The way of Ryu, Volume 3 complete and chapter 18 part 4

Well, big day! And praise be to a1oner for his handling the Robot City arc...this one is nearly done...and then God shuts up.

And we have completed another volume of The Way of Ryu! Here's the complete volume 3

600th release special! Cyborg 009 Shimamoto one shot and Azumi chapter 1

And in such a short time, we breach another 100 releases!

The first order of business is a great joint with our man Hox, a Cyborg 009 oneshoy by Kazuhiko Shimamoto himself, written after and for the terrible Tsunami in Japan not long ago. Shimamoto's incredible art and Ishinomori's wonderful story and characters...what else could you ask for in a tribute?

009 One shot

And next...Azumi chapter 1, with our friend Guren no Heyakara at his blog! an amazing seinen story about a girl and her friends raised as assassins to end the foes of the shogunate. This one isn't for kids, with violence and sexual content at times,so be cautious. Guren also included a PDF glossary in the chapter to make following characters a bit easier. For this one, we'd appreciate if anyone wantsto sign on to help with the editing, namely cleaning and typesetting.

Here's chapter 1 of Azumi!

Be-bop High School vol. 01 ch. 10 & Complete Volume 1

Learn how to draw Hiroshi and Toru.

We take a short depature from Shimamoto releases, to bring you Be-bop Highschool  chapter 10 and vol 1. In this chapter Hiroshi and Toru are in danger of getting held back if they don't past a huge exam, so whats their plan you may ask for passing said exam, not to study of course, hire a nerd to pass the test for them; that plan won't back fire on them right?

Here we are! The new chapter at last, with a HUGE thanks to our friend at Guren no Heyakara for this..

Happy Chapter 159

And here's 159! Great to see this one out in such short order!

Please enjoy, and right now, we'd very much appreciate if anyone wants to come in as a cleaner or typesetter, particularly cleaners for Sukeban Deka or a typesetter for Vagabond!

GeGeGe No Kitaro, end of Volume 2!

And for the chapters...





And here's the complete volume 2!

Probably the best volume of the series with the Great Sea Beast arc and more spooky fun. Enjoy!

Friday, July 19, 2013


With Hox, we're glad to bring you the first and only volume of the story of the great conqueror. As Hox said, views on Alexander have ranged from a noble, well meaning warrior to a brutish, alcoholic megalomaniac tyrant. The truth, as Yasuhiko writes it, is probably somewhere in the middle. We see him presented at his bravest and most craven, most noble and most cruel, and it's really a fascinating depiction all through, particularly of the timeframe and a n unusual (and welcome) focus on the Diadochi. Really, we need more on the Diadochi, the warring generals after Alexander's death.

Enjoy everyone. What would you like to see more of next?

Kitaro: The Great Sea Beast Arc!

Chapter 14:

Chapter 15:

Chapter 16:

Chapter 17:

Chapter 18:

Chapter 19:

Chapter 20:

I'll let Chaos summarize it well:

You waited for it, folks, and here it is! This is hands-down the best arc of the entire Kitaro series, cause it parodies one of the best and most famous films (and A-bomb metaphors) to ever come out of Japanese cinema! Enjoy this Kaiju spoof with a little Mizuki-esque twist, and if you’re hungering for some more Kaiju action, go see Pacific Rim! That movie is awesome, and it should not have been beaten out at the domestic box office by that comedy with has-been Adam Sandler! Is there no justice in cinema? Seriously? Wow that was not about Kitaro at all. I better stop ranting so you can go enjoy… The Great Sea Beast arc!

The start of a new volume!  Chapter 6 opens with Keiji being a buffoon and Duke having to bail him out, with a sweet twist that may well net them new allies against the Vegans..
And Gandal is getting quite nervous and more than willing to take it out on his poor subordinates..

Robot Keiji Chapter 7, and Fantasy World Jun Volume 2 (END)

First order of business, it's back! Keiji chapter 7!

Thanks be to FKMT Krazy...but like I said, they need help if they'll continue bringing in amazing Fukumoto manga. Please consider teaming up with them for editing work, because it's Fukumoto! Kaiji, Akagi and all kinds of amazing stuff.

Second order of business.

Fantasy World Jun, volume 2 and the finish of the series. What an honor it was to work on this with our friend Guren. It's one of the most poignant, beautiful manga I've ever had the honor of working on. Jun's journey continues, taking him to beautiful new worlds, through amazing experiences and a quest to uncover the meaning of art, life, loss and sorrow.

This has my vote as THE manga of Shotaro Ishinomori with the exception of The Way Of Ryu. It's worth the price of admission just to see the art.

Enjoy, everyone.

When you read this, I just want everyone to keep in mind the tragedies Shotaro Ishinomori suffered, and the sheer work he put into this. The man was rightly known as the King of manga and he gave us an incredible archive to enjoy. It's a tragedy he's no longer with us, but nobody can live forever. I think Jun represents the man's work better than almost anything else he has done. As a scanlator, I love bringing his works out in English to people who would never enjoy them, and I find myself fascinated reading his thoughts and seeing his brilliance on the panels.

He wrote so many great stories and created characters that live on even after him. Robot Detective Keiji. Ryu. Kikaider. The 9 Cyborgs. Ichi the blind swordsman....while Tezuka was fond of writing himself into his own stories, to my knowledge, Jun is Shotaro's only avatar.  Here we get to see his inner thoughts and the sheer beauty of his art, especially the color pages at the end.

In the end, I want to say that the world is better because of Shotaro Ishinomori's devotion to his art and he left us a great deal to enjoy. Thank you, Sensei. Long live the King.

And from someone who helped make this manga in english a beautiful experience:
From a1oner:

Proud to be a part of bringing this 'one of a kind' manga into the hearts and minds of all non-Jap/Eng readers out there.

Thank you, Shotaro Ishinomori, for THE 'journey'-- and I mean every single one of them titles you had brought to this otherwise very boring world.

The Way Of Ryu Chapter 18, part 2

Way Of Ryu, chapter 18 (part 2)

Space Adventure Cobra Volume 3: Secret Of the Ultimate Weapon (joint with Hokuto No Gun)

Volume 3: The Ultimate Weapon

And after a bit of a wait, we bring you the new Space Adventure Cobra, with a fresh new adventure! The Secret of the Ultimate Weapon which is exactly what it says on the front!

Cobra has solved the mystery of the tattoos, and now he's ready to clash with the Evil Emperor Babel (and here's hoping we release more of the good Babel soon), see more of the Snow Gorillas, discover the mystery of the Swordians...and it wouldn't be Buichi without lots of action, scantily-clad women, improbable weapons and bizarre civilizations.

Oh, and Cobra fights a Genie. Just FYI

As far as I've been asked...

1. More Robot Keiji is hopefully coming soon.  FKMT Krazy told me he's working on another chapter. He just had to take a bit of a break. As a side note, if you guys like Fukumoto? His projects are in need of editors, so if anyone's interested, please say so!

2. Shin Mazinger Zero and Grendizer are in the hands of Dynamic Pro now, so we're waiting on him. As a sidenote, if Bounty Hunter is reading this, please leave a comment or email me regarding the scans, and thank you for the work you've been doing (other Side of Sky was requesting the scans to continue the translation)

Desert Punk Chapter 43
