I just got a hold of the Jan issue of Comp Ace and took a look at the contents page...it seems that Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology and Tales of the Abyss: Senketsu no Asch (next chapter in the March issue of Comp Ace so one more month wait) are not the only stuff from Tales of Magazine that migrated there. Vesperia Gag Theater Tales V also migrated there (anyone wants to t/l? :x). I thought it ended with Tales of Magazine...since Vol 14 didn't say anything about it...

Valkyria Chronicles is serialised in that magazine O_o

And the paper is really nice and the ink is even, so it looks like scanlations for those two series will be continued using magazine raws, but I currently need a translator for Tales of the Abyss: Senketsu no Asch (and lots of other stuff I plan on releasing) cause the translator I had on it hasn't replied for a long time and I'm calling her MIA for now, she was supposed to be sending me t/l for the next chapter soon) and someone to help with Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology and maybe t/l Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 (there are only two volumes) also...

Won't be getting the Jan issue of Comptiq so soon, the Dec issue is only coming in this Monday (sea shipment, and the Dec issue is released on 10th Nov) which is the issue where the next chapter of Tales of Vesperia continues its serialisation in, since it comes by sea shipment (Comp Ace comes by air shipment), but I'm getting the Dec issue anyway since there seems to be something related to Tales of Magazine there...not sure, but Comptiq might be having a section for Tales of Magazine, where all the Tales of news are put there. I'll know when I get the Dec issue and look at it...

Will also be collecting the Jan issue of Dengeki Maoh at the same time when Comptiq is in...

I also took a subscription for both Comptiq and Comp Ace.

*sigh* More translators disappearing without telling me... For once, I'm glad that Ju-da-su ([livejournal.com profile] argentum_canine) is the translator for quite a number of Eternal's projects...nonetheless, I need fresh translator blood for Eternal once again...

I just got a hold of the latest issue (Vol 14) of Tales of Magazine and took a quick look at when the next issue is going to be out...and if I'm interpreting it right (I don't really understand Japanese very well), but it seems that Tales of Magazine will be stopping publication, maybe forever. The latest Tales of Series news will be published in the main magazine, a monthly game magazine called Comptiq. Comptiq also has some manga that are being serialised in it, and it also has a magazine where they specially publish manga in, a monthly manga magazine called Compace. As for the manga that are being serialised in Tales of Magazine, this is what is going to happen...

- Tales of Vesperia (To continue serialisation in Comptiq)
- Tales of the Abyss: Senketsu no Asch (To continue serialisation in Compace)
- Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (To continue serialisation in Compace)
- Tales of Phantasia (Final chapter in Vol 14 of Tales of Magazine)
- Tales of Hearts (This is just a really long introduction to the game, where only the very first part of the game is serialised. The manga has already ended, but there is still a chance it will continue serialisation in the future)
- Tales of Vesperia: Flynn (Still no news on when it will resume serialisation, currently still on hiatus)

I've checked with Kinokuniya and they bring in both magazines, so scanlations for these series I'm releasing under Eternal won't change. I'll be buying both Comptiq and Compace monthly, and I'll continue to release them using magazine scans, unless the printing and/or quality of the paper are bad enough that it will take quite a lot of time to clean/fix even after doing my pre-cleaning on the scans (my pre-cleaning technique for the manga from Tales of Magazine is very nice that it reduces the overall time needed to clean a page, it's actually on par with tankoubon quality), which then I'll switch completely to tankoubon scans. Tales of Vesperia won't be an issue, since scans from game magazines are always very nice and the ink is all even and printed on decent/good paper (I'm almost pretty sure that the paper used to print Comptiq is the same as Tales of Magazine and the printing is very nice, I've seen Comptiq on the shelves and I've looked at the paper if my memory serves me right), I'm just a bit worried for Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology and Tales of the Abyss: Senketsu no Asch since Compace is a manga magazine and the quality of the printing and paper may be quite bad. We'll see.

Why can't they put all the manga in the same magazine =/ Buying two magazines means spending more money, even though I don't need to get Tales of Magazine anymore(?).

I also need to start catching up to the scanlations for Tales of Vesperia...that will be the number one priority for Eternal as far as releases go. Tankoubon version re-releases for Tales of Vesperia still won't be happening so soon, as I'm still more focused on working on the magazine version.

Just posting for people that might be interested in the news.

Pfffffft

Okay, so in the end, I did not go to work =T Damn that time of the month. I was having cramps and having this need to go to the bathroom before I even went out of the house. It couldn't wait and it was kind of a bit bad, so I had no choice but to tell that I won't be coming to work and taking leave...ugh. It would be okay if I was already at work, and this normally happens late morning/early afternoon every time it comes (but then that's because it starts in the morning, but this month it started early afternoon so things are a bit screwed up). But noooooo, it happened so early in the morning at around 5:30 am and I couldn't go back to sleep much and by the time it was time I had to leave for work, it had reached the point that I cannot go out as I need to be near a bathroom at all times due to this strange accompanying stomachache whenever I have cramps.

But later in the afternoon when it was a better and the weather was good, so I still went down to Liang Court in the end...so I collected Vol 12 of Tales of Magazine and Oct issue of Dengeki Maoh. Also stopped by the shop on the way back and got Dissidia Final Fantasy. All that transfer rebate from the bus & MRT transfers XD

Ugh...I think the cramps are coming back accompanied by the strange stomachache and the need to go to the bathroom...but at least I'm back home already...m(_ _)m

I finally upgraded to a Paid LiveJournal today and changed the layout that can only be used for paid accounts. Reason, I needed the extra user pics for the new flood of Tales of Series manga that was recently published in a new zoukan magazine published by Kadokawa Shoten called Tales of Magazine. Of course, I'll be scanlating them all for my manga group XD

The list:
- Tales of Vesperia (Official manga game seralisation)
- Tales of Vesperia ~Flynn, The Holy Silver Knight~ (ToV side story focusing on Flynn)
- Vesperia gag-theater (Just for laughs)
- Tales of Phantasia (Official manga game seralisation)
- Tales of the Abyss -Asch the Bloody- (ToA side story focusing on Asch)
- TOW Radiant Mythology (Official manga game seralisation?)

I'll also be scanning in all the Game pages (Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Hearts) and (gasp) Tales of the Abyss anime pages which will start airing in Japan in October 2008 (I can't wait ^_^ I love Tales of the Abyss). Watch this Journal for it XD

P.S. I've always wanted to use this layout. It's just so CUTE!!!
