Another high quality re-scan, hard copy provided by Anonymous-Scanner.
This is quite possibly one of the finest/most complete publishings of a manga I’ve ever seen, not so much in terms of the book itself (though it is a great book), but more in terms of how well put together this book physically is. It’s somewhat uncommon for tankoubons to be printed with ALL their colour pages in tact (they tend to do a few at the beginning, then greyscale the any others further along the book). The book is also, oddly enough, completely uncensored as it was printed, and while I’m used to seeing manga printed with censorship so minimal it may as well not exist, it seems almost unheard of for the product to be uncensored in Japan. Then to top it all off, the dust jacket’s really neat. You can’t tell from the scan, but the cover is a bit textured and has a semi-metallic sheen to it; which makes the hard copy really neat looking, and of course made the scans absolutely hideous (if you’ve seen the older scans, you’ll see what I mean). I had to do some weird filtering (which SoyleB helped me with) to make the cover a little more passable.
All that irrelevant splooging over how pretty the book is aside, this is another one I plan to re-edit soonish, using SaHa’s translation. I’m actually thinking I’ll probably do it before Sei So Tsui Dan Sha, just because the editting work required here would be a lot less demanding, and so I could actually get it done a lot sooner. That being said, I’ll probably finish up Killer Queen first before I get to work on this one, and what with the new job I’ve started (and thus less free time), I’d be surprised if I get this re-edit done within a month, but we’ll see I suppose.
I won’t go into any details about content of this book until I do the re-edit, but I will just mention that there’s some futa in a few chapters in the second half, for those of you who like/dislike that sort of thing.
