Good work, leecherboy. I think most people is too lazy to thank you, because I'm the only one who does it. In Jesulink.com (the official web of Raruto) there are hundreds of comments for each chapter. Does anyone read Raruto in English? Am I the only one?
I have the spoiler questions of this chapter in my computer, but I'm not using my computer now. I'll edit this reply when I can use it.
By the way, leecherboy, how long have you been translating the 121 pages the Databook consists of?
And I have an announcement for fans (if I'm not the only one xD): the 4th Databook (this one is the 3rd) won't be released in PDF, but IN PAPER (at least in Spanish). Yeah, it'll be a fanzine. I haven't talked to leecherboy about it, but I hope he translates it and uploads it to a online bookshop (for example, lulu.com, where I've made myself a Raruto store). [Suggestion to leecherboy: if you're busy to do it, I can typeset the fanzines]
EDIT: I said "fanzines", in plural, because there are three Raruto fanzines for now: "Raruto - Trip to White-White-land" (parody of "Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow"), "Raruto and the badly drawn tiger" (parody of "Naruto the Movie 3: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom") and "Raruto - Volume 1" (a collection of all chapters of the first season with extras).

And about translating it if it was a fanzine, I can translate alright, but I don't have the slightest idea on how to typeset a "physical" comic...
I've already talked to Jesulink about translating the two special Raruto chapters ("Journey to the White White Country" and "Raruto and the Badly Drawn Tiger") for him to do the "typesetting" and sell them like the original ones, but I haven't received a definite answer (he's probably busier than me xD).
EDIT: Oops, I didn't actually notice that at first sight, but thanks for going through all the trouble to make an english store at Lulu.com ;D

I'm pretty sure Jesulink has the fanzines in PDF, because it's the only way to get them printed in Lulu.com (well, there's another way: sending the images, but I doubt he did that).
By the way, I wanted to typeset the 4th Databook to read it for free!! xD
[When you have the fanzines translated, I can send you a PM with my password in Lulu.com to publish them]
EDIT: The Databook was released almost 6 months ago.
EDIT 2: Now I'm using my computer, so here you have the spoiler questions:
Li's dreams crumble, Sumadre becomes a Bigboss, and the Music Four appear for the first time [well, technically it's the second: remember the fight Chochimaru - Monkeyface?] in Raruto chapter #29, "I can't heal you, Li" ("The end of a reign. The start of an age."), in which we'll also know the answers to these questions:
If you want to know the answers, wait till the 17th June (don't be too impatient: you can't learn enough Spanish in two weeks to read the chapter xD).
EDIT 3: I've checked the dates the fanzines were released in Spanish. "Journey to the White-White Country" was published 11 days after the capter #21a was released. "Raruto - Volume 1" was released 2 weeks after chapter 27, and "Raruto and the badly drawn tiger" was released 9 days before chapter #29. I think it's about time those chapters are released in English. And Leecherboy, I can scan and send you the fanzines, because Jesulink is too busy working in the final chapter of Raruto. (By the way, Leecherboy, you'll find great news in Jesulink.com).
