Well, as usually, I open such a thread again, this time for Hand's
In the first chapter, there was only one thing about handball, where Mizuki threw the rock and said that that's handball.
Chapter 1 - by me
Chapter 2 - by me
Chapter 3 - by me
Chapter 1 - Scanlated by promfret, translations by me
Chapter 2 - Scanlated by promfret, translations by me
I also translated the one shot, and SBM are working on releasing it, when it'll be released, I'll note you about it.
The translations for Hand's are for now free to be used by any person or team for scanlations, for private use, people will need to talk with me, and if I'll feel like it :P
So, a brief view of what goes in chapter 1
And what goes on in the one shot?
I somehow liked the one shot better, but who knows what will go of this :P
It's only chapter 1 Oo
well well I never thought anyone in japan even knew what handball is, seems I was wrong. I'm quite interested in seeing what kind of strange notions the mangaka has about handball before the manga get's cut. Afterall I doubt handball is popular enough in japan to be used in a manga.
Well, amefuto was used too and it's not that popular ^^" And it's still on going ^^"
what the hell is this? I know handball is a game you play with a small ball where you hit it against the wall and stuff. Why the hell is there a goal and a ball a little bigger than a softball there?
Hit it against the wall?
Handball is a combination of basketball and soccer like they said there, but in a really weird way :P So it's unaccurate to say that
You dribble and take points by getting the ball through the goal line, which have a goal keeper, you play only with your hands, that's the basics...
I guess the united states and other places have different handballs. This is the one i am thinking of: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_handball
Worm, your translation is free to use right?
Handball is closest to football (the real one not the american one). The only real difference is it is played with the hands. The field is like a mix of football and basketball though. The field itself is about as big as a basketball court but you have two goals, one for each team, and a half circle around each. This half circle is forbidden to enter for the offensive team and the defending team, except of course for the goal keeper, may only enter under special circumstances and not defend against a throw. So to defend against an attack you usually build a wall of players around this half circle to prevent the offensive team from throwing. And the offensive team tries to get past your defense by quick passing to outmaneuver the defense. It's quite a rough sport, often more so than football, with lots of body contact, meaning pulling pushing and so on. And like in football you get freethrows (like those freekicks in football and not like those in basketball) and penalties, when a foul occurs.
*Until the damn caplocks got down*
promfret, yes, it's free to be used by anyone, ofcourse as long as they don't forget to credit me ^^"
And you forgot to say that you need to dribble :P and you have 3 steps without dribble, as I remember, but I'm not sure now ^^"

Oh and I noticed an error in my description the offensive team may enter the half circle to throw but they may not touch the ground within the half circle before throwing. In other words they can jump as far in as they want.
Yes, that's why it's called the air fighting sport :P Because you fight with a jump in there.
Although it was weird, a series about Handball, and the first chapter had almost no handball in it Oo
Does anyone have a higher quality scan of c001 than the one the Touch posted?
I think that correctly there is no better one than that ^^"
