FAQ – The Latest [+Extras]

MFG

Q: What is this?
A: I translate the Japanese Kanzenban of Dragon Ball.

Q: Where can I download it?
A: For now, BakaBT. Read their FAQ if you have issues downloading. Download links will be posted here once new chapters are ready in late December.

Q: Can’t I just read it online?
A: You can, but I don’t really want you to. BakaBT lets users swap out old volumes with new ones, so once I’m gone, the most up to date versions will be found on there.

Q: I thought you quit after Freeza?
A: I intended to. ZQScans got a translator for the Artificial Human/Cell arc, and I wound up proofreading his work, which was a lot of effort. I decided it’d be faster to just do it all myself, know it was done right, and get it over with.

Q: I want to help! What can I do?
A: The only thing I need are proofreaders. Read new chapters as they’re posted and alert me of typos or indescrepencies as soon as possible.

Q: Will you retranslate volumes 13 and 14?
A: I based these two (and parts of 15) on old scanlations instead of completely retranslating them. I would like to redo them someday, but since I made sure to correct most of the original script’s issues, it’s a low priority at the moment.

Q: Will you be doing the Majin Buu arc?
A: I really, really doubt it.


Cover Artwork
As some of you know from Twitter, I’ve been working on redoing all of the Kanzenban cover art. Compared to my old ones, these new covers feature more accurate fonts and restored artwork. I also redid my index pages so that they use the original Japanese chapter titles instead of the American ones. They’re all included in a single 7z file below.

If you’d like to compare the covers with my old ones to see what I changed, click the links below. Volumes 13 and 14 are newly digitized, volume 20 is color corrected and features much more artwork, volume 21 is no longer overly-sharpened, and volume 22 shows how substantially better the outlines are preserved.

If you kept my naming structure, you can just drop these into your archives and replace the old ones.
