Kuragehime ED Single

Almost a full month after the initial street release and nobody had bothered to rip it. I'm rather fond of the show itself, and extremely fond of the ED (not to mention Sambomaster) so I decided to order it.

So, here's Sambomaster's "Kimi no Kirei ni Kizuite Okure," the ED for Kuragehime bundled with 8 live recordings from their most recent tour.

Ho ho ho, merry christmas, etc etc.

Franken Fran chapter 45

Time sure does fly between releases. It's that time again!

This chapter is completely bonkers. "But Amuro," you say, "How is that any different from the other chapters?"

Yeah, well.. Just read it.

Franken Fran 44

Seasons bleedings, little monsters! Too old to trick-or-treat, and no invites to any parties? Don't worry, Hox, Vexed, and myself still love you.

Is there any better way to celebrate Halloween than sitting down with a tasty beverage and following the adventures of our favorite monster girls? NO, I CANNOT BE CONVINCED THAT THERE IS.

Familiar faces aplenty in this chapter, and a plan that reminds me of Zap Brannigan's solution to the Killbots. Enjoy!

Franken Fran 43

Oh my gosh, look what's here. This chapter is brought to you by mass delays. When you absolutely don't want something to arrive on time, they always do the job.

Vexed got his package stuck in customs for a while, and then I had to wait the better part of a week before I got started working on it. Hox, of course, did nothing wrong, seeing as how he is a deity.

Hox actually suggested using two different fonts to distinguish between the niece and the uncle, but I had already finished the chapter at that point and couldn't be bothered. You'll just have to use your imaaaaagination.

Franken Fran 42

A couple short delays this month, but never fear! Fran is here.

And because Fran didn't get canceled the first couple times, it's time for more Sentinel silliness! Do not lie, you love it.

Get it!
Got it? Good!

Franken Fran chapter 41

[EDITEDITEDITEDIT EDIT] HEY EVERYONE. Some guy on Mangafox reported a trojan in Fran 41. Hox and I both scanned the .rar and turned up nothing, but if you could all give it a shot with your respective software and get back to me with the results, that'd be super. [/Edit]

Fran's shoulders, bandage babes, nunservice-- final destination.

Also, mediafire is playing the race card (it's jealous I'm as white as the moon) and I can't upload anything to it, so download link is courtesy of Hox.

Franken Fran volume 5 CMs

I could be late to the party, but surely I'm not the only slowpoke on Earth. Anonymous on /a/ pointed these out:

A series of poorly made commercials for Franken Fran volume 5's release featuring a Fran cosplayer who can be rather cute at times. The first one has Kigitsu in front of some Fran pages in progress, which is a very neat, albeit very small, glimpse at his pencil work.

Ah, she was also on the inner flap of the volume 5 cover jacket, but I made a bad habit of not scanning those parts.

Franken Fran volume 5, chapters 36, 37 and Extra

Finishing off the volume with chapters 36, 37, and the Extra, which, once again, turns back to Sentinel.

With this, we've successfully closed the gap in Franken Fran. My most sincere thanks to Hox for translating and putting up with me.

We'll continue to see all of you each month by keeping up with the serialization in Champion Red, all thanks to Vexed Scans graciously getting us the raws.

Volume 5 Extra:

Did someone say "waifubot?"

Because I think I heard someone say "waifubot."

Franken Fran volume 5, chapter 34 and chapter 40

Another double release like last week. We start with volume 5, chapter 34 and jump ahead a bit with chapter 40, which is a magazine scan (thanks to Vexed over at Vexed Scans) and introduces a new character.

Snag them both:

Franken Fran volume 5, chapter 33

And chapter 33 is go! Another good Veronica chapter. We'll be back to scientific weirdness next time.

Go on:

Franken Fran volume 5, chapters 31 & 32

We've finally got volume 5 going, so you get two chapters today to celebrate! Actually, it's more like chapter 32 didn't really feel like Franken Fran much at all, so I'm posting it along with 31 to make up for it. Still a good chapter, though!

Delicious brown girls and more Kamen Rider. Boy howdy!

