    XS by Ji Hyoung Song

    For Manga Undergrounds release thread go here!

    Well, I'm not that familiar with Manhwa (korean equivalent of Manga) but this one is really an interessting read and according to Dark Horse the Manhwaga (Mangaka) Ji-Hyoung Song aka DOUBLE-S is also the artist of Until Death Do Us Part.

    From what I know so far is that the classification of Manhwa is similiar to the Japanese one (Sunjeong = Shōjo, Sonyeon = Shōnen and Seongin = Seinen/Josei) and I personally would consider this story as Seinen aka Seongin. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    XS - Discussion Thread
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Title: XS (XS엑세스)
    Authored by Ji-Hyoung Song
    Serialized in Booking Comics (Haksan, 2003-2005)
    Genre: Seongin (Seinen), Action, Sci-Fic, Supernatural
    Korean Release: 5 Volumes (complete)
    Licensed by: Dark Horse (start: Jun 06, 2007 ); EMA (Germany)
    Scanlations: ongoing
    Age Ranking: Mature (16+ by Dark Horse)

    Summary (taken from Dark Horse):
    In a strange future where gifted, "hybrid" humans police the planet, Mina is a likeable tomboy with growing psychic powers. When a young boy falls into a coma after gazing into her eyes, it's clear that there's more to Mina than her pretty looks. This young boy, Hinchang, grows up to be quite a daredevil, and his awkward, secret love for Mina fuels his protective fire when mysterious men arrive, bringing the violence of the "hybrid" world with them!



    Note: Read from Left to Right!

    Resources: XS@mangaupdates



    Group:
    Chapter 001-ongoing (Vol 1+) by Manga Underground
    (based on the German release, if you wonder about the sfx^^")

    Evil Empire (Freehosts)

    The images are adoreable. Ji-Hyoung Song's character design and also the drawings of technic stuff and action scenes are just great. Who can draw cool looking dudes with sunglasses like that? Just hot! I think I can consider this guy as my favorite korean comics artist

    Have fun!

    Re: XS Hybrid - Discussion

    The manhwa is called XS and not XS Hybrid. Hybrid is just the name of the first volume.
    On other hands, there is already another thread about XS. Yours is more informative though.

    Original Thread

    So please include my thread or delete this one. Thanks!

    edit: Actually, I hope it's ok when I copy some of your stuff in my thread.?!

    Thank you, seems I got confused with the way how Dark Horse wrote it's info. Sounded much like the name of the whole series there ("XS Hybrid is an exciting new series ... blah").

    Hm, I used the forums search a few times without finding your thread

    Anyways, we usually don't have the discussion threads inside of the scanlators boards, so I'm going to keep this one and include yours as XS release thread, ok?

    *goes changing her post* done.

    Sure, all for the sake of promotion

    And thank you for doing this project, I really enjoy it.
    Unlike Manga which I always buy in Japanese, I really think about buying a German release for the first time - no way that i will ever be able to read korean >.<

    Re: XS - Discussion

    @Darryl: Did you say we have to read from left to right?

    I don't recall doing the same for Until Death Do Us Part?

    Why is there this difference?

    Re: XS - Discussion

    XS is a manhwa which is to be read from left to right, while UDDUP is a manga (serialized in Young Gangan). It's the same korean artist, but the writer of UDDUP is different (japanese) guy.

    XS
    writer: Ji-Hyoung Song
    artist: Ji-Hyoung Song
    original published in Korea = Manhwa

    UDDUP
    writer: Takashige Hiroshi
    artist: Double-S (aka Ji-Hyoung Song)
    original published in Japan = Manga

    Oh, I understand. I thought it was the same author but it is the same artist. I got it.
    Thanks, eni.

    *glares at the art* ... not to mentation - I LOVE the drawings again this chapter
    I'm usually not much into action series because of the art, but this style really is great.

    Re: XS by Ji-Hyoung Song (v05, Manhwa)

    Ok, it's been AGES since anyone was working on this, and I did the translation for volume 5... and I kinda want to see it completed!

    I can provide the translation & GERMAN Raws, ch28 has been done by HAO and MU. Might need some tweaking though (should talk to HAO about that!). But from chapter 29 onward you can "basically" do what you want. I rescanned Chapter 30+ and uploaded them on mediafire. Hmm... What else…? Credits where credits are due, maybe you can let me go over it before you release it?


    I‘m available if you have any questions (translation & “raw”-wise), I can rescan some pages, but I can’t do anything about the dust, sorry, the paper quality/my scanner is awful. Some stuff has been proofread (by I dunno anymore), but you better check again.
