Dragon Ball v09 ch131 – Tian Jinfan’s Distress!
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.
