Update: I fixed Goku’s missing hair strands in the cover for volume 13. Download the updated version here, or redownload the pack.
As most of you already know, I’ll be back to finish the Artificial Human / Cell arc soon. This time around, rather than literally lose sleep trying to keep a self-imposed deadline, I’ll be working on this at a much more leisurely pace.
I originally said I’d return around late June or early July 2014, but between social obligations, a relationship, and shit-talking on /r/dbz under an alias, I’m running super late. I planned to have three volumes done by now, but I just couldn’t do it in time. I’m still one chapter away from finishing volume 23.
I plan to get up to volume 25 or 26 before I start posting again, so it may be another couple months. Doing it this way lets me have a schedule again, which lets me saturate MangaUpdates, which gets the word out. I’ll be sure to put something in the sidebar sooner or later that shows my progress, so you’ll know I didn’t just disappear or anything.
In the meantime, I’ve been working hard to give you all a little gift for waiting. 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.
Thanks for being patient.
