I'm normally not rating any pages, but I'll make an exception.

I've encircled all the spots I'd suggest to re-do. :)
First you're blacks aren't fully filled. Mainly on the very left and right in the first panel.
Japanese text is still there. It needs to be removed and eventually re-drawn a few things under it.
There're a lot of spots where you can see some white specks. Doesn't look good in my eyes. :-/
And you should re-do you're borders. I'd suggest to make a straight line from the very left to the right,
therewith all the three small panels have the same borders.
And you should fill the gaps between your borders with white, therewith all the remaining borders of the actual image are removed.
And it's not really necessary to border the first panel on all sides, it's enough if you border it on the right and on the foot of the panel.
(Damn, I really lack of english expressions. :-/ )

Ah, and I'd recommend to save your page as *.png. :)

So here's the promised picture:

I looked back at the raw for this so I'll try and comment to help you if you're really aspiring for a hq (this wasn't a very good page to pick from if you got it from the raw that was pre-leveled and very grainy)...

1. It seems like your grays are too dark - it's why you can really notice some white/light gray specs on them. The solid gradient looks a little awkward, and it doesn't match certain areas where the original gradient was, like above the left trees. You should lighten it up a bit and find a nice gray pattern to compliment the gradient to make it look better. I'm sure theres a tutorial somewhere on this site for that.

2. The whole page looks a little blurred, or like you used some other kind of filter on it. The black lines are bleeding into the white... this is most obvious on the bottom panels.

3. Your borders still need work. They should be consistent on every panel, every panel has a side that's bigger then the rest or has some residue from the original border overhanging.

4. Learn to like the png!

Good luck
