SMALL ANNOUNCEMENT [Apr. 2nd, 2008|12:34 pm]
KEITH Ltd. Scanlations

Quick announcement concerning the Fire Emblem scanlations. I recently discovered an official spelling of a name in the last volume of the manga (which I have not actually sat down and read through yet), so I'm going back to change all the previous scans containing this name and will use the official spelling in coming scans. The name in question is the English spelling of "Aru", the main character; I have been using the spelling "Al", but the official spelling given in the final volume is "Alle". I'm in the process of fixing all of the old scans now, so that the scans will be consistent. Sorry about that!

Poster Permits: Comments are more than welcome, but please keep it on-topic -- relevant to either the manga or the scanlation job. Also, please no spoilers!
Scanlator's Notes: More apologies for the delay and the two mangled spreads in here. This is a rather large post, with over 20 pages contained inside. Dial-up users be warned. But finally, I bring you the conclusion of Chapter 1! I hope you enjoy.
P.S. Spreads are evil. Carry on.

There"s a lot of action in this one. HURRAH VIOLENCECollapse )

Thanks for reading once again. Look out for the next post, in which we'll kick off Chapter 2: Grizel, Place of Execution!

And the plot thickens...Collapse )

Thanks for reading, guys, and look out for the next update, with which we'll probably be wrapping up the first chapter -- an extra long post!

Poster Permits: Comments are more than welcome, but please keep it on-topic -- relevant to either the manga or the scanlation job. Also, please no spoilers!
Scanlator's Notes: This one is a longer section than the last one. Keep in mind that I try to do sections by whole scenes, so length varies. Also, because I apparently could no longer contain myself (and because I no longer do the in-between-the-pages commentary), there is now a "Post Snark" section at the end of the post, under the cut, to avoid unintentional spoiling.

How do you like them apples?Collapse )

That's it till next time! Stay tuned! :D

Since there are going to be a lot of posts for FE:HtS, I figured I'd make an index of all of them to keep things organized, and for new readers. Here you can find every manga post, sorted by volume and chapter. Enjoy!

Yes! It's finally the debut post of keith_ltd's main project: Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi! (The title means "Champion's Sword".) I know a lot of you guys watch (or watched) this comm for doujinshi scanlations, but even if you have no interest (or knowledge) in Fire Emblem, I highly recommend this manga anyway! It's an excellent swords-and-sorcery manga, very classic-y, and the art is fantastic and the characters are lovable. I haven't finished reading the entire manga myself, but it's engaging and well done. The story is by Izawa Hiroshi, and the (fantastic) art is by Yamada Koutarou.

For those Fire Emblem fans in the audience, Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi is a spin-off of the plot of Fire Emblem 6: The Sealed Sword. It's sort of a retake on the plot, adding bits to it, as well as new characters. So yes, there will be some familiar faces in this manga as well.

All of the scanning/editing/translating is done by me, with some awesome lackey work help from ormery, my fellow FE fantard. This is possibly the most challenging scanlation I've done to date -- there is heavy use of tones, two-page spreads that are my worst nightmare and a lot of text imposed over images. I'm still not a pro at scanlating, so this is just further practice. I'm sure it'll help me improve a lot. So, I hope you enjoy this manga and have as much fun with it as I am!

Scanlator's Notes: Here's to a happy start. Apologies about mangling the spread. Those things are a bitch when you're scanning from a bound volume. ormery has just one thing to say: "PONIES."

Long ago, there was a great war between men and dragons...Collapse )

I hope you guys enjoyed it. Watch for more!

New management (okay not really) [Nov. 27th, 2007|01:10 pm]

A few announcements. Firstly, you're going to start seeing posts by runawayballista instead of this LJ. It's still me, just a different (and new!) LJ.

Secondly, in light of many recent events, some public, others private, I think I have decided to more or less stop scanlating doujinshi. Probably the only exception to this will be scanlations distributed privately or done as a favor for a non-Japanese-speaking friend. I know this may come as a disappointment to many people, but fear not -- I'm still doing scanlations at all!

This brings me to my third announcement. It's long overdue that I started really working on the scanlations for the Fire Emblem manga, and now I am finally finding a bit of time and motivation (now that my other scanlation projects are pretty much kaput) to work on it. So, I hope you all stick around to read it. There are 11 volumes of Fire Emblem: Hasha no Tsurugi, and as far as I can see right now, they'll be posted by chapter (for organizational purposes). There'll probably be a stickied post soon to serve as an index for the manga posts.

not a real update... [Jul. 22nd, 2007|02:14 pm]

...I know, I know. Not a real update at all. :c But I did spot this recently and thought I'd share it. I was browsing Yonata's site (one of my absolute most favorite GenHaya artists) and saw that she had posted a little mini comic for Genma's birthday, which was on Tuesday the 17th. I thought it was kind of adorable and funny, so I figured I'd post a translation. (There's a lot of text.)

The image is here.

Translation under the cut!Collapse )

Poor Genma. *snicker* Hope you enjoyed, and be sure to check out the rest of Yonata's site. She has some terrific artwork of a whole bunch of Naruto characters!
