Ben-to Zero ch 2

The volume is finally here. I didn't have the chance to scan the entire volume yet, so I only have raws for this chapter. I'll try to get everything scanned soon.

I'm allergic to TL notes, so I only put this in as a note in the PSD, but the phrase "Stomach's Howl" is a term I put in for "Protection of an Empty Stomach" (literally "Protection by Your Stomach Bug," wherein "Stomach Bug" is an idiom from "empty stomach"). Yuu explains it in the next chapter.

Online Manga Downloader 0.1.3

Changes:
  • Added support for NicoNico Official viewer. This viewer is used by NicoNico Seiga for official events, such as the Nano Ace and SDMP/SD&Go (where I got the Ben-to Zero raws) events right now. This NicoNico viewer doesn't require a NicoNico account.
  • The old NicoNico downloader has been renamed to "NicoNico User-published"
  • Added support for PocoPoco.
  • Added a log that gives extensive debug information. If you have an issue, you can help me help you faster by taking the log and posting it on PasteBin.
  • Corrected Actibook for DokiDoki, Shodensha, Tsubomi and sites like them. It should detect the right variant of Actibook now.
  • Cleaned up code.

Ben-to Zero 1

Here's the story behind this: before the season started, I looked up this series because I was curious. I found out that it had a prequel manga, but I couldn't find any raws, or even any photos of it. Then, yesterday, I decided to implement the downloader for the other NicoNico manga viewer. I noticed that the first issue of SDMP, the magazine for this, was released on Nico on the same day, so I decided to pick it up because I like the anime so far (and it's only one volume).

Anyway, the LN illustrator is drawing this manga. The editing department and the LN illustrator should get some sort award for that, because it's frustrating to see manga publishers use their adaptation deals to test new artists (see: Fractale).

Damn, young Kirishima is hot.

Schedule: November and December

There was a massive desync between the previous schedule and what actually happened because

>in charge of making schedule


Anyway, now that I'm finally finishing up on catching on things, this might be a good time to regroup.
  1. Finishing up - One chapter of Pokemon BW, two chapters of Mudazumo 2 and two chapters of 7o3x vol 2 redoes left.
  2. One-volume manga - I was thinking that I would have to wait one more week to get raws for this, but I found the first chapter by a strange coincidence today.
  3. Comic Hoshi Shin'ichi - I've been neglecting this, but I will still uphold my promise of finishing this by the end of this year
  4. Kaibutsu Oujo - I'll get to one or two chapters within catching up by the end of the year.
  5. Arpeggio of Blue Steel vol 4 redo - The editing is so easy that it'll only take 2-3 days at most. Will squeeze in sometime.
  6. Arpeggio of Blue Steel Drama CD - The CDs aren't that expensive ($15), but buying requires mailing in a special card and money in yen, using a transfer service, etc. I'll try to get it in a timely manner.
Of course, I'll mix things up (especially 2, 3, and 4) so I don't overindulge or neglect them. Regular stuff will come at their regular times. Pokemon Special and Noririn aren't going to release their next volumes until the end of December or next year. The next Mudazumo volume will probably come out in February.

Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku ch 52 (The Lion's Kindred 4)

There's a few jokes in this chapter that I didn't want to put translation notes for. First, Hatoyama's wife said that her soul has flown to Venus, so that's why they refer to Venus in this manga and the OVA. Second, "Acchira Poppo" is a Venusian prince from Ohwada's earlier manga Magical Witch Punie-chan (Dai Mahou Touge).

Online Manga Downloader 0.1.2

Anyways, I've always wondered what the "nSN" constant in PluginFree meant, and now I know: it's the zoom value. It turns out that I've never tried zooming in on that viewer. The resolution of the images on Comic High and Comic Gekkin actually go up to 2000+ pixels high, which is pretty fucking good (see above image). The downloader now downloads the highest resolution possible, which fixes the bug with Comic Gekkin.

Online Manga Downloader 0.1.1

Minor update:
  • Now supports the variant of Actibook on DokiDokiVisual (the site for Manga Time Kirara and its daughter magazines). I actually don't know how to distinguish between DDV and other sites, so it currently just looks at the domain name, which works but bugs me.
  • Now downloads sound effects in NicoNico manga.
  • Added a status bar.
  • Added an "Examples and Usages" window to show how to use the thing.
