those factors, I’m not sure how much point there was to even make this comparison. Since doing this detailed a scanlation takes a long time.

As for the comparisons. Here are the links:







It’s simple really. If your mouse pointer is off the picture, it’s the “before” version, and when you move it over the image you get the “after”. That way you can switch back and fourth between the pictures as fast as you want without it loading. It should be an instant switch. I’ve taken the text out as to not draw the eyes focus to those significant differences. Keep one thing in mind though. This isn’t an either or deal. I just didn’t want to spend more time making some simpler changes to the “before” version. Or edit the release on even more different levels, to have some changes I would want on both version, to appear on both these images. So the before version is pretty much just the raw version. With the panel lines redrawn like I always do it. Except in one picture (I think). That is because I keep the spacing above, below and next to the panels pretty much the same in every chapter/picture. And sometimes you have to move panels around, cut a bit off (where you can afford it). But in that one picture it lined up pretty good, so I made that a true befor/after version.

It’s time consuming going over the picture in that great a detail, but I think it makes the final release look better. That really turn it into the ultimate version of this mange. Because even if viz or other release it online or in a bigger picture size, it will never look this good. All it will do is make the basic version bigger, and not better. So no release will have those smooth and even lines, that this one has. But I’ve always been aware of the fact that readers might not even notice it. Because really, you switch through the pages quickly when reading, and you never have this kind of comparison. So I always wondered if I might be wasting my time doing it this detailed. Or rather, began to make it that detailed. Because I obviously didn’t do it that way, when I released one chapter a week.

Let me hear what you think. You might influence the future of this scanlation

And as always, enjoy the chapter.

Dragon Ball v09 ch131 – Tian Jinfan’s Distress!

Posted in New Releases, Project: Dragon Ball on February 19, 2013 by Feanor

Here’s the new chapter. Things are heating up in the fight. Three more chapters until the Tournament and the volume is done. And then we are heading into a new adventure.

Also, there are two new Dragonball scanlation attempts running. One starting from the arbitrarily choosen point when the Buu saga starts, also using the kanzenban raws. It’s an improvement over the crude complete scanlation that is out there, but not as nice as mine. I really don’t have a better way to say it without sounding like a arrogant dick, sorry. Totally readable of course but not much different than the raw.

The other one is the release of the manga done by viz that is fully colored. And beautifully colored I might say. Much better than the full color chapters in the kanzenban version. And the colors are not as dirty with blocks, so it would be not as much work (sigh). Apparently they start releasing the manga on a weekly basis starting when Radditz shows up. Two chapters are done so far, but they will release the whole series and the scanlator plans to release it too. And as the manga comes up he’ll supply me with the raw pages to some of the great panels and pages in the series. I’ll clean those my way and improve on them and release them as artwork along with my releases. It will take some time until more chapters are out before I get some, but I’m looking forward to it.

The other thing is something I found out when I was on this guys site. There were some questions about the release and he posted a link to a site that let’s you compare screenshots. You drag the mouse over one thumbnail and it switches quickliy between raw and scanlation. That was something I wanted to do in the past to give people an insight into how big a change there is between raw and my scanlation. Since the reader only sees the finished page while I can easily hide the layer I’m working on in photshop and switch back and forth. Which is the only good way to compare it. I thought about doing it by making a gif that does just that. But even though I have Photoshop CS5, I couldn’t figure it out. And since that was the only way I knew how to make something that might work I dropped the idea. But with this site that he used, I should be able to do it one of these days.

Anyway, enjoy.

Dragon Ball v09 ch130 – Tian Jinfan Panics!

Posted in New Releases, Project: Dragon Ball on January 19, 2013 by Feanor

There it is finally. I actually wanted to release this for Christmas. But shit just piles on that time of the year. Besides the Christmas days, there are a few birthdays. My aunt and uncle, my sisters boyfriend, two close friends. And after Christmas there was my sisters birthday, new years and then my birthday. Additionally whenever my sister and her boyfriend go on a weekend trip or holiday I have to do some catsitting. I should actually be there right now, but I wanted to finally get this done first.
Normally I save these as jpg with 80% quality. Which is still high, but it does add some dirt back into the cleaned colors. Keeps the filesize down, though. But this one took so long, I wanted to keep it the original quality. So it is a little bit bigger, but has 100% quality. We are almost halfway through the fully colored chapters. 23 or 24 donw and 27 to go.

The other thing. When I got to uploading this just a few minutes ago I noticed share-online.biz wasn’t reachable. So no link for that one yet. And on filecloud it wouldn’t let me log in, and when I tried to reset the account, it told me it doesn’t exist. And I didn’t want to get into that right now, since it’s late. So no filecloud link yet. And lastly on cramit.in, a lot of files were dead. Which is not surprising, since the last upload was a while ago. Could also be that the filecloud account got deleted because I didn’t log in since uploading chapter 129. I will look into it, and reupload the dead chapters in the next few days.