Chapter 31:
Chapter 32:

Unrelated to Fran, but I just noticed that Viz has put out the first volume of Dorohedoro. Go get it, faggots.

Legend of The Strongest Man Kurosawa

"What is that frightening man it's not moe like Fran at all in fact is that a bear good lord what the hell why isn't this post about Fran Fran Fran Fran Fran when Fran now I'm mad that this isn't Fran--"

Excellent question. If, for some bizarre reason, you didn't see the post on Hox's page first, I'll be helping out (see "ruining") Zawanons with Fukumoto's (Akagi, Kaiji, Ten) Legend of The Strongest Man Kurosawa when I've got the time and energy to do so.

This is the only post I'll make about it here on this blog, as far as I can see right now. Please direct yourself to Hox's site or the Zawanons mediafire page for all news and releases.

If you're a regular reader of Kurosawa, you'll know when I edited a chapter when you encounter something that makes you feel upset inside. If you haven't checked it out yet (yeah right), you'd might as well since there's no Franken Fran right now.

Franken Fran Chapter 39

Two Fran updates in 2 days? It must be Christmas. Here's chapter 39, raw graciously provided by Vexed once again.

Franken Fran Drama CD

[DOUBLE EDIT XTREME EDITION] I got a couple e-mails about the mediafire link to the Drama CD not working. Re-uploaded, replaced the old link below with the new one. Should work now! Sorry it took me so long. [/DOUBLE EDIT XTREME EDITION]

[Edit] If you happen to download the mediafire file, please be a bro and stick the .rar in whichever folder your torrent downloads default to, and download this torrent file to help me seed! [/Edit]

Hunted down a copy of the Fran drama CD that was mentioned in the Volume 4 author's notes and ripped it. Dozo.

Ami Koshimizu (Horo) and Chihari Minori (Yuki Nagato) are Fran and Veronica. The files range between 160-170kbps. I realize this is not the highest bitrate, but it's more than listenable given that it is not music.

The CD is close to an hour of the chapters Chrysalis, My Little Sister, and Lust fully acted out with sound effects, in case you're not familiar with what a drama CD is. Simply look up the chapters of the same name if you need a refresher on what's going on.

Man, Fran is a lot more unnerving with all the screaming, sawing, splashing and sucking.

Friday, May 21, 2010


[Edit] Moon amazon finally has the cover image up.[/Edit]

My order is in. Hox and I will get on it as soon as it gets here!

Franken Fran Chapter 38

Who said our Franken Fran releases only went up to chapter 30? [/Kubo]

Yes, it is true! More Fran! We pick up with Champion RED scans provided by the awesome Vexed.

This starts on chapter 38, and we will fill in the gap once volume 5 becomes available to order.

Go on, git!

Franken Fran Volume 4, Chapter 30

Excellent chapter, this time. Sadly, last full chapter of the volume. Extra chapter next update, and then that's all for quite a while.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Franken Fran Volume 4, Chapter 29

Couldn't use the credit jokey-joke from this chapter because it gives things away.

Anyway, I've been waiting to get this one out for a while, because I think it's particularly amusing. Hope you all enjoy it, too.

Franken Fran, Volume 4 Chapter 28

Not the most exciting chapter this time around, but it has a laugh or two, and the 3rd execution was cool. Also, Fran in SUPER-SURGEON mode again, which is always neat. We also see a familiar face, as you can see by the image above.

Get it here:

I should hope you don't need me to tell you how to find Fearless Translator Hox by now.

This chapter is bananas. That's all I really have to say about it.

Franken Fran Volume 4, Chapter 26

Here's Franken Fran Chapter 26. The last page to this one is quite possibly the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life.

Get it here:

Go thank Hox.

Franken Fran Volume 4, Chapter 25

The latest chapter, which is heavy on Veronica with a side dish of Adorea as well. If you like them as much as I do, this chapter's for you.

Get it here:

Also, by now I shouldn't have to tell you to go see Hox.

Franken Fran Volume 4, Chapter 24


The second release from Hox and I, Franken Fran chapter 24!

