In return for today’s chapters, let me rant.
Today, I downloaded the chapters and I was checking for any mistakes. Usually, this process is pretty smooth, but wait! In Black Dog, there was a redraw that needed to be fixed. 40 minutes later, the redraw was fixed. I went onto the next page, and voila, missing translation. I pm’ed a translator, typesetted the translation, and proceeded to check through the rest of the chapter and finally convert everything to a PNG format using batch commands in Photoshop. But my batch command didn’t work! After some experimentation, the files were finally converted to PNG and renamed. My misery didn’t end here, though. The title page was missing! I quickly cleaned it, then renamed the files once again. I went through the same process for Kochikame, then comic tagged the files. Some of you may know that we have a release administrator, Harllama, who uploads the files to the our reader, Batoto, and other places. However, she wasn’t here today! So I struggled through the process of uploading chapters everywhere. (A large thank you to Radioactivekitty, our former admin, for creating a wonderful release guide.) And after 3 hours of hard work, here are the chapters.
So, you see, dear reader, we desperately need you. Learn how you can save our sanity by clicking here. Visit our forum, chat with the staff, and leave a message of support for all of our staff during this tough time known as finals season.
And finally, a large thank you to Schombert, Midnight Dreamer, Jehsi, Chutney, Matsumo, Vigorous Jammer, Yokoai, and Inkfingers for helping with this release! Have a good weekend, everyone!
