TN: So... I've been thinking and well, One of my all time favorite series on earth is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I've noticed many things about this series that's very different. It follows that horror feeling with that deep adventure feeling you can't get anywhere else. To my surprise before I learned Japanese I used to read the scans of it which were "incomplete", And they were literally lacking in what the actual manga says. Instead there was a changing of words going about.

Upon learning Japanese I've noticed tons of errors in the original translations as well. Looking at it now and with my skill, It looks like it's been really rushed out. To the contrary I can't read a proper Manga without the proper context, It makes the experience seem like nothing worthwhile. In This project, I wish to do the first two Arc's being: "Phantom Blood" (Volumes 1 to 5) and "Battle Tendency" (Volumes 5 to 12). And if those go good, I'll continue working on the series.

Many people have asked me already, Why do I want to do a series that's already been done before. It's pretty simple, I didn't like the rushed jobs of the past. No offense to the past translators, Also I'm not a fan of "misplaced words/phrases" and especially "Fan Service". I hate Fan Service, It ruins the whole concept of the story. Furthermore, Since most of the scans suck from the original "Scanlation" being that they were LQ's, I'd like to see this get a proper release as it should with HQ's, For everyone to enjoy.

TN: So... I've been thinking and well, One of my all time favorite series on earth is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I've noticed many things about this series that's very different. It follows that horror feeling with that deep adventure feeling you can't get anywhere else. To my surprise before I learned Japanese I used to read the scans of it which were "incomplete", And they were literally lacking in what the actual manga says. Instead there was a changing of words going about.

Upon learning Japanese I've noticed tons of errors in the original translations as well. Looking at it now and with my skill, It looks like it's been really rushed out. To the contrary I can't read a proper Manga without the proper context, It makes the experience seem like nothing worthwhile. In This project, I wish to do the first two Arc's being: "Phantom Blood" (Volumes 1 to 5) and "Battle Tendency" (Volumes 5 to 12). And if those go good, I'll continue working on the series.

Many people have asked me already, Why do I want to do a series that's already been done before. It's pretty simple, I didn't like the rushed jobs of the past. No offense to the past translators, Also I'm not a fan of "misplaced words/phrases" and especially "Fan Service". I hate Fan Service, It ruins the whole concept of the story. Furthermore, Since most of the scans suck from the original "Scanlation" being that they were LQ's, I'd like to see this get a proper release as it should with HQ's, For everyone to enjoy.