A quick note about the 2-page spread-- I didn't notice this was actually a spread until after I'd finished typesetting and uploading the chapter. I quickly attempted to join the two pages together, but since I had cropped and leveled them separately, they weren't going to fit together 100%.

I am also not a master when it comes to graphic arts, so this is the best it'll get without re-scanning the pages in. I really don't think it's so bad. Let me know how you feel about it, yeah?

Anyhow, as always, go give thanks to your lord and master, Hox!

Download it here, or on Hox's page as well!

Franken Fran Volume 3 Extra

Why have I been so quiet lately? Because I've been busy getting to work on THIS project! That's right, Franken Fran will now be back in business!

I have teamed up with good ol' Hox, who is translating, to scan and edit Franken Fran from here on, starting with the volume 3 extra chapter. It's a very good series, which I feel didn't deserve a whole year of being neglected. If you never bothered to pick up Fran, perhaps now is a good time to start?

In this short little extra, we learn a bit of back story on an old friend and resident of the Madaraki estate.

I've uploaded the chapter to online reading services, but you can also get a .rar of the chapter right here!

Franken Fran Volume 3 Extra

Also, please head over to Hox's site as well! The man does a great service to the community by scanlating very good series that tend to be criminally underrated. You can find Hox here!

Hayate no Gotoku! Chapter #168

Earlier, I saw someone link to translations and raws for Hayate no Gotoku! Chapter 168, and since I wasn't doing anything else, I decided to have a go at editing it.

If you're into the series, go ahead and grab the chapter here:

Lost Boy is lost

I'm completely furious about it, but at the same time, I can't help but laugh at how appropriate it is..

"Lost Boy," the ED single for Thriller Restaurant, which I planned to rip, has been...Get ready, it's pretty hilarious-- LOST.

It was supposed to arrive on my doorstep on the 18th, but it still shows being stuck in a sorting facility on FedEx's tracking. I still will do it, if it ever arrives, but I can't really promise anything right now.

Also, on top of that, my computer imploded on itself yesterday morning, and its future is looking a little grim. I am making this post from a family member's computer.

Taking these two things into consideration, I may not have the equipment or the money needed to do any releases for quite some time. Please make a note of it.

Sorry, guys.

Colossal nutbladder failure

{EDIT} Some kind souls have pointed out that in the lighter-colored images, you can make out a small hair or string that got caught on the scanner bed. It's not very noticeable, but anyone with moderate skill in photoshop (not me, basically) could fix it easily. My apologies!!{/EDIT}

The Shadow of The Colossus doujin "Kyozou Musume" got here sooner than expected, and I got it scanned sooner than expected as well! If you downloaded that previous megaupload file on the net full of the fuzzy photos of the pages, delete that and get right on this. These are high-quality scans.

Kyozou Musume is a Shadow of The Colossus fanbook done by Shigatake, the artist of the ever hilarious Habanero-tan comics. The focus of the book is the moefication of the monsters present in the game-- and the results are USUALLY sexy or cute.

About the filesize...Um, well, colossal filesize for colossal girls? The artwork is absolutely beautiful in this book, and I was getting some nastiness in the scans at 400dpi, so I did it in 600dpi! Print them on poster paper, hang them on your walls! Make pillow cases with them-- you can do neat things with resolutions so high.

Okay, I'll level with you. I was just too exhausted to go back and scale all of them down half a size; but when it comes to graphic arts, I'd say it's better to have more than you need than too little. I'm sure someone could find good use for them.

Go get it!
(C77)Shadow of The Colossus - Kyozou Musume

Monday, February 15, 2010


Goodness, I'm back! Not only am I back, but I'm back with a present! A present I promised a certain image board I would scan over a month ago, but never got around to it!

GPZ06 was what became known as the "semi-official" Strike Witches doujin peddled off at 2008's Winter Comiket by the series director Kazuhiro Takamura. This particular work has no erotic content, stories, or even 4-koma; No, this book is merely 35 pages or so of production materials for the anime.

There are a couple original images of Lynette (in B&W) and then a clean B&W version of the cover image. There is also a single page containing a wall of text, and a picture of a can of SPEM with Shirley on it. However, everything is clean lineart for the DVD covers, and a bunch of pencil work for scenes in the series.

