  1. Pretty cool of you to take up this project; keep up the good work. Will there be a pdf when you're done with this volume?

    1. Hahaha I hadn't thought that far ahead. Yeah, I can make a PDF, but it still probably wouldn't be checked against the original Japanese, since it's pretty time-consuming and monotonous for me. It also probably wouldn't include pictures, as I don't have a scanner and wouldn't want to use them without express permission of whoever provides them, but yeah. I do have a compiled document for the translation, so it shouldn't be difficult. :)

  2. I bundled the images for all three volumes from sone public RAWs I found a while back.

    I packed them into a .rar and uploaded them here:

    I clumsily joined the color spreads together. It doesn't look great, but I couldn't manage any better.

    I hope you'll put the pics to good use.

  5. I had been searching this book of long time and finally i found it here, i have two questions, first, ¿do you have pdf version? reading the comments, you say you'll do the pdf version but i can't found it. And second, ¿are you going to continue with this proyect? Because the proyect have been stopped since 2013 i guess. I expect yes because i want to read more of this book and i found this proyect has at least three volumes, some pages and forums say it:

  6. First of all, Thank you for your translation.

    I just have a question?
    Do you have a compilation of Vol. 1 somewhere? Like a PDF, maybe?

    1. I've been meaning to go over and spotcheck it thoroughly before I compile it, but that kind of check is the most boring part of the whole process so I've been putting it off, sorry. :'D I'll get to it someday. I'm checking volume 2 as I go along, though, so that won't be a problem from here on out!

    2. Fadel, you could try making your own PDF in the meantime. I made one for personal use myself using Pages so I can attest to it being very doable - just insert your downloads of the imgs and copy azurill's kindly translated text and format accordingly.

      And azurill - glad to see you're still chugging along. I'll keep faithfully checking back for updates! The long awaited story of 37564 is so close I can taste it. Very excited.

  7. Hey, any news on how The Tragedy of 37564 is coming along? I'm still eagerly looking forward to it - hope it's going well. j

    Also, are you on Tumblr or something along those lines?
