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! :)
