Sai Taker, Volume 1, Chapter 2 is done!

After four grueling months, Chapter 2 is finally finished. I think I did a better job cleaning it, and my editor/wife and I did much better as far as redrawing this time.

I am having some difficulty adjusting to the use of large text/small text in this series. The (Japanese) text size varies a lot, and I'm having trouble sort of mirroring it in English.

Anyway, without further ado, here is Chapter 2! Please note that Sai Taker contains nudity and adult situations.

A couple of side notes:

Yuuma has been changed to Yuma, because that's how her name appears in English in Chapter 2.

My wife caught a slight error in Chapter 1. Takabayashi is not Mizuho's last name, it's Ichikawa. (Her full name is used in Chapter 2.)

This means that a) the Takabayashi mentioned in Chapter 1 refers to another person, or b) Mizuho is incorrectly referred to as Takabayashi in the Japanese version of the chapter. Chapter 1 has been corrected and is available here.

And finally, if anyone is interested in editing or knows where to get high-quality scans of this series, please let me know. We need all the help we can get! :)

Sai Taker, Volume 1, Chapter 1 is done!

I'm happy to announce that the first chapter is finally finished. Please note that Sai Taker contains nudity and adult situations. You can download the chapter here.

It would've been done sooner, but I ran into some issues. First, the only raws publicly available online have a giant watermark on the bottom right corner of each page, which looks hideous and obscures some of the artwork. So rather than using pre-made raws, I'm going to have to buy the volumes, then scan and clean the raws myself (yay).

Second, this series requires a LOT of redrawing, so I had to cut some corners to release the chapter faster. Hopefully my editor and I can work more quickly and produce a higher-quality product with the next chapter. The translation is great, but I'll admit the cleaning and redrawing needs a little work.

Also, I want to wish my editor (and wife) a speedy recovery. She's currently recovering from Gender Reassignment Surgery. Luckily, though, she doesn't have a counter on her chest. :P

Stay tuned for more Sai Taker! :)