It is worth noting that much of the scenes focused on in this book are the bathing and swimming bits. I assume this is because Takamura felt that they had extreme artistic value, and were a high point in his career. I can figure no other possible explanation.

There's also a page that is full of nothing but the girls' derrieres, and the caption "Whose is it hip?" challenging you to identify the girls using nothing but their badonkadonk. Can you do it?

It is also worth noting that while the scans start at page 03, there isn't actually any page 01 or page 02 in the book. There was a piece of blank orange paper inserted before it, so maybe that was considered to be the first two? Who knows. In any case, nothing is missing.

Go ahead and get it down here:
Strike Witches - GPZ06

Coming soon, the Shadow of The Colossus doujin "Kyozou Musume"(as soon as it arrives in the mail ((any day now)) and I make some decent scans):

((NOTE: This album also contains "Zakuro," the song played when Seras goes against Zorin, and the ED for Hellsing Ultimate 7, "Shintou Shite." There seems to have been a little confusion regarding that.))

THE DAWN! And only 4 days late, too! You can't get much more fashionably late than that. (The scans I did also can't get much more fashionably HORRIBLE. Seriously, they are bad this time.)

THE DAWN contains the awesome ED for Hellsing Ultimate 6, Suilen's "Magnolia."

Though, to call this a "single" would be an understatement. It's more like a mini-album, given that it has 5 tracks on it. If you're not necessarily a Hellsing fan, but enjoy Suilen, this might not be a bad grab for you!

Ahh, it was nice to put together a relatively small release for once. I imagine Seamo's "Lost Boy" will be as easy when it comes in about 8 days.

Anyway, your usual download options are here:



As per usual, these rips also have torrents listed over on Tokyo Toshokan, Jishaku Toshokan, and Nyaatorrents. These direct download links are here in case those torrents ever wind up dead. Should these links break as well, please contact me and I'll get on it as soon as I see the e-mail.

And now for something completely different-- the OST for Trapeze!

If you weren't fond of the Railgun or NEEDLESS soundtracks perhaps there's something of interest to you in this one. Some really neat, and sometimes strange, stuff here. I like it!

And since I'm sure you're wondering, Mayumi-chan's theme is track 5, "It's LOVE" and FUKUICHI DESU's them is track 10, "Hampuku yokotobi". But hey! Don't stop there! Cruise down to track 11 for some more sweet jams by Denki Groove with "Mononoke Dance" if you liked the OP and ED songs.

You can diagnose yourself either

It seems like it was only a few days ago that I said I'd be uploading more stuff in the future-- Oh, wait! It was!

Got myself a nice shiny Toaru Kagaku no Railgun OST 01, complete with booklet and case scans, fresh out of the EAC oven and ready to serve. Put on some "Uiharu Kazari" and just take it easy, yeah?

Now in two very distinct flavors:

320kbps mp3 rip

FLAC rip

Enjoy the music, friends. That's why I do this. Trapeze OST tomorrow or the next day, by the way!

Monday, February 1, 2010


Take note of some future releases you can expect to see on here soon (assuming no one rips or scans them before I do-- if it ain't broke, don't fix it, you know.)

-Toaru Kagaku no Railgun OST1
-Trapeze OST
-Hellsing OVA 6 ED (Yes, I know, late. But we still don't have 320kbps or FLAC for it.)
-Thriller Restaurant ED (as soon as it is released mid-February)
-Strike Witches GPZ06 doujin
-Moe of The Colossus doujin

I'll begin the scanning process for the doujin works as soon as my new scanner arrives (some time this week.)


Get your manly, hotblooded soundtrack here! (Protip: If you don't save "Repose" you're a poofter.)

I'm sad to announce, however, that this soundtrack does not include the piano version of "Modern Strange Cowboy". Please also note that the tracks "Fatal Wound" and "Magma Kid" are by a band called "Gargoyle". I erroneously added the series music composer in the tags for these files, so please correct them if you're anal about that sort of thing. I have an awful upload speed, so I don't think I'll be fixing the info on those files any time soon.
