Dragon Age December 2010 issue preordered.

Sorry for a lack of updates, but I really don't have much to post about.  I might try doing the Saikin no Dead spin-off or the 4 koma parody Highschool of the Head sometime, but those are kind of low priority and I'm occupied with a lot of other things at the moment.

Anyway, this post is just sort of an update to let you know I'm alive, and as the title says, I preordered the next issue of Dragon Age, which comes out November 9th.  This issue is supposed to contain the next chapter of HOTD, and I'll try to get it out as quickly as I can once I get the magazine.  Many thanks to those who've donated or supported my scanlation through the ads on this site!  Buying things from Japan is very expensive right now, so every little bit helps.

  3. While I am not so sure how clicking ads would help you generate enough money for manga, I try to click it a couple times whenever I remember to. And although its only been one translation, keep up the awesome work!

    Oh, and thanks for the update, thought H.O.T.D. was on hiatus again xD

  9. Will you also be scanning the SchDead Museum booklet that's coming with the magazine?

  10. krylonblue: If I have to take it apart to get decent scans, then I won't bother. But if I can get it looking okay without debinding it, then sure, maybe.

  11. Okay, scratch that. The booklet ended up being a lot bigger than I expected (it's 80 pages and includes a lot more than the SchDead Museum stuff, apparently). I just ordered a second copy, so yes, I will definitely scan it.

  18. Thanks for responding about the SchDead Museum booklet. Really looking forward to it and the new chapter.

  19. Dragon Age would probably be in tomorrow if not for the fact that it's Veteran's Day. Because of Veteran's Day, I probably won't get the magazine until Friday, and because my Fridays are busy, it probably won't be finished until Saturday.

  20. HOTDcups dont worry take your time, where not even paying you, you are doing this from the botton of your heart, so take as much time as you you like.

  21. Thanks for the update, I'm sure me & all the other lurkers who go on this site appreciate you clearing up when the chapter is going to be released.

  22. by the way, are you ever going to translate volume 6 somewhere down the line? Yeah, I realize XLG already released volume 6 but those are magazine scans. There are already volume 6 scans floating around the net so you wouldn't have to buy it & it would be keeping up with XLG's previous consistency of releasing the volume tank scans when their available.

  23. dgraymankicksass: I know there are raws of volume 6 out, but the quality is not very good. I'd like to do something with the volumes, but it's going to take a while so I'm not going to go into detail here.

  24. Thanks for the update, we all really appreciate it, and take your time <3 Just picking the manga up and taking the time and effort and money to get it to translate it is enough! I'm excited, but take your time and thank you again <3

  25. Greetings from Russia!
    Me and a lot of my comrades are waiting this scanlate from you. Your work is like a flare, that was given from one, defeated warrior, to another.
    Official localizatioin in my Motherland will not be able in nearly years, so you are only hope of us. Not only us: people of all world are waiting your work!
    There is one proverb in my country: "You gonna hurry - you gonna suck." Don't be fast in work, comrade!
    Gool luck! I should find any way to donate you from Russia. It's bad, that i can't just send you couple of bottles of vodka.

  26. Hey HOTDcups,
    I was wondering if you can share where you get your copy of Dragon Age as my provider sometimes has it and the last lot(Nov issue) was sold out in 1 day and I haven't been able to find another place that sells Dragon Age regularly?

    Sorry for the late response, but I didn't see your post. I get it from Amazon in order to get it as soon as possible, but the December issue sold out extremely quickly because of the limited art book. It's not unusual for this to happen when there's a super awesome promotional item included. To ensure that you get the issue, you have to preorder.
