Kaibutsu Oujo ch 70 script

Cyborg 009 and Silent Hill references this chapter. I guess those are the best choices for a psychic baby and his female caregiver who are being chased by a creepy faceless monster.

7o3x ch 13

I like this new arc...but I can't believe that they're just going to forget about the cliffhanger of chapter 12.

I accidentally edited it at a higher resolution (3600px high instead of 2600px high), so the PSDs are kinda bloated. Too lazy to run a batch to resize them.

Kaibutsu Oujo ch 69 script

Fuhito's name can mean "not human" in Japanese, though I wished that it was German to keep the theme.

Getenrou HQ raw

First, I'd like to make one thing clear. There are at least two groups who have contacted me about this (Kotonoha and Suimasen). I will be a neutral raw provider to any group.

Notes about the raws:
  1. The cover has been rotated, cropped, and merged, but not cleaned. Cover and inside cover dpi is 600.
  2. Page 001a is actually a combination of a translucent overlay page with the Groucho classes and the page underneath.
  3. All of the other pages are straight from my scanner with no modifications. The dpi is 400. The file names are aligned with the actual page numbers.
Finally, this is just my opinion, but I recommend all groups to skim over the analysis from various Japanese blog posts, like this one. In particular, take note of the sound effect on page 216.

Pokemon Special BW ch 14

As you may or may not know, Sho4 is ending in two issues, so that puts us in an awkward spot. I've taken the liberty of drawing up a transitional "contract."

If you vote to not continue paying for monthly Pokemon Special...

I won't continue to import any more magazine issues containing Pokemon Special after Sho4 ends. I'll import the last two issues of Sho4 regardless of the balance. However, I'd appreciate it if you guys clear the balance instead of leaving me $54 poorer.

If you vote to continue paying for Pokemon Special...

You'll need to finish paying for the Sho4 issues; I need about $54 for the current debt and the cost of the last two issues.

Then this is where it gets tricky. The other magazines that Pokemon Special is serialized in are the monthly CoroCoro Ichiban and the irregular (usually bimonthly) Pokemon Fan. I have two choices:
  1. Try to set up subscriptions through Kinokuniya: I don't know if they import these magazines, but if they do, it's probably going to be $140/year for CoroCoro Ichiban (no idea what the cost for PF is). I prefer to get at least half the money in advance from you guys, though.

  2. Import through Amazon + transfer service: From my estimates, both magazines probably takes $30/issue to import and $40 together. What I would do is import two issues of CCI and one issue of PF together to lower the shipping costs. Doing things that way would probably cost $50-60 every two months, which is better than the current set up with Sho4.
The ball is in your court, donators.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel ch 27

These last 3 chapters have been wearing out my patience. I'm seriously worried that this manga may get so caught up in its political intrigue and philosophy that it loses its identity. In short: just get to the fucking battle at Iwo Jima already.

Online Manga Downloader 0.1.6

Update: CrochetTime for Voyager store may be broken because Voyager store is changing their servers, apparently.

Thanks to Spiritovod's meticulous bug-catching, I think we've caught and fixed most of the bugs. Here are the changes other than bug fixes:
  • Revamped GUI: The main downloader window is now combined with the examples frame. In Manual mode, the tab you're on when you press the Download button is the handler that the downloader uses. For examples, if I'm on the Shogakukan tab, the downloader will use the Shogakukan tab.

  • Three new handlers: Comic Rush, Grand Jump/Monthly Heros, and Web Young Jump.

  • Resume function: It picks up from the first file that it hasn't downloaded, not the first file of the whole item.

  • General code restructuring: Most net code has been moved to use Jsoup instead of java.net.
However, there are two known bugs:
  • NicoNico E-books Hour Bug: NicoNico E-books has some really large files and long items, so it may take more than an hour to finish downloading it. Unfortunately, the NicoNico login also seems to expire in a hour.

  • Connection Abort Bug: It doesn't detect aborted connections. For example, Yahoo Bookstore has some files larger than 1MB. If your connection is slow and under stress, OMD's connection may be interrupted. OMD will spit out a partial file in that case.
Right now, both can be "fixed" through the resume function. If you encounter the first bug, just make it download again and it will pick up from where it left off. For the second bug, delete the partially download files and try again.
