Tomorrow's Joe v19

Last volume will be out on 27th. Maybe a little earlier but we'll see. Won't say much now since I'm saving my thoughts for the final release.

Tomorrow's Joe v18

Just 2 more volumes to go! A lot of you won't be so thrilled about the coming fight with Harimau because his fighting style seems a little out of line within the realm of realism established so far in the manga, but just enjoy it for what it is and the whole purpose of the arc. If all goes well, v19 will be out next week.

Tomorrow's Joe v17

Sorry it took so long to get v17 out. The delay's all my fault, really. I got sidetracked for about a week with other things, but in any case, only 3 more volumes to go! An April finish should be likely.

Hope you enjoyed the volume. There's a lot of fun character interactions in v17, rather than the usual training and fighting.

Tomorrow's Joe v16

Tomorrow's Joe v16 is out, bringing the fight with Kim to a thrilling conclusion and setting things up for the next arc. You may notice that Rivera and Jose are called "Libera" and "Hose" in the manga on page 232. But considering the manga has stuff like gimnasium for gymnasium, I'm just gonna ignore it and go with my gut instinct. Though concerning the name Pinang Sarawak, I've got no clue and I'm just reaching blindly. Next volume won't be out for at least 2 weeks, most likely.

Tomorrow's Joe v15

Volume 15 is now out! Hope you'll enjoy the volume, as did I. Kajiwara and Chiba did well in making Kim Yong-bi, a throwaway character in essence, into an intimidating foe that doesn't feel so "throwaway." Definitely the most significant opponent outside of the 3 major guys (Rikiishi, Rivera, Mendoza). On an interesting trivia-note, the Korean edition changed Kim into a Thai boxer by the name of King Cobra (seriously now?) due to localization decisions.

If things go well, v16 will come out next week.

Tomorrow's Joe v14

Ta-da! Volume 14 is done, thanks to the 3 people who volunteered to typeset. I don't really need anymore now since I can't really translate fast enough to continually give scripts to 4 typesetters. It's gonna be full steam-ahead until the end from here on. Expect a volume roughly every 2-3 weeks. We're aiming to finish before summer is upon us.

Tomorrow's Joe v13 (Finally)

Well would you look at that: http://hoxtranslations.blogspot.com/2013/02/joes-slump.html

That means in the span of one whole year, I managed to get out 2 FREAKING VOLUMES of Joe. Clearly, this is unacceptable, and it can't continue if I'm to finish Joe this year. So I am hereby calling a temporary hiatus on everything I translate that's not called Tomorrow's Joe until it's finished. I think I'd ideally need at least 2 or 3 more typesetters (each with a fair amount of free time) to get the remaining 7 volumes done by the end of the year. So if you have some typesetting experience and want to help out, please do email me. In the meantime, I'll just busy myself translating all the way to v20, and once all the scripts are done, it shouldn't be hard to quickly pump out releases. Joe WILL be finished this year, no matter what happens. Happyscans and I are not backing out from that promise.
