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.
