On a completely unrelated side note to any of the series, I just found out that Hanpen won’t be illustrating Blade Dance anymore due to poor health :'(. You will be missed. Although the new artist, Nimura, has some pretty epic art I will miss the super detailed hair of Hanpen.
In my depression, I secretly read 2.5 chapters of Canceller (because I’m evil like that) and after an emotional roller-coaster of going from depressed to angry to delighted with Hitto’s antics I feel much better now. Expect Chapter 6 of Canceller later this week. Kenja ni Natta will probably go on mini-hiatus unless people really want more chapters of it. Like I said many times, I’m not really qualified to translate Kenja but if people enjoy the read as much as I do then I’ll put in the effort.
Also, here’s a sample of the new Blade Dance artist. The color pages are great and all but the black and white volume illustrations by Nimura as honestly quite lacking in detail. They look more like a manga drawing than a novel one.
