...and now that I see all the pictures... ah, well, hard copies are good too!
I'm working on translating these things right now, but it usually takes a bit... ^_^
Um...I sadly don't have the time to completely translate the first gag comic (there's a summary! ><), but I've got the Talk Room thing. For a few of the small text bits I couldn't read it, but I've got most of it. *Text* denotes the small text, usually outside the comic bubbles.
Talk Room p. 24
Q.: Does the Noah family celebrate Christmas and the New Year and such?
Road: Ne--, ne--, this time let's do Skin's farewell party.
Tyki: *Huh?* Isn't that a funeral? *Be quiet.*
Road: We'll do it for Tyki when the time comes, too, ne--.
Earl: For both Christmas and New Year's we go wild.
Tyki: Hey, wait a minute... Why do we do so much for those events...?
Tyki: Let's stop. *They're a pain...*
Earl: Well. That goes without saying.
Earl: If you don't participate ni~cely...
Earl: I will expose Tyki-pon's emba~rrassing photos to everyone.
Q.: What do the Noah's usually eat?
Debitto: Today's dinner is the Millenium Earl's home-made hamburgers.
Jasdero: Eh...wasn't yesterday's also that...?
Tyki: ...It was also that the day before, and the day before that, wasn't it... *How boring...*
Road: *sob* This has already gone on an entire week. Of course, I'm tired of it, too... *I want to go to a three stars (Mitsuboshi) restaurant or something...*
Debitto: ....Don't cry, Jasdero...
Jasdero: But I want to eat normal food!!
Tyki: ...What would I do if he became a marshmallow body that looked like the Millenium Earl.
Road. Ah. Say that to the Millenium Earl.
Tyki: Uwaa, I definitely won't say it!!!
Q.: What exactly is that antenna on the top of Jasdero's head?
Tyki: That's right. I wonder what Jasdero's head antenna is.
Road: It's a strange lamp.
Debitto: It's a Dragon Ball!! *I'll kill you*
Jasdero: 6 more to go--, hiiiiii!!!!
Then, the first gag comic is called the "'Katou' Affair". Apparently this is a true story. According to Hoshino-sensei, the staff of the D. Gray-man anime and the voice actors (zomg, I love Okiayu Ryoutarou! ><) from around the Rewinding Town arc all went out to dinner after a recording session, and Mr. T, the mixer, got drunk and began talking about someone named "Katou" who hadn't been appearing lately. Everyone was confused until Mr. T said it was the "Katou" that "Sakurai kun" played, Sakurai kun being Kanda's voice actor. So for some reason Mr. T had been calling Kanda "Katou" in his head. And from then on, everyone called Kanda's voice actor Katou.
Sorry I couldn't translate the rest. ^^;;

thanks a lot snoogen
Translation of the gag manga 1 I posted in LJ...figure out I'll bring it over here.
Text: This is a real incident that occured during the recording of D. Gray-man anime...
Because the recording usually starts in the evening, the cast and staff go straight to dinner after the recording...
The incident happened while they were eating after the recording of "The Rewinding Town".
The slightly drunk mixer T-shi slowly started talking.
T-shi: Now that I think about it, "Katou" didn't appear recently~
I wonder when he'll appear next~~? "Katou", I mean.
Text: Out of the blue, Mixer T-shi started talking about the mysterious figure "Katou"
T-shi: See, "Katou" didn't appear recently, right?
Text: Confused bunch of people
Allen(when I say the characters' name I mean their seiyuu): "Katou"...?
Linali: "Katou" who?
River: Was there a character like that?
Everyone: (What is he talking about...)
Text: The place quieted down after that.
It's "Katou"! KA-TO-U!! Seriously, everyone's being so cold.
See, the guy who Sakurai-san was playing?(TN: I love how he's smacking Allen's back in this picture.)
Everyone: That's not Katou, it's Kanda!!!!
Text: Sakurai-san is Kanda's seiyuu
Text: Yes! The "Katou" T-shi was talking about is in fact Kanda!
For some reason the name Kanda has been replaced with "Katou" in his head! Why is that so, T-shi!?
Text: That moment they thought that T-shi's head had gone a bit weird due to excess working, and the mystery was solved.
Everyone: You only got the "Ka" part right!
At least you got the correct number of syllables
Did you even read the manga!?
It's so rude to both Sensei(TN: Hoshino) and Sakurai-san!
Text: T-shi, who got scolded by a bunch people seemed to have tried his hardest to smile
Text: On one hand, Hoshino, who had heard of this incident was so shocked that her(TN: The actual passage didn't use a pronoun, but I've assumed that Hoshino is a female) body started shaking
Hoshino: He only got the "Ka" part right, didn' he!!
Text: Shouting to the sky thinking about mine dear child Kanda, tears started to flow from her eyes like a horse's (TN: Couldn't really get this part, katakana SHO-N-BE-N?)
Text: A day after the Katou incident, Sakurai-san who participated in the recording with his role as Kanda, he
Allen: Good morning
T-shi: Gooood morning~
Kanda: Ah, T-shi
Greetings, I'm Katou.
Text: -said something like that
Kanda: BATTOU!(TN: Stuff he says while invoking Mugen)
Text: After that, the Kanda=Katou incident was known to everyone involved in the anime production. Everyone started calling Kanda "Katou"...what are you going to do, T-shi...
Text: Dead end!(TN: A play on the word "Oshimai" which means "The End", instead replacing the hiragana "shi" with the kanji "death")
Kanda: Who the hell is Katou!?
lol thanks for the translations.
i read that the gag was quite funny but i didn't expect it to be this funny. the talk room seemed interesting though i prefer the first format. more questions were answered
Haha, cool. thx for the scans and the translation ^___^. Thanks a lot.
Translation of the inside cover since it's quite short.
Text: Another Crisis
Debitt: Hey, just how much debt do you have to pay off?
Allen: Er..let's see...
Jasdero: Eh? A book?
Small text above his head: Light
Text on book: Idiot Master's Bill Files
Debitt: EEEHHHH!?!?!? SO MUCH!?!? Dude, WHAT'S YOUR LIFE?
Jasdero: It's a curse...it's already a curse!!
Text: (TN: Can't make out the characters before this...)The cursed apostle of God, Allen Walker(15)
Allen: My life...what is that...
Y-shi: The main character of D.Gray-man.
And the picture with Allen and the Earl.
D. Gray-man recording studio 1-koma
During the recording, Junpei-san who plays the Earl always sits next to Kobayashi Sanae-san, Allen's seiyuu.
OMG the seiyuu one is deadly funny XDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Katou Yuu!!!! XDDDDDDDDDDD
