Here we go! Kamen Rider W is back with a new manga sequel and we’re bringing it to you! I’m handling QC and distro and the rest of the main team is listed below. While releases will be posted here for visibility, the main project site is located at fuutotantei.tumblr.com. Torrents will be posted to the OZC-Live Anidex account, with DDLs available on the main project site and backed up on the Kamen Rider W series account here. Lastly, the release is posted as a .CBZ which can be used with most comic readers, or simply change the extension to .zip to open it as a regular zip folder! Enjoy!

  1. so you are actually doing manga of this huh; I was kind of hoping someone would do the Masked Rider Kuuga manga which is up to 6-7 volumes by now.

    1. I’m just helping with QC and distro, and pitching in to buy the issues the chapters are included in. The heavy lifting is done by the rest of the team. We’re just distroing it through my site because there’s a lot of W fans that follow me thanks to the BD encodes, so it gets more eyes on the releases.

    1. Already was submitted there and is pending approval last I checked. Crt handled that one. I’ll probably add the link to it here once the approval goes through, but the link can be found on the FuutoTantei site in the post.

  2. Pretty good for a first release. I think you guys might want to get an editor or take a little time to smooth the translation out a bit in the future because it comes off as somewhat stilted and literal. Don’t get me wrong, it could be far worse, but it’s something to consider.

    1. Definitely noted. What I’d like to do, at least in the long run, is to try and clean it up as much as I can when we get a new chapter, and then take some time to smooth it over more later for whatever manner of batch we do, along with fixing typos and any potential translation errors that pop up, or “retcons” (not really what I mean but it’s the best word I can think of here). Obviously, this is just my perspective from the QC angle, and I’d say that the first and biggest goal is delivering an accurate translation even if it’s a bit stilted, but I agree that there is room for improvement.

  3. Wow, didn’t saw that coming. That’s awesome. Are you gonna translate the Kyuranger manga as well ? (The one included in the BD BOX)

    1. The next chapter is scheduled to be printed in the 8/21 issue. The TL’ed release will be whenever the team is done with it.

  4. Yay! Glad someone is working on it. If you need help with proofreading hit me up – I have quite a bit of copyediting experience and I’d love to help out!

    And thank you… I’ve been anxiously waiting for this and the timing was good, I had a horrible commute home tonight so this is exactly the treat I needed!

  5. I don’t know where to post my suggesstion to you, I have read you have some financial problems running the site and other related stuff, your Donate icon link have the credit cards but you forgot to include Paypal as well.

    If I have time I will put my grain of salt. 🙂

    1. The site’s not having “financial problems” by any means. In fact, I work a 2nd job now that allows me to more comfortably purchase the BDs. I added the donation link since we were soliciting donations to help us with the cost of the Brave BD, which cost almost $200 for a 22-minute episode. I pay $50-60 less than that for a 12 episode BD box. It was far more expensive a purchase than I’d have ever made regardless of how much I wanted it on BD. But since we knew we could sell the Gashat for a small bit and I had at least $40 lined up as a donation to help with it, I went ahead and got it.

      As for the donation link, it is a PayPal donation button so it accepts credit cards and PayPal.
