It was worse than I feared. I have about 10 pages typeset because I exported them. The rest…
YEAH, I JUST SPENT THREE HOURS SCANNING IN THE ENTIRE VOLUME ALL OVER AGAIN
that was a lot of vodka and misery but now i am ready to attempt more misery hopefully with less vodka.

Hello future translation easter eggs
I’m drinking alcohol out of a Diavolo/King Crimson glass. This is going to result in me not remembering how I cleaned the pages. (And I have to do the cleaning ALL OVER AGAIN before I can even THINK about creating easter eggs because I was too drunk to typeset properly.)
Shitfuckcocksucker my files for JoJo 5 next volume are corrupt and I forgot to back up for a while. I have the volume raws, but not the edited version for anything past the first five pages. AND I WAS ALMOST DONE TOO OH GOD all of my beautiful beautiful work and all the hand-written SFX and I think I’m gonna cry.
This calls for alcohol. A lot of alcohol.
Drunken Shizuka editing night? DRUNKEN SHIZUKA EDITING NIGHT.
Just as an FYI:
I’m back from Washington now! Thank you for being so patient with me. It is my goal to have everything finished within a week. Of course, this is me, and even after the last time when I pulled an all nighter to finish on time, for historical Shizuka time please interpret “one week” as “when Viz eventually gets around to publishing it”.
I’ve been doing JoJo scan team work a long time. For years. In fact I think as far as things go, I might actually have been on JoJo scan teams for a greater period of time than anybody else in the history of not really legal English scans of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.
However, things change, and people burn out. That’s why I’m going to be quitting scanning JoJo. I’m going to try and pass part 5 off to someone els——
Fuck I can’t even take this seriously. I fail at April Fool’s.
I was REALLY hoping to get volume 50 done before next week, because I’m going to Washington state (I have family up there) for a while and I have no idea whether or not I’ll have access to work on the chapters while I’m away. (My laptop is a piece of shit that doesn’t reliably run the Photoshops. I do most of my work on a desktop.)
I know none of you guys reading this care about my personal life (don’t worry! It’s perfectly normal to be here just for the JoJos and my abuse of parentheses), but I’ve got to basically work overtime leading up to the trip and as such I’m at about a 5% likelihood to finish before I leave.
I’m so sorry. The delays are absolutely inexcusable on my part, but I’m still plugging along!!! I would rather work slowly than give up and I have so much of a commitment to getting this project finished that even if I’m going to be working so hard that my fingers feel like they’re going to bleed for the next few months I’m going to make it happen, because I care about JoJo and I care about JoJo fans. I wish I were a true superhuman so I could make this all happen faster.
