Upcoming Projects: A Tale of Assistance

As some of you might have guessed, those of us at JoJo Project aren't always working on JoJo 100% of the time! Freshy and I work on a few side projects assisting other groups, which I'd like to pimp out.

Freshy, who is not just a fantastic translator but also one of the best people I've ever met, is helping out or good friends over at The Invincible Trio with their ongoing effort to retranslate part 4. As much as the current translations have a certain quaint charm to them ("What a beautiful Duwang!"), the series really shines when you have a proper translation, and these wonderful people are trying to make that a reality. Check them out!

As for myself, I'm currently in a three-way collaborative project with Hox (the translator of what feels like 1/2 of the manga I read) and the good folks at Anonymous Delivers (the team who works on Litchi Hikari Club) to bring you a newer and lesser known manga by Usamaru Furuya called "La Croisade des Innocents," a semi-historical manga which tells the story of the apocryphal Children's Crusade of 1212 in typical Furuya fashion. Those of you who like that sort of thing will want to check out Volume 1 when it's finished.

...and don't worry, guys! We totally know what we're doing and this won't hinder the speed of your SBR releases in the slightest.
