Gintama 670 (0 comments)
I knew the Gorilla would have something to say about how shounen manga have wrapped up in recent years but for him to savagely beat the shit out of every trope he can lay his meaty hands on was far beyond my expectations, and I love it.

RYOKO 22 (0 comments)

And here we are almost but not quite a year later with Ryoko's presumably final chapter. I had thought that it would be a temporary hiatus which is why I dragged my feet on TLing it (that and there wasn't a group working on the series so there was no hurry) but the hiatus still rages on and someone did pick up the series so here we are. It pains me to say goodbye (for now) to RYOKO but Mitsuhashi's health comes first and foremost. I know you probably aren't reading this, sensei, but still know I hope you return as soon as you're able.

[meme] Can't cause a series to get cancelled if it's already finished by the time I translate it. [/meme]

Though yes, this is my new obession, and people want me to do this(?) so here I am. I thought the old translations would be dated but they're actually....worse than that. I am in no way promising this will be timely, but I can say I'll do my very best to finish it. Plus it'd be nice to have something other than Gintama and Saike to do.
