In this post, I'd like to address some questions that I have been asked rather often, so you don't have to ask me them again! If you have any other questions please leave them in the comments, and if I find them suitable I will edit the post to include them.

Where do I buy JoJo?
Glad you asked! Part 3 has a licensed release by Viz. It's relatively inexpensive, the translation is a delight to read, and you're supporting JoJo in English! It's also a total dick to find in brick and mortar stores, so pick it up online; Amazon is good, or your other favorite online retailer. For the other arcs, if you're lucky enough to live near a Kinokuniya, you can pick them up there or special order any of the volumes; you can also buy Ultra Jump there for the latest chapters of SBR and some nifty SBR giveaways on occasion! If you don't, try an online japanese bookstore. The one I used to use closed down, so you may just have to use Google for that; the ISBNs for each volume are on Wikipedia. If you want Rohan au Louvre, ships internationally, which is how I got my copy; if you're in Canada, however, it may be cheaper to buy it from instead.

Part 3 scans are yellow and nasty, are you going to redo them?
No. Never. Don't even THINK about it. Screw you.

Are you going to be redoing part 4?
Go talk to our friends over at Invincible Trio about that. They're redoing part 4, not us.

Why do you use 'quotation marks' all over the place?
Because Araki. No seriously, because Araki.

When are you redoing part 5?
When SBR is finished.

WHY would you redo part 5?
Because I have a similar painting of a Buddhist valley.

How long does it take to do a chapter?
For a standard 40-60 page Ultra Jump SBR chapter, the team ends up putting in an average of 15-30 hours. Sometimes more.
