Act 49 (57)

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Many months late, here is Act 49! And its 2003 reprint equivalent, Act 57! Since I only did one chapter, I decided to go into even more detail with the comparisons between them. Namely I noted some things that I was too lazy to do before, like noses being added and text being moved around. Someday I want to go back and add those things to the earlier chapters, but this one has absolutely everything my eyes could find. (Assuming I didn’t forget to type it up or accidentally overwrite the entry, anyway.) Every single page but the last one has some sort of difference.

It’s only a matter of hours before I would have hit that thirteen month mark again. But I wanted to see how many other things I could get done first, so I only started on this a few days ago. Living on the edge, of course. I still don’t want to make any promises, but I’ll be shocked if there isn’t another update in five weeks or so.

Daizenshuu 7 Timeline Revised

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Well, it turns out I’m still a deadbeat after all. But even when I’m lying in a gutter addicted to Star Trek or Pokemon, I still love Dragon Ball. And thus I bring you revisions of the remaining timeline pages. I was surprised to read that I stopped at 19 in the last update, because I only started at 22 this month. I must have done 20-21 last year. Either way, I plan to quickly go over the previous pages again to check for inconsistencies, because three years is a long time. But I wanted to get this online first, since I set a deadline of April 18th, and somehow I actually made it. Even in JST!

So I don’t want to make any big promises, but as I worked on this, I was simultaneously working on something else that you could call future-proofing. It will make more sense to explain it once I get to the character bio section again, so stay tuned, I guess.

In the more immediate future (all four of them), I have some images to edit, and/or some weak attempts at text alternatives to make. I may even do newer, slightly better scans, but it’s still the same scanner I used 7-8 years ago to do the first versions, and I’m not interested in replicating the book in pristine quality. Tackling this issue is the next thing on my agenda after some other site projects, but I can’t say how soon that will be. Definitely before 2018, at least.
